Official Rules

NOTICE REGARDING DISPUTE RESOLUTION: These official rules contain terms that govern how claims between you and Sponsor, relating to your participation in any giveaway, will be resolved. For example, section 13 includes an arbitration agreement and waiver of a class action that requires you to submit all claims to arbitration (instead of going to court before a judge and jury) and limits your ability to bring claims only in an individual capacity (and not as part of or on behalf of any a class action or purported collective or representative claim or proceeding).

No purchase, payment, or donation of any kind is necessary to enter or win. A purchase, payment, or donation will not increase the chances of winning.

Analytical and Diagnostic Solutions, LLC. (referred to herein as “ADS” or “Sponsor”) is a for-profit, sample analysis laboratory leveraging their website to raise funds for expansion of our business operations. The ADS website (, the “Website”) allows almost anybody (see restrictions below) to enter a sweepstakes hosted on the Website.

All entries into the sweepstakes have an equal chance of winning. There are many laws in place to protect sweepstakes participants (“Participants”) and ensure everything's fair. Before entering, please enjoy these long, detailed Official Rules, which provide the general terms and conditions applicable to the sweepstakes.


To be eligible to enter the sweepstakes or be awarded the prize(s) identified, a Participant must fully comply with the Official Rules. Entry into the sweepstakes constitutes the Participant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Website and the sweepstakes. The sweepstakes is subject to all applicable international, federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.

1. Eligibility:  The sweepstakes is open to individuals who (i) are at least 18 years of age or older at time of entry; (ii) are NOT in one or more of the “Prohibited Persons” categories listed in Section 1(A), below; and (iii) are legal residents of the United States. Any entry submitted by any ineligible person(s) will be void. 

(A) Prohibited Persons. The following individuals are not eligible to enter or win any Experience:


(i) A Winner of a Grand-Prize Sweepstakes (as defined in Section 2(A), below) who has won a Grand-Prize in the immediately preceding 18 months.


(ii) Employees, officers, and/or directors of ADS (collectively, the “Sweepstakes Partners” ).


(iii) Sweepstakes Partners' immediate family members (meaning, spouse, parent, child, sibling, and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and/or those living in the same household as Experience Partners (whether or not related) are not eligible to enter or win.

2. How to Enter: The Sweepstakes entry period begins on August 2, 2021 at 12:00 PM, Central Standard Time, and ends on November 30,2021 at 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time. ADS will be the official timekeeper for the sweepstakes.

(A) Grand-Prizes Sweepstakes. The Grand-Prizes Sweepstakes will have two ways to enter:


(i) Entries in Connection with Donation. Visit the Website, click Contact Us, then click Fundraiser. Scroll down and click Donations and Giveaway. Scroll down to the Donations List, choose and click the donation amount and following the instructions to provide your name, contact, and payment information. Upon Sponsor’s receipt of a donation, a donor will automatically receive entries and be entered for a chance to win the Sweepstakes. The number of entries awarded may correspond to the dollar value of the donation, as specified on the Sweepstakes webpage. Individuals may donate as many times as desired, but for the sweepstakes, a Participant is limited to the applicable maximum Entry Limit (as defined below).


(ii) Enter for Free. To enter for free, visit the Website, click Contact Us, then click Fundraiser. Scroll down and click Donations and Giveaway. Scroll down to the end of Donations List  and click the  “enter without contributing” link, follow the instructions to complete the “Giveaway Entry Form” form, and then submit the completed form. Upon receipt of a complete “Giveaway Entry Form” form, a Participant will automatically receive two thousand (1,000) entries into the Sweepstakes. Individuals may submit the “Giveaway Entry Form” form as many times as desired, but for the sweepstakes, a Participant is limited to the applicable maximum Entry Limit (as defined below).


(B) Secondary Promotions. From time to time, Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, host other, secondary Experiences on the Website (each a “Secondary Promotion”), whereby Participants of specific Grand-Prize Experiences will also be automatically entered into the Secondary Promotion. Unless otherwise stated in the Experience Rules of the applicable Secondary Promotion, the only method of entry into such Secondary Promotions would be through participation in an eligible Grand-Prize Experience. Participants in the eligible Grand-Prize Experience(s) will receive the same number of entries into the Secondary Promotion as Participant has in the eligible Grand-Prize Experience(s), up to the Secondary Promotion’s Entry Limit, regardless of method of entry(ies) into the eligible Grand-Prize Experience(s).


(C) Entry Limitations and Restrictions: Only fully completed entries submitted during the Entry Period and received by Sponsor are eligible. Any incomplete, illegible, corrupted, or untimely entries are also void and ineligible to win. Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. To receive valid entries, at the time of submission, Participant must provide a valid email address for which the Participant is the authorized owner. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential Winners and/or Winners (as those terms are defined below) may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Any Entries connected to an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address, or linked to an authorized account holder other than Participant, are void and ineligible to win. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, misdirected, technically corrupted or garbled entries, or for other submission problems of any kind, whether caused mechanical, human or electronic, all of which are void and ineligible to win. Additionally, Sponsor is not responsible for any telephone, electronic, hardware, software, network, Internet, or computer malfunctions, failures, or difficulties. If a Participant’s donation is refunded, any entries associated with such donation will be withdrawn and not eligible to win.


(D) Entry Limit: The maximum number of entries for any one person into this Sweepstakes (the “Entry Limit”) is six thousand (6,000), regardless of the method of entry.


(E) One Valid Email Address per Participant. Multiple Participants may not share the same email address. Using multiple email addresses, identities, address, logins, devices, or any other tactics used in an effort to receive entries over the Entry Limit, is strictly prohibited and will void all entries for that Participant and may result in disqualification of Participant from all Experiences, at Sponsor’s discretion.


(F) No automated entry devices. Use, or attempted use, of any non-manual entry methods (i.e., robotic, automated, programmed, mechanical, etc.) will void all entries for that Participant and will result in disqualification of the Participant from the Sweepstakes, at Sponsor’s discretion. No copies, facsimiles, or other mechanical or electronic reproductions of entries will be accepted.


3. Entry Conditions and Release: As a condition of entering this Sweepstakes, Participant expressly:


(A) Consents to receive information or promotional materials from Sponsor, or any of the other Experience Partners, via email and/or mail;


(B) Represents and warrants that (s)he agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and decisions of the Sponsor, which will be binding and final in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes;


(C) Releases the Sweepstakes Partners from all liability, loss or damage or expense arising out of or in connection with participation in the sweepstakes or the acceptance, use, or misuse of any Prizes;


(D) Knowingly and expressly waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental, consequential, or any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses and/or any rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased;


(E) Agrees that all claims, disputes, or causes of action arising out of or connected with the Sweepstakes, or any Prizes awarded, shall be individually resolved in binding arbitration, per Section 13, without resort to any form of class or representative action;


(F) Agrees that any and all claims, judgments, and awards, if permitted to proceed, will be limited to Participant’s actual out-of-pocket costs incurred (if any), excluding attorneys’ fees and court costs.


Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitations or exclusion of liability set forth above in Section 3. So some of the provisions contained in this section may not apply to every Participant.

4. Winner Drawings: Potential winner(s) of the Sweepstakes (the “Potential Winner”) will be randomly drawn from among all eligible entries received. The drawing will occur on or around December 10, 2021. Sponsor will conduct the drawing and awarding of the Prize. Once confirmed and verified, the Sweepstakes winner is referred to herein as a “Winner.” The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.


5. Prize winner notification Process: Potential Winners will be contacted using the email address used to enter the Sweepstakes. Potential Winners must respond to the initial winner notification email within 24 hours of it being sent or some other time frame indicated in the official winner notification email. If a Potential Winner fails to respond to the notification email within the stated period, Potential Winner may be disqualified and, in such instances, will forfeit any claim to any of the Prize(s). Potential Winners may be named, tagged, or otherwise identified on Sponsor’s Website, Sponsor's other promotional materials, and/or on Sponsor’s social media pages. Potential Winners can object to this by emailing


6. Confirmation and Verification of Potential Winners: A Potential Winner will only be confirmed as the winner eligible to receive the Prize after Sponsor has completed verification of Potential Winner’s eligibility to win and confirmed Potential Winner’s compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. (A verified and confirmed Potential Winner is referred to herein as a “Winner”). Winners must be willing and able to claim and/or accept the Prize(s) in full in the period specified by Sponsor. Potential Winners are subject to confirmation and verification by Sponsor, by whatever means Sponsor shall deem appropriate. To be verified and confirmed, a Potential Winner must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and fulfill all requirements. Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the administration, operation, drawing, verification of the Winner, and all issues related to the Sweepstakes. In addition to all of the other requirements stated in these Official Rules.

(A) Winner Documentation. To receive the Prize(s), and as part of the Winner confirmation and verification process, Potential Winner must accurately complete and timely return Sponsor’s Affidavit of Eligibility, Release of Liability and Publicity Release (where permitted by law), and/or any other document necessary to confirm and verify a Potential Winner’s eligibility, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion (collectively, the “Winner Documentation”). Potential Winner must fully and accurately complete Winner Documentation and timely return all such documentation by the date specified by Sponsor, or the Potential Winner may be disqualified and will forfeit any claim to any of the Prize(s).

(B) Background Checks. Except where legally prohibited, Sponsor reserves the right to conduct background checks on a Potential Winner where applicable. Participation in an Sweepstakes constitutes Participant’s authorization to such background checks without Sponsor providing any additional prior notice or seeking additional permissions or consents from Potential Winner. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any Potential Winner based on the results of such background check  if the Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that awarding the Prize to such Potential Winner might reflect negatively on Sponsor or be likely to put Sponsor in danger. Sponsor is not obligated to clarify, confirm, or share any specific results of background check with any Potential Winner, whether the background check resulted in disqualification or not. Factors that could result in disqualification include, without limitation: having been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, being delinquent on a government-ordered payment, such as child support, spousal support, alimony, tax payments, etc., or any other criminal or civil offense determined at the sole discretion of Sponsor. When requested, Potential Winner  must provide authorization and/or complete any forms reasonably needed to facilitate such a background check. If Potential Winner fails to sign and return the required documentation within the period specified by Sponsor, Potential Winner may be disqualified and will forfeit any claim to any of the Prize(s). Potential Winners will not be disqualified based on race, ancestry, national origin, religion, gender or gender identity, or sexual orientation.


7. PRIZE WINNER DISQUALIFICATION: Reasons a Participant, Potential Winner and/or Winner may be ineligible to receive the Prizes and/or disqualified include, but are not limited to: (i) failures to meet all of the eligibility requirements stated in the Official Rules, (ii) failures to abide by these Official Rules, or other instructions of Sponsor, (iii) failure to provide valid email at the time of entry, (iv) failure to timely respond to Winner notification or any other request from Sponsor, (v) failure to timely complete the Winner Documentation and/or background check documents, (v) failure to pass the background check to Sponsor’s full satisfaction, (vi) the provision of false, incomplete and/or misleading information to or about Sponsor, (vii) the commission of any fraud or deception in connection with the Sweepstakes, use of the Website, and/or relationship with Sponsor, (viii) acting in an obnoxious, threatening, abusive, or harassing manner, at any time before or during the awarding of the Prize, in whole or in part; (ix) Winner’s inability to timely accept the Prizes for any reason, and (x) the inability of Sponsor to timely award or otherwise fulfill the Prizes, due to circumstances beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control, including legal restrictions, Acts of God, natural disasters, pandemics/epidemics, terrorism, weather.

If a Potential Winner or Winner is determined to be ineligible and/or disqualified, an alternate Potential Winner may be randomly drawn from among the remaining eligible entries. Any alternate Potential Winner will be notified as per the procedures outlined in the Official Rules (time permitting). Sponsor reserves the right to modify the Winner notification and/or confirmation and verification procedures connected with the drawing of an alternate Potential Winner, if any.

If a Winner chooses to reject or otherwise forfeits some or all of the Prizes, Sponsor shall have no obligation to award the abandoned or unclaimed portion of any Prizes to an alternate winner. 

8. Prizes: Subject to any restrictions expressly stated in the Official Rules, Winners will receive the Prize(s) identified on the Sweepstakes webpage (each a “Prize”). Sponsor shall solely determine the specifics of all elements of all Prizes (including timing for fulfillment of Prizes). The approximate retail value of any Prize will be specified in the Sweepstakes Rules. Winners are responsible for ensuring they timely and fully accept the Prize at the specified Prize location(s) and within the specified Prize fulfillment period.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all Prizes are awarded as is, without any representations or warranties, and cannot be transferred, sold, substituted, or redeemed for cash by Participant. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prizes may be subject to availability restrictions in certain jurisdictions based on licensing, import, or distribution regulations or other legal restrictions. In such circumstances, the Winner may be required to take a cash alternative instead. Some restrictions may apply.

Unless otherwise noted in the Sweepstakes Rules, Winners are solely responsible for all taxes, costs, and fees associated with Prize receipt, ownership, and/or use. Winners may be required to complete and return an IRS W-9 form, W8-BEN, or other applicable forms (i.e., Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification).

All Winners are entitled to refuse to accept any Prize that they are eligible to receive and, in such instances, will be deemed to have forfeited the Prize.  If Winner is deemed to have forfeited a Prize, in whole or in part, Winner will not be entitled to any alternate Prize or other compensation of any kind.

Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual tampering, or attempting to tamper, with the administration and/or operation of the Sweepstakes, including without limitations the entry process or the Prize Winner draw process.

13. Binding Arbitration, NO CLASS ACTION: Please read this section carefully. Participant understands and agrees that (s)he waives his/her right to sue or go to court to assert or defend his/her rights connected with participation in the sweepstakes.

As a condition of participation, Participant and Sponsor agree that any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of or connected to the Sweepstakes, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this arbitration provision, (each, a “Claim”) shall be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration under the procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules”), using the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures when applicable. The JAMS Rules are available at


Participants may seek arbitration of a Claim by contacting Analytical and Diagnostic Solutions, LLC, Attn: Randy Jackson, 704 4th St. #2, Brookings, SD 57006. The arbitration may be conducted via telephone, written submissions, or in-person in a mutually agreed location. The arbitrator shall be selected according to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. When practical, the arbitrator should have prior subject matter knowledge and familiarity with sweepstakes and/or fundraising laws. The arbitrator shall apply South Dakota law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. The arbitrator shall provide a decision explaining his or her findings and conclusions, and the ruling may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding upon the Parties.

The Parties will equally split the arbitrator’s fees and expenses, and each party shall pay its costs and attorneys’ fees. If the claimant can demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deem necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Notwithstanding, if any party prevails on a statutory claim that affords a prevailing party attorneys’ fees and costs, or if there is a written agreement providing for attorneys’ fees and costs, the arbitrator will award such costs and fees per the applicable statute or written agreement. The arbitrator shall resolve any dispute regarding the reasonableness of any fee or cost that may be awarded under this paragraph.

To the extent permitted by law, the existence of the arbitration, the arbitration proceedings, and the outcome of the arbitration will be treated as confidential and will not be disclosed by either party. Participant and Sponsor agree that an award, and any judgment confirming it, only applies to the arbitration in which it was awarded and cannot be used in any other proceeding except to enforce the award itself and any post-arbitration action seeking to enforce an arbitration award or action seeking equitable or injunctive relief shall be brought exclusively in the courts in Brookings County, South Dakota, or the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota.

If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek temporary or emergency equitable relief to enforce its rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. For any Claims brought by that are not subject to arbitration, if any, Participant and Sponsor each: (i) submit that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any such proceeding will be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within Brookings County, South Dakota (the “Venue”), (ii) waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the Venue is not appropriate or convenient; and (iii) waive any and all rights to trial by jury for any Claims.


14. Governing Law: All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of the Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of Participants and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, United States federal law and the laws of the State of South Dakota, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof.


15. Participant’s Personal Information: Information collected from Participants is subject to the Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, available at

16. Results: For a list of winners available after the announcement, email with the subject line “Winners List Request.” A list of winners will only be available for 90 days.
