In so doing, you will receive one (1) entry (“Entry”) into the Sweepstakes. Limit of one Entry per Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account user regardless of the number of Posts during the Entry Period.
By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant grants Sponsor and its designees (including Guaranteed Rate, Inc.) a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable right to reproduce, copy, publish, display, distribute, perform, translate, adapt, modify, feature and otherwise use the entrant’s Post and Entry, without restriction and without compensation, notification, or additional consent from entrant or any third party. Entrant warrants that he/she has the sole and exclusive right to grant such rights to Sponsor, and that the Sponsor’s reproduction, publishing, displaying, and/or other use of the Post will not infringe on any rights of third parties, including, but not limited to, copyright, trademark, privacy, or publicity rights, or create claims for breach of contract, anywhere in the world. Entrant agrees that Sponsor shall have no obligation to copy, publish, display, or otherwise exploit the Post.
By participating in this Sweepstakes, entrant acknowledges and agrees that he/she will clearly and conspicuously disclose that he/she is participating in this Sweepstakes in any online social sharing interaction that references the Sweepstakes or is used to obtain Entry in the Sweepstakes. At a minimum, the hashtag described in the relevant posts that identifies the Post as associated with the Sweepstakes entry should be included in all social media communications sent pursuant to the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entrant who does not adequately disclose his or her participation in this Sweepstakes while engaging in any online social sharing interaction during the Entry Period.
Entries that do not include any required disclosures or hashtag or that are not received by Sponsor for any reason will not be eligible and will be disqualified. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Twitter or Instagram or Facebook account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple and/or different identities, accounts, registrations, email addresses, logins, or any other methods will void the applicable Entries, and that entrant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the pertinent Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder to the Sponsor or forfeit the prize. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All potential winners are subject to verification before any prize will be awarded.
