1. Entry Period: The Entry Period begins at 12:00:00 am Eastern Time (ET) and ends at 11:59:59 pm (ET) on the dates specified in the Official Rules. “Eastern Time” means the time that is the current local time in New York City on the dates identified in the Official Rules.

3. Prizes: The Prize(s) is/are described in the Official Rules for the Challenge. Each Winner is responsible for all expenses, costs or fees associated with acceptance and/or use of a Prize, included without limitation, any and all taxes. Prizes are not transferrable. There are no substitutions, except in Sponsor’s sole discretion. By accepting a Prize, each Winner grants its permission (except where prohibited by law) to the use of Winner’s name, likeness, biographical information, and Prize won for future advertising and publicity in any and all media now existing or hereafter devised throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification or permission.

If required by the Official Rules, before being declared the Winner, the Potential Winner may be required to respond to a prize notification email, and complete and return to Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility and Publicity Release within 7 days. Upon fulfillment of these requirements, if any, the Potential Winner will be declared a Winner. The Potential Winner will be notified via the email address associated with the account through which the Potential Winner accessed KIXEYE during the Entry Period. In the event that a prize notification email is returned or undeliverable, Sponsor is unable to contact a Potential Winner, or a Potential Winner does not comply with these requirements during the timeframes provided or is otherwise disqualified under these General Challenge Rules or the Official Rules, Sponsor may award the disqualified Potential Winner’s intended prize to a replacement Potential Winner in the manner set forth in the Official Rules.
4. Odds of Winning: Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period.
5. Disqualification; Sponsor’s Decision Final: Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any participant that it believes has violated these General Challenge Rules or the Official Rules of the Challenge, is not eligible to participate, who has provided false information, acted in a harassing or unsportsmanlike manner with respect to Sponsor or any other participant, or tampered with the operation of KIXEYE or the Challenge.
