NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN THE SWEEPSTAKES. Purchase will not increase your chances to win. Participation constitutes entrant's full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of Invoice Cloud, Inc.

When you do one of these two things for the first time between 9/1/19 and 11/30/19, you’ll be entered in the sweepstakes. The maximum number of entries per account is two. The Invoice Cloud service website's database clock will be the official time keeper for the Sweepstakes. Internet entry must be made by the entrant, only at the St. Cloud Utilities payment portal or through St. Cloud Customer Service. * If you are already enrolled in either AutoPay or Paperless e-billing, you will also be included in the sweepstakes drawing.

If you would like to enter the sweepstakes other than through enrolling by Signing up for AutoPay or Signing up to Go Paperless on the St. Cloud Utilities payment portal or through St. Cloud Customer Service, you may do so by sending a 3x5 card with the hand printed words: St. Cloud Utilities Sweepstakes, your name, address, telephone number, and the bill account number for which you are entering. Send the card to: Invoice Cloud, 30 Braintree Hill Office Park, Suite 303, Braintree, MA, 02184. Entries must be postmarked by 11/30/19. Entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Mechanically reproduced entries will not be accepted. Entries using macro, robotic, script or other forms of automatic entry will be disqualified. Proof of submission does not constitute proof of entry. Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for: lost, late, incomplete, illegible, incorrect, delayed, garbled, undelivered, or misdirected entries. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any person or e-mail address that submits more than maximum allowed entries.

The Sponsor and St. Cloud Utilities are not responsible for electronic transmission errors resulting in omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operations or transmission, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to or alterations of entry materials, or for technical, network, telephone equipment, electronic, computer, hardware or software malfunctions or limitations of any kind, or inaccurate transmissions of or failure to receive entry information by the Sponsor or presenter on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or at any Web site or any combination thereof. If for any reason the Internet portion of the program is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Sweepstakes, the Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes.

Winner Selection/Odds: The prize winner will be selected by an independent agent in a random drawing on or about 12/6/19 from among all eligible entries received. The drawing will be conducted by the Sponsor, whose decisions are final in all matters relating to the Sweepstakes. The actual odds of winning will depend upon the total number of actual eligible entries received during the sweepstakes period.

Prize: One sweepstakes prize will be awarded during the sweepstakes period, an iPad Mini. The approximate retail value (ARV) of the iPad Mini is $399.00. The prize is non-transferable and no substitutions are allowed, except by the sponsor which reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal

value. If the actual value of any prize turns out to be less than the stated ARV, the difference will not be

awarded in cash. The winning prize is provided “AS-IS” and the sponsor provides no warranty. To the

extent that the third-party manufacturer of the product provides any warranty with the prize, sponsor shall

pass such warranty through to the winner. Apple Inc. is in no way affiliated with this promotion or with the

sponsor. Neither the use of Apple products as prizes nor the use of Apple's trademarks in connection with

this promotion are intended to create a sense of endorsement or sponsorship by, or other false

association with, Apple or Apple products. In the event an advertised prize is not available, the Sponsor

may substitute a prize of equal or greater value. Taxes on prize are the sole responsibility of the winners.

Prize Notification: The winner will be notified by email, phone or mail based upon available contact

information. The winner has 14 days to claim the prize after notification. The prize will be delivered

between two to six weeks after the prize is claimed. If the Sponsor is not able to contact a prize winner for

any reason, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. Winners are solely responsible

for applicable taxes. By accepting a prize, the winner consents to the use of their name and likeness for

publicity purposes without further compensation, unless otherwise prohibited by law. In the event of a

dispute as to the identity of a winner, the entry will be considered to be made by the authorized account

holder. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person identified on the St. Cloud Utilities bill.

envelope by 12/20/19 to: Invoice Cloud, Inc., 30 Braintree Hill Office Park, Suite 303, Braintree, MA
