Limit: Entries must be received before the end of the Sweepstakes Period to be eligible for the Sweepstakes drawing. Each entrant may submit only one (1) Entry during the Sweepstakes Period.

In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the email address submitted in the Entry will be deemed to be the entrant and must comply with these Official Rules. 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 email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.

The odds of winning depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Major restrictions apply to the use, availability or receipt of any prize.
