Entry must be posted during the Promotion Entry Period. Internet access required. If entering via a mobile phone or other web-enabled device and using your wireless carrier’s network, standard data charges from your wireless carrier may apply. The Entry Announcement will include that Promotion’s start and end dates, and link to the submission criteria and judging criteria for a Contest Promotion, the prize, the approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the prize(s), the deadline for submitting entries, and/or the Drawing Date (as defined below) for a Sweepstakes Promotion, and may include additional information required for submission of valid entries. Entries posted tagging the Instagram Page or using the designated promotional hashtag may include text, photo and/or video, provided that the entry complies with the Entry Announcement instructions.
3.2. LIMIT OF ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON/INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT PER DAY. All requirements listed in the applicable Entry Announcement and these Official Rules must be completed in full for an entry to be considered valid. Any attempted form of entry other than as described in the applicable Entry Announcement and herein is void. Entries in violation of these Official Rules, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, will be disqualified. Entries must be received by the time indicated in the applicable Entry Announcement.

Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, Instagram accounts, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void such entries and that entrant may be disqualified, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Entries that are late, incomplete, misdirected, illegible or corrupted are void and will not be accepted or eligible to win. The sole determinant of time for the purposes of receipt of a valid entry in a Promotion will be a Promotion server machine(s). Proof of submission (screen captures, etc.) does not constitute proof of entry. All entries become property of the Sponsor and will not be returned. If you enter a Promotion, you hereby irrevocably consent to Sponsor’s use of the text, photo, and/or video in any publicity or advertising carried out by Sponsor or any related entities in any media without territorial or time limitation, except where prohibited by law, without any additional permission or approval, without notification, and without compensation to you, your heirs, or assigns.

4. SELECTION OF WINNER.
4.1. Sweepstakes Promotion: Sponsor shall conduct a random drawing to select winner(s) for each Sweepstakes Promotion (the “Potential Winner(s)”) from all eligible entries received during the respective Promotion period on the date set forth in the Entry Announcement (“Drawing Date”).
4.2. Contest Promotion: A panel of Sponsor judges shall select Potential Winner(s) for each Contest Promotion using the judging criteria set forth in the Entry Announcement.
4.3. In the event that there are no entries during the respective Promotion, there will be no drawing and the applicable prize(s) will not be awarded.
4.4. The Potential Winner(s) will be contacted by the Sponsor on or about Wednesday, March 2, 2016 through Instagram Direct Messaging - @AlamoRentACar will follow the winner and send a direct message to their private inbox. The Sponsor will ask each potential winner’s name, address, email address, phone number, and date of birth. The failure to respond by direct message within forty eight (48) hours of being contacted shall result in forfeiture of the prize and, in such case, Sponsor shall select an alternate Potential Winner from among the remaining eligible entries (by a random drawing in Sweepstakes Promotions or by a second highest score awarded by judges in a Contest Promotion). Sponsor is not responsible for suspended or discontinued wireless or online service, which may result in a potential winner not receiving initial prize notification. If an alternate Potential Winner fails to respond to the notification, Sponsor shall repeat this process a maximum of three (3) times. In the event that no Potential Winner responds to the notification, the prize will not be awarded. Potential Winner shall be required to provide his or her name, address, age and other necessary information to verify eligibility and receive the prize. Further, Sponsor may request and Potential Winner agrees to provide an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release covering eligibility, liability, advertising, publicity and media appearance issues, unless prohibited by law. A prize will not be awarded until necessary information has been collected and all properly executed forms are returned (“Verification”). Upon completion of Verification, a Potential Winner shall become a winner (“Winner”).

5.1. A prize is not transferable or redeemable for cash and must be accepted as awarded, with no substitutions of any kind. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize (or portion thereof) of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion. Sponsor is not responsible for and a Winner will not receive the difference, if any, between the actual value of a prize at the time of award and the ARV stated in these Official Rules or in any Promotion-related correspondence or materials.
