Without limitation, this contract includes indemnities to the Sponsor, defined herein, from you, a limitation of your rights and remedies, binding arbitration of claims, waiver of class action claims and waiver to the right to trial by jury.
To enter these Sweepstakes, you must have Internet access and a valid Instagram account. This game is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Instagram.
1. TIMING: The T-Mobile I’m Thankful For… Sweepstakes (the “Promotion) begins on November 22, 2021 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (“ET”)) and ends on November 22, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PT (the “Entry Period”). Sponsor’s clock will be the official timekeeping device for the Promotion.
2. ELIGIBILITY: The sponsor of this Promotion is T-Mobile USA, Inc. (“Sponsor”), 12920 SE 38th Street, Bellevue, WA. The Promotion is open to legal residents residing in the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands who are the age of majority in the entrant’s jurisdiction as of date of entry. Void where prohibited. Employees, officers or directors of Sponsor and Prize Partner, and their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, as well as the immediate family members (defined as parents, spouse, children, siblings and grandparents) and those living in the same household of each such employee, officer and director are not eligible to enter, and businesses owned by these individuals are not eligible to receive a prize. Sponsor makes the final determination as to what who is eligible to take part in the Promotion. By participating, each Participant agrees to abide by these Official Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects.
3. HERE’S HOW IT WORKS AND HOW TO ENTER: T-Mobile will post to its @TMobile Instagram account during the Entry Period (“Sweepstakes Post”) inviting entries to this Sweepstakes.
(a) Entry: To participate entrants must share the Sweepstakes Post and add a personalized response sharing what they are thankful for and include the hashtags #ImThankfulFor & #Contest (“Contest Hashtags”) (each response a “Entry”). Standard Data rates apply. Entry will be disqualified if it cannot be viewed/accessed by Sponsor/judges for any reason, or if it does not contain the Contest Hashtags. It is recommended that your account is set to “public” in order to enter, because you must be able to receive a direct message from T-Mobile if you are a potential winner, if T-Mobile cannot send a direct message to your Instagram account, you are not eligible to win. If your account is set to “protected mode,” or “private,” your Entry may not be viewable by Sponsor/judges. You must also be following @TMobile on Instagram in order to receive contest communications from us, and therefore to be eligible to win. Entries must comply with all terms and policies of the Instagram Platform. Any attempt at any other social media entry is void. Shares are not allowed and will not be counted as an entry. Sponsor makes the final determination as to what Entries are eligible to take part in the Sweepstakes.
(b) Participation Limit: Limit one Entry per person. Entries in excess of the entry limit will be disqualified. Shared/forwarded posts will not be accepted. The use of automated devices to participate in this Promotion is prohibited. Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, damaged, misdirected, illegible or incomplete entries.
(c) T-Mobile Can Use the Entry for Commercial Purposes: By entering a comment, each entrant warrants that it is created by the entrant and grants Sponsor the perpetual, unlimited and irrevocable right to post, publish, adapt, edit, make derivative works and/or otherwise use the comment in any manner, for any purpose and in any media now known or hereinafter developed.
(d) You Promise You’ve Read These Rules and Release T-Mobile and its Prize Partners from Liability: By entering the Promotion, entrants warrant they have read and understand these Official Rules and agree to be bound by them and to release, discharge and hold harmless Sponsor, Prize Partner, and their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, retailers, agencies and all of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively “Released Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, judgments, losses, injuries, demands, damages, actions and/or causes of actions, whether direct or indirect, which may be due to or arise out of participation in the Promotion.
4. ADDITIONAL TERMS: Sponsor may prohibit a Participant from participating in the Promotion if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said Participant is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion by cheating, hacking, deception or other unfair practices (including the use of automated quick entry programs) or intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other Participants or Sponsor or its agents, or if Participant has or has attempted to submit malicious code, .exe files or any file that contains malicious code. Each Entry must be manually key stroked by the individual Participant; automated and/or repetitive submissions of Entries will be disqualified.
Odds of receiving a prize depend on the time of response and the actual number of eligible Tweets and registrations received during the Entry Period for a location.
5. WINNERS: A potential prize winner’s assessment will be under supervision of Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. A random drawing of eligible Entries will be conducted within 24 hours after the Entry Period, and 20 winners will be selected from each drawing. A Participant’s Twitter account must have the ability to receive direct messages or the Sponsor will be unable to notify a potential winner. The selected potential prize winner will be notified via direct message and announcement from Sponsor via Instagram by approximately 10:00 a.m. PT on the day following the Draw Date. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared an official winner of the Sweepstakes (each a “Prize Winner”). If any selected potential winner does not respond to Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of being notified, is found to be ineligible, is not able to receive the Sponsor’s notification or cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, such potential winner may be disqualified and Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner from among all remaining eligible entries.
