Limit: You may receive one (1) entry per Prize Tier per day, regardless of the method of entry. Posts or comments may not be irrelevant, unintelligible, indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, or libelous or contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, or disparage Sponsor or Administrator or any other person or party affiliated with the Sweepstakes, or contain material that is unlawful in any way. Sponsor reserves the right to remove and/or disqualify any entries that it finds unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, all in their sole discretion. Submitting a post constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor, its designees, successors, assigns and licensees a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, entrant will sign any documentation required for Sponsor or its designees successors, assigns and licensees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the tweet or post. Released Parties (as defined in Section 7, below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, incomplete, inaccurate, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected tweets or posts, all of which will be void. 

 

Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Instagram Account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different accounts, email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register or associated with the account used to enter 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. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.  

5. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential winners from all eligible entries received during each Prize Tier, on or around the dates listed in the chart in Section 3. Entries from one Prize Tier will not carry-over into any other Prize Tier. Potential winners will be notified by @HP via Instagram and will be provided with further instructions to claim his/her prize. Each potential winner of a prize with an Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) over $599 USD (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in her/her place of residence) will be required to complete, sign, and submit a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity release ("Declaration") within twenty four (24) hours of the date/time notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a Canadian resident, the potential winner will be required to correctly answer a time-limited skill-testing question without any assistance in order to be eligible to receive a prize. If the potential winner is a Canadian resident and the question is answered incorrectly, the prize will be forfeited. If the potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted or fails to submit the Declaration within the required time period, potential winner forfeits the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only up to three (3) alternate drawings will be held (time permitting), after which the prize will remain un-awarded. National Prize Tier Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
