A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. PARTICIPATION IN THE RANDOM DRAWING CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY THESE OFFICIAL RULES. Individuals who participate in the Random Drawing or submit an entry are sometimes referred to herein as an “Entrant.”

  1. SPONSOR: KQED, Inc. 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110 (“Sponsor”).
  2. ELIGIBILITY: Random Drawing is open only to individuals who are, (a) at least eighteen (18) years of age, (b) who are, as of the beginning of the Promotion Period (as defined below), legal residents of the state of California, U.S.A. and (c) who post a comment on the Truly CA Facebook page as described below. Employees, officers, directors and agents and their immediate families (regardless of where they live), or members of the same households (whether related or not) of KQED and its affiliates and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Random Drawing Providers”), and any other persons involved with this promotion, are not eligible to participate in the Random Drawing or to win any prize. VOID OUTSIDE OF THE ELIGIBILITY AREA AND WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
  3. HOW TO ENTER: You may enter the Random Drawing beginning 8am PST August 4, 2015 and ending 11:59pm PST August 16, 2015 (the period from August 4 to August 16, 2015 is referred to in these rules as the “Promotion Period”) by commenting on pinned post on the Truly CA Facebook page. Five winners will be chosen by random drawing at the end of the Promotion Period.

Although you may submit multiple comments, only your first comment submitted during the Promotion Period will be eligible for entry.  Further comments from the same Facebook account will be automatically eliminated. Where a dispute arises about who submitted a comment, the entry will be deemed submitted by the holder of the Facebook account.  All comments must comply with Facebook Terms and Policies.


Sponsor reserves the right to verify eligibility of all Entrants. This Random Drawing is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook.

  1. WINNER SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND ODDS OF WINNING: Five (5) Entrants who properly complete all necessary steps for the Random Drawing (each a “Prize Winner”) and two (2) alternates will be chosen at random in a drawing by Sponsor or its designee. The drawing will be held on or before 2015.  The Prize Winner will be contacted via Facebook Direct Message (“Prize Notification”). To be confirmed a Prize Winner, you will be required to reply to the Prize Notification within three (3) business days (the “Prize Notification Period”) with a confirmation of eligibility and an acceptance of these legal rules.  If a selected Prize Winner has not responded within the Prize Notification Period, then his or her prize will be deemed forfeited and awarded to an alternate.  If no alternates remain, or if a selected alternate fails to respond to a Prize Notification within three business days, the Prize will not be awarded.

Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entrants who participate, and are equal regardless of method of entry.

  1. PRIZE:  Each of five Prize Winners will be awarded a prize of one Truly CA T-shirt.  Prize Winners will be offered a selection of sizes, subject to availability. The value of this prize is approximately $20. The prize will be mailed to the Prize Winner.
  2. PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: No portion of the Prize may be transferred, redeemed for cash or substituted, except by Sponsor (in its sole discretion), which reserves the right to substitute any portion of the Prize with a prize of equal or greater value for any reason, including, without limitation, Prize unavailability. All expenses not specifically identified as included in the Prize are the sole responsibility of the Prize Winner. The Prize and all elements thereof, are subject to availability. The Prize is awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). Acceptance, participation in and/or use of the Prize is at Prize Winner’s sole risk and Sponsor is not responsible for any damages whatsoever including special, indirect, or consequential damages, arising out of or in connection with the use and/or misuse of the Prize.

Prize Winner will be solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and fees and other expenses associated with his/her Prize receipt and/or use that are not expressly included in the Prize description. The Prize Winner may be issued a 1099 tax form for the ARV of the Prize. Failure to take or complete any portion of the Prize does not relieve the Prize Winner of his/her tax obligations associated with winning the Prize.

  1. PUBLICITY/PRIVACY POLICY: Except where prohibited by law, each Prize Winner’s entry and acceptance of a Prize constitutes the Prize Winner’s irrevocable, sub-licensable, absolute right and permission for the Sponsor to use, publish, post or display said Prize Winner’s name, photograph, likeness, statements, biographical information, voice, city and state address, Prize information, any quotes attributable to him or her and any other indicia of persona (regardless of whether altered, changed, modified, edited, used alone, or used with other material in the Sponsor’ sole discretion) for any purpose, including but not limited to advertising, trade, promotional and publicity purposes on a worldwide basis, and in all forms of media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, without further authorization, opportunity to review, approval, notification, or compensation of any kind and each Entrant releases Sponsor from any and all liability related thereto. Nothing contained in these Official Rules obligates the Sponsor to make use of any of the rights granted herein and Prize Winner waives any right to inspect or approve any such use.

In order to participate in the Random Drawing, Entrants will be required to post a Facebook message as described above.  This message will be subject to all Facebook Terms and Policies, and will be used by Sponsor for the purposes of administering the Random Drawing and contacting the Prize Winner.  Prize Winners will be required to supply Sponsor with a mailing address after the Contest’s end for the purpose of mailing the Prize.  Sponsor’s privacy policy can be found at http://www.kqed.org/about/help/privacy.jsp

The provisions of this Section 1542 of the Civil Code of California and any similar law of any state, territory, or other jurisdiction are hereby expressly waived.
