Acceptance of Terms. As used below, the term “ROTR Event” means an event, competition, gathering, promotion, meet-up or the like that is organized or hosted by Revolution or its affiliates in order to promote the “Rise of the Rest” platform or in connection with the Rise of the Rest Seed Fund or affiliated funds. In order to participate or attend a ROTR Event you must agree to the terms in this section. If you find that you cannot or will not agree to such terms, please do not apply for a pitch competition, RSVP to or attend any ROTR Event. If you apply for a pitch competition or RSVP to any ROTR Event through the Site, you signal that you have read, understand and agree to these event terms.
Photos/Videos Waiver. Revolution and its representatives sometimes take photos and videos at ROTR Events, and later use them for promotional purposes. By participating or attending any ROTR Event, you irrevocably grant Revolution and its licensees, the perpetual, exclusive and unencumbered rights to:
- record your participation in and appearance at the ROTR Event on videotape, audiotape, film, photograph, or any other medium (the “Recordings”);
- use your name, likeness, voice, and biographical material in connection with the Recordings and the ROTR Event;
- use, reproduce, edit, modify, transmit, store, publish, or create derivative works based upon the Recordings, as well as exhibit, broadcast, market, promote, stream, sublicense or distribute such Recording, for editorial, commercial, promotional, or any other purpose, in whole or in part in any form of media, an unlimited number of times, worldwide.
Assumption of risk/release of liability/indemnity. You (for yourself, your heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, and anyone else who might make a claim on your behalf) hereby release, waive, discharge and convent not to sue Revolution and its respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, funds, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, contractors, vendors, sponsors and volunteers from any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses or expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) which may arise out of, result from, or related in any way to your attendance at any ROTR Event, except for any gross negligence or willful misconduct on Revolution’s part.
You further agree to indemnify and hold Revolution, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, funds, officers, directors, partners, shareholders, members, agents, employees, contractors and representatives harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party due to, related to, or connected with your attendance or conduct at any ROTR Event.
COVID-19. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. You assume all risks, hazards, and dangers arising from or relating in any way to the risk of contracting a communicable disease or illness—including, without limitation, exposure to COVID-19 or any other bacteria, virus, or other pathogen capable of causing a communicable disease or illness, whether that exposure occurs before, during, or after the ROTR Event, and regardless of how caused or contracted—and you hereby waive any and all claims and potential claims against Revolution and ROTR Event organizers relating to such risks, hazards, and dangers.
These Terms represent the entire agreement between you and us with regard to the Site. These Terms and our relationship with you are governed by the laws of the District of Columbia, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. Any cause of action that may arise under these Terms must be brought in the appropriate court in the District of Columbia, and you submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located there. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in that provision, and the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
