NTTA Public Affairs 

10th Anniversary of RSS Sweepstakes


Official Rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  PURCHASES DO NOT INCREASE ODDS OF WINNING.  ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON NUMBER OF ELIGIBLE ENTRIES RECEIVED.  VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

 

  1. Promotion and Sponsor(s): By entering the NTTA Public Affair’s 10th Anniversary of RSS Sweepstakes Promotion (the “Promotion”) you, as an Entrant, agree to and are bound by these Official Rules, all Sponsor-related terms and conditions, as well as the decisions of Sponsor which are final and binding in all respects. Entrant is free to disclaim any prize and status as Entrant and as a result will not be eligible to receive any prize. The Promotion is sponsored and administered by NTTA Public Affairs, 5900 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, Texas 75093 (“Sponsor”). All decisions related to, as well as all interpretation of, these Official Rules by Sponsor are final and binding.  While this Promotion may be promoted via social media websites, such websites are not affiliated with Sponsor or this Promotion.  This Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any other site or medium that might host content where information about this Promotion is posted or published (collectively “Content Hosts”).  Entrant is providing his/her information only to Sponsor and not to Content Hosts.
  2. Entry Period The Promotion includes three Entry Periods, as defined in Table 2 below (each an “Entry Period”). Only entries submitted and received during a given Entry Period will be accepted.  Sponsor is the official timekeeper of this promotion.  Entries received outside of an Entry Period are not valid. Odds of winning any prize during any Entry Period depend on the number of eligible entries received for that Entry Period.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY:  Entrant can enter the Promotion without making any purchase. The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received during an Entry Period. The odds of being selected as a potential winner do not depend upon the making of any purchase.  In other words, a purchase will not increase Entrant’s chances of winning.

Entrant agrees that its amount of time and effort necessary to enter is not more than a trivial amount of time or effort.

Any Entrant that does not comply with these requirements or attempts to tamper with the operation or results of the Promotion will be disqualified.

  1. Eligibility: The Promotion is open only to legal residents of Texas who reside in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, age 18 or older, who at the time of entry have a valid and active Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account. Employees of Sponsor, or of its parent and affiliate companies and suppliers, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible to participate in this Promotion. Eligibility is contingent upon agreement to, compliance with, and fulfillment of all requirements of these Official Rules.

LIMITS ON PROMOTION:

This Promotion is void where prohibited. If any provision of these official rules are declared or found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, then such provision will be null and void but each other provision hereof not so affected will be enforced to the full extent permitted by applicable law. Other restrictions may apply.

  1. How to Enter: There are two (2) methods of entry.

Entries from accounts that are not designated “public” or that are not otherwise visible or searchable by Sponsor using standard social media tracking and monitoring tools will be disqualified.  Entrant agrees that Promotion entries may be made available by Sponsor for viewing, rating, reviewing and commenting by the public.  By entering this Promotion, Entrant waives all privacy expectations that Entrant may have otherwise had with respect to any entry.a.  First Method of Entry:  Photo Entry: During each Entry Period within the Promotion Period, you will automatically become an Entrant and receive one (1) entry for that Entry Period by taking an originally created photograph (the “Photo”) showcasing yourself along with an NTTA Roadside Safety Services employee, standup NTTA-branded cutout and/or an official NTTA Roadside Safety Services branded vehicle, and posting the Photo to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account.  The Photo must be entirely original and created by Entrant.  The Photo must not have been submitted previously in any promotion of any kind or exhibited or displayed publically through any means.  Entrant is responsible for obtaining, prior to entry, all releases and consents necessary to permit the exhibition and use, for all purposes and without any additional compensation, of the likeness(es) of all persons appearing in the Photo.  If any person appearing in the Photo is a minor, Entrant agrees to obtain and hereby represents that Entrant has obtained the guardian’s consent and is authorized to, and by submitting the Photo does so, authorize Sponsor to use the image(s) and likeness(es) of the minor(s) depicted in the Photo in connection with this Promotion and in any related advertising.

Entrants can engage via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (where the sweepstakes will be hosted). If they post within their own profiles, the post’s setting must be set to “public” so NTTA can view their submission.
  2. Conditions of Entry: By entering or participating in this Promotion, Entrant agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and its authorized representatives, which are final and binding in all matters concerning this Promotion. Entries not legitimately submitted in accordance with these Official Rules are void. Only qualified entries received by Sponsor during an Entry  Period are eligible for participation.  All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.

Entrants may be required to provide the following personal information in order to be eligible for a Promotion prize: first, middle and last name, month, day and year of birth, email address, complete mailing address (including city, state or province, and zip or postal code) and phone number (including area code) (collectively or individually, “Personal Information”).  All requested Personal Information must be provided to participate in the Promotion and to be eligible to win a prize. By entering this Promotion, Entrant agrees to Sponsor’s manner of collection, use, retention and disclosure of Entrant’s Personal Information submitted in connection with the Promotion.  The collection, use and retention of Entrant’s Personal Information is governed by Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein as part of these Official Rules and can be found at https://www.ntta.org/Pages/Privacy-Policy.aspx.

. Unintelligible entries; entries with incomplete, invalid, incorrect or noncurrent information; entries that are counterfeit, damaged or tampered with in any way; and entries with printing, production or typographical errors will be disqualified.  Disqualified entries and entries that are late, lost, damaged, misdirected, stolen or not delivered are not the responsibility of Sponsor and will be disqualified.  Sponsor is not responsible if a potential winner does not receive his or her prize because erroneous, expired, canceled, fraudulent or fake information was provided during Promotion.   Proof of sent entry and/or entry receipt (such as a copy of a “thank you” screen or message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of entry by Sponsor for purposes of this Promotion.

Participation must be by Entrant.  Participation by any other individual or entity, and/or originating at any other website, email address or phone number, including, but not limited to, commercial promotion, subscription notification and/or promotion entering service sites, is invalid and will be disqualified from this Promotion.  Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple email addresses, phone numbers, identities, registrations or logins; entries through a sweepstakes club or similar entity; or any other unauthorized method of entry will void all of Entrant’s entries and Entrant will be disqualified from the entire Promotion.  Submitting mass entries or entries generated by an automated program, script or macro, or the use of any other similar device, program or method to enter this Promotion is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

In the event of a dispute as to the identity of Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the social media account used to enter will be deemed to be Entrant.  A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.  The “authorized account holder” of an email address is the natural person assigned to that email address by a service provider or any other organization (business, educational institution, etc.) responsible for assigning accounts to that email address.  If the identity of the individual who actually participated in the Promotion cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected individual’s entry will be deemed ineligible.

Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, disqualify any individual it finds to be in violation of these Official Rules, tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion (including, but not limited to, tampering with websites, email addresses or phone numbers), or acting in a non-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner.

If any prize event or component thereof is cancelled or otherwise does not occur for any reason whatsoever, the portion of the prize associated with that event or component thereof will not be awarded, and any prize or value already awarded in connection with that event will be forfeited and no additional compensation will be provided to the winner.  If any prize event or component thereof is rescheduled or postponed, the portion of the prize associated with that event or component thereof will be awarded for the rescheduled date.

Any prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  A potential winner may be required to travel to a Sponsor Location of Sponsor’s choosing within thirty (30) miles of that potential winner’s home address to claim a prize.  If a winner is disqualified, not eligible or for any other reason cannot accept the prize as stated, then Sponsor may randomly select a new winner from the pool of eligible Entrants.

Only the number of each prize set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. In the event that technical or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor may award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing from among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.

  1. Winner Determination and Verification: The selection of a potential prize winner (each, a “Prize Drawing”) is within the sole discretion of Sponsor. Prize Drawings will take place according to the schedule outlined in Table 2.  For each Entry Period’s Prize Drawing, one (1) potential winner will be randomly drawn from the pool of all eligible entries received during that Entry Period.  Non-winning entries will not be rolled over to any remaining Promotion Entry Periods or Prize Drawings.  Winning entries will not be eligible to participate in any subsequent Entry Periods or Prize Drawings under this Promotion.  If any Prize Drawing is scheduled to take place on a holiday, the Prize Drawing will be conducted the following business day.

Potential winners are each subject to eligibility verification, on an ongoing basis, by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding.  An Entrant is not a winner of any prize, even if notified of being a winner and/or issued any item of value, unless and until Entrant’s eligibility has been, and continues to be verified to the satisfaction of Sponsor.

To be verified as eligible to receive a prize, each potential winner must fulfill all requirements and continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and not be disqualified for any reason.  Each potential winner will be notified by Facebook, Twitter or Instagram message (subject to Sponsor’s discretion).  If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted using the information provided or fails to respond to Sponsor’s attempt to notify them of selection within two (2) business days; if any prize or notification is returned as undeliverable or yields an error or undeliverable type “bounce back” email (regardless if the message is ultimately delivered to the recipient);; if a potential winner is unable or unwilling to accept the prize as stated; or if the potential winner cannot be verified as eligible for any other reason at any time before, during or after the Promotion Period, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize and an alternate will be selected.

In the event that an Entrant is disqualified for any reason, the foregoing process will be repeated until the prize is awarded or until three (3) attempts have been made to award the prize and each attempt has failed.  Sponsor will identify each potential winner and verify the potential winner’s eligibility.  If unable to verify the potential winner’s eligibility, Sponsor will select an alternative potential winner within a reasonable time thereafter.

The final winners will be determined, and the prizes will be awarded, within a reasonable time after the end of each Entry Period.  A winners list may be obtained by printing the requestor’s name, address, city, state and zip code on a 3×5″ postcard and mailing it to NTTA Public Affairs, Attn: 10th Anniversary of RSS Sweepstakes Promotion Winner List, 5900 W. Plano Parkway Plano, Texas 75026.  Limit one (1) request per person, per household.

In the event any provision is found invalid or unenforceable, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was never included. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules does not constitute a waiver of that provision.

Sponsor may cancel, suspend and/or modify the Promotion, or any part of it, if any mistake, clerical or typographical error, omission, fraud, technical failure, tampering, computer virus or other factor, technical or otherwise, beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control, impairs Sponsor’s ability to properly conduct the Promotion, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, subject to any applicable law or regulation.  In such event, Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, award any applicable prize(s) by random drawing from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the cancellation, suspension or modification of the Promotion.  Inclusion in such random drawing is Entrant’s exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights or obligations of Entrant or Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, no matter what jurisdiction, that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than as stated.
