NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL, AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
The Basics: Monthly drawings for free pool products. Initial entries and additional “rewards” entries (for social sharing and other actions) will be accepted till Thursday night 11:59pm EST. Winners will be selected and notified the next day (Friday – Hence, “Freebie Fridays”). Additionally, for as long as we decide to continue our monthly drawings, a new monthly drawing will be starting as the winner from last month’s drawing is being notified.
Also important to note is that, as long as you remain subscribed to our email list, all previous entries that you’ve tallied up will be eligible to be drawn for any future drawing. So, if you don’t win this month, no worries, you might win next month.
And, of course, nothing described above should be understood to supersede the legal details outlined below. Ultimately, the legal descriptions found below are what you are bound by – but it’s all pretty straight-forward. Just don’t try to game the system, and you’re good.
The Details: If you’d like a bit more explanation of the rules, feel free to read through the below legal stuff.
The ProTuff Products Freebie Fridays Giveaway (the “Sweepstake”) is open to legal 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 ProTuff Products LLC and other companies associated with the promotion of the Sweepstake, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and advertising and promotion agencies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible. The Sweepstake is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
The Sweepstake is sponsored by ProTuff Products LLC, located at 12151 Vergennes St., Lowell, Michigan 49331.
3. Agreement to Official Rules
Participation in the Sweepstake constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, 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. Sweepstake Period
If you are viewing this document AFTER the 4th Friday of this month, then the current monthly Sweepstake began on the 4th Friday of THIS month at 12:00 am (midnight) EDT and ends on the 4th Thursday of next month at 11:59pm (1 minute BEFORE midnight) EDT (the “Sweepstake Period”).
If you are viewing this document BEFORE the 4th Friday of this month, then the current monthly Sweepstake began on the 4th Friday of LAST month at 12:00 am (midnight) EDT and ends on the 4th Thursday of THIS month at 11:59pm (1 minute BEFORE midnight) EDT (the “Sweepstake Period”).
Submissions will be accepted for the duration of the Sweepstake ONLY via our online entry form.
5. How to Enter
Online: This method of entry will be available by visiting this link (https://upvir.al/116183/lp116183) and following the directions provided to fill out the entry information and submit.
Limit one (1) initial entry per person, per email address, and per household for the duration of the Sweepstake period. Initial entries received from any person, email address, or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. All entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Your chance of winning can be increased by earning “points” for referring others to the Sweepstakes or performing other simple tasks (watch a short video, etc.). Each point is an additional “secondary” entry in the Sweepstakes and could also earn you other rewards.
6. Prize Drawing
Within 1 business day following the end of the Sweepstakes, the Sponsor will select potential winners in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The odds of being selected depend on the total number of entries received as well as the number of secondary entries any individual participant may have earned through sharing, etc. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via email within 2 business days following the end of the Sweepstakes. If the potential winner does not respond within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may or may not 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. Each potential Grand Prize winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) will 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, Sponsor 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 winner’s 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, Sponsor may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all the remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings may be held, after which the prize will remain UN-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 1-2 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstake.
There is only one Grand Prize to be awarded to the winner of this month’s Freebie Friday Giveaway Sweepstake. This prize is a $1000 Amazon “PoolPalooza” Shopping Spree. You supply us (ProTuff Products) with your Amazon Wishlist for swimming pool related products, tools, toys, accessories or other paraphernalia, and we’ll buy all of the items and ship them to the address of your choice – up to a total bill of $1000 (including any shipping and tax expenses).
9. Monthly Sweepstake
This ProTuff Freebie Friday Giveaway Sweepstake will be repeated monthly until the Sponsor decides to terminate its recurrence. Entrants from previous ProTuff Freebie Friday Giveaway Sweepstakes who are still subscribed to one of our email lists continue to be eligible to win the Grand Prize in the current Sweepstake as well. All of their previous cumulative points/entries continue to be valid for each subsequent Sweepstake drawing, as long as they remain subscribed to our email list. If a Sweepstake entry is submitted during the current Sweepstake Period (IE. sometime between the Sweepstake beginning date/time and ending date/time displayed earlier in this specific Sweepstake Rules document), the entry is valid and has an equal chance of winning the Grand Prize as any other entry submitted during this or any previous ProTuff Freebie Friday Giveaway Sweepstake drawing. At such time as Sponsor determines to terminate recurring Freebie Friday Giveaway Sweepstakes, all previous points/entries become invalid and will no longer hold any potential to win future prizes. Sponsor will never terminate the monthly Sweepstake mid-month, while entries are still being collected for a future drawing (except in such a case as referred to in the General Conditions section below). If Sponsor decides to terminate the recurrence of monthly Sweepstakes drawings, Sponsor will simply cease receiving entries/submissions to the online registration form as of the end date/time of the previous Sweepstake. At the conclusion of the last monthly of Sweepstakes, no further entries will be taken and no further drawings will be held.
10. General Conditions
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstake 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 Sweepstake is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Sweepstake to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstake in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the Sweepstake and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor 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 Sweepstake 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 Sweepstake may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages (including attorney’s fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
11. Release and Limitations of Liability
By participating in the Sweepstake, entrants agree to release and hold harmless the Sponsor, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, other companies associated with the Sweepstake, 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 Sweepstake 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 Sweepstake, 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 Sweepstake; (c) mechanical, network, electronic, computer, human, printing or typographical errors; (d) application downloads, (e) any other errors or problems in connection with the Sweepstake, including, without limitation, errors that may occur in the administration of the Sweepstake, the announcement of the winner, the cancellation or postponement of the event and/or the flyover, if applicable, the incorrect downloading of the application, the processing of entries application downloads or in any Sweepstake-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 Sweepstake or acceptance, receipt or misuse of the prize (including any travel or activity related thereto). Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstake, and in no event shall the entrant be entitled to receive attorney’s fees. Released Parties are also not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by site users, tampering, hacking, or by any equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstake. Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.
Except where prohibited, each entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Sweepstake or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in Michigan. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforce-ability of these Official Rules, entrants rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstake, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of Michigan, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than Michigan.
