By submitting your post, you will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes for the applicable Entry Period. Posts may not be indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, or libelous or contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, or disparage Sponsor, 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 any posts that it finds unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion.

5. Drawings: The designated overseer of each Hosting Website (“Host”), determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, is each an independent judging entity 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.  Each Host will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winner for each Entry Period from all eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period, on or around March 28, 2011. The applicable Host will be contacting the potential winners by email in order to collect name, address and email. The potential winner will have five (5) days to respond to the Host’s request, after which an alternate winner will be chosen.  If a potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to respond to the Host’s request for information, 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 three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.  Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after all winners are confirmed.
