The Twitter database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Sweepstakes. NOTE: Sponsor may not receive entries from Twitter users with “protected” or “private” updates (i.e., user has set their Twitter Account or so that only people the user has approved can view updates) due to the way Twitter operates its service. Twitter posts not received by Sponsor will not be entered into the Sweepstakes. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Twitter Account.

NOTE ABOUT TWITTER:

Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for any changes or unavailability of the Twitter service that may interfere with the Sweepstakes (including any limitations, any restrictions, or any conditions on Sponsor’s ability to use Twitter for the Sweepstakes as set forth herein that are not acceptable to Sponsor) or ability of entrant to timely enter, receive notices or communicate with Sponsor via Twitter, in which case Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may terminate or modify the Sweepstakes. It is a potential winner’s responsibility to set his/her Twitter Account as applicable, to accept contacts by Sponsor and to timely check such account for any Sponsor direct messages.

Limit on Entries: Limit one entry per person.  If You attempt to exceed the entry limits through the use of multiple accounts, devices, identities or by any other means, Your entry(ies) will be void and you may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes.  The use of any robot, computer program, sweepstakes entry service or similar entry method is prohibited and will void Your entry(ies) and You may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes.  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual entering the Sweepstakes during the Promotion Period, the authorized subscriber of the email account associated with the Fold account from which the entry was received will be deemed to be the entrant and must comply with these Official Rules.  Authorized subscriber means the natural person who is assigned the email address by the relevant Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the email address.  

Winner Selection and Verification:  Winners will be chosen at random. Your odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received.  The odds of winning a given prize are posted below.  

Winner Notification: The Prize Winners will be notified by receiving a direct message from Fold to their Twitter account with a request for their full name, address, and Fold Account username (a “Winner Notification”). Once the Winner provides such information they will receive the prize in their Fold Account.

If any Winner Notification or other Sweepstakes communication is rejected or returned as undeliverable, if a potential Winner cannot be reached after a reasonable attempt has been made by Sponsor (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion), if a Winner cannot attend or participate in any portion of the applicable Prize, or if the potential Winner fails to respond to a Winner Notification and/or to sign and return the Affidavit (if required) within the time periods set forth herein, the prize will be forfeited in Sponsor’s sole discretion and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting) based on the original method of winner selection in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor may only look to five (5) alternate winners for the applicable Prize, at which point the applicable Prize may be deemed unclaimed and Sponsor will have no further obligation with respect to such Prize. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential Winner. If legitimately claimed in compliance with these Official Rules, the Prize will be awarded. To claim a Prize, a Winner must follow the directions in his or her Winner Notification.
