Sponsor and Administrator additionally reserve the right, in their sole and absolute discretion: (a) to modify, suspend or terminate the Sweeps should causes beyond Sponsor’s or Administrator’s control corrupt or interfere with the administration, integrity, operation, security or proper play of the Sweeps; or (b) to disqualify any entrant found to be or suspected of: (i) tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweeps; (ii) acting in violation of these Rules; or (iii) acting in an un-sportsmanlike manner.
