ELIGIBILITY: The InsideHook October Friends With Benefits Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is open to only legal residents of one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia and who are 18 years of age or older and of the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which the entrant resides, as of the date of entry (and if a winner as of the date of the fulfillment of the prize). No one who as of the date of entry (and, if a winner, as of the date of prize fulfillment) is an employee of InsideHook (“Sponsor”) or any of Sponsor’s parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates or advertising or promotion agencies, or a member of the immediate family or household (whether or not related) of any such employee, is not eligible. Eligibility determinations will be made by Sponsor in its discretion and will be final and binding. U.S. law governs this Sweepstakes. Void where prohibited by law.
HOW TO ENTER: The entry period for the Sweepstakes begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) on October 29, 2020 and continues through 11:59 p.m. ET on November 30, 2020 (the “Entry Period”). No purchase, referral, or subscription to Sponsor’s “InsideHook” newsletter is necessary. To enter the Sweepstakes, during the Entry Period, visit the website located at insidehook.com/refer-a-friend (the “Website”) and follow the on-screen entry instructions. Each entrant must fill out an online entry form (with his or her name, email address, and such other information as Sponsor may require). Each time that a new user subscribes to Sponsor’s “InsideHook” newsletter via an entrant’s Referral Submission, that entrant will receive one entry in the Sweepstakes. Submit more referrals for multiple entries in the sweepstakes. An “InsideHook” subscription is free of charge. There is no limit on the number of times a Referral Link may be shared, but there is a limit of 20 entries per person. All entries must be completed and received by Sponsor prior to the conclusion of the Entry Period. Entry times will be determined using Sponsor’s computer. Normal time rates and data charges, if any, charged by the entrant’s Internet or mobile service provider will apply. All entries are subject to verification at any time. Proof of referral of a third party does not constitute proof of entry. If Sponsor reasonably determines or suspects that an “InsideHook” newsletter subscription has been requested fraudulently, using a fake identity or otherwise improperly (e.g. if multiple subscriptions are requested by one person using multiple email accounts), Sponsor will have the right not to award entries in connection with such subscription. Sponsor will have the right, in its discretion, to require proof of identity or eligibility or both in a form acceptable to Sponsor (including, without limitation, government-issued photo identification). Failure to provide such proof to the satisfaction of Sponsor in a timely manner may result in disqualification.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Following the conclusion of the Entry Period, one potential prize winner will be selected in a random drawing conducted by Sponsor or its agent from among all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. The odds of being selected as the prize winner will depend on the number of eligible entries received. The potential winner will be notified by email (sent to the email address provided by the entrant when entering), or using other contact information provided by the potential winner, at Sponsor’s discretion, and the potential winner must respond to Sponsor’s initial notification attempt within 72 hours. The potential winner is subject to verification of eligibility and may, in Sponsor’s discretion, be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability and, if legally permissible, a Publicity Release, and any other documentation provided by Sponsor in connection with verification of the potential winner’s eligibility and confirmation of the releases and grant of rights set forth in these Official Rules (as applicable, “Winner Verification Documents”), within three days of attempted delivery of same. The potential winner may also in Sponsor’s discretion be required to complete and return to Sponsor an IRS Form W-9 within three days of attempted delivery of same. Verification of the potential winner’s eligibility may also include, without limitation, a background investigation. Each entrant consents to the conduct of a background investigation (which may include a review of criminal records) on the entrant and agrees to supply any authorizations or permissions deemed necessary by Sponsor in connection with any such investigation. If the potential winner cannot be reached or does not respond within 72 hours of the initial notification attempt or fails to complete, sign, and return any required Winner Verification Documents or IRS Form W-9 within three days of attempted delivery of same, or if Sponsor conducts a background investigation on the potential winner and determines in its sole discretion that awarding a prize to the potential winner, publicizing any facts or details about the potential winner or an association of the potential winner with Sponsor or the Sweepstakes might reflect negatively on Sponsor or its products or services or the Sweepstakes or if the potential winner does not otherwise comply with these Official Rules or cannot accept the prize as awarded for any reason, then the potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may, at Sponsor’s discretion, be selected from among the remaining eligible entries as specified in these Official Rules (in which case the foregoing provisions will apply to such newly-selected entrant).
PRIZE: One prize will be offered to the referrer and to one of their referrals chosen at random. The prize consists of one (1) $2,450 gift card by 66°North for the referrer and one (1) $2,450 gift card by 66°North for the referrer’s friend. The total approximate retail value of the prize is $$4,900 USD. All prize details that are not expressly specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its discretion. Restrictions may apply. The prize will be awarded if properly claimed. No substitution, cash redemption or transfer of the right to receive the prize is permitted, except at the discretion of Sponsor, which has the right to substitute the prize with a prize or prize component of equal or greater monetary value selected by Sponsor in its discretion. The prize consists only of the item expressly specified in these Official Rules. All expenses or costs associated with the acceptance or use of the prize are the responsibility of the winner. The prize is awarded “as is” and without any warranty, except as required by law. In no event will more than the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules be awarded.
