The Contest is not open to the Sponsor or its parents, related and affiliated companies, advertising and promotional agencies, or employees, officers, directors, representatives, agents, successors or assignees thereof (collectively the “Contest Group”), or any persons residing in the same household with members of the Contest Group. By entering the Contest, entrants agree to abide by these Official Rules and all decisions of the Sponsor, which shall be final and binding on all entrants in all matters pertaining to the Contest.

Entries will be declared invalid if they are late, illegible, incomplete, damaged, irregular, mutilated, forged, garbled or mechanically or electronically reproduced. Should it be discovered that an entrant is using the aid of computer software programs to auto-fill entries in an unauthorized manger, that entrant will be immediately disqualified from the Contest. The Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify all such entrants from future contests conducted by the Sponsor without further notice.

If a Prize winner is under the age of majority in their province of residence, the Declaration and Release Form required to claim the Prize must be signed by a parent/legal guardian (as described below). If the selected entrant for the Prize forfeits the Prize, it may be awarded to another entrant, at the sole option of the Sponsor.

The Sponsor reserves the right, in the event that the Prize, or any component of the Prize, cannot be awarded as described for any reason, to substitute the same for another prize or component of equal or greater value, without liability.

The Winner must provide proof of use of the foregoing to the Sponsor’s agency by August 7, 2018, otherwise the winner shall return the $10,000 to the Sponsor’s agency.

The Sponsor will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact a selected entrant.

5. CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE

Prize claims are subject to verification. To be declared the winner, the selected entrant (or his/her parent or legal guardian, if the selected entrant is under the age of majority in his/her province of residence) must answer correctly, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill-testing question posed by telephone at the number provided during registration for the Contest or email at the email address provided during registration for the Contest. The selected entrant will also be required to sign a Declaration and Release Form (the “Release Form”) (or, if the selected entrant(s) is under the age of majority in his/her province of residence, have his/her parent or legal guardian sign such Release Form on his/her behalf) confirming compliance with the Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize, as awarded, without substitution, and releasing the Sponsor, the Contest Group, Facebook, the independent contest organization and each of their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, parents, subsidiaries, affiliated and related companies, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from any liability in connection with any Prize or the Contest.

The selected entrant must return a signed Release Form within thirty (30) days of receipt, or he/she will be disqualified from receiving the Prize and another entrant will be selected from the remaining eligible entrants until such time as a winner is chosen or there are no more eligible entrants, whichever comes first. The Sponsor will contact the Prize winner within thirty (30) days of receiving his/her signed Release Form to arrange delivery of the Prize within 6-8 weeks.

The refusal by any potential winner to accept a Prize (or any portion thereof) release and forever discharges the Released Parties of all obligations related to the Prize, including delivery. If a potential winner is found to be ineligible, declines to accept the Prize, or in the event that the Prize confirmation or Prize itself is returned undeliverable, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternative eligible entrant may be randomly selected from the remaining eligible entries at Sponsor’s sole discretion.
