The Promotion Entities are not responsible for misdirected, incomplete, lost, late, illegible, undelivered, inaccurate or delayed entries, or for technical, hardware, or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions or other errors or problems which may limit or affect a person’s ability to participate in the Promotion, whether human, mechanical, typographical, printing, electronic, network or otherwise, relating to or in connection with the Promotion, including, without limitation, errors which may occur in connection with the administration of the Promotion, the processing of entries, the announcement of the prizes or in any Promotion-related materials. Promotion Entities are not responsible for any changes to or unavailability of the social media platform service that may interfere with the Promotion (including any limitations, restrictions, or conditions on Sponsor’s ability to use one or more Platforms for the Promotion as set forth herein) or the ability of an entrant to timely enter, receive notices or communicate with Sponsor via a Platform. In the event of sabotage, acts of God, pandemic or other public health emergency, government-mandated shutdowns or lockdowns, terrorism or threats thereof, computer virus or other events or causes beyond the Sponsor’s control, which corrupt the integrity, administration, security or proper operation of the Promotion, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify entrants and/or modify, cancel or suspend the Promotion. In the event of cancellation, Sponsor reserves the right (but is not obligated) to award prizes from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to the event requiring such cancellation. False or deceptive entries or acts will render the entrant ineligible.

HOW TO WIN: Two (2) winners (“Winner“) will be randomly selected by Sponsor on or around November 1, 2021 from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.

Potential winners must follow the instructions provided as part of the notification, which may include providing an email address, telephone number, username, and/or other means of verification.

If a potential winner (i) cannot be reached directly, (ii) does not respond to Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of the first notification attempt, (iii) is found ineligible, (iv) declines the prize, or (iv) fails to comply with these Official Rules, such person may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be notified, or such prize may go unawarded, in the sole discretion of Sponsor. In the event of a dispute, an entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the account that submitted the winning entry. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of an entrant cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the entry at issue will be deemed ineligible.
