Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you understand that the Use may include featuring the Art on the Play’s official Instagram account and/or creating a digital sticker based on the Art ("Digital Sticker") that is made available on the Play’s mobile application (the "App"). You understand that if a Digital Sticker is created and made available on the App, users of the App may save, print and/or share the Digital Sticker via text message, email or other third-party service or application, and you acknowledge that the Company is not responsible or liable in any way for the actions that any such users (or any recipient of the Digital Sticker) may take with respect to the Digital Sticker.

The Company agrees that it will not sell the Digital Sticker or any other products containing the Art. You understand that the Company has no obligation to exercise any rights provided by you pursuant to this License.

As full and complete consideration for the rights granted hereunder, the Company shall credit you using the name you provided on the fan art entry submission form in the event that the Company publishes, publicly displays or exhibits the Art (as it may be altered or edited by the Company) (the "Acknowledgement"), and all aspects of the Acknowledgement, including without limitation the number of acknowledgments and the size, prominence and placement thereof, shall be at the sole discretion of the Company. In particular, if the Company includes the Digital Sticker on the App, the Company shall credit you on the App for such Digital Sticker during the period in which the Digital Sticker is available on the App.

You hereby acknowledge that the Art is a derivative work based on intellectual property owned exclusively by the Company. You hereby waive any right to inspect or approve any Use of the Materials by the Company as permitted herein, and any right to receive any credit (except the Acknowledgment as expressly provided herein), royalties, compensation or other benefit (monetary or otherwise) arising out of or related to such Use.  You acknowledge that you will have no personal interest or property right in the Materials as used by the Company at any time (including, without limitation, the Digital Sticker), and that the Company will retain all applicable interest and legal rights in the Materials as used by the Company (including, without limitation, the Digital Sticker).  You hereby expressly forever release and discharge the Company from and against all claims which you may have arising out of the Use of the Materials, including, without limitation, claims based on copyright, invasion of privacy, defamation or right of publicity.
