The #RichKids Finders Keepers contest ("Contest") will begin on January 1, 2014 at 12:00 AM ET and ends on January 20, 2014 at 11:59:59 PM ET ("Contest Period").  All times in the Contest refer to Eastern Time ("ET"), except where otherwise noted.  Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.  This Contest is sponsored by E!

    ELIGIBILITY: Open only to permanent, legal U.S. residents who are physically residing in the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older as of the start of the Contest Period.  Officers, directors, and employees of Contest Entities (as defined below), members of these persons' immediate families (spouses and/or parents, children, and siblings, and their spouses, regardless of where they reside), and/or persons living in the same households as these persons (whether or not related thereto) are not eligible to enter or win the Contest.  Contest Entities, as referenced herein, shall include Sponsor and its parent, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and administrative, advertising, and promotion agencies, and any other entity involved in the development, administration, promotion, or implementation of the Contest, including without limitation, Revolution Marketing, LLC and Kaleidoscope Promotions, Inc.

    ENTRY AND WINNER SELECTION: An Instagram account is required to enter and win a Prize.  If you do not have an Instagram account, go to www.instagram.com and follow the instructions to create a free account.  Please note that you must agree to comply with the Instagram Terms of Use in order to create an Instagram account.  This Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram.

    This Contest will be conducted in the cities (each, a "City") and on the dates listed on the Contest schedule set forth below (the "Contest Schedule").   Sponsor may amend the Contest Schedule in its discretion at any time for any reason.  

    At each City, representatives of Sponsor will place a different prize (each, a "Prize") in up to five (5) different locations within the City and/or surrounding areas (each, a "Location").   Each Prize will be awarded as follows:

    Representatives of Sponsor will post an initial photo collage ("Photo Clue") at www.instagram.com/RichKidsOfBH (the "Instagram Website"), which will show the Prize and provide visual clues to the Location of the Prize. 
    Contestants will have one (1) hour from the time the initial Photo Clue (the "Prize Period") is posted to win the Prize.  Representatives of Sponsor may post additional Photo Clues or written clues during the Prize Period in their discretion. 
    The first eligible contestant to reach the Location, locate the authorized representative of Sponsor holding the Prize and say "hashtag rich kids" to such representative will be deemed the winner of the Prize ("Winner").  Winner will be required to post a photograph of Winner holding the Prize to Winner's Instagram account with the hashtag #RichKids.
    In the event the Prize is claimed, contestants will be notified via the Instagram Website that the Prize has been awarded.  If no one claims the Prize before the end of the Prize Period, Sponsor may elect not to award the Prize or to extend the Prize Period for an additional period of time determined by Sponsor.
    In the event that more than one (1) person reaches the Location at the same time and simultaneously says "hashtag rich kids" to the Sponsor representative, a random drawing between the eligible contestants will be conducted on-site by the authorized Sponsor representative to determine the Winner.  

    The initial Photo Clue for the first Prize in each City will be posted on the Instagram Website at approximately 11:00 AM local time.  The initial Photo Clue for each subsequent Prize (if any) will be posted following the conclusion of the Prize Period for the last awarded Prize. 

    Decisions of Sponsor and/or its representatives are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Contest.  Winning is subject to verification of eligibility.  Potential Winner may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity release before receiving the Prize. Noncompliance with these Official Rules may result in disqualification and, at Sponsor's discretion, and time permitting, an alternate potential Winner may be selected from next eligible entry based on the next arrival at the Location.

    Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant's name, Instagram user 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 additional compensation, notification, permission, or approval. By entering the Location, contestants agree to be filmed, photographed, identified and/or included in promotional materials.

    PARTICIPATION CONDUCT: A participant may be removed from the Location and/or disqualified from participating in the Contest, at the sole discretion of Sponsor, for any reason at any time, including but not limited to the advice of Sponsor's representatives at Location ("Event Staff"), by creating an unauthorized disturbance, interruption, or unnecessarily rough physical or mental threat to the well-being of any other participant or Event Staff, he/she may be removed from the Location. Any act performed by participant defined by Federal, State of Local statute or ordinance as constituting a criminal act may result in removal from the Location and/or disqualification from Contest. At the sole discretion of Sponsor, if a participant uses profanity, or demonstrates any lewd or sexually suggestive gestures or full or partial nudity, the Sponsor shall have the right to remove the individual from the Location and/or disqualify participant from Contest.

And disqualification and/or removal from the Location will result in forfeiture of any prize that may have been awarded.

    By participating, each participant (i) understands the Sponsor has not arranged for and does not carry any insurance of any kind for participant's benefit and that participant will be solely responsible for obtaining and paying for any medical, life, accident, automobile, property or other insurance relative to his/her participation in Contest; (ii) agrees that he/she will obey all traffic, safety and other applicable laws and will not speed or otherwise expose himself/herself or any other individual, whether participating in the Contest or not, to harm or danger of any kind; (iii) agrees to release and hold harmless the Released Entities (defined below) from any injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death, to persons, or property resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from participating on Contest; and (iv) agrees to indemnify the Released Entities (defined below) from any losses, liabilities or expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any claims, proceedings or investigations arising from or in connection with participant's participation in Contest or compliance or non-compliance with these Official Rules.

    All details of Prize will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a similar Prize (or Prize element) of comparable or greater value. All taxes and other expenses, costs, or fees associated with the acceptance and/or use of Prize are the sole responsibility of Winner. Prize cannot be transferred by Winner or redeemed for cash and is valid only for the items detailed above, with no substitution of Prize by Winner. If Prize is unclaimed within a reasonable time after notification from Sponsor, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, it will be forfeited, and time permitting, an alternate Winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries at Sponsor's sole discretion.  Sponsor shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make any deductions and withholdings that Sponsor deems necessary or desirable under applicable federal, state and local tax laws, rules, regulations, codes or ordinances.
