Each entrant should review all personal information entered for accuracy purposes and make all corrections necessary to inaccurate data before submitting his/her entry. For purposes of this Sweepstakes, an entry is “received” when Sponsor actually receives the completed entry form. All entries must be received by Sponsor during the Sweepstakes Period or they will be void. Proof of sending (such as an automated computer receipt confirming entry or “thanks for entering” screen or message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of an entry.

Limit one (1) entry per person and per email address. All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will neither be acknowledged nor returned. Those who do not provide the required entry information in their entry form or abide by these Official Rules and other instructions of Sponsor and its representatives may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be disqualified and all associated entries void. Purported entries that are forged, altered, incomplete, lost, late, misdirected, mutilated, illegitimate, incomprehensible, garbled, or generated by a macro, bot, or other automated means will not be accepted and will be void. Entries or participation made on your behalf by any other individual, made by any entity or group, or originating at any web site other than the Sweepstakes Site, including, without limitation, through commercial promotion subscription notification or entering services, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes.

The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet Service Provider, online access provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.

The drawing will take place about fourteen (14) business days of the close of the Sweepstakes Period. Decisions of the Sponsor are final on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes, including interpretation of these Official Rules, determining the winners, and awarding of the prizes.

The Prize Winner Documents, if applicable, must be received by Sponsor within three (3) business days of Sponsor sending the documents to the potential winner or other time frame as stated in the Prize Winner Documents, or prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If any prize, prize notification, or other Sweepstakes-related communication is returned as undeliverable, or if a selected winner cannot be reached or does not respond as instructed after Sponsor has attempted to notify that potential winner, that selected winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting and in Sponsor’s sole discretion). Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential winner, if any. The prize claim and Prize Winner Documents are subject to verification by Sponsor. The prizes, if legitimately claimed, will be awarded. Prize elements will only be mailed to the winner’s residence within the Territory, unless Sponsor, in its sole discretion, approves shipment elsewhere.
