Multiple entrants are not permitted to share an Account. The use of any automated system to enter the Contest is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected entries, which shall be disqualified.  In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the Account used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant.  Potential Winners will be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.  The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an Account name by the relevant online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning Account information for the domain associated with the submitted address.

By submitting an Entry you warrant and represent that: (a) it is original to you and that you have all necessary rights in and to the Entry to enter the Contest, (b) it does not infringe upon the copyrights, trademarks, rights of privacy, publicity or other intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity, (c) you have obtained permission from any person whose name is used in the Entry, and (d) that publication of the Entry via various media including Web posting, will not infringe on the rights of any third party rights.  Any such entrant will indemnify and hold harmless, Sponsor from any claims to the contrary. 

Uploading an Entry constitutes your consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes.  If necessary, entrant will sign any necessary documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Entry. 

Any waiver of any obligation hereunder by Sponsor does not constitute a general waiver of any obligation to entrants.

6. Winner Selection. The winners will be determined using the following process:

At the conclusion of the Entry Period, Sponsor will assemble a panel of judges (as determined by Sponsor; herein, the “Judges”). Judges will judge all eligible Entries received based on the following criteria:

•           Originality (up to 5 points);

•           Marketability (up to 5 points); and,

•           Reflection of the spirit of Precor (up to 5 points)

The five (5) entrants submitting the Entries that receive the five highest cumulative scores will be deemed the potential prize winners. In the event of a tie, the tying entrant who submitted the Entry with the higher “Originality” score will be deemed the potential prize winner; in the event of a tie on “Originality” score, the tying entrant who submitted the Entry receiving the higher “Marketability” score will be deemed the potential prize winner; and in the event of a tie on “Marketability” score, the tying entrant who submitted the Entry receiving the higher “Reflection of the Spirit of Precor” score will be deemed the potential prize winner.


7. Notification and Requirements of Potential Winners. After the Contest, Sponsor will send to the potential winners a prize notification, to the Accounts used to enter the Contest, with instructions on how to claim the Prize. If a potential winner does not respond and comply with the instructions in the notification within three (3) business days after the time stamp of the same, such potential winner will forfeit the Prize, and Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in their place from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period using the same criteria as the non-responsive selected potential winner. Except where prohibited, any potential winner will be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the “Affidavit/Release”). If a potential Prize winner cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the Affidavit within the required time period (if applicable), or the Prize is returned as undeliverable, that potential winner forfeits their Prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to award any given prize to an alternate entrant based on the next highest points received, even if the disqualified potential winner’s name or Entry may have been publicly announced. If after three (3) attempts a Prize winner is not confirmed, the Prize will remain un-awarded. Acceptance of any Prize shall constitute and signify Prize winner’s agreement and consent that Sponsor may use Prize winner’s name, city, state, likeness, Entry and/or prize information in connection with the Contest, worldwide, including the Internet, without limitation and without further payment or consideration, except where prohibited by law.

8. Five (5) Prizes. Five (5) potential prize winners will be selected in accordance with these Official Rules. Each potential winner will be eligible to receive one (1) Suunto Ambit3 Sport Blue HR. [ARV: $449; Total ARV of Prizes: $2245]. Any difference between stated approximate retail value and actual value of the Prize will not be awarded. Prize will be shipped at Sponsor’s discretion upon completion of the requirements imposed by these Official Rules.

Any and all further Prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. The Prize winner may be issued an IRS 1099 form.  The Prizes may not be transferred or assigned except by Sponsor.  No substitutions, cash equivalents or redemptions of prize will be made.  If a Prize, or any portion thereof, cannot be awarded for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute prize with another prize of equal or greater value.  Reporting and payment of all applicable taxes, fees, and/or surcharges, if any, arising out of, or resulting from, acceptance or use of a prize, are the sole responsibility of the winner of the Prize. By accepting a Prize, the Prize Winner agrees that his/her Entry will be deemed a Work Made For Hire under the Copyright laws of the United States, but if it cannot be so deemed, then the Prize Winner irrevocably assigns and transfers to Sponsor all of his/her right, title and interest in and to his/her Entry, including, but not limited to, all copyright and trademark rights which he or she may have, in the United States and worldwide, therein, for consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and further waives any moral rights the entrant may have with respect to the Entry. 

9. General Conditions. In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Contest is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Contest to address the impairment and then resume the Contest in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prizes at Sponsor’s discretion from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by Sponsor to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. The Contest is subject to all applicable laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.
