You will need to keep Producer reasonably apprised of any conflicts that arise between your schedule and the production or promotional schedule.
1. You may not be a participant on the Program if your participation would create impropriety or the appearance of impropriety. In making this determination, Hudson Daniel Group, Inc. (“Producer”) and approved networks may consider whether you or any of your immediate family members or anyone living in your household may be or have been within the past two (2) years employees, contractors, officers, directors, representatives or agents of any of the following: (a) Producer, Network, or any of the direct or indirect parents, subsidiaries, or affiliated or related entities of any of the foregoing; (b) any person or entity involved in the development, production, distribution or other exploitation of the Program or any variation thereof; (c) any known major sponsor of the Program or its advertising agency; (d) any host or any entity substantially owned or controlled by any host; or (e) any person or entity supplying services or prizes to the Program. In addition, Producer reserves the right to render ineligible any person who Producer determines, in its sole discretion, is sufficiently connected with the production, administration or distribution of the Program such that his or her participation in the Program could create the appearance of impropriety. Conversely, Producer and/or the Network has the sole discretion to allow any person to remain part of the Program who may be acquainted with a person or entity connected with the production and/or administration of the Program if, in Producer’s and/or the Network’s sole discretion, Producer and/or the Network determines that such person’s involvement in the Program does not and will not affect the integrity of the Program.
VII. The foregoing eligibility requirements may be amended, revised or changed at any time and in any fashion in Producer’s sole discretion.
