Any attempt by a person to use multiple accounts or identities to gain more entries than permitted by these Official Rules shall result in disqualification at the discretion of Sponsor.

The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to the email account by the email service provider. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the person who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.

If you participate from your mobile phone, such activity will be subject to the charges pursuant to your wireless service provider’s rate plan.
