administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winners are final and
binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Administrator will randomly select the potential

or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits his/her/their prize. Receiving a prize
is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential winner is
disqualified for any reason or forfeits the prize, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate
