Official rules

LEGAL NOTICES: 

 EccoBauer.com allows almost anybody (see restrictions below), to enter a sweepstakes and have an equal chance of winning. This is pretty cool and also legitimate. There are many laws in place that protect our donors and ensure that everything is fair. Please enjoy these long, detailed, official rules, so that you have all the information you need, before entering any of the sweepstakes or campaigns advertised on our website.

  • A few things to note:
  • Certain parts of these rules are required by different laws. We use BIG, SCARY, BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS for those sections, to make sure you notice them.
  • These official rules apply to every sweepstakes campaign we run—but sometimes we also have extra information or requirements. We in those cases, publish the extra rules on the campaign page. The extra rules usually apply in addition to the current rules, but sometimes these current rules need adjustment for the particular campaign. We will tell you about these changes on the campaign page.

    You can always enter any campaign for free 

HOW TO ENTER A SWEEPSTAKES. 

EccoBauer offers different ways to enter a sweepstakes, and it is really easy to use any of the methods of entry.

WHO CAN ENTER A CAMPAIGN?

We love everybody; however, some countries do not love sweepstakes. We thus must restrict entries from these countries. This means that most campaigns are open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, and most countries around the world, but they are void in all countries on the United States list of embargoed countries, as well as in countries where local laws prohibit entry into sweepstakes. We also may have to limit certain campaigns to specific countries. We, if we do so, publish that in special rules on the campaign page.

Full-time and part-time employees of EccoBauer, and members of their household and immediate families (i. e., parents, spouses, domestic partners, siblings, and children), are not eligible to enter, in order to keep things fair. Any individual that uses a bot, software, or any other codes, instructions or third-party software for the purpose of automatically entering into a sweepstakes  or in any way that provides an unfair advantage over individuals that enter manually, will be disqualified from the sweepstakes they entered and will be banned from future sweepstakes, at the sole discretion of EccoBauer.

Sometimes your country may allow you to enter a sweepstakes, but not allow you to receive a certain Prize. It is your responsibility to review any specific restrictions before claiming the given Prize or making a donation.

Campaigns, in all cases, are void where prohibited by law.

WHEN CAN I ENTER A CAMPAIGN? 

The start and end date for each campaign is listed on the campaign page. We usually start campaigns at 12:00:01 A.M. Pacific Time (“PT”) and end at 11:59:59 P.M. PT on the days specified, unless specified otherwise. We call this time period the “Campaign Window”.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I WON?

We will within 10 business days of the close of the campaign, use an automated random drawing process to draw a potential winner(s) for the given campaign. A confirmation process, which may include a background check, will then take place to ensure the potential winner corresponds with the required legal standards. The winner and if applicable, their guest(s), agree to cooperate fully with EccoBauer in the conducting of any background check(s) by EccoBauer, which includes providing information requested by EccoBauer, including but not limited to, full legal names and addresses. EccoBauer may disqualify the given winner and select a new randomly drawn potential winner. An EccoBauer representative will notify the potential winner by email and/or phone, pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process. The potential winner, before being confirmed as the winner, must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or EccoBauer may move on to select another randomly drawn potential winner. The potential winner, may be required by EccoBauer, to confirm their eligibility. The potential winner and guest(s), after confirmation of eligibility, must within the time period specified by EccoBauer, complete and return all required documents. You will forfeit the Prize, if you do not complete and return all required documents within the time frame specified by EccoBauer and EccoBauer will move on to select another randomly drawn potential winner.

WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS OR CONDITIONS ON A PRIZE?

Retail value of the given Prize can vary due to taxes, transport cost etc.

WINNER PROMOTION 

You by accepting the Prize, agree that we can use your name, address (city and state), photograph, voice and/or other likeness and Prize information, to tell everyone how awesome the Prize was. This means we can include you in the advertising, as well as trade and promotional materials of EccoBauer, in any form of media (including media that is not yet known), and that we can do so, without any additional compensation. This only applies unless otherwise prohibited by law.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We, as well as our Charities and Prize Providers, want to get to know you! We will therefore collect some information about you, when you enter a sweepstakes.
