Employees of insightCuba (“Sponsor”) and/or Masala Expeditions (“Sponsor”), partners, affiliate companies, suppliers, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible. Subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Void where prohibited. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. The Promotion consists of a sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”).

2. Timing: The Promotion begins on May 1, 2018 and ends on June 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. ET (the “Promotion Period”). The Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for this Promotion.

3. How to Enter: During the Promotion Period, participants must visit the sweepstakes page and complete and submit the online registration form, including name and valid email address. Once you fill out the registration form in its entirety and submit it, you will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes, which is logged into Sponsor’s database. Limit: Each participant is eligible to receive one (1) Sweepstakes entry during the Promotion Period through the registration form. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of plays/entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s plays/entries and that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any registration or play, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the registrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

4. Sweepstakes Drawing: The decisions of the Sponsor as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the selection of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Sponsor will randomly select one (1) potential Winner from all eligible entries on or around June 15, 2018.

5. ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION.

SPONSOR WILL NOT ACCEPT SCREEN SHOTS OR OTHER EVIDENCE OF WINNING IN LIEU OF ITS VALIDATION PROCESS. ANY PLAY THAT OCCURS AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED FOR ANY REASON WILL BE DEEMED A DEFECTIVE PLAY, VOIDED, AND WILL NOT BE HONORED.

6. Verification of Potential Winners: Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Each potential winner will be notified by email. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, or prize is returned as undeliverable, such potential winner forfeits the prize.

All alternate potential winners are subject to all requirements set forth in these Official Rules.
