Prize details and availability are subject to change and prize provider’s rules and restrictions, and in the event that Sponsor is unable to provide the winner with his or her prize(s), the Sponsor may elect to provide winners with the approximate value of such item in cash or award an alternate prize of comparable or greater value. In the event a prize winner engages in behavior that (as determined by Sponsor or any prize provider in its or their sole and absolute discretion) is obnoxious, inappropriate, or threatening, illegal or that is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, Sponsor reserves the right to refuse to award the prize to such individual. The prizes are awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied, including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose (other than any manufacturer warranty that accompanies each prize in the box) . Prize winners will be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and for any other fees or costs associated with the prize(s) they receive, regardless of whether the prize(s), in whole or in part, are used.

Such written notification will also state the deadline by which the Materials must be completed and returned to Administrator.  Entrants acknowledge that failing to complete and return eligibility Materials in compliance with the written instructions ON OR BEFORE THE DEADLINE DATE may result in disqualification and, in such case, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate potential winner, at Sponsor’s sole discretion.  ADDITIONAL RULES RELATED TO RESIDENTS OF CANADA: Potential Canadian Winners will be required to correctly answer a time limited mathematical skill testing question administered by mail or telephone prior to award of any prize.   In the event of non-compliance with these rules, or if the prize or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited and, at Administrator’s discretion, awarded to an alternate potential winner. If a prize is won by an eligible individual who is not of the legal age of majority in their state of residence (“minor”), the required documents must be confirmed and signed by minor’s parent or legal guardian, and the prize will be awarded in the name of the parent or legal guardian, who shall fulfill all requirements imposed on the winner set forth herein. If the prize or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, or if any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules, or if the potential prize winner declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner may be disqualified. In such case, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate potential winner, at Sponsor’s sole discretion.  If, for any reason, more bona fide winners come forward seeking to claim prizes in excess of the number of each type of prize set forth in these Official Rules, the winners, or remaining winners, as the case may be, of the advertised number of prizes available may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize(s). Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. The Sweepstakes Entities are not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, damaged, intercepted, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify the potential winners, or if potential winner is a minor, for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts of potential winner to provide signed parental or guardian consent.  10.
