Holiday Shopping Spree 2012

Zillow® Shopping Spree of a Lifetime Sweepstakes
Official Rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING THE SWEEPSTAKES.

VOID IN NEW YORK, FLORIDA AND ELSEWHERE WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

Please read these Official Rules before entering the Zillow Shopping Spree of a Lifetime Sweepstakes (the "Promotion"). By participating in the Promotion, you agree to be bound by these Official Rules and represent that you satisfy all of the eligibility requirements below.

Eligibility:  The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States or District of Columbia, excluding residents of New York and Florida, who are age 18 or older (or the age of majority in entrant's state of residence) and are a licensed real estate agent/ broker both during the Promotion Period and at the time that the winners are drawn.  If you do not meet any of these requirements or any other eligibility requirements in these Official Rules, you are not eligible to win a prize, and Zillow, Inc. ("Sponsor") reserves the right not to award prizes to you. Employees, directors, officers and contractors of Sponsor and Sponsor's advertising and promotion agencies, and their respective immediate family members (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and/or those living in the same household of each, are not eligible to win. The Promotion is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void in New York, Florida and elsewhere where restricted or prohibited by law.

Promotion Period:  The Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. (all times Pacific Time) on December 5, 2012, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2012 (the "Promotion Period").  All entries must be made during the Promotion Period to be eligible to win a prize.

How to Enter:  Maximum of two (2) entries into the Promotion.

Initial Entry: If you are a Zillow Premier Agent, you will be automatically entered into the Promotion if, during the Promotion Period, you have a Premier Agent Website (an "Agent Website") that is connected to your local MLS and you have secured a personal domain name for your Agent Website (collectively, a "Complete Agent Website"). If you are a Zillow Premier Agent without a Complete Agent Website, you will be automatically entered into the Promotion when you create a Complete Agent Website during the Promotion Period. To create a Complete Agent Website, log into your profile on the Zillow Website and click on the link in your Agent Hub directing you to create an Agent Website. Follow the steps to create your Agent Website, including, but not limited to, the steps to connect your Agent Website to your local MLS and to obtain a personal domain name.  Upon completing these steps to create a Complete Agent Website, you will receive one (1) entry into the Promotion.

Additional Entry: Once you have taken the steps required to create a Complete Agent Website, you may receive one (1) additional entry into the Promotion by: (i) opening the e-mail sent to you by Zillow regarding the Promotion, (ii) clicking on the link in such e-mail offering an additional entry into the Promotion, and (iii) following the steps outlined on the landing page (the "Landing Page") for obtaining an additional entry, including, without limitation, sending a "tweet" that includes the hashtag provided on the Landing Page. If you do not have an account on Twitter, you can sign up for one at www.twitter.com. Upon completing the steps and sending the tweet from the Landing Page, you will receive one (1) entry into the Promotion.

Alternatively, to enter the Promotion without creating an Agent Website, clearly hand-print your full name, Zillow.com user screen name, mailing address, e-mail address associated with Zillow.com account, and daytime phone number on a 3" x 5" card, and mail that card in a hand-addressed envelope to Sponsor at: Shopping Spree of a Lifetime Sweepstakes, Zillow, Inc., 1301 Second Avenue, Floor 31, Seattle, WA 98101, Attn: Jake Miller.  Mail-in entries must be postmarked by December 31, 2012 and received by January 7, 2013 to be eligible.  Two (2) entries per person.  Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.

Entry Limits and Restrictions:  You are limited to a maximum of two (2) entries into the Promotion per entrant.  In the event that you submit more than two (2) entries into the Promotion, all entries into the Promotion may be eliminated and you may be disqualified from winning the prize, in Sponsor's sole discretion.  Any attempted form of participation in this Promotion other than as described herein is void. If it is discovered that an entrant has registered or attempted to register more than once using multiple e-mail addresses, Twitter accounts or multiple identities, that entrant's entry will be declared null and void and any prize that entrant might have been entitled to will not be awarded to that entrant.

All entries and/or materials submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor is not responsible for any lost, late, undeliverable/undelivered, or postage due mail or entries. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify any entries that are inappropriate for any reason.  Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the prize winner or registrant, the winning entry or registration will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address connected with the account on Zillow.com.  "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

Random Drawing: The potential winner will be selected in a random drawing from all eligible entries to be held by January 14, 2013. The potential winner will be notified via the e-mail address connected with the potential winner's account on Zillow.com. Unless prohibited by law, the potential winner may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability release, publicity release, tax forms ("Affidavit"), and any other reasonable documentation provided by Sponsor before being awarded a prize.  In the event that a prize notification is returned as undeliverable, a potential winner does not respond to the notification within seven (7) calendar days, or a potential winner fails to complete, sign and return the Affidavit and any other required documentation within seven (7) calendar days from the date such documentation is sent to the potential winner, then the potential winner may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, forfeit the prize.  In the event that the potential winner forfeits the prize, or is otherwise disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only four (4) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize may, in Sponsor's sole discretion, remain un-awarded.  Prizes are not assignable or transferable, except to a surviving spouse.

Prize:  One (1) winner can select to receive one (1) of the following prizes:
(i)    An Amazon.com® gift card valued at Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000);
OR
(ii)    A check in the amount of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) made payable to the winner.
The approximate retail value ("ARV") of the prize is Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000). Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in its sole discretion. The odds of winning the prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.

TAXES AND OTHER EXPENSES: THE PRIZE WINNER WILL BE ISSUED A FORM 1099 FOR TAX PURPOSES IN THE AMOUNT OF THE ACTUAL RETAIL VALUE OF THE PRIZE AND MUST SUBMIT HIS OR HER SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, AS REQUIRED BY LAW.  ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL TAXES IMPOSED ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIZE ARE SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PRIZE WINNER. IF REQUIRED BY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAW, SPONSOR MAY WITHOLD TAXES IMPOSED ON THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRIZE ON BEHALF OF THE PRIZE WINNER.
