Only one entry permitted per person; they can enter by submitting the completed survey OR by sending a request to email@example.com.

All entries will each be assigned a number, and the winner will be selected by an online random number generator on March 31st, 2023. The Sweepstakes period will take place between Feb. 20th – March 31st, 2023 (the “Sweepstakes Period”).
Eligibility. Open to individual legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, and Canada who are at least the legal age of majority in their state or province and country of residence prior to the date of entry. Employees, representatives and agents of the Sponsor and its affiliates, and members of their immediate family, are not eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes.
All entries must be received during the Sweepstakes Period in order to be eligible. Limit one entry per person per Sweepstakes and entrants must use their own email address. For avoidance of doubt, you may not enter multiple times using multiple accounts. All Sweepstakes entries/surveys become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Prize(s); Winner Selection & Notification of Winners; Conditions. Subject to these Official Rules, the Sponsor will award a prize to one individual who will be selected at random from among all eligible entries received by use of an online random number generator on March 31st, 2023. If you are selected to be the winner, an e-mail notification will be sent to you. The person selected to win must respond within seven (7) days of the notification being sent to them. Failure to respond within the applicable time period will result in forfeiture of prize and Sponsor shall have the option to award the prize to an alternate winner. The winner must provide any information required by Sponsor for delivery of any prize.
Subject to these Official Rules, the prize will be fulfilled by the Sponsor. Each prize will be awarded only after (a) Sponsor’s receipt of the selected winner’s response and any required affidavit of eligibility, declaration of compliance, release and/or other documentation; (b) proper verification of the selected winner’s identity; all subject to selected winner’s compliance with the Official Rules. Return of the prize notification as “undeliverable” or any failure to respond or to return any required affidavit or other documentation in the time period provided above, or any other failure to comply with these Official Rules, will result in disqualification of the selected winner and forfeiture of the prize. Sponsor is not required to award elsewhere any prizes forfeited by the chosen winner. Sponsor is not responsible for any late, lost, stolen, damaged, delayed, or undelivered prizes.
Each winner will be solely responsible for paying any taxes and any other expenses incurred by the winner in connection with receiving the prize or participating in the Sweepstakes, including any income taxes, sales or use taxes, value added taxes, goods and services taxes, or harmonized sales taxes.

Each prize will be awarded “as is” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). If you win a prize, you may not transfer, assign, or redeem the prize for cash. The Sponsor may substitute a prize with a prize of similar or greater value.
