Boxes are not permitted.  Upon submission of your complete registration information, you automatically will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Daily Entry Period.  Limit: You may enter one (1) time per Daily Entry Period during the Promotion Period.  Entries from one Daily Entry Period will not carry-over to subsequent Daily Entry Period drawings. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different 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 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.  After each Daily Entry Period, Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received in that Daily Entry Period. The potential winners will be notified by email on or around March 18, 2013. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits his/her 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 the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
