2. ELIGIBILITY: Promotion open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) states of the United States and Washington, D.C. who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry (and, if a minor in the entrant’s state of residence, entrant must have obtained the permission of a parent or guardian to enter). Void where prohibited. Employees of Sponsor and its or their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, franchisees, advertising and promotion agencies and prize providers (“Promotion Entities”), and their immediate family members and/or those living in the same household of each, whether related or not, are not eligible to enter or win. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of winners.
3. SELECTION OF WINNERS: One winner will be selected in each of five (5) random weekly drawings (each a “Weekly Drawing”) from among all eligible entries combined from all methods of entry received for each weekly drawing (each an “Entry Period”). Each Entry Period begins on Monday at 12:00 a.m. ET and ends on Thursday at 11:59:59 p.m. ET in accordance with the following:
|Weekly Drawing Entry Periods (each an “Entry Period”)|

For the avoidance of doubt, non-winning entries will not be retained for inclusion in subsequent Weekly Drawing(s).
Each drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding. Each drawing will take place on or about the Friday of each week immediately following the end of each Entry Period.
In all cases, provided that the content of the comment is in compliance with these Official Rules (including Rule 1, “How To Enter”), the content of the comment will NOT be taken into account in the winner selection process.
All potential prize winners will be notified by direct message (i.e., private message) on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, according to entrant’s method of entry.
IT IS THE ENTRANT’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO ASSURE THAT HIS/HER PRIVACY SETTINGS ARE CONFIGURED SO AS TO ACCEPT PUBLIC DIRECT MESSAGES FROM SPONSOR. TO THIS END, IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED THAT YOU FOLLOW THE OFFICIAL JAY RUDERMAN PAGES/ACCOUNTS ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM IN CASE YOU ARE SELECTED AS A POTENTIAL WINNER.
Response to notification is required within forty-eight (48) hours from the time of first notification (i.e., transmission of direct message). As indicated above, such time will be kept by Sponsor. Such response must include additional contact information as requested (e.g., name, full mailing address and e-mail address) for prize acceptance and fulfillment. In addition, potential winner may be required to attest to full compliance with these Official Rules.
AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. A RESPONSE BY JAY RUDERMAN ACCOUNT/PAGE TO A COMMENT/POST DOES NOT CONSTITUTE NOTIFICATION OF BEING SELECTED AS A PRIZE WINNER.
In the event a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to respond within the indicated time period, his/her prize notification (i.e. direct message) is returned as undeliverable, or he/she is disqualified for any reason, an alternate winner will be selected from among all eligible entries for the applicable Entry Period.
Odds of winning a prize will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received during the applicable weekly Entry Period.
4. PRIZES AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES: Weekly Prize: One winner will be selected each week and awarded an Apple iPad. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $329/each Weekly Prize.
Sponsor will pay for shipping of prize to winning contestant.
Any costs including taxes associated with prize receipt and/or use that are not expressly stated above are the sole responsibility of the prize winner. Any unclaimed and/or unused prize/prize component will be forfeited by prize winner and will remain the property of Sponsor. Prizes are non-transferable, non-assignable and have no cash value. No prize substitution or cash redemption allowed by prize winner. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the prize or any element thereof for a prize or element of equal or greater value. In no case will more than the stated number of prizes be awarded. No portion of prize may be sold, bartered or exchanged by prize winner. Prizes will be awarded without any warranty from Sponsor of any kind.
Limit one prize per entrant. Once an entrant has won a prize, that entrant is not eligible to win a prize in a subsequent Weekly Drawing(s).
The total ARV of all prizes available to be awarded in the Promotion: $1,645.00.
Acceptance of prize constitutes permission for the Sponsor and its designees to use winner’s name and/or likeness for purposes of advertising and trade in connection with the Sweepstakes, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed, worldwide, in perpetuity, without further compensation.
