The above chart is for summary purposes only. For complete details, check the "How to Play" instructions on the Website/App ("Game Instructions"), which are made a part of these Official Rules and incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between these Official Rules and the Game Instructions, these Official Rules will prevail, govern and control with the sole exception of the award of points for the completion of predictions/answers; with regard to the award of points for the completion of predictions/answers only, the Game Instructions will prevail, govern and control.

The Website/App form will indicate if your predictions have been saved. You may return and modify your predictions/answers as many times as you wish before the applicable end date/time (see chart in Section 4), except for the Season Long Predictions, which must be submitted by 1/16/17 at 4:59 p.m. PT. The version of your predictions/answers on the Website/App at the end of the applicable Weekly Game Period (and for the Season Long Predictions, at 4:59 p.m. PT on 1/16/17), per the chart above, as per Sponsor's records, will be considered your predictions for potential points/entries during that Sweepstakes Game Period.

Limit one (1) account per person/ABC.COM/ESPN.COM ID throughout the promotion Period. EACH ENTRANT MAY SUBMIT ONE (1) SET OF PREDICTIONS/ANSWERS PER SWEEPSTAKES GAME PERIOD, REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OF ACCOUNTS HE/SHE MAY HAVE. Multiple entries in excess of this limitation or mass entry attempts will result in disqualification of all entries by such person. Entries must be manually key-stroked; use of automated entry devices or programs is prohibited.

Sponsor will not be responsible for late, lost, incomplete, garbled or misdirected entries. All predictions/answers must be received by 4:59 p.m. PT on the day when each applicable Sweepstakes Game Period(s) end(s), except for the Season Long Predictions, which must be submitted by 4:59 p.m. PT on 1/16/17. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. By entering this Sweepstakes, participants agree to these Official Rules and the decisions of the judges and Sponsor, which are binding and final in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.

ABOUT POINTS: Sponsor or its designees shall determine in their sole discretion whether an entrant submitted one or more correct Season Long Predictions, as well whether an entrant correctly answered the Weekly Trivia/Bonus questions (as applicable) so as to receive points (and, if so, the number of points to be awarded based on number of correct predictions/answers); such decisions are final and binding in all respects and not subject to appeal. Points are usable only by Sponsor and Administrator for internal purposes of conducting the random drawings as set forth in these Official Rules and participants have no ownership or property rights in points. Without limiting the foregoing, any attempt by a participant to sell, purchase, and trade or exchange points is void. Such actions (as well as any other action which seeks to defraud Sponsor or Administrator in conjunction with the acquisition or use of points) will result in points not being honored and disqualification from the Promotion.

7. LEADERBOARD/GROUPS: The Leaderboard and groups are for entertainment purposes only. Joining a group(s) (private or public) is optional; you may join as many groups as you'd like to compare your points/predictions with other Members. If you choose to join a group(s), once your picks are locked, they will be applied across all your groups. For the avoidance of doubt, joining a group(s) has no effect on your chance of winning a prize. Per Section 8 below, Winner(s) are selected by random drawings. The Leaderboard posted on the Website/App is intended to reflect the point values of players (for a given week and/or cumulatively over the course of the Promotion Period). The Leaderboard may take up to twelve (12) hours to accurately reflect all activities completed. Sponsor/Administrator will endeavor to maintain and accurately reflect the number of points that participants have earned (both overall and for specific Weekly Game Periods). However, Sponsor and its agencies (including Administrator) shall not be responsible for technical errors of any kind which may cause inaccurate or incomplete information to be reflected at any given time. Sponsor/Administrator may update the Leaderboard (including a given participant's point total) at time(s) of their sole choosing and Sponsor/Administrator may correct erroneous listings on the Leaderboard (including a given participant's point total) at any time in their sole discretion without liability or notice of any kind. Notwithstanding listings on the Leaderboard, a person will not be the potential Grand Prize winner unless and until he/she is notified personally by Sponsor or Administrator to such effect (see Section 8 below). Participants should maintain their own records of their participation in the Promotion.

8. WINNER SELECTION/VALIDATIONS/NOTIFICATION AND ODDS: Potential winner for each Sweepstakes Game Period will be chosen in a random drawing, on or about three (3) business days following the conclusion of the applicable Sweepstakes Game Period (per the chart in Section 4 above). Administrator will randomly draw one (1) potential winner from among all eligible entries received for each Sweepstakes Game Period.

During the Promotion Period, each point accumulated by an entrant will result in one (1) entry into the applicable Sweepstakes Game Period. Each point obtained by an entrant during a Weekly Game Period will result in an entry into both that Weekly Game Period drawing and the Grand Prize drawing at the end of the Promotion Period. For the avoidance of doubt, non-winning entries from a given Weekly Game Period will not be carried over into the following Weekly Game Period. Sponsor and/or Administrator will determine, in its/their sole discretion, which entries are deemed eligible entries, and their decisions and the results of the drawings will be final in all respects.

Tabulation of entrants' correct predictions to be conducted by ESPN. Random drawing for the Grand and Weekly Prize(s) to be conducted by Administrator, the Sweepstakes' official judging organization, whose decisions are final and binding on all aspects of the Sweepstakes.

Potential winners will be notified by email on or about three (3) business days following the conclusion of the applicable Sweepstakes Game Period. With regard to any prize, failure to respond via email to the initial verification e-mail within three (3) business days after notification, or return of e-mail notification as undeliverable after three (3) attempts may result in forfeiture of winner status and any prize, at Sponsor's sole discretion. Grand Prize winner and Weekly Game Period Prize winner may be required to sign and return, within five (5) business days of transmission, an Affidavit of Eligibility, Release and Indemnification, and where allowed by law, a Publicity Release (as applicable) (collectively, "Winner Documents").

All potential winners are subject to verification of eligibility before a prize is awarded and Weekly Game Period Prize winners will need to provide their complete mailing address (including city, state and zip code), phone number and verified date of birth to claim their prize. In the event of any dispute concerning the identity of an online entrant, the entry will be deemed submitted by the natural person who is the authorized holder of the transmitting e-mail account. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. If for any reason, a prize is not claimed or a winner is disqualified, the corresponding prize will be awarded to an alternate winner (time permitting).

Odds of winning a prize depend on the total amount of entries/points received by entrant as compared to other eligible entrants in the applicable Sweepstakes Game Period

Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for failed, partial or garbled computer transmissions, or for technical failures of any kind, including but not limited to electronic malfunction or damage of any network, hardware or software.

Without limiting the foregoing, if The Bachelor broadcast(s) is interrupted or postponed from its original broadcast date or time due to preemption, natural cataclysm, state of emergency, or any other force majeure event (such that the broadcast cannot be shown in its entirety as originally intended by Sponsor), Sponsor reserves the right to modify or suspend the timing, entry deadline and prize award schedule of the Sweepstakes such that they will correspond to the scheduled new broadcast (or re-broadcast, if applicable) date of The Bachelor (and, in such event, notice will be posted on the Website/App). Sponsor also reserves the right to award prizes listed in these Official Rules via other means determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion that are to be fair, appropriate and consistent with the spirit of these Official Rules.

11. DISPUTES; ARBITRATION/CHOICE OF LAW: Except where prohibited, entrants agree that: (a) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Sweepstakes, or the awarding of prizes/determination of prize winners, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by arbitration pursuant to the Rules of JAMS, then effective (notwithstanding the foregoing, entrant shall not be precluded from seeking relief in small claims court for disputes/claims within the scope of the jurisdiction of small claims court and any remedies available to entrant under applicable federal, state or local law remain available to entrant and are not waived pursuant to this section); (b) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Sweepstakes but in no event attorneys' fees; and (c) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for and entrant hereby waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased and any and all rights to injunctive relief.
