Participation and prize award are subject to verification and/or determination of all entrants, and any other information required by the Administrator in order to verify a winner.
DRAWING/ODDS: There will be one (1) random drawing resulting in one (1) winner. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. On or about March 29, 2019, a potential winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible entries during the Sweepstakes Period. A total of one (1) winner will be selected. The random drawing will be conducted by the Administrator whose decision is final on all matters relating to the drawing.

In the event of noncompliance, if an entrant is or becomes noncompliant or ineligible or is otherwise disqualified for any reason during or after the Sweepstakes Period, or if a potential winner fails to respond to the email or other notification within the time specified, or if a potential winner fails to complete and return the prize fulfillment form, or a potential winner’s prize fulfillment form is not received for any reasons, or a potential winner declines the prize, or cannot be reached using the contact information from the entry form, the Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period.

The Sponsor and Administrator are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen or misdirected entries; or other errors or malfunctions of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic, or otherwise. The Administrator’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Warning: Any attempt by an entrant or any other individual to deliberately damage any web site associated with this Sweepstakes or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor and Administrator reserve the right to prosecute and seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Sponsor and Administrator reserve the right at their sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be attempting to tamper with or undermine the entry process, the website, and/or the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes; to violate the Official Rules; or to act in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner or with the intent to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass any other person. If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, the Administrator may, in its sole discretion, void any suspect entries and (a) modify the Sweepstakes or suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the Prize from among the eligible, non-suspect entries received for the Sweepstakes Period up to the time of the impairment.
Any suspected attempt by any entrant, directly or indirectly, to cheat, engage in fraud, to obtain unauthentic or fraudulent entries, ineligible or inaccurate or untimely submissions, as determined in the Administrator’s sole and absolute discretion, will void all such entries, and disqualify any entrant suspected of using/benefitting from such methods. Without limiting the foregoing, the Administrator has the right to verify entrants’ eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and, on the basis of its investigation, disqualify any entrant at any time during or after the Sweepstakes Period, and require immediate Prize return, if applicable. The Sponsor and Administrator assume no responsibility for lost, late, incomplete, inaccurate, delayed, destroyed, damaged, illegible, or misdirected entries (in whole or in part), and/or non-compliance.
