CANADA 150 CONTEST OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW.

1.   ELIGIBILITY: The Canada 150 ("Contest") is only open to persons who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, provincial and local laws and regulations.

 

2.   Employees, officers, directors and agents of Zipcar, Inc. ("Zipcar"), its Affiliates (and their immediate families—children, spouse, parents, siblings—and those living in their same households whether or not related) are not eligible; "Affiliates" includes all entities associated with Zipcar for purposes of this Contest.

 

3.   By participating, each entrant ("Entrant") agrees to be bound by these Official Rules (the "Rules") and the decisions of Zipcar, if applicable, which are final and binding in all respects. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. Entry into the Contest is open to both members and non-members of Zipcar; purchase of a Zipcar membership is not necessary to enter the Contest and a purchase will not improve the ability of an Entrant to win. Each Entrant selected as a winner of a prize, which includes Zipcar driving credit, must become a Zipcar member to collect such prize; any Entrant who does not have a Zipcar membership will not be able to collect such a prize until they become a Zipcar member who successfully fullfills Zipcar's membership requirements, as outlined here. It is the responsibility of the entrant to ensure they meet all eligibility criteria and can provide any required evidence of their eligibility.

 

4.   CONTEST PERIOD: The Contest Period begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("EST") on July 1, 2017 and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on August 31, 2017.

 

5.   THE PRIZE: The designated Winner will be awarded the following prize (the “Prize”):

The first installment of $150 will occur within the month of September 2017, within three (3) business days of the choice account being chosen. Thereafter, the remaining installments will be added to the choice account on the 1st day of every calendar month, starting October 1, 2017 until June 1, 2018. Each $150 installment of driving credit will be active for two (2) calendar months. If any amount of a driving credit remains unused after two months, it will become Expired and will no longer be available for use by Winner.

Date of issue is September 15, 2017 – travel must be completed within 12 months from the date of issue. Unused value is non-refundable or transferable to future travel. Credit is not extendable.

This is not an exhaustive list of Terms and Conditions for Via Rail Promotional Travel Credit; full details to be available to Winner upon receipt of physical prize package.

 

6.   CONTEST ENTRY GUIDELINES: The Contest invites participants to make reservations in a Zipcar, which will amount to a qualifying reservation count as outlined in Section 7 below. Only one Entry per Entrant. Entries are accepted through the entirety of the contest. Only activities completed after the entry timestamp, and prior to Contest completion, will count towards the contest.

 

All Entries are subject to the terms and conditions of these Rules. Entries that are not received by the end of the Entry Period or that do not comply with these Rules will be ineligible. Entry in this Contest constitutes Entrant's irrevocable assignment, conveyance and transference to Zipcar of any and all right, title and interest in the Entry. Entries received without the appropriate information will not be accepted.

 

Entrants do not need to be current Zipcar members to enter or participate in the Canada 150 contest. No purchase is necessary to register. To register by mail, participants should mail one postcard to: Canada 150 Contest Entry, Attn: Member Marketing Department, Zipcar, Inc., 35 Thomson Place, Boston, MA 02210.

 

7.   TO PARTICIPATE:

a.   Members are automatically eligible to win the Prize upon completing six (6) reservations within the Contest Period.

b.   Each completed reservation within the Contest Period will act as one reservation, unless a “Canada 150 branded” Zipcar is reserved, at which point two (2) reservations will be recorded towards the six reservation total.

c.   To be considered eligible, reservations must begin within the Contest Period, and must be completed by September 4, 2017 at 12:01am. Cancelled reservations will not count towards member’s reservation amount. Reservation extensions will not count as multiple reservations. Reservation must begin within Canada.

d.   Reservations will be awarded to individual members, also known as Drivers, not to account holders. Therefore, members making reservations on any number of accounts will accumulate reservations as a Driver.

e.   Once six (6) reservations have been accumulated, a member will become a Qualified Member. Additional reservations above and beyond six (6) will not contribute to an increased chance of winning the Prize.

f.     All members with six (6) or more reservations, as determined on September 4, 2017, will receive one (1) chance to win the Prize. The Winner will be selected, at random, by a Zipcar employee from a list of all Qualified Members. If a winner does not meet Zipcar's criteria as stated above, the winner will be disqualified and another, alternate winner from amongst the Qualified Members will be selected.

g.   The Winner will be contacted directly by a Zipcar employee between September 4 – September 8, 2017. Communication will occur both by phone number and email (as listed on member’s Zipcar account). If no response is received within 48 hours, the Winner will be disqualified and another, alternate winner from amongst the Qualified Members will be selected.

 

8.   TO CHECK PROGRESS: To determine accumulation of reservations, members are encouraged to view their reservation info at https://members.zipcar.ca/reservations. This online tool will not allude to two reservation counts for “Canada 150 branded” vehicles – it is a member’s responsibility to track this contest detail themselves.

 

Some restrictions apply. All taxes or expenses, including without limitation, sales tax, luxury tax and any other costs incurred in claiming or using the prize are the sole responsibility of the winner as well as all costs incurred in entering into the Contest or using or enjoying the prize, such as any administrative costs, insurances and spending money (unless specifically stated otherwise). No prize substitutions or cash equivalent of prize is permitted. Prizes are non-transferable. By entering, Entrants give their express permission to be contacted by Zipcar by phone, mail or email. If any prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the winner does not respond to notification within 24 hours of the date of notification, the prize will be forfeited and the judges will select an alternate winner. In the event of noncompliance with these requirements, the prize will be forfeited and the judges will select an alternate winner. No more than the stated prizes will be awarded. Unclaimed prizes may not be awarded.

 

9. GENERAL CONDITIONS: By qualifying, each Entrant agrees to release and hold Zipcar, its Affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives, contractors, and agents of each such entity harmless from any and all liability whatsoever for any injury, loss, or damage of any kind to any person or property resulting from (i) acceptance, possession, or use of any Prize, or (ii) participation in this Contest or any Contest-related activities.

If Zipcar, in their discretion, elects to abbreviate, cancel or terminate the Contest as a result of a Force Majeure event, Zipcar reserves the right, but shall have no obligation, to award the Prize from among all valid and eligible entries received up to the time of such Force Majeure event. Zipcar reserves the right to correct typographic, clerical or printing errors in any Contest materials.

If, for any reason, the Contest is affected by any computer virus, worm, bug, tampering, hacking, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failure or other cause which, in the sole opinion of Zipcar, corrupts or otherwise affects the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Contest, Zipcar may in its sole discretion cancel, terminate, modify, or suspend the Contest, and may determine winner(s) from Qualified Members or as otherwise deemed fair and equitable by Zipcar. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Zipcar reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Zipcar's failure to enforce any term of these Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
