4. SELECTION OF WINNERS: One potential winner for each Entry Period will be selected
at random within three (3) days following the end of the applicable Entry Period from among all

Entry Period will not carry forward into subsequent Entry Periods. Sponsor will send the
Potential Winner a message from the applicable Entry Twitter Page or Entry Instagram Page to
Potential Winner’s Twitter account or Instagram account used to enter the Sweepstakes with
instructions on how to claim the prize. In order to receive a message from Sponsor, entrant must
(a) be following the Entry Twitter Page or Entry Instagram Page; (b) have his or her account
settings set to “unprotected” and/or “public”; and (c) list his/her current location as somewhere in
the New York, New Jersey or Connecticut area on Twitter or Instagram. If Potential Winner
does not respond and comply with the instructions within twenty-four (24) hours after Sponsor
sends the message, he/she will forfeit the prize and Sponsor may select an alternate Potential
Winner in his/her place in a random drawing of all eligible entries received for the drawing at
issue. Potential Winner must comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and
winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Potential Winner may be required
to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release within twenty-four
(24) hours of the date of notice in order to claim his/her prize and become an official winner
(“Official Winner”). If a prize or prize notification is returned as undelivered, a Potential Winner
cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity
Release within the required time period or is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the
Potential Winner may be disqualified and forfeits the prize. In the event that a Potential Winner
is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the prize to an alternate Potential Winner by
3
random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries received. Odds of winning depend on
the total number of eligible entries received for the applicable drawing.
