THIS SWEEPSTAKES IS IN NO WAY SPONSORED, ENDORSED, OR ADMINISTERED BY OR ASSOCIATED WITH TWITTER, INC. (“TWITTER”).
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND TIMING: The 12 Days of Sonic Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) begins December 9, 2019 at 12:00:00 a.m. Pacific Time (“PT”) and ends December 20, 2019 at 11:59:59 p.m. PT (“Sweepstakes Period”). The Sweepstakes Period is subdivided into twelve (12) separate entry periods (each a “Sweepstakes Day”). For purposes of these Official Rules, a “Sweepstakes Day” will begin at 12:00:00 a.m. PT each calendar day during the Sweepstakes Period and end at 11:59:59 p.m. ET of that same day. All eligible entries during the Sweepstakes Period will be entered into the prize drawing for the Sweepstakes Day on which the entry is publicly posted on Twitter. Entries for a Sweepstakes Day are not cumulative and do not roll over into the prize drawing for subsequent Sweepstakes Days (if any). Entry into the drawing for one Sweepstakes Day does not constitute entry into the drawing for any other Sweepstakes Day. No entrant may win more than one prize per Sweepstakes Day. The Sponsor of this Sweepstakes is Performance Entertainment USA, Inc., 21900 Burbank Blvd. Ste. 300, Woodland Hills, CA 91367 (“Sponsor”).
ELIGIBILITY: This Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of any one (1) of the forty-eight (48) contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) or the District of Columbia (“Territory”) who (a) are at least twenty-one (21) years of age as of the date of entry and (b) have an account with Twitter.
Employees, officers, directors, members, managers, representatives and agents of Sponsor, Paramount Pictures Corporation, SEGA, PMA, Fandango, AMC Theatres and any other entities participating in the design, promotion, marketing, administration or fulfillment of this Sweepstakes, as well as each of their parent corporations, subsidiaries and affiliated companies (collectively, with Twitter, Inc., the “Released Parties“), and their immediate families (defined as any spouse, domestic partner, parent, legal guardian, grandparent, sibling, child or legal ward, or grandchild, regardless of where they reside) and members of the same household (whether legally related or not) of any such person are ineligible to participate or win a prize in this Sweepstakes. This Sweepstakes is void outside the Territory and where prohibited by law.
Entry Posts that are not both actually visible and timely received by Sponsor will not be entered into this Sweepstakes. For purposes of this Sweepstakes, an Entry Post is “received” when Twitter records your Entry Post and it is visible to Sponsor. Sponsor’s clock will be the official timekeeper for this Sweepstakes. Other proof of submitting or attempting to submit an entry (such as, without limitation, a screenshot of your purported Entry Post) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of the entry for purposes of this Sweepstakes. Entrant’s Entry Post must remain visible to Sponsor throughout the award of the prizes in this Sweepstakes and Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, disqualify any entrant whose Entry Post is removed or otherwise made invisible to Sponsor prior to such time. Sponsor is not responsible for misspellings, typographical errors, or other issues that may affect the ability of Sponsor to locate a purported Entry Post using a search to find eligible entries. Sponsor may not be able to view purported Entry Posts, receive or send communications, or otherwise detect participation from or interact with entrants who have account settings that make their updates, comments, posts or communications private, protected, or otherwise limited due to the way the Twitter platform operates its service. Sponsor may not be able to communicate with an entrant via Twitter if entrant does not “follow” Sponsor’s account on Twitter. Entrants may discontinue following Sponsor or having an account on Twitter at any time, but doing so may mean that the entrant is not eligible to participate in this Sweepstakes and may be disqualified. It is each entrant’s responsibility to set his or her account settings to ensure that any purported Entry Post is made publicly, to accept contacts by Sponsor, and to timely check his or her account for any comments, @replies, messages, direct posts, or other communications (as applicable) from Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to any functionality or policy of Twitter that may interfere with the Sweepstakes or ability of an entrant to timely enter or otherwise participate at all.
Those who do not abide by these Official Rules or the instructions of Sponsor or its representatives and provide all required information may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be disqualified and any entry by such person void. Entries that are fraudulent, incomplete, lost, late, misdirected, illegitimate, incomprehensible, garbled, or generated by a macro, bot, or other automated means may be disqualified. Entries or participation made by you on behalf of any other individual or any entity or group, made by another on your behalf, or originating at any online service other than Twitter (including, without limitation, through a commercial promotion subscription, notification, or entering service) will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes. As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, without limiting any other provision in these Official Rules, each entrant gives consent for Sponsor and its agents to obtain and deliver his or her name, address, and other information to third parties for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and complying with applicable laws, regulations, and rules.
While Entry Posts do not need to include any content added by the entrant, if an entrant adds their own content to their Entry Post, the represent and warrant that any such content will not:
(1) be sexually explicit or suggestive or profane;
(2) be derogatory or promote bigotry, racism, violence, hatred or harm against any group or individual, or promote any form of discrimination whatsoever (including, but not limited to, discrimination based on race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age);
(3) promote alcohol, drugs (illegal or otherwise), tobacco, firearms/weapons (or the use of any of the foregoing), any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous, or any particular political agenda or message;
(4) be inappropriate, indecent, obscene, offensive, hateful, tortious, defamatory, slanderous or libelous, or endorse any form of hate or hate group;
(5) defame, misrepresent or contain disparaging remarks about a Released Party or its products, or other people, products or companies;
(6) contain trademarks, logos or trade dress owned by others, or advertise or promote any brand or product of any kind (other than Paramount Pictures’);
(7) contain any personal identification, such as license plate numbers, personal names, e-mail addresses or street addresses;
(8) communicate messages inconsistent with the positive images and/or goodwill to which the Released Parties wish to associate;
(9) violate any law or depict any violation of a law;
(10) contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement;
If an Entry Post is determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion to be in violation of any of the foregoing requirements, that Entry Post will be deemed ineligible and disqualified from this Sweepstakes in Sponsor’s sole discretion and Sponsor further reserves the right to take all actions that they deem necessary and appropriate to protect its rights and the rights of the Released Parties.
WINNER SELECTION/NOTIFICATION: Twelve (12) daily prizes (each, a “Daily Prize”) will be offered, with one (1) type of Daily Prize being offered each Sweepstakes Day. Each potential Daily Prize winner(s) will be selected by Sponsor’s designated representative from among all eligible entries actually recognized by Sponsor during the applicable Sweepstakes Day in a random drawing, . The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the applicable drawing.
Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner by direct message to the user account that posted the potentially winning Entry Post. The potential winner must respond within forty-eight (48) hours and in accordance with the instructions in the notification or the prize may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be forfeited. Sponsor may, in addition to or instead of a direct message, post an @reply to the potential winner’s Twitter account informing him or her that (s)he may have won a prize and requesting that (s)he contact Sponsor as instructed. The potential winner will have to contact Sponsor through the specified method and in accordance with the specified deadline or (s)he may be disqualified. Entrants are required to follow the @SonicMovie Twitter account at the time of entry and through award of the prize in this Sweepstakes in order to remain eligible.
The potential prize winners may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be required to complete, sign, have notarized (if applicable), and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (unless prohibited by law), and tax documents (collectively, “Winner Documents”), within ten (10) days of issuance (or other time frame as specified in the Winner Documents) and in the form provided by Sponsor, without revision, or prize may be forfeited and an alternative winner may be selected. If any notification or other Sweepstakes-related communication is returned as undeliverable, or if a selected potential winner cannot be reached or does not respond as instructed after Sponsor has attempted to notify that potential winner, that selected winner may be disqualified and an alternative winner may be selected (time permitting and in Sponsor’s sole discretion). Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential winner, if any. The prizes, if legitimately claimed, will be awarded. Sponsor will not be obligated to pursue more than two (2) alternate winners (time permitting) for any prize for any reason.

Sponsor will not replace any lost, mutilated, or stolen prize elements or any prize element that is undeliverable or does not reach winner because of an incorrect or changed address.

If a winner does not accept or use the entire prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the prize will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to that prize or portion of the prize. No transfers or prize substitutions will be made, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize or portion thereof with another prize or portion thereof of equal or greater value for any reason, including unavailability of the stated prize.

Winners are strictly prohibited from selling, auctioning, trading, or otherwise transferring any part of the prize, except with Sponsor’s permission, which may be granted or withheld for any reason in its sole discretion.
For the trip prize:
Actual retail value of the prize may vary depending on the location of the applicable winner’s residence, market conditions, changes in value of components (e.g., air transportation and hotel rates) and other reasons. The Released Parties are not responsible for and winner will not receive the difference between the actual value of the prize at the time of award and the stated ARV in these Official Rules or in any Sweepstakes-related correspondence or materials. Airfare tickets are subject to the issuer’s terms and conditions. Neither winner nor his or her guest will accrue any reward mileage or points for travel completed as part of the prize trip. Winner and guest must travel from a Sponsor-selected airport near winner’s residence within the Territory on Sponsor-selected dates or the prize will be forfeited. Sponsor is not responsible for a potential winner’s inability to accept or use the prize for any reason, including, without limitation, inability to travel on the dates and at the times ultimately selected by Sponsor. Failure to complete travel does not relieve winner of his/her tax obligations associated with accepting the prize (if any). In the event winner lives within close proximity to Los Angeles, CA (as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion), Sponsor will substitute ground transportation for airfare, and any difference in value will not be awarded to the winner. Winner’s guest must be at least twenty-one (21) years of age and the age of majority in his or her state of residence or the winner’s child or legal ward. Winner and his/her guest must travel together on the same itinerary. Winner and guest must depart from and return to the same airport within the Territory, unless otherwise agreed to by Sponsor.

Winner and guest must satisfy all security requirements and pass all security screening processes necessary to travel on prize trip, including, without limitation, those imposed by any government or governmental agency, any common carrier, or any of the Released Parties. Flight schedules are subject to change without notice. The Released Parties are not liable for any missed prize events, opportunities, or expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay or ground transportation delay. Additional restrictions may apply. Winner may be required to provide a credit card at time of check-in at the hotel to cover hotel incidentals. Except for the one (1) guest permitted to accompany winner as part of his/her prize, winner will not be allowed to bring any additional family members or guests on the prize trip. Each winner agrees that his/her guest must comply with Sponsor’s and each prize provider’s procedures and policies and must complete, sign, have notarized (if applicable), and return a release of liability and, where legal, publicity release to Sponsor in the timeframe specified or travel will not be allowed. If the guest is the winner’s child or legal ward, the winner will be required to execute guest paperwork on the child’s/ward’s behalf. Once selected by the applicable winner, a guest cannot be changed without the express consent of Sponsor, which may be withheld for any reason and at Sponsor’s sole discretion. By entering this Sweepstakes and accepting the prize, winner agrees to maintain his/her behavior in accordance with all applicable laws and generally accepted social practices in connection with participation in any Sweepstakes- or prize-related activity. Winner understands and agrees that Sponsor and the applicable prize providers have the right, in their sole discretion, to disqualify and remove winner or his/her guest from any activity at any time if the winner’s or his/her guest’s behavior is at any point uncooperative, disruptive, or may or does cause damage to person, property, or the reputation of Sponsor or otherwise violates the policies of the prize providers, and, in such a case, that winner will remain solely responsible for all taxes and other expenses related to the prize and responsible for the costs of removing him or her (or his/her guest) from use of the prize and any related damages, losses, or expenses. Specific travel arrangements and all prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.

ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMERS: The Released Parties are not liable to any entrant, or any person claiming through an entrant, for failure to supply any prize or any part thereof, by reason of any acts of God, any action(s), regulation(s), order(s) or request(s) by any governmental or quasi-governmental entity (whether or not the action(s), regulation(s), order(s) or request(s) proves to be invalid), equipment failure, actual or threatened terrorist acts, air raid, blackout, act of public enemy, earthquake, war (declared or undeclared), fire, flood, epidemic, explosion, unusually severe weather, hurricane, embargo, labor dispute or strike (whether legal or illegal), labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slow-down, civil disturbance, insurrection, riot, or any other cause beyond Sponsor’s sole control.

If for any reason an entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, the applicable entrant’s sole remedy is to submit another entry in the Sweepstakes. Released Parties are not responsible for: (i) electronic communications that are undeliverable or do not timely reach an entrant as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, (ii) any incorrect contact information supplied by entrant, or (iii) insufficient space in an entrant’s email account to receive email messages. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify, or suspend all or any part of the Sweepstakes if it becomes incapable of running as planned for any reason, or if any causes beyond the reasonable control of Sponsor corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, and award the prizes from eligible, non-suspect entries (if any) received prior to cancellation, modification, or suspension, or as otherwise deemed fair and appropriate by Sponsor. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of this Sweepstakes, or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other person. If any person supplies false information, obtains a prize by fraudulent means, is otherwise determined to be in violation of these Official Rules in an attempt to obtain any prize, or assists another in doing any of the preceding acts, Sponsor may disqualify that person and seek damages from him or her and that person may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Entrants agree to not damage or cause interruption of the Sweepstakes and/or prevent others from participating in the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void an entry submitted by any entrant who Sponsor believes has attempted to tamper with or impair the administration, security, fairness, or proper play of this Sweepstakes. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DISQUALIFY SUCH INDIVIDUAL AND TO SEEK DAMAGES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
ARBITRATION/CLASS-ACTION WAIVER/DISPUTE RESOLUTION/CHOICE OF LAW: The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration,” then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Chicago, IL, New York City, NY, Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA or Dallas, TX (whichever is closest to entrant’s residence) or (but only where required by the applicable arbitration rules) a location in/around entrant’s home town. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court.
GENERAL: By participating, and as a condition of participation, each entrant, to the extent permitted by applicable law, agrees: (1) to be fully and unconditionally bound by, and to waive any right to claim ambiguity in, these Official Rules; (2) that the decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes, including interpretation of these Official Rules, selection of the winners, and awarding of the prizes; (3) to the use of his/her name, voice, likeness, biographical data and/or information contained in his/her Entry Post for advertising and promotional purposes in any and all media now known or hereafter devised, worldwide (including online) in perpetuity by the Sponsor, its promotional partners, and third-party marketing entities, without additional compensation, review, or approval, except in Tennessee and where otherwise prohibited by law (but nothing contained in these Official Rules obligates Sponsor to make use of any of the rights granted herein and entrant waives any right to inspect or approve such use); and (4) that in the event of any dispute between the entrant and any Released Party: (a) entrant will not be permitted to obtain awards for, and hereby waives all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, consequential or special damages, lost profits and/or any other damages, including attorneys’ fees, other than his/her/its actual out-of-pocket expenses (if any), not to exceed ten dollars ($10 USD); and (b) entrant further waives all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. However, nothing in these Official Rules will restrict a California resident’s right (if any) to pursue public injunctive relief as permitted by applicable law and in accordance with the arbitration requirements above.
If any provision of these Official Rules is found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Official Rules and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Official Rules shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any term or condition of these Official Rules shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. In the event of an alleged or actual ambiguity, discrepancy, or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any Sweepstakes materials and the terms and conditions of these Official Rules (or within these Official Rules), it will be resolved by Sponsor in its sole discretion. EACH ENTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IF HE/SHE IS CHOSEN AS A WINNER, CERTAIN OF HIS/HER IDENTIFYING INFORMATION MAY BE DISCLOSED TO THIRD PARTIES AT LEAST AS REQUIRED BY LAW INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ON THE WINNER LIST.
