7. GRAND PRIZE WINNER SELECTION PROCESS:
Throughout the Contest Period, a panel of judges (the "Judges") appointed by the Sponsor at its sole and absolute discretion will judge all eligible names received on the basis of the following equally-weighted judging criteria (the "Judging Criteria"): (1) the effectiveness of the Reply; (2) the feasibility of the Reply; and (3) the presentation of the Reply. Each eligible Reply will be assigned an overall label of: 1) "Yes, the Reply should proceed to the next stage of the Grand Prize winner selection process" (a "Yes Label"); OR 2) "No , the Reply should not proceed to the next stage of the Grand Prize winner selection process" (a "No Label").
On March 12th, 2018 (the "Selection Date"), the Judges will judge all eligible Replies received during the Contest Period that received a Yes Label and will assign each such name a score (each, a "Score") on the basis of the Judging Criteria. The entrant associated with the Reply that obtains the highest Score (as determined by the Judges at their sole and absolute discretion) will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner. In the event of a tie, the Reply (from among such Replies that are tied) that obtained the highest score on the first Judging Criteria listed above will be deemed to have obtained the higher Score. The odds of winning the Grand Prize depend on the number of eligible names received during the Contest Period and the calibre of such names based on the Judging Criteria.
The Sponsor or its designated representative will make a maximum of three (3) attempts to contact the potential Grand Prize winner by email or telephone (using the information associated with his/her Account) within ten (10) days of the Selection Date. If the potential Grand Prize winner cannot be contacted within a maximum of three (3) attempts or ten (10) days of the Selection Date or there is a return of any notification as undeliverable; then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Grand Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to select the eligible entrant who received the next highest Score to be the potential Grand Prize winner (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new potential Grand Prize winner).
BEFORE BEING DECLARED THE CONFIRMED GRAND PRIZE WINNER, the potential Grand Prize winner must sign and return within ten (10) business days of notification a declaration and release prepared by the Sponsor, which, among other things: (i) confirms compliance with these Rules; (ii) agrees to release the Released Parties from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising from any liability in connection with this Contest and/or his/her participation therein; (iii) assigns all intellectual property, including copyright, in and to his/her name to the Sponsor and waives his/her moral rights therein in favour of the Sponsor; (iv) agrees to indemnify the Released Parties against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses arising from any use of his/her name, including, without limitation, any claim that his/her name infringes a proprietary interest of any third party; (v) acknowledges acceptance of the Grand Prize as awarded; (vi) releases the Released Parties from any and all liability in connection with the awarding and/or his/her use/misuse of the Grand Prize or any portion thereof; and (vii) agrees to the publication, reproduction and/or other use of his/her name, address, voice, statements about the Contest and/or photograph or other likeness without further notice or compensation, in any publicity or advertisement carried out by, or on behalf of, the Sponsor in any manner whatsoever, including print, broadcast or the internet. The Sponsor may require that the eligible Grand Prize winner provide confirmation in a form acceptable to the Sponsor, of the grant of rights of all individuals (or their parent or legal guardian if a minor) with rights in the name; or, where the Grand Prize winner cannot secure such confirmation, the Grand Prize winner agrees to work with the Sponsor to obtain such rights. The Sponsor is in no way obligated to use, reproduce, publish or broadcast, modify any name, and any use shall be in the Sponsor's sole and absolute discretion.
If the potential Grand Prize winner: (a) fails to return the properly executed Contest documents within the specified time; and/or (b) cannot accept the Grand Prize for any reason; then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Grand Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to select the eligible entrant who received the next highest Score to be the potential Grand Prize winner (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new potential Grand Prize winner).
