Limit one (1) entry per person and/or per e-mail address. All requested information must be completed to enter and to be eligible to win. Proof of entering information at the Website is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry. Any communication, data or other information transmitted by an entrant in connection with the Sweepstakes, whether by electronic mail, data survey/query or otherwise, is and will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. Entries become the exclusive property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. By submitting an entry, each entrant grants and hereby irrevocably assigns to Sponsor the exclusive right to reproduce, publish (in all media including online media), edit, use, transfer or sell the entry, data or other information collected, or any part thereof, for all commercial purposes, in perpetuity, throughout the universe, at no charge to Sponsor and without compensation to the entrant. NOTE: Internet entry must be made by the entrant only at the Website. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other web site or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes.

The approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $14. Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable. No cash alternative or prize substitutions will be allowed except that Sponsor retains the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value (or at Sponsor’s election, the cash value of the applicable prize) in the event a stated prize is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.

Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or the Website, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsman-like or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
