NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE DOES NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.



1. HERE’S HOW TO ENTER: The Ferrero Rocher Virtual Gift Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) shall begin at 12:00:00am Eastern Time (“ET”) on 11/22/12 and end at 11:59:59pm (ET) on 1/5/13 (the “Promotion Period”). During the Promotion Period, those who are eligible (each an “Entrant”) may visit the Sweepstakes application (the “Application”), accessible through the Application link on the Ferrero Rocher USA page on Facebook.com (https://www.facebook.com/ferrerorocherusa) (“the Page”), and follow the on-screen instructions to send a free virtual giftbox of Ferrero Rocher® chocolates (the “Virtual Gift”) to Entrant’s “friends” on Facebook (“Facebook Friends”) and register for the Sweepstakes. If you are not an existing member of Facebook.com, you will be required to follow the directions to create a free account on Facebook.com and you will then be able to access the Page. Entrant will be required to “like” Ferrero Rocher USA (if he/she does not already “like” Ferrero Rocher USA) prior to sending a Virtual Gift and registering for the Sweepstakes. For clarity, “liking” Ferrero Rocher USA does not, by itself, constitute entry into the Sweepstakes. The Virtual Gift has no monetary value. Entrant will receive one (1) entry into the corresponding Weekly Drawing (defined in Section 3 below) for each unique Facebook Friend to whom Entrant sends a Virtual Gift, up to a maximum of ten (10) entries per Day, subject to the restrictions set forth herein. In the event that Entrant sends more than one (1) Virtual Gift to the same Facebook Friend on the same Day, he/she may receive an entry for the first Virtual Gift sent to that Facebook Friend, while all other entries for Virtual Gifts sent to the same Facebook Friend on the same Day will be disqualified. All entries over the maximum of ten (10) entries permitted per Day shall be disqualified. To clarify, Entrant may receive a total of ten (10) entries per day using any of the following methods: (a) sending one (1) Virtual Gift to ten (10) different Facebook Friends; (b) sending ten (10) separate and unique Virtual Gifts to a different Facebook Friend; or (c) through using any combination of Virtual Gifts and recipients where the total number of Virtual Gifts/Facebook Friends meets the ten (10) entry per Day threshold (e.g., solely for example purposes, two (2) separate and unique Virtual Gifts sent to five (5) different Facebook Friends). Entrant may only send Virtual Gift(s) to a maximum of one hundred (100) Facebook Friends per Day (“Daily Virtual Gift Threshold”); upon reaching the Daily Virtual Gift Threshold, Entrant will not be able to send any more Virtual Gifts for the remainder of that Day. Entries are only valid for the particular Weekly Drawing and do not carry over to subsequent Weekly Drawings. Entries must be received by 11:59:59pm (ET) each Saturday to be eligiblefor that Week’s Weekly Drawing. Web host’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes. A “Week” is defined as beginning 12:00:00am (ET) on Sunday and ending 11:59:59pm (ET) on Saturday during each Week of the Promotion Period, except for the first Week of the Promotion Period which begins 12:00:00am (ET) on Thursday 11/22/12 and ends 11:59:59pm (ET) on Saturday 11/24/12.
