The drawing for the potential Grand Prize Winner will take place on or about September 17, 2013, from among all eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Period. All drawings will be conducted by Circle K, and its decisions on all matters relating to this Sweepstakes are final and binding in all respects.

Circle K reserves the right in its sole discretion to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes in whole or in part for any reason without prior notice.

All federal, state, local, and other tax obligations arising from this Sweepstakes, including without limitation winning the Grand Prize, will be the sole responsibility of each prize winner. Prizes are non-transferable, and no substitution, cash redemption, assignment, or transfer of any prize is permitted, but Circle K reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in the event that an offered prize is unavailable for any reason. Unclaimed prizes may be awarded to alternate entrants. Potential winners will be notified initially by email (for online and in-store entries) or telephone call (for text message entries). Once contacted, potential winners will be sent a potential winner packet via email and will be required to submit identification and to complete, sign, and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Publicity Release, and Liability Waiver within five (5) days of attempted notification or the prizes may be forfeited.

All potential winners are subject to verification, including without limitation verification of eligibility, compliance with these Official Rules, and completion of release forms. In addition, Circle K reserves the right to require a confidential background check upon the potential winner selection to help ensure that the use of any such person in advertising or publicity for the Sweepstakes will not bring Circle K into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule or reflect unfavorably on the Sweepstakes or Circle K, as determined by Circle K in its sole discretion, and that the awarding of the prize to the potential winner will not violate applicable U.S. laws or regulations. In addition, Circle K reserves the right to require the potential winner to submit the information necessary for the confidential background check and authorize the check through electronic means designated by Circle K, in order to expedite the process of verifying the potential winner as eligible to receive the prize. If a potential winner fails to submit the information for the background check and authorize the check electronically where instructed to do so by Circle K, or Circle K determines in its sole discretion that the awarding of the prize may violate applicable U.S. laws or regulations, Circle K may disqualify the potential winner. If attempted notification is returned as undeliverable, if a potential winner is not verified as eligible or cleared via the background check, or if a potential winner is otherwise determined to be ineligible to receive a prize, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner in Circle K's sole discretion. The Sweepstakes is void outside of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and where prohibited by law and is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
