6. Prize Drawing

On or about August 31, 2021, the Sponsor will select potential winners in a vote of

the employees of Gibson Law Partners, LLC from among all eligible entries received.

The proposed name receiving the most votes will win the contest. The Sponsor will

attempt to notify the potential winner through a post, on August 31, 2021, identifying

and tagging the winner and asking them to contact Gibson Law Partners on the details

to secure the prize. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days

after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an

alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning,

eligible entries.

7. Winner Notification

The potential winners will be notified through a Facebook post on the Gibson Law

Partners Facebook page that identifies and tags the winner. Each potential prize

winner (parent/legal guardian if a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to

complete, electronically sign and submit a Declaration of Compliance within five (5)

days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize. If a

potential winner cannot be contacted, or fails to submit the Declaration of Compliance

within the required time period (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable,

potential winner forfeits prize. If the potential winner is at least 18 but still considered a

minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize

in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian, who will be required to sign the

Declaration of Compliance on the potential winners behalf and fulfill any other

requirements imposed on winner set forth herein. Potential winners must continue to

comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent

upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any

reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by picking the

proposed name with the next most votes from all remaining eligible entries. The gift

card prize will be fulfilled approximately 2 to 7 business days after the conclusion of

the Contest.

9. General Conditions

In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Contest is impaired in

any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, bug, worm,

unauthorized human intervention or other technical problem, or in the event the Contest

is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole

discretion, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either (a) suspend the Contest to

address the impairment and then resume the Contest in a manner that best conforms to

the spirit of these Official Rules or (b) terminate the Contest and, in the event of

termination, award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries

received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole

discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or

the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an

unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the

website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of

criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the

right to seek damages (including attorney’s fees) and any other remedies from any such

person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any

provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

By participating in the Contest, entrants agree to release and hold harmless the

Sponsor, and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and

promotion agencies, other companies associated with the Contest, and each of their

respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, representatives, and agents

(the Released Parties) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of

participation in the Contest or receipt or use of the prize (including any travel or

activity related thereto), including, but not limited to: (a) any technical errors associated

with the Contest, including lost, interrupted or unavailable Internet Service Provider

from entrants participation in the Contest or acceptance, receipt or misuse of the prize

(including any travel or activity related thereto). Entrant further agrees that in any cause

of action, the Released Parties liability will be limited to the cost of entering and

participating in the Contest, and in no event shall the entrant be entitled to receive

Rules, entrants rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in
