Any participant who posts after the close of the Sweepstakes Period, or who makes a post that is not in compliance with these Official Rules, will not be given an entry into the Sweepstakes.
Limit: Each participant may obtain only one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share a Facebook or Instagram account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different Facebook or Instagram accounts, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified from the entire Sweepstakes. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the Facebook or Instagram account used to register will be deemed to be the registrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder of the Facebook or Instagram account associated with the winning entry.
WINNER SELECTION: At the close of the Sweepstakes Period, The Pink Agenda will randomly select the designated number of entrant(s) from among all of the entries received to be the potential Prize winner(s). AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE SWEEPSTAKES SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND COMPLIANCE WITH THE OFFICIAL RULES HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. The potential Winner will be notified by direct message, e-mail or phone using the contact information provided during registration. All potential winners may be subject to verification of eligibility, and may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Prize Acceptance Form (“Release”) within a certain time period after notification. If a potential winner cannot be reached (regardless of reason), does not respond within the designated time (if required), or there is a return of any Prize/Prize notification as undeliverable, he/she may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. Upon disqualification, no further compensation will be given. Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at The Pink Agenda’s sole discretion. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate potential winner may be selected in a random drawing from the remaining entries. Depending on Prize, The Pink Agenda may limit the number of attempts to award a Prize to two (2) attempts. In such case, if a Prize winner cannot be confirmed after two (2) attempts, the Prize will remain unawarded. Odds of winning will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
PRIZES & APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES: The Pink Agenda will announce the prize(s) (each, a “Prize”). Prizes may vary for each Sweepstakes. Limit: one Prize per person, Facebook account, Instagram account, mobile telephone number, e-mail address, or household.

Prize consists of only those items specifically stated as part of the Prize. All expenses and costs associated with the acceptance or use of the Prize that are not expressly specified in these Official Rules as being part of the Prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.
