VIDEO CONTEST RULES

Please read these rules carefully. In addition to these rules, our general Terms of Service and Privacy Policy apply to all uses of Grandparents.com. In the event of a conflict between these rules and the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy, these rules shall prevail. Eligibility – Only to legal residents of the United States and the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico and all other territories) may apply. You must be 18 years of age or older at the time of submitting the video. Minors must have their parent or legal guardian submit videos for them using a valid email address of the parent or legal guardian. Employees, officers and directors of Grandparents.com ("Company") and/or its subsidiaries and sponsors (collectively the "Program Entities"), their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising, and marketing agencies, their immediate families (parent, child, sibling or spouse) and persons living in the same households as such individuals (whether related or not) are not eligible to apply. The decisions of the Company and Program Entities are final and binding in all respects. While every video will be reviewed, we cannot respond to every application. Moreover, anything you send us will not be returned and becomes property of Grandparents.com.

Releases – If you are submitting a video of a minor other than one for whom you are a parent or legal guardian, you must first obtain the consent of their parent or legal guardian to submit the video. By submitting the video, you represent and warrant that you have such consent and that our use of the video will not violate the rights of any third party, including but not limited to rights of privacy, publicity, copyright or contractual rights.

Any video submitted may be posted on the Site and displayed to other visitors. Such visitors may be asked to evaluate submitted videos and/or provide numerical or descriptive grades.
