ELIGIBILITY:  Only legal U.S. residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older and are an employee of a retail seller of Sponsor’s products are eligible to enter.  This Promotion is void where prohibited. 

HOW TO ENTER:  To enter a Daily Sweepstakes, during the applicable Daily Sweepstakes (1) take a picture of your adizero one display or of the shoe itself; (2) Tweet this picture and use the hashtags #adizero #IsHere (you can also include your location where the shoe is being sold, but it is not required) (the “Submission”); and (3) once you have Tweeted the Submission, you will receive a direct @ reply asking you to enter your information at the provided website ("The Website") for entry into the applicable Daily Sweepstakes.  The Submission must meet the following “Submission Requirements”: (i) the Submission must be the submitting entrant’s original, previously unpublished work and not include any individual other than the entrant or material owned or controlled by third parties (including without limitation, third party copyrighted material); (ii) the entrant must provide upon request all appropriate clearances, permissions, and releases for the Submission (in the event an entrant cannot provide all required releases, Sponsor reserves the right, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to disqualify the applicable Submission, or seek to secure the releases and clearances for Sponsor’s benefit, or allow the applicable Submission to remain in the Promotion); and (iii) the Submission must not include any content that is obscene, pornographic, libelous, or otherwise objectionable.  Any Submission that, in Sponsor's good faith judgment, violates the Submission Requirements will be disqualified.  Any Submission that is considered by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion to be obscene, pornographic, libelous, hate speech, or otherwise objectionable, in whole or in part, will be disqualified and will not be eligible for entry.  Limit one (1) entry per person per Daily Sweepstakes.

GENERAL CONDITIONS OF ENTRY:  The twitter.com database clock is the official timekeeper for the Promotion.  All entry information and materials become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.  Proof of entering information at the Website is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry.  Sponsor may engage a third party application provider (each, a “Third Party Application Provider”) to administer certain aspects of the Promotion, including without limitation, the online collection of entry information.  The Third Party Application Provider will provide your personally identifiable information to Sponsor, who except as set forth herein will use such information in accordance with its online privacy policy, located at http://taylormadegolf.com/privacy/privacy,en_US,pg.html and the Third Party Application Provider may also use your information for its own independent purposes in accordance with its own independent privacy practices.  Sponsor is not responsible for the storage or any use of your entry information by any Third Party Application Provider.  You should carefully review the privacy practices of any third party to determine their specific privacy policies.  Any communication or information transmitted to Sponsor by e-mail or otherwise is and will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.  You are providing your information to Sponsor and not to Twitter.

Entry must be made by the entrant in the manner described in these Official Rules.  Entries made by any other individual or any entity will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Promotion.  Tampering with the entry process, the Website, or the operation of the Promotion, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void.  In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.  Officers, directors, and employees of Sponsor and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, and advertising and promotion agencies (all such individuals and entities referred to collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Promotion.  The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Any entrant who incorporates any intellectual property owned by a third party into his or her Submission does so at his or her own risk.  Without in any way limiting, expanding, or amending the Terms of Use policy residing on Sponsor’s website, www.taylormadegolf.com, which Terms of Use policy shall remain in full force and effect, if Sponsor is duly notified that any element of an entrant’s Submission infringes upon the rights of another person and/or receives a legally valid request to remove the affected Submission from www.taylormadegolf.com or the Website because of such infringement, such Submission may be disqualified from the Promotion, as Sponsor may determine in its sole discretion.  Further, no entrant will be eligible to receive a prize unless Sponsor determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such entrant’s Submission has been or can be sufficiently cleared for legal purposes.

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES; INDEMNIFICATION:  Each person who enters this Promotion represents and warrants as follows: (i) the Submission does not include any individual other than the entrant and is the entrant’s own original, previously unpublished, and previously unproduced work; (ii) the Submission does not contain any computer virus (as applicable), is otherwise uncorrupted, is wholly original with entrant, and as of the date of submission, is not the subject of any actual or threatened litigation or claim; (iii) the Submission does not and will not violate or infringe upon the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party; and (iv) the Submission does not and will not violate any applicable laws, and is not and will not be defamatory or libelous.  Each entrant hereby agrees to indemnify and hold the Promotion Entities harmless from and against any and all third party claims, actions, or proceedings of any kind and from any and all damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses relating to or arising out of any breach or alleged breach of any of the warranties, representations, or agreements of entrant hereunder.

ENTRANT'S GRANT OF RIGHTS:  For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and legal sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, each entrant into the Promotion hereby irrevocably grants Sponsor, its successors and assigns, an exclusive, perpetual, royalty free, worldwide, transferrable license (but not the obligation) to reproduce, publicly perform, publically display, distribute, modify, and otherwise use the Submission for any reason whatsoever in any and all media, without further notice to, consent by, or payment to entrant.  Without in any way limiting the foregoing, Sponsor shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to modify and make derivative works of the Submission for any purpose which Sponsor deems necessary or desirable, and each entrant irrevocably waives any and all so-called moral rights they may have therein.  Sponsor shall have the right to freely sublicense its rights hereunder, in whole or in part, to any person or entity.  Sponsor shall retain the rights granted in each Submission even if the Submission is disqualified or fails to meet the Submission Requirements.  For clarity, Sponsor has the right, but not the obligation, to use any Submission.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  At the end of each Daily Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor (or its designee) will conduct a random drawing from all eligible entries received during the applicable Daily Sweepstakes Period to select ten (10) winners of the applicable Daily Sweepstakes.  Attempts to notify potential winners will be made using the email address provided at entry.  Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential prize winner does not respond within two (2) days of the first notification attempt, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential prize winner, such potential prize winner will forfeit the applicable prize and an alternate prize winner may be selected.  If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the applicable prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential prize winners in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed prize winner after such attempts have been made, if any, the applicable prize may go unawarded. 


Daily Sweepstakes Prizes:  The ten (10) winners of each Daily Sweepstakes will each receive one (1) pair of adizero one shoes (Approximate Retail Value: $130 (women) or $180 (men)).

Actual odds of winning each prize depend on the number of eligible entries receive during the applicable Daily Sweepstakes Period.

GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS:  No cash alternative or substitution of prizes will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute prizes of comparable value if any prize listed is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason.  Prizes will be awarded only if the potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules.  All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable and non-transferable.  Any prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television, and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Promotion materials are for illustrative purposes only.  All details and other restrictions of the prize(s) not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Each prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state, and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize.  ALL PRIZES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. 

FURTHER DOCUMENTATION AND PUBLICITY:  Potential winners may be required to execute a further Submission license or assignment (assigning all right, title, and interest in and to the Submission to Sponsor), Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, "Prize Claim Documents").  If any potential winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days of prize notification (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.  As part of the Prize Claim Documents, a potential winner may also be required to execute a further right of publicity release to use the winner’s name and/or image, including, but not limited to, for advertising and promotional purposes, without further compensation. 

NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP/WAIVER OF EQUITABLE RELIEF: Each entrant hereby acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between the entrant and the Promotion Entities is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that the entrant’s decision to provide the entrant’s Submission to Sponsor for purposes of the Promotion does not place the Promotion Entities in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to elements of the entrant’s Submission.  Each entrant understands and acknowledges that the Promotion Entities have wide access to ideas, stories, photographs, designs, and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by their own employees.  Each entrant also acknowledges that many ideas or other materials may be competitive with, similar or identical to the Submission and/or each other in theme, idea, format, or other respects.  Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that such entrant will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of any Promotion Entity’s use of any such similar or identical material.  Each entrant acknowledges and agrees that the Promotion Entities do not now and shall not have in the future any duty or liability, direct or indirect, vicarious, contributory, or otherwise, with respect to the infringement or protection of the copyright in and to the Submission.

NO OBLIGATION TO USE:  Sponsor shall have no obligation (express or implied) to use any Submission or any materials or content created by the entrant (the “Materials”), or to otherwise exploit any Submission or Materials or, if commenced, to continue the distribution or exploitation thereof, and Sponsor may at any time abandon the use of the Submission or Materials for any reason, with or without legal justification or excuse, and entrants shall not be entitled to any damages or other relief by reason thereof.
