The following page specifically details that you need a trademark license.


Starting at the section "Restricted use that requires a trademark licence".

"If you wish to have permission for any of the uses above or for any 
other use which is not specifically referred to in this policy, please 
contact us and we'll let you know as soon as possible if your proposed 
use is permissible. Note that due to the volume of mail we receive, it 
may take up to a week to process your request. "
