3) Submitted Photos:  By submitting a Photo as part of an entry in this Giveaway, each entrant represents and warrants that: no laws were broken in the creation of the Photo; the Photo is the entrant’s own original creation; and the Photo does not violate the rights of any other person or company (including but not limited to privacy and copyrights), does not defame, libel or slander anyone or any entity, does not contain unsafe, offensive, indecent, vulgar, obscene or profane content, and in no other way violates any applicable laws.  The Photo must not include any recognizable individual other than the entrant.  The Photo must not disparage any person or Sponsor; promote bigotry, racism, sexism, hatred or harm against any group or individual; promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age; contain any nudity, sexually explicit, lewd, offensive, disparaging or other inappropriate content; and/or communicate messages or images inconsistent with the positive images and/or goodwill with which Sponsor wishes to be associated.

The Prize will be sent directly to winner.  Sponsor is not responsible for loss, delay or damage in delivery.  Winner is solely responsible for any applicable federal, state and local taxes in connection with the prize.  Prize substitutions are not allowed, and prize is not transferable.  Prize may not be redeemed for cash.  Only Sponsor may elect, at its discretion, to substitute a prize of greater or equal value because of lack of availability.  Prize is awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied, by Sponsor.  A properly claimed prize will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible entries are received, but in no event will Sponsor award more prizes than are provided for in these Official Rules.

6) Other Conditions:  By entering the Giveaway, each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless and waive any claims against Sponsor, and any other entity involved with the Giveaway as well as Instagram and its respective affiliates, subsidiaries, parent corporations and advertising and promotional agencies, and all of their 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 Giveaway; 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 Giveaway.  If there is any discrepancy between any term of these Official Rules and marketing or entry materials used in connection with the Giveaway, these Official Rules will govern.

By accepting the prize, winner agrees, where legal, to allow Sponsor and 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.


7) Internet/Fraud/Tampering:  If for any reason the Giveaway 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 Giveaway, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate or suspend the Giveaway.  If Sponsor terminates or modifies the Giveaway, 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 Giveaway.  Sponsor reserves the right to prohibit any entrant from participating in the Giveaway 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 Giveaway.
