4. HOW TO ENTER:
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. MAKING A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE OR OTHERWISE IMPACT YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING IN THIS CONTEST. There are two (2) ways to earn a maximum of one (1) Entry (each, an “Entry” and collectively the “Entries”) in the Contest, as follows:
The Contest Parties and each of their respective agents, employees, directors, successors, and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) are not responsible for, and accept no liability whatsoever in relation to, any late, lost, misdirected, delayed, incomplete or incompatible Entries/Requests (all of which are void). An Entry/Request may be rejected if, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, the Entry is not submitted and received in accordance with these Rules.
5. ENTRY LIMIT:
There is a limit of one (1) Entry per person (regardless of the method of entry). For greater certainty and the avoidance of any doubt, you can only use one (1) email address to enter the Contest. If it is discovered by the Sponsor (using any evidence or other information made available to or otherwise discovered by the Sponsor) that any person has attempted to: (i) obtain more than one (1) Entry (regardless of the method of entry); and/or (ii) use multiple names, multiple identities, multiple e-mail addresses, any automated, macro, script, robotic or other system(s) or program(s), and/or any other means not in keeping with the Sponsor’s interpretation of the letter and spirit of these Rules to enter or otherwise participate in or to disrupt the Contest; then he/she may be disqualified from the Contest in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor.
All Entries, Requests and entrants are subject to verification at any time and for any reason. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility (in a form acceptable to the Sponsor – including, without limitation, government issued photo identification): (i) for the purposes of verifying an individual’s eligibility to participate in this Contest; (ii) for the purposes of verifying the eligibility and/or legitimacy of any Entry, Request and/or other information entered (or purportedly entered) for the purposes of this Contest; and/or (iii) for any other reason the Sponsor deems necessary, in its sole and absolute discretion, for the purposes of administering the Contest in accordance with the Sponsor’s interpretation of the letter and spirit of these Rules. Failure to provide such proof to the complete satisfaction of the Sponsor within the timeline specified by the Sponsor may result in disqualification in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. The sole determinant of the time for the purposes of the Contest will be the official time-keeping device(s) used by the Sponsor.
7. THE PRIZES:
There will be four (4) Prizes (each, a “Prize” and collectively, the “Prizes”) available to be won. There will be one (1) Prize per Entry Period. Each Prize consists of $700 CAD in Kruger Products coupons that are redeemable at participating Canadian retailers. Use of coupons (including expiry date) is subject to the terms and conditions of the issuer. A year’s supply of Kruger Products tissue products is calculated as: (i) $300 CAD in Cashmere® Bathroom Tissue; (ii) $150 CAD in Scotties®’ Facial Tissue; and (iii) $250 CAD in SpongeTowels® Paper Towels.
Each Prize must be accepted as awarded and is not transferable, assignable or convertible to cash (except as may be specifically permitted by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion). No substitutions are permitted, except at Sponsor’s option. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to substitute a Prize with a prize of equal or greater retail value, including, without limitation, but at Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, a cash award.
There is a limit of one (1) Prize per person.
None of the Released Parties makes any representation or offers any warranty, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of any Prize awarded in connection with the Contest. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each confirmed winner understands and acknowledges that he or she may not seek reimbursement or pursue any legal or equitable remedy from either the Sponsor or any of the Released Parties should the Prize fail to be fit for its purpose or is in any way unsatisfactory.
8. GRAND PRIZE WINNER SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND CONFIRMATION PROCESSES:
On each Draw Date specified above in Rule 2 (each, a “Draw Date”) in Toronto, ON at approximately 10:00:00 a.m. ET, one (1) eligible entrant will be selected by random draw from among all eligible Entries received during the Entry Period immediately preceding the applicable Draw Date. ENTRIES DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY CARRY FORWARD FROM ONE ENTRY PERIOD TO BE INCLUDED IN ANY SUBSEQUENT ENTRY PERIOD(S). The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received in accordance with these Rules during each Entry Period.
The Sponsor or its designated representative will make a minimum of three (3) attempts to contact each eligible winner within five (5) business days of the applicable Draw Date. If an eligible winner does not properly respond within the timeframe outlined above, or if there is a return of any notification as undeliverable; then he/she may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, be disqualified (and, if disqualified, will forfeit all rights to the applicable Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and time permitting, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries for the applicable Entry Period (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such newly selected eligible winner).
NO ONE IS A WINNER UNLESS AND UNTIL THE SPONSOR OFFICIALLY CONFIRMS THEM AS A WINNER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE RULES. BEFORE BEING DECLARED AS A CONFIRMED PRIZE WINNER, each eligible winner will be required to: (a) correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question without mechanical or other aid (which may, in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor, be administered online, by e-mail or other electronic means, by telephone, or in the Sponsor’s form of declaration and release); and (b) sign and return within ten (10) business days of notification the Sponsor’s declaration and release form, which (among other things): (i) confirms compliance with these Rules; (ii) acknowledges acceptance of the Prize (as awarded); (iii) releases the Released Parties from any and all liability in connection with the Contest, their participation therein and/or the awarding and use/misuse of the Prize or any portion thereof; (iv) agrees to indemnify the Released Parties against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising from use of their Entry; and (v) agrees to the publication, reproduction and/or other use of their name, city and province/territory of residence, voice, statements about the Contest and/or photograph or other likeness without further notice or compensation, in any publicity or advertisement carried out by or on behalf of the Sponsor in any manner or medium whatsoever, including print, broadcast or the Internet. If an eligible winner: (a) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (b) fails to return the properly executed Contest documents within the specified time; (c) cannot accept (or is unwilling to accept) the Prize (as awarded) for any reason; and/or (d) is determined to be in violation of these Rules (all as determined by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion); then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and time permitting, to randomly select an alternate eligible entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries for the applicable Entry Period (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such newly selected eligible winner).
