Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. Sponsor reserves the right to verify the eligibility of winners.
  1. Sponsor/Administrator: The Sponsor is Marriott International, Inc., 10400 Fernwood Road, Bethesda, MD 20817. The Administrator is Don Jagoda Associates, 100 Marcus Drive, Melville, NY 11747.
  1. How to Enter: There is NO PURCHASE NECESSARY to participate. A purchase does not increase your chances of winning. During the Sweepstakes Period, @westin will make a Post (the “Post”) on Instagram. To enter, follow the instructions in the Post to @ mention the runner in your life (the “Nominee”) who you think would love to win a HyperVolt massager to receive one (1) entry (“Entry”) into the random drawing. Please note, you may Nominate yourself and you do not have to include an @ mention. If you do not have an Instagram account, and you would like to create one for free, download the free Instagram app to your mobile device at either the Apple® App Store or the Google® Play store. The person uploading the Entry will be deemed the entrant (the “Entrant”) and if Entrant nominates him/herself, Entrant is also Nominee. Normal phone/Internet access, phone/data/usage charges imposed by your online/phone service will apply. All Entries become property of the Sponsor.

    No information regarding Entries, other than as otherwise set forth in these Official Rules, will be disclosed. Entries must be received by 11:59 pm ET on June 3, 2021 to be included in the random drawing. Limit one (1) Entry per person/Instagram username. Any attempt by any Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void such Entries and that Entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated or computer system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

    Incomplete, corrupted, or untimely entries are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen or misdirected entries; lost, interrupted, or unavailable network, server, or other connections; or miscommunications, computer or software malfunctions, telephone transmission problems, technical failures, garbled transmissions, damage to a user's computer equipment (software or hardware), or other errors or malfunctions of any kind, whether human, mechanical, electronic or otherwise. Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the Instagram account used to enter will be deemed to be the Entrant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider, or other organization (which may include an employer) responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address will be disqualified and ineligible to win. Entrant’s social media profiles must be keeping with Sponsor’s image or he/she may be disqualified.

  2. Selection of Winners: On or about June 7, 2021, three (3) Grand Prize winning Entries will be randomly selected from among all eligible Entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period. Drawing will be conducted by the Administrator, an independent judging organization whose decisions are final and binding on all matters related to the Sweepstakes. The odds of being selected as a Grand Prize Entry depend on the total number of Entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period.
  1. Winner Notification: Potential Entrants/winners will be notified by Instagram direct message and have forty-eight (48) hours to respond to the notification attempt or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winning Entry will be selected and notified. If a potential winning Entrant nominated someone else, they will be asked to provide the contact information of the Nominee depicted in their winning Entry, and an Assignments of Rights so that the Nominee can be awarded the prize. The potential Grand Prize Nominee will then be asked to provide their mailing address to the Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of being notified in order to be confirmed a Grand Prize Nominee and claim their prize.

    If a potential winning Nominee fails to return the required document within the required time period, or the prize notification is returned undeliverable, or in the event that a potential winning Nominee is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate Nominee from among all remaining eligible Entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period, time permitting. All prizes will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible Entries are received throughout the Sweepstakes Period.

    Potential winning Nominees are subject to verification by Sponsor and/or Administrator, whose decisions are final and BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. A Nominee is not a winner of any prize unless and until the Nominee’s eligibility has been verified and the Nominee has been notified that verification is complete.
