All Entries become the property of Sponsors and will not be acknowledged. Entries must be received before 11:59 P.M. ET on April 8, 2012 to be eligible for the Sweepstakes.

Entries that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant who made a potentially winning Entry, Sponsors reserve the right to deem that the Entry was made by the registered subscriber of the cellular phone number used to make a Text Entry or the email address submitted at the time of Online Entry. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant's name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity without additional compensation.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: One (1) potential winner (“Winner”) will be selected in a random drawing by employees of Sponsors from all eligible Entries on or about April 9, 2012. Sponsors will make two (2) attempts to notify potential Winners at the phone numbers and/or email addresses submitted at the time of Entry. Potential Winners may be required to return completed, signed, and notarized affidavits of eligibility, releases of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity releases (collectively, “Sweepstakes Documents”) within two (2) days of such notification. Noncompliance within this time period will result in disqualification, and an alternate Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries. If a potential Winner cannot be reached, if he/she is found to ineligible, if he/she cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if his/her prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential Winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries.

In the event of cancellation, modification, or suspension, Sponsors reserve the right to select Winners in a random drawing from among all eligible, non-suspect Entries received at the time of the event warranting such cancellation, modification, or suspension. Notice of such cancellation, modification, or suspension will be posted on the Website.
