Sponsor and Sponsor´s agents, affiliates, marketing partners, subsidiaries, representatives, and service providers may use entrants´ personal information submitted with entry for purposes of prize fulfillment and/or for future marketing by Sponsor or any of its affiliates and marketing partners, such as to notify them of a product or promotion that Sponsor thinks may be of interest.

By providing your mobile phone number, you acknowledge and expressly authorize and approve that Sponsor may make available a service either directly or through third parties by which you can receive messages about products and services that may be of interest to you on your wireless device via short message service (“SMS Service“). Your provider´s standard data and messaging rates apply to all SMS correspondence. All charges are billed by and payable to your mobile service provider. You represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state (including D.C.) of permanent residence and the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges. Program subscribers may opt out of the SMS Service by replying with the keyword "STOP", "END", or "QUIT" to the SMS text message received. This process impacts only the future delivery of Sponsor´s SMS message offering and will not unsubscribe you from other SMS programs to which you may have subscribed. Program subscribers may receive assistance for the SMS Service by replying with the keyword "HELP" to the message received. Data obtained from you in connection with this SMS Service may include your name, address, cell phone number, your provider´s name, and the date, time, and content of your messages. The use of this information will be in accordance with the OFFICIAL RULE contained herein and also found in our Privacy Policy . If fees are charged to your wireless account invoice, Sponsor may provide your carrier with your applicable information in connection therewith. Your wireless carrier and other service providers may also collect data about your wireless device usage, and their practices are governed by their own policies. Planet49 North America Corp has no responsibility and bears no liability to reimburse you for fees charged to your mobile phone in connection with your participation in the Promotion. You acknowledge and agree that the SMS Service is provided via wireless systems which use radios (and other means) to transmit communications over complex networks. Sponsor will not be liable for any delays in the receipt of any SMS messages, as delivery is subject to effective transmission from your network operator. The SMS Services are provided on an AS IS basis. Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, lost, late, damaged, illegible or misdirected mobile messages or for any technical problems, malfunctions of any telephone lines, computer systems, servers, providers, hardware/software, lost or unavailable network connections or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmission or any combination thereof. Sponsor is not responsible for any liability for damage to any computer system resulting from participation in or accessing or downloading information in connection with this program. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for undeliverable mobile messages resulting from any form of active or passive mobile filtering by a user´s mobile provider or for insufficient space in user´s mobile phone account to messages. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend this program should a virus, bugs, or other causes beyond the control of the Sponsor corrupt the administration, security or proper operation of the program. Sponsor does not guarantee that your use of the SMS Service will be private or secure, and Sponsor is not liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience. You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the SMS Service.

Entry must be submitted by the participant. Use of automated entries or programs or entries submitted by third parties is prohibited and will be disqualified. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the permitted number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, addresses or any other method will void all of that participant´s entries and that participant may be disqualified at Sponsor´s discretion. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. All entries become the property of Sponsor when submitted and will not be returned to entrant. Normal Internet, phone and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. Incomplete, illegible, corrupted, or untimely entries are void and will be disqualified. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant or participant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider, or other organization (which may include an employer) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win.

WINNER SELECTION & VERIFICATION: On or about January 20, 2015, Sponsor will select one (1) potential winner in a random drawing from all eligible entries received. Potential winner will be notified via telephone, email, or mail within seven (7) days of being selected. If a potential winner does not respond within seven (7) days after the first attempt to contact him/her, or the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, that potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize, and Sponsor will award prize to an alternate potential winner selected randomly from all remaining eligible entries. Alternate potential winner must satisfy all eligibility requirements. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

Except where prohibited, each potential winner will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the "Affidavit/Release") within seven (7) days of being notified. If the potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, is unavailable to accept the prize within the time period specified by Sponsor, or fails to abide by these Official Rules, the potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected at random in his/her place within seven days of the date the potential winner is determined to be ineligible. Up to three (3) alternate winners will be selected, after which any remaining prizes will remain un-awarded.

AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT´S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.

PRIZE: Upon entering, each entrant must select one (1) of the three (3) available prizes listed on the website which he/she is entering the Promotion to win. The winner will receive both of the prizes that he/she selected upon entering the Promotion.

Any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes are the sole responsibility of the individual prize winner. Winner will be issued an IRS Form 1099 for the appropriate retail value of prize in the event the winner chose a prize valued at over $600, as his/her prize. Prize cannot be substituted, assigned, transferred, or redeemed for cash; however, Sponsor reserves the right to make equivalent prize substitutions at its sole discretion. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes.

GENERAL CONDITIONS: WARNING: ANY ATTEMPT BY A ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEB SITE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PROMOTION OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROMOTION MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAW, AND, SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE AND SEEK DAMAGES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

If for any reason an entrant´s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant´s sole remedy is another entry in the Promotion, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the Promotion, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. If, for any reason, the Promotion is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus or bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Sponsor, which corrupt or affect the operation, administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Promotion, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, void any suspect entries and (a) modify the Promotion or suspend the Promotion to address the impairment and then resume the Promotion in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than the stated number of potential winners, if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified entries.
