RULES, ENTRY GUIDELINES, CONDITIONS & REQUIREMENTS: There is no limit to the number of entries that may be posted on each platform. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram profile used to register will be deemed to be the registrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address connected with the profile(s) by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Employees of Sponsor, Administrator, and their parent and affiliate companies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible.
Any Entry or portion thereof that is judged, in the sole discretion of Administrator, to be obscene, profane, lewd, defamatory, to contain any third party materials, or to otherwise violate or infringe upon (or may infringe) any copyright, trademark, logo, mark that identifies a brand 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 not be considered and may disqualify the Entrant. Automated, script, macro or robotic Entries submitted by individuals or organizations will be disqualified.
Administrator has the sole discretion to determine whether Entry meets the criteria set forth in these Terms and Conditions. Entries deemed to have met such criteria will be considered “Eligible Entries.”
WINNER SELECTION: Administrator will select four (4) winners from among all Eligible Entries. The winners will be selected by 5:00 PM CT on January 6, 2017 by random drawing and immediately notified of the prize by Sponsor via email. One winner will be selected among the Entries for each wish list.
Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Administrator will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner from among all remaining Eligible Entries. The prize will be fulfilled approximately 2 to 4 weeks after the conclusion of each drawing, although no specific time frame for fulfillment is guaranteed by Administrator.
PRIZES: Four (4) prizes will be awarded following the Promotion Period. Limit one prize per household. The prizes are not transferable and cannot be assigned, substituted or redeemed for cash except at the sole discretion of Administrator.

GENERAL CONDITIONS: Administrator reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Giveaway, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Administrator’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Giveaway, as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion. Administrator reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Administrator reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Administrator’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Giveaway; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the Entry process or the Giveaway; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Giveaway or the processing of Entries; (5) late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from Entrant’s participation in the Giveaway or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.

No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Administrator reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
