GENERAL ENTRY CONDITIONS
No purchase, entry fee, payment, or proof-of-purchase necessary to participate in the Promotion. By entering or otherwise participating in the Promotion, all entrants and other participants agree to abide by these Official Rules, which are final and binding on all matters pertaining to this Promotion. Any individual who attempts or otherwise encourages, directly or indirectly, the entry of multiple or false contact information under multiple identities, by phone numbers, cellular phone numbers, email or social media and establishing multiple accounts, may be disqualified from participation in this Promotion. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same mobile phone number. In the event of a dispute over the identity of any potential winner, the entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the mobile phone number submitted at the time of entry, and potential recipient of gift may be required to provide identification sufficient to show that he/she is the authorized account holder of such mobile phone number. The “authorized account holder” is deemed as the natural person assigned to a mobile phone number by a service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning mobile phone number associated with the submitted mobile phone. Otherwise, the "authorized account holder" of a wireless device is the natural person in whose name the device has been issued and the services are billed. Potential recipients may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. If more than one person is shown as a responsible party, then the first-named person will be deemed the authorized account holder unless the individuals on the account agree otherwise. Entries generated by script, macro, robotic or by any other automatic or mechanical means are void.
Gifts will be awarded as Coupons for this Promotion which will be given on a first to participate first served basis while supplies last.
No substitutions, cash equivalents, or transfer of gifts permitted except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a gift (or portion thereof) with one of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion. Gifts may not be sold, bartered or exchanged by any recipient.

By receipt of any gift, recipients agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies and its parent companies and officers, directors, employees, attorneys, and agents (collectively, the “Sponsor Entities”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Promotion or receipt, use, nonuse or misuse of any gift.
All entrants, as a condition of entry into the Promotion, agree to release all Sponsor Entities, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions, distributors, suppliers, printers, application developers, distributors and advertising, promotional or judging agencies from and against any and all liability, claims or actions of any kind whatsoever for injuries, damages, or losses to persons or property which may be sustained in connection with accessing the Promotion or Game; playing the Game; submitting an entry or otherwise participating in any aspect of the Promotion; the receipt, ownership or use of any gift received; preparing for, participating in or traveling to and/or from any gift-related activity, or any typographical or other error in these Official Rules or the announcement of offering of any gift. Each recipient shall bear all risk of loss or damage to his/her gift after it has been delivered. Sponsor makes no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the appearance, safety or performance of any gift.
Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Promotion, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures, human error or any other factor impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Promotion, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. In such event, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing for any or all of the prizes offered herein from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance to the extent reasonably possible and practical in light of the termination. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion 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 or any other provision.
LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
Sponsor Entities assume no responsibility or liability for (a) any incorrect or inaccurate entry information, or for any faulty, failed, garbled or jumbled electronic data transmissions; (b) any unauthorized access to, or theft, destruction or alteration of entries at any point in the operation of this Promotion; (c) any technical malfunction, failure, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or communications line failure, regardless of cause, with regard to any equipment, systems, networks, lines, satellites, servers, computers or providers utilized in any aspect of the operation of the Promotion; (d) inaccessibility or unavailability of the Internet or any combination thereof, or; (e) any injury or damage to participant’s or to any other person's electronic device which may be related to or resulting from any attempt to participate in the Promotion or download any materials relating to the Promotion. If, for any reason, the Promotion is not capable of running as planned for reasons which may include without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes which may corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Promotion, then Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Promotion in whole or in part.
You agree that whenever you have a disagreement with the Sponsor arising out of, connected to, or in any way related to the Promotion, the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s Mobile Terms and Conditions, you will send a written notice to the Sponsor (“Demand”). You agree that the requirements of this Dispute Resolution section will apply even to disagreements that may have arisen before you accepted these Official Rules or the Sponsor’s Mobile Terms and Conditions. You must send the Demand to the following address (the “Notice Address”): Legal Department, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., 1401 Wynkoop Street, Suite 500, Denver, CO 80202. You agree that you will not take any legal action, including filing a lawsuit or demanding arbitration, until 10 business days after you send a Demand. If the disagreement stated in the Demand is not resolved to your satisfaction within 10 business days after it is received, and you intend on taking legal action, you agree that you will file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association (the “Arbitrator”). This arbitration provision limits the ability of you and Sponsor to litigate claims in court and you and Sponsor each agree to waive your respective rights to a jury trial or a state or federal judge. You agree that you will not file any lawsuit against Sponsor in any state or federal court. You agree that if you do sue in state or federal court, and Sponsor brings a successful motion to compel arbitration, you must pay all fees and costs incurred by Sponsor in court, including reasonable attorney’s fees. For any such filing of a demand for arbitration, you must effect proper service under the rules of the Arbitrator and notice to the Notice Address may not be sufficient. If, for any reason, the American Arbitration Association is unable to conduct the arbitration, you may file your case with any national arbitration company. The Arbitrator shall apply the AAA Consumer-Related Disputes Supplementary Procedure effective September 15, 2005 (as may be amended) and as modified by the agreement to arbitrate in this Dispute Resolution section. You agree that the Arbitrator will have sole and exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute you have with Sponsor. The Federal Arbitration Act allows for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and governs the interpretation and enforcement of the agreement to arbitrate.
You agree that you will not file a class action or collective action against Sponsor, and that you will not participate in a class action or collective action against them. You agree that you will not join your claims to those of any other person. Notwithstanding any other provision in the Official Rules, or the Sponsor’s Mobile Terms and Conditions, if this class action waiver is invalidated, then the agreement to arbitrate is null and void, as though it were never entered into, and any arbitration dispute at that time will be dismissed without prejudice and may be refiled in a court. Under no circumstances do you or Sponsor agree to class or collective procedures in arbitration or the joinder of claims in arbitration. Sponsor agrees that it will submit all disputes with you to arbitration before the Arbitrator.
All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of the entrant, or Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, or any claim or dispute that has arisen or may arise between you and Sponsor, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Colorado without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules. And any action brought to enforce or interpret these Official Rules shall be brought in the appropriate courts in the City and County of Denver, Colorado.
These Official Rules will be available throughout the Promotion Period at: chipotle.com/guachunter-rules.
