  4. Entry:  The entry period begins December 26, 2013 and ends February 14, 2014.  Only one entry per person will be accepted, regardless of the method of entry.  You may enter by: (a) completing an official entry form at any Helzberg Diamonds retail store and depositing it in a sweepstakes deposit box of the store by 9:00 pm CST on February 14, 2014; or (b) completing an online entry at http://www.helzberg.com/sweeps and submitting it electronically by 9:00 pm CST on February 14, 2014.  To constitute a valid entry, you must meet the eligibility requirements in 2 above and timely submit on the entry form in legible handwriting, your name, telephone number, email address (optional for in-store entry only) and home address (must be a physical street address as our carrier does not deliver to PO Boxes).  All late, lost, damaged, misdirected, incomplete, illegible, undelivered or destroyed entries are invalid entries, regardless of the person responsible or cause including, but not limited to, any problem or technical malfunction of any computer online system or server or technical problem or traffic congestion on the Internet or at our website.  Helzberg Diamonds reserves the rights to, at its sole discretion, cancel, suspend and/or modify this Sweepstakes or these Official Rules or disqualify any individual or entry for purposes of protecting the integrity of this Sweepstakes or addressing changes in business operations or other circumstances, to the extent allowed under applicable law.
  5. Drawing:  On or about March 10, 2014, Helzberg Diamonds will determine a prize winner by randomly selecting one entry from among all valid entries received on a nationwide basis consistent with these Official Rules.  Helzberg Diamonds has the sole authority to determine the prize winner and its decisions are final and binding in all respects.  By participating in this Sweepstakes, each entrant agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and the decisions of Helzberg Diamonds as the sponsor.
  6. Odds:  The odds that a valid entry will be selected are one out of the total number of valid entries received.  Because entries are available to all store visitors and web site visitors, the maximum number of entries and the exact odds of winning cannot be determined.

Claiming Prize; Alternate:  The winner will be notified by telephone, mail or e-mail.  To claim the prize, the prize winner must complete, sign and return as directed to Helzberg Diamonds within 30 days after the date of the first notice of award, Helzberg Diamonds’ form of Prize Acceptance Agreement that includes an affidavit of eligibility (including proof of eligibility upon request), waiver of liability, and publicity authorization and release plus an IRS Form W-9 (collectively, the “Acceptance Documents”).  If the prize winner fails to timely respond or comply with these requirements, or if Helzberg Diamonds determines the prize winner ineligible after review of the Acceptance Documents, then the prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner will be selected by random drawing as described in 5 above.  If Helzberg Diamonds is unable to award the prize after making reasonable attempts, the prize will remain un-awarded unless otherwise prohibited by law.  Final selection as a winner is subject to verification of compliance with the eligibility requirements outlined in these Official Rules.
