In the unlikely event that the initial broadcast of a particular Movie on Lifetime television network is postponed, cancelled, pre-empted or re-scheduled due to any reason beyond Sponsor's control (including but not limited to weather or other emergency, breaking news, or other cause interfering with or interrupting or preventing altogether the initial broadcast of a particular Movie as intended), Sponsor reserves the right to refrain from offering the Giveaway for the affected Movie until such time as the Movie (as applicable) is initially broadcast on Lifetime television network. Notice of such action will be posted on https://www.mylifetime.com/holidaygames (“Website”) and on the Lifetime television network.
Giveaway Entry: During the Promotion Period you will have the opportunity to play up to seven (7) virtual “bingo” cards† (each a “Card”, collectively “Cards”). Each Card is unique and may be used to enter the Giveaway for the corresponding Movie and Giveaway Period. During each Giveaway Period, navigate the internet to the Website. If you are not logged in, you will be asked to sign in and/or register. When prompted, enter your e-mail address (your e-mail address will only be used to contact you if you are the potential Prize winner) and check the box acknowledging that you have read and agree to these Official Rules. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GIVEAWAY AND SEE IF YOU ARE A POTENTIAL WINNER IF YOU DO NOT FIRST AGREE TO THE OFFICIAL RULES. Once logged in, click the button to play (“Entry”). You will automatically be taken to the Card page. By clicking the “Submit” button on the Card page you will be notified whether or not you are the potential winner of the prize for the applicable Movie/Giveaway Period. A notification will appear indicating whether or not you are the potential winner of the prize for the applicable Movie/Giveaway Period. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, PARTICIPATION IN THE GIVEAWAYS DOES NOT REQUIRE MATCHING SYMBOLS ON THE CARD OR PLAYING THE GAME OF BINGO. (If a notification of any kind is not displayed or such notification is garbled/corrupted/defective such that it is unclear whether or not an Entrant is the potential prize winner, such notification is void, with Sponsor and Administrator having no liability for same under any legal theory.)
YOUR ENTRY IS VALID FOR A CHANCE TO WIN THE PRIZE ONLY DURING THE CORRESPONDING MOVIE/GIVEAWAY PERIOD AND THE GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY PERIOD; FOR A CHANCE TO WIN ANOTHER PRIZE IN ANOTHER MOVIE/GIVEAWAY PERIOD AND ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN THE GRAND PRIZE, YOU MUST REGISTER AGAIN DURING THE CORRESPONDING MOVIE/GIVEAWAY PERIOD AND OBTAIN A CARD FOR THAT MOVIE/GIVEAWAY PERIOD.
ALL PRIZE CLAIMS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR/ADMINISTRATOR. SCREEN SHOTS ARE NOT PROOF OF WINNING; YOU ARE NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE WEBSITE SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL YOUR ELIGIBILITY, AND YOUR POTENTIALLY WINNING ENTRY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED BY SPONSOR/ADMINISTRATOR, AND YOU HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED BY SPONSOR/ADMINISTRATOR THAT SUCH VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.

The first person who submits an Entry (i.e., registers and plays a Card) at or after the randomly pre-selected winning time paired with the winning Card for a given Movie/Giveaway Period (as recorded by Sponsor’s computer) is the potential winner of the prize for that Movie/Giveaway Period, subject to verification. Entries, Cards and prize claims that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, jumbled, improperly recorded (or not recorded at all) or unintelligible for any reason, including, but not limited to, computer or network malfunction or congestion, are void and will not be accepted. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant or prize claimant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant or prize claimant. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant’s name, city, state, likeness, image, and/or voice for purposes of advertising, promotion, and publicity in any and all media now or hereafter known, throughout the world in perpetuity, without compensation, notification, permission, or approval.

Additional Conditions of Participation: By participating, participants agree to be bound by and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor and Administrator, which shall be final and binding in all respects. By participating in this Giveaway, participants agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Administrator, Telescope Inc., each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliated and successor companies, advertising and promotion agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives and employees, as well as each of their respective successors, representatives and assigns, as well as Facebook Inc., and Twitter, Inc. (collectively, the "Released Parties") from any and all actions, claims, injury, death, loss or damage to person(s) or property arising in any manner, directly or indirectly, from participation in this Giveaway and/or acceptance, possession, receipt or use/misuse of any prize. By participating, participants also authorize the Sponsor and its designees to use the participant’s name, voice, likeness, photograph, prize information, biographical data and city and state of residence in programming, advertising, trade and/or promotional material or on a winners’ list (if applicable) without compensation or notice, to the extent permitted by law.

This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Inc. or Twitter, Inc.
Disputes: The parties each agree to finally settle all disputes only through arbitration; provided, however, the Released Parties shall be entitled to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California, and any other court with jurisdiction over the parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited. The arbitrator’s decision and award is final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The parties agree that, except as set forth above, any claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Giveaway or any prize awarded shall be resolved solely by binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures of JAMS Inc. (“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either party (where party/participant is a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) can elect to have the arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Chicago, IL, New York City, NY, Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA or Dallas, TX (whichever is closest to entrant’s residence); provided, however, if none of these locations are convenient for the hearing, the parties may mutually agree on an alternative location. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided, however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying claims in small claims court. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each entrant waives any right to seek to enjoin or restrain the operation or exploitation of this Giveaway, the broadcast of the Movies, any advertising or other materials issued in connection with the Giveaway or the Movies, or any other Released Party property.
