Official Rules for Prizes brought to you by Publishers Clearing House
Official Rules for Search and Win Sweepstakes
Effective November 27, 2014
2. How to Enter the Sweepstakes
To enter the Sweepstakes, just access a participating website then register or sign in and search the internet using its Search and Win search services. Each time you enter a unique search term, you will be eligible to win a prize. Clicking on a link or links after performing a search is not necessary to enter and does not improve a user's chances of winning. Clicking through to any other linked pages, including sponsored results and search results, will not result in additional Sweepstakes entries. No more than 25 searches per day will be eligible to win.
3. Current Prizes
Promotional Period: Giveaway SW20140630 begins on November 27, 2014 (12:00 AM, ET) and ends on November 27, 2014 (11:59 PM, ET)

Winner Selection Methodology: Computer-generated potential winning time(s) will be randomly selected for all prizes.

Winning times will be generated consistent with user traffic estimates and may not be evenly distributed throughout the Promotional Period ("Instant Win Method").
4. How to Claim a Prize
5. Winner Verification; Prize Receipt
Winners may be required to show verifiable proof of legitimate search and entitlement to win and to sign an affidavit of eligibility and publicity release in order to claim their Prize. If you have not received your Prize within six weeks after the end of the relevant Promotional Period, you must notify the Sponsor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to notify the Sponsor of non-receipt within eight weeks after the end of the Promotional Period will result in forfeiture of the Prize.
Participation constitutes consent to use of Winner's name, likeness and address (city, state) for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration.
7. General Conditions
Any Giveaway may be canceled, suspended and/or modified, in whole or in part, if in the opinion of the Sponsor any fraud, technical failure or other factor beyond its control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes. Neither the Sponsor nor any Promoter is responsible for computer malfunctions, network connections, email delivery problems, systems failure or incompatibility, typographical, technical or key-stroke errors, or interruptions in internet service.
Prizes may be offered in different promotional presentations, combined with other Prizes or substituted with another of comparable or greater value. (For example, a $10 Prize may be offered or fulfilled as cash, a gift card or merchandise of comparable value.) No other cash option for, or substitution, assignment or transfer of, any Prize is permitted. Movie ticket Prizes may be redeemed only at participating theatres. Claimed Prizes will be awarded within eight weeks after the end of the relevant Promotional Period. Unclaimed Prizes will not be awarded. Winner is responsible for all taxes.
Sponsor reserves the right, in the case where all Prizes have been awarded prior to the scheduled end of the Promotion Period for any Giveaway, either to end the Giveaway or to replace some or all of such Prizes and continue.
8. Limitations of Liability
If for any reason an entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, the entrant's sole remedy is another entry in the same or a comparable Sweepstakes (or, if that is not possible for any reason, in a random drawing from among other eligible entries for any or all of the unclaimed prizes offered in a Giveaway). No claimant in any dispute involving the Sponsor or any Promoter shall be entitled to claim or obtain indirect, punitive, incidental or consequential damages. Liability of the Sponsor or any Promoter on a claim is limited to the value of the Prize in question.
Decisions of the Sponsor's Board of Judges are final. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to conduct a search will be deemed to be the entrant. Failure by the Sponsor to enforce any provision in these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Sponsor; Promoters
The Sweepstakes is sponsored by Publishers Clearing House, 101 Winners Circle, Port Washington, NY 11053-4016. The Sponsor may contract with others (each, a "Promoter") to make the Sweepstakes available through Search and Win opportunities offered on their respective Web sites (each, a "Promoter Web site"). All Participants have the same chance to win and the Daily Entry Limit applies at all times regardless of the Promoter Web site through which they enter. See Sweepstakes Facts for estimated odds of winning and other important messages. The Sponsor and some Promoters may offer additional benefits or features to Participants, but such benefits or features are independent of the Sweepstakes, do not affect the odds of winning a Prize and are not the responsibility of any other person.
11. Sweepstakes Results; Official Rules
For Sweepstakes results and/or a copy of these Official Rules, send a hand-printed, self-addressed, stamped envelope to the Sponsor at the address above within thirty (30) days after the end of the Promotional Period. VT and MA residents may exclude return postage.
