Limit of one (1) entry per person from a valid Twitter account during the Contest Period. Creation and use of multiple or alias Twitter accounts in order to exceed the limits on entries permitted by these official rules may result in the disqualification of all entries from such accounts as well as disqualification of the entrant. In the event of a dispute regarding who submitted an entry, the authorized subscriber of the twitter.com account used to participate in the contest at the time of entry will be deemed to be the entrant. The authorized account subscriber is defined as the natural person who is assigned a twitter.com account that can be verified by CMR. Note that if a Twitter account is set to “protected mode,” updates/responses/replies may not be visible in CMR’s inbox and may not thus be received by CMR unless the entrant has previously consented to permit CMR to see his/her Twitter updates. If an entrant opts to use Twitter via a wireless mobile device (which is not required to enter the contest), standard text messaging and/or data rates may apply for each message sent or received from the handset according to the terms and conditions of the service agreement with the wireless carrier. Other charges may apply (such as normal airtime and carrier charges) and may appear on an entrant’s mobile phone bill or be deducted from his/her prepaid account balance. Wireless carriers’ rate plans may vary, and entrants should contact their wireless carrier for more information on messaging rate plans and charges relating to participation in this contest. Participation in this contest by mobile device means that an entrant understands that he/she may receive additional messages by mobile device relating to this contest which may be subject to charges pursuant to his/her carrier’s rate plan. Text messaging may not be available from all mobile phone service carriers and handset models. Mobile device service may not be available in all areas.

The odds of winning a prize depend upon the number of eligible participants who have RSVP’d and participated in the Twitter Party during the Contest Period. Prizes must be accepted as awarded and are not redeemable for cash or credit, transferable or substitutable except in CMR’s sole discretion. CMR reserves the right to award a substitute prize or portion thereof of equal or greater value in its sole discretion. The refusal by an entrant to accept a prize releases and forever discharges Heritage and its agents of all obligations related to the prize, including delivery.
Prize Awarding: Eight (8) winners will be randomly selected from all entries received. A random generator will be used to select entrants. Selected entrants will be notified by direct message on Twitter. Selected entrants will be required to fill out a declaration and release form, including answering a skill-testing question, within 24 hours of the end of the Contest Period.
Prizes will be awarded only on verification by CMR that all contest requirements have been met by a selected entrant. To be declared a winner, the selected entrant must (1) complete the declaration and release form emailed by Canadian Mother Resource within 24 hours of receipt ; and (2) answer, without help (mechanical or otherwise), a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question. By completing, signing and returning the declaration and release form, the entrant (i) confirms compliance with these official rules, (ii) release and forever discharges CMR, its affiliates and subsidiaries from all claims, demands, damages, actions and causes of action arising or to arise by reason of the acceptance or use of the prize, and (iii) gives permission to CMR at its option, to publish or otherwise use the entrant’s name, Twitter handle, profile picture, city of residence and comments, without notice or compensation, on the CMR website (momresource.ca) as well as in any publicity or promotion carried out by CMR or its advertising agencies.
If a selected entrant or winner in the contest cannot be reached, does not answer the mathematical skill-testing question correctly, declines the prize, or fails to return the declaration and release form as specified above, another entry will be randomly selected by CMR. The process outlined above will be continued until the applicable prize is awarded or there are no more eligible entrants. CMR is not responsible for and shall not be liable for late, lost, misdirected, or unsuccessful efforts to notify a selected entrant or winner. All decisions of CMR in the contest are final, and entrants agree to abide and be bound by the official rules, Twitter’s Terms of Service and Twitter Rules, and all of the instructions and decisions of CMR. In the event of any dispute regarding the interpretation of the official rules or any decision rendered by CMR, the decision or interpretation of CMR shall prevail. CMR, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person it finds to be in violation of the official rules, Twitter’s Terms of Service or Twitter Rules. CMR is not responsible if any entrant’s account is suspended by Twitter for violation of Twitter’s Terms of Service or Twitter Rules.
