A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.Sponsor: Walk To Win Contest (“Contest”) is sponsored by A Place for Rover, Inc., 2101 4th Ave., Suite 400, Seattle, WA 98121 (“Sponsor”).Eligibility: This Contest is open only to individuals who are legal residents the United States and are at least 18 years of age (or over the age of majority in their state of permanent legal residence, whichever is older) and are Rover.com Sitters who, during the Entry Period, provide dog walking services in the following metropolitan areas: Austin, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; Denver, Colorado; Los Angeles, California; New York, New York; Portland, Oregon; San Diego, California; San Francisco, California; Seattle, Washington; and Washington, DC (the “Eligible Sitters”). Directors, officers, and employees of Sponsor and any of each of their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, professional advisors, and advertising and promotional agencies, and their immediate families and household members, are not eligible to enter the Contest or win any prizes.Entry Period: The entry period for this Contest begins on Thursday, September 15th, 2016 at 12:00 am and ends on Saturday, October 15th, 2016 at 5:00 pm (all times in these Official Rules are Eastern Time) (the “Entry Period”). All entries must be received by Sponsor during the Entry Period.How to Enter: Entries are automatically generated when, during the Entry Period, a client who is new to Rover.com (i.e., who has not previously created a user account on Rover.com) books a dog walk with an Eligible Sitter by clicking through that Sitter’s Custom Profile Link and the Eligible Sitter completes the dog walk (each, an “Entry”). (As used herein, a “Custom Profile Link” is a hyperlink that is created via Rover.com by an Eligible Sitter, together with a “Custom Promo Code,” each of which contains certain tracking data unique to that Sitter. Only bookings made via an Eligible Sitter’s correctly structured Custom Profile Link qualify as Entries. Rover will not be liable with regard to any failure by an Eligible Sitter or client to use, insert or correctly format a Custom Profile Link.) To generate entries, Eligible Sitters are encouraged to share their Custom Profile Links and related Custom Promo Codes widely and creatively outside of Rover.com, through, without limitation, social media posts, blog posts, signage, or distribution of business cards or flyers (each, a “Promotional Effort”); provided, however, that entrants may not post Custom Profile Links or Custom Promo Codes on any coupon or promo code website or other, similar property (such as, for example and without limitation, retailmenot.com, coupons.com or promocodes.com), and any posting or use of such sites or properties by an Eligible Sitter may immediately disqualify all Entries of such Eligible Sitter. By entering this Contest or accepting any winnings from this Contest, each Eligible Sitter certifies that he or she has complied with and accepts these Official Rules and is eligible to win, and gives her or his express permission to be contacted by the Sponsor (and third-parties directed by Sponsor) at any email address or telephone number listed in her or his Rover.com sitter account. Eligible Sitters also agree that all decisions of Sponsor in administering the Contest are within Sponsor’s sole discretion and are final.
Winner Selection: All entrants/entries are subject to verification at Sponsor’s sole discretion. After the Entry Period, representatives from Sponsor will identify the Eligible Sitters with the first, second and third highest number of Entries and inform them of their ranked status. In the unlikely event of a tie among any of the top three Eligible Sitters or between any of the top three Eligible Sitters and any other Eligible Sitters (all of the foregoing, “Tied Entrants”), Sponsor will, in its sole discretion, either: (i) award the Tied Entrants the highest Prize to which they could be entitled based on their number of Entries; or (ii) request each Tied Entrant to submit, within a specific period of time communicated by Sponsor, a sample of his or her Promotional Efforts shared during the Entry Period. In the event Sponsor elects the second course of action, then, a panel of judges comprised of representatives from Sponsor will review all samples submitted and rank the Tied Entrants based on which samples are, in the judges’ sole discretion, the most creative, appealing and reflective of the Rover spirit; any Tied Entrant who does not submit a sample of his or her Promotional Efforts within the time allotted will receive the inferior ranking and/or may be disqualified.
Prize winners will be notified via any email address or telephone number listed in their respective Rover.com sitter accounts (the “Winner Notifications”). Potential winners may be required, within three (3) days of Winner Notification being sent, to: (i) provide to Sponsor further contact and residence information; and (ii) execute and deliver a written affidavit of eligibility, acceptance of these Official Rules, release of liability/publicity, tax forms, and other reasonable documentation. (In the event that a potential winner does not timely satisfy all of the above requirements, disqualification may result and an alternate winner may be selected based on the criteria listed above.)
Odds of Winning: Odds of winning depend on the quality and number of eligible Entries received. Many will enter; few will win.
Prize: Three (3) prizes will be awarded (“Prizes”), as follows: (i) the top-ranked winner will receive $20 per Entry; (ii) the second-ranked winner will receive $15 per Entry; and (iii) the third-ranked winner will receive $10 per Entry. Prizes returned as undeliverable or otherwise not claimed or accepted by the applicable entrant within seven days after delivery may, at Sponsor’s discretion, be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. No substitutions or exchanges (including for cash) of any prizes will be permitted, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value for any prize. All Prizes are awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). All federal, state and local taxes associated with the receipt or use of any Prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.
Release of Liability: Sponsor will not be responsible for late, lost, illegible, incomplete, damaged, or misdirected entries or for any technical or human error in administration of this Contest and accepts no responsibility for any injury, loss, or damage of any kind resulting from an entrant’s participation in this Contest.
