The potential winner will be notified via the email account used to enter the Sweepstakes.

If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within forty-eight (48) hours of issuance of the first notification attempt (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will be disqualified, forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected from among all remaining eligible entries.
