(the “Sweepstakes Administrator”), and their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, prize supplier(s), content provider partners, mobile competitors, distributors and advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, “Sweepstakes Parties”) are not eligible to enter or win. By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant represents and warrants that he or she meets the eligibility requirements stated in these Official Rules and acknowledges that failure to meet all eligibility requirements will disqualify participant from the Sweepstakes.

The Sweepstakes Entry Period consists of user uploaded videos featuring regular skateboard or electronic skateboards. Limit: one (1) Entry per person during the Sweepstakes Entry Period.
HOW TO ENTER: To enter, submit your first name, last name and email address through the website www.ridegenesis.com and upload a new video featuring either a regular skateboard or electronic skateboard product (the “Entry”). To qualify for the prize, the Entry which receives the highest number of likes by the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Entry Period shall win. Refer to the Sweepstakes Entry Period section in these Official Rules for details on deadlines. ENTRIES WILL ONLY BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY PERIOD IN WHICH THEY ARE RECEIVED AND WILL NOT ROLL OVER TO SUBSEQUENT SWEEPTAKES ENTRY PERIODS, IF ANY. Normal Internet access and usage charges imposed by your online service may apply.
In the event an insufficient number of eligible Entries are received for the Sweepstakes Entry Period, the prize will not be awarded. The Sponsor’s agent’s computer will be the time keeping device for the purposes of this Sweepstakes. Incomplete, damaged, altered, illegible or mechanical Entries will be disqualified. The Sponsor is not responsible for and will not be liable for Entries that are late, lost, misdirected, disqualified or contain errors. All Entries submitted become property of the Sponsor and will not be returned or acknowledged. The Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify from the Sweepstakes any and all Entries tied back to you if you entered using multiple email addresses or under multiple identities. An automated computer receipt (such as one confirming delivery of email) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Sponsor for purposes of these Official Rules.
WINNER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: The potential winner will be selected with the highest number of likes from all eligible Entries received during the Sweepstakes Entry Period. Winners will be notified via email to the potential winner’s Account within fifteen (15) days after the random drawing. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to a potential winner’s email that may interfere with winner notification. To claim the prize, potential winner will be required to confirm his or her email address and physical mailing address in the United States of America. At the sole discretion of the Sponsor, disqualification, forfeiture and the selection of an alternate winner may result from any of the following:  potential winner’s failure to respond to notification within seventy two (72) hours after its transmission;  the failure of notification due to deactivation of the potential winner’s Account prior to receipt of notification;  potential winner’s failure to provide Sweepstakes Administrator and/or Sponsor with satisfactory proof of age, identity and residency;  potential winner’s failure to validly claim the prize by deadline date, and  any other non-compliance with Official Rules. Furthermore, each winner will be required to complete, execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability and, unless prohibited by law, Publicity Release (“Affidavit/Release”) as well as any other documents which may be required by Sponsor or its Sweepstakes Administrator, all of which must be completed, executed, signed and received by Sponsor or Sweepstakes Administrator within seven (7) days of date printed on notification or he/she will be disqualified. In the event it is determined that a winner has not complied with these Official Rules, or has failed to execute and return any required documents within the specified time period, or has made false statements or an email prize notification is returned as undeliverable, that winner will be disqualified. Should a winner make any false statement(s) in any document required by Sponsor, that winner will be disqualified and required to promptly return to Sponsor his/her prize. If a winner is otherwise eligible under these Official Rules, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state of primary residence, the prize will be awarded in the name of winner's parent or legal guardian. If a winner is disqualified for any reason, at Sponsor’s discretion, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner in a separate random drawing from all non-winning eligible entries for the corresponding Entry Period.
