Sponsor reserves the right to post sample App Integrations it has created in connection with the Contest and/or highlight Contest Entries received during the Contest Entry Period.

By submitting a Contest Entry, the Contest Entrant understands and grants to the Sponsor an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive worldwide license to use his/her Contest Entry, App Integration, name, hometown and likeness (of the individual submitting same for Contest Entrant) on the Sponsor’s various websites and social media sites and in advertising and/or promotional activities worldwide without compensation, permission or notification.

JUDGING & FINALIST DETERMINATION: The Judging & Finalist Determination Period will begin on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and be completed on/or about Monday, September 14, 2020. All eligible Entries received during the Contest Entry Period will be judged by the Sponsor, who shall use the criteria set forth below:
- Functionality and Impact (50%)
- Innovation (25%)
- User Experience (25%)
The five (5) Contest Entries that receive the highest total score based on the judging criteria will each be deemed a potential finalist (each, a “Finalist”).
In the unlikely event of a tie, the tied Contest Entry with the highest score in Criterion A, Functionality and Impact, will be deemed the potential Finalist. If additional tie breakers are needed, the tie-breaking mechanism above will be used; however, instead of the highest score in Criterion A determining the potential finalists from among the tied entries, the highest scores in each of Criteria B through C, in sequence (to the extent needed) will determine the potential Finalists. In the event additional tiebreakers are needed, all tied Contest Entries will be judged by a separate panel of judges using the judging criteria above.
FINALIST CONFIRMATION PERIOD & FINALIST ACCEPTANCE: The president, CEO, owner or an authorized representative of the company/business that is a Finalist will be contacted by the Administrator by email or phone on/around Tuesday, September 15, 2020. The president/CEO/owner/authorized representative of Finalist, on behalf of the Finalist company/business as well as him/herself individually (to the extent applicable), will be required to sign and return, within five (5) days of notification, an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Waiver, a W-9 Form with the business tax ID number, if applicable, and where allowable, a Publicity Release, or a Declaration and Release if potential winner is a Canadian company/business (collectively, “the Releases”) in order for company/business to be declared a verified Finalist, receive a Finalist Prize and have the opportunity to perhaps win the Grand Prize. Prize(s) will be awarded to president/CEO/owner/authorized representative on behalf of the Finalist company/business, NOT individually.
In the unlikely event that a president/CEO/owner/authorized representative of a potential Finalist is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state/province of primary residence, the parent or legal guardian of such president/CEO/owner/authorized representative will be required to execute and return the Releases on minor’s behalf.
Sponsor will invite the five (5) Finalists to present their App Integration (each, a “Presenting Finalist”) at the Clio Cloud Conference, to be held in or around October of 2020 at a date and time to be determined by Sponsor (the “Conference”). Sponsor may invite fewer than five (5) Presenting Finalists without liability to the Sponsor or its designees of any kind. Finalist company/business may select its president, CEO, owner or any other authorized representative to be its Presenting Finalist provided that such individual was named on the Finalist’s contest entry form. Presenting Finalist must attend the Conference and agree to present as a condition of Finalist company/business receiving a Finalist Prize and remaining eligible to win the Grand Prize. If Presenting Finalist is not the same individual who completed Releases on behalf of Finalist company/business (as discussed above), Presenting Finalist will also be required to sign and return a Liability Waiver and where allowable a Publicity Release for him/herself personally within the aforementioned five (5) day period.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER DETERMINATION: During the Conference, each Presenting Finalist will have a maximum of thirty (30) minutes to present his/her App Integration. Such presentation will be governed by the Grand Prize Round Rules and Regulations, which are made a part of these Official Rules and incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between these Official Rules and the Grand Prize Round Rules and Regulations, the Grand Prize Round Rules and Regulations shall prevail, govern and control with respect to the conduct of the Grand Prize Round but in all other regards these Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control. Presentation will be judged based on the following criteria:
- Functionality and Impact (50%)
- Innovation (25%)
- User Experience (25%)
In the unlikely event of a tie, the tied Finalist with the highest score in Criterion A, Functionality and Impact, will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner. If additional tie breakers are needed, the tie-breaking mechanism above will be used; however, instead of the highest score in Criterion A determining the potential Grand Prize winner from among the tied Finalists, the highest scores in each of Criteria B through C, in sequence (to the extent needed) will determine the potential Grand Prize winner. In the event additional tiebreakers are needed, all tied Finalists will be judged by Sponsor using the judging criteria above.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: After all Presenting Finalists in attendance at the Conference have completed his/her App Integration presentation, Sponsor will announce the potential Grand Prize winner.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER NOTIFICATION & PRIZE ACCEPTANCE REQUIREMENTS: The president, CEO, owner or an authorized representative of the company/business that is the potential Grand Prize winner will also be notified by the Contest Administrator within seven (7) after the conclusion of the Conference via email and/or phone, and will be required to sign and return, within three (3) days of notification, the Grand Prize Releases. Noncompliance will result in disqualification and the Finalist who received the next highest judging score in the Grand Prize Round will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner and will be required to sign and return the Grand Prize Releases as outlined above. The Grand Prize will be awarded within approximately 45 days after verification.
