The Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor and independent judges are final and binding in all respects. All applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations apply. The Contest is void wherever prohibited or restricted by any mandatory national, state or other government laws in form and language as provided herein and is subject to all applicable mandatory federal (national), state and local laws.
