The Podcast Review Sweepstakes (the “Contest”) is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry. The Contest is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
If you are an international participant and are chosen as the winner of a physical prize (e.g. a book), you may be responsible for the cost of international shipping, and in addition you are governed by the specific laws of your own territory and may not be able to accept the prize based on your territory’s laws and regulations. In addition, the international winner would be responsible for any tariffs, customs fees, duty or taxes in addition to shipping costs.
The Contest is sponsored by Jeffrey and Hannah Wachs dba The TV Museum Podcast (“Sponsor”).
3. Agreement to Official Rules
Participation in the Contest constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Contest Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon being compliant with these Contest Rules and fulfilling all other requirements set forth herein.
4. Contest Period
The Contest begins on Sunday, March 25, 2018 and ends on Thursday, April 5, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time (the “Contest Period”). Entries that are submitted after the Contest Period will be disqualified.
5. How to Enter
First, leave a bonafide review (i.e., not just two words like "Great podcast" -- put a little thought into it!) for the TV Museum Podcast on Apple Podcasts/iTunes during the contest Period. You can do this by clicking HERE to open Apple Podcasts/iTunes and then clicking on the REVIEW tab or button.
Then, just send an email to TVMUSEUMPODCAST@GMAIL.COM with the subject line "Sweepstakes" and your Apple Podcast ID/nickname to verify you left the review. Limit one (1) entry per person, per Apple Podcasts ID for the duration of the Contest Period. Entries received from any person, e-mail address, or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
That's all it takes!
6. Prize Drawing
On or about April 7, 2018, the Sponsor will select a winner randomly. The prize winner shall be determined from among all eligible entries received from entrants who leave an honest review of The TV Museum Podcast in Apple Podcasts (short and generic entries such as “Awesome!” and “Love this podcast!” that do not demonstrate you have listened to the show will be disqualified).
The odds of being selected depend on the number of entries received. The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via email within 48 hours of the drawing. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.
7. Winner Notification
The potential winners will be notified by email. If a potential winner cannot be contacted within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to fulfill any other requirements imposed on winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Contest Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Winners hereby grants Sponsor the right to publicize the winner’s name. 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. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 1-4 weeks after the conclusion of the Contest.
9. General Conditions
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Contest is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm, unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the event the Contest is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Contest to address the impairment and then resume the Contest in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Contest Rules or (b) terminate the Contest and, in the event of termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment. The 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 Contest or to be acting in violation of these Contest Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages (including attorney’s fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Contest Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
