The Holder agrees, on behalf of the Holder and Holder's Related Persons (defined below), that the Holder and each such other individual will not attend the Event if any one or more of the following is true on the day of such Event:

Within the prior 10 days, any such individual has returned a positive or inconclusive test result for COVID-19;

  • Within the prior 5 days, any such individual was exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 while such individual was not (i) up-to-date on vaccination against COVID-19, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC"), or (ii) recently recovered from a confirmed prior infection of COVID-19 within the past 90 days; or
  • Any such individual is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (e.g., sore throat, cough, nasal congestion) and has not returned a negative test result from an FDA-authorized test collected after symptom onset and within 1 day prior to the Event.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the individual may attend the Event if such individual has received clearance by a healthcare provider or public health authority, or pursuant to applicable public health guidelines, not to quarantine or isolate.

To ensure that all Event patrons agree to, and comply with, all Safety Requirements and all other NBA, Team and Arena rules, this ticket may not be resold or offered for resale on any platform other than a platform expressly authorized by the Team or the NBA. Without limiting the foregoing, any transfer of this ticket to any person who fails to satisfy any Safety Requirement (including pre-Event requirements established by the Team or Arena) may be voided by the Team and this ticket cancelled.
The Holder agrees not to create, transmit, distribute, misappropriate or sell (or aid in creating, transmitting, distributing, misappropriating or selling), in any media now or hereafter existing, any description, account (whether text, data or visual, and including (without limitation) play-byplay data), picture, photograph, image, video, audio, livestream or other form of exploitation or reproduction of the Event (collectively, "Event Works"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Holder agrees that by causing this ticket to be scanned upon entry, the Holder shall be deemed to have signed the ticket and granted to the Team and NBA an exclusive worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, sub-licensable, royalty-free license to all rights associated with any Event Works. This ticket may not be used for any form of commercial or trade purposes, including, but not limited to, advertising, promotions, contests, sweepstakes, giveaways, gambling or gaming activities, without the express written consent of the Team and NBA.

On behalf of the Holder and the Holder's Related Persons (defined below), the Holder further hereby releases (and covenants not to sue) each of the Released Parties (defined below) with respect to any and all claims that the Holder or any of the Holder's Related Persons may have (or hereafter accrue) against any of the Released Parties and that relate in any way to (i) exposure to COVID-19; (ii) entry into, or presence within or around, the Arena or the Event (including all risks related thereto) or compliance with any protocols or Safety Requirements applicable to the Event; or (iii) any interaction between the Holder and the Holder's Related Persons, on the one hand, and any personnel of any of the Released Parties present at the Event, on the other hand, in each case whether caused by any action, inaction or negligence of any Released Party or otherwise.

As used herein:

  • "Related Persons" means the Holder's heirs, assigns, executors, administrators, next of kin, anyone attending the Event with the Holder or for whom Holder has obtained an Event ticket (which persons the Holder represents have authorized the Holder to act on their behalf for purposes of these terms), and other persons acting or purporting to act on the Holder's or their behalf.
  • "Released Parties" means: (i) the National Basketball Association and its member teams (including the Team), and each of their respective direct and indirect owners, affiliates, players and coaches, administrators, designees, licensees, and other personnel; (ii) the direct and indirect owners, lessees,  and sublessees of the Arena; (iii) all third parties performing services at the Arena; (iv) any parents, subsidiaries, affiliated and related companies of each of the entities described in clauses (i)-(iii); and (v) the officers, directors, owners, members, managers, partners, employers, employees, agents, contractors and sub-contractors (and employees of such contractors and sub-contractors), insurers, representatives, other personnel, successors and/or assigns of each of the foregoing entities and persons described in clauses (i) – (iv), whether past, present or future and whether in their institutional or personal capacities.

The Holder grants permission to the NBA and Team (and their respective designees and agents) to utilize the Holder's image, likeness, actions and statements in any live or recorded audio, video, film, or photographic display or other transmission, exhibition, publication or reproduction made of, or at, the Event in any medium, whether now known or hereafter created, or context for any purpose, including commercial or promotional purposes, without further authorization or compensation. In addition, the Holder grants to the NBA and Team permission to collect, use, share and store certain Holder facial and other biometric information as permitted by law, including for security purposes.

If any provision or part of these terms or the Supplemental Terms is held to be illegal, unenforceable or ineffective, such provision or part thereof shall be deemed modified to the least extent necessary to render such provision legal, enforceable and effective, or, if no such modification is possible, such provision or part thereof shall be deemed severable, such that all other provisions in and referenced in these terms and the Supplemental Terms remain valid and binding.
