For Band Videos, Entrant must have the consent of all other members of the Band featured in the Video (or the parent/legal guardians of all minor Band members) to submit the Video for purposes of this Contest;

Video must NOT contain any derogatory references to any of the Contest Entities.
Note: Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry in the Contest if Sponsor views the Video as potentially infringing or otherwise a violation or potential violation of a third party’s rights or if it deems the Video to be lacking in taste, quality, or to be otherwise objectionable.
Entrants understand that they are sharing their Videos at their sole risk. Sponsor is not responsible for any claims arising from the Video, specifically including, but not limited to, claims for intellectual property infringement and privacy rights violations, as well as violations of any social media accounts’ terms of service.
By entering the Contest, each entrant acknowledges and agrees that: (a) Sponsor is granting entrants a limited, non-exclusive license to use Sponsor’s name, product, trademarks and logos (collectively, “Sponsor IP”) in connection with, and solely as a part of, the Contest, (b) entrants shall have no right, title or interest in the Sponsor IP, and (c) any use of the Sponsor IP other than as permitted by these Official Rules may constitute copyright infringement.
Proof of submission is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt of such entry. Furthermore, Sponsor shall have no liability for any entry that is lost, intercepted or not received by the Sponsor.
4. CONTEST JUDGING: Throughout the Contest Period, representatives of Sponsor will judge all approved entries based on the following equally weighted judging criteria: originality/creativity; involvement/engagement/use of the Pringles® brand in the Video; and mass appeal of Video. The judging of entries will be conducted under the supervision of Sponsor whose decisions are final and binding in all respects relating to selections. Select Videos may be showcased on the Website during the Contest Period. Being selected as a featured Video has no bearing on the ultimate outcome of the Contest.
5. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the conclusion of the Contest Period, the one (1) Band Video in each Kroger division with the highest score in the Contest Judging will be determined as a potential Band winner; and one (1) Gold-level Solo Video with the highest score, two (2) Silver-level Solo Videos with the second and third highest scores, and three (3) Bronze-level Solo Videos with the fourth, fifth and sixth highest scores in the Contest Judging overall will be determined as the potential Solo winners at the respective Solo Video prize levels.

Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with judging criteria noted above, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. Any potential prize winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days after prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.

PRINGLES™ BATTLE OF THE COLLEGE BANDS CONTEST
Voting Terms & Conditions
DESCRIPTION: The Pringles™ Battle of the College Bands Contest (the “Contest") is a public voting contest wherein members of the general public will be invited to vote on their favorite of the two (2) featured college drumlines (each, a “Band” and collectively, the “Bands”) as pre-selected by representatives of Kellogg Company (“Sponsor”), as described herein.
HOW IT WORKS: Beginning 8/30/16 at 12:00:00 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) through 9/21/16 at 11:59:59 PM (ET) (the “Voting Period”) short videos for each Band will be posted on BattleOfTheCans.com/GameDayGreats and BattleOfTheCans.com/HarrisTeeter (collectively, the “Websites”). To place a vote in the Contest, eligible individuals must be legal United States residents who are thirteen (13) years of age or older.
By participating in the Contest, each voter unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these official terms & conditions (“Terms”) and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects.
To place your vote, during the Voting Period, go to either of the Websites and follow the on-screen instructions to locate the Contest page. At the Contest page, you will have the opportunity to review each Band’s video and to place your vote for your favorite. Limit one (1) vote per person per day during the Voting Period. For purposes of these Terms, a Day is defined as any twenty-four (24) hour period during the Voting Period beginning at 12:00:00 AM (ET) and ending at 11:59:59 PM (ET).
Any suspected or deliberate attempt to manipulate, or otherwise fraudulently tamper with the voting process, may result in disqualification of the voter and/or the participating high school, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion.
Fraudulent tampering includes but is not limited to:
Offering any type of inducement or compensation (monetarily or otherwise) to any third party, in exchange for a vote or the promise to vote;
Using a vote exchange or brokering website/application to exchange votes in an attempt to manipulate the outcome of the voting;
Votes generated by a macro, script, bot or other fraudulent means in an attempt to manipulate the outcome voting; and
Use of proxy voting.
In the event of suspected fraudulent activity, the Sponsor may disqualify a voter. If the suspected fraudulent activity does not warrant disqualification of a voter, Sponsor will determine the winner based on non-suspect votes, if possible. If voting results are corrupted to a point that a winner cannot be determined, Sponsor reserves the right to evaluate the Bands to determine the winner, at its sole discretion.
On or about 9/26/16, the Band that receives the most votes during the Voting Period will receive a $2,500 donation from the Sponsor and a pallet drop of Pringles® products (728 cans) with an approximate retail value (“ARV”) of $1,216.
The $2,500 donation must be used to fund band, academic or athletic program(s) at the receiving school. The winning school must notify Sponsor or its designee in writing of the intended use for the donation, projected number of students who will benefit from the donation per the terms of their agreement.
