By participating in a Twitter Giveaway (a "Promotion") promoted by @IIAIC (collectively the "IIA Account" or “IIA”), you agree to these Official Twitter Giveaway Rules, which are a contract, so read them carefully before participating. Without limitation, this contract includes indemnities to the released parties from you and a limitation of your rights and remedies. The contract will refer to you as "you" or "Participant."
The details and requirements for entry or participation in any Promotion shall be provided by the IIA Account from time to time, in the discretion of the IIA Account. Participants must follow the directions provided by IIA Account and otherwise be bound by and follow these Official Twitter Giveaway Rules to be eligible to receive a prize in connection with any Promotion.
IIA Account will determine giveaway recipients in its sole and absolute discretion. If a Promotion prize recipient is determined to be ineligible, IIA Account may, in its sole and absolute discretion, not give away the goods or services or may give the goods or services to the next eligible follower. You will be required to privately (through Twitter direct message, email, or other secure, private means) provide your name, address, age and other personal information necessary to receive the prize, if you are selected as a Promotion prize recipient. Except for Winner Information (defined below), IIA Account will not keep or store your information or use it for any purpose other than sending your giveaway item(s) or providing you information on receiving the item(s). Promotions are subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules or regulations and these Official Twitter Giveaway Rules.
For and in consideration of being a Participant in the Promotion and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which you hereby acknowledge, you hereby confirm that any and all materials submitted by you in connection with the Promotion including, without limitation, any photographs, are and/or were created for IIA Account and shall constitute "works made for hire" (as defined under the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 and for the purpose of all other copyright laws throughout the world) and that IIA Account shall be considered the author thereof and shall own all rights (under copyright and otherwise) in and to any and all such materials throughout the universe, in perpetuity, with all right to make such changes in, and such uses and exploitations thereof, for all media now known and hereafter devised, as IIA Account may determine in its sole discretion (including without limitation the right to refrain from doing so). If it is determined that any such materials do not qualify as "works made for hire," then you hereby irrevocably assign, transfer and convey such materials to IIA Account to the full extent had they so qualified.
Each winner of a prize in a Promotion is solely responsible for any and all applicable federal, state and local taxes (including income and withholding taxes on any prize), regardless of whether the prize, in whole or in part, is used. The ARV of any prize is based on available information provided to IIA Account and the value of any prize awarded to a Promotion winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law.
By participating in a Promotion, you agree to (i) be bound by these Official Twitter Giveaway Rules, including all entry requirements provided at the time the Promotion is announced and/or promoted, and (ii) waive any and all claims against The Institute of Internal Auditors, Inc., and its directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, "Released Parties") for any injury, damage or loss of any kind that may occur, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from participation in the Promotion or from receipt or use of any Promotion prize (including, without limitation, any property loss, damage, personal injury or death caused to any person(s)). Each winning Participant, by acceptance of prize, grants to IIA and its designees the right to publicize his/her name, address (city and state of residence), photograph, voice, statements and/or other likeness and prize information for advertising, promotional and/or trade and/or any other purpose ("Winner Information") in any media or format now known or hereafter devised, throughout the world, in perpetuity, without limitation and without further compensation, consideration, permission or notification, unless prohibited by law. The releases hereunder are intended to apply to all claims not known or suspected to exist with the intent of waiving the effect of laws requiring the intent to release future unknown claims.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Twitter Giveaway Rules or the rights and obligations of participants or the Released Parties in connection with the Promotion will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the application of any other state's laws.
