Overview of Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Panel
The Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Panel (“Advisory Panel”) is a program sponsored by Driscoll’s, Inc. (“Driscoll’s,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) through which members of the Advisory Panel (collectively, “Advisory Panel Members,” and individually, a “Advisory Panel Member”, “Member,” or “you”) can earn Consumer Advisory Panel Rewards (“Rewards”) by participating in online surveys.

Membership and participation in the Advisory Panel are subject to these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) as set out below unless otherwise expressly stated. The Terms govern Driscoll’s relationship with Members of the Advisory Panel, including how Members manage their accounts, participate in Advisory Panel, earn and redeem Advisory Panel points (“Points”) to exchange for Rewards. By signing up and participating in the Advisory Panel, you accept and agree to these Terms. 

Except as otherwise expressly prohibited or limited by applicable laws, Driscoll’s may at any time amend, modify, or supplement the Terms, and the structure for earning Rewards at any time with or without notice, even though such changes may affect the value of Points or the ability to obtain certain Rewards. If the Advisory Panel is terminated, all unredeemed Points and Rewards will be forfeited without any obligation or liability, and no Points claims, and Rewards claims will be honored after the conclusion of the notice period.

Members are responsible for remaining knowledgeable of the Terms and any program rule changes. Your continued participation in the Advisory Panel following the posting of changes to these Terms will be your acceptance of those changes.
