2. How to Enter
To enter, visit the site http://usa.loccitane.com/holiday-minisite-v2,82,1,55996,503532.htm between November 10, 2013 at 12:01 EST and December 23, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. EST and complete the entry form through the sweepstakes page. Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes. Only one (1) entry per person/email address is permitted during the entry period. Entries with duplicate email addresses or multiple entries using different email addresses for a single individual will be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

All entries and requests become Sponsor’s property and will not be acknowledged or returned. In the event of a dispute over who submitted an entry, the entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at time of entry. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an internet access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Winner may be required to show proof that he/she is the authorized account holder.

3. Selection of Winner
Up to two (2) grand prize winners will be selected in a random drawing. Winners are selected by a computer-based algorithm that independently determines for each entrant at or about the time of entry whether he or she has won a grand prize, with a 1:500,000 chance of winning. Sponsor does not guarantee that there will be any grand prize winners, and it is possible that there will be none or only one grand prize winner. If both grand prizes are awarded to the winners, then Sponsor will immediately terminate the Sweepstakes. Otherwise, the Sweepstakes will terminate at the time indicated above in paragraph 2.

Grand prize winners will be notified by e-mail and will be given instructions on how to claim the prize. Winners will be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability release (and, where permitted, a publicity release) within five (5) business days of the date on the notification or prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. If a winner cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the requested documents within the required time period, the prize is returned as undeliverable, or he/she refuses his/her prize for any reason, winner forfeits the prize and the Sponsor will select an alternate winner by random drawing. A winner is not an official winner (“Official Winner”) until winner’s eligibility has been verified and winner has been notified that verification is complete. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process.

4. Prize
Up to two (2) grand prize winners will receive one year’s worth of one product from each of the three product lines chosen (listed below). Grand prize winner(s) will make two selections for the grand prize. The first selection will be of any three product lines from the three product categories.  This first selection is done by the entrant at the time of entering the Sweepstakes, and cannot be altered or changed.
