4. How to Enter: To participate, you will need to have an Instagram account.  Creating an Instagram account is free but is subject to Instagram’s terms of use:  https://help.instagram.com/581066165581870Posting on Instagram requires a mobile device and therefore message and data rates may apply. If entering via a mobile device and using your wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your wireless carrier may apply.  Your account settings must be set to "unprotected" and/or "public" in order for your comments/posts to be viewable by Sponsor and its agents. If you comment/post using your wireless phone, message and data rates may apply. Please consult your wireless-service provider regarding its pricing plans. 

During the Promotion Period, take the following actions on Instagram: 

(a)Follow @motrin and @ubykotex;

(b)find Sponsor’s weekly post about this Sweepstakes (“Post”); and

(c)like the Post and comment on it by “@ mentioning” three (3) friends or family members with whom you have a personal relationship.

You need not include any additional content in your comment.  However, if you choose to include additional content, it must be your original work and must not be indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, libelous, contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, disparage Sponsor, or any other person or party, or contain material that is unlawful in any way. 

You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Weekly Entry Period drawing and the Grand Prize drawing for your qualified comment. Sponsor may disqualify any comment if it determines that it finds it to be unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion. Released Parties (as defined in Section 7, below) are not responsible for lost, late, unreceived, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, or delayed comments or failure to receive any comment due to limitations of third-party social network platforms all of which will be void. 

Limit: You may enter one (1) time per Weekly Entry Period during the Promotion Period.  Each qualified comment must be unique by “@ mentioning” three (3) different friends and family members to qualify as an entry. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Instagram account.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different Instagram accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the Instagram account used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses used to create the Instagram account. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

5. Sponsor’s Use of Entries: Commenting on Sponsor’s Post constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such comments in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, entrant will sign any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the comment. 

6. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes.  Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during each applicable Weekly Entry Period, on or around the dates listed in Section 3 above.  Non-winning entries will not be included in subsequent Weekly Entry Period drawings.  The Grand Prize winner will be selected on or about September 16, 2019.  Each potential winner will be notified by @motrin via Message Direct or reply comment and will be required to provide his/her name, email address, mailing address and date of birth to confirm eligibility and for prize fulfillment purposes within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent into order to claim the prize. Each potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and, where not prohibited, a Publicity Release ("Declaration") which must be received by Administrator within five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize.  If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information, within the required time period, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits his/her prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. 

7. Prizes: ONE (1) GRAND PRIZE: A $5,000 shopping spree, awarded as a Visa® Prepaid Card.  Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): $5,000.

Prizes are non-transferable and no substitution will be made except as provided herein at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason.  Winners are responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use.  Odds of winning a First Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Entry Period; odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.  Limit:  one (1) First Prize and one (1) Grand Prize per person.  Total ARV of all prizes: $10,000.

10. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  In such event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein.  Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.  Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

11. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (5) late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; or (6) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.  If for any reason an entrant's entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, not received, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.  In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
