entries will carry over into subsequent Daily Entry Period drawings. Administrator will randomly select the
potential Grand Prize winners from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period, on or around

Prize winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) will be required to
sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and where not prohibited a Publicity
Release (“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator, within forty-eight (48) hours of the date

required time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits
his/her prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that
a potential Grand Prize winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an
alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate

proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event,
Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries
received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. Sponsor reserves the
right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the
operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other
promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole
discretion, to disqualify any individual found to be: (a) violating the Official Rules; or (b) violating the terms
of service, conditions of use and/or general rules or guidelines of any Sponsor or Administrator property
or service. Any person who supplies false information, obtains entries by fraudulent means, or is
otherwise determined to be in violation of these Official Rules in an attempt to obtain any prize will forfeit
any prize won and may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Any attempt by any person to
undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and,
should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to
the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that provision.
10. Limitations of Liability: The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate
information, including errors or typos in these Official Rules or any Sweepstakes-related communication
or materials, whether caused by a Released Party or entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment

including, but not limited to, malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network
hardware or software, failed, incorrect, incomplete, inaccurate, garbled or delayed electronic
communications or entry information, any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation
or transmission, failures or technical malfunction of any computer online systems, servers, providers,
computer equipment, software, email, players or browsers, whether on account of technical problems,
traffic congestion on the Internet or at any website, or on account of any combination of the foregoing; (3)
unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or
human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (5)
late, lost, undeliverable, damaged or stolen mail; (6) any injury or damage to persons or property which
may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or
receipt or use or misuse of any prize; or (7) late, lost, misdirected, illegible, incomplete or mutilated entries
or for theft, destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. If for any reason an entrant’s
entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s
sole remedy is another entry in the Sweepstakes, if it is possible. No more than the stated number of
prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other
reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available
and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random
drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.
11. Dispute Resolution: You agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise
relating in any way to or arising out of the Sweepstakes or the Official Rules, will be resolved in
accordance with the provisions set forth in this Dispute Resolution section. Please read this section
carefully. It affects your rights and will have a substantial impact on how claims you and we have against
each other are resolved.
You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with Administrator or Sponsor arising out of,
connected to, or in any way related to the Sweepstakes or the Official Rules, you will send a written
notice to the Administrator (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution
section will apply even to disagreements that may have arisen before you accepted these Official Rules.
You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal Department,
HelloWorld, Inc., 3000 Town Center, Suite 2100, Southfield, MI 48075. You agree that you will not take
any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after you send
a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within 10
business days after it is received, and you intend on taking legal action, you agree that you will file a
demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). This arbitration
provision limits the ability of you, Administrator, and Sponsor to litigate claims in court and you,
Administrator, and Sponsor each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal
judge. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Administrator or Sponsor in any state or federal
court. You agree that if you do sue in state or federal court, and Administrator or Sponsor brings a
successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by Administrator and
Sponsor in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you
must effect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be
sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you
may file your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer
Arbitration Rules effective September 1, 2014 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to
arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive
jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Administrator or Sponsor. The Federal Arbitration Act allows
for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the
agreement to arbitrate.
You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Administrator or Sponsor, and
that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that you will not
join your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Official Rules, if
this class action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were
never entered into, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be
refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do you, Administrator, or Sponsor agree to class or collective
procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Administrator and Sponsor agree that we
will submit all disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these
Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant, Administrator, and Sponsor in connection with
the Sweepstakes, or any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you, Administrator and
Sponsor, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Michigan
without giving effect

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. For entrants, to the extent there is a conflict between these
