A Selected Entrant that does not or cannot accept a prize may be forfeited and a new Selected Entrant selected by random draw, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. A signed copy of Sponsor’s Winner Release must be received by Sponsor no later than January 31, 2023. Sponsor is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of a Selected Entrant to receive notification or for Sponsor to receive a Selected Entrant’s response.

Disputes regarding identity of entrant: If the identity of a Selected Entrant is disputed, the Entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the individual assigned to the email address entered at the time of Entry (the “Authorized Account Holder”).
