What are the Thumb Wrestling Contest Promotion Official Rules?
Thumb Wrestling Contest Promotion
Sponsor: Dr. Squatch, LLC (“Dr. Squatch”)
Eligibility: The Dr. Squatch Thumb Wrestling Contest Promotion (“Promotion”) with Alex Honnold (“Honnold”) is open to residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older. Void where prohibited. This is a contest of skill, and NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE. By participating in this Promotion, you (“you” or “participant”) agree to be legally bound by these rules.
Contests: Contest #1: On June 7, 2023, between [4:00-6:00pm PT], locate Honnold on Venice Beach in California and challenge him to a thumb wrestling contest (“Venice Contest”). Contest #2: From June 8-August 30, 2023, at any location within the U.S., if you see Honnold, challenge him to a thumb wrestling contest (“Summer Contest”). For either contest, make sure that your record you challenge with Honnold in its entirety. If you beat Alex, share the complete video (“Footage”) on your own Instagram account and tag @drsquatch and use the hashtag #drsquatch to verify your win. A winner of the Venice Contest must upload its Footage no later than 11:59 pm PDT, June 7, 2023. A winner of the Summer Contest must upload its Footage no later than 11:59 PDT, August 30, 2023. A participant is only eligible to challenge Honnold one time, regardless of the location or contest, and may only post its Footage to only one social media account. Footage posted to the social media account after the deadlines noted above will not be considered for a prize.
Use of Footage: By posting your Footage and tagging @drsquatch to enter this Promotion, each participant grants Sponsor a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual right and license to use all or part of each participant’s Footage in any and all media, now known or later developed, without additional compensation. Sponsor is under no obligation to use said Footage.
Prizes: For the Venice Contest, Sponsor shall award $250 USD each to the first twenty (20) participants who post eligible Footage, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion (each, a “winner”). Total prize value for the Venice Contest is $5000 USD. If fewer than 20 winners post eligible Footage, then less than $5000 will be awarded. For the Summer Contest, Sponsor shall award a year’s supply of Dr. Squatch soap (i.e., 12 bars), with a verifiable retail value of $96 USD to each participant who posts eligible Footage (each, a “winner”), as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. The total value of prizes awarded in the Summer Contest depends on the number of participants posting eligible Footage. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. Winners are solely responsible for any taxes associated with the prizes. Prizes for the Summer Contest cannot be redeemed for cash. Each participant agrees to be bound by the rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final.
Prize notification: Sponsor shall notify each potential winner by direct message via the social media account through which the winner posted its Footage. ANY VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES BY ANY WINNER (AS DETERMINED BY SPONSOR IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION) WILL RESULT IN SUCH WINNER’S DISQUALIFICATION AND ALL PRIVILEGES AS WINNER WILL BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.
Neither Honnold, Sponsor nor its affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, or agents shall have liability for a potential winner’s failure to receive a notice of winning, regardless of the reason, including without limitation failures due to errors related to a winner’s social media account, direct messaging, connectively, spam, or other security settings or due to winner providing incorrect or otherwise inaccurate account or contact information. In the event of any of the following, a prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected: (i) winning Footage is discovered to be invalid for any reason whatsoever; (ii) a selected potential winner either fails to comply with these Official Rules prior to delivery of the prize or refuses the prize or any portion thereof; or (iii) a selected potential winner cannot be contacted for any reason (including an email, text message, or direct message delivery failure), fails to claim the prize within 5 days from the date that notification was sent, or fails to timely return a completed affidavit of eligibility and release as required by Sponsor.
Upon contacting a potential winner and determining that all eligibility requirements for the Promotion have been met, including without limitation the execution of an affidavit of eligibility and release (except where prohibited by law) and completion of such other documents as Sponsor may reasonably require, if applicable, such individual will be declared an “official winner” of the Promotion.
