Note About Twitter. The Released Parties are not responsible for any changes or unavailability of the Twitter service that may interfere with the Sweepstakes (including any limitations, any restrictions, or any conditions on Sponsor’s ability to use Twitter for the Sweepstakes as set forth herein that are not acceptable to Sponsor) or ability of entrant to timely enter, receive notices or communicate with Sponsor via Twitter, in which case Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may terminate or modify the Sweepstakes. In the event of a dispute concerning who submitted an entry, the entry will be declared to have been made by the registered account holder of the e-mail address associated with the Twitter account for the potentially winning entrant, but only if that person meets all other eligibility criteria or if that person is the approving parent or legal guardian of a minor participant who meets all of the eligibility criteria. A registered account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Potential winners may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the registered account holder for the e-mail address associated with the Twitter account for the potentially winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the entry will be deemed ineligible. Any damage made to the website or the Twitter service will be the responsibility of the registered account holder of the e-mail address for the Twitter account submitted at the time of entry. It is the potential winner’s responsibility to set his/her account settings to accept contacts by Sponsor and to timely check his/her Twitter account for any Sponsor direct messages or @Replies.

Prizes. We will award 2 prizes during the Sweepstakes Period, each consisting of one ticket to Voice 2014 in Anaheim, California ($757 approximate retail value or “ARV”).

The total ARV of all prizes is $1514. The winner will be responsible for paying all costs and expenses related to the prizes that are not specifically mentioned, including, but not limited to, taxes, and any other expenses that might reasonably be incurred by the winner in receiving or using the prize.

Selection of Potential Winner. The potential prize winners will be selected at random for each prize. We must receive eligible entries during the Sweepstakes Period for entries to be eligible for selection. The drawing for each prize will be held the day following the end of the Sweepstakes Period. We will notify the potential winner by sending him/her a Direct Message to his/her Twitter account within 2 business days following the drawing, and he/she will be required to sign an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to the direct message function that may interfere with the Sweepstakes or ability of entrant to timely receive messages from Sponsor. We will select an alternative potential winner if the potential winner does not claim the prize within 72 hours of notification, or meet the eligibility criteria. Non-winning entries for one drawing will be discarded and will not be eligible for subsequent drawings. The prizes will be awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). In the event a potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, we will award the prize to such minor’s parent or legal guardian identified by the potential winner. The parent or legal guardian must sign and return all required documentation, including verification of identity and status as parent or legal guardian.

Conditions of Participation. The winner will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release as requested by Sponsor prior to receiving any portion of the prize. Failure to return any required document by the date requested by Sponsor will render the potential winner ineligible to receive the prize. If any documentation is not returned by the specified dates or if a potential winner is deemed ineligible prior to the prize being awarded, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, award the prize to the next alternative potential winner selected at random from all entries for the applicable drawing.

Odds of Winning. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each drawing.

Release. By participating in this Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless Audible, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, related companies, advisors, advertising/promotion agencies, distributors, vendors, and prize suppliers, as well as their directors, officers, and employees (the “Released Parties”) from and against any and all claims, liability, costs, losses, damages or injuries of any kind arising out of or related to the entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes and/or related to any prize or component of any prize.

The authorized account holder of the e-mail account associated with the Twitter account used to enter the Sweepstakes at the actual time of entry will be deemed to be the entrant and must comply with these Official Rules in the event of a dispute as to entries submitted by multiple users having the same e-mail account. The authorized email account holder is the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail address for the domain associated with the e-mail address submitted by entrants. No greater than the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules will be awarded. If any technical errors occur in the selection of potential prize winners or if more prizes are claimed than the number of prizes being awarded as provided in these Official Rules, we may award the applicable prizes by random selection from among all eligible, verifiable claimants.
