Entries that are lost, late, misdirected, garbled, incoherent, or incompletely received for any reason, including hardware, software, browser, or network failure, malfunction, congestion, or incompatibility at the Web site or elsewhere, are not the responsibility of Leite’s Culinaria and will not be eligible. Leite’s Culinaria reserves the right to disqualify any person in violation of any of the rules. Leite’s Culinaria reserves the right to disqualify and delete any caption from the contest due to perceived inappropriateness.
