The first entrant drawn will be eligible to win the Grand Prize. Then twenty-nine (29) entrants will be randomly selected from entrants to win a Secondary Prize. Upon an entry being drawn, the Sponsor will verify that the skill-testing question on selected entrant’s entry form has been correctly answered. If it has not, such entry will be disqualified and an alternate potential winner will be randomly selected.
The odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The odds of winning a Secondary Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period.
If, as a result of an error relating to the entry process, drawing or any other aspect of the Contest, there are more selected entrants than contemplated in these Contest Rules, there will be a random draw amongst all eligible Prize claimants after the Contest’s closing date to award the correct number of Secondary Prizes or Grand Prizes.
The Sponsor or its designated representative will make an effort to contact each selected entrant by email or telephone (using the information provided at the time of entry) within one (1) business day of the draw. If the selected entrant cannot be contacted within the timeframe outlined in the email, or there is a return of any notification as undeliverable; then the selected entrant will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible entries (in which case the forgoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new selected entrant).
Acceptance of any Secondary Prize or Grand Prize will act as a release form (the “Release”), which (i) confirms compliance with these rules; (ii) acknowledges acceptance of the prize as awarded; (iii) release the Contest Entities and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability in connection with this Contest, the selected entrant’s participation therein and/or the awarding and use/misuse of the prize or any portion thereof; and (iv) agrees to the publication, reproduction and/or other use of the selected entrant’s name, address, voice, statements about the Contest and/or photograph or other likeness without further notice or compensation, in any publicity or advertisement carried out by Sponsor in any manner whatsoever, including print, broadcast or the internet. If the selected entrant: (a) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; and/or (b) fails to accept the prize and, in doing so, doesn’t accept the terms of the Release, then they will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible entries (in which case the forgoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new selected entrant).
