Each prize winner agrees to fully cooperate with Sponsor in providing all necessary information to complete any tax reporting form that may be required by law.
Further, each prize winner will be obligated to complete an affidavit of eligibility (“Affidavit”), including a statement of his or her compliance with the eligibility and other requirements, agreement to be bound by these Sweepstakes Rules, and an agreement to allow Sponsor, and its affiliated entities, to use the potential winner’s name and other identifying information for promotional purposes to the extent allowable by law, and to use the winner’s name and state for identifying the Sweepstakes winners, within one week of notification of being selected as a potential winner.

The prize is not transferable or assignable.
5. Winner Selection and Prize Claiming
Ten (10) separate potential winners will be selected by random drawing, on or about the first business day that occurs after the 6th day of the month after the Entry Period. The potential winners will be contacted by phone or SMS text message, at the discretion of the Sponsor, and asked to confirm their eligibility, acceptance to be bound by these Sweepstakes rules, as well as to confirm their full legal name and a current mailing address. Notification will be deemed to have occurred upon the call being made or the SMS text message being sent.
Potential winners will have 7 days to provide the above requested information from the date of first notification. Failure to provide the above information, or a determination of ineligibility, will result in that potential winner being removed as a potential prize winner of the Sweepstakes and a replacement potential winner will be selected by an additional random draw from the remaining, eligible entries in the Sweepstakes.
Failure to complete and return an Affidavit, if required, will disqualify the potential winner and an alternate potential winner will be selected in their place. The decision of Sponsor as to the selection and eligibility of potential winners will be at the Sponsor’s sole discretion and is final.
The names and state of residence of the winners of the Sweepstakes will be posted by Sponsor to the following publicly available webpage for a period of at least sixty (60) days from the date the winner is selected and confirmed to be eligible for the prize. Entrants understand and agree that the Sponsor may publicize their name and state of residence in this manner and for the specified duration.
