3. To Enter. There are two ways to enter: 1) Fully complete the online survey and submit with your required personal information and you will be automatically entered into the Sweepstakes; 2) If you wish to enter the Sweepstakes without completing the survey, all you do is mail in your name, address, year of birth, the end date of the Sweepstakes Period, and the Sweepstakes prize, so that Sponsor can notify you if you are a winner and verify your eligibility.  If you are below 18 (between 13 and 17 years old), please provide parental contact information.  Mail-in entries should be addressed to: Safecount, Contests, 11 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10010.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO COMPLETE THE SWEEPSTAKES SURVEY TO ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES.  COMPLETION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES SURVEY WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING WITHOUT COMPLETING THE SWEEPSTAKES SURVEY (INCLUDING ENTRY BY MAIL-IN) ARE THE SAME AS THE CHANCES OF SOMEONE WHO COMPLETES THE SWEEPSTAKES SURVEY.  Your mail-in entry must be post-marked on or prior to the last day of the Sweepstakes Period for the identified Sweepstakes and received by Safecount not later than within 10 days after such date.  Mail-in Entries have the same chance of winning as Internet Entries.  Automated or computer generated entries or mechanical reproductions are prohibited, and any use of automated devices or mechanical reproductions will cause disqualification. The end date of the Sweepstakes Period and the Sweepstakes prize are listed on the first page of the Sweepstakes Survey.  LIMIT: ONE ENTRY (PER SWEEPSTAKES) PER PERSON, HOUSEHOLD, FAMILY AND/OR E-MAIL ADDRESS.  Sponsor and its advertising and promotions agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, illegible, mutilated, inaccurate, misdirected, stolen or postage due entries or mail, or for any problems of any kind whether mechanical, human or electronic, including, but not limited to, computer, telephone, cable, network, satellite, electronic or Internet hardware or software malfunctions, failures, connections, availability or garbled or jumbled transmissions, or service provider/Internet/web site/use net accessibility or availability, traffic congestion, or unauthorized human intervention. Sponsor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any sweepstakes in the event of any such problem. Sweepstakes entries are the property of Sponsor.  E-MAIL CHANGE OF ADDRESS POLICY: It is your sole responsibility to notify Sponsor in writing if you change your e-mail address. (To do so: write to: info@safecount.net).

4. Prizes.

One (1) winner per Entry Period will receive a check in the amount of $1,000. Arv. of all prizes for Sweepstakes is $12,000. If the prize is not claimed within 30 days after notification is sent, the prize will be forfeited and  may not be awarded in the sole discretion of Safecount.  Federal, state and local taxes are the responsibility of the winner.  If by reason of any error (relating to electronic transmission, technical or human errors or otherwise), more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in the applicable Sweepstakes Survey, all persons making purportedly valid claims will be included in a random drawing for the number of prizes as stated.

5. Drawing; Odds of Winning:

Prize winners will be selected in a random drawing from all entries received by the applicable deadlines.  Drawings will be held no later than 11 days after the Entry Period end date.  Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received in that Entry Period.  

6. Awarding of Prizes.

Each winner will be notified by e-mail (the "Notification") within 15 days of the drawing.  Winners without an email address will be notified via postal mail at the address provided in their entries.  Winners will be required to complete a registration form, which will include an online Affidavit of Eligibility and, where lawful, a Liability/Publicity Release (Tennessee residents need not complete and return publicity release).  Sponsor may require each winner to provide proof that he or she is the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter the Sweepstakes.  In the event of a dispute regarding an online submission, the entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder.  "Authorized account holder" means the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or organization (e.g., business, educational, institutional) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with such e-mail address. By completing the affidavit and release, the winners (except Tennessee residents) grant permission to the use of their names and addresses for advertising and promotional purposes for this and similar promotions without additional compensation unless required by law.  Prizes will be awarded within 30 days after receipt of all online registration forms. Prizes are not transferable. Non-compliance with these Official Rules or Terms of Service or undeliverable notification may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.
