It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to allocate any such giveaway among the participants in any multiple party entry.

9. The recipient of the donation ticket must claim the giveaway item within 30 days of the drawing. If the recipient does not claim the prize within 30 days of the drawing, the cash equivalent of the prize will be forfeited and proceeds will go to James Stratos.

Any and all disputes, claims, and controversies concerning this donation shall be submitted to and resolved by binding arbitration, to be conducted under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association and the Uniform Arbitration Act, 42 Pa. C.S.A. §7301, et seq. The decision of the arbitrator will be final and binding on all parties.

12. The safekeeping of the Donation Ticket stub is the purchaser’s sole responsibility. Any attempted transfer, purchase, sale or auction of Donation Ticket constitutes fraud by attempted seller and attempted buyer of Donation Ticket and renders the Donation Ticket void. Donation Tickets obtained from unauthorized sources are void. A Donation Ticket stub is void and will not be accepted if James Stratos determines in its sole discretion that stub has been tampered with, altered, counterfeited, forged or is otherwise irregular or invalid nor is James Stratos responsible for stubs that are lost, damaged, destroyed, stolen, incomplete or illegible; and, in all such cases, such stubs are void and James Stratos shall have no liability in conjunction with same.

In such event or if James Stratos otherwise has reason to believe that someone has tampered with a Donation Ticket (including stub) or the Donation generally or otherwise attempted to defraud James Stratos in any way, James Stratos will disqualify such person and may otherwise seek to protect its rights via all available legal remedies, including possible criminal prosecution. James Stratos further reserves the right to confiscate and retain any Donation Tickets suspected of being invalid. Should a printing, programming or other error result in multiple winning Donation Ticket stubs for any of the prizes, only one (1) of each Giveaway so affected will be awarded in a random drawing from among the holders of all such “winning” stubs for the affected Giveaway Prize.

James Stratos disclaims any liability for typographical, printing, production or other errors with Donation Tickets, with the understanding that James Stratos’s sole liability for a defective or irregular Raffle Ticket is replacement with another ticket (provided supplies last) or the refund of the purchase price of such Donation Ticket.
