“Invitation Entry”, and “Non-Purchase Entry” will be collectively referred to as “Entry” or “Entries” hereafter. All Entries must be received by 11:59 pm PT on October 29, 2023 to be eligible.  Limit: One (1) Entry per person/email address during the Sweepstakes Period, regardless of method of Entry. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than one Entry, by using multiple/different user names, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void such Entries and that Entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated or computer system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service may apply. If entering via mobile device or Ticketmaster app, normal phone/data and usage charges imposed by your phone service may apply. Incomplete, corrupted, or untimely Entries are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor and its Agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen or misdirected Entries; lost, interrupted, or unavailable network, server, or other connections; or miscommunications, computer or software malfunctions, telephone transmission problems, technical failures, garbled transmissions, damage to a user's computer equipment (software or hardware), or other errors or malfunctions of any kind, whether human, mechanical, electronic or otherwise. Proof of 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 associated with the Entry 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, 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.

 

4.     Random Drawing: On or about November 1, 2023, one (1) Random Drawing will be conducted to select two (2) potential Grand Prize winners from among all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Random Drawings will be conducted by the Administrator whose decisions are final and binding on all matters related to the Sweepstakes. The odds of winning a prize depends on the total number of eligible Entries received throughout during the Sweepstakes Period.

 

5.     Winner Notification: Potential winners will be contacted via email or email link, a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and, if legally permissible, a Publicity Release (“Declaration”) and will be required to digitally sign and electronically submit within twenty-four (24) hours of notification attempt. All winners must provide Administrator with a valid social security number and are subject to verification by Sponsor and/or Administrator; verification of potential winner is final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. If the Administrator is unable to reach the potential winner, the potential winner fails to reply to any notification within the timeframe specified, is ineligible, or does not wish to accept the prize, he/she/they will be disqualified, and an alternate will be selected. Released Parties shall have no liability for winner’s failure to receive notification due to spam, junk e-mail or other privacy/security settings or for winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning email address. Sponsor will make up to three (3) attempts to award each prize and, if after three (3) attempts any prizes remain unclaimed or any potential winner is not confirmed, such prize(s) may not be awarded in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Without limiting the foregoing, the Sponsor disclaims any and all liability for any Grand Prize which is returned as an undeliverable e-mail or otherwise not received by winner. All winners will be subject to eligibility verification.

In such event, Sponsor may (a) cancel the Sweepstakes entirely, (b) award the prizes from eligible Entries received prior to the Unforeseen Event resulting in the Sweepstakes Change if sufficient eligible Entries have been received (as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion), or (c) extend the Sweepstakes Period to allow time for more eligible Entries to be received. It is understood that an Unforeseen Event must take place for the Sweepstake Change to be effectuated by Sponsor and that such Sweepstakes Change is not simply at Sponsor’s option for any reason.
