  1. How Do I Submit An Entry?

You (“Entrant\”) may submit an Entry by submitting one answer to each question posted on Facebook and LinkedIn, for a total of five answers.  An Entry consists of one answer to one question posted, for a possible five total Entries per Entrant.  Each question will be posted on LinkedIn, https://www.linkedin.com/company/terracon, and Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/terracon.

We will only accept one (1) Entry per person, per question, per social media site (“Entry Limit\”) throughout the Entry Period.  In other words, two people may not enter using the same email address — you each must enter using a unique email address.  If one person submits a valid Entry on each social media site, that person will only be eligible for one prize, and treated as one Entry, not two.

The Entrant’s first response to a question will be the recorded response for that Entrant.  We are not responsible for Entries that we do not receive for any reason, or for Entries that we receive but are not decipherable for any reason.  Any Entry submitted outside of the Entry Period will not be considered for a prize.

If a dispute results as to the identity of an Entrant, it will be determined that the Entry was submitted by the person whose name is attached to the contact information that was submitted with the Entry.

We will automatically disqualify:

(1)        Any incomplete or illegible Entry; and

(2)        Any Entries that we receive from you that are in excess of the Entry Limit described above.

Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify Entrants who violate these Official Rules or interfere with this Contest in any manner.  If an Entrant is disqualified, Sponsor reserves the right to terminate that Entrant’s eligibility to participate in the Contest.

By submitting an Entry, Entrants agree to be bound by these Official Rules including all eligibility requirements and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding.

  1. How Will My Entries Be Reviewed?

We will review all eligible Entries received and select, at random, five winners, one winner from each of the five questions posted.  In the event that a question is not correctly answered by a single Entrant, then one winner will be selected at random from all Entrants who submitted an incorrect answer to that question.  Our decisions are final and binding.

  1. What Is The Prize?

The prize awarded to each winner will be a Terracon cookie canister.  The Estimated Retail Value (ERV) of one prize is twenty dollars ($20).

If for any reason the advertised prize is unavailable, we reserve the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value.  We will only award one (1) prize per person.  If you are selected as a potential winner of this Contest:

(1) You may not exchange your prize for the cash value equivalent or substitute the prize for any other merchandise or services;

(2) You may not designate someone else as the winner.  If you are unable or unwilling to accept your prize, we will award it to an alternate potential winner.

(3) If you accept a prize, you will be solely responsible for all applicable taxes, costs and expenses related to accepting the prize.

Lost or stolen prizes will not be replaced.

  1. How Will You Know If You Are A Winner?

On or around December 18, 2014, we will select five potential winners in a random drawing from all qualified Entrants, based on the criteria above.

If you are a potential winner, we will notify you by sending a message to the Facebook or LinkedIn account, which responded to the questions, within seven (7) days following the random drawing.  If the notification that we send is returned as undeliverable, or you are otherwise unreachable for any reason, we may award the prize to an alternate randomly selected winner if no response is received within five (5) calendar days.

If there is a dispute as to who is the potential winner, we will consider the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the social media account used to enter the Contest.

If you are a potential winner, we may require you to sign an affidavit of eligibility, liability/publicity release and W-9 form.  If you do not sign and return these required forms within the time period listed on the winner notification message, we may disqualify you and select an alternate randomly selected winner.
