False or fictitious names and invalid email addresses will not be eligible for additional entries and providing false or fictitious names and invalid email addresses may be grounds for disqualification from the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not additional entries shall be issued in connection with names and email addresses provided hereunder.
- PRIZES & ODDS: One (1) Grand Prize Winner will be randomly selected from among all eligible entries to receive a check for $5,000 (the "Grand Prize"). Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. The Grand Prize is non-assignable and nontransferable. Where applicable, the Grand Prize Winner is solely responsible for payment of all taxes on the Grand Prize. Any costs or expenses incurred by the Grand Prize Winner in claiming or using his/her prize will be the responsibility of the Grand Prize Winner. The Grand Prize Winner shall be required to claim his or her prize by completing, signing and notarizing an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, except where prohibited by law, publicity release, which must be returned via mail or hand delivery within ten (10) business days of date of sender's postmark. Failure of the Grand Prize Winner to timely sign, notarize and return any required affidavit and release, or to claim his or her prize or comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules, will result in disqualification, the forfeiture of his or her interest in the prize, and the award of the prize to a substitute Grand Prize Winner to be randomly selected from all remaining eligible entries. The Grand Prize Winner must sign any other legal documents which Sponsor may require (including W9 tax forms). Non-compliance may result in disqualification and selection of a substitute Grand Prize Winner at random from among all remaining entries.
- WINNER SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND ACCEPTANCE: A random drawing from among all eligible entries received will be conducted during regular business hours on or about May 21, 2010, to select one (1) Grand Prize Winner. The drawing will be conducted as follows: one (1) Grand Prize Provisional Winner will be selected at random and Sponsor's fulfillment center will attempt to contact the selected Grand Prize Provisional Winner in person by telephone during regular business hours (9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) using the telephone numbers provided on the entry form. If Sponsor's fulfillment center is unable to reach a Grand Prize Provisional Winner in person (Sponsor's fulfillment center will attempt to reach Provisional Winner up to three (3) times during a twenty-four hour period and no messages will be left), that Grand Prize Provisional Winner will be disqualified and a substitute Grand Prize Provisional Winner will be randomly selected from the remaining eligible entries. The first eligible Grand Prize Provisional Winner that Sponsor's fulfillment center successfully contacts in person by telephone and who claims the Grand Prize in accordance with these Official Rules will be declared the final Grand Prize Winner. The Grand Prize Winner may waive the right to receive a prize. The return of any prize, the Grand Prize Winner's affidavit/release or prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification, the forfeiture of all interest in the Grand Prize, and selection of a substitute Grand Prize Winner from among all remaining eligible entries. Unless prohibited by law, acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for the Sponsor and its agencies to use the Grand Prize Winner's name, address (city and state) and/or likeness for advertising and trade purposes without further compensation, worldwide and in perpetuity, in any and all forms of media, now known and hereafter devised, including without limitation the Internet.
- CONDITIONS: By entering, participants agree to be bound by these Official Rules and by the decisions of Sponsor and Sweepstakes judges appointed by Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects. Any person attempting to defraud or in any way tamper with this Sweepstakes will be ineligible for prizes and may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
- DISCLAIMERS: By entering, participants acknowledge and agree that the Sponsor, Scripps Networks, LLC, Facebook, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, franchisees and the officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives of each of the foregoing companies (collectively, the "Sweepstakes Entities"), will not be liable for losses or injuries of any kind resulting from acceptance/possession/use and/or misuse of prize(s), travel to and from any prize-related activity, participation in the Sweepstakes, printing, mailing or distribution errors, or any malfunctions of the telephone network, computer Internet system, computer dating mechanism, computer equipment, software, or any combination thereof, or for any entries that are late (including delayed data transmissions), tampered with, garbled, incomplete, misdirected, lost, postage-due, forged, illegible, inaudible, mutilated, mechanically duplicated, mass machine printed, or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules. Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible or liable for any injury or damage to any participant's or third person's computer and/or its contents, related to or resulting from Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, suspend or modify the Sweepstakes if, at its sole discretion, it determines that for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as originally planned, or fraud, technical failures, printing, mailing or distribution errors, or any other unanticipated causes or occurrences have compromised the fairness or integrity of the Sweepstakes. In the event the Sweepstakes is terminated prior to the stated end date, Sponsor reserves the right to award the Grand Prize in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received as of the date of termination. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS REGARDING THE PRIZES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR OR GENERAL USE OR PURPOSE.
