D. Waiver and Invalidity
Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that a provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Headings and captions are used in these Official Rules solely for ease of reference, and shall not be deemed or considered to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of these Official Rules or any provision thereof.

By participating in the Sweepstakes and by submitting a Prize Claim Document, except where legally prohibited, each verified winner hereby agrees and grants the Sponsor the right, but not the obligation, to use his/her name, voice, and likeness, along with his/her  address (city/town/village and province/territory) and any statements made by or attributed to such winner in any and all media (including the internet), now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity and throughout the universe, for advertising and promotional purposes in connection with the Sweepstakes without further notice, review, approval or compensation and releases the Sponsor and all directors, officers, employees, agents, advertising and promotional agencies, representatives, service agencies and independent contractors of the Sponsor from any and all liability with respect thereto.

B. Disqualification
It is each entrant’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has complied in full with all the conditions and requirements contained in these Official Rules.  The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering or interfering in any way with the process involved in entering the Sweepstakes or with the operation of the Sweepstakes, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in any unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the apparent intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to abuse, threaten or harass any other person.  The Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.

C. Printing and Production Errors or Omissions
The Sponsor has the following rights in respect to termination or modification of the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right, without prior notice and at any time, to terminate Sweepstakes, in whole or in part, or to modify, suspend or extend the Sweepstakes in any way and for any reason. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,  the Sponsor may terminate the Sweepstakes, in whole or in part, or modify, suspend or extend the Sweepstakes, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions (including, without limitation, computer viruses, glitches, or printing or production errors or omissions) have destroyed or severely undermined the proper play, integrity, and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes. In the event the Sponsor is impeded or prevented from continuing with the Sweepstakes as planned or intended by any event beyond its control, including, but not limited to fire, flood, natural or manmade epidemic or health hazard or crisis, earthquake, explosion, labour dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared), any federal, provincial, territorial or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, the order of any court or jurisdiction, or by any other cause not reasonably within the Sponsor’s control, then the Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend or terminate the Sweepstakes.  Only the number of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded in the Sweepstakes. The sole responsibility and liability of any irregular Sweepstakes Draw Code caused by the Sponsor, is replaced with another randomly selected Sweepstakes Draw Code, as solely determined by the Sponsor. Replacement shall be the sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstance.  If, due to printing or production errors or omissions or for any other reason whatever, the number of potential prize winners coming forward seeking to claim prizes exceeds the number of prizes as set out in these Official Rules, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, the winner may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize(s).

D. Waiver and Invalidity
Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.  The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that a provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Headings and captions are used in these Official Rules solely for ease of reference, and shall not be deemed or considered to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of these Official Rules or any provision thereof.
