Sponsor will attempt to notify a potential winner on the date and time listed above for each Contest Period using the Direct Message (“DM”) feature of the Social Media Group after the end of the applicable Contest Period. Sponsor may, at its discretion, also attempt to contact a potential winner by any other contact means provided by the entrant. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or does not respond to Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of Sponsor’s initial notification, the potential winner may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
A potential winner must provide Sponsor the information required to file any necessary tax reporting forms, including but not limited to their Social Security number or tax ID for tax reporting purposes if Sponsor is required to file an IRS Form 1099 with the Internal Revenue Service for the value of a prize awarded and accepted. Except where prohibited, a potential winner also may be required to sign and return to Sponsor, within five (5) business days from the date when Sponsor’s initial notification was sent, a declaration of eligibility and liability/publicity release (“Declaration”) via email to the address specified in the Declaration in order to claim his or her prize. If the Declaration is returned as undeliverable or incomplete or a potential winner fails to complete, sign and return the applicable Declaration within the required time period, or the potential winner does not adhere to the Official Rules, including without limitation, the potential winner does not fulfill the eligibility requirements, the potential winner may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
In the event a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, or if a prize is unclaimed or not accepted, the prize will be forfeited. If forfeited for any reason, the potential winner will not receive any other prize substitution or compensation, and the prize will remain the property of Sponsor and will not be awarded, except as provided herein. Sponsor, at its sole discretion, may award the forfeited prize to an alternate potential winner. If the Sponsor decides to select an alternate potential winner for the prize, the alternate will be selected according to the method used to select the potential winner. An alternate potential winner will be contacted by Sponsor using the Direct Message (“DM”) feature of the Social Media Group after the end of the applicable Contest Period. Sponsor may, at its discretion, also attempt to contact the alternate potential winner by any other contact means provided by the alternate potential winner. If an alternate potential winner cannot be contacted or does not respond to Sponsor within forty-eight (48) hours of Sponsor’s initial notification, the alternate potential winner may be disqualified at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor retains the right to repeat this process until an alternate potential winner complies with the verification of eligibility requirements.
