Please read these Official Rules carefully, because by entering, participating or accepting a prize, you are agreeing to be unconditionally legally bound by all of the terms and conditions contained in these Official Rules. If you violate or fail to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules, we have the right to disqualify you, and you will forfeit the right to receive any prize.

All decisions of the Sponsor are and shall be final and binding.
