to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation
of these Official Rules or acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any
person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of
criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Station reserves the right to seek

legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues

Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of entrant and Station in connection with the Contest,
shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the state in which the Station
is located, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the state
in which the Station is located or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of
the laws of any jurisdiction other than the state in which the Station is located.
