Word of the Day appears in a broadcast of a syndicated episode of the Show. An

a designated web page to complete their entry. Entrant will be required to
follow all on-screen instructions requested to complete the entry and will be
required to provide the required Personal Information.

D.    
If selected as a Prizewinner (as defined below), Sponsor will send a
text message to Entrant with a URL to a special Sweepstakes website. The
website will provide Entrant with instructions on how to claim a Prize (subject
to Sponsor’s verification process). Receipt of the text message is not in and
of itself evidence that an Entrant has won a Prize. All potential Prizewinners
are subject to verification.

E.    
Limit one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes per person, regardless of the
number of phone numbers they may have, per Broadcast Day through this SMS Text
Entry method, up to a maximum of fifteen (15) total entries during the

data rates may apply. Sponsor will not be liable for any delays in the receipt
of any text messages as delivery is subject to effective transmission from
Entrant’s network provider. Text messages are provided on an “as-is” basis.

Entrant’s Personal Information, wireless carrier’s name, and the date, time and
content of the message. Such information may be used by Sponsor to contact

3. Sweepstakes Share
Bonus Entry:

Entrant may earn bonus (additional)
entries into the Sweepstakes. After an Entrant to the Sweepstakes submits their
entry form through the method(s) described above, Entrant will be prompted with
an opportunity to obtain additional entries into the Sweepstakes by completing
one or more of the following:

 

A.    
Share on Twitter: Using the Sweepstakes interface, Entrant may
select the option to “Share on Twitter” which will generate a pre-approved
Tweet which Entrant can post to their Twitter timeline a maximum of one (1)
time during the Sweepstakes Period, regardless of the number of Twitter
accounts Entrant may have. Entrant must post the pre-approved Tweet that is
auto-populated by the Sweepstakes interface as-is and without alteration or
addition to earn an entry into this Sweepstakes. For posting to their timeline
using this feature, Entrant will receive a maximum of one (1) bonus entry into
the Sweepstakes, regardless of the number of Share on Twitter tweets posted to
Entrant’s timeline during the Sweepstakes Period.

B.    
Refer a Friend: Using the Sweepstakes interface, Entrant may
select the option to “Refer a Friend”. Entrant will be given the option to send
a “Refer a Friend” message via Twitter or email.

1.        
Email: Using the email invitation tool to invite
friends to enter the Sweepstakes, Entrant will be provided with a customized
email that includes a unique referral link. Entrant may only send an email
invitation to persons with whom they have an existing relationship and with
whom a message from them would not be considered spam. Entrant may add to, but
may not remove or modify any auto-populated copy included within the customized
email generated by the Sweepstakes interface (including, without limitation,
any disclosure regarding the rules of the Sweepstakes or regarding the fact
that Entrant may earn bonus entries through a referee’s use of your referral
link). Entrant will receive one (1) bonus entry into the Sweepstakes for each
individual who uses Entrant’s unique referral link to submit a valid entry into
the Sweepstakes. For clarity, Entrant will not earn bonus entries for using the
email invitation tool, rather the bonus entry will only be earned, as described
below, for a valid entry into the Sweepstakes made using Entrant’s referral
link obtained via email.

2.        
Twitter: Using the Twitter referral tool to invite
their friends/followers to enter the Sweepstakes, Entrant will be provided with
a customized Tweet that includes a unique referral link, which Entrant will
authorize to be published to their personal timeline. Entrant may add to, but
may not remove or modify any auto-populated copy included within the Tweet
generated by the Sweepstakes interface (including, without limitation, any
disclosure regarding the rules of the Sweepstakes or regarding the fact that Entrant
may earn bonus entries through a referee’s use of your referral link). Entrant
may post such referral Tweet a maximum of one (1) time per day each weekday
during the Sweepstakes Period regardless of the number of Twitter accounts
Entrant may have. Entrant will receive one (1) bonus entry into the Sweepstakes
for each individual who uses Entrant’s unique referral link to submit a valid
entry into the Sweepstakes. For clarity, Entrant will not earn bonus entries
for using the Twitter referral tool, rather the bonus entry will only be
earned, as described below, for a valid entry into the Sweepstakes made using
Entrant’s referral link obtained via Twitter. Anyone using multiple Twitter
accounts will be found ineligible.

 

For each valid entry into the
Sweepstakes made using Entrant’s referral link, which was obtained through the
email invitation message or the Tweet post described herein, Entrant will
receive one (1) additional entry into the Sweepstakes, up to a maximum of
one-hundred (100) additional “Refer a Friend” entries total during the
Sweepstakes Period regardless of the method used or the number of referrals
received.

 

By submitting your information via
Twitter, you agree to the Twitter Terms of Service and privacy notice located
at: https://twitter.com/tos. For the Share on Twitter bonus entry to be
valid, during the Sweepstakes Period and for thirty (30) days thereafter,
Entrant’s Twitter profile must be public, and thus viewable by the Sponsor and
its agents, and Entrant must include the hashtag #Sweepstakes in their post. To
the extent that Entrant’s Tweet promotes Sponsor, Entrant is responsible for
disclosing in their referral Tweet that they received an entry into this
Sweepstakes in exchange for providing a promotional message or may receive an entry
into this Sweepstakes in exchange for use of their referral link to enter the
Sweepstakes. If Entrant does not
have a Twitter account, and would like to create one for free, visit
Twitter.com or download the app in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store
and follow the instructions to set up an account. All posts to Twitter must
comply with the applicable Terms of Service and may not contain obscene, lewd,
derogatory, infringing, illegal, or inappropriate content, communicate messages
inconsistent with the positive images with which Sponsor wishes to associate
itself, or otherwise violate these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in
their sole and absolute discretion.

 

Multiple entrants are not permitted
to share the same mobile phone, email account, or Twitter account. Entrant may
not send more than one (1) email invitation to the same person during the
Sweepstakes Period. Message and data rates may apply. All rules, guidelines,
and terms and conditions of Twitter, Inc. apply. By including the hashtag
#Sweepstakes in their Tweet post, Entrant is confirming their acceptance and
agreement to these Official Rules.

 

Each Entrant is limited to one (1) original entry per Broadcast Day via
the SMS Text Entry method, one (1) original entry per Broadcast Day via the
Online Entry method, one (1) bonus entry into the Sweepstakes during the
Sweepstakes Period for the ‘Share on Twitter’ entry method, and a total of
one-hundred (100) bonus entries into the Sweepstakes during the Sweepstakes
Period via the Sweepstakes Share Bonus Entry method, for a maximum total of one
hundred and thirty-one (131) entries into the Sweepstakes. Additional entries
will be disqualified, as will incomplete entries, entries not submitted in
accordance with these Official Rules, and entries not received during the
Sweepstakes Period. Any attempt(s) made by the same individual to submit more
than the permitted number of entries by using multiple emails/mobile
numbers/accounts, false contact information, or otherwise may result in the
Entrant being disqualified. Entries generated by a script, computer programs,
macro, programmed, robotic or other automated means are void and may be
disqualified. Entries that are in excess of the stated limits, incomplete,
illegible, corrupted, damaged, destroyed, forged, false, lost, late or
misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may
be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
Entries submitted by Entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements
(including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. All
materials submitted become the physical property of Sponsor and will not be
returned. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an Entrant, entry will
be deemed submitted by the registered account holder of the email address or
social media account associated with the entry, provided that person is
eligible. Prizewinners may be required to show proof of being the registered
account holder. “Registered account holder” is defined as the natural person
assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service
provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for
the applicable domain or to a social media user name
by the applicable social platform. In the event a dispute regarding the
identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved
to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. Those
who do not follow all of the instructions, provide the required information in
their entry form, or abide by these Official Rules and/or other instructions of
Sponsor may be disqualified. The Sweepstakes Entities may run multiple
campaigns, contests, sweepstakes or other promotions simultaneously. Entry into
one (1) campaign, contest, or sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any
other.

 

Entrant’s entry (or
entries) must be received by Sponsor between 6:00:00 a.m. PT on Monday, June 28,
2021, and
5:59:59 a.m. PT on Saturday, July 17, 2021. Each Word of the Day is valid until
5:59:59 a.m. PT on the Broadcast Day on which the Word of the Day appears in a
broadcast of a syndication episode of the Show, after which time the Word of
the Day is reset.

 

It is the sole
responsibility of the Entrant to notify Sponsor in writing of any changes to
Personal Information, including email addresses, by mailing such notice (for
receipt during the Sweepstakes Period) to: THE BIG BANG THEORY “Galaxy of Giveaways”
Sweepstakes, c/o Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, 4411 W. Olive

PRIZEWINNER NOTIFICATION:

Each potential
Prizewinner will be notified using the Personal Information provided during
entry by any of email, telephone, mail, text message, a post on the potentially
winning entry, or through a direct message on a social media platform (if
applicable) (method to be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion) in a
commercially reasonable time after the drawing. The potential Prizewinner must
respond within twenty-four (24) hours of notification, and in accordance with
the instructions in the notification, or the Prize may, in Sponsor’s sole
discretion, be forfeited. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for
false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information.
Notification is deemed to have occurred immediately upon sending of an email,
text, direct message on a social media platform, and/or placing of a phone
call, one (1) day after sending via a delivery service, or two (2) days after
mailing. A potential Prizewinner who provides a P.O. Box may be required to
provide an alternative physical address and this may cause a delay in
notification and acceptance, so use of a P.O. Box is discouraged. The
Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for electronic communications that are
undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any
kind, insufficient space in Entrant’s email or voicemail inbox to receive
messages, or any limitations associated with receipt or delivery of text
messages or direct messages.

 

Each potential
Prizewinner may be required to submit an affidavit of eligibility / release of
liability / prize acceptance agreement (collectively, the “Affidavit”) and return the Affidavit within the time period
specified at notification before being eligible to receive their Prize. In
addition, for any prize with a value of $600 or more, or in the event the
potential Prizewinner has been awarded prizes in other promotions operated by
Sponsor for which this prize will cause the total value of all prizes received
in a calendar year from the Sponsor to be $600 or more, the potential
Prizewinner shall be required to return a completed IRS Form W-9 to the Sponsor
prior to Sponsor’s delivery of the prize (the “W9”). All Prize claims,
including any required Affidavit, are subject to verification by Sponsor. If
any potential Prizewinner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit
and W9 within the time period required by Sponsor or if the Prize or Prize
notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed or returned as
undeliverable to such potential Prizewinner, such potential Prizewinner may be
disqualified and an alternate Prizewinner may be selected. Non-compliance shall
result in disqualification. If any potential Prizewinner is found to be
ineligible, or if they have not complied with these Official Rules and all
other additional or supplemental rules or instructions, or if the potential
Prizewinner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the Prize, or
declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Prizewinner may
be disqualified and an alternate potential Prizewinner may be selected. If, for
any reason, more bona fide Prizewinners come forward seeking to claim Prizes in
excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Rules,
the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number
of Prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons
making purportedly valid claims for such Prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing
shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The
Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late,
lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the
potential Prizewinner.

 

ADDITIONAL PRIZE INFORMATION:

Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a background check on the
potential Prizewinner and each potential Prizewinner agrees to execute any
additional documentation necessary for and to cooperate fully in any such
background check conducted by or on behalf of Sponsor.

 

Sponsor will not
replace any lost or stolen cash, cash equivalent, gift cards, or other forms of
prize distributed. In the event of such a loss, Sponsor shall have the right,
in Sponsor’s sole discretion, to disqualify the Prizewinner or to award to that
Prizewinner the remaining elements of the Prize which shall constitute full
satisfaction of Sponsor’s prize obligation to the Prizewinner and no additional
compensation will be awarded.

 

Terms and conditions of any gift card awarded apply. Any taxes (federal,
state, and local) and all other costs and expenses associated with Prize
acceptance or use and not specified in these Official Rules as being part of a
Prize will be the sole responsibility of the Prizewinner. Any Prize details not
specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole
discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any Prize or any portion
thereof with another Prize or Prize component of equal or greater value for any
reason, including unavailability of the stated Prize. Entrants waive the right
to assert, as a cost of winning any Prize, any and all costs of verification
and any liability and publicity which might arise from claiming or seeking to
claim said Prize.

 

If Prizewinner does not accept the entire Prize, the unaccepted Prize (or
part of the Prize) will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further
obligation with respect to that Prize or any portion of that Prize. Sponsor
will have no liability for a potential Prizewinner’s failure or inability to
accept a Prize for any reason. Any failure to use a Prize after acceptance does
not relieve the Prizewinner of their tax obligations associated with winning
the Prize. No transfers, prize substitutions or cash redemptions will be made,
except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prizewinner is strictly prohibited from
selling, auctioning, trading or otherwise transferring the opportunity to
receive the Prize, except with Sponsor’s permission, which may be granted or
withheld for any reason in its sole discretion. Prizes will only be shipped or
otherwise provided to the verified Prizewinner’s address in the fifty (50) United
States or D.C. (unless Sponsor agrees otherwise in its sole discretion).

GENERAL CONDITIONS OF ENTRY:

All Entrants, as a
condition of entry, agree that they have not been required to purchase any kind
of Internet, wireless, or data service whatsoever in order to participate in
and/or enter the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for
the actions of Entrants in connection with the Sweepstakes, including Entrants’
attempts to circumvent the Official Rules or otherwise interfere with the
administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the
Sweepstakes. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of this
Sweepstakes, or whom Sponsor believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption
or damage may be disqualified. Additionally, any attempt to cheat the
Sweepstakes, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may
result in immediate disqualification of Entrant, as well as other possible
consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future
sweepstakes. ANY ATTEMPT BY A PERSON TO DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE (INCLUDING ANY
SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM OR APPLICATION) OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF
THIS SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH
AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK ALL LEGAL AND EQUITABLE
REMEDIES FROM AND AGAINST ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY
LAW. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to
disqualify (or terminate the Prize of) any individual who is found to be, or
suspected of, acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in
an unsportsmanlike, obscene, immoral, or disruptive manner, or with the intent
to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.

 

Entrant further
understands and agrees that all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of
California (“Section 1542”) and any similar law of any state or territory of
the United States that may be applicable with respect to the foregoing
release(s) are hereby expressly and forever waived. Entrant acknowledges that
Section 1542 provides that: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS THAT
THE CREDITOR OR RELEASING PARTY DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN THEIR FAVOR
AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE AND THAT, IF KNOWN BY THEM, WOULD HAVE
MATERIALLY AFFECTED THEIR SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR OR RELEASED PARTY.” The
releases hereunder are intended to apply to all claims not known or suspected
to exist with the intent of waiving the effect of laws requiring the intent to
release future unknown claims.

 

GOVERNING LAW:

The parties agree that
the Sweepstakes and these Official Rules will be governed, construed, and
interpreted under the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to
any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California
or any other jurisdiction) which would cause the application of the laws of any
jurisdiction other than the State of California.

 

 

DISPUTE RESOLUTION:

Entrant, Sponsor, and
the other Released Parties (each, a “Party”
and collectively the “Parties”) each
agree to fully and finally settle all disputes pertaining to the Sweepstakes,
administration of the Sweepstakes, and/or these Official Rules only through
binding arbitration; provided, however, Sponsor shall be entitled to seek
injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles
County, California and any other court with jurisdiction over the Parties. In
arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s
decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment
on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The Parties agree
that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising
out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by binding
arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules
& Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”)
or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a
hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for
Arbitration”, then either Party can elect to have the arbitration administered
by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”)
or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an
in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Los Angeles,
California or – where required by the arbitration service’s rules – in or near
your home town. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules
will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an
individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that
involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class
actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds
that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to
arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent
jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the
administrative and arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but
specifically excluding any travel or other costs of Entrant to attend the
arbitration hearing). Either Party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring
qualifying claims in small claims court.

 

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:

BY ENTERING THE
SWEEPSTAKES, ENTRANT AGREES THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A)
ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED
WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES, OR ANY PRIZE AWARDED, WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY,
WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (B) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS,
AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED
(IF ANY) NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), BUT IN NO EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’
FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (C) UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY ENTRANT BE
PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND ENTRANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES
ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES,
LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES
NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES
MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND (D) ENTRANTS’ REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A
CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND ENTRANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO
SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF, PROVIDED HOWEVER THAT NOTHING IN THESE
OFFICIAL RULES WILL RESTRICT A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT’S RIGHT (IF ANY) TO PURSUE
PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AS PERMITTED BY LAW IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE
DISPUTE-RESOLUTION PROVISION ABOVE.

 

MISCELLANEOUS:

The invalidity or
unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules or the Affidavit will
not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event
that any provision of the Official Rules or the Affidavit is determined to be
invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain
in effect and will 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 or any other guidelines, instructions,
policies, or term will not constitute a waiver of that provision. Entrant
agrees to waive any rights to claim ambiguity of these Official Rules. Headings
are solely for convenience of reference and will not be deemed to affect in any
manner the meaning or intent of the documents or any provision hereof. In the
event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other
statements contained in any Sweepstakes-related materials, privacy policy or
terms of use on any website, social media platform or application and/or the
terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail,
govern and control and the discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and
absolute discretion.
