Master Lock(R) Invites Consumers to 'Lock Up Love' and Enter to Win a Trip to Paris

Win a Romantic Getaway to the "City of Love" While Benefitting the American Heart Association

MILWAUKEE, WI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- To raise awareness for American Heart Month, Master Lock is offering consumers the chance to win a trip to Paris, France through their MasterLoveLock.com website. Just in time for Valentine's Day, the Lock Up Love & Getaway Sweepstakes encourages visitors to the site to create, send and have their recipient accept a virtual love lock, and thus, become eligible to enter the sweepstakes while simultaneously benefitting a worthy cause.

In 2012, Master Lock donated more than $10,000 to the American Heart Association and is stepping up to the plate once again this year. In addition to another $10,000 base donation, Master Lock will donate a dollar for each completed and shared love lock on the site through the month of February, up to an additional $5,000. Besides being the month of love, February is also American Heart Month, a time dedicated to bringing awareness to heart health and building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease.

"We're thrilled to continue supporting the American Heart Association, and to offer fans of the brand and consumers a chance to win a trip to the city of love," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing, for Master Lock. "Our hope is that this great prize will raise awareness for heart disease and bring this historic and romantic love lock custom to life digitally throughout the month."

Visitors to MasterLoveLock.com can lock up their love virtually and enter to win the Lock Up Love & Getaway Sweepstakes, which includes flights, hotel accommodations and spending money for two guests. While in Paris, the couple will have the opportunity to witness the love locks tradition in person at the Pont de l'Archevêché. For decades, sweethearts have participated in this romantic custom around the world by affixing padlocks to fences, gates and bridges, and then throwing away the key, to symbolize their everlasting love.

To enter, visitors select a lock and one of seven famous bridges to virtually affix the chosen lock. Next they upload a personal message for their loved one. A customized "love lock invitation" is then sent to the recipient via email. Once the invitation is accepted, the love lock sender will receive confirmation and a link to the sweepstakes entry form. Consumers will be permitted one entry per accepted, customized love lock (limit two entries per valid email address).

Consumers who participate in the sweepstakes will also have the opportunity to win additional prizes, including a $1,000 Visa® gift card; Valentine's Day themed gift packs filled with flower arrangements, luxury candles, chocolates, romantic DVDs, the Master Lock 1509DLOV Love Lock and more. Fans can enter the sweepstakes daily, including weekends, and all entrants will automatically be eligible for the grand prize pack valued at approximately $7,500 to be drawn on or around March 1.

To send a virtual love lock and enter the Lock Up Love & Getaway Sweepstakes, visit www.MasterLoveLock.com or www.Facebook.com/MasterLock, and be sure the recipient accepts the lock via email. For more information, visit the Master Lock Press Room at www.masterlock.com/about_us/press_room.jsp.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
