NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
These are the Official Rules for the Spring Bloom Contest Contest (the “Contest”) sponsored by Free People (“Sponsor”). By entering the Contest, you agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding. The Contest begins on March 26, 2012 12:00 AM PST and ends on April 23, 2012 12:00 AM PST (“Contest Period”).
Entrants must be 13 years of age or older. If you are under 13 or the age of majority in your state of residence you must obtain consent from your parent/guardian to enter the Contest. By entering into the Contest you confirm that you have this consent.
To enter, you need to log onto www.chictopia.com. If you do not already have a Chictopia.com personal profile (“Profile”), you will need to create one. Once your Profile has been set up, you need to upload a Qualifying Photo (as defined below) onto the Spring Bloom Contest contest at www.chictopia.com (“Webpage”). A photo will be a “Qualifying Photo” if it has been tagged with "Spring Bloom", the designated style tag specified for this contest, as the style from the Style dropdown menu during upload. This is required of users wishing to enter the contest. Photos tagged with this style will appear on the contest page seen here: http://www.chictopia.com/contest/Spring-Bloom-Contest. The entry must also include any additional content requirements for the Contest as described by Sponsor. Entries not containing Qualifying Photos will be discounted from the Contest.
Entries are limited to one per Profile. Late or corrupt entries and entries that contain obscene, defamatory or otherwise inappropriate content as deemed by Chictopia and the Sponsor will not be accepted. No responsibility can be accepted for Entries not submitted or not received due to a technical default. Entries must not be submitted through agencies or third parties. In the event of a dispute in connection with the identity of the individual who submitted an Entry, the Entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the Profile. The authorized account holder is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to a Profile by Chictopia.
All Qualifying Photos submitted must be of the authorized account holder – that is the person whose email is registered to the account - and either (a) your own work or (b) be submitted with the consent of their creator. Qualifying Photos must not have won a prize in any other similar Contest. It is your responsibility to ensure that any Qualifying Photos submitted do not infringe the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party or any laws.
Sponsor reserves the right to choose the winners in its absolute discretion. The winnners will be chosen based on how accurately each entry adheres to the guidelines and entry criteria laid out by the Sponsor. The winners will be notified by Sponsor by phone within two weeks of the closing date. Sponsor’s decision will be final. There will only be 3 winners.
There are 3 prizes.
1st prize: $500 Free People Gift Card
2nd prize: $100 Free People Gift Card
3rd prize: $100 Free People Gift Card.
The Prizes are non transferable, non refundable and non negotiable. There is no cash alternative. Income and other taxes, if any, on the value of the Prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. The Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any of the prizes stated as needed or is necessary.
Failure of the winner to claim his or her Prize within 72 hours when notified by Chictopia's messaging system that they are the winner or failure to comply with any term or condition of these Official Rules, will result in disqualification, the forfeiture of his or her interest in the Prize, and the award of the Prize to a substitute drawing winner to be randomly selected from all remaining eligible entries at the end of the Contest Period. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any Prize with an equivalent one of its choosing which has the same or greater value than the original Prize in the event of circumstances outside of its control.
Prizes will be delivered to winners within two weeks of winners claiming their Prize.
If you are a winner of a Prize:
a) The receipt by you of the Prize is conditional upon you complying with any and all applicable laws, rules and regulations including, without limitation, these Official Rules;
b) You acknowledge and agree that neither Sponsor, nor Chictopia, nor any of their affiliated companies and promotional and advertising agencies, nor any of their respective employees, agents or subcontractors shall have any liability to you whatsoever in connection with your taking or use of the Prize, or involvement in any Prize-related travel or activity (to the fullest extent permitted by law); and
c) You acknowledge and agree that Sponsor makes no warranty, express or implied, regarding the Prize, and that Sponsor expressly disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
By entering the Contest each winner (except where prohibited by law and where the winner is a resident of the state of Tennessee), grants permission for Sponsor and Chictopia to use their name, address (city and state/province) and/or likeness for trade purposes without further compensation, worldwide and in perpetuity, in any and all forms of media, now known and hereafter devised, including without limitation the Internet.
By entering the Contest you agree that the data submitted by you can be used by Sponsor to contact you via email for permission to communicate with you thereafter. We will not share your details with third parties for marketing purposes.
Sponsor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into relating to the result of the Contest. In the event the Contest is terminated prior to the stated end date, Sponsor reserves the right, but has no obligation, to award the Prize in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received as of the date of termination.
