      ǂUsed for reference purposes only. No endorsement, sponsorship or authorization is intended or implied by such use.

    4. Limitations on Passaporto Entry. Persons may participate in the Sweepstakes by using either the paper Passaporto OR the Passaporto app, but NOT both. Maximum of one Passaporto per person; maximum of one "stamp" per period (per Passaporto). Any qualifying order of a meal that is reflected on a bill will result in issuance of a "stamp" provided that the bill is paid by at least one dining customer. If one or more dining customers attempt to pay a bill including a qualifying meal order by use of a payment method which is later rejected for any reason (i.e., credit or debit card), Sponsor will rescind the "stamp" issued for each meal order included on such bill from all dining customers (whether or not the dining customer attempted to settle the bill) and will not have liability of any kind in conjunction therewith. Server's decision as to whether a meal order qualifies for a "stamp" is final and binding and not subject to appeal. The issuance of an award by Sponsor in conjunction with a meal order shall not constitute any representation as to the eligibility of such meal order for receipt of a "stamp". If a dining customer fails to present Passaporto to server for any reason after completion of the meal as per Rule 2b above, Sponsor reserves the right not to provide a "stamp" at a later time even if the dining customer presents proof of a meal order (e.g., the bill) and Passaporto prior to applicable period deadline. To be credited for a given meal order, a Passaporto must in all cases be "stamped" prior to the end of the applicable period. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a person entering the Sweepstakes by use of the Passaporto app, the entry will be deemed submitted by the registered owner of the mobile device on which the Passaporto app is installed, with such determination being made by Sponsor in its sole discretion.
