OFFICIAL RULES AND REGULATIONS
VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
The BizLink Incentive Campaign (the “campaign”) is sponsored by SECURA Insurance Company (“SECURA”).
- CAMPAIGN PERIOD: The “campaign period” will begin at 12:00 AM (midnight) CST on November 1, 2022, and will end at 12:00 AM CST on May 1, 2023.
ELIGIBILITY: The campaign is open only to SECURA-contracted and authorized Agencies (“Agency”) and their SECURA-appointed and authorized individual licensed agents (“Producer”). Agency must authorize participation in the campaign for itself or its producers, who will be the participant (or Agency may opt-out of participation in the campaign for itself and its producers).
A participant must remain an active SECURA Agency/Producer and in good standing as determined by SECURA throughout the campaign period and at the time of prize delivery to be eligible for a prize from the campaign.
Employees of SECURA and members of their immediate family (e.g., spouse, parent, child, sibling, and the “steps” of each) and persons living in the same household as each are not eligible to participate. All applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. Participation in the campaign by the participant constitutes participant’s full and unconditional agreement to these official rules and SECURA’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the campaign. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth in these official rules.
PARTICIPATION AND ENTRIES IN CAMPAIGN: For each Commercial and Specialty Lines account submitted and bound through BizLink during the campaign period (regardless of the effective date), participant will earn one entry to win one of the prizes listed below. One bound account (which includes all related policies for a single insured/account) = one entry.
After submitting their first BizLink account during the campaign period, participants will select the top three (3) prizes to which participant would like their entries allocated. All subsequent eligible BizLink bound accounts will receive an entry allocated to the same prize drawings. At the end of the campaign period, SECURA will place participant entries in each of the selected prize drawings. However, there will be no more than one prize awarded per participant; participant will be awarded and offered the first prize for which they are selected.
- WINNER SELECTION: On or about May 1, 2023, there will be a drawing from among all eligible entries. SECURA, or its authorized representative, will randomly select potential winners for each prize from all eligible entries. The potential winners will be provided with instructions on how to claim their prize as set forth in Rule 5 of these official rules, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these official rules. A potential winner who establishes they are an eligible participant and in compliance with these official rules is a “winner.”

DISPUTES: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the campaign shall be settled by binding arbitration in Outagamie County, Wisconsin in accordance with the rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”) then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply Wisconsin law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statues of limitations and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, SECURA will pay as much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that claim will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), 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. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor SECURA shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual agreement of the parties.
THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION SHALL BE IN THE PARTICIPANT’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPOTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. DO NOT ENTER THIS INCENTIVE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.
BY PARTICIPATING IN THE CAMPAIGN, EACH PARTICIPANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (1) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE INCENTIVE, OR ANY PRIZE AWARDED, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION AS SET FORTH ABOVE, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (2) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEY’S FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (3) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY PARTICIPANT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND PARTICIPANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES, AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (4) PARTICIPANT’S REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND PARTICIPANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO EVERY PARTICIPANT.

All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of the official rules, or the rights and obligations of participant and SECURA in connection with the campaign, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Wisconsin, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules thereof, and any matters or proceedings which are not subject to arbitration and/or for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall take place in a state or federal court.
