To enter, an eligible entrant may visit www.facebook.com/CatherinesPlusSizes during the applicable Sweepstakes Period by using his or her valid Facebook account and posting a comment (“Entry Comment”) on Sponsor’s applicable Invitation Post that responds to the prompt included in the Invitation Post.

Entry Comments must be submitted during the applicable Sweepstakes Period in strict accordance with any Sponsor instructions and restrictions provided in the applicable Invitation Post and these Official Rules. Entries may not be made jointly or by any group and may only be made by an individual. Facebook’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Promotion. For purposes of this Promotion, an Entry Comment is “received” when Facebook’s servers record your Entry Comment and it is visible to Sponsor as a comment on the Invitation Post for the applicable Sweepstakes. Other proof of submitting an entry (such as, without limitation, a screenshot of your purported entry) does not constitute actual receipt of the entry for purposes of this Promotion. Entry Comments received outside the applicable Sweepstakes Period, Entry Comments that are not viewable by Sponsor, Entry Comments that are incomplete or incorrect (if the applicable Invitation Post asks a question to which there is a factually correct answer), and/or Entry Comments that contain content or language that is obscene or offensive, that violate any third party’s or Sponsor’s rights, or communicate messages inconsistent with the reputation and image with which Sponsor wishes to associate itself (all as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) will be void. Receipt of entries will not be acknowledged or returned. Facsimiles, mechanical reproductions, alterations, garbled, incomplete, misdirected, lost, late, mutilated, or forged entries, or entries generated by a macro, bot, or other automated means will not be accepted and are void. Those who do not follow all of the instructions, provide the required information in their entry, or abide by these Official Rules will be disqualified. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at or using any other website or online service other those operated by Facebook as part of its service, including, without limitation, commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Promotion. ANY ENTRY OR ENTRY COMMENT THAT DOES NOT CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS IN THESE OFFICIAL RULES MAY, IN SPONSOR’S SOLE DISCRETION, BE DEEMED INELIGIBLE.
Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Facebook account to enter a Sweepstakes. Any attempt by an entrant to submit more than permitted number of entries by using multiple/different Facebook accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to enter the Promotion is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address provided or associated with the Facebook account used to submit the entry will be deemed to be the entrant, but only if that person is an eligible entrant in accordance with these Official Rules. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address which was used to create the Facebook account. Entrants, including the potential winners, may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder of an entry.

  • Disputes/Governing Law: You agree that these Official rules and your participation in THE Promotion are governed by the laws of the state of Pennsylvania, USA. BOTH YOU AND Sponsor WAIVE THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO BRING OR RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THE JAMS (DEFINED BELOW) RULES TO THE CONTRARY, THE ARBITRATOR SHALL NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY OR ANY JURISDICTION TO HEAR THE ARBITRATION AS A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR TO CONSOLIDATE, JOIN, OR OTHERWISE COMBINE THE CLAIMS OF DIFFERENT PERSONS INTO ONE PROCEEDING.

 

The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties.  In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited.  The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.  The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Promotion will be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS.  In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by another mutually agreeable arbitration administration service who will hear the case.  If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Chicago, IL, New York City, NY, Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA or Dallas, TX (whichever is closest to your residence).  The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration.  Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions or class arbitrations; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate does not apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  SPONSOR agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing).  Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.  In no event will you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief or to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of the Promotion.

Further, in any such dispute, under no circumstances will an entrant be permitted or entitled to obtain awards for, and hereby waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental or consequential damages, or any other damages, including attorneys’ fees, other than entrant’s actual out-of-pocket expenses (if any), not to exceed ten U.S. dollars ($10 USD), and entrant further waives all rights to have damages multiplied or increased.
