(“Network”); (ii) I have answered (and will answer) all questions posed to me as part of my child’s application process honestly, accurately and to the best of my ability and knowledge; (iii) if any of the information that I provide to Eye Productions Inc. (“Producer”) is found to be false, Producer, in its sole and absolute discretion, may remove my child from the Program application process, and/or from the Program itself even if my child is ultimately selected as a participant; (iv) even if my child meets the eligibility requirements, Producer has no obligation to interview my child and/or select my child as a participant; (v) even if my child is selected as a participant, Producer has no obligation to produce the Program, and Network has no obligation to broadcast it, the Material (defined below) or my child’s participation therein, even if it is produced; (vi) all decisions by Producer concerning selection of participants and other matters is final and not subject to challenge or appeal; and (vii) Producer owns, and is not obligated to return or maintain (and may destroy), any materials submitted as part of my child’s application (including, but not limited to, videotapes, DVDs and photographs) whether or not my child is selected as a participant, and I have therefore been advised to provide Producer with copies (not originals) of the foregoing materials. For purposes of this release, “Producer” shall also be deemed to include each of Producer’s parents, licensees, assigns, subsidiary and affiliated companies, successors and assigns and their respective directors, officers, agents and employees.
