GOLDEN PICKLE PROMOTION - OFFICIAL RULES


NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. MAKING A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

 

 

1. Promotion Description. The Golden Pickle Promotion (“Promotion”) begins on November 2, 2020 at 10:00 am CST and ends on December 31, 2020 at 10:00 pm CST (the “Promotion Period”). This Promotion is sponsored by Design Pickle LLC (“Sponsor”) and administered by IntellaSense LLC (“Administrator”), and is subject to these rules (the “Official Rules”). By participating in the Promotion, each Entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and Administrator, which will be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor and Administrator are each responsible for the collection, submission, and processing of Entries and the overall administration of the Promotion, and Entrants should look solely to Sponsor or Administrator with any questions, comments, or problems related to the Promotion. During the Promotion Period, Sponsor may be reached by email at help@designpickle.com and Administrator may be reached by email at thelab@grindology.com.


2.  Eligibility. The Promotion is open to legal residents of the United States, excluding residents of Florida, New York, and Rhode Island, who are 18 years of age or older (each, an “Entrant”). Sponsor and Administrator, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, contractors, and employees (the “Promotion Parties”), are ineligible to enter the Promotion or win the Prize. Household members (people who share the same residence at least three months a year) and immediate family members (parents, step-parents, legal guardians, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, or spouses) of such individuals are also not eligible to enter or win. Design Pickle customers prior to the Promotion Period are also not eligible to enter or win. This Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited or restricted by law.


3. Prize. One Entrant (the “Winner”) will win a full year of Design Pickle’s Graphic Design Pro Package (the “Prize”), which will give the Winner access to a dedicated designer who will assist the winner in designing marketing, advertising, and promotional material for the winner’s business (visit Design Pickle’s website to learn more about what is included with the Graphic Design Pro Package). The Prize has an approximate retail value of $11,940, which represents Sponsor’s good faith determination. The Prize cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted by the Winner. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to award a substitute prize of equal or greater value if the above Prize is unavailable or cannot be awarded, in whole or in part, for any reason. That determination is final and binding and cannot be appealed. If the actual value of the Prize turns out to be less than $11,940, the difference will not be awarded in cash. Sponsor makes no representation or warranty concerning the Prize awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. Failure to comply with the Official Rules will result in forfeiture of the Prize. Sponsor will issue a 1099 Form to the Winner, and Winner is solely responsible for all federal, state, and/or local taxes, fees, and surcharges.


4. How to Enter. Entrants may enter the Promotion during the Promotion Period in one of two ways:

 

  1. Becoming a Grindology™ subscription member by purchasing a quarterly or annual subscription to Grindology’s products, or

 

  1. Submitting your first and last name, email address, and mailing address in the no purchase necessary entry form, which can be found online at: grindology.com/goldenpickle.

 

An Entrant who enters the Promotion by purchasing a Grindology™ subscription will not have a higher chance of winning than an Entrant who enters the Promotion by filling out the no purchase necessary entry form. The above two entry methods are the only entry methods available to Entrants, and any other attempt at entry to the Promotion will be void. Automated or robotic entries submitted by individuals or organizations will be disqualified, and all entries must be made directly by the Entrant. Any attempt by Entrant to obtain more than one entry by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, logins, or any other methods will void those entries and Entrant may be disqualified. Final eligibility for the award of the Prize is subject to eligibility verification by Sponsor or Administrator. All entries must be posted by the end of the Promotion Period in order to participate.


5. Winner Selection. The Winner of the Promotion will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. The random drawing will be conducted via livestream in early January 2021 by Administrator or its designated representatives, whose decisions are final and will not be subject to any challenge. Administrator will make its best efforts to notify Entrants via the email addresses provided by each Entrant at least one week prior to the livestream drawing to give Entrants the ability to watch the drawing occur live. The Odds of winning the Promotion will vary depending on the number of eligible entries received.


6. Winner Notification. No matter which method the Winner chose to submit his or her entry to the Promotion, immediately after the random drawing, Administrator will send to the mailing address provided by Winner, a Grindology™ subscription box containing a post card displaying the “Golden Pickle” (the Grindology™ subscription box has a retail value of $49.99 and will also contain two bags of ground coffee, a mug, and a magazine). Winner must accept the Prize by emailing Sponsor at the email address provided on the post card by 11:59 pm CST on January 31, 2021. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or failure to receive notification for any reason, including inactive email account(s), technical difficulties associated therewith, or Winner’s failure to adequately monitor any email account. Any winner notification not responded to or returned as undeliverable may result in Prize forfeiture. No substitution or transfer of the Prize is permitted except by Sponsor.

 

The Winner will be required to sign an affidavit confirming that the Winner meets the eligibility requirements for participating in the Promotion, has fully complied with the Official Rules, is responsible for paying all income taxes on the Prize, releases the Promotion Parties from liability for the conduct of the Promotion or use of the Prize, and provides the Promotion Parties with a publicity release for the use of the Winner’s name, likeness, address (city and state), photograph, statements in any way connected with the Promotion, and biographical information for marketing purposes without further compensation or right of approval, unless prohibited by law.
