Porch Nook, LLC (“PN”) welcomes your photographs, testimonials and original stories.  Each customer (“customer”) who submits a photograph (“photograph”) to PN with or without a testimonial or story (“story”) in connection with this request for photographs hereby agrees to these rules:

  1. You Give Us Your Consent to Use Your Name and Photograph, Testimonial and/or Story

Customer consents to the use of his/her name, likeness, photograph, quotation, comment, testimonial, and/or story (collectively, the “uses”) by PN for advertising, trade, and any other lawful purpose, together with the right to publish the same and/or copyright any materials that use them, and/or permit registration as a trademark or service mark with respect to any materials incorporating the uses.  Customer also grants PN a non-exclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, and publicly display his/her photograph, as well as customer’s first name, last initial, home state in promotions and other publications in any and all media, in any locale, in perpetuity, for any purpose whatsoever, without any compensation, provided it is understood that PN shall not utilize customer’s submission in any way to intentionally and maliciously subject customer to conspicuous ridicule or indignity.  Customer grants PN the right to edit his or her photograph, testimonial and/or story.

CUSTOMERS WILL NOT BE PAID FOR THEIR SUBMISSION(S) or for granting PN any of the above rights; provided, however, at least one (1) 15.5 fl. oz. jar of Porch Nook™ Chalky Finish Paint will be awarded to persons selected to demonstrate the application of this product.  For all other submissions, your consideration is your participation, publicity, and the satisfaction from taking part in the program.  Submissions become the property of PN and will not be acknowledged or returned.

  1. We Need To Know That You Can Send Us The Photograph, Testimonial, Story, and Your Name

Customer acknowledges that he or she owns all intellectual property rights that relate to his or her photograph, testimonial and/or story, whether it is by creating it or by getting a transfer from someone like the photographer.  Customer also acknowledges that the submitted story is original and accurate, that the photograph for use with customer’s first name, last initial, and home state is of customer, and that the consent of any other people mentioned in the story or shown in the photograph(s) have also been obtained.  You also have the right to use the phrases or captions suggested.   PN cannot accept previously published photographs and/or stories, or photographs and/or stories that violate or infringe on someone else’s copyrighted material.  PN reserves the right to ask customer for additional information.

  1. You Transfer To Us The Ownership of the Copyright In The Photograph, Testimonial and Story
