prize cannot be awarded due to circumstances beyond the control of Sponsor, a substitute prize of equal or greater retail

the sole discretion of Sponsor. The value of the prize represents Sponsor’s good faith determination of the maximum retail
value thereof. No refunds or credit for changes are allowed. The ARV of any prize is subject to price fluctuations in the

federal, state and/or local taxes, if applicable, and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize they receive. The
stated ARV of each prize is based on available information provided to Sponsor and the value of the prize awarded to a
Winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. If a prize is valued at $600 or more, the Winner must provide
Sponsor with a valid social security number before the prize will be awarded for tax reporting purposes and an IRS Form-
1099 may be issued for the actual value of the prize received. Other restrictions may apply. If prize is awarded but goes
unclaimed or is forfeited by recipient, the prize may not be re-awarded, in Sweepstakes Entities’ sole discretion.
5. WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: The Administrator will randomly select the potential winners from all
eligible Entries received during each Entry Period within approximately ten (10) business days of the end of each Entry
Period. Each potential winner will be notified by email and/or telephone, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion, within
approximately ten (10) business days of the end of each Entry Period. Each potential winner will be required to respond
(as directed by the Administrator and/or Sponsor) to the notification within seventy-two (72) hours (or a shorter time if
required by exigencies) of first attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in
forfeiture of the prize and the Administrator will randomly select an alternate winner from the remaining eligible entries.
Potential winners will be required to verify address and complete, sign, and return within seventy-two (72) hours (or a
shorter time if required by exigencies) an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release, and, unless prohibited by law, a publicity
release and other legal documents as may be required by Sponsor in its sole discretion (collectively, the “Prize Claim
Documents”) covering eligibility, liability, advertising, publicity and media appearance issues. Failure to return the Prize
Claim Documents within the specified time period may result in forfeiture of the prize and selection of an alternate winner
from the remaining eligible entries for that prize. A prize will not be awarded/fulfilled until all such properly executed
documents are returned. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize
in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed.
Administrator reserves the right to disqualify anyone not fully complying with the Official Rules.

of law or conflict of law principles that would result in the application of any law other than that of California. As a condition
of participating in this Sweepstakes, Entrants agree that any and all disputes which cannot be resolved between the
parties, and causes of action arising out of or in connection with this Sweepstakes, shall be resolved individually through
binding arbitration, without resort to any form of class action, in accordance with the arbitration provision set forth below.
11. ARBITRATION PROVISION: By participating in this Sweepstakes, each Entrant agrees that (1) any claim, dispute, or
controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) the entrant may have against Sponsor arising out of, relating to, or
connected in any way with the Sweepstakes, the awarding or redemption of any prize and/or the determination of the
scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration
administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration
agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal
Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in San Francisco, California; (4) the arbitrator’s
decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Terms and Conditions and any of the other agreements
referenced herein that the applicable participant may have entered into in connection with the Sweepstakes; (5) the
arbitrator shall apply California law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of
privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative

rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, Sponsor agrees to pay them and/or forward them
on the entrant’s behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if entrant is able to demonstrate that the
costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of entrant’s filing and
hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being
Creative Zing Promotion Group ” 2100 East Robinson Street ” Orlando, FL 32803 ” 407.514.0044
cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be
invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision
shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or
conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal,
then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither entrant nor Sponsor shall be entitled to
arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at www.jamsadr.com.
