Participants in the Promotion will be required to provide full name, a valid e-mail address, and a daytime phone number. In addition, entrant will have the opportunity to briefly tell, in writing, about a life goal or dream that winning the Grand Prize (as defined in section 4 herein) might help to fulfill. Submitting such written response is for fun only and is not required for entry into the Sweepstakes. Such optional written submission will in no way be used to determine a winner, nor will it increase an entrant’s chances of winning a prize.

 

By providing such optional written submission, entrant grants to National CineMedia (the "Sponsor) and AARP the right to use his/her response for purposes of advertising and trade in connection with the Sweepstakes without compensation or notice.

Completing and submitting a Sweepstakes entry online in the manner stated above is the only means of participating in the Promotion. Receipt of entries may be acknowledged; but such acknowledgement does not constitute any representation by Sponsor as to Sweepstakes eligibility.

 

Entries must be received by 11:59:59 PM (MST) on 5/16/14.

 

Limit one (1) entry per person/e-mail address per day (12:00:00 a.m. ET - 11:59:59 p.m. ET). If more than one (1) daily entry is received by a person or email address, all entries for that day will be void and such person may be disqualified. Use of any automated program or like means to violate the entry conditions (including the entry limit) will void all that entrant's entries and that entrant will be disqualified from the Sweepstakes.

 

Sponsor, AARP and their respective agencies are not responsible for late, lost, garbled/undecipherable, misdirected, incomplete or invalid entries or game plays, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to identity of an entrant, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter will be deemed the entrant. The "authorized account holder" of an e-mail address is the natural person assigned this e-mail address 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. 

 

2. ELIGIBILITY: Promotion open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and Washington, D.C. who are fifty (50) years of age or older. Void where prohibited.

Potential Grand Prize winner will be required to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release of Liability, Prize Acceptance Form and, if legally permissible, a Publicity Release within five (5) days of receipt of such documents. Potential Grand Prize winner agrees that an electronic signature shall have the same legal force and effect as signing these documents by hand.

 

Noncompliance within these time periods or return of prize notification or required documents as undeliverable may result in disqualification without further notice, and an alternate winner selected from among all remaining eligible entries received.

 

Odds of winning the Grand Prize will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
