sweepstakes club (or similar method), with multiple identities, devices, accounts, IP or e-mail
addresses, and/or phone numbers, nor shall entrants use any other device or artifice to enter. Any
suspected use of cheating, fraud, on-line clubs (or similar methods), exchange sites, robotic,

absolute discretion, will void all such entries by such methods, and disqualify any entrant
suspected of using/benefitting from such methods. Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor has
the right to verify entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and, on the basis

timeframe (as determined by Sponsor or Administrator in their sole discretion), the Prize may be
forfeited. If the Prize notification is forfeited, returned as undeliverable, or if the winner cannot

to the address provided by Sponsor.

prize to any such individual will not bring the Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal
or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Sponsor, its brands, products and services, or this
Sweepstakes.

announcements, human or other error causes more than the stated number of winners/prizes as
