The potential prize Winners must respond to Sponsor within seven (7) calendar days and provide Sponsor with his/her complete street address (P.O.Boxes are not allowed).
Each potential Prize Winner may, in the discretion of Sponsor, be required to complete, sign, have notarized (if applicable), and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (unless prohibited by law) (collectively, "Prize Winner Documents")within the time frame specified and in the form provided by Sponsor, without revision, or Prize may be forfeited. The Prize Winner Documents, if applicable, must be received by Sponsor within seven (7) days of the date they are sent to the potential Prize Winner (or other time frame as stated on the Prize Winner Documents), or Prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If any Prize, Prize notification, or other Sweepstakes-related communication is rejected, faulty, or returned as undeliverable, or if a selected potential Prize Winner cannot be reached or does not respond as instructed after Sponsor has attempted to notify that potential winner, that selected winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected (time permitting and in Sponsor’s sole discretion). Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential Prize Winner. The Prize claim and Prize Winner Documents are subject to verification by Sponsor. The Prizes, if legitimately claimed, will be awarded. Sponsor will not be obligated to pursue more than three (3) alternate winners (time permitting) for any Prize for any reason, in which case the Prize may go unawarded.
Prizes will only be mailed to the Prize Winners’ address in one (1) of the fifty (50) United States or D.C. Please allow approximately 6-8 weeks for shipment. If Sponsor determines, at any time and in their sole discretion, that a potential Prize Winner is ineligible, disqualified, or not in compliance with these Official Rules, or if the Prize Winner declines to accept the Prize, the Prize may be forfeited, the potential Prize Winner disqualified, and, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, the Prize may be awarded to an alternate potential Prize Winner selected from a pool of eligible Entrants, even if the disqualified Prize Winner or potential Prize Winner's name may have been show nor announced.
The right to receive a Prize is non-assignable, non-transferable and no Prize substitution, exchange or cash equivalent will be allowed, except by Sponsor who reserves the right to substitute Prize of equal or greater value for any reason, including in case of unavailability of Prize or force majeure. Federal, state and local taxes, and all other costs and expenses associated with Prize acceptance or use and not specified in these Official Rules as being part of a Prize, if any, are the sole responsibility of Prize Winner of any Prize. Sponsor shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding any prizes for any reason. Prizes will only be awarded to verified Prize Winners. All prize details not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If a Prize Winner does not accept or use the entire prize, the unaccepted or unused part of the prize will be forfeited and the Released Parties will have no further obligation with respect to that Prize or portion thereof. There leased Parties will not replace any lost, mutilated or stolen Prizes or Prize elements or any Prize or Prize elements that are undeliverable or do not reach Prize Winner because of an incorrect or changed address or other contact information.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMERS AND RELEASES; NO WARRANTY: In no event will more Prizes be awarded than are stated in these Official Rules. In the event that, due to technical, typographical, mechanical or other errors, there are more potential Prize Winners than are stated in these Official Rules, a random drawing among the claimants will be held to determine the Prize Winners. If, for any reason, an entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed, corrupted, or for any other reason not accepted as an entry into the Sweepstakes, the Entrant’s sole remedy is to submit another eligible and complete entry into the Sweepstakes. If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, or if any causes beyond the reasonable control of Sponsor corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right, at their sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes and/or proceed with the Sweepstakes, including the selection of Prize Winners, in a manner they deem fair and reasonable, including the selection of winners from among eligible on-suspect entries received prior to such cancellation, termination, modification or suspension. Released Parties shall not be responsible or liable for entries that are entered by other than human means (such as by an automated computer program or any non-human mechanism, entity, or device), in excess of the stated limit, or for entries that are late, forged, destroyed, lost, misplaced, stolen, misdirected, tampered with, incomplete, deleted, damaged, garbled, or otherwise not in compliance with the Official Rules, and all such entries will be disqualified. Released Parties are not responsible for any changes or unavailability of any e-mail account that may interfere with the Sweepstakes or ability of entrant to timely enter, receive notices or communicate with Sponsor, in which case Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may terminate or modify the Sweepstakes.
