The Tournament Stakeholders shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by the potential winner for any reason.

If any potential winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with this Paragraph or declines a prize for any reason prior to award, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any Player, the affected entry will be deemed submitted by the person identified as the Simon Cup Account holder, provided such Simon Cup Account holder must still meet the eligibility requirements. A potential winner may be requested to provide the Tournament Stakeholders with proof that the potential winner is the Simon Account holder associated with the winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved to the Tournament Stakeholders’ satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible.
