In the event there is no Selected Entrant that has complied with all Contest Rules, the Prize will not be awarded. The Sponsor is not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact any Selected Entrant. The Sponsor will contact the Winner to arrange for delivery of the Prize following receipt of the Sponsor’s Release.
