Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of winners. Participation constitutes Entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and to Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest.
ENTRY: During the Contest Period, an eligible entrant must follow the @CapitalOneTech Twitter account. Entrant must then count the number of “anomalies” they find in the scavenger hunt article and tweet the related Twitter post with their answer, tagging @CapitalOneTech.
Limit one (1) entry per person during the Contest Period. Entrant must provide all required information, including without limitation first and last name and email address, to be eligible to enter. Entries must be submitted by the Entrant. Entrants may not use multiple accounts to enter the Contest. Entrant may be asked to answer optional questions and/or register for future notices of online promotions; however, you need not answer these questions or agree to receive future emails in order to be eligible for entry in the Contest.
By entering, each Entrant warrants and represents that their entry does not contain anyone else’s personally identifiable information or any material that would defame or otherwise violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party, including patents, copyrights, trademarks or rights of privacy or publicity, and will not violate any federal, state or local laws or ordinances. Entrants further warrant and represent that they have secured the requisite consent from any third party referenced in their entries. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole and unfettered discretion to disqualify any entry that it believes contains obscene, offensive or inappropriate content, that does not comply with these Official Rules, or that is not consistent with the spirit or theme of the Contest.
Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the permitted number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, addresses or any other method will void all of that Entrant’s entries and that Entrant may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion. Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Normal Internet, phone and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. Incomplete, illegible, corrupted, or untimely entries are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen, misdirected or illegible entries; lost, interrupted or unavailable network, server or other connections; or miscommunications, computer or software malfunctions, telephone transmission problems, technical failures, garbled transmissions, damage to a user’s computer equipment (software or hardware), or other errors or malfunctions of any kind, whether human, mechanical, electronic or otherwise. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the Entrant or participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider or other organization (which may include an employer) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working or inactive email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win.
By participating in this Contest, Entrant acknowledges and agrees that they will clearly and conspicuously disclose that they are participating in this Contest in any online social sharing interaction that references the Contest or is used to obtain entries in connection with this Contest. At a minimum, the hashtag “#CapitalOneContest” should be included in all social media communications sent pursuant to the Contest. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any Entrant who does not adequately disclose their participation in this Contest while engaging in any online social sharing interaction during the Contest Period.
SELECTION OF WINNER: The first fifty (50) people to respond with the correct answer will be named a potential winner.
Sponsor will notify potential winners by direct message on Twitter by 5 PM on 12/7/2021. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. If a potential winner does not respond within 24 hours after the first attempt to notify them that they have been selected to receive a prize, that potential winner will be deemed to have forfeited the prize, and Sponsor will select the next in time eligible entry as the alternate potential winner. Any alternate potential winner will also have 24 hours to claim the prize and must satisfy all eligibility requirements.
Potential winners are subject to verification. Failure by any potential winner to respond to Sponsor’s notification direct message or return the Affidavit in a timely manner, or if any message intended for a winner is returned as undeliverable, then the applicable prize may be forfeited, and Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, select an alternate winner. If Sponsor is unable to determine and verify a potential winner after repeated alternate attempts or if Sponsor fails to receive a sufficient number of entries to correspond to the number of prize(s) available to be awarded, Sponsor reserves the right to not award all prize(s). Sponsor is not responsible for any change of contact address of Entrants, nor is Sponsor responsible for any lost or damaged messages, or for any messages intended for Entrants that are returned as undeliverable.
ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST. AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE.
PRIZES: Each winner will receive one tshirt. The approximate retail value of each prize is Fifteen dollars ($15).
PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: Limit one (1) prize per person, per household. Any and all applicable federal, state and local taxes and all fees and expenses related to acceptance and use of prize not specifically stated herein are the responsibility solely of winner. Prize cannot be substituted, assigned, transferred or redeemed for cash; however, Sponsor reserves the right to make equivalent prize substitutions at its sole discretion. Sponsor will not replace any lost or stolen prizes or components of a prize(s). Prize cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer. Only the number of prizes stated in these Official Rules is available to be won in the Contest. If, by reason of a print or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number set forth in these Official Rules, an alternate winner will be selected in accordance with the winner selection method described above from among all eligible claimants making purportedly valid claims to award the advertised number of prizes available. Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or cancellation of the prize delivery due to unforeseen circumstances, or those outside of Sponsor’s control. If the fulfilling merchant cancels the order for reasons out of Sponsor’s control, the prize will not be delivered and no additional compensation will be provided.

Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Contest, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Contest, as determined by Sponsor. If, for any reason, the Contest cannot be run as planned, Sponsor may disqualify any suspect entries and (a) suspend the Contest and modify the Contest to address the impairment, then resume the Contest in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; and/or (b) terminate the Contest and award the prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received up to the time of the impairment.
