Entries  must contain all information requested and comply with all any  applicable restrictions or requirements set forth herein to be valid. By  participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree that the Station may  contact them in connection with the Sweepstakes, via phone or text  message, at the telephone number from which the text message entry was  received. The Sponsor is not responsible for entries not received due to  difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer  difficulties and other technological problems. The Released Parties (as  defined below) are not responsible for lost, late, undeliverable,  illegible, damaged, stolen, garbled, delayed, misdirected, mutilated, or  incomplete entries or communications, regardless of cause. Multiple  entrants are not permitted to share the same email address and/or phone  number. Should multiple users of the same e-mail account or mobile phone  number, as applicable, enter the Sweepstakes and a dispute thereafter  arise regarding the identity of the entrant, the authorized account  holder of said e-mail account or mobile phone account at the time of  entry will be considered the entrant. “Authorized account holder” is  defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address or  mobile phone number by an Internet access provider, on-line service  provider, telephone service provider or other organization which is  responsible for assigning e-mail addresses, phone numbers or the domain  associated with the submitted e-mail address.

All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be  receipt acknowledged or returned. Sponsor’s decisions as to the  administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of  potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the  Sweepstakes. The Sponsor assumes no 

responsibility for entrants  not making timely texts to the Sponsor. The Sponsor assumes no  responsibility for entrants not receiving the short code as a result of  the delays or issues in the Internet stream or otherwise.  


Entry  by sending a text message will not improve your chance of winning. Text  message entries must meet all requirements set forth herein in order to  be eligible.  The text messaging method of entry is designed to work  with most of the U.S. major wireless carriers in the United States, but  the Sponsor makes no guarantee that any particular wireless service  provider will participate. To enter by text, the mobile phone that is  used must be capable of sending and receiving text messages. Entrants  should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability.  Wireless service providers may charge entrants for each text message,  including any error message that is sent and received in connection with  the Sweepstakes, based on the applicable wireless service pricing plan.  By texting to enter, the entrant grants permission to the Sponsor to  notify them via a return text messages relating to the Sweepstakes and  must agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith.  Entrant is responsible for all applicable fees and taxes associated with  placing a text message entry. Sponsor in its sole discretion may add or  delete a cellular carrier at any time, without notice. Proof of text  messaging to the short code is not considered proof of delivery to, or  receipt by, Sponsor of such entry.  Entrants are restricted to the use  of ordinary telephone equipment. The Sponsor disclaims all liability for  the inability of a entrant to complete or continue a telephone call due  to equipment malfunction, busy lines, inadvertent disconnections, acts  beyond the Sponsor’s control, or otherwise. By participating in a  Sweepstakes in which text message-based entry is permitted, entrants  acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through  third party providers; neither the Sponsor nor Station guarantee, nor  shall either be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text  message entry. Not all wireless carries support access to a common short  code (CSC). The CSC being used to enter a Sweepstakes may or may not be  compatible with all wireless carriers, and as such, you may not be able  to enter through the CSC method of entry. The Sponsor will at all times  consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as  being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the entrant  attempted to send the entry and any technical problems or other  complications that may have delayed its delivery. The Sponsor, through  its third party text messaging administrators, will store all messages  received on its system, and will send entrants reply texts relating to  the Sweepstakes throughout the Entry Period and up to 60 days. The  Sponsor is not responsible for service outages, message failures,  transmission delays or any other factor affecting the availability or  performance of the text messaging service. The Sponsor may require, on  request, proof of identity as to the rightful owner of the phone number  from which the text message entry was sent. The Sponsor reserves the  right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry if that entry's  source and sender cannot be reasonably determined. BY TEXTING TO ENTER,  THE ENTRANT GRANTS PERMISSION TO THE SPONSOR TO NOTIFY THEM VIA ONE (1)  RETURN TEXT MESSAGE PER ENTRY AND MUST AGREE TO ACCEPT ALL APPLICABLE  CHARGES ASSOCIATED THEREWITH. ENTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES TO RECEIVE  AT LEAST ONE (1) TEXT MESSAGE IN RESPONSE TO THE ORIGINAL SUBMISSION.

11. BINDING ARBITRATION.  Any controversy or  claim arising out of or relating to the Sponsor Sweepstakes shall be  settled by binding arbitration in a location determined by the  arbitrator as set forth herein (provided that such location is  reasonably convenient for claimant), or at such other location as may be  mutually agreed upon by the 

parties, in accordance with the  procedural rules for commercial disputes set forth in the Comprehensive  Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS (“JAMS Rules and Procedures”)  then prevailing, and judgment upon the award rendered by the  arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the JAMS Rules and  Procedures. The arbitrator shall apply Texas law consistent with the  Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations and shall  honor claims of privilege recognized at law. In the event that the  claimant is able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be  prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as  much of the claimant’s filing and hearing fees in connection with the  arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration  from being cost-prohibitive. If any part of this arbitration provision  is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal (other than that  claims will not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis), or  otherwise conflicts with the rules and procedures established by JAMS,  then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect  and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid,  unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained  herein. If, however, the portion that is deemed invalid, unenforceable  or illegal is that claims will not be arbitrated on a class or  representative basis, then the entirety of this arbitration provision  shall be null and void, and neither claimant nor Sponsor shall be  entitled to arbitrate their dispute. Upon filing a demand for  arbitration, all parties to such arbitration shall have the right of  discovery, which discovery shall be completed within sixty days after  the demand for arbitration is made, unless further extended by mutual  agreement of the parties.  THE ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES PURSUANT TO THIS  PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN THE ENTRANT’S INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A  PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE  PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF  OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED.  DO NOT ENTER  THIS SWEEPSTAKES IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY  ARBITRATED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE OFFICIAL RULES.  


12.  MISCELLANEOUS. Sponsor reserves the right to determine eligibility  should special circumstances arise, all decisions are considered final  and binding. Sponsor disclaims any responsibility to notify entrants of  any aspect related to the conduct of the Sweepstakes. As a condition of  participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree (and agree to confirm  in writing) that: (a) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted  to obtain costs, judgments, or awards for, and entrant hereby knowingly  and expressly waives all rights to claim or seek punitive, incidental,  consequential, special, or any other damages, other than for actual,  third-party out-of-pocket expenses, and in such limitation, entrant  further waives any rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise  increased; (b) any and all disputes, claims, or causes of action arising  out of or connected with this Sweepstakes, or any prize awarded, shall  be resolved individually, through binding arbitration as set forth  above, without resort to any form of class action; and (c) any and all  claims, judgments, and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket  costs incurred (if any), excluding attorneys’ fees and court costs. Some  jurisdictions do not allow the limitations or exclusion of liability,  so the above may not apply to every entrant. Participation in the  Sweepstakes constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to,  and acceptance of these Official Rules. Winning a prize is contingent  upon entrant’s fulfillment of all requirements set forth herein.  


13.  COMPLIANCE WITH LAW AND GOVERNING LAW. All issues and questions  concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability  of the Sweepstakes Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of  entrant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be  governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of  Texas, U.S.A., without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules  thereof, and any matters or proceedings which are not subject to  arbitration as set forth in Section 11 of these Official Rules and/or  for entering any judgment on an arbitration award, shall take place in  the State of Texas, in the City of San Antonio.
