WINNING/NOTIFICATION: On or about November 9, 2022, three (3) Grand Prize Winners will be selected from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. The random drawing will be conducted by the Sponsor whose decisions are based upon their sole discretion and interpretation of these Official Rules and are final and binding in all respects. Odds of winning are dependent upon the total number of entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. The potential Grand Prize Winner will be notified by the Sponsor via direct message to his/her TikTok account within one (1) to three (3) business days from the date in which the random drawing takes place. Grand Prize Winner will be required to supply his/her email address to complete the prize claims and verification process as further described in the “PRIZE CLAIMS” section below. Sponsor will only make two (2) attempts to reach the potential Grand Prize Winners via direct message, within a seventy-two (72) hour time-period. In the event the Sponsor cannot reach a potential Grand Prize Winner after two (2) attempts have been made, the original potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Grand Prize Winner (selected randomly as outlined above) will be notified until three (3) Grand Prize Winners are confirmed.
PRIZE CLAIMS: Except where prohibited, each potential Grand Prize Winner will be required to complete, execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (the “Release”) and an IRS Form W-9 (“W-9 Form”) and any other documents required by Sponsor (collectively, the “Required Documents”) within seven (7) days or less from receipt of Notification from the Independent Administrator by email. If a potential Grand Prize Winner fails to return the Required Documents within the time period required, or if the email is returned as undeliverable, such potential Grand Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Grand Prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the “WINNING/NOTIFICATION” section above, even if the disqualified potential Grand Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced. Each potential Grand Prize Winner must report income to the IRS. In the event it is deemed during the verification process that a potential Grand Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the Grand Prize, such potential Grand Prize Winner will be disqualified and an Alternate will be notified as outlined above. Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements. If it is determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, that a potential Grand Prize Winner is not eligible or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, the potential Grand Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Grand Prize and an alternate will be notified as outlined in the “WINNING/NOTIFICATION” section above, even if the disqualified potential Grand Prize Winner’s name may have been publicly announced. In the event that the potential Grand Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor/Independent Administrator shall have no liability or obligation to such individual.
