AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE, EVEN IF THE SWEEPSTAKES

__rendered_path__25

SHOULD SO INDICATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY AND

__rendered_path__23

COMPLIANCE WITH THE OFFICIAL RULES HAVE BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT

__rendered_path__31

HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. The potential winners will

__rendered_path__31

be notified by either e-mail or phone using the contact information provided during registration.

__rendered_path__31

All potential winners may be subject to verification of eligibility, and may be required to sign and

__rendered_path__23

return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Prize Acceptance Form (“Release”) within a

__rendered_path__24

certain time period after notification. If a potential winner cannot be reached (regardless of reason),

__rendered_path__23

does not respond within the designated time (if required), there is a return of any Prize/Prize

__rendered_path__25

notification as undeliverable, or fails to provide the Release within the requested time period,

__rendered_path__23

he/she may be disqualified and an alternate potential winner may be selected. Upon

__rendered_path__31

disqualification, no further compensation will be given. Failure to comply with any term or

__rendered_path__31

condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the

__rendered_path__31

event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate potential winner may be

__rendered_path__23

selected in a random drawing from the remaining eligible entries. Sponsor, in its sole discretion,

__rendered_path__24

may limit the number of attempts to award a Prize to two (2) attempts. In such case, if a Prize

__rendered_path__23

winner cannot be confirmed after two (2) attempts, the Prize will remain un-awarded. Odds of

__rendered_path__25

winning will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received.
