Here's a pretty photo for you to look at, because it's about to get RIL boring... unless you're into legal jargon.


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:  Hank & Ax, LLC, a Nebraska limited liability company with its principal place of business located at 3667 N 129th St,  Omaha, NE 68164. (“Hank & Ax”, or sometimes “we” or “us”), will hold a series of small giveaway promotions.  Each promotion will involve a specific prompt, a specific prize or prizes, and a specific entry period, each of which will be identified when the particular promotion is announced.  These Rules are generally applicable to all of the promotions, unless the terms of a particular promotion state otherwise.  By participating in any promotion, you unconditionally accept and agree to abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Hank & Ax, which shall be final and binding in all respects.  Hank & Ax reserves the right to modify or terminate any promotion if conditions arise that demand it.
 

ELIGIBILITY: Employees of Hank & Ax or its affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies are ineligible to enter a promotion or win any prize in connection with any promotion.  Each promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state, municipal, and local laws and regulations and is void outside the U.S. and where prohibited.
 

HOW TO ENTER: You may submit an entry for each promotion in accordance with the promotion rules, stated at the time of the promotion announcement.   For each promotion you enter, you must complete the tasks identified in that promotion within the time allotted by the rules for that particular promotion.  For purposes of these Rules and the rules of any promotion, each day will begin at 12:00 a.m. CST and will end at 11:59 p.m. CST.  All entries must be actually received no later than the deadline provided in the particular promotion to be eligible.
 

*THIS HERE IS IMPORTANT!*

By entering a promotion, you consent to give Hank & Ax 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.  Entries become the property of Hank & Ax and will not be returned.  Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter entries must be publicly viewable on the applicable social media platform and must comply with that platform’s Terms of Use and Community Guidelines, in addition to these Official Rules, in order to be eligible and to qualify as an entry in a promotion.  To enter a promotion, you must satisfy the submission requirements stated in that promotion.  Entries must be the entrant’s original work and must not constitute infringement of the copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property rights of third parties. Hank & Ax reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to reject, disqualify and/or remove any submission that violates these Official Rules without any notification or warning.  By entering a promotion, entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Hank & Ax judges, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to a promotion.
 

PRIZES AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES: The prizes available for each promotion and their approximate retail values will be identified in the promotion for that promotion.  No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be available.
 

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  The winner(s) of each promotion will be determined at a time to be stated in each promotion.  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 promotion, but we will have no obligation to do so.  Hank & Ax will have no liability for any winner notification that the winner does not receive for any reason. Odds of winning any particular promotion will depend on the number of eligible entries received during that promotion period.  Hank & Ax has no way of knowing or accurately estimating the number of such entries.
 

Promotions will be in different formats, and the winners will be determined as follows (unless otherwise stated in the rules for a particular promotion):
 

“First” contests: these contests, such as “first person to send us a snap of” a particular subject, will be won by the first eligible person to complete the task.  We will determine whether you have completed the task by using our best judgment, and we will determine who was first by the time of our receipt.  If a promotion calls for more than one winner, we’ll use the same method to pick the first two, or five, or whatever the number is.
 

“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. 

DISPUTES:  By entering a promotion, each entrant agrees that: (a) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with a promotion or any prize(s) awarded, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action; (b) any and all claims, judgments, and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering a promotion, but in no event will attorneys’ fees be awarded or recoverable; and (c) under no circumstances will any entrant be permitted to obtain any award for, and each entrant hereby knowingly and expressly waives all rights to seek, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages and/or any other damages, other than actual out-of-pocket expenses, and/or any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.

PROMOTIONS ARE IN NO WAY SPONSORED, ENDORSED, OR ADMINISTERED BY, OR ASSOCIATED WITH, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, TWITTER, OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM. BY ENTERING, YOU ARE PROVIDING YOUR INFORMATION TO HANK & AX AND NOT TO ANY SUCH SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM.  Any and all questions, comments or complaints regarding a promotion must be directed solely to Hank & Ax.

 

There, that wasn't so bad, was it?
