By entering into the Promotion, the entrant agrees that the Sponsor may use the entrant’s name and photograph and/or video images of an interview with the Sponsor for promotional and marketing purposes, without compensation to the entrant, in the event the entrant is selected as the winner.
3. DRAWING/NOTIFICATION AND VERIFICATION OF WINNERS: Sponsor will select three (3) winners, one (1) winner per drawing, from a series of three (3) random drawings from among all eligible entrants.

The odds of winning any one prize depends on the total number of qualified entrants. Any winner of a drawing will be ineligible to win any future drawing in connection with this Promotion. One entry will be sufficient to be considered for each drawing, provided that the entry is received by the Sponsor no less than two calendar days prior to the drawing(s) entrant wishes to be eligible for. The winners will be notified via email or by phone (at Sponsor’s sole discretion). Once notified, the winners are required to keep the results of the prize drawing confidential until such time as Sponsor publicly discloses the results of the prize drawing.

Except where legally prohibited, winners must, if requested, sign and return, within 48 hours of being notified, an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release in order to claim his/her prize.
Return of any prize notification as undeliverable or the inability to contact a potential winner via phone or email may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner. If a potential winner is unavailable to accept the prize within 48 hours, or if the potential winner fails to comply with these Official Rules as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be selected in his/her place in a random drawing from all remaining eligible entries.
Verification of Potential Winners: ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR, WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE PROMOTION.
