Unless restricted by law, Selected Entrant (or Entrant's parent or legal guardian if Entrant is a minor) will be required to complete and return the Release within five (5) days from the date of notification.

Selected Entrant will receive the Prize by mail within approximately thirty (30) days of the date on which the Sponsor receives the completed, signed Release from the Selected Entrant (exact timing subject to change based upon availability of Prize).

If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winners from all eligible, non-suspect Submissions received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision.
