A. Overview of STOUFFER’S® Dinner Club Program
STOUFFER'S® Dinner Club Program (the "Program") is a loyalty program sponsored by Nestlé USA through which individuals ("Participants" or, individually, the "Participant") can collect points ("Points") from advertisements and by purchasing specially marked STOUFFER'S® products that will contain a code inside the packaging, available while supplies last, or through other methods as may be added from time to time. Participants can then visit http://dinnerclub.stouffers.com (the "Web site") to have their accounts credited with the Points they have collected. Participants may use their Points to purchase items through the rewards catalog ("Rewards Catalog").
B. Participation in the Program
1. The Program is void where prohibited by law. Open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older. The Program is sponsored by Nestlé USA, Solon, OH 44139 ("Sponsor" or "Nestlé") and administered by ePrize, LLC, One ePrize Drive, Pleasant Ridge, Michigan 48069 ("ePrize" or "Adminstrator").

3. Participation in the Program constitutes each Participant's full and unconditional agreement to these Rules, and representation that Participant meets the eligibility requirements set out in these Rules. Those who do not comply with these Rules may be prohibited from participating in the Program.
C. Modification and Termination of the Program
1. By participating in the Program, you hereby agree that Sponsor may modify any of the Rules governing the Program at any time (including, without limitation, these Rules), with or without notice, even though these changes may affect a Participant's ability to use accumulated Points.
2. The Program began on or about June 6, 2007 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") and is currently scheduled to end on or about July 31, 2014 11:59 p.m. ET ("Program Period"). Sponsor, however, may terminate the Program at any time, with or without notice, even though termination may affect a Participant's ability to use accumulated Points. Sponsor reserves the right to extend the Program Period in its sole discretion.
3. A Participant's continued participation in the Program constitutes his or her acceptance of any changes to these Rules.
D. Collecting Points
1. Registration. To enroll, a participant must click on the "Create one now" button and follow the on-screen instructions to create a STOUFFER'S® Dinner Club account ("Account") or log in using an existing Stouffers.com account. An individual must have a unique valid e-mail address to create an Account. Limit one (1) Account per person and per e-mail address, regardless of whether more than one person uses the same e-mail address. The person who is the authorized e-mail account holder of the e-mail address indicated when registering (and who otherwise meets the eligibility criteria) will be deemed the Participant.
Once participants register their existing Stouffers.com account or register for a new account, they will be enrolled in the Program. The number of points collected by such Participant will be recorded and tracked in the Participant's Account. Participants will receive two (2) codes upon registration which can be found in the Dinner Club Hub. Once a Participant deposits a code into his/her account, he/she will receive twenty (20) Points.
2. Unique Codes. Collect unique codes ("Codes") from advertisements and specially marked STOUFFER'S® products during the Program Period, or other methods, available while supplies last. Visit the Web site and follow the links and instructions to enter your Code. For each entered Code, you will automatically receive a certain number of Points corresponding to the Code you enter. Limit: Each participant may enter up to ten (10) Codes per day during the Program Period. For purposes of this Program a "day" shall be 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") through 11:59 p.m. ET. Each specially marked STOUFFER'S® product purchased contains a Code worth twenty (20) Points, and Participants will be credited twenty (20) Points for each specially marked STOUFFER'S® product purchased and for which a Code is recorded on the Web site during the Program Period. Sponsor reserves the right to change the number of Points awarded for purchases at any time during the Program, and the right to change, add or remove the methods by which Participants can collect points.
3. Participant Accounts. Sponsor will attempt to credit Participant Accounts with Points on a timely basis. However, each Participant will have the responsibility of ensuring that his/her Points are properly credited. Any claim for Points not credited accurately must be received by Sponsor within six (6) days of the date of claimed accrual of such Points. Sponsor shall have no liability for any printing, production, typographical, mechanical or other errors in the Points summaries or Accounts. Sponsor reserves the right to invalidate Points from an Account if it determines that such points were improperly credited to such Account or obtained fraudulently. Sponsor reserves the right to require proof of accrual of Points and Sponsor reserves the right to delay the processing or redemption of any Points without notice to Participants, in order to assure compliance with these Rules. Participants are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their Accounts and passwords and for restricting access to their computers and activity on their account, and Participants agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under their Accounts or passwords. Without limiting any other remedies, Sponsor may suspend or terminate a Participant's Account if Sponsor suspects that a Participant has engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Program. Participation in the Program is subject to these Rules, as well as policies and procedures that Sponsor may adopt or modify from time to time. Any failure to abide by these Rules or any policies or procedures implemented by Sponsor, any conduct detrimental to Sponsor, or any misrepresentation or fraudulent activities in connection with the Program may result, in addition to any rights or remedies available to Sponsor in law or equity, in the termination of participation in the Program, as well as forfeiture of Points accrued to date and any other benefits earned in connection therewith, in Sponsor's sole discretion.
4. Illegible Codes. If you cannot read a Code or a Code is destroyed when opening a package, please send an e-mail to Customer Service using the Contact Us link at http://dinnerclub.stouffers.com. Customer Service will provide you with instructions on how to proceed. After contacting Customer Service for more than ten (10) Codes per month, Sponsor may require proof including, but not limited to, the product packaging of all damaged Codes.
5. No Cash Value or Transferability. Points do not constitute property, do not entitle a member a vested right or interest and have no cash value. As such, Points are not redeemable for cash, transferable or assignable for any reason, and are not transferable upon death, as part of a domestic relations matter or otherwise by operation of law. The sale of Points is strictly prohibited. Any Points remaining in a Participant's Account at the end of the Program Period will be forfeited without compensation. There shall be no carry over or transfer of Points to other Sponsor programs, or extensions of the Program beyond the Program Period, unless otherwise determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion.
6. Code Verification. Participants must save the STOUFFER'S® product packaging with a Code for at least 30 days after the Bidding Period (see Section F.2, below) closes for any item which Participant wins during the Program, as it may be necessary to submit it later for verification. Sponsor reserves the right to require proof including, but not limited to, the product packaging. Sponsor's decisions regarding the awarding of Points are final and binding. Validated codes that are subsequently determined to be invalid for any reason are subject to disqualification and the corresponding Points will be removed from the Participant's Account to which the invalid points were credited.
7. Account Inactivity and Code Expiration If a Participant has failed to login to the Dinner Club Program after a period of four (4) months, Participant will receive an e-mail asking him or her if they are still interested in participating in the Program. One (1) month after the 4-month reminder e-mail was sent, Participant will receive a second e-mail, informing him or her that if he or she fails to login within the next one (1) month, his/her points will be forfeited. Should there still be no activity in the account following the second 1-month period described in the second email (in other words, after the 6-month mark), all of the Participant's accumulated Points will be forfeited without compensation.
