claims for such prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each Entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under

such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost,

kind of computer viruses, bugs, electronic, hardware, software, Internet, network, technical or telephone

failures, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, an event of force majeure or any other cause created

GENERAL CONDITIONS OF ENTRY:

All Entrants, as a condition of entry, agree that they have not been required to purchase any kind of Internet,

wireless, or data service whatsoever in order to participate in and/or enter the Sweepstakes. The

Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for the actions of Entrants in connection with the Sweepstakes,

including Entrants’ attempts to circumvent the Official Rules or otherwise interfere with the administration,

security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes. Persons found tampering with or abusing

any aspect of this Sweepstakes, or whom Sponsor believes to be causing malfunction, error, disruption or

damage may be disqualified. Additionally, any attempt to cheat the Sweepstakes, as determined in the

sole and absolute discretion of Sponsor, may result in immediate disqualification of the Entrant, as well as

other possible consequences, including disqualification from any and all existing and future sweepstakes.

ANY ATTEMPT BY A PERSON TO DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE (INCLUDING ANY SOCIAL MEDIA

PLATFORM OR APPLICATION) OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THIS

SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN

ATTEMPT BE MADE, SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK ALL LEGAL AND EQUITABLE

REMEDIES FROM AND AGAINST ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY

LAW. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to disqualify (or terminate the prize

of) any individual who is found to be, or suspected of, acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be

acting in an unsportsmanlike, obscene, immoral, or disruptive manner, or with the intent to annoy, abuse,

threaten or harass any other person.

Entrant further understands and agrees that all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of California

(“Section 1542”) and any similar law of any state or territory of the United States that may be applicable

with respect to the foregoing release(s) are hereby expressly and forever waived. Entrant acknowledges

that Section 1542 provides that: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE

CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF

EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY

AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” The releases hereunder are intended to

apply to all claims not known or suspected to exist with the intent of waiving the effect of laws requiring the

intent to release future unknown claims.

GOVERNING LAW:

The parties agree that the Sweepstakes and these Official Rules will be governed, construed and

interpreted under the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of

law rules (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction) which would cause the application of

the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION:

Entrants (or entrant’s parent if entrant is under the age of majority in their state/jurisdiction of residence),

Sponsor, and the Released Parties (each, a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”) each agree to fully and

finally settle all disputes only through binding arbitration; provided, however, the Sponsor shall be entitled

to seek injunctive or equitable relief in the state and federal courts in Los Angeles County, California and

any other court with jurisdiction over the Parties. In arbitration, there is no judge or jury and review is limited.

The arbitrator’s decision and award are final and binding, with limited exceptions, and judgment on the

award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The Parties agree that, except as set forth above, any

claim, suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Sweepstakes shall be resolved solely by

binding arbitration before a sole arbitrator under the streamlined Arbitration Rules Procedures of JAMS Inc.

(“JAMS”) or any successor to JAMS. In the event JAMS is unwilling or unable to set a hearing date within

fourteen (14) days of the filing of a “Demand for Arbitration”, then either Party can elect to have the

arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) or any other mutually agreeable

arbitration administration service. If an in-person hearing is required, then it will take place in Los Angeles,

California. The federal or state law that applies to these Official Rules will also apply during the arbitration.

Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be consolidated with any other

proceedings that involve any claims or controversy of another party, including any class actions; provided,

however, if for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable or

unenforceable, then the agreement to arbitrate doesn’t apply and the dispute must be brought in a court of

competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles County, California. Sponsor agrees to pay the administrative and

arbitrator’s fees in order to conduct the arbitration (but specifically excluding any travel or other costs of

Entrant to attend the arbitration hearing). Either Party may, notwithstanding this provision, bring qualifying

claims in small claims court.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:

BY ENTERING THE SWEEPSTAKES, ENTRANT (OR ENTRANT’S PARENT IF ENTRANT IS UNDER

THE AGE OF MAJORITY IN THEIR STATE/JURISDICTION OF RESIDENCE) AGREES THAT TO THE

EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW: (A) ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS AND CAUSES OF

ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR CONNECTED WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES, OR ANY PRIZE AWARDED,

WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION; (B) ANY

AND ALL CLAIMS, JUDGMENTS AND AWARDS WILL BE LIMITED TO ACTUAL THIRD-PARTY, OUTOF-POCKET COSTS INCURRED (IF ANY) NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS ($10.00), BUT IN NO

EVENT WILL ATTORNEYS’ FEES BE AWARDED OR RECOVERABLE; (C) UNDER NO

CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY ENTRANT BE PERMITTED TO OBTAIN ANY AWARD FOR, AND

ENTRANT HEREBY KNOWINGLY AND EXPRESSLY WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO SEEK, PUNITIVE,

INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS AND/OR ANY OTHER

DAMAGES, OTHER THAN ACTUAL OUT OF POCKET EXPENSES NOT TO EXCEED TEN DOLLARS

($10.00), AND/OR ANY RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR OTHERWISE INCREASED; AND

(D) ENTRANTS’ REMEDIES ARE LIMITED TO A CLAIM FOR MONEY DAMAGES (IF ANY) AND

ENTRANT IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR EQUITABLE RELIEF.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY, SO THE

ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

MISCELLANEOUS:

The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules or the Affidavit will not affect the

validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision of the Official Rules or the

Affidavit 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 or any other guidelines,

instructions, policies, or term will not constitute a waiver of that provision. Entrants agree to waive any

rights to claim ambiguity of these Official Rules. Headings are solely for convenience of reference and will

not be deemed to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of the documents or any provision hereof. In

the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between disclosures or other statements contained in any

Sweepstakes-related materials, privacy policy or terms of use on any website, social media platform or

application and/or the terms and conditions of the Official Rules, the Official Rules shall prevail, govern and

control and the discrepancy will be resolved in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion.
