Winner will be determined in a random drawing from contest entries by BT, whose decisions will be final in all matters relating to this Contest. All entries become the property of BT. Odds of winning are determined by and depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. The use of robotic, automatic, macro, programmed or like methods (including without limitation the use of any promotion/contest subscription, notification, entry or like sites or service that offers contest entry services “on behalf of” entrant) is strictly prohibited. If you attempt to enter the contest in a manner other than as permitted in these Official Rules, then upon discovery thereof by BT, your entry will be deemed void and ineligible and you may be disqualified from further participation in the contest. Proof of entering contest online will not be deemed by BT to constitute proof of delivery or receipt of entry. No changes to any entry materials or information will be permitted once submitted.
Inability of BT to contact a potential winner, or return of emails or prize notification as “undeliverable” for any reason, may result in disqualification of such potential winner and selection of an alternate winner from among all remaining eligible entries. BT reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute with either the cash value of the applicable prize that would otherwise have been awarded, or a prize or prizes of equal or greater value, in the event that (i) such prize is unavailable, or (ii) the winner is unable to receive, accept or assume responsibility for the prize for any reason.
BT is no responsible for late, lost, incomplete, stolen, ineligible or misdirected entries. Facsimiles or mechanical reproductions will not be accepted. BT assumes no responsibility for cancellation of the contest due to labor strike, terrorism, industry conditions, commercial viability, or any other cause beyond their reasonable control. No responsibility is assumed by BT for lost entries; incorrect or inaccurate online information relating to the contest (including typographical errors); any computer, telephone, cable, network, satellite, server, service provider, electronic, power, or Internet or other hardware or software malfunctions, failures, connections or availability; data loss or late or incorrect data processing; Internet traffic congestion; service provider/Internet/Site inaccessibility, unavailability or malfunction; garbled or jumbled transmissions; or unauthorized human intervention.
