IX. POLICY CHANGES IN RESPONSE TO PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERNS: Participant and the Competition acknowledge and agree that the threat of Infectious Disease and its many known and unknown ramifications pose unique challenges to the execution of the Engagement(s) and Performance(s), and the novel nature of such Infectious Disease makes it difficult for the parties to forecast with any particularity the health and safety measures or other accommodations that may be legally required, economically feasible, socially responsible, or otherwise reasonable and appropriate at the time of a given Engagement or Performance. The Competition and the Participant further acknowledge and agree that the health, safety, and wellbeing of all guests and participants are of paramount importance, such that it may be necessary or desirable to institute remedial or preventative measures or other accommodations not explicitly described in these Terms and Conditions, but that may nevertheless alter the rights or obligations of the Participant and the Competition. Considering the foregoing, Participant acknowledges and agrees that the Competition, in its sole discretion and without any liability to Participant, may terminate the performance or the Recital in its entirety or institute additional requirements, restrictions, or accommodations (“Requirements”) applicable to the Engagement(s) and Performance(s), including, without limitation, Requirements affecting Performance duration or size, ticketing policies, or audience capacity, and that such Requirements shall supersede the written provisions of these Terms and Conditions or the Competitions rules and correspondence exchange to the extent that a conflict arises between the written provisions of the Competition policies and rules and the Requirements provided pursuant to this Section. If the Recital or the Participant’s Performance are terminated in pursuant to this Section, the Competition will re-schedule the Performance to a later date.
