SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION OF SELECTED ENTRANT
Each qualified entry will be entered into a random drawing by a representative of Sponsor from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. A drawing will be held on July 8rd, 2019 (the “Drawing Date”) to determine one potential winner (the “Selected Entrant”). The Selected Entrant will be notified by telephone or email in Sponsor’s discretion (“Notification”). The Selected Entrant will be required to respond (as directed) within twenty-four hours after attempted Notification. Selected Entrant’s failure to respond timely to the Notification may result in forfeiture of a prize, and in such case, Sponsor may randomly select an alternate Selected Entrant from among the remaining eligible entries, up to three times. The Selected Entrant may be sent a declaration of eligibility / liability / publicity release (“Release”). Except where prohibited by law, the Release will state that Selected Entrant agrees to allow Sponsor to use (without additional compensation) his or her name, address, photograph, testimonial, likeness and/or biographical information for purposes of advertising and promotion (including, without limitation, posting on Sponsor’s website(s) and affiliated website(s)). Selected Entrants may also be required to provide name, U.S. Social Security Number (for tax form purposes), birth date, current address, and phone number. Unless restricted by law, the Selected Entrant will be required to complete and return the Release within the time period specified therein. A prize may be forfeited, and in such case, an alternate Selected Entrant may be randomly selected from among the remaining eligible entries if the Selected Entrant (up to three times): (i) cannot be reached; (ii) does not respond to the Notification in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; (iii) fails to obtain all signatures on the Release and to return the documents in a timely manner as required pursuant to these Official Rules; or (iv) cannot accept or receive a prize for any reason. Non-compliance with these Official Rules may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate Selected Entrant. Assumed notification by caller ID and any subsequent returned calls do not constitute a winner. Sponsor may not make multiple attempts to contact Selected Entrants.
The first and last name, social media handle, hometown, state, name of business and company logo of Selected Entrants may be announced and posted on Sponsor’s and its affiliates’ online websites and social media pages (such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and may potentially be aired or streamed nationally, in Sponsor’s discretion.
