BY ENTERING INTO THE NON-RECURRING PREMIUM ZONE CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES, YOU AGREE THAT YOUR ENTRY AND THE PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE NON-RECURRING PREMIUM ZONE CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES WILL BE SHARED WITH THE SPONSOR. SPONSOR’S USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO THE SPONSOR’S PRIVACY POLICIES AT THE LINKS PROVIDED BELOW.
THE NON-RECURRING PREMIUM ZONE CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES ARE IN NO WAY SPONSORED, ENDORSED, ADMINISTERED BY OR ASSOCIATED WITH FACEBOOK, INC., INSTAGRAM, INC., YOUTUBE, INC., TWITTER, INC., OR LINKEDIN CORPORATION, EVEN THOUGH SPONSOR MAY PROMOTE AND ADVERTISE THE NON-RECURRING PREMIUM ZONE CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES USING SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANY OF THE FOREGOING PLATFORMS.
Who We Are: Zingeroo, Inc. (“Sponsor”) is a technology company that offers investors a competitive, social trading platform where they can track performance on individual trades in the stock market. The trading platform is accessed through Sponsor’s mobile application, (the “Zingeroo App”). Among Sponsor’s various unique offerings through the Zingeroo App are “Premium Zones,” where, based upon the parameters of the particular Premium Zone, either the entire portfolio in an investor brokerage account (each, a “Portfolio”), or certain positions and trades in an investor brokerage account, compete against those of others during a certain time period. Generally, in these Premium Zones, the highest Weighted Average Performance (as defined below) during the applicable time period wins the Premium Zone. “Weighted Average Performance” means the total dollar change among positions that are entered into the Premium Zone based upon the price at the start of the Premium Zone and the final price when the Premium Zone ends, or when a position is sold. Sponsor offers recurring Premium Zones that recur on a regular basis (e.g., monthly) as well as one-time, non-recurring Premium Zones (each one-time, non-recurring Premium Zone a “Non-Recurring Zone”). These official rules (the “Official Rules”) govern the contest and sweepstakes associated with Non-Recurring Zones only. Sponsor’s other contests and sweepstakes, including those related to recurring Premium Zones, are governed by their own official rules.
Eligibility: The Non-Recurring Zone Contests and Sweepstakes are void where prohibited by law. You must (i) be a legal resident of the United States, (ii) be 18 years or older at the time of entry, and (iii) possess a valid form of identification in order to enter (“Eligible Participants”).

With respect to the Contest portion, the Contest shall require that not less than ten (10) Eligible Participants enter. In the event the number of Entrants (as defined below) is less than ten (10) upon expiration of the Contest Period, Sponsor reserves the right to cancel the Contest and refund the entrance fee to all Entrants.

You may not enter more times than indicated by using multiple e-mail addresses, identities, devices, or a virtual private network in an attempt to circumvent the rules. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the rules, your submission may be removed from eligibility, and, in the event that you have a brokerage account with Sponsor’s affiliate, Z-Squared, Sponsor, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, may liquidate all of the positions that you have in, and close, your brokerage account with Z-Squared. Entries that are incomplete or do not adhere to the entry form’s specifications or these Official Rules may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
How to Enter the Sweepstakes:
There are two (2) methods of entry to the Sweepstakes. First, you may be entitled to automatic entries if you have previously been awarded them through the Contest portion of this promotion, in accordance with these Official Rules.
If you have not been awarded automatic entries into the Sweepstakes as a winner of the Contest and have an active, unrestricted Z-Squared brokerage account, then you may enter the Sweepstakes in an alternative manner (the “Alternative Method of Entry” or “AMOE”) by sending via United States Postal Service Mail your name, address, email address and phone number on a 3”x5” card, to 90 Canal Street, Suite #443, Boston, MA 02114, Attention: Zingeroo March Madness Redemption Non-Recurring Zone Sweepstakes.

All Eligible entries to the Sweepstakes must be received by the Sponsor no later than the last day of the Sweepstakes Period. All entries received after the last day of the Sweepstakes Period will be ineligible for participation in the Sweepstakes. If the Sponsor does not receive an entry for any reason, such entry will be invalid and will be ineligible to receive the Prize (as defined below). Unless you have been granted entry by virtue of winning a contest sponsored by Sponsor, entry into this Sweepstakes is limited to one (1) entry per person. Entrants may not create multiple entries through use of multiple email addresses, identities, devices, or a virtual private network in an attempt to circumvent the rules. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the rules relating to entering the Sweepstakes, your entry may be removed from eligibility, and, in the event that you have a brokerage account with Sponsor’s affiliate, Z-Squared, Sponsor, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, may liquidate all of the positions that you have in, and close, your brokerage account with Z-Squared.
If you are an Eligible Participant and have entered the Sweepstakes in one of the above manners, you will be deemed an “Entrant” in the Sweepstakes.
How to Win the Contest:
The objective of the Contest is to achieve the highest Weighted Average Performance of your Portfolio positions and trades only in equities, options and exchange traded funds out of all other Entrants participating in the Non-Recurring Zone during the Contest Period. Entrants who do not enter any positions into a Non-Recurring Zone shall be ineligible to win a Prize. The performance of any position that was subject to a mandatory corporate action, including but not limited to buybacks, identifier changes, issuer name changes, liquidations, mergers, reverse splits, spinoffs, splits or takeovers, during the Contest Period of the March Madness Redemption Non-Recurring Zone will be disregarded and excluded in the calculation of Weighted Average Performance. Any change to an Entrant’s Weighted Average Performance after expiration of the Contest Period will not be included in an Entrant’s rank. Weighted Average Performance shall be based on an Entrant’s Portfolio positions and trades only in equities, exchange traded funds and options, as indicated in the Non-Recurring Zone requirements. An Entrant’s Weighted Average Performance may differ from actual performance. Please be sure to review the Non-Recurring Zone requirements prior to joining the Non-Recurring Zone and engaging in any trading activity on the Zingeroo App. To achieve the objective, Entrants may access the Zingeroo App to buy and sell stocks and options available on the Zingeroo App. All activities must be done in accordance with these Official Rules, the Non-Recurring Zone requirements available to each Eligible Participant prior to joining the Non-Recurring Zone, and the Customer Agreement. Sponsor is not responsible for any errors, technical difficulties, or other issue related to any transaction as it relates to an Entrant’s performance. Remedies, if any, shall be provided in a manner as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.
Contest Prizes and Odds: The prize for winning the Contest (each, a “Contest Prize”) is in the form of automatic entries into the Non-Recurring Zone Sweepstakes. WINNING ENTRIES INTO THE SWEEPSTAKES BY BECOMING A WINNER OF THE CONTEST DOES NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL WIN ANY SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE, OR THAT YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING A SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE WILL BE GREATER THAN IF YOU HAD ENTERED THE SWEEPSTAKES BY OTHER METHODS OF ENTRY.
The number of entries to the Sweepstakes granted to Winners of the Contest shall depend upon the Winner’s overall placement in the Contest. To see how many entries to the Sweepstakes each Winner shall be entitled to receive, visit the Non-Recurring Zone on the Zingeroo App and select the tab called “Sweepstakes.” There you will find a table of Sweepstakes entry distributions to the top 20% of Contest Entrants.
Odds of winning the Contest are dependent on the number of Entrants that have entered the Contest. The Prize must be accepted as awarded and no substitution, transfer, conversion or assignment of the Prize is allowed. The Prize is not redeemable for cash and cannot be used for any purpose other than entrance into the Sweepstakes. In the event of unavailability of the Prize or any part thereof, the Sponsor may substitute an alternative prize of equal or greater value at its sole discretion.
Contest Prizes are automatically awarded to the Contest Winners. Contest Winners may access the Zingeroo App at any point following the expiration of the Contest Period to see if they are a Contest Winner and the number of Sweepstakes entries awarded to them. ANY VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES BY A CONTEST WINNER (AT SPONSOR’S SOLE DISCRETION) WILL RESULT IN THE CONTEST WINNER’S DISQUALIFICATION AS A WINNER OF THE CONTEST, AND SPONSOR MAY CHOOSE AN ALTERNATE CONTEST WINNER IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION.
Selection of Contest Winners: Entrants may view the standings at any time during the Contest Period by accessing the Zingeroo App and selecting the Non-Recurring Zone. The top 20% of Contest Entrants with the highest standings and ranks (each a “Contest Winner”) shall be announced on April 14, 2023 through the Zingeroo App and/or by e-mail.
How to Win the Sweepstakes:
On or about April 14, 2023 (the “Drawing Date”), the Sponsor will select one (1) or more winners of the Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes Winner”) to receive the Sweepstakes Prize (as defined below) by selecting an eligible entry at random from the pool of Entrants. If a Sweepstakes Winner cannot be contacted, fails to return the required documents in the required time as provided herein, refuses or is unable to accept the Sweepstakes Prize, or is otherwise in violation of these Official Rules, the Sponsor shall select another Sweepstakes Winner, in accordance with the terms of the previous sentence, to replace the Sweepstakes Winner originally selected. Each Sweepstakes Winner will be contacted through the Zingeroo App or via email.
For clarity, when used herein “Winner” means either a Contest Winner, a Sweepstakes Winner, or both, and may refer either to the single or plural form, as dictated by the context.
Sweepstakes Prizes and Odds:
The prize or prizes awarded to one (1) Sweepstakes Winner or to more than one Sweepstakes Winner shall include the following item or items, with a total estimated retail value of all of the combined prizes, of $250.00 USD (the “Sweepstakes Prize”):
- One or more shares, or a fraction of a share including less than one share, of the Invesco QQQ Trust Exchange Traded Fund (ticker symbol: QQQ)
The odds of being selected as a Sweepstakes Winner depend on the number of eligible entries received. The Sweepstakes Prize must be accepted as awarded and no substitution, transfer, conversion or assignment of the Prize is allowed. The Sweepstakes Prize is not redeemable for cash. In the event of unavailability of the Sweepstakes Prize or any part thereof, the Sponsor may substitute an alternative prize of equal or greater value at its sole discretion.
THE SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE SPONSOR TO THE SWEEPSTAKES WINNER “AS IS.” THE SPONSOR DOES NOT MAKE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS, ANY WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE SWEEPSTAKES PRIZE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED OR STATUTORY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
