OFFICIAL RULES FOR Giveaways
Terms for Giveaways
Your participation in any Giveaway is subject to and governed by these official rules as set forth herein, along with any guidelines and additional terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) governing any applicable social media channel and those outlined in or referenced by the specific Giveaway (the "Specific Giveaway") which may also be found at www.nantucketway. Any person who shall participate in a Giveaway shall be deemed to be an entrant of that Specific Giveaway for which they have chosen to participate (“Entrant”).
Social Media Disclosure
No purchase is necessary to enter or win Giveaways offered by Nantucket Way. A purchase will not affect your chances of winning Giveaways. In other cases, purchase may be necessary for entering Giveaways. You can find information regarding whether purchase is necessary for a particular contest by checking the rules for the Specific Giveaway.
Unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms for the Specific Giveaway, Nantucket Way's Giveaways are open to legal residents of the 50 United States that are over 18 years old at the time the Specific Giveaway is being held. Giveaways are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations.
The Giveaway begins and ends on the time and date outlined in the Additional Terms for the Specific Giveaway, according to Nantucket Way. All times are listed in Massachusetts time, Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Only one entry per natural person per Giveaway unless otherwise noted in the Additional Terms for the Specific Giveaway. Multiple entries for Giveaways will not increase your chances of winning (you will still only receive one entry), unless specified in the Additional Terms for the Specific Giveaway. If you enter more than once in a Giveaway, only your last eligible entry will be counted.
How to Enter
Follow the instructions contained in the Specific Giveaway to enter. In some cases, you may be asked to enter through a social media channel. In that case, you must have an account on that social media channel. All social media channels Nantucket Way uses to launch Giveaways are free to join and Nantucket Way makes commercially reasonable efforts to make sure Giveaways follow the guidelines set forth by the social media channel for promotions of that nature. IN ALL CASES WHERE YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PLACE HASHTAGS ON THE ENTRY, ALL HASHTAGS MUST BE INCLUDED OR YOUR ENTRY WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SPECIFIC GIVEAWAY.
The odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received.
Giveaway Winner Notification and Announcement
Unless otherwise noted, Selected Entrants will be announced publicly using the social media channel on which the Specific Giveaway was launched, and contacted by way of direct message to be given instructions on how to claim their prize(s). Only one attempt to contact Selected Entrant will be made. Selected Entrant will be required to respond (as directed in the direct message) within three (3) calendar days of attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of the prize and, in such case, Sponsor may, but is not obligated to, select an alternate Selected Entrant.
The prize, the number of prizes, and the individual and total retail values of those prizes could be listed in the Additional Terms of the Specific Giveaway and/or provided upon request.

In the event of a dispute about the identity of an Entrant, each entry will be declared made by the name and relevant information submitted at time of entry. Sponsor will not make multiple attempts to contact Selected Entrant.
No substitution, transfer, or cash redemption of prize permitted, provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value should the advertised prize become unavailable for any reason.
Prizes are shipped only to the Selected Entrant via ground shipping to the United States.
Conditions of Participating
By participating, Entrants agree to be fully and unconditionally bound by these terms, the Additional Terms, and the decisions of Sponsor, and waive any right to claim ambiguity in the Giveaway or to claim vagueness or that the applicable terms were not agreed to by Entrant. Any portion of the Giveaway may be canceled, suspended and/or modified, in whole or in part, if in Nantucket Way's opinion any fraud, technical failure, or other factor beyond Our control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Giveaway. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of any Giveaway or Sponsor’s website, to be acting in violation of these terms, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Entrants may not enter with multiple identities or use any automated system, bot, or other device or artifice to enter or obtain more than the maximum number of qualified entries. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate any Giveaway and, if terminated, at its discretion, select the winner(s) either by applying the judging criteria, or, if a sweepstakes, in a random drawing from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received prior to action taken.
Disputes and Jurisdiction
Disputes regarding these terms will be governed by the internal laws of the State of Massachusetts. Decisions of Sponsor are binding and final. No Entrant in any dispute involving Sponsor shall be entitled to claim or obtain indirect, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision in these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
