  6. Sweepstakes Rules.

    Winners will be randomly selected on or around February 17, 2014. Winners shall be notified via their contact registered with their Online Store account on or about the same day (the "Notification Package").

    Return of any prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification and an alternate winner will be selected. To be eligible to receive a prize, each Winner must follow the instructions contained in the Notification Package and, if requested, sign an Affidavit of Eligibility, Publicity Release, and Liability Waiver and respond with the other information requested prior to the date specified in the Notification Package. Such requested information may be necessary for purposes of filing a 1099 form with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (the "IRS"). It is each Winner's sole responsibility to file winning prizes with the IRS or other governmental entity, should it be required by law to do so. Each Winner shall consult with a professional, if necessary. If a Minor is selected (as determined by the state of residence), a parent or legal guardian must sign the required and requested documents, including the Consent Form. Sponsor may request, in its sole discretion, to have the Affidavit of Eligibility, Publicity Release, and Liability Waiver and the other requested documents notarized by the Winner (or his or her parent or legal guardian, in the case of a Minor). A return envelope and prepaid courier bill may be included in the Notification Package, which the Winner may have an option to use. The requested documents must be sent to Sponsor at the address specified in the Notification Package and must be received by Sponsor by the date specified. If the Winner fails to return all of the signed and requested documents according to the instructions provided in the Notification Package, or if the requested documents are not signed by an appropriate party (e.g., by a parent or legal guardian, if a Minor is selected) or are not received by Sponsor by the specified date, the Winner shall be deemed disqualified and will forfeit his or her eligibility. If disqualified, the Winner will not receive any prize. In the case where the Winner forfeits or is disqualified, Sponsor will select an alternate entrant as a replacement for the disqualified or forfeited winner.

    Sponsor reserves the right to amend the terms and conditions set forth herein without notice; however, the remaining terms in this Official Rules remain in full force and effect, and all rights and obligations set forth herein and any amendments shall be binding upon Sponsor and the Winner, should such change take place.

    Prizes are not transferable. Entrant must submit their own name, birth date, email address and cell phone number. Entrant may not impersonate any other person, or entity, and submit false or misleading information, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant that does so. If a Minor is selected (as determined by the laws of state of residence), such Minor needs to obtain consent from a parent or legal guardian. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.

    Each Winner shall comply with federal, state, and local laws at all times.

    In no event will a Winner be entitled to any fee, royalty, or other compensation of any kind as a result of the Sweepstakes.
