"#ImAZipster" sweepstakes rules
By participating in the “#ImAZipster” sweepstakes (the “Promotion”), each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Zipcar, Inc. (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor is responsible for the collection of entries and the overall administration of the Promotion. Entrants should look solely to Sponsor with any questions, comments or problems related to the Promotion.
1. ELIGIBILITY: Entry into the Promotion is open to both members and non-members of Zipcar; purchase of a Zipcar membership is not necessary to enter the Contest and a purchase will not improve the ability of an Entrant to win. However, each Entrant selected as a winner of a prize that includes Zipcar driving credit or free days must have a Zipcar membership to collect such prize; any Entrant who does not have a Zipcar membership will forfeit such prize and be awarded an alternate prize (based on availability and at Sponsor’s sole discretion) and Sponsor shall select an alternative winner. Employees of Sponsor and its parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, and related companies, agencies, and the judging panel and immediate families (defined as parents, children, siblings and spouse and their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and those living in the same household, whether or not related, are not eligible to enter or win. Void in Puerto Rico, all U.S. territories and possessions and overseas military installations and where prohibited or restricted by law.
2. TIMING: The Promotion begins September 8, 2016 at 12:00 AM EST and will end September 30, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST (the “Promotion Period”). Select winners will be chosen at random and Sponsor will notify the winners via email on or about October 15, 2016.
3. HOW TO ENTER: There are two ways to enter this contest:
1. Entrants need tag photos of themselves or with friends on twitter, Instagram or Facebook on their Ziptrip and must include the #ImAZipster. Entries must be submitted during the Promotional Period and post between the dates of September 8, 2016 at 12:00 AM EST and September 30, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST. Each photo or post counts as one submission.
2. Each Zipcar reservation which is utilized during September 8, 2016 through September, 30, 2016 will automatically be entered to win. Cancelled or no-show reservations do not qualify. The entry will be associated with the driver of the reservation, not the account holder in instances where they differ. Each valid Zipcar reservation equates to one entry.;
4. BY SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY, YOU AGREE TO THESE OFFICIAL RULES AND ANY DECISION OF SPONSOR. Your Entry must be received by Zipcar by September 30, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST.
Entrants are subject to verification that they are qualified participants as defined by these Official Rules. Entries will also be verified for accuracy to confirm that the Entrant supplied Sponsor with their correct contact information. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries. Final determination of winners is at the Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
5. GRANT OF RIGHTS: Each Entrant is responsible for his or her Entry and the consequences of posting or publishing it. By submitting an Entry to Sponsor, Entrant (i) waives any and all rights in and to any material submitted by Entrant in connection with this Promotion (including all moral and other rights of authorship); (ii) hereby acknowledges and agrees that Entries (including material submitted by Entrant in connection with the Promotion) become Sponsor’s property and will not be returned; and (iii) grants, transfers and conveys to Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license and the absolute right to edit, reproduce, modify, publish, exploit, create derivative works from, display in whole or in part, and use an Entry, voice, actions, likeness, name, appearance, biographical material, written works, and all other information or materials that Entrant has provided or may provide in connection with this Promotion, and the right to secure copyright registrations thereto in perpetuity, including, without limitation, the right to use the Entry, in whole or in part, for any and all purposes and in any form, media or technology, now known or hereafter devised, and in any manner including for promotional, marketing and commercial purposes, without further approval, permission or consideration, throughout the universe in perpetuity without additional compensation, notification or permission.

6. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: Entrant must have permission from all individuals that appear in the Entry (if any) to use their name and likeness in the Entry and to grant the rights set forth herein. If requested, Entrant must be able to provide such permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor. Entrant must not include any trademarked or copyrighted material in the Entry unless Entrant has the rights to use them for the Entry and transfer such rights to Sponsor as may be required. Sponsor has the right in its sole discretion to determine if any Entry is not appropriate for publication on the Site or for any other public release and if Entry is in compliance with these Official Rules.
