documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of
the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission. 

   

6. Grand Prize Drawing/Requirements of Potential
Winner: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose
decisions as to the administration
and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner 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 the Promotion Period, on or
around November 8, 2021. The potential winner will be notified by @fanta on Twitter via Direct Message (if following @fanta) or via a
reply to the potential winner’s Tweet (if not following).  A reply will instruct the potential winner to
follow @fanta within two (2) days of the date of the reply so he/she can be
Direct Messaged.  Via Direct Message, the
potential winner will be directed to a secure online claim form and asked (or parent/legal guardian
if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) to provide his/her name, email
address, and date of birth to confirm eligibility and for prize fulfillment purposes
within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent into order
to claim the prize. The potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is
a minor in his/her state of residence) 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 five (5) days of the date notice
or attempted notice is sent, in order to
claim the prize.  If a potential
winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to follow @fanta or fails
to sign and return the Declaration or
provide any other requested information within the required time
period, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner
forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is
contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  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.  The prize will be fulfilled approximately 8
to 10 weeks after winner confirmation is complete.

the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is
impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud, outbreak
of widespread illness, pandemic, or other similar occurrence, civic unrest, virus
or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either:
(a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the
Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official
Rules; or (b) cancel the Sweepstakes and, in its discretion, award the prizes
in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the time of
the impairment. The 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
undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of
criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be
made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to
the fullest extent permitted by law. The 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; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in

in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human

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, 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 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.

12. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees
that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or

awards for, and entrant hereby waives all 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
