6. Grand Prize Drawing & Winner Requirements: Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with
these Official Rules. Administrator
is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the
Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in
all matters related to the Sweepstakes.
Administrator will randomly select the
potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion
Period, on or around October 6, 2021. The potential winners will be notified by
@BedBathandBeyond as a private message. It
may be necessary to initially notify the potential winners as a reply to their
winning comment, asking them to send a private message to @BedBathandBeyond within
two (2) days to enable @BedBathandBeyond to send a private message with prize
claim instructions.  Potential winners will be directed to a secure website
and be required to provide his/her name, date of birth, valid email address, phone,

notice is sent in order to claim the prize. Upon
completion of the online claim form, the potential winner will also be required
to sign and return a Declaration of
Compliance, Liability Waiver and, where not prohibited, a Publicity Release (“Declaration”),
which must be received by Administrator within three (3) days of the date notice
or attempted notice is sent, in order to
claim the prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to complete the online form, or sign and return the
Declaration within the required time periods, the potential winner forfeits the
prize.  In the event
that the potential winner forfeits the prize or is disqualified for any
reason, Sponsor will award the prize to
an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Only three (3) alternate
drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.

10. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel,
suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, if any fraud, technical failures, human
error, or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes,
or any event or cause beyond Sponsor’s control (e.g. events such as natural
calamities, national emergencies, widespread illnesses, declarations of war,
acts of God, acts of terrorism) interferes with any aspect of the Sweepstakes, including
but not limited to fulfillment of the prize(s), as determined by Sponsor in its
sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold
a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance
and may modify the prizes offered herein. Sponsor reserves the right, in its
sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the
entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of
the Official Rules of this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or
disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate
operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the
right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that provision.

 

11. Limitations
of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect
or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by
any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes;

lost, not received, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy
is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible.
No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.  In the event that production,
technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated

un-awarded, eligible prize claims.

shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of
