If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, if notification or prize is returned as undeliverable, or if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that a potential winner is ineligible, an alternate entrant will be selected in their place from among remaining eligible entries. Unless prohibited by law, acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use the winner’s name, picture, likeness, city and state, and comments about the Promotion, Sponsor, or prize, for advertising and publicity purposes, worldwide, without further notice or compensation.
Sponsor is not responsible for any delay or failure to receive notification or other Promotion-related communications for any reason, including inactive email account(s), technical difficulties associated therewith, or a potential winners or winner’s failure to adequately monitor any email account.
