The potential winner will be notified by e-mail (sent to the e-mail address provided by the entrant when entering). If a potential winner does not reply within 72 hours of the initial notification attempt, then the potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may, at Sponsor’s discretion, be selected from among the remaining eligible entries and notified in accordance with the procedure specified in these Official Rules (in which case the foregoing response requirements will apply to such newly-selected entrant). The potential winner will be required to complete, sign and return to Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability (including, if legally permissible, a publicity release), an IRS form W-9 and any other documentation provided by Sponsor in connection with verification of the potential winner’s eligibility and confirmation of the releases and grant of rights set forth in these Official Rules, within ten days of attempted delivery of same.

The potential winner may also in Sponsor’s discretion be required to complete and return to Sponsor an IRS Form W-9 within 10 days of attempted delivery of same. If a potential winner fails to return fully completed any required Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability, Liability/Publicity Release or other required Sweepstakes documentation within 10 days of attempted delivery of same, or if any attempted notification or prize delivery is returned as un-deliverable, or if a potential winner does not otherwise comply with these Official Rules and/or cannot accept the prize as awarded for any reason, then the potential winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may, at Sponsor’s discretion, be selected from among the remaining eligible entries in accordance with the procedure specified in these Official Rules (in which case the foregoing procedures will apply to such newly-selected entrant).
