Any failure of the Winner to comply with the terms and conditions of the Lease may result in forfeiture of the Sweepstakes Prize and disqualification as the Sweepstakes Winner. Any violation of the Sweepstakes Publicity and Conduct Obligations during the Lease Period shall be considered a violation of the terms and conditions of the Lease.

Any automobile storage costs resulting from the Winner's inability to collect the Sweepstakes Prize in the time noted are the sole responsibility of the Winner. Sweepstakes Entities shall not have any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any property loss, damage, personal injury or death in connection with the acceptance, misuse or use of the Sweepstakes Prize provided pursuant to the Sweepstakes and/or any person's participation in the Sweepstakes.

7. RELEASE. By accepting the Sweepstakes Prize, the Winner agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor and its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors and each such company's officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of the Sweepstakes Prize or any portion of the Sweepstakes Prize.
