4. How to Enter: There are two (2) ways to enter each Movie Sweepstakes:

(a) Purchase tickets to see the movie: During the Promotion Period, visit https://movies.yahoo.com/ and complete and submit the registration form.  You will be asked to provide your name and valid email address including a valid email address.  Follow the links and instructions to purchase at least one (1) ticket to view one (1) of the movies listed above and you will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes for the applicable movie. You will not earn a Sweepstakes entry if you purchase movie tickets through other online methods. You will only receive one (1) entry into the applicable Movie Sweepstakes drawing regardless of the number of tickets you purchase.

(b) Enter Without Ticket Purchase: Hand print your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address, and date of birth on a 3" x 5" piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with proper postage to "Yahoo! Summer Movieland Sweepstakes," c/o ePrize, LLC, PO Box 5046, Dept No. 585471, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5046. You must include the name of the movie associated with the Sweepstakes for which you would like to enter on the front of the envelope. If you do not list a movie your entry will not be included in any drawing. You will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Movie Sweepstakes drawing.  Limit: One (1) entry per envelope. All mail-in entries must be handwritten and must be postmarked by the end date and received by the receipt date (both listed in the chart above). All entries become the exclusive property of Sponsor and none will be acknowledged or returned.  Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.

Limit: You may only enter one (1) time for each Movie Sweepstakes during the Promotion Period.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant.  The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

5. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes.  Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winners for each Movie Sweepstakes from all eligible entries received for the applicable Movie Sweepstakes (entries received for other movies will not be included), on or around the dates listed in the chart above.  The potential winners will be notified by email.  Each potential winner will be required to provide his or home address (P.O. Boxes not permitted) within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent in order to claim the prize. Except where prohibited, the potential winner of any prize valued at $600 or greater will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release which must be received by Administrator within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize.  If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, or fails to provide his or her home address or sign and return the Declaration of Compliance, Liability and Publicity Release within the required time period (if applicable), the potential winner forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award prizes valued at greater than $25 to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain unawarded. Unclaimed prizes valued at $25 or less will not be awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of each Sweepstakes.

9. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor's reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.  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 Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner.  Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the 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 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.

11. Disputes: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan (Southern Division) or the appropriate Michigan State Court located in Oakland County, Michigan; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes, but in no event attorneys' fees; and (3) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Michigan.
