(b) Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries.

(c) The prize will be administered only by the Joint Utility Safety Team in accordance with these Official Rules, and where these Official Rules are deficient, ambiguous, vague, or contradictory, the Joint Utility Safety Team will determine such matter in its own discretion. If, in the sole opinion of the Joint Utility Safety Team, the prize may not be granted for an unexpected reason or some reason outside the control of the Joint Utility Safety Team, the Joint Utility Safety Team will have the right, but not the obligation, to substitute the prize with something else which may differ in value to the prize.

(d) The prize must be accepted as offered in these Official Rules, or will otherwise be forfeited by the winner. If forfeited, the Joint Utility Safety Team will not be required to compensate the winner in any other way, and will in no way be liable to the winner. If the prize is forfeited by a selected participant, the Joint Utility Safety Team will re-select a winner in the same manner the first entry was selected, and so on in the event of forfeit until a participant accepts the prize.

  1. Prize Winner

(a) The Joint Utility Safety Team will endeavour to select the winner within seven (7) business days of the end of the Contest Period, however, the volume of entries, and potential difficulty in contacting a winner, may delay the selection. Selection will be by random selection using a random number generator computer program that will pull from all eligible entries.

(b) Once selected, the Joint Utility Safety Team will contact the participant identified and associated with the selected entry by a direct (private) Facebook message.  By entering this contest you are hereby consenting to the Joint Utility Safety Team sending you direct messages to your Facebook account.   Only three attempts will be made, over a three-day period, with the first attempt made immediately after the selection is made. If direct contact is not made with the selected participant for any reason within seventy-two (72) hours of the first attempt, if the selected participant is contacted but the Joint Utility Safety Team is subsequently unable to re-contact the selected participant to complete prize administration, or if the selected participant is unwilling or unable to comply with these Official Rules, all in the Joint Utility Safety Team opinion and discretion, he or she will thereby forfeit the prize with no further recourse against the Joint Utility Safety Team, and another participant’s entry will be selected in the same manner the first entry was selected, and so on until a winner is contacted.

(c) Once contacted, the selected participant will be required to provide his or her mailing address and other details pertaining to the contest and the prize. Details include but are not limited to, shipping instructions, delivery details, contact information, eligibility validation (including birthdate), and general questions. The Joint Utility Safety Team may require the selected participant to engage in a telephone conversation through which the selected participant will be asked for such information and be required to answer a skill testing question. Each participant represents and agrees that he or she will provide accurate and truthful information to the Joint Utility Safety Team, and agrees that the Joint Utility Safety Team may use means it deems necessary to confirm information provided.

(d) Upon the Joint Utility Safety Team verification that the selected participant is in compliance with all of the Official Rules, the selected participant will be declared a winner. If, for any reason, the selected participant is in breach of these Official Rules or is ineligible, the selected participant will not be entitled to the prize.

(e) The prize will be mailed to the winner’s home address. The Joint Utility Safety Team will mail the prize within a reasonable time after the winner is determined, but does not guarantee any timeframe in which the prize will be delivered. The Joint Utility Safety Team will not be responsible for delays or errors in postage.

(f) The winner may be announced on the Joint Utility Safety Team Twitter and/or Facebook page(s).

(g) The winner may refuse the prize, in which case the Joint Utility Safety Team will not be required to award the prize to that winner.

In such case, the Joint Utility Safety Team will require confirmation, to the Joint Utility Safety Team sole satisfaction, that the prize was otherwise unused, of the defectiveness or value discrepancy directly from Mark’s, or other evidence deemed relevant by the Joint Utility Safety Team, as the case may be.
