Without limiting any other provision in these Official Rules, Mode is not responsible or liable to any Entrant or Prize Winner or any person claiming through such Entrant or Prize Winner for failure to supply the prize or any part thereof in the event that any of the Prize Draw activities or Mode’s operations or activities are affected, as determined by Mode at its sole discretion, including, without limitation, by reason of any acts of God, any action, regulation, equipment failure, threatened terrorist acts, terrorist acts, air raid, blackout, act of public enemy, earthquake, war, fire, flood, epidemic, explosion, unusually severe weather, hurricane, embargo, labour dispute or strike labour or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, civil disturbance, insurrection, riot, or any law, rule, regulation, order or other action adopted or taken by any governmental, federal, state or local government authority, or any other cause, whether or not specifically mentioned above.

9.2 Mode reserves the right to hold void, suspend, cancel, or amend the Prize Draw where it becomes necessary to do so. Mode’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Mode’s decisions will be final in all matters relating to the Prize Draw.

9.3 Entrants waive any right to claim ambiguity in the Prize Draw or these Official Rules. If Mode determines at any time at its sole discretion that Entrant is disqualified, ineligible, or in violation of these Official Rules, or engaging in behaviour that Mode deems obnoxious, inappropriate, threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Mode reserves the right at its sole discretion to select an alternate winner.

Each potential Prize Winner may be required to provide Mode with proof that he or she is the authorized account holder. If a dispute cannot be resolved to Mode’s satisfaction, the Entry and individual(s) may be deemed ineligible at Mode’s sole discretion.
