The Contest winner will be selected by random drawing (the “Winner”) by Sponsor from all eligible Video entries received during the Entry Period.

Prizes may not be exchanged or redeemed for cash, sold, or traded. No prize transfer, assignment, or substitution by any Winner is permitted. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize, in which case a prize of equal or greater value will be awarded. Each Winner will be solely responsible for any and all local, state, and federal taxes (including income and withholding taxes) associated with the Prize and/or its use. Sponsor will report any individual winnings over $600 (in cash or fair market value of goods or services) in a one-year period to the Internal Revenue Service.

Proof of U.S. residency, age, and identity may be required to claim a Prize. Winners are subject to verification by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest.

In the event that a Winner is determined to be ineligible or fails to respond to Sponsor within ten (10) days of notification, the Prize will be forfeited and Sponsor reserves the right to randomly select an alternate winner from among the remaining eligible entries. Sponsor reserves the right to terminate the Contest without awarding the prizes if no eligible winners or alternate winners claim the prizes within the required time period. Acceptance of the Prize constitutes permission to the Sponsor to use Winner’s and Winner’s business’s name and/or likeness for advertising and promotional purposes without additional compensation, unless prohibited by law.
