4. How to Enter:
(a) As the sole method for entering the Sweepstakes and being included in the Sweepstakes prize recipient selection procedure described in Section 5 below, an eligible entrant is required to do each of the following during the Entry Period: (a) visit the “#TiVoFallFantasyLeague” section on the landing page of the FallTV2015.tivo.com microsite; (b) follow the instructions on such webpage for voting electronically on “Today’s Battle” between two competing television shows (i.e., the entrant shall vote for which of those two television shows he/she thinks will garner more viewers; the actual outcome of such voting shall have no bearing on this Sweepstakes entry process); (c) tweet his/her vote in the “Today’s Battle” described in subsection (b) above; and (d) include the #TiVoFallFantasy hashtag as part of the tweet of his/her vote. By taking and completing each of the four (4) actions set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, an eligible entrant will receive one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes. Normal time rates, text messaging rates, and/or data rates (as applicable), if any, charged by the Sweepstakes entrant’s internet service provider will apply. Each Sweepstakes entrant represents and warrants that his/her tweet pursuant to subsection (c) above does not and will not: (i) constitute a defamation against, or otherwise disparage, any person or entity (including, without limitation, Sponsor or any competitor of Sponsor) or the products or services of any person or entity; (ii) violate the right of privacy or right of publicity of any person or entity; (iii) infringe, misappropriate or violate the copyright, trademark, service mark, patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property, proprietary or other right(s) of any person or entity; (iv) contain any brand or trademark other than those of Sponsor (with Sponsor’s trademarks not to be altered or obscured in any manner and not to be combined or interspersed with any third party materials); (v) contain any words or material that are unlawful, obscene, indecent, pornographic, sexually explicit/suggestive, profane, violent, threatening, offensive, or otherwise deemed by Sponsor or by Administrator to be objectionable or inappropriate for public dissemination; or (vi) promote discrimination, racism, bigotry, hatred, or harm against any group or individual. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means are void.
(b) Limit of one (1) Entry per person or email address or Twitter account during each of the eight (8) calendar days (as measured by PT) of the Sweepstakes Period. If any person or email address or Twitter account submits multiple entries on any calendar day (as measured by PT) of the Sweepstakes Period, then all such entries will be deemed null and void and ineligible for any prize drawing or other prize consideration in the Sweepstakes. If an individual has received a prize in another sweepstakes, contest or other promotion which has been conducted by Sponsor (or with which Sponsor otherwise was involved) in the twelve (12)-month period culminating on September 22, 2015, then such individual (together with any other individuals sharing the same email address or living in the same household) shall be prohibited from participating in the Sweepstakes, and any Entries into the Sweepstakes by such individual (or by another individual sharing the same email address or living in the same household) will be deemed null and void and ineligible for any prize drawing or other prize consideration in the Sweepstakes. All Entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor, and Entries will be neither acknowledged nor returned.
(c) By entering the Sweepstakes and providing his/her email address, each entrant specifically acknowledges, agrees and understands that he/she periodically may receive, from Sponsor and its affiliates and agents, marketing and promotional offers and updates via email communications. By clicking on the “unsubscribe” link contained in each and any such email communication and by following the “unsubscribe” instructions, an entrant subsequently can opt out at any time from his/her receipt of such marketing and promotional email communications. An entrant’s election to unsubscribe from his/her receipt of such marketing and promotional email communications will not affect such entrant’s chances of winning a prize in the Sweepstakes.

 

5. Prize Recipient Selection Procedure: On or about September 30, 2015 (the “Drawing Date”), Sponsor (or its agent or designee) will select, by means of a random drawing from among all eligible Sweepstakes Entries received by Sponsor during the Entry Period (the “Drawing”), one (1) potential recipient of the one (1) “Prize” (which Prize is described in greater detail in Section 7(a) below) to be awarded in the Sweepstakes. There is a limit of one (1) prize per person, per household, per email account, and per Twitter account. The odds of receiving a prize will depend on the number of eligible Entries received by Sponsor during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor will attempt to notify (by email) the potential Prize recipient within approximately three (3) days of the Drawing Date. If the potential Prize recipient cannot be contacted within seventy-two (72) business hours after Sponsor’s initial attempt to contact such individual, or if the eligibility and identity of the potential Prize recipient cannot be verified promptly (and to Sponsor’s satisfaction) after such individual is contacted, then such individual will be disqualified and the Prize will be awarded to an alternate potential Prize recipient who is selected by means of a subsequent random drawing (from among the remaining eligible Sweepstakes Entries) to be conducted by Sponsor (or its agent or designee) shortly thereafter. In addition, any potential Prize recipient may, in Sponsor’s discretion, be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability (certifying, among other things, that the entrant meets the eligibility requirements set forth in Section 1 above) (“Affidavit”) and, if legally permissible, a Publicity Release (“Release”), with any and all such Affidavit and Release documentation to be completed, signed and returned by the potential Prize recipient to Sponsor within five (5) business days after Sponsor’s issuance of such documentation. If a potential Prize recipient fails to complete, sign and return any and all such required Affidavit and Release documentation to Sponsor within five (5) business days after Sponsor’s issuance of such documentation, then such potential Prize recipient will be disqualified and an alternate potential Prize recipient will be selected (by means of another random drawing, to be conducted by Sponsor (or its agent or designee) from among the remaining eligible Sweepstakes Entries. If a potential Prize recipient is considered a minor under the laws of his or her jurisdiction of residency, then Sponsor reserves the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, to award the Prize to a parent or legal guardian and/or to require a parent or legal guardian to complete, execute and deliver to Sponsor any and all required Affidavit and Release documentation.

 

6. Potential Prize Recipient’s Compliance With Official Rules: Non-compliance by any potential Prize recipient with any provision of these Official Rules will result in the immediate disqualification of such potential Prize recipient from the Sweepstakes. In such a situation, Sponsor may (in its sole discretion), but will not be required to, select an alternate potential Prize recipient (i.e., from among the remaining eligible Sweepstakes Entries) in place of the potential Prize recipient who has been disqualified.

 

7. Prizes:
(a) Pursuant to the “Prize Recipient Selection Procedure” described in Section 5 above, one (1) Prize will be awarded in the Sweepstakes. The One (1) Prize will consist solely of the following two (2) components: (i) one (1) TiVo Roamio Plus DVR unit, the precise style, color and features of which shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion; and (ii) a non-transferable “Product Lifetime Service” subscription applicable exclusively to such specific DVR unit. (Such Product Lifetime Service subscription lasts for the lifetime of such specific DVR unit, not for the lifetime of the user, and such Product Lifetime Service subscription may not be transferred to another TiVo device.) Each Sweepstakes entrant specifically acknowledges, agrees and understands that: (A) the Prize does not include any accessories or any insurance/protection plan; and (B) as a condition of accepting, receiving and using the Prize, the Prize recipient must accept (either through an online click-acceptance procedure, or as part of the executed Affidavit and Release documentation, at Sponsor’s sole discretion) the then-effective version of the TiVo User Agreement. The Prize will be shipped via ground service to the Prize recipient, at the street/mailing address (not a post office box number) theretofore provided by the Prize recipient to Sponsor; such shipment shall be made approximately three (3) weeks after Sponsor’s receipt and approval of the completed and signed Affidavit and Release documentation (as described in Section 5 above) from such Prize recipient. The cost of shipping the Prize to each Prize recipient will be borne by Sponsor, with the precise means and mode of shipping, and the particular shipping carrier, to be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. The Approximate Retail Value of the Prize is Eight Hundred Ninety-Nine Dollars and Ninety-Eight Cents ($899.98).
(b) The Prize recipient shall bear sole and full responsibility for any and all expenses, costs and fees in connection with the receipt or use of the Prize, which expenses, costs and fees are not expressly described herein as being awarded to the Prize recipient. The prompt reporting and prompt payment of any and all applicable taxes with respect to the value of the Prize, including federal, state and local income, sales and other taxes, are the sole and full responsibility of the Prize recipient. The Prize recipient may be issued an IRS Form 1099, and the value of the Prize may be considered taxable income to the Prize recipient.
(c) The Prize is awarded “as is”, with no representation, warranty or guarantee, either expressed or implied, by Sponsor. The Prize recipient is prohibited from returning, exchanging, assigning or transferring the Prize or from redeeming the Prize for cash; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, to substitute the Prize with another prize of substantially equivalent or greater value if the designated Prize should become unavailable for any reason. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

 

8. Release of Liability: By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees that Sponsor, Administrator, Sponsor’s and Administrator’s respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising, marketing and promotion agencies, each such entity’s respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, representatives and agents, and Twitter (collectively, the “Released Entities”), will have no liability whatsoever for, and shall be held harmless by entrants from and against any liability for, any injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including death, to persons or property resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from acceptance, possession, misuse or use of any prize or participation in the Sweepstakes, or in any activity associated therewith.

10. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of the Sweepstakes, if the Sweepstakes, or any portion thereof, is compromised by any virus, worm, bug, non-authorized human intervention, fraud, mechanical failure, or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control that impairs the integrity, fairness, safety, security or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right, exercisable in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual(s) it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in any unsportsmanlike, abusive, harassing, threatening or disruptive manner, and all associated Entries will be void. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and/or civil laws, and should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from and against any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding a prize or from continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic of health or other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or stoppage or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or insurrection, any federal, state or local government law, order or regulation, public health crisis (e.g., SARS), order of any court having jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each, a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then subject solely to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right, with or without notice, to modify, suspend or terminate the Sweepstakes or any affected portion(s) of the Sweepstakes
