Trip includes roundtrip coach air travel between airport nearest winner’s residence (via direct or connecting service) and international airport in Italy serving the United States (e.g., Bari, Milan, Naples, Rome, Venice) and hotel accommodations in a single city/town or multiple cities/towns in Italy as part of approved itinerary. Trip may also include select ground transportation and/or sight-seeing activities (e.g., the Colosseum in Rome, Porta della Carta in Venice) and/or a stipend for meals. Approximate Retail Value of Grand Prize: $7500. (Should actual value of Grand Prize be less than $7500 based on approved and finalized travel itinerary, winner will not receive the difference in cash or otherwise.)
(b) First Prizes (7, 1 per week) – Corner Bakery Cafe gift card and one (1) large Cinnamon Crème Cake. Approximate Retail Value of First Prize: $119.99 each.
(c) Total Approximate Retail Value of All Prizes: $8339.93
(d) Odds of winning a First Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received for a given weekly random drawing. Odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.
9. PRIZE RESTRICTIONS
(a) Grand Prize trip is subject to availability, blackout dates and other restrictions. Winner must provide at least 60 days’ notice prior to intended date of departure. Grand Prize travel must be completed by December 31, 2018. All travel arrangements must be made using Sponsor’s designated travel agent. Hotel(s) is/are of Sponsor’s sole choosing and flight arrangements are subject to Sponsor’s approval in its sole discretion (airport for flight from the United States to Italy may differ from airport for flight from Italy to the United States). Although Sponsor and designated travel agent will seek to fulfill winner’s preferences, winner may therefore not receive his/her first choice of flights and/or hotel accommodations. To the extent applicable, specific activities included as part of trip to Italy may be subject to availability and additional restrictions; and, if any such activity cannot be provided for any reason even if included on approved travel itinerary, Sponsor’s liability (as well as that of designated travel agent) shall be limited to award of the remaining elements of the Grand Prize. Guest of winner (if a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian) must complete, sign and return a Liability Release and a Publicity Release (where lawful) prior to issuance of travel documents. If guest is a minor, his/her parent or legal guardian must be the Grand Prize winner. Winner and guest must travel together on approved itinerary. Should winner choose to accept Grand Prize trip without a guest for any reason, Grand Prize will be awarded in increments appropriate for one (1) traveler (i.e., the winner him/herself) and no substitute prize or compensation will be awarded; and, in such case, the value of the Grand Prize may be less than $7500. It is the sole responsibility of winner and his/her guest to have a valid U.S. passport which must be valid for six (6) months beyond date of travel as well as any other necessary travel documents. Winner and guest must conduct themselves at all times in an appropriate, well-behaved and respectable manner during the Grand Prize trip. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of prize and/or termination of trip (as applicable), without liability to Sponsor; and, Sponsor further reserves the right to pursue all available legal remedies against winner and/or guest under such circumstances. Winner and guest will not receive any award points, frequent flier miles or similar “perks” in conjunction with Grand Prize travel. Sponsor has not obtained travel insurance of any kind on behalf of winner and guest; and, should such insurance be desired, securing same is the sole responsibility of winner and guest.
(b) Corner Bakery Cafe gift card is redeemable for the purchase of food and beverages at any participating Corner Bakery Cafe restaurant location in the United States, including but not limited to the Corner Bakery Cafe restaurant location of prize claim. Gift card is subject to terms and conditions of use as indicated thereon.
(c) Large Cinnamon Crème Cake is available only during times when Bakery Sweets are conventionally sold at Corner Bakery Cafe restaurant location of prize claim. If winner cannot accept Large Cinnamon Crème Cake due to dietary restrictions, religious observance or any other reason, Sponsor will provide an alternative prize component of comparable value of Sponsor’s sole choosing.
(d) FOR BOTH GRAND AND FIRST PRIZES, SPONSOR MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND (DIRECT OR INDIRECT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED) REGARDING PRIZES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR THE INTENDED PURPOSE; FOR FIRST PRIZES, THE PRECEDING IS SUBJECT TO ANY WARRANTY PROVIDED BY SPONSOR ON ITS PRODUCTS/SERVICES WITH SUCH WARRANTY BEING LIMITED TO ITS TERMS. Grand and First Prizes must be accepted as awarded. For Grand and First Prizes, winner is solely responsible for all unspecified expenses in conjunction with prize acceptance and use. For Grand Prize, such expenses include costs of travel to and from departure airport, souvenirs and other incidental expenses in conjunction with international travel (excluded from approved and finalized travel itinerary). For First Prize, such expenses include costs of travel to and from designated Corner Bakery Cafe location to claim prize. All taxes on prize(s) are the winner’s sole responsibility. Sponsor shall advise the Internal Revenue Service via IRS 1099 Tax Form of Grand Prize winner’s receipt of Grand Prize and its value (or, as the case may be, of Grand Prize winner’s receipt of Grand Prize and First Prize, and its composite value); and, Grand Prize winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsor as to its fulfillment of such reporting obligation by providing his/her Social Security Number via IRS W9 Tax Form and otherwise. Images of prizes in Sweepstakes advertising are intended for illustrative purposes only and Sponsor disclaims any and all liability for any deviation of actual prize from depicted item. Prizes are not transferable without the express written consent of Sponsor, which may be granted or withheld in its sole discretion and without liability of any kind. Prizes are not exchangeable or redeemable for cash with the sole exception of the Corner Bakery Cafe gift card component of First Prize where such cash exchange/redemption is required by applicable law. No prize substitution except that Sponsor due to prize unavailability for any reason may substitute an alternative prize (or prize component) of comparable value for advertised prize/prize component. Limit of one (1) First Prize per family, household or address.
(a) By accepting prize(s), where legal, winner agrees to the use of winner’s name, image, photo, likeness, and other indicia of persona/identity for advertising/trade/publicity purposes by Sponsor and its designees without further compensation, notice or approval, with the understanding that such use may be in animated form and satirical (and, perhaps, unflattering to winner). The preceding includes but is not limited to First Prize winner posing for photographs at time of prize claim at applicable Corner Bakery Cafe location.
(b) By participating, entrant releases and agrees to hold harmless CBC Restaurant Corp., its parent company, subsidiaries, affiliates, franchisees, and their respective directors, officers, employees, shareholders, representatives, agents, successors and assigns, as well as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, from any and all liability arising from participating in the Sweepstakes, any Sweepstakes-related activity or the acceptance, possession, receipt or use/misuse of prize(s), if and as applicable.
