This agreement (the “Agreement”) is made between Charity Tunes Inc., a British Columbia corporation with registered office located at Suite 1800, 925 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada V6C 3L2 (“Charity Tunes”)
and ConAgra Foods Canada Inc. (“Sponsor”) a Canada corporation, 5935 Airport Rd, Suite 405, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L4V 1W5.
WHEREAS as a new initiative, Charity Tunes and Sponsor will enter into a promotional partnership, whereby Sponsor will offer Charity Tunes music downloads on Sponsor’s Pogo products consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement (the “Promotion”).
NOW THEREFORE in consideration of the mutual covenants made herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged by each Charity Tunes and Sponsor, the parties agree as follows
A consumer who purchases a specially Designated Sponsor Product (as defined below) will receive exactly one (1) unique pin code (a “Pin Code”) in-pack. Such a consumer will be entitled to visit a custom interactive landing page at the CharityTunes.com website to enter the unique code and consumer’s valid email address to receive
downloads up to a maximum of either three (3), five (5), or seven (7) free MP3 song downloads having a retail value of $1.29 per song or less. Charity Tunes shall make its music catalogue available to the purchasers in MP3 file format to the fullest extent that such format is available to Charity Tunes pursuant to any agreements in effect between Charity Tunes and its wholesalers on the date of this Agreement. Accordingly, Charity Tunes shall continue, in its best efforts to continuously
update its music catalogue with available MP3 files by February 27, 2010.
The custom interactive landing page shall be designed, operated and maintained at the expense of Sponsor, and shall be subject to the mutual approval by Charity Tunes and Sponsor, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. The landing page shall feature the Charity Tunes logo in a size and prominence substantially equal to that
2. DESIGNATED SPONSOR PRODUCTS:
POGO 8 pack, POGO 10 pack, POGO 20 pack and POGO 30 pack products sold at participating retail locations in Canada (individually and collectively the “Designated Sponsor Products”) are the only products for which a Pin Code will be distributed and each consumer who purchases a
Designated Sponsor Product will receive one and only one Pin Code while supplies last and subject to the limitations detailed herein. A Pin Code for three (3) songs shall be distributed exclusively with POGO 8 or 10 packs. A Pin Code for five (5) songs shall be distributed exclusively with POGO 20 packs. A Pin Code for seven (7) songs shall be distributed exclusively with POGO 30 packs. Designated Sponsor Products sold by Sponsor with the Promotion offer may not be sold at a higher list
price than the same (or substantially similar) product(s) that do not contain the Promotion offer. Pin Codes themselves may not be retailed in any way.
Pin codes will only be distributed in the Designated Sponsor Products during the Promotion Period (defined below). The total number of Pin Codes to be distributed as prizes in the Promotion shall not exceed: (i) 285,528 Pin Codes containing three (3) music downloads per Pin Code ; (ii) 120,510 Pin Codes containing five (5) music downloads per Pin
Code; and (iii) 27,475 Pin Codes containing seven (7) music downloads per Pin Code. No Designated Sponsor Product shall contain more than 1 Pin Code per pack.
The distribution limits stated above are the maximum number of Pin Codes that may be distributed in the Promotion. No 3-song, 5-song, or 7-song Pin Codes may be subdivided, duplicated or distributed in combination with one another.
Charity Tunes agrees to generate the unique Pin Codes for the Promotion. The parties therefore understand and acknowledge the critical need to maintain in absolute secrecy the Pin Codes generated for the Promotion such that they are only disclosed to the appropriate recipient via the authorized distribution method described herein. If
the Pin Codes are made available to the public by Sponsor or by any of its employees, officers, directors, consultants, agents, representatives or advisors, except in the manner provided for herein, all parties agree that Pin Code security will be deemed compromised, and Charity Tunes may terminate all subsequent Pin Code redemptions.
Sponsor agrees that it will not increase the list price to its customers of Designated Sponsor Products that form part of this promotion as compared to its otherwise identical products that do not form part of the promotion.
4. COMMUNICATION OF OFFER:
The offer shall be communicated to potential consumers only via in-store on-pack advertising, and retailer flyer advertising. Any communication of offer, including but not limited to Sponsor’s rules for the Promotion, must indicate that the offer is only available while supplies last.
A consumer who receives a Pin Code for a designated number of music downloads in accordance with paragraph 3 above will be directed to visit the custom interactive landing page in order to redeem his/her free music downloads. Consumer will have to enter the Pin Code in order to complete the transaction. Consumer will be required to enter
the Pin Code exactly as it appears in the email and follow the instructions on the web site to download the selected music download. In no case may any Pin Code be redeemed later than September 30, 2010. To assist as required with the redemption process, consumers shall have access to Charity Tunes customer support by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. GENERATION / PRINTING OF CODES:
Sponsor shall received 433,513 unique Pin Codes for this Promotion and Sponsor is responsible for maintaining a record of all Pin Codes distributed or withheld, such record being subject to the confidentiality terms set forth above.
Designated Sponsor Products with Pin Codes may be distributed from approximately February 28, 2010 to approximately May 1, 2010 (the “Promotion Period”). Eligible Pin Codes may be entered on the www.charitytunes.com website and corresponding music downloaded from February
28, 2010 to September 30, 2010. Pin Codes entered for redemption after 11:59:59 pm PT on September 30, 2010 may be rejected as ineligible. The contents of this section are to be reflected in the Sponsor’s rules for the Promotion.
8. SECURITY & VERIFICATION:
The Charity Tunes system used for redemption of downloads will ensure that (i) downloads are obtained under the Promotion only by way of redemption of eligible Pin Codes and only up to the maximum number of music downloads per Pin Code set out at paragraph 3 above, (ii) otherwise eligible Pin Codes are invalidated once they have been used to download
their respective per Pin Code maximum, and (iii) the total maximum download limits described herein are observed.
9. EXPLICIT CONTENT:
The Pin Codes that will be distributed to consumers of the Designated Sponsor Products under the Promotion will be set with parental controls and will not allow any user download content that has been designated by Charity Tunes music providers as containing explicit content.
Upon execution of this Agreement by both parties, Charity Tunes will invoice Sponsor for 433,513 unique codes consisting of a maximum of 285,528 Pin Codes containing three (3) music downloads per Pin Code ; (ii) 120,510 Pin Codes containing five (5) music downloads per Pin Code; and (iii) 27,475 Pin Codes containing seven (7) music downloads per
Pin Code, for a total cost of $115,602.12 CDN (plus applicable taxes) (collectively the “Fee”), which Fee is calculated at the rate of $0.07 CND (plus applicable taxes) per potential download. The Fee shall be payable to Charity Tunes in two equal installments of $57,801.06 (plus applicable taxes) due to Charity Tunes on
February 28, 2010 and March 31, 2010, respectively payable upon receipt of invoice.
