8. GENERAL CONDITIONS:
Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes if any fraud, virus or other technical
problem corrupts the administration, security, or proper play of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole
discretion. In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received
up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to
be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules
or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the
Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right
to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these
Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. In the event of a dispute as to any online entry, the
authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account
holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or
other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.
By receipt of a prize, winner agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor and their respective officers, directors,
employees and agents (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation
in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize.

or printing errors; (b) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the Sweepstakes; (c) technical failures of any
kind, including, but not limited to electronic malfunctioning of any network, hardware or software; (d) technical or
human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (e) lost, delayed,
misdirected, or undeliverable mail; or (f) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly
or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt of any prize.
Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that: (a) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or
connected with, the Sweepstakes or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of
class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in District of Columbia; (b) any and all claims, judgments
and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering a Sweepstakes,
but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (c) entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not
limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages. All issues and questions concerning the construction,

obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with,
the laws of the District of Columbia.
