service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain
associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the
authorized account holder.
Bonus Sweepstakes Entries: You may earn additional Sweepstakes entries as described below.
a. Email Tell A Friend: After you enter the Sweepstakes, you will be invited to submit the names
and email addresses of up to three (3) friends who must be eligible to enter the Sweepstakes.

the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final
and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select one (1) potential
