OC Eats – Terms and Conditions

TERMS FOR ENTRY
You are eligible to enter any One Country Eats contest if you are 18 years of age or older and are a legal United States resident residing in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia at the time of entry.

One Country reserves the right to not accept entries that are similar or have too much likeness (as determined by One Country). In the event that multiple recipes with similar ingredients and directions are submitted, the first entry to be submitted will qualify as the accepted entry.

RECIPE REQUIREMENTS
Your original recipe must be related to the current One Country Eats contest, and must be, to your knowledge, an original, unique recipe.

In order for your entry to be accepted, you must provide all requested details required for your entry. Photos of your entry are encouraged, but not required.

HOW WILL ENTRIES BE JUDGED?
One Country will review all entries and select a limited number of eligible entries to become finalists (each, a “Finalist”). All finalists will be notified via email or Facebook.

Finalists will then be entered into the final round of the competition and voted upon by the One Country audience and related parties to determine the grand prize winner.

GENERAL CONDITIONS
By entering, you agree to release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless One Country or other participating sponsors and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, their respective representatives and agents, advertising and promotion agencies, promotion partners and prize suppliers, and all of their respective affiliated companies, employees, officers, directors and shareholders, from and against all claims and damages or liability arising in connection with your participation and/or entry in the contest and/or your receipt or use of any prize awarded in this contest or due to any injuries, damages or losses to any person (including death) or property of any kind resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from acceptance, possession, misuse or use of any prize or participation in any contest-related activity or participation in this contest.

By entering any One Country Eats contest, you are giving consent and releasing the rights for your entry to be shared on www.onecountry.com and all related social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, etc).

By submitting your Entry, you accept all Contest rules and agree to be bound by the decisions of the judges, which will be final. You also agree that your entry or entries become the sole property of One Country, and One Country reserves the right to edit, adapt, copyright, publish, transfer and use any or all of them, and allow others to do so, without compensation. Except where prohibited, accepting a prize in the Contest constitutes your consent for Sponsors and their nominees to use your Entry, name, likeness, hometown, state, and any content gathered by Sponsors for promotional purposes in any media without further payment or consideration.

Sponsors are not responsible for any changes or effects caused to the entrant’s computer system as a result of submitting electronic entries. Only entries submitted via the electronic Entry form provided on the website above will be accepted. If the Contest site fails for any reason any Entry received during that time will be deemed a defective Entry. Entries submitted via any other method, including but not limited to U.S. Postal Service, facsimile or other express delivery services, will NOT be accepted. Sponsors and their promotion agencies are not responsible for phone, network, electronic or computer hardware or software failure, or technical failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, fraud, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions, whether caused by Sponsors, entrants or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the promotion or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of submissions which may damage a user’s system or limit a participant’s ability to participate in the promotion.

One Country may prohibit any individual from participating in the Contest or winning a prize if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said individual is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the contest by cheating, hacking, deception, or other unfair practices; violates the Official Rules; or acts in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner at any time during the Contest, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person.

Except where prohibited, you agree that: (1) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Contest or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action; (2) 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 (3) under no circumstances will you be permitted to obtain awards for, and you hereby waive all rights to claim, indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased.

One Country reserves the right to cancel this promotion or any part of this promotion at its sole discretion.

WARNING: Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, One Country reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. One Country’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
