Official Rules

April 2, 2015 - April 8, 2015


PRELIMINARY INFORMATION:  NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. Void where prohibited. The above-named sweepstakes ("Sweepstakes") is sponsored by NBCUniversal Media, LLC and E! Entertainment Television, LLC (collectively, "Sponsor").  This Sweepstakes will begin on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 12:00:01 a.m. PT and will end on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at 11:59:59 p.m. PT ("Sweepstakes Period").  All times in the Sweepstakes refer to Pacific Time ("PT") unless otherwise stated.  Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received.  Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws.


ELIGIBILITY: You must be eighteen (18) years of age or older (and the age of majority in your state of residence) and a permanent legal United States resident physically residing in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands and other United States territories) as of the start of the Sweepstakes Period.  You must have an active, personal Twitter account to enter.  Go to www.twitter.com for instructions on how to sign up for a free account.  Officers, directors, and employees of Sweepstakes Entities (as defined below), members of these persons' immediate families (spouses and/or parents, children, and siblings, and each of their respective 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 Sweepstakes.  "Sweepstakes Entities," as referenced herein, shall include Sponsor, its parent, subsidiary, and affiliate companies, and its administrative, advertising, and promotion agencies, and any other entity involved in the development, administration, fulfillment or implementation of the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, Christina Aguilera, Maria Lucia Hohan  and Procter & Gamble Prestige.  Entrants must have a valid social security number or tax identification number to be eligible.


HOW TO ENTER:  To enter on Twitter, log into your Twitter account and send a Tweet to @eonline with the name of your favorite Christina Aguilera song using the hashtag #XtinaDressSweeps or #XTinaSweeps.  The content of your Tweet will not affect your eligibility, but your Tweet must include both '@eonline' and '#XtinaDressSweeps' or '#XTinaSweeps' in order to be eligible.  If your Twitter profile is set to the "Protect my Tweets" setting, your entry may be disqualified and rejected as ineligible for consideration in the Sweepstakes.    Limit one entry per person.  Entries received beyond this limit are void and will be disqualified.  Entrants who use multiple Twitter accounts to enter will be disqualified.  Your entry must be received before 11:59:59 p.m. PT on April 8, 2015 to be eligible for the Sweepstakes.  Sponsor's computer shall be the official timekeeper for all matters related to this Sweepstakes.  All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.  Entries generated by a script, macro, or other automated means or by any means that subverts the entry process will be disqualified.  Entries that are incomplete, garbled, corrupted, 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 the individual who made a winning entry, Sponsor reserves the right to determine the potential winner in its sole discretion.  Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor may deem that an entry was made by the registered subscriber of the email address used to enter (if an email address was required for entry).  If entry was made using a social media account without providing an email address, Sponsor may deem that the winning entrant is the authorized account holder of the social media account used to enter.  "Authorized account holder" is defined as the person who is assigned to the social media account, cell phone account or any other account by the organization responsible for assigning such accounts.    Entry constitutes permission (except where prohibited by law) to use entrant's name, social media account names, 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.  If you choose to submit your entry via your web-enabled mobile device, data rates may apply. See your wireless service provider for details on rates and capabilities. 


WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  Potential winners will be selected from all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period in a random drawing held by Sponsor (or its representative) on or about Thursday, April 9, 2015.  Sponsor will make two (2) attempts to notify certain potential winner(s) using Twitter direct message.  Potential winner must respond and provide an email address within three (3) business days of the initial notification, or an alternate potential winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries.  Potential winner may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, release of liability, and, except where prohibited, publicity release within five (5) business days of receipt.  Noncompliance within this time period may result in disqualification, and, at Sponsor's sole discretion an alternate potential winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries.  If a potential winner cannot be reached, does not comply with Sponsor's confirmation instructions before Sponsor's confirmation deadline, is found to be ineligible, cannot or does not comply with these Official Rules, or if the prize or winner notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner will be disqualified, and time permitting, an alternate winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries at Sponsor's sole discretion.  Limit one (1) prize per family or household.


PRIZE(S):  One (1) prize will be awarded.  The prize will consist of one (1) replica of the white Maria Lucia Hohan dress worn by Christina Aguilera at the 2013 American Music Awards (dress is available in size 4 only), and one (1) bottle of Christina Aguilera Woman fragrance (1.6 FL OZ).  Estimated retail value ("ERV") of prize is $1,489.00.  Winner is solely responsible for all taxes, expenses, costs or fees associated with acceptance and/or use of the prize that are not specifically stated herein as being awarded.  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.  Actual retail value of prizes may vary.  Any difference between ERV and actual retail value will not be awarded.  For any prize with an actual retail value of six hundred dollars ($600) or greater, Sponsor will furnish an Internal Revenue Service Form 1099 to winner for such value for the year in which prize was won. 


All prize details will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  Prizes will be awarded "as is" with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied by Sponsor.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize (or portion thereof) with a similar prize (or prize element) of comparable or greater value for any reason at their sole discretion. Additional restrictions may apply.  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.  If a minor is eligible to enter the Sweepstakes and is selected as a winner, the prize will be awarded in the name of such minor's parent or legal guardian.  Gift card, tickets and other prizes may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the prize provider or issuer. 


PRIVACY: Sponsor's use of your personal information is governed by Sponsor's privacy policy, located at http://www.nbcuni.com/privacy.  You may be given the opportunity to opt-in to receive additional information from Sponsor and selected partners. If, at any time, you no longer wish to receive materials from Sponsor or our partners, please go to Sponsor's privacy policy, or the applicable partner's privacy policy, and follow the procedures indicated.  Sponsor may share a potential winner's name and contact information with any of the Sweepstakes Entities, including, without limitation, any prize provider.
