ELIGIBILITY:  CMC Rescue, Inc., a California corporation located at 6740 Cortona Drive, Goleta, CA 93117, is holding this Photo Contest (the “Photo Contest”) open to entrants who previously submitted images for our 2021 Rope Access Photo Challenge but were not selected as winners, and Photo Contest social media commenters voting on Facebook and Instagram.  It is not necessary for the prior entrants to submit additional photographic materials to participate. CMC reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to remove duplicate entries and discard resubmissions. This Photo Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws. Except as may otherwise be expressly required under applicable local laws of an entrant, the laws of the State of California and the United States govern this Photo Contest. 
PHOTO CONTEST: The Photo Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. PST and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on the date(s) set forth in the official Photo Contest announcement (the “Promotion Period”). The Prizes (defined below) will be awarded each week based on (1) the number of votes received among all eligible photo entries submitted during the 2021 Rope Access Photo Challenge, and (2) one person selected at random from social media commenters voting on the Photo Contest on Facebook and Instagram. Entry in the Photo Contest does not constitute entry into any other or future promotion, contest, or sweepstakes. 
DETERMINATION OF WINNER: At the end of each week, for the duration of the Photo Contest, the public will vote on the photo submissions by identifying their favorite photo in the comments section of the Throwback Thursday Series social media post. Voters must be age 18 or older to enter their selections. The Photo Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with, any social media platform on which it may appear, and all information collected as part of the Photo Challenge is strictly for CMC’s use, and is in no way being collected or used by any social media platform. Votes are based on the public’s personal subjective determinations, and only one vote is allowed per person per week. Entrants agree that submissions will be judged by the public based on the suitability of the photograph, the subject matter portrayed, and the degree to which the photo best exemplifies the essence of rope access. Signs or indications of purchasing votes or gaming the voting system in any way will disqualify the participant receiving the votes from the contest and future submissions. Each weekly winning entry will be featured on a CMC Photo Contest webpage as well as CMC social media accounts. CMC’s decisions are final on all matters relating to this Photo Contest. Potential weekly winners will be notified promptly via the email address provided with their submission after the conclusion of each week during the Promotion Period. Potential winners will be required to sign an affidavit of eligibility, acknowledgement and award of prize, liability release and consent form, and any other documents reasonably required by CMC, and return such forms, properly executed, within five (5) business days of issuance of notification. Non-compliance within this time frame or with the Official Rules, or if the Prize or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, will result in the entrant being disqualified, and the Prize will be awarded to a potential alternate winner. Odds of winning will depend on the number of votes received through comments made on Facebook and Instagram. If an entrant changes his/her email address or social media account after he/she enters this Photo Contest, it is his/her sole responsibility to notify CMC by postal mailing notice to the address (listed below) to be received by the end of the Promotion Period. CMC shall have no liability for a winner’s failure to receive notices due to winners’ spam, junk e-mail, or other security settings, or for winners’ provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. 
PRIZES: One (1) winner will be chosen per week during the Promotion Period to receive a prize consisting of a CMC Skyper Tech Pack (the “Prize(s)”). The Prize is open to anyone age 18 or older that participated in the 2021 Rope Access Photo Challenge. Also, one (1) additional winner will be randomly selected each week during the Promotion Period to receive a Prize.  This Prize is open to anyone age 18 or older that follows CMC on social media and votes on the Photo Contest by posting their comments on Facebook and Instagram during promotional period. While markets are subject to change, the approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the Prize(s) is $159 USD.  CMC will notify potential winners of the ARV of their Prize upon award. The ARV will at no point exceed $500.  Prizes are nontransferable and must be accepted as awarded. Prizes cannot be returned or exchanged for store credit with CMC. No cash or other substitution may be made. Prizes will be awarded only if the potential winner fully complies with these Official Rules, including returning all forms requested by CMC under these Official Rules. Any Prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Photo Contest materials are for illustrative purposes only.  
THE WINNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR REPORTING AND PAYING ANY FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL TAXES (INCLUDING INCOME TAX) THAT MAY APPLY TO ACCEPTING A PRIZE. CMC IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR, AND WILL NOT PAY, ANY SUCH TAXES. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL PRIZES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND CMC HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. CMC’s final determination of winning entry selections are final and binding, subject to these Official Rules. In the event that a winning entry is discovered to be invalid for any reason whatsoever, or the person who submitted the winning entry fails to comply with these Official Rules prior to delivery of the Prize, the Prize may be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. 
RISKS: Many of the activities for which a Prize may be used pose a substantial risk of serious injury or death.  Prizes are intended for use by professionals trained and experienced in the use, inspection, and maintenance of such products. All individuals using a Prize must have a professional level of skill. Technical rescue, rappelling, climbing, and the training involved are hazardous activities.

Released Parties are not responsible for technical, hardware or software malfunctions, telephone failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, inability to access a website, inability to submit an entry, or fraud, incomplete, garbled, or delayed computer transmissions or inaccurate transcription of entry information, whether caused by CMC, entrants, users, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Photo Contest or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of submissions which may damage a user’s system or limit an entrant’s ability to participate in the Photo Contest. Should any portion of the Photo Contest be, in CMC’s sole opinion, compromised by virus, worms, bugs, non-authorized human intervention or other causes which, in the sole opinion of the CMC, corrupt or impair the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper play, or submission of entries, or should the Photo Contest be unable to run as planned for any other reason, CMC reserves the right at its sole discretion to terminate the Photo Contest and, if terminated, at its discretion, select the potential winner in a random drawing from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to the action taken. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR ANY ONLINE SERVICE RELATED TO THE PHOTO CONTEST OR TO UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PHOTO CONTEST MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, CMC RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES (INCLUDING ATTORNEY’S FEES) FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, INCLUDING CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. CMC’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of such term or any other provision. CMC reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who violates the rules or interferes with the Photo Contest in any manner. If an entrant is disqualified, CMC reserves the right to terminate such entrant’s eligibility to participate in the Photo Contest. Any attempt by an individual to access any website associated with the Photo Contest via a bot script or other brute force attack or any other unauthorized means will result in that individual’s IP address becoming ineligible. Use of automated entry devices or programs is prohibited.
