Our Legal Rights
These Terms and the relationship between you and PrizeWiseTM shall be governed by the laws of the State of Utah without regard to any conflict of law provisions. You agree to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within Salt Lake City, Utah. You hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the State and Federal courts in Utah in all disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms or other agreements referenced herein.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration or claim under these Terms shall be joined to any other arbitration or claim, including any arbitration or claim involving any current or former User of our services, and no class arbitration proceedings shall be permitted.
You agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to PrizeWiseTM or the website must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
Use of our services is limited only to individuals or entities which are capable of forming legally binding contracts. Our services are not available to anyone under the age of eighteen (18). All prizes sold online in the Sweepstakes Rewards Program must originate on the North American Continent, where their transfer from winner to seller can be more easily tracked. Users residing outside of North America may register and use the site only for entering sweepstakes, and only if they agree to pay the shipping and duties on any prizes they win. We apologize that we cannot offer selling privileges to all users. Currently, it is too difficult for us to monitor the shipping of prizes originating beyond North America's borders. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason: specifically, to individuals or entities who we believe have broken the letter or spirit of this Agreement and the program it describes, to those individuals or entities those who we believe have acted deceitfully or in bad faith, or to individuals or entities who we deem for any reason to be likely to do so. We are not bound to provide explanations for our refusals. If you are registering as a business, charity, or other entity, you are certifying that you are authorized to so register the business, charity, or other entity.
Currently, to sell items in PrizeWise's Sweepstakes Rewards Program, PrizeWise users must have 15 unused tickets in the account used to sponsor the sweepstakes. There is no minimum purchase necessary to enter sweepstakes posted on the site. You may write in for a free game piece with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to the address on the "huh?" page above. Coupons may be purchased in quantities of 15 or greater for $1.00 per coupon, or $1.30 per coupon if purchased in quantities of less than 15 . We may modify these fees and requirements at any time.
In the case that a user purchases a coupon or ad on PrizeWise that turns out to be expired or otherwise void, that user will be entitled to a replacement coupon or ad randomly chosen and posted to their account, but not a refund.
THE COMBINED TOTAL LIABILITY FOR PRIZEWISE AND ALL THE PARTIES LISTED IN PARAGRAPH 5 BELOW FOR ALL DAMAGES SHALL NOT AMOUNT TO MORE THAN $200.00.
PrizeWise users are responsible for paying applicable taxes on items they win in the Sweepstakes Rewards Program in whatever jurisdiction they may reside. PrizeWise has attempted to model its site to comply with major recognized laws, but PrizeWise cannot be all things to all jurisdictions. It is, therefore, up to PrizeWise users to ensure that they are posting or acquiring prizes in a manner consistent with governing laws. PrizeWise allows users from North America to register and has attempted to model the site to conform with the numerous laws of the North American Continent out of respect for those laws, but with no agreement to be bound by them. PrizeWise is an online coupon retailer. PrizeWise users acknowledge that PrizeWise, its parent companies, subsidiaries, principals, employees, partners and associates are not in any way responsible for sweepstakes sponsored by others online in the PrizeWise forum or subject to local jurisdictions. PrizeWise users must be aware that they are buying coupons, to which the sweepstakes tickets are incidental. They furthermore acknowledge that PrizeWise is not sponsoring the sweepstakes, but is simply providing the forum in which other third parties can, which parties take responsibility for their own actions. PrizeWise holds the money in escrow for those entities conducting sweepstakes on its site. PrizeWise sweepstakes are void where prohibited, and PrizeWise employees and their families may not participate in the Sweepstakes Rewards Program.
As a courtesy to PrizeWise users concerned with having a manner of recourse if the transactions facilitated for them online are done fradulently, PrizeWise agrees to waive its jurisdictional claims and be bound in civil matters only to arbitration with the American Arbitration Association, headquartered in New York, NY in the United States. In the event a dispute arises between PrizeWise users and PrizeWise in regard to their respective rights, duties and obligations under this PrizeWise User Agreement, or otherwise, or in the event of a dispute between a PrizeWise user and the company, it is agreed that such disputes shall be exclusively resolved pursuant to binding arbitration under the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association with arbitration to occur in Las Vegas, Nevada. The arbitrator may award, in addition to declaratory relief, compensatory relief as set forth in the PrizeWise User Agreement and not otherwise, and shall award the prevailing party reasonable attorney's fees and costs. All PrizeWise users also agree to be bound by arbitration with the American Arbitration Association and to agree to waive other claims of jurisdiction.
Transfer of Ownership
PrizeWise does not transfer legal ownership of the items listed in its Sweepstakes Rewards Program or guarantee the quality of the items there listed. PrizeWise makes a good faith effort to see that ownership is transferred in accordance with the rules of the Sweepstakes Reward Program, and to regulate the integrity of its users, but cannot ensure that a seller will complete the transaction. Likewise, PrizeWise is not responsible for losses sustained by users in uncompleted transactions. By using PrizeWise, you agree to accept the risks of such losses. If a seller fails to deliver a prize to the winner after repeated requests, PrizeWise will give the winner the money the seller would have received.
PrizeWise reserves the right to refuse to post items it deems to be grossly overpriced or offensive. On cars, our general rule is that the sell price must not exceed 150% of NAPA low bluebook value, and we judge items without bluebook values under a similar standard. Gift certificates have separate rules. As a general rule, if you are attempting to post an item for more than twice the amount that you could sell it for on eBay, the item will likely be refused. If your posting is refused, we will tell you why and for what price we will approve it if you resubmit. You may also appeal a denial to the reviewing manager, and there is an explanation field in the item submission form where you may explain the reasons that a higher than normal selling price may be justified to us. We also reserve the right to refuse items that we deem to be offered in violation of reasonable laws.
It is currently PrizeWise procedure to have an Intel random number generator, seeding by noise internal to the computers' conductors, pick the winners of all sweepstakes. The winning ticket is chosen and posted the moment the final ticket is entered. This process has been proven highly reliable and perfectly random. If there is ever a situation in which a winner must be chosen by hand (i.e., a site bug, an invalid first-time winner, etc.), the winning ticket number will be chosen by the most reputable third party with whom are able to contract, such as our accounting firm or law firm. The sweepstakes information will be transferred to the third party in a double-blind arrangement (in which neither party has both the ticket numbers and their owners, or the winner), and the third party will randomly pick the winning ticket by physically rolling a ten-sided dice, logging each digit after it is rolled.
When any sweepstakes ends, PrizeWise holds the money in escrow until the item is delivered to the sweepstakes winner by the seller. The seller must post the tracking number of the item for us within eight (15) business days of the sweepstakes close or provide other proof of title transfer. Once proof of delivery is confirmed by us, normally through confirmation from the winner and/or the shipping provider's records, we send a check to the seller for the sweepstakes price minus our commission, transaction fees, and charitable donations. Sellers will receive 83% of the posted price back. The seller's User Rating will be negatively affected if the prize is not processed for transfer to the winner within the eight (15) day period. If the seller fails to deliver the item to the winner within fifteen (15) days, or make other arrangements with us, PrizeWise will pay the sweepstakes winner 83% of the auction price in dollars and blacklist the seller, after which the matter will be closed.
On any item closing for over $1,000.00, we will honor requests by the seller to submit their money to a reputable out-of-house escrow account to alleviate seller fears about receiving payment before parting with the item. Such arrangements must be made with PrizeWise Customer Service, at CustomerService@PrizeWise.com, within the eight (15) business day period.
The seller is responsible for shipping costs to winners in North America and must factor them into the auction price before posting. The seller is not responsible for shipping costs to any country outside North America. If the item is won by a user residing on continents outside North America, the winner will be responsible for the shipping and duty costs.
Taxes, Duties & Fees
All prize winners are responsible for paying taxes on the prizes they have won in their own jurisdictions. Winners are responsible for any additional fees involved in shipping the prize overseas and for any duties imposed on such prizes.
If any provision of this agreement is found to be unenforceable, it is agreed that it will be severed from the remaining provisions of the agreement, and the remainder will be enforced.
