Crown Noire Cosmetics Giveaways Official Rules
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
1. Overview: Crown Noire Cosmetics (“Sponsor”) will offer a series of different Giveaways (each a “Giveaway”) at different times during the period of 6/01/2022 to 12/31/2022. Each Giveaway is separate. Entry into one Giveaway is not entry into any other Giveaway. These Official Rules apply to each separate Giveaway. Details on the exact dates for any Giveaway, along with the prize(s) available in that Giveaway, and any other details will be listed on @crownnoirecosmetics (“Sponsor’s Post”). Be sure to check back regularly to see what is being offered at any given time. The Sponsor’s Post may sometimes appear on the Instagram page of one or more influencers working with Sponsor.
2. Eligibility: Only legal residents of the United States, excluding RI, who are 18 or older may enter any Giveaway. Employees and directors of Sponsor or any of its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, advertising, promotion, or production agencies (and their respective IRS dependents, immediate family members and individuals residing in their same household) are not eligible to participate. Void in RI and where prohibited by law. All applicable federal, state and local laws apply.
3. Giveaway Period: Each Giveaway will begin and end at the dates and times listed on Sponsor’s Post for that particular Giveaway. If no start time is listed, then the Giveaway begins when the Sponsor’s Post is made. All times are measured by Mountain Time (“MST”). The Sponsor’s database computer is the official timekeeping device for any Giveaway.
4. How to Enter: To enter a Giveaway during the applicable Giveaway Period, follow the instructions in Sponsor’s Post, which in each case will require posting your own comment to the Sponsor’s Post. An Instagram account is required, which is free. Instagram is not a sponsor of or associated in any way with any Giveaway. Limit one (1) entry per person and per Instagram account per Giveaway.
If you are entering via social media, you must have an account on the applicable social media platform. All social media platforms that Sponsor uses are free to join and use. If you are asked to include hashtag(s) in an entry, you must include each of the required hashtags for your entry to be included in the applicable Giveaway. If you are asked to post a photo or other content on your own social media page, you must make sure your account is set to “Public” so your entry can be viewed by Sponsor and included in the applicable Giveaway.
All images, text, photos, video or other content (“Content”) you post or submit in connection with your entry must comply with Instagram’s terms for acceptable content and, without limiting the foregoing, must meet the following requirements: (a) be you exclusive original work of; (b) be in keeping with the Sponsor’s image, (c) not defame or invade publicity rights or privacy of any person, living or deceased, or otherwise infringe upon the rights of any person or entity, including but not limited to copyright, trademark, privacy or publicity, (d) not contain any commercial/corporate advertising, including but not limited to corporate logos, brand names, and slogans other than the Sponsor's, (e) not depict any conduct or content that is unsafe, immoral, obscene or otherwise inappropriate as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion; and (f) not have been submitted in any other promotion won any prize.
You represent and warrant that you have obtained permission from any and all recognizable persons other than yourself depicted or mentioned in any Content you post and agree, upon request, to furnish written proof of such permission. Failure to meet any of the requirements above, or to otherwise comply with these Official Rules, may result in disqualification. Sponsor reserves the right to delete or blur any inappropriate content from a submission without disqualifying the entry where, in Sponsor’s determination, such change does not materially alter the submission and the entrant has otherwise attempted in good faith to comply with these Official Rules.
Incomplete submissions are void. By participating in any Giveaway, you unconditionally accept and agree to comply with and abide by these Official Rules, the additional details on the Sponsor’s Post for the applicable Giveaway, and all decisions of the judges, which are final and binding in all respects. Any entries for any Giveaway must be received during the relevant Giveaway Period. Proof of transmission is not proof of receipt. Any attempt to enter more than the permitted number of times in any Giveaway with multiple identities, email addresses, social media accounts, or by any other means, may result in disqualification. Use of any macro, bot, script or other automated means to submit entries is prohibited. Each entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Instagram account used to submit the entry. An “authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person to whom the email address is assigned by an internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain of the email address associated with the social media account used to enter.

Each potential winner must respond to the initial notification within 72 hours or prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner. Failure to comply when requested may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.
