- SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION OF WINNER.
TaskRabbit will select fifty (50) winners (each, a “Winner”) who will be selected by qualified individuals who are TaskRabbit’s employees and/or authorized representatives based equally upon the criteria of skill, originality, and relevance. TaskRabbit reserves the right to judge which photo is the winning submission. Each Winner will receive the Prize described in Section 7 below. The odds of winning depend on the number and quality of eligible Entries received. The decisions of TaskRabbit are final on all matters relating to this Contest.
Winners will be notified by TaskRabbit by October 31, 2018 (“Notification”). Each Winner will be required to respond (as directed) within twenty-four hours after attempted Notification. Each Winner’s failure to respond timely to the Notification may result in forfeiture of a prize, and in such case, TaskRabbit may select an alternate Winner from among the remaining eligible entries. Winners may be sent a declaration of eligibility, assumption of liability and publicity release (collectively, the “Release”). Except where prohibited by law, the Release will state that a Winner agrees to allow TaskRabbit to use (without additional compensation) such Winner’s name, Submission, address, photograph, testimonial, likeness and/or biographical information for purposes of advertising and promotion (including, without limitation, posting on TaskRabbit’s website(s) and affiliated website(s)). Winners may also be required to provide name, U.S. Social Security Number (for tax form purposes), birth date, current address, and phone number. Unless restricted by law, Winners will be required to complete and return the Release within the time period specified therein. A prize may be forfeited, and in such case, an alternate Winner may be selected from among the remaining eligible entries if a Winner (up to three times): (i) cannot be reached; (ii) does not respond to the Notification in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; (iii) fails to obtain all signatures on the Release and to return the documents in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; or (iv) cannot accept or receive a prize for any reason. Non-compliance with these Official Rules may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate Winner.
If eligible under these Rules, each Winner will be awarded the following award: a $25 Amazon gift card (the “Prize”).
Form of payment and delivery of the Prize (e.g. cash, check, gift card, reimbursement, etc.) shall be at TaskRabbit’s sole discretion. Total Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the Prize are as stated above. Gift cards and vouchers are subject to both the TaskRabbit and Amazon Terms of Service.
Eligibility, age, and any and all other claims shall be subject to verification prior to the actual awarding of the Prize. All details regarding redemption of the Prize are at TaskRabbit’ sole discretion and will be provided at the time of Notification.
Each Winner is solely responsible for any other unspecified expenses related to the Prize, including without limitation and any and all federal, state, and local taxes on the Prize. A Winner is not entitled to any surplus between actual retail value of the Prize and stated ARV and any difference between stated ARV and actual value of the Prize will not be awarded.
No substitution, transfer, or cash redemption of the Prize, or cash for any portion of the Prize not used, shall be given, provided however that TaskRabbit reserves the right to substitute the Prize with another prize of equal or greater value should the advertised Prize become unavailable for any reason. Any and all activities related to the Prize are at each Winner’s own risk and subject to whatever restrictions are imposed by the entities that govern activities. If a Winner is unable to participate in or accept the Prize or any portion of the Prize for any reason, TaskRabbit shall have no further obligation to such Winner. The Prize shall only be delivered to an address in the United States. Limit one Prize per person.
Each Winner agrees to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless TaskRabbit and each of its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents from and against any claims, damages, disability, attorneys' fees, and costs of litigation and settlement, as well as any liability due to any injuries, damages or losses to any person (including death) or property of any kind resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from your participation in the Contest, Contest-related activity, your Entry, your winning a Prize and your use of a Prize (as the case may be), including, without limitation with respect to claims of copyright or trademark infringement, false endorsement, libel, slander, defamation or infringement of rights of publicity or privacy and any deletion or failure to store any Entries and other communications related to the Contest.
TaskRabbit reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or violating these Official Rules, and reserves the right at its sole discretion to terminate the Contest and, if terminated, at its discretion, select the potential winner(s) from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to action taken. TaskRabbit shall not be liable for: (i) late, lost, delayed, void, corrupted, misdirected, incomplete, unreadable, inaccurate, garbled or unintelligible entries, communications or declarations, regardless of the method of transmission; (ii) telephone system, telephone or computer hardware, software or other technical malfunctions, bugs, lost connections, disconnections, delays or transmission errors Contest Entrants may encounter when submitting their entry; (iii) data corruption, theft, destruction, unauthorized access to or alteration of entry or other materials; (iv) any injuries, losses or damages of any kind caused by Prize or resulting from acceptance, possession or use of Prize, or from participation in the Contest; or (v) any printing, typographical, administrative or technological errors in any materials associated with the Contest.
