(5) WINNER SELECTION:
No one is a winner unless and until the Sponsor official confirms him or her as the winner in accordance with these Official Rules. On June 16, 2023 a random draw from amongst all eligible Entries received will be conducted at the offices of the Contest Sponsor, or at such other location in Ontario as the Contest Sponsor may determine. The Selected Entrant will be drawn and will be contacted by a Contest Sponsor on Instagram through direct message. The Selected Entrant must respond to the message and provide a valid mailing address, phone number and email address. If the Selected Entrant does not respond to the Contest Sponsor’s message within forty eight (48) hours of the first point of contact (or attempt) by the Contest Sponsor, they will be considered to have forfeited their Prize and will be disqualified and another Entrant may be randomly selected from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with a Selected Entrant, there are no more eligible Entries or there is insufficient time to award the Prize, whichever comes first. In the event that an alternate Entrant is required to be selected, this same selection process will apply to such alternate Entrant. The Contest Sponsor will not be responsible for failed attempts to contact a Selected Entrant.
(6) CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE
Upon successful contact with the Selected Entrant, the Selected Entrant will be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question, without aid or assistance, and complete, sign and return a Declaration, Release and Waiver Form (the “Release Form”) confirming compliance with the Official Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded, without substitution, and releasing the Released Parties from any liability in connection with the Prize or the Contest before being granted the Prize.
If the Selected Entrant does not meet all of the Contest requirements, fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question, is unwilling to accept the Prize as awarded for any reason, or does not sign and return the Release Form to the Contest Sponsor within the time frame specified therein, that Selected Entrant will forfeit their Prize and the Contest Sponsor shall be entitled (but not obligated) to select another Entrant from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with an Entrant, there are no more eligible Entries, or there is insufficient time to award the Prize, whichever comes first. In the event that an alternate Selected Entrant is required to be selected, the same above-noted process will apply. The Contest Sponsor is not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact any Selected Entrant.
