Please carefully read these Rules (available at Blogs - Blogs & Forums (qvc.com),). If you do not agree to the Rules, you should not participate in the Promotion or any element thereof; entering will constitute your acceptance of all applicable Rules. The Promotion and any element thereof: are offered at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, without obligation; may at any time be terminated, cancelled, or modified as applicable by Sponsor in its sole discretion and/or any time period extended, shortened, or modified. Any modification will be applied prospectively from the time announced, and not retroactively.

 

NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.  A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT REQUIRED TO ENTER. Void where prohibited or restricted by law.

 

ARBITRATION NOTICE: BY ENTERING, YOU AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND ANY PROMOTION ENTITY ARISING OR RELATING TO THE PROMOTION AND ANY ELEMENT THEREOF WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING, INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A JURY TRIAL, CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION. See Disputes/Arbitration provision.

 

OVERVIEW:  The Promotion pertains only to QVC officially sponsored social media promotions advertised and/or facilitated through QVC Social Media pages on various social media platforms anticipated to include Instagram and/or Facebook (“Social Media Platforms” “Platform” or “Social Media”). Sponsor may, from time to time but without obligation, announce a sweepstakes through one or more Platform(s) where eligible consumers may be provided an opportunity to complete a stated activity to enter for a chance to win the stated prize(s) (“prize”) (each is a “Sweepstakes”). Sponsor may conduct one or more different Sweepstakes, at same or similar time(s) on the same Platform.  Each Sweepstakes is entirely separate from any other Sweepstakes whether run on the same or other Platform (even if they may have different, same or similar components or details). Prizes are available for each respective Sweepstakes unless otherwise stated, and because each Sweepstakes is entirely separate, non-winning entries do not carry over into other Sweepstakes, if any. Duration of a Sweepstakes, prize quantities, values and other details may vary, and will be as stated. Selected potential winner(s) may be contacted via DM or email after a Sweepstakes for prize fulfillment (in Sponsor’s sole discretion). IMPORTANT NOTICE: BY ENTERING, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SELECTED POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE NOT FINAL UNTIL VERIFIED BY SPONSOR. Sponsor may work in partnership with one or more of our promotion partners, vendors, manufacturers and/or retailers in connection with a Sweepstakes. The Promotion and any element thereof will be governed by these official rules (the “Official Rules”), which will generally apply and are incorporated by this reference into every Sweepstakes, and any Sweepstakes specific terms such as prize, prize quantities/details, time periods or instructions that vary from these general Official Rules etc., will be communicated in connection with the particular Sweepstakes (“Specific Terms”). The Specific Terms are incorporated herein, will supplement and be in addition to these Official Rules. For ease of reference, where applicable, all Sweepstakes and related Specific Terms and activities are collectively included in the reference to “Promotion” herein. The Specific Terms will be communicated in connection with each specific Sweepstakes, through a call-to-action communicated through Sponsor’s and/or Promotion Entities official Social Media Pages via the respective Social Media Platform(s) (“Sweepstakes CTA”). Usually, the Official Rules and the Specific Terms work together (collectively the “Rules”), but occasionally, Sponsor may need to adjust some of these Official Rules for a particular Sweepstakes and in such case those specific changes will be stated in connection with a Sweepstakes in the Specific Terms.

 

ELIGIBILITY:  The Promotion is offered in the fifty (50) United States including D.C.

RANDOM DRAWING/ODDS/WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: It is anticipated that one or more potential winner(s) (as stated in the Sweepstakes CTA) will be selected in a random drawing (“selected winner”) conducted by Sponsor (or its authorized representative) on or within approx. fifteen (15) working days after the end of a Sweepstakes Entry Period from among all eligible Entries received for that Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received for the applicable Sweepstakes. Unless otherwise stated, non-winning Entries will not carry over into subsequent Entry Periods or Sweepstakes. Selected winner(s) may be notified using direct message and asked to respond with the information stated within the time specified by Sponsor.  In the event there is more than one Participant with the same identifiers, only the Participant who receives the official DM prize notice from Sponsor as provided above is deemed a selected winner. The selected winner will then have the time stated in the DM to provide information or follow the instructions communicated by Sponsor. Any selected winner announced or who receives a prize notification is not a final winner and has not yet won at that point; winning status and prize award are subject to verification and compliance, and once determined a winner will be given instructions to claim their prize. If a selected winner cannot be reached with one attempt via the Social Media Platform, declines or refuses the prize for any reason, fails to follow the instructions, fails to (timely) respond or reply on or within the time specified by Sponsor in any notification, is non-compliant, or is found to be ineligible, they will forfeit the prize. Once notified, a selected winner will not be notified again. Promotion Entities shall have no liability for any communication and/or prize notification that is intercepted, not received, not delivered, misdirected due to privacy settings or to spam or junk folders, not timely acted upon, or otherwise not responded to by a selected winner for any reason whatsoever, and the prize will be forfeited. After one unsuccessful attempt to award a prize to a selected winner in any particular Sweepstakes, that prize will remain unawarded; there will not be a second-chance drawing in the Promotion or any element thereof.

 

Prize or prize notifications that are unawarded, unclaimed, undelivered, misdelivered, refused, or returned will not be re-awarded. Depending on the prize in a particular Sweepstakes, Participants understand and agree that potential winner(s) (and other prize recipients if applicable) may be required to sign, have witnessed and return a Declaration of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release within the time specified by Sponsor, or else such prize will be forfeited.

 

PRIZES/Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): It is anticipated that a prize or prize bundle for each Sweepstakes will range in value from $10 up to a max. value of $599; however, prize(s) available to be awarded in a Sweepstakes will be as stated in the Sweepstakes CTA, including available prize quantities, denomination and approx. retail value. Prize award for each Sweepstakes is subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and Specific Terms, and Declaration, if any. Prizes are anticipated to vary in retail value but may consist of individual or bundled items, or other merchandise products or gift card. Any gift card, voucher or certificate issued as a prize if any is for promotional purposes only, may not be replaced by Sponsor if lost, misplaced, stolen, damaged or destroyed, and is subject to the terms and conditions of issuer. Prizes shipped within the U.S. only where USPS ships.  Limit one (1) prize per Participant, per Sweepstakes. Any difference between the stated ARV and actual value of a prize will not be awarded as cash or otherwise.  Any and all applicable local, state, and federal taxes and all expenses not specifically stated herein are solely the responsibility of a winner of a prize $600 or more, if applicable. Winners are advised to seek independent counsel regarding tax implications of their prize winning, if applicable.  Only the description and number of prizes stated is/are available to be awarded. In no event will Promotion Entities be responsible to award more than the stated number of prizes, or prizes in different denominations than stated for the respective Sweepstakes. Prizes will be awarded only assuming sufficient eligible Entries are received for that particular Sweepstakes. If because of technical, typographical, mechanical, communication or other errors or for any other reason, there are more claims for a prize in any level than prizes offered for a Sweepstakes, and only if considered equitable and feasible by Sponsor, a random drawing will be held among all eligible non-suspect claimants in such category to award such prize for the respective Sweepstakes. Prizes cannot be assigned, transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted, except by Sponsor who may, at its sole and absolute discretion, substitute a prize, or any item thereof with a prize or substitute item of equal or greater value. Prizes, and any element thereof, including any products received as a prize, may not be sold, resold, auctioned, bartered, or placed into any other unauthorized channels of distribution. Any prize or element of a prize pictured or communicated in connection with a Sweepstakes is for illustrative purposes only and may not be the actual prize awarded. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ALL VALID MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO A PRIZE, ALL PRIZES IN THE PROMOTION ARE PROVIDED "AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
