per survey.  There may be an opportunity while taking each survey for you to
receive one (1) additional Sweepstakes entry. During either Timberland survey,
you may be asked if you would like to complete a follow-up survey; the
follow-up survey invitation will be sent by email approximately one (1) month
following your completion of the initial survey.  If you complete the follow-up
survey during the Promotion Period, you will receive one (1) additional
Sweepstakes entry for each survey.  


b. Mail-in Alternate Method
of Entry: To
enter without making a purchase, hand print your name, address, day and evening
phone numbers, email address, and date of birth on a 3″ x 5″ piece of
paper as well as at least three sentences that describe (a)
what you perceive as the best and worst attributes of Timberland products, (b) why
you have purchased them in the past, and (c) if you would consider purchasing
them in the future. Mail your entry in an envelope with proper postage to
“Timberland PRO 2022 Sweepstakes,” c/o Equation Research, LLC, P.O. Box 1747,
Sun City, AZ 85372, U.S.A. You will receive one (1) entry into the
Sweepstakes. Limit: One (1) entry per envelope. All mail-in entries must be
handwritten and must be postmarked by December 31, 2022 and received by January
6, 2023.  All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and none will be
acknowledged or returned.  Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to
be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late,
incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due
entries, which will be disqualified.


Limit: You may receive seven (7)
Sweepstakes entries during the Promotion Period through any method, or combination
of methods, of entry.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to
share the same email address.  Any attempt by any
entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using
multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or
any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified.
Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited
and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to
any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to
register will be deemed to be the entrant.  The “authorized account holder” is
the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider,
online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email
addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.  The potential
winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.


5. Grand Prize Drawing: Administrator
is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to
the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the
potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to
the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes
winner from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around
January 24, 2023. The potential winners will be notified by email or phone. The
potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her
state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of
Compliance, Liability Waiver and, where not prohibited, a Publicity Release (“Declaration”)
which must be received by Administrator within seven (7) days of the date
notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim the prize. If the
potential winner is from Canada, he/she will be required to answer a
time-limited skill testing question correctly in order to receive the prize and
complete an IRS Form W8-Ben. If a potential winner of any prize cannot
be contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested
information within the required time period (if applicable), does not answer
the skill-testing question correctly (if applicable), or the prize is returned
as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is
contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that the
potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to
an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.
Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will
remain un-awarded. Prize will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the
conclusion of the Sweepstakes.


6. Prize: ONE (1) GRAND
PRIZE: A $10,000 check. Approximate
Retail Value (“ARV”): $10,000 USD.


If the winner is not a resident of the
United States, Sponsor will deduct 30% of the value of the prize ($3,000 USD) and
remit it to the IRS (the United States tax agency) as required by law. Winner
will therefore only receive a check for $7,000 USD. Winner will receive a U.S
tax form 1042 from the Administrator reflecting the total value of the prize,
including the deducted amount, and the withholding amount submitted to the IRS
will be noted separately. If the winner is a U.S. resident, he/she will receive
a Form 1099 reporting the prize as income.


Prize is non-transferable
and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s
sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize for one of
equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for
any reason. Winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with
prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning the prize depend on the number of
eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. 


7. Release: By receipt of the prize, winner agrees
to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Equation, Administrator,
and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, and prize suppliers, and each of their respective parent companies
and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents
(collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of
action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to
or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt
or use or misuse of any prize.

8. Publicity: Except where
prohibited, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes the winner’s consent to
Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph,
voice, opinions and/or hometown and state/province for promotional purposes in
any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.

9. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to
cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud,
technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or
proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, or any event or cause beyond Sponsor’s
control (e.g. events such as natural calamities, national emergencies, wide
spread illnesses, declarations of war, acts of God, acts of terrorism)
interferes with any aspect of the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to
fulfillment of the prize(s), as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In
such event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to modify the prizes
offered herein and/or hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received
up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. Sponsor
reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it
finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes
or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other
promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any
person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes
may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be
made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to
the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of
these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.


10. Limitations of Liability: The
Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate
information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the
equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2)
technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to
malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network
hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the
entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur
in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (5) late,
lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury or damage to
persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in
part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or
misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to
have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s
sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more
than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.  In the event that
production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more
than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to
be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the
stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded,
eligible prize claims.

11. Disputes: Except where prohibited,
entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action
arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to
any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Michigan or the appropriate Michigan State Court
located in Oakland County, Michigan; (2) any and all claims, judgments and
awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs
associated with entering this Sweepstakes, but in no event attorneys’
fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to
obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect,
punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other
than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to
have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.  All issues and questions
concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of
these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in
connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance
with, the laws of the State of Michigan without giving effect to
any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Michigan or
any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any
jurisdiction other than the State of Michigan.

12. Entrant’s Personal Information: Information collected from entrants
