These Official Rules should be read in conjunction with the individual contest variant instructions as described further below.

CERTAIN Tellie CONTESTS ARE OPEN ONLY TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF AND ARE LOCATED IN THE 50 UNITED STATES OR DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA OR CANADA DURING THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THE CONTEST INSTANCE, WHO ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE AT THE TIME OF ENTRY. Tellie WILL DESIGNATE SUCH CONTESTS AS UNITED STATES AND CANADA ONLY CONTESTS.

Tellie CONTESTS ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW OR WHERE BONDING, REGISTRATION, OR OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET, OR WHERE THE METHODS OF ENTRY WOULD BE DEEMED CONSIDERATION. ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS APPLY.
GOVERNED BY LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
Tellie Contests are sponsored by Strimmerz Media, Inc. (“Sponsor”). Tellie Contests are not sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Apple Inc., Paypal, Inc., or their subsidiaries or affiliates.
Subject to these Official Rules, an “Entrant” into any Tellie Contest be at least eighteen (18) years of age on the date of entry. In Tellie Contests designated as United States or Canada Only Contests, an Entrant must be a natural person of and located in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia or Canada during the entire duration of the Contest Instance (as defined below). To be eligible to receive a Prize (as defined below), the information associated with the Entrant’s account must be true and accurate. The information associated with the Entrant’s account must identify the actual Entrant into the applicable Tellie Contest. To facilitate the delivery of a Prize (as defined below), Sponsor may try to contact the winner using the contact information provided during account registration. If Sponsor cannot get in contact with the winner using that contact information, the winner may forfeit his/her Prize. Some Tellie Contests are open only to residents of specific countries. Any person who enters into a Contest that he/she is not eligible to enter may not win a Prize (as defined below) in that Contest.
Officers, directors, employees, agents, sales representatives, distributors, and contractors (collectively, "employees") of Sponsor and its respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising, promotion, or web design agencies, and any other entity involved in the development or administration of its contests (“Contest Entities”), and all persons residing in the same households as employees, including but not limited to, immediate family members, are not eligible to win prizes in Tellie Contests while the employee is employed or engaged by a Contest Entity and for six months following the employee’s last day working with or for a Contest Entity.
Entrants may, in certain circumstances, communicate with, work with, or otherwise benefit from others with whom they have a preexisting relationship with while participating in a Tellie Contest. Entrants may not communicate with, work with, or otherwise benefit from more than 10other persons while entering a Tellie Contest if the communications between the Entrant and those persons is facilitated by any technological means.
Tellie reserves the right to verify an Entrant’s eligibility before, during, or after any Tellie Contest. Eligibility verification may be conducted by third parties. Certain Contests are subject to additional eligibility and identity verification requirements, such as those
Notice to all international Entrants: As stated above, it is your responsibility to comply with the contest laws of your country/jurisdiction. You acknowledge that certain countries/jurisdictions have laws about contests that may prevent Sponsor from awarding you your Prize (as defined below). If you are a winner and this happens to be the case with your country/jurisdiction, you acknowledge that you may not be able to receive any Prize at all from Sponsor. By entering a Tellie Contest, you acknowledge the risks, and understand that you may win, but not be able to receive a Prize
Sponsor will announce Tellie Contests through the App from time to time. You may join a Tellie Contest while it is live. Entrants may enter Tellie Contests on more than one occasion (each a “Tellie Contest Instance”). Sponsor reserves the right to cancel a Tellie Contest or Contest Instance, in our sole discretion, with no restrictions.
HOW TO ENTER:
No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in Tellie Contests. Enter a Tellie Contest by completing each of these steps:
- Download or open the App downloaded through the Apple Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device, and either (a) if you already have a Tellieaccount (“Account”), log into your existing Tellie Account, or (b) if you do not already have a Tellie Account, sign up for a Tellie Account with a verified phone number.
- Sponsor will then automatically match you with other players. Follow the directions in the App and refer to the individual contest variant instructions (“Contest Variant Instructions”) as described further below.
- Play at least one Tellie Contest to completion.
Winners of a Tellie Contest Instance may be entitled to receive a cash prize, determined in our sole discretion (“Prize”). Depending on the Tellie Contest Instance, there may be multiple winners (as explained in the Contest Variant Instructions). In such cases, the multiple winners will receive the Prize pursuant to the procedures described in the Contest Variant Instructions. You may view the total of all accrued Prizes you have won in the App. To receive payment of your accrued Prizes, you must cash-out Prizes through PayPal, a third party service. Prize fulfillment will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of PayPal, located at https://www.paypal.com . In certain instances involving larger Prizes, at our sole discretion, Sponsor will contact you directly to receive the Prize by a mutually agreeable method and payment will be subject to a confirmation of the winner’s eligibility to receive a Prize consistent with these Official Rules and the Tellie.TV Terms of Service. Each Account can be associated only with one PayPal account. And a PayPal account cannot be associated with more than one Account. Attempts to associate an Account with additional PayPal accounts may result in the termination of that Tellie Account and forfeiture of any prizes awarded.
You must comply with the Rules of Conduct in section 5 of Tellie.TV’s Terms of Service. Any entry by any user that does not comply with the Rules of Conduct, the Terms of Service, or these Contest Rules will be disqualified.
Each user may establish, maintain, use and control only one Account. Each Account may only be owned, maintained, used and controlled by one individual. For avoidance of doubt, users may not “co-own” Accounts. If Sponsor determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one Account, in addition to any other rights that Sponsor may have, Sponsor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any or all of your Accounts and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any Prizes.
Tellie will only issue a Prize and any accompanying tax forms to the individual identified in the account information for the winning Account. Sponsor uses your Account information to contact and verify winners. Out of date or incorrect Account information when you enter a Tellie Contest may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information for your Account may result in termination of that Account and forfeiture of any Prizes awarded.
Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any entries that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated means or scripts or that violate any of these Contest Rules or the Terms of Service. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means are void.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding for all matters related to Tellie Contests. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any Prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules, in the Contest Variant Instructions, and/or the App. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to the winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize cannot be fulfilled to the winner because of any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right not to award the Prize at all. The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. Winner acknowledges and agrees that Sponsor may deduct taxes from the Prize to the extent required by law. Winners shall provide Sponsor with accurate information about their identity and country of residence.

Tellie Contests are conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all matters relating to Tellie Contests.

If a Contest winner fails to login to the App for 180 consecutive days, any Prizes won by that user will be considered forfeited and Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all. If an Entrant is found to be ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all.

Each contest variant is governed by a different set of Contest Variant Instructions, which explain how to participate and how winners are determined.
