All entries must be received by 11:59:59 PM PT on April 20, 2023. The Sponsor’s computer, or that of its designee, runs the official clock for the Sweepstakes and will solely determine the time by which an entry is received. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. First name, last name and company name of all entrants establishes the identity of the entrant and ultimately, who the winner is. Any effort by an entrant to misrepresent themselves through the use of aliases or e-mail addresses will disqualify entries of that entrant. All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service will apply. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void any and all entries of an entrant who submits more than the stated maximum limit of entries by using multiple/different e-mail addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods, or who Sponsor believes has attempted to tamper with, influence or impair the administration, security, fairness, or proper play of this Sweepstakes. Use of any automated system, script, macro or other means to sign-up or submit entries is prohibited and will result in disqualification of the entrant and entries or sign-ups generated by such means are void.

Prize: There are three (3) Prizes to be won in the Sweepstakes. Three winners will each receive a $100 (USD) Visa gift card (the “Prize”). All federal, state and local taxes are the sole responsibility of the winner. Total approximate retail value of the Prize is $100.00 (USD) per winner. Only the listed Prizes will be awarded. The Prizes are not exchangeable or transferable. There are no substitutions unless specified by the Sponsor. The Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to substitute the Prizes with another prize of equal or greater value.

Prize Drawing, Odds and Notification: Three (3) potential winners will be selected from among eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. The drawing will be conducted on or about April 25, 2023. Odds of winning will depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. All entries have the same chance of winning. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, award the Prize to an alternate winner selected at random. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner on or about April 25, 2023. If the Prize goes unclaimed after three attempts to contact the potential winner, the Sponsor will award the Prize to an alternate winner selected at random until the Prize is awarded. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual (and void their entry) it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of this Sweepstakes or website, or acting in a disruptive manner or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrant, Sponsor, or any of its representatives or to otherwise be acting in violation of these Rules.
