THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO THE SWEEPSTAKES AND ARE PART OF THE FULL OFFICIAL RULES:
Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, stolen, misdirected, mutilated, incomplete, damaged, or postage due entries. No telephoned, faxed, or mechanically reproduced entries will be accepted. Receipt of entries will not be acknowledged nor will proof of submission of an entry be deemed proof of receipt. Sponsor has no obligation to advise an entrant of an incomplete or otherwise non-compliant entry. Use of automated entry systems and tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void. Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means will be disqualified.
In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the e-mail account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
Sponsor will use reasonable measures to verify the accuracy of the stories recorded for each child of an Entrant. Sponsor is not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate transcription of entry information or technical malfunction, lost or delayed data transmission, omission, interruption, deletion, malfunction of computer equipment, the inability to access any online services or for any inaccuracies in the tracking or recording of completed stories.
WINNER SELECTION. One (1) potential prize winner will be randomly selected on or about the Prize Drawing Date from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
Entrant that is selected as the potential prize winner will be notified by email according to the contact information provided by that Entrant. Please ensure email settings are set up to allow for receipt of email from Sponsor. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for undeliverable prize notification resulting from any form of active or passive filtering by Entrant’s email settings or for insufficient space in an Entrant’s user account to receive email notification.
Entrant that is selected as the potential prize winner must sign and return any required forms, including, without limitation, affidavit of eligibility, prize acceptance and liability and publicity release form and IRS-W9 forms (“Sweepstakes Forms”) to Sponsor within ten (10) days after delivery of the forms. Return of the above-mentioned Sweepstakes Forms within the allotted time is the sole responsibility of each prize winner; Sponsor is not responsible for delays in delivery. If prize notification is returned as undeliverable or if a potential prize winner fails to comply with these Official Rules, cannot be reached by Sponsor, or fails to return the Sweepstakes Forms within the time specified, that potential prize winner may be disqualified, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, and a new potential winner selected from among all remaining eligible entries, time permitting.
All prizes may not be awarded if an insufficient number of eligible entries is received. Sponsor shall not be required to award more than the stated number of prizes.
Sponsor makes no warranties, representations or guarantees relative to any prize, and disclaims all liability for the provision, use, quality or nature of any third party product or service provided to the winner. Prize winner is responsible for all taxes resulting from acceptance and use of the prize, and all costs and expenses not specified as part of the prize.
Employees, officers and directors (current and retirees) of Sponsor and its affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, associates, representatives, suppliers, and advertising and promotional agencies (“Sweepstakes Parties”), as well as members of their immediate families (defined as parents, spouses, children, siblings and grandparents) and individuals living in the same household as those individuals are not eligible to enter or win. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of each Entrant.
ADDITIONAL Limitations. Prizes are non-transferable. No substitution or cash equivalent of any prize is permitted; however, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with another of equal or greater value. Sponsor and its respective parent, affiliate and subsidiary companies, agents, and representatives are not responsible for any typographical or other errors in the offer or administration of the Sweepstakes, including, but not limited to, errors in any printing or posting of these Official Rules, the selection and announcement of any winner, or the distribution of any prizes. Any attempt to damage the content or operation of this Sweepstakes is unlawful and subject to possible legal action by Sponsor.
Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, suspend or amend the Sweepstakes, without notice, and for any reason, including, without limitation, if Sponsor determines that the Sweepstakes cannot be conducted as planned or should a virus, bug, tampering or unauthorized intervention, technical failure or other cause beyond Sponsor’s control corrupt the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper play of the Sweepstakes. In the event any tampering or unauthorized intervention may have occurred, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the Sweepstakes and void suspect entries at issue. Sponsor and its respective parent, affiliate and subsidiary companies, agents, and representatives, and any telephone network or service providers, are not responsible for incorrect or inaccurate transcription of entry information, or for any human error, technical malfunction, lost or delayed data transmission, omission, interruption, deletion, line failure or malfunction of any telephone network, computer equipment or software, the inability to access any website or online service or any other error, human or otherwise.
