b. Failure to Meet Requirements. Submissions not meeting the requirements set forth in the Promotion Announcement, or that contain prohibited, inappropriate, or irrelevant content, as determined by LifeProof in its sole discretion, will not be eligible for judging and will be disqualified. All Submissions suspected by LifeProof, in its sole discretion, of violating the proprietary rights of any third party (including intellectual property rights and rights of privacy/publicity), or any local, state or federal law(s) will be disqualified. Publication of a Submission by LifeProof does not mean the Submission has been deemed by LifeProof to be in compliance with these Official Rules.
c. Submissions. LifeProof’s clock is the official time keeping device for the Contest. Submissions must be received by the date and time listed in the Promotion Announcement to qualify. No hand, mail or email deliveries will be accepted. Once you register and upload your Submission in the Contest, you may not further modify or edit your submission. The Participant will be identified in the manner set forth in the Promotion Announcement. In the event of dispute regarding the identity of a Participant, the dispute will be resolved by LifeProof in its discretion. Neither LifeProof nor any of its agents or affiliates will liable for any disputes between collaborators related to a Submission. Entries must be received during the Promotion Period. LifeProof is not responsible for late, lost, delayed, damaged, misdirected, incomplete, void, corrupted, garbled, illegible, and/or unintelligible entries, or for any problems, bugs or malfunctions Participants may encounter when submitting their entries. Only complete valid entries will be accepted. LifeProof will not verify receipt of entries. Participants must provide all information requested to be eligible to win. LifeProof reserves the right to disqualify false entries or entries suspected of being false. Incomplete, unreadable, or unintelligible entries, in the sole discretion of LifeProof, will be disqualified. All entries submitted become the sole property of LifeProof and will not be acknowledged or returned.
3. JUDGING CRITERIA. All entries will be judged based on criteria set forth in the Promotion Announcement. LifeProof’s decision will be final, and no binding correspondence will be entered into.
4. NOTIFICATION OF WINNER. The potential winner will be notified in the manner set forth in the Promotion Announcement.
5. PRIZE AWARD.
a. Prize. Subject to the terms of these Official Rules, once confirmed by LifeProof, the winner(s) of a Contest will be identified as set forth in the Promotion Announcement. The value of each prize is set forth in the Promotion Announcement.
b. Limit one prize per Participant. Potential winners are not entitled to any surplus between actual retail value of prize and stated approximate retail value (ARV); and any difference between stated ARV and actual value of the prize will not be awarded. No substitution, assignment, transfer, or cash redemption of prize will be allowed or provided; provided, however, that LifeProof reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value should the advertised prize become unavailable for any reason. Prizes may be subject to their own separate terms and conditions. Prizes may be awarded in the form of voucher(s), coupon(s) and/or gift card(s), in LifeProof’s sole discretion. If a potential winner is unable to participate in or accept the prize or any portion of the prize for any reason, LifeProof shall have no further obligation to the Participant. Neither LifeProof nor any of its prize suppliers will replace any lost or stolen prizes, cards or certificates. In no event will LifeProof be responsible for awarding more than the stated number of prizes.
6. ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS. The Promotion is void where prohibited or restricted by law, and is subject to applicable federal, state and local laws. The Promotion is subject to these Official Rules.
a. Originality. By participating in the Promotion, Participant warrants and represents that his or her Submission:
i. is original and has been legally created, and that Participant owns all rights to the Submission including, without limitation, the copyrights in the recording and the elements and performances contained therein;
ii. does not infringe the intellectual property, privacy or publicity rights or any other legal or moral rights of any third party;
iii. has not been entered in any previous contest or won any previous award;
iv. has not been published or distributed previously in any media; and
v. complies in all respects with the requirements set out in these Official Rules.
b. Third Party Rights. While Submissions may feature products from LifeProof and its affiliates, the Submission must not include the LifeProof logo unless it is physically part of a LifeProof product. Legal considerations may also restrict Participant’s ability to depict recognizable third party marks, copyrights, brands or other property without proper licenses. The Submission must not contain any elements that would infringe upon any third party’s rights (intellectual or otherwise), and must not include any commercial content that: (i) promotes any product or service other than one owned or branded by LifeProof, or (ii) disparages LifeProof, its affiliates, partners, customers, competitors or any third party in any way. This means that, all trademarks, service marks, copyrighted materials, including names on any and all props used in the filming of the Submission, and venues must be generic in nature. LifeProof’s determination as to whether Participant’s submission potentially violates the rights of any third party is final.
c. Permissions and Releases.
i. Participant acknowledges and agrees that he or she is responsible for obtaining any and all documents, policies and authorizations necessary to make the Submission and submit it to LifeProof in connection with the Promotion, including but not limited to publicity releases, permits and venue permissions, as may be necessary; and Participant represents and warrants to LifeProof that he or she has done so and can make written copies of such permissions available to LifeProof upon request.
ii. Participant specifically warrants and represents that he or she has obtained permission from each person whose name, image, likeness and/or voice (“Likeness”) is included in the Submission, and that such person(s) has/have granted Participant all necessary rights to use the person’s Likeness as described in these rules, and that Participant can make written copies of such permissions available to LifeProof upon request. If the Likeness of a minor is included, such grant of rights must include written permission from the minor’s parent or legal guardian authorizing the use of the minor’s likeness on behalf of the minor.
iii. The Submission must be produced using non-union (e.g., non-SAG) talent or talent that has not been and is not currently under any union or guild agreement that results in any ongoing obligations resulting from the use, exhibition or other exploitation of the Submission.
iv. Further, Participant warrants and represents that he or she has obtained written permission when filming any part of the Submission on private property not owned or controlled by Participant, where such permission is required.
d. Additional Content Limitations. The Submission must not include anything in its theme or language that would offend parents whose younger children view the Submission, and must not include any nudity, sex, explicit activity, violence or drug use, nor any references to same. The Submission must not contain content that would receive a rating higher than “G” under the U.S. Motion Picture Association of America standards.
e. License Grant. By uploading or otherwise making a Submission, Participant irrevocably grants LifeProof and its affiliates, legal representatives, assigns, agents and licensees, the unconditional, world-wide, irrevocable and perpetual right and permission, royalty-free, to reproduce, encode, store, copy, transmit, publish, post, broadcast, display, publicly perform, adapt, exhibit and/or otherwise use or reuse (without limitation as to when or to the number of times used), for any purpose, the Participant’s Submission and ideas and materials contained therein, including, but not limited to, the recording and the performances contained therein (in each case, as submitted or as edited/modified in any way by the LifeProof, in its sole discretion), as well as to use Participant’s Likeness, and/or statements regarding his/her participation in the Promotion (with or without using the Participant’s name) in any and all media without limitation as to time or territory, and without additional compensation or approval from the Participant, or any other party. Participant waives all intellectual property rights, privacy/publicity rights or other legal or moral rights that might preclude LifeProof’s use or modification of the Submission, and agrees not to sue or assert any claim against the LifeProof for the use of the Submission or Participant’s Likeness or statements. The grant of rights under this paragraph includes all rights of paternity, integrity, disclosure, and withdrawal and any other rights that may be known as or referred to as “moral rights” (“Moral Rights”). If Moral Rights cannot be assigned under applicable law, then to the full extent allowed by law, Participant hereby waives such Moral Rights in favor of LifeProof and consents to any action of LifeProof which would violate such Moral Rights in the absence of such consent.
f. Indemnification. Participant agrees to indemnify and hold LifeProof, and its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders or other partners, and any of their employees (collectively, the “Indemnitees”), harmless from any and all claims, damages, expenses, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) and liabilities (including settlements), brought or asserted by any third party against any of the Indemnitees due to or arising out of the Participant’s Submission in the Promotion, or the Participant’s conduct in creating any Submission or otherwise in connection with the Promotion, including but not limited to claims for trademark infringement, copyright infringement, violation of an individual’s right of publicity or right of privacy, or defamation. Participant further agrees to release LifeProof from any and all claims that any advertising, marketing or other materials subsequently produced, presented, and/or prepared by or on behalf of LifeProof infringes Participant’s rights with regard to any elements, characters or ideas contained in any submission in the Promotion.
