ODDS OF WINNING A PRIZE:
The odds of winning the Prize depend on the number of entrants participating in the Promotion during the Promotion Period. The odds of winning the Prize can be calculated by dividing the number of Prizes (one (1)) by the total number of Entries received.
Federal, state and local taxes, and all similar fees and assessments, are the responsibility of the Prize winner. Sponsor reserves the right to withhold taxes from the winning Prize, as appropriate. Sponsor will issue a form 1099-MISC for the Prize winner for the ARV of the Prize.
Promotion entry constitutes permission for Sponsor to use entrants’ names and likenesses, biography and voice for advertising and promotional purposes without further compensation in all media without limitation, unless otherwise prohibited by law.
By entering the Promotion, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Personality, Knuckle Sandwich, LLC, the Law Office of Jeffrey B. Gandel, H&R Block® and all other sponsors of the Event and their respective representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, agents, and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, “Covered Parties”) from and against any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from, or in connection with, the Promotion (including the Prize, and all travel associated with attending the Event, as applicable) including, but not limited to, liability arising from copyright infringement, improper use of likeness, personal injury, death, damages or monetary loss. Restrictions, conditions and limitations apply. By entering, each entrant further agrees that, in the event that there is any conflict or other inconsistency between the Promotion Rules and any advertisements, promotional or marketing materials, e-mails or announcements relevant to the Promotion, these Promotion Rules will govern.
CHOICE OF LAW/DISPUTE RESOLUTION/CLASS ACTION:
These Promotion Rules shall be treated as though they were executed and performed in New York, New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). The parties (and Covered Parties) hereby agree to arbitrate all claims that may arise under and/or relate to the Promotion and/or these Promotion Rules. Without limiting the foregoing, should a dispute arise between the parties/any Covered Parties including, without limitation, any matter concerning the Promotion, the Prize, the terms and conditions of these Promotion Rules or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties/Covered Parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in New York, NY, in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration rules of the AAA; and (b) you agree to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found here. The Covered Party(ies) named in your Initial Dispute Notice (collectively, the “Named Parties”) may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”). If the applicable Named Party(ies) provide(s) you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or such Named Party(ies) cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute and you wish to proceed, you must submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before the AAA, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is available here. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than the applicable Final Settlement Offer, then the Named Party(ies) will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, the Named Party(ies) will reimburse any reasonable attorneys’ fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Although the Named Party(ies) may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if Named Party(ies) prevail(s) in arbitration, the Named Party(ies) will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against any of the Covered Parties. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney’s fees and court costs that any Covered Party incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (i) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (ii) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you first enter the Promotion.
The Covered Parties are not responsible for lost, interrupted or unavailable network server or other connections, miscommunications, failed telephone or computer transmissions or technical failure, lost Entries, jumbled, scrambled or misdirected transmissions, or other error of any kind, whether human, mechanical or electronic. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Promotion, as solely determined by Sponsor, will be disqualified. If disqualified for any of the above reasons, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate entrant’s eligibility to participate in the Promotion. In the event that any portion of the Promotion is compromised by technical error, virus, bugs, non-authorized human intervention or other causes beyond the control of Sponsor which, in the sole opinion of Sponsor, corrupts or impairs the administration, security, fairness or proper determination of the Promotion, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate the Promotion or any part of the Promotion, or any combination of the above. The Covered Parties are not responsible for any problem with Entries generated by computer hardware or software malfunction, error or failure, whatever the cause.
You agree to release, indemnify and hold the Covered Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and settlement costs), damages, suits, costs, demands and/or judgments whatsoever, made by any third party due to or arising out of: (a) your improper and/or unauthorized participation in the Promotion; (b) your breach of these Promotion Rules; and/or (c) your violation of any rights of another individual and/or entity. The provisions of this paragraph are for the benefit of the Covered Parties. Each of these individuals and entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
Any attempt by any individual, whether or not an entrant, to damage, destroy, tamper with or vandalize the Site and/or associated technology, or otherwise interfere with the operation of the Promotion, is a violation of criminal and civil law and Sponsor will diligently pursue any and all remedies in this regard against any offending individual or entity to the fullest extent permissible by law and in equity.
MISCELLANEOUS: These Promotion Rules contain the full and complete understanding with respect to the Promotion and supersede all prior and contemporaneous agreements, representations and understandings, whether oral or written. The headings herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of these Promotion Rules, and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof. No amendment to, or waiver of, any provision of these Promotion Rules shall be effective unless in writing and signed by Sponsor. The waiver by Sponsor of any provision of these Promotion Rules shall not constitute a waiver of any other provision herein. The rights and obligations hereunder may not be assigned by entrant, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Sponsor, and any attempted assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be null and void. These Promotion Rules shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the permitted successors and assigns of Sponsor and entrant.
