The decision of the Sponsor is final. Winners may be asked to provide written electronic consent to use of their user name, photo and likeness at the time of notification.
Claiming prize: Prize winners must accept the Prize within seven (7) days following notification that Entrant is one of the prize winners. The failure of a winning Entrant to respond, or to respond satisfactorily, to the prize notification within such seven-day period entitles Sponsor to award such Prize to another Entrant.
Use of Sweepstakes Data: Sponsor will use the photograph and user name provided by Entrants for the purposes of implementing, conducting and managing the Sweepstakes. Entrants are cautioned that participation is limited to natural persons 18 years old or older, therefore Sponsor reserves the right to ask Entrants, at any time, to provide evidence that they are 18 years old or older. Likewise, Entrants authorize the processing and disclosure of certain personal data, including disclosure of their user names and image on the Internet through the Web Media for the purposes of implementing, promoting, managing and commercially exploiting the results of the Sweepstakes.

By accepting the prize, each winner consents to Sponsor’s use of his or her user name, photograph and/or likeness, and statements made by or attributed to the winner, in perpetuity, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed for all business purposes without additional compensation, except to the extent prohibited by law. The authorized account holder of the Twitter account used to enter the Sweepstakes at the time of entry will be deemed to be the participant and must comply with these rules in the event of a dispute as to entries submitted by multiple users having the same e-mail account. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization (e.g., business, educational, institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address.
