By entering into Spread the Word or Take Action Giant Plastic Tap Contests (collectively, “GPT Contests”), you may be eligible to win certain prizes. The GPT Contests are void where prohibited or restricted by law and are subject to all applicable laws. No purchase is necessary to enter GPT Contests and win prizes.
GPT Contests are administered by Von Wong with prizes donated by GPT sponsors (“Sponsors”). These rules (the “GPT Contest Rules”) govern your participation in any GPT Contest. By entering into a GPT Content, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by the GPT Contest Rules.
GPT Contests are only open to participants who submit a valid entry through the Spread the Word or Taking Action platforms and have reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside as of the date of entry. GPT Contests are not open to employees, shareholders, officers, directors, agents or representatives of Von Wong or Sponsors, or their parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, and/or their representatives, anyone connected with the production or administration of the GPT Contests, and the immediate family members (mother, father, brother, sister, daughter, son or spouse, regardless of where they live) of and those domiciled with (whether or not related) any of the foregoing.
How to Enter GPT Contests.
You may enter the GPT Contests through completing the required actions for eligibility set forth on the Giant Plastic Tap Spread the Word or Taking Action platforms. Although you can participate in as many actions as you like, there is a limit of one (1) entry per person for each GPT Contest prize regardless of method of entry; use of multiple email addresses to enter GPT Contests is strictly prohibited.
Entries must be received by Von Wong by the end of the applicable period indicated for each GPT Contest prize in order to be eligible to win that prize. Timing of entry receipt will be determined solely by Von Wong.
Von Wong and Sponsors are not responsible for late, lost, delayed, stolen, incomplete, falsified, void, corrupted, garbled, misdirected, or otherwise unintelligible entries or for any problems, bugs or malfunctions you may encounter when submitting your entry. Such entries are void and will not be accepted. We reserve the right to disqualify incomplete entries. Proof of sending an entry is not proof of receipt by Von Wong. All entries submitted become the sole property of Von Wong and will not be acknowledged or returned.
Selection of GPT Contest Winners.
Each eligible entry received will be entered into the random drawing for the GPT Contest daily prize. The random drawings for each GPT Contest will be supervised by Von Wong. For each prize, one entrant will be selected at random from all eligible entries received during the applicable period.
Notification of Prize Winners.
Attempts will be made to contact selected entrants by phone and/or email. All selected entrants will be required to respond (as directed) to the phone and/or email notification within 7 days of the first attempt made to contact the entrant. Before being confirmed as a prize winner, (a) if you reside in Canada, you must correctly answer an unaided, time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question to be administered by email or by telephone at a pre-arranged, mutually convenient time, at Von Wong or the Sponsor’s discretion; and (b) must otherwise be in compliance with these GPT Contest Rules.
If a selected entrant: (i) cannot be reached within the time prescribed; (ii) fails (if required) to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (iii) cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason; or (iv) is otherwise not in compliance with the GPT Contest Rules, the entrant will be disqualified, will not receive any prize and an alternate entrant will be randomly selected in accordance with the GPT Contest Rules from among the remaining eligible entries until such time as a winner is confirmed for that prize. Prizes will only be delivered to confirmed winners.
At the outset of the GPT Contests, the applicable prize available to be won will be announced along with the approximate retail value for that prize. An entrant is only eligible to win one (1) prize. Prizes are subject to the terms and conditions applicable to that prize, are non-refundable and non-transferable, cannot be combined with any other special offer or promotion and must be accepted as awarded. Prizes may not be exchanged for cash value or substituted, except that Sponsors reserve the right in their sole discretion to substitute a prize with either the cash value of the prize, or a prize or prizes of equal or greater value. Applicable taxes (if any) and any other costs or expenses associated with the prizes or the use thereof not expressly stated as being part of the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. Sponsors will deliver the prize directly to the participant without Von Wong’s involvement and questions regarding the delivery of any prize should be directed to the applicable Sponsor.
Odds of Winning.
The odds of winning a prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the applicable GPT Contest entry period.
GPT Contests are Subject to the GPT Contest Rules. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by these GPT Contest Rules. All decisions of Von Wong are final and binding. Von Wong reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entrant they find to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the GPT Contests, or violating these GPT Contest Rules.
Von Wong and our Sponsors assume no responsibility for: (i) late, lost, delayed, stolen, misdirected, incomplete, unreadable, inaccurate, void, corrupted, garbled or unintelligible entries or communications regardless of the method of transmission; (ii) computer system, telephone or computer hardware, software or other technical, mobile device or computer malfunctions, lost connections, disconnections, delays or transmission errors; (iii) data corruption, theft, destruction, unauthorized access to or alteration of entry or other materials; (iv) any injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including damage to an entrant’s or any other person’s computer or other property, caused by the prize or resulting from acceptance, possession or use of a prize, or from participation in GPT Contests; (v) any printing, typographical, administrative or technological errors in any materials associated with the GPT Contests; or (vi) any other errors whether caused by any equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the GPT Contests or any technical or human error that may occur in the processing of entries in the GPT Contests.
Von Wong reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, modify or suspend GPT Contests for any reason, including without limitation, if GPT Contests are not capable of running as planned because of circumstances such as a virus, bug, computer problem, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures or other causes beyond Von Wong’s control affecting the administration, security, fair administration or proper play of GPT Contests, without prior notice. Von Wong may prohibit an entrant from participating in GPT Contests or winning a prize if, in our sole discretion, we determine such entrant is tampering with the entry process or attempting to undermine the legitimate operation of the GPT Contests in any way by cheating, hacking, deception, or any other unfair playing practices, or otherwise violating these GPT Contest Rules. Use of any automated system including robotic or form filling software to enter or participate is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification. Von Wong may disqualify, at our sole discretion, any entries we believe are created by an automated system.
Limitation of Liability.
To the extent permitted by law, in no event will Von Wong or Sponsors be responsible for any damages or losses of any kind, including direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages arising out of or relating to an entrant’s participation in a GPT Contest or any prizes won or not won.
Publication of Winners.
By accepting a GPT Contest prize, each winner grants to Von Wong and Sponsors the right to use and publish (worldwide and online) any prize winner’s name, image, likeness, hometown name and/or prize information for promotional purposes relating to the GPT campaign without notification, review or approval, and without receiving any additional consideration or compensation.
Release and Indemnification.
By accepting a prize, each winner agrees to release and indemnify Von Wong and Sponsors, and their parents, affiliates and subsidiaries, together with the respective directors, employees, officers, licensees, licensors, representatives and agents of each, including without limitation, any person or entity associated with the production or administration of a GPT Contest, (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability for any injury, loss or damage of any kind to persons, including death, and property, arising from or in connection with awarding, receipt, possession, use or misuse of any prize, participation in a GPT Contest, or any GPT Contest-related activities.
If any provision of the GPT Contest Rules is held by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, that provision is to be deleted, and the other provisions remain in effect and are valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
The GPT Contests are governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and Canada, without respect to conflict of law principles. By participating in a GPT Contest, you agree that any and all disputes that cannot be resolved between the parties, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the GPT Contests or these GPT Contest Rules, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, exclusively before a court located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
By entering a GPT Contest, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information by Von Wong for the purposes of administering the GPT Contests, contacting selected entrants and otherwise as permitted or required by law.
The GPT Contests are not sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with any social media networks or third-party platforms that are used to share or promote the GPT Contests. You understand that you are providing your information to the owner of the GPT Contest and not to the applicable network/platform.
