Rules, click “submit” to be entered into the Sweepstakes’ random drawing. All online entries must
be submitted by October 3, 2021 at 11:59:59 PM ET to be eligible for the random drawing.
Released Parties will not acknowledge or confirm receipt of any entries, regardless of entry method used.
Released Parties are not responsible for Internet provider or cellular carrier or cell tower glitches or outages
that result in the non-receipt of any participants’ entry attempts. Released Parties are not responsible for
entries that are garbled, corrupted, or otherwise unascertainable or incomprehensible.
Limit one (1) entry per entrant per day, regardless of the method of entry. Only one (1) individual cellular
telephone number per Entrant may be used in connection with this Promotion. Any person who attempts to
participate by using multiple cellular telephone numbers, multiple identities, or by using any device or artifice
to participate in violation of the terms stated in these Official Rules, may be disqualified by Sponsor in its sole
discretion. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar participation methods or agents
will void such participation in the Sweepstakes. In the event of a dispute over who is an entrant or who an
entry corresponds to, the authorized subscriber of the e-mail account or cellular number used to enter the
Sweepstakes of the actual time that such information was received by Sponsor, will be deemed to be the
entrant. The “authorized subscriber” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an
Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g. business, education, institution,
etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail
address, or the company who assigned the telephone number associated with a text entry. In the event of a
dispute over who is an entrant or who an entry submitted through the text message method corresponds to,
the authorized cellular telephone service account linked to the cellular telephone number used to enter the
Sweepstakes as of the actual time that such information was received by Sponsor, will be deemed to be the
Entrant. Released Parties may require an entrant to show proof of being the authorized account holder or
the authorized cellular telephone or account holder. Entrants may be required to indicate their acceptance
to the Official Rules where indicated at the time of registration; provided, however, that any entrant’s
participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes, and is deemed, such Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement
to the Official Rules and any and all decisions of Released Parties, which are final and binding in all respects.
4. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION.
Winner Selection: There will be a total of Two (2) Grand Prize Winner (“Grand Prize Winner”) in the
Sweepstakes, as determined by a random drawing (the “Random Drawing”) to be conducted by Administrator

place on or about October 6, 2021. All decisions of Sponsor and Administrator are final and binding in all
respects. All entries are subject to verification, confirmation and compliance with the Official Rules. Odds of
winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
Winner Notification: Sponsor or Administrator will attempt to notify each potential Prize Winner of his/her
winning status via the telephone number, and/or e-mail address provided in connection with the Prize
Winner’s entry on or about the day of the Random Drawing, at Sponsor’s discretion. Each potential Winner

7. Privacy Policies and Data Collections: Information provided by you for this Sweepstakes on the entry form,
including a receipt, is subject to Sponsor’s Privacy Policy: https://www.pernod-ricard.com/en/pernod-ricard-
online-privacy-policy/. By entering this Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees that the Sponsor and/or
Administrator has the right to contact the entrant by phone, direct message, or email accounts provided on
the Entry Form to administer and fulfill this Sweepstakes.
8. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any
part of it, for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation, 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, order of any court or

Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the Grand Prize
Winners 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. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be
tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these
Official Rules or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any
person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal
and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any
such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these
Official Rules will be awarded. 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. Sponsor’s failure
to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
9. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties as set forth above are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or
inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or
programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but
not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software;
(3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or
human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; or (5)
any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part,
from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any Prize. If for any reason an
entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole
remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to
discontinuance of the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to
hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all
of the Prizes offered herein. Entrant further agrees and acknowledges that Sponsor reserves the right to forfeit
or award any unclaimed or leftover Prize at its sole discretion. If for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable
of running as planned, including without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering,
unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which corrupt or affect the
administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right,
at its sole discretion to cancel, suspend, modify or terminate the Sweepstakes.

the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsors in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed
by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any choice
