Whole Heart & Home “Amazon Gift Card Giveaway” Official Rules
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
Open only to legal residents of the United States of America who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older. The following persons are not eligible to enter the Giveaway or win a prize: sponsor’s employees, contractors, directors, officers and representatives of Sponsor, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, marketing/promotion agencies, and their immediate family (spouse, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and step-children) and household members (people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year) of each such individual are not eligible to participate in the Giveaway.
Void where prohibited by law.
1. Giveaway PERIOD: October 18, 2017 at or after 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) – December 20, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET. By participating, you agree to these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor which are final and binding in all respects and not subject to appeal.
3. ENTRY RESTRICTIONS: LIMIT OF ONE (1) (BASE) ENTRY PER PERSON. For greater certainty, if an individual has more than one email address, that person may only have one base entry for one of their email addresses and may not enter again using another email address. If two or more individuals share an email address, only one individual may enter using that email address. Use of any device or artifice to violate the preceding entry limit or to obtain Bonus Entries (as discussed in Rule 4 below) will result in voiding of all but the initial entry or Bonus Entry (if applicable). Sponsor reserves the right in their sole discretion to void all entries/Bonus Entries and disqualify entrant altogether if Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that entrant has engaged in blatant, egregious, or repeated violations of the entry limit. Sponsor’s computer is the official clock for all purposes of the Giveaway.
Sponsor, and its agencies are not responsible for late, lost, illegible/garbled, corrupted, incomplete, inaccessible, damaged, or misdirected entries or for unrecorded or improperly recorded Bonus Entries, all of which are void. Sponsor and its agencies also assume no responsibility for (a) any incomplete, incorrect, or inaccurate information, whether caused by website users, tampering, hacking, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Giveaway or by any technical or human error; (b) any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation, or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of the Giveaway Website or any entries or Bonus Entries, including filtering or other operation of a social media platform; and (c) any problems or technical malfunctions of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers, or providers, computer equipment, software, programming, or failure of email on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or at any website or any combination thereof, or for injury or damage to entrant’s or to any person’s computer or mobile device (or any information/materials stored therein) related to or resulting from downloading materials from any website or participating in the Giveaway.
Any dispute as to identity of entrant will be resolved by Sponsor based on its determination in its sole discretion of who is the authorized account holder of the email address used to submit the entry. The “authorized account holder” means the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. Any dispute as to identity of a Bonus Entrant will be resolved by Sponsor based on its determination in its sole discretion of who submitted the (base) entry corresponding to the Bonus Entry. Submission of entry (or taking an action required to receive Bonus Entry) does not constitute proof of receipt of same or proof of entry/receipt of Bonus Entry. Sponsor will acknowledge receipt of entry and perhaps may acknowledge receipt of Bonus Entry; but, such acknowledgment merely indicates that entry/Bonus Entry (if applicable) has been received and does not constitute any representation that the entry/Bonus Entry (if applicable) is eligible or that the person submitting same has been selected as a potential prize winner in the Giveaway.
4. BONUS ENTRIES: Bonus Entries may be received by taking the following actions:
Liking/Following a Whole Heart & Home Page on Social Media. One (1) Bonus Entry may be received by ‘liking’ Whole Heart & Home on Facebook, @wholeheartandhome (https://www.facebook.com/wholeheartandhome), One (1) Bonus Entry may be received by ‘following’ Whole Heart & Home on Instagram, @wholeheartandhome (https://www.instagram.com/wholeheartandhome/), One (1) Bonus Entry may be received by ‘following’ Whole Heart & Home on Twitter, @WholeHeartNHome (https://twitter.com/WholeHeartNHome). To receive Bonus Entries, the entrant must ‘like’ or ‘follow’ the Whole Heart & Home page as of 11:59 p.m. ET on December 20, 2017. There is a limit of one (1) Bonus Entry for ‘liking’ or ‘following’ the Whole Heart & Home page per entrant per social media platform regardless of the number of social media accounts that a given person may have on a given social media platform.
Refer-A-Friend. Five (5) Bonus Entries will be received if an eligible person (as defined above) enters the Giveaway, prior to the entry deadline of 11:59 p.m. ET on December 20, 2017, using the URL provided to a given entrant. (For the avoidance of doubt, merely sharing the URL will not result in receipt of Bonus Entry; the person with whom the URL is shared must be eligible under these Official Rules and enter the Giveaway him/herself. Moreover, if the URL is not used, an entrant will not receive Bonus Entries in conjunction with an eligible person entering the Giveaway.) To receive Bonus Entries, entrant MUST include the hashtag #SPONSORED whenever sharing the URL so as to indicate that Sponsor is offering Bonus Entries in this Giveaway as an incentive for the entrant to engage in such sharing activity. It is strongly recommended that the entrant only share the URL with individuals that he/she knows personally and sincerely believes are interested in this Giveaway and Whole Heart & Home. Entrants are also cautioned to secure the consent of persons BEFORE sharing the URL with them. Each eligible person who enters the Giveaway via using an entrant’s URL will result in the entrant that shared the URL receiving five (5) Bonus Entries; a maximum of twenty-five (25) Bonus Entries are available via the Refer-A-Friend method.
In all cases, receipt of Bonus Entries is conditioned upon first entering the Giveaway as per Rule 2 above.
5. RANDOM DRAWING/NOTIFICATION OF SELECTED ENTRANTS/DETERMINATION OF POTENTIAL PRIZE WINNERS: On December 21, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. ET, Sponsor will conduct a random drawing from among all eligible entries (i.e., entries and Bonus Entries) received. Sponsor will notify selected entrants via email. If selected entrant cannot be contacted by Sponsor despite commercially reasonable efforts to do so, such selected entrant will be disqualified and an alternate entrant will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries (i.e., entries and Bonus Entries) received. If the potential prize winner is determined by Sponsor to be ineligible or not in full compliance with these Official Rules, prize will be forfeited without compensation and an alternate entrant will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries (i.e., entries and Bonus Entries) received.
6. PRIZES/ODDS OF WINNING: One (1) GRAND PRIZE: one (1) $500 Amazon Gift Card. Approximate Retail Value of Grand Prize = $500 CDN. Should actual value of Grand Prize be less than stated Approximate Retail Value, winner will not receive the difference in cash or otherwise.
TOTAL APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE OF ALL PRIZES = CDN $500.00
Limit of one (1) prize of any kind per family/address/household. Prize must be accepted “AS IS” and does not come with any warranty or guarantee of any kind. Prizes will only be shipped to a street address in the United States of America. Prizes are not transferable or redeemable for cash and must be accepted as awarded, with no substitutions of any kind. However, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute advertised prize if it is unavailable for any reason, for a prize of comparable value. All prize details are at the Sponsor’s sole discretion. Actual prize may differ from depiction of same in Giveaway advertising, and Sponsor and its agencies disclaim any and all liability in conjunction therewith. Any unspecified expenses or costs associated with prize acceptance and use are the prize winner’s sole responsibility. Odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible entries (i.e., entries and Bonus Entries) received.
7. CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION: By accepting prize, to the fullest extent permitted by law, winner agrees to the use of his/her name, image, photo, likeness, and other indicia of persona for advertising/trade/publicity purposes by Sponsor and its designees without further compensation or notice. The preceding includes but is not limited to Sponsor’s possible use of photos of prize winner and the prize (as applicable) awarded to him/her as a prize on Sponsor’s website, social media accounts and/or otherwise. By participating, entrant releases and agrees to hold harmless Sponsor, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, from any and all liability arising from participating in the Giveaway or the acceptance, possession, receipt or use/misuse of any prize. If the Giveaway cannot be conducted as originally planned due to any cause beyond Sponsor’s control (e.g., computer virus, act of fraud, natural disaster, civil commotion, riot, strike, or governmental action), Sponsor may cancel/suspend/modify the Giveaway and randomly select entrants (who may, in turn, become potential prize winners, as set forth in Rule 5 above) from among all eligible entries (i.e., entries and Bonus Entries) received prior to the action taken by Sponsor or otherwise in a manner determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion to be fair, appropriate, and consistent with these Official Rules; notice of such action by Sponsor will be posted at the Giveaway Website. Tampering with the Giveaway or acting in violation of these Official Rules will result in disqualification (tampering expressly includes but is not limited to use of the Refer-A-Friend method of receiving Bonus Entries in a manner which is not in compliance with these Official Rules); but, disqualification shall not represent the sole remedy available to Sponsor.
Sponsor’s failure to enforce any provision of these Rules in a given instance is NOT a waiver of such provision. If an individual’s entry is corrupted, damaged, or destroyed (or, in the case of Bonus Entry, unrecorded or improperly recorded) due to error or for any other reason, such individual’s recovery is limited to issuance of a replacement entry/Bonus Entry (as applicable), time permitting and if otherwise feasible; if time does not permit or not otherwise feasible, Sponsor and its agencies shall have no liability in conjunction with same. For United States of America residents any dispute or claim regarding the Giveaway will be resolved pursuant to laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada without regard to conflicts of law principles (of Ontario or of any other jurisdiction). All such entrants consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts located in the Province of Ontario and, in doing so, waive any right of inconvenient forum, forum non conveniens or the like.
In all cases, entrants further agree that their recovery in any such action shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs of entering the Giveaway (if any), with any and all other damages (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees) being expressly waived. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by, or associated with, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Sponsor: Whole Heart & Home, 6069 Ernest Cres, Niagara Falls, ON L2H 0H9.
