Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar entry methods or agents (including, but not limited to, sweepstakes or other promotion entry services) will void all entries by you. In the event of a dispute as to any online entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant.

Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holders.
If your Instagram Account is set to “private”, your Entry may not be visible to Sponsor and, therefore, will not be received by Sponsor, resulting in your failure to enter the Promotion.
