Homecoming Survey Contest - Official Contest Rules



The Homecoming Survey Contest (the “Contest”) is open only to U of M alumni who have a valid email address in the University of Manitoba’s alumni database at the time of entry (“Eligible Participants”) and completed the Homecoming survey in fall 2016. Excluded from eligibility are any employees, representatives or agents of the University of Manitoba.


The Contest runs from October 12th at 9 a.m. Central Standard Time (“CST”) to October 26th at 11:59 p.m CST. No purchase is necessary. Upon completion and submission of the Homecoming Survey, Eligible Participants will be entered into the Contest for one (1) chance to win a Prize as described in these rules.


The prize winner will be chosen randomly by External Relations. The Winner will be contacted by the email address that was provided by the Eligible Participant at the time of entering the Contest. The University will email the Prize Winner at least three (3) times within five (5) days of the contest closing date. If the Prize Winner does not respond to being contacted in that time, another Prize Winner will be randomly selected and the initial Prize Winner will be disqualified and will have no recourse towards the University or anyone involved in the Contest.

The Prize Winner must provide proof of identification, as well as answer (without assistance) a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question. The Prize Winner must sign a declaration, waiver and release, affirming he or she has read, understood and agreed to be bound by these Rules, and releases the University of Manitoba, its affiliates, representatives, employees and agents from any and all liability of any kind whatsoever arising out of the Tentative Prize Winner’s participation in the Contest and/or receipt and execution of any prize awarded. The decisions of the University in relation to this Contest will be final and binding on all entrants.


There is one prize of a Dyson DC66 Animal Upright Vacuum. The winner (or designate) will be asked to claim the prize at the University of Manitoba.


The University of Manitoba, its affiliates, representatives, employees and agents, shall not be in any manner whatsoever be liable or responsible for theft, loss, technical malfunctions, computer and/or telephone network malfunctions, software problems, online traffic congestion, any human or computer generated error, which may in any manner affect the receipt of Contest entries, the notification of winners, the awarding or distribution of any prize under the Contest.


The University of Manitoba will not be collecting any personal information of any kind during the Contest, other than contact information in order to notify the prize winner. This information will not be kept past the Contest finish.


If for any reason the online portion of this Contest is not capable of being completed as planned including, but not limited to computer virus, bugs, tampering, technical failures or other causes beyond the control of the University of Manitoba, the University of Manitoba reserves the right to cancel, suspend or modify the Contest.
