The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
An eligible Submission enters you in the Contest drawing. Proof of sending a Submission does not constitute proof of receipt.

Entrants consent to the Sponsor doing or omitting to do any act that would otherwise infringe the Entrant’s “moral rights” in their Entries. Display or publication of any Entry on Sponsor’s designees’ website does not indicate the Entrant will be selected as a winner. Sponsor and its designees will not be required to pay any additional consideration or seek any additional approval in connection with the use of any Entry or portion of any Entry, as contemplated by these Official Rules. Additionally, except where prohibited by law, by entering, each Entrant grants to Sponsor and its designees the unrestricted right to use all statements made in connection with the Contest, and pictures or likenesses of such Entry.
