The selected entrant will also be required to sign a form of Declaration and Release (“Release Form”) or otherwise confirm compliance with the Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, without substitution, and release the Sponsor, its dealers, agents, affiliated and related companies, advertising and promotional agencies, the independent judging organization and their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, dealers, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any liability arising out of or in any way connected with the operation of this Contest and use of the Prize. Prize winner assumes all liability for any injury or damage caused, or claimed to be caused, by participation in this Contest or use or redemption of the Prize and from and against any and all claims based on publicity rights, defamation, invasion of privacy, copyright infringement, trade-mark infringement or any other intellectual property related cause of action that relate in any way to the Entry. The Release Form must be returned within the time period specified on the Release Form or the Prize may be forfeited.
