Exhibit re Ratification by Parent / Guardian of Minor or Conserved Person
IF THE SUBMITTER OF THE CONTENT IS BETWEEN 13 AND 18 YEARS OF AGE, OR IS UNDER A CONSERVATORSHIP OR GUARDIANSHIP, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PARENT, CONSERVATOR, OR LEGAL GUARDIAN READ AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
Dear parent or legal guardian or conservator, You agree that you are allowing your minor child or ward to submit Content to us, and you are consenting to your child or ward entering into the Agreement, or you, dear parent or guardian or conservator, ratify, co-sign, and enter into the Agreement, and each amendment, yourself, and on behalf of your child or ward. So even though we say “You,” if the Content submitter is under 18 years old or under a conservatorship it may be construed that it is the parent or legal guardian or conservator of the under 18 year old person who is the You entering into this Agreement, until the under 18 year old not under conservatorship becomes 18 at which time the under 18 year old is deemed to ratify and affirm this Contract, though the parent of guardian or conservator remains liable for certain things, like indemnification and defense. Sort of like a parent co-signing for a car loan: if the child misses payments the parent is still on the hook. We are entitled to rely upon the agreement hereto to be by a person18 years old or older and legally able and competent to enter into binding contracts. We may also send you an email with this Agreement within or attached to the email and require you to sign the Agreement again and email that back to us. If we do not send you that email that does not invalidate your execution of this Agreement. If we do send you that email and you do not sign the Agreement again and email that back to us that does not invalidate your execution of this Agreement.
I, the parent or legal guardian (referred to as “I” or “Guardian”) represent and warrant that I am either: (i) the parent (with sole or shared custody, as applicable) or (ii) the legal guardian of the minor child or conserved person (the “Minor”) (who is a User of the Services or submitting Content to You) and that I have the legal capacity to enter into irrevocable, binding agreements on behalf of the Minor. I, both individually and on behalf of the Minor and as the Minor’s parent or legal guardian, agree to be bound by all of the provisions of this Agreement. As a material part of the consideration inducing Pit Viper to enter into the foregoing Agreement with the Minor, including in relation to the Content and the possible benefits arising therefrom, I hereby: ratify and approve each and all of the terms, conditions, covenants, warranties, representations, rights, indemnities, releases and obligations contained in the agreement; agree to attempt to secure and to do nothing directly or indirectly to hinder or prevent the full performance thereof by the Minor; consent to the use of Minor’s Persoanlity Rights (e.g., name, likeness, and voice) as provided in the agreement, in and in connection with the production, distribution, exhibition, exploitation and promotion of the Content / Program; and irrevocably guarantee and warrant that Minor will not disaffirm or disavow the Agreement on the grounds that Minor is a minor at the date of the execution thereof, or on any other similar grounds.
This guarantee shall be applicable as well to any modification, amendment, extension, renewal or substitution of the agreement, and to the agreement as modified by any waiver. If Pit Viper elects to seek Court approval of this agreement, I, in consideration of the execution of the agreement by Pit Viper further agree to cooperate with Pit Viper to secure the approval, by a Court of competent jurisdiction, of the agreement. I agree to indemnify and hold the Releasees (as defined in the Agreement) harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, costs or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees which may arise from the breach or alleged breach by Minor or Guardian of the foregoing.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MY ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION(S) OR TYPING IN MY NAME BELOW CONSTITUTES MY WRITTEN AGREEMENT AND ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE AND MY INTENT TO BE CONTRACTUALLY AND LEGALLY BOUND BY AND TO THE Agreement .
