Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify and seek damages from any individual who tampers with the operation of the promotion, violates the Official Rules, or acts in a disruptive manner. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of the Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
