- WINNER SELECTION
The Prize Winners will be determined by a random drawing from amongst all eligible Entries per Prize received during the Sweeps Period which will occur at the headquarters of the Sweepstakes Sponsor. The Selected Entrants will be contacted by the Sweepstakes Sponsor via the email address provided during registration for the Sweepstakes. If a Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond to the Sweepstakes Sponsor’s email within forty-eight (48) hours of the first point of contact (or attempt) by the Sweepstakes Sponsor, he/she will be considered to have forfeited his/her respective Prize and will be disqualified and another Entrant may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with each Selected Entrant, there are no more eligible Entries, or there is insufficient time to award a Prize, whichever comes first. The Sweepstakes Sponsor will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact any Selected Entrant. No telephone contact or other correspondence in association with the Sweepstakes will be entered into except with each Selected Entrant.
- CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE
Upon successful contact with a Selected Entrant, that Selected Entrant will be required to provide certain contact information, as requested by the Sweepstakes Sponsor (e.g., full name, age, telephone number, email address). To be declared a Prize Winner, each Selected Entrant will also be required to sign an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability Release and Publicity Release (except where prohibited by law) (the “Release Form”) confirming compliance with the Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, without substitution, granting rights in the Entry, and releasing the Released Parties from any liability in connection with the Prize or the Sweepstakes before being granted his/her Prize.
If a Selected Entrant does not meet all of the Sweepstakes requirements, refuses to provide the contact information requested by the Sweepstakes Sponsor or does not sign and return the Release Form to the Sweepstakes Sponsor within the time frame specified, that Selected Entrant will forfeit his/her Prize and the Sweepstakes Sponsor shall be entitled (but not obligated) to select another Entrant from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with an Entrant or there are no more eligible Entries, whichever comes first. This process may continue until each Prize has been awarded or there is insufficient time to permit the awarding of a Prize. The Sweepstakes Sponsor is not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact any Selected Entrant.
The Sweepstakes Sponsor will contact each Winner following receipt of his/her signed Release Form to arrange for delivery of his/her Prize.
