CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY A SWEEPSTAKES ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO TAMPER WITH OR OTHERWISE UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE SWEEPSTAKES MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS, AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, THE SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO COOPERATE IN THE PROSECUTION OF ANY SUCH INDIVIDUAL(S) AND TO PURSUE ALL REMEDIES TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. Failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of being executed as planned, or unauthorized intervention, fraud, action of any Entrant, technical failure or any other cause which, in the sole opinion of the Sponsor, corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity, or proper conduct of this Sweepstakes, the Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to disqualify any suspect entry or Entrant and to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes. In the event of any cancellation, termination, modification or suspension, notice of such action will be posted at OregonCollegeSavings.com, and the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, identify funding recipients from among all eligible, non-suspect submissions received as of the date of the termination, cancellation, modification or suspension.
DISPUTES: Entrants agree that: (a) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Entrant or any prize awarded shall be resolve individually, without resort to any form of class action. Venue and jurisdiction for any such claims or causes of action lie exclusively with the Circuit Court of Oregon for Marion County and Entrant hereby consents to the personal jurisdiction of such court; (b) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (c) under no circumstances will an Entrant be permitted to obtain an award for, and Entrant hereby waives all rights to claim, punitive, incidental, indirect and consequential damages and any other damages other than out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. 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 or Administrator in connection with the Sweepstakes shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Oregon, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflicts of law rules (whether of the State of Oregon or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Oregon.
