NOTE: To be eligible, entries must be received during the Sweepstakes Period. Each entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the natural person assigned the Twitter or Facebook account associated with the entry. No software-generated, robotic, programmed, script, macro or other automated online or text message entries are permitted. Limit: One (1) entry per person, per platform. Sponsor discourages the creation of multiple accounts. All entries discovered to have been submitted by the same individual using multiple accounts on a single platform will be disqualified.  All entries submitted in accordance with these Official Rules shall be collectively hereinafter referred to as “Eligible Entries.” The odds of winning the Sweepstakes depend on the number of Eligible Entries received.

Ineligible responses include responses that are unresponsive to the question posed, as well as those that are, in whole or in part, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, hateful, embarrassing to another person or entity, deceptive, obscene, invasive of another’s privacy, tortuous, contains racial slurs, or contains explicit or graphic descriptions or accounts of, sexual acts, or is not within the spirit of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in Sponsor’s sole discretion.

  1. WINNER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION: One (1) potential winner will be randomly selected from among all Eligible Entries to receive one Prize (as defined below). Eligible Entries must meet the criteria set forth in the Facebook post and these Official Rules, and may not consist of single words submitted in an attempt to have the first entry. If there is ever a conflict between the Facebook post and the Official Rules, the terms of the Facebook post will control, to the extent that the terms are inconsistent. If no Eligible Entries are received during the Sweepstakes Period, then no Prize will be awarded. The Sponsor will contact the potential winner either (1) via direct message on Twitter or (2) by posting a comment below the potential winner’s original message on Facebook asking the potential winner to direct message the Sponsor to receive prize details. The Sponsor will contact the potential winner immediately following the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period. Failure to respond to the contact within 5 hours or failure to accept the Prize may result in the selection of an alternate potential winner. Where permitted by law, potential Prize winners may be required to submit a publicity release and limitation of liability. Failure to complete such documents may also result in the selection of an alternate potential winner in the manner described above.
  2. PRIZE: Odds of winning depend on number of Eligible Entries received. As noted on the SoCal Honda Dealers Twitter page, one (1) potential winner will be randomly selected to receive two (2) tickets to attend an Anaheim Ducks hockey game at The Honda Center in Anaheim taking place on Friday, December 3rd, 2021 (the “Prize”). The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of each Prize is $70.00. Actual Prize value may vary.

Sponsor reserves the right to not seek an alternate potential Prize winner in the event that the individual originally selected is disqualified, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prize may not be substituted, and is neither transferable nor redeemable for cash. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a Prize of equal or greater value. The Prize winner is responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes associated with the Prize. The Prize winner is solely responsible for all fees and expenses including, but not limited to taxes, fees, meals, gratuities, insurance, incidentals, and transportation, if any, arising out of, or resulting from, acceptance or use of the Prize unless such item is specifically stated as being included with the Prize when the Prize is announced on the SoCal Honda Dealers Facebook page.
