WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION.
A random draw will be made by Red Tricycle on the date of the Contest Closing Date from all eligible entries received to select the prize winner(s). Selected entrants will be notified by tweet and will be asked to correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by email; Selected entrants will then have fourteen (14) calendar days following receipt thereof to contact Red Tricycle to claim their prize. Should Red Tricycle not receive a reply within fourteen (14) days the selected entrant will be deemed to have forfeited any rights to the prize and an alternate potential winner may be selected. Additionally, failure to provide proof of eligibility (if requested), release documents, or other required documentation in a timely manner, failure to correctly answer the skill-testing question, or other non-compliance with these Official Rules may result in disqualification, forfeiture of the prize and, at Sponsor’s sole discretion, selection of an alternate eligible entrant for the forfeited prize in accordance with these Official Rules, who will be subject to disqualification in the same manner. (After five (5) such alternate potential winners have been selected without securing an eligible winner, the prize may remain un-awarded.) Upon contacting a potential winner and determining that he/she has met all eligibility requirements of the Promotion, including without limitation the execution of required waivers, publicity and liability releases and disclaimers, and correctly answering the skill testing question, such individual will be declared the “winner” of the Promotion.
