Diversity and Inclusion Small Business Support Initiative (“Initiative”) is open to legal residents of Western New York (Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara Counties), age 18 years or older at the time of submission, who own or are employed by a minority-owned small business (holds a New York State Certificate of Authority with 50 or fewer full-time employees). Minority-owned small business cannot be a direct competitor to existing Sponsor clients (to be determined by the selection committee). Employees submitting to this Initiative must have prior approval of the owner of the business. Void where prohibited by law. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.
  2. HOW TO SUBMIT A FORM: Form must be completed in English and must be the sole original work of the applicant. See selection criteria below in these Terms and Conditions for guidelines. Limit of one submission per business per 12 months.
  3. USE OF SUBMISSIONS: Eligible submissions become property of the Sponsor. Submission grants the Sponsor an unlimited, worldwide, perpetual license and right to publish, use, edit, adapt, and modify the submission in any way, in commerce and in any and all media worldwide now known or hereinafter developed, without limitation and without notice or consideration of the applicant.
  4. SELECTION: Submissions will be selected as follows: A selection panel comprising Sponsor employees will review all submissions to determine eligibility before submitting their selections to the Executive Selection Committee for final selection. If your submission is not selected in the business quarter you completed it, we will retain your submission for one year and may select it at a later date. Submissions will be selected based on:
    (i.) Strong rationale for the Sponsor’s services (as detailed in the applicant’s submission form)
    (ii.) Compatibility of the minority-owned small business with the Sponsor’s capabilities and agency values
    (iii.) Ability of the Sponsor to deliver the proposed services within approximately 90 days of offer acceptance
  5. OFFER: One (1) minority-owned small business will be selected by the Sponsor per business calendar quarter to receive up to 100 hours (equivalent to $15,000) in agency services. Any out-of-pocket expenses and any additional fees not covered by the initial $15,000 of agency services are the responsibility of the selected business. Out-of-pocket expenses may include anything not covered by agency hours (e.g., printing, photography licensing, voiceover talent). Any out-of-pocket expenses or additional fees beyond the $15,000 in agency services will be presented and agreed upon by the selected business before billing. Offer is not transferable or redeemable for cash. No substitution for offer. If applicable, any taxes are the responsibility of the selected business. Offer must be accepted within 30 days after it is awarded. Any services provided therein must be completed by the Sponsor within an agreed-upon time.
  6. VALIDATION: A selected business will be determined each calendar quarter and notified by the Sponsor, and its decision is final on all aspects of the Initiative. The selected business will be notified by email or phone and required to complete an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability/Publicity Release, both of which must be returned via mail or email within fourteen (14) days of the date and time of notification or the offer will be forfeited.
  7. GENERAL TERMS: By participating in the Initiative, applicants agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and warrant and represent that none of the material submitted or posted infringes upon or otherwise violates the copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other intellectual or proprietary rights of any person or entity and that they have fully complied with the Terms and Conditions. Acceptance of the Sponsor’s services constitutes permission (except where prohibited) to use the selected business’s name, likeness, and submission form (in whole or in part) for publicity purposes in all forms of media including the worldwide Internet without additional compensation, notification, or permission.
  8. INTERNET: By participating in the Initiative, applicants agree that the Sponsor shall have the right to use all personal information provided to the Sponsor in accordance with the Privacy Policy posted on the Sponsor’s Website. Applicants, by participating in this Initiative, hereby waive and release, and agree to hold harmless the Sponsor, its subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, and all of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, and agents, from and against any and all rights, claims, and causes of action whatsoever that they may have, or which may arise, against any of them for any liability for any matter, cause of thing whatsoever, including but not limited to any injury, loss, or damage, whether direct, compensatory, incidental, or consequential, to person, including death and property, arising in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from their acceptance, possession, use or misuse of an awarded offer as part of the Initiative, or their participation in the Initiative, or their participation in any Initiative or offer-related activity, or any travel related to the Initiative, or any travel for any offer-related activity. The Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, damaged, incomplete, or illegible submissions or Internet technical, hardware, software, telephone, or transmission failures of any kind, which may limit a person’s ability to submit to the Initiative. The Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for any injury or damage to applicants’ or any other person’s computer related to or resulting from entering or downloading any materials in the Initiative. The Sponsor reserves the right to cancel or suspend the Initiative on the Internet should a computer virus, unauthorized intervention, or other cause corrupt the integrity or proper conduct of the promotion. The Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any applicant found to be disrupting the operation of the Initiative or its website. If the integrity of the Internet portion of the Initiative is compromised in any manner, the Sponsor reserves the right to modify the Initiative and those selected from valid submissions received that are unaffected by the problem. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any online applicant, applicant will be deemed the individual named on the online submission form. All issues and questions concerning these Terms and Conditions, or the rights and obligations of the applicant and the Sponsor in connection with the Initiative, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of New York State, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of New York State or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than New York State.
