Failure to return a signed affidavit and release of liability prior to accepting delivery of the prize may result in forfeiture of the prize, except where prohibited by applicable law. Proof of sending will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor or Administrator. If for any reason a potential winner cannot be reached after a reasonable attempt has been made, or does not return a signed affidavit and release, the prize will be awarded to an alternate winner, selected by random drawing from among remaining Entries. The prize will be sent to the address provided by Entrant on his or her completed Entry, unless a different address has been provided in writing by Entrant to Administrator or Sponsor. Allow up to eight (8) weeks for delivery. Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s or Administrator’s sole discretion. Potential winner(s) may waive their right to receive a prize, in which case an alternate winner will be selected in the manner described above. The reporting and payment of any taxes on prizes are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). Any applicable forms will be filed with the appropriate taxing authority.
