After sending your text message entry, you may receive one (1) text message in response to your text entry confirming your entry and legal disclaimers from Kellogg Company (“Sponsor”).  You may opt-out of receiving the promotional text messages from Sponsor at any time by sending a reply text message with the word “STOP”.  Ttthe text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate, and the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages.  Check with your carrier for details.  Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability.  Wireless service providers may charge entrants for each text message, including any error message that is sent and received in connection with the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan.  Message and data rates apply.  Entrants should consult their wireless service provider’s pricing plan for details.  Entry by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning.  By texting an entry, the entrant grants permission to the Sponsor to notify them via a return text message and must agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith.  You are responsible for all applicable fees and taxes associated with placing a text entry.  Sponsor in its sole discretion may add or delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice.  Proof of text messaging the Short Code is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such Sweepstakes entry.  Text entries must be completed by 9/30/17 at 11:59:59 PM (ET).

 

b) MAIL-IN ENTRY: You may also enter during the Promotion Period by hand-writing, on a plain 3”x 5” piece of paper, your name, address, age, daytime/evening phone numbers and name of your Participating Retailer.  You must include the name of your Participating Retailer with your entry or your entry will be considered void.  Mail your entry in an envelope with sufficient postage affixed to: Kellogg’s Multicultural Back to School Text-to-Win Sweepstakes, Attn: Entry, P.O. Box 7656, Kalamazoo, MI  49003-7656.  Mail-in entries must be postmarked by 9/30/17 and received by 10/7/17.

 

No automated entry devices, bots and/or other programs and/or software are permitted for entry.  No mechanically reproduced, altered, forged, or facsimile entries will be accepted.  All entries become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned.  Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, misdirected, technically corrupted or garbled entries, which will be disqualified, or for problems of any kind, whether mechanical, human or electronic.  Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes.  Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.  Only fully completed entries are eligible.

 

If due to programming, production or other errors, more prizes are awarded and/or claimed than intended, the intended number of Sweepstakes prizes will be awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid claims.  No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  All potential winning entries are subject to verification by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding.   A participant is not a winner of any prize, even if the website and/or a confirmation text message/email should so indicate, unless and until said participant’s eligibility has been verified and said participant has been notified that verification is complete.  Sponsor will not accept Screen Shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.  Any entry that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective entry and is void and will not be honored.

 

Limit one (1) entry per person per Day, regardless of method of entry.  All entries in excess of this limit will be deemed void.  For purposes of this Sweepstakes, a “Day” is defined at a 24-hour period beginning at 12:00:00 AM (ET) and ending at 11:59:59 PM (ET).  Sponsor is not responsible for any change of mailing address and/or telephone number of participants.  In the event of a dispute over the identity of a text entrant in the Sweepstakes, entry will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the mobile telephone number provided at the time of participation.  “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a mobile telephone number by an Internet access provided, online service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning the mobile telephone number.  The potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the mobile telephone account associated with the winning entry.  If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.  Please allow up to eight (8) weeks from time of prize claim until confirmation of prize winner.

 

4.    RANDOM DRAWING: Seventy three (73) winners (see rule #3a for prize distribution) will be selected in a random drawing to be conducted on or about 10/10/17 among all eligible entries received from all methods combined for each Participating Retailer by Sponsor or its designee.  The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding.

 

5.    WINNER NOTIFICATION: Potential prize winners will be notified by email, phone and/or mail, using contact information provided or collected at the time of entry.  Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.  If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such prize will be forfeited and an alternate prize winner may be selected.

6.    PRIZES/APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES (ARV)/ODDS: Seventy three (73) Grand Prizes (see rule #3a for prize distribution) – Each winner will receive a $500 Virtual Reward Card and $1,500 (in the form of a check) will be donated to a local school of the winner’s choice (school must be within forty (40) mile radius of retail store associated with winner’s entry).  School recipient of prize must be a primary or secondary education school and must be exempt from taxes under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  Virtual reward card is subject to the terms and conditions associated with its use.  Odds of winning depend on total number of eligible entries received from all methods combined for each Participating Retailer.  Unclaimed prizes will not be awarded.  All applicable federal, state, and local taxes on prizes are the sole responsibility of the prize winners.  Limit one (1) prize per person for the Promotion Period., regardless of the number of entries submitted for Participating Retailers.  Only the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules is available to be won in the Sweepstakes. 

 

7.    GENERAL: Potential prize winners (if a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) will be required to sign and return a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release and, where permitted by law, Publicity Release within fourteen (14) days after first notification attempt.  If prize notification or prize is returned as non-deliverable, prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected in accordance with these Official Rules.  No correspondence will be acknowledged.  No cash equivalents, substitutions or transfer of prize permitted except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value.  By entering Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release and hold harmless, Kellogg Company, Participating Retailers and their respective related companies, parents, subsidiaries, limited liability companies, affiliates, directors, officers, employees, assigns and their respective agents and agencies (“Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation or attempt to participate in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize.  Entrants and winners (i.e. entrants that accept a prize) release and agree to indemnify and hold the Released Parties harmless against any and all claims and liability out of acceptance, possession, use or misuses of prize, or participation in this Sweepstakes.  Released Parties will have no liability whatsoever for any injuries, losses or damages of any kind resulting from acceptance, possession, use and/or misuse of any prize or participation in the Sweepstakes or any prize-related activities.  Acceptance of a prize shall be construed as and signify the winner's agreement and consent that Sponsor and the applicable Participating Retailer may use the winner's name, voice, likeness and/or prize information, without limitation, for promotional purposes without further consideration, review, approval or payment, unless prohibited by law.  By participating in this Sweepstakes, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding in all respects.  Sponsor is not responsible for any typographical or other error in the printing of the offer or in administration of the Sweepstakes.  Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

 

ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THIS SWEEPSTAKES.  AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
