  2. How To Enter: The Sweepstakes begins at 12:01 AM ET on Jan 1, 2019 and ends at 11:59 PM ET on December 31, 2019 (the "Entry Period"). For the purposes of this Sweepstakes, a "Sweepstakes Day" begins at 12:00:01 AM Eastern Time and ends at 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time. You may enter the Sweepstakes ONCE per Sweepstakes Day during the Entry Period for a maximum of ten (10) entries total per participant), using either of the following two ways:
    1. Online Entry: To enter online, complete the official entry form, which is located at http://www.icelandicfourmula.com/contest.html. You will be asked to provide your first and last name, address, telephone number, and email address. You may also be asked to answer optional questions; however, they need not be answered in order to be eligible for the Sweepstakes. All online entries must be received by 11:59 PM ET on the last day of the Entry Period.

      For purposes of these Official Rules, "receipt" of an Online Entry occurs when Icelandic Fourmula's servers record the entry information upon clicking the "Submit Entry" button. Any automated computer receipt (such as one confirming delivery of email) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by icelandicfourmula.com of an Online Entry for purposes of these Official Rules. In the event of a dispute about the identity of an online entrant, each Online Entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet Access Provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If the winning entry is an Online Entry, the potential winner may be required to provide Sponsors and Administrators with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry.
