    5. WINNER SELECTION, NOTIFICATION AND CONFIRMATION PROCESS: The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible Entries received during the Contest Period. Following the Contest Period, there will be a random draw on June 1, 2017 (the “Draw Date”), from among all eligible Entries received during the Contest Period (see Rule 3 above), to select Entrants eligible to win a Prize.

     

    The Entrant eligible to win will be contacted by SCENE LP via the e-mail address connected to their SCENE membership card for further communication, whereby each selected Entrant will be required to successfully answer a mathematical skill-testing question and sign a declaration and release form in order to be declared a winner. Once a selected Entrant is confirmed to be an eligible winner, the Prize will be deposited into their SCENE account.

     

    Following the Draw Date, SCENE LP or its designated representative will make a minimum of two (2) attempts to contact each selected Entrant (using the information provided by email) within ten (10) business days of the Draw Date. If the selected Entrant cannot be contacted within ten (10) business days of the Draw Date, or if there is a return of any notification as undeliverable; then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to a Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to randomly select an alternate eligible Entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries received during the Contest Period (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new selected Entrant).

     

    BEFORE BEING DECLARED A CONFIRMED PRIZE WINNER, the selected Entrant will be required to: (a) correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question without mechanical or other aid; (b) confirm compliance with these Rules; (c) acknowledge acceptance of the Prize as awarded within 2 business days; (d) release the Contest Parties and SCENE LP, and each of their respective officers, directors, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability in connection with this Contest, his/her participation therein and/or the awarding and use/misuse of the Prize or any portion thereof; and (e) agree 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. If the selected Entrant: (a) fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question; (b) fails to respond within the specified time; and/or (c) cannot accept the Prize as awarded for any reason; then he/she will be disqualified (and will forfeit all rights to the Prize) and the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to randomly select an alternate eligible Entrant from among the remaining eligible Entries received during the Contest Period (in which case the foregoing provisions of this section shall apply to such new selected Entrant).
