Any attempt or suspected attempt to use robotic, automatic, programmed, or otherwise, illicit means to enter the Contest, or any other methods not authorized by these Contest Rules, for example, but not limited to, creating multiple accounts, identities, or registrations, all in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, shall be deemed as tampering and may disqualify you from entering, participating and/or winning a prize. Online entry forms that contain false or incomplete information may be void. Entries that do not conform with or satisfy any or all of the conditions of the Contest Rules will be deemed void. No correspondence will be entered into except with selected entrants. Proof of transmission (screenshots or captures, etc.) does not constitute proof of receipt. The sole determinant of time for the purposes of receipt of a valid entry in this Contest will be the Sponsor’s insurance provider’s server machine(s).

If the Winning Entrant does not respond in accordance with these Contest Rules, he/she will be disqualified and will not receive a prize, the Contest will be terminated and a prize will not be awarded. The Sponsor is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of the Winning Entrant to receive notification or for the Sponsor to receive a Winning Entrant’s response.
Disputes regarding identity of entrant: If the identity of the Winning Entrant entering electronically is disputed, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the Authorized Account Holder (the individual assigned to the e-mail address for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address).
