Terms & Conditions for Cinema Date Applicants

We invite you to apply to be an “applicant” of the programme and podcast Cinema Date which is a Sky  UK (“Sky”) commissioned and owned production and is being produced by Listen Entertainment Ltd (“Listen”’/”we”). Although we can’t promise you will be selected for the podcast of Cinema Date (“the Podcast”) and/or any other materials Listen Entertainment is producing for Sky UK in respect of Cinema Date, we will read through all applications and give each candidate proper consideration.

To manage the applications and ensure we understand who is applying, here are a few simple rules which we will apply to the structure of the application which you will submit to become a single contestant on the Cinema Date show  and where selected to be a participant in Cinema Date, to any and all further contributions you then make to Cinema Date including and not limited to the Podcast (together “User Contribution”).

These terms and conditions (“Terms”) will become binding on you from the moment your application is submitted to Cinema Date If you do not agree with the Terms, please do not submit your application.

By submitting an application, you grant to Listen and Sky an unrestricted, unlimited and irrevocable right (but not the obligation) to host, use, reproduce, publish, broadcast, display, store, cache, publicly perform, translate, edit, adapt, redact, excerpt and distribute any audio and content you submit as well as any and all other content (audio and/or audio-visual) you subsequently provide in furtherance to your User Contribution in any and all media formats and channels whatsoever and/or howsoever arising and throughout the world, subject to the User Contribution being selected for publication in relation to  Cinema Date.

Any User Contributions not selected for publication and inclusion within the Podcast for Cinema Date and associated materials  will be subject to our deletion policy below.

If the applicant is selected,  the User Contribution may be spoken, quoted or played back and/or otherwise included as an audio clip on the Podcast and will also be listened to by our staff and other third parties involved with the Podcast. As such, any User Contribution uploaded by you should be considered non-confidential and, by posting an application, you agree that we may make use of your User Contribution in any manner connected with the Podcast as we see fit.

Subject to Listen’s acceptance of your application and in consideration of the opportunity to  provide the User Contribution and participate in Cinema Date, you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally assign to Listen and Sky with full title guarantee (and by way of present assignment of present and future rights) and free from all encumbrances, charges, options, licences or other rights of third parties, all copyright and any and all other intellectual property rights in the User Contribution throughout the world for the full period of such rights and all renewals, reversions and extensions of such period as may be provided under any applicable law throughout the world.

You give permission to Listen, Sky and its licensees and assigns to use the User Contribution in perpetuity and waive any and all moral rights arising in respect of the User Contribution and any and all adaptations and modifications thereto.

You agree that the User Contribution and/or any parts thereof may be broadcast and/or distributed to audiences by any and all media now known or yet to be devised in perpetuity throughout the world.

You understand and acknowledge that Cinema Date and the Podcast is being produced for entertainment and comic purposes and that it will include commentary from the host on User Contributions which may (at times) be provocative, cutting and may be fairly characterised as being ‘less than kind’.  If selected you are agreeing to the inclusion of your User Contribution on said basis.

You further understand and acknowledge that Listen does not conduct criminal background screenings of applicants and participants in this Podcast.  Listen cannot be held liable for false declarations by an applicant or for actions of any nature committed by any applicant who is then selected as a participant in Cinema Date.
