HOW IT WORKS: To participate in the Sweepstakes, go to win.tdecu.org (the “Website”), follow the on-screen instructions to complete the entry form in its entirety and select which of the available games you are interested in attending, and submit your entry to receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes.      

Except as contemplated in these Official Rules, personal information collected in connection with this Sweepstakes will be used in accordance with Sponsor’s Privacy Policy located at URL.  Limit one (1) entry per person and per email address per week.  For purposes of these Official Rules, a “week” is defined as any seven (7) day period during the Sweepstakes Period beginning each Sunday at 12:00:01 a.m. CT and ending the following Saturday at 11:59:59 p.m. CT.

The Website’s database clock will be the official timekeeper for online entries in this Sweepstakes.  The Sweepstakes Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes.  The Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. 

In the event of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, entry will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address provided at time of registration. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. 

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  On or about each of the Entry Period Drawing Dates indicated in the chart above, two (2) potential prize winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received for the corresponding Entry Period. The potential prize winners will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail, using contact information provided or collected at the time of entry.  Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within forty-eight (48) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion, and time permitting, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.  If any potential prize 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 prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected.  The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the corresponding Entry Period.

Some restrictions may apply.  Sponsor shall have no responsibility or liability for cancellations, delays, or any other change by any company or person providing any element of the Prize due to reasons beyond Sponsor’s control and is not responsible or liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence thereof.  In the event that winner elects to attend the Prize event without a guest, that portion of the Prize will be deemed forfeited and winner shall receive no additional compensation.  Winners and guests agree to abide by all rules, terms, conditions, restrictions and entry requirements imposed by the venue, including, but not limited to, any applicable social distancing, proof of vaccination, and masking requirements.
