Subject to the provisions of these Official Rules, only the type and quality of the Prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded in the Calendar Sweepstakes. The sole responsibility and liability of any irregular Entry Code or Sweepstakes Draw Code caused by the Sponsor is replacement with another randomly selected Entry Code or Sweepstakes Draw Code, as solely determined by the Sponsor.

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 as being available in the Prize category in question, 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), inclusive in such drawing shall be each Participant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances.

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.
