Franchisees and employees, directors and officers of Dunkin’ Brands Inc. (“Sponsor”), and their respective affiliates, franchisees, parents, subsidiary companies, and advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Game Entities”), and members of the immediate families (spouses, parents, children, and siblings and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside), and/or those living in the same household, whether or not related, of any of the foregoing are not eligible. Void in Fairfield County, CT, outside of Connecticut, and wherever prohibited or restricted by law. Game is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws. By participating in the Game, you agree that: (1) you have read and understand the Official Rules; (2) you meet the Game eligibility requirements as explained in the Official Rules; (3) you accept and agree to be bound by these Official Rules, to Sponsor's Conditions of Use, Legal Notices and Privacy Policy as published at www.dunkindonuts.com/en/privacy-policy; (4) you unconditionally accept and agree to comply with and abide by the decisions of Sponsor, whose decisions shall be final and binding in all respects; and (5) you agree to release and hold harmless each of the Game Entities and their respective agents, employees, officers, directors, successors and assigns (collectively, “Released Parties”), against any and all claims, injury or damage arising out of or relating to participation in this Game and/or the use or misuse or redemption of a prize.

2. Game Period: The Game begins at start of business Eastern Time (“ET”) on October 3, 2019 and ends at close of business ET on October 31, 2019 (the “Game Period”) and takes place via daily Entry Periods (“Entry Periods”). Each Entry Period takes place on specific Thursdays only throughout the Game Period, as shown in Exhibit A below.

3. How To Play/Winner Notification: During the Game Period, consumers (“you” or “Entrant”) can visit one of the eligible Dunkin’ stores, indicated in Exhibit A below (“Store”), during an applicable Entry Period in order to participate. If you enter an eligible Store at or immediately after one (1) of the winning times pre-determined by the Sponsor (“Game Play”), a representative of the Sponsor will approach you and tell you that you are a potential winner (the “Interaction”), subject to verification of eligibility. The number of pre-determined winning times per Store is dependent on the total number of available prizes in that Store during that Entry Period. If determined eligible by the Sponsor, you will randomly win one of the prizes allocated for that specific Store. Sponsor reserves the right to record the winners, and Interaction (collectively, “footage”) and winners must sign a Liability/Publicity Release providing permission to Sponsor to use or edit the footage in any way it sees fit, for advertising, trade, promotion, and publicity purposes in all forms of media now known or hereafter discovered or devised, worldwide in perpetuity, without further notice, review or approval, or compensation, or prize will be forfeited. Prizes will be awarded on-site once the Liability/Publicity Releases have been signed and returned to the designated representative. Unclaimed Prizes will not be awarded.

4. Instant Winner Verification: Instant winners are subject to verification of eligibility. As noted above, the number of randomly-generated winning times will vary by Store but will correspond with the number of available prizes for that specific Store. The Sponsor will determine, at random, the times at which the Prizes will be awarded throughout the Game Period and which Prizes will be awarded at each time. The number of available Prizes will decrease as Prizes are awarded throughout the Game Period; therefore, the odds of winning are based upon the number and timing of Game Plays received. If, due to an error of any kind, more winners are determined/contacted or more Prizes are claimed than are intended to be awarded per Rule #5, the intended number of prizes will be awarded in a random drawing from among all verified prize claims received by close of business for the applicable Entry Period and Store for that prize. In no event will Sponsor be responsible for awarding more than the number of Prizes stated herein.

5. Prizes/Approximate Retail Values (“ARVs”)/Approximate Odds Of Winning: There is a total of fifty (50) Prizes. The prizes and their ARVs are described in Exhibit B below. The total ARV of all prizes throughout the game period is seven thousand three hundred and ninety-eight dollars ($7,398).
