If the prize notification cannot be delivered or is returned as undeliverable, the Potential Winner forfeits the prize. In the event that any Potential Winner does not comply with these Official Rules or is otherwise disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the prize to an alternate Potential Winner selected from among the other Contest entrants, at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
