The randomly selected eligible entrant’s e-mail addresses must be valid for those participants to be declared the winner. The Entry forms are subject to verification by the Sponsor and Newad. All Entry forms deemed to be fraudulent, or with an incorrect address, missing name or any other error or important omission will be automatically rejected and considered ineligible for the Prize. The Sponsor and Newad’s decision is final and may not be appealed.
Before being declared THE CONFIRMED PRIZE winner, the selected entrant will be required to: (a) correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question without mechanical or other aid; and (b) sign and return within five (5) days of notification the Sponsor’s declaration and release form, which (among other things): (i) confirms compliance with these Rules; (ii) acknowledges acceptance of the Prize as awarded; (iii) releases the Contest Parties and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability in connection with this Contest, his/her participation therein and/or the awarding and use/misuse of the Prize or any portion thereof; and (iv) agrees to the publication, reproduction and/or other use of his/her name, address, voice, statements about the Contest and/or photograph or other likeness without further notice or compensation, in any publicity or advertisement carried out by or on behalf of the Sponsor in any manner whatsoever, including print, broadcast or the internet. If the selected entrant: (a) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (b) fails to return the properly executed Contest documents within the specified time; and/or (c) cannot accept the Prize for any reason; then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new selected entrant).
The Prize winner shall claim the prize in store (shipping and installation are not included). If the winner cannot claim the prize in store, the winner will have to forfeit the prize. The prize cannot be exchanged for another prize except at the discretion of Newad. The prize cannot be sold or transferred to any other person.

The e-mail address used to reach the potential winner will be the one submitted on the Entry form. Only the eligible Contest winner will be contacted after the eligble Contest winner has been drawn. If the potential winner, randomly selected in the draw, cannot be contacted by e-mail or phone after five (5) days of unsuccessful attempts by Newad, he/she automatically forfeits the Prize without recourse or any other compensation.
