Restrictions on Entry: LIMIT: One (1) Entry per person or email address, regardless of the
method of entry. In the event more than one (1) Entry is received from any one person or
email address, the first Entry processed will be considered the only valid Entry received. In
the event of a dispute, Entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the
email address listed at the time the Entry is submitted. The authorized account holder is the
natural person who is assigned to the email address by an internet access provider, online
service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses or the
domain associated with the submitted email address. Potential winner may be required to
show proof of being the authorized account holder. Any attempt by any participant to obtain

Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, incomplete,
illegible/garbled, jumbled, corrupted, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which
will be disqualified. Sponsor and Administrator will not accept submissions from wireless
domains, blacklist domains, or any email address Sponsor and/or Administrator deem to be
potentially harmful to the Website. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited
and will result in disqualification.
6. FINALIST SELECTION AND WINNER DETERMINATION: Three (3) potential Finalists for
the Grand Prize will be randomly selected on 7/3/21 at approximately 9:00 AM CDT from
among all eligible Entries received. Drawings and Grand Prize Finalist contact/verification will
be conducted by UniWorld Group, Inc. (“UniWorld”), an independent judging organization.
UniWorld will make one (1) attempt to contact each potential Grand Prize Finalist via the
cellular phone number provided on his/her Entry. No emails will be sent. If UniWorld is unable
to reach a potential Grand Prize Finalist within one (1) hour of initial phone call, prize will be
forfeited, and an alternate may be selected, time permitting. Potential Grand Prize Finalists
will be required to execute and return a Declaration of Eligibility and Liability and, unless
prohibited by law, a Publicity Release form (“Declaration/Release”) before being declared a
Grand Prize Finalist. If a potential Grand Prize Finalist fails to execute, sign and return the
Declaration/Release within the required time period, or if he/she is otherwise ineligible to
participate in the Grand Prize Event for a chance to win the Grand Prize (as the case may
be), that potential Grand Prize Finalist will be deemed ineligible and have no claim to the
Grand Prize (as applicable). An alternate will be selected in his/her place (from among all
remaining eligible Entries received for the applicable random drawing), time permitting, and
UniWorld will attempt to contact and obtain the required Declaration/Release from the
alternate. Odds of being selected as a Grand Prize Finalist depend on the number of eligible
Entries received as of 9:00 AM CDT on 7/3/21.
7. GRAND PRIZE EVENT: Confirmed/verified Grand Prize Finalists will be invited to attend the
Grand Prize Event on the evening of 7/3/21, at a specific time to be determined by Sponsor
in its sole discretion, during which the three (3) Finalists will participate in a Grand Prize Event
which will randomly determine the Grand Prize Winner. The exact details of the Grand Prize
Event are to be determined by Sponsor. Event is to be conducted under the supervision of
UniWorld, whose decisions in all matters of the Grand Prize Event are final. If a Finalist fails
for any reason to appear for the Grand Prize Event, the opportunity to participate in the Grand
Prize Event will be forfeited and no alternate participants will be selected. All Finalists must
possess and present upon request their own valid U.S. driver’s license. Failure to possess,
present or execute requested documentation in a timely fashion; meet any eligibility
requirement; or comply with any of the instructions herein will result in disqualification. If the
Grand Prize Event is cancelled or postponed for any reason, the Grand Prize will be awarded
in a random drawing from among the Finalists. Odds of a Finalist becoming the Grand Prize
Winner in the random drawing are 1:3.

06.10.2020
PERMITTED BY LAW. Tampering expressly includes but is not limited to acting in an anti-
social, belligerent or inappropriate manner toward Sponsor representatives or other persons

by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, action of Entrants,
technical failures or any other causes which in the opinion of Administrator and/or Sponsor,
corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this
Sweepstakes, Administrator reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any suspect
Entry or Entrant and to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes. In the event
of any cancellation, termination or suspension, notice thereof will be posted on
www.essence.com/ford, to the extent feasible, and the determination of the Grand Prize
winner will be made, from among all eligible, non- suspect Entries received as of the date of
the termination, cancellation or suspension. Entries not complying with all rules are subject to
disqualification.
11. RIGHT TO MODIFY OR CANCEL: The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these

any provision is found invalid or unenforceable, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in
effect in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was never
included. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules does not constitute a
waiver of that provision.
Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of
it, if any mistake, clerical or typographical error, omission, fraud, technical failure, tampering,
computer virus or other factor, technical or otherwise, beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control,
impairs Sponsor’s ability to properly conduct the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in
its sole discretion, subject to any applicable law or regulation. In such event, Sponsor reserves
the right, but not the obligation, to award any applicable prize(s) by random drawing from
among the eligible entries received up to the time of the cancellation, suspension or
modification of the Sweepstakes. Inclusion in such random drawing is Entrant’s exclusive
remedy under such circumstances.
All rights, consents and licenses granted to Sponsor under these Official Rules will survive
the termination of this Sweepstakes. Entrant’s consent and license may only be revoked in
writing, and the mere end of this Sweepstakes or Sweepstakes Period is not sufficient to
revoke such consent or license.

and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the
Sweepstakes or prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of

any other damages, other than out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have

LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues and questions
concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules,
Entrant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the 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.
