Without limitation, Entries will be disqualified if Sponsor considers for any reason an Entry, or any element thereof, not to be in the spirit of the Promotion, ineligible or otherwise not compliant herewith, or granting a prize to any entrant will have a detrimental impact on Sponsor, this Promotion, any of Sponsor’s brands, products or services.

Sponsor will make up to two (2) attempts over the 48-hour period following the winner’s selection to contact the potential winner via the email address provided on their entry form. If the potential winner cannot be reached during the 48-hour period in which they are contacted, such potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected from among the remaining applicable eligible entries received, if time permits (at Sponsor’s sole discretion). The return of a potential winner's notification, prize information, or the prize as undeliverable or rejection of the prize by the potential winner will result in disqualification of the potential winner and an alternate potential winner may be selected. The Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of any alternate potential winners, if any. In the event of a dispute about the identity of an entrant, each entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address provided at entry. The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet Service Provider, online access provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
