Determination And Awarding Of Prizes
On or around one week after the applicable Entry Period closes, OPB will select potential winners for the prize(s) described below based on all eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. Potential winners will be notified by email or telephone (in OPB's discretion). Any prize not timely accepted by a winner will, in OPB's sole discretion, be forfeited for future use by OPB, returned to the prize donor, or awarded to an alternate winner. If a prize notification e-mail or any prize is returned to OPB or its designated agent as undeliverable, that prize will be awarded to an alternate winner. Prize packages will be awarded on an individual basis, with no more than one prize package awarded to each entrant. All eligible entries in a Member Drive sweepstakes will remain eligible for each prize in the applicable sweepstakes unless drawn as a winner for another prize.
OPB may, in its sole discretion, choose to substitute a prize of equal or greater value in the event the offered prize is unavailable. Prizes are not redeemable for cash, exchangeable, or transferable. All taxes on prizes, including but not limited to Federal, State, and local income and sales taxes, are the responsibility of the winners.

If the sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, OPB may either: (a) cancel or terminate the sweepstakes; (b) suspend the sweepstakes while it investigates the impairment, then resume the promotion if the impairment is resolved; or (c) award the prize at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment.
