11. No compensation will be payable if the winner is unable to collect their prize or use any element of the prize as stated for whatever reason.


12. If for any reason whatsoever a winner is not eligible to accept their prize, then the prize will be forfeited by that winner and neither cash nor any other prize will be awarded in lieu. If the winners do not claim their prize by the final cut-off date (item 3), they will forfeit the prize and the Promoter's judging panel will select another entry. This process will continue either until the particular prize is claimed or valid entries are exhausted, whichever occurs first.


13. All costs not expressly stated, but which may be incurred in acceptance and use of a prize, are the responsibility of the winners. Such additional costs may include, but are not limited to travel and/or transport to and from the store to collect the prize.


14. If this Promotion is interfered with in any way or is not capable of being conducted as reasonably anticipated due to any reason beyond the reasonable control of the Promoter, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to the fullest extent permitted by law to disqualify any entrant or modify, suspend, terminate or cancel the Promotion, as appropriate.
