You are not eligible to participate or receive a prize in this Sweepstakes if such participation or prize receipt would violate any applicable law, rule or regulation.
TO ENTER: There are two methods to earn entries into the Sweepstakes.
Entry By Making Referrals (Quest and Quest 2 Owners Only): During the Sweepstakes Period, Oculus Quest and Quest 2 owners who meet the eligibility requirements can earn one (1) entry into the applicable Weekly Drawing, except Weekly Entry Period 4, and one (1) entry into the grand prize drawing if all of the following steps are completed:
Eligible entrant must log in to their Oculus profile at https://auth.oculus.com/login/, navigate to the referrals page (oculus.com/quest-2-referrals/) (“Website”), follow the steps to send a referral link (“Referral Link”);
The Referral Link must be accepted. A referral is “accepted” when the recipient of the Referral Link clicks the link and then clicks “accept referral” on the referral landing page. The referral must be accepted before the end of the Sweepstakes Period. No purchase of any Oculus products or services is necessary to accept a referral.
Entrant must have their Quest or Quest 2 device activated and linked to their Facebook account to be able to send a Referral Link. Entrants can generate a single Referral Link that can be shared without restriction.
Referral Links may only be accepted once per person and cannot be accepted by the individual sending/sharing the Referral Link. A person who has accepted a Referral Link during the past ninety (90) days or who has previously accepted a Referral Link and activated a Quest or Quest 2 device associated with the Referral Link is not eligible to accept a Referral Link in this Sweepstakes. Individuals must have a Facebook account to accept a referral and referrals cannot be accepted by users who already have a Quest 2 device activated and linked to their Facebook account.
The applicable Weekly Drawing Period will be the Weekly Drawing Period currently in effect when the intended recipient of the Referral Link accepts the referral. Referral Links must be generated and sent during the Sweepstakes Period to earn entries into the Sweepstakes.
Entry Without Making Referrals: During the Sweepstakes Period, eligible entrants can enter without owning a Quest or Quest 2 device by visiting the Sweepstakes entry form at https://forms.gle/zg18WN8QYMr3mAZ38 (“Entry Form”) and following the instructions to complete and submit the Entry Form with all required information, including Oculus username (which can be found in the Oculus user interface under “Profile”). Entrants will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Weekly Drawing, except Weekly Entry Period 4, and one (1) entry into the grand prize drawing for each Entry Form submission. The applicable Weekly Drawing Period for which an entry will be received will be the Weekly Drawing Period currently in effect when the Entry Form is submitted.
There is a limit of twenty (20) total entries per calendar month per person/Oculus profile, regardless of method of entry. Total entry limit for the entire Sweepstakes Period is forty (40) entries per person/Oculus profile for the entire Sweepstakes Period, regardless of method of entry
Additional Referral Link Requirements: Every time you post or send your Referral Link, you must tell people that you earn a Sweepstakes entry if they accept your referral. Telling people that you earn a Sweepstakes entry if they accept the referral is a legal requirement. Failure to comply may result in your entries being void and/or your disqualification from the Sweepstakes, and may be a violation of laws enforced by the Federal Trade Commission. You can use the default language provided to share your Referral Link, but at least use: "Accept my referral and I have a chance to win Oculus prizes.” You may not refer yourself or create multiple, fictitious or fake accounts to attempt to earn additional entries into the Sweepstakes.
You are the actual sender of any emails you may send in connection with this Sweepstakes and you must comply with applicable law. Referral Links must be created and distributed in a personal manner that is appropriate and customary for communications with friends, colleagues and family members. By emailing any email address as part of the Sweepstakes, you represent that you have the appropriate permission and consent. Bulk email distribution, distribution to strangers, or any other use of the services described herein in a manner outside the intent of the Sweepstakes is expressly prohibited and may be grounds for immediate disqualification and further legal action. Entrants who do not comply with the law, including anti-spam laws, are obligated to indemnify the Released Parties against any liabilities, costs and expenses they incur as a result of such spam.
For purposes of the Sweepstakes, an entry is received only when the applicable website’s servers record the acceptance of the Referral Link or submission of the Entry Form. Entries must be submitted and received by Sponsor during the Sweepstakes Period, through the Website or Entry Form, and in strict accordance with the instructions and restrictions in these Official Rules and any other communications from Sponsor.
Proof of submitting an entry (such as, without limitation, a printed, saved or copied automated receipt confirming submission or a “thanks for entering” screen or message) does not constitute proof of actual receiving of an entry for purposes of the Sweepstakes. Entries may not be acknowledged. The Sponsor’s clock will be the official timekeeper for entry into the Sweepstakes. Those who do not provide the required responses or entry information in their Entry Form or abide by these Official Rules and other instructions of Sponsor and its representatives may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be disqualified and the associated entry void. Attempts made by a participant to submit entries in excess of any limit or otherwise in violation of these Official Rules by using multiple accounts or false contact information or otherwise may be disqualified. Purported entries that are forged, altered, incomplete, lost, late, misdirected, mutilated, illegitimate, unintelligible, garbled, or generated by a macro, bot, script or other automated means will not be accepted and will be void. Entries or participation made on a participant’s behalf by any other individual (except as otherwise set out herein), made by any entity or group, or originating at any website or online service other than the Website or Entry Form, including, without limitation, through commercial promotion subscription notification or entering services, will be declared invalid and disqualified for the Sweepstakes. As a condition of entering the Sweepstakes, without limiting any other provision in these Official Rules, each entrant gives consent for Sponsor and its agents to obtain and deliver his or her name, address, and other information and content to third parties for the purpose of administering this Sweepstakes and complying with applicable laws, regulations, and rules.
WINNER SELECTION/NOTIFICATION: For Weekly Drawing Periods 1-3, at the conclusion of each Weekly Drawing Period, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) first prize and four (4) runner-up prize winners from among all entries received for that Weekly Drawing. Non-winning entries will roll forward to subsequent Weekly Drawings.
At the conclusion of the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) grand prize winner from among all eligible entries received for the grand prize drawing.
All drawings will be held on or about two (2) business days after the end of the applicable entry period deadline. Within approximately two (2) business days after the selection of the potential winner(s), Sponsor or its designee will attempt to notify the potential winner(s) that they may have won a prize by email associated with the potential winner’s Oculus profile or using other contact information provided for entry in Sponsor’s sole discretion. In addition, a potential winner’s name and his or her city and state or other general information may be included in a publicly available winners’ list. Prize or prize elements will only be mailed, where applicable, to winner’s address in the Territory. If any prize, prize notification, or Sweepstakes-related communication is rejected, faulty, or undeliverable; if a potential winner does not respond according to the notification or Sponsor’s instructions; or if a winner or potential winner fails to comply with these Official Rules, the prize may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting) based on the original method of winner selection or other method that is fair in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor is not obligated to pursue more than three (3) alternate winners for any prize for any reason, in which case such prize may go unawarded. Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures and applicable deadlines for responding in connection with the selection of any alternate potential winner, if any. If a prize is legitimately claimed, it will be awarded. Upon prize forfeiture or inability to use a prize or portion thereof, no compensation will be given and Sponsor will have no responsibility or liability to that participant. To claim a prize, winner must follow the directions in his or her notification. Winners may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, be required to complete, sign, notarize (if applicable), and return, without alteration and in the form presented by Sponsor or its representative, an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by applicable law) and tax forms (as applicable) (collectively, the “Winner Documents”) according to Sponsor or its representaive’s instructions within ten (10) business days from when Sponsor or Sponsor representative sends the Winner Documents or other time frame as specified by Sponsor or its representative. Failure to comply with these requirements, Sponsor’s or its representative’s instructions, or these Official Rules may, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, result in disqualification from the Sweepstakes and forfeiture of any prize potentially won. The Winner Documents, if required, are each subject to verification by Sponsor or its representative and may require the participant to provide his or her Social Security Number and/or a copy of government-issued identification card or number therefrom. Federal IRS 1099-MISC forms may be issued by Sponsor’s representative as appropriate in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Decisions of the Sponsor are final on all matters relating to the Sweepstakes, including interpretation of these Official Rules, determining the winners, and awarding of the prizes. Grand prize winner understands that they will provide Sponsor’s representative, Enteractive Solutions Group, Inc., with applicable tax ID, tax forms, documents, or certifications as may be required by applicable law for the representative to satisfy any tax information reporting obligations with respect to receipt of the grand prize.
