Oncall Air Customer First Award Program Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. BY PARTICIPATING IN THE ONCALL AIR CUSTOMER FIRST AWARD PROGRAM, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM.
The OnCall Air Customer First Award Program (“Award Program”) is open only to nominators who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and/or the District of Columbia, who are at least 18 years of age (19 in AL and NE, 21 in MS) or older (each, a “Nominator”). Nominators may nominate a business that is operating within the fifty (50) United States and/or the District of Columbia and that is actively using the OnCall Air platform as of the time of nomination (each, a “Candidate”). Eligible businesses must remain active OnCall Air platforms users throughout the review process in order to remain eligible as a Candidate, and to potentially be selected as an Honoree (defined below).
Watsco Ventures LLC, 2665 South Bayshore Drive, Suite 901, Coconut Grove, FL 33133 (“Sponsor”).
The Award Program begins on August 1, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and shall continue on an ongoing basis unless and until Sponsor determines that no future Awards will be provided, at which time any current nominations will be reviewed and considered, and future nominations will no longer be accepted (the “Awards Period”). Upon nomination, Candidates will be reviewed via the review process explained below within four (4) weeks of their nomination. Candidates selected to receive the Award will be notified within four (4) weeks of selection. Honorees shall be notified of their selection via email.
Candidates may receive the OnCall Air Customer First Award (the “Award”) once per calendar year. Limit one (1) Award per Candidate per year. There is no minimum or maximum number of awards that will be distributed by Sponsor in any given year; rather, the number of awards presented each year will be based on timely nominations and the Candidate review and selection process explained below. In the event that no nominations are received, or that none of the Candidates meet the minimum criteria to receive an award, Sponsor reserves the right to not present an award.
Selected Honorees (defined below) will receive the Award and award-related materials for the year in which Candidate won the award. Upon selection as an Honoree, at the conclusion of each calendar year, the Honoree will be reevaluated by Sponsor to determine whether Honoree continues to meet the criteria necessary to receive an additional Award for the following calendar year. If so, the Honoree will receive an Award, and associated Award materials, for the subsequent calendar year. If the Honoree does not meet the criteria to receive an Award, the Honoree will maintain their original Award(s) status but will not be eligible to receive an Award for the subsequent calendar year.
How to Enter:
During the Awards Period, you can nominate an eligible Candidate by completing and submitting the nomination form (“Nomination Form”) available at
. To complete the form, you must provide all required information, including the Candidate company name, company owner first and last name, company email and phone number, and your relationship to Candidate. Upon nomination, Candidates will be placed in a queue for review by Sponsor. Your nomination will be referred to as your submission (“Submission”). Submissions shall only be accepted using the Nomination Form. Any Submissions that are provided in any manner except for the manner explained here will not be accepted.
After you have submitted your Submission, the Candidate may be notified via email or telephone call, requesting acceptance of your nomination. Your Submission will not be considered approved and will not be included in the Award Program unless and until the Candidate accepts the nomination. To accept the nomination, the Candidate must respond to the Sponsor’s email and accept the nomination within thirty (30) days. Nominator and Candidate may be asked to provide further information or documentation sufficient for Sponsor to confirm identity and eligibility. Nominator and Candidate may opt out of the Award Program at any time.
By uploading your Submission, you agree that your Submission conforms to the Guidelines and Content Restrictions provided below (collectively, the “Guidelines and Restrictions”). Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may remove or reject your Submission and disqualify you from the Award Program if it believes that your Submission fails to conform to the Guidelines and Restrictions.
Submission form must be completed in its entirety and all required information must be provided;
Submission must be in English.
The Submission must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement;
The Submission must not disparage Sponsor or any other person or party affiliated with the Awards;
The Submission must not contain brand names or trademarks other than those owned by Sponsor, which Nominator has a limited license to use to incorporate in his/her Submission in this Awards;
The Submission must not contain images or artwork not created by Nominator;
The Submission must not contain material that is inappropriate, indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, or libelous;

The Submission must not contain material that is unlawful, in violation of or contrary to the laws or regulations in any state where Submission is created.
By participating in the Awards, each Nominator warrants and represents that his/her Submission is original, has not been previously published or won any award, does not contain any material that would defame or otherwise violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party, including patents, copyrights, trademarks or rights of privacy or publicity, and will not violate any federal, state or local laws or ordinances. Nominator further warrants and represents that he/she has secured the requisite consent from any third party referenced in the Submission. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and unfettered discretion to disqualify any Submission that it believes contains obscene, offensive or inappropriate content, that does not comply with these Terms and Conditions or that is not consistent with the spirit or theme of the Award Program. All Submissions become the property of Sponsor when submitted and will not be acknowledged or returned to the relevant Nominator.
Each Nominator may only submit one (1) Awards Submission for each Candidate per calendar year. Once submitted, unless the Nominator or the Candidate requests that the Submission be withdrawn, the Submission will be retained by Sponsor and may be considered again for future Sponsor-issued awards. Submissions generated by script, macro or other automated means are void. Uploading a Submission constitutes Nominator’s grant to Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such Submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, Nominator shall sign any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights Nominator is granting to use the Submission. Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions; all of which will be void.
Normal Internet access, phone, and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service provider may apply. In the event of a dispute as to any Submission, the authorized account holder of the email address used to submit the Submission will be deemed to be the Nominator and must comply with these Terms and Conditions. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each Nominator may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.
Sponsor also reserves the right to nominate Candidates, at its discretion, for review and eligibility to receive an Award.
The OnCall Air Customer First Award acknowledges Candidates who a.) successfully leverage technological innovation in their business, including through the use of OnCall Air, b.) uphold outstanding reputations, and c.) establish a strong, positive identity in their local area. Assessments based on these criteria are conducted using a scorecard rating system. Candidate(s) may be selected to receive the Award (each, an “Honoree”) in accordance with the process set forth below:
Within four (4) weeks of nomination of a Candidate, a review committee comprised of Sponsor’s employees and selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion (the “Committee”) will review and evaluate the Submissions and nominations received as they relate to the indicated Candidate.
The Committee will review and evaluate each Candidate on a scorecard system, reviewing the following: 1) Consumer reviews, 2) Years in business, 3) Digital reach, 4) Time on OnCall Air, 5) Proposal quality, 6) Utilization frequency, 7) Feature adoption, and 8) Awards and HVAC certifications.
A Candidate who scores at least 45 points and above will be determined to be a potential Honoree, pending verification of eligibility.
Upon selection as a potential Honoree, such potential Honoree will be contacted by Sponsor, and must sign and return the Declaration of Eligibility and Publicity Release, as discussed below, in order to receive the Award.
Notwithstanding anything contained herein, Sponsor expressly reserves the right to identify and select other Candidates which may, from time to time, be discovered by Sponsor through its own efforts. Any such Candidates will be evaluated through the same process, as listed above.
Reassessment In Subsequent Years:
Each Award is specific to the year in which it is presented. An Honoree who receives an Award in a given calendar year will be reassessed by Sponsor on or about one (1) month prior to the yearly anniversary date of Honoree’s receipt of the Award to determine whether Honoree continues to meet the original criteria necessary in order to receive an additional Award for the subsequent calendar year. The receipt date shall be considered the date that Sponsor receives all signed documentation related to the Award, including the Declaration of Eligibility and Publicity Release. If Honoree meets the necessary criteria, the Honoree will receive an Award, and associated Award materials, for the subsequent calendar year. For example, if an Honoree receives an Award on February 1, 2024, that Honoree will be reassessed by Sponsor on or about January 1, 2025 to determine whether Honoree qualifies to receive an Award for use in 2025. If the Honoree does not meet the criteria to receive an Award, the Honoree will maintain their original Award(s) status designated for the year in which it was received, but will not be eligible to receive an Award for any subsequent calendar year unless such Honoree is renominated, reevaluated, and found by Sponsor to meet the assessment criteria.
Each Honoree of the Award Program will receive recognition as a recipient of the Award for the year in which it was presented, an opportunity to participate in a video interview (“Video Interview”), and digital assets from Sponsor’s team that will be shareable through the Honoree’s marketing channels. These assets include: 1.) a Customer First Honoree web badge that can be shared on Honoree’s website and inside their OnCall Air proposals awards section, 2.) a spotlight page on
featuring Honoree’s video interview and a linkback to their business website, and 3.) shareable social posts. OnCall Air will also host and manage each Honoree’s spotlight page and announce Honoree through Sponsor’s social channels.
Honorees will be given the opportunity to participate in either a virtual or in-person recorded Video Interview, where Sponsor will interview a designated representative or representatives of Honoree to answer various questions relating to Honoree’s business and business practices. To participate, a qualified, designated officer of Honoree must provide the name(s) of any representatives, and those representatives must sign and complete a General Media Authorization and Release prior to participation in the Video Interview. This video will be incorporated into the Honoree’s spotlight page on Sponsor’s website, available at
. Participation in the Video Interview constitutes participant’s and Honoree’s grant to Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display, such Video Interview, including participant’s name, image, voice, and overall likeness, in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes, without compensation to Honoree. If requested, potential Honoree shall sign any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights granted to Sponsor to use the Video Interview.
Businesses and individuals who are not actively utilizing the OnCall Air platform, and/or who are have ceased usage of OnCall Air, and/or who have retired from operation as a business associated with OnCall Air, and/or who maintain a compromised or negative business reputation, at Sponsor’s discretion, are not eligible to participate in this Award Program and are not eligible to receive a nomination or Award through this Award Program. Honorees that cease to be active users of the OnCall Air platform will not be eligible for receipt of the Award for any subsequent years, unless and until they reactivate their use of the OnCall Air platform.
Change in Honoree Business Ownership:
In the event that an Honoree’s company is sold, provided that the new proprietor continues usage of OnCall Air, the award status shall remain undisturbed for the remainder of the relevant calendar year. Reassessment of award status will be conducted by Sponsor at the conclusion of the applicable calendar year, and Sponsor retains the right to renew or revoke the award status, at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Revocation of Award:
Sponsor reserves the right to revoke Honoree’s Award if Honoree ceases use of the OnCall Air platform, and/or engages in conduct that is unbecoming of an Award recipient, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Such conduct may include, but is not limited to: persistent misuse of OnCall Air Customer First’s marks, including the OnCall Air Customer First Award name and logo; failure to provide timely payment for any selected OnCall Air services; and fraudulent reporting and/or a lack of compliance with any applicable state and/or local licensing laws that relate to and/or govern the professions and trades applicable to Honoree and Sponsor.
In the event that Honoree’s Award is revoked, Honoree must immediately cease all use of OnCall Air Customer First marks, logos, and descriptions, including those related to this Award Program. Honoree may no longer represent that Honoree was selected as a recipient of the Award.

If Award Program or any part of it is terminated, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, determine the Honoree(s) from among all non-suspect, eligible Submissions received up to time of such action using the review procedure outlined above. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the Submission process or the operation of the Award Program or to be acting in violation of the Terms and Conditions of this or any other program or promotion offered or administered by Sponsor, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, and to void all associated Submissions.

Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
