Agreement to Official Rules: By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes.
How to Enter: To enter the Sweepstakes online you must follow the official rules as posted on the Wileycraft.com blog site during the period specified for each Sweepstakes on the blog, (the “Promotion Period”). Through on-screen instructions you will be asked to provide information including your first and last name, date of birth, gender and email address. You can enter once during each Promotion Period.
LIMIT: one entry per person. Entries in excess of this limit will be void. All entries for a Sweepstakes must be received online during the applicable Promotion Period. All entries become the exclusive property of Sweepstakes Sponsor, and none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible entries, which will be disqualified. Use of any automated system to submit entries is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any online entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
Drawings: The Grand Prize Drawing will be conducted in accordance with these Official Rules on or about the date indicated in the blog. Each random drawing will be conducted from amongst all eligible entries received in accordance with these Official Rules by Sponsor, whose decisions as to the administration of the Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winners are final and binding. Entrant selected must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner will be notified by email. Potential winner must accept a prize within three business days of notification by email and if receipt of such email is not confirmed by Sponsor within three business days, potential winner must contact Sponsor at the telephone number indicated in the notification email. Any winner notification not responded to or returned as undeliverable may result in prize forfeiture and an alternate potential winner will be selected from the remaining eligible entries. The potential prize winner may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within 10 days of notification. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, prize is returned as undeliverable, or fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within the required time period, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award his/her prize to an alternate potential winner. Only three alternate potential winners will be selected after which the prize will remain unawarded. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
Prizes: The winner(s) will receive the prizes indicated in the blog for each Sweepstakes.
Approximate Retail value : The approximately retail value of the prize(s) for each Sweepstakes will be indicated in the blog.
No substitution, assignment or transfer of prize permitted, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize or prize component with another of comparable or greater value. Winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use.

General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel or modify any Sweepstakes if fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of a Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately damage any web site or undermine the legitimate operation of any Sweepstakes is a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
