A signed copy of the Sponsor’s Winner Release must be received by the Sponsor no later than five (5) business days following the Selected Entrant being notified by the Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of a Selected Entrant to receive notification or for the Sponsor to receive a Selected Entrant’s response.

Disputes regarding identity of entrant: If the identity of a Selected Entrant is disputed, the entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the individual assigned to the Instagram account entered at the time of entry (the “Authorized Account Holder”).
