Overview of Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Board

The Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Panel (“Advisory Panel”) is a program sponsored by Driscoll’s Strawberry Associates, Inc. (“Driscoll’s,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) through which individuals (“Members”) can receive savings coupons for telling us about their experiences with Driscoll’s products. 

Membership and participation in the Advisory Panel are subject to these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”).  By signing up and participating in the Advisory Panel, you accept and agree to these Terms.  We reserve the right to modify or amend these Terms from time to time without notice.  Your continued participation in the Advisory Panel following the posting of changes to these Terms will be your acceptance of those changes.

These terms are in addition to the Terms of Use, which govern your use of the Driscoll’s website.


To become a Member and participate in the Advisory Board, you must register and create an account (“Account”) at  By creating an Account and/or participating in the Advisory Panel, you represent that you are eligible for participation and you consent to Driscoll’s processing of data you submit to us as a result of your involvement with the Advisory Board.  You further agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Advisory Panel’s account registration process and (b) maintain and promptly update your information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete at all times during your membership.  An individual may only create and maintain one Account.  You are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your Account and you agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security of which you become aware.

To be eligible for membership and to participate in the Advisory Board, you must:

  • be over eighteen (18) years old;
  • have purchased qualifying Driscoll’s products; and
  • reside in the United States or Canada.


Members may log into their Accounts and follow the posted instructions to take satisfaction surveys regarding their experience with Driscoll’s products.  In order to take a survey, you must have purchased and consumed a qualifying Driscoll’s product, which will contain a 16-digit code ending in DSA# or DS## (a “HarvestMark”) and can be found at the bottom of the package of each qualifying product.  Each satisfaction survey will prompt you to provide the HarvestMark.  Please note that not all Driscoll’s products carry a HarvestMark.  You may only complete one survey per qualifying Driscoll’s product, and you may not complete more than two surveys per day. 

Upon your completion of a survey, you may be entered into a sweepstakes or other contest for a chance to win prizes from Driscoll's.  Such sweepstakes or contest will be subject to separate rules that will be made available at the time of entry and will be subject to your agreement.

Conduct and Submissions

You agree that you have all necessary rights and licenses to any information you submit to Driscoll’s through participation in the Advisory Panel, including, but not limited to, photos, recipes, and reviews.  Your participation and any submissions will comply in all respects to the requirements contained in the Terms of Use, and of particular relevance as part of the Advisory Panel, you will not:

  • harm or threaten to harm Driscoll's, Driscoll’s personnel, other Members, or any other individual;
  • upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, hateful, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable or harmful as determined by Driscoll’s in its sole discretion;

  • ·violate or infringe anyone's intellectual property rights, rights of publicity or rights of privacy.

Coupon Redemption

Upon completion of each survey, Driscoll’s will send a coupon that can be printed out and used when purchasing Driscoll’s products.  The link will be sent to the email address associated with your Account.  You have thirty (30) days from receipt of the link to access and print the coupon, and then thirty (30) days from the date the coupon was accessed to redeem it.  You may only obtain one coupon per completed survey, and you may only print and redeem each coupon once.  Coupons may only be printed on compatible, non-public printers.  Multiple printing and/or redemptions of the same coupon are express violations of these Terms.  Driscoll’s has no obligation to replace or honor coupons or links to coupons that have expired.  Coupons will not be available through any other mechanism (e.g., Driscoll’s will not mail, fax or otherwise make coupons available to Members).

The value of the coupon obtained for completion of a survey may vary depending on the number of surveys you had previously completed since January 1st of the same year.  At the conclusion of each calendar year, your completed survey counter is reset to zero.

Each coupon you receive as a result of your participation in the Advisory Panel may contain additional Terms and Conditions which are included on the coupon itself.  You agree to be bound by such Terms and Conditions to the extent that they are applicable to you.


Driscoll’s may suspend or terminate your Membership and/or Account in our sole discretion in the event that (a) we believe that you have violated these Terms; (b) we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us; (c) we believe that your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability for our customers or to us; (d) your Account is inactive for a period of ninety (90) consecutive days; or (e) for any other reason or for no reason.  Similarly, Driscoll’s may suspend or terminate the Advisory Panel program in its entirety at any time.  In the event of such program termination, the coupon redemption rules above still apply.

Limitation of Liability

In no event will Driscoll’s, or any of its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, affiliates, agents, successors or assigns, nor any party involved in the creation or provision of the Advisory Panel, be liable to you or anyone else for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages (including, without limitation, those resulting from lost profits or business interruption) arising out of the participation, inability to participate, or the results of participating in the Advisory Panel (including where Driscoll’s modifies or terminates the Advisory Panel altogether), any websites associated with the Advisory Panel, or the materials, information, products, services, and coupons provided in connection with the Advisory Panel, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.  The foregoing limitations of liability do not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.


Information collection and use, including the collection and use of personally identifiable information, is governed by our Privacy Policy which is incorporated into and is a part of these Terms.
