illegible, misdirected or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.
Limit: You may enter one (1) time during the Promotion Period, regardless of method of entry. Multiple
entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more
than one (1) entry by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any
other methods will void that entrant’s entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated

access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses
for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show
proof of being an authorized account holder.
5. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the
administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and
binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential
Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around March
9, 2020. The potential winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. Each potential Grand Prize
winner (or 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 his/her prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be
contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within the
required time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits
his/her prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that
a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate
