9. DISQUALIFICATION: Entrants found tampering with or abusing any aspect of this Contest, as solely
determined by Sponsor, will be disqualified. If disqualified for any of the above abuses, Sponsor
reserves the right to terminate entrant’s eligibility to participate in the Contest. Any attempt by any
person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be in violation of
criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek
recourse 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. Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, cancel,
suspend and/or modify the Contest if any fraud, virus or other technical problem corrupts the
administration, security, or proper play of the Contest, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
In such event, Sponsor reserves the right, but not the obligation, to award the prizes at random from
among the eligible, non-suspect Contest Entries received up to the time of the impairment.

attorney’s fees. Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited
to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages. Sponsor reserves the right to correct
typographic, clerical or printing errors in any Contest materials. Sponsor is not responsible for any
typographical or other error in the printing of this Contest, the administration of the Contest or in the
announcement of prize winners, including such error as may give an erroneous indication that a prize
has been won. In the event the Sponsor is prevented from continuing with this Contest, or the
integrity and/or feasibility of the Contest is undermined by any event including but not limited to fire,
flood, pandemic/epidemic, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute, or strike, act of God or public enemy,
satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, war (declared or undeclared), terrorist threat or
activity, or any federal, state, provincial or local government law, order of regulation, order of any

and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in
accordance with, the laws of the State of Georgia, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict
of law rules (whether of the State of Georgia or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the
application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Georgia.
