discretion of Promoter. The actual value of the Grand Prize may vary depending on
various factors, including the date(s) of the trip (the date of conclusion of the trip

other costs and expenses not listed above or otherwise communicated by Sponsor
shall be the winner’s responsibility, including any cancellation fees or penalties due
to the fault of the winner or its guest. The winner and their guest must have a valid
travel passport or other form of valid identification for international or domestic
travel, as the case may be, which does not expire on or before the Prize Receipt
date, as defined in this sub-section. The guest(s) (or his/her/their parent(s) or legal
guardian(s), if a minor) may be required to sign a liability/publicity release and a
confidentiality agreement. Winner and guest must travel together on the same
itinerary. Neither the winner for the winner’s guest will be given the opportunity to
change the duration of their stay in each location once booked, and tickets that are
a component of the Grand Prize are not eligible for miles accumulation and cannot
be upgraded using miles. The exact timing of the trip will depend upon a number
of factors to be determined on or around the time of Sweepstakes drawing date.
Sponsor will make reasonable efforts to accommodate winner’s booking requests
concerning timing for travel. Traveller information may be required to be provided
to Sponsor or Sponsor’s designee as necessary to facilitate the booking of travel
and accommodations in connection with the prize. If the Grand Prize (in whole or
in part) or any other prize-related activity(s) is canceled, postponed, or altered in
any way for any reason, the Grand Prize (or portion thereof) may, to the extent
feasible, be replaced with a prize of comparable or greater value as determined
solely by Sponsor, which may be similar or different from the Grand Prize. No
refund or compensation will be made in the event of a cancellation or delay in any
flight. Travel and hotel accommodation restrictions apply. Travel arrangements
must be made through a Sponsor-designated agent and on a carrier of Sponsor’s
choice. Tickets and hotel reservations awarded as part of the Grand Prize are not
transferable and may not be resold or offered for resale. Any such resale may result
in disqualification and prize forfeiture. Certain travel restrictions may apply. Travel
plans must be finalized and bookings must be confirmed within thirty days
following acceptance of the Grand Prize , and travel must take place within twelve
(12) months following Grand Prize acceptance, otherwise the Grand Prize may be
forfeited and no amounts, including any replacement or alternative prize, may be
due and owing to the winner.
The value of each of the Sweepstakes Prizes may be treated as income to the
applicable winner and thus the winner may be responsible for payment and
reporting of any applicable taxes. We encourage you to consult your tax
advisor to determine how winning a Prize may affect your tax obligations. Each
potential, selected winner must supply to Promoter or Merkle, as applicable, at the
time of (and as a part of) Sweepstakes Prize acceptance (in accordance with these
terms). Certain information necessary for fulfilment of the relevant Prize, to be used

potential winner to arrange for fulfillment of the Sweepstakes Prize are met with
no response, or the winner cannot or does not accept the Sweepstakes Prize

Sweepstakes Prize will be forfeited and the Promoter has the right to select an
alternate winner in a random drawing of the remaining eligible entries received
during the Entry Period.
Instant Win Prize: The odds of winning an Instant Win Game Prize depends on the time
in which a person plays the game and the number of Instant Win Game Prizes remining at
such time. Certain Instant Win Game prizes may be subject to additional terms and
conditions. Instant Win Prizes have no cash value.
