Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the registrant or player. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: The Administrator will randomly select the potential Promotion winner and five (5) Second Prize winners from all eligible entries received during that applicable entry period, on or around the dates set forth in Section 3 above. The provisional winners will be notified by phone or email within 30 days from being selected.

If winner cannot or will not accept the prize as stated within 15 days of notification, the winner will forfeit the prize. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the applicable prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor may successively attempt to contact up to two (2) potential prize winners in accordance with such procedure, and if there is still no confirmed prize winner after such attempts have been made, if any, the applicable prize may go unawarded. Entrants are responsible for ensuring their spam filter does not screen out notifying emails. Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the end of the Entry Period, once winners are confirmed.
