Limit of one (1) entry per method of entry, with a total of three (3) entries per person. Attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple or false contact information (e.g., through multiple accounts or using multiple identities) or otherwise may result in the entrant being disqualified. Entries generated by a script, computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic or other automated means are void and may be disqualified. Entries that are in excess of the stated limits, incomplete, illegible, corrupted, damaged, destroyed, forged, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the registered account holder. Registered e-mail account holder is defined as the person assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. For purposes of this Sweepstakes, an on-line entry is “received” when the Sponsor’s servers record the entry information.

4.WINNER SELECTION AND PRIZE CLAIMING
On or about April 9, 2015, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) entry from all the entries received during the Sweepstakes Period and such entry shall be the potential “Winner”.
Sponsor will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Official Rules, of administration of the Sweepstakes, and of selection of the winner. Decisions of the Sponsor as to the selection of the winner will be final. The potential winner will be notified using the information provided during entry in a commercially reasonable time after the drawing. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information. Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending of an email or placing a phone call/voicemail. A potential prize winner who provides a P.O. Box may be required to provide an alternative address and this may cause a delay in notification and acceptance so use of a P.O. Box is discouraged. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for electronic communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, or insufficient space in entrant’s email account to receive email messages.
The potential winner shall have seventy-two (72) hours after notification to claim their prize. In addition, the potential winner may be required to agree to an affidavit of eligibility / release of liability / prize acceptance agreement (collectively, the “Affidavit”) or submit certain tax documents and must return the Affidavit and/or tax documents within the time period specified at notification before being eligible to receive his or her prize. If any potential prize winner fails to comply with these Official Rules or fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit and/or tax documents as and when required by Sponsor or if the prize or prize notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed or returned as undeliverable to such potential prize winner, such potential prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate may be selected. Parents or legal guardians of any prize winner who is at least eighteen (18) years of age but under the age of majority in his or her state of residence (nineteen (19) in Alabama and Nebraska and twenty-one (21) in Mississippi) may be required to also sign the Affidavit in order for the prize winner to be qualified to receive their prize. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the prize, or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward seeking to claim prizes in excess of the number of each type of prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential winners, or if potential winner is a minor, for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts of potential winner to provide signed parental or guardian consent.
Odds of winning will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
6. PRIZES AND VALUE
The Winner shall receive a Chrysler 200 S with an MSRP of $26,615 and Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000)(USD). Sponsor will cover all sales tax, title fees, and registration fees associated with the prize vehicle (Sponsor estimates this amount to be around 15% of the MSRP or $4742, which may vary based on various factors, including the jurisdiction of the Winner).
Car will not be delivered to Winner, but rather, Sponsor will arrange for Winner to claim the car at car dealership near Winner’s home at a time and date determined by Sponsor. Prize winner will be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes (other than sales tax for the prize vehicle), and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize they receive (other than title fees and registration fees for the prize vehicle), regardless of whether they, in whole or in part, are used.
Prizes are non-transferable, with no cash redemptions, equivalents or substitutions except at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Prize details and availability are subject to change and prize provider’s rules and restrictions, and in the event that Sponsor is unable to provide the winner with their prize, the Sponsor may elect to provide winners with the approximate value of such item in cash or award an alternate prize of comparable or greater value. In the event a prize winner engages in behavior that (as determined by Sponsor or any prize provider in its or their sole and absolute discretion) is obnoxious, inappropriate, or threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify winner from receiving his/her prize. The prize is awarded “AS IS” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the prize is based on available information provided to Sponsor and the value of any prize awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. The winner may be required to provide Sponsor with a valid social security number or tax identification number before the prize will be awarded for tax reporting purposes. An IRS Form 1099 may be issued in the name of winner, or if a minor in the jurisdiction in which s/he resides, in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, for the actual value of the prize received. Unclaimed prize(s) will be forfeited. Prize, if legitimately claimed, will be awarded. Sponsor is not responsible for and will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen prizes or any prize that is undeliverable or does not reach the winner because of an incorrect or changed address. If the winner does not accept or use the entire prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the prize will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to that prize or portion of the prize. No more than the stated prize will be awarded. The winner is strictly prohibited from selling, auctioning, trading or otherwise transferring any part of the prize. Sponsor is not responsible for and winner will not receive the difference, in any, between the actual value of the prize at the time of award and the stated ARV in these Official Rules or in any Sweepstakes-related correspondence or material. Prize will only be credited to verified winner’s Groupon account, except in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. The total ARV of all of the prizes awarded in this Sweepstakes is Thirty-Six Thousand Three Hundred Fifty Seven Dollars ($36,357)(USD).
