5. How to Enter: During the Contest Period, download or use the Zepp Baseball – Softball mobile app (“App”) and follow the links and instructions to register in the NB Hit Club to compete in the Contest. To compete in the Contest, you must provide all required information, including a valid email address, and accept the Contest Official Rules and Sponsor’s privacy policy.  You must also use the Zepp Sensor by attaching it to the knob of any baseball or softball bat and connecting the Sensor to the App via Bluetooth® wireless technology to capture your swing data.

During each Monthly Entry Period, there will be three (3) separate challenges available in the NB Hit Club (“Monthly Challenges”).  You may compete in one, two or three Monthly Challenges each Monthly Entry Period.   Upon completing a Monthly Challenge, you will receive a score reflecting your performance on that Challenge.  You may play a Monthly Challenge as many times as you would like during each Monthly Entry Period to improve your score.

Data rates may apply for any activity using the App, including Monthly Challenges in the NB Hit Club, on your wireless device.  Please consult your wireless-service provider regarding its pricing plans.

Monthly Challenge plays generated by script, macro or other automated means and/or Monthly Challenge game plays by third parties using your identity are void and will not be counted towards your score for a Monthly Challenge Contest.  Any attempt by any entrant to participate by using multiple/different identities, registrations and/or logins, or any other similar methods, will void that entrant's participation in the Contest. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address.  Normal Internet, phone and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any entry or score, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant and must comply with these Official Rules. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each entrant may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder. Registrations specifying an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address will be disqualified and the relevant entrant will be ineligible to win. Released Parties (as defined in Section 9 below) are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible, garbled, delayed, misdirected or unrecorded entries, all of which will be void.

6. Winner Determination: Winners will be determined according to the process set forth below:

Grand Prize:  After the conclusion of each Monthly Entry Period, the three (3) entrants with the top performance in each Monthly Challenge, based upon their leaderboard scores, will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winners.  In the event of a tie for the top (3) performances in a Monthly Challenge, all tied entrants will deemed the potential Grand Prize winners.

Each potential winner will be required to provide his/her mailing address, birth date and any other requested information, which must be received by Sponsor within three (3) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize.

If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to provide any requested information within the required time period, does not comply with these Official Rules, or if prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits the prize.  If a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the prize may be awarded to a runner-up, if any, in Sponsor’s sole discretion.
