Official Rules for Survey Sweepstakes
NO PURCHASE OR SURVEY COMPLETION NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.
These official rules (“Official Rules”) apply to survey sweepstakes conducted by MSG Sports & Entertainment Holdings, LLC and/or its related entities (“Sponsor”). Each such sweepstakes (individually and collectively, “Sweepstakes”) will be announced via an email (“Sweepstakes Email”). A Sweepstakes Email will be sent to select, intended recipients and include the applicable methods of entry, entry deadline, drawing date, prize(s)/value(s) and a link to these Official Rules. All information contained in a Sweepstakes Email is incorporated herein by reference.
ELIGIBILITY: Open Only to Legal Residents OF THE fifty (50) UNITED STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, who are at least 18 years of age and the direct and intended recipient of the sweepstakes email. Void Where Prohibited. Employees and other workers, including temporary employees, freelancers and independent contractors (and their immediate families (parent, child, spouse or sibling and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and those living in their same households, whether or not related) of Sponsor, its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries and advertising and promotion agencies are not eligible to enter or win. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of the judges and/or Sponsor, which are binding and final on matters relating to each Sweepstakes. Each Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.
TO ENTER: There are two (2) ways to enter a Sweepstakes. 1) Survey Completion: prior to the entry deadline for the applicable Sweepstakes, click through the survey link in the applicable Sweepstakes Email, answer the survey questions and complete the Sweepstakes entry form in its entirety to be entered for a chance to win. 2) By Mail: To enter a Sweepstakes without completing the survey, hand-print your full name, date of birth, e-mail address, street address (including city, state and zip code) and day and evening telephone numbers, and the name of the applicable Sweepstakes on one side of a 3”x5” index card and mail it in an envelope with proper postage affixed to: Survey Sweepstakes Entry, Consumer Insights/Analytics, Two Pennsylvania Plaza, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10121. Mail-in entries must be postmarked by the entry deadline specified in the applicable Sweepstakes Email and received no later than 7 days thereafter. Limit one (1) entry per person/email address/household per Sweepstakes, regardless of method of entry. Entries received from any person or e-mail address or household in excess of the stated limitation will be void. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated or mechanical means or by any means which subvert the entry process are void. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
DRAWING(S): Potential winner(s) will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received, and notified by mail, phone, and/or e-mail within ten (10) days following the conclusion of the applicable Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Potential winner(s) may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release, within the time frame specified by Sponsor. As applicable, if such documents are not returned within the specified time period, the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, such winner will forfeit their prize and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner is an eligible minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, such winner’s prize may be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be responsible for fulfilling all requirements imposed on winners as set forth herein.
PRIZE(S): The number and approximate retail value of prizes awarded in any Sweepstakes will vary and will be set forth in the Sweepstakes Email. Prizes include only what is specified in the prize description. Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. Prizes may not be substituted, transferred, assigned or redeemed for cash except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute a prize (or portion thereof) with one of comparable or greater value. Certain prizes may be awarded as gift cards, gift certificates or vouchers, all of which shall be subject to the terms and conditions printed thereon. Winners of concert/event tickets must be available to attend such concert/event on the date specified or another winner may be selected by Sponsor, and seat locations will be determined by Sponsor, if and as applicable. Winner and, if applicable, winner’s guest, must comply with all venue rules and regulations. A minor winner of event tickets must attend such event with his/her parent or legal guardian or other adult as authorized by the minor’s parent or legal guardian. Sponsor will not consider or fulfill any requests for additional or alternate prizes, including but not limited to requests for additional tickets, upgrades and/or alternate dates or seating. Winners are responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes, if any, as well as any other costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided. Unless otherwise stated in the Sweepstakes Email, travel, meals, accommodation or any other costs associated with prize acceptance and use are not included as part of prize and are the sole responsibility of the winner. If any prize-related event is cancelled or postponed or any prize or prize component cannot be provided by Sponsor for any reason, no compensation or substitution will be provided; however, if applicable, the remainder of prize package will be awarded. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. With respect to any Sweepstakes governed by these Official Rules, there is a limit of one (1) prize per person, household, email address in any ninety (90) day period.
