5. RIGHTS IN PHOTOS.

By agreeing to be photographed by Benihana host/wait staff in conjunction with participation in this Contest, you grant Benihana National Corp., its subsidiaries, affiliates, successors and assigns a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, sublicensable, non-exclusive license to use, perform, exhibit, reproduce, distribute, and/otherwise exploit the photo in any manner and in any media now known or hereafter devised. The rights granted pursuant to this license include, without limitation, the right to (a) change, alter, distort, edit, or revise the photo; and (b) use, exploit, and make derivative works from the photo (such use includes but is not limited to marketing the Benihana brand), be it alone or in conjunction with other works of Sponsor’s sole choosing, in any and all media (now known or hereafter devised). You further waive any so-called “moral rights” in connection with the photo and acknowledge that you have no right of review or approval of any use of photo by Sponsor. Nothing herein in any way obligates Sponsor to use photo. You understand and agree that you will receive no compensation in conjunction with such grant of rights unless you are determined to be a prize winner as discussed herein.

If Sponsor suspects that the content of a photo infringes the rights of a third party (person or property owner), such photo will not be deemed a valid photo and will not count for the determination of winners as per Rule 4B, Rule 4C or Rule 4D, nor will an accountholder receive an additional entry in Rule 4A monthly drawing in conjunction with such invalid photo. In addition, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify from the Contest the person(s) involved with such photo. Sponsor may also declare a photo to be invalid under the following circumstances where the content of photo: (a) is unfit for publication (such as, nudity, racist content, violent acts, cruelty to animals, consumption of alcoholic beverages); (b) promotes a political, religious, commercial, charitable or other cause other than the Contest theme; and (c) advocates illegal conduct or use of firearms. In all cases, Sponsor disclaims any and all liability in conjunction with its determination that a given photo is invalid for the Contest.

Conversely, Sponsor’s initial determination that a photo is valid by allowing accountholder to post the photo is NOT binding upon Sponsor in any manner. Should Sponsor later determine that a given photo is invalid, Sponsor may take the action(s) outlined in the preceding paragraph, all without liability of any kind.

Without in any way limiting the foregoing, Sponsor reserves the right to condition validity of a photo upon accountholder substantiating that he/she is actually present in the photo, at Sponsor’s request. Sponsor may disqualify accountholder from the Contest outright or invalidate one (1) or more of his/her photos based upon the sufficiency/adequacy of proof furnished by accountholder in response to Sponsor’s request. Failure to timely respond to Sponsor’s request will result in disqualification from Contest. Again, should Sponsor determine that one (1) or more photos are invalid or if Sponsor disqualifies accountholder from the Contest, Sponsor shall not have any liability of any kind.

Should Sponsor decide to post a tally or counter as to the number of photos of participating unique Benihana locations and/or photos of any participating Benihana locations and/or entries/additional entries accrued by a given person, Sponsor may alter, modify or edit such tally/counter at any time without notice or liability of any kind. Such tallies/counters are intended solely for informational purposes. Accountholders are encouraged to maintain their own records as to their participation in the Contest.

Except where prohibited by law, by participating in the Contest, you grant Sponsor and its designees the right to 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, your name, portrait, picture, voice, likeness and biographical information as news or information and for advertising, trade and promotional purposes without compensation, and without review, approval or further notice. You further agree, upon Sponsor's request and without compensation, to use your best efforts to obtain a release from other person(s) appearing in any photo in which you are included in conjunction with the Contest.

By submitting an entry, you indemnify, release and agree to hold harmless Sponsor and Facebook from any and all liability associated with use of photo (including posting of photo on any website), including your express acknowledgment that (a) you assume full liability (with Sponsor and Facebook having no liability) with respect to any third party’s claim that your appearance in a photo violated such third party’s rights in any respect (including but not limited to defamation, libel, violation of right of publicity or right of privacy, violation of trademark rights or copyright); (b) the photo as posted by Sponsor on websites may differ from the photo as originally taken by Benihana host/wait staff , due to technological limitations/malfunctions/errors or other causes; and (c) the photo may be displayed by Sponsor on websites in any order, pattern, sequence or format and such order/pattern/sequence/format may or may not be rotated by Sponsor in its sole discretion.

You further expressly acknowledge that Sponsor does not owe you a duty of confidence (or fiduciary duty or the like) with regard to any photo taken of you in conjunction with the Contest; and (b) Sponsor has wide access to ideas, stories, videos, designs and other literary/artistic materials submitted to it from outside sources or being developed by its employees and that such ideas/stories/videos/designs/literary/artistic materials may be competitive with, similar to (or even identical to) the photo(s) taken of you for the Contest and that Sponsor shall have no liability to you in conjunction therewith.

6. GENERAL CONDITIONS: Maximum of one (1) Rule 4A (monthly drawing) prize and one (1) prize under Rule 4B or Rule 4C or Rule 4D per person/family/household. For the avoidance of doubt, the one (1) prize limit under Rule 4B or Rule 4D shall be satisfied by the actual trip prize or the consolation prize. Gift card prizes are subject to terms and conditions of use as indicated thereon. Sponsor is not responsible for costs associated with trip prizes other than what is specifically listed in Rule 4 above including but not limited to incidentals, transportation to and from departure airport or hotel, taxes and gratuities. Federal, state and local taxes (as applicable) are the sole responsibility of winners. For Grand Prizes and First Place Prize, winner will be issued an IRS 1099 Tax Form for the fair market value of prize won; and, winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsor in its fulfillment of its tax reporting obligations as per applicable law. Potential winners will be notified by email and may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Prize Acceptance Form within 10 days of the date on notification materials. Noncompliance within this requirement (as applicable) may result in disqualification and an alternate potential winner may be selected as per Rule 4 above. If any potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days of first notification attempt, if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, if any potential winner rejects his/her prize or in the event of noncompliance with these Contest Rules, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected as per Rule 4 above.
