typographical errors, or other issues that may affect the ability to locate or record a purported

send communications, or otherwise detect participation from or interact with potential Participants
who have Twitter account settings that make their updates, comments, posts or communications
private, protected, or otherwise limited, in which case any such purported Participant will be
disqualified and ineligible to receive a Prize. Normal Internet access and phone/usage charges
imposed by your online/phone service may apply. Each registration form must be manually key
stroked and manually entered by the individual Participant; automated and/or repetitive
submission of registration forms (including but not limited to entries made using any script, macro,

6) Winner Selection: Odds of winning a Prize in this Promotion depends on the number of
Participants. Fooji will be the official time keeping device for the Promotion and all decisions by
the Administrator regarding the timing of entries and the order in which they are received will be
final and binding. Subject to compliance with these Official Rules, on or about April 23, 2021,
Administrator will select 30 potential Prize winners in a random drawing from all eligible and
verified Participants who performed a qualifying Participation Action during the Promotion Entry
Period and filled out the required online form.
If you are chosen as a winner you will receive a winning notification from the Administrator via
email indicating that you are a potential prize winner and will be required to respond to the
notification within forty-eight (48) hours by completing, signing, and returning an affidavit of
eligibility and liability and, unless prohibited by law, publicity release to Sponsor or Sponsor’s
representative. Potential winners will be required to complete, sign and return a “Release of
Liability, Voluntary Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement” within forty-eight (48) hours of
prize notification. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official
Rules, including verification that the winner is eighteen (18) 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 eighteen (18) 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 (time and
conditions permitting). 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 (time and conditions permitting). Any alternate potential winner selected will
also be required to respond to the notification within the time frame stated above.
Participants selected as winners are limited to one (1) Prize per person, per delivery address
during the Promotion Entry Period. Prizes will be facilitated through a direct link posted via
@PaneraBread on Twitter. Local merchants that participate in the Fulfillment Partner network
5781433-2
may provide fulfillment and delivery of the Prize(s). Prize availability may vary and is not
guaranteed in all areas. Except as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, no substitution
of any Prize is offered, no transfer of Prize to a third party is permitted, and non-cash Prize(s)
may not be redeemed for cash value. AS SET FORTH ABOVE, YOU MUST RESIDE IN A
LOCATION SERVICED BY FULFILLMENT PARTNER IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO
PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROMOTION AND WIN A PRIZE. Prize(s) will be awarded and delivered
only to addresses within the United States (excluding Florida) that are serviced by Fulfillment
Partner. Verified Prize winner(s) will be solely responsible for all applicable federal, state and
local taxes on Prize(s) and may receive an IRS Form 1099 for the retail value of the Prize and
must provide Sponsor and/or Administrator with a valid social security number if requested for tax
reporting purposes. All expenses associated with the receipt and use of a Prize not specifically
mentioned herein are solely the responsibility of the winners. Sponsor and/or Administrator are
not responsible for any delay or cancellation of the Prize delivery due to unforeseen
circumstances, or those outside of Sponsor and/or Administrator’s control. If the fulfilling merchant
cancels the order for reasons out of Sponsor and/or Administrator’s control, the Prize will not be
delivered, and no additional compensation will be provided. Potential winners are subject to
verification and may be required to sign and return to Sponsor and Administrator for their receipt
within three (3) business days an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release with (where lawful) a
publicity release for receipt by Sponsor and Administrator by the due date indicated in the
notification message. If any required documents are not timely received by Sponsor and/or
Administrator, as applicable, or if any message or mail intended for a winner is returned as
undeliverable, then the applicable Prize may be forfeited.
7) General Rules / Limitations of Liability: By participating in the Promotion, Participants agree
to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and Administrator which
shall be final in all respects. Participation in the Promotion constitutes permission for the Sponsor,
Administrator, and its/their designees to use the Participant’s name, likeness, voice, biographical
information, prize information, quotes attributable to Participant, and any other elements of
Participant’s persona for purposes of advertising and trade, in any and all media now known or
otherwise developed without further compensation or review, including without limitation to

Fooji and its partners to re-target participants via email or the Fooji app, unless prohibited by law.
By clicking “Enter Now,” Participants authorize Fooji or their Fulfillment Partners to send an email
notifying Participants of delivery details for their order. In the event there is a discrepancy or
inconsistency between disclosures or other statements (in any and all media) contained in any
Promotion materials and the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall
prevail, govern and control. Sponsor, Administrator, and the other Promotion Entities assume no
responsibility or liability for (a) any incorrect or inaccurate entry information, or for any faulty,
failed, garbled or jumbled electronic data transmissions; (b) any unauthorized access to, or theft,
destruction or alteration of entries at any point in the operation of this Promotion; (c) any technical

Promotion. The Sponsor, Administrator, and other Promotion Entities are not responsible for the
failure of any order to be received for any reason or for any delay in the processing or failure to
process any order or entries. The Sponsor and/or Administrator reserve the right at its/their sole
discretion to disqualify any individual that tampers or attempts to tamper with the order process
or the operation of the Promotion; violates the Official Rules; is suspected of cheating, fraud, or
acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or
harass any other person. Any Participant who uses or is suspected of using cheating, fraudulent
means, unauthorized ordering methods, or otherwise attempts to participate multiple times, or
with multiple identities, Twitter accounts, and/or addresses will be disqualified. Any attempt by
any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal
and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor and/or Administrator reserves
the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The
Sponsor and/or Administrator’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that or any other provision. If, for any reason, the Promotion is not capable
of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized
intervention, fraud, technical failures, changes to the Twitter platform that are not acceptable to
Sponsor and/or Administrator, or any other causes beyond the control of the Sponsor and/or
Administrator which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper
conduct of the Promotion, then the Sponsor and/or Administrator reserves the right in its/their sole
discretion to cancel, modify, suspend or terminate the Promotion in whole or in part. In the event
Administrator experiences a technical failure during admission of the Promotion that causes the
Promotion to be suspended, Administrator shall select a winner(s) by random drawing from all
valid entries received up to the point of the technical failure. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT
PERMITTED BY LAW, AS A CONDITION OF ENTRY INTO THE PROMOTION, ALL
PARTICIPANTS AGREE TO RELEASE, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE
