background check. Such background check may include (but is not limited to) investigation of
criminal, sexual offenses, or other arrest or conviction record, and any other factor deemed
relevant by the Sponsor to help ensure that the potential winner will not bring the Sponsor into
public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Sponsor. If
requested, the potential winner agrees to sign waiver forms authorizing the release of personal
and background information. In the event of noncompliance, to be determined at the sole
discretion of Sponsor, prize will be forfeited and will be awarded to an alternate winner.

voice, biographical information and/or likeness for purposes of advertising and promotion
without further compensation in all media now known or hereafter discovered worldwide and on
the Internet without notice or review or approval as permitted by law.
