TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Sandclock Holdings, a Cayman Islands exempt company incorporated with limited liability (“Sponsor”) is pleased to sponsor this Sandclock Twitter Design Contest (the “Contest”). The goal of the contest is to create Twitter banner designs for the Sandclock community pages. The best designs, as selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion, will receive a prize. All prize-winning designs will be licensed to Sponsor and will have a chance to be distributed to the Sandclock ecosystem through a variety of channels.
If you choose to participate, whether you make a submission or not, you will be considered a “Participant” and bound by these Terms and Conditions. “You” refers to the Participant. If you work with teammates on the Contest, these Terms and Conditions apply to you individually, to each of your teammates individually and to the team as a whole.
IMPORTANT! Here are very important high level points about these Terms and Conditions:
- The Contest is void where prohibited by law.
- Sponsor has final say in its sole discretion as to all matters relating to the Contest, including, among other things, picking the winners, disqualifying entries or Participants and awarding prizes.
- There is no entry fee for the Contest but Participants bear all of their own costs.
- All submissions, whether or not they win or receive a prize, are licensed to Sponsor on a worldwide, perpetual basis with no royalties or other payments due from Sponsor to Participant. Sponsor may use any submission, in its sole discretion, pursuant to the license.
- If you do not want Sponsor to use your submission, do not participate.
- By being a Participant, you opt in to receiving promotional and other communications from Sponsor and its affiliates by various means.
The Contest begins at 12:00PM Eastern Time on December 27, 2021 and ends at 11:59PM Eastern Time on January 18, 2022 (the “Contest Period”). No submissions will be accepted before or after the Contest Period.
Here are the details. They are also important to read because they apply to the Contest, all Participants and all submissions.
Eligibility: The Contest is open to individuals (i) who are at least eighteen years old and (ii) are not located in a place that prohibits the Contest or their participation. Please do not participate if there is any reason, legal or otherwise, that you cannot. You may participate as part of a team, in which case each team member is a Participant and is responsible for the rest of the team’s actions and compliance with these Terms and Conditions.
Employees of Sponsor, Sandclock and their affiliates, as well as their immediate family members, are not eligible to participate, either individually or as part of a team, and may not win any prizes.
Registration: You do not need to register with Sponsor to get started on a design. When you submit your design, you will need to 1) submit a banner size (1500px by 500px) in PNG file, 2) follow Sandclock on Twitter, and 3) Tweet your design and tag the official Sandclock Twitter (@SandclockOrg). Sponsor will keep information about you confidential unless you are a winner. Information about winners may be disclosed at Sponsor’s option.
Creating a Design: Designers of all levels are welcome. Sponsor is looking for the best Sandclock-themed designs, but the design can be anything you choose. Use your imagination and have fun!
Contest prizes per winning designs: $500 of USDC or QUARTZ
Determining Winning Designs: There will be one round of judging. Sponsor will choose the winning designs based on originality, creativity, and fit with Sandclock’s brand identity. Sponsor will not publish the reasons for its choices of winners and prize recipients. All decisions will be made in Sponsor’s sole discretion and are final.
Prizes! All winning submissions will receive $500. If the winner(s) are located in a jurisdiction in which they would have been able to participate in the QUARTZ token sale pursuant to the Terms of Sale, they may elect to receive QUARTZ tokens in an amount equivalent to $500 on January 18, 2022. Otherwise, winning submissions will receive $500 in USDC. If you are part of a team, you will share the prize with your teammates and Sponsor’s only obligation is to pay the prize to one team member.
Sponsor will notify winners of prizes via email, so please include an email address with your submission. If you do not respond to the prize notification within 14 days, the prize may be revoked. Sponsor may require that you submit additional documentation, including proof of identity and residence, in order to collect your prize; failure to submit the documents on a timely basis may result in the prize being revoked.
Ownership of Designs and License to Sponsor: Each design must be an original work and must not violate anyone’s intellectual property rights. By submitting a design, you are confirming (representing and warranting) that it is your original work and does not violate anyone’s intellectual property rights. You are also confirming that Sponsor has the unrestricted right to use the design, in whole or in part. You hereby grant to Sponsor and its affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free license to the design.

You confirm that you will not make any claim to the contrary anywhere in the world.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, all ownership rights in the designs are yours, except as modified by the foregoing, and there are no restrictions on your use of the design, except to the extent of the foregoing.
Both you and Sponsor agree to execute any documents required to effectuate the rights and licenses, or confirm the other matters, in this Section. If you refuse to execute such documents or cannot be found, you are deemed to appoint the officers of Sponsor as your attorneys-in-fact for the limited purpose of executing such documents on your behalf.
Indemnity: You agree to release, indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor and their parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees, sponsors and agents, including advertising and promotion agencies, and assigns, and any other organizations related to the Contest, harmless, from any and all claims, injuries, damages, expenses or losses to person or property and/or liabilities of any nature that in any way arise from participation in the Contest or acceptance or use of a prize or parts thereof, including without limitation (i) any condition caused by events beyond Sponsor’s control that may cause the Contest to be disrupted or corrupted; (ii) any claim than a design infringes third-party intellectual property or proprietary rights; (iii) any disputes among team members, (iv) any injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of the prize, or acceptance, possession, or use of the prize, or from participation in the Contest; (v) any printing or typographical errors in any materials associated with the Contest; technical errors that may impair your ability to participate in the Contest; or (vi) errors in the administration of the Contest.
DISCLAIMERS: IN NO EVENT WILL SPONSOR OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS OR PROFITS) ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE CONTEST, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES FROM ANY CLAIM BASED UPON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT SPONSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
The Contest is subject to national, state/provincial, and local laws and regulations. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify or suspend the Contest for any reason and at any time without liability for doing so.
