Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant or winner and may refuse to award a prize to a person who is not eligible or has violated a rule, gained unfair advantage in the Promotion, or obtained winner status using fraudulent means. If a winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with the Rules, the winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be awarded the prize in a separate random drawing.

If the Promotion is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the Force Majeure Event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such a selection process will be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.
