All entries, regardless of method, carry an equal chance of winning. (a) Online Survey Entries – During a Weekly Sweepstakes Period, you may visit the webpage located at http://survey.medallia.com/sephora/usa and complete the online survey. Upon completion of the survey you will be given the option to enter the Weekly Sweepstakes by completing an online entry form. To complete the online entry form, provide all required information (your full name, address, daytime telephone number, and a valid e-mail address), and submit your entry according to the directions on the screen. By completing and submitting the form as described, you will receive (1) entry into the Weekly Sweepstakes that corresponds to the Weekly Sweepstakes Period in which your entry was received (see Paragraph 2 above). (b) Online Entry (Without Survey) – During a Weekly Sweepstakes Period, you may also enter online without completing a survey by visiting the webpage located at http://survey.medallia.com/sephorasws?unit=111. Complete your online entry form by providing all required information (your full name, address, daytime telephone number, and a valid e-mail address) and submit your entry according to the directions on the screen.

For all online entries (survey and non-survey): Entries must be received by Medallia by the end of the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period in order to be entered into the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes (see Paragraph 2). Timing of entry receipt will be determined by Medallia’s time clock. Each entry is only eligible for the Weekly Sweepstakes corresponding to the Weekly Sweepstakes Period in which the entry was received and will not be entered into subsequent Weekly Sweepstakes, if any. No hand or e-mail deliveries of entries will be accepted. Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for late, lost, delayed, stolen, incomplete, falsified, void, corrupted, garbled, misdirected, or otherwise unintelligible entries or for any problems, bugs or malfunctions you may encounter when submitting your entry. Incomplete, garbled, corrupted or otherwise illegible entries are void and will not be accepted. Sweepstakes Entities reserve the right to disqualify incomplete entries. Only one (1) entrant’s name may appear on an entry. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the person submitting an entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address at the time of entry and such individual must comply with these official rules. “Authorized account holder” is the natural person who is assigned the e-mail address by the internet service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the e-mail in question. Online entries must be made by the original, manual keystrokes of the individual entrant. Entries generated by a script, computer programs, macro, or other automated means will be subject to disqualification. Proof of sending an entry is not proof of receipt by Sweepstakes Entities. All entries submitted become the sole property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.
- Selection of Winners: Each eligible entry received during a Weekly Sweepstakes Period will be entered into a random drawing for the prize available for that Weekly Sweepstakes (see Paragraphs 2 and 6). The random drawings for each Weekly Sweepstakes will be conducted on a monthly basis at a Sweepstakes Administrator’s office on the 15th day of the month (or if that day falls on a weekend or holiday, the next following business day) in the month following the end of the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period (each, a “Drawing Date”). For example, the Drawing Date for all Weekly Sweepstakes Periods that end in the month of March 2019 will be held on April 15, 2021. On each of the Drawing Dates, one (1) entrant from each Weekly Sweepstakes will be selected at random by a representative of a Sweepstakes Administrator from all eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period. Attempts may be made to contact selected entrants by phone and/or e-mail. All selected entrants may be required to respond (as directed) to the phone and/or e-mail notification within five (5) business days of the first attempt made to contact him/her. Before being confirmed as a prize winner, selected entrant may be required to (a) execute and return a liability / publicity release (“Release”) within the time specified therein confirming compliance with the Official Rules, accepting the prize as awarded, releasing the Sweepstakes Entities from any liability in connection with these Sweepstakes and, except where prohibited by law, allowing Sponsor to use his/her name, city and state of residence, portrait, image, picture, voice, likeness and comments as set out in Paragraph 8. If a selected entrant: (i) cannot be reached within the time prescribed; (ii) fails to complete and return Release (if required) within the time specified; (iii) cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason (including if the prize or prize notification is returned as nondeliverable); or (iv) is otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules, he/she will be disqualified, he/she will not receive any prize and an alternate entrant will be randomly selected in accordance with the Official Rules from among the remaining eligible entries received from that Weekly Sweepstakes during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes Period until such time as a winner is confirmed for that prize. Winning a prior Weekly Sweepstakes does not affect the eligibility of an entrant for any future Weekly Sweepstakes (if any). The odds of winning a prize for a given Weekly Sweepstakes depend upon the total number of eligible entries received for that Weekly Sweepstakes during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes
- Prizes: For each Weekly Sweepstakes, the prize is a $250 Sephora gift card. The prize is non-transferable, cannot be combined with any other special offer or promotion and must be accepted as awarded.

Redemption of gift card prize is subject to the terms and conditions thereof. Prize may not be exchanged for cash value or substituted, except that Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute with either the cash value of the prize, or a prize or prizes of equal or greater value.

Prizes will be delivered to confirmed winners to a valid U.S. address within 3 weeks of a winner’s confirmation (see Paragraph 5).
