Terms and Conditions
Thank you for visiting www.beyounation.org (the “Website”), which is owned and operated by The Be You Nation (“BeYou Nation,” “BUDOU” “we” or “us”). Please take a moment to review these Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”). By using the Website or participating in the Helping Hands Campaign (“Campaign”), you (“Participant” or “you”) agree to be legally bound by all of the terms, conditions and notices contained or referenced herein. If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement please do not use the Website or participate in the Campaign.
The goal of the Campaign is to identify ways for The Be You Nation to help individuals in our community. We encourage you to use our Website to suggest ideas for the Campaign. Although we won’t be able to help everyone, we will carefully review your submission and will be in touch if your entry is selected. All ideas are welcome – there are no specific selection criteria and creativity is encouraged.
1. How to Make a Submission: In order to make a Campaign submission, please fill out the online entry form at www.beyounation.org/helpinghands. All entries must include the following: 1) your first and last name, complete address, email address, and phone number and 2) information about the type of help you could use. Submissions must be in either English or Spanish.
2. Selection: Periodically, eligible submissions will be judged by a qualified panel of judges selected by The Be You Nation in Be You Nation’s sole discretion based on how the requested help would impact the submitter’s life. Judges’ decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to this Campaign. Potential recipients will be notified by phone and email.
3. Verification of Potential Recipients: ALL POTENTIAL RECIPIENTS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY THE BE YOU NATION, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CAMPAIGN. A SUBMITTER IS NOT A RECIPIENT OF ANY HELP UNLESS AND UNTIL NOMINEE’S AND APPLICANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND BOTH HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
4. Submission Details: Submission must be written in English or Spanish and must be true. The Be You Nation reserves the right to verify the accuracy of submissions. Submissions must be the submitter’s original creation, may not have been published or previously won any other contest award, may not infringe third party rights (including, without limitation, trademark, copyright, and/or any other intellectual property rights), and must be suitable for publication and consistent with Sponsor’s brand image, as determined at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Submissions may not defame any individual or violate the right of publicity or privacy of any person, living or dead. Submissions not complying with this Agreement are subject to disqualification in The Be You Nation’s sole discretion.
5. Restrictions: Submitters must be legal residents of California who are 19 years of age or older. Void outside of the United States and where prohibited by law. All federal, state and local laws, regulations, and ordinances apply. Employees, officers, and directors of The Be You Nation or any of their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, representatives, consultants, contractors, legal counsel, advertising, public relations, promotional, fulfillment, and marketing agencies, web site providers, web masters, and members of their immediate families (spouses, parents, siblings and children, regardless of where they live) and those living in the same household are not eligible to participate. Participation constitutes the Participant’s, nominee’s and/or recipient’s full and unconditional agreement to this Agreement and to the decisions of BUDOU and Campaign judges, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Campaign. Being chosen is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. BUDOU reserves the right to verify submitters eligibility.
All submissions become the exclusive property of The Be You Nation and will not be returned. Normal Internet access, phone, and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. Bulk, automated and/or third party entries are prohibited and will not be considered. Multiple Participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any Participant to provide multiple and/or different identities, submissions, email addresses, logins, or any other methods will disqualify that Participant’s submissions at BUDOU’s discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any online submission, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the applicant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Submissions specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address may be disqualified and ineligible for consideration.
