Contest rules and regulations:
1.1. Eligibility: The 2016 Bicycle Valet Contest is open to all residents of Canada except those residing in the province of Quebec, and excluding employees and Board Members of BEST and our sponsors.
1.2. Need not be present to win, contest can also be entered online at http://thebicyclevalet.ca/win-prizes/, odds of winning depend on total number of entries received. Potential winners will need to answer an easy skill-testing question in order to claim a prize.
1.3. Contest Period: Starting on June 5, 2016, until September 25, 2016, customers may participate in the Contest by either completing their Bicycle Valet claim stub after having used The Bicycle Valet, or by filling out an entry on http://thebicyclevalet.ca/win-prizes/
1.4. Contest Entry: Upon completion and submission of the claim stub or contest entry form on http://newbicyclevalet.thebicyclevalet.ca eligible participants will be entered into the Contest for one (1) chance to win (i.e. one entry) the Prize.
1.5. Contest Entry Restrictions: Participants are restricted to two (2) entries (via completion of Contest entry form on http://thebicyclevalet.ca/win-prizes/ or from submitting their Bicycle Valet claim stub) per person, per calendar month. Entries indicating the same email address will be considered, for purposes of the Contest, to belong to the same participant and therefore are subject to the above restriction. Any excess entries will be invalid for purposes of the Contest draw.
1.6. Awarding of Prize: The Prize will be awarded to the participant whose contact information (name, email address) has been given by the entrant at time of completion of the claim stub or online entry form and who has complied with these Rules.
2.1) The Contest Period will be as such: participants will be allowed to submit entries starting June 1, 2016 until September 25, 2016. Submissions falling outside of this range will not be accepted or treated as a valid entry.
Contest draws are not exclusive of each other. Entrants in each Contest Period who do not win will remain in the Contest for each subsequent draw, until the last draw takes place, or until they win a prize. Upon winning a prize, all prior entries of that contestant will be removed. Contestants may re-enter in subsequent Contest Periods.
Once a week two participants will be randomly chosen to win two free cones/cups from Earnest Ice Cream. And once a month, there will be a grand prize of Earnest merchandise (e.g. t-shirt), a take home pint of ice cream, and coupon for two free cones (to be picked up from one of Earnest’s location).
2.2) Odds: The odds of being randomly selected to win a Prize depend on the total number of eligible entries received during each applicable Contest Period. Odds of winning will decrease as the number of entries received increases; received number of entries will increase as the Contest proceeds throughout the year.
2.3) Prize Draw: The Prizes (sixteen in total) will be awarded by computer generated random draws (eleven in total) from all eligible Contest entries received during the applicable Contest Period, by 11:59pm on three days before the draw will take place. Entries submitted after 11:59pm three days before each draw will be entered into the next draw, and each subsequent draw, unless the participant wins, at which point the entry, and all prior entries of the contestant, will be removed. Each draw will be held at 1:00 pm at 209 – 175 East Broadway, once a week from June to September.
2.4 Notification of Selection: All participants will be sent an email notifying them of the names of the winners, and winners’ names will be posted on the Bicycle Valet website. By entering the contest you consent to these provisions. Participants who do not win may choose to opt out of such future mass notification emails. Potential Winners will still be notified individually.
The selected Participants will be contacted individually by email (using the contact information provided by Participant at time of entering the Contest) up to three (3) times within the 14 days after the Draw, or until a response is received by BEST, whichever comes first. If the selected Participant cannot be contacted in that time, another Participant will be randomly selected and the initial selected Participant will be disqualified and will have no recourse towards BEST or anyone involved in the Contest.
In order to win, the selected Participant must first correctly answer, unaided, a time-limited, mathematical, skill-testing question to be administered on the Declaration and Release Form, which he or she will be required to sign, confirming compliance with the Contest Rules, acceptance of the Prize as awarded and releasing BEST from all liability relating to the Contest. No substitution for, or transfer of the Prize, will be allowed. The selected entrant will have seven (7) days from the date of receipt to return a signed copy of the Declaration and Release Form to BEST or its representative, at which time the prize can be picked up. This can take place at 204-175 East Broadway, Vancouver, BC, during regular office hours, or at a mutually agreed upon (between the participant and BEST or its representative) time and place. If the selected Participant does not do so within this period of time, another Participant will be randomly selected and the initial selected Participant will be disqualified and will have no recourse towards BEST or anyone involved in the Contest.
