6. Drawings: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the selection of the potential winners are final and binding.  On or about August 26, 2016, Administrator will select the names of the potential winners in a random drawing of all eligible entries received for the applicable prize during the Promotion Period. The potential winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. The odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received for the applicable prize during the Promotion Period.

If a potential prize winner fails to provide a Declaration of Compliance, Liability & Publicity Release or any other requested information (as applicable), he/she may be disqualified and forfeit the prize.  In the event that any potential winner cannot be contacted, forfeits the prize, or is disqualified for any reason, if time permits, Administrator will select an alternate potential winner in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates.  If the alternate potential winners are disqualified, the applicable prize will not be awarded.
