Entries for each Entry Period may be submitted between the Start Date/Time and the End Date/Time for the Entry Period.  The sole determinant of the time for purposes of the Contest will be the time-keeping devices used by Sponsor.  Entries received during an Entry Period will be considered only for that Entry Period and not for any subsequent Entry Period.

How to Enter:  Each entrant can make a maximum of one entry (each, an “Entry” and collectively, the “Entries”) in the Contest per calendar day.  Each Entry must include: (1) a photo that incorporates both the entrant and the actual vehicle known as the AO Jeep parked somewhere other than the employee parking lot behind Sponsor’s office (the “Theme”).  The photo may not (A) contain profanity, vulgar or offensive language or symbols, pornographic or sexual content, content promoting alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms or weapons, hateful content of any kind (including racism, sexism, etc.), content that promotes, endorses, condones, or discusses any violence or harm to another living creature, any other offensive, obscene, inappropriate, illegal, or risky behavior or conduct, personal information of individuals, including but not limited to names, telephone numbers and addresses (physical or electronic), commercial messages, comparisons or solicitations for products or services other than those of Sponsor, any identifiable third party products, trade-marks, brands and/or logos, other than those of Sponsor (for example, any clothing worn and/or products appearing in an Entry must not contain any visible logos, trademarks or other third party materials unless the appropriate consents have been obtained, and any identifiable third party products, trademarks, brands, or logos for which consent has not been obtained by the entrant must be blurred out so as to be unrecognizable), or any other materials that are or could be considered inappropriate, unsuitable, or offensive, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion, or (B) defame, misrepresent, or disparage any person or entity, including but not limited to Sponsor, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion.  The photo may not be taken while the AO Jeep is parked in the employee parking lot behind Sponsor’s office.  Entries can be made as follows:

If Sponsor discovers that any person has attempted to use multiple names, identities, email addresses, accounts from the same Social Media Platform, any automated, macro, script, robotic, or other system or program, or any other means not in keeping with Sponsor’s interpretation of the letter and spirit of these Official Rules to enter or otherwise participate in or to disrupt the Contest; then that person may be disqualified from the Contest in the sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor.

Use of Social Media Platforms:  The Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by, or associated with, Facebook (each, a “Social Media Platform”).  Facebook and each of its agents, employees, directors, successors, and assigns are not responsible for, and accept no liability in relation to, any late, lost, misdirected, delayed, incomplete, or incompatible Entries (all of which will be void).  Each entrant releases the Social Media Platforms from any and all liability related to the Contest.  Any questions, comments, or complaints regarding the Contest must be directed to Sponsor and not to any Social Media Platform.  Each entrant may only use one Facebook account to participate in the Contest.  To be eligible to make an Entry in the Contest using a Social Media Platform, an entrant’s account on that Social Media Platform must be set to public and not private.

Entrant Representations and Warranties:  Each entrant represents and warrants that (1) he or she is the person making the entry; (2) he or she is the owner of each photo submitted in connection with the Contest; (3) each photo he or she submits in connection with the Contest complies with these Official Rules and all conditions described in these Official Rules and does not violate any applicable law; (4) no photo he or she submits in connection with the Contest contains any reference to or likeness of any identifiable third party, unless consent has been obtained from him or her and his or her parent or legal guardian if they are under the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, (5) neither any photo he or she submits in connection with the Contest nor its use by Sponsor as provided in these Official Rules does or will infringe or misappropriate any intellectual property, rights of publicity, or other proprietary rights of any person or entity; and (6) Sponsor and its employees, agents, successors, and assigns will bear no liability whatsoever regarding: (A) the use of any Entry in accordance with these Official Rules, (B) entrant’s participation in any activities related to the Contest, or (C) any use, collection, storage and disclosure of any personal information; or (D) if declared a winner, any prize.  Each entrant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor and its employees, agents, successors, and assigns from and against any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to any breach of any of entrant’s representations and warranties in the preceding sentence.

Use of Entries:  No Entry or photo included any Entry will be returned.  All Entries, including the photos submitted with them, become the property of Sponsor upon their submission and may be posted on Sponsor’s website.  Sponsor will have an exclusive, transferable, worldwide, perpetual right to edit, modify, cut, rearrange, add to, delete from, publish, copy, exhibit, transmit, broadcast or otherwise use the Entries and the photos submitted with them by any means and in any media, whether now known or hereafter developed, for any and all purposes, without further review, notice, approval, consideration, or compensation of entrants.  By entering the Contest, all entrants consent to the use by Sponsor of all the information provided in the Entries, including but not limited to marketing or sales promotion purposes.

Technical Difficulties:  Sponsor assumes no responsibility for damaged, incomplete, garbled, illegible, misspelled, lost, misdirected, or late Entries, or for technical, electronic, telephone, computer system, network, hardware, or software malfunctions, errors, failures, or delays, whether human or technical in nature and whether caused by Sponsor, any of its employees, any entrant, or any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Contest, including any that may prevent, limit, or delay an entrant’s ability to participate in the Contest.

Cancellation or Suspension:  Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the Contest and award a prize from Entries received up to the time of cancellation or suspension in the event of any virus, bug, technical, electronic, telephone, computer system, network, hardware, or software malfunction, error, failure, delay, or other cause beyond Sponsor’s control, including unauthorized human intervention, which, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, corrupts, compromises, or materially affects the administration, fairness, security, or proper play of the Contest or proper submission of Entries.  Sponsor is not liable for any loss, injury, or damage caused, whether directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from downloading data or otherwise participating in the Contest.

Prizes:  The following prizes will be available to be won:

Entry Period Prizes:  There will be a total of four Entry Period prizes available to be won, with one Entry Period prize available to be won per Entry Period.  Each Entry Period prize will consist of a gift card in the amount of $100.  Gift cards are subject to the terms and conditions of the issuer.

Sponsor reserves the right to substitute other prizes of approximately equivalent value in its sole discretion.  There is a limit of one Entry Period prize per person.

Each prize must be accepted as awarded and is not transferable, assignable, or convertible to cash (except as may be specifically permitted by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion).  No substitutions except at Sponsor’s option.  Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to substitute any prize with another prize of equal or greater retail value, including but not limited to, at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, a cash award.  Sponsor makes no representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of any prize awarded in connection with the Contest.  Acceptance of a prize constitutes consent for Sponsor to use any winner's name, likeness, and winning Entry for editorial, advertising, and publicity purposes, without further compensation or right of review, except where prohibited.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, each winner understands and acknowledges that he or she may not seek reimbursement or pursue any legal or equitable remedy from Sponsor if his or her prize is in any way unsatisfactory.

Selection of Winner:  On the Draw Date indicated for each Entry Period, one eligible Entry will be selected by random draw from among all eligible Entries submitted and received in accordance with these Official Rules during the Entry Period.  Eligible Entries from a given Entry Period will not be included in any subsequent Entry Period.  Therefore, if you want a chance to win for any given Entry Period, then you need to make at least one eligible Entry in accordance with these Official Rules during that Entry Period.

On the Draw Date indicated for the final Entry Period, one eligible Entry will be selected by random draw from among all eligible Entries submitted and received in accordance with these Official Rules during the Contest Period.

Odds of Winning:  The odds of an Entry winning a prize are not capable of being calculated due to the uncertainty over the number of Entries received.

Notification of Potential Prize Winners:  Sponsor or its designated representative will make a minimum of two attempts to contact each eligible winner, by the method used to make the winning Entry, within five business days after the Draw Date when the winning Entry was selected.  If an eligible winner cannot be contacted within five business days after the Draw Date, or if there is a return of any notification as undeliverable, or does not abide by the requirements of a prize winner specified below, the prize winner will be disqualified (and if disqualified, will forfeit all rights to the prize) and an alternate winner for that prize will be selected using the same procedure specified above.

Requirements of Prize Winners: All federal, state, and local taxes, if any, arising from or relating to any prize will be the sole responsibility of the prize winner.  No substitution or transfer of any prize will be allowed.  Upon delivery of any prize to a winner, Sponsor will be deemed to have awarded the prize to the winner, with the winner assuming full ownership and responsibility for the prize.

Release:  Each entrant, including each prize winner, agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor and its employees, agents, successors, and assigns from and against any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to the entrant’s participation in the Contest, including but not limited to any discovery that the entrant has not fully complied with any of these Official Rules or the applicable Social Media Platform rules (as applicable).  Each entrant agrees that Sponsor is not liable for any injury, loss, or damage of any kind arising from participation in the Contest or the acceptance, possession, or use of any prize.  Sponsor is not responsible for any typographical or other error in the printing of these Official Rules, administration of the Contest, or the announcement of any prize.  This release and indemnity will continue in force following the termination of the Contest and/or the awarding of any prizes.

Disputes:  Each entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or in connection with the Contest, or any prizes awarded, will be resolved individually, without resorting to any form of class action, and any judicial proceeding will take place in a federal or state court within the State of Colorado, County of Arapahoe; (2) any and all claims, judgments, and awards will be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering the Contest, but in no event attorneys' fees; and (3) under no circumstances will the entrant be permitted to obtain any award for, and the entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, and consequential damages, and any other damages, other than actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Contest, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules or provisions (whether of the State of Colorado or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Colorado.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.  If any provision of these Official Rules is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect and will be construed as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
