The use of any device to automate the entry process is prohibited.

PRIZE AND APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUES (“ARV”): One (1) grand prize (the
“Prize”) will be awarded. The winner will receive Invisalign treatment for his/her named child, who must be named on the official entry form, with an Invisalign provider chosen at Promotion Partner’s sole discretion, with an ARV of up to $5,000. In the event the winner’s named child is deemed ineligible for Invisalign treatment, is not medically suitable, or treatment is not geographically available to winner in Promotion Partner’s sole discretion, he/she will instead receive $1,000, awarded in the form of a check made payable to winner. Invisalign treatment must be initiated within twelve (12) months of winner receipt of Invisalign Voucher, or winner forfeits the prize. Treatment is considered initiated when the selected Invisalign provider ClinCheck® accepts the case.
For more information on Invisalign treatments, go to http://www.invisalign.com/howinvisalign–works. Once winner’s child’s eligibility is verified, he/she will be asked by Promotion Partner to choose three (3) potential Invisalign providers from the doctor locator at www.invisalign.com/get–started/find–a–doctor. Promotion Partner will consider winner provider choices, which may or may not be the final Invisalign provider assigned for consultation. Promotion Partner will arrange for a consultation with the assigned Invisalign provider to determine if the child is suitable for Invisalign treatment. If the winner’s child is deemed a suitable candidate for treatment by the Invisalign provider, and the winner still wishes the child to enter into treatment after learning more about Invisalign treatment during the consultation, then Promotion Partner will issue the winner an Invisalign treatment voucher (the “Invisalign Voucher”). Winner will present the Invisalign voucher to the provider, upon which treatment will begin under the direction of the Invisalign provider. Invisalign Voucher applies to all costs directly associated with Invisalign treatment, but does not include other dental work recommended by provider.
One (1) prize will be available in the Sweepstakes. The ARV of the prize is up to $5,000. Actual value of Invisalign treatment may vary and a winner will not receive the difference between the actual value and the stated ARV.
The Prize is non-transferrable, non-assignable and not redeemable for cash. No cash alternative or prize substitutions shall be available other than as stipulated above should winner’s child be ineligible for treatment; provided, however, that Sponsor retains the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value or, at Sponsor’s election, the cash value of the applicable Prize, in the event a stated Prize is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: The drawing for the grand prize winner will be conducted on or about two (2) business days following the expiration of the Promotion Period. Drawings will be conducted at Sponsor’s office in New York, NY. The potential winner of a Prize will be randomly selected from all eligible entries received from the beginning to the end of the Promotion Period. The Sponsor will attempt to contact the potential winner of a Prize by telephone or email using the contact information provided by the entrant at the time of entry. If the selected entrant cannot be reached within two (2) business days after the date of the drawing or after two (2) attempts to contact such entrant, whichever comes first, or if the selected entrant is otherwise ineligible or fails to complete the Prize Claim Documents (as defined below), Sponsor shall have the right, but not the obligation, to award the applicable Prize to another entrant selected from the remaining eligible entries. This process may continue until the available number of Prizes have been awarded. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, Sponsor shall have no obligation to award a Prize with respect to which the initial entrant selected to win that Prize cannot be reached within two (2) business days after the date of the drawing or after two (2) attempts to contact such entrant, whichever comes first, or if such entrant is otherwise ineligible or fails to complete the Prize Claim Documents. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is not received for any reason.
