4. How to Enter the Grand Prize Sweepstakes and Instant Win Game: During the Promotion
Period, visit NationalRanchMonth.com (“Website”) and complete and submit the registration form
including a valid email address. You automatically will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into
the Grand Prize Sweepstakes drawing and advance to the Instant Win Game page and receive
one (1) Instant Win Game play for that day. Once on the Instant Win Game page, the Instant Win
Game results will be instantly displayed. Potential winners of the Instant Win Game will be
provided directions for validation. All potential winners are subject to verification before any prize
will be awarded. Administrator is responsible for the functionality of the Instant Win Game.
Limit: Each entrant may enter/play one (1) time per day during the Promotion Period. Multiple
entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain
more than the stated number of plays/entries by using multiple/different email addresses,
identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s plays/entries and
that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will
result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible
or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any
registration or play, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be
deemed to be the entrant or player. 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. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized
account holder.
5. How to Enter the Weekly Social Sweepstakes:
Participation Requirements: To participate, you will need to have a Twitter and/or
Instagram account (each a “Social Account”). Creating each Social Account is free but is
subject to the applicable terms and conditions (http://twitter.com/tos) or
(http://instagram.com/about/legal/terms/#). Posting on Instagram requires a mobile
device and therefore message and data rates may apply. If entering via a mobile
device and using your wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your
wireless carrier may apply.
Entry Requirements: During the Promotion Period, take the following actions to receive a
Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Social Sweepstakes Weekly Entry Period drawing:
(1) Follow @hidden.valley Instagram or @HVRanch Twitter on Twitter/Instagram;
(2) tweet/post a photo or video that responds to the applicable Weekly Theme and
include the applicable hashtags as outlined in Section 3 above (your “Tweet/Post” or
“Submission”);
(3) Your account settings must remain public during the Promotion Period and until the
prizes are awarded (as described in Section 6); and
(4) You must not change your Instagram or Twitter handle during the Promotion Period
and until the prizes are awarded (as described in Section 6).
Your Tweet/Post need not include any reference, positive or negative, to Sponsor’s
products or services. Including a reference/image in your social post will not
improve your chances of winning. Retweets, Instagram stories, and Instagram posts
where the hashtag is included in a comment rather than the caption of the original post
will not be deemed entries.
Content Restrictions for your Social Sweepstakes Entry:
Your Tweet/Post must be your original work;
Your Tweet/Post must not convey any claims of Sponsor’s products or services
that would be deemed unsubstantiated or deceptive if made by Sponsor;
Your Tweet/Post must not disparage Sponsor or any other parties;
You must have permission to include the names or likenesses of other
individuals and to grant the rights set forth herein. You should only include
minors in your Tweet/Post if they are your children/wards. If requested, entrant
must be able to provide such permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor;
Your Tweet/Post must not contain material that violates or infringes another’s
rights and therefore may not include logos, trademarks or any other intellectual
property other than those of the Sponsor;
Your Tweet/Post must not make references to or include: alcohol, illegal drugs,
tobacco, or firearms/weapons, any activities that are or appear to be dangerous,
or any political agenda;
Your Tweet/Post may not be indecent, obscene, sexually explicit, hateful,
promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual or
promotes discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability,
sexual orientation, or age; and
Your Tweet/Post may not be tortious, defamatory, libelous, disparage Sponsor or
any other person or party, or contain material that is unlawful in any way.
Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may disqualify any post that it finds unlawful, or in violation of
these Official Rules.
Sponsor’s Use of Social Post Content: Tweeting/Posting a Submission constitutes
entrant’s consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive
license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such
submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other
works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for
promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, entrant will sign any 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.
Entry Limit: Each Submission must be unique to qualify as a Social Sweepstakes entry. Multiple
entrants are not permitted to share the same Twitter/Instagram account. 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 Twitter/Instagram account 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 used to create the Twitter/Instagram account. Each
potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. Released
Parties (as defined in Section 10, below) are not responsible for lost, late, unreceived, damaged,
incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions or failure to
receive Submissions due to limitation of third-party social network platforms all of which will be
void.
6. Grand Prize Sweepstakes/Weekly Social Sweepstakes/Instant Win Game: Administrator is
an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of
the Promotion and the selection of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to
the Promotion. Grand Prize Sweepstakes: Administrator will randomly select the potential
Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner, from all eligible entries on or around April 1, 2021. Weekly
Social Sweepstakes: Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from
all eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Entry Period, on or around the dates
listed above in Section 3. Non-winning entries will not carry over into subsequent Social
Sweepstakes Weekly Entry Periods. Instant Win Game: one thousand two hundred seventy-eight
(1,278) random, computer-generated winning times, one for each prize listed below, one (1) prize
type per day (quantities vary, see Section 9) will be generated during the Promotion Period. If you
are the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one of the randomly-generated times,
you will be a potential instant winner of the prize indicated.
7. ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR OR
ADMINISTRATOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS
RELATED TO THE PROMOTION. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF
THE INSTANT WIN GAME, SOCIAL SWEEPSTAKES OR GRAND PRIZE SWEEPSTAKES
SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY, AND THE
POTENTIAL WINNER HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT
VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER
EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT
OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE
PLAY, IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.
8. Verification of Potential Winners: Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with
these Official Rules. The potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner will be notified by email.
Each potential Weekly Social Sweepstakes winner will be notified by @hidden.valley [Instagram]
or @HVRanch [Twitter] through the social channel used to enter and will be directed to a secure
online claim form and asked to provide his/her name, email address, mailing 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 Sweepstakes Grand Prize
winner and the March 30, 2021 Instant Win Game Prize winner (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 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 or fails to
sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within the required
time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits the prize.
In the event that a potential winner of a prize valued over $25 forfeits the prize or is disqualified
for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing
from among all remaining eligible entries. There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which
the prize will remain unawarded. Unclaimed prizes valued at $25 or less will not be awarded.

Odds of winning an Instant Win Game prize depend on the number of Instant Win prizes available
divided by the number of eligible Instant Win Game plays.
For All Prizes: Terms and conditions of gift cards apply. The actual value of electronic prizes is
subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap
in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date
the prize is awarded or redeemed. No cash equivalent and all prizes are non-transferable and no
substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor
reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize
should become unavailable for any reason. Winners are responsible for all taxes and fees
associated with prize receipt and/or use. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the
conclusion of the Promotion. TOTAL ARV OF ALL PRIZES: $38,565.00. Limit: One (1)
Sweepstakes prize and one (1) Instant Win Game prize per person.
10. Release: By participating in the Promotion, entrants agree to release and hold harmless
Sponsor, TPN Retail, Inc., Instagram, Inc., Twitter, Inc., Administrator, and their respective
subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies and each of their
respective parent companies and each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents
(collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but
not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation
in the Promotion or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.
11. Publicity: Except where prohibited, participation in the Promotion constitutes winner’s
consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions
and/or hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further
payment or consideration.
12. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the
Promotion, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs
the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes or Instant Win Game, or any event or
cause beyond Sponsor’s control (e.g. events such as natural calamities, national emergencies,
wide spread illnesses, declarations of war, acts of God, acts of terrorism) interferes with any
aspect of the Sweepstakes or Instant Win Game, including but not limited to fulfillment of the
prize(s), as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor reserves the
right to modify the prizes offered herein and to award the prizes at random from among the
eligible entries or plays received up to the time of the impairment. 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 Instant Win Game 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 or the Instant Win
Game 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.
13. 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 Promotion; (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 Promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of
the Promotion or the processing of entries; or (5) 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
Promotion or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry or play is
confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s
sole remedy is another Sweepstakes entry or Instant Win Game play, if 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 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.
14. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and
causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded shall be
resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United
States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division) or the appropriate
Michigan State Court located in Oakland County, Michigan; (2) any and all claims, judgments and
awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with
entering this Promotion, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will
entrant be permitted to obtain 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 Promotion, 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.
