In celebration of World Kindness Day, on November 13, 2023, every participating Sponsor store location will have one hundred (100) boxes of cookies, each box containing a half dozen cookies, available for free in-store pickup by any Eligible Person who would like to participate in this Sweepstakes through the act of giving away the cookies to another individual. During the Sweepstakes Period, any Eligible Person may enter to win by (a) posting a photo or video to Instagram (the “Platform”), exhibiting the act of kindness of gifting the box of cookies to another individual; tagging @tiffstreats; and using the hashtag #cookiekindness (collectively, the “Instagram Entry”). An “Entrant” is any Eligible Person who enters via Instagram Entry. Entry closes at the end of the Sweepstakes Period. Limit of one (1) free box of half dozen cookies per Eligible Person, and limit of one Entry, regardless of type, per Entrant.
The Entry must fulfill all Sweepstakes requirements, as specified, to be eligible to win a prize. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to the Official Rules or specifications may be disqualified at the sole discretion of Sponsor. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the Official Rules, your Entry submission may be removed from eligibility at the sole discretion of Sponsor. All information provided by Entrant must be complete, true and correct. All Entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned.
Any incomplete or unintelligible Entries will not be processed. The use of robotic, automatic, macro, programmed, or like methods (including without limitation the use of any promotion/sweepstakes subscription, notification entry or like sites or services that offers sweepstakes entry services “on behalf of” Entrant) is strictly prohibited. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected Entry submissions, which will be disqualified and destroyed.
If a dispute arises over the identity of the person who transmitted an Entry via the Platform, or via an identified e-mail address, the Entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the Platform account or the e-mail address included in the Entry. The “Authorized Platform Account Holder” is defined as the natural person assigned to a Platform account by the Platform, which is responsible for assigning Platform accounts associated with the submitted email address and other personal information required; and the “Authorized E-mail Account Holder” is defined as the natural person assigned to an e-mail address by an internet access provider, online provider or other organization (e.g., business, education institution, etc.) responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address (together with the Authorized Platform Account Holder, the “Authorized Account Holder”). Any potential winner may be required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder. Any potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that such potential winner is the Authorized Account Holder of the Platform account or the e-mail address associated with the winning entry and that all eligibility requirements are met. No transfer of ownership of an Entry is permitted. No Entries will be accepted from or on behalf of, corporations, trusts, partnerships, or other entities; an Entry must be from and on behalf of a natural person. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to supplement or make changes to these Official Rules at any time without notice.
4. YOUR USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
By entering, entrants understand and agree that submitted eligible entries may be subject to public viewing, streaming (i.e., “digital transmission”), downloading (i.e., “digital distribution”), and public comments, including but not limited to being forwarded, re-grammed, re-tweeted, and otherwise re-posted, for commercial and non-commercial purposes, throughout Sponsor’s and (unrelated) third parties’ digital and off-line social media, marketing and advertising properties. A delay may occur between uploading an entry and availability into the public gallery, if any. If an entry in whole or in part, for any reason whatsoever, garners comments that are unpleasant, distasteful, nasty or otherwise inappropriate for Sponsor’s community, or if Sponsor considers for any reason an entry, or any element thereof, not to be in the spirit of the Sweepstakes, or will have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, this Sweepstakes, any of Sponsor’s brands, products or services, or the entry does not initially appear compliant with the respective Platform guidelines, then Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify such entry/entrant and remove any/all such entry/entries immediately from the gallery (if any) and this Sweepstakes.
5. YOUR USE OF A MOBILE DEVICE.
If an Entrant is participating in the Sweepstakes via a mobile device, message and data rates may apply. Entrant should consult his or her wireless service provider regarding its pricing plans. Participation may not be available on all mobile devices, as not all mobile devices or cellular telephone providers have the capabilities or carry the service necessary to participate in the stated methods of entry. Consent is not a condition of purchase.
6. PRIZES, WINNER SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT.
The winners will be selected and notified by Sponsor on or around November 20, 2023. After the end of the Sweepstakes Period, twenty-five (25) winners will be randomly selected from the pool of Entrants by Sponsor. Each winner will receive a $250 Tiff’s Treats gift card (prize up to $250.00 total value) (collectively, the “Prizes” and each individually, a “Prize”). The total value of all Prizes is $6,250.

Winners will be notified by Sponsor via Platform direct message, or via e-mail, with additional instructions to claim their respective Prize. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner’s failure to receive notices due to winner’s spam, junk e-mail or other security settings or for any winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. If any selected winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, or fails to claim the Prize within 5 days from the time the award notification was sent, the Prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected. If any selected alternate winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible or fails to claim the Prize within 5 days the Prize shall be deemed forfeited entirely, and no further alternate winner will be selected.
No cash or other Prize substitution permitted except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Any Prize is non-transferable. Any winner is solely responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and other costs pertaining to the awarded Prize, if applicable. Any person winning over $600 in Prizes during any one-year period will receive an IRS Form 1099 at the end of the calendar year, and a copy of such form will be filed with the IRS.
