Official Sweepstakes Rules & Information
Effective Date: December 1st, 2020
The complete list of the official sweepstakes campaigns, including details, winners and important dates is available at http://www.sabadashapp.com/sweepstakes/contests.cfm.
HOW IT WORKS
Each campaign is a multi-purpose multipurpose effort. First, we (Sabadash) work with Beer By
Bike Brigade (BBBB), a U.S. 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity, which receives all,
or most, donations made through Sabadashs online platform (Platform) and
makes grants to charitable causes. In partnership with BBBB, our campaigns bring
together well-known companies who can serve as prize providers (Prize
Providers) and who allow the use of their logo and name on our Platform. The
prizes (Prizes) are ones that almost anybody (see restrictions below) can enter to
We use our Sabadash mobile app to manage all of our Campaigns, including the participation of Participants. This minimizes our expenses and allows Sabadash to put more funds back into the local community through BBBB and other channels.
Participants (You) in any sweepstakes sponsored by Sabadash, Inc. must be legal
residents of the United States. We currently exclude legal residents of Alaska,
Florida, Hawaii, New York, and Rhode Island from participating in sweepstakes that it is promoting. All participants must be 18 years or older, unless specified in the rules governing a future, specific sweepstakes.
All full or part-time employees of Sabadash, Inc., members of their households and immediate families (e.g. parents, spouses, domestic partners, siblings and children) are ineligible. Further, all board members and/or employees of Partner Charities and their households and immediate families are ineligible along with any employees of the sweepstakes Prize Partner and their households and immediate families.
From time to time, we may limit the frequency of how often an individual is eligible to win a prize within a defined time frame. Any individual who uses a bot, software, any other codes, other mechanical or technological methods for the purpose of entering into a sweepstakes in a manner that provides an advantage over individuals who enter manually, will be disqualified from the sweepstakes that they entered and all future sweepstakes and promotions, subject to Sabadashs sole discretion. Further, if anybody attempts to deliberately damage or undermine the legitimate operation of the sweepstakes/campaign they may be in violation of criminal and civil laws. If anybody deliberately attempts to damage or undermine the sweepstakes/campaign, we may seek damages from that person to the furthest extent of the law.
Consent & Agreement to Rule
By entering and participating in the sweepstakes, the Contestant (You) agree to
be fully and unconditionally bound by these Official Rules and any additional
rules published in conjunction with a specific sweepstakes. By entering the
sweepstakes, you warrant that you meet the eligibility requirements. Further, you
agree to accept the decisions of Sabadash, Inc., promoter of this sweepstakes, as
final and binding as it relates to the rules of this sweepstakes.
As a contestant in the sweepstakes, you waive any right to claim ambiguity with respect to these Official Rules or any additional rules published in conjunction with a specific, future sweepstakes. You also agree to waive all of your rights to bring any judicial claim or action against Sabadash, Inc., its Partner Charities or Prize Partners.
In lieu of a claim in front of a judge in court, you agree to settle any disputes with Sabadash, Inc., or its partner Charities or Prize Partners in relation to any sweepstakes promoted by Sabadash, Inc. through Arbitration; No Class Action.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
Entering and participating in the sweepstakes
constitutes your acceptance of this Arbitration provision.
As a condition of participation in a sweepstakes, each Contestant (you / your) and Sponsor (we / us) agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action (collectively, Claims) arising out of or connected with such Game (except for small claims court Claims, if applicable) shall be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), including the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, for full and final settlement of such Claim applying the Federal Arbitration Act and other federal arbitration laws. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE OR GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS CONTRACT. YOU AND WE ALSO AGREE THAT (A) ANY CLAIMS WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, MEMBER OF OTHERWISE ON BEHALF OF OTHERS IN ANY PURPOSED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING AND NOT THROUGH ANY CLASS ACTION, (B) IF A CLAIM PROCEEDS IN COURT ANYWAY, WE BOTH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL; AND (C) EITHER YOU OR WE MAY SEEK A COURT INJUNCTION REGARDING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT. ARBITRATION DOES NOT INVOLVE A JUDGE OR JURY. Although court review of an arbitration award may be limited, an arbitrator is empowered to award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive relief or statutory damages. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek temporary or emergency equitable relief to enforce its rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You may seek arbitration of a Claim by contacting our registered agent at: Sabadash, Inc. 712 Main Street, La Crosse, WI 54601. The arbitration may be conducted via telephone, written submissions or in person at a mutually agreed location. Payment of all filing, administration, arbitrator and/or mediator fees (Fees) will be governed by AAAs rules. The AAAs rules are available at: www.adr.org or call 800-778-7879 (toll-free) for instructions on how to obtain a copy. Unless the AAA arbitrator determines that your Claim was frivolous, we will (i) reimburse you for Fees paid by you, and (ii) will not seek reimbursement from you for our attorneys fees and costs associated with the arbitration. You and we further agree that any award and any judgment confirming it only applies to the arbitration in which it was awarded and cannot be used in any other proceeding except to enforce the award itself and any post-arbitration action seeking to enforce an arbitration award or action seeking equitable or injunctive relief shall be brought exclusively in the courts of the State of Wisconsin, or the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin. For any Claims that are not subject to arbitration, if any: (a) the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for proceedings involving Claims shall be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within the State of Wisconsin (the Forum), and the parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the Forum is not appropriate or convenient; (b) you and we waive any and all rights to trial by jury with respect to any Claims.

Sabadash, Inc., intends to operate each sweepstakes as fairly and equitably as
possible. We use a system so that entries are treated equally. Each free entry is
automatically assigned the equivalent value (worth) as the
chance to win when you donate the minimum required for each campaign, typically $10).

Sweepstakes Start and End, Dates and Times
The start and end date for each specific sweepstakes (known as campaign) will be listed at http://www.sabadashapp.com/sweepstakes/contests.cfm. Campaigns will end at a specific time on a specific date or when a maximum amount of donations has been reached. This period of time is called the campaign window. All entries must be received within 48 hours of the campaign window ending.
The winner of the sweepstakes/campaign will win the prize specified on the
campaign site and in the specific rules published in conjunction with the specific
campaign. The approximate retail value of the prize will also be displayed on the
campaign site or in the specific campaign rules. The prize is nontransferable and cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash unless allowed by the rules governing a specific sweepstakes.
Sabadash, Inc. reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value.

you acknowledge that the value of the Prize may be considered taxable income in
some jurisdictions. If expressly indicated on the campaign site, in addition to the
Prize, the Winner will receive a single cash payment in the form of a gift card or
corporate check which is intended to assist with any federal, state, or other tax
obligations related to the Prize (the Tax Gross-Up Payment). The Tax Gross-Up
Payment, if applicable, may not be sufficient to cover the Winners entire tax
liability related to winning the Prize. The Winner is otherwise solely responsible
for the payment of taxes to the relevant taxing authorities for all federal, state and
local income taxes and any other taxes associated with the Prize and the related
Tax Gross-Up Payment. Sponsor will comply with all tax reporting requirements.

Winner Selection & Notification
Within 10 business days of the close of the campaign window (or as specified in the specific sweepstakes/campaign rules on the campaign site) we will use a random automated drawing process to select a Potential Winner/Winners from among all eligible entries received. The drawing and awarding of the Prize will be conducted by us, the Sponsor. The Potential Winner will be notified by email and/or telephone. If the Potential Winner does not respond to the email and/or voicemail from us within 72 hours, that Potential Winner may be disqualified, and an alternate potential winner may be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries and notified in the same manner as the original Potential Winner. We will need to confirm the identity of the Potential Winner and that confirmation will be undertaken by us, through whatever means we shall deem appropriate. The confirmation process may include a background check, to ensure that the Potential Winner meets the legal standards required. The Potential Winner agrees to provide us with the information we request, including but not limited to, full legal name, date of birth and address. Upon a positive outcome of the confirmation process we will notify the Potential Winner via email. The Potential Winner must respond within the time frame designated in the email. If the Potential Winner does not respond we may move on to another randomly selected Potential Winner. We shall have no liability for the Potential Winners failure to receive notices due to spam, junk email or other security settings or if the Potential Winner provides incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. If the Potential Winner rejects the Prize, or is otherwise ineligible to receive the Prize, or fails to comply with these Official Rules, another Potential Winner will be chosen in a subsequent random drawing. If for any reason a Winner chooses to reject any portion of any prize, Sponsor shall have no obligation to award the rejected or unclaimed portion of any Prize to an alternate winner.
