Sponsor’s decisions on all matters related to the promotion are binding and final. Sponsor will notify winners within seven (7) days of the respective Daily Contest, and winners will be required to respond within twenty-four (24) hours after receiving notice, or the prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner will be chosen.  Sponsor will notify winners that entered using Twitter by posting a comment on the winner’s respective Entry.  Sponsor will notify winners that entered via Instagram by posting a comment on the winner’s respective Entry.  Sponsor will notify winners that entered using Facebook by posting a comment to the winner’s respective Entry.  Sponsor’s notification via Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook will ask potential winner to provide information necessary to fulfill prize award, such as name, age, mailing address, or other contact information.  If Sponsor does not receive at least twenty-four (24) eligible Entries for any particular Daily Contest, Sponsor reserves the right to award fewer prizes, i.e., only to the entrants who submitted eligible Entries for that particular Daily Contest.

In addition to the above, Sponsor may also congratulate winners on Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook, including by reposting the entrant’s photo entry on Sponsor’s Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook page or feed.  Sponsor, however, has no obligation to announce publicly or post winners for any particular Daily Contest on Twitter, Instagram, and/or Facebook.
