To the greatest extent permitted by applicable law, Atmel reserves the right, without prior notice and at any time, to terminate the Sweepstakes, in whole or in part; modify the Sweepstakes in any way; substitute another prize of equivalent or greater monetary value for the Prizes; or disqualify any entry for any reason, without notice to the entrant.

The winners are responsible for all applicable taxes and other fees due by virtue of their receipt of the Prizes.

If Atmel does so, any winner's failure to complete these steps within that ten-day period will result in the winner's disqualification and the selection of another winner from eligible entries within a commercially reasonable period after the expiration of the initial ten-day period. Atmel is not responsible for and will not be liable for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the winners.
