The winners are responsible for all federal, state, local and other taxes, and all other costs and expenses, associated with the prizes. No transfer, substitution or cash equivalent of any prize is permitted. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize (or any component thereof) with another prize (or component thereof) of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Properly claimed Prizes will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible entries are received, but in no event will more prizes than are provided for in these Official Rules be awarded.

6) Other Conditions:  By entering the Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless and waive any claims against Sponsor and its respective affiliates, subsidiaries, parent corporations and advertising and promotional agencies, and all of its officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees and agents from any and all injuries, claims, damages, losses, costs or expenses of any kind (including without limitation attorneys’ fees) resulting from submitting an entry or otherwise participating in any aspect of the Sweepstakes; the receipt, ownership or use of the prize; preparing for, participating in or traveling to and/or from any prize-related activity; or any printing, typographical or other error in these Official Rules or the announcement of offering of the prize.  Neither the failure of Sponsor to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Official Rules nor the failure, delay or omission by Sponsor in exercising any right with respect to any term of these Official Rules will be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of Sponsor’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.  Sponsor also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify these Official Rules for clarification purposes without materially affecting the terms and conditions of the Sweepstakes.  If there is any discrepancy between any term of these Official Rules and marketing or entry materials used in connection with the Sweepstakes, these Official Rules will govern.

7) Publicity:  By accepting a prize, a prize winner agrees, where legal, to allow Sponsor as well as its agents and licensees to use winner’s name, voice, photograph, likeness, any statement provided by winner, and any information provided on the entry form, in any medium of communication, including for advertising, promotional or other purposes, without additional compensation.

8) Internet/Fraud/Tampering:  If for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, tampering, fraud, technical failure or any other cause that corrupts or threatens the administration, security or integrity of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate or suspend the Sweepstakes.  If Sponsor terminates or modifies the Sweepstakes, Sponsor will post notice on the Home Chef website and Sponsor will select the winner by random drawing from among eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the termination of the Sweepstakes.  Sponsor reserves the right to prohibit any entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes if, in its sole discretion, Sponsor finds that such entrant shows a disregard for, or attempts to circumvent, these Official Rules, or acts: (a) in a manner the Sponsor determines to be not fair or equitable; (b) in an annoying, threatening or harassing manner; or (c) in any other disruptive manner.  If a dispute arises regarding compliance with these Official Rules, Sponsor may consider, in its sole discretion, data reasonably available to Sponsor through information technology systems in Sponsor’s control, but Sponsor will not be obligated to consider any data or other information collected from any other source.  Sponsor assumes no liability for any unauthorized access to, or theft, destruction or alteration of entries at any point in the operation of the Sweepstakes.
