The applicant and his/her employer acknowledge that any accreditation granted to the applicant is personal to the applicant and, the rights in connection with accreditation may not be loaned, transferred or in any other way licensed or assigned to another person or entity for any purpose whatsoever without the prior written consent of NZC. The applicant acknowledges and agrees that it is a matter entirely at the discretion of NZC whether such consent shall be granted.
1.4 Grant of Request
Subject to the procedures set forth below, NZC may grant or reject the request for accreditation in its absolute discretion and subject to reasonable prior notice and consultation may impose such further terms and conditions in its absolute discretion. Once granted, subject to clause 3 below, NZC may suspend or revoke the accreditation at any time at its absolute discretion.

The applicant agrees that any information he/she obtains by virtue of his/her accreditation will only be used for bona fide news reporting and will not be used by him/her for betting on the outcome of a Match or any element of a Match or to induce any other person to do the same.
1.6 No Interest in Venue
Nothing in this agreement shall provide the applicant with any right, licence or occupation right in respect of the Venues outside of the terms of this agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt, and subject at all times to not breaching or negligently prejudicing NZC's or any Player's intellectual property rights, all intellectual property in material created by the applicant is owned by the applicant or applicant's employer, as applicable. Further, nothing in these Accreditation Terms and Conditions is intended to be, or shall be interpreted as restricting or undermining the editorial independence or freedom to report including expressions of fair and critical comment.
The applicant agrees not to record and/or transmit any Audio from within the Venue on match days (other than solely recording and/or transmitting an official NZC press conference or other officially staged event) without the express prior written consent of NZC.
The applicant agrees not to record and/or transmit any Video from within the Venue on match days other than solely recording and/or transmitting an official NZC press conference on match days or other officially staged event without the express prior written consent of NZC. The transmission of recordings of live action is expressly prohibited. This clause is not intended to limit the applicant's rights under the Copyright Act.
Notwithstanding any other action that NZC may be entitled to take (including for the avoidance of doubt issuing a formal warning or suspending this accreditation), NZC shall be entitled to terminate this accreditation immediately and immediately remove the applicant from any Venue if:
Where NZC terminates this agreement pursuant to clause 3.1 then the applicant's accreditation and right to access to the Venues shall immediately cease but the applicant's and/or the applicant's employer's liability for any payments or damages due under this agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
For the avoidance of doubt, NZC shall only terminate this agreement in circumstances which in NZC's sole discretion amount to a serious breach of these Terms and where NZC considers (in NZC's sole discretion) that a warning or suspension would not be appropriate.
Where the applicant and/or his/her employer disagrees with any suspension or termination of the applicant's accreditation at any time, then NZC and the applicant and/or his/her employer shall use their best endeavours to resolve the matter by negotiation.
