Immediate family members (parents, step-parents, legal guardians, children, step-children, siblings, step-siblings, spouses, and domestic partners, regardless of where they reside) and/or those living in the same household of such individuals are also ineligible to enter or win.  SeedProd will not administrator this Promotion, but ACBL will utilize certain SeedProd software to conduct the Promotion.  The Promotion is void where prohibited by law.

  1. WINNER SELECTION/PRIZE LIMIT: Within seventy-two (72) hours after the close of each Entry Period, potential prize winners for that Entry Period will be selected, using the prize order indicated in the chart in section 3 above, by random drawings from all eligible entries received during that Entry Period.  Non-winning entries will be rolled over into subsequent drawings for that Entry Period, but non-winning entries for one Entry Period will not be rolled over into drawings for any other Entry Period.  Any potential prize winner who is a resident of Canada may be required in a Document (as defined in section 7 below) to correctly answer, without mechanical or other assistance, a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question posed by Sponsor.  Limit one (1) prize per individual for the Promotion.
  2. WINNER NOTIFICATION/RELEASES/PRIZE DELIVERY: Within forty-eight (48) hours after each drawing, Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via the email address used by the potential winner to register for the Promotion.  That notification may contain one (1) or more documents (each a “Document,” and, collectively, the “Documents”), including, but not necessarily limited to, an Affidavit/Declaration of Eligibility, Publicity Release, Release of Liability, and Agreement to Prize Terms, that the potential winner must complete and return to Sponsor.  If a potential winner (a) does not, within forty-eight (48) hours after Sponsor’s initial notification attempt, complete, sign, and return all required Documents, (b) is not in compliance with the Official Rules, (c) does not meet the eligibility requirements, (d) declines the prize, or (e) fails to correctly answer the time-limited mathematical skill-testing question (if the potential prize winner is a resident of Canada), the potential winner may be disqualified, and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, as determined by random drawing from the remaining non-winning eligible entries received by Sponsor during the applicable Entry Period.  Only one (1) alternate potential winner per prize may be selected through this process, after which the prize will remain unawarded.  Within seven (7) business days after Sponsor has, to its sole satisfaction, verified a potential winner’s eligibility and identity, the prize will be mailed, using United States Postal Service Priority Mail, to the street address provided by the potential winner during the verification process.
  3. PRIZE CONDITIONS: Prizes are not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for monetary value or for any other form of compensation. If for any reason a prize is not available, Sponsor will substitute another prize of equal or higher value. In no event will more than the number of stated prizes be awarded.  All federal, state, local, and other taxes, costs, and expenses related to the use, acceptance, and possession of a prize (including any tax imposed on a winner’s income) are the sole responsibility of the winner.  Prizes are awarded “as is,” and participants acknowledge that the Promotion Entities do not make any warranty, representation, express or implied, in fact or in law, related to the quality, condition, fitness, or merchantability of any aspect of the prizes being offered.  Sponsor is not responsible for any undelivered, misdelivered, or damaged prize, and no participant will receive any compensation for a prize that could not be awarded. If a prize is returned to Sponsor for any reason, the winner may be disqualified, and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, as determined by random drawing from the remaining non-winning eligible entries received by Sponsor during the applicable Entry Period.  Only one (1) alternate potential winner per prize may be selected through this process, after which the prize will remain unawarded.
  4. PUBLICITY NOTICE AND LIABILITY RELEASE: Except as prohibited by law, by submitting an entry into the Promotion, a participant grants to the Promotion Entities and each of their designees the unrestricted and perpetual right to use her/his name, address (city, state/district/province/territory), likeness, photograph, voice, and/or statements (collectively, the “Materials”), or any portion thereof, and the Promotion Entities and each of their designees may publish, display, broadcast, distribute, reproduce, perform, create derivative works from, and otherwise use and exploit the Materials, or any part thereof, whether alone or in combination with other materials (including, but not limited to, text, data, images, photographs, illustrations, graphics, video or audio segments of any nature), in any media, now or hereafter known, throughout the world, without additional compensation, notification, or permission.

    Except as prohibited by law, by participating in this Promotion, a participant releases, discharges, indemnifies, and holds harmless the Promotion Entities and their designees, and each of their respective officers, directors, managers, employees, representatives, and agents, from and against any claims, damages, or liability due to any injuries, damages, or losses to any person (including death) or property of any kind resulting, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from receipt, acceptance, possession, misuse, or use of a prize or participation in the Promotion or any Promotion/prize-related activity.
