If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to execute and return the Declaration or provide other required information (as applicable) within the required time period, or the prize or notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner will be disqualified and forfeits his/her prize.  Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules.  In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries.  Only three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. First Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 8-10 weeks after the conclusion of the Sweepstakes.
