I, the entrant (referred to as “I” or “Me”) voluntarily agree to this Consent and Release (referred to as “Agreement”) in consideration for my participation in a Tasti D-Lite LLC production or a promotional/media event. I understand that all references in this Agreement to Tasti D-Lite LLC include Tasti D-Lite and its clients, successors, assigns, franchisees, and licensees (referred to as “us” or “we”).

I agree as follows:

1. I consent to Tasti D-Lite recording my voice, name, likeness, image, appearance, words, speech, and/or performance (referred to as “My Images”). I agree that the recording may be created in any form, including but not limited to photography, video recording, and digital recording, and may be transferred or duplicated using any form of media now known or later developed, including but not limited to digital imaging, computer media file, videotape, film, slides, photographs and audio tapes.
2. I agree that Tasti D-Lite has the full, royalty-free, unrestricted and irrevocable right to produce, use, copy, distribute, exhibit and transmit My Images, including without limitation the right to edit, mix or duplicate and to use or re-use My Images in whole or part as Tasti D-Lite may elect.
3. I acknowledge that any recording taken of Me under the terms of this Agreement becomes the sole and exclusive property of Tasti D-Lite or its client in perpetuity. I also agree that Tasti D-Lite or its client shall in its sole discretion decide if, when, and how My Images are to be used.
4. I understand and agree that I have no right to review or pre-approve My Images or demand that Tasti D-Lite edit, not use, stop using or delete My Images regardless of the reason, including but not limited to: a claim that My Images portray me in an unflattering light; that I am no longer associated with Tasti D-Lite or the underlying production: or that I want to control my personal image.
5. I release Tasti D-Lite from any and all claims I might otherwise have to control My Images including but not limited to: claims based on a violation of the right to privacy or right to publicity, defamation; or claims to royalties or compensation of any kind. I agree that this Agreement is binding on Me and anyone who may have rights through me, including but not limited to my legal heirs, personal representatives, trustees, or assigns. I also agree that neither I nor they have a right to bring any claim or legal action of any kind against Tasti D-Lite.
6. I understand and agree that Tasti D-Lite owns all copyrights and intellectual property rights to My Images which include, but are not limited to: the right to broadcast, exhibit, market, sell and otherwise distribute My Images, in whole or in parts, alone or with other products, for commercial or non-commercial television or theater, closed-circuit exhibition, home video distribution, online, website, Internet-based posting or distribution or any other purpose that Tasti D-Lite in its sole discretion may determine. This includes the right to use My Images for promoting or publicizing any of the uses and the right to transfer ownership of the copyrights in My Images.
7. I represent and warrant to Tasti D-Lite that I am free to enter into this agreement without restriction and that this agreement does not conflict with any existing contracts or agreements to which I am a party. I am of the age of eighteen (18) and enter into this Agreement freely without coercion.
8. I understand that Tasti D-Lite is relying on my consent with this Agreement. Tasti D-Lite would not agree to allow me to participate in the production if I did not sign this Agreement. If I attempt to rescind or deny the rights granted pursuant to this Agreement, Tasti D-Lite will be significantly and irreparably harmed.
9. I agree to hold Tasti D-Lite harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, or damages that may arise either directly or indirectly from the use of My Images in the production, or from the attempt by Me or anyone who claims rights through Me to deny the effect or validity of this Agreement.
