Failure to include the required hashtags will void the Entry.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the Authorized Account Holder of the email address used to register for the Sweepstakes will be deemed to be the Participant.  The “Authorized Account Holder” is the natural person assigned the email address used to register for the Twitter account, as that is determined by the 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.  Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, illegible or misdirected Entries, which may be disqualified, or for any error, human, technical or otherwise.  Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules.  Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, stolen, incomplete, inaccurate, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected posts, all of which will be void.

     

    5. Winner Selection: Sponsor will randomly select nine (9) potential winners (one (1) per Drawing Entry Period) as set forth above.  Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received. Potential winners will be announced at approximately 11:00 AM CDT on each of the Drawing Dates on the @AMDRyzen Twitter account and potential winners will be notified by Direct Message on Twitter. Within twenty-four (24) hours of the Sponsor’s Direct Message, each potential winner must supply his/her email address and any requested information for the administration of the Sweepstakes.  If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to respond to the notification within twenty-four (24) hours; fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; or fails or refuses to fully complete, sign and return the Affidavit, he/she forfeits the applicable prize and the prize may be awarded to an alternate potential winner, selected by random drawing from among remaining eligible Entries.  Only two (2) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.  Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s sole discretion.  Potential winners may waive their right to receive a prize, in which case an alternate potential winner will be selected in the manner described above. Allow 6-8 weeks for prize delivery.  Sponsor is not responsible for any change of email address, mailing address and/or telephone number.
