GENERAL RULES
1. No Purchase Necessary: NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT
INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
2. Conflict Between Rules: These General Rules shall apply to all sweepstakes and contests sponsored
by any of the Kraft Group Companies, unless modified or superseded by the rules written for a
specific sweepstakes or contest (the “Official Promotion Rules”). In the event that any provision of
the Official Promotion Rules conflicts with any provision of the General Rules provided herein, the
terms of the Official Promotion Rules shall prevail with respect to such matter. Each Sponsor or
Administrator (as defined in the Official Promotion Rules) reserves the right in its sole discretion to
interpret the rules of any sweepstakes or contest, and such interpretation shall be binding upon all
participants. The Official Promotion Rules and the General Rules may be referred to collectively as
the “Official Rules” for a sweepstakes or contest.
3. Entries: Limit of one (1) entry per person per Promotion, or if applicable, per prize period within a
single Promotion. No illegible, incomplete, forged or altered entries will be accepted. Entries will
not be acknowledged or returned. Any person who attempts to participate with multiple e-mail and/or
street addresses, under multiple identities or uses any device or artifice to submit multiple entries in
violation of the entry limitation will be disqualified. In case of dispute, an on-line entry will be
deemed made by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to submit entry or
otherwise associated with the online or social media account used to submit the entry. “Authorized
account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet
access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning e-
mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. Proof of submission of
an entry does not constitute proof of receipt.
4. Selection of Winners: Winners of a sweepstakes will be determined from all eligible entries received
in a random drawing held as soon as practicable after the close of the sweepstakes period, and usually
within approximately three (3) days. Judges’ decisions are final on all matters relating to the
sweepstakes. Winners will be notified by telephone or email, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the
event that a Promotion has multiple prize periods, entrants may enter during more than one prize
period, but winners will not be eligible to win prizes in subsequent prize periods and non-winning
entries will NOT be carried forward to subsequent prize period drawings. Winners of a contest will
be selected according to the Official Promotion Rules.
5. Prizes and Odds: Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received for each
sweepstakes. The prizes will be awarded (assuming eligible entries are received). Sponsor reserves
the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value in the event any advertised prize becomes
unavailable. In the event that the approximate retail value of a prize as advertised in the Official
Rules exceeds the actual retail value at the time the prize is awarded, winner shall not receive any
difference in value. Unless specifically stated in the prize description, winner is responsible for all
costs and fees associated with the prize, including but not limited to transportation and
accommodations.
6. Prize Delivery. Taxes and fees, if any, are the sole responsibility of prize winners. No other
substitution or transfer of prizes permitted. Sponsor responsible only for prize delivery; not
responsible for prize utility, quality or otherwise.

spouses) and those living in the same household of each are not eligible to enter.
8. Verification of Winners and Delivery of Prizes: Each Winner may be required to sign an affidavit of
eligibility and liability release and, where permitted, a publicity release. Prize may be awarded to an
alternate winner if affidavit/release(s) is not returned within three (3) days of the date of first
attempted notification. Failure to comply with this deadline may result in forfeiture of the prize and
selection of an alternate winner, time permitting. Return of any prize or prize notification as
undeliverable may result in forfeiture of the prize and selection of an alternate winner. Acceptance
of the prize constitutes permission for Sponsor and its agencies to use winner’s name, address,
likeness, and/or prize information for advertising and promotional purposes in any medium without
additional compensation to the extent permitted by law.

event of any such cancellation, termination or suspension, a notice will be posted and a random
drawing will be held from among all eligible, non-suspect entries received which are not affected by
the problem. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any entrant (and all of
his or her sweepstakes or contest entries) from this sweepstakes or contest or any other promotion
conducted now or in the future by Sponsor or any of its affiliates if he or she tampers with the entry
process or if his or her fraud, misconduct, or other action that affects the integrity of the sweepstakes
or contest. For contests that involve voting open to the general public, the use of “vote-swapping” or

“vote trading” websites (including but not limited to Facebook pages) shall constitute an action that
affects the integrity of the contest, and any entrant or voter that utilizes such a website is subject to
disqualification. Without limiting the foregoing, use of script, macro or any device to automate
voting, hiring outsourced vote-farming services, paying for votes, or engaging in any other conduct
deemed inappropriate, disruptive or unsportsmanlike, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion,
is prohibited, and any entries or votes received through such means will be void. Any attempt by any
voter or entrant to submit or solicit more than the stated number of votes by using multiple/different
email addresses, Facebook IDs, identities or any other method will void that person’s votes and entry
(if any), and he/she may be disqualified from further voting or other participation in the contest.
