By entering, entrants agree to be bound by the decisions of the judges, Sponsor and these Official Rules and to comply with all federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

3. Winner Selection & Prizes.

One (1) Winner will be selected, namely, such eligible individual to submit the first correct Entry. The Winner will receive the watch worn by Ryan Follesé in the official music video for “Hung Up”. Winners will be notified by email and if a winner cannot be contacted within one (1) calendar day of first notification attempt, the prize will be forfeited and an alternative winner may be selected from all remaining eligible entries. By entering the Contest, entrants fully and unconditionally agree to be bound by these rules and the decisions of the judges, which will be final and binding in all matters relating to the Contest.

Each Winner and Winner’s guest must be at least thirteen (13) years of age.

Approximate retail value of all prizes is One Hundred Dollars ($100.00). The approximate retail value of the prizes represents Sponsor’s good faith determination.

If the actual value of the prizes turns out to be less than the stated approximate retail value, the difference will not be awarded in cash.

Each Winner will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release within two (2) calendar days of prize notification. If the winner rejects his/her prize or in the event of noncompliance with these Contest rules and requirements, such prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected from all remaining eligible entries.

Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a comparable prize of like or greater value for any prize, or to pay Winner a cash equivalent (the value of which shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), for any reason.

(d) If, for reasons beyond the control of Sponsor (including, but not limited to, tampering or computer virus infection), the Contest is not capable of running as originally planned, Sponsor, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to cancel or modify the Contest, without liability.
