reviewed for content, and any containing such prohibited content and/or otherwise
deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to be inappropriate will be void and the
related entrant disqualified. Sponsor makes the final determination as to what
posts are eligible to take part in the Sweepstakes. By entering, entrants agree that
all posts become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
By posting an entry, each entrant warrants that it is created by the entrant and
grants Sponsor the perpetual, unlimited and irrevocable right to re-post, publish,
adapt, edit, make derivative works, and/or otherwise use the post in any manner,
for any purpose and in any media now known or hereinafter developed. Sponsor

sublicensable, revocable right to use its trademarks solely for the limited purpose of
including them in the Video submitted in conjunction with this Sweepstakes; such
right and license will automatically expire without further act of any party at the
expiration of the Promotional Period. Any other use of Sponsor’s and/or its

intellectual property rights.

4. ADDITIONAL TERMS:
Sponsor may prohibit an entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said entrant is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes by cheating, hacking, deception, or other unfair practices (including the use of automated quick entry programs) or intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrants or Sponsor or its agents, or if entrant has or has attempted to submit malicious code, .exe files, or any file that contains malicious code.
Twenty prize winners (“Prize Winner(s)”) will be selected in a
random drawing from among all eligible entries received during the Promotional
Period. The drawing will be held after the Promotional Period’s conclusion.
Random selection will be under the supervision of Sponsor, whose decisions are
final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. The selected Prize
Winners will be notified on or before April 30, 2015. If any selected Prize Winner is
found to be ineligible or cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, such
Prize Winner may be disqualified and an alternate Prize Winner may be selected
from the remaining eligible entries by random drawing, all as determined by
Sponsor in its sole discretion. Odds of winning depend on the actual number of
eligible entries received as of expiration of the Promotion Period. Prize Winners
will be subject to verification.
Twenty winners will receive one year of postpaid monthly wireless
phone service for one line from T-Mobile, with an Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”)
of up to $960 (precise ARV is based on the specific wireless plan selected by each
Prize Winner) (hereinafter “Prize”).
Total ARV of Sweepstakes is up to $19,200.
The Prize consists solely of the Prize Winner’s postpaid wireless service and does not include wireless service taxes and fees, nor does it include device purchase, deposits, add-on features, or overage charges, if applicable. If a Prize Winner is an existing T-Mobile postpaid phone subscriber at the time of drawing, his/her Prize will be based on his/her monthly wireless service at the time of drawing, however s/he may use the Prize to upgrade his/her service to a more expensive plan (up to the $80 per month Simple Choice plan). If a Prize Winner is not an existing T-Mobile postpaid phone subscriber at the time of drawing, s/he may select a postpaid Simple Choice phone plan option (ranging from the $50 to $80 per month Simple Choice plan). The Prize will be warded as a one-time bill credit that will appear on the Prize Winner’s bill within 2 bill cycles after Prize redemption. The bill credit amount will be based on the monthly recurring charge associated with the Simple Choice plan selected by the Prize Winner at the time of Prize redemption. Prizes are transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. If the Winner, or the person using Winner’s Prize, terminates his/her T-Mobile service prior to the 12-month time frame, s/he will not be entitled to a refund of any portion of any unused Prize funds. All users of T-Mobile’s wireless service are subject to T-Mobile’s Terms and Conditions (including arbitration provision), located at www.t-mobile.com/terms. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Winners are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.
ALL PRIZES ARE AWARDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE). The Released Parties, individually and collectively, are not responsible for any injuries or loss to Prize Winner(s) in using the Prize.
7. CLAIMING PRIZE/RELEASES:

return all Prize Claim Documents by the deadline designated in the Prize Claim

selected. By accepting the prize, Prize Winner(s) further acknowledges that the
Sponsor and any other entity involved with this Sweepstakes have neither made,
nor are in any manner responsible or liable for, any warranty, representation or
