AL may prohibit an entrant from participating in the Sweepstakes if, in its sole discretion, it determines that said entrant is attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes by cheating, hacking, deception, or other unfair practices (including the use of automated quick entry programs) or intending to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other entrants or AL's representatives, or if entrant has or had attempted to submit malicious code, .exe files, or any file that contains malicious code.
If any selected Grand Prize winner cannot be reached by e-mail within ten (10) business days of AL's first attempt to notify such winner, such Grand Prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected from the remaining eligible entries by random drawing. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Grand Prize winner will be subject to verification. Return of any prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.
If the Grand Prize is unclaimed, it may be awarded to an alternate winner. Depiction of the Sweepstakes' prize, or any portion thereof, in any advertising, promotional materials, or on AL's Web site(s) or on the Sweepstakes' Web page may not reflect the actual prize delivered to the winner. AL or its agents shall not be responsible for delays in delivery of the prize. Winner shall bear all risk of loss or damage to their prize after it has been delivered to such winner. The Grand Prize winner is solely responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes on the prize and/or such winner's acceptance thereof.

The Grand Prize winner cannot assign or transfer the prize to another person or entity and is not entitled to cash in place of the prizes. The Grand Prize is subject to availability and AL in its sole discretion may substitute cash or a different prize of approximately equivalent or greater retail value except where prohibited by law.
