PROMOTION DESCRIPTION: The Holiday Spin and Win Promotion (the “Promotion”) takes place from December 14, 2021 at 12:00:01 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) to January 14, 2022 a 11:59:59 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Period“). Participation in the Promotion does not constitute participation in any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Promotion, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of The Epoch Times, 229 W 28th Street, New York, NY 10001 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.
ELIGIBILITY: Only legal United States residents residing in the fifty (50) United States and Washington D.C. who are eighteen (18) years of age or older and have an Epoch Times free or paid account are eligible to participate. For more information and to sign up for an account visit www.theepochtimes.com. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each are ineligible to participate in the Promotion or win a Prize. Promotion is void where prohibited by law.
HOW IT WORKS: During each Participation Period, visit www.theepochtimes.com (the “Website”). At the Website, create an Epoch Times account or log-in to your existing account if you already have one and locate the link for the Promotion and follow the on-screen instructions to play the game as directed. Once you have completed the game, you will be informed immediately what prize you have won in the Promotion (subject to verification of eligibility) and instructions on how to claim the prize. Limit one (1) game play per person and per Epoch Times account each day during the Promotion Period. Game plays in excess of the above stated limitation will be void. For purposes of these Official Rules, a ‘day’ is defined as each twenty-four (24) hour period during the Promotion Period beginning at 12:00:01 a.m. ET and ending at 11:59:59 p.m. ET.
Prize Winner Determination: One (1) computer generated winning time will be randomly generated for each “Gift Card Prize” (as described below) available in this Promotion. If you are the first participant to play the game at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a potential winner of a Gift Card Prize, subject to verification of eligibility. If you are a potential prize winner, you will be provided with instructions on how to claim the Gift Card Prize during your online session. If you receive a message that contains any message other than a winning message, you are not a Gift Card Prize winner. Point prizes will be awarded based on predetermined odds noted below.
The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Promotion. The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. NOTE: Participation must be by the participant and only as directed in these Official Rules. Participation by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any website or other platform, including but not limited to commercial promotion subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Promotion. The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited and will lead to disqualification.
In the event of a dispute over the identity of a potential winner, entry will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the email address associate with the Epoch Times account provided during registration as long as such person is otherwise eligible in accordance with these Official Rules. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
If due to technical, production or other errors, more prizes are claimed than intended, the intended prize will be awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid claims. No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded. ALL POTENTIAL WINNING PLAYS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING. A “SCREEN SHOT” IS NOT PROOF OR EVIDENCE OF A WINNING PLAY AND/OR PRIZE. A PARTICIPANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE PLATFORM SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SAID PARTICIPANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND THE POTENTIAL WINNING PLAY HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND SAID PARTICIPANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON IS DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY AND IS VOID AND WILL NOT BE HONORED. The submission of a prize claim is solely the responsibility of the participant.
Ten (10) Gift Card Prizes are available. Each Gift Card Prize consists of a $500 virtual general use prepaid gift card. Gift cards are subject to separate terms and conditions imposed by issuer.

Entrants agree that the Promotion Entities (A) shall not be responsible or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to participation in the Promotion or any Promotion-related activity, or from entrants’ acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not made any warranty, representation or guarantee express or implied, in fact or in law, with respect to any prize, including, without limitation, to such prize’s quality or fitness for a particular purpose.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Promotion if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Promotion is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Promotion as contemplated herein. In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Promotion as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Promotion. If the Promotion is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select any remaining winner(s) in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect registered participants as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
GOVERNING LAW: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROMOTION SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS.
