Any attempt by any Participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries in a Weekly Sweepstakes by using same or multiple/different email accounts or any other method of entry will void all of that Participant's entries in the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes and that Participant will be disqualified. Entries that have been tampered with or altered shall be rendered void.

If for any reason any Weekly Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other cause beyond the control of the Sponsor which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of such Weekly Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right at their sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the online portion of the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes. Should a Weekly Sweepstakes be terminated or cancelled prior to the stated expiration date, notice will be posted on the Sweepstakes Site, and any entries received prior to the termination or cancellation will be included in the drawing of the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes.

5.                  DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION. Administrator will conduct random drawings on or about each of the Weekly Drawing Dates set forth in the chart above in order to select one (1) potential winner for each Weekly Sweepstakes (each a "Potential Winner", collectively the "Potential Winners"). Each Weekly Sweepstakes Potential Winner will be notified by email on or about seven (7) days following the corresponding Weekly Drawing Date and must respond to the notification within seven (7) days or be subject to disqualification and another Potential Winner will be selected from the remaining eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period, if time permits. Administrator will continue to select alternate Potential Winners in the manner set forth above until all Prizes (as defined below) have been awarded. If Sponsor and/or Administrator are unable to determine and verify a Potential Winner after ten (10) alternate drawings or if Administrator fails to receive sufficient number of entries for any given Weekly Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize for such Weekly Sweepstakes and end such Weekly Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period.

 

6.                   QUALIFICATION OF WINNER. Before a Potential Winner will be deemed an official winner (each a "Winner", collectively the "Winners"), he/she may be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release/Publicity Release (except where prohibited) (collectively referenced herein as the "Affidavit/Release") and any other legal documents that Sponsor and/or Administrator may require, including, but not limited to, a W-9 tax form, within three (3) days from the date Administrator sends such documents to a Potential Winner or be subject to disqualification. Each Potential Winner must be able to provide proof that such Potential Winner is eligible to be deemed a Winner to Sponsor's and Administrator's satisfaction. If the documents are not returned within that time, or Potential Winner or Winner is found to be ineligible, or does not comply with the Official Rules, then he/she will be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected in accordance with the process as set forth in Section 5 above. A prize notification being returned as undeliverable will result in disqualification of such entry.

 

7.                    PRIZES (13). Each Winner shall be awarded a Prize consisting of a "SpongeBob SquarePants" Limited Edition Summer Prize Pack composed one (1) of each of the following items: (i) SpongeBob Fiber Beach Towel, (ii) SpongeBob Water Bottle, (iii) SpongeBob Car Shade, (iv) Limited Edition SpongeBob Wink 16 quart Cooler, (v) SpongeBob Pineapple Lip Gloss, (vi) SpongeBob New Era Cap, (vii) SpongeBob Sunglasses, (viii) SpongeBob Biti Boomer Speakers, (ix) SpongeBob Plush, and (x) Fisher-Price® Imaginext® SpongeBob® Camp Coral Playset.

8.                      PRIZE RESTRICTIONS. Any difference between the ARV and the actual value of a Prize will not be awarded. An IRS Form 1099 may be issued in the name of Winner for the actual value of the Prize received. Any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes (including but not limited to income taxes) and all fees and expenses related to delivery, acceptance, and use of a Prize not specifically identified in these Official Rules, are solely the responsibility of the Winner. If for any reason a Prize or Prize component is unavailable for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute with a prize of equal or greater value. Any difference between the ARV and the actual value, if any, of any component of Prize will not be awarded. Winner may not transfer, give, barter, sell, substitute, or exchange the Prize for a cash equivalent except at Sponsor's sole discretion. In the event that a Potential Winner chooses not to accept his/her Prize, or is unable to be notified, an alternate Potential Winner will be randomly selected from all of the remaining eligible entries submitted during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period, if time permits and in accordance with the selection process as set forth in Section 5 above. NEITHER Sponsor NOR ADMINISTRATOR shall have ANY liability for any personal injuries, death, property damage, or other damages or expenses resulting from or arising out of any aspect of THE Winner's acceptance or use of the Prize.
