3.  HOW TO ENTER. Enter online at www.Facebook.com/DofinoCheese (the “Promotion Site”) during the Entry Period by clicking on the “Sweepstakes” tab at the Promotion Site, accessing the Promotion App through that tab and completing the online entry form completely and submitting the online form.  Alternate Means of Entry (“AMOE”).  Eligible entrants may alternatively submit an entry by mail without entering via the Promotion Site.  To enter by mail, legibly print or type on a 3” x 5” card the following information:  entrant’s name, address, telephone number, email address of entrant and the words “Dofino Cheese Promotion Entry.”  The completed card should be mailed to Dofino Cheese Promotion c/o Arla Foods, Inc., Attention: LISVE, 645 Martinsville Road, Basking Ridge, NJ 07920 (the “Promotion Address”). Entries must be postmarked during an Entry Period and received within seven days thereafter to be eligible.  Limit one AMOE entry per outer envelope or mailer.   One who enters the Promotion is sometimes referred to as an “Entrant” in these Rules. Only one (1) entry is permitted per person total during the Promotion (total, not each Entry Period) by the methods specified in this paragraph (“Registration Entries”), regardless of means of entry. Submitting multiple entries in the Promotion by the means referred to in this paragraph will disqualify you from the Promotion.  Registration Entries not selected in a Weekly Drawing will roll over into subsequent remaining Weekly Drawings.

 

Additional Entries for Sharing with Friends When They Submit a Registration Entry Via Your Unique LinkEligible entrants may obtain up to five (5) additional entries in an Entry Period when their friends register for the Promotion using a unique link associated with you which is available from the Promotion Site.  You may obtain a unique link in the Promotion App accessed through the Promotion Site by entering the requested information which will enable you to share information regarding the Promotion via Twitter, email and/or with one of your Facebook friends (a person for whom you provide information is referred to as a “Friend”).  If a Friend registers for the Promotion via your unique link you will receive one (1) additional entry in the Promotion in the Entry Period corresponding to the date on which your Friend registered.  If you provide contact information for a Friend, your Friend will receive a message inviting your Friend to visit the Promotion Site and participate in the Promotion.  The message to your Friend may identify you as having recommended that the message be sent.  Your Friend must have a Facebook account to participate in the Promotion via the Promotion Site.  You may only provide the contact information (Facebook Name, email or Twitter handle) of a Friend with whom you have an existing personal relationship and from whom you have received permission to provide such information to Sponsor, and who would not consider a message via Facebook, Twitter or email or otherwise from you or Sponsor to be spam.  A total of five (5) additional entries per Entry Period can be obtained by participating in the “share with a friend” means of entry (above) or the “Sharing With A Friend” option (described below) available to those entering via the AMOE, regardless of means of entry. You cannot utilize both the “share with a friend” means of entry via the Promotion App and the “Sharing with a Friend” AMOE in the same Entry Period.  In any Entry Period, those who wish to obtain up to five (5) additional entries in an Entry Period for “Sharing With A Friend” may do so by legibly printing or typing on a 3” x 5” card the words “Sharing With A Friend,” your name, address, phone number and email and mailing the completed card either (a) along with the AMOE entry, or (b) subsequently in a separate envelope to Dofino Cheese Promotion, Attn: Sharing With A Friend, at the Promotion Address. Each completed card (up to five (5) total per Entry Period) will result in an additional entry in the Entry Period corresponding to the postmark date of the envelope /mailer (if legible) provided such envelope / mailer is received within seven days of postmark, or if received thereafter or the postmark is not legible, then in the Entry Period corresponding to the day received.  Limit five “Sharing With A Friend” additional entries per outer envelope or mailer and only entries from one Entrant may be submitted in an outer envelope or mailer.   Additional entries obtained via the process described in this paragraph will not carry over into subsequent Entry Periods.  However, additional entries obtained via the process described in this paragraph, up to a total of five (5) in the aggregate across all Entry Periods, will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing. Accordingly, an Entrant may have up to a total of six (6) entries in the Grand Prize drawing.

 

Sponsor assumes no responsibility for any computer, software, online, Internet or technological malfunctions or for lost, late, stolen, incomplete, illegible, inaccurate, undelivered, delayed, mutilated, postage-due or misdirected mail, correspondence, requests, claims or other errors or problems in connection with or relating to the Promotion.   All entries become the property of the Sponsor and none will be returned.  Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any person who, in Sponsor’s sole judgment, tampers or attempts to tamper with the entry procedure or the Promotion Site or does not comply with these Rules.

 

4. Winner Selection and Notification.

Tentative Weekly Prize winners will be selected by a random drawing on or about the dates specified in the chart above.  A tentative Grand Prize winner will be selected by a random drawing on or about October 21, 2013. Such tentative winners will be notified via email within a week of the applicable drawing.  A notified person, at his or her sole discretion, may disclaim a prize by not claiming such prize or by not completing and returning to Sponsor, the Sponsor’s Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability and Publicity Release within seven (7) days of attempted notification and in such case an alternate tentative prize winner of such prize will be selected and this process will be repeated until such time as a tentative prize winner completes and returns to Sponsor the Sponsor’s Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability and Publicity Release within seven (7) days of attempted notification.  At such time, subject to verification by Sponsor, a tentative prize winner will be deemed a prize winner.  Except where prohibited by law, each prize winner further grants to Sponsor, without further consideration, the irrevocable, perpetual right to use such prize winner’s name, photograph, voice, likeness and city of residence for purposes of advertising or promoting and publicizing the efforts and activities of the Sponsor and the Promotion, worldwide in any media now existing or hereafter developed, including but not limited to the world wide web and social media, without notice, approval or review by Entrant.  Non-compliance or the return of any prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.  Failure to have an active email address will result in forfeiture. In no case shall the Sponsor be liable in any manner where a winner has not received notification sent from the Sponsor or where the Sponsor fails to receive a response from the tentative winner or winner as required.  Winners must provide their physical mailing address within the 50 United States or DC to receive prize.
