No mechanically or programmatically reproduced entries are permitted.  Sponsor will not verify receipt of entries for Entrants.  All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, illegible, or damaged entries.  By entering, each Entrant: (a) represents that he/she is at least eighteen (18) years of age and otherwise eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes; and (b) fully and unconditionally agrees to and accept these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and legally binding in all respects.  Any person who tampers with the entry process in any way will be disqualified.

WINNING/NOTIFICATION: There will be four (4) drawings held for this Sweepstakes, on or about: (a) August 7, 2014 (for Entry Period 1); (b) September 7, 2014 (for Entry Period 2); (c) October 7, 2014 (for Entry Period 3); and (d) November 7, 2014 (for Entry Period 4).  For each drawing, one (1) Prize Winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period. A total of four (4) Prize Winners will be selected in this Sweepstakes. Odds of being selected as a Prize Winner for any Entry Period are based upon the total number of eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period.  The random drawings and determination of the Prize Winners will be conducted by the Sponsor whose decisions are based upon their sole discretion and interpretation of these Official Rules and are final and binding in all respects.

The potential Prize Winners will be notified by the Sponsor by email following each of the random drawings and will be required to complete and return “Required Documents” within seven (7) business days as further described in the “PRIZE CLAIMS” section below.  Sponsor will make two (2) attempts to notify a potential Prize Winner by email.  In the event the Sponsor cannot reach a potential Prize Winner via email after two (2) attempts, or if it is determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, that a potential Prize Winner is not eligible in accordance with these Official Rules, then that potential Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Prize and an alternate Prize Winner will be selected at random from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period, and he/she will be notified as outlined above until one (1) Prize Winner is determined for each of the four (4) Entry Periods. 

PRIZES:  Each Prize Winner will receive the following Prize; (a) one (1), forty-two (42) count truck box of assorted Herr’s snacks, selected by the Prize Winner;  (b) one (1) Philadelphia Union team signed Jersey; and (c) one (1) Philadelphia Union team signed Soccer Ball.

Prizes are not transferable and may not be resold.  No Prize substitution or cash redemption of any Prize, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any element of any Prize with a prize of comparable or greater value if Prize should become unavailable.  No more than the number of Prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded.  All Prize Winners consent (and, except where prohibited, agree to sign any additional documents required by Sponsor to formalize, effect or perfect such consent) to Sponsor’s use of their names, likenesses (photograph and/or video), biographical information, and voices in advertising/publicity/trade without compensation, notice or approval; and, Prize Winners disclaim any ownership rights in the content of such advertising/publicity/trade material.

PRIZE CLAIMS: Except where prohibited by law, the potential Prize Winners must each sign and return to Sponsor within seven (7) business days of receipt, an Affidavit of Eligibility & Liability/Publicity Release (the “Release”) and an IRS Form W-9 in order to claim his/her Prize (collectively, the “Required Documents”).  If a potential Prize Winner fails to return the Required Documents within seven (7) business days of receiving it, potential Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Prize and another Prize Winner will be selected at random from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period. At the end of the tax year for which the Prize is awarded, each Prize Winner will be issued a Form 1099 equivalent to the retail value of the Prize, for income verification and tax purposes.  Prize Winners are advised to seek independent counsel regarding the tax implications of their Prize winnings.  Potential Prize Winners must report income to the IRS.  In the event it is deemed during the verification process that a potential Prize Winner does not have a unique, personal and valid social security number for Sponsor to report the tax liability associated with acceptance of the Prize, potential Prize Winner will be disqualified and another Prize Winner will be selected from among the remaining non-winning eligible entries received during the respective Entry Period.  Valid social security numbers will be determined by IRS requirements.  If it is determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, that a potential Prize Winner is not eligible in accordance with these Official Rules, the potential Prize Winner forfeits his/her right to the Prize and an alternate may be selected as outlined above.  In the event that a potential Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor shall have no liability or obligation to such individual.
