WINNER DETERMINATION AND ODDS OF WINNING
1. At the end of the Contest Period, entries will be sorted by pet-type (dog, cat, small pet). One (1) winner will be chosen through random selection for each pet-type. Each entry will receive an assigned number and the winner will be selected through a random number generator online tool. Odds of winning the Prize for the draw in which you are entered depends on the total number of eligible entries received for that same draw (i.e. for the same pet-type) during the Contest Period.
- Once an entrant has been selected for a Prize, he/she (the “Selected Entrant”) will be contacted by email during the period December 16, 2015 to December 18, 2015. If the Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond within two (2) days after being contacted, or declines the Prize, then an alternate entrant from the pool of eligible entries for that pet-type 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 Sponsor runs out of eligible entries, whichever occurs first. Any incorrect contact information that prevents the Sponsor from being able to reach a potential winner may cause such Prize to be forfeited and Sponsor will then attempt to contact an alternate entrant. In order to be declared a winner, the Selected Entrant must correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question, and must otherwise comply with these Rules and Regulations. If a Selected Entrant is determined by the Sponsor, in the Sponsor’s 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 December 24, 2015.
