Upon prize forfeiture, no compensation will be given, and Sponsor will have no further obligation to that participant. Except where prohibited by law, the winner’s entry and acceptance of the prize constitutes permission for the Sponsor to use said winner’s name, address (city and state), photograph, likeness, statements, voice, statements, and biographical information without further compensation for advertising and promotional purposes without notice.
