The FAIRY GODMOTHER CHALLENGE Contest (the “Contest”) is sponsored by Rent the Runway, Inc., 345 Hudson Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10014 (“RTR”) (the “Sponsor”) and promoted and operated through the Instagram (the “Contest Site”). The Contest begins on December 4, 2018 at 12:00 AM Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) (the “Start Date”) and ends on December 20, 2018 at 11:59 PM EST (the “End Date”) (such period, the “Contest Period”). BY ENTERING OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATING IN THE CONTEST, ALL ENTRANTS AND OTHER PARTICIPANTS AGREE TO ABIDE BY THESE OFFICIAL RULES, WHICH ARE FINAL AND BINDING ON ALL MATTERS PERTAINING TO THIS CONTEST.
1. ELIGIBILITY AND REGISTRATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CONTEST.
a. Submission Materials and Entries. An Entrant’s participation in the Contest involves the submission of Entrant’s materials as indicated in Sponsor’s Contest kick-off post on the Contest Site (and as detailed in this Official Rules) (such materials, Entrant’s “Submission Materials”). Once the Submission Materials have been deemed entered into the Contest by Sponsor in its sole discretion, such Submission Materials will be deemed to be an “Entry” by such Entrant for purposes of the Contest.
b. Submission Requirements. In order to be deemed eligible for the Contest, all of an Entrant’s Submission Materials must meet all of the following requirements (collectively, the “Submission Requirements”): (i) all Submission Materials must comply with all of the terms, conditions and requirements set forth in these Official Rules, and the Terms of Service; and (ii) all Submission Materials must be submitted through the Contest Site, and must adhere to the Post criteria and limitations set forth therein.
c. Submissions. Submission Materials may be submitted to the Contest during the Contest Period. All Submission Materials will be deemed to be non-confidential and may be used on a non-restricted basis. Submission Materials may be made available for public viewing via the Contest Site, @renttherunway’s Instagram feed or stories, or other RTR social media channels, at any time after submission, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. All Submission Materials must be the submitting Entrant’s original, sole work. By participating in the Contest in any manner, you represent and warrant to Sponsor that Nominee will accept the nomination in the Post and agree and acknowledge that your Post will be subject to disqualification from the Contest if Nominee does not accept the nomination. Any Submission Materials that fail to fulfill all of the Submission Requirements, eligibility criteria, and other requirements set forth in these Official Rules may, upon Sponsor’s discovery of such failure, be subject to disqualification from the Contest and may not be entered into the Contest. No responsibility is assumed by Sponsor for lost, late, incomplete, illegible, inaccessible, corrupted, or otherwise unusable Submission Materials or Entries; any computer, telephone, cable, network, satellite, server, service provider, electronic or Internet hardware or software malfunctions, email server malfunctions, failures, connections, or availability; garbled or jumbled files or transmissions; service provider, Internet, web site, or software inaccessibility or unavailability (including any inaccessibility or unavailability of the Contest Site); Internet traffic congestion; or unauthorized intervention. Throughout the Contest Period, Sponsor shall have the right to take whatever actions Sponsor deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion to protect the Contest Entities and the operation of the Contest, including without limitation the disqualification of the Entrant who submitted such Submission Materials or to whom such Entry is attributable.
d. License to Submission Materials. For clarity, as between you and Sponsor, you will retain ownership of your Submission Materials, provided, however, that if the Submission Materials incorporate any content owned by Sponsor, such content will continue to be owned by Sponsor, and nothing herein authorizes you to use such content for any purpose. By submitting your Submission Materials, you grant to Sponsor a world-wide, royalty-free, fully paid-up, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, and fully sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) license, without additional consideration to you or any third party, to: (a) reproduce, distribute, transmit, perform and display (publicly or otherwise), make available to the public, adapt, modify, edit, translate, make, sell, offer to sell, import and otherwise use and exploit (and have others exercise such rights on behalf of Sponsor through multiple tiers) your Submission Materials, any ideas accompanying, related to, or embodied in your Submission Materials, and any materials embodying, incorporating, or derived from your Submission Materials, in any format or media now known or hereafter developed (including without limitation Internet, cable, satellite, mobile, and wireless media); (b) create derivative works from your Submission Materials and incorporate your Submission Materials into other works or into Sponsor’s or its respective designees’ products or services, including without limitation by embedding or incorporating advertisements into, before, or after or displaying advertisements adjacent to or otherwise in connection with, the Submission Materials; (c) rate, review, evaluate, and judge your Submission Materials and permit third parties to do so; (d) exercise all copyright, trademark, publicity and other proprietary rights with regard to your Submission Materials; (e) use your name, photograph, portrait, picture, voice, likeness and biographical information as news or information and for advertising or promotional purposes, whether or not in connection with your Submission Materials; and (f) use your Submission Materials for the purpose of promoting the Contest, Sponsor, Sponsor’s products or services, or for any other advertising or promotional purposes. The foregoing license shall survive any termination or expiration of this Submission Agreement for any reason.
All Submission Materials will be deemed to be non-confidential and may be used on a non- restricted basis. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO GRANT THE RIGHTS GRANTED IN THIS SECTION 2, PLEASE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE CONTEST.
3. THE CONTEST.
a. Determining the Winners. On or about December 4, 2018 – December 20, 2018, (the “Winner Determination Period”), Sponsor will review eligible Entries for conformity to the rules and will select certain Nominees as potential winners (each, a “Potential Winner”). Entries will be judged based on various criteria including, but not limited to, creativity and imagination. For the avoidance of doubt, each Potential Winner will be selected only from amongst those Entries that complied with all of the requirements for participation in the Contest. Sponsor will notify Potential Winners via direct message on the Contest Site. Once the Potential Winners complete the Clearance Process defined below (which may include submitting a fully completed Affidavit of Eligibility and Release) a Potential Winner will be named a “Winner” (for the avoidance of doubt there may be up to 100 Winners). In connection therewith, no amounts or other consideration shall be due to Entrant or Nominee for any exploitation of the Winner’s Entry. The Winner will be awarded the “Prize” (described below). NO NOMINEE WILL BE DEEMED TO BE A WINNER, OR WILL BE AWARDED ANY PRIZE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SUCH NOMINEE’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY SPONSOR IN ITS DISCRETION, NOMINEE HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT SUCH VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE, AND NOMINEE HAS COMPLIED WITH ANY SPONSOR REQUIREMENTS.
b. Clearance Process. Each Potential Winner must complete the Clearance Process within two (2) days from the moment of notification to receive the “Prize”. Without limiting the foregoing and only if applicable, a Potential Winner who is a minor in his or her state of residence will be required to have his or her parent or legal guardian affirm in writing such Potential Winner’s acknowledgement and agreement to the Official Rules, in order to continue to participate in the Contest. Return of any Prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification and selection of an alternate Winner. If a Potential Winner does not reply to the notification within two (2) days of its issuance, is ineligible, or cannot or does not comply with the Official Rules, he/she will be disqualified, the Prize will be forfeited, and an alternate Winner may be selected, at Sponsor’s discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to provide an independent third party (the “Auditing Entity”) with all Entries submitted by each Potential Winner in order that such Auditing Entity may examine such Entries and confirm, subject to its and Sponsor’s discretion, that the Entries comply with these Official Rules. In the event that a Potential Winner elects to end his or her participation in the Contest, is unable to participate further in the Contest for any reason, or is, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, deemed to be ineligible to participate, Sponsor reserves the right to select alternate Potential Winner(s) in its sole discretion.
c. Prize for Winners (the “Prize”): The Prize for each Winner will be a redeemable promotional code for a free 1-year (12 month) subscription to Rent the Runway’s Unlimited Membership. (Approximate Retail Value of $1,908 without tax). All taxes (including without limitation federal, state, and local taxes) on or connected with the Prize, if any, and the reporting consequences thereof, and any other costs, fees, and expenses not explicitly stated herein, if any, are the sole responsibility of each Winner respectively. If any Winner is a minor in his or her state of residence (if applicable), the Prize will be awarded on such Winner’s behalf to such Winner’s parent or legal guardian, who must execute any releases and other documentation required by Sponsor (including without limitation an Affidavit of Eligibility and the Liability/Publicity Release described above). Prize may not be endorsed, transferred or substituted, except at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Specifics of the Prize are in Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the unlikely event that any portion of the Prize is cancelled, undeliverable, or unable to take place for any reason, each Winner agrees that Sponsor has no further obligations to such Winner other than delivery of the remainder of the Prize (if any), and no other additional compensation will be provided. In the event that any Winner (including, for any Winner who is a minor in his or her state of residence, his or her parent or guardian) is unable to comply with the terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules (including without limitation this Section 3(c)), Sponsor reserves the right to deem such individual ineligible and to select a new Winner (or Winners) from among the remaining Nominees.
a. General; List of Winners; License. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of such provision. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. After the end of the Contest Period, the name of the Winners and/or the Instagram accounts of the Winners may be posted to the Contest Site, and/or to another Sponsor-affiliated site or service. In addition to any other grants that may be granted in any other agreement entered into between Sponsor and any Winner, where permitted by law, each such individual agrees to grant to Sponsor, the Contest Entities, and their respective licensees, affiliates, and assigns, the right to print, publish, broadcast, and use, worldwide in any media now known or hereafter developed, including but not limited to the world wide web, at any time or times, such individual’s name, photograph, portrait, picture, voice, likeness and biographical information as news or information and for advertising and promotional purposes without additional consideration; and further without such additional compensation, appear for, or provide biographical information for use in, any presentation or other activity which may include filming/audio/video/electronic or other recordings and/or interviews, as may be determined from time to time by Sponsor in its sole discretion; and upon request, each such individual (or, if a minor, such individual’s parent or legal guardian) will provide written consent to the foregoing uses. For a list of Winners (available after January 7, 2019) please send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the “The Fairy Godmother Challenge Contest” – Winner List, c/o Rent The Runway, Inc., 345 Hudson Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10014, Attn: Legal Department.
