disqualified. An entry is “received” when the adidas servers record the entry information. Proof of
creating an adiClub account (such as an automated computer receipt confirming entry or “thanks for

of an entry. The Website’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for each Sweepstakes. Entries
submitted on behalf of entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all
requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Those who do not follow all of the
instructions, provide the required information in their entry form, or abide by these Terms or other
instructions of Sponsor may be disqualified. Sponsor may run multiple campaigns, contests,
sweepstakes or other promotions simultaneously.
B. Winner Selection and Prize Claiming. The potential winner(s) will be selected through a random
drawing on or about the drawing date set forth above from all eligible entries received in accordance
with the Terms. Sponsor will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Terms, of
administration of the Sweepstakes, and of selection of the winner. Decisions of the Sponsor as to the
selection of the winner(s) will be final. The potential winner(s) will be notified using the information
provided during entry by either push notification in App for App-based entries, email, mail or
telephone (the method selected in Sponsor’s sole discretion) in a commercially reasonable time after
the drawing, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor, employees, directors and officers
of Sponsor, affiliate or partner companies, and each of their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries,
advertising and promotion agencies, distributors, co-promotion partners and any other prize suppliers

or illegible contact information. Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending
of an e-mail, placing a phone call, one (1) day after sending via a delivery service or two (2) days after
mailing. The potential winner(s) will be required to submit an affidavit or declaration of eligibility /
release of liability / Prize acceptance agreement (collectively, “Declaration”) and return the
Declaration within the time period specified at notification before being eligible to receive his/her
Prize. Any companion included in a Prize may be required to submit a liability / publicity release.
Failure or refusal to sign and return such Declaration (or companion release) within the time period
required by Sponsor may result in disqualification. 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. Parents or legal guardians of a winner under the age of majority in
their state or province of residence may also be required to sign the Declaration. If the potential
winner is found to be ineligible, is disqualified, or has not complied with the Terms, or cannot attend
or participate in any portion of the Prize or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award an alternate
potential winner may be selected at random. 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 the Terms, 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 winner, or for
potential winner to return signed parental or guardian consent, Declarations or any other documents

condition of winning a prize, to correctly answer, without assistance of any kind, the time-limited,
mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by adidas.

value of such item in cash or an alternate Prize of comparable or greater value. Sponsor is not
responsible for and will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen Prize(s). If the winner does not accept
or use the entire Prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the Prize will be forfeited, and Sponsor will
have no further obligation with respect to that Prize or portion of the Prize. The approximate retail
value (“ARV”) of the Prize(s) is based on available information provided to Sponsor and the value of
any Prize awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. Prize winner(s)

associated with the Prize(s) they receive, regardless of whether they, in whole or in part, are used.

Sponsor’s liability for the Prize is limited only to the non-event portions of the Prize. No compensation
will be paid in lieu of a cancelled or postponed event.
Sponsor may award a “Travel Prize” as part of a Sweepstakes. Actual retail value of a Travel Prize may
vary depending on point of departure, travel dates and fare/rate fluctuations. If the actual value of
the Travel Prize is less than the stated ARV, the difference will not be awarded. If a companion is
included in a Travel Prize, winner and the companion must travel on the same itinerary and each must
possess all required travel documents, including visas and valid passports, if and as applicable. It is the
responsibility of a Travel Prize winner and their companion(s) to provide proper documentation
(including government issued picture identification). Sponsor is not liable if winner or their companion
are not permitted entry into the destination country. Once a travel companion is selected, he/she
may not be substituted, except in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
All travel arrangements must be made through the Sponsor or Sponsor’s designee. Certain restrictions
and blackout dates may apply. The winner of a Travel Prize must travel as and when designated by
Sponsor or the Prize may be forfeited, and an alternate winner selected at random. Airline tickets are

reserves the right to structure travel route and select hotels in their sole and absolute discretion.
Transportation carrier and hotel regulations and conditions apply. A Travel Prize winner may be
required to provide a credit card at the time of hotel check-in. The round-trip air transportation
element for any Travel Prize begins and ends at the point of departure. If in the judgment of Sponsor

will be substituted for roundtrip air travel at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion and the difference
in value will not be awarded. Sponsor shall not be responsible for any cancellations, delays, diversions
or substitution or any act or omissions whatsoever by the air carriers, hotels, venue operators,
transportation companies, Prize providers or any other persons providing any Prize-related services
or accommodations. Sponsor is not liable for any missed Prize events, opportunities or expenses

tickets awarded as part of a Prize unless Sponsor consents in writing. In the event a Prize winner

Except with respect to the protection and enforcement of the intellectual property rights of the
Sponsor and its parent, subsidiaries and affiliates and their rights to seek and/or obtain injunctive or
equitable relief (“Non-Sweepstakes Dispute”), any claim, cause of action or proceeding arising out of
or relating to these Terms or any Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes Dispute”) will be resolved by arbitration.
Neither you nor Sponsor will be able to sue in court in connection with a Sweepstakes Dispute. All
Sweepstakes Disputes must be resolved through individual (non-class) arbitration. You indicate your
acceptance to these Terms, including this agreement to arbitrate, by entering or continuing to
participate in a Sweepstakes, or making a claim relating to a Sweepstakes after having the opportunity
to review these Terms.
You and Sponsor intend for this to be an agreement for arbitration that can be enforced under the
Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), 9 U.S.C.A. §§ 1–16. You and Sponsor waive any rights to maintain other
available resolution processes for Sweepstakes Disputes, such as a court action or administrative
proceeding, to settle disputes. You and Sponsor waive any right to a jury trial for Sweepstakes
Instead of suing in court, we each agree to settle Sweepstakes Disputes only by arbitration. The rules
in arbitration are different. There is no judge or jury, and review is limited, but an arbitrator can award
the same damages and relief and must honor the same limitations stated in the agreement as a court
would. Any Sweepstakes Dispute shall be determined by arbitration in Oregon before one
The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules and
Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/ as of the time of
publication of these Terms. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a
court of appropriate jurisdiction. If for any reason, JAMS cannot or will not provide this arbitration,
the parties may ask any court of competent jurisdiction to select an arbitrator from a list provided by
the parties. To the extent a party commences any action with includes both Sweepstakes Disputes
and Non-Sweepstakes Disputes, consideration of the Non- Sweepstakes Disputes shall be stayed until
the Sweepstakes Disputes are fully arbitrated. Then, any Non-Sweepstakes Disputes will be
considered by any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree that you will not file a class action
against Sponsor and its affiliated companies or participate in a class action against Sponsor and its
affiliated companies, in any Sweepstakes Dispute.
You agree that you will not file or seek a class arbitration or participate in a class arbitration against
Sponsor and its affiliated companies, in any Sweepstakes Dispute.
The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly
situated. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from seeking action by federal, state, or
local government agencies. You and adidas also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small
claims court. If you demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the
costs of litigation, adidas will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required
for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being
prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the
compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems
