Each potential winner will be notified via email during the Promotion Period. If (i) the attempted notification is returned as undeliverable without a forwarding address; (ii) any required documents are not returned within seven days, including but not limited to the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release; or (iii) if winner is otherwise unable to accept the prize as stated, prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner in accordance with the above selection method.
