Each sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes”) is sponsored by Qardio, Inc. (“Sponsor”). Each Sweepstakes is governed by these official rules (“Official Rules”). By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees to abide by these Official Rules, including all eligibility requirements, and understands that the results of the Sweepstakes as determined by Sponsor and its agents, are final in all respects. Each Sweepstakes is subject to all federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law.

This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network or email provider. Any questions or comments regarding the promotion must be directed to Sponsor, not Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network or email provider.

Sweepstakes Period

The Sweepstakes begins on the dates and times specified for each Sweepstakes (“Submission Period”). All entries must be received on or before the end time on the closing date stated for each Submission Period.

How To Enter

You can enter a Sweepstakes through the Sponsor Facebook page, Twitter account, or any other medium specified by Sponsor. After submitting or posting the required information or post, the entrant will receive one (1) entry into the drawing. You may enter as many times as you wish, but this may not increase your chances of winning. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries Sponsor receives.

Winner Selection

All eligible entries received during the Submission Period will gathered into a database at the end of the Submission Period. No responsibility can be accepted for entries not received by Sponsor for whatever reason. A winner will be chosen at random. The winners will be announced on or about the date and time set forth in each Sweepstakes. Announcement and instructions for each prize will be sent to the e-mail address or Social Media account supplied with the potential prize winner’s entry. Each entrant is responsible for monitoring his/her e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter account for prize notification and receipt or other communications related to the Sweepstakes. If a potential prize winner cannot be reached by a Sponsor representative within fifteen (15) days, using the contact information provided at the time of entry, or if the prize is returned as undeliverable, that potential prize winner shall forfeit the prize and Sponsor may pick a replacement winner. Upon the request of the Sponsor, the potential winner may be required to return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release and Prize Acceptance Form and IRS W-9 form. If a potential winner fails to comply with these Official Rules, that potential winner will be disqualified. Prizes may not be awarded if an insufficient number of eligible entries are received.
