Entry in the Sweepstakes does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes.
AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES. Participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these Official Rules and the decisions of LBS Financial, which are final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.
ODDS. The actual odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
PRIZE DRAWINGS. Potential winner will be selected in a random drawing by a LBS Financial representative on or about the Winner Selection Date from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. Winner will be notified via phone, email or other method. The potential winner must contact Sponsor as provided in that message. LBS Financial will make its best reasonable effort to contact all winners. If any potential prize winner does not respond to prize notification attempts within two (2) days of the first notification attempt, is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the applicable prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential prize winners in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed prize winner after such attempts have been made, if any, the applicable prize may go unawarded.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS. Exact prize components are subject to change without notice. No substitution of prize will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute prize of comparable value if any prize listed is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. Prize will be awarded only if the potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable and non-transferable. Any prize pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Sweepstakes materials are for illustrative purposes only. All details and other restrictions of the prize(s) not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Each potential winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and where imposing such condition is legal, a Publicity Release (collectively, the “Prize Claim Documents”). If any potential winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within two (2) days of prize notification (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. In no event will more than the stated number of prizes be awarded. LBS Financial reserves the right to void or reverse the awarding of any prizes obtained fraudulently or illegally and to seek appropriate remedies to recover any prizes. ALL PRIZES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures, or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are received and/or Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic of health of other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend, or terminate the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. Unless otherwise state in these Official Rules, the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. Unless otherwise stated in these Official Rules, in the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.

ARBITRATION PROVISION: Unless you are an active duty member of the armed forces or are on active Guard or Reserve duty, or your account otherwise falls under the protections of the MLA or is otherwise exempt from arbitration under federal law, you agree that any and all claims arising from or relating to this Agreement or any service provided by LBS Financial to you shall be subject to binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). This includes claims based on contract, tort, equity, statute, or otherwise, as well as claims regarding the scope and enforceability of this provision. It includes all claims by or against you, co-members, co-borrowers, LBS Financial, and others providing or receiving any product or service related to this Agreement or your account with LBS Financial. However, at the election of any party, a court of competent jurisdiction may adjudicate any request for injunctive relief, but all other claims will first be decided by arbitration under this Agreement.
A single Arbitrator shall decide all claims and shall render a final, written decision. You may choose the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (“JAMS”), or other similar arbitration service provider acceptable to LBS Financial to administer the arbitration. Consistent with the FAA, the appropriate AAA rules, JAMS rules, or other service provider rules shall apply, as determined by the Arbitrator. For AAA and JAMS, these rules are found at www.adr.org and www.jamsadr.com.
Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the arbitration shall take place in Long Beach, California.
Each party to the arbitration shall pay his, her, or its own costs of arbitration. If you cannot afford your arbitration costs, you may apply for a waiver under the relevant rules.
The parties waive any right to bring representative claims on behalf of a class of individuals (the “class action waiver”).
The arbitration provision may be severed or modified if necessary to render it enforceable
