This release, defense, indemnification and hold harmless obligation, as well as the “Limitation of Liability and Arbitration” provision below at paragraph fourteen (14), shall survive any expiration or termination of any Sweepstakes and entrants’ use of any Sweepstakes Entities.
- Publicity Release: In addition, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, by entering any Sweepstakes, each entrant grants to Sponsor and Sponsor's designees the worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, and transferable right to copy, reformat, resize, crop, recolor, distribute, transmit, publish, display, and otherwise use all or any portion of entrant's entry materials and entrant's name, state of residence, biographical information, statements, voice, story, likeness, prize information, and any information or materials associated with entrant's entry (collectively, the "Attributes") for Sponsor's publicity, advertising, marketing, and Sweepstakes purposes worldwide, in all media and by all means now known or hereafter devised, without notice, review, approval, or additional compensation, and releases any Sweepstakes Entities from all claims arising out of the use of such Attributes. Each entrant irrevocably waives any moral or other rights he or she may possess to the extent they might otherwise limit the free exercise by Sponsor of the above rights. By accepting a prize, each winner reaffirms the above grant and agrees to execute any documents reasonably requested by Sponsor to confirm such grant if asked to do so.
- Termination: If for any reason, act, or occurrence, any Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including without limitation infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, mechanically reproduced, software generated, or otherwise automated entries, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of the Sponsor which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, or integrity of the game or contest, the Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it believes has tampered with the contest process, and/or cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes.

images and/or goodwill to which Sponsor wishes to associate, contain false or unsubstantiated statements, or
be mechanically reproduced, software generated, or otherwise automated. In addition, Sponsor reserves the
right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is considered by Sponsor in its sole discretion or
found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of any Sweepstakes, to be acting in violation of
these Rules, to be acting in an un-sportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or
undermine the legitimate operation of any Sweepstakes, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other
person, or who communicates messages or images inconsistent with the positive images and/or goodwill to
which Sponsor wishes to associate, or to disqualify any entries that do not meet the requirements in these
Official Rules, that contain gibberish, or that appear in Sponsor’s sole judgment to have been generated by
automation. Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the
fullest extent permitted by law. Christy Sports’ failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not
constitute a waiver of that provision, or any other provision. In case of a dispute over the identity of an
entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be considered to be the entrant
for entries via internet. Entries made by any individual other than those described herein or by any entity,
including but not limited to commercial contest subscription notification and/or entering services, will be
declared invalid and disqualified for this Sweepstakes. In case of dispute as to identity of an entrant, entry will
be deemed to have been made by the registered user of the e-mail account, and if a prize is won, will be
awarded to the registered user, if eligible.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, softwaregenerated or other automated entries will be accepted. Sponsor is not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by web site users, or tampering or hacking, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in any Sweepstakes. If, for any reason, any Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned by reason of infection by computer virus, worms, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which, in the sole opinion of Sponsor, could corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Internet portion of this Sweepstakes for any drawing(s) and select the winner from regular mail-in entries and Internet entries received for that drawing prior to the action taken.

- Limitation of Liability and Arbitration: Except where prohibited, each entrant agrees that: (1) any and all
questions, controversies, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with the construction, validity,
interpretation, and enforceability of the Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant and sponsor in
connection with any Sweepstakes or any prize shall be resolved exclusively by means of arbitration administered
by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, in Denver, Colorado,
and shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action or representative action, and entrant
shall not seek to aggregate any claims with other individuals; (2) SPONSOR’S LIABILITY ARISING IN CONNECTION

OTHERWISE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF (I) $1.00 WITH RESPECT TO NON-‘WINNERS’ AND ANY RUNNERSUP;
AND (II) $5.00 WITH RESPECT TO ANY ‘WINNER’; AND SHALL BE FURTHER LIMITED TO ACTUAL DAMAGES
EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN SUCH AMOUNTS, RESPECTIVELY, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW,
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NEGLIGENCE, NONE OF THE SWEEPSTAKES ENTITIES
SHALL BE LIABLE FOR, AND ENTRANT WAIVES ALL RIGHTS TO CLAIM ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OR ATTORNEYS FEES ARISING OUT OF THE SWEEPSTAKES OR PRIZES
OFFERED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES, AND ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO HAVE DAMAGES MULTIPLIED OR
OTHERWISE INCREASED (EVEN IF ANY ENTRANT OR ANY ENTRANT’S AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), AND TO RECOVER OTHER SUCH RELATED COSTS OF BRINGING A
CLAIM, NOR SHALL AN ENTRANT BE ENTITLED TO RESCIND THIS AGREEMENT NOR SEEK INJUNCTIVE OR ANY
OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having
Claims shall be heard by a single arbitrator. The place of arbitration shall be Denver, Colorado. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules of the State of Colorado or of any other jurisdiction. Depositions shall be limited to a maximum of three per party and shall be held within twenty days of the making of a request. Additional depositions may be scheduled only with the permission of the arbitrators, and for good cause shown. Each deposition shall be limited to a maximum of seven hours duration. Time is of the essence for any arbitration under this agreement and arbitration hearings shall take place within ninety (90) days of filing and awards rendered within one hundred twenty (120) days. The Arbitrator shall agree to these limits prior to accepting appointment. The arbitrator will have no authority to award punitive or other damages not measured by the prevailing party's actual damages, except as may be required by statute. The prevailing party shall not be entitled to an award of attorney fees. Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties. The parties agree that failure or refusal of a party to pay its required share of the deposits for arbitrator compensation or administrative charges shall constitute a waiver by that party to present evidence or cross-examine witness. In such event, the other party shall be required to present evidence and legal argument as the arbitrator may require for the making of an award. Such waiver shall not allow for a default judgment against the non-paying party in the absence of evidence presented as provided for above. BY PARTICIPATING IN ANY SWEEPSTAKES, AN ENTRANT WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO BRING ANY CLAIM OR ACTION RELATED TO SUCH MATTERS IN ANY FORUM BEYOND ONE YEAR AFTER THE FIRST OCCURRENCE OF THE KIND OF ACT, EVENT, CONDITION OR OMISSION UPON WHICH THE CLAIM OR ACTION IS BASED.
