HOBO is not responsible for (1) any human or mechanical errors, omissions, interruptions, defects, computer, online, telephone, cable, satellite, technical or mechanical malfunctions, viruses, worms, or delays of any kind that occur in the transmission, communication, or processing of entries, or inaccurate transcription of entry information, (2) undelivered, late, lost, stolen, damaged, garbled, mutilated, illegible, incomplete, postage-due, or misdirected entries, e-mail, forms or Sweepstakes-related correspondence or materials; (3) errors, typos, or misprints in these Official Rules, in any Sweepstakes-related advertisements, or other materials; (4) failures of electronic equipment, computer hardware or software, lost or unavailable network connections, or failed, incorrect, incomplete, inaccurate, garbled, or delayed electronic communications, or entries otherwise not in compliance with these Official Rules, or (5) any condition caused by events beyond the control of HOBO that may cause the promotion to be disrupted or corrupted.

TEXT-MESSAGING MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE THROUGH ALL WIRELESS CARRIERS.

Check with your carrier or device owners' manual for specific text-messaging instructions. Text-messaging may not be available through all wireless carriers. For texting entries, one entry per phone will be permitted, unless otherwise specified. Decisions of HOBO are final. Such decisions may include, but are not limited to, whether an entry adheres to the entry criteria, the time of entry receipt by HOBO, the order in which text message entries are received, the eligibility of the entrant, and, in the event entry requires the submission of an answer or response, whether that answer or response is correct. By participating in the contest, entrants agree that the HOBO may contact them, via phone or text message, at the telephone number from which the text message entry was received no more than 4 times per month. Any and all fees arising out of the transmission of a text message shall be the sole responsibility of the entrant. By participating in a sweepstakes in which text message-based entry is permitted, entrants acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through third party providers; HOBO does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry. HOBO will at all times consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the entrant attempted to send the entry and any technical problems or other complications that may have delayed its delivery. HOBO, through its third party text messaging administrators, will store all messages received on its system. HOBO is not responsible for service outages, message failures, transmission delays or any other factor affecting the availability or performance of the text messaging service. HOBO further reserves the right to cancel, terminate or modify the contest if, in the sole discretion of HOBO, it is impossible or impractical to complete the contest as planned for any reason, including, but not limited to, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention or technical failures of any sort.
HOW TO WIN: On or about October 30, 2017, HOBO will select the proposed winners of two prizes (awarded separately), as described below, by random draw from among all eligible entries received. Proposed winners will be notified by text and / or email on or about November 1, 2017. HOBO will attempt to reach each proposed winner three (3) times within the one (1) week period after the promotion period closes and winner must respond within one (1) week after the final notification to remain eligible to win a prize. HOBO’s decisions, including the Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of any prize, are final. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received throughout the promotion period. All prizes will be awarded. If a proposed winner cannot be contacted by email or is ineligible or disqualified, HOBO will select a new proposed winner by random draw from among all remaining eligible entries. Entrants hereby consent to the posting by HOBO of a winner’s first name and last initial and corresponding prize on the HOBOonline.com website.
HOBO, in its discretion, reserves the right to substitute the stated prize or portion thereof with another prize or portion thereof of equal or greater value for any reasons, including, without limitation, prize unavailability, and reserves the right to revise these Official Rules. No more than the stated prizes will be awarded. HOBO will not replace a lost, mutilated, or stolen prize or any prize that is undeliverable or does not reach a winner because of an incorrect or changed address or other contact information. If a winner does not accept or use the entire prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the prize will be forfeited and HOBO will have no further obligation with respect to that prize or portion of the prize.
