In addition, in the event of any noncompliance with any of these Official Rules, the Prize may be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner selected by the Random Selection Software.
The Sponsor will cover the cost of delivering the Prize to the winner of the Contest at the address provided by the winner to the Sponsor.
Before being declared the winner of the Prize, the selected entrant must first correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise. If a selected entrant incorrectly answers the skill-testing question, such selected entrant will be disqualified and forfeits any eligibility for the Prize.
