12. Disqualification. The Contest Organizers reserve the right to disqualify a person or to cancel the entries of a person who participates or tries to participate by using methods that do not comply with these Contest Rules or that are unfair to other entrants (e.g. entries exceeding the authorized limit, violation of a third party’s rights). If the Contest Organizers have grounds to suspect any entrant or third party of cheating, deception or fraudulent or unsportsman-like conduct of any kind (including, without limitation, manipulating the promotion, choice of prize winner(s) or any entry) the Contest Organizers reserve the right (in their sole discretion) to disqualify any entrant, entry or person it reasonably believes to be responsible for, or associated with, such activity. Such a person may have to answer before the appropriate legal authorities.

For any other losses or damages of any kind that result from acceptance, possession or use of any prize or from entry or attempted entry into the contest, participants agree (by entering the contest) to release the released parties from any and all liability whatsoever unless the damage of the entrant is caused by gross negligence or wilful intent of a Released Party.

In an event of slight negligence, the released parties shall be liable only for breaches of a material contractual obligation (“Cardinal Duty”). A “Cardinal Duty” is an obligation whose fulfilment makes the implementation of this contest possible in the first place and on the fulfilment of which the participant may therefore generally rely. Liability in case of breaches of Cardinal Duties shall be limited to typical, foreseeable damages.

The Released Parties disclaim all liability for any of the following that may limit or prevent any entrant’s participation in the Contest: malfunctioning of any computer component, software or communications line; loss or lack of a communications network; or any transmission that is faulty, incomplete, incomprehensible or erased by any computer or network. The Released Parties also DISCLAIM all liability for any damages or loss that may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, by the downloading of any web page or software or by the transmission of any information related to participation in the Contest.
