3. How the Sweepstakes Will Work: Entrants to the Sweepstakes will vote on which three of
the eight potential technology product prizes offered by the Sponsor will be the three (3) prize
drawings ultimately awarded to three of our lucky Sweepstakes winners. The Sweepstakes will
begin with the Sponsor offering entrants eight (8) technology products as potential prizes for the
three (3) prize drawings: two (2) laptops, two (2) tablets, two (2) monitors, and two (2) printers.
In the first round of the Sweepstakes, these eight technology products will be grouped in groups
of twos so that there will be a total of four groups with two technology products in each group
competing against one another. Each entrant will vote on which technology product it wishes to
proceed to the next level for each of the four of these groups. Whichever technology product
receives the most votes in its respective group will proceed to the next level and the losing
technology product in that group will be eliminated as a potential prize drawing. Votes cast by
entrants during the first round must be submitted between March 8, 2018 to March 14, 2018 in
order to count. In the second round of the Sweepstakes (hereinafter referred to as the “Semi-
Finals”), the remaining four technology products will compete against one another to become
one of the three prize drawings. The remaining four technology products will again be grouped
in groups of two so that there will be a total of two groups with two technology products in each
group competing against one another. Once more, each entrant will vote on which technology
product it wishes to proceed to the next level for each of the two of these groups. Whichever
technology products receives the most votes in its respective group will proceed to the next level
and the losing technology product in that group will be eliminated as a potential prize drawing.
Votes cast by entrants during the Semi-Finals must be submitted between March 15, 2018 to
March 22, 2018 in order to count. Each entrant will have to once again enter the Sweepstakes in
order to be eligible to vote in the Semi-Finals. In the final round of the Sweepstakes (hereinafter
referred to as the “Championship”), the remaining two technology products will compete against
one another to become the grand prize drawing. Each entrant will vote on which of the two
remaining technology products it wishes to win. Whichever technology product of the remaining
two technology products receives the most votes will be the grand prize drawing while the
technology product of the two remaining technology products receiving the lesser of the votes
will be the second place prize drawing. The two technology products in the Semi-Finals will
compete for the third place prize drawing and whoever wins the most products is the winner.
Entrants must cast their votes for the Championship winner between March 23, 2018 to March
31, 2018. Each entrant will have to once again enter the Sweepstakes in order to be eligible to
vote in the Championship Round. In order to be eligible to win the grand prize drawing, the
second place prize drawing, or the third place prize drawing, an entrant must vote in all three
rounds (the first round, the Semi-Finals, and the Championship) of the Sweepstakes. In order to
be eligible to win the second place prize drawing an entrant must vote the first round and Semi-
Final round. In order for an entrant to win the third place prize drawing, an entrant must vote in
the first round.

Official Rules, the Sponsor shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual
who tampers with the entry process and to void any entries submitted fraudulently, to cancel,
terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes, and/or conduct a random drawing to select the
prize winners from all non-suspect entries received prior to action taken, or as otherwise deemed
fair and appropriate by Sponsor. If the Sweepstakes is cancelled, modified, suspended or
terminated, notice will be posted on the Website. The Sponsor reserves the right to prosecute any
fraudulent entries to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law.
Any attempt by an entrant to deliberately damage any web site or 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 seek damages from any such person, to the fullest
extent permissible under applicable law.
