In the event of a dispute over who submitted an Entry, the authorized subscriber of the e-mail account used in connection with the Entry, as of the actual time of Entry, will be deemed to be the Entrant. The “authorized account subscriber” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization (e.g. business, education, institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. A selected, or potential winning “authorized account subscriber” may be required to provide Sponsor with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the e-mail address associated with the applicable Entry.

The approximate retail value (“ARV”) of each Grand Prize is $340.00 USD. Any difference between actual value and stated ARV will not be awarded. FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL INCOME TAXES OF ENTIRE GRAND PRIZE ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE WINNER, even if the winner gifts one of the certificates to a friend.

All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Neither Sponsor nor Administrator are responsible if the Grand Prize, or any part thereof, cannot be awarded due to travel cancellations, delays or interruptions or any other issue beyond their control (e.g., airline decisions, acts of God, weather, government action, equipment failure, terrorist acts, earthquake, war, fire, flood, explosion, etc.).
6. GRAND PRIZE DRAWINGS: 366 Grand Prize Winners (each, a “Grand Prize Winner”) will be selected in 366 separate random drawings from among eligible Entries. Each Promotion Day will have its own corresponding random drawing. Administrator will conduct approximately seven (7) random drawings to be held approximately at the conclusion of each week during the Promotion Period. The first and last weeks of the Promotion will be short weeks. The random drawings will be conducted by an independent adjudicator appointed by the Sweepstakes Administrator. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Entries submitted during one Promotion Day will not carry over into subsequent drawings for subsequent Promotion Days.
7. Winner Notification/Requirements: Grand Prize Winner will be notified by e-mail or phone at Sponsor’s discretion within seven (7) days of Grand Prize Drawing. If Sponsor cannot locate the Grand Prize Winner within fourteen (14) days of date of attempted notification, the prize may be forfeited and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner may be selected for the drawing at issue by the independent adjudicator. If a Grand Prize Winner cannot be contacted within a reasonable time period, or a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, such Grand Prize Winner will forfeit prize and, at Sponsor’s discretion, an alternate winner may be selected. Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all respects.
Any Canadian resident who is a potential winner of any prize must correctly answer a time-limited mathematically skill-testing question administered by telephone without assistance or mechanical or electronic aid in order to receive a prize. If a selected Canadian potential winner cannot be reached by telephone within a reasonable time period or answers the skill testing question incorrectly, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, he/she may be disqualified, and at Sponsor’s discretion, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner selected by random draw from all remaining eligible entries.
