OFFICIAL RULES FOR
Sun Communities, Inc. Vendor Expo Scavenger Hunt
Sun Communities, Inc. (“Sun”) will conduct its Vendor Expo Scavenger Hunt (“Contest” or “Drawing”) substantially as described in these rules. By entering or participating, each entrant or participant (“Entrant”) agrees to these official rules (the “Official Rules”) and the decisions of Sun, which are final and binding in all respects.
When submitting an entry, Entrant is required to provide complete and truthful information. Entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, false, lost, late or misdirected, deceptive or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Contest or Drawings at Sun’s sole and absolute discretion. Entries submitted by persons who do not meet the eligibility requirements (including all requirements with respect to age and residence) are void. The use of any scripts, computer programs, robotic repetitive, macro, automatic, programmed or similar automated entry methods or agents to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person or that person’s agents. Sun will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements. All entries submitted in compliance with these Official Rules and not disqualified or void are considered “Eligible Entries.” All entries are the property of Sun.
By entering the Contest or Drawings, Entrant: (a) agrees to be bound by these Official Rules and by the interpretation of these Official Rules by Sun and by the decisions of Sun, which are final and binding in all respects; (b) acknowledges compliance with these Official Rules; and (c) agrees to comply with any and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations. Winning the Prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth in these Official Rules.
If for any reason the Prizes, or any part of a Prize, is unavailable or a Prize or related event is delayed, cancelled or postponed, or for any other reason, Sun reserves the right to modify the Contest or Drawings in its sole discretion and award a substitute prize, or portion of prize, of comparable or greater value as set forth in these Official Rules. No substitution, transfer, assignment or cash equivalent of the Prize, or any portion thereof, is permitted by the Winner. Sun and the Contest or Drawings Entities shall have no responsibility or obligation to a Winner who is unable or unavailable to, or who does not for any reason, accept or utilize a Prize. In the event a potential Winner cannot accept the Prize, an alternate Winner will be randomly drawn from all remaining Eligible Entries. All costs and expenses not specifically listed above as part of the Prize are solely Winner’s responsibility. Winner agrees to comply with any additional terms and conditions applicable for attending the Event. The Prizes are provided “as is.” Entrants acknowledge that Sun have neither made nor are in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the Prizes, including any implied warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose. Any prizes pictured in advertising and other Contest Drawings materials are for illustrative purposes only.
The value of the Prize will be taxable to the Winner as income. Sun will pay, on Winner’s behalf, any federal income payroll taxes incurred on the value of the Prize. All U.S. federal, state and local tax liability, and any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance or use of the Prize not specifically provided for in these Official Rules are solely the Winner’s responsibility (regardless of whether the prize, in whole or in part, is used).
Winner is responsible for any fees required to properly register and insure a Prize, where applicable and where required. Winner may be required to furnish proof of adequate insurance coverage, according to Lessor’s requirements, before Prize is awarded.
Winner(s) will be selected randomly from a list of eligible entries in Sun’s sole discretion.
The Prize(s) will be awarded to the authorized account holder submission with the entry regardless of the individual who submitted the winning entry. The Winner will be notified within seven (7) days (or such other time specified by Sun) following the earlier of the selection of the Winner or the end of the Contest or Drawings Period by email (at the email address assigned by Sun), by phone (at the phone number on file of employment with Sun), or such other method specified by Sun, and will be required to confirm his/her email address and/or phone number.
Additionally, Sun and the Contest or Drawings Entities reserve the right to make a public announcement, announcing the Winner on either Sun public and internal websites, through the Sun Events Mobile App, or in any manner (including, without limitation, social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter)), which they deem appropriate. If the Winner cannot be reached after a reasonable effort has been exerted and/or fails to respond to confirm his/her contact information within one (1) day (or such other time specified by Sun ) from when the initial notification email is sent, the Winner forfeits the Prize, and an alternate Winner will be selected. If the alternate Winner does not comply with these Official Rules or is otherwise unable to accept the Prize, the Prize is forfeited and another alternate Winner will be selected. This Winner selection and notification process shall be continued until a Winner is confirmed. If the Prize or a prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate Winner will be selected.
The Winner (or any alternate Winner if one must be selected) is not official and shall not be confirmed as the Winner until he/she has completed, signed and returned documentation required by Sun — which may include an Affidavit of Eligibility, release of liability (except where prohibited), publicity release form, and a completed IRS W-9 form (if required), and the eligibility of the potential Winner has been verified. If the Winner (or any alternate Winner) does not complete all forms necessary within the time given and/or in the event of non-compliance by the Winner (or alternate Winner), such Winner (or alternate Winner) shall be disqualified and shall forfeit the prize, and all privileges otherwise due as a Winner shall be terminated and an alternate Winner will be chosen in a random drawing from among all of the remaining Eligible Entries. Guests in attendance are not permitted to participate.
Provided that the Winner is in compliance with the Official Rules and after having successfully proven eligibility, the Winner will be officially confirmed as the Winner. Sun expressly reserves the right to delay the announcement of the Winner for any reason it deems necessary. In addition, Sun reserves the right to select an alternate Winner in the event that any Winner fails to comply with these Official Rules.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Entrant assumes all liability for an injury or damage caused, or claimed to be caused, by participation in the Contest or Drawings, or the acceptance, receipt, or use of the Prize or any Prize component. Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, Sun and/or the Contest or Drawings Entities’ liability will be limited to the value of the Prize, and in no event shall the Contest or Drawings Entities be liable for attorney’s fees.
Sun and the Contest or Drawings Entities assume no responsibility for and will disqualify entries that are: stolen, late, lost, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, altered, tampered with, unauthorized, fraudulent, damaged, destroyed, delayed, misdirected, not delivered, not received, or that have incorrect or inaccurate entry information, whether caused by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Contest or Drawings, or by any human, mechanical or electronic error that may occur in the processing of the entries in the Contest or Drawings, or other errors appearing within the Official Rules or in the Contest or Drawings related advertisements. Sun and the Contest or Drawings Entities assume no responsibility for any typographical or other error in the printing of the offer, administration of the Contest or Drawings, errors in processing entries, identifying the Winner, in the announcement of the Prize and Winner, the delivery of the Prize, any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer systems, online systems, servers or providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any e-mail or players on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or on any web site including suncommunities.com, or any combination thereof, including, without limitation, any injury or damage to Entrant’s or any other person’s computer system/software related to or resulting from participation in, uploading any materials or downloading any materials in the Contest or Drawings. Use of any device to automate or subvert entry is prohibited and any entries received by such means will be void. Sun reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any person it suspects or finds (i) to have tampered with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or Drawings; (ii) to be acting in a disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person; (iii) to display behavior that will bring such Winner, Sun or the Contest or Drawings Entities into disgrace; (iv) to have provided inaccurate information on any legal documents submitted in connection with the Contest or Drawings; or (v) to be acting in violation of these Official Rules. ANY VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES BY A WINNER WILL RESULT IN SUCH WINNER’S DISQUALIFICATION AS A WINNER OF THE CONTEST OR DRAWINGS AND ALL PRIVILEGES AS A WINNER WILL BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.
ANY ATTEMPT BY ANY PERSON TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE CONTEST OR DRAWINGS MAY BE IN VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAW AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SUN RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK REMEDIES AND DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES) FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
