All Entries submitted or received past the expiration of the Entry Period will not be accepted and will be invalid. Receipt of Entries will not be confirmed.

Entries that are not complete or are corrupted are void and will not be eligible. Entries that do not comply with these Official Rules (“Rules”) as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion may be disqualified as Sponsor may determine in its sole discretion.
Any attempt to circumvent the Rules and/or to obtain more than one (1) Entry by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, aliases, and registrations or any other methods may result in the complete disqualification of all Entries by such individual as Sponsor may determine in its sole discretion. Automated means of entry and Entries by any means which subvert the entry process are prohibited, and all such Entries will be void.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, the Entry will be deemed submitted by the “authorized account holder” of the email address used to submit the Entry. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of any potential winner of the Sweepstakes.
AGREEMENT TO RULES: By submitting an Entry and participating in the Sweepstakes, you agree to be fully and unconditionally bound by these Rules, including the eligibility requirements set forth above, and to accept the decisions of Sponsor and/or Administrator as final and binding as they relate to the Sweepstakes.
WINNER SELECTION: The winner of the Sweepstakes (“Winner”) will be determined in a random drawing from among all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period, to be conducted by Administrator on or about October 29, 2019 (“Drawing Date”).
Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received during the Entry Period.
The potential Winner will be notified by email on or about the Drawing Date, and if the potential Winner does not respond within twenty-four (24) hours of notification by email, another potential Winner will be selected.
To be certified as the Winner and claim the Grand Prize, Sponsor will require the potential Winner to complete and sign an Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release and where imposing such condition is legal, a Publicity Release form and any applicable forms required by tax authorities which may require a social security number (collectively, the “Prize Forms”) and to return the Prize Forms to Administrator within twenty-four (24) hours of the date of notification. At Sponsor’s discretion, the Winner may be required to produce a picture or some other form of proper identification to claim the Grand Prize. Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for electronic communications which are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind or insufficient space in a potential Winner’s email account to receive email messages. Prize notifications that are returned as undeliverable will disqualify a potential Winner.
If a potential Winner declines or turns down the Grand Prize for any reason, cannot be contacted, fails to timely claim the Grand Prize in accordance with the provisions set forth above, is disqualified, or fails to timely execute and return the Prize Forms within the time frame specified above, an alternate Winner may be selected in a random drawing from all remaining eligible Entries. Sponsor may attempt to contact up to three (3) potential Winners under such circumstances, and if the Grand Prize remains unclaimed after such attempts have been made, the Grand Prize may go unawarded. Should a greater number of prize claims be received because of printing, emailing, phoning, messaging, or programming errors or for any reason whatsoever, only the Grand Prize and the value stated in these Rules will be awarded in the Administrator’s sole discretion.
Winner’s guest must also sign and return certain Prize Forms prior to travel and be at least twenty-one (21) years old as of the date of travel and a legal resident of the United States.
