Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address or Device. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of plays by using multiple/different email addresses, Devices, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant’s plays and that entrant may be disqualified.
Plays and their associated entrants sharing the same email address, phone number, or names may be
disqualified if found to be done in an attempt to circumvent the rule on each natural person being allowed
only one (1) play per calendar day. If any entry and its associated entrant contains an email address,
phone number, or name which is listed as a current associate in either Administrator’s system or that of
any of Sponsor’s brands (Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie kids, Hollister Co.), that play/entrant may be
disqualified if found in violation of the rule on employees of Administrator and/or Sponsor as well as the
immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such
employee being ineligible for participation in the Instant Win Game. Use of any automated system to
participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late,
incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected registrations, which will be disqualified. In the event of a
dispute as to any registration or play, the authorized account holder of the email address or the text
messaging capable device used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account
holder” of an email address, 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. The “authorized account holder” of a text messaging
capable device is the natural person in whose name the device has been issued and the services are
billed. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.

event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prizes at random from among the eligible plays received
up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any
individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Instant Win Game or to be
acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or
disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the
Instant Win Game may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made,

Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

12. DISPUTES RESOLUTION
You agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise relating in any way to or arising out of the Instant Win Game, the Official Rules, or the Administrator’s or Sponsor’s Text Terms and Conditions will be resolved in accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution section. Please read this section carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against each other are resolved.
Except where prohibited, entrant, or entrant’s parent/guardian if entrant is under the age of majority in
their jurisdiction agrees that whenever you have a disagreement with Administrator or Sponsor arising out
of, connected to, or in any way related to the Instant Win Game, the Official Rules, or the Administrator’s
or Sponsor’s Text Terms and Conditions, you will send a written notice to the Administrator (“Demand”).
You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that
may have arisen before you accepted these Official Rules or the Administrator’s or Sponsor’s Text Terms
and Conditions. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal
Department, HelloWorld, Inc., One ePrize Drive, Pleasant Ridge, Michigan 48069. You agree that you
will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until ten (10) business
days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your
satisfaction within ten (10) business days after it is received, and you intend on taking legal action, you
agree that you will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”).
This arbitration provision limits the ability of you, Administrator, and Sponsor to litigate claims in court and
you, Administrator, and Sponsor each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or
federal judge. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Administrator or Sponsor in any state or
federal court. You agree that if you do sue in state or federal court, and Administrator or Sponsor brings
a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by Administrator and
Sponsor in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration,
you must effect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not
be sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration,
you may file your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA
Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure effective September 15, 2005 (as may be
amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate.
You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Administrator or Sponsor, and
that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that you will not join your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Official Rules, or the Administrator’s or Sponsor’s Text Terms and Conditions, if this class action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were never entered into, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do you, Administrator, or Sponsor agree to class or collective procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Administrator and Sponsor agree that we will submit all disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these
Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant, Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with
the Instant Win Game, or any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you, Administrator
and Sponsor, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan
without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. The place of arbitration shall be Oakland
