ELIGIBILITY: The Givkwik, Inc. Sweepstakes (the "Sweepstakes") is open to legal residents of fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Employees of Givkwik, Inc. (“Sponsor”), and its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, franchisees, retailers and advertising and Sweepstakes agencies, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, children and each of their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and household members of each such employee, whether related or not, are not eligible to enter or win. The Sweepstakes is governed by U.S. law and is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

SWEEPSTAKES PERIOD: The Sweepstakes begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on November 8, 2016 and ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2016 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor’s computer will be understood as the official timekeeper of the Sweepstakes.

HOW TO ENTER: During the Sweepstakes Period, follow the instructions to fill out a form providing information necessary to register a new account with Givkwik or log-in as an existing account holder on the Givkwik website and provide or update user profile information, review profiles of registered nonprofit organizations, vote in a currently running campaign, engage in sponsor advertising, make payment to a user account, or define an allocation of funds to various nonprofit organizations to receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry. Sweepstakes entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on December 31, 2016 to be eligible. A limit of one (1) entry per person using only one (1) valid email address throughout the Sweepstakes Period. Entries received in excess of the above stated limitation from any person or email address will be void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means and entries by any means which subvert the entry process will be void. In the event of a dispute as to who submitted an entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to participate will be deemed to be the entrant and he/she must comply with these Official Rules. 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. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. If a dispute over the identity of an entrant cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected entry(ies) will be disqualified.

RANDOM Drawing: Potential winning users will be selected in random drawings from all eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period on or about December 1, 2016 by Sweepstakes Administrator. Odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period.

WINNER NOTIFICATION: Potential winners will be notified via e-mail and may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release within five (5) days of date of issuance. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, Sponsor is unable to contact a potential winner or a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, prize will be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner is at least eighteen (18) years of age but considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, prize may be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian who will be responsible for fulfilling all requirements imposed on winner set forth herein.

PRIZES: Each winner of the Sweepstakes will receive a credit in their Givkwik account. Each winner of the Sweepstakes may receive either a credit into the winner’s Givkwik account, or a t-shirt, book, electronic device, or some other good or merchandise from Sponsor or from participating clients and partners (if any), depending on availability and as we may determine. No substitution, assignment, cash equivalent or transfer of prize is permitted, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute prize with another prize of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion. All prize details are at the sole discretion of the Sponsor.
