Proof of submitting Entry information to the Sweepstakes Site is not considered proof of delivery or receipt.  Illegible, incomplete and mechanically reproduced Entries as well as Entries in excess of the number stated above from any one (1) valid email address and/or person will be disqualified.  Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned.  False, fraudulent or deceptive Entries or acts shall render Entrants ineligible.
If for any reason the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, or if the Sweepstakes or the Sweepstakes Site (or any portion thereof) becomes corrupted or does not allow the proper playing of the Sweepstakes and processing of Entries in accordance with these Official Rules, or if infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, actions by Entrants, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes, in the Sponsor’s sole opinion, corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes or the granting of the Prize or any components thereof, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual implicated in such action and/or to cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend the Sweepstakes or any portion thereof.  In the event the Sweepstakes is cancelled, and to the extent possible as determined by Sponsor, Sponsor will conduct a random drawing to select Entrants from among all eligible, non-suspect Entries received prior to the time of the action or event warranting such cancellation, and to award the Prize (or any awardable portion(s) thereof). In the event that Sponsor determines that there are no eligible Entrants, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to not award the Prize (or any portion(s) thereof).  ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEB SITE OR EMAIL ADDRESS (INCLUDING THE SWEEPSTAKES SITE) OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES 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.  If a dispute arises about who submitted an Entry to the Sweepstakes Site, the Entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email account entered. The authorized account holder is deemed the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, service provider, or other online organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.  The Potential Grand Prize Winner may be requested to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning Entry and that all eligibility requirements are met.
