Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that entrant's entries and that entrant may be disqualified.

6. Prize Drawing
On or about December 13, 2019, the Sponsor will select potential winners in a random drawing, computer-generated drawing from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period.

The Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner via telephone or email on or about December 18, 2019 If the potential winner cannot be contacted within five (5) days after the date of the first attempt to contact him/her, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from the remaining non-winning, eligible entries.
