Any photo meeting these requirements may be eligible for the Contest. Once you upload your Submission using the Hashtag, you will be entered into the Contest. By using the hashtag in connection with your post, you are acknowledging and agreeing that sponsor has the right to stream your post through the Instagram, use your post on HappyWax.com, and use your post for future Happy Wax marketing materials.
By entering the Contest, all entrants understand and agree that all Submissions will be posted on the Internet and/or social media (and other media as designated by the Sponsor in its sole discretion) for public view and any such posting will be deemed made at the direction of the entrant within the meaning of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Communications Decency Act. Further, no entrant will be eligible to receive a prize unless Sponsor determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such entrant’s Submission has been or can be sufficiently cleared for legal purposes.
You may enter as many unique submissions as you like. Duplicate entries will be ineligible. All entries must be received by the end of the Promotion Period in order to be considered. No entries or entry videos will be returned. Sponsor will be the official time keeper for this Contest. Proof of entering information on Instagram is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry.
This Contest is open to legal residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the date of entry. Directors, officers, and employees of Sponsor, its parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, distributors, agents, professional advisors, printers, and advertising, promotional and marketing agencies (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “Promotion Entities”), friends, family and the immediate family members of each and persons living in the same household of each (whether related or not) are not eligible to enter the contest or win a prize. This Contest is void where prohibited by law. Any contestants who do not abide by any of the rules and regulations set forth are subject to be deemed ineligible.
Winner Selection & Notification
At the end of the Promotion Period, the winner will be selected by Sponsor (or its designee) based upon the following criteria: (i) the Submission’s creativity; (ii) the Submission’s originality; (iii) quality of the image (the “Judging Criteria”). The Judging Criteria are to be applied in the sole discretion of Sponsor; each entrant agrees to be bound by and not challenge the final decisions of Sponsor. Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner by posting a comment on the potential winner’s Submission or by direct message including Sponsor’s contact information. The potential winner must then contact Sponsor using that contact information as soon as possible but no later than one (1) week of notification. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within one (1) week of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winner(s) of an applicable prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner(s) of such applicable prize after such attempts have been made, if any, such prize may go unawarded.
For this promotion, there will be one (1) grand prize (the “Prize”) consisting of a $300 gift card that is eligible on items on HappyWax.com.
The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes (and the reporting consequences thereof) on the value of their prize and any other fees or costs associated with the acceptance of the prize and may be issued an IRS 1099 tax form and is advised to seek independent counsel regarding prize winnings. Prize will be awarded only if the potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable, non-transferable and have no cash value. Prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Contest materials are for illustrative purposes only. All details and other restrictions of the prize(s) not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. No cash alternative or substitution of the prize(s) will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute prize(s) of comparable value if any prize listed is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. The potential winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If a winner is a minor, at Sponsor’s option, the applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner, or the parent or legal guardian of such minor winner will be required to ratify and sign Prize Claim Documents. If any potential winner (or, in the case of a minor, such minor winner’s parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within one (1) day of prize notification, the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. The winner will be notified by November 30th 2019 via Instagram direct message. The winner will receive a direct message from the @HappyWaxMelts Instagram account.
