(“Case-Mate”), and its subsidiaries, advertising agencies and third party fulfillment agencies, and their respective agents, employees, officers, directors, successors and assigns (the “Offering Parties”) are not eligible to win this Contest. By participating in this Contest, you agree: (a) to be bound by these Official Rules and by the interpretations of these Official Rules by Case-Mate and by the decisions of Case-Mate, which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Contest; (b) to release and hold harmless the Offering Parties against any and all claims, injury or damage arising, in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, out of or relating to your participation in this Contest and/or use or misuse or redemption of the Grand Prize (as hereinafter defined) (including any travel or activity related thereto); and (c) acknowledge compliance with these Official Rules and the decisions of Case-Mate, which are final and binding. Your participation in the Contest is subject to all applicable national, federal, state and local laws.
The “#MAKEITNAKED” Contest COMMENCES at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) on May 10, 2016 and ENDS at 11:59:59 a.m. EST on June 30, 2016 (the “Contest Period”). All entries must be posted to Instagram by 11:59:59 p.m. EST on June 30, 2016 to be eligible.
To enter you must follow these steps during the entry period:
You must complete the entry process fully and accurately with all required information in accordance with these Official Rules. Entry information will be reproduced exactly as submitted if you are selected as a winner. Case-Mate isn’t responsible for incorrect, illegible or incomplete information in giving credit for a submission.
The Online Entries submitted in accordance with these Official Rules are each referred to hereinafter as an “Eligible Entry” or collectively as the “Eligible Entries”. In the event of a dispute over who submitted a winning Eligible Entry, the authorized account holder of the winning Instagram account used to participate in the Contest at the actual time of entry will be deemed the entrant and he or she must comply with these Official Rules. The “authorized account holder” of an Instagram account is defined as the natural person who is recognized by Instagram as the owner of the account through which a photo was submitted for the Contest. Proof that you submitted an entry to enter the Contest (regardless of method of entry) does not constitute proof or evidence that Case-Mate actually received it within the Contest Period. All entries become the property Case-Mate and will not be acknowledged or returned. By submitting a photo, the entrant authorizes Case-Mate to display the photo on its website. The odds of winning will be determined by the total number of Eligible Entries received. Incomplete or inaccurate entries are void and will not be considered for participation in the Contest.
The Judges, selected by Case-Mate, will judge all Eligible Entries based on the following criteria: creativity (50%), and quality of the photo (50%).
One eligible participant during the “Contest Period” who submitted the Winning Submission, as determined by the Judges pursuant to the Judging section above, will be the winner (the “Winner") and receive an Apple Watch of their choice (up to $350) and a Case-Mate Apple Watch Band of their choice (up to $100).
The Winner will be announced within one week of the end of the Contest Period, by Case-Mate. Case-Mate will make up to 2 attempts over the one week period following the Winner selection to contact the potential Grand Prize Winner via their Instagram account that provided his/her entry. If a potential Winner does not respond to the Instragram direct message sent during the one week period, the potential Winner will be disqualified and, at Case-Mate’s sole discretion and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected from among the remaining applicable Eligible Entries received. Case-Mate expressly reserves the right to delay the announcement (if at all) of the Winner for creative or technical reasons or for any other reason Case-Mate deems necessary. Winners may waive their right to receive prizes. Prizes are non-assignable and nontransferable. No substitutions allowed.
The potential Winner must prove eligibility, including, without limitation, proof of age and residence within 3 days of the Winner being notified as the potential Winner. In the event of non-compliance by the potential Winner, such potential Winner shall be disqualified and all privileges otherwise due as the Winner shall be terminated and an alternative potential Winner may be chosen from among all of the remaining applicable Eligible Entries received, if time permits, in Case-Mate’s sole discretion.
By entering the Contest and accepting the prize, the Winner releases the Offering Parties from any and all liability, loss, claims, demands, and causes of action for personal injury and/or damage, theft, loss, or any other harm suffered in connection with this Contest or the use/misuse or acceptance of the Prize or any portion thereof, and (b) except where prohibited by law, grants a promotional release to the Offering Parties and their respective designees giving them the right to use his/her name, address (city and state), photograph, voice and/or other likeness, prize information and contest design for sale, advertising, trade and promotional purposes without additional compensation in all media now known or hereafter discovered, worldwide in perpetuity, without notice or review or approval (collectively, the “Releases”).
