AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES. Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes Entrants’ full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and all decisions of Sponsor.

TO ENTER. Entrant will be entered into the Sweepstakes with one (1) entry when Entrant registers or logs onto the ZipRealty iPhone® app, iPad® app, or AndroidTM app (collectively, “Mobile Apps”) during the Sweepstakes Period. Additionally, Entrant will be entered into the Sweepstakes with five (5) additional entries (with a maximum of twenty (20) entries in the Sweepstakes via this method) each time Entrant uses the “Share” function on the interstitial page of the Mobile App to share the Mobile Apps with another individual during the Sweepstakes Period.

Any false or deceptive entries or acts will render the Entrant ineligible. Any attempted form of entry other than as described in these Official Rules is void. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any Entrant it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation with these Official Rules. Proof of submitting an entry will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Every submission must be manually key stroked and manually entered by the individual participant and repetitive automated electronic submission of entries (including but not limited to entries submitted using any bot, script, macro, or sweepstakes service) are specifically disallowed. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an online Entrant, entries made online will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder for that email address. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person assigned to an email address by an internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain.

PRIZE DRAWING. Five (5) prize winners will be selected at random from all eligible entries received. Drawing will take place on or about February 20, 2013. Winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements of these Official Rules including eligibility requirements. Sponsor’s decision as to the administration of the Sweepstakes and prizes awarded is final. Sponsor will notify the potential winners by telephone or email in accordance with the information provided by the Entrant.

Potential winners must sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Publicity/Liability Release (except where prohibited by law) and a Form W-9 for tax reporting purposes via pre-paid overnight courier within five (5) days of receipt of those documents or potential winner may be disqualified, and the prize may be forfeited.

Where a prize is forfeited, an alternate potential winner will be chosen at random from the remaining eligible entries. Drawings will continue until the prize has been awarded.
