Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple or different accounts, identities, registrations, and logins, or any other methods will void such Entries and that Entrant may be disqualified, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

Each potential winner (individually, a “Winner,” and collectively, the “Winners”) may be required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder associated with the Entry. It is solely your responsibility to notify Sponsor in writing if you change your Facebook Account. Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same Account.

7.        Selection, Notification, and Announcement of Winners

Sponsor will review all Entries for compliance with these Rules. At the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period, on or about July 28, 2019, Sponsor will select, in a random drawing, one potential Winner for the prize (the “Prize”) described in Section 8 of these Rules, from all eligible Entries.

ODDS OF WINNING depend on the number of eligible Entries received.

The potential Winners will be notified on or about July 29, 2019 via email, phone, or mail, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor will not be liable for any potential Prize-winning notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by any potential Winner for any reason.

·         fails to comply with these Rules or the Terms of Use, such potential Winner will forfeit their Prize and the Sponsor may select an alternate Winner from the remaining eligible Entries based on the Judging Criteria in Section 8.

The final results and winning Entries will be announced on the Renegade Facebook Page by July 31, 2019.

Sponsor may seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor may modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play, or feasibility of the Sweepstakes as contemplated in these Rules. In the event an insufficient number of eligible Entries are received or Sponsor is prevented from awarding Prizes or continuing the Sweepstakes as contemplated in these Rules by any event beyond its control (“Force Majeure Event”), including fire, flood, natural or artificial epidemic of health of other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared), or any federal state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, then Sponsor will have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the Winners from all eligible, non-suspect Entries received as of the date of the Force Majeure Event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such selection process will be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of Prizes described in these Rules will be awarded.

The parties will cooperate to select a mediator, but if unable to do so will use JAMS for the mediation process and selection from JAMS’ panel of neutrals. The parties will participate in the mediation in good faith, and will share its mutual costs equally, and the parties’ respective out-of-pocket costs individually.
