The applicable time zone is Central Time.  ENTRANTS ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE CORRESPONDING TIME ZONE IN THEIR RESPECTIVE JURISDICTIONS; SPONSOR DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY AND RESPONSIBILITY RELATING THERETO. The Promotion may be shortened or extended by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion (by posting notice on the Sponsor’s Instagram page), or may be cancelled, modified or terminated based on the exigencies of the circumstances.

ENTRY DETAILS/HOW TO ENTER:  In your Instagram (“Social Media Platform”) account, your privacy settings must be set to public and cannot be set to “off” or “private”. Entrants must (i) complete and submit all the required information, (ii) follow all steps below, and (iii) use the same Instagram account and handle/username in connection with their Entry. Failure to strictly comply with these specific requirements will result in immediate disqualification and such Entry will not be considered.

To enter, during the Promotion Period, visit Sponsor’s Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/rugdoctor/ and follow Rug Doctor on Instagram, post one (1) original photograph or :15 sec video that clearly, appropriately and sufficiently shows us your outside mess that sorely needs the help of a Rug Doctor® Pro pressure washer, provide a short comment providing context for the mess and use #ShowUsYourMess #contest and @RugDoctor with your submission (“Entry”). Videos limited to :15 seconds.

By way of example, your Entry may show us a mess that is your stained garage floor, a paint-peeling fence, a dirty roof, or similar situation suitable for help by a Rug Doctor pressure washer treatment, usually outside of your home. Any Entry depicting a mess that is not perceived (in Sponsor’s sole discretion) as capable of being appropriately tackled with a Rug Doctor® Pro pressure washer and related equipment and products, such as a superfund site or an oil slick from a leaking tanker, or an inside mess such as a teenager’s untidy room, piles of dirty laundry or dishes, etc. will not be eligible. Further, any property featured in the Entry must be non-commercial, residential property owned by Entrant, or if not owned by Entrant, Entrant must have express permission of the property’s owner to submit the Entry for the Promotion and have full permission and ability to allow fulfillment of the Grand prize at/on the property, if adjudged the winner. The aforementioned conditions also apply to all Prize Recipients (defined below) selected by Grand prize winner to receive the prize. Your Entry in whole and in part must be compliant with these Rules.  Any submissions deemed inappropriate will be disqualified. Limit one (1) Entry per person.

Failure to follow all steps will void Entry. Once submitted, Entry cannot be modified, deleted or cancelled. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Promotion may be advertised via more than one Social Media Platform; however, entries will only be accepted on the Social Media Platform specified herein.

CONDITIONS OF ENTRY: Entries may only be submitted by a single registered Social Media account user; group or commercial submissions are not permissible.  Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same device, Social Media account, IP or email address. By entering, you agree to be contacted by Sponsor (and its authorized representatives) with communications and reminders relating to the Promotion. Sponsor has the right to verify Entries and/or Entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, and on the basis of the investigation, to disqualify any Entry/Entrant at any time during or after the Promotion Period. Without limitation, Sponsor reserves the unfettered right NOT to award any prize, in whole or in part, if doing so may result in public disrepute, scandal, or may have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, this Promotion, or any of Sponsor’s brand, products or services (as solely determined by Sponsor in its absolute discretion). Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor shall have the right at any time, where necessary, to undertake all action including, but not limited to, voiding/cancelling the Promotion, subject a winner to disqualification, prize forfeiture and/or immediate prize return (from a previously confirmed winner, if applicable) and/or require further information as is reasonable to protect itself or any one of the Promotion Entities against fraudulent or invalid claims, potential public scandal, ridicule, or disrepute in awarding the prize to any Entry, Entrant or winner. Incomplete, invalid, illegal, unsuitable, or otherwise non-compliant Entries (as determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion) will not be eligible. If, upon review, Sponsor (or its authorized representative) is unable to determine that an Entrant/Entry is compliant, or reasonably suspects that he/she/it is not compliant in whole or in part, the Entry as a whole (and Entrant) may be disqualified.  Proof that you uploaded an Entry does not constitute proof or evidence that it was received within the Promotion Period or eligible for the Promotion. Entries submitted via any other Entry method, platform, portal, app than stated will not be accepted.

Entrants may not enter through an on-line sweepstakes/contest club (paid or unpaid, or similar method), bots, robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar Entry methods or agents, with multiple or false identities, accounts, devices, e-mail and/or street addresses, nor shall Entrants use any other device or artifice to enter or participate. Any Entrant who is suspected of cheating, using fraudulent means, unauthorized Entry methods, attempting to participate multiple times with multiple e-mail, accounts, and/or addresses under multiple or false identities, or engaging in or benefitting, directly or indirectly, from such artifice or artifice of any other kind, as determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, will void all such Entries, and disqualify any Entrant suspected of using/benefitting from such methods.  In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an online Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address and/or handle used in connection with the Entry will be deemed to be the Entrant.  Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder, or otherwise eligible. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to an email address by an Internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
