Follow the links and instructions to write a review of the product you have selected and submit your rating and review.

Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may decide not to display your review if it believes that your review violates these terms and conditions.

Limit: You may enter up to one (1) time per day during the Promotion Period. Subsequent entries must be in relation to a different product for which the entrant has not previously submitted a review as part of the Sweepstakes. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

6. Grand Prize Judging: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will select the potential Sweepstakes winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period based on creativity, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm 09/07/2015. Whether a review is positive or negative will not impact an entrant’s chances of winning. This is a game of skill and chance plays no part in determining the winners. The potential winners will be notified by email. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to provide any other requested information, within the required time period, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
