6. Failure to comply with any of the above conditions or otherwise with the rules, will result in the disqualification of the selected winner. In this event, a new random draw from the valid entries received during the applicable Submission Period will be performed to award the prize and the entrant selected must be reached by Twitter mention and have responded within 24 hours of the new draw, failing which another draw will be held within a subsequent equal timeframe (time permitting) up until such a time as a winner is declared. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all winners must be declared by January 15, 2013; otherwise the unawarded Prizes will be void.

7. Upon receipt of the signed Declaration and Release form, the contest organizers will notify each prize winner of the manner in which he/she will have to take possession of his/her prize. GMCL reserves the right to determine how the prize presentation of each prize will occur and this may be either a media event, by mail, or in person.

8. By entering this Contest, the winner authorizes the Sponsor and the contest organizers and their representatives to use in any related publicity, if required, his/her name, photograph, image, television appearance, any statements he/she may make regarding the prize, place of residence and/or voice for advertising purposes worldwide in perpetuity and in any form of media without any form of compensation or further notice, except where prohibited by law.

9. All entries become the property of GMCL and will not be returned to entrants at any time. No communication or correspondence will be exchanged with entrants, except with the entrants selected to win a prize.
