5. ENTRIES: This Sweepstakes begins when the giveaway content is posted on the TRU Ball®/AXCEL® Archery Facebook page account and ends when specified in the post (the “Sweepstakes Period”). All times are according to Sponsor’s time clock. During the Sweepstakes Period, the Sponsor will make one or more posts using the TRU Ball®/AXCEL® Archery Facebook and Instagram account that asks potential entrants to like the TRU Ball®/AXCEL® Archery Facebook and Instagram page, like the giveaway posts, as well as tag someone in the comments to enter this Sweepstakes during the Sweepstakes Period using your personal Facebook account to like the TRU Ball®/AXCEL® Archery Facebook page and like a Sponsor Post. Any entry containing language the Sponsor in its sole discretion deems inappropriate will be deleted and the entrant who submitted such Entry will be disqualified. Only one Facebook Entry and one Instagram entry per eligible entrant is allowed during the Sweepstakes Period. This is equal to two total entries. No more than two entries will be allowed by any participant. All Entries must be received during the Sweepstakes Period. Entries or extra entry may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. By entering, entrants agree to comply with these Official Rules, including all eligibility requirements. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of all entrants. 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. Sponsor and its agents are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Entries, for technical failures of any kind, or any human error which may occur in the receipt or processing of the Entries. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the scheduling of the Sweepstakes without prior notification. All Entries become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
6. SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: On or about the ending time of the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor or its designee, the judge of the Sweepstakes, whose decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes, will randomly draw one (1) Entry from among all eligible Entries received. That one (1) Entry drawn will be used to determine the potential winner of a Prize (the “Potential Winners”). The Potential Winner will be eligible to win a Prize, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. The Potential Winner will be notified by Facebook or Instagram direct message and/or a comment on the giveaway post using the handle provided in the Potential Winner’s Entry or by a public post to the TRU Ball®/AXCEL® Archery Facebook page to confirm the Potential Winner’s full name, date of birth, place of residence and a mailing address (“Eligibility and Contact Information”) and the Potential Winner must respond by email within five (5) calendar days of the date of the Prize Notification (the “Deadline”) with Potential Winner’s Eligibility and Contact Information. If Sponsor does not receive a Potential Winner’s response to the Prize Notification by the Deadline, such Potential Winner will be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner will be selected from all remaining eligible Entries. Sponsor is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of any Potential Winner to receive their Prize Notification or for Sponsor to receive any Potential Winner’s response. The inability of Sponsor to contact a Potential Winner, the failure of a Potential Winner to contact Sponsor in a timely manner, the inability of a Potential Winner to accept or receive a Prize for any reason, the return of any Prize as undeliverable, and/or the non-acceptance by a Potential Winner of any Prize for any reason will result in disqualification of such Potential Winner, and alternate Potential Winners will be selected randomly from all remaining eligible Entries received until a Winner is selected or no remaining eligible Entries remain. Each Potential Winner who complies with all of the foregoing requirements and all other conditions herein and ultimately receives a Prize is known as a “Winner”. Once an entrant is selected as a Potential Winner, such entrant will not be eligible for any subsequent drawings.

No cash redemption or prize substitution will be allowed, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute cash value or another prize it believes is of equal or greater value.
