2017 FORD FRONT ROW SWEEPSTAKES

OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

TIMING:  The 2017 Ford Front Row Sweepstakes (“Sweepstakes” or “Promotion”) will begin on 7/13/17 at 12:00:00 AM [midnight] Eastern Time (“ET”) and end on 10/31/17 at 11:59:59 PM ET (“Promotion Period”).

SPONSOR: Ford Motor Company, 16800 Executive Drive, Dearborn, MI 48126.

ADMINISTRATOR: Exposure Marketing & Promotion, Inc., 1000 North Opdyke Rd, Auburn Hills, MI 48326

ELIGIBILITY: The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States and District of Columbia who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older and have a valid U.S. driver’s license, as of date of entry (“Entrant”). But, in addition to the preceding eligibility criteria, an Entrant’s legal residence (as per the zip code provided by him/her on the official entry form) must be within 75 miles of the applicable concert city (i.e., Los Angeles, CA/Entry Period 1; Miami, FL/Entry Period 2; Atlanta, GA/Entry Period 3; New York, NY/Entry Period 4) in order to be entered for a chance to win tickets to the corresponding concert in that city in Entry Periods 1 - 4, as set forth below; Entrants whose legal residence is not within 75 miles of the applicable concert city are NOT eligible to win concert ticket prizes for that city (in Entry Periods 1 - 4).  Employees, directors and officers and their immediate families (spouses and siblings, parents and children and their spouses) and household members of Ford Motor Company (“Sponsor”), Billboard, GTB Agency LLC, Exposure Marketing & Promotion, Inc., and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates and companies involved in the implementation and execution of the Promotion and/or the 2017 Billboard Music Awards (collectively, the "Promotion Entities") are not eligible. Promotion is void in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and other U.S. Commonwealths, Territories and jurisdictions (including overseas military installations) and where prohibited.

AGREEMENT TO THE OFFICIAL RULES: By participating in the Promotion, each Entrant fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and the Administrator, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

TO ENTER:  Go to www.billboard.com/fordfrontrow (“Website”) and complete the official entry form with all required information, including your name, email address, zip code of your residence, and telephone number (“Entry”).  All entries must be received by 11:59:59 PM ET, on 10/31/17, subject to Entry Period deadlines as per the chart in WINNER SELECTION below. Persons may also be able to enter the Promotion at the concerts in Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; Atlanta, GA; and New York, NY which function as prizes for Entry Periods 1-4 (see PRIZES below); and, to be eligible for the Promotion, an Entry at a given concert must be effected via the provided laptop computer operated by a Sponsor/Administrator representative at the concert and must be received prior to the posted entry deadline for that concert.   

ENTRY RESTRICTIONS: THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON PER ENTRY PERIOD. MAXIMUM OF FIVE (5) ENTRIES IN TOTAL PER PERSON/EMAIL. Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than one (1) Entry per Entry Period will void all of that Entrant’s entries other than the initial Entry received for a given Entry Period. However, repeated or egregious violations of the entry limit (as determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor/Administrator) as well as acting inappropriately toward Sponsor/Administrator representative in conjunction with entry at a given concert (again, as determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor/Administrator) may result in ALL entries being declared void and disqualification from the Promotion. 

WINNER SELECTIONS: The potential winners will be selected via random drawing. There will be a separate drawing for each of the five (5) Entry Periods comprising the Promotion Period, as per the chart below. One winner will be selected in each drawing from all eligible entries received up to the entry deadline of a given Entry Period; as set forth below, for Entry Periods 1 - 4, the verified winner will receive a trip to the designated concert (including concert tickets) and the verified winner for Entry Period 5 will receive a 2017 Ford vehicle prize. For the avoidance of doubt, non-winning (eligible) entries WILL be retained for subsequent Entry Period drawing(s), with the fifth (5th) Entry Period drawing consisting of all eligible entries received during the entire Promotion Period.  Odds of winning a concert trip prize in the drawings for Entry Periods 1 - 4 or the 2017 Ford vehicle prize in the drawing for Entry Period 5 depend on the number of eligible entries received for a given Entry Period.

Concert Ticket Prizes: In addition, for each of the drawings for Entry Periods 1 - 4, ten (10) winners of concert ticket prizes (that is, ONLY concert tickets and NOT a trip to the concert city) will be selected in each drawing from all eligible entries received up to the entry deadline of a given Entry Period among Entrants whose residence is within 75 miles of the corresponding concert city (as determined by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion).  Odds of winning a concert ticket prize in the drawings for Entry Periods 1 - 4 depend on the number of eligible entries received for a given Entry Period among Entrants whose residence is within 75 miles of the corresponding concert city.

All drawings will be conducted by Administrator, an independent judging organization, on or about the corresponding dates set forth in the chart below.

WINNER NOTIFICATION:  Potential prize winners will be contacted by the Administrator by email and/or telephone. Each potential prize winner (except for concert ticket prize winners) will be required to complete and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability Release and except where prohibited by law, a Publicity Release Form as well as any additional waivers/releases that Sponsor or Administrator may require (“Affidavit/Release”) within two (2) days of notification (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon). Concert ticket prize winners MAY be required to complete and return an Affidavit/Release or Declaration of Eligibility and Liability Release and except where prohibited by law, a Publicity Release Form  (“Declaration/Release”) within three (3) days of notification (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon).  Each potential prize winner must respond to prize notification and accept prize within two (2) days (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon). If a potential prize winner fails to timely execute and return the Affidavit/Release (for concert ticket prize winners, or Declaration/Release; to the extent applicable), if he/she is ineligible to receive the prize or the potential prize winner cannot be contacted after reasonable effort as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion, prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period drawing (in the case of the Entry Period 1–4 prizes, [a] time permitting and [b] should a concert ticket prize be forfeited, the alternate winner will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries received for the applicable Entry Period whose residence is within 75 miles of the corresponding concert city.) Entrants agree that a facsimile or electronic (scanned) copy of Affidavit/Release or, alternatively, an electronic signature or affirmation, will have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS - CONCERT TRIPS: Winner and guest must travel together on the same itinerary and on the dates and times specified by Sponsor so as to attend concert on applicable date or prize will be forfeited without compensation and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting), as discussed above. AS PART OF TRIP, ALCOHOL BEVERAGES MAY BE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST; RECEIPT OF ALCOHOL BEVERAGES IS MADE CONTINGENT UPON WINNER/GUEST PROVIDING SERVER WITH VALID, GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PHOTO IDENTIFICATION ESTABLISHING THAT HE/SHE IS OF LEGAL DRINKING AGE AS WELL AS THE SERVER’S DETERMINATION IN HIS/HER INDEPENDENT JUDGMENT THAT WINNER/GUEST HAS NOT ALREADY CONSUMED TOO GREAT A QUANTITY OF ALCOHOL SO AS TO POSE A DANGER TO HIM/HERSELF OR OTHERS. SHOULD SERVER DETERMINE IN HIS/HER INDEPENDENT JUDGMENT THAT IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO SERVE ALCOHOL BEVERAGES TO WINNER OR GUEST BECAUSE OF INVALID IDENTIFICATION PROVIDED BY WINNER/GUEST, PREVIOUS ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION BY WINNER/GUEST OR FOR ANY OTHER REASON (E.G., BELLIGERENT, AGGRESSIVE OR ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOR BY WINNER/GUEST), NONE OF THE RELEASED PARTIES NOR THE SERVER SHALL HAVE ANY LIAIBILITY TO WINNER/GUEST (AND, THE RELEASED PARTIES AND SERVER MAY TAKE NECESSARY AND APPROPRIATE ACTIONS SO AS TO PROTECT THEIR RESPECTIVE LEGAL RIGHTS). Trips are subject to availability and other restrictions. Specifics of the concert trip are at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Guest of each winner will be required to sign liability release and where permitted by law a publicity release (“Release”) prior to issuance of travel documents. (Again, a facsimile or electronic (scanned) copy of Release or, alternatively, an electronic signature or affirmation, will have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.) Travel guest must be at least 21 years of age. Winner and guest agree to conduct themselves at all times in a socially responsible, appropriate and well-behaved manner, as well as following all instructions of Sponsor/Administrator and their representatives (including server, as discussed above), with the understanding that failure to do so may result in immediate termination of trip (without warning) for winner and/or guest (as appropriate) and perhaps the imposition of other legal sanctions. In the unlikely event that a given concert is cancelled, a trip to corresponding city will constitute the prize in full and no other prize will be awarded. And, in such event, winner must take trip to corresponding city within one (1) year of date of cancelled concert, giving Sponsor/Administrator at least 45 days’ advanced notice, with the understanding that dates of travel are subject to availability, blackout dates and other restrictions. If winner lives within 200 miles of corresponding concert city (as determined by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion), the winner may receive ground transfers in lieu of air travel and no additional compensation will be awarded. If winner accepts the prize without a guest (whether due to time constraints and/or other reason[s], including a guest having a “dirty” background check, as discussed in PRIZE RESTRICTIONS IN GENERAL below), no additional compensation will be awarded. In all cases, air travel and hotel accommodations will be determined by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion. All expenses and costs related to acceptance and use of prize not expressly listed above, including but not limited to, souvenirs, travel to/from departure airport, taxes and gratuities, are entirely the winner’s responsibility. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation or delay of any flight. Winners and guests will not receive bonus miles, rewards points or other “perks” in conjunction with prize travel.

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS - CONCERT TICKETS: Tickets are valid for admission only to concert on indicated date and location. In the unlikely event that a given concert is cancelled, Sponsor will award a substitute prize of its sole choosing of comparable value. All expenses and costs related to acceptance and use of prize, including but not limited to, souvenirs, travel to/from concert venue, taxes and gratuities, are entirely the winner’s responsibility. Guest of each winner MAY be required to sign a liability release and where permitted by law a publicity release (“Release”) prior to issuance of tickets. (Again, a facsimile or electronic (scanned) copy of Release or, alternatively, an electronic signature or affirmation, will have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.) Guest must be at least 21 years of age. Winner and guest agree to conduct themselves at all times in a socially responsible, appropriate and well-behaved manner, as well as following all instructions of Sponsor/Administrator and their representatives, with the understanding that failure to do so may result in immediate ejection from concert venue of winner and/or guest (as appropriate) and perhaps the imposition of other legal sanctions.  Should winner choose to attend concert without a guest, he/she will only receive one ticket and no additional compensation will be awarded.

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS - FORD VEHICLE: Winner is solely responsible for vehicle registration, license, all taxes, title and insurance fees and for all costs associated with any available upgrade/option not provided with vehicle and any other expenses related to the acceptance and use of the prize not specified. Winner must take delivery of vehicle within 30 days of notice of availability from Sponsor-selected dealer near winner’s residence or prize may be forfeited. Winner must provide valid U.S. driver's license and evidence of insurance prior to delivery. Vehicle awarded may differ from any vehicle shown in promotional materials and may take up to six months for delivery. By entering, Entrants acknowledge that operating a vehicle can be a dangerous activity and agree to accept all risk and responsibility associated with operating the vehicle. If winner is a WI resident, he/she will not be responsible for sales tax on the vehicle.

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS - IN GENERAL: Winners may be required to consent to a background check as a pre-condition to receipt of a prize. In such event, winner understands and agrees: (a) to cooperate fully with Sponsor/Administrator and their representatives and agents with regard to the background check, including by providing any and all additional information and/or consents, upon request; (b) that the decisions of Sponsor/Administrator based on the background check are final and binding in all respects and not subject to appeal, even though this may result in disqualification of entrant as a potential winner and forfeiture or the prize; and (c) should the prize be forfeited based on the background check, he/she will not receive any compensation nor will Sponsor, Administrator or any of the other Released Parties have any liability of any kind. For concert trip prizes (offered in  Entry Periods 1-4 ), Sponsor further reserves the right to condition the participation of a winner’s guest (i.e., the guest accompanying the winner on the trip to the concert) upon the guest consenting to a background check, subject to the above conditions. For the avoidance of doubt, if Sponsor in its sole discretion determines that the guest should not accompany the winner on the trip based on the results of the background check, Sponsor, Administrator and the other Released Parties shall not have any liability to such guest under any legal theory and the winner may select a replacement guest (who is at least 21 years of age and who also must comply with the background check requirement), time permitting. Prize may not be transferred or assigned. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute the prize (or prize component) with another prize/prize component of comparable or greater value if the intended prize/prize component is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. (The preceding excludes the gift card component of concert trip prizes, in those jurisdictions which mandate that gift cards may be redeemed for cash value by holder.) Winner will be solely responsible for all applicable taxes (not limited to federal, state, local and/or income) on prize, which will be reported to applicable governmental authorities as required by law. Winner (excluding concert ticket prize winners) will also be required to provide his/her Social Security number or tax ID# for tax reporting purposes; and, Sponsor will file an IRS Form 1099 with the Internal Revenue Service for the value of the prize. Except where prohibited by law, participation in the Promotion constitutes permission for Sponsor and its designees to use Entrant’s name, hometown, likeness, statements, other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review; and upon request, Entrant will provide written consent to such use. Limit of one (1) prize per family, household or email address.

GENERAL CONDITIONS / RELEASE: By participating, Entrants (a) release Promotion Entities, their respective directors, officers, agents and employees (collectively the “Released Parties”) from any and all liability for any claims, costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind caused by their participation, including the unauthorized or illegal access to personally identifiable or sensitive information or the acceptance, possession, use, or misuse of any prize; and (b) acknowledge that said parties have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee, expressed or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any prize including, but not limited to prize quality or availability. (With regard to the Sponsor and the fifth (5th) Entry Period prize, the preceding excludes any express warranty on its Ford vehicles, subject to the warranty term and other limitations indicated therein.)  Neither Released Parties nor any service providers are responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information supplied by Entrants while participating in the Promotion, incorrect or inaccurate transcription of entry information, improper recording of entry information or failure to record entry information altogether, or for any human or other error, lost data, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, any other error or malfunction, or late, lost, damaged, misdirected entries. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY TAMPER WITH THE ENTRY PROCESS, OR OTHERWISE UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROMOTION MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO COOPERATE IN THE PROSECUTION OF ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL(S) AND TO PURSUE ALL REMEDIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Multiple Entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Entries that are incomplete or corrupted are void. Sponsor and Administrator are not liable or responsible for late, invalid or misdirected entries, all of which will be disqualified. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. If for any reason the Promotion is not capable of being executed as planned, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, action of Entrants, technical failures or any other causes which in the opinion of Administrator and/or Sponsor, corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Promotion, Administrator reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any suspect entry and to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Promotion. In the event of any cancellation, termination or suspension, notice thereof will be posted on the Website and the selection of winner(s) for affected Entry Period drawing(s) will be made in a manner determined by Sponsor/Administrator, in their sole discretion, to be fair, appropriate and consistent with these Official Rules.  Entries not complying with all rules are subject to disqualification.

GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION/DISPUTES: Entrants agree that (a) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Promotion or the awarding of prizes shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan or the appropriate Michigan State Court located in Oakland County, Michigan; (b) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (c) under no circumstances will Entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and Entrant hereby waives all rights to, claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant's rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of State of Michigan, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than State of Michigan.

ENTRANT'S PERSONAL INFORMATION: Personal information collected from Entrants is subject to Ford Motor Company Privacy Statement located at http://ford.exposuremarketing.com/fordfrontrow/privacy.html. By entering the Sweepstakes, you expressly agree to the terms of the Privacy Statement.
