Failure of a potential winner to timely return the required executed documents within the specified time period may cause the prize to be forfeited and awarded to an alternate as solely determined by Sponsor. If a prize is refused, a prize notification is returned or deemed undeliverable, or a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, an alternate potential winner will be selected via another random drawing. Except where prohibited by law (e.g., Tennessee), acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner's name, hometown, likeness, statements, and other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without additional prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review; and upon request, winner will provide written consent to such use.
