By entering this Promotion, Entrants indicate their full and unconditional agreement to, and acceptance of, these Official Terms and Conditions and the decisions of the Sponsor which are final and binding in all respects. Winning the Monthly Prize (defined in the “MONTHLY PRIZE” section below) is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

MONTHLY PRIZE(S):  One prize worth approximately $100 will be awarded per month in the months of the Entry Timeline in PROMOTION PERIOD section. The Official Winner will be notified of the specifics of each monthly prize and its accompanying terms and conditions at the time of the prize award. The value associated with the Monthly Prize(s) is taxable as income and the Official Winner is solely responsible for any taxes, including, but not limited to, all applicable federal, state and local taxes that become due with respect to the value of the Monthly Prize(s). The Sponsor, or a third party acting on its behalf, may be required to report the value of the Monthly Prize(s) to the Internal Revenue Service in the year the Monthly Prize(s) is received by the Official Winner; and, in such case, the value of the Monthly Prize(s) will be reported to the Official Winner and the Internal Revenue Service in the form of a Form 1099 and/or other applicable tax forms.

SELECTION:  The Official Winner of each monthly drawing will be randomly selected by Platinum Series Auto by Machimpex USA from among all eligible entries received before the deadline for entry associated with that drawing. Platinum Series Auto by Machimpex USA will use a random number generator (RNG) to conduct the selection.

For each monthly drawing, Platinum Series Auto by Machimpex USA will use the RNG to randomly select a group of numbered entries from the database. The group of numbered entries will include one potential winner plus a number of alternates. Platinum Series Auto and its agents and contractors will not provide any personally identifying information about any entrant as part of the random selection process.

Platinum Series Auto will contact the entrant whose numerical identifier is selected as the potential winning number after determining from its preliminary review that the potential winner appears eligible to win a prize. A potential winner may be required to verify actual purchase and other information confirming eligibility before being named as an Official Winner.

VERIFICATION: Platinum Series Auto by Machimpex USA will review and attempt to confirm potential winner information and eligibility prior to declaring an Official Winner for each prize.

Verification of all information and eligibility criteria must be established to the sole satisfaction of Platinum Series Auto before a potential winner is named an Official Winner or entitled to claim any prize.

A participant 18 years or older who is selected as a potential winner will be contacted by a Platinum Series Auto representative to initiate the verification process. Platinum Series Auto will use the contact information provided by the participant at the time of registration to initiate contact by email.

Platinum Series Auto must communicate by email with a potential winner to verify the potential winner’s eligibility to win.

A potential winner will have 24 hours from the time Platinum Series Auto sends its initial email communication to respond to Platinum Series Auto. A potential winner must respond by contacting Platinum Series Auto by email within the 24-hour period and at the email provided in the Platinum Series Auto communication. If the potential winner does not respond by email contact with Platinum Series Auto within 24 hours and as instructed, the potential winner will forfeit the chance to win any prize and Platinum Series Auto will select an alternate as the potential winner.

The burden of demonstrating eligibility on other criteria in a timely manner and to the satisfaction of Platinum Series Auto by Machimpex USA rests with the potential winner.

A potential winner who is determined by Platinum Series Auto to be eligible to win will be required to provide proof of identity to affirm eligibility on all other eligibility criteria prior to being declared an Official Winner. Platinum Series Auto will provide a potential winner with electronic or other means for establishing such proof in a timely manner and in any case prior to the scheduled Announcement Date for the drawing in question.

In the event that Platinum Series Auto determines at any point that a potential winner’s entry is invalid or ineligible, or if Platinum Series Auto is unable to contact a potential winner or unable to validate the winner’s eligibility based upon information provided by the potential winner, or if a potential winner does not wish to receive a prize, or refuses or fails to provide verification information satisfactory to Platinum Series Auto, or if a potential winner does not respond to the initial contact by Platinum Series Auto or otherwise does not provide information required to verify eligibility within the timelines set by Platinum Series Auto, Platinum Series Auto may deem the potential winner ineligible and the potential winner will forfeit any claim to prizes associated with the Promotion. Platinum Series Auto shall then select the next ranked alternate potential winner from among the alternates and commence the verification and confirmation process with the newly selected potential winner. Alternate winners shall continue to be selected in the same manner until an Official Winner for the drawing has been confirmed.

Platinum Series Auto will have a limited period of time to locate and verify the eligibility of potential winners due to the fixed monthly schedule for drawing and announcing Official Winners. The decision to deem a potential winner ineligible or finally to declare an Official Winner shall be at the sole discretion of Platinum Series Auto. A decision by Platinum Series Auto to declare a participant ineligible or disqualified for any reason shall be final and not subject to appeal.

Once Platinum Series Auto has to their own satisfaction confirmed a potential winner’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Terms and Conditions, Platinum Series Auto will declare a potential winner to be an Official Winner of the Platinum Series Auto QR Code Monthly Giveaway.
