AGREEMENT

Sponsor and you, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

1. Services. For purposes of this Agreement, "Services" shall mean the provision by Sponsor of certain technological capabilities that allow you to register for an event or contest with Sponsor (each a "Sponsor Event") via the World Wide Web, including, without limitation, enabling you to pay any contest entry or registration fees (or any other fees) required by Sponsor via credit card payment. Sponsor’s sole duty is to provide you access to the Services on an "AS-IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis.

2. No Agency. You hereby agree and acknowledge that Sponsor is nothing more than a third-party facilitator to allow you to enter into a transaction with Sponsor. As such, you further agree and acknowledge that Sponsor shall, at all times, be an independent contractor providing the Services merely as a facilitator, rather than a co-venturer, agent, employee, or representative of either Sponsor or you.

3. Duties Limited. Sponsor shall perform only the duties expressly set forth herein and shall not be liable except for the performance of such duties and obligations as are specifically set forth in this Agreement and no further duties or responsibilities shall be implied. Sponsor shall have no liability under and no duty to inquire as to the provisions of any agreement other than this Agreement and the Refund Policy. Sponsor shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of any other agreements or the truth or accuracy of anything arising out of or related to any Sponsor Event.

4. Content Policy. As a condition to your use of the Site, you agree not to: (a) Upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any information, materials or other content that is illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or offensive; or that infringes another's rights, including any intellectual property rights; (b) Impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity; or obtain, collect, store or modify personal information about other users; (c). Upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation; (d) Modify, adapt or hack the Site or falsely imply that some other site is associated with the Sponsor’s Sites or We Are Communities; or (e) Use the Site for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Sites, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).

5. Disputes with Sponsor; Reliance. You are solely responsible for your interactions, transactions or (attempted) with Sponsor. You will not hold Sponsor responsible for Sponsor’s actions or inactions, including things related to any Sponsor Event (whether offered, promoted or cancelled by Sponsor) or any other offer made by Sponsor. We have no control over and do not guarantee the truth or accuracy of any advertisements or other content that might be reproduced or published by anyone other than by Sponsor. YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SPONSOR DOES NOT OPERATE, ADMINISTRATE, CONTROL OR OTHERWISE OWN ANY CONTEST/PROMOTIONS PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. If you have a dispute with Sponsor, you release Sponsor (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes or your use of the Service. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says:

A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.

6. Limitation of Liability. EXCEPT IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE SUCH PROVISIONS ARE RESTRICTED, IN NO EVENT WILL SPONSOR BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING ALSO LOST PROFITS ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE OR ANY SPONSOR EVENT, EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED HEREIN AND TO THE FURTHEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SPONSOR'S LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, AND REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WILL AT ALL TIMES BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF $25.00 OR THE AMOUNTS SPONSOR PAYS SPONSOR DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE COMPLETION OF YOUR TRANSACTION VIA USE OF THE SERVICE.

7. Hold Harmless; Covenant Not To Sue. You agree to indemnify and hold Sponsor, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and other partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including charge-backs initiated by your credit card company and reasonable attorney's fees, due to or arising out of your use of the Service. You further agree, to the furthest extent permitted by law, to refrain from making any claim against Sponsor arising out of or related to any Sponsor Event, including, without limitation, refraining from filing any lawsuit or demand for arbitration against Sponsor.

8. Governing Law; Arbitration. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to contracts entered into and wholly to be performed within the State of California by California residents. Any controversy between the parties hereto involving any claim arising out of or relating to a breach of this Agreement shall be submitted to and be settled by final and binding arbitration in San Francisco, California, in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"). The arbitrator shall determine a prevailing party. The prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs (including arbitrators’ costs).

9. Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement and the Refund Policy, and the terms and documents incorporated by reference herein or therein, constitutes the entire agreement between Sponsor and you relative to the subject matter hereof and shall be binding upon the parties hereto and upon their heirs, administrators, representatives, executors, successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of said parties. Any previous agreement or negotiations between Sponsor and you concerning the subject matter hereof is superseded by this Agreement. In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

10. Basis of Bargain. EACH PARTY RECOGNIZES AND AGREES THAT THE DISCLAIMERS, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, AND LIABILITY AND REMEDY LIMITATIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE MATERIAL, BARGAINED FOR BASES OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT AND REFLECTED IN DETERMINING THE CONSIDERATION TO BE GIVEN BY EACH PARTY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, VIA USE OF THE SERVICE BY YOU, AND IN THE DECISION BY EACH PARTY TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.

11. Refund Policy. Entry fees in any contest offered through Sponsor’s web sites are Non-Refundable. Due to the cost associated with prizes and administration of the contest, no refunds, discounts, or concessions of any kind can be given to the participant of the site. Any contestant that disputes the charge associated with entering the Sponsor’s contest will be charged a $25.00 fee plus could be subject to disqualification from the event.
