entrants’ acceptance of these Official Rules.



 



Limit
of one (1) entry per person during the Entry Period will be accepted.  Subsequent attempts made by the same

excess of the stated limits, incomplete, illegible, corrupted, damaged,
destroyed, forged, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not

provided that person is eligible.  Winners
may be required to show proof of being the registered account holder.  Registered account holder is defined as the

its sole and absolute discretion.  The

other.





4. 
Selection of Winners and Prize Claiming
.  There will be two (2) grand prize winners and
five (5) runner-up winners selected for this Sweepstakes.  The potential winners will be selected
through a random drawing from among all other entrants who submitted a comment
during the Entry Period at the end of the Live Stream from all eligible entries
received in accordance with these Official Rules.  Sponsor will announce the winners at the
conclusion of the Live Stream.  Sponsor
will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Official Rules, of
administration of the Sweepstakes, and selection of the winners.  Decisions of the Sponsor as to the selection
of the winners will be final.  Unless
Sponsor already has contact information (e.g.,
email address) for the potential winners, the potential winners will be
notified after the Entry Period by posting a comment under the potentially
winning post and Sponsor will provide an email address (or other contact
information) where the potential winners can send or otherwise deliver their
prize claim.  Notification is deemed to
have occurred immediately upon the posting of a comment on the potentially
winning post via Facebook or sending of an email to the potential winners and the
potential winners must respond within twenty-four (24) hours or such individual
with otherwise be automatically disqualified. 
The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for failure of any
potential winner to contact Sponsor within twenty-four (24) hours after being
notified that they are a potential winner.



 



The
potential winners 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 his or her prize.  If any
potential prize winner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit
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 prize winner, such potential prize winner may
be disqualified and an alternate may be selected.  Non-compliance shall result in disqualification
and award of the prizes to an alternate winner. 
Parents or legal guardians of any prize winner under the age of majority
may be required to also sign the Affidavit in order for the prize winner to be
qualified to receive his or her prize. 
If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she
has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner
cannot attend or participate in any portion of the prize, or declines a prize
for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an
alternate potential winner may be selected. 
If, for any reason, more bona fide winners 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 prizes.  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 winners, or if potential winner

claimed, will be awarded.  Sponsor is not
responsible for and will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen prizes or
any prize that is undeliverable or does not reach a winner because of an
incorrect or changed address.  If a

of the prize will be forfeited and Sponsor will have no further obligation with

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. 
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY,
SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. 



13.  Dispute Resolution.  The
parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration;
provided, however, the Sponsor shall be entitled to seek injunctive or
equitable relief in the state and federal courts in San Mateo 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 is 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 San Mateo County, California.  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 San Mateo 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.

15. 
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 will not constitute a waiver of that provision.  Entrants agree 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 Facebook
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.
