reply or waive the notary requirement if required as the result of a force majeure event, such as the
COVID-19 pandemic. The potential winner may be subject to a background check before the Prize
is awarded. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify the potential winner based on the results of such
background check if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that awarding the Prize to any such
individual might reflect negatively on the Sponsor. If a potential 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 return an executed and notarized Affidavit within the fourteen (14) day
deadline as modified, the prize may be forfeited. If the prize is forfeited, the prize may be awarded to
an alternate winner, selected in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, 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.
Sponsor will attempt to notify a 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 Sweepstakes e-mail, including any
winner notification e-mail, to a spam or junk folder. The Prize is non-transferable and no prize
