The prize is awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. The prize will only be awarded upon potential winners’ verification and final approval by Sponsor. No prize substitution, cash equivalent of prizes, transfer or assignment of prize permitted, except by Sponsor in its sole discretion, due to prize unavailability for any reason, and only then for a prize of equal or greater value. The prize will be fulfilled within seven days after the promotion has ended.

The full name and state of resident of the winner will be posted on Sponsor’s website at GiftCardsApp.com. All entrants agree that Sponsor may post the full name of the winner and state of residence on Sponsor’s website and other promotional material. Acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for Sponsor and its affiliates to take photographs and video of the winner, and use the winner’s name, state of residence, likeness, and other biographical information for fulfilling Sponsor’s obligations under these Official Rules or other legal obligations, or for advertising and promotional purposes as Sponsor so determines without notice or further compensation, except where prohibited by law.

Identification of the Winner. Entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at time of entry. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of any potential winner, the potential winner will be deemed to be the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at time of Sweepstakes entry. The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses or the domain associated with the submitted email address. A potential winner may be requested to provide the Sponsor with proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry. If, in Sponsor’s sole determination, a dispute cannot be resolved, the entry will be deemed ineligible.

In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment.
