If entering via a mobile device and using your wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your wireless carrier may apply.  Your account settings on the Social Account you use to enter must be set to "unprotected" and/or "public" in order for your Tweets or posts to be viewable by Sponsor. 

 

During the Promotion Period, take either of the following actions to receive an entry:

 

Twitter:  Tweet about how you are embracing Spring Queening and include the hashtags #YasClean and #Sweepstakes in the Tweet. Retweets or Quote Tweets will not be deemed entries.

 

Instagram: Post a photo showing how you are embracing Spring Queening and include the hashtags #YasClean and #Sweepstakes in the caption of the Instagram post. Instagram stories and Instagram posts where the hashtag is included in a comment rather than the caption of the original post will not be deemed entries. 

Content Restrictions:  Your Tweet or post and its included content will hereafter be referred to as your “Submission.”  Your Submission must be your original work.  If you include the names or likenesses of other individuals, you must have their permission to be included and to grant the rights set forth in Section 5. If requested, entrant must be able to provide such permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor. 

 

Your Submission may not be inappropriate, offensive, indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, discriminatory, libelous, contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, disparage Sponsor, Administrator, or any other person or party, or contain material that is unlawful in any way. Your Submission must not promote alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearm/weapons or any political agenda. Your Submission must not contain material that promotes bigotry, racism, hatred or harm against any group or individual.  The Submission must not prominently feature brand names or trademarks other than those owned by Sponsor, which entrant has a limited license to use to incorporate in his/her Submission. Your Submission need not include any reference, positive or negative, to Sponsor’s products or services.

Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Submission that it finds is not in keeping with Sponsor’s image, is unlawful, or is in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion.

You will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes for your qualified Submission. 

Limit: You may enter the Sweepstakes two (2) times during the Promotion Period, one (1) entry via the Website and one (1) entry via a Social Account.  Entrants may only use one (1) Social Account and one (1) email address to enter this Sweepstakes. Entrants are not permitted to share the same Social Account or email address. Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, Social Accounts, 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 or Social Account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant and such entrant must comply with these Official Rules. 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 used to create the Social Account or for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. Released Parties (as defined in Section 8, below) are not responsible for lost, late, unreceived, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions or failure to receive Submissions due to limitation of third-party social network platforms all of which will be void. 

5. Sponsor’s Use of Submissions: Tweeting/Posting a Submission constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor and its successors, licensees and assigns a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such Submissions in whole or in part, along with entrant’s name, user name, city and state of residence, photo (including, without limitation, profile photo) and comments, 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 that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission.

6. Drawing: 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 Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries during the Promotion Period on or about May 18, 2020.  Potential winners will be contacted by email, comment on winning entry, @reply or direct message, depending on method of entry. Potential winners must respond to the initial notification with the required contact information within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim the prize. In addition, the potential Grand Prize winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and, where not prohibited, a Publicity Release ("Declaration") which must be received by Administrator, within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information within the required time period, or the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential Grand Prize or First Prize 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 applicable prize will remain un-awarded.  Unclaimed Second Prizes will not be awarded.  Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 10-12 weeks after the conclusion of winner confirmation.
