NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT IMPROVE CHANCES OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. OPEN ONLY TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE 50 UNITED STATES, CANADA, AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA WHO ARE AT LEAST THE AGE OF MAJORITY AT THE TIME OF ENTRY. ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF ELIGIBLE ENTRIES.
By entering a sweepstakes (each, a “Sweepstakes“):
- you will be bound by and comply with these Official Rules for the Sweepstakes (“Official Rules”), which include the terms for the applicable Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes Terms”) as well as these General Terms and Conditions, and which together form a legally binding agreement between you and the Sponsor identified in the applicable Sweepstakes Terms;
- you represent that you satisfy all eligibility requirements; and
- you will comply with all applicable laws, rules, or regulations (collectively, “Applicable Laws“).
If you do not agree to these Official Rules, do not enter the Sweepstakes.
Sweepstakes Terms. The Sweepstakes Terms include various Sweepstakes-specific terms, including the identity of the Sponsor(s) and any administrator, information about the prize(s) and the approximate retail value of prize(s), how to enter, when and how winners will be selected, odds of winning, and the Sweepstakes Period (the start and end dates/times for the Sweepstakes). In the event of any conflict between the applicable Sweepstakes Terms and these General Terms and Conditions, the General Terms and Conditions will control.
Eligibility. Open to individual legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada who are at least the legal age of majority in their state or province and country of residence prior to the date of entry. Employees, representatives and agents of Sponsor, its affiliates and any third-party administrator or promotional partners, and their immediate family members and anyone domiciled with any of the above are not eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes.
All entries must be received during the Sweepstakes Period in order to be eligible. Limit one entry per person per Sweepstakes and entrant must use own email address. For avoidance of doubt, you may not enter multiple times using multiple accounts. All Sweepstakes entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Prize(s); Winner Selection & Notification of Winners; Conditions. Subject to these General Terms and Conditions, the Sponsor will award a prize to one or more individuals (as specified in the applicable Sweepstakes Terms) who will be selected at random from among all eligible entries received. If you are selected to be a winner, an e-mail notification or social media message will be sent to you (depending on the medium in which the Sweepstakes is taking place and/or how you entered). Each person selected to win must respond within seven (7) days of the notification being sent to them. Any Canadian resident selected to win a prize must correctly answer a time-limited math skill-testing question, in addition to otherwise satisfying all sweepstakes requirements, in order to be confirmed a prize winner. Each winner must provide any information required by Sponsor for delivery of any prize, including, if applicable, your shipping address.
Subject to these Official Rules, prize(s) will be fulfilled by the Sponsor. Each prize will be awarded only after (i) Sponsor’s receipt of the selected winner’s response and any required affidavit of eligibility, declaration of compliance, release and/or other documentation; (2) proper verification of the selected winner’s identity; (3) for Canadian resident(s), the correct answer to the math skill-testing question, all subject to selected winner’s compliance with the Official Rules. Return of the prize notification as “undeliverable” or any failure to respond or to return any required affidavit or other documentation in the time period provided above, or any other failure to comply with these Official Rules, will result in disqualification of the selected winner and forfeiture of the prize. Sponsor is not required to award elsewhere any prizes forfeited by the chosen winner. Sponsor is not responsible for any late, lost, stolen, damaged, delayed, or undelivered prizes.
Each winner will be solely responsible for paying any taxes and any other expenses incurred by the winner in connection with receiving the prize or participating in the Sweepstakes, including any income taxes, sales or use taxes, value added taxes, goods and services taxes, or harmonized sales taxes. Throughout the term of a Sweepstakes, and as a condition to receiving any prize, you will provide Sponsor with an affidavit of eligibility, declaration of compliance, release, and any other forms, documents, or certifications, including any that may be required for Sponsor (or its affiliates, any third-party administrator, or promotional partners) to satisfy any information reporting or withholding tax obligations with respect to any payments related to a Sweepstakes.
Each prize will be awarded “as is” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). If you win a prize, you may not transfer, assign, or redeem the prize for cash. The Sponsor may substitute a prize with a prize of similar or greater value.
Other Sweepstakes. By entering a Sweepstakes, you will not be automatically entered into or eligible to participate in or receive any prizes awarded in any other Sweepstakes. In order to enter multiple Sweepstakes, you must enter each Sweepstakes separately in accordance with the respective Sweepstakes’ entry and eligibility requirements.
Licenses to User-Generated Content; Rights of Publicity. By entering a Sweepstakes, you grant an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive license to Sponsor and its affiliates to use, reproduce, modify, distribute, display, publish and create derivative works of any content that you provide, make available, or upload to a social media platform in connection with a Sweepstakes (collectively, “User-Generated Content“) in whole or in part in all media now known or hereafter devised, throughout the universe, in any way Sponsor or its affiliates see fit. You consent to Sponsor and its affiliates doing or omitting to do any act that would otherwise infringe your “moral rights” in any such User-Generated Content and you waive in favor of Sponsors and its affiliates any moral rights you may have in such content. Display or publication of any User-Generated Content on Sponsor’s or its affiliates’ website or social media properties does not indicate that you will be selected as a winner. Sponsor and its affiliates will not pay any additional consideration, notification, or permission in connection with any use of any User-Generated Content. You represent and warrant that (i) you own all rights, including all intellectual property rights, in and to all of your User-Generated Content; (ii) you are the original author of all of your User-Generated Content; and (iii) you have all rights necessary to grant the rights you are granting herein, and such grants will not violate any agreements between you and any third party or violate any third party’s privacy rights.
You agree that, by entering a Sweepstakes, Sponsor and its affiliates may use, display, publish, or broadcast, the winner’s name, image, or likeness in any manner and in any medium for its promotional and advertising purposes without additional compensation, notification, or permission, including posting in a winner’s list, except where prohibited by law.
