Sponsor’s decisions on all matters concerning the Sweepstakes, including but not limited to eligibility determinations, are final and binding in all regards. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify any entry or entrant. Winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. Entry in the Sweepstakes constitutes your full acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor.

  1. How to Enter: You may enter the Sweepstakes via the internet by visiting the website https://www.shopsiswim.com, completing the designated entry form with your valid e-mail address and clicking on the “Submit” button (“Entry”). You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. By entering the Sweepstakes, you consent to being placed on a mailing list for promotional and other materials from Sponsor and Time, Inc.. You may opt out from receiving future messages after receiving e-mail messages from Sponsor and Time, Inc.

Normal internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service provider will apply. It is your responsibility to maintain your e-mail address, as submitted with your Entry, current in order for Sponsor to contact you in the event you are selected as a winner.

  1. Entry Requirements: Illegible, late, lost, incomplete, or garbled Entries are not eligible. Participants are limited to one (1) Entry per eligible person and per email address throughout the entire Sweepstakes Period regardless of the method of entry (regardless of whether a person has more than one (1) e-mail address or more than one (1) person uses the same e-mail address). Once you submit an Entry into one Monthly Entry Period, you will not be eligible for any other Monthly Entry Period. Any attempt to obtain more than one (1) Entry by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, or any other methods may void your Entries and you may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes. Any use of automated or programmed methods of effecting entry is prohibited. All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. To be eligible for each Monthly Entry Period, Sponsor must receive eligible entries by 11:59 P.M. PST on the last day of each Monthly Entry Period. Entries from previous Monthly Entry Periods will not be included in subsequent Monthly Entry Periods.

  2. Selection of Winner: One winner will be selected in a random drawing on or about the last day of each Monthly Entry Period (i.e., December 31, 2017, January 31, 2018, and February 28, 2018) from all eligible Entries received during such Monthly Entry Period. One potential prize winner will be selected for each Monthly Entry Period for a total of three (3) Sweepstakes winners. Odds of winning depend on the total number of Entries received during each Monthly Entry Period. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, or does not accept the prize, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, award or not award the prize to an alternate winner. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a winner based on an e-mail address, the winning entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at the time of entry. The authorized account holder is the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domains associated with the submitted e-mail addresses. Non-winning entries for each Monthly Entry Period drawing will not remain in the entry pool for subsequent drawings, if any; each Monthly Entry Period will have a brand new entry pool.

  3. Prize: Upon verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, Sponsor will award a total of three (3) prizes, one (1) per Monthly Entry Period. Each prize consists of one (1) SwimSpot electronic gift card in the amount of five hundred dollars ($500.00 USD), which may be used online only at www.swimspot.com or www.shopsiswim.com. The total approximate retail value (“ARV”) of all prizes to be awarded is $1,500. Any other costs, taxes, fees, and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specifically provided herein are the sole responsibility of the winner. Prize is awarded “AS IS.” Sponsor does not make or offer any warranty or guarantee, either express or implied (including, without limitation, quality, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) in connection with this Sweepstakes or any prize. Prize details and availability are subject to change, in which case, a prize of equal or greater value may be substituted at Sponsor’s sole discretion. No substitution, cash equivalent or transfer of prize is permitted except at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Prizes consist only of the items listed. The award of a prize may be subject to applicable withholding requirements and the winner will be required to submit his/her social security number or tax payer ID number to Sponsor in order to claim the prize. The winner may receive an IRS Form 1099 reflecting the actual final retail value of his/her prize. Any portion of a prize not accepted by a winner will be forfeited; Sponsor will not be responsible for any inability of winner to accept or use any portion of the prize for any reason.

  4. Winner Notification: Each Monthly Entry Period Sweepstakes winner will be notified on or about the last day of each Monthly Entry Period via the e-mail address provided by that winner to Sponsor on the Entry. The winner must respond to the notification within 72 hours of the e-mail being sent and may be required to verify his/her name, age, e-mail address, address and eligibility. The winner will be required to complete, sign, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release, which, unless otherwise prohibited by law, must be returned within 72 hours. At Sponsor’s discretion, the winner may be required to produce picture or some other form of proper identification to claim any prize. Disqualification, forfeiture of prizes, and the selection of an alternate winner by Sponsor may result from any of the following: (a) failure of a potential winner to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release as applicable within 72 hours of notification; (b) the return of a notification or prize as undeliverable; (c) ineligibility; (d) failure of a potential winner to respond to notification promptly after transmission; (e) failure of a potential winner to validly claim the prize; or (f) any other non-compliance with these Official Rules. In the event of prize forfeiture, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, award or not award the forfeited prize to an alternate winner.

  5.

  6. General Terms and Conditions: All federal, state, and local laws and regulations apply. Sponsor reserves the right to take such action as it deems necessary to enforce these Official Rules and ensure the fair operation of the Sweepstakes, including without limitation, barring and disqualifying entrants who do not comply with these Official Rules. If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned by any cause which, in the sole opinion of Sponsor, corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes and determine winners from Entries received prior to action taken, or as otherwise deemed fair and equitable by Sponsor. In no event will more prizes be awarded than are stated in these Official Rules. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision of these 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 and these Official Rules, these Official Rules will prevail, govern, and control, and the discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.

  7.
