All Owners must have a valid email address. USPC is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, misdirected or technically corrupted Submissions, which will be disqualified, or for problems of any kind whether mechanical, human or electronic. Only fully completed Submissions are eligible for the Casting Call. Receipt of applications will not be acknowledged or returned, and proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by USPC.
Start/End Dates. Casting begins on 10 AM Pacific Time (“PT”) on March 15, 2023 and ends at approximately 10:00 AM PT on April 19, 2023 (Casting Period). Submissions must be received during the Casting Period.
Selection of Cast Members. Apes will be selected based on USPC’s sole, absolute, and unreviewable subjective discretion. Apes that are included in Submissions hereunder may, in USPC’s sole discretion, be included in the Bicycle Community “1227” Deck and other Bicycle BAYC products (“Products”) and any related advertising (collectively, the “Advertising”). All decisions with respects to casting are in the sole and absolute discretion of USPC, and nothing shall obligate USPC or its advertising and promotion agencies, or any of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, representatives, agents, successors, assigns, employees, officers, and directors (collectively, “the USPC Parties” ) to include any Ape in Products or make use of any of the rights set forth herein. If an Owner’s Ape is selected for use in Products, the Owner understands and agrees that they will be considered independent contractors and that they shall not represent themselves to be an agent, employee, or partner of USPC.
IF YOUR APE IS SELECTED TO BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THE PROGRAM, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN USPC’S LICENSE AGREEMENT AND ALL OTHER DOCUMENTS IN COMPANY’S DISCRETION (COLLECTIVELY, “LICENSE AGREEMENT”). The License Agreement will be minted into one or more NFTs that are irrevocably associated with your Ape and will transfer to any future purchases of your Ape, thereby putting such purchasers on notice that your Ape has been licensed to USPC for use in Products. You agree to waive any claims that you have against the Released Parties (defined below) as a result of such association, including without limitation, claims that such association has negatively impacted the commercial or market value of your Ape.
Owners must continue to own the applicable Ape at all times before and during the Casting Call and may be asked to verify their ownership of the applicable Ape through means the same as or similar to those outlined in Section 2. If an Owner sells or otherwise disposes of their Ape after the Ape’s Submission and prior to the completion of the Casting Call (and if selected for use in Products, prior to execution of License Agreement), that Ape will be disqualified, and will not be used in Products or Advertising.
Notification. Owners will be notified of their Apes’ selection by email and will be required to sign and return the License Agreement within seven (7) days of receipt of the email. USPC may rescind and such selection or notification at any time, with or without cause.
Additional Terms. USPC reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify Owners who do not comply with these Terms or attempt to interfere with this Casting Call in any way. USPC reserves the right to change the terms of the application process at any time by posting updated Terms and Conditions on the Casting Call site. USPC will attempt to notify Owners of material changes to the Program via the email address provided with their Submissions or by posting a prominent notice on the Casting Call Site. In any case, Owners should periodically check these Terms for all other changes to the Casting Call, and Owners are encouraged to review the Terms whenever they are updated. If the Owner makes a Submission or maintains its Submission to the Casting Call after USPC posts updated Terms, it means Owner accepts and agrees to the changes. USPC also reserves the right not to select Apes and to not produce Products, Advertising or other materials.

Owners acknowledge and agree that Products and Advertising shall be deemed the sole and exclusive property of USPC, notwithstanding the inclusion of Submissions and/or Apes pursuant to the License Agreement (but subject at all times to Owners rights in and to the Apes).
License Fee. The Owner of any Ape that is selected as part of the Casting Call will receive one unique Custom Bicycle NFT Joker (for each selected Ape) from USPC featuring the Owner’s very own Bored Ape, that contains an image of the Ape, and a promotional code for use on that will allow Owners to purchase one Bicycle Community “1227” deck free of charge (shipping and tax included). The Custom Bicycle NFT Joker and promotional code will be delivered at a date and time determined by USPC in its sole discretion after the License Agreement is executed. The promotional code will be emailed to the email address provided by Owner on the submission form.
