Sweepstakes Winners are subject to confirmation and verification by Sponsor, by whatever means Sponsor shall deem appropriate. To be confirmed and verified as eligible to win, a Sweepstakes Winner must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and fulfill all requirements. Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all matters related to the administration, operation, drawing, verification of the Winner. In addition to all of the other requirements stated in these Official Rules, if the Sweepstakes Winner is a Canadian resident, (s)he must correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question to be eligible to be confirmed the Winner. If a prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to a potential winner, if potential winners cannot be reached within three (3) calendar days from the first notification attempt, or if a potential recipient is not in compliance with these Official Rules, then such person shall be disqualified and an alternate winner may be drawn.

Factors that could result in disqualification include, without limitation: having been convicted of a felony, being delinquent on a government-ordered payment, such as child support, spousal support, alimony, tax payments, etc., or any other criminal or civil offense determined at the sole discretion of Sponsor. When requested, Sweepstakes Winner must provide authorization and/or complete any forms reasonably needed to facilitate such a background check. If Sweepstakes Winner fails to sign and return the required documentation within the period specified by Sponsor, Sweepstakes Winner may be disqualified and will forfeit any claim to any of the Prizes(s).

That Include Winning an Automobile: For Sweepstakes that involve an automobile as the stated prize (“Prize Auto”), Winner must have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance to take delivery of the Prize Auto and must take delivery of the Prize Auto at a location specified by Sponsor, in its sole discretion. For any Prize Auto, neither Sponsor nor the vehicle manufacturer has made nor is responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact, or law, relative to the Prize Auto, including but not limited to its quality, mechanical condition or fitness. Notwithstanding, in certain cases, the Prize Auto may include the manufacturer’s standard vehicle limited warranty, as stated in the vehicle’s Owner’s Guide. A Prize Auto may be subject to availability restrictions in certain jurisdictions based on licensing, import, or other distribution restrictions.

Sponsor reserves the right to delay vehicle delivery or substitute a similar vehicle of equal or greater value should the vehicle as described be unavailable for any reason.
From time-to-time, the Sponsor may conduct Sweepstakes where the grand prize may be a large non-cash prize (e.g., the Prize Auto discussed immediately above). In such cases, the Sweepstakes Winner may elect to substitute the grand prize for an alternate cash prize option, which will be in the specific rules for such Sweepstakes promotions. Otherwise, no substitution of the prize or transfer of a prize will be permitted. All Prize winners are solely responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes and/or any other fees/costs associated with the prize or receipt of the prize.

This form will need to be provided to the Sponsor before a Prize winner can receive any additional prizes. If this form is not provided within 7 days of prize notification the prize may be forfeited and an alternate winner selected.
