3. Players Circle Loyalty Program
A. Rewards Program Period:
The Rewards Program is open only to legal residents of one of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom or Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, Italy, Spain or Austria who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry and legal residents of Canada, except for legal residents of Quebec, who have reached the age of majority at the time of entry. Officers, directors and employees of Company and its subsidiary and affiliated companies, distributors, authorized retailers, advertising, promotional and judging agencies, persons engaged in the development, production or distribution of materials for this Rewards Program (collectively, “Rewards Program Parties”) and the immediate family members (parent, child, sibling, and spouse of each) of and/or persons living in the same household as such individuals (whether related or not) are not eligible to participate or redeem Points (defined below). No groups, clubs, newsletters or organizations may participate in this Rewards Program on behalf of the group, club or organization.
Register for the Rewards Program for free via the Internet by visiting daddario.com/playerscircle (“Rewards Website”) during the Rewards Program Period. To register, once at the Rewards Website, follow the on-screen instructions by providing the information requested, which may include, but may not be limited to, user name, first name, last name, mailing address (no P.O. Boxes accepted), email address, and password (“Account”). When accessing the mobile site please note that standard data carrier rates may apply. Check with your carrier for details. Limit one (1) Account per person/e-mail address/mobile phone number. Anyone found attempting to use multiple/different Accounts, email accounts, identities, registrations, or logins, or otherwise attempting to obtain more than the stated limit of Accounts may be deemed ineligible, disqualified, and his/her Accounts may be cancelled, and all corresponding Points may be void, in Company’s sole discretion. Only the individual named as the primary Account holder will accrue Points and will be entitled to access to the Account. Points may not be combined from different Accounts for any purpose. Each participant shall have the responsibility of ensuring that his or her Points are properly credited by following the process set forth in paragraph D below. Company reserves the right to invalidate Points from an Account if it determines that such Points were improperly credited to such Account or obtained fraudulently. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a participant a vested right or interest, and have no cash value. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason.
D. How to Earn Points:
i. Earn Points on Qualifying D’Addario Purchases: During the Rewards Program Period, registered Account holders will be able to receive D’Addario rewards points (“Point(s)”) when the Account holder makes a “Qualifying D’Addario Purchase,” which is defined as a purchase at retail of a qualifying D’Addario product containing a unique nineteen-character Code (each, a “Code”). Products purchased that do not contain a Code will not constitute a Qualifying D’Addario Purchase. Visit the Rewards Website for a list of qualifying D’Addario products and their Point value. This list is subject to change at any time and without notice to you. To receive Points, make a Qualifying D’Addario Purchase and input the Code on the Rewards Website. You should save your receipts from Qualifying D’Addario Purchases for six months from the date of purchase on each applicable receipt, as Company reserves the right to request, in Company’s sole discretion, receipts for verification purposes.
Not all qualifying products will be available in all areas. In addition, Company reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to introduce new products or models, which may contain a Code and have a different Point value than listed above. If any part of any Code is counterfeited, or if the Code comes from other games or promotions, or if any part is illegible, mutilated, destroyed or tampered with in any way, or if it contains or reflects printing, typographical, mechanical or other errors, the Code, as applicable, will be rejected and will be deemed void and invalid. Company’s sole liability with respect to a defective Code shall be replacement with one (1) Code during the Rewards Program Period, while supplies last. Each participant acknowledges and agrees that the decisions of Company shall be final, binding and conclusive in all matters relating to the Rewards Program, including without limitation determinations regarding the validity of Codes, Qualifying D’Addario Purchase(s) and other materials submitted for verification. Codes may not be sold, traded, bartered, auctioned (including through Internet auction sites), or given away. Rewards Program materials are null and void and will be rejected if not obtained through authorized, legitimate channels.
E. Enter Code(s) Into Your Account:
Each time you enter a valid Code during the Rewards Program Period online, your Account will automatically be credited with the Points associated with that Code. Please allow 24 hours for Points to be credited into your Account. Points have no cash value. Any unused Points remaining in an Account after the end of the Rewards Program Period shall be void. When logged onto your Account you can check your Account history for Point balances and details. Except in Luxembourg in instances of Company's gross or willful misconduct, Company assumes no liability for discrepancies, omissions, inconsistencies or errors in the number of Codes entered or the number of Points acquired as a result thereof. The decisions of Company with respect to Code entry, Account balances and Point transactions are final and binding in all respects. All items/products that may be available on the Rewards Website are subject to change without notice and available while supplies last. You hereby expressly accept and agree that Company, at its sole discretion, reserves the right (without obligation) to substitute items/products of greater or equal value in the event inventory of any one item runs out.
F. Redeem Points:
Subject to Company’s right to add, delete, or otherwise make changes to the Points structure and the rewards offered in connection with the Rewards Program, Points may be redeemed for merchandise found on the Site, while supplies last, and all merchandise obtained through Points redemption shall be a final sale and non-returnable. Each merchandise item has a required number of Points for redemption as stated on the Site. You cannot redeem Points for merchandise unless you have accumulated the required corresponding number of Points in your Account. See Rewards Website or Site for further details on how to redeem Points. Once your order has been submitted, the required number of Points for the selected merchandise will be deducted from your Account. Unless otherwise required by law, once Points have been redeemed for merchandise they may not be returned or refunded to an Account for any reason, including if the merchandise is stolen or lost. Company reserves the right to modify, change, and otherwise revise merchandise on the Site, including and without limitation, the required number of Points for such merchandise.
G. Code Verification and Company’s Recourse in the Event of Fraud:
All Codes and Points are subject to verification at the sole discretion of Company. Be advised that Company uses anti-fraud detection devices to verify the authenticity of all Codes used.
Codes will be void if, as determined by Company in its sole discretion: (i) they fail to pass anti-fraud detection measures; (ii) they are found to be unauthorized or illegitimately obtained (including, for example, through channels other than retail purchase); (iii) they contain an unauthorized message, code or other marking not issued by Company for use in this Rewards Program; (iv) they are defective; contain printing or other mechanical errors; are printed or produced in error; or are illegible, unreadable, or blank.
No Code/Point receipt or redemption will be valid if it is associated with any Code/Point deemed void for any reason, including without limitation, the following: (a) Code/Point is not verified or recognized as being validly issued by Company in the Rewards Program; (b) Code/Point is determined to be previously entered and used; (c) Code/Point is incorrectly or incompletely entered or submitted; (d) Code/Point was obtained in a manner deemed by Company to be fraudulent or otherwise invalid; or (e) Code/Point is otherwise void. Using invalid or fraudulent codes may result in your termination or suspension from the Rewards Program in Company’s sole discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company may, at its sole discretion and without obligation, or if required by law, elect to replace an illegible Code with another Code if appropriate upon request, while supplies last. Except as expressly stated above, and in Luxembourg in instances of Company's gross or willful misconduct, Company shall have no liability or obligation with respect to any void Code.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, the Rewards Program structure is subject to modification, termination, or limitation at any time, subject to reasonable notice in jurisdictions where Company is specifically required by applicable law to provide such notice, in Company's sole discretion, and Company expressly reserves the right to establish additional means of accruing Points, to delete any or all of the currently recognized means of accruing Points, to exclude specific types of transaction therefrom or to make Points selectively available to certain participants based upon factors in its sole discretion. Additionally, membership in the Rewards Program is offered at the discretion of Company and it reserves the right to modify the Rewards Program Terms, Point redemption values, benefits, Company promotion (if any), conditions of participation, rules for issuing, redeeming, retaining, using or forfeiting Points or any other aspect of the Rewards Program, in whole or part, at any time, subject to reasonable notice in jurisdictions where Company is specifically required by applicable law to provide such notice, even though such changes may affect the redemption value of the Points already accumulated. If for any reason Company determines in its sole discretion that the Rewards Program, or any aspect thereof, is no longer capable of running as intended by these Rewards Program Terms for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, any occurrences described in these Terms or any other causes which may corrupt or impair the integrity, security, fairness or proper conduct of the Rewards Program), Company, at its sole discretion but subject to any applicable laws and subject to reasonable notice in jurisdictions where Company is specifically required by applicable law to provide such notice, reserves the right to cancel, terminate, suspend, postpone, delay or modify the Rewards Program in whole or in part, including without limitation, any means of entry, at any time.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, and subject to reasonable notice in jurisdictions where Company is specifically required by applicable law to provide such notice, points may expire, in Company’s sole and absolute discretion. Participants must redeem and use all Points before expiration, or the effective date of termination, or those unused Points shall be forfeited. Points earned through prior rewards programs that have been terminated will not be honored. However, notice of early termination shall not be provided for any actions, petitions or adjudications associated with bankruptcy, insolvency, assignments to creditors or material business interruptions of Company. No extensions, cash refunds or other exchanges will be allowed for expired rewards Points. To the extent permitted by applicable law, if any Account is inactive for a two (2) year period (inactivity defined as no Points added or redeemed to/from a Rewards Program Account for two (2) years), participants acknowledge and agree that Company may, in its sole and absolute discretion, terminate such Account and any Points associated with such Account. Company is not obligated, and will not provide notice of such inactivity or termination to participants. Company reserves the right, at any time, to revise the inactive period causing termination from two (2) years. Notice of such revision shall be posted on the Rewards Website.
By participating in this Rewards Program, participants agree to be bound by these Rewards Program Terms and the decisions of the Company, which shall be final and binding in all respects. Failure to comply with these Rewards Program Terms may result in disqualification. Company reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any individual from participating in any aspect of Rewards Program, and/or may cancel, suspend or block any Account registered by such person (and void any associated Points) if, in its reasonable opinion, Company deems or suspects that such person has engaged in or has attempted to engage in any of the following: (a) violating these Rewards Program Terms or the Terms of the Site; or (b) damaging, tampering with or corrupting the operation of the Rewards Program; or (c) acting with intent to annoy, harass or abuse any other person; or (d) use of any automated bot, script or other robotic, mechanical, programmed or automated devices to submit data to the Site through online or mobile web other means; or (e) attempts to enter and/or receive repetitive, void, additional, or otherwise invalid or fraudulent Points in one or more Accounts, as determined by Company; or (f) any unsportsmanlike, inappropriate, uncooperative, disruptive, fraudulent, potentially fraudulent, or unusual behavior or activity; or (g) activity deemed in the sole discretion of Company to be generally inconsistent with the intended operation of the Rewards Program. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY A PERSON TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR CORRUPT ANY WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE REWARDS PROGRAM COULD BE A CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL OFFENSE. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, COMPANY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE AND/OR SEEK DAMAGES FROM ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW. Company's failure to enforce or delay in enforcing any term of these Rewards Program Terms shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other provision. The failure of Company to comply with the Rewards Program Terms because of an act of God, war, fire, riot, terrorism, earthquake, actions of federal, state, provincial/territorial or local governmental authorities or for any other reason beyond the reasonable control of Company, shall not be deemed a breach of the Rewards Program Terms. To the maximum extent permitted by law, all participants, as a condition of participation in this Rewards Program, agree to release Company and Rewards Program Parties from and against any and all liability, claims or actions of any kind whatsoever for injuries, damages, or losses to persons or property which may be sustained in connection with accessing the Rewards Website, registering an Account, or otherwise participating in any aspect of the Rewards Program, the receipt, ownership or use/misuse of any Company promotion prize awarded (if any) or any item or product redeemed with participant’s Points, or any typographical or other error in these Rewards Program Terms or other Rewards Program materials (including, without limitation, on any Site).
