    For purposes of this Sweepstakes, an entry is “received” when the Entry Site’s servers record the entry information. Proof of sending (such as, without limitation, a printed, saved or copied automated receipt confirming entry, a “thanks for entering” screen or message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of an entry for purposes of this Sweepstakes.

    Only complete and valid entries will be eligible. By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant (if a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) warrants that he or she has read and agrees to abide and be bound by these Official Rules and that he or she is not prohibited from participating in the Sweepstakes. Eligible entrants (if a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) agree that Sponsor shall retain full authority, in its sole discretion, to interpret and administer these Official Rules, and entrants agree to be bound by all decisions and interpretations made in good faith by the Sponsor, or its designee. There is a limit of one (1) entry per person. If a person violates the entry limit, only the initial entry will be retained. However, Sponsor/Sweepstakes Administrator reserve the right to disqualify such person altogether and void all his/her entries if Sponsor/Sweepstakes Administrator determine in their sole discretion that such person has repeatedly or egregiously violated the entry limit or if he/she has attempted to defraud Sponsor/Sweepstakes Administrator in conjunction therewith.

    All entries become property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Entries that are late, incomplete, garbled/jumbled, illegible, misdirected, lost, damaged, delayed, inaccessible, stolen or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules are void. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other website or e-mail address, including, without limitation, commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes. Promotion Entities are not responsible for technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to, electronic malfunctioning of any telephone network, computer hardware or software; any failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions or any combination thereof; or for any error, human, technical or otherwise. Sponsor and/or Sweepstakes Administrator reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to disqualify any fraudulent entries or any individual it finds tampering with the operation or entry process of the Sweepstakes or acting in violation of these Official Rules. If, for any reason, an entry is determined by Sponsor [or Sweepstakes Administrator] to have been erroneously deleted, lost or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant's sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if feasible; if not feasible for any reason, Sponsor [and/or Sweepstakes Administrator] shall not have any liability to entrant in conjunction with same.

On or about July 18, 2019, Administrator – an independent, third party judging agency - will randomly select one (1) entry, from all eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Entry Period, as the potential winner of the below defined prize (the “Grand Prize”). Decisions of the Administrator will be final and binding on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. If a potential winner does not respond within ten(10) business days of the first notification attempt, is found to be ineligible, does not comply with these Official Rules or declines to accept the Grand Prize, the potential winner may be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion, and in such case Administrator may select an alternate potential winner based on a random drawing using the process set out in this clause.
