You agree not to make any application to a court of law which could result in delaying the selection process in any place or at any time or the production, exhibition or exploitation of the Program and that this paragraph is fundamental to you being permitted by the Producer to participate in the selection process and the Program. The Producer and/or the Network and their related companies are multiple platform media companies in Australia with a presence across all forms of media including but not limited to broadcast television, online, social media podcasts and publishing.

29.) You acknowledge that in the event you breach the confidentiality or any other provisions or promises contained in these terms and conditions, your breach may cause serious financial and other loss to the Producer and the Network and they might take legal action against you to prevent you from breaching these promises or to recover from you any losses suffered in the sole discretion of Producer or Network. Such breach may also result in you being disqualified to participate as a contestant in the Program. You further acknowledge that a breach by you of any of the confidentiality provisions set out above could cause the Producer and the Network irreparable injury and damage that cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated by damages in an action at law, and, therefore, you hereby expressly agree that the Producer and the Network shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief to prevent and cure any breach or threatened breach of any of the confidentiality provisions of this application by you.

30.) For the avoidance of doubt, all references to the “Program” in these terms and conditions include promotional and publicity materials for the Program.

e) even if you are selected as a Contestant, the Producer has no obligation to conduct the Program contest (if any) or produce the Program and the Network has no obligation to exhibit it, even if produced

Under no circumstances will the Producer cover these or any additional costs
h) you agree that if your Application Form is incomplete or incomprehensible or incorrectly submitted and if applicable incorrectly addressed, lost in transit, containing insufficient postage, not received by the Producer at the relevant postal or email address or sent in after any specified closing date that it may not be considered
i) You accept that, due to the large number of applications received, your application may not be acknowledged or responded to and that the Producer may only respond to those of applicants who the Producer wishes to put forward to the next stage of the selection process. You understand that the Producer shall decide in its sole discretion which applications are suitable to be put forward to the next stage of the selection process, that such decisions shall be final and that there will be no right of challenge or appeal against any decisions taken by Producer on this matter.
