On behalf of myself and my company/organization, which is designated below ("Organization"), and in consideration of my participation in either Oracle OpenWorld 2015 and/or JavaOne 2015, scheduled to take place October 24 to 29, 2015 in San Francisco (the “Event”), I grant Oracle (and its designated contractors), and its subsidiaries and affiliates under common control ("Oracle") the following permissions in connection with the Event:
1. Permission to make sound and visual recordings of any and all presentation(s) I give in relation to the Event (“Presentation”) on film, tape, disk, and/or other forms of media, whether in analog or digital format (the “Recordings”), including permission to incorporate into the Recordings, in whole or in part, any presentation materials that I use in connection with my Presentation, including without limitation any written speeches, visual aids, or other visual or written materials used, performed, displayed and/or provided by me in connection with the Presentation (the “Presentation Materials.”)
2. Permission to use and distribute my name, voice, biographic material, likeness, and portrait (hereinafter collectively referred to as my “Likeness”) in connection with my Presentation, for the purpose of publicizing or promoting my Presentation(s) at and participation in the Event, including permission to incorporate my Likeness into the Recordings, in whole or in part.
3. Permission to use my Organization’s name and logo in connection with my Presentation and incorporate them into the Recordings, for the sole purpose of identifying my Organization, my affiliation with my Organization, and my presentation at and participation in the Event.
