OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE

SWEEPSTAKES DESCRIPTION: The National Geographic “Yellowstone Live” Sweepstakes
(the “Sweepstakes”) begins on or about June 13, 2019, at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and
ends on June 26, 2019, at 1:59 p.m. ET (the “Sweepstakes Period”). At the end of the
Sweepstakes Period, one (1) Grand Prize winner will be selected, as set forth more fully below.
By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply
with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of National Geographic Partners, located
at 1145 17th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in
all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: Only legal residents of the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States and the
District of Columbia, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older
at the time of entry are eligible to enter. Sponsor, Kaleidoscope Promotions Interactive, Ltd. (the
“Sweepstakes Administrator”), their respective parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and each of
their respective officers, directors and employees (collectively, the “Sweepstakes Entities”), and
each of their immediate family members and/or people living in the same household are NOT
eligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win the prize. This sweepstakes is void where prohibited.
HOW TO ENTER: You may enter the Sweepstakes by visiting the web site
YellowstoneLiveSweepstakes.com (the “Website”) during the Sweepstakes Period, and following
the instructions to complete and submit the entry form with the information requested. Limit one
(1) entry per person and/or per e-mail address. All entries must be received by the end of the
Sweepstakes Period in order to participate. The Website’s database clock will be the official time
keeper for the Sweepstakes.
DRAWINGS AND WINNER NOTIFICATION: On June 26, 2019, one (1) Grand Prize winner will
be randomly selected from among all eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes
Period. The random drawings will be conducted by Sponsor or Sweepstakes Administrator, using
randomization methods selected in its sole discretion. Odds of winning depend on the total
number of eligible entries received. The potential winner will be notified by telephone and/or
email using the contact information given at the time of entry, and will be announced on-air during
the June 26 broadcast of Yellowstone Live on National Geographic Channel (pending verification
of his/her eligibility). Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost,
intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a
potential winner does not respond within three (3) days of the first notification attempt, or if the
prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such
potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any
potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules
or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an
alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor will successively attempt to contact up to two (2)
potential winners of the prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed
winner of the prize in question after such attempts have been made, the prize may go
unawarded.
GRAND PRIZE: One (1) Grand Prize is available (the “Grand Prize”). The Grand Prize is a trip

GENERAL LIABILITY RELEASE/FORCE MAJEURE: Acceptance of a prize constitutes
winner’s permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical

worldwide and in all forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without
further compensation. Entrants agree that the Sweepstakes Entities (A) shall not be responsible
or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any
kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or
indirectly, to participation in the Sweepstakes or any Sweepstakes-related activity, or from
entrants’ acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not
made any warranty, representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect
to any prize, including, without limitation, to such prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose.
Sponsor assumes no responsibility for any damage to an entrant’s computer system which is
occasioned by accessing the Website or otherwise participating in the Sweepstakes, or for any
computer system, phone line, hardware, software or program malfunctions, or other errors,
failures, delayed computer transmissions or network connections that are human or technical in
nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete,
illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due submissions or prize
notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites,
Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed,
jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for
any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the
incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. Sponsor
reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering
with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or the Website, to be acting in
violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsman-like or disruptive manner, or
with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to annoy,
abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages
and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. No mechanically
reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries
will be accepted. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the entrant, any on-line entry will
be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account from which it was
sent, provided such account holder must still meet the eligibility requirements for the
Sweepstakes. The authorized account holder shall be the natural person to whom the applicable
email address has been assigned by the Internet access provider, service provider, or other
online organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the
submitted e-mail address. The potential winner may be requested to provide the Sponsor with
proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated
with the winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the entry will be
deemed ineligible. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the
Sweepstakes, in whole or in part, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes or
any particular Sweepstakes drawing is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical
problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or
severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play
and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes or particular Sweepstakes drawing as contemplated herein.
In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes or a
particular Sweepstakes drawing as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control,
including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic of health of other means,
earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment
failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any
federal state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis (e.g. SARS), order
of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force
Majeure” event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be
required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes in its
entirety or the affected Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes or a particular Sweepstakes is
terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner[s] in a
random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving
rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive
remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these
Official Rules will be awarded. 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
in the prize category in question may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons
making purportedly valid claims for such prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each
entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be
modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a
duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of
these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that
any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall
otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid
or illegal provision were not contained herein.
