Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor has the right to verify entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and, on the basis of its investigation, to disqualify any entrant at any time during or after a Sweepstakes Entry Period and require immediate prize return if applicable. Sweepstakes Entities assume no responsibility for lost, late, incomplete, inaccurate, delayed, destroyed, damaged, or misdirected entries (e.g. misdirected as spam/junk), prize notifications, or any other information or communication (in whole or in part).
