Entries will not be acknowledged or returned. By entering the Sweepstakes, entrants understand and agree that they will be automatically opted-in to Sponsor’s email list to receive email announcements and special offers from Sponsor, and that the Sweepstakes entry overrides any previous option to opt-out of receiving marketing materials but entrant will always have the opportunity to opt-out of future emails. Information collected from entrant’s entry may be used by Sponsor to notify you if you are a winner. Failure to comply with these instructions, provide required information, or abide by these Official Rules will result in disqualification. Failure to provide true and accurate information will automatically disqualify you from participating in the Sweepstakes. Entry into the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and location) are void. Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, or misdirected entries, for technical, hardware or software failures of any kind, for lost or unavailable network connections, or for failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions or any human error which may occur in the receipt or processing of the entries. Proof of entering information at the Website does not constitute proof of delivery or receipt. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the scheduling of the Sweepstakes without prior notification. Use of computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic, automatic and other similar means to enter the Sweepstakes is prohibited and may result in the disqualification of the entrant. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the e-mail account is registered to on the date the entry is submitted. The Website database clock will be the official time keeper for this Sweepstakes. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.
- THE DRAWING. Potential winners will be selected at a commercially reasonable time after the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing from all eligible entries received by Sponsor, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. Entrants need not be present to win. Sponsor will notify the potential winners at a time that is commercially reasonable thereafter. The potential winners will be notified via email. Potential winners have three (3) days to respond to Sponsor. In the event a potential winner does not respond within three (3) days of notification, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify the potential winner and randomly choose an alternate potential winner from the remaining eligible entries. Entrants’ odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. If a dispute arises over entitlement to the Prize (as defined below), the winner is the person to whom the e-mail account was assigned by the appropriate agency, internet service provider, business, or organization. Winners may be required to provide a valid, government-issued form of identification that matches the name under which the winner entered. If any Prize, Prize notification or Sweepstakes-related communication is lost, rejected, faulty, or returned as undeliverable or if a winner cannot be reached after a reasonable attempt has been made by Sponsor (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), that winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Sweepstakes Rules or declines the Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward to claim the Prize in excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Sweepstakes Rules, the winner, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised Prize may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for the Prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
