In exchange for allowing you to enter the Competition, you hereby:

a. grant us the exclusive right to film, tape, sound record and photograph all your activities in connection with the Competition and (if applicable) any Prizes. Everything filmed, taped, or recorded of you by the Promoter shall be known as “Footage”.

b. assign to us fully all intellectual property rights over materials submitted by you in the competition and over any Footage in connection with the Competition, for the full term of any rights that may exist under any applicable law throughout the world. This means that we own all rights over materials submitted by you in the competition and in the Footage for as long as they exist.

Your moral rights include the right to be identified as the author and the right to object to derogatory treatment of your Material or the Footage.

b. Our use of your Material will not infringe any intellectual property or other rights of any third party (for example trademarks, copyright, privacy rights).

d. We shall not be liable for any delay in performing or partial or total failure to perform any of our obligations to the winner(s) and/or any Allowed Guests and/or parent(s)/legal guardian(s) under these Terms if such delay or failure is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control including without limitation delays, changes, disruptions, cancellations, diversions or substitutions howsoever caused including without limitation as a result of war, terrorist action or threatened terrorist action, strikes, hostilities, civil commotions, accidents, fire, flood or natural catastrophes or arising without limitation out of or in connection with (i) the activities of third party event organisers; (ii) any form of transportation (including but not limited to flights, trains, coaches, buses, ferries, taxis or cars); and/or (iii) by third parties providing accommodation included in the Prize. For the avoidance of doubt, the affected Winner(s) and/or any Allowed Guest(s) and/or parent(s)/legal guardian(s) shall be solely liable for any additional costs incurred as a result.
