Georgia Aquarium, Inc. ("Sponsor") and each of its respective employees, representatives, agents, successors, and assigns are not responsible for lost, damaged, stolen, late, incomplete, destroyed, illegible, undeliverable or misdirected entries or for any errors associated with the drawing, including entries that are not received. All such entries are ineligible. Only online entries will be accepted. No faxed, mailed, e-mailed or telephoned entries will be accepted. Sponsor has no obligation to advise an entrant or an incomplete or otherwise non-compliant entry. For purposes of this Contest, "receipt" of an entry occurs when Sponsors' (or its designee's) servers record the entry information upon clicking the "enter" or "submit" button at the bottom of the entry form or when Sponsors’ (or its designee’s) record entries submitted onsite. Any automated computer receipt (such as a "thanks for entering message") does not constitute proof of actual receipt of an entry by Sponsor. Proof of submission of an entry will not be deemed proof of receipt. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The "authorized account " holder is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Holders of multiple e-mail addresses are restricted to a single entry, using one of those addresses. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
All information and entries submitted become the property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. By entering the Contest, each entrant assigns and shall assign to Sponsor all right, title and interest that entrant may have in and to his or her entry, including, all intellectual property rights or other personal or proprietary rights, without expectation of compensation or acknowledgement (other than the potential prize award awarded as set forth in these official rules). Sponsor reserves the right to modify or edit an entry, in whole or in part, for any or no reason, and each entrant waives any and all "moral rights" in and to the entry. Sponsor further reserves the right to decline to use the entry for any reason, in its sole and absolute discretion, including, without limitation, the prize winner’s submission. Entrants (including prize winner) agree that there is no guarantee that Sponsor will make use of any rights granted to Sponsor in any entry.
By entering, you represent and warrant that you own the rights in and to your entry and have the authority to grant the Sponsor the rights provided in these Official Rules.
