If a potential winner fails to be within the Rainway PAX East booth at the time of the drawing (4:00 p.m. ET), that potential winner is disqualified and the Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible Entries received throughout the Sweepstakes Period. Potential winners are subject to verification by Sponsor and/or Administrator, whose decisions are final AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. An entrant is not a winner of a prize unless and until entrant’s eligibility has been verified and entrant has been notified that verification is complete.

6. Sweepstakes Random Drawings: Each day during the Sweepstakes Period, a Daily Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible Entries received during that day. The random drawings will be conducted by the Administrator; an independent judging organization whose decisions are final on all matters relating to the drawing.

8. General Conditions: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion and in the event of cancellation. Sponsor and their agencies are not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, damaged, stolen or misdirected entries; or other errors or malfunctions of any kind whether human, mechanical, electronic, or otherwise. Proof of sending or submission of Entry will not be deemed proof of receipt by Sponsor or Administrator.

If, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, void any suspect Entries and (a) modify the Sweepstakes or suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the Daily Prize at random from among the eligible, non-suspect Entries received up to the time of the impairment and award Prize Period prizes from among the eligible, non-suspect Entries received for each Prize Period up to the time of the impairment.
