The potential winner will be contacted via Facebook Messenger and will be asked to provide his or her full name, age and mailing address within a specified time period. If a potential winner does not respond within the timeframe stated in the notification, Waterstone Mortgage Corporation may select an alternate potential winner in his or her place at random from all entries received during the Entry Period. The decision of the Drawing judges regarding entries and winner will be final.

  9. GENERAL CONDITIONS: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the drawing is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, Waterstone Mortgage Corporation may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the drawing to address the impairment and then resume the drawing in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Waterstone Mortgage Corporation reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Drawing or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Drawing may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Waterstone Mortgage Corporation reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Waterstone Mortgage Corporation’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules will not constitute a waiver of that provision. In case of a dispute as to the owner of an entry, entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the screen name from which the entry is made. The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.
