b. Alternate Method of Entry: To enter without redeeming Beauty Insider Points, hand print your
name, address, Sephora Beauty Insider Member number, day and evening phone numbers,

c/o HelloWorld, Inc., P.O. Box 5121, Department 839266, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5121. You will
receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. 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 one (1) Sweepstakes entry into each Daily Entry Period drawing and up to twelve
(12) Sweepstakes entries into the Grand Prize Entry Period drawing 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, Sephora Beauty Insider Member numbers, 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 winner 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. The potential winners will be notified
by email or phone. The potential Grand Prize 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 the potential winner is a
Canadian resident and the question is answered incorrectly, the prize will be forfeited. If a potential
winner of any prize 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 the 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 un-awarded. Prizes will be
fulfilled within approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.

Card. ARV: $250.

be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to

Odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry
Period. Total ARV of all prizes: $8,000. Limit: One (1) prize per person.
If the Grand Prize winner is a resident of the United States, they will receive an IRS form 1099 and will be
responsible for all taxes associated with acceptance of the prize. If a winner is not a resident of the United
States, Sponsor will gross up the prize value in an amount to satisfy the 30% withholding requirement.
The withholding amount will be submitted to the US taxing authority IRS (the United States tax agency)
as required by law and winner will receive a U.S tax form 1042 from the Administrator reflecting the total
value of the prize, including the gross up amount and the withholding amount submitted to the IRS will be
noted separately.

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.

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

eligible prize claims.

connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of
