Prize Details and Information: The model, make, color, and options of each prize vehicle (“Vehicle”) will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Each winner is solely responsible for all federal, state, and local taxes, including incremental income taxes; license, title, and registration fees; insurance; any optional or required safety equipment; and any other expenses related to acceptance and use of his/her prize. Sponsor makes no representations regarding the tax liability associated with any prize, and winner is advised to seek counsel regarding any tax liabilities associated with his/her prize. Each Vehicle will be awarded solely with any express written limited warranties set forth by the manufacturer in the Vehicle’s applicable Owner’s Guide (if any), in which case any such warranties shall run for the term set forth in said Guide. Apart from any potentially applicable manufacturer warranties (if any), each Vehicle will be awarded on an “AS-IS” basis without warranty, guaranty, or representation of any kind by the Releasees (as defined below), express or implied, in fact or in law, including without limitation any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, safety, legality for use in the winner’s jurisdiction of residence, durability, reliability, mechanical condition, and/or performance. 

Each vehicle will be made available at a Versiti headquarters located in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, or Ohio, depending on the residence of each selected winner. Each winner (or winner’s designated representative) may be required to present a valid Vehicle driver’s license and evidence of insurance as a condition of acceptance of Vehicle. Winner (or winner’s designated representative) must take delivery of his/her Vehicle within 30 days of notice of availability (i.e., date on which Sponsor notifies winner that Vehicle has arrived at the selected Versiti headquarters). If a winner does not take delivery of a Vehicle within such 30-day period or otherwise fails to satisfy the requirements set forth in these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner selected at random from among the remaining applicable eligible entries. Prizes are non-transferable, and no cash redemptions or substitutions are allowed except in the sole discretion of the Sponsor, who reserves the right to award a prize of equal or greater value, should a prize become unavailable for any reason, including but limited to Vehicle production or supply-chain delays. Any prize details and restrictions not specified will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor will not replace or repair any prize which, after winner accepts delivery, is lost, stolen, or damaged. Any difference between the approximate value and actual value of a prize (or any substitution prize) will not be awarded. Prize consists only of items specifically listed as part of the prize. All costs and expenses not specified herein related to any prize or incurred by accepting the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. Limit one (1) prize per person and/or household during the entire Sweepstakes Period.

ODDS OF WINNING, WINNER SELECTION, AND NOTIFICATION: Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received for each of the four (4) separate drawings, respectively.

The potential winner for each drawing will be selected randomly on or about the dates listed in the chart above. Each potential winner will be notified via phone and/or email on or about the applicable drawing date (using information provided to Sponsor or via the mail-in entry) to verify his/her eligibility and ability to accept the prize, and to obtain his/her complete contact information. Any such message will instruct the potential winner to reply as specified within five (5) full business days after the time that the message was left or sent. Potential winner must reply as instructed to identify him/herself, confirm his/her eligibility and ability to accept the prize, and provide his/her complete contact information within such five (5) full business day period, or he/she will be disqualified. Each potential winner will subsequently be required to complete an affidavit/certification of eligibility, a liability release, and (where legal) a publicity release, which must be returned within the time period specified by Sponsor at the time of such request. Each winner will also be required to return a properly completed IRS W-9 form within the time period specified by Sponsor, and each such winner will receive an IRS Form 1099 issued in his/her name for the fair market value of prize received. Proof of identity, age, and legal residence may be required to claim a prize. Any winner or potential winner may be disqualified in Sponsor’s sole discretion if: (a) he/she fails to reply or to provide any required information or properly completed documents within the required time period; (b) he/she fails to comply with any of the terms of these Official Rules; or (c) if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable. In the event of disqualification of any winner, at Sponsor’s sole discretion the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner selected from among the remaining applicable eligible entries via the means of winner determination described herein, pending verification of eligibility. If any prize remains unclaimed after three (3) potential winners have been notified for that prize, the prize may remain unawarded, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. No responsibility is assumed by Sponsor for any incorrect or missing contact information associated with an entry, or for any change of contact information of entrant after entry submission. Upon winner confirmation, Sponsor will provide information to winner on expected delivery date of Vehicle and how to obtain the Vehicle prize. PLEASE NOTE: Delivery of Vehicle may be delayed due to supply chain issues or other reasons. In such event, Sponsor will communicate with winner regarding expected delivery date.
