Failure to provide true and accurate information will automatically disqualify you from participating in the drawing. Entering more than once during the Sweepstakes Period is prohibited and does not increase your chances of winning. Entries become the sole property of Zappos IP, Inc. (“Sponsor”) and will not be acknowledged or returned. Information collected from entrant from the comments provided to enter may be used by Sponsor to notify you if you are a winner. Failure to comply with these instructions, fill in all of the required fields, or abide by these “Official Sweepstakes Rules” will result in disqualification. Limit one (1) entry per person regardless of method of entry. If more than one (1) entry is submitted, Sponsor will only consider the first entry submitted. Entry into the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, or misdirected entries, for technical, hardware or software failures of any kind, for lost or unavailable network connections, or for failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions or any human error which may occur in the receipt or processing of the entries. Proof of entering information at Website does not constitute proof of delivery or receipt. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the scheduling of the Sweepstakes without prior notification. Use of computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic, automatic and other similar means to enter the Sweepstakes is prohibited and may result in the disqualification of the entrant. 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 person in whose name the Facebook account is registered on the date the entry is submitted. All entries become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. The Website’s database clock will be the official time keeper for this Sweepstakes. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.
THE DRAWING. The potential winner will be selected at a commercially reasonable time after the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing from all eligible entries received by Sponsor, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. Entrants need not be present to win. Sponsor will notify the winner at a time that is commercially reasonable thereafter. The potential winner will be notified using the contact information provided at the time of entry. Entrants’ odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. If a dispute arises over entitlement to the Prize (as defined below), the winner is the person to whom the Facebook account was assigned by the appropriate agency, internet service provider, business, or organization. Winner may be required to provide a valid, government-issued form of identification that matches the name under which the winner entered. If Prize, Prize notification or Sweepstakes-related communication is lost, rejected, faulty, or returned as undeliverable or if a winner cannot be reached after a reasonable attempt has been made by Sponsor (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), that winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Sweepstakes Rules or declines the Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected. If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward seeking to claim the Prize in excess of the number of each type of Prize set forth in these Official Sweepstakes Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised Prize may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for the Prize. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
