Entries that are received before and/or after the Sweepstakes Period will be void. The Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes.
Nonreadable, garbled or incomplete Entries, or Entrants that do not abide by these Official Rules, as determined by the Sponsor or Administering Agency at their sole discretion, will be disqualified. All Entries become property of the Sponsor and will not be returned or acknowledged. Entries that are submitted by a third-party entity on behalf of an Entrant, including, but not limited to, a Sweepstakes agent or agency, or Entries (as determined at the sole discretion of the Sponsor and/or Administering Agency) that are forged, altered or are generated by a macro, bot or other automated means will not be accepted and will be void. Submission of false or misleading information by an Entrant will be grounds for disqualification of Entry. For purposes of this Sweepstakes, an Entry is “received” when the Sponsor’s server records the receipt of the Entry in any form allowed by the Sponsor. Proof of sending (such as an automated computer receipt confirming Entry or “thanks for entering” message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of an Entry for purposes of this Sweepstakes. All Entries must be submitted legitimately.
In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of an Entrant who enters the Sweepstakes, the Entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email address provided, but only if that person meets all other eligibility criteria. An “authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain name associated with the submitted email address. A potential Prizewinner may be requested to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the potentially winning Entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the Entry will be deemed ineligible regardless of method of entry.
WINNER SELECTION AND ODDS:
On or about March 5, 2020, one (1) potential Prizewinner will be selected in a random drawing by the Administering Agency from all eligible Entries received as allowed by the Sponsor.

The Sponsor may require the potential Prizewinner to execute additional post-Sweepstakes documents or other documentation as required by Sponsor.
