SPONSOR:  The Sweepstakes is sponsored by AOL Inc., 770 Broadway, New York, NY 10003 (“Sponsor”).

AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES:  Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding.  Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.  

ENTRY PERIOD:  The Sweepstakes begins at 10:00 AM ET on January 24, 2017, and ends at 11:59 PM ET on February 23, 2017, or whenever the first 100 entrants sign-up for a new ONE by AOL: Mobile account, download the applicable SDK and provide 10,000 impressions as per the instructions, whichever comes first (the “Entry Period”).

ENTRY:  During the Entry Period, go to http://www.aolplatforms.com/app-developer-solutions and follow the instructions to submit your entry. Limit one (1) entry per app developer or mobile publisher during the Entry Period. The use of any agencies or automated software to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person.

DRAWING:  At the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor will select the names of two (2) Grand Prize Winners in a random drawing of all “eligible entries” received during the Entry Period. To be considered an “eligible entry” you must sign-up for a new ONE by AOL: Mobile account during the Entry Period, download the applicable SDK and provide 10,000 impressions.  The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received (if less than 100), or 1:100. Potential Winners will be contacted via the information they provided at the time of registration.

Requirements of the Potential Winners: Except where prohibited, the potential Grand Prize Winners may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the "Affidavit/Release") and IRS W-9 form within a specified time period to be determined by Sponsored. If the potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release and W-9 form within the required time period, an alternate entrant may be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received. Acceptance of a prize constitutes consent to use winner's name and likeness for editorial, advertising and publicity purposes without additional compensation, except where prohibited by law. In the event the potential winner of any prize is a Canadian resident, he/she will be required to correctly answer a time-limited mathematical question to be administered by email/mail to receive the prize.  

Prizes: Two (2) Grand Prize Winners will each receive a Parrot Bebop 2 drone.  Approximate Retail Value (ARV) of each prize is $549.99 USD.  Prizes are not transferable and no cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion.  The winners are responsible for any taxes and fees associated with receipt or use of a prize.  Any and all warranties and guarantees with respect to any prize element are subject to the respective manufacturer’s terms.

The (up to) 98 eligible entrants who were not selected as the Grand Prize Winners will receive AOL Swag Bags.

GENERAL CONDITIONS:  In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prizes via random drawing from among the eligible 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 Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.  Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  The Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.  In case of a dispute as to the owner of an entry, entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the username or email address from which the entry is made. The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a username or e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization.

RELEASE AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:  By participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release, defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Sweepstakes Entities from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, or telephone or network lines; (c) printing errors; (d) lost, late, postage-due, misdirected, or undeliverable mail; (e) errors in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; or (f) injury (including death) 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 of any prize.  Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Sponsor’s liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, and in no event shall the Sponsor be liable for attorney’s fees.  Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.  TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE PRIZES AND ALL ELEMENTS THEREOF ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. SPONSOR DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties. In such jurisdictions, some of the foregoing disclaimers may not apply to you insofar as they relate to implied warranties.

DISPUTES:  Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the Commonwealth of Virginia or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Virginia.
