Official Rules for ZenPlus Social Media Giveaways

Created 9/10/2021 11:31:51 AM in giveaway | zenplus |

These rules apply to ZenPlus social media giveaways that are not governed by or operated using third-party services that have their own set of Official Rules (such as Gleam). 

Social Media Giveaways (As of October 2021)


No purchase necessary to enter or win. Making a purchase or payment of any kind will not increase your chances of winning. Void where prohibited or restricted by law.


This prize sweepstakes (“Giveaway”) begins from the time of the Giveaway announcement and ends at the time specified in the Giveaway announcement (the “Promotion Period”), subject to availability.

The sponsor of this Giveaway is ZenPlus via ZenMarket, Inc. (“Sponsor”). By participating in the Giveaway, each Entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor is responsible for the collection, submission, or processing of entries and the overall administration of the Giveaway, unless in collaboration with a third party influencer (“Collaborator”) at its discretion.

Entrants should look to Sponsor or Collaborator with any questions, comments, or problems related to the Giveaway. Sponsor may be reached by social media direct message (“DM”) or by the contact form at Sponsor’s homepage (http://zenplus.jp) during the Promotion Period.


Giveaway is open to legal residents worldwide who are of legal adulthood (“Entrants”). Sponsor, and its respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies and each of their respective officers, directors and employees (the “Promotion Entities”), are ineligible to enter the Giveaway or win a prize.

Household Members and Immediate Family Members of such individuals are also not eligible to enter or win. “Household Members” shall mean those people who share the same residence at least three months a year. “Immediate Family Members” shall mean parents, step-parents, legal guardians, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, or spouses. This Giveaway is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, and is void where prohibited or restricted by law.


Prizes cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted by the winning participant or participants (“Winner” or “Winners”). Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to award a substitute prize of equal or greater value if a prize described in these Official Rules is unavailable or cannot be awarded, in whole or in part, for any reason.

Sponsor makes no representation or warranty concerning the appearance, safety or performance of any prize awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. Sponsor will not replace any prize items that are lost, stolen, or returned to Japan by the country to which they were delivered. 
All federal, state and/or local taxes, fees, and surcharges (including, but not limited to, customs) are the sole responsibility of the Winner(s). Failure or refusal to comply with the Official Rules will result in forfeiture of the prize.


Enter the Giveaway by satisfying all entry criteria as specified in the initial (and any subsequent) Giveaway announcement during the Promotion Period.

Automated or robotic entries submitted by individuals or organizations will be disqualified. Internet entry must be made by the Entrant. Any attempt by Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, logins, or any other methods (including, but not limited to, commercial contest or sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering services), will void Entrant’s entries and that Entrant may be disqualified.

Final eligibility for the award of any prize is subject to eligibility verification as set forth below. All entries must be posted by the end of the Promotion Period in order to participate. Sponsor’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Giveaway.


Winner(s) will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received throughout the Promotion Period. The random drawing will be conducted after the end of the Promotion Period by Sponsor or its designated representatives, whose decisions are final. Odds of winning will vary depending on the number of eligible entries received worldwide.


Winner(s) will be informed initially by social media DM, upon which Sponsor may request and/or conduct further communication by email for privacy and security purposes (both initial DM and subsequent email hereafter referred to as “Notification”). Potential Winner must accept prize(s) as directed by Sponsor within the acceptance timeframe (“Timeframe”) specified in the Notification. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or failure to receive Notification for any reason, including technical difficulties and inactive or unmonitored email accounts.

Notifications returned as undeliverable or otherwise not responded to by a specific cutoff date (to be decided at Sponsor’s discretion) may result in prize forfeiture. The potential Winner(s) may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and release of liability, and a Publicity Release (collectively the “Prize Claim Documents”). No substitution or transfer of a prize is permitted except by Sponsor.


Any personal information supplied by Entrants will be subject to the privacy policy of the Sponsor (https://zenplus.jp/privacy). By entering the Giveaway, you grant Sponsor permission to share any applicable personally identifiable information with the other Giveaway Entities for the purpose of administration and prize fulfillment, including use in a publicly available Winners list.


Sponsor assumes no responsibility or liability for:

  • (a) any incorrect or inaccurate entry information, or for any faulty or failed electronic data transmissions;
  • (b) any unauthorized access to, or theft, destruction or alteration of entries at any point in the operation of this Giveaway;
  • (c) any technical malfunction, failure, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or communications line failure, regardless of cause, with regard to any equipment, systems, networks, lines, satellites, servers, camera, computers or providers utilized in any aspect of the operation of the Giveaway;
  • (d) inaccessibility or unavailability of any network or wireless service, the Internet or website or any combination thereof;
  • (e) suspended or discontinued Internet, wireless or landline phone service;
  • or (f) any injury or damage to Entrants or to any other person’s computer or mobile device which may be related to or resulting from any attempt to participate in the Giveaway or download of any materials in the Giveaway.

If, for any reason, the Giveaway is not capable of running as planned for reasons which may include without limitation, infection by computer virus, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which may corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Giveaway, the Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Giveaway in whole or in part.

In such an event, Sponsor shall immediately suspend all drawings and prize awards, and Sponsor reserves the right to award any remaining prizes in a manner deemed fair and equitable by Sponsor. Sponsor and Released Parties shall not have any further liability to any Entrant in connection with the Giveaway.


This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with the social media platforms on which it appears. Entrants are subject to the applicable social media platform’s data policy and terms of use.
