OFFICIAL RULES AND GUIDELINES
For the Grab Some Good Life Photo Contest
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE CHANCES OF WINNING.
The Grab Some Good Life Contest (“Contest”) call for entry period begins on Tuesday July 10th, 2012 at noon Eastern Time (“ET”) and ends on Monday September 3rd at 11:59:59 a.m. ET (“Promotion Period”) and consists of eight separate weekly entry periods (Wednesday through Monday) of the Contest (each a “Weekly Entry Period”). The Contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are at least 18 years of age and the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence at time of entry. Void where prohibited. Employees of Lifestyle Communities, Ltd. (“Sponsor”) and its parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, prize suppliers, including any vendors providing services in connection with this Contest (collectively, the “Sponsor Affiliates”), and employees, agents, directors, officers (including members of their immediate family – i.e., spouse, mother, father, in-laws, grandmother, grandfather, brother, sister, children and grandchildren – or those living in the same household) of Sponsor or any Sponsor Affiliates are not eligible to participate. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
During the Promotion Period, go to http://www.facebook.com/lifestylecommunities (“Contest Site”) and upload your original image, tagged with “#grabsomegoodlife” and “#lifestylecommunities”. The photo must be up loaded to the Contest Site in order to be a valid entry; photos uploaded to individual community sites will not be eligible. The photo you upload must match that Weekly Entry Period’s theme, as determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. The photo receiving the most “likes” on Facebook will be the weekly winner, subject to Sponsor discretion and the Official Rules as provided herein. You may use Instagram or Twitter to upload your photo, but only Facebook “likes” will be counted towards winning. Failure to complete any step outlined in, or to follow any of, the Official Rules will result in disqualification of attempted entry. All entries along with the entrant’s Instagram account name or Twitter handle may be publicly posted on the Contest Site during the Promotion Period, which will be at full discretion of Sponsor.
There is no limit on the number of entries per Weekly Entry Period per person. Each photograph uploaded to the Contest Site qualifies as a separate entry for the applicable Weekly Entry Period. “Like” votes on separate entries are not cumulative. Each entry is valid only for the Weekly Entry Period during which it is submitted. Once any member of a household has been awarded any prize for any Weekly Entry Period, all members of that household shall be ineligible to win future prizes. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected entries or entries not received regardless of cause. In the event of a dispute over who submitted an entry, the entry will be deemed to have been directly submitted by the primary e-mail address associated with the Facebook account identified. The authorized account holder is deemed to be the natural person who is assigned to the e-mail address associated with the submitted email account by the relevant entity responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the relevant domain. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

Entries that do not comply with the above requirements may not be eligible and, if submitted, may be removed at any time in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entry that it believes violates or potentially violates any of the foregoing requirements or otherwise fails to comply with any provision of these Official Rules. Entrants agree to reimburse Sponsor and Sponsor Affiliates in full in respect of any losses, damages, and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees that they may sustain from the breach of a representation or warranty made by the entrant or the use of any rights granted by the entrant to Sponsor hereunder. By entering, entrant warrants that the submitted image complies with the entry requirements set out above, including those at (i)-(iv) above. By entering, entrant grants to Sponsor a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable, assignable license to reproduce that image and to otherwise use, exploit, copy, modify, adapt, edit, publish and display the image in any form, manner, venue, media or technology now known or later developed for any and all purposes, including, without limitation, for purposes of trade, advertising, and promotion as Sponsor and its licensees or assignees determine, without further compensation, notification, or permission.

In the event of a tie, Sponsor will ask the tied entry owners a common knowledge question. The first of the tied entry owners to respond with the correct answer will be the winner.
Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify the entrant in its sole discretion. If the internet validation process fails to operate properly or appears to be tampered with or tainted with errors, fraud or unfair practices, Sponsor reserves the right to use another means to determine the winner(s). If it is discovered that attempts were made to by an individual to: use (or attempt to use) multiple names, identities, email addresses and/or any automated, script, macro or robotic program(s) to submit or “like” entries, then it may result in the disqualification, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, of the entries and/or entrant to which such votes relate. Any entries determined by Sponsor to be in violation of these Official Rules are subject to disqualification in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. All entries are subject to verification. The sole determinant of the time for the purposes of a valid entry in this Contest will be the Facebook time stamp on the entry.
