If for any reason the Promotion is not capable of running as planned, including due to infection by
computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, automated plays, fraud, technical

or lines, computer online systems, servers, or providers, computer equipment, software, failure of
any email or Game Play to be received by Sponsor on account of technical problems or traffic
congestion on the Internet or at any website, any combination thereof, or otherwise, including any
injury or damage to participant’s or any other person’s mobile device or computer related to, or
resulting from, participation or downloading of any materials in the Promotion.
In no event will Sponsor be obligated to award more prizes than the number of prizes stated in
these Official Rules. If for any reason whatsoever Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that
the Promotion is no longer capable of running as intended by these Official Rules, Sponsor may
at its sole discretion cancel, suspend or modify the Promotion in whole or in part. For example, if
due to production, mechanical or other error more prizes than the number listed in these Official
Rules are made available and/or claimed, then Sponsor may suspend prize awards for such prize
category and award any remaining unclaimed prizes (up to the total set forth in these Official
Rules) in a random drawing from among all eligible prize claimants for such prizes as determined
by Sponsor.
Antifraud detection devices may be used for verification purposes. In the event there is a
discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any
Promotion materials and the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall
prevail, govern and control.
Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation
process. Any Game Play that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed a
defective play, is void and will not be honored.
Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that
provision. Headings are solely for convenience and will not be deemed to affect in any manner
the meaning or intent of the documents or any provision hereof.
Caution: Any attempt to deliberately damage any website associated with the Promotion
or undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal and

damages from any person responsible for the attempt to the fullest extent permitted by
law.
