Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same Address, registrations, identities, or logins.
- SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WINNERS:
- Drawing. The Winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries collected during the Sweepstakes Entry Period taking place on or about December 24th, 2022 at 9AM Pacific Time. The drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions and interpretations on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes and these Rules are final and binding in all respects. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant or winner and may refuse to award a prize to a person who is not eligible or has violated a rule, gained unfair advantage in the Sweepstakes, or obtained winner status using fraudulent means. If there is a dispute about the identity of an Entrant, the Prize will be awarded to the natural person to whom the email address is assigned by the internet service provider responsible for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If Winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with the Rules, the Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Winner will be awarded the prize in a separate random drawing.
- Odds. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received, according to the eligibility requirements in the Sweepstakes. Ten eligible entries will be selected from all of the entries received.
- Notification to Winner. The potential Winners will be notified via Instagram direct message, email or other method based on contact information provided by entrant. Sponsor will not be liable for any potential prize winning notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by any potential Winner for any reason.

If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the Winners from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the Force Majeure Event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such selection process will be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
