HOW TO CLAIM A PRIZE:
After the random drawing, Sponsor will notify the potential winner via e-mail at the e-mail address provided at the time of registration. Each potential Instant Win Game winner will be directed to a redemption website and must complete and submit the requested information in order to claim his/her prize. All potential prize winners may be requested to provide additional documentation for verification purposes. If a potential Grand Prize winner or a potential Instant Winner is disqualified, found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, declines to accept a prize, or in the event that the potential winner fails to any requested documentation or an executed and notarized Affidavit within the ten (10) calendar day deadline (if applicable), the prize may be forfeited. If a prize is forfeited, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries (or non-winning Game Plays), as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. If, after a good-faith attempt, Sponsor is unable to award or deliver a prize, the prize may not be re-awarded. Prizes will be mailed to verified winners at the street address provided at the time of registration within approximately 6 to 8 weeks from the end of the Promotion. Each winner shall be solely responsible for payment of any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes for any prize won.
Sponsor will attempt to notify each potential winner as set forth above, but Sponsor is not responsible for any undelivered e-mails, including without limitation e-mails that are not received because of a winner’s privacy or spam filter settings which may divert any Promotion e-mail, including any winner notification e-mail, to a spam or junk folder. Prizes that are unclaimed, unredeemed, or returned as undeliverable will not be awarded. 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 a prize of equal or greater value in case of unavailability of a prize or force majeure, at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion. Promotion Entities shall not be held responsible for any delays in awarding the prize for any reason.
