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 each potential
Weekly Entry Period winner from all eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Entry Period on
or around the dates listed in Section 3 above. Non-winning Weekly Entry Period entries will carry over
into subsequent Weekly Entry Period drawings. Administrator will randomly select the potential Grand
Prize winner from all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period on or around the date listed in
Section 3 above. The potential Grand Prize winner (or parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her
state of residence) will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and
where not prohibited a Publicity Release (“Declaration”) which must be received by Administrator, within
five (5) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim the prize. The potential
winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted,
fails to sign and return the Declaration or fails to provide any requested information within the required
time period (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential
winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by
random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held,
after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled within approximately 8-10 weeks after
the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
