ONTARIO HONDA DEALERS ASSOCIATION
HONDA SPIN FOR THE WIN CONTEST
THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO SELECT ONTARIO RESIDENTS ONLY
AND IS GOVERNED BY CANADIAN LAW
1. CONTEST PERIOD:
The Ontario Honda Dealers Association Honda Civic Holiday Spin For The Win Contest (the “Contest”) begins at start of business on July 29, 2020 and ends at close of business on August 5, 2020 – or, whenever 700 Bonus Discounts have been awarded in accordance with these Official Rules and Regulations (the “Rules”), whichever occurs first (the “Contest Period”).
The Contest is open to residents of Ontario who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry; except employees, representatives or agents (and those with whom such persons are domiciled, whether related or not) of Ontario Honda Dealers Association (the “Sponsor”), Honda Canada Inc., their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, prize suppliers, dealers,
advertising/promotion agencies and any other individual(s), entity or entities involved in the development, implementation, administration or fulfillment of the Contest (collectively, the “Contest Parties”). By participating in this Contest, you are signifying your agreement that you have read and agree to be legally bound by the terms and conditions of these Rules.
3. HOW TO ENTER:
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. THERE IS NO OBLIGATION WHATSOEVER TO COMPLETE AN ELIGIBLE PURCHASE/LEASE TRANSACTION IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN A BONUS DISCOUNT IN THIS CONTEST.
During the Contest Period, an eligible participant must visit a participating Ontario Honda Dealer for the opportunity to electronically “Spin” to receive one (1) Bonus Discount (each, a “Spin”) with the assistance, and under the supervision, of an authorized representative of the applicable participating Ontario Honda Dealer. Prior to being eligible to Spin, the Ontario Honda Dealer (or its representative) will enter certain information into the Sponsor’s computer system. There are two (2) ways to earn a Spin, as follows:
1. An eligible participant will automatically earn one (1) Spin when he/she agrees to complete a purchase/lease/finance transaction for a new 2020 Honda Civic (excluding Type R models) (each, an “Eligible Purchase/Lease Transaction”).
Once the eligible participant has determined the amount of the Bonus Discount he/she is eligible to win (subject to compliance with these Rules), the eligible participant has the choice of whether or not to actually complete an Eligible Purchase/Lease Transaction;
2. Alternatively, an eligible participant can earn one (1) Spin without the need to agree to complete an Eligible Purchase/Lease Transaction by providing the Ontario Honda Dealer (or its representative) with a 100 word or more unique and original handwritten essay explaining why he/she would like to own a Honda product (a “Request”).
There is a limit of one (1) Spin/Bonus Discount per eligible participant during the Contest Period (regardless of the method of entry). There are no re-Spins permitted. If it is discovered by the Sponsor (using any evidence or other information made available to or otherwise discovered by the Sponsor) that any person has attempted to: (i) exceed any of the limits stated in these Rules; and/or (ii) use multiple names, identities and/or any other means not in keeping with the Sponsor’s interpretation of the letter and spirit of these Rules to enter or otherwise participate in or to disrupt a Contest; then he/she may be disqualified from that Contest in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor. The Contest Parties and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives,
successors and assigns (collectively, the “Released Parties”) are not responsible for, and accept no liability whatsoever in relation to, any late, lost, misdirected, delayed, incomplete or incompatible information (all of which is void). The sole determinant of the time for the purposes of a Contest will be the official time-keeping device(s) of the Sponsor.
All Spins, Eligible Purchase/Lease Transactions, Requests and entrants are subject to verification at any time and for any reason. The Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to require proof of identity and/or eligibility (in a form acceptable to the Sponsor – including, without limitation, government issued photo identification): (i) for the purposes of verifying an individual’s
eligibility to participate in this Contest; (ii) for the purposes of verifying the eligibility and/or legitimacy of an Spin, Request, Eligible Purchase/Lease Transaction and/or other information for the purposes of this Contest; and/or (iii) for any other reason the Sponsor deems necessary, in its sole and absolute discretion, for the purposes of administering this Contest in accordance with the Sponsor’s
interpretation of letter and spirit of these Rules. Failure to provide such proof to the complete satisfaction of the Sponsor within the timeframe specified by the Sponsor may result in disqualification in the sole and absolute discretion of the Sponsor.
4. THE BONUS DISCOUNTS AND ODDS:
Each Spin will reveal one (1) of the following Bonus Discounts: (i) $100; (ii) $500; or (iii) $5000 (each a “Bonus Discount”), while Bonus Discounts last. All amounts are in Canadian currency. Bonus Discounts: (i) can be applied to 2020 Honda Civic (excluding Type R models) vehicles only; (ii) will be deducted from the negotiated price of an Eligible Purchase/Lease Transaction after taxes; and
(iii) can be combined with certain other lease and finance offers, as determined by the Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion. At the start of the Contest, there will be a total of seven hundred (700) Bonus Discounts available to be won. The number of Bonus Discounts available and the odds of obtaining a particular Bonus Discount at the start of the Contest are as follows:
Bonus Discount / Number available at start of Contest / Approximate odds of obtaining a particular Bonus - Discount at start of Contest
$100 / 641 / 91.57%
$500 / 55 / 7.86%
$5000 / 4 / 0.57%
The odds of obtaining a particular Bonus Discount will vary based on participating Ontario Honda Dealers and will change throughout the Contest Period as Bonus Discounts are claimed. The total number and particular quantities of Bonus Discounts available to be won will decrease as Bonus Discounts are claimed throughout the Contest Period.
There is a limit of one (1) Bonus Discount per person. Each Bonus Discount must be accepted as awarded and is not transferable, assignable or convertible to cash (except as may be specifically permitted by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion). No substitutions except at Sponsor’s option. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to substitute a Bonus Discount
with an item or items of equal or greater retail value. Each Bonus Discount will automatically expire at close of business on August 5, 2020. Bonus Discounts cannot be applied: (i) against past purchase/lease agreements; and/or (ii) to future purchase/lease agreements.
Photocopies and/or other reproductions of Bonus Discounts in any manner are strictly prohibited and will not be accepted. If due to a printing, production, online, internet, computer or other error of any kind, more Bonus Discounts (or, more Bonus Discounts of a certain amount) are claimed than intended to be awarded according to these Rules, or in the event that due to such error, a valid
Bonus Discount claim is revealed, making the number of valid Bonus Discount claims greater than the number and particular value of Bonus Discounts available under these Rules, then, in addition to having the right to terminate the Contest immediately, the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to rescind invalid Bonus Discount claims and/or to hold a random draw after the
Contest closes from among all eligible Bonus Discount claimants to award the remaining number of advertised Bonus Discounts in question. In no event and under no circumstances will the Sponsor be liable for more than the stated number and particular value of Bonus Discounts in these Rules or the number of Bonus Discounts appropriate to the actual distribution of Spins to the time of
termination of the Contest, as the case may be.
None of the Released Parties makes any representation or offers any warranty, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of any Bonus Discount awarded in connection with the Contest. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each confirmed winner understands and acknowledges that he or she may not seek reimbursement or pursue any legal or equitable remedy from either the
Sponsor or any of the Released Parties should his/her Bonus Discount fail to be fit for its purpose or is in any way unsatisfactory. For greater certainty and the avoidance of any doubt, by accepting a Bonus Discount, a confirmed winner agrees to waive all recourse against the Released Parties if the Bonus Discount or a component thereof does not prove satisfactory, either in whole or in part.
