5. Participant Selection

Promotion entries will only be accepted during the Promotion Period. The Promotion is comprised of 1 draw to be held at 4:00 p.m. ET, June 1, 2013. The winner will be notified via the submitted email address and will have five (5) business days from the date he/she is notified to redeem the prize in the manner set out in the notification e-mail. Failure to respond to the aforesaid e-mail notification within five (5) business days of notification will result in the Participant’s disqualification for that draw and the selection of an alternate winner. The odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries.

If the selected Participant cannot be contacted, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the selected Participant forfeits the prize and the initial selected Participant will have no further recourse against the Sponsor or any prize sponsoring businesses associated with this Promotion. In the event that a selected Participant is disqualified for any reason, the Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate Participant by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, and following the same steps as outlined above for the initial selected Participant. The Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Promotion and the selection of the Participant are final and binding in all matters related to each draw.


The selected Participant must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules and Regulations, and receipt of a prize is contingent upon the Participant fulfilling all requirements. The selected Participant may be required to provide the Sponsor with documentation that shows he/she was an eligible Participant over and above an affidavit of eligibility. In the event of a dispute as to the eligibility of any Participant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to participate will be deemed to be the Participant.
