Any images you upload or send via SMS/MMS which may contain personal information are uploaded at your own risk.

Images will be stored for 30 days, after which time requests for Point or Token adjustments may not be made.
Points and Tokens:
Points and Tokens accrued in the Program are non-transferable to other Member Accounts and cannot be combined with or shared with any other Member Account, even if Claims within a Member Account were made on behalf of other eligible household members. Points and Tokens do not constitute property, do not entitle a Member to a vested right or interest and have no cash or monetary value. Sponsor expressly reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to establish additional means of accruing Points and Tokens, to delete any or all of the means currently in effect, to exclude specific types of Activities from the accumulation of Points or Tokens and to specify periods after which unused Points and/or Tokens will be forfeited. If for any reason your Member Account is terminated by either you or the Sponsor, all of your Points and Tokens accrued will be forfeited. Unused Points and Tokens shall be deemed void upon the termination of the Program or such expiration period or date that we may impose from time to time. Points, Tokens, and Member Accounts cannot be sold, traded, bartered, assigned or transferred to or shared with a third party or auctioned through an online auction site or otherwise. Any Points or Tokens which Sponsor deems in its sole and absolute discretion to have been sold, traded, bartered, assigned or transferred may be confiscated and/or cancelled. Points and/or Tokens, once redeemed, cannot be returned, refunded, transferred or re-used. For clarity, Points redeemed for Tokens cannot be converted back into Points.
Each Code is a numeric or alphanumeric code that provides a limited-time offer to receive a certain number of Points or Tokens when entered. Codes may be either Offer Codes which allow access to Point-earning offers (see Section 5.a), or Engagement Codes which may be entered to earn Tokens (see Section 5.b(ii)). Engagement Codes may be distributed in a number of ways including, but not limited to, the following: print advertisements and/or communications made through the Website, email, and/or social media. Subsequent attempts to re-submit or re-use the same Engagement Code will be void and ineligible to earn Tokens. Each time you enter an Engagement Code, your Member Account will be credited with the appropriate number of Tokens corresponding to that Code. Each Code can only be used once by a Member. All Codes must be redeemed by the date indicated in the applicable communication, if any, or they will be void. We suggest you retain your original Codes for verification if required and for your records. All Codes are subject to verification at the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor and its authorized agents. No Points or Tokens will be credited for any Code deemed void for any reason. Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, determine any Code to be void for any reason including but not limited to the following: Code is obtained through unauthorized or illegitimate sources/channels, including purchased or obtained at a live auction; Code is not verified or recognized as a valid Code issued by Sponsor; Code is determined to be previously entered and used; Code is incorrectly or incompletely entered or submitted; or Code contains printing or production errors, or any errors in any way. Only Codes obtained from methods approved by Sponsor are eligible.
Point and Token Balances:
Sponsor will attempt to credit earned Points and Tokens on a timely basis. However, neither Sponsor nor its agents will be liable for any uncredited or misdirected Points or Tokens. Sponsor reserves the right to invalidate Points and/or Tokens if it determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such Points or Tokens were improperly credited or obtained fraudulently, or in a manner not described herein. Subject to forfeiture or any expiration, Points and Tokens will be maintained in your Member Account until they are redeemed in accordance with Section #6, or until the termination of the Program, whichever shall first occur. All decisions regarding Point and/or Token balances, redemptions, and forfeitures, and the identity of the individual accessing a Member Account, are within the Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
Expiration of Point and Token Balances Due to Account Inactivity:
Points and/or Tokens shall be maintained in the Member's Account until they are redeemed or until they expire as outlined herein, whichever occurs first. Points and/or Tokens in any Member Account in which no valid earning or redemption activity has occurred for twelve (12) consecutive calendar months will expire at the end of the last day of the twelfth month. Adjustments to Member Accounts by Sponsor will not be considered qualifying activity. Expired Points and Tokens will be removed from Member's Account. No extensions, cash refunds or other exchanges will be allowed for expired Points and/or Tokens.
Member Account Identity Dispute:
In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of a registered Member Account holder, the registration will be deemed to have been made by the authorized account holder of the email address at the time of registration and he/she must comply with these Official Terms and Conditions. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access or online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

By continuing to participate in any part of the Website following the posting of any such change, you are deemed to have agreed to the amended version of these Official Terms and Conditions and are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this Website to review the then current Official Terms and Conditions to which you are bound.

Notwithstanding all of the above, should Sponsor decide to discontinue the Program before the End Date, Sponsor will attempt to give notice to users (as determined in Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion).

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, SO THE LIMITATIONS ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Conflicts in Terms:
In the event of any conflict between any details contained in these Official Terms and Conditions and details contained in any other materials, the details of the Program as set forth in these Official Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
If any provision of these Official Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of these Terms and Conditions, which will otherwise remain in full force and effect.
Arbitration and Governing Law:
Binding Arbitration: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the Program shall be settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by the parties, in accordance with the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply New Jersey law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the required claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties. THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN THE PARTICIPANT’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES. BY PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM, EACH PARTICIPANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE PROGRAM, OR ANY POINTS OR TOKENS AWARDED, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (2) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS' FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (3) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY PARTICIPANT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND PARTICIPANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (4) PARTICIPANT'S REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND PARTICIPANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO EVERY PARTICIPANT. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Official Terms and Conditions, or the rights and obligations of participant and Sponsor in connection with the Program, and/or for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the substantive laws of the State of New Jersey without regard to New Jersey conflicts of laws principles. All participants consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the federal, state and local courts for Bridgewater, New Jersey.
Sponsor's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Official Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Sponsor in writing.
