If a Potential Winner does not respond within the timeframe stated in the notification email, the Prize will be forfeited and Contest Organizers will select an alternate Potential Winner in his/her place at random from the remaining entries received during the Contest Period.  If Contest Organizers select an individual’s name more than once, only the first selection will be counted.  In this scenario, Contest Organizers will select an alternative name at random from the remaining entries received until twenty-one (21) different names have been selected at random as Potential Winners.
