    7. PRIZE

    The winner in each Quarterly Entry Period will receive a Golden Skein and Eiffel Tower Scissor valued at $115.00, which will be selected and fulfilled by DMC. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. There is one (1) prize awarded to one (1) winner per Quarterly Entry Period.


    The winner of the Prize is required to comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules, and regulations and is solely responsible for all taxes that apply. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of greater or equal value if the Prize or a portion of the Prize is unavailable. The prize may not be returned. Prizes are non-assignable and non-transferable. No cash alternative or other substitution of the Prize is permitted, except at the sole option of Sponsor. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen Prize. Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by Sponsor.


    The potential winner will be notified by email within five business days of selection and, except where prohibited by law, will be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and publicity/liability release, within seven (7) days of notification and provide any additional information that may be required by Sponsor. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim a prize and/or an affidavit of eligibility and publicity/liability release (where applicable) is not timely received, is incomplete, or modified, the Prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected from remaining eligible entries. Only two (2) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding. Prizes will be fulfilled within approximately 4-6 weeks after the conclusion of the Quarterly Entry Period. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.


    Sponsor and its affiliates and subsidiaries and their respective directors, officers, employees, members and agents, including advertising and promotion agencies, assigns, and any other organizations related to the Sweepstakes (together, the “Released Parties”) are not responsible for (i) late, lost, delayed, damaged, postage-due, incomplete, illegible, misdirected or undeliverable entries, responses, or other correspondence, whether by email or postal mail or otherwise, (ii) theft, destruction, unauthorized access to or alterations of entry materials, or (iii) phone, electrical, network, computer, hardware, software program or transmission malfunctions, failures or difficulties. By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to waive, release, indemnify, defend and hold harmless each of the Released Parties, Facebook, Inc. and Instagram, Inc. from and against, any claims, injuries (including death), loss, expenses or damages and/or liabilities of any nature that in any way arise in whole or in part from the acceptance, possession, use or enjoyment of a prize or parts thereof, participation in the Sweepstakes, or in any prize-related activity, including, without limitation, any condition caused by events beyond Sponsor’s control that may cause the Sweepstakes to be disrupted or corrupted, injuries, losses, or damages (compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of a prize, or acceptance, possession, or use of a prize, or from participation in the Sweepstakes, printing or typographical errors in any materials associated with the Sweepstakes, or electronic, network or computer failures or malfunctions, or other hardware, software or technical errors of any kind, including any injury or damage to any person’s computer related to, or resulting from, participation in the Sweepstakes or for other errors or difficulties of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic, computer, network, typographical, printing or otherwise relating to or in connection with the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, errors or difficulties which may occur in connection with the administration of the Sweepstakes.


    In no event will sponsor or any such other person be liable to entrants for any direct, special, incidental, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages (including loss of use, data, business or profits) arising out of or in connection with entrants’ participation in the sweepstakes, whether such liability arises from any claim based upon contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, and whether or not sponsor or any such other person has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damage. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.


    Except where prohibited, by accepting any prize, each winner consents to the use of his/her name, photo and/or likeness, biographical information, and statements attributed to winner (if true) for advertising and promotional purposes, in any and all media by Sponsor including social media platforms, e.g., Instagram and/or Facebook, without additional compensation. Winners also agree to participate in promotional activities related to the Sweepstakes upon Sponsor’s reasonable request.

Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any person who tampers with the entry process or the operation of Sponsor's web site, or acts in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, or who otherwise acts in violation of these Official Rules.

    Sponsor further reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, suspend, or modify this Sweepstakes at any time, without notice or liability, for any reason, including, but not limited to, infection by computer virus, technical corruption, force majeure, or non-authorized human intervention that compromises or affects the administration, fairness, integrity, security, or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes.
