Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winners by 10:00:00 AM ET the day following each daily drawing, except for drawing for entries submitted on December 24, in which the potential winner will be notified the evening of December 24.  If potential winner entered via Twitter, he or she will be notified on Twitter by direct message to the potential winner’s account. Sponsor is not responsible for changes to the Twitter direct message function that may interfere with potential winner notification. Potential winners who entered via Facebook or ritzpix.com will be notified by phone or email according to the contact information provided by that potential winner.  If a potential winner cannot be reached by Sponsor (or its designee) within five (5) days, or if prize notification is returned as undeliverable, that potential winner shall forfeit the prize and an alternative prize winner may be selected, time permitting. All information provided by entrants is subject to verification by Sponsor. Sponsor’s decisions will be made in Sponsor’s sole discretion and will be final and binding. If the potential winners cannot be contacted, are ineligible, or if the potential winner otherwise fails to fully comply with these Official Rules, that potential winner may be disqualified and the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner as selected by Sponsor, time permitting .  All prizes may not be awarded if an insufficient number of entries have been received. In the event of a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address (i) provided upon entry if entry was submitted by ritzpix.com or Facebook, or (ii) provided as response to the Direct Message indicating winning Twitter entry if entry was submitted by Twitter,  will be deemed to be the entrant.  The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.  Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
