    ReTweets will not accrue entries in this Sweepstakes.

    Your Tweet/post and its included content will hereafter be referred to as your Submission.  Your Submission must be your original work.  If you include the names or likenesses of other individuals beyond yourself in the Submission, you must have their permission to be included and to grant the rights set forth in Section 5. If requested, entrant must be able to provide such permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor.  Your Submission may not be indecent, obscene, hateful, tortious, defamatory, libelous, contain material that violates or infringes another’s rights, disparage Sponsor, Administrator, or any other person or party, or contain material that is unlawful in any way. The Submission must not prominently feature brand names or trademarks other than those owned by Sponsor or promotion partner, which entrant has a limited license to use to incorporate in his/her Submission. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any Submission that it finds unlawful, or in violation of these Official Rules, all in its sole discretion. You automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes for your qualified Submission.  Released Parties (as defined in Section 8, below) are not responsible for lost, late, unreceived, damaged, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed or misdirected Submissions or failure to receive Submissions due to limitation of third-party social network platforms all of which will be void.

    b. Enter online: To enter without posting or Tweeting a Submission, visit http://www.cinemark.com/GrinchSweeps and follow the links and instructions to complete and submit the registration form including your name, birthdate and email address.  O. Boxes are not permitted.  By completing the foregoing, you automatically will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes.

    Limit: You may enter one (1) time during the Promotion Period, regardless of method of entry.  Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Social Account or same email address.  Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than one (1) entry by using multiple/different Social Accounts, email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.  In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the Social Account or email address used to register 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 or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses used to create the Social Account or for the domain associated with the submitted address.  The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

  5. Sponsor’s Use of Submissions: Tweeting/Posting a Submission constitutes entrant’s consent to give Sponsor a royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, create derivative works from, and display such submissions in whole or in part, on a worldwide basis, and to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed, including for promotional or marketing purposes.  If requested, entrant will execute any documentation that may be required for Sponsor or its designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights entrant is granting to use the Submission. 

  6. Grand Prize Drawing: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winner from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around January 3, 2019. If the potential winner entered via a Social Account, he/she will be notified by @cinemark via the Social Account used to enter.  If the potential winner entered online, he/she will be notified via email.  The potential winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to execute and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and, where not prohibited, a Publicity Release ("Declaration") which must be received by Administrator, within seven (7) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize.  If a potential winner of the prize cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the Declaration or provide any other requested information, within the required time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner is disqualified and forfeits the prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  In the event that the potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.
