I understand that I am being considered as a contestant for the television series entitled "DRAGONS’ DEN" (the "Program") to be produced and broadcast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (the “Producer”). By signing this Consent and Release (the "Agreement"), I represent that I have read, understood and voluntarily agree to abide by its terms and conditions. Producer requires me to enter into this Agreement in order to be considered as a contestant on the Program, and I deem it to be in my best interest to enter into this Agreement. I acknowledge that by signing this Agreement, I will be giving up certain legal rights I may have against Producer, sponsors of the Program, and others. In consideration of being considered for and possibly selected to participate in the Program (notwithstanding whether or not I am selected as a contestant for the Program) and for other good and valuable consideration which I have received, I hereby represent and warrant that the following statements are true and correct and that I irrevocably agree to the terms and conditions contained herein: 1. I have answered the questions in the foregoing Participant Application and the Business Proposal OR Business Submission Form(s) relating to me and the Business Proposal truthfully, accurately, and completely and will immediately inform Producer if any information I have provided changes or is discovered by me to be false, inaccurate, or incomplete or becomes false or incomplete. If any of the information I have provided is found or determined by Producer in its sole discretion to be false, incomplete, inaccurate, or otherwise misleading, Producer reserves the right to immediately dismiss and disqualify me from the participant selection process or from the Program, if selected. 2. I understand that Producer has no obligation to interview me, to consider the Business Proposal, or to select me as a participant. If I am selected as a participant, Producer has no obligation to produce the Program or exhibit it, even if it is produced. All decisions of Producer concerning selection of participants and Business Proposals are final and not subject to challenge or appeal. Producer has no obligation to return any materials submitted by me as part of the participant selection process whether or not I am selected as a participant. 3. I understand that the principal purpose of the Program is to produce a television program in which the participants try to convince one or more third party investors (the “Dragons”) to invest a specific amount of money in the Business Proposal on terms and conditions to be negotiated with such Dragons. I acknowledge and confirm that Producer does not guarantee that any transaction will be concluded with the Dragons, that the Dragons are free to negotiate the terms and conditions of their investment in the Business Proposal, if any, at their discretion, and that Producer will in no event be held liable for the acts or omissions of the Dragons. 4. I understand that any agreement with the Dragons is not guaranteed by Producer and any such agreement may be subject to further negotiations between the participants and the Dragons. I understand that Producer does not represent the Dragons and that none of the Dragons represents Producer or is authorized to incur any obligation on behalf of Producer. 5. I hereby irrevocably consent to Producer's filming, taping, or recording of me, with or without my knowledge, for use in connection with the production and exploitation of the Program. I hereby grant to Producer, its assignees, licensees, agents, and affiliates, the right, in any and all media now known or hereafter devised throughout the universe in perpetuity, to use and reuse, without limitation, my appearance, name, likeness, voice, conversation, sounds, biographical information, and Business Proposal (collectively, my “Appearance”) during all phases of production of the Program (including without limitation, the interview and audition process) in any manner, whatsoever at Producer's sole discretion and as Producer sees fit. I understand and agree that any use or other exploitation of the Program episode(s) in which I appear and any exploitation of my Appearance as the same may be edited, cut, altered, rearranged, adapted, dubbed, or otherwise revised by Producer and any such use or other exploitation will not entitle me to receive any wages, benefits, fees, compensation, or other consideration whatsoever. 6. I agree to follow all of Producer's rules, directions, and instructions in all matters relating to the Program, such rules being subject to change at Producer's sole discretion. I will accept any and all decisions of Producer and/or Dragons (including without limitation, decisions concerning the audition process, interpretation of rules, eliminations and advancements in the competition, and all decisions relating to the Program) as final and acknowledge that the interests of the Program will override those of any participant. 7. I agree that my selection as a participant is within Producer's sole discretion and that Producer is not obligated to select me. If I am selected, I agree that Producer is not obligated to have me appear on, or to broadcast my appearance on, the Program and may disqualify me at any time in its sole discretion. In addition, if I am disqualified from the Program or the audition process, Producer may make any explanation or announcement (on-air or otherwise) that Producer may choose as to the reason why I was disqualified 8.

No promises or representations have been made to me to induce me to enter into this Agreement or to submit the Business Proposal. 21. I request that Producer examine and consider the Business Proposal in connection with my participation in the Program. I agree that Producer’s acceptance of my application for examination and consideration will not in any way guarantee the use of the Business Proposal for the Program. If the Business Proposal is used for the Program, it will not guarantee my participation in the Program nor a deal with the Dragons and will not obligate Producer to compensate me in any way. I have no expectations of receiving any compensation. 22. I acknowledge that the Business Proposal will be reviewed under guidelines set at Producer's discretion and that I will be notified if there is interest in the Business Proposal.

I acknowledge that Producer, the Dragons, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, or affiliated entities and their respective employees, agents, representatives, officers, and directors are not providing legal, business, product design, accounting, marketing, or any other professional services or advice to me. I am solely responsible for seeking my own legal counsel and other advisors to ensure that my rights and obligations are protected and discharged. 27. I acknowledge, agree, and understand that, separate and apart from the Program, Producer, the Dragons, and other participants are currently in the process of designing new products, developing new business plans and methods for conducting business, etc. I agree that I will not at any time seek legal remedies against any of the above mentioned entities for their development, acquisition, manufacture, or distribution of any product, service, or method similar or identical to that of the Business Proposal.

I acknowledge that there is a possibility that after my execution of this Consent and Release, I will discover facts or incur or suffer claims which were unknown or unsuspected at the time this Consent and Release was executed and which, if known by me at that time, may have materially affected my decision to execute this Consent and Release. I acknowledge and agree that by reason of this Consent and Release, and the release contained in the preceding paragraph, I am assuming any risk of such unknown facts and such unknown and unsuspected claims. 30. I agree to indemnify the Released Parties and to hold the Released Parties harmless from any and all liability, claim, action, damage, expense, and loss of any kind caused by or arising out of any statement, action, or failure to act by me during or in connection with my participation in the Program and the audition process therefore . 31. No breach of this Agreement will entitle me to terminate or rescind the rights granted herein.

I understand that my sole remedy will be the right to recover monetary damages with respect to any such breach. 32.

I also agree that I will not disclose any such information to any participant, individual, or entity, including without limitation, any members of the press. I further agree not to make disparaging remarks about the Program or any elements thereof, including without limitation, any third party Business Proposal. I acknowledge that any disclosure of such information will constitute a material breach of this Consent and Release and will cause Producer substantial and irreparable injury and will cause substantial damages, entitling Producer to, among other things, injunctive or other equitable relief without posting any bond, to prevent and/or cure any breach or threatened breach of this paragraph by me. 33. I affirm that neither I, nor anyone acting for me, gave or agreed to give anything of value to any member of the production staff or anyone associated in any manner with Producer. I understand that Producer's policy prohibits such payments and I further understand that it is a criminal offence, unless disclosed to Producer prior to broadcast, for any such arrangement or my acceptance or agreement to accept anything of value to promote any product, service, or venture on the air. I am also aware that it is a criminal offence to use any prepared material containing such a promotion where I know the writer received consideration for it and fail to disclose this to Producer prior to broadcast. I will notify Producer immediately if any person attempts to induce me to violate the foregoing or to do anything dishonest. 34. I agree that this Consent and Release will be governed by the laws of Ontario for contracts entered into and wholly performed therein and the venue for any disputes will be the provincial and federal courts located in District of Toronto, Ontario. 35.
