All applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply.


By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to be bound by these official rules (“Official Rules”) and by the decisions of Sponsor in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes.


ENTRY PERIOD.


The Sweepstakes is a series of separate drawings that run monthly, beginning at 12:00:00 am PT on the first day of each month beginning February 1, 2019 and ending at 11:59:59 pm PT on the last day of each month until Sponsor discontinues the Sweepstakes (each period shall be considered an “Entry Period”). Each month is a separate Entry Period for a separate drawing. Sponsor’s computer is the official time keeping device for the Sweepstakes.


HOW TO ENTER.


NO PURCHASE NECESSARY AND NO ENTRY FEE, PAYMENT OR PROOF OF PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE.


You may use one of two methods to enter the Sweepstakes. The first method of entry requires you to own a voice assistant device (e.g. Amazon Alexa or Google Home) (“Device”) that is compatible with the conversational.ly plug-in (“Plug-In”), install the Plug-In, and use the Device with the Plug-In installed for at least five (5) days during the applicable Entry Period.


Entrant must be the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter the Sweepstakes. The “authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person to whom the e-mail address is assigned by an internet service provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. In the event of a discrepancy between the identity of the authorized account holder, the “winner,” and the entrant, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether the entry is valid or to declare the entry invalid and select an alternate winner.


Compliance with the entry requirements will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Submissions that violate, as determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, these entry requirements or do not meet the submission deadlines will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. In the event of any disputes relating to any entries, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify all entrants associated with the dispute.


Method 1: Use Device with Plug-In Installed


To participate in the Sweepstakes by using a Device, you must complete all the following steps:


Step 1: Install the Plug-In and complete all requested fields to register your information (including your name and e-mail address) and your Device with the Sponsor.


Step 2: Interact with your Device while the Plug-In is installed for at least five (5) days during the applicable Entry Period. For each day that the Plug-In logs at least one entry in your user history of an interaction with your Device, you will receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry, subject to the maximum limit of thirty five (35) entries per entrant per Entry Period, regardless of entry method(s) used.


Method 2: Alternative Method of Entry


To participate in the Sweepstakes without using a Device with a Plug-In installed, legibly hand print your full name, complete address (including zip code), telephone number, and e-mail address on a 3 ½” x 5” card and mail it, with proper postage affixed, to Conversational.ly, 1411 4th Ave Suite 1000, Seattle, WA 98101, Attn: Monthly Sweepstakes. Maximum one (1) entry card will be accepted per stamped outer mailing envelope.


You will receive five (5) entries for each completed entry card received during the applicable Entry Period, subject to the maximum limit of thirty five (35) entries per entrant per Entry Period, regardless of entry method(s) used.


Entries must be postmarked by the last day of the applicable Entry Period and received by the sixth day following the last day of the applicable Entry Period (“Postcard Deadline”). Postcards not received by the Postcard Deadline will be disqualified or, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, entered into the Sweepstakes drawing for the next Entry Period. The Sweepstakes Parties assume no responsibility for lost, late, incomplete, stolen, misdirected, illegible or postage-due entries or mail, all of which will be void. No mechanically reproduced entries permitted. All entries become the property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned.


ODDS OF WINNING.


Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.


SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION OF WINNERS.


On or about the seventh day following the end of the applicable Entry Period, 111 winners (“Winners”) will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period. Sponsor will notify the winners via the registered phone number or e-mail address within 7 days after the drawing.


Winners are subject to verification of eligibility, including verification of age and residency and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements of these Official Rules.


PRIZES.


For each Entry Period, one (1) grand prize Winner will win $1,000, ten (10) runner up Winners will each win $100, and one hundred (100) finalist Winners will win $10. Each entrant may win a maximum of one (1) prize per Sweepstakes drawing.


The total value of all prizes offered is $3,000.


Prizes will be distributed through PayPal. In order to accept a prize, each Winner must register for a free PayPal account and comply with all PayPal requirements, including the presentation of a major credit card. If the Winner cannot accept the prize via PayPal for any reason, the Winner forfeits the prize in its entirety and a substitute winner may be randomly selected from the remaining eligible entries for the applicable Entry Period.


The prizes are non-transferable. No prize substitution is permitted, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor.


As a condition of receiving a prize, each Winner must sign and return any documents requested by Sponsor, including an affidavit of eligibility and publicity/liability release (if requested). Failure to sign and return any requested documents by the specified return date will result in disqualification of the winner and the forfeiture of all interest in the prize. Any Winner who wins a total aggregate amount in a calendar year of $600 or more will be issued an IRS Form 1099 in the amount of the prize and must provide Sponsor with his/her valid Social Security Number or Taxpayer ID for tax reporting purposes.


Each Winner is solely responsible for all federal, state, local, or other applicable taxes associated with the acceptance and use of a prize. All costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specifically provided herein are the responsibility of each Winner.


If a Winner (i) is determined to be ineligible or otherwise disqualified by Sponsor, (ii) fails to respond to Sponsor’s first winner notification message within one (1) week of notification or after two (2) attempts (whichever occurs first), (iii) fails to provide valid PayPal information or execute any release or affidavit of eligibility required by Sponsor within one (1) week of receipt of initial notification regarding prize winning, the Winner will be disqualified and forfeit the prize in its entirety and the Sponsor will randomly select a substitute Winner from the remaining eligible entries for the applicable Entry Period.


If the number of available prizes in any Sweepstakes drawing exceeds the number of eligible entrants who submitted eligible entries during the applicable Entry Period, the remaining prizes will not be awarded and will remain the property of Sponsor.
