Averitas Pharma, Inc., 360 Mt. Kemble Avenue, 3rd FL, Suite 3, Morristown, NJ 07960 (“Sponsor”), is solely responsible for all aspects of this contest (“Contest”).
During the period commencing at 12:00:00 AM EST on May 4, 2022, and ending at 11:59:59 PM EST on October 1, 2022 (“Entry Period”), you may enter this contest solely by completing an entry available on Sponsor’s website NervePainandMe.com/contest (the “Contest Site”). All entries must be submitted online on or before October 1, 2022, at 11:59:59 PM EST in order to be eligible for the contest. In order to participate in the Contest, you must submit a 4-10 letter mnemonic acronym for diabetic nerve pain, where each letter can represent key symptoms associated with the condition, important reminders about your health, and/or a call to action for patients to speak to a healthcare professional (a single “Entry”). Submissions should focus on symptoms of diabetic nerve pain of the feet, such as tingling, numbness, and burning sensations, as well as important next steps, such as controlling glucose levels, patient self-advocacy, and discussing potential solutions with a healthcare professional.
A mnemonic device is a memory aid or tool that helps people remember a concept or phrase by using a pattern of letters, ideas, or associations – such as F.A.S.T.E.R. (that is meant to help remember the symptoms of a stroke).
The Entry must be your sole, original work; must not have been submitted previously in a contest or competition of any kind; and must comply with all terms, conditions, and requirements of these Rules (collectively, the "Entry Requirements").
Entries must be made on an individual basis. Group Entries (ie, an Entry purporting to be submitted by two or more people) will be disqualified. Multiple Entries per person are permitted. An individual may only win one Grand Prize or Ancillary Prize. Open only to persons 18 years of age and older (or who have reached the legal age of majority in their state of residence) at time of submitting the Entry who are legal residents of, and physically located within, one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia (collectively, “Territory”). Employees, contractors, and agents of Sponsor, its affiliates, or successor entities (including immediate family members and members of the households of all such individuals) may submit Contest Entries but will be excluded from prize eligibility. This prohibition on eligibility extends to all advertising, promotional, or fulfillment agencies engaged by Sponsor in connection with this Contest (Sponsor and such agencies, collectively, referred to as the “Entities”). Entries from persons residing, or physically located, outside the Territory or who are under the age of 18, or the age of majority, will be disqualified. Neither the Entities, nor any of their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, or representatives (individually and collectively, “Releasees”) are responsible for Entries that are altered, delayed, deleted, destroyed, forged, fraudulent, improperly accessed, inaccurate, incomplete, irregular in any way, late, lost, misdirected, multiple, mutilated, non-delivered, stolen, tampered with, unauthorized, unintelligible, or otherwise not in compliance with these Rules; or for Entries that are not received due to interrupted or unavailable network, server or other connections, miscommunications, failed phone, computer hardware or software, telephone transmissions, garbled or jumbled transmissions, Internet connection or other technical failures, unauthorized human intervention, undeliverable emails resulting from any form of active or passive email filtering, insufficient space in Entrant’s email account to receive email, or other errors of any kind, whether due to electronic, human, mechanical, printing, production, or technical errors or other causes, even if caused by the negligence of any of the Releasees (each, a “Failed Entry”). Each such Failed Entry will be disqualified. This Contest is void where prohibited or restricted by law and subject to all applicable federal, state, local, and municipal laws and regulations.
The following grand prize will be awarded to the winner of the Contest (the “Grand Prize”): choosing between either a $1,000 VISA gift card or 2 passes to attend the 2023 American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) Pain Freedom Patient Conference in Denver, Colorado, including travel, lodging, and meal expenses up to a total of $1,500 (an estimated value of $2,000).

Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible Entries received. In the event an alternate potential winner needs to be selected (as provided below) the same procedures will be used to select any such alternate potential winner as soon as practicable.
