Terms and conditions for the Vrbo Partner Sweepstakes (the "Sweepstakes")
By entering the Sweepstakes, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions (these "Terms and Conditions"). Promotional materials relating to the Sweepstakes, including all information on how to enter the Sweepstakes, also form part of these Terms and Conditions. In the event of any conflict between any terms referred to in such promotion materials and these Terms and Conditions, these Terms and Conditions take precedence.
1. The promoter of this Sweepstakes is HomeAway.com Inc. d/b/a Vrbo, 11920 Alterra Parkway, Austin, Texas 78758
2. Participants must be at least 21 years old and legally resident within the United States. Employees and agents of Vrbo or any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies and their immediate families and members of their households, and anyone otherwise connected with operation or fulfillment of the Sweepstakes are not eligible to take part. Vrbo reserves the right to require participants to prove that they are eligible to enter the Sweepstakes. If the winner is found to be ineligible, Vrbo reserves the right to award the prize to another participant and to require the return of any prize already awarded.
3. The Sweepstakes commences at 1pm CST on April 28th and all entries must be received by 11:59pm CST May 2nd.
4. Entry to the Sweepstakes is free; no purchase is necessary. To enter the Sweepstakes, participants must enter via Instagram and follow @vrbo and @blueskiesretroresort, and comment on the post where the participant would go if they won. Entries submitted by any other means will not be accepted: only those submitted via the official method of entry.
5. Use of script, macro or any automated system to enter the Sweepstakes is prohibited and entries made (or which appear to have been made) using any such system may be treated as void. Any illegible, incomplete or fraudulent entries will be rejected. Participants may make a maximum of 1 entry into the Sweepstakes. Any entries in addition to this may be disqualified.
6. The prize to be won is one stay in a property in the United States, booked by Vrbo (“Vrbo Holiday Rental”) (“Prize”). The Prize must be taken on May 21st through May 23rd. The Vrbo Holiday Rental is subject to the usual booking terms and conditions of Vrbo and any terms and conditions (including conditions relating to damage) that may be applicable and which are enforced by the property owner of the Vrbo Holiday Rental, which shall be provided to the winner. For the avoidance of doubt, the winner will be responsible for any damage caused to the Vrbo Holiday Rental. The winner is responsible for paying all associated costs that are not specifically stated in these Terms and Conditions, including (where applicable) transport to and from the accommodation, meal costs, spending money, insurance and all other incidentals. The winner and their companions are responsible for obtaining valid passports and visas and complying with government travel guidelines. The winner is also personally responsible for any personal or incidental expenses and any VAT, national and/or local tax liabilities incurred in claiming or using the prize. If the winner's companion is a minor, the minor must be accompanied by his or her parent or legal guardian (at their own expense) if they are not the winner. The prize is as stated and is non-exchangeable and non-transferable. There is no cash or other alternative to the prize in whole or in part. By participating in the Sweepstakes, participants agree that the prize is awarded on an "as is" basis, and that neither Vrbo nor any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies, make any representations or warranties of any nature with respect to the prize.
7. The winner of the Sweepstakes will be the first name chosen at random from all complete, eligible, properly submitted entries received before the end of the applicable closing date.
8. The winner will be notified no later than 5pm CST on Monday, May 3rd by direct message on Instagram. The winner may be required to submit valid identification before receiving the Prize. The winner will be provided with instructions on how the Prize can be booked. If the winner has not claimed their prize by the date specified in the notification of winning, Vrbo reserves the right to conduct a further random draw to award the prize to another participant. We will only conduct three prize draws attempts. If we don’t have a winner after three draws, the prize will remain unawarded.
9. In the event that, for reasons beyond Vrbo’s reasonable control and not related to the winner, Vrbo is unable to award the prize as described in these Terms and Conditions, Vrbo reserves the right to award a prize of a similar nature and an equivalent value. In the event of a printing or other error resulting in there being more winners than prizes for the Sweepstakes, Vrbo reserves the right at any time to allocate the available prize through a further draw or to divide the prize or the value of the prize between the winners of the Sweepstakes.
10. By entering the Sweepstakes, participants agree to have their name and photograph featured in publicity materials as necessary to identify winners and comply with regulations regarding Sweepstakes. This includes making their name as the winner available on Instagram between May 3rd, 2021 and May 3rd, 2022. Details of the winner will also be made available to participants and the public on request by sending an email to email@example.com no later than June 3rd, 2021. Winners may be required to provide tax information to Sponsor.
11. Although the Sweepstakes may be featured on Instagram, the Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Instagram and you agree that Instagram is not liable in any way. You are providing information to Vrbo and not to Instagram. The information you provide will only be used for the purposes referred to in clause 13 below.
14. Save where it has been negligent, Vrbo will not be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from participants' entry into the Sweepstakes or their acceptance and/or use of the prize, or for technical, hardware or software failures, lost, faulty or unavailable network connections or difficulties of any kind that may limit or prohibit their ability to participate in the Sweepstakes. Vrbo will not be responsible for any lost, damaged, defaced, incomplete, illegible or otherwise unreadable entries. Proof of posting is not proof of receipt by Vrbo of any entries. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall in any way limit Vrbo's liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for any other matter where liability may not as a matter of law be limited.
15. Any participant who enters or attempts to enter the Sweepstakes in a manner, which in Vrbo's reasonable determination is contrary to these Terms and Conditions or by its nature is unjust to other entrants (including without limitation tampering with the operation of the Sweepstakes, cheating, hacking, deception or any other unfair playing practices such as intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrants or Vrbo and/or any of its agents or representatives) may be rejected from the Sweepstakes at Vrbo's sole discretion. Furthermore, where such actions have significantly impaired the Sweepstakes, Vrbo may, at its sole discretion, add further stages to the Sweepstakes as it deems reasonably necessary in order to resolve any problems arising as a result of such actions. 16. All Vrbo's decisions in relation to the Sweepstakes are final and Vrbo will not enter into any correspondence with participants.
17. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of Entrants and Sponsor in connection with this Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. Any action relating to this Contest shall be initiated only in the state and federal courts located in Travis County, Texas (USA).
