If a) prize notification is returned as undeliverable b) Required Documents are not timely returned, or c) potential winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, potential winner will forfeit all rights to win and be disqualified, and prize will be awarded to an alternate by random drawing from remaining eligible entries.
