The Contest Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility (in a form acceptable to the Contest Sponsor – including, without limitation, government issued photo identification): (i) for the purposes of verifying an Entrant’s eligibility to participate in this Contest; (ii) for the purposes of verifying the eligibility and/or legitimacy of an Entry entered (or purportedly entered) for the purposes of this Contest; and/or (iii) for any other reason the Contest Sponsor deems necessary, in its sole discretion, for the purposes of administering this Contest in accordance with these Official Rules. Failure to provide such proof to the satisfaction of the Contest Sponsor in a timely manner may result in disqualification of the Entrant, in the sole discretion of the Contest Sponsor. By entering the Contest, each Entrant agrees to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Contest Sponsor, which are final with respect to all matters relating to the Contest.
All prizes may be referred to herein as a “Prize” or, collectively, as “Prizes.” There is one (1) Prize available to be won, consisting of a Toronto FC 2020 Unity Kit with an approximate retail value of $195.
A Prize Winner is not entitled to any difference between the actual retail value of the Prize and the approximate retail value of the Prize as stated herein. Only the items listed above as a Prize are provided under this Contest as a Prize. Any and all incidental costs and expenses associated with any Prize, or use of any Prize, that are not specifically referred to herein as being included in such Prize, including, but not limited to, installation of any Prize, expenses, operational fees and maintenance, shall be the sole responsibility of the Prize’s Winner.
Each Prize Winner must follow all directions of the Contest Sponsor or its authorized representative with respect to a Prize they are selected for, or any aspect thereof. Failure to do so may result in termination of participation, or continued participation, in the Prize or any aspect thereof.
Each Prize, as outlined above, must be accepted as awarded, without substitution, and is not transferrable, refundable, for resale or, where applicable, convertible to cash or other tender. THE CONTEST SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, IN THE EVENT THAT A PRIZE, OR ANY COMPONENT OF A PRIZE, CANNOT BE AWARDED AS DESCRIBED HEREIN FOR ANY REASON RELATING TO CONTEST SPONSOR (AND NOT WINNER), AT ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TO SUBSTITUTE THE SAME FOR ANOTHER PRIZE OR COMPONENT OF SIMILAR VALUE, WITHOUT NOTICE OR LIABILITY. In the event that a substitute prize (or prize component) is awarded, such prize (or prize component) must be accepted as awarded and cannot be exchanged for cash (where applicable) or otherwise. By accepting a Prize, or a substitute prize, each winner agrees to waive all recourse against Contest Sponsor if a Prize (or substitute prize) or a component thereof does not prove satisfactory, either in whole or in part.
The odds of winning a Prize will depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period.
(5) WINNER SELECTION:
There will be one (1) random draw on each Draw Date during the Contest Period (each, a “Prize Draw”). Each Prize Draw will be from among all eligible Entries received during the Contest Period. Each Prize Draw will be held at the offices of MLSE at 50 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario.
Prize Draws will take place at approximately 10:00AM on August 20, 2020. The Prize Draws shall be in accordance with these Official Rules. Contest Sponsor reserves the right to reschedule any Prize Draw at any time and for any reason without prior notice or liability.
Each Selected Entrant for each respective Prize Draw will be contacted by the Contest Sponsor following each Prize Draw via contact information provided in the App. If a Selected Entrant cannot be contacted or does not respond to the Contest Sponsor’s email within seven (7) days of the first attempted contact by the Contest Sponsor, they will be considered to have forfeited their entitlement to the corresponding Prize for the Entry Period and will be disqualified, and another Entrant may be selected from the remaining eligible Entries in the same manner as described above 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 for which an Entrant is being selected, whichever comes first. In the event that an alternate Entrant is required to be selected, this same Winner Selection process, outlined in this Rule 5, will apply to such alternate Entrant. Contest Sponsor is not responsible, for any reason whatsoever, for any failed attempts to contact a selected Entrant and shall have no liability or responsibility towards any Selected Entrant who could not be contacted in accordance with these Official Rules.
No telephone contact, email or other correspondence in association with the Contest will be entered into except with the Selected Entrant.
(6) CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE
To be declared a winner (“Winner”), the Selected Entrant must answer correctly, without assistance of any kind, whether mechanical or otherwise, a mathematical skill-testing question provided by the Contest Sponsor. Each Selected Entrant will also be required to sign 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 his/her Prize.
If the Selected Entrant does not meet all of the Contest requirements, fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question, refuses to provide the contact information requested by the Contest Sponsor or does not sign and return the Release Form to the Contest Sponsor within the time frame outlined, that Selected Entrant will forfeit their Prize and the Contest Sponsor shall be entitled to select another Entrant from the remaining eligible Entries until such time as contact is made with an Entrant or there are no more eligible Entries, whichever comes first. This process may continue until the Prize has been awarded or there is insufficient time to permit the awarding of the Prize. The Contest Sponsor is not responsible, whether as a result of human error or otherwise, for any failure to contact a Selected Entrant.
The Release Form cannot be amended or altered in any way, and must be signed and returned by a Selected Entrant without any changes to its terms. Any changes to the terms of the Release Form will result in disqualification of the Selected Entrant at Contest Sponsor’s sole discretion. If a selected Entrant elects to amend, alter or change any of the terms, or if they refuses to sign, or return, the Release Form without any changes, alternations or amendments, the Selected Entrant hereby agrees that the Selected Entrant’s Entry shall be declared void by Contest Sponsor and any entitlement to a Prize shall be voluntarily forfeited, and an alternate Entrant may be selected by random draw in the same manner as described in Rule 5 of these Official Rules.
The Contest Sponsor will contact the Winner following receipt of his/her signed Release Form and provide instructions to Winner on how to access the Prize via the MLSE mobile application.
In the event of a conflict between these Official Rules and any instructions or interpretations of these Official Rules given by an employee of the Contest Sponsor regarding the Contest, these Official Rules shall prevail. In the event of any discrepancy or inconsistency between the terms and conditions of these Official Rules and disclosures or other statements contained in any Contest-related materials, the terms and conditions of these Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control.
By submitting an Entry into this Contest, each Entrant confirms his or her understanding of and compliance with these Official Rules. Each Entrant, and his/her representatives, heirs, next of kin or assignees (“Entrant’s Representatives”), hereby releases and holds the Released Parties harmless from any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind to the Entrant, Entrant’s Representatives or any other person, including personal injury, death or property damage, resulting in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, from acceptance, possession, use or misuse of the Prize, participation in the Contest, any breach of the Official Rules, or in any Prize-related activity. The Entrant and Entrant’s Representatives agree to fully indemnify the Released Parties from any and all claims by third parties relating to the Contest, without limitation.
