Sweepstakes Description: The Tailscale Steam Deck 256GB Sweepstakes described at https://tailscale.com/rsa2023 (the “Sweepstakes") is being sponsored by Tailscale Inc. (“Tailscale”). Tailscale invites eligible individuals (“Entrants”) who attended the RSA Conference (the “Event”) to submit an entry to the Sweepstakes. One winner will be selected in a random drawing for each 10 eligible entries received. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.
Sweepstakes Period: The Sweepstakes entry period begins on Monday, April 24, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. PT and ends Friday, May 5, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. PT (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Tailscale’s clock is the official clock and sole determinant for the purposes of a valid submission in the Sweepstakes.
Eligibility: The Sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of Canada, excluding Quebec, the United States, and the District of Columbia (excluding Puerto Rico) who are 18 years of age or older (or the age of majority in their state or country of residence, whichever is older). The Sweepstakes is not open to any employee of a current Tailscale customer, any employee of a Tailscale competitor, or any agent or employee of Tailscale or its affiliates or marketing firms, or to any immediate family or household member of those individuals.
How to Enter: Visit the URL referenced above during the Sweepstakes period and follow the instructions for Sweepstakes entry — entries submitted through completion of the Instructions must be received by Tailscale during the Sweepstakes Period.
For an entrant to be entered into the Sweepstakes, the Entrant must complete all directions outlined. Entrants understand that submitting an entry does not mean they will win the Sweepstakes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. All entries submitted become the property of Tailscale and will not be returned. All Entrants are permitted to submit one entry into the Sweepstakes. Entries will not be accepted if no valid email address is provided, if the supplied email address is not current or if the first and last name are not provided. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the Entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to the Entrant. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. The “authorized account holder” is 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 associated with the submitted email address.
Drawing; Odds: Notification: On Monday, May 8, 2023, at the ratio of 1 winner per every 10 Entrants (each a “Prize Winner”), rounded to the lowest interval of 10 Entrants (i.e. 53 Entrants will produce 5 Prize Winners). Prize Winners will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. The random drawing will be conducted and the Prize Winners will be announced via email by June 1, 2023. All Entrants are solely responsible for ensuring they include (along with their entry) valid and current contact information. Returned or undeliverable notifications may result in forfeiture of the prize.

Where not prohibited by law, the Prize Winners may be required to execute and return to Tailscale a notarized affidavit of eligibility (the “Affidavit”), a liability release, and a publicity release relating to the prize within 7 business days of attempted prize notification in order to claim the prize, or the prize may be forfeited. All forfeited prizes may be awarded to an alternate winner selected in a random drawing from among the remaining Entrants. The Affidavit must be in the form Tailscale provided.
