The German Professor 10,000 FB Likes Giveaway (“Sweepstakes”) will consist of 5 separate giveaways. The specific beginning and ending times of each promotion will be given on the individual Facebook post announcing each giveaway. The “Promotion Period” begins when the first giveaway is posted and ends when the fifth and final giveaway closes. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of The German Professor (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.
In order to be eligible, participants must be (1) at least the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, and (2) a legal resident of the United States, Germany, or another country that allows random-giveaway sweepstakes without registration, bonding, translation, language or local drawing requirements. Sponsor and members of Sponsor’s immediate family are ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win a prize. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.
The winners of the Sweepstakes will be selected via Rafflecopter in a random drawing from among all eligible Entries received throughout the Promotion Period. The random drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final. Odds of winning will vary depending on the number of eligible Entries received.
Winners will be notified by email to the email address used to enter the Sweepstakes within 24 hours following the random drawing. The German Professor shall have no liability for a winner’s failure to receive notices due to winners’ spam, junk email, or other security settings, or for winners’ provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. Potential winners must communicate their acceptance of a prize by email as directed by Sponsor within 48 hours of notification. Any winner notification not responded to or returned as undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the prize.
If the selected winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim the prize within 48 hours from the time award notification was sent, or fails to return a completed and executed declaration and releases as required and in a timely manner, the prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected.
Prizes and their approximate retail value (ARV) will be announced individually via posts on The German Professor Facebook Page. Only one prize per person and per household will be awarded. Prizes cannot be transferred, redeemed for cash, or substituted by winner. The German Professor reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to award a substitute prize of equal or greater value if a prize described in these Official Rules is unavailable or cannot be awarded, in whole or in part, for any reason. The Sponsor has deemed the ARV of the prize to be equal to the retail price set by the publisher. That determination is final and binding and cannot be appealed. If the actual value of the prize turns out to be less than the stated ARV, the difference will not be awarded in cash. Sponsor makes no representation or warranty concerning the appearance, safety, or performance of any prize awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations may apply. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prize items.
Prizes will only be awarded and/or delivered to addresses in countries where the Sweepstakes terms are legal. All federal, state, and local taxes, fees, and surcharges are the sole responsibility of the prize winner. Failure to comply with the Official Rules will result in forfeiture of the prize.
Prospective participants may enter the Sweepstakes during the Promotion Period online by following the directions posted with each giveaway announcement on The German Professor Facebook Page. Entries that do not adhere to the rules or specifications may be disqualified at the sole discretion of The German Professor. Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple email addresses, identities, or devices in an attempt to circumvent the Rules will void that entrant’s Entries and that entrant may be disqualified at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. Final eligibility for the award of any prize is subject to eligibility verification as described in these Official Rules. Each Facebook post announcing a prize offer during the Promotion Period will identify the begin and end dates and times for that particular prize. All Entries must be posted by the end of the noted end date and time in order to be eligible for that prize opportunity.
