During live performance and results shows of the Series, Producer may elect to feature profile pictures of individuals who voted for Series contestants via the SuperVote™ widget (available on americanidol.com, Facebook and the Series app) as part of an in-show visualization (“In-Show Visualization”).
To be considered for placement within an In-Show Visualization, you must be:
a) physically residing in a U.S. state (including Alaska, Hawaii and District of Columbia); Puerto Rico and/or U.S. Virgin Islands;
b) eighteen (18) years of age or older and the age of majority in your state of residence; and
c) the authorized account holder of the valid and authenticated Facebook account associated with the profile picture.
If you do not already have a Facebook account, but wish to vote via the SuperVote™ and have your profile picture considered for In-Show Visualization, you must create a Facebook account according to the instructions on the Facebook site.
If Facebook profile pictures are used to demonstrate voters of a certain Series contestant, Producer will only associate your Facebook profile picture with Series contestants for whom you cast a vote.
There is no guarantee that your profile picture will appear in show as part of an In-Show Visualization. Producer reserves the right to select which profile pictures will appear in show at its sole and absolute discretion.
Producers may elect to create images and video of any In-Show Visualization featuring your Facebook profile picture and post that content on the official American Idol Facebook timeline and/or your Facebook timeline. Producers may also contact you to provide you with a digital image and/or video of any In-Show Visualization featuring your Facebook profile picture, provided nothing herein shall obligate Producers to provide you with such materials.
If you wish to have your Facebook profile picture considered for the In-Show Visualizations, you must opt-in and grant permission to use your Facebook profile picture when you submit your votes. Your permission will be valid from the time you vote through and including the end of the broadcast period of the next week's performance show (e.g., when you vote on a Wednesday, your permission is valid for that Wednesday's show through the end of the broadcast of the next Wednesday's show). For complete details regarding how to vote, visit http://www.americanidol.com/vote.
A few legal rules:
1) If you are not the only person that is featured in your Facebook profile picture, you must obtain the consent of all individuals featured in your picture. Producer may elect not to feature Facebook profile pictures featuring multiple individuals at its sole discretion.
2) You must be the sole owner of all rights associated with your profile picture. This means you own the picture, and it does not include any third party materials, logos, images, artwork, or otherwise.
3) Producer will not feature any profile picture that is violent, pornographic, obscene, illegal, inappropriate, or racially or morally offensive.
Producer will review and moderate all profile pictures before featuring as part of the In-Show Visualization.
