    Other Rules that May Apply to Company Sweepstakes
    32.    Sweepstakes are subject to all applicable laws and regulations and are void where prohibited.  Odds of winning depend upon the how the Sweepstakes is conducted.  For random drawings, the odds of winning will depend upon the number of entries received.  For sweepstakes in which winners are qualified for a random drawing to determine the grand prize winner, odds will depend on the total number of Qualifiers.  For sweepstakes of skill that do not involve any element of chance, odds of winning are not applicable.  All tie breaking procedures will be published on the Company’s website and/or communicated by email to tied sweepstakes Entrants.

    33.    Company may or may not respond to inquiries by Entrants or potential Entrants regarding the status of their entry and/or to questions about a Sweepstakes, regardless of the means by which such inquiry is made, and Company is not obligated to respond to, or to treat, all such inquiries identically (even if the question is identical).  Time considerations and/or volume, among other things, may impact a Companys’ desire or ability to respond to such inquiries from time to time.  Notwithstanding anything that may be communicated by any Company employee in connection with any such inquiry, the sole determining source for information related to a particular Sweepstakes will be the rules for such particular Sweepstakes, and any information communicated by Company employee(s) will neither be binding on the Company nor be deemed to be providing any type of improper assistance or advantage to any particular Entrant over another.  Any attempt by Company to respond to an inquiry will be in the context of providing good customer service only and, in some instances, to address technical issues/problems.

    34.    Participation in a Sweepstakes and/or acceptance of prize(s) constitutes consent by Entrant and/or winner’s (and by winner’s guest(s) if applicable) for the Company or its agents (i) to interview the Entrant and/or winner(s) (and winner’s guest(s), if applicable), (ii) to photograph, film, and record (audio and/or video) Entrant and/or winner(s) (and winner’s guest(s), if applicable), and (iii) to use in commerce and in any medium now or hereafter known throughout the world in perpetuity and without payment of any compensation or additional consideration: his/her name, hometown (city and state), biographic information, likeness, photograph, audio or video recording, Entry Materials, prize information (if any), and/or any statements made by him/her regarding the Company, the Promotion, and/or its sponsor(s) for purposes of trade, publicity, or promotion without notice or additional compensation, notification, or permission, except where prohibited by law.  

    35.    Participation in a Sweepstakes and/or acceptance of prize(s) constitutes agreement by Entrant and/or winner (and by winner’s guest(s) if applicable) release, forever discharge, indemnify, and hold harmless Company, its affiliates, parents, assigns, successors, employees, participating Sponsors, agents and all others connected with them and the promotion, Sweepstakes, and/or event (the “Released Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, actions, and damages sustained or incurred by participation in the said promotion, Sweepstakes, and/or event and the receipt and use of any prize(s) awarded (if any) through such promotion, Sweepstakes, and/or event arising in any manner whatsoever, including but not limited to an act or omission, whether negligent, intentional or otherwise caused by Company, its affiliates, parents, assigns, successors, employees, sponsors, agents and all others connected with them and the promotion, Sweepstakes, and/or event.  In the event that the associated Sweepstakes is administered by Company (in whole or in part) via a Facebook page, Entrants understand and agree that the foregoing liability release and indemnification in this Section 35 will also include the release and indemnification of Facebook by Entrant in the same manner in which Company is released and indemnified.

    36.    The Released Parties are not responsible for (i) typographical or other errors in the printing, the offering, or the administration of a Sweepstakes or in the announcement of a prize; (ii) incorrect or inaccurate information, human error, failure, or omission; (iii) unauthorized human intervention; (iv) lost, stolen, mangled, misdirected, illegible, incomplete, or late entries; (v) entries not received due to difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties and other technological problems or for telephone service outages, delays, busy signals, poor signals or signal interference, accidental disconnection, equipment malfunctions, and any other technological failures of any kind; or (vi) any cancellations, delays, diversions, or substitutions or omissions whatsoever by any transportation providers or any other persons or entities providing any services to Entrant(s) and/or winner(s) (and winner’s guest(s) if applicable) including any results thereof such as changes in services or location necessitated by same.  Further, the Released Parties are not responsible if any part of a Sweepstakes cannot be conducted and/or if a prize, either in whole or in part, cannot be awarded due to acts of God, acts of war, natural disasters, weather, acts of terrorism, or other factors beyond the Released Parties’ control.

    37.    If for any reason a Sweepstakes cannot be executed as planned, including but not limited to, as a result of infection by computer virus, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of the Released Parties that may corrupt or affect the security, administration, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, or if the Sweepstakes is compromised or becomes technically corrupted in any way, electronically or otherwise, the Company reserves the right to cancel, terminate, suspend, and/or modify the Sweepstakes without prior notice.  If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the original end date, the Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion to, to modify the procedure for selecting winners, unless the nature of the event giving rise to such termination renders it impossible to select winner(s).

    38.    Except if inconsistent with these general sweepstakes rules or the specific rules for any one particular sweepstakes, any reference to the Company’s privacy policy in Sweepstakes Materials or advertisements will be deemed to refer to the Company’s privacy policy (if any) available from a link at the bottom of the Company’s Website (“Company Privacy Policy”), unless a different privacy policy is specifically identified, in which case, any such third party privacy policy will NOT be applicable to or part of these Sweepstakes rules.  Company may use cookies and/or collect IP addresses for the purpose of implementing or exercising its rights or obligations under the Sweepstakes rules, for information purposes, identifying your location, including without limitation for the purpose of redirecting you to the appropriate geographic website, if applicable, or for any other lawful purpose in accordance with the Company Privacy Policy.  Information collected by Company in connection with entering, voting or otherwise participating in any Sweepstakes may be shared with sponsors of particular Sweepstakes, and otherwise used in accordance with the Company Privacy Policy.
