Prizes The Organizer will provide the Prize(s) to be awarded for a particular Contest. No substitution of a Prize will be made unless the Organizer, in its sole discretion, determines otherwise. A Prize must be accepted as awarded, and the odds of winning are dependent upon the total number of eligible Entries received for the Contest Period. If, as a result of an error relating to the entry process, drawing or any other aspect of the Contest, there are more potential winners of Prizes than contemplated in these rules, there will be a random draw amongst all eligible Prize claimants after the Contest Closing Date (as set out in the Contest Summary) to award the correct number of Prizes.
Winner(s) The winner(s) ("Winner(s)") of the Prize(s) will be selected, as specified in the Contest Summary, from all eligible Entries received. If you are selected as a Winner, you will be notified of the selection of your Entry by the email address provided by you on the Registration Form. If you do not respond to the tweet or email notification of your selection as a Winner within seven days, an alternate Winner will be selected to receive the Prize. All decisions of the Organizer in selecting the Winner (s) are final and binding on all Entrants in all matters relating to the Contest.
Voting Online voting via the Hipstamatic iPhone Application begins and ends as stated in the Contest Summary (the "Voting Period"). Anyone with a Hipstamatic account can vote for their favorite Entry or the Entry that best meets the judging criteria during the Voting Period. The Organizer has the right, in its sole discretion, to maintain the integrity of the Contest, including the right to void votes, including, but not limited to, for the following reasons: multiple votes from the same user from different IP addresses or from different email addresses; fraudulent entry votes (using a redirect link, a disguised link, a fraudulent link, etc.); technical malfunction of servers or internet connection; user(s) recanting their own votes; technical or content upgrades that render votes incompatible or inconsistent; and inappropriate conduct in promoting votes (spam, harassment, etc.).
General Conditions The Organizer has the right to verify your eligibility and compliance with these Rules, and to disqualify you on the basis of its investigation. You should direct any request to access, update, or correct your personal information to the Organizer. You may not enter with multiple e-mail and/or street addresses, nor may you use any other device or artifice to submit more than one Entry or vote. If you use fraudulent Entry methods, or otherwise attempt to participate with multiple e-mail and/or street addresses under multiple identities, or use any device or artifice to enter more than one Entry, you will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter will be deemed to be the person who made the Entry. For the purposes of these Rules, the authorized "account holder" is the natural person assigned a Hipstamatic account by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Nothing contained in these Rules shall be construed to: (i) give any party the power to direct and control the day-to-day activities of the other; (ii) constitute the parties as partners, joint venturers, principal and agent, employer and employee, co-owners or entrants in a joint undertaking; or (iii) allow you to create or assume any obligation on behalf of the Organizer. By entering the Contest, you fully and unconditionally agree to and accept these Rules and the decisions of the Organizer and the members of the voting community, which are final and binding on all matters relating to this Contest. The Organizer reserves the right to cancel, modify or suspend the Contest at any time (subject to approval of any regulatory body having jurisdiction), if it is determined that the Contest cannot be run as originally planned or if fraud or any other occurrence comprises the fairness or integrity of the Contest.
