4. How to Enter
No purchase is necessary to win. Limit one (1) entry per person during the Sweepstakes Entry Period regardless of method of entry. The Sweepstakes must be entered by commenting on Sponsor’s designated Facebook post stating “Tell us why you want a pair of Limited Edition Ariana Cat Ear Headphones below and you could win a pair!” You must comment regarding why you desire a pair of Limited Edition Ariana Cat Ear Headphones to enter.  Please note that your privacy settings of your social media account must be set such that Sponsor may view and confirm your entry.

If you are a winner, Sponsor will send a private message to your personal social media platform account (“Account”). Sponsor may also send you messages informing you of new products, services, special offers, promotions or upcoming events for Sponsor. You represent and warrant that your entry is an original work of authorship, and does not violate any third party’s proprietary or intellectual property rights.  A person entering online must provide a valid Account which provides Sponsor with the ability to send messages to the social media platform user. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Account. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries in the Sweepstakes by using multiple/different Accounts, identities, registrations, logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified. The use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for late, incomplete, invalid, private, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, each of which will be disqualified.

5. Winner Selection

The Sponsor will conduct a random draw to select one (1) winner for the Prize (as defined below in Section 6) from all valid entries received from entrants. On or about the day of the drawing, the selected entrant will be contacted by the Sponsor or an agent of the Sponsor using the Account information that such entrant provided with their entry and may be declared a winner, subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these Official Rules. The selected entrant may also be required to sign and return to the Sponsor, within seven (7) days of the date notice is sent to such entrant, an affidavit of eligibility, and a liability/publicity release in the form provided by the Sponsor, in order to claim the Prize. The failure to respond to the initial contact from Sponsor through the Social Media Platform within forty-eight (48) hours of the time of such contact will result in the disqualification of the selected entrant(s). If a selected entrant cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if the Prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the selected entrant forfeits the Prize and such selected entrant will have no further recourse against the Sponsor or any person or company associated with the Sweepstakes. A selected entrant who complies with the requirements of this Section may be declared a winner (a “Winner”) by the Sponsor.
