All entries become the property of the Sponsor. The Sponsor, its directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively the “Released Parties”) are not responsible for late, lost, incomplete or misdirected entries, or for electronic, network, computer, hardware, software or technical malfunctions, failures or difficulties.

3. PRIZES/ODDS:

There are two (2) prizes (collectively the “Prizes” and each a “Prize”) available to be won as follows:

  • (i) One (1) Grand Prize draw consisting of:
    • A Molly Maid® Gift Certificate in the amount of $5,000.00 CDN;
  • (ii) One (1) Secondary Prize draw consisting of:
    • A Molly Maid® Gift Certificate in the amount of $2,500.00 CDN;

In the event that a winner does not reside in a territory serviced by Molly Maid®, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the potential winner shall submit an alternative cleaning service provider to the Sponsor for approval. Should the alternative cleaning service provider be approved, a gift card from the alternative cleaning service provider, in the winning amount, will be substituted for the Prize.

* The Molly Maid® Service Contractor or alternative service provider (collectively, the “Service Provider”) will be selected by the winner personally. It will be at the winner’s own discretion to select a Service Provider that they feel will best suit their individual needs. If the winner chooses to spend in excess of the gift certificate amount on cleaning services, it is up to the individual winner to pay those additional costs and taxes.

Schedule of cleaning service is to be mutually determined by the Service Provider and the winner. Restrictions and blackout dates for cleaning services may apply.

A gift certificate will be issued to the winners once all declarations and waivers have been signed off by the randomly chosen winner, and the winner is deemed an OFFICIAL WINNER. Once declared an official winner, STIHL® Limited Canada will send a Molly Maid® Gift Certificate in the name of the winner within (30) thirty days.

Any conflict, unsatisfactory work performed, or unpaid bills are exclusively between the Service Provider and the winner. The agreed upon work contract must be made between the winner and the Service Provider. STIHL® Limited Canada is not to be named in any part of the work contract. STIHL® Limited Canada will not take any responsibility for the work completed by the Service Provider, and cannot be listed in any litigation that may arise.

Odds of winning will depend on the total number of eligible entries received during the Contest Period. The Prizes must be accepted as awarded. The Prizes may not be sold, assigned or otherwise transferred, and are not convertible to cash, except at the sole discretion of the Sponsor. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute a prize in whole or in part with one of equivalent or greater retail value. The Released Parties are not responsible for, and no winner will receive, the difference between the actual value of the prize at the time of award and the stated retail value in these Official Rules or in any Contest-related correspondence or materials.

Any and all additional costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use incurred by the winner and/or their agent in claiming, accepting and/or using their prize is not the responsibility of the Released Parties.

4. WINNER SELECTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES:

At approximately 11:00:00 a.m. ET on November 5, 2019, a computerized random draw will take place in London, Ontario, to select the potential winners from among all eligible entries received during the Contest Period.

Each selected entrant will be notified by e-mail or telephone that he/she was selected to receive a Prize. Before being declared a Prize winner, the selected entrant will be required to correctly answer a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question, without assistance of any kind whether mechanical or otherwise, to be administered at a mutually convenient time by telephone. The selected entrant will also be required to sign and return, within the time stipulated in the documents, a Declaration of Compliance with these Rules and a Liability and Publicity Release (collectively, the “Declaration and Release”). Once completed, the winner’s contact information will be forwarded to the Sponsor or representative to arrange the prize fulfillment.

If the selected entrant cannot be reached within ten (10) business days of the date of being declared a potential winner, fails to submit the completed Declaration and Release within fourteen (14) days, or fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question within the time allotted, the Sponsor shall conclude that the selected entrant has forfeited the Prize, which may then be awarded to an alternate eligible entrant at the Sponsor’s discretion. Return of any Prize or Prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate eligible entrant.

STIHL® Limited Canada, at its discretion, may substitute the Molly Maid® Gift Certificate with a cheque valued at the same amount for any reason.

After official winner confirmation, the winners will receive their respective Prize via courier, that must be signed for by the winner.
