3.     HOW TO ENTER.  There are two (2) ways to participate in the Sweepstakes:


a) TEXT MESSAGE ENTRY: During the Promotion Period, from your wireless phone, text the keyword “DM3” to the short code 86677

(the “Short Code”).  After sending your text message entry, you may receive one (1) or more text messages in response to your text entry, including a message confirming your entry, and legal disclaimers from Sponsor.  You may opt-out of receiving the promotional text messages from Sponsor at any time by sending a reply text message with the word “STOP”.  Ttthe text messaging method of entry is designed to work with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate, and the mobile phone that is used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages.  Check with your carrier for details.  Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability.  Wireless service providers may charge entrants for each text message, including any error message that is sent and received in connection with the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan.  Message and data rates apply.  Entrants should consult their wireless service provider’s pricing plan for details.  Entry by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning.  By texting an entry, the entrant grants permission to the Sponsor to notify them via a return text message and must agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith.  You are responsible for all applicable fees and taxes associated with placing a text entry.  Sponsor in its sole discretion may add or delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice.  Proof of text messaging the Short Code is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such Sweepstakes entry.  Text entries must be completed as noted in rule #1 in order to be entered into the random drawing for the respective Entry Period(s).


b) MAIL-IN ENTRY: You may also participate by hand writing on a plain 3” x 5” piece of paper, your name, address, age, and daytime/evening phone numbers.  Mail your entry in an envelope with sufficient postage affixed to: Kellogg’s / Despicable Me 3 Text-to-Enter Sweepstakes, Attn: Entry, P.O. Box 7648, Kalamazoo, MI  49003-7648.  Mail-in entries must be “postmarked by” and “received by” as noted in rule #1 in order to be entered into the random drawing for the respective Entry Period(s).


No automated entry devices, bots and/or other programs and/or software are permitted for entry.  No mechanically reproduced, altered, forged, or facsimile entries will be accepted.  All entries become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be returned.  Promotion Entities are not responsible for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, misdirected, technically corrupted or garbled entries, which will be disqualified, or for problems of any kind, whether mechanical, human or electronic.  Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes.  Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.  Only fully completed entries are eligible.


If due to programming, production or other errors, more prizes are awarded and/or claimed than intended, the intended number of Sweepstakes prizes will be awarded in a random drawing from all those submitting purportedly valid claims.  No more than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules will be awarded.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  All potential winning entries are subject to verification by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding.   A participant is not a winner of any prize, even if a confirmation text message/email should so indicate, unless and until said participant’s eligibility has been verified and said participant has been notified that verification is complete.  Sponsor will not accept Screen Shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.  Any entry that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a defective entry and is void and will not be honored.


Limit one (1) entry per person, per Day - regardless of method of entry.  All entries in excess of this limit will be deemed void.  Promotion Entities are not responsible for any change of mailing address and/or telephone number of participants.  In the event of a dispute over the identity of a text entry participant in the Sweepstakes, participation will be deemed completed by the authorized account holder of the mobile telephone number provided at the time of participation.  “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a mobile telephone number by an Internet access provided, online service provider, wireless carrier, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning mobile telephone numbers.  The potential winner may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the wireless account of the mobile telephone number associated with the winning entry.  If a dispute cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.


4.     RANDOM DRAWING: Five hundred (500) potential winners (two hundred fifty (250) winners each Entry Period) will be selected in a random drawing for the respective Entry Period on or about the drawing date as noted in the chart in rule #1 from among all eligible entries received for the respective Entry Period from all methods combined by Sponsor or its designee.  Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the potential winners will be declared the official winners of the Sweepstakes.  The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding.


5.     WINNER NOTIFICATION: Potential prize winners will be notified by text, email, phone and/or mail, using contact information provided or collected at the time of entry.  Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within seventy-two (72) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected.  Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to two (2) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.  If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such prize will be forfeited and an alternate prize winner may be selected.
