the rules written for a specific Promotion (the “Official Promotion Rules”). In the event that any
provision of the Official Promotion Rules conflicts with any provision of the General Rules
provided herein, the terms of the Official Promotion Rules shall prevail with respect to such matter.
The Sponsor (as defined in the Official Promotion Rules) reserves the right in its sole discretion to
interpret the rules of any Promotion, and such interpretation shall be binding upon all entrants. The
Official Promotion Rules and the General Rules may be referred to collectively as the “Official
Rules” for a Promotion.

altered entries will be accepted. Entries will not be acknowledged or returned. Any person who

holder of the e-mail address used to submit entry or otherwise associated with the online or social
media account used to submit the entry. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural
person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service
provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain
associated with the submitted e-mail address. Proof of submission of an entry does not constitute
proof of receipt.
4. Photo, Video, and other Submissions Guidelines: If the Promotion requires or allows entrant to
submit a photo, video, essay, or other submission (each a “Submission”): entrant represents and
warrants that (i) the Submission is his or her original work, and (ii) that such Submission does not
infringe upon any third party’s proprietary or other rights. Upon entry, entrant unconditionally
assigns and transfers to Sponsor any and all rights which entrant now has or may in the future have
to such Submission, including without limitation, the copyright therein, in any medium
whatsoever. Sponsor will have the unrestricted right to use, publish, reproduce, display or
otherwise distribute the Submission however Sponsor deems fit without further approval of, or
payment to, the entrant. Submissions shall NOT:
a. Include trademarks, logos, or copyrighted material not owned by entrant or used without
permission (such as company names, music, photographs, works of art or images published on
or in websites, television, movies or other media), other than the trademarks and logos of the
Sponsor or Sponsor’s affiliates;

determined in the Sponsor’s sole discretion.

received in a random drawing held as soon as practicable after the close of the sweepstakes period,
and usually within approximately three (3) business days. Judges’ decisions are final on all matters
relating to the sweepstakes. Winners will be notified by telephone, email, or via social media, at
Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event that a Promotion has multiple prize periods, then (a) entrants
may enter during more than one prize period only if permitted pursuant to the Official Promotion
Rules, (b) winners during one prize period will not be eligible to win prizes in subsequent prize
periods and (c) non-winning entries will NOT be carried forward to subsequent prize period
drawings unless specified in the Official Promotion Rules. Winners of a contest will be selected
according to the Official Promotion Rules.
6. Prizes and Odds: Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received for each
Promotion. The prizes will be awarded (assuming eligible entries are received). Sponsor reserves
the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value in the event any advertised prize becomes
unavailable for any reason. In the event that the approximate retail value of a prize as advertised in
the Official Rules exceeds the actual retail value at the time the prize is awarded, winner shall not
receive any difference in value. Unless specifically stated in the prize description, winner is
responsible for all costs and fees associated with a prize, including but not limited to transportation,
accommodations and meals.

three (3) days of the date of first attempted notification, or sooner as required by Sponsor
depending on the nature of the prize (e.g. tickets to an event). Failure to comply with this deadline
may result in forfeiture of the prize and selection of an alternate winner, time permitting. Return of
any prize or prize notification as undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the prize and selection of
an alternate winner. Acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for Sponsor and its designees to
use winner’s name, address, likeness, and/or prize information for advertising and promotional
purposes in any medium without additional compensation.

destruction, unauthorized access to or alteration of entry materials, loss or otherwise. Further,
Sponsor and judges are not responsible for electronic communications which are undeliverable as a

termination or suspension, a notice will be posted and a random drawing will be held from among
all eligible, non-suspect entries received which are not affected by the problem. Sponsor reserves
the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any entrant (and all of his or her Promotion entries)
from this Promotion or any other promotion conducted now or in the future by Sponsor or any of
its affiliates if he or she tampers with the entry process or if his or her fraud, misconduct, or other
action that affects the integrity of the Promotion. For contests that involve voting open to the
general public, the use of “vote-swapping” or “vote trading” websites (including but not limited to

or voter that utilizes such a website is subject to disqualification. Without limiting the foregoing,

votes received through such means will be void. Any attempt by any voter or entrant to submit or
solicit more than the stated number of votes by using multiple/different email addresses, Facebook
IDs, identities or any other method will void that person’s votes and entry (if any), and he/she may
be disqualified from further voting or other participation in the contest. Sponsors reserve the right

Rules or General Rules to reflect non-material updates to the Promotion.
