Winner is subject to determination of eligibility and verification before the Prize (as defined below) will be awarded. By entering, all Entrants and winner agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and its authorized representatives are final and binding in all matters concerning this Sweepstakes. More than the stated number of allowable Entries per day is not permitted. If more 2 than one entry per day is received from one person, only the first entry submitted will be considered valid, however any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, and logins, cheating or fraud, through a sweepstakes club or similar entity, or any other unauthorized methods will void all Entrant’s Entries and Entrant will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Proof of Entry submission is not proof of its receipt by Sponsor. Only eligible Entries received by Sponsor during the Sweepstakes Period will be eligible for this drawing. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a participant, the Entry will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to an email address by an Internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address; or the “authorized account holder” assigned to a mobile cellular number if entry is via mobile URL. All Entries will be deemed to have been made by the authorized account holder. Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for late, lost, misdirected, incomplete, delayed, stolen, invalid, unintelligible, technically corrupted, or garbled Entries, which will be disqualified, or for any failure to capture Entries, or problems of any kind whether mechanical, human or electronic.
All Entrants and Entries are subject to verification prior to being declared a winner and receiving a Prize, as are the eligibility, age and other information provided by a potential winner. Sponsor reserves the right to and may conduct a voluntary background check on the potential winner, and such individual agrees to cooperate, to confirm eligibility and to help ensure that awarding a Prize to any such individual will not bring the Sweepstakes Entities into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Sweepstakes, the Sweepstakes Entities or their respective brands, goods or services, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In the event a potential winner refuses the voluntary background check, such refusal will cause the forfeiture of the Prize.
