WELEDA’S NOVEMBER INFLUENCER BUNDLE GIVEAWAY OVERVIEW:

Weleda, Inc., located at 1 Bridge St., Suite 42, Irvington, New York 10533 (“Weleda” or “Sponsor”) is the sole sponsor of four (4) November product giveaway sweepstakes (each, a “Giveaway”), each of which is governed by the rules and conditions contained herein (the “Official Rules”). Each Giveaway will be run by a Weleda-affiliated social media influencer (each, an “Influencer Partner”) and Weleda will provide the applicable product bundle prize (each bundle, a “Prize”). Instagram is not affiliated with Weleda or a sponsor of these Giveaways.

 

ELIGIBILITY:

Each Giveaway is only open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 years of age or older at time of entry. By participating in a Giveaway, each entrant (a “Participant”) fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of each applicable Influencer Partner, which are final and binding in all matters related to the applicable Giveaway. Eligibility for the relevant Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. EACH GIVEAWAY IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW and is subject to applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Employees of Weleda, its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries (and members of their immediate family and/or those living in the same household of each such party mentioned above) are not eligible to participate.

 

TIMING:

Each Giveaway begins when the applicable Influencer Partner makes their initial social media post (the “Initial Post”) announcing the Giveaway being run by them, and ends at 12 A.M. Eastern Time on the seventh day following the applicable Initial Post (the “Termination Date”, and the entire period, the “Giveaway Duration”).

 

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

During the applicable Giveaway Duration, eligible individuals may enter for a chance to win a Prize by commenting on an Influencer Partner’s Initial Post, according to the instructions and guidelines contained in such Initial Post. Chances or odds of winning are based on the total number of Participants for each Giveaway. No purchase is necessary to enter or win and purchase and payment of any kind will not increase a Participant’s chances of winning any Giveaway.

 

ENTRIES:

Limit one (1) entry per person for each Giveaway. Multiple entries from the same person will be disqualified. Entries become the property of Weleda and will not be returned. Proof of submission does not constitute proof of receipt. If applicable, inaccurate, lost, late, misdirected or incomplete entry or entries that have been tampered with will be disqualified. Online entrants must have a valid Instagram account and it is entrant's responsibility to update the applicable Influencer Partner of any change of account information. If there is a dispute as to the identity of an online entrant, the Prize will be awarded to the authorized account holder of the Instagram account. The "authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person to whom the Instagram account is assigned.

 

WINNER SELECTION:

There will be one (1) winner (each, a “Winner”) for each of the four (4) Giveaways (for a total of four (4) winners).  Each winner will be chosen from all entries received for that Giveaway, and such Winner will be selected by the applicable Influencer Partner within two weeks of the end of the applicable Giveaway Duration. Each Influencer Partner will contact and notify the applicable winner by sending an Instagram Direct Message to the Instagram account which submitted an entry. In the event the winner doesn't respond to the notification or does not accept the Prize within seven (5) business days of notification, the Prize will be deemed forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected. In the event that any one or more potential winner fails to respond as stated above, declines the Prize, or fails to provide signed affidavits or releases (if necessary), such winner will be deemed to forfeit the Prize and the Influencer Partner will select an alternate winner from the remaining eligible Participants. However, the Influencer Partner will use a reasonable number of attempts, in his/her/their sole discretion, to award the Prize to another alternate but if it is unable to do so, the Prize will be finally forfeited and Weleda shall have no further liability in connection with the applicable Giveaway.

PRIVACY:

By entering the Giveaway, each Participant acknowledges that they will be providing such Participant’s personal information, including, but not limited to, Participant’s first/last name, likeness, social media handle, email address, or other identifying information (“Personal Information”). Personal information collected from Participants are subject to the Weleda’s Privacy Policy, which can be found at https://www.weleda.com/legal/privacy-policy.  Each Participant acknowledges that Weleda may use this Personal Information to send further information, samples or special offers it believes may be of interest to Participant, or other information or goods offered by its marketing partners. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Weleda will not send such additional information to Participants in the form of commercial electronic messages absent their express or implied consent as required by applicable law.

 

CHOICE OF LAW:

Each Giveaway shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. The remedy for any claim shall be limited to actual damages of the Prize, and in no event shall any party be entitled to recover punitive, exemplary, consequential, or incidental damages, including attorney’s fees or other such related costs of bringing a claim, or to rescind this agreement or seek injunctive or any other equitable relief. The failure or delay by Weleda in enforcing any particular clause, provision, or aspect of these Official Rules shall not impact the validity, enforceability, or effect of any other clause, provision, or aspect of these Official Rules.

 

DISPUTES:

Weleda is committed to resolving all disputes in a fair, effective and cost-efficient manner.  This Agreement provides that any dispute, controversy, or claim relating in any way to the Official Rules, any Giveaway, or the results of any Giveaway will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that Weleda and Participants may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.  ALL PARTICIPANTS AGREE THAT S/HE/THEY ARE WAIVING HER/HIS/THEIR RIGHTS TO BRING ANY POTENTIAL CLAIM RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE OFFICIAL RULES, ANY GIVEAWAY, OR THE RESULTS OF ANY GIVEAWAY IN COURT. The arbitration agreement, which is set forth below, has been designed to make arbitration as convenient and inexpensive as possible.

 

ARBITRATION AGREEMENT:

Weleda and Participants agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us before a single arbitrator. For purposes of this Arbitration Agreement, references to Weleda includes Weleda’s respective subsidiaries, parent companies, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors and assigns.  There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court, and must follow the Agreement and Official Rules as a court would. 

Weleda and each Participant agrees that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, Weleda and each Participant waives any right to a jury trial. 

A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send, by U.S. certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice") to the other party. A Notice to Weleda should be addressed to: Notice of Dispute, Weleda, Inc., 1 Bridge St., Suite 42, Irvington, NY 10533. The Notice should describe the claim or dispute and set forth the specific relief sought. If Weleda and the applicable Participant do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received by such Participant or Weleda, Weleda or such Participant may commence an arbitration proceeding.

The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its rules, including the AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules. Weleda and Participants may download or copy a form to initiate arbitration from the AAA website (http://adr.org) under the "Forms" tab. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.

The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based. Weleda and Participants agree that any awards or findings of fact or conclusions of law made in an arbitration of their dispute or claim are made only for the purposes of that arbitration and may not be used by any other person or entity in any later arbitration of any dispute or claim involving Weleda. Weleda and Participants agree that in any arbitration of a dispute or claim, neither Weleda nor Participants will rely for preclusive effect on any award or finding of fact or conclusion of law made in any other arbitration of any dispute or claim to which Weleda and Participants were a party. All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential, other than as part of an appeal to a court of competent jurisdiction.

 

OFFICIAL RULES AND LIST OF WINNER(S) REQUEST:

For the name(s) of the Winner(s) and/or a copy of the Official Rules, send a separate self-addressed, stamped envelope to Weleda, Inc., 1 Bridge St., Suite 42, Irvington, NY 10533 within two (2) days after the close of the applicable Giveaway Duration.
