Each Entrant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties from any and all lawsuit, damages, claims, losses, liabilities, or expenses (including court costs and attorneys’ fees) arising out of the Released Parties’ use of that Entrant’s Entry.

If it is discovered by the Contest Sponsor (using any evidence or other information made available to, or otherwise discovered by, the Contest Sponsor) that any Entrant has attempted to use (or attempt to use) multiple names, identities, email addresses and/or any automated, macro, script, robotic or other system(s) or program(s) to enter or otherwise participate in or disrupt this Contest, that person may be disqualified from the Contest, and any future contests of the Contest Sponsor, in the sole discretion of the Contest Sponsor.

All Entries will be declared invalid if they are late, illegible, incomplete, damaged, irregular, forged, garbled or mechanically or electronically reproduced.

The Contest Sponsor reserves the right, in their sole discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility (in a form acceptable to the Contest Sponsor – including, without limitation, government issued photo identification): (i) for the purposes of verifying an Entrant’s eligibility to participate in this Contest; (ii) for the purposes of verifying the eligibility and/or legitimacy of an Entry entered (or purportedly entered) for the purposes of this Contest; and/or (iii) for any other reason the Contest Sponsor deems necessary, in their sole discretion, for the purposes of administering this Contest in accordance with these Official Rules. Failure to provide such proof to the satisfaction of the Contest Sponsor in a timely manner may result in disqualification of the Entrant in the sole discretion of the Contest Sponsor.

Each potential winner of a Prize (a “Selected Entrant”) may also be requested to provide the Contest Sponsor with reasonable proof that he/she is the Authorized Account Holder of the Instagram account associated with the winning Entry. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting an Entry, the Entry will be deemed to be submitted by the Authorized Account Holder in whose name the Instagram account is registered, provided that person meets all eligibility criteria of this Contest. “Authorized Account Holder” shall mean the natural person assigned to an email address and/or telephone number by an Internet access provider, online service provider, telephone service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.

The winner of the Prize (“Prize Winners”) is not entitled to any difference between the actual value of a Prize and the approximate retail value of that Prize as stated herein.

Prize Winners must follow all directions of the Contest Sponsor with respect to the Prize or any aspect thereof. Failure to do so may result in termination of participation, or continued participation, in the Prize or any aspect thereof. Prize Winners acknowledge and accept all risk of damages, injury or other loss incidental to any Prize and hereby voluntarily agrees to assume the same. Each Prize must be accepted as awarded, without substitution, and is not transferrable, refundable, for resale or convertible to cash. The Contest Sponsor reserves the right, in the event that the Prize, or any component of the Prize, cannot be awarded as described for any reason, to substitute the same for another prize or component of equal or greater value, without notice or liability. In the event that a substitute prize is awarded, such prize must be accepted as awarded and cannot be exchanged for cash or otherwise. The odds of winning a Prize will depend on the number of eligible Entries received during the Contest Period.


The Prize Winners will be determined by counting which hashtag was used the most during the Contest Period. The Prize Winners will be contacted by the Contest Sponsor via Email. If a Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond to the Contest Sponsor’s direct message within forty-eight (48) hours of the first point of contact (or attempt) by the Contest Sponsor, he/she will be considered to have forfeited his/her respective Prize and will be disqualified. The Contest Sponsor will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact any Selected Entrant. No telephone contact, Direct Messaging or other correspondence in association with the Contest will be entered into except with each Selected Entrant.


Upon successful contact with a Selected Entrant, that Selected Entrant will be required to provide certain contact information, as requested by the Contest Sponsor (e.g., full name, age, telephone number, email address). If a Selected Entrant does not meet all of the Contest requirements or refuses to provide the contact information requested by the Contest Sponsor, that Selected Entrant will forfeit his/her Prize. The Contest Sponsor are not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact any Selected Entrant.
