Released Parties (as defined below) are not responsible for any unauthorized use of Entries by third parties. Sponsor has no obligation to make use of the rights granted herein.
WINNER DETERMINATION: A qualified panel of judges selected by Sponsor will judge all eligible Entries received equally on creativity and polish (the “Criteria”). The Entrant who submits the Entry that receives the highest score from the judges will be deemed the potential Winning Entrant (as defined below). In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker judge will judge the tied Entries using the Criteria to determine the Winning Entrant. Sponsor reserves the right to not award the prize if, in its sole discretion, it does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Entries. All decisions of Sponsor and the judges are final and binding. Sponsor will not reveal the judging scores for any Entry.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: The potential Winning Entrant will be notified of his/her/its status as the potential Winning Entrant at the email address associated with such potential Winning Entrant’s Program account within five (5) business days of the end of the Contest, or such other time as reasonably required by Sponsor for such notification, and will be subject to verification of compliance with these Official Rules. Upon formal notification from Sponsor, the potential Winning Entrant shall have seventy-two (72) hours from the date such notice was sent to respond and provide any information or materials requested by Sponsor, if any, for purposes of verification of eligibility.
The date of receipt by Sponsor shall be decisive for the potential Winning Entrant’s compliance with the deadlines set forth in this section. The failure by such Entrant to timely respond to any notification or request for materials or information may result in such Entrant’s disqualification as the potential Winning Entrant, in which case such Entrant shall not be entitled to win any prizes in connection with the Contest. In such case, Sponsor may select the next highest-scoring Entry from among the remaining Entries received during the Contest Period as an alternate potential Winning Entrant.
