WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:
Within thirty (30) days following the expiry of the Promotion Period, the Sponsor shall randomly select one (1) potential winner (the “Potential Winner”) from all eligible Entries received during the Promotion Period.
After the Potential Winner is selected, the Potential Winner shall be contacted at the email address provided in the applicable Entry. The Potential Winner must respond via the instructions provided by the email within 48 hours of the notification attempt. If the Potential Winner cannot be contacted, does not respond within 48 hours from the time the Sponsor first tries to notify Potential Winner, and/or if the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such Potential Winner will forfeit all rights to win the Sweepstakes or receive the prize. If so, an alternate Potential Winner may be selected at the Sponsor's discretion. If the Potential Winner responds in a timely and proper manner, the Potential Winner may be asked to sign and properly execute the following documents and return them via email or facsimile (and subsequently by mail or email per instructions to be provided) to Sponsor or its affiliated companies within seven (7) days of notification: an IRS W9 Tax Form or W-8BEN Tax Form and where lawful, a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If any Prize Claim Documents sent by any means are returned as undeliverable or if a contacted Potential Winner fails to properly execute and return all documents described herein in the time noted, or if a Potential Winner is found not to be eligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, the Potential Winner and associated Entry will not be considered and no prize will be issued to the Potential Winner. If the Potential Winner fulfills all the requirements listed in these Official Rules in a timely manner, the Potential Winner shall be deemed a "Grand Prize Winner" and be awarded any Prizes that he or she may be eligible for.
If any Entry is deemed to be invalid, the Potential Winner forfeits the Grand Prize. In the event that a Potential Winner of any prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by choosing from among all remaining eligible Entries. There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
The Grand Prize Winner will be announced by email on or before October 30, 2019 using the contact information provided at the time of entry. The Released Parties shall have no liability for any Grand Prize Winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential Grand Prize Winner for any reason. If a potential Grand Prize Winner does not respond within the time required by Sponsor, or if the notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to any potential Grand Prize Winner, such potential Grand Prize Winner will forfeit his or her potential prize and an alternate Grand Prize Winner may be selected.
The Grand Prize (including the Travel Voucher and Gift Card) may be subject to additional terms and conditions.

RELEASE AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:
The Released Parties will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever which is suffered (including but not limited to indirect or consequential loss) or for any personal injury suffered or sustained in connection with the Grand Prize except for any liability, which cannot be excluded by law (in which case such liability is limited to the maximum extent allowable by law). The Released Parties will not be responsible for any incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete information communicated in the course of or in connection with the Sweepstakes if the deficiency is occasioned by any cause outside the reasonable control of the Sponsor including without limitation technical malfunctions or failures. Tax implications may arise from the receipt or use of the Grand Prize. Independent financial advice should be sought.
NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP/WAIVER OF EQUITABLE RELIEF:
Each Entrant hereby acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between the Entrant and the Released Parties is not a confidential, fiduciary, or other special relationship, and that the Entrant’s decision to provide the entrant’s Entry to the Released Parties for purposes of the Sweepstakes does not place the Released Parties in a position that is any different from the position held by members of the general public with regard to elements of the Entry. Each Entrant understands and acknowledges that the Released Parties have wide access to ideas, stories, designs, and other literary materials, and that new ideas are constantly being submitted to it or being developed by their own employees. Each Entrant also acknowledges that many ideas may be competitive with, similar or identical to the Entry and/or each other in theme, idea, format or other respects. Each Entrant acknowledges and agrees that such Entrant will not be entitled to any compensation as a result of any Released Party’s use of any such similar or identical material. Each Entrant acknowledges and agrees that the Released Parties do not now and shall not have in the future any duty or liability, direct or indirect, vicarious, contributory, or otherwise, with respect to the infringement or protection of the copyright in and to the Entry. Finally, each Entrant acknowledges that, with respect to any claim by Entrant relating to or arising out of a Released Party’s actual or alleged exploitation or use of any Entry or other material submitted in connection with the Sweepstakes, the damage, if any, thereby caused to the applicable Entrant will not be irreparable or otherwise sufficient to entitle such entrant to seek injunctive or other equitable relief and Entrant’s rights and remedies in any such event shall be strictly limited to the right to recover damages, if any, in an action at law.
NO OBLIGATION TO USE:
The Released Parties shall have no obligation (express or implied) to use any Entry or any materials or content created by the Grand Prize Winner (the “Materials”), or to otherwise exploit any Entry or Materials or, if commenced, to continue the distribution or exploitation thereof, and Sponsor or the other Released Parties (as applicable) may at any time abandon the use of the Entry or Materials for any reason, with or without legal justification or excuse, and Sweepstakes shall not be entitled to any damages or other relief by reason thereof.
If the Released Parties shall desire to secure additional assignments, releases from third parties appearing in the Entry, or other documents as the Released Parties may reasonably require in order to effectuate the purposes and intents of these Official Rules, then each Entrant agrees to sign the same upon the Released Party’s request therefor.
ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OF CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS.
