Notice/Verification of Potential Winners and Delivery of Prizes 

All eligible entries will be contacted for their mailing information by the way their entry was submitted. If the notification is returned as undeliverable, or Sponsor receives no response within 24 hours, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected at random from among all remaining eligible Entries at the Sponsor's discretion. We are not responsible for (i) the failure of a potential winner to receive our Facebook message for any reason, or for the inability of such potential winner to return our message for any reason; (ii) failed, returned or misdirected notifications or emails due to inaccurate information provided by a participant, (iii) submissions and responses to winner notifications which are lost, late, incomplete, illegible, unintelligible, misdirected, damaged or otherwise not received, in whole or in part, by Sponsor.

We reserve the right to require the potential winners to show proof of identity prior to receiving the prize. In addition, a potential winner may be required to complete an Affidavit of Eligibility and Release, and such other documents as we may reasonably require, and return these documents within 2 business days of delivery. If these documents are returned as undeliverable or are not completed and returned by such deadline or if a potential winner does not meet the eligibility or other requirements of the Sweepstakes, the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected at random from among all remaining eligible entries at our sole discretion.

Once the winner has returned the documents for our review and acceptance, the Sponsor will follow up within seven (7) days via phone & e-mail with additional Prize details.
