Determination and awarding of prizes

On or around one week after the applicable Entry Period closes, OMPA will
select potential winners for the prize(s) described below based on all
eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. Potential
winners will be notified by email or telephone (in OMPA’s discretion). Any
prize not timely accepted by a winner will, in OMPA’s sole discretion, be
forfeited for future use by OMPA, returned to the prize donor, or awarded to
an alternate winner. If a prize notification e-mail or any prize is returned
to OMPA or its designated agent as undeliverable, that prize will be awarded
to an alternate winner. Prize packages will be awarded on an individual basis,
with no more than one prize package awarded to each entrant. All eligible
entries in a Member Drive sweepstakes will remain eligible for each prize in
the applicable sweepstakes unless drawn as a winner for another prize.

OMPA may, in its sole discretion, choose to substitute a prize of equal or
greater value in the event the offered prize is unavailable. Prizes are not
redeemable for cash, exchangeable or transferable. All taxes on prizes,
including but not limited to Federal, State, and local income and sales taxes,
are the responsibility of the winners.

General terms

If the sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not
limited to fraud, virus or other technical problem, OMPA may either: (a)
cancel or terminate the sweepstakes; (b) suspend the sweepstakes while it
investigates the impairment, then resume the promotion if the impairment is
resolved; or (c) award the prize at random from among the eligible entries
received up to the time of the impairment. OMPA may disqualify entrants if
OMPA believes any entrant has violated these Official Rules or acted in an
unsportsmanlike, deceptive or disruptive manner. Failure by OMPA to enforce
any term of these Official Rules does not constitute a waiver of that
provision. If the prize becomes unavailable or infeasible to award, or if any
sweepstakes is impaired or becomes impractical due to any event beyond the
control of OMPA, OMPA may modify, shorten, suspend or cancel the sweepstakes
without liability. OMPA reserves the right to exclude previous sweepstakes
winners from entering this or any future sweepstakes.

Release and indemnification

Participating in the sweepstakes is voluntary. Entry constitutes permission
for OMPA (except where prohibited by law) to use entrants’ and winners’ names,
hometowns and likenesses in connection with promoting OMPA without additional
compensation. By entering, all entrants agree to be bound by these Official
Rules and further agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless OMPA, its
licensees, affiliates, successors, funders and prize providers, and their
respective directors, officers and employees (“Released Parties”) from and
against all actions, causes of actions, and liability, including attorney’s
fees and costs, arising out of or relating to participation in the sweepstakes
and receipt and use or misuse of the prize awarded. Entrants acknowledge that
the Released Parties have made no warranty, representation or guarantee,
expressed or implied, relating to any prize. ALL PRIZES ARE PROVIDED AS-IS.

Choice of law

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 OMPA in connection with the contest, shall be
governed by the laws of the State of Oregon without regard to the conflicts of
law principles thereof.
