By entering, you agree to be contacted by Sponsor (on behalf of itself, Promotion Partners, and their authorized representatives) with communications and reminders relating to the Competition. Sponsor has the right to verify entries and/or entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, and on the basis of its investigation, to disqualify any entrant at any time during or after the Competition Period. Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor shall have the right at any time, where necessary, to undertake all action including, but not limited to, disqualification, prize forfeiture and/or immediate prize return (from a previously confirmed winner, if applicable) and/or require further information as is reasonable to protect itself, or any of the Competition Entities against fraudulent or invalid claims, potential public scandal, ridicule, or disrepute in awarding the prize to any entrant or winner. Incomplete, invalid, illegal, unsuitable, or otherwise non-compliant entries (as determined in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion) will not be eligible. If, upon review, Sponsor (or its authorized representative) is unable to determine that an entrant/entry is compliant, or reasonably suspects that he/she/it is not compliant in whole or in part, the entry as a whole (and entrant) may be disqualified. Proof that you uploaded an entry does not constitute proof or evidence that it was received within the Competition Period or eligible for the Competition. Entries submitted via any other entry method/portal than stated herein will not be accepted.

In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an online entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used in connection with the entry will be deemed to be the entrant. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder, or otherwise eligible. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to an email address by an Internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
Contest Entities assume no responsibility for: lost, late, delayed, incomplete, inaccurate, stolen, misdirected, ineligible or illegible entries (in whole or in part); computer/server, telephone, network, electronic, digital, wireless or Internet hardware or software malfunctions, failures, connection problems, or unavailability; garbled, corrupt, or jumbled transmissions; browser incompatibility; service provider, Internet, Website, user, net inaccessibility or unavailability; congestion; technical errors; unauthorized human intervention; human errors; or the delayed, incorrect or inaccurate capture of entry or other information, or failure to capture any such information.
