Talegate Giveaway Rules

Updated 2017




All Talegate Giveaways for Registered Users ("Giveaways") are open only to individual legal residents of the fifty (50) states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada (excluding residents of Quebec), who are registered users of the Talegate platform and who are age 13 or older as of the date of each Giveaway. Employees, officers, directors, members, and trustees of Honeycommb ("Sponsor"), and their respective parents, affiliated and subsidiary companies, advertising and promotional agencies, web masters and web suppliers, hosts and developers of the Talegate platform/application, and persons engaged in the development of materials related to the Giveaways and/or the implementation of the Giveaways, and members of the immediate family (parents, siblings, children and spouse, wherever they reside) or same household members (whether or not related) of such employees, officers, directors, members and trustees are not eligible to win a prize. Professional Football players who are verified users of Talegate are not eligible to win a prize in these Giveaways. Groups, clubs, organizations, commercial entities, and businesses are not eligible to win a prize. By posting a photo, comment, video or otherwise interacting with the Talegate platform and/or application, or otherwise participating in any of the Giveaways, you agree to these Official Rules and to all decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Giveaways are void in Quebec and where prohibited.


Each Giveaway begins and ends at the times and dates stated in the posts on the Talegate platform/application containing the Giveaway offer (each such period a "Giveaway Period"). Sometimes the Giveaway Period may consist of only a single day. Other times, the Giveaway Period may last for a week, or longer period. The Giveaways may run through the end of calendar year 2017; however, Sponsor is not obligated to offer Giveaways through December 31, 2017.


No purchase necessary to enter or win. At the beginning of each Giveaway Period, Sponsor will add a post, or a series of posts, to the Talegate platform/application outlining the parameters for the Giveaway. Registered users may be asked to post photos, make comments, post videos, or take other actions on the Talegate platform. Or, Giveaways may involve receiving, for example, the most "fist bumps" for a post. Participation on the Talegate platform constitutes entry into the Giveaways. Participants do not need to take any additional actions to enter the Giveaways. Sponsor will only consider activities occurring during the designated Giveaway Period when determining the winner for a Giveaway. Activities generated by a script, macro, or other automated means will be disqualified.

Winner Selection and Notification

Within five (5) business days following the close of each Giveaway Period, Sponsor will select the stated number of potential winners from among all eligible activities during the applicable Giveaway Period. All winner selections are in the sole discretion of Sponsor. Please keep in mind that not all users of the Talegate platform/application are eligible for prizes in these Giveaways, so the winner may not always be the user with the absolute highest number of "fist bumps," for example, if the user with the highest number of "fist bumps" during a particular Giveaway Period is not eligible to participate in these Giveaways. Sponsor will notify potential winners, at its discretion, via e-mail at the e-mail address associated with the Talegate platform registration, via text message if a potential winner has provided a mobile number with permissions to receive texts, or via direct notification through the Talegate application within three (3) business days following selection. Participants are solely responsible for checking their e-mail inboxes, Talegate notifications and text messages to see if they are potential winners. No additional notifications will be provided. Sponsor is not responsible for e-mail notifications that may end up in a potential winner's spam filter. If a potential winner is a resident of Canada, he or she must first correctly answer a time limited arithmetic skill testing question, without aid or assistance, before being confirmed as the winner. Each potential winner must respond to the notification via e-mail to within the time stated in the notification (typically three (3) business days) in order to confirm the prize. Potential winners must also sign and return within the time designated (typically ten (10) days) a declaration of eligibility and liability/publicity release, where legal, in order to claim the prize. If a potential winner is a minor in his or her state or province of residence, then a parent or guardian must sign on his or her behalf. If a potential winner does not send the e-mail response to the notification, or if a potential winner (or a parent or guardian) does not sign and return the declaration and release form within the time designated, or if a Canadian potential winner fails to correctly answer the arithmetic skill testing question in the manner prescribed, or if a potential winner is discovered to be not in compliance with these Official Rules or is otherwise ineligible, then that potential winner will be disqualified and the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected and notified according to the procedure in these Rules.


Information about the number, nature and value of the prizes will be set forth in the initial post(s) about each Giveaway, and will vary from Giveaway to Giveaway. Odds of winning a prize will depend on the number of eligible activities performed by eligible registered users during the applicable Giveaway Period and how closely the participant's activity aligns with the theme or criteria for the Giveaway, as determined in Sponsor's sole discretion. Prizes may consist primarily of Football-related merchandise and memorabilia, including but not limited to Football jerseys, Football trading cards, autographed items, and the like. The approximate retail values, brands, sizes, colors, autographs, and other prize details are in the sole discretion of Sponsor, are subject to availability, and may vary widely from Giveaway to Giveaway. No cash in lieu of prize and no substitution of prize is allowed, except in Sponsor's sole discretion. Prizes are non-transferable prior to award. Any local, state, or federal taxes associated with the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event any prize value exceeds $600, Sponsor will issue an IRS 1099 form in the amount of the total prize value for winners who are U.S. residents. Limit one prize per registered user per 30-day period and limit two (2) prizes per registered user among all Giveaways in 2017. If as of the date of selection for a particular Giveaway a registered user had previously won a prize in the Giveaways during the last 30 days, that registered user would not be eligible to win a prize and Sponsor will select and notify an alternate winner for that Giveaway. Once a registered user has won two (2) prizes in the Giveaways during 2017, that user is no longer eligible to receive prizes for the remainder of the 2017 Giveaways. Prizes will be shipped to the winners within six to eight weeks following confirmation. Returned prizes will not be awarded. In the event Sponsor determines that none of the activities of registered users on the Talegate platform/application during a particular Giveaway Period meet the stated criteria for that Giveaway, then Sponsor reserves the right not to select a winner and award a prize for that Giveaway, in its sole discretion. Names of the winners will be posted on the Talegate platform, or request a winners' list by sending an e-mail by 11:59:59 p.m. PT on January 31, 2018, with the subject line "Talegate Public Giveaways 2017 Winners' List" to digital@honeycommb. Allow 4-6 weeks thereafter for delivery of Winners’ List via e-mail.
