(a) Internet: Visit Stellaartois.com/VacationYouSweeps (“Website”) and follow the
online instructions to complete and submit an online entry (“Entry”).
(b) QR Code: During the Contest Period, use your smart phone or other web-
enabled device with data plan to scan the Contest quick response (“QR”) code featured
on signs or promotional materials at participating stores with the QR reader application
already installed on your phone. You will be directed to
Stellaartois.com/VacationYouSweeps. Follow the online instruction to complete and
submit an online entry (also an “Entry”). Proof of scanning QR codes does not
constitute proof of completion or submission of an Entry.
For all Entries:
All Entries must be received and recorded during the Sweepstakes Period. No
other forms of Entry are valid. Limit one (1) Entry per person per Entry Period.
Automated Entries are prohibited and any use of automated devices will cause
disqualification. Entrants may not enter with multiple email addresses, nor use any other
device or artifice, to enter multiple times or as multiple entrants. Any entrant who
attempts to enter with multiple email addresses under multiple identities, or uses any
device or artifice to register multiple times, will be disqualified and forfeits all prizes won,
in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same
email address. Should multiple users of the same email account enter the
Sweepstakes and a dispute thereafter arise regarding the identity of the entrant, the
authorized account holder of said email account at the time of entry will be considered
an entrant, and must comply with these Official Rules. The authorized account
subscriber is the natural person who is assigned the email address by the ISP or other
organization responsible for assigning email addresses. Potential winner may be
required to show proof of being the authorized account subscriber.
If entering with a mobile phone or other web-enabled device and using your
wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your wireless carrier may apply.
Check with your wireless service provider for details on these and any other applicable
charges. Entrants are solely responsible for any such wireless charges.
4. SWEEPSTAKES DRAWING:
Potential winners will be selected in a random drawing to be held on or about
each Drawing Date as defined in Rule #2 by Administrator, whose decisions are final in
all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend upon the number of
eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period. Non-winning Entries do not
carry forward to subsequent Entry Period drawings. Limit one (1) prize per person.
5. WINNER NOTIFICATION:
All prizes will be awarded. Potential winners will be notified via email or phone
and will be required to respond to the notification within forty-eight (48) hours indicating
whether he/she can accept the prize. If a potential winner does not respond to the
notification within the forty-eight (48) hour time period, prize will be forfeited and an
alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. Any alternate potential winner
selected will also be required to respond to the notification within the time frame stated
above.
Potential winners may be required to complete, sign and return an affidavit of
eligibility and liability and, unless prohibited by law, publicity release within forty-eight
(48) hours of prize acceptance. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with
the terms of these Official Rules, including verification that the winner is twenty-one (21)
years of age or older, the potential winner will be declared an official winner of the
Sweepstakes. If Sponsor cannot verify that the potential winner is twenty-one (21) years
of age or older prior to winner notification, then the potential winner will be disqualified
and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected.
In the event of noncompliance within any stated time period, the prize will be
forfeited and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. Any alternate
potential winner selected will also be required to adhere to the time periods described
herein. Any prize notification or prize returned to the Sponsor or its agencies as
undeliverable will result in disqualification and the awarding of that prize to an alternate
potential winner.
Neither Sponsor nor Administrator are responsible for suspended or discontinued
Internet, wireless, or land-line phone service or a change in an entrant’s email, phone
number or mailing address which may result in a potential winner not receiving initial
prize notification or his/her prize information.
6. PRIZE DETAILS:
Grand Prize (225 total; 15 per Entry Period; see Rule #2; see Rule #4): Each
winner will receive one (1) $100.00 pre-paid card that can be used to purchase a
“Staycation” in your hometown. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) is $100.00.
For all prizes:
Terms and conditions received with pre-paid card apply. If winner cannot accept
the prize as specified by Sponsor, prize will be forfeited and will be awarded to an
alternate winner. Total ARV of all prizes is $22,500.00. Any difference between stated
value and actual value will not be awarded.
Prizes are non-transferable and no cash equivalent or substitution of prize is
offered, except at the sole discretion of Sponsor. If a prize, or any portion thereof,
cannot be awarded for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize with
another prize of equal or greater value. Prize winners will be solely responsible for all
federal, state and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with the
prizes they receive, regardless of whether it, in whole or in part, is used.
If Sponsor so elects, potential winner may be required to submit to a confidential
background check. Such background check may include (but is not limited to)
investigation of criminal, sexual offenses, or other arrest or conviction record, and any
other factor deemed relevant by the Sponsor to help ensure that potential winner will not
bring the Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect
unfavorably on the Sponsor. If requested, potential winner agrees to sign waiver forms
authorizing the release of personal and background information. In the event of
noncompliance, to be determined at the sole discretion of Sponsor, prize will be
forfeited and will be awarded to an alternate winner.

10. DISPUTE RESOLUTION:
You agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise
relating in any way to or arising out of the Sweepstakes or the Official Rules will be
resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution section.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL
HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND WE HAVE AGAINST
EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.
You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with Administrator or
Sponsor arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to the Sweepstakes or the
Official Rules, you will send a written notice to the Administrator (“Demand”). You agree
that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to
disagreements that may have arisen before you accepted these Official Rules. You
must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal
Department, Merkle Inc., 3000 Town Center, Suite 2100, Southfield, MI 48075. You
agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding
arbitration, until 10 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated
in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within 10 business days after it is
received, and you intend on taking legal action, you agree that you will file a demand for
arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). THIS
ARBITRATION PROVISION LIMITS THE ABILITY OF YOU, ADMINISTRATOR, AND
SPONSOR TO LITIGATE CLAIMS IN COURT AND YOU, ADMINISTRATOR, AND
SPONSOR EACH AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY
TRIAL OR A STATE OR FEDERAL JUDGE. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT FILE
ANY LAWSUIT AGAINST ADMINISTRATOR OR SPONSOR IN ANY STATE OR
FEDERAL COURT. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must effect
proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may
not be sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to
conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company.
The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules effective September 1,
2014 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this
Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive
jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal
Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the
interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT FILE A CLASS ACTION OR COLLECTIVE
ACTION AGAINST ADMINISTRATOR OR SPONSOR, AND THAT YOU WILL NOT
PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR COLLECTIVE ACTION AGAINST THEM.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT JOIN YOUR CLAIMS TO THOSE OF ANY
OTHER PERSON. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Official Rules, if this class
action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it
were never entered into, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed
without prejudice and may be refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do you,
Administrator, or Sponsor agree to class or collective procedures in arbitration or the
joinder of claims in arbitration. Administrator and Sponsor agree that we will submit all
disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and
enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the Entrant,
Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, or any claim or dispute
that has arisen or may arise between you, Administrator and Sponsor, shall be
governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Missouri
without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. The place of arbitration
shall be St. Louis, Missouri.
