Normal airtime and carrier charges and other charges may apply to text messages and will be billed to Entrant’s wireless phone bill or deducted from Entrant’s pre-paid balance.

Sponsor reserves the right to remove any entries it deems inappropriate, such as those that contain obscenity, racism, libel or disparagement of any person, group or people. Sponsor is not responsible or liable for lost, stolen, mutilated, incomplete, incorrect, delayed, late, interrupted, illegible or misdirected entries. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for any computer, telephone, cable, network, satellite, electronic or Internet hardware or software malfunctions, failures, connections, availability, or illegible transmissions, or service provider/Internet/website/use net accessibility or availability, traffic congestion, or unauthorized human intervention.

Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds, in its sole discretion, to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, to be acting in violation of the Official Rules or for any other reason as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Use of robotic, automatic, macro, programmed, or like entry methods is prohibited and will void all such entries by such methods and invalidate the Entrant.

If a dispute occurs on entries submitted by multiple users having the same email account, the authorized subscriber of the account used to enter the Sweepstakes at the actual time of the entry will be deemed the valid Entrant. The Authorized account subscriber is deemed the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization, which assigns email addresses, or the domain associated with the submitted email address and who uses that email address to open an account.

DETERMINATION OF WINNER: Three (3) potential winners will be randomly chosen from the pool of qualified Entrants on the business day following the Promotional Period. The potential winners will be notified by e-mail and/or phone. Potential winners must respond to Sponsor’s notification, and complete all required forms and agreements, including verifications of eligibility to be deemed an “Official Winner.” If a potential winner is ineligible under these Official Rules or fails to respond or complete the required forms within 10 calendar days of notification, the potential winner shall be disqualified and Sponsor shall select an alternate potential winner using the same method. The Prize will be awarded when the forms, agreements, and verifications have been received by Sponsor. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for electronic communications that are undeliverable due to any form of active or passive filtering of any insufficient space to receive messages in Entrant’s email or other account. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Sweepstakes by giving such notice in any form and manner deemed appropriate by Sponsor; in which case, the Prize will be awarded from all eligible entries previously received up to (or if applicable, after) the modification, suspension or termination date and under these Official Rules.

PRIVACY: Personal information submitted with the Sweepstakes shall be handled under these Official Rules and Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, which may be accessed at https://help.overstock.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/65.

PUBLICITY: Where permitted by law and Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, winner agrees to grant to Sponsor, and Sponsor’s licensees, affiliates and assigns, a release that includes, but is not limited to, the right to print, publish, broadcast and use, worldwide, in any media now known or developed, including but not limited to the World Wide Web, the winner’s name, image, portrait, picture, voice, likeness, and biographical information as news or information and for advertising and promotional purposes without additional consideration. Further, without such additional compensation, the winner agrees to appear for, or provide biographical information for, any presentation or other activity which may include filming/audio/video/electronic or other recordings and/or interviews as determined by Sponsor. Failure to make such appearances or grant such rights may cause disqualification with an alternate potential winner selected from eligible entries previously received and under these Official Rules. Sponsor will bear such reasonable costs and expenses which Sponsor, in its discretion, deems appropriate for winner to appear for a presentation or other activity.

GENERAL CONDITIONS: Potential Winner must sign and return within 10 calendar days of notification, any documents sent by Sponsor related to the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to the Sweepstakes “Winner Agreement” which includes an “affirmation of eligibility,” a “publicity release,” and a “waiver of liability.” If the potential winner fails to return documents as specified or if the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the Entrant may, at Sponsor’s discretion, be disqualified, and an alternate potential winner will be selected from eligible entries previously received. No potential winner will be declared an Official Winner until Sponsor has received the documents in this section.

DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: IN NO EVENT WILL SPONSOR BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF YOUR PARTICIPATION OR INABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWEEPSTAKES.

INDEMNITY: By entering this Sweepstakes, each Entrant releases, agrees to indemnify and holds harmless Sponsor and their respective employees¸ officers, directors, representatives, and agents from any injury, loss, death, damage, action, claim, demand or other liability that may occur from Entrant’s participation or inability to participate in the Sweepstakes or from the acceptance, possession, use or misuse of any prize awarded, or participation in any Sweepstakes-related activity.

DISPUTES: If a dispute occurs as to the identity of an Entrant, entry will be declared made by the registered account holder of the Device or email address used to enter the Sweepstakes, but only if that person otherwise meets the eligibility criteria in the Official Rules. “Registered Account Holder” is defined as the natural person assigned to a mobile telephone number (“MTN”) by the wireless service provider responsible for assigning wireless phone numbers for the telephone exchange associated with the submitted MTN. Entrant may be required to provide Sponsor with proof he/she is the registered account holder of the MTN or email address used in connection with the potentially winning entry. If there is a dispute as to the winning entrant after applying the dispute procedures detailed, Sponsor may disqualify the potential winner and select an alternate winner. If a dispute of a winner results in a corporation being deemed the Registered Account Holder and awarding of a prize conflicts with that corporation’s written policy, the prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. The corporation is not entitled to claim the prize. As a condition of participating or attempting to participate in the Sweepstakes, Entrant agrees that all disputes which cannot be resolved between the parties, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Sweepstakes, shall be resolved individually by binding arbitration, without resort to any form of class action, exclusively before a single arbitrator according to the rules of the American Arbitration Association.
