TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF GRAND PRIZE:
Grand Prize must be accepted as awarded without substitution. Some restrictions may apply. The Grand Prize is non-transferable and non-assignable. In the event that a selected Grand Prize winner is unable to redeem any or all of the Grand Prize due to reasons beyond the reasonable control of the Sponsor, no compensation or substitute prize will be provided. Grand Prize may not be exactly as shown in Contest publicity or promotional materials. Gas Gift Card is subject to the Terms and Conditions provided on the reverse of the card.
INSTANT WIN PRIZES
Throughout the Contest Period, a total of ten (10) “Wipe Off Your Windshield” Instant Win Prizes will be randomly awarded. Ten (10) winning times will be randomly computer-generated throughout the Contest Period. If you are the first eligible person to successfully enter the Contest on or after one of the randomly generated times, and you receive the Instant Win Prize message, you will be an eligible winner of one (1) of the ten (10) Wipe Off Your Windshield Instant Win Prizes available to be won, each with a maximum retail value of $50 CDN. Instant Win Prizes will be awarded in the form of a Gas Gift Card with a value of $50 CDN and will be subject to the Terms and Conditions provided on the reverse of the Gift Card.
There are 10 Instant Win Prizes available to be won during the Contest Period with a total approximate retail value of $500 CDN. Instant Win Prize winners remain eligible to win the Grand Prize in the Rain‑X® Wipe Off Your Windshield Grand Prize Draw.
Sponsor reserves the right, in the event that an Instant Win Prize cannot be awarded as described for any reason, to substitute another prize of equal or greater value, without liability. The odds of receiving an Instant Win message will depend on the date and time an entrant completes a valid online registration form, and “Wipes Off the Windshield” to reveal the potential Instant Win Prize notification, and the number of online Instant Win Prizes remaining to be won at the time of Contest registration. If no one enters the Contest at the pre-determined time, the next eligible entrant to enter the Contest immediately following that predetermined time will be eligible to win. Online Instant Win prizes unclaimed on the day they become available to be won will be carried over to subsequent day(s) during the Contest Period and be available to be won by the next eligible Contest entrant to complete a valid online registration and “Wipe Off the Windshield” to reveal the potential Instant Win Prize notification.
If due to a printing, production, online, internet, computer or other error of any kind, more Instant Win Prizes are claimed than intended to be distributed or awarded according to these Official Contest Rules, then, in addition to having the right to terminate the Contest immediately, the Sponsor reserves the right, subject to the approval of the Régie in Québec, in its sole and absolute discretion, to rescind invalid Instant Win Prize claims and/or conduct a random draw from amongst all eligible claimants to award the correct number of Instant Win Prizes. In no event and under no circumstances will the Sponsor or any of the Contest Group members be liable for more than the number and type of Instant Win Prizes as stated in these Official Contest Rules. Limit one (1) Instant Win Prize per person. Limit two (2) Instant Win Prizes per household. All eligible prize message recipients will be directed to the prize claiming instructions provided on the Contest website and will be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question.
Instant Win Prize Winner(s) may be required to sign and return an eligibility and liability/publicity release within ten (10) business days of notification in order to receive his/her prize. If the selected entrant fails to return any required Contest documents within the specified time or incorrectly answers the skill-testing question administered online, he/she will forfeit the applicable Instant Win Prize and an alternate winner will be randomly selected from among all remaining eligible entrants who have not won an Instant Win Prize at Contest Closing Date.
Instant Win Prizes will be mailed directly to the mailing address provided on the Contest registration form within six (6) to eight (8) weeks of prize award. All potential Instant Win Prize Winners are subject to verification by Sponsor, whose decisions are final and binding. A “screen shot” is not proof or evidence of a winning entry and/or prize. A contestant is not a winner of any prize, even if the online win notification should so indicate, unless and until said contestant’s eligibility and potential winning entry have been verified by the Sponsor. Sponsor will not accept screen shots or other evidence of winning in lieu of its validation process. Any notification that occurs after the system has failed for any reason is deemed void and will not be honored.
GRAND PRIZE DRAW
The Wipe Off Your Windshield Grand Prize Draw: One (1) eligible Grand Prize winner will be randomly selected from amongst all eligible entries received by the Contest Closing Date by the Administrator and independent judging organization, whose decisions are final on all matters relating to this Contest, on or about March 2nd, 2020. The odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received. The selected Entrant will be notified by telephone. If the Contest Administrator attempts to contact a potential Grand Prize winner via telephone and cannot engage in a live conversation with the potential winner within a seventy-two (72) hour period from the first notification attempt, then such person may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected via a random drawing. Although the Contest Administrator may, in its sole discretion, choose to leave a message or messages on a potential winner’s voicemail service or answering machine, such messages are solely to facilitate live contact within the seventy-two (72) hour period and do not constitute a “live conversation” for purposes of these Official Rules. All notification requirements, as well as other requirements within these Official Rules, will be enforced. The selected eligible Grand Prize winner will be required to correctly answer without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by telephone. In addition, the eligible Grand Prize winner will be required to provide photo identification and will also be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance and Release form (which, among other things, confirms compliance with these Official Contest Rules and releases the Sponsor, Recochem Inc., and its dealers, their promotional partners and prize suppliers, and their respective affiliated companies, agencies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, related entities, partners, principals, representatives, agents, licensees, sponsors, affiliates, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Contest Group”) from all liability with respect to the entrant’s participation in this Contest and the awarding and use and/or misuse of the Grand Prize, and, grants the Sponsor the unrestricted right, in the Sponsor’s sole discretion, to publish, without any further notice or compensation, the name, picture, portrait, likeness, of the confirmed Grand Prize winner for advertising and promotional purposes) within ten (10) business days of notification in order to receive the Grand Prize.
If the eligible Grand Prize winner fails to return the Contest documents within the specified time or incorrectly answers the skill-testing question, he/she will forfeit the Grand Prize and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to select an alternate eligible Grand Prize winner from all remaining eligible entries. Decisions of the independent Contest administration and judging organization will be final.
