Employees, officers or directors of Ortho Molecular Products, Inc. (“Sponsor”), or any of its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, or any advertising or promotion agencies involved in this Contest (collectively, the “Contest Entities”), as well as the immediate family and household members of each such person, are not eligible to participate. Void where prohibited.

HOW TO ENTER:During the Contest Period, login to Instagram (accounts are free) and upload/post your original photo of yourself showing how you "breathe clearly" ("Theme"). The photo must include you holding either (a) a package of Natural D-Hist with the label legible, or (b) a piece of paper that legibly says "Natural D-Hist." Also, be sure to include the hashtag #DHISTContest when you post your photo so that we can find your photo. Only photos with the hashtag can be counted as entries. Your Instagram account must be set to "Public" so the judges can see your photo.  

Limit 5 entries per person, per email address, and per registered Instagram account. Additional entry attempts from the same person, address or account will be disqualified.  Entrants are prohibited from using multiple names, email addresses or other means to enter more than once.  Any attempt to do so is grounds for disqualification. Use of any macro, bot, script or other automated means to submit entries is prohibited. Proof of submission is not proof of receipt. Sponsor's database computer is the official time-keeping device for the Contest. Entries will not be acknowledged or returned. In the event of a dispute over the identity of an entrant, entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Instagram account used to post the entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address or other similar account associated with the relevant social media account.

ENTRY/PHOTO REQUIREMENTS: All photos, captions or other entry submissions must: (a) be the exclusive original work of the entrant; (b) be in keeping with the Sponsor’s image, (c) not defame or invade publicity rights or privacy of any person, living or deceased, or otherwise infringe upon the rights of any person or entity, including but not limited to copyright, trademark, privacy or publicity, (d) not contain any commercial/corporate advertising, including but not limited to corporate logos, brand names, and slogans other than the Sponsor's, (e) not depict any conduct or content that is unsafe, immoral, obscene or otherwise inappropriate as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion; and (f) not have been submitted in any other contest or won any prize. 

Each entrant represents and warrants that he/she has obtained permission from any and all recognizable persons other than the entrant depicted or mentioned in a submitted photo or caption and agrees, upon request, to furnish written proof of such permission.  Failure to meet any of the requirements above, or to otherwise comply with these Official Rules, may result in disqualification.  Sponsor reserves the right to delete or blur any inappropriate content from a submission without disqualifying the entry where, in Sponsor’s determination, such change does not materially alter the submission and the entrant has otherwise attempted in good faith to comply with these Official Rules.

Publicity/Usage Rights:By entering, you warrant and represent that your submission has been created by you as an original work and that all required third-party releases (if any) have been obtained in writing, and you further agree acknowledge and agree that Sponsor (and those acting with its authorization) may copy, reproduce, edit, broadcast and otherwise use your submission in any way in any medium whether now existing or later discovered, worldwide, in perpetuity, including but not limited to posting online.   Except where prohibited, participation in the Contest and/or receipt or use of any prize further constitutes the winner’s consent for use of his/her name, likeness, voice, opinions, statements, biographical information, and/or hometown and state for promotional or advertising purposes in any media, worldwide, now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further review, notification, payment, or consideration (unless prohibited by law).

WINNER SELECTION:All eligible submissions during the Contest Period will be evaluated by a panel of judges using the following criteria to select one (1) winner: Creativity and originality (40%), Representation of the Theme (40%), and Visual Appeal/Quality (20%). Judges' decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest. 

WINNER NOTIFICATION:  Potential winner will be notified by direct message on Instagram on or about July 10, 2015. No liability is assumed for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason.  If a potential winner does not respond within 3 days after the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.  If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Each winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, a Publicity Release (where legal), and an assignment of rights (including copyright) in the winning photo.

GRAND PRIZE:  One (1) grand prize is available: a one (1) year's supply of Natural D-Hist, consisting of one (1) 120 count bottle each month for 12 months (Total ARV $477.60). Prize is non-transferable, and no cash alternative or prize substitution will be allowed, except in Sponsor’s discretion. A substitute of comparable or greater value may be awarded if the prize listed becomes unavailable for any reason.  Winner is responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with acceptance or use of any prize. If winner purchased product from a physician (remember, no purchase is necessary, see "How to Enter" above) and names such physician in his/her winner affidavit, the doctor may be eligible to receive a product credit worth the value of winner's one-year's supply of Natural D-Hist.

Any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, may be disqualified, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. 

Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Contest, in whole or in part, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Contest is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other unintended circumstances have impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Contest as contemplated herein.  If the Contest is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select winner from all eligible, non-suspect entries unaffected by the problem.
