PRIZE GIVE AWAY ENTRY AND HOW TO WIN
You may enter the Prize Give Away by 1) following SaskMustard on Twitter (@SKmustard) and/or Instagram (@SaskMustard) AND 2) commenting how the prize would be used if won, during the Entry Period and for each of the 12 days. Retweets/reposts and tagging friends can earn extra entries. You must comment each day for each prize you wish to be entered to win. To be entered to win the Extra Prize for a friend, you must follow the relevant post information regarding sharing the contest daily posts with a friend.
Only eligible entries that are received during the Entry Period will be eligible to win a prize. After the Entry Period, during the Prize Give Away Period (December 13-19, 2016), the Sponsor will be conducting random draws for twelve (12) eligible entrants; a random draw will be held for each of the prizes. Such random draws will be held by Sponsor electronically during the Prize Give Away Period using a website chosen by Sponsor for such purpose, and the order in which prizes will be drawn and the precise time of each draw will be determined by the Sponsor during the Prize Give Away Period.
Daily winners will be publicly announced (on SaskMustard’s Twitter and Instagram accounts) starting December 20, 2016 and ending December 31, 2016. A notice listing all twelve (12) prize winners will be placed on www.saskmustard.com on December 31, 2016. Prizes will be mailed within 30 days after a prize winner qualifies for his or her prize (provided that the prize winner provides his or her mailing address when requested by Sponsor). A potential winner may be required to sign a Declaration and Release form that among other things, confirms in writing that the winner has complied with these contest rules, releases the Sponsor from liability, and confirms the Sponsor’s right to publicize winner’s information. A winner is responsible for all applicable federal, provincial and municipal taxes. The Declaration and Release form will be sent by mail or e-mail, and must be returned to the Sponsor within five (5) business days of its receipt.
The Declaration and Release requires a potential winner to confirm, except where prohibited by law, acceptance of the prize as awarded, eligibility to participate in this contest and compliance with these rules and to release SaskMustard and their sponsors and advertising and promotional agencies, and suppliers of prizes, materials or services related to this contest, and the independent contest organization, and all of their respective employees, directors, officers, shareholders, agents, successors and assigns from any liability and damages which could arise from the awarding, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize. Failure to comply with any of the above conditions or otherwise with the rules, will result in the disqualification of the selected entrant. In this event, a new random draw from the remaining valid entries received would be performed to award the prize. Upon receipt of the Declaration and Release form, the contest organizer will notify the winner of the manner in which he/she will have to take possession of the prize. The contest organizer reserves the right to determine how the presentation of the prize will occur and this may be either a media event, by mail, or in person. No prize substitutions, transfers, or cash alternatives will be permitted, except at the sole discretion of the contest organizer or sponsor.
