IDENTIFICATION OF ENTRANTS:
Each entry submitted will be automatically randomly assigned an eight (8) digit Encrypted Entry Number between 00000001 – 75000000 (“EEN”).

HOW TO WIN:
Within minutes of assigning an EEN to a contestant, such EEN will be automatically compared to the eight (8) digit winning number for the Grand Prize that was randomly selected prior to the commencement of the Promotion Period by SCA, an independent third party, to determine if the EEN matches the winning number. The Grand Prize winner, if any, will be notified immediately on the Website, and via e-mail within thirty (30) days of the end of the Promotion Period (contestants should ensure that their Registration Data is accurate and up to date). The Grand Prize winner will be subject to eligibility verification.

The Grand Prize winner will be required to provide picture proof of identification, which may include a driver’s license, passport, voting card or similar government issued identification. Return of any prize/prize notification as undeliverable may result in forfeiture. In no case shall Company be liable in any manner where a Grand Prize winner has not received notification sent from Company or where Company fails to receive a response from the Grand Prize winner within the required response period. The winning EEN and associated entry must identically match the records maintained by SCA and Company in order for a Grand Prize to be awarded. In the event of a dispute, the information maintained by SCA and Company will govern. Entries will be deemed made by the person under whose name the entry was registered, regardless of who actually submitted the entry. Be sure to use your correct name and your own e-mail address.

SCA PROMOTIONS, INC.:
SCA is not involved in marketing the Promotion. SCA is not the sponsor of the Promotion and will not respond to any inquiries. SCA is responsible for the selection of the eight (8) digit winning number for the Grand Prize.
Company, SCA, each of their legal representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, agencies and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents, are not responsible for lost, interrupted or unavailable network server or other connections, miscommunications, failed telephone or computer transmissions or technical failure, lost online entries, jumbled, scrambled or misdirected transmissions, or other error of any kind, whether human, mechanical or electronic. By entering the Promotion, each contestant agrees to release and hold harmless Company, SCA, each of their legal representatives, affiliates, subsidiaries, parents, agencies and their respective members, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from, or in connection with, the Promotion including, but not limited to, liability arising from copyright infringement, improper use of likeness, personal injury, death, damages or monetary loss.

CHOICE OF LAW:
Any disputes arising out of or related to the Promotion shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). Should a dispute arise concerning the Promotion, the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before the American Arbitration Association in New York, New York, in accordance with the then current Commercial Arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association. Should a dispute arise concerning the Promotion, the terms and conditions of these Rules or the breach of same by any party hereto, you may commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice to us which can be found Here. We may choose to provide you with a final written settlement offer after receiving your Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”). If we provide you with a Final Settlement Offer and you do not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve your dispute, you can submit your dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties, in your county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is available Here. For claims of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or less, you can choose whether the arbitration proceeds in person, by telephone or based only on submissions. If the arbitrator awards you relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if you retained an attorney to represent you in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys’ fees that your attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any party from: (a) seeking injunctive relief in order to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration; and/or (b) pursuing the matter in small claims court rather than arbitration. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from you unless the arbitrator determines that your claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, you agree that you will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that you may have against Company and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. You agree to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove you as a participant in the suit. You agree to pay the attorney’s fees and court costs that Company incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing you from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (i) does not constitute a waiver of any of your rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (ii) is an independent agreement. You may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of your decision within thirty (30) days of the date that you submit your first entry into the Promotion, using the contact information provided on the Website.
