Once submitted, entries cannot be deleted, cancelled or modified. Limit one (1) entry per person.
Without limitation, entrant will be disqualified if Sponsor considers for any reason the entrant/entry, or any element thereof, not to be in the spirit of the Sweepstakes, ineligible or otherwise not compliant herewith, or will have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, Tai Lopez, this Sweepstakes, any of Tai Lopez' brands, products or services. Entries that are in violation of these Rules will be disqualified. Without limitation, any entry deemed by Sponsor, in its absolute discretion to appear to be or contain content that is or may be indecent, obscene, offensive, hateful, tortious, cruel, defamatory, or libelous or contain material that violates or infringes another's intellectual property or other rights, or disparages Sponsor, or any other person or party whether or not affiliated with the Sweepstakes, or contains or seemingly promotes activities that are unseemly, illegal, unlawful, unsafe or dangerous in any way will be disqualified. Without limitation, if an entry in whole or in part, for any reason whatsoever, garners comments that are unpleasant, distasteful, nasty or appears otherwise inappropriate for the Sponsor community, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify entry/Entrant and remove any such entry immediately from the Sweepstakes. Further, Sponsor reserves the right to remove any entry that it finds in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion.
Entries may only be submitted by a single registered social media account user; group or commercial submissions are not permissible. Entrants may not enter through a sweepstakes club, exchange site (or similar method), with multiple accounts, multiple or false identities, IP addresses, e-mail and/or phone numbers, nor shall entrants use any other device or artifice to enter or participate. Any suspected use of artifice, cheating, fraud, on-line clubs (or similar methods), exchange sites, robotic, automatic, macro, script, programmed or like methods as determined in Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion, will void all such entries by such methods, and disqualify any entrant suspected of using/benefitting from such methods. Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor has the right to verify entrants' eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and, on the basis of its investigation, to disqualify any entrant at any time during or after the Sweepstakes Period and require immediate prize return if applicable. Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility for ineligible, noncompliant, lost, late, incomplete, inaccurate, delayed, destroyed, damaged, or misdirected entries (in whole or in part).
Entries must be complete, compliant, submitted via the social media platform communicated, and received by Sponsor within the Sweepstakes Period. Entries submitted via any other entry method or channel will not be accepted. Normal internet access and device usage charges imposed by your mobile plan and/or on-line service may apply to entry via mobile device. For those entrants entering with a mobile device: Promotion may not be available via all mobile carriers. Messaging & data rates apply to internet access via mobile devices. Other charges may apply; check your mobile plan for rates/details.
WINNER SELECTION/NOTIFICATION, ODDS & PRIZES: Sponsor will randomly select potential Grand Prize winners throughout the Sweepstakes Period who will be notified via Instagram DM and then confirmed through email throughout the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor reserves the right to award more than one prize on any particular day, or not to award any prizes on any particular days. However, it is anticipated that all prizes will be awarded assuming sufficient eligible entries are received. Random drawings will be conducted from among all eligible entries received up to that juncture. Odds of winning a prize depend on the time of Sponsor's drawing and number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period to date. Limit one (1) prize per person/household address, during the entire Promotion Period.
Potential Grand Prize winners will be required to provide Additional Documents (as provided hereinafter) and may be required to complete, sign, and return a Declaration of Eligibility, Liability and, where lawful, Publicity Release within the time specified by Sponsor, or else prize will be forfeited and an alternate potential winner may be randomly selected from remaining eligible entrants.
GRAND PRIZES (25) (1 per winner): One (1) month's rent payment, up to a maximum of $1,500. Approx. retail value of each prize: up to a max. total amount of $1,500. Approx. retail value of all prizes: up to a max. total amount of $37,500. To be eligible for and as a condition precedent to each prize award, each potential winner must provide (written) proof that: (i) they are 18 years of age or older (or have reached the legal age of majority in their state of legal residence if applicable), (ii) they physically reside in the U.S. and it is their primary residence, and (iii) they have a valid rental agreement for such primary residence in the U.S. AND are personally, individually responsible on a repeated basis to pay in U.S. dollars weekly/monthly rent for such residence to an individual/entity unrelated to them ("Additional Documents"). In addition, each potential winner agrees to provide Sponsor a short thank-you video sent via Instagram or Snapchat, and a valid PayPal account (for payment of prize), or else prize may be forfeited. As part of the prize award process Sponsor reserves the right (but without obligation) to request different or additional documents or forms of documents if potential Grand Prize winner is unable to provide the requested documents in Sponsor's sole discretion.
Any difference between stated prize amount and actual rental amount (whether greater or less) will not be awarded, as cash or otherwise. In other words, by way of example: if potential winner's personal monthly rental responsibility is $1,000 per month, this will be the amount of their prize and the remaining $500 will not be awarded; if they pay a weekly rent of $375, they will receive $1,500 ($375 x4); if they pay a monthly rent of $2,000, they will receive $1,500 total. Rental payment amounts must be personal to a winner, and may not be combined or substituted with any other person/obligation. All decisions concerning the prize are in Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion and final determination.
All U.S. federal, state and local taxes are the sole responsibility of each prize recipient, who will be issued an IRS Form 1099. Prize is awarded AS IS WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Prizes cannot be assigned, transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted, except by Sponsor who may, at its sole discretion, substitute a prize with a prize of equal or greater value for any reason. Limit one (1) prize per person/household address. Only the number and description of prize(s) stated in these Official Rules is available to be won in the Sweepstakes; in no event will Sweepstakes Entities be responsible for awarding more than the stated number or description of prize(s). PRIZES, AND ANY ELEMENT THEREOF, INCLUDING ANY PRODUCTS RECEIVED AS A PRIZE, MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED, ASSIGNED, SOLD, RESOLD, AUCTIONED, BARTERED, OR PLACED INTO ANY OTHER UNAUTHORIZED CHANNELS OF DISTRIBUTION.
