Potential Winners and Prize winners may be required, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion, to provide the Sponsor with a copy of photo identification showing his/her valid address. Potential Winners and/or Prize winners agree to cooperate in any investigations by the Sponsor to confirm his/her eligibility and to help ensure that the use of such Potential Winner and/or Prize Winner in advertising or publicity for the Promotion will not bring the Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavourably on the Promotion or the Sponsor, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. Upon request the Potential Winner will provide the name of his/her employer and/or occupation. No correspondence will be entered into except with each Potential Winner. Prizes will be sent by email or courier dependent on timing to the Prize winner’s address as indicated on the Entry upon completion of the Release Form.
