*NOTE: This call-to-action is subject to change at Sponsor’s sole discretion. The Promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Facebook.  Facebook is a registered trademark, which is herein used for purposes of description only.  Such use is not intended to suggest or imply the sponsorship, endorsement, or the approval of this Promotion by the owners of said trademarks.

Sponsor’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for this Promotion.  ENTRIES ARE LIMITED TO ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON.  Subsequent attempts made by the same individual to submit multiple entries by using multiple Facebook accounts, or otherwise, may be disqualified.  Entries are void if they contain typographical, printing or other errors.  No entries from automatically generated e-mail addresses or Facebook accounts shall be accepted.  Use of any automated system, such as script, macro, 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 shall 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 Promotion, each Entrant (or if Entrant is a Minor, said Entrant’s parent or legal guardian) gives consent for Sponsor to obtain and deliver his/her name, address and other information to third parties for the purpose of administering this Promotion 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 (defined below) of the e-mail address associated with the Facebook account of the entry, 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 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.


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 Promotion; 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: One (1) winner (the “Winner”) will be randomly selected from a list of Entrants who submitted a valid, qualifying entry by following the instructions per Paragraph 2, subject to eligibility verification by Sponsor. A potential winner will be drawn and notified at or around 12:00 p.m. PT on February 5, 2018.  The potential winner will be contacted, within twenty-four (24) hours of the winner announcement, using the Facebook account or e-mail address provided with the entry.  It is Entrant’s responsibility to timely check Entrant’s Facebook account or e-mail for the winner announcement.  Sponsor is not responsible for any failure of delivery of notice if Entrant provides an incorrect e-mail address.


  1. PRIZES: The prize will consist of an Infinite “TOP SEED” album (the “Prize”). Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”): $26 plus taxes and fees.  The ARV of the Prize is based on information available to Sponsor.


Prize details not specified herein will be determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion.  Sponsor is not responsible for, and the Winner will not receive, the difference (if any) between the actual value of the Prizes 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 the Prize by the Winner will be allowed.  The Prize may not be sold, bartered, or exchanged.


Any applicable taxes, fees, or costs and expenses associated with a Prize not specified herein as being provided are the Winner’s sole responsibility (or the sole responsibility of the Winner’s parent or legal guardian if the Winner is a Minor).  If applicable, 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, 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 potential winner will be announced on Sponsor’s Facebook page and/or via the official KCON website (http://www.kconusa.com). The potential winner will be notified by Facebook private message or e-mail (via the e-mail address provided by the Entrant) on or about February 5, 2018.  After notification of winning, the potential winner shall be required to complete, sign, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and, except where prohibited, a Publicity Release Form (and a completed IRS W-9 form) within two (2) days of issuance.  A Minor Entrant without a valid Consent Form submitted upon entry is not eligible to win the Promotion.  All documents required as set forth above may be referred to herein as “Required Documents.”  The Required Documents may request information of the Winner, including full name, home phone number, e-mail address, date of birth, and parent/legal guardian’s name and e-mail address, if applicable.


Awarding of a 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 eligible Entrant.  If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.  If requested by Sponsor, Entrants 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 the Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may decide, in its sole discretion, to award such applicable Prize to an alternate eligible Entrant or to not award such Prize.


  1. ODDS: Odds of winning the Prizes depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
