Sponsor reserves the right to substitute the Prize (or any part thereof) for an item (including cash) of equivalent or greater value if for any reason, in Sponsor’s discretion, the Prize (or any part thereof) cannot, or without hardship cannot, be awarded as described in these Rules. No responsibility or liability is accepted for any variation in the value of the Prize. Any and all taxes and other costs and expenses arising from or relating to the Prize (or any substitutions) are solely the responsibility of the Prize winner.
4. DRAWING AND NOTIFICATION OF WINNER
One (1) winner will be drawn by the Sponsor from among all eligible entries received by 11:59 p.m. PT on August 23, 2020 based on a random draw from all eligible entries. The potential winner will be drawn on or around August 24, 2020 and will be contacted by Sponsor thereafter via the email address noted in the potential winner’s Passport Rewards account.
This Promotion is a sweepstakes (i.e., game of chance) and skill plays no part in the determination of the winner. The Sponsor or its designee will attempt to contact the potential winner by emailing the potential winner on or about the date Sponsor first draws the potential winner’s name at the email address noted in the potential winner’s Passport Rewards account. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within two (2) days from the date Sponsor first emails the potential winner, or if a Prize notification is returned or reported as undeliverable, or if the potential winner (whether or not contacted) is deemed to be ineligible or disqualified (which shall be in the Sponsor’s sole discretion), or if the potential winner fails to, is unable to or is unwilling to comply with these Rules, or if the potential winner fails to, is unable to or is unwilling to sign and deliver to Sponsor’s satisfaction within two (2) days after such winner is sent a waiver, release and confirmation of eligibility under and compliance with these Rules by Sponsor, then the potential winner forfeits all rights to win the Promotion or receive a Prize and will be deemed disqualified. In such case another potential winner shall be drawn for the Prize at issue. This process may be repeated until the Prize has been awarded and delivered, upon which event such potential winner will be declared the winner of the Promotion. All findings, determinations and decisions of the Sponsor may be made in the Sponsor’s sole discretion and are final and binding in all matters relating to this Promotion and in all respects.
As a condition to receiving the Prize, the potential winner will be required to sign and deliver to Sponsor an Affidavit of Eligibility and Release of Liability. Further, given the ARV of the Prize, the potential winner will be required to provide Sponsor with their tax identification number. Sponsor is required to declare the ARV of the Prize to the Internal Revenue Service and provide the name and tax identification number of the Winner.
The winner will be posted on https://www.toms.com/sweepstakes-winner or such other Web locations of Sponsor’s as may be deemed appropriate by Sponsor after such winner has been declared.
