ineligible to win a subsequent Weekly Sweepstakes.

 

5.                 
DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION. Administrator will conduct random drawings on or about each of the Weekly Drawing
Dates set forth in the chart above in order to select one (1) potential winner
for each Weekly Sweepstakes (each a “Potential Winner”, collectively the
“Potential Winners”). Each Weekly Sweepstakes Potential Winner will be
notified by email on or about seven (7) days following the corresponding Weekly
Drawing Date and must respond to the notification within seven (7) days or be
subject to disqualification and another Potential Winner will be selected from
the remaining eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes
Period, if time permits. Administrator will continue to select alternate
Potential Winners in the manner set forth above until all Prizes (as defined
below) have been awarded. If Sponsor and/or Administrator are unable to
determine and verify a Potential Winner after ten (10) alternate drawings or if
Administrator fails to receive sufficient number of entries for any given
Weekly Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize for such
Weekly Sweepstakes and end such Weekly Sweepstakes. Odds of winning depend
on the total number of eligible entries received during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes
Period.

 

6.                  
QUALIFICATION
OF WINNER.
Before a Potential Winner will be deemed an official winner (each a “Winner”,
collectively the “Winners”), he/she may be required to execute and
return an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release/Publicity Release
(except where prohibited) (collectively referenced herein as the “Affidavit/Release”) and any other
legal documents that Sponsor and/or Administrator may require, including, but
not limited to, a W-9 tax form, within three (3) days from the date Administrator
sends such documents to a Potential Winner or be subject to disqualification. Each
Potential Winner must be able to provide proof that such Potential Winner is eligible
to be deemed a Winner to Sponsor’s and Administrator’s satisfaction. If the
documents are not returned within that time, or Potential Winner or Winner is
found to be ineligible, or does not comply with the Official Rules, then he/she
will be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected in
accordance with the process as set forth in Section 5 above. A prize
notification being returned as undeliverable will result in disqualification of
such entry.

 

7.

a “SpongeBob SquarePants” Limited
Edition Summer Prize Pack composed one (1) of each of the following items: (i) SpongeBob Fiber Beach Towel, (ii) SpongeBob Water Bottle,

ARV and the actual value, if any, of any component of Prize will not be
awarded. Winner
may not transfer, give, barter, sell, substitute, or exchange the Prize for a
cash equivalent except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event that a

the remaining eligible entries submitted during the applicable Weekly Sweepstakes
Period, if time permits and in accordance with the selection process as set
forth in Section 5 above. NEITHER Sponsor
NOR ADMINISTRATOR shall have ANY liability for any personal injuries, death,
