This Application may be cancelled in the event that, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, an insufficient number of eligible Applications are received.

SELECTION OF GRANT RECIPIENTS
At the close of the Application Period, a small board of Grubhub employees (“Selection Board”) will review each Application. The composition and operation of the Selection Board, including the number of individuals on the Selection Board, the selection of individuals who will serve on the Selection Board, and the process employed by the Selection Board to choose Recipients (as defined below), are within Sponsor’s sole discretion. All decisions will be made without reference to Applicants’ race, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation or identity, military status, or any other protected classification.
The Selection Board will review all qualified Applications and will select up to thirty (30) grant recipients (individually “Recipient” and collectively, “Recipients”). Decisions of the Selection Board are final and binding. In the event there are not enough eligible Applications, not all Grants (as defined below) will be awarded. If a potential Recipient is unable for whatever reason to accept his or her Grant, then Sponsor reserves the right to award the Grant to another Applicant. Application eligibility is subject to the verification of Sponsor and compliance with these Terms and Conditions, and in the event that a top-judged Application is disqualified, an alternate Recipient may be selected from among all eligible Applications. Recipients will be notified directly via email.
Up to thirty (30) Recipients will be awarded a Grant in the amount of $10,000 in grant money (the “Grant”). The Grant may be put toward your educational, business, or philanthropic goals as identified in your Application.
Sponsor reserves the right to award only as many Grants as there are Recipients. No transfer, substitution or cash equivalent for a Grant is allowed, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a Grant, in whole or in part, of equal or greater monetary value if a Grant cannot be awarded, in whole or in part, as described for any reason. All federal, state and local taxes will be the sole responsibility of the Recipients. Sponsor has not made and is not responsible in any manner for any warranties, representations, or guarantees, express or implied, in fact or law, relating to the Grants.
Except where prohibited, participation in the Program constitutes Recipient’s consent (and, where legal, Applicant agrees to confirm that grant in writing) to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of the Recipient’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions, biographical information, testimonials, statements, Grant information, and/or hometown and state for promotional, trade, and/or publicly purposes in any media now or hereinafter developed (including but not limited to the Internet), without notice and at no additional compensation or review, unless prohibited by United States law. By entering this Program and/or accepting a Grant, each Applicant and recipient/winner agrees to participate in any and all publicity and promotional activities (except where prohibited) in connection with this Program as reasonably designated by Sponsor.
BY PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM OR ACCEPTING A GRANT, ENTRANTS RELEASE AND AGREE TO HOLD HARMLESS THE SPONSOR AND ANY PROGRAM PARTNERS, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND CONTRACTORS (“RELEASED PARTIES”) FROM ANY AND ALL EXISTING OR FUTURE ACTUAL OR ALLEGED ACTIONS, CLAIMS AND/OR LIABILITIES OF WHATEVER NATURE INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INJURY, BODILY INJURY (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WRONGFUL DEATH AND DISABILITY), PROPERTY DAMAGE, AND LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY OTHER KIND, ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM ACCEPTANCE, POSSESSION, USE OF MISUSE OF THE GRANT, PARTICIPATION IN THIS, AND/OR PARTICIPATION IN ANY CONTEST OR GRANT RELATED ACTIVITIES.
The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Applicants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Program; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the application process or the Program; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Program or the processing of applications; (5) late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail or electronic mail. No more than the stated number of Grants will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of Grants as set forth in these Terms and Conditions to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of Grants by a random drawing from among all eligible Grant claims.
Applicants agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties from all claims, actions, losses, judgments, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of Applicants’ breach or alleged breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions, your violation of applicable law, your use of the Driver App and/or Materials (including without limitation all Diner Data), and/or all uses of your Application by Grubhub and/or any third party authorized by Grubhub.
Applicants agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions and the decisions of the Sponsor. Submission of Application grants Sponsor and its agents the right in perpetuity to reproduce, publish, use, edit, adapt and/or modify such Application information, in any way, in any and all media, without limitation and without compensation to Applicant. Sponsor is not responsible for human error, theft, destruction, or damage to Applications, or other factors beyond its reasonable control.
Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Program, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Program, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the application process or the operation of the Program or to be acting in violation of these Terms and Conditions or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. The use of automated or third party software or website to enter and/or apply for the Program is prohibited. Electronically or mechanically reproduced Applications shall be disqualified. In the event of a dispute, all Applications will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the email account associated with the Application. For these purposes, the e-mail account holder shall mean the natural person assigned to the e-mail address by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with such email account. Disqualified or ineligible Applicants shall forfeit any awarded Grants. Any attempt to submit an Application using multiple or different contact or personal information will disqualify such Application and the Application may be disqualified and any awarded Grants may be forfeited. All properly claimed Grants will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible Applications are received. Any fraud or attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Program may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to cooperate in the prosecution of any such individual(s) and to pursue all remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the Program in its entirety or any portion thereof if its integrity or proper operation is undermined, or because of any force majeure event and, in such case, to select the Recipient from the eligible Applications received prior to cancellation or suspension.
Except where prohibited, Applicant agrees: To waive all rights to trial in any action or proceeding instituted in connection with these Terms and Conditions, including without limitation the Program. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions and/or the Program shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in the State of New York, City of New York. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Terms and Conditions, or the rights and obligations of the Applicant and Sponsor in connection with the Program shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of New York.

CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT
Sponsor may change the Terms and Conditions from time to time.

WAIVER AND SEVERABILITY
Any waiver by Grubhub of any provision of Terms and Conditions must be in writing. If any portion of Terms and Conditions is found to be void, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then that portion shall be deemed to be superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that matches the intent of the original provision as closely as possible. The remainder of Terms and Conditions shall continue to be enforceable and valid according to the terms contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Recipient may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release (except where prohibited by law).
