Intermedia also reserves the right in its sole discretion to extend or modify the Sweepstakes. Sweepstakes entries will be deemed null and void and will be rejected if not submitted through authorized and legitimate channels.
1.4 PRIZE and ODDS: Grand Prize – One (1) prize winner (“Winner”) will be selected at random from all eligible entries and will receive a four (4) day / three (3) night trip to Maui, Hawaii for Winner and one (1) guest (“Guest”) at Honua Kai Resort and Spa, consisting of the following: [a] hotel accommodations (one (1) standard double occupancy bedroom or studio, including room tax) for three (3) consecutive nights; [b] two (2) round-trip coach air transportation (with possible layovers) on an Intermedia-selected carrier between an Intermedia-selected major metropolitan airport near Winner’s residence (“Airport of Origin”) and Kahului Airport; and [c] round trip ground transportation between (i) Winner’s residence and the Airport of Origin and (ii) Kahului Airport and the Honua Kai Resort and Spa, on an Intermedia-selected shuttle service (the “Trip”). The Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the Trip is $3,500.00 USD, which will vary depending upon point of departure and seasonal fluctuation of hotel rates and airfares.
Trip is for a Winner and one (1) Guest of a Winner’s choosing. Winner will have the sole right to decide which individual will accompany him/her on the Trip. A Winner’s Guest (if Guest is a Minor, then his/her parent) must sign and return a travel release prior to issuance of documents. If any Guest is a Minor, he/she must be accompanied on the Trip by his/her parent (including, but not limited to, in-flight). The Winner and his/her Guest (“Group”) must travel together on the same itinerary and are solely responsible for obtaining any and all necessary travel documents (e.g., valid photo I.D, passport, etc.) before departure. Once selected by Winner, Guest cannot be changed without the express consent of Intermedia, which may be withheld for any reason. Winner understands and agrees that Intermedia has the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify and remove any Group member from any activity at any time if such Group member’s behavior at any point is disruptive or may or does cause damage to person, property or the reputation of Intermedia, or an affiliate, or otherwise violates the rules or policies of Intermedia or the applicable resort. Winner acknowledges that he/she is solely responsible for any actions, claims or liabilities of any of Guest related to any Sweepstakes-related activity or travel.
All expenses not specifically mentioned herein are not included and are solely the Winner’s responsibility, including but not limited to: alcoholic and other beverages, food, gratuities and tips, insurance, laundry service, merchandise, parking, room service, service charges, souvenirs, taxes, internet charges, and telephone calls (including fax charges). Travel, lodging and Prize elements are subject to availability, certain restrictions, black-out dates and Intermedia’s approval. Airline carrier and hotel regulations and conditions apply. The Group must travel between March 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017 (on dates selected by Winner, subject to availability and approval by Intermedia), or the Prize will be forfeited in its entirety and, at Intermedia’s sole discretion, awarded to an alternate Winner. No extensions will be granted. Travel must be booked and arranged through Intermedia, and Intermedia shall determine airline and flight itinerary in its sole discretion. The Trip must be booked at least sixty (60) days prior to travel and if such travel exceeds the ARV, the Winner may either (i) select a different date of travel or (ii) pay for any Trip expenses, to the extent they exceed the ARV. Once the travel schedule has been arranged, it cannot be altered, and failure of a Winner to follow such schedule shall not obligate Intermedia in any way to provide the Winner with alternate arrangements. Intermedia is not responsible for airline cancellations or delays. Airline tickets issued in conjunction with the Prize are not eligible for frequent flyer miles, and no code share flights may be used.
If the actual value of the Prize is less than the stated ARV, the difference will not be awarded. The Prize is not transferable, but may be redeemable for cash in the amount stated as the ARV. No substitution allowed except, at Intermedia’s sole discretion, a Prize of equal or greater value may be substituted. Intermedia will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen tickets, travel vouchers or certificates. Prize elements may not be separated. Prize cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer. The Prize will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible Entries are received and Prize is validly claimed by January 31, 2017. A Prize will be awarded solely to the individual Winner who submitted the winning Entry and not to the Winner’s employer or other entity identified on the Winner’s business card or conference badge scan.
Winner shall be solely responsible for all taxes, including, without limitation, U.S. federal, state and/or local taxes (including, without limitation, income and withholding taxes). Sales taxes on the Prize and any expenses in excess of the Prize amount, and the reporting consequences thereof, are solely the responsibility of a Winner. The Winner may be required to remit to Intermedia an amount to cover the balance or the entire amount, as the case may be, of all applicable withholding taxes at the normal rates required by law (notwithstanding any tax treaties that may provide for lower rates of tax withholding, including exemption from withholding with the satisfaction of qualification requirements) prior to being awarded the Prize and failure to do so will result in disqualification. Winner will receive an IRS Form 1099-MISC reflecting the final actual value of his/her Prize. Limit one (1) prize, in total, for this Sweepstakes Period.
1.5 WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: The Winner will be selected at random during the first week of January 2017 after the end of the Sweepstakes Period from all eligible entries. Intermedia shall have no liability for any Winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond as directed within five (5) days following the first notification attempt, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected, in Intermedia’s sole discretion, in a random drawing from among the remaining eligible entries. If necessary, Intermedia will successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential alternate winners of the Prize in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed winner of the Prize in question after such attempts have been made, the Prize may go un-awarded. If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Sweepstakes Rules or declines a Prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected in the manner described above.
1.6 GENERAL RELEASE: By participating, each entrant agrees that Intermedia, its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, licensees and assigns and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives, shall not be responsible or liable for any losses, damages or injuries of any kind resulting from participation in the Sweepstakes, or from entrants’ acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of the Prize.

Only the type and quantity of the Prize described in these Official Sweepstakes Rules will be awarded. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Sweepstakes 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 Sweepstakes 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.
