Selection of Winner
On or about 12/02/2019 EST (the "Drawing Date"), Administrator will select the potential Giveaway winner ("Potential Winner") in accordance with these Official Rules. The Administrator's database computer is the official timekeeping device for the Giveaway. The Potential Winner will be selected by random drawing from all eligible entries received by the Administrator during the Giveaway Entry Period. The Potential Winner will be notified by email on or about the Drawing Date, using the email address provided with the selected entry, and will be conditionally awarded the Giveaway Prize (hereinafter defined) subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms and conditions of these Official Rules. If a Potential Winner does not respond within 12 hours after the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such Potential Winner, such Potential Winner may be disqualified and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected. The notification will include instructions for how to contact the Administrator to provide name, address and other information that may be required to complete validation of eligibility and delivery of prize. No liability is assumed for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a Potential Winner for any reason. At Sponsor’s discretion, a background check ("Background Check") may be performed with respect to the Potential Winner as part of the process to confirm any Potential Winner’s eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and the Terms of Service, which Background Check such Potential Winner would have to pass in order to receive the prize. By entering the Giveaway, entrant agrees to cooperate fully with any such Background Check, and to execute and deliver to Administrator all required authorizations and approvals for said Background Check to be conducted. Failure to cooperate may result in disqualification. If the prize includes the opportunity to meet a celebrity, attend a special event, or participate in any similar activity, or if Sponsor or Administrator intends to publicize the winner in any way, and if a background check reveals that a Potential Winner or Guest has engaged in conduct that could damage the reputation or business of Sponsor or Administrator, as determined by Administrator in its discretion, the Potential Winner may be disqualified and the prize may be awarded to an alternate Potential Winner, time permitting.
In the event that a Potential Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable prize to an alternate Potential Winner who will be selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. The selected Potential Winner must execute all consents as provided by applicable law. Odds of winning the Giveaway Prize (hereinafter defined) depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Giveaway Entry Period.
