*FACEBOOK ON-PAGE SWEEPSTAKES

Official Rules

Any Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with Facebook. Information is being provided to Sponsor, not Facebook.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. ANY PROMOTION IS NOT SPONSORED BY, ENDORSED BY, ADMINISTERED BY OR OTHERWISE ASSOCIATED OR AFFILIATED WITH FACEBOOK.

1. TIMING: On-page Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) will be run as separate and distinct daily promotions, each beginning at 8 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) and ending at 11:59 p.m. ET the same day (each a “Sweepstakes Period”). The Sweepstakes daily promotions will run at different times throughout the year and will each run for one (1) day. Sponsor's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes.

2. SPONSOR: Bella Portofino, Mira Loma, CA 91752. ADMINISTRATORS: quench, 1006 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101

3. ELIGIBILITY: Any Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States (including the District of Columbia) who are at least eighteen (18) years old at the time of entry.  Employees of Bella Portofino, and any of its affiliate companies, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, in-laws, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible. Void where prohibited by law. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes participant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and by the Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

4. HOW TO ENTER: During the Sweepstakes Period, visit http://www.facebook.com and log into or create a Facebook account using your valid email address that you select to use for your Facebook account. Creating an account is free, but the use of Facebook is governed by its terms of service (available at https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms). Then, visit https://www.facebook.com/bellaportofinotuna and look for that day’s Sweepstakes timeline post on the Bella Portofino brand page. When you “Like” or comment on that day’s Sweepstakes post, as indicated in the post, you will be automatically entered into the current Sweepstakes as described therein, for that day. Your account settings must be set to “unprotected” and/or “public” in order for  your  Facebook posts  to  be  viewable  by  Sponsor  and  its  agents. Posting text on Facebook from your mobile device may incur message and data rates. Please consult your wireless service provider regarding its pricing plans. Limit: Users may enter the Sweepstakes one (1) time per day. Non-winning entries from each separate Sweepstakes will not be carried over to the subsequent Sweepstakes. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification of participant and voiding of all of participant’s entries. In the event of a dispute as to any Facebook account or email address, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register at Facebook.com or for such email address will be deemed to be the participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

5. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: After each Sweepstakes Period, the Administrator will randomly select one (1) or several potential prize winners from among all eligible entries received on that day’s Sweepstakes Period. Winner need not be present. Each potential winner will be notified on or about the date of the applicable drawing on the Facebook Timeline by a comment asking winner to provide shipping information for prize delivery via private Facebook message. If the potential winner does not respond within two (2) days of the first attempt to contact him/her, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits the prize. If a winner has not reached the age of majority in his/her state of residence, then the prize will be awarded in the name of his/her parent or legal guardian. If the potential winner fails to respond within the required time period, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize, and an alternate participant will be selected in his/her place at random from among all remaining eligible entries received during the relevant Sweepstakes Period. Prize will be fulfilled 2–4 weeks after winner confirmation.

6. PRIZE: Each prize winner will receive a prize, to be selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion with an ARV not to exceed $50. Potential prizes include, by way of example, pouches of tuna, kitchen merchandise, etc. FOR ALL PRIZES: No cash or other substitution, assignment or transfer of any prizes permitted, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize or prize component with cash or another prize of comparable or greater value. Winner is responsible for all federal, state and local taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Prizes will be awarded “as is.” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied, offered by Sponsor. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each Sweepstakes Period’s drawing. Limit: One (1) prize per person each day, and two (2) prizes per person for the duration of the Sweepstakes. Winner must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules in order to claim a prize.  

7. PUBLICITY: By entering the Sweepstakes and/or accepting prizes, each entrant grants to Sponsor (and its licensees and partners) a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual license to edit, publish, promote, republish at any time in the future, and otherwise use entrant’s name, likeness, biographical information, submission and any other information or materials provided by entrant, in any and all media now known or hereinafter devised, without territorial restriction (except where prohibited by law), for possible editorial, publicity, promotional or advertising purposes, without further permission, notice or compensation (except where prohibited by law). All submissions, including submission file and content, if applicable, will become the property of Sponsor and may be used by Sponsor or StarKist Co. for commercial purposes without payment of any kind to the participating entrants. Each entrant agrees to irrevocably and unconditionally transfer and assign to Sponsor all intellectual property and other applicable ownership rights to all information submitted during the Sweepstakes and agrees to execute and deliver such documents, certificates, assignments and other writings, and take such other actions as may be necessary or desirable to vest in Sponsor the ownership rights granted to Sponsor hereunder.

8. GENERAL CONDITIONS: Sponsor is not responsible for problems with the submissions, including but not limited to lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected entries, which will be disqualified. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, suspend or cancel the Sweepstakes and select the winner(s) from the eligible entries received prior to the modification, suspension or cancellation. Sponsor agrees to take such action in a fair and appropriate manner. In addition, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the submission process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately damage any other participant’s submission or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes is a violation of criminal and civil law, and should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

9. RELEASE AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: BY RECEIPT OF ANY PRIZE, WINNER AGREES TO RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS SPONSOR, STARKIST CO., FACEBOOK, INC.
