5. Winner Selection and Notification. Within 10 days of the End Date, one (1) winner will be randomly selected by the Prize Provider from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period and notified by message sent to the email address included by the winner in the entry form.

6. Prizes and Prize Claim. One (1) winner will win the Prize identified on the Entry Page (the “Prize”), which will have the approximate retail value stated there.

Sponsor has neither made nor is responsible or liable for any warranty, representation, or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to the Prize, including but not limited to its quality, condition, or fitness for a particular purpose.

Odds of winning depend on number of entries received. Winner is subject to verification, including of age and residency. Limit one (1) Prize per winner. The Prize is non-transferable and no Prize substitution is permitted, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. If the Prize cannot be awarded for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute an alternative prize of comparable or greater value. The value of the Prize may be taxable as income to the winner, and the winner is solely responsible for any federal, state, local, or other applicable taxes associated with the acceptance and use of the Prize. All costs and expenses associated with Prize acceptance and use not specifically provided herein are the responsibility of the winner.

As a condition of receiving a Prize, the winner must sign and return any documents requested by Sponsor, including but not limited to, an affidavit of eligibility and publicity/liability release. Failure to sign and return any requested documents by the specified return date will result in disqualification of the winner and the forfeiture of that winner’s interest in the Prize (unless prohibited by law). The winner will be issued an IRS Form 1099 in the amount of the actual retail value of the Prize and must provide Sponsor with his/her valid Social Security Number or Taxpayer ID for tax reporting purposes.

Within one (1) week of notification regarding Prize winning, the winner must provide a valid mailing address and phone number to Sponsor, which Sponsor will share with Prize Provider to enable Prize Provider to coordinate shipping and mail the Prize to the winner. Prize Provider will pay the cost of mailing the Prize to the winner. The method of shipping and the carrier will be determined by Prize Provider. If the winner (i) is determined to be ineligible, (ii) fails to respond to the initial verification message within one (1) week of notification or after three (3) attempts (whichever occurs first), (iii) fails to provide a valid mailing address within one (1) week of receipt of notification regarding Prize winning, or (iv) fails to sign and return all requested documents by the specified return date, the winner forfeits the Prize in its entirety (unless prohibited by law) and an alternate winner will be selected based upon a random drawing of the other eligible entries received during the Entry Period. If Sponsor has selected three (3) potential winners pursuant to the procedure set forth above, and none completes the requirements herein, then the Giveaway will terminate, and no Prize will be given.
