play the Instant Win Game once per day. Additional “Bonus Sweepstakes” entries can only be

Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of plays/entries by using multiple/different email
addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that Entrant’s
plays/entries and that Entrant may be disqualified from the entire Promotion. Use of any
automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification of an Entrant.
Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected
registrations, which will all be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration into the
Sweepstakes or play of the Instant Win Game, the authorized account holder of the email
address used to register for the Promotion 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. Potential winners will, at Sponsor’s option, be
required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

Odds of winning each of the Instant Win Game prizes depend on the number of Instant Win
prizes available divided by the number of eligible Instant Win Game plays. Instant Win Game
prizes are computer generated.
For All Prizes (Sweepstakes and Instant Win Game): All federal, state or other tax liabilities
(including, but not limited to, income taxes) arising from winning a prize valued at or over $600.00
in the Promotion will be the sole responsibility of the applicable prize winner. Each winner of a
prize valued at or over $600.00 will be issued an IRS Form 1099-MISC (or other tax documents, if
applicable) from Sponsor for the total ARV of the prize won (as stated herein) in the calendar year
won. Terms and conditions of gift cards and codes apply. The actual value of a prize that is an
electronic product is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among
other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official
Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed. No cash equivalent will be awarded for any
prize, and all prizes are non-transferable, and no substitution will be made except as provided
herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. For each prize, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute
such prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for
any reason. Winners are solely responsible for all taxes and fees associated with receipt of a
prize and/or its use. TOTAL ARV OF ALL PRIZES: $12,917.81.
Limit: One (1) Sweepstakes prize and one (1) Instant Win Game prize per person. In all cases,
if a prize winner is a resident of a jurisdiction that deems him/her to be a minor, such Prize
winner’s prize will be awarded in the name of his/her parent/legal guardian.
8. Verification of Potential Winners: Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with
these Official Rules. The potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner and the potential Instant Win
Game prize winners will be notified by mail, email or phone, at Sponsor’s discretion. Each
potential winner (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) of a prize
valued at or greater than $600 will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance,
Liability and Publicity Release (“Release”), which must be received by Administrator within five
(5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent to the applicable potential winner, in order
to claim the prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted or fails to sign and return
the Release or provide any other requested information within the required time period (if
applicable), or in the event that a prize is returned as undeliverable, the applicable potential
winner forfeits the prize. In the event that the potential Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner is
disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the Sweepstakes Grand Prize to an alternate
winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. In the event that a potential
winner of an Instant Win Game prize valued over $25 is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will
award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining
eligible game plays. There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the prize will remain
unawarded. Unclaimed prizes valued at $25 or less will not be awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled
approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the entire Promotion.
9. Release: For each winner, by receipt of a prize, such winner agrees to release and hold
harmless Sponsor, Columbia TriStar Marketing Group, Inc. (“CTMG”), Administrator, Facebook,
Inc., Twitter, Inc., and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors,
advertising/promotion agencies and each of their respective parent companies and each such
company’s officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from
and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or
damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Promotion or receipt or use or
misuse of any prize.
10. Publicity: Except where prohibited by law, and notwithstanding anything in Sponsor’s Privacy
Policy, participation in the Promotion constitutes each winner’s consent to Sponsor’s, its affiliates,
and its agents’ use of such winner’s name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or
hometown and state for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment
or consideration.
11. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the
Promotion, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs
the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes or Instant Win Game, as determined by
Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the applicable
prizes at random from among the eligible entries or plays received up to the time of the
impairment. 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 Promotion, including the
Sweepstakes or Instant Win Game or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this 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 or the Instant Win Game 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.
12. 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 Promotion; (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 Promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of
the Promotion 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
Promotion or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an Entrant’s entry or play is
confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, Entrant’s
sole remedy is another Sweepstakes entry or Instant Win Game play, if possible in Sponsor’s
sole discretion. 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 than stated
number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor
reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all
legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
13. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and
causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prize awarded shall be
resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United
States District Court for New York or an appropriate New York State Court; (2) any and all claims,
judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs
associated with entering this Promotion, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no
circumstances will any entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and each entrant 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 or otherwise increased, and its right to seek injunctive relief. All issues and questions
concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or
the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, shall be
governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, without giving
effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of New York or any other
jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State
of New York.
14. No Injunctive Relief: EACH CREATOR UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT HE/SHE
SHALL HAVE NO RIGHT TO ENJOIN OR RESTRAIN THE DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION,
ADVERTISING, PROMOTION, DISTRIBUTION OR EXPLOITATION OF THE CREATIVE BRIEF
OR THE PICTURE, OR ANY OTHER MOVIE, PRODUCTION OR PROJECT OF CTMG OR ANY
OF ITS AFFILIATES.
