Residents of the United States (including D.C.):
“Sephora Beauty Insider Sweepstakes,” c/o HelloWorld, Inc., P.O. Box 5005, Department
842278, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5005, U.S.A.
Residents of Canada:
“Sephora Beauty Insider Sweepstakes,” c/o HelloWorld, Inc., 1690 Huron Church Rd., #313,
Windsor, ON N9C 2L1, Canada.
You will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry into the applicable Daily Entry Period. Limit: One (1)
entry per envelope. All mail-in entries must be handwritten and must be postmarked and received
on the dates listed in Section 3 above. All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and
none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be
proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid,
unintelligible, illegible, misdirected, or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.
Limit: You may receive up to one hundred (100) Sweepstakes entries during the Promotion Period,
regardless of method of entry. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any
attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email
addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s entries and
that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in
disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email
address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural
person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other
organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted
address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
5. Prize Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the
administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and
binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential Entry
Period Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during each applicable Entry Period in
Southfield, MI, at the time and date outlined in the table in Section 3. Non-winning Daily Entry Period
entries will not carry over to subsequent Daily Entry Periods. The potential winners will be notified by
email or phone. Each potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her place of
residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver, and where not
prohibited a Publicity Release (“Declaration”), which must be received by Administrator, within five (5)
days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize. If a Canadian resident, the
potential winner will be required to correctly answer a time-limited, skill-testing question without any
assistance in order to be eligible to receive a prize. If a potential winner is a Canadian resident, he/she
will be required to complete IRS Form W-8BEN. If a potential winner is a Canadian resident and the
question is answered incorrectly, the prize will be forfeited. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails
to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within the required time
period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential
winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner by random
drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after
which the prize will remain unawarded. Prize will be fulfilled within approximately 8-10 weeks after the
conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
6. Prizes: TEN (10) DAILY PRIZES (one (1) awarded per Daily Entry Period): If winner is a resident of the
United States, he/she will receive a $25,000 USD check. If the winner is a resident of the United States,
he/she will receive an IRS form 1099 and will be responsible for all taxes associated with acceptance of
the prize.
If the winner is a resident of Canada, Sponsor will deduct 30% of the value of the prize and remit it to the
IRS (the United States tax agency) as required by law. Winner will receive a U.S tax form 1042 from the
Administrator reflecting the total value of the prize, including the deducted amount and the withholding
amount submitted to the IRS will be noted separately. Therefore, if winner is a resident of Canada, he/she
will receive a $17,500 USD check.
For All Prizes: Prize is non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the
Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize for one of equal or greater
value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Winners are responsible for all
taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Odds of winning the prize depend on the number
of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. Total Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of
all prizes: up to $250,000 USD. Limit: One (1) prize per person.
7. Release: By receipt of prize, winners agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, J. C. Penney

advertising/promotion agencies, and prize suppliers, and each of their respective parent companies and
each such company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from

process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any
other Sweepstakes 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. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official
Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties 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

which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the

have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is
another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more than the stated number of prizes will be
awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming, or any other reasons cause more

legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.

hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental, and consequential damages and any other
damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied

enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in
connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of
