The 2015 Le Creuset Picnic Sweepstakes>
OFFICIAL RULES FOR ENTRY ON THE LE CREUSET WEBSITE
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Purchase will not increase your chances of winning.
Eligibility: This sweepstakes promotion (“Promotion”) is hosted only for visitors of Le Creuset’s website. Entrants must be legal residents of the 50 United States or District of Columbia and be 18 years of age or older. The Promotion is void where prohibited. All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. Le Creuset of America, Inc. (“Sponsor”), and its subsidiaries, affiliated companies, dealers, wholesalers, advertising and promotion agencies, webmasters/suppliers, and their respective employees, officers, and directors, and their respective immediate family members (spouse, parents, siblings, children) or household members (whether or not related) are ineligible. By participating you agree to these terms and conditions governing the Promotion (these “Official Rules”).
Online Promotion: This Promotion is run online through Sponsor’s website. The Promotion is distinct from all other promotions offered by Sponsor. The Sponsor from time to time may offer prizes, including prizes similar in nature to the prize awarded in this Promotion, through similar promotions run online or inside various retail locations, however, those other promotions are unique, limited to the participants in those particular promotions, and governed by official rules particular to those promotions. Because such other promotions are separate from this Promotion, your entry in this Promotion does not enter you in any other promotion held online or at a local retail location (and vice versa).
Entry Period: Sponsor will accept entries between May 11, 2015, from 12:00 AM ET and June 14, 2015, until 11:59 PM ET Enter Online: To enter, during the Entry Period, access the website at www.lecreuset/contests, click on the Promotion banner or other similar link to access the Promotion page, and then follow the directions to enter. When at the entry prompt on Sponsor’s website, you will need to enter your name, e-mail address, and other requested registration information; agree to the terms and conditions of these Official Rules; and click “Register.” Limit one entry per person during the Promotion. The Internet entries eligible for the drawing will be those entries received and recorded by Sponsor’s computer (the official Promotion time keeping device) during the Entry Period. No robotic, programmed, script, macro or other automated entries (collectively “automated entries”) are allowed. Automated entries, or, multiple entries in a day by the same person/email address, or entries that have been tampered with will result in disqualification of all such entries. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Prize Details/Odds: There will be one prize awarded to one random winner (the “Prize Winner”) in a drawing held on or about June 15, 2015 by random selection from among all eligible Promotion entries received on Sponsor’s website during the Entry Period. The prize awarded to the Prize Winner will be a Le Creuset Ultimate Picnic Basket valued at approximately $375. Sponsor reserves the right to replace the prize with another of similar value. The prize is non-transferable and no substitutions or cash redemptions will be made. If the Prize Winner cannot accept the prize as stated, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate Prize Winner if circumstances permit. Odds of winning a prize in the Promotion depend on the number of eligible entries as of the drawing and are not increased by purchasing Sponsor’s products.
Winner Verification: The drawing and awarding of each prize will be conducted by the Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to the Promotion. Potential winners will be contacted via e-mail or mail on or about June 15, 2015 and instructed as to how to claim his or her prize. If any potential winner does not respond or cannot be reached within three (3) calendar days from the first notification attempt, or if such person fails to sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and where lawful, a Publicity Release (if required by Sponsor), then such person shall be disqualified and forfeit the prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the Sponsor administrator may select one alternate winner in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, and a new winner will be chosen if time permits. If the one alternate potential winner of a prize is disqualified, no further drawings will take place and that prize will not be awarded. As a condition to being awarded a prize, potential winners may be required to sign and return to Sponsor, an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and where lawful, a Publicity Release. Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion.
