If Sponsor is unable to contact any Potential Winner or if the Potential Winner fails to comply with these Rules or applicable law, the Potential Winner’s Prize is forfeited and an alternative winner will be randomly selected.
The Prize will be awarded within approximately seven (7) business days after the winner is verified by Sponsor and all "Winner Requirements" (detailed in section 8 below) have been met.
- PRIZE AND THE APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE ("ARV"): Upon completion of the Winner Requirements, one (1) Potential Winner will receive (i) round-trip economy class air transportation for the Potential Winner and one (1) guest to within the United States from a major airport near the Potential Winner’s residence (as selected in Sponsor’s sole discretion); (ii) accommodations (one (1) room, double occupancy) for one (1) consecutive night for up to two (2) people at a hotel in the selected city, Nashville, TN, within the United States (in Sponsor’s sole discretion) two (2) invitations to the Influencer Event hosted by Lauren James, two (2) $250 Lauren James E-Gift Cards for winner and guest between February 13, 2019 and February 14, 2019; The Approximate Retail Value ("ARV") of the Prize is $2,500 for two (2) $500 Lauren James Influencer Event value including invitations, gift bag, experience, food and drink; two (2) $250 Lauren James Gift Cards and approximately $1,000 in travel expenses and hotel accomodations. The actual ARV value depends on Potential Winner’s place of residence and costs and availability of airfare and hotel at the time of booking and travel and may be substantially higher or lower than the stated ARV. The ARV represents the Sponsor’s good faith determination of the maximum retail value thereof. The ARV of the Prize is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Rules and the date the Prize is awarded or redeemed. All costs, including federal, state and local taxes, insurance, and other expenses not expressly listed above, including, but not limited to, taxes, tips, entertainment, transfers, as well as seat assignment or baggage fees determined by selected airline and any costs/expenses related to participation in the Sweepstakes or acceptance or use of the Prize are Potential Winner’s sole responsibility. Potential Winner and his/her Guest are responsible for all in-room charges (e.g., mini-bar, movies), telephone calls, meals, beverages, gratuities, upgrades, personal incidentals, amenities, and any other fees and expenses not specifically mentioned in these Rules. Potential Winner will be required to provide a major credit card upon hotel check-in or prior thereto and all in-room charges will be charged to the credit card. Any damage to the room, and/or any other venue related to the Prize, attributed to the Potential Winner and/or his/her Guest will be the responsibility of the Potential Winner. Other restrictions may apply. Potential Winner and Guest agree that they accept the Prize at their own risk. Potential Winner and Guest must travel together on the same itinerary, including the same departure date, destination and return date and must have valid travel documents (e.g., valid government issued photo ID and/or Passport) prior to departure. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the Prize. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates or similar items. Once travel commences, no unscheduled stopovers are permitted; if an unscheduled stopover occurs, full fare will be charged from stopover point for the remaining segments, including return, of the trip. Sponsor is not liable for any expenses incurred as a consequence of flight cancellation/delay. All air transportation tickets are subject to the vagaries of flight variation, work stoppages and schedule or route changes. Neither Potential Winner nor Guest may assign or transfer the prize to another person. Potential Winner will not receive cash or any other form of compensation if actual travel costs are less than the ARV in these Rules. Sponsor reserves the right to structure the travel route, travel dates, and select hotels in its sole discretion. Prize may not be combined with any other offer and travel may not qualify for frequent flyer miles or any other promotional benefit. If the Potential Winner is unable or unwilling to accept the Prize, or any portion thereof, as stated, the Prize may be forfeited in its entirety and may be awarded to an alternate winner at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Once Potential Winner has provided Sponsor with Guest’s name in connection with bookings for travel, Potential Winner may not change his/her Guest. All details and other restrictions of the Prize not specified in these Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute an alternative prize, in whole or in part, of equal or greater monetary value if a prize becomes unavailable or cannot be awarded as described for any reason. Prize pictured in advertising, marketing or promotional materials is for illustrative purposes only. SPONSOR MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND REGARDING THE PRIZE, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND THE POTENTIAL WINNER SHALL TAKE THE PRIZE "AS IS" AND AT HIS OR HER OWN RISK.

The Potential Winner will be required to execute and return a federal 1099 tax form, as well as an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability/Publicity Release (the "Price Claim Documents") within two (2) days following the date of attempted notification. If a selected winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, fails to claim the Prize, and/or fails to return the Price Claim Documents within the applicable time period, Sponsor may elect to disqualify the selected winner, who will then forfeit his or her right to receive the Prize. In the event a Potential Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may (in its sole discretion) award the Prize to an alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Entries or not award the Prize. Arrangements for delivery of the Prize will be made after winner validation. Potential Winner's travel companion ("Guest") must be at least 18 years of age and the age of majority in his/her state/province or jurisdiction of primary residence unless the Potential Winner is such Guest’s parent or legal guardian.
