If you change your mind, you can stop receiving email updates at any time by using the links provided in the emails.

  5. Random Drawing/Winner Notification: Ten (10) potential Grand Prize winners will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible Entries received on or about November 7, 2013. Drawing will be conducted by the Sponsor whose decisions will be final and binding on all matters related to the Sweepstakes.

Return of prize or prize notification as undeliverable, failure to sign and return requested documentation within the specified time period, the inability of Sponsor to contact a potential winner within the foregoing time period or noncompliance with these Official Rules by potential winner will result in disqualification and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner.
  6. Grand Prizes and Approximate Retail Value ("ARV"): Ten Grand Prizes: An autographed photo of Flo, A Flo bobblehead and a Flo t-shirt (ARV: $50 each). Total ARV of all prizes: $500.

Winners are responsible for all federal, state and local taxes, if any. All prize details are at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Limit one (1) prize per person/household.
  7. General Rules: All Entries will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address registered to the Instagram account that submitted the Entry and he/she must comply with these Official Rules. "Authorized Account Holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. The Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for: (a) any late, lost, misrouted, delayed, inaccurate, incomplete, damaged, garbled or distorted or damaged transmissions or entries; (b) telephone, electronic, hardware, software, network, Internet, or other computer- or communications-related malfunctions or failures; (c) any Sweepstakes disruptions, injuries, losses or damages caused by events beyond the control of Sponsor or by non-authorized human intervention; or (d) other errors or difficulties of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic, computer, network, typographical, printing or otherwise relating to or in connection with the Sweepstakes, including, without limitation, errors or difficulties which may occur in connection with the administration of the Sweepstakes, the processing of Entries, the announcement of the prizes or in any Sweepstakes-related materials. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel the Sweepstakes if any aspect of the Sweepstakes becomes technically corrupted, and conduct a random drawing to select the Grand Prize winners from the non-suspect, eligible Entries received prior to cancellation. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual that tampers or attempts to tamper with the Entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes; violates the Official Rules; or acts in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person and void all associated Entries. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the fairness, proper play, or legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
