All Entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.


Qualified entries will be determined by Sponsor, in their sole discretion, by checking the Twitter @Reply function responses received in the Sponsor’s @Reply folder, for qualified and complete @Reply responses to Sponsor’s tweet message calling for entries. Winner will be selected from among all qualified entries received during the Sweepstakes Period, according to Sponsor’s time clock, in a random drawing on or about December 15, 2015 for Sweepstakes #1, December 16, 2015 for Sweepstakes #2, December 17, 2015 for Sweepstakes #3, December 18, 2015 for Sweepstakes #4, and December 19, 2015 for Sweepstakes #5 by Sponsor or its designee, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes (“Potential Winner” or “Potential Winners”).  Entrants need not be online during Potential Winner selection to win.  Each Potential Winner will be notified from Sponsor’s direct e-mail account on Twitter to the Potential Winner’s account of the winning entry (“Prize Notification”).

Once Sponsor receives a Potential Winner’s Mailing Information and if required by Sponsor, a completed and signed Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release, Sponsor shall declare that Potential Winner is a winner (“Winner”). If an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release, and/or parental release are not required by Sponsor, which shall be determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion, a Potential Winner will be named as a Winner upon Sponsor’s receipt of the Mailing Information via email by the Deadline.  Sponsor is not responsible for any failure of delivery of the Prize Notification through use of Twitter’s response functionality described in this Section 5.  Return of any Prize Notification or Prizes will result in disqualification, and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected in a random drawing from all remaining eligible entries received for the original drawing. Sponsor shall repeat the winner selection and notification procedures set forth in this Section 5 until a qualified Winner has been selected, if time permits.
