4. Rights to Entries.

a. Rights Granted to Avalara.  Except where prohibited by law, by entering the Giveaway, you grant permission to Avalara to use your name for any purpose related to the Giveaway, including without limitation for promotional purposes, without further permission or compensation. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree that Avalara may post your name on Avalara’s website and social media and may use your name in its recruiting or marketing materials. You will not be entitled to compensation for any use by Avalara, or its agents, licensees or assignees, of your name in accordance with the rights granted to Avalara under this paragraph. Avalara will have no obligation to publish or use (or continue to publish or use) your name, even if you win a prize. 

5. General Release. By entering the Giveaway, you release Avalara and its directors, officers, employees, and affiliates  from any liability whatsoever, and waive any and all causes of action, related to any claims, costs, injuries, losses, or damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the Giveaway (including, without limitation, claims, costs, injuries, losses, and damages related to rights of publicity or privacy, defamation or portrayal in a false light, whether intentional or unintentional), whether under a theory of contract, tort (including negligence), warranty, or other theory.

6. Limitation of Liability. Avalara and its directors, officers, employees, and affiliates shall not be responsible or liable for any damages or losses of any kind, including direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages arising from your participation in the Giveaway, or use of or inability to use any prize, even if advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitations or exclusions of liability for incidental or consequential damages so the above may not apply to you.

7. Governing Law.  The Giveaway and these Terms, including any disputes hereunder, will be governed, construed, and interpreted under the laws of the state of Washington, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles. The state or federal courts in King County, Washington, will have exclusive jurisdiction over any suit. Depending on the country in which you are employed or engaged as a contractor, additional laws and regulations may apply.  

8. Miscellaneous.  You agree to be bound by these Terms and by the decisions of Avalara, which are final and binding in all respects. Avalara reserves the right to change these Terms at any time, in its sole discretion, and to suspend or cancel the Giveaway or limit eligibility for participation in the Giveaway should viruses, bugs, unauthorized human intervention or other causes beyond Avalara’s control affect the administration, security or proper play of the Giveaway, or Avalara otherwise becomes (as determined in its sole discretion) incapable of running the Giveaway as planned.  Avalara’s failure to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of that provision, nor will it waive or invalidate any other provision of these Terms. If you violate these Terms, violate any law, rule or regulation in connection with participation in the Giveaway, tamper with the operation of the Giveaway or engage in any conduct that is detrimental or unfair to Avalara, the Giveaway or any other participant (in each case as determined in Avalara’s sole discretion), you are subject to disqualification from entry into the Giveaway.  Any provision of these Terms deemed unenforceable will be enforced to the extent permissible, and the remainder of these Terms will remain in effect.
