The Grand Prize must be accepted as awarded and is not transferable or convertible to cash. No substitutions except at the Sponsor’s option. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize or a prize component with one of equal or greater quality or value. Taxes on prize may be the sole responsibility of the winners. If the winner is a minor in his/her province, territory of residence, such winner’s parent or legal guardian must accept the prize on his/her behalf.
The potential Grand Prize winner will be selected based on a random draw, consisting of all eligible entries. Once initially contacted by the Sponsor, the potential Grand Prize winner has 72 hours (the “Prize Claim Deadline”) to respond and claim their prize. In the instance that the potential Grand Prize winner does not meet the Prize Claim Deadline, the Sponsor has the option to select a new potential winner. This process may continue until the Sponsor selects a potential Grand Prize winner who meets the Prize Claim Deadline.
The random draw will be completed and the winners will be contacted on our around January 4, 2017. If you have not been contacted by this date, you may assume that your entry is not a winner, unless the first potential Grand Prize winner does not meet the Prize Claim Deadline.
Odds of an entry being selected as the winner of the Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.
