The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules will otherwise remain in effect and will be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. If the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes, which may include, without limitation, not awarding any prizes or awarding the prizes from among eligible entries received before or after a modification or suspension. If any person supplies false information, obtains entries by fraudulent means or is otherwise determined to be in violation of these Official Rules in an attempt to obtain any prize, Sponsor may disqualify that person and seek damages from him or her and that person may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT TO DAMAGE ANY ONLINE SERVICE OR WEB SITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATIONS OF THE SWEEPSTAKES VIOLATES CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS.

You are supposed to get a certain number of entries for each right answer. When I logout every day I have one amount of entries but when I log back in the next time the number of entries have decreased by like 30, 40 or even 50 entires. Every day it goes down. I know in the beginning they had a problem with the calculation of the referral entries, but I don’t think the webiste is working properly and I can’t find who to contact. Can you help?
