General Conditions: The Sweepstake is subject to these Official Rules and all federal, state, and local laws and regulations (collectively, “Rules and Laws”). By entering this Sweepstake, entrants agree to waive any right to claim any ambiguity or error in the Official Rules of the Sweepstake, or the Sweepstake itself, and agree to be bound by these Official Rules and by all decisions of the Sponsor and/or the Sweepstake Administrator, which decisions are binding and final in all respects. By accepting a prize, winners attest to the authenticity of their winning Sweepstake Entry. Where permitted by law, participation and acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for Sweepstake Entities to use such winner’s first name, last initial, address (city and state), photo, likeness, biographical information, statement, and voice for advertising/publicity purposes worldwide and in all forms of media (including posting on Sponsor websites), in perpetuity, without further notice to or compensation in connection with said Sweepstake, and Sponsor has the right to modify, edit, adapt, electronically alter, use, assign, and/or dispose of such Sweepstake Entries as it sees fit and without any notice or compensation to entrant or any third parties. Any person attempting to defraud or tamper with the Sweepstake will be subject to prosecution and is thereby ineligible. If, for any reason, the Sweepstake is not capable of running as originally planned, Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend, or modify the Sweepstake or any portion(s) thereof and conduct the Sweepstake drawing(s) from among all salvageable eligible Sweepstake Entries received as of the termination date, if any, in the sole discretion of Sponsor. In case of a dispute over the identity of an entrant who submitted a winning Sweepstake Entry, the authorized account holder of Entry Platform account associated with that Sweepstake Entry will be deemed the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is deemed the natural person who is assigned to an Entry Platform account by the Entry Platform. Said owner must comply with these Official Rules, be the person who completed the act of entering, and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, may be required to provide proof of ownership of the Entry Platform account. You will not post, advertise, or otherwise promote this Sweepstake on any online website, page, or forum dedicated primarily to the exchange of information about sweepstakes or contests or participate in any commercial contest/promotion subscription notification and/or entering services – any such entries will void your Sweepstake Entries and you may be disqualified.

The failure of Sponsor to comply with any provision of these Official Rules due to an act of God, hurricane, war, fire, riot, earthquake, terrorism, act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities outside of the control of Sponsor (excepting compliance with applicable codes and regulations) or other force majeure event will not be considered a breach of these Official Rules.
