In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who submitted the Entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected Entry will be deemed ineligible. Sponsor in its sole discretion, may accept mis-typed Twitter or Vine Entries. Sweepstakes Entities shall not be responsible for defective, incorrect or inaccurate Entry whether caused by entrants, or by any of the equipment, printing, or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes, or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of Registration, or Entries in the Sweepstakes. The Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of Entries or Registrations.
Content Restrictions. As determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, pictures and videos must: [a] be sufficiently in focus, [b] clearly depict the Participant at the Event; [c] include at least a head-shot of the Participant that can be used to identify him or her; and, [d] not, along with any Optional Material, be offensive. Any picture or video Entry or portion thereof (including by way of example, Optional Material, or any gesture, content or text displayed on any shirt, hat, other clothing, or that otherwise appears in the picture) that is, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, obscene, lewd, defamatory, hateful, discriminatory, violent, contains any third party mention, disparaging to any third party, Sweepstakes Entities or any third party company, or otherwise violates or infringes (or may infringe) any copyright, trademark, logo, or other proprietary right of any person living or deceased (including but not limited to rights of privacy or publicity or portrayal in a false light) or entity, or is otherwise objectionable, will disqualify that Entry.

Entrants represent and warrant that the materials submitted will not infringe or violate any right whatsoever, including, without limitation, any personal rights (e.g., defamation, privacy, false light, moral right, etc.) or any property rights (e.g., copyright, trademark, right to ideas, etc.) of any person or entity and the use thereof will result in no third party liability or obligations.

Use of a wireless mobile device may only be available via participating wireless carriers, and will result in airtime and carrier charges according to the terms and conditions of your service agreement with your wireless carrier. You understand that by providing your cell phone, Twitter account, Vine account, or email as part of an Entry, if you are a potential winner, Sponsor may contact you via these means, which may also result in charges described above.
ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE SWEEPSTAKES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ELIGIBILITY, ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES.
4. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Each day of the Event on or about 4:00 pm one potential winner will be randomly chosen from among all Entries received no later than 3:00:00 pm that day. Sponsor will contact the potential winner using the email address, or by sending a private message via Twitter using the social media profile associated with the Entry. Sponsor must receive a reply by email or a direct Tweet from each potential winner within forty-eight (48) hours of the winner notification being sent as measured by Sponsor’s email servers or Twitter’s servers as applicable, or an alternate winner may be chosen. Potential winners will have won the prize subject to their fulfillment of all requirements under the Rules. Potential winners will be asked to complete, sign and return Sponsor’s Prize Claim Documents defined below. Once returned fully executed and verified by Sponsor, Sponsor will declare the entrant to be a winner. The odds of winning depend on the total number of Entries received prior to 3:00 pm on that day’s drawing.
Disqualification. At the sole discretion of the Sponsor, disqualification, and forfeiture may result from any of the following (collectively “Disqualified”) and an alternate winner selected as described herein:  potential winner’s failure to timely respond to notification of being selected as a winner, or to any other communication sent to the potential/winner, within forty-eight (48) hours or such other time if explicitly provided by Sponsor;  potential winner’s failure to provide Sponsor with satisfactory proof of age, identity, residency or other eligibility as may be requested;  potential winner’s failure to validly claim any prize; and  any other non-compliance with Rules. In the event the potential winner is Disqualified, Sponsor will make at least two subsequent attempts to award that Prize by selecting alternate, potential winners in accordance with the above procedure, after which the Prize in question may at Sponsor’s sole discretion, go un-awarded. If Sponsor believes, in its sole discretion, that a legal issue presents a significant problem related to awarding a prize to a selected entrant, another entrant will be selected instead if possible.
Answering Mathematical Skill Question. If a potential winner is a resident of Canada, Mexico, any country in the Asia-Pacific or Japan (“APJ”) region, or other jurisdiction where the promotion is similarly prohibited, then as a condition of receiving the Prize, the selected potential winner may be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill question, asked verbally by telephone. The question must be answered within five minutes, and without the benefit of any assistance (including without limitation, any calculation devices).

No cash or other substitution may be made, except by Sponsor, which reserves the right (except where contrary to federal, state, or local laws or regulations) to substitute a prize in whole or in part with another prize of comparable or greater value if the intended prize or any portion thereof is not available for any reason as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Prizes are applicable for distribution to consumers in the U.S.A. market, and may not function, be exportable, or supported by its issuer outside of the U.S.A.

Failure to return any of the Prize Claim Documents completed and fully executed within ten (10) days of prize notification and receiving such Prize Claim Documents (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), except where prohibited by applicable law, may cause the prize to be forfeited and potentially awarded to an alternate as solely determined by the Sponsor.
