CNA is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of a selected entrant to receive notification or of CNA to receive a selected entrant’s response. Chances of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received. The selected Entrants must agree to accept the Grand Prize as established by these Rules, or further random draws will be held until a Winner is determined.
