The Sponsor reserves the right to select less than thirty (30) winners, at its sole discretion. The odds of winning are based on the number of eligible entries received at the time of each respective drawing. Within twenty-four (24) hours after each potential winner has been selected, the potential winner will be notified by email and/or by a message on Instagram or Twitter, depending on which platform was used by the potential winner to submit his/her winning entry. Except where legally prohibited, each potential winner must sign and return, within seven (7) days of being notified, an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release in order to claim his/her prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted in person via email or via Instagram/Twitter (as applicable) after the first attempt to contact him/her, or if he/she fails to sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release or Declaration of Compliance within the required time period (if applicable), or in the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which any remaining prizes will remain un-awarded.
