4. Winner Selection
On December 30, 2016 at 9:00 am PT (i.e. 12:00 noon ET) at 400 Applewood Crescent, Suite 500, Vaughan, ON L4K 0C3, Deloitte will randomly select one (1) potential winner from among all Entries received during the Entry Period as eligible to win for each of the thirty-one (31) days in the month of January 2017. Each selected entrant will be notified by telephone within five (5) business days of the day for which his/her Entry was selected. All potential winners must satisfy the prize claim conditions set out below to be eligible to win.
5. Prize Claim Conditions
Before any potential winner can be declared a winner, he/she must first (i) correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question (the “Skill-Testing Question”) without assistance of any kind whether mechanical, electronic or otherwise, and (ii) read, execute and return a declaration of eligibility/release of liability (the “Prize Claim Document”) to the redemption centre (the “Redemption Centre”) by the date indicated on the Prize Claim Document.
Once the potential winner is contacted, the Sponsor will schedule a mutually convenient time for the Sponsor to administer the Skill-Testing Question to that individual, which must occur within eight (8) business days from the date of first contact. Following which, and provided the potential winner correctly answers the Skill-Testing Question, the Sponsor will send that potential winner (via regular mail delivery and/or email to the addresses confirmed by the potential winner) the required Prize Claim Document that the potential winner will be required to complete and return to the Redemption Centre, in a postage-paid envelope which the Redemption Centre will provide to him/her, by email or by fax. The Prize Claim Document will contain, among other things, a declaration of eligibility and compliance with the Official Rules, a liability release and a publicity release and must be actually received (properly completed and signed by the potential winner) by the Redemption Centre on or before a date which the Redemption Centre will specify to the potential winner. When the Redemption Centre receives the completed Prize Claim Document, the Redemption Centre will begin the verification process described in these Official Rules. It is planned that the Redemption Centre will inform the applicable entrant, if he/she is not a verified winner, within approximately twenty (20) business days from the date the completed Prize Claim Document and any other required materials are actually received by the Redemption Center. If the potential winner is verified as a winner, the Redemption Center will award the prize.
Return of any prize or winner notification as undeliverable, inability to reach selected entrant or failure of selected entrant to respond to notification within five (5) business days of first attempt by Sponsor, failure to provide proof of eligibility (if requested), Prize Claim Document, or other required documentation by the deadline provided with the documents, failure to correctly answer the Skill-Testing Question, or other non-compliance with these Official Rules may result in disqualification, forfeiture of the prize and, at the Sponsor’s sole discretion, selection of an alternate entrant who will be eligible to win the forfeited Prize, subject to disqualification in the same manner described above. In the event an entrant is so disqualified, the entrant will have no claim against the Sponsor or any other person respecting the forfeited prize or the Sweepstakes.
All information requested by and supplied to the Sponsor for the purpose of the Sweepstakes must be truthful, complete, accurate, and in no way misleading. The Sponsor reserves the right; in its sole discretion to disqualify any entrant should such an entrant at any stage supply untruthful, incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading personal details and/or information, and may require return or repayment of any prize awarded.
There are thirty-one (31) prizes available to be won, one (1) representing each day of the month of January 2017. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Each prize consists of a cheque payable to the verified winner in the amount of $10,000.

8. General Disclosures
A. Power or Other Interruptions affecting Sweepstakes Entry: If there is a power or a computer-related interruption of any nature whatsoever before an Entry Code, which an Entrant has attempted to enter into the Sweepstakes, has actually been received and recorded by the Sweepstakes Computer, it is possible that the Entry Code may have been lost, and consequently forfeited. When power is restored or the interruption corrected, the Entrant who experienced the interruption should sign in to the Official Website and try to enter the applicable Entry Code to determine if that Entry Code or was received and recorded by the Sweepstakes Computer before the interruption occurred. If the applicable Entry Code was received and recorded by Sweepstakes Computer, an onscreen message will state that the Entry Code has already been entered into the Sweepstakes. The Sponsor is not responsible for any Entry Codes lost as a result of power or computer-related interruption.
By participating in the Sweepstakes and by submitting Prize Claim Materials, except where legally prohibited, each verified winner hereby agrees and grants the Sponsor the right, but not the obligation, to use his/her name, voice, and likeness, along with his/her address (city/town/village and Province/Territory) and any statements made by or attributed to such Winner in any and all media (including the internet), now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity and throughout the universe, for advertising and promotional purposes in connection with the Sweepstakes without further notice, review, approval or compensation and releases the Sponsor and all directors, officers, employees, agents, advertising and promotional agencies, representatives, service agencies and independent contractors of the Sponsor from any and all liability with respect thereto.
It is each Entrant’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has complied in full with all the conditions and requirements contained in these Official Rules. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering or interfering in any way with the process involved in entering the Sweepstakes or with the operation of the Sweepstakes, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in any unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the apparent intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to any, abuse, threaten or harass any other person. The Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
C. Force Majeure/Printing and Production Errors or Omissions
The Sponsor has the following rights in respect to termination or modification of the Sweepstakes, subject only to the jurisdiction of the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux (the “Régie”) in the Province of Quebec. Sponsor reserves the right, without prior notice and at any time, to terminate Sweepstakes, in whole or in part, or to modify, suspend or extend the Sweepstakes in any way and for any reason. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Sponsor may terminate the Sweepstakes, whole or in part, or modify, suspend or extend the Sweepstakes, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions (including, without limitation, computer viruses, glitches, or printing or production errors or omissions) have destroyed or severely undermined the proper play, integrity, and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes. In the event the Sponsor is impeded or prevented from continuing with the Sweepstakes as planned or intended by any event beyond its control, including, but not limited to fire, flood, natural or manmade epidemic or health hazard or crisis, earthquake, explosion, labour dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared), any federal, provincial, territorial or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, the order of any court or jurisdiction, or by any other cause not reasonably within the Sponsor’s control, then the Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend or terminate the Sweepstakes. Only the number of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded in the Sweepstakes. The sole responsibility and liability of any irregular Entry Code or Sweepstakes Draw Code caused by the Sponsor is replacement with another randomly selected Entry Code or Sweepstakes Draw Code, as solely determined by the Sponsor. Replacement shall be the sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstance. If, due to printing or production errors or omissions or for any other reason whatever, the number of potential prize winners coming forward seeking to claim prizes exceeds the number of prizes as set out in these Official Rules, in the sole discretion of Sponsor, the winner may be selected in a random drawing from among all persons making purportedly valid claims for such prize(s).
D. Waiver and Invalidity
Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that a provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein. Headings and captions are used in these Official Rules solely for ease of reference, and shall not be deemed or considered to affect in any manner the meaning or intent of these Official Rules or any provision thereof.
