You hereby grant to Doditty a non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully-paid, unlimited, worldwide, sublicensable, perpetual, and irrevocable license, in any and all manner and media regardless whether now known or hereinafter invented or devised (including all social media), to use, reproduce, license, sublicense, distribute, modify, adapt, reformat, publicly perform, publicly display, create derivative works of, and otherwise use for any purpose – and you hereby waive any and all moral rights or “droit moral” you may have – in any of the following: (i) any Ditty request; (ii) any submission in any form or medium that you make directly or indirectly to Doditty or any Doditty Artist through the Website, through any third-party website, through any social media, via e-mail, or by any other means; (iii) any song, video, lyrics, title, and/or orchestration; and (iv) any idea, suggestion, proposal, improvement, plan, or other communication.
The trademarks contained within the Website: (i) are registered trademarks, service marks or trade dress of their respective owners in the United States and/or other countries; (ii) may not be used in connection with any product or service in any manner that is likely to cause confusion; and (iii) may not be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of the owner(s).
Our Website provides various campaigns (“Campaigns”) for opportunities to donate to Doditty Artists’ chosen charities, chances to win unique prizes and rewards, and opportunities to purchase or bid on experiences and collectible items.
(a) Sweepstakes. When you participate in a sweepstakes Campaign, you can receive sweepstakes entries by making a charitable donation, by purchasing merchandise in some cases, or by using our free method of entering. Sweepstakes prizes may consist of collectibles signed by Doditty Artists, virtual “meet-and-greet” performances and/or visits by Doditty Artists (“Meet-and-Greets”), virtual reality experiences, and other exclusive prizes, experiences and collectibles (“Prizes”). You may also receive unique rewards for making charitable donations at specific entry tiers (“Rewards”).
No purchase, payment, donation or other financial contribution is necessary to enter or to win a Campaign. Void where prohibited by law. Your submitting entries, purchasing eligible merchandise, and/or making donations are subject to the terms and conditions of our Sweepstakes Official Rules, along with Additional Rules that apply to each individual Doditty Artist’s particular Campaign.
(b) Charitable Donations. No donation is required to enter a Sweepstakes, and a donation does not increase your chances of winning a Sweepstakes. However, you may receive sweepstakes entries for making a donation. See each specific Doditty Artist’s campaign page for more details. All donations are made to Doditty Foundation, a Donor Advised Fund (“DAF”) sponsoring organization that is tax-exempt as described by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Federal Tax ID: 85-4317373). Doditty Foundation distributes the Net Donations (defined below) to the Doditty Artist’s chosen charity as described herein.
(c) Sales of Merchandise. Some Doditty Artists will make available for sale merchandise, exclusive collectibles and/or incomparable experiences. Some purchases may be accompanied by entries into sweepstakes. Some portion of each purchase payment may be donated to an Doditty Artist’s chosen charity. See each specific Doditty Artist’s campaign page for more details.
(d) Auctions. Some Doditty Artists will make available for auction merchandise, exclusive collectibles and/or incomparable experiences. Winning bidders may in some case also receive entries into sweepstakes. Some portion of each auction payment may be donated to an Doditty Artist’s chosen charity. See each specific Doditty Artist’s campaign page for more details.
(e) Payments and Taxes. Doditty’s payment processing agent will charge you: (i) the donation amount; and/or (ii) the sale or auction purchase price, along with applicable taxes which will be paid by the processing agent to the appropriate taxing authorities. If an auction winning bidder pays more than the fair market value (“FMV”) of the auction item, which will usually be its retail value, the amount paid in excess of the FMV may be deductible by the winning bidder as a contribution. . All donations will be acknowledged by a donation receipt issued by Doditty Foundation. No donation is required to enter a Sweepstakes, and a donation does not increase your chances of winning a Sweepstakes, therefore, the donation is fully tax-deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law. If you receive a Reward for your donation, the amount of your donation that is deductible for U.S. federal and some state income tax purposes may be reduced by the value of goods or services received. Consult your donation receipt for the details about your donation. If you need a duplicate or replacement receipt for tax purposes, you can contact us at [insert Doditty Foundation email address]. Contact your tax advisor with any questions regarding the tax-deductibility of your donation.
(f) Donation Proceeds. Subject to the requirements described herein, Doditty Foundation distributes the Net Donations from each Sweepstakes within 30 days of the end of the quarter in which the Sweepstakes closed, so long as the Charity Partner meets the requirements for an eligible charity set forth in the Charity Partners Agreement between Doditty Foundation and each Charity Partner (the “Charity Eligibility”) at that time. “Net Donations” are the total donations received by Doditty Foundation from a Sweepstakes less Doditty Foundation’s direct costs and expenses for that Sweepstakes including, but not limited to, a professional fundraising fee paid to Doditty and third-party payment processing fees. Doditty Foundation makes no promise that a particular Sweepstakes will be successful and result in Net Donations to the Charity Partner. Doditty Foundation is committed to providing a DAF program of the highest caliber and that fully complies with all legal requirements related to DAFs and sponsoring organizations. While Doditty Foundation takes all reasonable steps to distribute donations to the Charity Partner designated for a particular Sweepstakes, including pre-qualifying the Charity Partner in advance of the Sweepstakes Entry Period, Doditty Foundation retains exclusive legal control over all donations. In the rare case that a Charity Partner may fail to meet the requirements for Charity Eligibility at the time of distribution (for example, it is not recognized by the IRS as a public charity or is not in good standing with federal and state regulators), Doditty Foundation reserves the right to reassign the funds to another organization of its choice. Doditty Foundation will notify you if funds must be reassigned to another charity. Because Doditty Foundation is the charitable organization of record for your donation, the tax-deductible status of your donation will not change if the funds must be reassigned to another charity. Please review Doditty Foundation’s Disbursement, Distribution and Grant Making Policies [insert link] for more information about Doditty Foundation’s DAF program. Please review Doditty Foundation’s State Charity Disclosures here [insert link].

Doditty and the Doditty Artist will use reasonable efforts to arrange a mutually convenient time and method of conducting the Meet-and-Greet with the recipient.
