By submitting a Photograph, you expressly discharge and release Authorized Persons of and from any and all claims and demands arising out of any such use or reproduction of the Authorized Material, including but not limited to claims for libel, invasion of privacy, or violation of the right of publicity. By submitting a Photograph you also certify that you are [18] years of age or older and that you have read and understand the foregoing and fully understand and agree to the contents thereof.
  • 6. Your Warranties Regarding Photographs Submitted Through the Program and Grant of Rights to Sponsor: By submitting Photographs for posting in the Program, you agree that you have read and are familiar with the Guidelines and Restrictions above. By submitting Photographs for the Program, you also: (1) represent and warrant that you have obtained all necessary licenses, consents, waivers, releases, authorizations and/or permissions to post or transmit the Photographs; (2) represent and warrant that the Photographs do not constitute confidential information and are free of any claims of proprietary or personal rights; (3) agree that you are solely responsible for all Photographs that you submit for posting; (4) agree that such Photographs are original with you and that you own all right, title and interest in the Photographs and any elements you include in the Photographs; and (5) grant to Sponsor and its affiliated entities an irrevocable, worldwide, nonexclusive, perpetual, fully sub-licensable, transferable, royalty-free right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, transmit, publicly perform, and publicly display such Photographs (in whole or part) on the Service and on any affiliate or successor website owned or operated by Sponsor or its affiliates, as well as on any social media sites associated with the Program, related to the Program, to promote the Service, the Program, the charities participating in the Program, and in communications about the Program, without compensation, notification, approval or any other obligation, to anyone, including yourself. Without limiting the foregoing, but for the avoidance of doubt, Sponsor acknowledges and agrees that you will retain the ownership of the Photographs and Sponsor and its affiliates will not use the Photographs in any product advertising. You will not have any claim against Sponsor with respect to any use or non-use of Photographs, and to the extent a claim is made against Sponsor or any of affiliated entities by any third party with respect to Photographs, you agree to indemnify and hold Sponsor and its affiliated entities harmless with respect to any such claims, including, without limitation, attorneys’ costs and expenses incurred in connection therewith.

    Submission of a Photograph grants Sponsor and its Agents the right (but not the obligation) to produce and promote a custom car design for Michael Waltrip based on a collection of submitted Photographs, and the right to publish, use, adapt, alter, edit, cut, crop or otherwise modify your Photograph without restriction, in any and all media, and without consideration to you.

    By submitting a Photograph, you understand and acknowledge that Sponsor is in the business of designing and manufacturing products and packaging and therefore does not agree to treat your photo as secret or confidential. Accordingly, you release the Agents (as defined above) from any and all claims, liability or causes of action arising from or related to your submitted Photograph, and you will not be entitled to any compensation from Sponsor with respect to a Photograph submission.

    If your Photograph is eligible to be included in the design of Michael Waltrip’s race car, the position of your Photograph on the car will be selected at random. If, however, there are last-minute changes to the car design, a display of your Photograph cannot be assured by Sponsor or its Agents. We cannot guarantee that your Photograph actually will appear on the car.

  • 7. Storage of Photographs: You agree that Sponsor may establish, in its sole discretion and without prior notice to you, a maximum amount of storage space for Photographs maintained, disseminated, or transmitted through the Service. You agree that Sponsor has no responsibility or liability for the deletion of or failure to store any Photographs maintained, disseminated, or transmitted through the Service.
  • 8. Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement: The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. Without limiting our rights under Section 5 (Term and Termination), it is our policy, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our copyright agent (designated below in this Section) with the following information: an electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Service; your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; a written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on such copyright owner’s behalf that fails to supply all of the information set forth above shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon us actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. Our copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:

    E-mail: [myafibstory@its.jnj.com ].

    We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice with our copyright agent. You should note that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

  • 9. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor and our agents, business partners, staff and affiliates harmless from any liability, loss, claim and expense, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, related to either your violation of these Terms and Conditions, your use of the Service and/or the unauthorized use of any personal information or data uploaded in connection with the Program.
  • 10. Governing Law/Miscellaneous. These Terms and Conditions shall be construed, interpreted and performed exclusively according to the laws of the State of New Jersey, United States of America, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You expressly agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or directly or indirectly relating to these Terms and Conditions or use of the Service shall be filed only in the Federal or state courts sitting in New Jersey. You hereby consent and submit to personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of any action related to the Service, your access or use thereof, or these Terms and Conditions, and to extra-territorial service of process. Should any part or provision of these Terms and Conditions be held unlawful, void, invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be deemed severable from these Terms and Conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms and Conditions constitute the only terms between us and you. These Terms and Conditions supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations, warranties and understandings with respect to the Service, the content, and/or services provided by or through the Service, and the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Service is in conflict or inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, the Terms and Conditions shall take precedence. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of its right to enforce such provision.

~2.7

million Americans have AFib

AFib (atrial fibrillation) is more common than you might think. It’s a type of irregular heartbeat, and it can cause blood to pool in the upper chambers of the heart. Some people with AFib will never experience symptoms.
Collapse

~1/3

of people with AFib will suffer a stroke

Expend

With AFib, the heart's upper chambers don't pump all their blood into the lower chambers. The blood that's left behind can pool and form a clot. If part of this clot breaks off, it can travel to the brain and cause a stroke.

Since AFib patients have an increased risk, stroke prevention measures are very important. Anticoagulants, known as blood thinners, help prevent clots from forming and are an effective way to reduce the risk of a stroke.
