Return information is specified on the forms.

Return of any prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner, solely at the Sponsor's discretion. Sponsor will use reasonable efforts to select an alternate winner(s) but in the event one cannot be reasonably determined, such prize will not be awarded. Sponsor reserves the right to verify identification and eligibility of the potential Prize Winner before the prize will be awarded.
