By submitting this application, I hereby consent to the recording, use and reuse by Producer, and any of their respective licensees, assignees, parents, subsidiaries, or affiliated entities and each of their respective employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors (collectively "Releasees") of my voice, actions, likeness, name, appearance, biographical material, and any information contained in or derived from my application(s) to be a participant in the Program, including, without limitation, any photos or videotapes submitted by me, editorial comments made by me or about me, and any audio, video or other recordings or still pictures of me taken during the participant selection process or contained in any materials or documents submitted by me in connection with my application (collectively "Likeness") as such may be edited, altered, or modified by Producer or any of the Releasees in their sole discretion, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, worldwide in perpetuity, in or in connection with the Program, including, without limitation, in advertisements, promotions, publicity, marketing, merchandising, or in any other manner. I agree that the Releasees may use all or any part of my Likeness, and may alter or modify it regardless of whether or not I am recognizable. I further agree that Releasees exclusively own all right, title, and interest (including, without limitation, all copyrights) in and to any recordings made by any of the Releasees as well as any video that I have provided in connection with my application and any other materials that I have provided or may provide in connection with the Program (the "Materials") including, without limitation, the right to edit, alter or modify the Materials and to use all or part of the Materials and my Likeness in any manner and in any and all media now known or hereafter devised worldwide, in perpetuity. I grant the rights hereunder whether or not I am selected to participate in the Program in any manner whatsoever. I release, hold harmless, and indemnify Releasees from any and all liability arising out of their recording or use of my Likeness and/or the Materials. I agree not to make any claim against Releasees as a result of the recording or use of my Likeness and/or the Materials (including, without limitation, any claim that such use defames me or invades any right of privacy and/or publicity).
By signing this application, to the maximum extent permitted by law, I hereby release, hold harmless and indemnify Producer and all other Releasees, and any television station or channel, cable network, or satellite network that exhibits the Program, the other participants in the Program, the advertisers connected with the Program, each of their respective parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, all other persons and entities connected with or engaged in connection with the Program, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, employees, contractors, successors, assignees, and licensees (herein the "Released Parties") from any and all claims, actions, damages, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses of any kind (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) arising out of, resulting from, or by reason of, my application for or participation on or in connection with the Program, including, without limitation, my participation in the participant selection process of the Program, any exploitation of the Program or my appearance on the Program, the failure of Producer to select me as a participant, the cancellation of the Program, any use of my Likeness or the Material, in connection with the Program, or the exercise by the Producer of any rights granted by me hereunder, on any legal theory whatsoever (including, but not limited to, personal injury, property damage, rights of privacy and publicity, false light, or defamation) (collectively the “Released Claims”). The Released Claims specifically include, without limitation, any and all claims, actions, damages, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses of any kind resulting from the actions of another participant or any other third party at any time.
I understand that the above release is a material inducement for you to proceed with the Program, and that Network and Producer and the other Released Parties may rely on this release in proceeding with the Program. I further understand and agree that all rights under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code and any similar law of any State or territory of the United States are hereby expressly waived by me. Said section reads as follows:
“1542. Certain claims not affected by general release. A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
I understand that neither I nor anyone else will be paid for my granting the above rights, or for my signing this agreement. My participation in the casting process for the Program, and in the Program itself, do not constitute a performance and will not entitle me to wages, salary, or other compensation. I agree and acknowledge that no one (including Producer) has asked me for any money or other consideration to be considered for participation in the Program.
I authorize Producer to investigate, access and collect information about me, about any of the statements made by me in my application, any supporting documents and any other document that I have signed or do sign in connection with my application to be selected as a participant in the Program, or any other written or oral statements I make in connection therewith, and hereby waive all rights of privacy or confidentiality that I might otherwise have in such information. I acknowledge and agree that any such information obtained by Producer pursuant to this paragraph or otherwise may be used for purposes of selecting participants in the Program, and may be described or otherwise related in and in connection with the Program, including, without limitation, in advertisements, promotions, publicity, marketing, and merchandising, and in any other manner.
I have read and fully understand this release form, and I agree to abide by and be bound by them and by any eligibility requirements determined by Producer in its sole discretion. I acknowledge that in order to participate in the Program, I will be required to complete and sign such additional documents as Producer may require, including without limitation an Applicant Agreement and Release, prior to participating.
I HEREBY CERTIFY THAT ALL OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ABOVE AND IN THIS
APPLICATION IS TRUE AND COMPLETE. I UNDERSTAND THAT ANY FALSE STATEMENT OR MATERIAL OMISSION BY ME MAY LEAD TO MY DISQUALIFICATION FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM AND/OR THE PARTICIPANT SELECTION PROCESS FOR THE PROGRAM.
