  5. For All Entries: Limit: Each participant may submit up to 100 total entries per calendar day across all individual Sweepstakes by any method or combination of methods of entry, and allocate those entries as he/she wishes. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated maximum number of entries by using multiple/different identities, phone numbers, email addresses, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that participant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes and any of the Sponsors' other promotions. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar entry methods or agents (including, but not limited to, sweepstakes entry services) will void all entries by that entrant. Regardless of method of entry, participant must have a valid contact information. If a participant does not provide a working telephone number or email address, or the contact information provided by the participant is deemed to be invalid, Sponsors reserve the right to invalidate the entry.

  6. Drawings: On or about the drawing date set forth for each Sweepstakes, winners will be selected via a random drawing from all eligible entries received for that Sweepstakes. The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the applicable Sweepstakes.

  7. Requirements of Potential Winners: Potential winners must continue to comply with the Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. If a potential winner does not make him/herself known, cannot be contacted, does not respond within the required time period, the potential winner may be disqualified and forfeits the prize. In the event that a potential winner of a prize is disqualified for any reason, an alternate winner may be selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates, if time permits. If all potential alternate winners of a prize are disqualified, no further drawings will take place and that prize will not be awarded.

No substitution, exchange or transfer of prize by any winner. Sponsors reserve the right to substitute any prize for one of equal or greater value. Prizes are selected at random and sponsors do not determine a particular prize in advance of a drawing; therefore there is no promise of a particular prize as a result of any particular entry. Winners are responsible for all fees associated with prize receipt and/or use.

  9.  Publicity: Participation in any Sweepstakes constitutes entrant’s consent for the Sponsors, applicable prize providers and their respective designees to use entrant’s first and last name, likeness, prize information, city and state of residence, and any comments, testimonials or other feedback related to any prize or entrant's Sweepstakes experience, whether written or oral, for promotional purposes in any media without further consideration.   

  10. General Conditions: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of any individual Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud, human error, or any technical problems, the Sponsors may, in their sole discretion, either: (a) modify the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of the Official Rules without suspending it; (b) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of the Official Rules; or (c) cancel the Sweepstakes and award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsors reserve the right in their sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of the Sweepstakes or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, from participation in any 2020 Official Festival Guitars Sweepstakes or any other promotions sponsored by The Music Experience and/or RONZWORLD. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of any part of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsors reserve the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.  The Sponsors' failure to enforce any term of the Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.     

  11. Release and Limitations of Liability: Except where prohibited, by participating in a Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless The Music Experience, RONZWORLD, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, promotional partners, prize partners, providers and their respective agents and agencies,  officers, directors, and employees, as well as any specific parties that may be identified in the Sweepstakes Info, (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in any Sweepstakes, or receipt, use or misuse of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, or telephone, cellular, or network lines; (c) printing errors; (d) errors in the administration of any Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (e) late, lost, or undeliverable mail or email; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt, use or misuse of any prize. Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees.  Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages (other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses or statutory damages) and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. If the Sweepstakes has been discontinued for any reason, Sponsors, in their discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes for any individual sweepstakes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than stated number of prizes as set forth in any individual Sweepstakes to be claimed, Sponsors reserve the right to award only up to the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.  

  12. Disputes: Each entrant agrees that: (i) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with any of the Sweepstakes or any prizes awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and (ii) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering any Sweepstakes, or statutory damages, but in no event attorneys' fees. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of the Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsors in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Florida or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Florida.
