Only one (1) registration per person will be accepted. Entry/registration must be completely filled out to be considered eligible. Entries generated by a script, computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic or other automated means are void and may be disqualified. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, damaged, destroyed, forged, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. All materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an online entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the entry for the domain associated with the submitted address provided that person is eligible. Winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Authorized account holder is defined as the person assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses. The Released Parties are not responsible for electronic communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, or insufficient space in entrant's e-mail account to receive e-mail messages. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. For purposes of this sweepstakes, an on-line entry is “received” when the web site’s servers record the entry information. Proof of sending (such as an automated computer receipt confirming entry or “thanks for entering” message) does not constitute proof of actual receipt of an entry for purposes of this sweepstakes. Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. Those who do not follow all of the instructions, provide the required information in their entry form, or abide by these Official Rules or other instructions of Sponsor may be disqualified.

(4) One (1) winner will be identified by the Cavaliers who will be selected at random. The Cavaliers will have complete discretion over interpretation of the Official Rules, of administration of the sweepstakes, and of selection of the winners. Decisions of the Cavaliers as to the selection of the winners will be final. Winner will be notified by Cavaliers representative via mail, e-mail or phone (in the Cavaliers sole and absolute discretion) within seven (7) days of the end of the sweepstakes. The Released Parties are not responsible for false, incorrect, changed, incomplete or illegible contact information. In the event a winner cannot be contacted or declines the prize for any reason, another winner will be selected at random. The Released Parties do not assume any responsibility for incorrect or inaccurate capture of entry information, technical malfunctions, human or technical error, seeding or printing errors, viruses, lost/delayed/garbled data or transmissions, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, or failures of any telephone or computer line or network, computer equipment, software or any combination thereof. Entry materials that have been tampered with or altered are void. If, in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ opinion, this sweepstakes is compromised or becomes technically corrupted in any way, electronically or otherwise, the Cleveland Cavaliers reserve the right to cancel, terminate, or suspend the sweepstakes (or the online portion thereof, if applicable) and, in such event, to select a winner for the prize by randomly drawing from among all valid entries received, up to such time of cancellation, termination, or suspension, or solely from the mailed entries. Persons found tampering with or abusing any aspect of this sweepstakes, or whom the Cavaliers believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption or damage may be disqualified. Additionally, any attempt to cheat the sweepstakes, as determined at the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may result in immediate disqualification of the entrant, as well as other possible consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future sweepstakes.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will not replace any lost or stolen prizes. All prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined in Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion.

By participating in this sweepstakes, entrants and prize winners agree to release, defend, hold harmless and indemnify the Released Parties from and against any and all losses, liability, damages or causes of action of any kind (however named or described), with respect to or arising out of the sweepstakes, including, but not limited to, (i) entrant’s participation in the sweepstakes; (ii) travel to or from any sweepstakes-related activity; or (iii) or resulting directly or indirectly, from the receipt, acceptance, possession, use or misuse of any prize awarded in connection with the sweepstakes or participation in this sweepstakes, including, without limitation, personal injury, death and/or property damage, as well as claims based on publicity rights, defamation and/or invasion of privacy.

(11) In consideration for being awarded a prize, each winner hereby agrees and consents, without further authorization, compensation or remuneration of any kind, to the use of winner’s name, voice, biographical information and/or likeness in any and all advertising, promotions and other publicity conducted by the Released Parties in any media and by all manners (now and hereafter known) in perpetuity, except where prohibited by law.

(12) As a condition and prior to being awarded a prize, potential winners and his/her companions/guests, if applicable, may be asked to execute an affidavit (“Affidavit”) certifying the winner’s age, eligibility and re-affirming the release of the Released Parties from any and all liability arising from, among other things: (i) participation in the Sweepstakes; (ii) acceptance of the prizes awarded therein; and (iii) the administration of the sweepstakes and distribution of the prizes awarded therein within the time period specified at notification before being eligible to receive his or her prize. If any potential prize winner fails or refuses to sign and return such Affidavit (if required) within the time period required by Sponsor or if the prize or prize notification is returned as rejected, faulty, unclaimed or returned as undeliverable to such potential prize winner, such potential prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate may be selected. Non-compliance shall result in disqualification and award of the prize to an alternate winner. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the prize, or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. The Released Parties are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential winners.

(13) All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules or the rights and obligations of entrants, Sponsor or the Released Parties in connection with the sweepstakes will be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Ohio, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions that would cause the application of any other state’s laws.

(14) The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules or the Affidavit will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules or the Affidavit is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules will not constitute a waiver of that provision. In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any sweepstakes-related materials, privacy policy or terms of use on the web site and/or the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control and the discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
