Failure to do so will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the stated prize.

The submission of winning cups for verification and redemption is solely the responsibility of each participant. Participants assume all risk of loss, damage, destruction, delay and misdirection of promotion cups. Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due submissions of winning cups, which may be judged void; for any technical malfunctions, failures, or difficulties, printing errors, clerical, typographical or other error in the offering or announcement of any prize or in any prize notification documents; or for any errors of any kind, whether human, mechanical, clerical, electronic, or technical in nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. Proof of mailing winning cups does not constitute proof of delivery. Winning cups submitted become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Once verified, an eligible winner will receive the prize indicated on his or her winning cup. By participating in the promotion and redeeming a prize, each winner hereby releases and agrees to hold Sponsor, its successors, assigns, franchisees, parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, local corporate advertising cooperatives, advertising and promotion agencies, and all of their respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents (collectively the “Promotion Entities”) and all prize suppliers from and against any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death and injury, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to participation in the promotion or any promotion-related activity, or the receipt, use or misuse of any prize.

By submitting potential winning cups, each verified winner hereby agrees and grants to the Promotion Entities the right, but not the obligation, to the use of his or her name, voice, and likeness, and any statements made by or attributed to such winner in any and all media, without notice, review or approval, in perpetuity, for advertising and promotional purposes in connection with the promotion and other promotions without further compensation, and releases the Promotion Entities from any liability with respect thereto.

    b. Background Check. If Sponsor so elects, non-food prize winners may be required to submit to a confidential background check to confirm eligibility and help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the promotion will not bring Sponsor into public disrepute, contempt, scandal or ridicule or reflect unfavourably on the promotion, the Promotion Entities or any supplier of prizes for the promotion.
