Promotional Giveaway Rules

Promotional Giveaway Rules




1.         Eligibility.


The Strafford CPE Pass Giveaway (the “Giveaway”) is open to legal individual residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry. Employees of Strafford and other companies associated with the promotion of the Giveaway, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and advertising and promotion agencies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible.  All such entries are void.


The Giveaway is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations and participation that violates such laws and regulations is prohibited, and voids the entry.  Further, if any customer of Strafford has a policy that would prohibit employees from participating in this Giveaway, such participation is prohibited and void.


2.         Sponsor


The Giveaway is sponsored by Strafford Publications, 590 Dutch Valley Road (P.O. Box 13729) Atlanta, Georgia 30324-0729. 


3.         Agreement to Official Rules


Participation in the Giveaway constitutes entrants full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of Strafford, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Official Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.


4.         Giveaway Period


The Giveaway begins on 10/17/19 at 9:00 AM EST and ends on 10/25/19 at Midnight EST (the “Giveaway Period”). Entries that are submitted before or after the Giveaway Period will be disqualified. Submissions will be accepted for the duration of the Giveaway using any of the methods described in Rule 5.


5.         How to Enter


The Giveaway may be entered by completing the brief survey and providing a valid email address for the person completing the survey. No purchase is necessary to enter the Giveaway


6.         Prize Drawing


On or about 10/28/19, Strafford will select the potential winners in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. Strafford will attempt to notify the potential winner via telephone or email on or about 10/28/19. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, Strafford may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.


7.         Winner Notification


The potential winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. The winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) may in Strafford’s sole discretion be required to complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Strafford reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to sign the Declaration of Compliance on the potential winners behalf and fulfill any other requirements imposed on winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Strafford will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.  Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 2 weeks after the conclusion of the Giveaway.


8.         Prize


There will be one prize: A Strafford CPE Annual Pass. The current estimated value of the Grand Prize, based on the amount for which it is normally sold by Strafford, is $797.  The odds of winning depend entirely on the number of entries received, which cannot be determined in advance.  



9.         General Conditions


In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Giveaway is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm,  unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the event the Giveaway is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Strafford in its sole discretion, Strafford may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Giveaway to address the impairment and then resume the Giveaway in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the Giveaway and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, nonsuspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. Strafford reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Strafford reserves the right to seek damages (including attorneys fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by Strafford to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.


10.       Release and Limitations of Liability


By participating in the Giveaway, entrants agree to release and hold harmless Strafford, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, other companies associated with the Giveaway, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, representatives, and agents (the Released Parties) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Giveaway or receipt or use of the prize (including any travel or activity related thereto), including, but not limited to: (a) any technical errors associated with the Giveaway, including lost, interrupted or unavailable Internet Service Provider (ISP), network, server, wireless service provider, or other connections, availability or accessibility or miscommunications or failed computer, satellite, telephone, cellular tower or cable transmissions, lines, or technical failure or jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected transmissions or computer hardware or software malfunctions, failures or difficulties; (b) unauthorized human intervention in the Giveaway; (c) mechanical, network, electronic, computer, human, printing or typographical errors; (d) lost, late, incomplete, garbled, illegible, undelivered, stolen, damaged, delayed, postage-due or misdirected mail, entries, (e) any other errors or problems in connection with the Giveaway, including, without limitation, errors that may occur in the administration of the Giveaway, the announcement of the winner, the cancellation or postponement of the event and/or the flyover, if applicable, or in any Giveaway-related materials; or (f) injury, death, losses or damages of any kind, to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrants participation in the Giveaway or acceptance, receipt or misuse of the prize (including any travel or activity related thereto).
