Sponsor’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Sweepstakes.  ENTRIES ARE LIMITED TO ONE (1) ENTRY PER SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT PER PLATFORM (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram).  Subsequent attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple social media accounts on the same platform, or otherwise, may be disqualified.  Entries are void if they contain typographical, printing or other errors.  No entries from automatically generated e-mail addresses shall be accepted.  Use of any automated system, such as script, macro, bot, or other automated means, to participate or generate entries (or otherwise assist in participation) is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification.  Entries that are mutilated, altered, lost, late, inaccurate, incomplete, tampered with, unintelligible, illegible, forged, or otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules will also result in disqualification.  Any false or deceptive entries or acts will render all entries by an Entrant ineligible.  The envelope containing a mail-in entry must not include entries for other persons (i.e., no bulk submissions).

 

As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, each Entrant (or if Entrant is a minor, said Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) gives consent for Sponsor to obtain and deliver his or her name, address and other information to third parties for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and complying with applicable laws, regulations and rules.  In the event of a dispute over the identity of an Entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address, which the Entrant will have the obligation to establish.  The “authorized account holder” is defined as the person assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider and/or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses.  All materials submitted become the exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned.  In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.  Illegible and/or incomplete entries and entries submitted by Entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void.

The Sponsor and any and all Internet server(s) and access provider(s), and each of their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, parent corporations, retailers and advertising and promotion agencies, and all of their officers, directors, shareholders, employees and agents are not responsible for: any incorrect or inaccurate entry information; human errors; technical malfunctions; failures, omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone or mobile network, computer and mobile online systems, equipment, servers, providers, or software, including without limitation any injury or damage to participant’s or any other person’s computer or mobile devices relating to or resulting from participation in the Sweepstakes; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, computer, mobile device, or electronic malfunction or traffic congestion on telephone lines or the Internet or any website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors; any entries which are late, lost, incomplete, misdirected, stolen, mutilated, illegible, or postage due, or any combination thereof.

 

  1. WINNER SELECTION: Five (5) winners will be randomly selected from the list of Entrants who submitted a valid, qualifying entry by following the instructions per Paragraph 2 (each a “Winner,” and collectively the “Winners”). Winners will receive the Prizes described below, subject to eligibility verification by Sponsor.  The drawing date for the Sweepstakes is on July 8, 2019.  The Winners will be announced on or about July 8, 2019, at or about 12:00 p.m. EDT/9:00 a.m. PDT on kconusa.com.  The potential Winners will be contacted, within twenty-four (24) hours of the announcement, by the social media accounts provided at the time of concert ticket purchase or with the mail-in entry.  It is Entrant’s responsibility to timely check Entrant’s social media account for the winner announcement.  Sponsor is not responsible for any failure of delivery of notice if Entrant provides an incorrect e-mail address.  ODDS OF WINNING DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES RECEIVED.

 

  1. PRIZES: Each Winner will receive either one (1) audience all-access pass at the Event for participating artist engagement sessions OR one autographed merchandise item (the “Prize(s)”). Sponsor will randomly select which Prize each Winner will receive. Approximate Retail Value (ARV): $90 each per all-access audience pass, or $30 each per autographed merchandise item.  The ARV of the Prizes is based on information available to Sponsor as of June 18, 2019.  All transportation and travel costs to the Event are the sole responsibility of the Winner.  Sponsor shall not be responsible or liable for any additional costs, such as meals, incurred by the Winner.  Prize details not specified herein will be determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

 

Sponsor is not responsible for, and the Winners will not receive, the difference (if any) between the actual value of the Prize at the time of award and the stated ARV in these Official Rules.   The Prize has no monetary value and is not transferable, assignable, or redeemable for cash.  Except as otherwise specified herein, no substitution for a Prize by the Winners will be allowed.  Prize may not be sold, bartered, or exchanged by the Winners.

 

Any applicable taxes, fees, or other costs and expenses associated with a Prize not specified herein as being provided are the Winners’ sole responsibility.

 

Upon Sponsor’s request, the Winner (or the Winner’s parent or legal guardian if the Winner is a Minor) shall provide tax information, such as a valid social security number, before a Prize is released, regardless of whether the Prize, in whole or in part, is used.  An IRS Form 1099 (Miscellaneous Income) may be issued in the name of the Winner (or Winner’s parent/legal guardian), for the actual value of the Prize received.  Entrants waive the right to assert as a cost of winning any Prize any and all costs of verification and redemption or travel to claim a Prize and any liability or publicity that might arise from claiming or seeking to claim a Prize.

 

  1. WINNER NOTIFICATION; PRIZE CLAIM: The Winner will be announced on kconusa.com and will be notified by social media (via the social media account provided by the Entrant) on or about July 8, 2019.  After notification of winning, the potential Winner (and his/her parent or legal guardian if the potential Winner is a Minor) shall be required to complete, sign, and return a Prize Winner Affidavit and Release of Liability, a completed IRS W-9 form, and, except where prohibited, a Publicity Release Form within seventy-two (72) hours of issuance.  All documents required as set forth above may be referred to herein as “Required Documents.”  The Required Documents may request information of the Winners, including full name, home phone number, e-mail address, and date of birth.  If the Entrant is a Minor, and a Consent Form has not yet been received, the parent/legal guardian(s) of the Entrant must indicate his/her consent to his/her Minor’s entry and participation in the Sweepstakes.  A Minor Entrant without a valid Consent Form is not eligible to win the Sweepstakes.

 

A potential Winner’s failure to respond to the notification, failure to return all Required Documents by July 18, 2019, or failure to be in compliance with these Official Rules in any way, may result in the potential Winner being disqualified, and an alternate Winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

 

Awarding of the Prize is subject to the Winner’s acceptance of, and compliance with, these Official Rules.  Non-compliance may result in disqualification and award of the Prize to an alternate Winner.  If any potential Winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential Winner may be disqualified and an alternate potential Winner may be selected.  If requested by Sponsor, Entrant must show photo identification for Sponsor to verify that the eligibility requirements are met.  If any Prize notification or Prize is returned for any reason, or if Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may decide, in its sole discretion, to award such applicable Prize to an alternate eligible Entrant or, if time does not permit (in Sponsor’s opinion), to not award such Prize.

 

  1. ODDS: Odds of winning the Prize depend upon the total number of eligible entries received and the timing of the entries submitted.

 

  1. DISQUALIFICATION: Sponsor may disqualify an Entrant (and cause the Prize that has been awarded (if any) to be forfeited) due to any of the following: (a) the Entrant fails to comply with any of the terms, conditions, restrictions, or limitations of these Official Rules (as determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion); (b) the Entrant fails to respond to the winner notification or any other notice within seventy-two (72) hours after its transmission; (c) the Entrant fails to complete, sign, and return the Required Documents within seventy-two (72) hours after its receipt; (d) the inability of Sponsor to contact a potential Winner or the return of any winner notification, notice, or Prize as undeliverable; or (e) an Entrant’s failure to maintain his/her behavior in accordance with all applicable laws and generally-accepted social practices in connection with participation in any Sweepstakes-related or Prize-related activity, including, without limitation, if the Entrant (i) is uncooperative or disruptive; (ii) annoys, threatens, or harasses any other person; or (iii) may or does cause damage to person, property, or the reputation of Sponsor.
