Entrants will need to include their age, physical mailing address, and phone number. Only one entry per week is allowed through the e-mail entry method per person.
Entries will not be acknowledged regardless of entry method used. Garmin and its affiliates assume no responsibility for any lost entries or any computer, internet, or technical malfunctions that might occur during the entry process. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service will apply.
ENTRY LIMITATIONS: Entries using automated means to generate entries or otherwise participate are not eligible. Use of any automated system to enter as determined by Garmin in its sole judgment is prohibited and will result in disqualification at Garmin’s sole discretion. Additionally, anyone found to use multiple e-mail accounts to enter in excess of one time per week through the e-mail entry method will be disqualified from all participation in the Sweepstakes. ALL ELIGIBLE ENTRIES WILL BE ENTERED INTO THE SWEEPSTAKES FOR THE APPLICABLE WEEK OF THE SWEEPSTAKES TERM. Entries by any method other than set forth in Section 5 are void. Garmin is not responsible for entries that it does not receive for any reason, or for entries that it receives but are ineligible under these Official Rules. Garmin will automatically disqualify: (1) any incomplete or illegible entry; and (2) any entries received that are in excess of the entry limit described above for e-mail entries.
WEEKLY PRIZE: One eTrex 30 will be awarded for each calendar week of the Sweepstakes Term. Limit 1 potential prize per entrant. If a person is selected as the random winner of the weekly eTrex 30 prize, then that person will be ineligible for future drawings during the Sweepstakes Term. Each eTrex 30 has an approximate retail value (“ARV”) of $299.99. The ARV of electronic prizes is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded. Each Prize is nontransferable and non-refundable and must be accepted as awarded. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by Garmin, who reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason as determined by Garmin in its sole discretion. Winners are responsible for any taxes associated with receipt of the Prize.
GROUP PRIZE: At the time of entry, each entrant will be given the opportunity to register such entrant’s geocaching club, group or organization to be eligible to win at the end of the Sweepstakes Term a team prize of 10 Chirps and 10 BirdsEye subscriptions (the “Group Prize”). The ARV of the Group Prize is $529.80.
DRAWING: The potential winner of each weekly Prize will be chosen in a random drawing from the pool of valid entries for a given week within two business days following the end of each calendar week during the Sweepstakes Term. Each calendar week runs from 12:00 a.m. on Monday to 11:59 p.m. on the following Sunday. The potential winner of the Group Prize will be chosen in a random drawing from the pool of valid entries within two business days following the end of the Sweepstakes Term. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received per week for the weekly Prize and for the Sweepstakes Term for the Group Prize. The random drawings will be conducted by one or more employees of Garmin or an independent fulfillment entity.
NOTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WINNER: Garmin will attempt to notify the potential winner by phone, e-mail, and/or written mail within 5 business days of the drawing. If a winner of a Prize cannot be located or does not respond within 5 business days of contact from Garmin, the Prize may be forfeited and an alternate potential winner will be drawn from the pool of remaining valid entries for the week in question for the weekly Prize and for the Sweepstakes Term for the Group Prize. Garmin and its affiliates, or their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents, will not be liable for unsuccessful efforts to notify a winner.
REQUIREMENTS OF THE POTENTIAL WINNER: Except where prohibited by law, the potential winner(s) will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility (the “Affidavit”) within 5 days of being notified. If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit postmarked within the required time period, an alternate entrant may be selected in his/her place from all of the remaining valid entries received for the week in question for the weekly Prize and for the Sweepstakes Term for the Group Prize. If the potential winner declines the prize, does not respond to the prize notification, fails to claim the prize, is unavailable for prize fulfillment, fails to abide by the Official Rules, or is ineligible, Garmin may select an alternate winner from all remaining valid entries received for the week in question for the weekly Prize and for the Sweepstakes Term for the Group Prize.
