DRYCO BUILDING SUPPLIES INC.

RULES AND CONSUMER DISCLOSURE FOR ALL CONTESTS, COUPONS AND OTHER PROMOTIONAL OFFERS


WHAT DO THESE RULES RELATE TO?

The rules published on this website apply to all contests, coupons and other promotional offers made or offered in Canada by Dryco Building Supplies Inc. (“Dryco”), except to the extent that they are modified or supplemented by the specific contest rules or promotional offer terms set out in the point of sale, coupon or other contest or promotional offer document provided or made available to you (in these rules referred to as the “POS Material”). In the event of a conflict between these rules and the terms set out in the POS Material, the POS Material will govern to the extent of the conflict and these rules will apply in all other respects. In these rules, references to “we” or “us” refer to Dryco and its affiliates and related parties. References to “you” mean all prospective entrants in any contest or users of any coupon or participants in any other promotional offer made by us in Canada.

IS A PURCHASE NECESSARY?

No purchase is necessary in order to enter any contest we may offer from time to time, and a purchase will not increase your odds of winning such a contest.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO ENTER OR PARTICIPATE

To be eligible to enter any contest, use any coupon or otherwise participate in any other promotional offer we may make from time to time, you must be a resident of Canada (excluding Quebec) and you must be of the legal age of majority in the province where you reside or where you use the coupon or otherwise participate in the promotional offer. You are not eligible if you are an employee of us or any of our affiliates or related parties, or if you are a member of the immediate family (defined as parents, siblings, children and spouse, regardless of where they live) or household (whether related or not) of any of such persons. If the POS Material contains additional restrictions on entry, use or participation, those restrictions will also apply to further limit the eligible participants.

Contest entries, coupons and other promotional offers we may make are not assignable or transferable.

All contests, coupons or other promotional offers we may offer, issue or make from time to time are void where prohibited by law, and are subject to all federal, provincial and municipal laws and regulations, including without limitation any applicable liquor laws.

ARE THERE DEADLINES?

Any contest we run, coupon we issue or other promotional offer we make will apply only during the period of time set out in the POS Material. In the case of contests, the POS Material will specify a deadline for our receipt of entries and only those entries which have been received by the specified deadline in the form and manner of delivery specified in the POS Material will be eligible. We are not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, damaged, incomplete, illegible or postage due mail or for any entry which is not delivered in the required manner or is not received or recorded for any other reason by the applicable deadline.

For coupon offers, the coupon may only be redeemed during the time period specified for that coupon on the coupon itself or otherwise in its POS Material.

HOW DO YOU ENTER OR PARTICIPATE?

The method for entering any contest, using any coupon or otherwise participating in any promotional offer will be specified in the POS Material. Where a contest is to be entered by mail, entries must be in the form specified in the POS Material and must be sent by regular mail to the address specified and received by the applicable deadline. Duplicate or facsimile copies of an entry form are not acceptable, and unless otherwise noted in the POS Material, only one entry per person may be submitted. Where an on-line entry method is provided for, you must enter through the website specified in the POS Material and you must complete all required fields in the entry form. Any use of automated devices is prohibited.

Coupons and other promotional offers cannot be combined with each other or with any other coupon or promotional offer made by any other person or organization. Unless otherwise provided for in the applicable POS Material, there is a limit of one (1) coupon or other promotional offer per transaction. Duplicate or facsimile copies of a coupon or other promotional offer are not acceptable.

WHAT IS THE PRIZE OR PROMOTIONAL OFFER?

The specific prize or prizes available to be won in any contest, and the specific terms of any coupon or other promotional offer, will be specified in the POS Material for that contest, coupon or offer. Unless otherwise specified, prizes in any contest must be accepted as awarded and no cash equivalent or substitute prizes may be demanded. We do however reserve the right to award cash or a substitute prize of at least equivalent value if we determine that it is expedient to do so for any reason. Where a prize is in the form of merchandise, the only warranties with respect to that merchanmdise are the applicable manufacturer’s warranties and Dryo makes no other representations or warranties regarding the merchandise whatsoever.

Coupons and other promotional offers have no cash value unless otherwise specified in the POS Material.

ARE THERE REGIONAL ALLOCATIONS OF PRIZES?

Unless otherwise specified in the POS Material, there will not be a regional allocation of contest prizes, coupons or other promotional offers we may make from time to time, except that where a particular contest, coupon or other promotional offer is made only in certain provinces or areas, the allocation of contest prizes, coupons and other promotional offers will of course be limited to those provinces or areas.

HOW WILL CONTEST PRIZES BE AWARDED?

Contests may be contests of skill only or contests of mixed chance and skill. Where we conduct a contest of skill only, such as a contest to compose a product slogan or write an essay or draw a design, then the judging criteria for that contest will be set out in the POS Material and the entrant whose entry is judged the best according to those criteria will be declared the winner, subject to fulfillment of the Winning Conditions (described below).

Where a contest is one of mixed chance and skill, such as a draw or sweepstakes, winners will be selected in the following manner: a draw will be held as soon as is reasonably practicable after the contest closing date, and an entry will be randomly selected from all of the contest entries which have been validly received by us prior to the applicable entry deadline. If the entrant who submitted the entry so drawn fulfills the Winning Conditions, they will be the contest winner. If the selected entrant fails to fulfill the Winning Conditions within the required time period, their entry will be disqualified and another entry will be drawn. This process will be repeated until a selected entrant fulfils the Winning Conditions within the required time limit and is declared the winner.

All potential contest winners must comply with the following conditions in order to be declared the winner of a prize (the “Winning Conditions”): they must correctly answer a skill-testing question which we will administer over the telephone or by mail; they must complete and sign our standard form release and consent form; and they must have complied with all of the applicable contest rules. Under our standard form release and consent form, the potential winner, among other things: (a) represents and warrants that he or she is the person who submitted the selected entry, was eligible to enter the contest and has complied with all of the contest rules; (b) releases us and all of our subsidiary and affiliated companies and our directors, officers, employees and agents from all liability of any kind in connection with the contest, or occurring as a result of the prize being awarded; (c) confirms their acceptance of the prize as awarded; and (d) agrees to our use, without compensation, of their name, photograph, filmed or recorded image, and city of residence in future marketing or publicity campaigns (whether or not related to the contest) in any media or format, including on our websites. A potential contest winner must personally answer the skill-testing question, and answers by friends, relatives, executors or other representatives are not valid and will be disqualified. Potential winners must fulfill all of the Winning Conditions within sixty (60) days of their entry being selected or they will be disqualified.

The names of all prize winners, once determined, will be published on our website or may be obtained by writing to us at the address for questions provided below.

All questions as to the eligibility of any entry and the selection of any winner will be determined by us, acting reasonably, and our decisions in that regard will be final.

WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF WINNING?

For contests of mixed chance and skill, the odds of winning will depend on the number of eligible entries received by the contest entry deadline. Where contests may be entered over the internet or in any other method where a particular entry form is not required then it will be impossible to predict in advance how may entries may be submitted.

HOW WILL OTHER PROMOTIONAL OFFERS BE CONDUCTED?

The method for redeeming any coupon or for participating in any other promotional offer will be specified in the POS Material.

OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you choose to enter any contest, use any coupon or otherwise participate in any other promotional offer we may make from time to time, you may be required to provide us with personally identifiable information. In that event, we will collect, use and disclose that information only in accordance with our Privacy Policy in effect from time to time, a copy of which is available upon your written request sent to the address for questions provided below, or through the “Privacy Policy” link provided in this website and/or any other related website specified in the POS Materials. By entering any contest, using any coupon or otherwise participating in any other promotional offer you will be deemed to have consented to our collection, use and disclosure of any personal information you provide to us in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

IS THERE A LIMITATION OF OUR LIABILITY?

Yes. Neither we nor any of our affiliates, shareholders, directors, officers, employees or contractors (collectively, the “Releasees”) will be liable to you or to any other person for: (a) any incomplete or inaccurate information, whether caused by users of any of the Releasees’ websites, by typographical or printing errors, by any equipment or programming associated with or utilized in any contest, coupon program or other promotional offer, or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of entries or coupons or the administration of any other promotional offer; (b) the theft, destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries in any contest or coupons or other items issued or distributed as part of or in connection with any other promotional offer; (c) any problems with, or technical malfunctions of, telephone networks or lines, computer on-line systems, servers or service providers, computer equipment, software, viruses or bugs; (d) any failure of any e-mail to be received by or from any of the Releasees for any reason including but not limited to traffic congestion on the Internet or at any website or combination thereof; or (e) any injury, damage or loss of or to the person or property of any participant or other person, including damage to the participant’s or other person’s computer system, occasioned by or resulting from participation in or downloading of materials in connection with any contest, use of any coupon or participation in any other promotional offer any of the Releasees may be involved in from time to time.

CAN WE TERMINATE OR AMEND THE CONTEST OR PROMOTIONAL OFFER?

Yes. We reserve the right to terminate or amend any contest, coupon program or other promotional offer we may make, including any rules applicable thereto, at any time in our sole discretion and without any requirement for prior notice except to the extent that any provincial liquor authority requires such notice. We will have no liability whatsoever if for any reason any contest, coupon program or other promotional offer we may offer or make is not capable of running as planned, due to technical problems or for other reasons beyond our reasonable control.

MISCELLANEOUS MATTERS

Failure to comply with any of the rules applicable to any contest, coupon program or other promotional offer we may offer or make will result in disqualification. Persons tampering with or abusing any entry mechanisms or policies will be disqualified. ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER PERSON TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THIS OR ANY OF OUR OTHER WEBSITES OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY CONTEST, COUPON PROGRAM OR OTHER PROMOTIONAL OFFER WE MAY OFFER OR MAKE FROM TIME TO TIME IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS AND, SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. All contest entries, coupons, POS Material (to the extent that it is returned to us) and other documents become our property once submitted or returned to us and will not be returned. Contest entries will be rejected if not fully completed.
