PRIZEWINNER SELECTION PROCESS:

There will be three (3) Monthly Prizewinners selected in this Sweepstakes. Each Monthly Prizewinner is individually referred to herein as a "Prizewinner" and collectively as "Prizewinners." Each Monthly Prize is referenced hereinafter as "Prize" and collected as "Prizes."

Prizewinners will be selected through random drawings from among all eligible entries received for the respective drawing during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Official Rules, administration of the Sweepstakes, and selection of the prizewinners. Decisions of the Sponsor as to the selection of the prizewinners will be final.

If a potential Prizewinner is found ineligible or fails to comply with these Official Rules, that individual's claim to a Prize is forfeited, and an alternate and eligible Entrant may be contacted at Sponsor's sole discretion. All Prizes legitimately claimed will be awarded.

MONTHLY PRIZEWINNERS:

All potential Monthly Prizewinners will be selected through a random drawing one (1) time per month, the first Monday of each month (if not a business day, selection will be the following business day) for the previous month’s entries, beginning on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, with the final selection being Monday, January 2, 2023. Three (3) Monthly Prizewinners will receive the following:

  • One (1) store credit voucher to be used toward available Cooperative sneaker inventory valued at $200.00 ("Voucher"). Voucher must be redeemed at a valid Cooperative location within six (6) months from the date issued to Prizewinner.

Limit one (1) Prize per person and per household in the entirety of this Sweepstakes. 

All Prizewinners will be required to review and execute further contracts and releases provided by Sponsor to receive the applicable Prize. (See the "Prizewinner Notification" section below for details.) All terms and conditions of the Sponsor Affidavit (defined below) or other prize-acceptance documentation, as well as any other rules, regulations, and guidelines of Sponsor, shall be applicable to the Prize.

PRIZEWINNER NOTIFICATION:

Each potential Prizewinner will be notified using the Personal Information provided during entry by any of email, telephone, and mail (method to be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion) in a commercially reasonable time after the drawing. The potential Prizewinner must respond within twenty-four (24) hours of notification and in accordance with the instructions in the notification, or the Prize may, at Sponsor's sole discretion, be forfeited. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete, or illegible contact information. Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending a direct message, email, and/or placing a telephone call one (1) day after sending via a delivery service or two (2) days after mailing. A potential Prizewinner who provides a PO Box may be required to provide an alternative physical address, and this may cause a delay in notification and acceptance, so the use of a PO Box is discouraged. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for electronic communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, insufficient space in Entrant’s email or voicemail inbox to receive messages, or any limitations associated with receipt or delivery of direct messages. 

Each potential Prizewinner may be required to submit an affidavit of eligibility/release of liability/prize acceptance agreement (collectively, the "Affidavit") and return the Affidavit within the time period specified at notification before being eligible to receive their Prize. All Prize claims, including any required Affidavit, are subject to verification by Sponsor. If any potential Prizewinner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit within the time period required by Sponsor or if the Prize or Prize notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed, or returned as undeliverable to such potential Prizewinner, such potential Prizewinner may be disqualified, and an alternate Prizewinner may be selected. Non-compliance shall result in disqualification. If any potential Prizewinner is found to be ineligible, or if they have not complied with these Official Rules and all other additional or supplemental rules or instructions, or if the potential Prizewinner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the Prize, or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Prizewinner may be disqualified, and an alternate potential Prizewinner may be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide Prizewinners come forward seeking to claim Prizes in excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of Prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such Prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential Prizewinner.

ADDITIONAL PRIZE INFORMATION:

Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen cash, cash equivalent, gift cards, or other forms of prize distributed. In the event of such a loss, Sponsor shall have the right, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to disqualify the Prizewinner or to award to that Prizewinner the remaining elements of the Prize, which shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s prize obligation to the Prizewinner and no additional compensation will be awarded.

Terms and conditions of any gift card awarded apply. Any taxes (federal, state, and local) and all other costs and expenses associated with Prize acceptance or use and not specified in these Official Rules as being part of a Prize will be the sole responsibility of the Prizewinner. Any Prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor at its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any Prize or any portion thereof with another Prize or Prize component of equal or greater value for any reason, including unavailability of the stated Prize. Entrants waive the right to assert, as a cost of winning any Prize, any and all costs of verification and any liability and publicity which might arise from claiming or seeking to claim said Prize.

If Prizewinner does not accept the entire Prize, the unaccepted Prize (or part of the Prize) will be forfeited, and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to that Prize or any portion of that Prize. Sponsor will have no liability for a potential Prizewinner's failure or inability to accept a Prize for any reason. Any failure to use a Prize after acceptance does not relieve the Prizewinner of their tax obligations associated with winning the Prize. No transfers, prize substitutions, or cash redemptions will be made, except at Sponsor's sole discretion. Prizewinner is strictly prohibited from selling, auctioning, trading, or otherwise transferring the opportunity to receive the Prize, except with Sponsor's permission, which may be granted or withheld for any reason in its sole discretion. Prizes will only be shipped or otherwise provided to the verified Prizewinner’s address in the United States and District of Columbia (unless Sponsor agrees otherwise in its sole discretion).

All Entrants, as a condition of entry, agree that they have not been required to purchase any product or service whatsoever from Sponsor in order to participate in and/or enter the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for the actions of Entrants in connection with the Sweepstakes, including Entrants’ attempts to circumvent the Official Rules or otherwise interfere with the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of this Sweepstakes or whom Sponsor believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption, or damage may be disqualified. Additionally, any attempt to cheat the Sweepstakes, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may result in immediate disqualification of Entrant, as well as other possible consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future sweepstakes. ANY ATTEMPT BY A PERSON TO DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE (INCLUDING ANY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM OR APPLICATION) OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THIS SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS, AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK ALL LEGAL AND EQUITABLE REMEDIES FROM AND AGAINST ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify (or terminate the Prize of) any individual who is found to be, or suspected of, acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike, obscene, immoral, or disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.

GOVERNING LAW:

The parties agree that the Sweepstakes and these Official Rules will be governed, construed, and interpreted under the laws of the State of Utah, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Utah or any other jurisdiction) which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Utah.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION:

Entrant, Sponsor, and the other Released Parties (each, a "Party" and collectively the "Parties") each agree to fully and finally settle all disputes pertaining to the Sweepstakes, administration of the Sweepstakes, and/or these Official Rules only through binding arbitration; provided, however, Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Utah County, Utah and any other court with jurisdiction over the Parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury, and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The Parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures of JAMS Inc. ("JAMS") or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a "Demand for Arbitration," then either Party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah or – where required by the arbitration service’s rules – in or near your hometown. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn't apply, and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Utah County, Utah. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of Entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either Party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:

MISCELLANEOUS:

The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules or the Affidavit will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules or the Affidavit is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules or any other guidelines, instructions, policies, or terms will not constitute a waiver of that provision. Entrant agrees to waive any rights to claim ambiguity of these Official Rules. Headings are solely for convenience of reference and will not be deemed to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of the documents or any provision hereof. In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any Sweepstakes-related materials, privacy policy, or terms of use on any website, social media platform, or application and/or the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail, govern, and control and the discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
