Official Rules (the “Rules”)
The “MONTHLY DRAWS OF ST-HUBERT GIFT CARDS” Contest (the “Contest”) is held by Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert Ltée (the “Organizer”). The Contest begins on October 1, 2020 at 00 h 00 min 01 sec Eastern Time (ET) and ends on December 31, 2021 at 23 h 59 min 59 sec ET (the “Contest Period”). The clock used by the Organizer will be the official clock to determine the date and time of receipt of an Entry (as such term is defined below).
In order to be eligible to enter into the Contest, a person must meet the following criteria at the time of his or her entry into the Contest: he or she is a legal resident of Canada and has reached the legal age of majority in his or her province or territory of residence (a “Participant” or, collectively, the “Participants”).
Are excluded the employees, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, representatives or mandataries of the Organizer and those of its subsidiaries, related companies, franchisees, advertising and promotional agencies and suppliers of prizes, as well as the members of their immediate family (father, mother, sisters, brothers, children), legal or common-law spouse, and all individuals with whom these persons are domiciled, whether or not these persons are related to each other.
There are two (2) ways of entering the Contest:
A. By Subscribing to the Organizer’s Newsletter
During the Contest Period, the Participant must subscribe to the Organizer’s newsletter, either (i) on the Organizer’s informational website (https://www.st-hubert.com/en/fanclub/newsletter.html); (ii) on the Organizer’s transactional website (https://order.st-hubert.com/); or (iii) on the Organizer’s mobile applications.
By doing so, the Participant will receive one (1) entry into the Ongoing Draw, as well as one (1) entry into each subsequent Draw, provided that the Participant continues to subscribe to the newsletter on each subsequent Draw Date.
A Draw is deemed to be “ongoing” until 23 h 59 min 59 sec ET on its Closing Date. See section 5 for Closing Dates and Draw Dates.
For the sake of clarity, for example, a Participant who subscribes to the Organizer’s newsletter on October 30, 2020 and who unsubscribes therefrom on February 2, 2021 will obtain one (1) entry to the Ongoing Draw, held on November 2, 2020 and one (1) entry to each of the Draws held on December 7, 2020, January 11, 2021 and February 1, 2021, but will not obtain any entries to the March 1, 2021 Draw or to the subsequent Draws.
Participants having already subscribed to the Organizer’s newsletter before the start of the Contest Period shall automatically receive one (1) entry into each Draw, provided that they continue to subscribe to the newsletter on the Draw Date.
B. By Sending a Text to the Organizer
During the Contest Period, a Participant may write and submit a text to the Organizer in order to enter into the Contest. The text must be submitted in one of the following ways:
The Participant must explain, in five hundred (500) words, his or her interest in the Contest and the Organizer. The submitted text must be original (not copied) and must not violate any applicable laws, including any intellectual property applicable laws. The Participant must also provide an email address and a phone number where the Organizer may contact him or her.
Once the Participant’s text is received and analyzed, the Organizer will provide the Participant with one (1) entry into the Ongoing Draw and one (1) entry into each subsequent Draw.
Each entry obtained by subscribing to the newsletter or by sending a text to the Organizer constitutes an “Entry”.
Limit. There is a limit of one (1) Entry per Participant per Draw. For the sake of clarity and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a Participant may obtain only one (1) Entry per Draw either by subscribing to the Organizer’s newsletter, irrespective of the email address used, or by submitting a written text. Mechanically reproduced, forged or altered Entries are void. The Organizer is not responsible for lost, late, undelivered or invalid Entries, which will be disqualified. All Entries become the exclusive property of the Organizer and will not be returned to the Participant.
Any attempt by a Participant to obtain more than one Entry per Draw, by using multiple email addresses, social media accounts, identities, registrations, logins, or any other methods will void that Participant’s Entries and that Participant may be disqualified at the Organizer’s sole discretion. Use of any automated system (including but not limited to, Entries submitted using any robot, script, macro, or other automated service) to enter is prohibited and will result in the disqualification of the Participant. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any person who submitted an Entry by subscribing to the newsletter, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the Participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned to the email address by the internet access provider, the online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning the email address account. Selected Participants may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
By entering the Contest, the Participant agrees to comply with these Rules.
A total of seventy-five (75) prizes will be available during the Contest Period, for a total value of seven thousand five hundred Canadian dollars (7 500$ CAD) (the “Prizes”).
Each Prize consists of a gift card of the Organizer of a value of one hundred Canadian dollars (100$ CAD).
Under no circumstances will more than the stated number of Prizes be awarded.
There will be fifteen (15) draws, each a “Draw” or, collectively, the “Draws”, which will take place once a month in accordance with the “Draw Schedule” below.
For each Draw, the Entries must be received before 23 h 59 min 59 sec ET on the “Closing Date”.
Each Draw will take place at around 12 h 00 ET on each “Draw Date” at the Organizer’s head office located at 2500, Daniel-Johnson Boulevard, suite 700, Laval, Quebec, H7T 2P6.
During each Draw, five (5) Entries will be randomly selected amongst all eligible Entries received before the Closing Date of that Draw, for a total of seventy-five (75) selected Entries.
