Exact start date, time and duration of each Co-Stream Period, and the influencers participating in (and the Twitch channels broadcasting) each Co-Stream Period is subject to change, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion. If any participating influencer is unable to participate during a Co-Stream Period (due to illness or any other reason), Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, (i) reschedule the applicable Co-Stream Period during the Sweepstakes Period, (ii) replace such influencer with another influencer or (iii) have such influencer’s co-stream partner award the two (2) prizes available for the applicable Co-Stream Period.

ELIGIBILITY: This Sweepstakes is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 13 years of age as of date of entry. Eligible minors must obtain their parents or legal guardian’s permission prior to participating in this Sweepstakes. The parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, trustees, distributors, advertising and promotion agencies, employees and agents of Ader, Inc. (“Sponsor”), The Hershey Company, and the immediate families (parent, child, spouse or sibling and their respective spouses regardless of where they reside) and those living in the same households, whether or not related, of any of the above are not eligible to enter or win. If you have received a prize from Sponsor within the past six (6) months in connection with another Sponsor promotion, you are not eligible to participate in this Sweepstakes or receive a prize. All federal, state and local rules and regulations apply. Void where prohibited.

HOW TO ENTER: During a Co-Stream Period, log in to your Twitch account and navigate to the Twitch channel of one (1) of the two (2) influencers associated with the applicable Co-Stream Period. Within the first twenty (20) minutes of the Co-Stream Period, the influencer will invite you to post “!Hershey’s” in the chat section of the stream to receive one (1) entry in the random drawing for the Co-Stream Period (each, an “Entry”). Once the influencer presents the invite, you will have between approximately two (2) hours and two and one half (2.50) hours to post your comment with the word “!Hershey’s” to enter (after which time you will no longer be able to participate in the Sweepstakes for the applicable Co-Stream Period). Any/all other content included in your chat comment will not increase or decrease your chances of winning a prize.

A Twitch account is required to enter. A Twitch account can be obtained free of charge at www.Twitch.com. Participation in the Sweepstakes requires acceptance of the Twitch terms of use and privacy policy.

Please Note: Any/all chat comments involving any obscene, unsavory, dangerous or potentially harmful activities are strongly discouraged and will not be considered.

All Entries must be received by the dates and times specified in the chart above to be considered for the applicable Co-Stream Period drawing. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means and Entries by any means which subvert the entry process are void. Limit one (1) Entry per person using only one (1) Twitch account per Co-Stream Period. Entries received from any person or Twitch account in excess of the limitation stated above will be void. You may only use one (1) Twitch account to enter the Sweepstakes. Standard data rates may apply if you elect to enter the Sweepstakes using your mobile device. Please refer to the terms of your wireless service agreement for rates and details. Check your mobile device capabilities for specific usage instructions.

By submitting an Entry, entrant hereby grants permission for the entry (and the name of the entrant) to be posted on Sponsor social channels or other Sponsor websites. Entrant agrees that Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for any unauthorized use of entries by third parties. Released Parties do not guarantee the posting of any entry and may remove any posted entry at any time.

RANDOM DRAWINGS: For each Co-Stream Period, one (1) potential winner for each influencer’s co-stream will be selected in a random drawing held approximately two (2) hours to two and one half (2.5) hours after the influencer invites entrants to post “!Hershey’s” in the chat (for a total of sixteen (16) potential Co-Stream Period winners throughout the Sweepstakes) from among all eligible entries received for each influencer co-stream. Odds of winning a Co-Stream Period prize will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received for each influencer co-stream. Non-winning entries from one influencer co-stream drawing will not carry over to subsequent influencer co-stream drawings, if any. One (1) potential Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing on or about December 23, 2018 from among all confirmed and verified Co-Stream Period prize winners. Odds of winning the Grand Prize will depend on the number of confirmed and verified Co-Stream Period prize winners. Random drawings will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.
