will be considered the Entrant, subject to any other requirements imposed under these Rules. Submission of
erroneous or incomplete information will void a submitted Entry.
During the Sweepstakes Period, Entrants may submit one (1) unique Entry per Entry Period. Once an Entrant

entry during the same Entry Period, regardless of what social media platform or other entry method is used. If
multiple Entries are received in excess of the stated limitation from any person, household, Facebook, Instagram

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or TikTok account during such Entry Period will be eligible for entry.

on behalf of Sponsor via direct message (“DM”) on the platform through which his/her/their Entry was submitted.
Entries will not be acknowledged or returned. In the event multiple Entrants enter the Sweepstakes using the
same Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or TikTok account and a dispute thereafter arises regarding the identity of
the Entrant, the authorized account holder of said social media account at the time the Entry was received by
Sponsor shall be deemed the Entrant. In the event of any other dispute concerning any Entry submitted via a
social media platform, the authorized account holder of the Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or TikTok account
through which the Entry was made shall be deemed the Entrant, and a potential Sweepstakes winner may be
required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. For purposes of these Official Rules, the
“authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is identified by the records of Facebook,
Instagram, Twitter or TikTok (as relevant) as the owner of such account. required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder.

that the foregoing shall not apply to any person requiring assistance with completion and/or submission of an Entry
due to physical or mental limitations; any person whose relevant actions or inactions are protected by the
Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”); or any other verified or verifiable reason(s) that renders an Entrant unable
to perform the actions necessary to submit his/her/their Entry independently. Entries identified as having been
made by a commercial sweepstakes/contest subscription notification and/or entering services shall be declared
invalid and shall be disqualified for this Sweepstakes. 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 may be declared
invalid and/or otherwise disqualified for this Sweepstakes, and other action may be taken against the Entry and/or
Entrant as deemed appropriate by Sponsor to maintain the integrity of the Sweepstakes. Sponsor is not
responsible for any deficiencies relating to submission or attempted submission of an Entry, including problems
downloading or uploading any Sweepstakes-related information to or from any website; malfunctions of electronic
equipment, computer on-line systems, servers, or providers; computer hardware or software failures; failure of any
first class mail or electronic mail entry intended by Entrant to be received by Sponsor; or any other complication

release contained in this Section, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor
does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must
have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

connection with this Sweepstakes may be publicly posted or otherwise appear on any website or social media
page controlled by Sponsor, whether during or after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period. Entrant

5. DETERMINATION OF WINNERS:
On or around the “Entry End” date indicated for a Weekly Period in Table 1 below, eight (8) Entries will be randomly
drawn by or on behalf of Sponsor from all eligible Entries received during that Weekly Period. Each of such eight
(8) Entries shall be deemed a “Weekly Prize Winning Entry” upon verification by or on behalf of Sponsor that such
Entry and corresponding Entrant satisfy all eligibility requirements stated in, and are otherwise in compliance with,
these Official Rules.
All entries received during the Total Sweepstakes Period shall be automatically entered into a “Grand Prize
Drawing”. One (1) Entry shall then be randomly drawn by or on behalf of Sponsor from all aggregated Entries.
Such randomly drawn Entry shall be deemed the “Grand Prize Winning Entry” upon verification by or on behalf of
Sponsor that such Entry and corresponding Entrant satisfy all eligibility requirements stated in, and are otherwise
in compliance with, these Official Rules.
Failure of any Entry or Entrant to satisfy any verification, eligibility or compliance requirement pertaining to this
Sweepstakes shall render such Entry and/or Entrant incapable of being declared or permitted to serve as a Winning
Entry (which term includes Weekly Prize Winning Entries and Grand Prize Winning Entries). The odds of any Entry
winning are based on the number of eligible Entries received.
On or around the relevant “Winner Notification Date” indicated in Table 1 below for each Weekly Period and the
Grand Prize drawing (respectively), Sponsor shall attempt to notify the Entrant identified on each potential Winning
Entry via email at the email address stated on an Entry submitted through Sponsor’s website or by mail, or in the
case of Entries submitted through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or TikTok, by DM to such Entrant’s account on
the platform through which the Winning Entry was submitted. TO QUALIFY AS A WINNING ENTRY, ENTRANT
MUST RESPOND TO SPONSOR WITHIN THREE (3) BUSINESS DAYS OF ISSUANCE OF SPONSOR’S
COMMUNICATION NOTIFYING ENTRANT THAT HE/SHE/THEY ARE A POTENTIAL WINNING ENTRY
(WHICH SUCH RESPONSE SHALL BE PROVIDED BY ENTRANT USING THE SAME FORM OF
COMMUNICATION AS SPONSOR’S INITIAL COMMUNICATION). In the event that Sponsor receives a
notification indicating that its email was undeliverable, or was received by someone other than the Entrant, or that
the email recipient may not be auditing his/her/their email box (permanently or temporarily), such notification shall
serve to disqualify the identified Entrant as a potential Winning Entry; Sponsor shall have no further obligation to
locate such Entrant; and Sponsor shall have the right to award any prize that may have been available to such
potential Winning Entry to another randomly drawn eligible Entry from the same Entry Period. Sponsor shall
similarly have no obligation to further attempt to contact any potential prize winner to whom a potential prize winner
notification was issued and no response was received within three (3) business days of issuance by Sponsor,
which such lack of response shall serve to disqualify the identified Entrant as a Winning Entry and shall give rise
to Sponsor’s right to award any prize that may have been available to such potential Winning Entry to another
randomly drawn eligible Entry from the same Entry Period.

prize winner fails to sign and return a requested Affidavit/Release or any other reasonably requested documents

to require forfeiture and return of, such potential prize winner’s potential prize, which may be awarded by Sponsor
to another randomly drawn eligible Entry from the same Entry Period. Sponsor shall hold up to two (2) alternate
drawings aimed to reallocate any prize available under this paragraph, after which any prizes not delivered in
accordance with these Official Rules may be subject to additional alternate drawings or may remain un-awarded,
at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor shall have no obligation to award any prizes in the event Sponsor’s
reasonable efforts to conduct this Sweepstakes and/or to identify Entries/Entrants eligible to be awarded prizes in
accordance with these Official Rules are unsuccessful. If a potential prize winner is at least eighteen (18) years
old but still considered a minor in his/her/their state of residence, Sponsor may, at its discretion, award the potential
prize in the name of such potential prize winner’s parent or legal guardian who will be responsible for fulfilling all
requirements imposed on winners as set forth herein.

WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. AN
ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN
