  • Weekly Drawing.

For the purpose of this Contest, a “week” will begin at 12:00 a.m. CT on Monday and end at 11:59 p.m. CT on the immediately following Sunday.
  • Grand Prize Drawing. On or about September 1, 2014, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) entry from all the entries received during the Sweepstakes period and such entry shall be the “Grand Prize Winner”.

Sponsor will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Official Rules, of administration of the Sweepstakes, and of selection of all winners. Decisions of the Sponsor as to the selection of the winners will be final. The potential winners will be notified using the information provided during entry by any of email in a commercially reasonable time after the drawing. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information. Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending of an email. A potential prize winner who provides a P.O. Box may be required to provide an alternative address and this may cause a delay in notification and acceptance so use of a P.O. Box is discouraged. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for electronic communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, or insufficient space in entrant’s email account to receive email messages.

The potential winners shall have seventy-two (72) hours after notification to claim their prize. In addition, the potential winners may be required to agree to an affidavit of eligibility / release of liability / prize acceptance agreement (collectively, the “Affidavit”). Sponsor may provide some potential winners the opportunity to complete and return the Affidavit via an online site or tool (“Sweepstakes Website”). The Grand Prize Winner, and others, may be required to physically sign and return the Affidavit within seventy-two (72) hours of being notified before being eligible to receive his or her prize. If any potential prize winner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit as and when required by Sponsor, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed or returned as undeliverable to such potential prize winner, such potential prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate may be selected. Non-compliance shall result in disqualification and award of the prize to an alternate winner. Parents or legal guardians of any prize winner under the age of majority in their state of residence (which is eighteen (18) in most states but is nineteen (19) in Alabama and Nebraska and twenty-one (21) in Mississippi) may be required to also sign the Affidavit in order for the prize winner to be qualified to receive their prize. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the prize, or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward seeking to claim prizes in excess of the number of each type of prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential winners, or if potential winner is a minor, for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts of potential winner to provide signed parental or guardian consent.

12. Dispute Resolution.

A.     Binding Arbitration. By entering the Sweepstakes, you agree that any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Sweepstakes, or any prize shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration; except that you may bring a qualifying claim over a dispute in a small claims court in Cook County, Illinois. By entering the Sweepstakes, you are giving up the right to go to court and have a dispute heard by a judge or jury (except as otherwise set forth in this Section 12(A) or Section 12(D)). The provisions of this Section 12 shall constitute your written agreement to arbitrate disputes under the Federal Arbitration Act (“Agreement”). The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and conducted before a single arbitrator pursuant to its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related disputes, available at http://www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879. The arbitrator will apply and be bound by these Official Rules, apply applicable law and the facts, and issue a reasoned award.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must comply with the limitations provision set forth in Section 12(E) and submit the dispute by utilizing the forms available at http://www.adr.org, and simultaneously sending a copy of the completed form to the following address: C T Corporation System, 208 S. LaSalle Street, Suite 814, Chicago, IL 60604. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. Groupon will reimburse those fees for disputes totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the dispute is frivolous. Likewise, Groupon will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the dispute is frivolous. The arbitration will be conducted by a sole arbitrator based upon written submissions unless you request and/or the arbitrator determines that a telephone or in-person hearing is necessary. If the arbitrator grants the request or determines an in-person hearing is necessary, the hearing will proceed in Chicago, Illinois, unless the arbitrator determines or we agree that the matter should proceed in the county in which you reside.

B.      No Class Action Matters. We each agree that we shall bring any dispute against the other in our respective individual capacities and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, representative proceeding or as an association. In addition, we each agree that disputes shall be arbitrated only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these provisions.

C.      Choice of Law and Forum; No Jury Trial. If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court: (i) you agree that any such dispute may only be instituted in a state or federal court in Cook County, Illinois; (ii) you and Groupon irrevocably consent and submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for resolution of such disputes; (iii) you and Groupon agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, the AAA rules, applicable federal law and the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to principles of conflicts of law, will govern these Official Rules and any disputes; and (iv) you and Groupon agree to waive any right to a trial by jury.

D.      Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Official Rules, either party may bring suit in court seeking an injunction or other equitable relief arising out of or relating to the infringement of a party’s intellectual property.

E.       Time Limitations. If either of us wants to assert a dispute against the other, the party with a dispute must institute arbitration within one (1) year from the date the dispute arose. Absent commencing the arbitration within one (1) year from the date the dispute arose, the dispute(s) will be forever barred.

F.      Severability. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules or the Affidavit will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules or the Affidavit is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
