HOW TO ENTER
No purchase necessary. You have two (2) ways to enter this Contest. Those who purchase any ROYAL CANIN breed formulas from any participating PET VALU stores (subject to availability) will receive a Contest code printed on the back of a voucher that allows a quick entry into the contest; and those entrants without a Contest code will be asked to complete a short questionnaire online in order to enter the Contest. Visit www.facebook.com/petvalu during the Contest Period and click on the tab entitled “Activity Tracker Contest”. With or without a Contest code, you will need to complete the online registration form by providing the requested information including your full name, breed of dog, and contact information.
There is a limit of one (1) entry per person during the Contest Period. Multiple entries will count as (1) entry for the Prize draw. Any attempt by any participant to enter more than the allowed number of times (being once) by using multiple/different Facebook accounts, email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods, will disqualify that participant’s subsequent entries.
DETERMINING THE WINNER AND THE ODDS OF WINNING
1. At the end of the Contest Period, thirty (30) separate winners will be chosen through random selection. Each entry will receive an assigned number and the winners will be selected through a random number generator online tool. Odds of winning a Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period.
- Once an entrant has been selected for the Prize, he/she (the “Selected Entrant”) will be contacted by e-mail during the week of October 10th, 2016. If the Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond within three business (3) days after being contacted, or declines the Prize, then an alternative entrant from the pool of eligible entries will be randomly selected as the Selected Entrant. This process will be repeated until a Selected Entrant has been contacted and the Prize has been awarded in accordance with these Rules and Regulations or the Sponsors run out of eligible entries, whichever occurs first. Any incorrect contact information that prevents the Sponsors from being able to reach a potential winner may cause the Prize to be forfeited and Sponsors will then attempt to contact an alternate entrant. In order to be declared a winner, the Selected Entrant must correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question, and must otherwise comply with these Rules and Regulations. If a Selected Entrant is determined by the Sponsors, in the Sponsors’ sole discretion, to have failed to comply with these Rules and Regulations, the Selected Entrant will be disqualified from this Contest and all related entries shall be deemed null and void. The winners will be announced on Facebook on October 27th, 2016.
- At the option of the Sponsors, the Prizes will either be mailed by regular mail by way of Canada Post or sent by Purolator Courier to the winners.
- In order to be declared a winner, the Selected Entrant must: (a) sign a declaration of compliance with these Rules and Regulations and a release (including a publicity release) releasing Facebook, the Sponsors and their affiliates, franchisees and related third parties, advertising and promotional agencies and each of their respective shareholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, dealers, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) from any 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, (b) return any required documents (including the release) within the time period specified, (c) correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question, and (d) otherwise comply with these Rules and Regulations.
