The Promotion is sponsored and administered by Lyft, Inc., 185 Berry Street, Suite 5000, San Francisco, CA 94107 ("Sponsor"). While this Promotion may be promoted via social media websites, such websites are not affiliated with Sponsor or this Promotion. This Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any other site or medium that might host content where information about this Promotion is posted or published (collectively "Content Hosts").

  1. Promotion Period. The Promotion begins at 12:01 a.m. EST on July 1, 2019, and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on September 23, 2019 (the "Promotion Period"). Only entries submitted and received during the Promotion Period will be eligible. Sponsor is the official timekeeper of this Promotion and will determine social media posting times based on the social media platforms as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.

  1. Eligibility. The Promotion is open only to legal residents of Ohio, who at the time of entry are age 18 or older and have a valid and active CoGo Bike Share account.

Employees or agents of Sponsor or its parent or affiliate companies, promotional fulfillment agencies that are providing services in connection with this Promotion, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee or agent, are not eligible. Only natural persons are eligible to enter (no legal entities). Eligibility is contingent upon agreement to, compliance with, and fulfillment of all requirements of, these Official Rules. Participation in the Promotion in any way, including submission of an entry, constitutes full and unconditional agreement with all provisions of these Official Rules. Promotion is void where prohibited.

  1. How to Enter. There is one method of entry (see below). By participating in the Promotion in any way you will become an "Entrant." Each Entrant who enters using the below method of entry will receive one entry in the Promotion.

Weekly contests: The Promotion is comprised of twelve weekly contests, each with its own prize, and a grand prize based on participation throughout the Promotion. Each week, a weekly contest will be announced on CoGo Bike Share’s official Instagram account @CoGoBikeShare and official Twitter account @CoGoBikeShare (together a “Contest Announcement”). Each Contest Announcement will describe or include trivia about an unidentified location in any of the following places in Ohio: Columbus, Bexley, Grandview Heights, Upper Arlington, or Easton Town Center. The first Entrant who (1) follows the relevant Bikeshare System’s official Twitter or Instagram account (depending on which platform the Entrant enters the Promotion), (2) posts on Twitter or Instagram identifying the correct location and using the campaign hashtag identified in the Contest Announcement, and (3) includes in the post a photograph taken at the location and featuring a CoGo Bike Share bike will be eligible to win the weekly prize. Entrants Instagram and Twitter accounts must be set to public in order to enter. (subject to Winner Determination described in Section 7 below).

Grand Prize Contest: The Entrant who correctly completes the most weekly contests in the Promotion Period will be eligible to win the grand prize (subject to Winner Determination described in Section 7 below). In the event of a tie, a grand prize winner will be determined based on which of the tied Entrants first correctly completed a weekly contest over the course of the Promotion Period.

There is no limitation on the number of weekly contests you may enter, but you are only eligible to win up to two weekly contests.

  1. Conditions of Entry. By entering or participating in this Promotion, Entrant agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and its authorized representatives, which are final and binding in all matters concerning this Promotion. Entries not legitimately submitted in accordance with these Official Rules are void. Only qualified entries received by Sponsor during the Promotion Period are eligible for participation.

All information required by the applicable method of entry must be provided to participate in the Promotion and to be eligible to win a prize. Entries with incomplete, invalid, incorrect, or noncurrent information and entries that are counterfeit, damaged, or tampered with in any way will be disqualified. Entries that are late, lost, damaged, misdirected, stolen or not delivered are not the responsibility of Sponsor and will be disqualified. Sponsor is not responsible if a potential winner does not receive a prize because erroneous, expired, canceled, fraudulent, or fake information was provided during the Promotion. Proof of sent entry and/or entry receipt (such as a copy of a "thank you" message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of entry by Sponsor for purposes of this Promotion.

Participation by any other individual, or any entity, or originating at any other website, email address, or phone number, including, but not limited to, commercial promotion, subscription notification, and promotion entering service sites, is invalid and will be disqualified from this Promotion. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple email addresses, phone numbers, identities, registrations, or logins; entries through a sweepstakes club or similar entity; or any other unauthorized method of entry will void all of Entrant's entries and Entrant will be disqualified from the entire Promotion. Submitting mass entries or entries generated by an automated program, script, or macro, or the use of any other similar device, program, or method to enter this Promotion is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

In the event of a dispute as to the identity of Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Lyft account used to enter will be deemed to be Entrant. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. The "authorized account holder" of an email address is the natural person assigned to that email address by any organization (business, educational institution, etc.) responsible for assigning accounts to that email address. If the identity of the individual who actually participated in the Promotion cannot be resolved to Sponsor's satisfaction, the affected individual's entry will be deemed ineligible.

Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, disqualify any individual it finds to be in violation of these Official Rules, tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion (including, but not limited to, tampering with websites, email addresses, or phone numbers), or acting in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt to undermine the operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal or civil law, and Sponsor may seek damages to the fullest extent permitted by law from any person it finds to have made such an attempt.

All prizes must be accepted as awarded without substitution and are not, in whole or in part, assignable, transferable, or available for resale.

Any prize consistent of tickets or admission to an event might have certain terms and conditions applicable based on the event or event sponsor, such as age minimum requirements. Winners are responsible for compliance with any event specific rules, terms and conditions. Travel to and from an event or place is not included as part of the prize, unless expressly stated otherwise in the prize description. If any prize event or component thereof is cancelled or otherwise does not occur for any reason whatsoever, the portion of the prize associated with that event or component thereof will not be awarded, and any prize or value already awarded in connection with that event will be forfeited and no additional compensation will be provided to the winner. If any prize event or component thereof is rescheduled or postponed, the portion of the prize associated with that event or component thereof will be awarded for the rescheduled date.

Other prize substitution options are available where required by law.

Only the prize set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. In the event that any mistake, failure, or discrepancy causes more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be promoted, noticed, or claimed, Sponsor may award only the stated number of prizes by conducting a random drawing from among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.

Federal, state, and local taxes and all other costs and expenses associated with acceptance and use of any prize not specified herein as being awarded are the winner's sole responsibility.

Any prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.

  1. Winner Determination and Verification.

The potential winner is subject to eligibility verification, on an ongoing basis, by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding. An Entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if notified of being a winner and/or issued any item of value, unless and until Entrant's eligibility has been and continues to be verified to the satisfaction of Sponsor.

The winner and guest may be required to submit, without alteration and in the form provided by Sponsor, a completed and signed Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release, a Publicity Release (where permitted by law), and any required tax forms (collectively, “Winner Documents”), within the required time period communicated in the Winner Documents to be eligible to receive or participate in any prize.

To be verified as eligible to receive a prize, the potential winner and the potential winner’s guest (if applicable) must fulfill all requirements and continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and not be disqualified for any reason. The potential winner will be notified by direct message on the platform of their submission (subject to Sponsor's discretion). If the potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted using the information provided, or fails to respond to Sponsor's attempt to notify them of selection within two business days; if any prize or notification is returned as undeliverable or yields an error or undeliverable type "bounce back" email (regardless if the message is ultimately delivered to the recipient); if the potential winner or winner’s guest fails to sign and return the Winner Documents or any other required documentation or fails to comply with these Official Rules; if the potential winner is unable or unwilling to accept the prize (or any portion) as stated; or if the potential winner cannot be verified as eligible for any reason at any time before, during, or after the Promotion Period, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize (or relevant portion), and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries.

In the event that an Entrant or potential winner is disqualified or fails to claim the prize for any reason, the foregoing process will be repeated until the prize is awarded OR until three attempts have been made to award the prize and each attempt has failed. IF THE PRIZE REMAINS UNAWARDED FOR ANY REASON AFTER THREE ATTEMPTS, THE PRIZE WILL NOT BE AWARDED IN THIS PROMOTION.

  1. Limitations of Liability. Each Entrant agrees, and the winner’s guest must agree in writing, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless, and thereby release and discharge Sponsor, and Content Hosts, and each of their respective affiliates, legal counsel, and advertising, marketing, public relations, and promotional/fulfillment agencies, and each such entities’ officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the "Released Parties") from and against any loss, damage, injury, claim, or cause of action related in any way whatsoever to this Promotion, these Official Rules, or the rights, consents and licenses granted to Sponsor under these Official Rules, including, but not limited to, infringement of any right of publicity or intellectual property; threatened or actual injury, loss or damage to any person, including death and disability; defamation or portrayal in a false light (intentional and unintentional); invasion of privacy; and damage to or loss of property, arising out of such Entrant's participation in the Promotion or receipt or use, non-use or misuse of any prize. To the maximum extent allowed by law, in no event will Released Parties be responsible or liable for any damages or losses of any kind, including indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages arising out of this Promotion. Some jurisdictions may not allow the limitations or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages or exclusion of implied warranties. Check local laws for restrictions regarding these limitations or exclusions.

Entrants waive any right to claim ambiguity in these Official Rules. The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) technical failures of any kind; (2) incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Entrants, any internet or email service provider, any promotional or advertising agency, printing or computing errors, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Promotion; (4) technical or human error that may occur in the administration of the Promotion, the processing of entries or the announcement of the winner and prize; (5) any injury or damage to persons or property, including without limitation computers, phones, and tablets, that may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by Entrant's participation in the Promotion or access to the Promotion materials; (6) the receipt, use or misuse of any prize; or (7) any other errors in any materials, information or announcements associated with the Promotion. If for any reason an Entrant's entry is confirmed by Sponsor to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted by Sponsor, Entrant's sole remedy is another entry in the Promotion, subject to availability and provided that the Promotion Period has not then expired.


  1. License From Entrant. To the extent allowed by law, participation in the Promotion in any way or acceptance of, or participation in, any prize constitutes each Entrant's consent for, and grant of a non-exclusive, sub-licensable and assignable license to Sponsor to use, publish, post, or display Entrant's name, social media handles, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions, statements, prize information, biographical information, and hometown and state, province, or territory, regardless of whether altered, distorted, or used alone or with other material, in Sponsor's sole discretion, for promotional, advertising, trade, and publicity purposes in any medium now known or later discovered, worldwide and in perpetuity, without review or approval, and without further notice, payment, or consideration of any kind.

All rights, consents and licenses granted to Sponsor under these Official Rules or the Winner Documents will survive the termination of this Promotion. Such consents and licenses may only be revoked in writing, and the mere ending of this Promotion or Promotion Period is not sufficient to revoke such consents or licenses.

  1. Right to Modify or Cancel. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event any provision is found invalid or unenforceable, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was never included. Sponsor's failure to enforce any provision of these Official Rules does not constitute a waiver of that provision.

Sponsor may cancel, suspend or modify the Promotion or any part of it, in any way, if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that the Promotion is not capable of executing as Sponsor intended, or that any mistake, clerical or typographical error, omission, fraud, technical failure, tampering, computer virus, or other factor, technical or otherwise, beyond Sponsor's reasonable control, impairs or may impair Sponsor's ability to properly conduct the Promotion, subject to any applicable law or regulation. In such event, Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, award any applicable prize(s) by conducting a random drawing from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the cancellation, suspension, or modification of the Promotion. Inclusion in such random drawing is Entrant's exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

In the event of an inconsistency between these Official Rules and any disclosure or other statement contained in any Promotion-related materials, including, but not limited to, a Promotion entry form or any point-of-sale, radio, television, print, or online advertising, these Official Rules will prevail and govern.

  1. Disputes. Except where prohibited by law, Entrant agrees that: (1) all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded will be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate federal or state court located in San Francisco County, California; and (2) all claims, judgments and awards will be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Promotion, but in no event attorneys' fees. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights or obligations of Entrant or Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.

  1. Winners List. A winners list may be obtained by printing the requestor's name, address, city, state or province/territory and zip or postal code on a 3x5" postcard and mailing it to LYFT, INC., Attn: CoGo Bike Share Summer Scavenger Hunt Contest Winners List, 401 W.
