Prize winners cannot assign or transfer their prizes to another person. Fulfillment/delivery dates for Prizes will be at Sponsor’s sole discretion. No substitution, transfer, or cash equivalent for Prizes (or Prize components), except that Sponsor may substitute a Prize (or Prize component) for one of equal or greater value for any reason. In the event that a Prize component is not available for any reason, then the remaining elements of Prize shall constitute full satisfaction of Sponsor’s Prize obligation to winner and no additional compensation will be awarded.

Such verification may include, but is not limited to, potential winner(s) submitting documentation (e.g. government issued ID, social security/tax ID number, applicable tax forms, etc.) for Sponsors’ review. If a potential winner cannot be reached, or does not submit requested documentation after a reasonable effort has been exerted, or if they are found to be ineligible, an alternate winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion. If the Prize or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable or if the potential winner fails to respond to notification attempts, the winner may be disqualified, and an alternate winner may be selected at Sponsor’s sole discretion. In the event the winner declines the Prize or winner fails to execute and return the completed releases described below, Sponsor may elect, at its own discretion, to select an alternate winner.
