decisions are final and binding in all matters related to

time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes.

 

4.
How to Enter: During the Promotion Period, go to www.Clorox.com/Support-Our-Teachers
and follow the links and instructions to complete and submit the registration
form, including your full name and valid email address.  You will receive
one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. 

 

Limit: You may enter one (1) time during the Promotion
Period.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to
share the same email address.  Any
attempt by any entrant to obtain
more than one (1) entry by using multiple/different email addresses,
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 is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder
of the email address used to
register will be deemed to be the entrant.  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.  Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

 

5.
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 winners from all eligible entries received
during the Promotion Period, on or around September 29, 2021.  The potential winners will be notified by email.  Each potential Grand Prize 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 seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize.  Further, each Grand
Prize winner will be required to designate a teacher, teacher’s aide, teacher’s
assistant, after school teacher or special education teacher at a U.S. K-12
public, private or Montessori school who is a legal resident of one of the
fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia and is at least eighteen
(18) years old at the time of designation (“Teacher”) and, with the Teacher’s
consent, provide the Teacher’s name, contact information, school name and
school address within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is
sent.  Each potential winning Teacher will
be required to sign and return a Declaration, which must be received by Administrator
within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order
to accept the applicable prize. A Teacher’s participation, prize acceptance
and/or prize receipt constitutes Teacher’s 
full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules. Each potential
First Prize winner will be required to provide his/her home mailing address (P.O. Boxes not permitted) and date of
birth to confirm eligibility and for purposes of prize fulfillment within seven
(7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner of any
prize or a Teacher cannot be contacted, fails to
sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within
the required time period, is disqualified for any reason, or the prize is
returned as undeliverable, the potential winner or the Teacher forfeits the applicable
prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent
upon compliance with these Official Rules. 
In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason or forfeits
the prize, Sponsor will make reasonable efforts to award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among
all remaining eligible entries.  If a Teacher
is disqualified for any reason or forfeits the prize, Sponsor will either, in
its sole discretion, request another designation by the applicable winner or
designate its own Teacher.

and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further
payment or consideration.

9. 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, pandemic,
wide spread illnesses, civil unrest, 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.

 

10. 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; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited
to malfunctions, interruptions, or
disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized
human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4)
technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the
Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (5) late, lost, undeliverable,
damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury
or damage to persons or property
which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from
entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.  If for any reason an entrant’s entry is
confirmed to have been erroneously
deleted, lost, 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 number of prizes as set forth in these Official
Rules to be available and/or
claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to
award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all
legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.

11. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant and
Teacher agree that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action

rights to claim, indirect, punitive,
incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for
actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to
have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. 
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity,
interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and
obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes,
shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State
of Michigan without giving effect to
any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Michigan or
any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any
jurisdiction other than the State of Michigan.
