Notwithstanding anything that may be communicated by any Nutter employee in connection with any such inquiry, the sole determining source for information related to a particular Contest will be the rules for such particular Contest, and any information communicated by Nutter employee(s) will neither be binding on the Nutter nor be deemed to be providing any type of improper assistance or advantage to any particular Entrant over another. Any attempt by Nutter to respond to an inquiry will be in the context of providing good customer service only and, in some instances, to address technical issues/problems.
