HOW THE SWEEPSTAKES WORKS

Before December 1, 2020, Administrator will select, on a random basis, 1 entrant from those who completed the online Survey, and the selected entrant will win the Grand Prize. Administrator will email notice (the “Notice”) to the selected entrant at the email provided in the entrants’ Official Survey on or before December 1, 2020. If a Notice is returned, deemed un-deliverable, or the selected entrant has not responded within 14 days after Administrator sends the Notice, or if the selected entrant is found to be ineligible or fails to comply with these Official Rules, Administrator may decide, in its sole discretion, that the selected entrant has forfeited the prize, and Administrator may select, on a random basis, an alternate winner from eligible entrants.

Only after Administrator has determined to its sole satisfaction that an entrant has met all eligibility requirements of the Sweepstakes (including, without limitation, the execution and timely return of the Winner Forms) will such individual be declared a “winner” of the Sweepstakes. Where a verified winner, Administrator may, at its option, deliver the winner’s prize by shipping, at Administrator’s expense, at the mailing address provided by the winner within 180 days after Administrator determines that the entrant has met all eligibility requirements and won a prize.

In case of dispute as to the identity of any entrant, an entry will be declared made by the registered name and email shown in the Survey. Any potential prize winner may be requested to provide Administrator with proof of identity satisfactory to Administrator proving that such person is the prize winner.

Except where prohibited by law, acceptance of a prize shall constitute and signify the winner’s consent that Sponsor, Administrator, and their affiliates may use the winner’s name, likeness, image, voice, photographs, biographical information, address (city and state) and written statements made by the winner about the Sweepstakes, Sponsor’s or Administrator’s products and Sponsor or Administrator for promotional purposes, in all forms of media, in perpetuity and without monetary payment or additional consideration. Administrator reserves the right to announce the identity of each Sweepstakes prize winner and the prize awarded to each such winner on any of Sponsor’s or Administrator’s marketing platforms such as websites, social sites, or email, or on those of their affiliates.

Any difference between the stated value and the actual value of any prize will not be awarded. If a winner cannot accept prize as stated, the prize may be forfeited. The value associated with a prize may be taxable to the winner as income, and, if so, the winner is solely responsible for any taxes, including, but not limited to, all applicable federal, state and local taxes, that become due with respect to the value of the prize. If Sponsor or Administrator is required to report the value of a prize to the Internal Revenue Service in the year that the winner receives the prize, Sponsor or Administrator will report to the prize winner and the Internal Revenue Service in the form of a Form 1099. Any and all fees, expenses, service charges, gratuities, and other costs related to acceptance and use of a prize not specifically stated herein are solely the responsibility of the individual prize winner. No prize may be substituted, assigned, transferred, or redeemed for cash, except that Administrator reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to offer a prize winner the option of receiving a cash prize substitute. A winner is responsible for any loss of the prize or damage to the prize after it has been delivered. Administrator will not replace any lost or stolen prizes.
