Within two (2) business days of notification, the winner must respond to the notification with any additional information requested by The Sill, at The Sill’s reasonable discretion (e.g., shipping address for shipments under the Plant Parent Club membership and other relevant information needed to provide the Prize). Failure to comply with the requirements of this paragraph (or the return of the Prize or notification as non-deliverable) may result in disqualification and in the forfeiture of any right to the Prize, in which case the Prize will be forfeited.
The Prize will be awarded “AS IS” and without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
