Entrants must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Winning is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules, including rules regarding eligibility for participation. By submitting an entry, Entrant agrees and hereby releases Sponsor and its affiliates, employees, agents, officers and directors from any and all liability or responsibility arising in connection with Entrant’s participation in the Drawing or as to the acceptance and use of any prize(s) which may be awarded.

- An Entrant is deemed to be the holder of the established email account and phone number associated with a Drawing entry.
- If the potential winner cannot be contacted, does not respond within 24 hours or TriMet’s notification is returned as undeliverable, such potential winner forfeits all rights to any prize and an alternate winner may be selected.

Such use may be for editorial, public relations, promotional, or advertising purposes, or any other purpose as deemed reasonable by Sponsor. Sponsor may request documentation of such permission and of Entrant’s eligibility by signed release and affidavit and failure to provide such documentation within the time required by Sponsor will result in forfeiture of any winner status and/or prize.
- All potential winners are subject to verification by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the Drawing.
