It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to notify the Sponsor in writing if the entrant changes his or her email or postal address during the Sweepstakes Period.

After the third such drawing, the prize will remain unawarded.  In the event of noncompliance with any requirement, the non-complying potential winner will be disqualified.  No substitution, exchange or transfer of prize except by Sponsor, in which case a prize of equal or greater value will be substituted.
