In the event of a dispute about the identity of an Entrant entering via online entry, the entry will be assigned to the authorized account holder of the e-mail address submitted at the time of entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet Access Provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Neither Sponsor nor Independent Administrator will verify receipt of entries for Entrants. All entries submitted become the sole property of the Sponsor and will not be returned.

For example, all drawings for Entry Periods from Saturday, July 16 to Sunday, July 24 (total of 108 Entry Periods) will be held on Monday July 25. The clock maintained by the Sponsor in connection with the operation of the Sweepstakes Website will be the official timekeeper for this Sweepstakes.
