At the end of the Promotion Period, a random drawing will be conducted by Sponsor to select one (1) prize winner from among all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, as more fully set forth below. Entry in the Sweepstakes will not be carried over to, or included in, any other precedent or subsequent Sweepstakes that may be offered by the Sponsor, and will not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or Sweepstakes. By accepting these Official Rules, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects. The Sweepstakes is not in any way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or conducted in association with, Twitter Inc., Facebook Inc., Instagram or any other entity.
- ELIGIBILITY: Only legal residents in France at the time of entry are eligible to participate. You must be eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry to be eligible to enter. Directors, officers and employees of the Sponsor, and its respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, divisions, distributors, agents, professional advisors, financers, printers and advertising, promotional and marketing agencies (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the “Sponsor”) and the immediate family members of each and persons living in the same household of each (whether related or not) are not eligible to win the prize. By consenting to these Official Rules, you represent and warrant that you meet the eligibility requirements.
- HOW TO ENTER: No purchase is necessary to enter or win the Sweepstakes.
You must have a valid and active Instagram account in order to participate in the Sweepstakes. You can enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to win by cumulatively:
- Following @happiest_baby_europe and @aliciamechani
- Tagging another Instagram account on the giveaway post on @aliciamechani’s Instagram feed and using Hashtags #IwantSNOO and #I_agree_with_ the_Rules (“Submission”)
Participants are limited to one (1) entry per person throughout the Competition Period. Any entries in addition to this may be disqualified. Participants may only win one prize per person, irrespective of the number of entries submitted.
- VALIDITY OF ENTRY: The Sponsor is the official timekeeper for the Sweepstakes. Proof of sending entrant’s Submission is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by the Sponsor of the Submission. All entries must be received before the end of the Promotion Period in order to participate.
Should multiple users of the same Instagram account enter the Sweepstakes and a dispute thereafter arises regarding the identity of the entrant, the authorized account holder of said account at the time of entry will be considered the entrant. Entry must be made by the entrant (unless you prove the opposite). Entries made by any other individual or any entity, including, but not limited to, commercial Sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will, if detected, be declared invalid and disqualified from the Sweepstakes.
Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, including, but not limited to, the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries which have been submitted in this manner will be disqualified.
The Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who is acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in a disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the entrant who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to the Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed disqualified.
The Sponsor shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information howsoever it arises. The Sponsor assumes no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, loss, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries which is not caused by Sponsor.
Any Submission that is considered by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion to be obscene, pornographic or libelous, to constitute hate speech or that is otherwise objectionable, in whole or in part, will be disqualified. Any communication or information transmitted to Sponsor by an entrant’s internet service provider or otherwise is and will be treated as non-confidential and nonproprietary.
- PRIZE: The prize shall consist of one (1) Happiest Baby SNOO Smart Sleeper (retail value EU 1,295). Actual/appraised value may slightly differ at time of prize award. No cash or other prize substitution shall be permitted except at the Sponsor’s discretion. The prize is nontransferable. Any and all prize-related expenses, including without limitation any and all state, and/or local taxes, shall be the sole responsibility of winner (the “Winner”). Sponsor expects many entrants to enter the Sweepstakes, but only one (1) entrant will win the prize.
- WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: After the Promotion Period, by May 24th, 2021, one (1) winner will be randomly selected in a drawing from all eligible entries received throughout the Promotion Period and the winner announced via the Sponsor's Instagram account. The drawing will be conducted using a computerized method of random selection chosen by Promoter in its sole discretion. Subject to the winner meeting the requirements of these Official Rules, the prize will be distributed on or before June 2nd, 2021.
The winner will be notified of their winning status either by direct message to his or her Instagram account, in person, by phone, or by email. If the winner does not respond within seven (7) calendar days of the first notification attempt, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable, the winner will automatically forfeit the prize and an alternate winner will be randomly selected. The Promoter shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or otherwise not received for any reason, when not due to Sponsor’s fault or negligence.
If a winner is found to be ineligible, has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason, such winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries received for the Sweepstakes. In such circumstances, the Sponsor will attempt to contact up to two (2) alternate winners (i.e. three separate participants in total), after which if there is still no confirmed winner the prize may go un-awarded at the Sponsor's sole discretion.
