The Prize will be awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied, offered by Sponsor. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
  5. Potential Winner Selection: Potential Winner will be selected on or about the Winner Selection Date in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received. In the event Sponsor does not receive any eligible entries, Sponsor has the right to cancel the Sweepstakes. The random drawing will be conducted by Sponsor, whose decisions are final.

If potential Winner fails to respond as stated above, declines the Prize, or fails to provide any other requested information within the time, such potential Winner will forfeit the Prize and Sponsor will select an alternate potential Winner by random drawing from remaining eligible entrants. If an alternate similarly fails to respond or declines the Prize, Sponsor will use a reasonable number of attempts, in its discretion, to award the Prize to another alternate.
