4. How to Enter: There
are two (2) ways to enter the Sweepstakes:

(a) Via Email Invite from Hidden Valley Ranch:  During the Promotion Period, if you receive an original email invitation from Hidden Valley Ranch, follow the links and instructions in the email and take the survey. After you have completed the survey, you may opt-in to this Sweepstakes by agreeing to these Official Rules. You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. (b) Via Website:  During the Promotion Period, go to and then follow the links and instructions to create or sign into your Ranchology™ Rewards account and take the survey. After you have completed the survey, you may opt-in to this Sweepstakes by agreeing to these Official Rules. You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes.

Limit: You may enter one (1) time during the Promotion Period regardless of method of entry.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Ranchology™ Rewards account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than one (1) entry by using multiple/different email addresses, Ranchology Rewards accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate or subvert the entry process is prohibited and will result in disqualification and all associated entries will be void. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register or connected to the Ranchology™ Rewards account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant and he or she must comply with these Official Rules. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

6. Drawings: 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 winner from all eligible entries received during each Entry Period on or about the dates set forth in the chart in Section 3 above. Non-winning entries from Entry Period 1 will not carry over into the subsequent Entry Period. Each potential winner will be notified by email. Each potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will 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 five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration within the required time period, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable 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 applicable prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of winner confirmation. 

7. Prizes: TWO (2) GRAND PRIZES (ONE (1) AWARDED PER ENTRY PERIOD): A $1,000 check payable to winner. Approximate Retail Value: $1,000.

For All Prizes: Prizes are non-transferable,
and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. 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. Each winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number
of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. Total value of all prizes: $2,000. Limit: one (1) prize per person.

discretion.  In such event, Sponsor, in
its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all
non-suspect eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any

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

Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages (including attorneys’ fees and other
remedies) 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.
