Sponsorship Terms and Conditions
Sponsorship Application: Application for Sponsorship for CCN must be made on the form provided by CCN, and executed by an individual who has the authority to act for the sponsoring company. CCN reserves the right to decline any application for Sponsorship for any reason. Such application shall become a binding agreement (Agreement) once accepted by CCN. With such acceptance, CCN grants Sponsor the right to be an Official Sponsor of CCN and its events. Sponsor expressly agrees to be bound by all the terms and conditions herein. Sponsor expressly agrees that Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes any prior agreement, written or oral. Agreement does not constitute a partnership or joint venture or principal-agent relationship between the parties. Agreement shall be interpreted and construed under the laws of the United States and the State of Maryland.
Payment: Once Sponsor’s Agreement is accepted, if payment has not been made by credit card, or check has not been received with the application, Sponsor will be invoiced electronically, and must pay the Sponsorship fee within 15 business days of receipt of such invoice. Sponsor understands that its assignment of such Sponsorship shall not be confirmed and final until such full payment has been received by CCN, and that until such assignment, such Sponsorship shall be subject to prior sale.
Copyright-Sponsor Right to Use Marks: Sponsor acknowledges that CCN owns all rights and title to the CCN events and CCN business. Sponsor shall have the right to use the name of the CCN service in connection with Sponsor’s promotion of its sponsorship of the events, provided that CCN shall have the right to approve such uses in advance. Such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. Sponsor further agrees that such uses shall not be to endorse any product or service of Sponsor.
Licensing: Sponsor warrants that it is the sole owner of all copyrighted materials appearing in its Sponsorship collateral, or that it has obtained appropriate licenses to display such materials.

Assignment of Rights: Sponsor agrees that it will not grant any of its Sponsorship rights hereunder to any third party, nor allow any tie-in partner to refer to Sponsor’s official status hereunder without CCN’s prior written approval.
Sponsor Representations: CCN shall not endorse, support or be liable for any claims made by Sponsor as to the qualities or merits of its products or services, and no advertising mention shall indicate, claim, or suggest such endorsement or support.
