DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Start gives no warranties with respect to any aspect of the events or activities, or any materials related thereto or offered at an event and, to the fullest extent possible under the laws governing this Agreement, disclaims all implied warranties, including but not limited to warranties of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy, timeliness, and merchantability. The events and activities are provided on an “as-is” basis. Neither Start nor its affiliates accept any responsibility or liability for reliance by you or any person on any aspect of an event or activity, or any information provided at an event or activity.
Except as required by law, neither Start nor its affiliates shall be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential costs, damages or losses arising directly or indirectly from the Event or other aspect related thereto or in connection with this Agreement.
The maximum aggregate liability of Start for any claim in any way connected with, or arising from, an event, activity, or this Agreement, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise (including any negligent act or omission), shall be limited to the amount paid by you to Start under this Agreement.
Start and its affiliates do not claim any rights to Participant’s intellectual property. Sharing your idea or concept may be deemed a public disclosure, so if you are interested in filing a patent, you may need to consult with a patent attorney before entering the competition. Nondisclosure Agreements (NDAs) between a competitor and the judges and/or audience members will not be allowed. Start Peninsula doesn’t support or take part in the signing of any legal documents at the events themselves, and while mentors with legal backgrounds may be present and able to give general legal advice, they are not permitted to give specific legal counsel. If you’re concerned, you can limit your pitch to the rough outline of the idea without giving away key information.
By participating in an event or activity, each Participant grants Start, its successors and assigns a non-exclusive, perpetual, non-cancelable, right and license to edit, modify, adapt, translate, exhibit, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer of, reproduce, copy, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, display and otherwise use all and/or any part of such Participant’s names, likenesses, photographs, voices and images of all persons referenced and/or appearing in materials generated at the event, without limitation, anywhere in the world in any form (tangible or intangible, permanent or ephemeral, including, without limitation, audio, video, print, electronic, written, and photographic) and via any transmission medium (including, without limitation, television, radio, Internet, and print) now existing or that may exist in the future for advertising, trade, promotion, publicity and other related purposes without compensation and without notice to or consideration, review or approval from Participant.
Each Participant further agrees to (i) be questioned or interviewed (whether in person or by other means such as in person, email, phone or other electronic media), filmed and/or photographed and available for interviewing, filming, photography and for other public relations, marketing and promotional activities associated with Start, as reasonably required, (ii) allow Start to make contact with the Participant (whether in person, by phone, email or otherwise) for the purpose of requesting further information from the Participant in relation to their participation or for any other purpose related to the event. Each Participant represents and warrants that neither its participation, nor Start exercise of any of the rights granted to it under these Terms will (a) infringe or violate any rights of any third party or entity, including, without limitation, those relating to patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, moral rights, mask works, defamation, privacy, publicity, false light, misappropriation, confidentiality, and/or any contractual or other rights recognizable under any applicable law, rule, regulation, ordinance, judgment or decree (collectively, “Law”), or (b) otherwise violate any applicable Law.
