sole discretion, to disqualify any individual implicated in such action and/or to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend this
Sweepstakes or any portion thereof. In the event this Sweepstakes is canceled, the Sponsor may (at Sponsor’s sole
discretion) conduct a random drawing to award the stated prize from among all eligible, non-suspect Entries received prior
to the time of the action or event warranting such cancellation. If such cancellation, termination, modification, or
suspension occurs, notification will be posted at the Sweepstakes Site. The Releasees are not responsible for the actions

interfere with the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes. Persons found
tampering with or abusing any aspect of this Sweepstakes, or whom Sponsor believes to be causing malfunction, error,

and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may result in immediate disqualification of the Entrant, as well as other possible
consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future sweepstakes, contest or promotion. ANY
ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DAMAGE OR CORRUPT ANY SOCIAL MEDIA
PLATFORM OR WEB SITE, OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES IS A
VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, THE SPONSOR
RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE
FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
If a dispute arises about who submitted a Social Media Entry, the Social Media Entry will be deemed submitted by the
authorized account holder of the Instagram or Twitter account entered (as applicable). The authorized account holder of
the Instagram or Twitter account entered is deemed the natural person who has registered with Instagram or Twitter (as
applicable) for the user name associated with the submitted Entry. The potential winner may be requested to provide
Sponsor with proof that he or she is the authorized registered user of the Instagram or Twitter account (as applicable)
associated with the winning Entry and that all eligibility requirements are met.
If a dispute arises about who submitted an Online Entry, the Online Entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized
account holder of the email address used. The authorized account holder of the email address is deemed the natural
person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, service provider, or other online organization
that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. A potential
prize winner may be requested to provide the Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email
address associated with the winning Entry and that all eligibility requirements are met.
In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an Entry cannot be resolved to
Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected Entry will be deemed ineligible. The Releasees are not responsible for electronic
communications that are undeliverable as a result of any form of active or passive filtering of any kind, or insufficient
space in Entrant’s email account to receive email messages. Also, the Releasees are not responsible, and may disqualify
an Entrant, if his or her Social Media Platform account, email address or telephone number does not work or if it is
changed without Entrant giving prior written notice to Sponsor.
NOTE: Entry must be made by the Entrant only as detailed above. Entries made by any other individual or any entity,
and/or originating at any other web site or email address, including, but not limited to, commercial sweepstakes
subscription notification and/or entering service sites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this
Sweepstakes. Entries generated by a script, computer programs, macro, programmed, robotic or other automated means
are void and may be disqualified. The use of any device or software to automate the Entry process is prohibited. Entries
or other Sweepstakes materials that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted, damaged, destroyed, forged, false, lost, late,
misdirected, postage due, deceptive, in greater quantity than the limit stated above or otherwise not in compliance with
the Official Rules may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
MISCELLANEOUS: The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not affect the validity or
enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules is determined to be invalid or
otherwise unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions will remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their
terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official
Rules will not constitute a waiver of that provision. Entrants agree to waive any rights to claim ambiguity of these Official
Rules. Headings are solely for convenience of reference and will not be deemed to affect in any manner the meaning or
intent of the documents or any provision hereof. In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures
or other statements contained in any Sweepstakes-related materials, privacy policy or terms of use on the Entry Site
and/or the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control and the
discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
