HOW TO ENTER
- How to Enter. There is no purchase necessary to enter the Campaign. Making a purchase will not improve your chances of winning. All entries must be submitted online. To enter the Campaign, visit https://schutz-shoes.com/pages/donate-and-get (the “Landing Page” or “LP”). Once you’re on the LP, follow the instructions on the web page to complete the entry form in its entirety and submit your entry. You’ll be asked to provide your name, email address and mobile number. You will also be required to provide a photograph of the shoes you intend to donate. The shoes you intend to donate must be in good condition and be a brand other than Schutz. We reserve the right to reject any entry if the shoes are not compliant with our guidelines.
We will collect, store and use the information you provide in your entry to operate and administer the campaign and also for those purposes described in the following section. Limit one entry per Entrant. Please do not attempt to submit additional entries using multiple email addresses or you will be disqualified. Please provide an accurate email address, as we will use this to contact you if you are selected as a potential winner.
- Personal Information.
- If you are selected as a Winner, we may also disclose (i) your first and last name, city and state of residence via social media and our website(s) as one of the Winners of the Campaign; and (ii) your first initial, last name and city and state of residence to any third-party who requests that we provide them with a Winner List.

HOW TO WIN; ODDS OF WINNING.
- We will pick the first 500 (five hundred) entries from the pool of valid and eligible entries. This selection will happen until December 11th, 2020. Upon fulfillment of the criteria set forth in these Rules (and in particular those set forth in this section), we will confirm the 500 distinct participants that will receive a code to redeem a free shoe in our website. Sponsor does not guarantee that any individual Entrant will become the Winner.
- We will notify winners via the email address he or she provided in his or her entry. The winners may be required to execute and return, within seventy-two (72) hours of notification, an affidavit attesting to his or her eligibility, a liability waiver and an IRS W-9 form (where applicable) to be confirmed as a Winner (all such documents, the “Additional Documents”). The Additional Documents will require the potential winner to furnish his/her social security number for the sole purpose of tax reporting, as required by law. The Additional Documents must be signed and returned by the date indicated in the communication with which they are provided, or the potential winner will be disqualified.
- If a potential winner cannot be contacted by the information provided in his or her entry, fails to sign and return the Additional Documents within the required time period (as applicable) and/or the potential winner is otherwise disqualified as permitted in these Rules, the potential winner forfeits the free shoe code.
- After receiving the Additional Documents, we will send each winner a prepaid printable label to send the shoes each winner is donating. Once the shoes are shipped using the provided prepaid label, we will provide a voucher to redeem the free pair of shoes from select styles.
- Each pair of shoes will be donated to Soles4Souls (https://soles4souls.org/). Each winner’s donation is not eligible for any tax deduction for the winner. We may receive a tax deduction for donating the shoes the winners send to us. Ultimate acceptance of any donated shoe is in the sole discretion of Soles4Souls and we cannot guarantee than any donated shoe will be accepted.
- Receiving the Free Shoe Code is contingent upon compliance with these Rules. If a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate winner will be selected, by order of registration/subscription, from among all remaining eligible entries in the manner set forth above. This includes, but is not limited, if a selected winner does not send the shoes photographed to Schutz in a timely manner or sends different shoes not pictured in the photograph submitted by the winner.
- No one is a Winner unless and until the Sponsor officially confirms him/her as a Winner in accordance with these Official Rules.
- The Prizes. We will award 500 (five hundred) unique discount codes with an individual discount of $ 120 (one hundred and twenty dollars) each. Each code can be applied only once in the website checkout page to grant this exact discount when placing an order with one of the specific shoe styles available in the SCHUTZ DONATE AND GET collection page (https://schutz-shoes.com/collections/donate-and-get ).
- Receiving the Prize. Once the winners are confirmed, we will make contact electronically, through the email address provided in the registration process. This may happen within one (1) to five (5) day after the end of the SCHUTZ DONATE AND GET campaign period. All discount codes will be informed via email. Once having access to the discount code, the winner will have to access the link informed in the email, in the section indicated as “CHOOSE YOUR FREE SHOE”. This access will redirect the winner to the SCHUTZ DONATE AND GET collection page, where the winner can choose one (1) style, in the color and size available in the moment he/she accesses the page, but supplies are limited for each style, color, and size. After selecting the choice, the winner must complete all required information to complete the order and then inform the discount code in the field that requires this information. The discount code must be informed the same way it was informed in the received email. For last, the winner must complete the transaction by clicking on the “PAY NOW” button. No shipping fee will be charged. If no other products are selected except the one (1) chosen in the SCHUTZ DONATE AND GET collection page, then the placed order will be free of charges. Payments must only be made in case:
- The winner selects more than one (1) product
- The winner selects a product not eligible for this campaign
- The winner selects a product priced over $ 120 (one hundred and twenty dollars)
- Taxes are applicable
- Additional Restrictions, Terms and Conditions for Prize Redemption.

Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute the Prize or component thereof of equal or greater value if the Prize or component thereof cannot be awarded for any reason. Any costs or expenses relating to the Campaign, the Prize or the redemption of the Prize are the responsibility of the Winner. We do not guarantee inventory availability in all sizes and colors for the chosen shoe style during the selection. Winners must consider the current availability when choosing the shoe style.
