The potential winners will also be required to submit to a confidential background check to confirm eligibility and ensure that Experience attendance by such person, or the use of any such person in advertising or publicity, will not pose a security threat or bring Sponsor or Released Parties into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on Sponsor or Released Parties as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and, in such event, the prize may be forfeited. Non-compliance with any of the foregoing may result in disqualification and awarding of prize to an alternate winner, if time permits. If any prize or prize notification letter is returned as undeliverable or the prize is declined for any reason, potential winner will be disqualified and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion and time permitting, an alternate potential winner may be selected by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received.

Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Sweeps or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the state of Massachusetts. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsor in connection with the Sweeps, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the state of Massachusetts without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules.
