SHOWSTOPPERS TERMS AND CONDITIONS

YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE SHOWSTOPPERS PROGRAM (“SHOWSTOPPERS”) CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SHOWSTOPPERS AS SET FORTH IN HEREIN.  ShowStoppers, which is brought to you by the Sony Card Marketing and Services Company, a division of Sony Electronics Inc. (“Sony”), is a program in which Sony Rewards members can bid and redeem their Sony Rewards points (“Points”) for exciting adventures, experiences, goods and special offers (each referred to herein as a “Award”) through auctions (each an “Auction”) that will take place on the ShowStoppers portion of the Sony Rewards website (the “ShowStoppers Website”).

ShowStoppers is part of the Sony Rewards loyalty program, and participation in ShowStoppers is exclusively for Sony Rewards members who have a valid Sony Rewards account (“Account”) and the capacity to enter into legally binding agreements. To enroll in Sony Rewards, to obtain a user name and password, or for complete details about the Sony Rewards loyalty program, please go to www.SonyRewards.com/join.

The terms and conditions (the “ShowStoppers Rules”) set forth herein apply to participation in ShowStoppers, and the use of the ShowStoppers Website. SUCH RULES ARE IN ADDITION TO, AND NOT A SUBSTITUTION FOR, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THE SONY REWARDS MEMBER AGREEMENT WHICH CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.SONYREWARDS.COM/EN/FOOTER/TERMS OF USE.  In addition, an Auction may have unique bidding instructions and rules, such as an age restriction, which will be outlined in the Award description. Although these rules refer to the term "Auction," it is important to note that Sony is not an "auctioneer" in the traditional sense.

1. Access to and Acceptance and Use of the ShowStoppers Website

1.1. Acceptance of Terms and Conditions. By accessing the ShowStoppers Website, making transactions through it, and specifically by clicking “PLACE BID”, you expressly indicate your acknowledgment and acceptance of the ShowStoppers Rules. The information and Award descriptions published on the ShowStoppers Website may include inaccuracies or typographical errors, and Sony and its affiliates specifically disclaim any liability for such inaccuracies and errors. Sony, in its sole discretion, may amend, modify, correct, remove, change or supplement these ShowStoppers Rules and any other terms and conditions applicable to ShowStoppers, the ShowStoppers Website, any Award and/or any Auction, including, without limitation, to correct any typographical errors, and/or to change or amend an Award description or the opening bid price for an Award, and your continued participation will constitute your acceptance of any such amendment, modification or supplementation.

1.2. Acceptance of Electronic Communication. By participating in ShowStoppers, you hereby consent to receive electronic communications regarding Showstoppers, including the Auction process and different Awards from Sony and third-parties involved in ShowStoppers whether addressed to the email address associated with your Account or any other email address that you provide to Sony in connection with Showstoppers. You acknowledge and agree that any communication via email or postings on the ShowStoppers Website satisfies any legal requirements that such communications be made in writing.

1.3. Use of the ShowStoppers Website. You may only use the ShowStoppers Website to make non-commercial, legitimate Award purchases. You shall not use ShowStoppers or the ShowStoppers Website for any other purposes. You may not resell or barter any Award purchased through ShowStoppers. You also may not use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the ShowStoppers Website, including to bid on any Auction. Sony reserves the right to disqualify any ShowStoppers participant who tampers with or abuses any aspect of ShowStoppers, or who fails to comply with these ShowStoppers Rules. In addition, Sony reserves the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for any misuse of ShowStoppers, the ShowStoppers Website or any Awards and/or for any violations of these ShowStoppers Rules, including the right to block access from a particular internet address, to exclude any individual from accessing the ShowStoppers Website and/or to terminate an individual’s membership in the Sony Rewards loyalty program.

1.4 Use of your Information. You authorize Sony and its affiliates to consider any person using your Account and correct password a legitimate user, and you agree to accept responsibility for all Award purchases and other activities that occur under your Account. You are responsible for restricting access to your Account and password to prevent unauthorized access to the ShowStoppers Website, and to ensure that your Account information is not used illegally or in a manner in which you would not agree.

2. Awards

2.1 Award Descriptions. Through ShowStoppers, Sony allows you to bid for and purchase, in an auction-style format, Awards using Points. For each Award, the ShowStoppers Website will contain a complete description of the Award and any specific requirements for the Award’s Auction, including, without limitation, any minimum bid requirements, eligibility criteria, the date and time at which the Auction for the applicable Award will start and end, bid increments for the applicable Auction, which may depend on Award value, redemption restrictions (e.g. blackout dates), fees and taxes, shipping and handling costs, and all other applicable terms for the Award and the applicable Auction, all of which will be established by Sony. For certain Awards which are experiences, the Award winner must agree that Sony may take pictures and/or videos of the winner participating in the applicable Award experience, and may use, reproduce, copy, publish, distribute, modify and otherwise exploit such pictures and/or videos in any manner and in any media now known or hereafter devised, that it sees fit, without compensation to you. In addition, costs and expenses not specifically mentioned as being included as part of an Award are the sole responsibility of the Auction winner(s). Such costs and expenses may include, but are not limited to, travel insurance, room service, meals, unspecified ground transportation, gratuities, personal items and government fees. All Awards made available through ShowStoppers are being auctioned and sold "AS IS" without warranties of any kind, unless expressly stated in the Award description. All Awards, including the availability thereof, are subject to change, and if any Award becomes unavailable for any reason after an Auction’s end, Sony reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute a substantially similar item or refund Points and if applicable, amounts paid for Points by the winning bidder(s). Such refund shall be your sole remedy in the event of Award unavailability. Awards will only be awarded and delivered to the winner(s) after the applicable bid amount has been paid and settled in accordance with Section 2.3.

2.2 Awards Provided by Unaffiliated Entities. Certain Awards may include goods, services and/or experiences that have been provided to Sony from unaffiliated third-parties. If an Award includes such goods, services or experiences, such information will be disclosed in the Award description. Inclusion of such items in ShowStoppers does not imply any endorsement, sponsorship or affiliation between Sony and such third-party, and Sony, its subsidiaries and affiliates are not responsible for any goods, services and/or experiences of such third-parties. In addition, in certain instances Sony only provides the access and the technical platform for you to redeem an Award directly from a third-party. You acknowledge that in such circumstances separate terms and conditions of the relevant third-party may apply to the Award redemptions. You agree to abide by such terms and conditions, including but not limited to, rules and restrictions on availability, shipment and delivery terms, notification of defects and claims for damages. Neither Sony nor its affiliates become party to the transaction between you and the third-party.

2.3 Award Payment and Redemption. For each Award, you may purchase the Award for the amount of Points indicated on the ShowStoppers Website at the Auction’s close. In the event that you do not have enough Points in your Account at the time you bid on the Award, you may provide Sony with a valid credit card on which you may purchase the additional Points needed in the event that you are an Award winner, provided, however, that you must have at least the minimum number of Points indicated in the Award description in your Account at the time when you bid on an Award, provided, further, that for certain Auctions, you will not be permitted to purchase Points. In addition, all Points in your Account must be used to bid on the Auctions that you are bidding on prior to purchasing Points using a credit card. Points are purchased during the check-out process. In the event that you provide a credit card on which Points may be purchased, a hold will be placed on that credit card for the amount needed to purchase the required Points. (Points are purchased at $.01 per Point.) Such hold will continue until you are either outbid for the applicable Auction or you win the Auction, in which case your credit card will be charged for the purchase of the Points. In the event that you are the highest bidder for an Auction, or one of the highest bidders in the case of a Multi-Award Auction, the Points required for such Award will be deducted from your Account immediately upon completion of the Auction, and if applicable, as indicated above, your credit card will be immediately charged for the number of Points necessary to purchase, when combined with your existing Points, the Award. In the event that Sony cannot put a hold on your credit card, you will not be able to bid with Points to be purchased. You cannot bid with Points that are accrued, but are not yet credited to your Account at the time you bid on an Award. In the event that Points have not been properly debited from your Account upon completion of an Auction, Points can be debited by Sony at any time.

2.4 Shipping and Handling of Awards. Awards, and related Award documentation, including any special fulfillment instructions, will be sent, in Sony’s sole discretion, by email to the email address on your Account or an email address that you provide when you enter a bid, to the physical address associated with your Account or to such other address as explicitly provided for a specific Auction or Award. Delivery dates cannot be guaranteed and Sony and its affiliates assume no liability for failed deliveries caused by incorrect addresses, absence of the recipient, force majeure or other reasons not under the control of Sony. Award, and related Award documentation, can only be shipped to addresses in the United States, but cannot be delivered to P.O. or A.P.O. boxes. If you want to ship to an address other than the address associated with your Account, please update the shipping information during the online bid process. Addresses cannot be changed after an Award has been confirmed.

2.5 Refunds and Returns. All purchases made through ShowStoppers are final and except as indicated in these Rules, Points are not refundable once redeemed. Awards may not be returned or exchanged except in Sony’s sole discretion. In the event that an Award is damaged or defective upon initial delivery, Sony, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to replace the Award with a similar Award of equal or greater value or re-deposit the Points you used to bid on the Award into your Account, and if applicable, refund your credit card for Points purchased. In the event that Sony decides not to replace the Award with a similar Award, your sole remedy is a refund of Points used and if applicable, amounts paid for Points.

3. Auctions

3.1 Minimum/Maximum Bids. Each Auction will have a minimum opening bid, which will be the least number of Points that you can bid on an Award, and minimum increments in which the bidding must increase. Auctions may also have a “Buy Now” bid price, the price at which you may immediately purchase the Award, or, if it is an Auction with multiple Awards, the number of Awards associated with the applicable Auction.

3.2 Eligibility. Certain auctions and at times the “Buy Now” feature may be available only to Sony Rewards Members who hold a current outstanding Sony Card or PlayStation® Card (both referred to herein as “Card”). In such event, the rules for the applicable Auction will indicate this restriction.

3.3 Bidding. For each Award that you wish to bid on, you must go to the Award’s Auction page, and enter, where indicated, the maximum number of Points that you wish to bid, which is the highest price in Points you are willing to pay for the Award, whether through already accumulated Points or if permitted, accumulated Points and purchased Points as indicated in Section 2.3 of these Rules. You must then agree to abide by these Rules and click the “Place Bid” button. Once you confirm your bid it will be placed, and once placed, a bid cannot be cancelled or retracted, provided, however, that a bid is not considered "placed" until you see the Bid Confirmation page for the applicable Auction. If for any reason the bidding process is interrupted or the Bid Confirmation page is not displayed, you must resubmit your bid. You can check if your bid has been placed by going to the “Auction Details” page of the applicable Auction. If a bid is “placed” after an Auction’s bidding period has elapsed, such bid is not eligible. Decisions as to what constitutes a qualifying bid and when a bid is placed shall be determined by Sony, in its sole discretion. Once placed, ShowStoppers will store your maximum bid amount and will automatically place an initial bid on your behalf, to the extent that your bid is more than the then current winning bid. A bid will then be placed on your behalf only when it is needed to maintain your position as an Auction’s winning bidder, and is placed only up to your maximum bid amount. If you are the highest bidder but another Auction participant bids higher than your maximum bid, that bid will become the highest bidder and you will not win the Auction. You will be notified by email if have been outbid. (In the event that you are out-bid, you may increase your bid by placing a new higher bid.)

3.4 Multi-Award Auctions. A Multi-Award Auction is when more than one (1) of the same Award is listed for an Auction. In a Multi-Award Auction bidders may not bid on more than one (1) Award in the Auction. The winners of a Multi-Award Auction are those bidders with the highest bid amounts at the time of Auction close, up to the available quantity of Awards for the Auction. Each winner of a Multi-Award Auction will pay the amount that caused such person to be one of the highest bidders in such Multi-Award Auction, and thus, there is a possibility that not all winners of a Multi-Award Auction will pay the same amount for the Award.

3.5 Bidding on Multiple Auctions. You may not bid on multiple auctions unless you have a sufficient number of Points in your Account. Specifically, you must have enough Points in your Account to fulfill your entire bid on one Auction prior to bidding on a second Auction, and so on. Once you use Points to bid on an Auction, a hold will be placed on such Points until you are outbid on the applicable Auction.

3.6 Winning Bid(s). The winner(s) of each Auction will be determined by Sony, or its designee, in its sole discretion based upon the highest bid (or highest bids in the case of a Multi-Award Auction) received prior to the final closing time of the applicable Auction. Should your bid be determined to be a winning bid, this will constitute a legally binding contract between you and Sony. For each Auction, the first name and last initial of the potential winner(s) of the Auction will be indicated on the ShowStoppers Website. If you are a potential winner, you will receive notification of your potential winning bid via telephone, email or mail, as determined by Sony in its sole discretion. Such notification will contain Award details and any special fulfillment information. If you are a potential winner, immediately upon completion of the Auction the number of Points equal to the winning bid, and not your entire maximum bid if it is greater than the winning bid amount, will be deducted automatically from your Account. As indicated in Section 2.3, in the event that you do not have the necessary number of Points, your credit card will immediately be charged. Each Auction winner explicitly agrees that the number of Points invested in the respective Auction and such winner’s first name and the first initial of such winner’s last name can be displayed on the ShowStopper Website following the Auction. The winning bidder must comply with all terms and conditions of these ShowStoppers Rules and applicable to the relevant Award.

3.7 Ineligible Winner. A potential winner will only become an actual winner once Sony has verified such potential winner’s compliance with these ShowStoppers Rules. In the event that (i) Sony determines, in its sole discretion, that a potential winner was not eligible to participate in an Auction, (ii) a potential winner is expelled from participating in an Auction, or (iii) for any other reason a potential winner is disqualified from an Auction, Sony may make the decision to give the next highest bidder(s) the opportunity to be the winner of the Award, re-run the Auction or cancel the Award. In such event, the potential winner’s Points (and if applicable, amounts paid for Points) will be refunded.

Employees of Sony Electronics Inc. (“Sony”), its advertising or promotion agencies, those involved in the production, design, printing, development, implementation or handling of the Showstoppers, any agents acting for, or on behalf of the above entities, their respective parent, subsidiary, affiliated and related companies, officers, directors, licensees, service providers, any other person or entity associated with the applicable Showstopper (collectively “Showstopper Entities”), members of their immediate families (spouses, domestic partners, children, siblings, parents), and/or persons living in the same household as such persons, whether or not related, are ineligible to participate in the Showstoppers.   

4. Winner’s Circle. The ShowStoppers Website contains a section in which Sony and/or any Auction winner may upload content and/or pictures that relate to the Auction winners experience with ShowStoppers and specifically, with the Award. Anything uploaded to and/or included in the Winner’s Circle becomes the property of Sony. By uploading content onto the Winner’s Circle, you grant Sony an exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable license and right to (i) use, reproduce, copy, publish, distribute, adapt, modify and otherwise exploit what you upload to the Winner’s Circle, and (ii) incorporate what you upload in other works in any manner and in any media now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe in perpetuity, which media may include, without limitation, any website of Sony or a Sony affiliate, any Facebook page of Sony or an affiliate of Sony or YouTube.

In addition, images uploaded to the Winner’s Circle should not contain the phone number(s), address, email address or other personally identifiable information of any person. You understand that you will not receive any compensation in connection with Sony’s use of anything that you upload to the Winner’s Circle.

5. Sharing of Information. In order for Sony to process any Award, you will have to provide Sony with certain personal information, including your name, home and email address, phone number and, if paid partially in cash, credit card information. By providing such information to Sony, you consent to Sony’s sharing of that information with third party providers as necessary to process the Award. Sony shall not be liable for any incorrect personal information received or obtained from you. Except as indicated in this section, the data collected through the ShowStoppers Website is governed by the Sony Rewards Privacy Policy.

6. Limitation of Liability. In addition to the Limitation of Liability set forth above, if the performance of any service or obligation of Sony or any third-party making an Award available through ShowStoppers, including with respect to any live experience, is prevented, delayed, restricted or interfered with by events or causes beyond their control, Sony or the applicable third-party shall be excused from the performance to the extent of the prevention, delay, restriction, or interference. You agree that if any of these prevent you from participating in a live experience, Sony or the applicable third-party is not obligated to provide or recreate such live experience and Sony reserves the right, in its discretion, to substitute a substantially similar experience or refund the Points bid by the winning bidder. In the event that Sony decides not to substitute a substantially similar experience, your sole remedy is a refund of Points used and if applicable, amounts paid for Points.
