These are the rules of Dyetology Giveaways and or Contests.
Dyetology Giveaway OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE, DONATION OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO WIN. A PURCHASE, DONATION OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
CONTEST DESCRIPTION: Dyetology, LLC, an Ohio limited liability company with its principal place of business located in Columbus, Ohio will hold a series of small giveaway promotions, which we call “Giveaways.” Each Giveaway will involve a specific prompt, a specific prize or prizes, and a specific entry period, each of which will be identified when the particular Giveaway is announced. These Rules are generally applicable to all of the Giveaways unless the terms of a particular Giveaway state otherwise. By participating in any Giveaway , you unconditionally accept and agree to abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Dyetology, which shall be final and binding in all respects. Dyetology reserves the right to modify or terminate any Giveaway if conditions arise that demand it.
ELIGIBILITY: Legal residents of the U.S. as well as International residents who have reached the age of majority in their state/country of residence at the time of entry into a Giveaway, are eligible to enter a Giveaway. Employees of Dyetology or its distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies are ineligible to enter a Giveaway or win any prize in connection with any Giveaway. Brand Reps are eligible to enter. Each Giveaway is subject to all applicable federal, state, municipal, and local laws and regulations.
HOW TO ENTER: You may submit an entry for each Giveaway as many times as you'd like. For each Giveaway you enter, you must complete the tasks identified in that Giveaway within the time allotted by the rules for that particular Giveaway. For purposes of these Rules and the rules of any Giveaway, each day will begin at 6:00 a.m. EST and will end at 8 p.m. EST. All entries must be actually received no later than the deadline provided in the particular Giveaway to be eligible. The dyetology.com database clock will be the official time keeper for all Giveaways/Contests.
By entering a Giveaway, you consent to give Dyetology a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such entry in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, in perpetuity, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed, for any purpose whatsoever, including for promotional, advertising, or marketing purposes.
PRIZES AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES: The prizes available for each Giveaway and their approximate retail values will be identified in the promotion for that Giveaway. No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be available, but Dyetology retains the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value or, at Dyetology’s election, the cash value of the applicable prize if the identified prize is unavailable for any reason.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: The winner(s) of each Giveaway will be determined at a time to be stated in each Giveaway. We will attempt to contact each prize winner using the contact information provided by the winning entrant at the time of entry. If the selected entrant cannot be reached or does not claim his or her prize, we may award that prize to another entrant chosen from the remaining eligible entries using the criteria to the particular Giveaway, but we will have no obligation to do so. Dyetology will have no liability for any winner notification that the winner does not receive for any reason. If any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, if any entrant rejects his/her prize, or in the event of noncompliance with these rules, that prize will be forfeited without compensation. Odds of winning any particular Giveaway will depend on the number of eligible entries received during that Giveaway period. Dyetology has no way of knowing or accurately estimating the number of such entries.
Giveaway will be in different formats, and the winners will be determined as follows (unless otherwise stated in the rules for a particular Giveaway ):
“Random” or “a chance to win” contests: these contests say we’ll pick a random winner from those who do a certain task, or ask you to do a task for “a chance to win,” or you “could win.” We will pick from eligible entrants who complete the task within the time listed in the particular contest. We will use some appropriate way of making sure our pick is random. If we get an eligible entry, someone will win.
“Favorite” or “best” contests: these contests ask participants to submit something (such as a photo or a comment) and we’ll pick our favorite or we’ll pick the “best” of the timely entries submitted by eligible participants. The decision will by its nature be subjective, but we will choose the one (or ones) that we, in our good faith subjective judgment, think is the best, or is our favorite.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Prize winners will be solely responsible for any applicable federal, state, municipal and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize awarded. We will pay for shipping, but any other expenses not specifically stated as being included are excluded and are the responsibility of the winner. Prizes will be shipped no later than 60 calendar days after the winner of the particular Giveaway has been chosen. We will not be liable for loss or damage of prizes in shipping after they have left our possession.
