2. AGREEMENT TO RULES.
Participation in the Giveaway constitutes your agreement to and acceptance of these Rules and the decisions of Nightfood, which are final and binding. Winning a Prize is contingent upon being and staying compliant with these Rules.
3. GIVEAWAY PERIOD
The Giveaway begins on December 1, 2018 at 12:00am PST and ends on June 30, 2019 at 11:59pm PST (the “Giveaway Period”). At its discretion, Nightfood may choose to initiate a new Giveaway when the current Giveaway Period has completed.
4. HOW TO ENTER
During the Giveaway Period, you will have the opportunity to generate unique links to send to your family and friends (“Contacts”) that you would like to refer to the Giveaway. As more and more of your referred Contacts sign-up for the offer, you earn more entries. In order to constitute a valid referral, your Contacts must: 1) sign up for Nightfood’s offer during the Giveaway Period; 2) use a valid email address to sign up; and 3) not already have an account with Nightfood. Each valid referral will be marked as an Entry in the Giveaway.
There is no limit to the number of referrals you may make per day or for the duration of the Giveaway Period.
Each Entrant will receive at least one Coupon from Nightfood for a free pint of Nightfood ice cream. Each Coupon will only be valid at participating retailers, and may require a purchase be made to get the free pint (such as “Buy One, Get One Free”). Coupons will not be issued immediately upon Entry, but rather when generated by the Entrant. The Entrant will be notified as Nightfood is introduced into additional retail locations, and the Entrant will have the opportunity to generate their Coupon at the appropriate time for them based on distribution and their desire to purchase. Nightfood anticipates national distribution of its Ice Cream to be established during 2019 and 2020, although no guarantees can be made that this will occur. Coupons may be generated after the end date of the Giveaway. Once generated, a Coupon will be valid for 3 days.
6. WINNER NOTIFICATION
This section is only applicable to referring parties that qualify for a Prize. Nightfood will attempt to notify the potential winner(s) via email on or about July 1, 2019. If you are eligible for a Prize, you will be notified by email. You will be required to respond to us within five (5) days of the date of notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim your Prize. If you cannot be contacted, or you fail to respond appropriately within the required time period, or the Prize is returned as undeliverable, you forfeit your Prize.

In the event that a Prize recipient is disqualified for any reason, Nightfood is not obliged to provide an alternate Prize, or extend the Giveaway Period in any way.
7. GENERAL CONDITIONS
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Giveaway is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, technical problems, security malfunctions or in the event the Giveaway is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Nightfood in its sole discretion, Nightfood may, in its sole discretion, either: (1) suspend the Giveaway to address the impairment and then resume in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Rules; or (2) terminate the Giveaway and, in the event of termination, no participant shall be eligible for a Prize of any type.
Nightfood reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Rules or in a disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Nightfood reserves the right to seek damages (including attorneys fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by Nightfood to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Participating individuals have been advised of the existence of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code which provides:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
Notwithstanding Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, entry and participation in the Giveaway shall constitute a full release of liability in accordance with its terms. Each Participating party knowingly and voluntarily waives the provisions of Section 1542, as well as any other statute, law or rule of similar effect, and acknowledge and agree that this waiver is an essential and material term of these Rules and that without such waiver, Nightfood would not have accepted the entry.
Nightfood will not ship any Prize to addresses outside of the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States.
