2018 Special Moments Contest - Terms of Contest

By participating in the 2018 Special Moments Campaign, you agree to the Terms of Use, including, without limitation, the Terms of the Contest specified below.

(a) Description

BCSO will hold a Special Moments Contest on social media from October 15 - November 12, 2018 where entrants can post photos on Instagram or Facebook of their special moments using the hashtags #SmileBC #BCOrtho #FindanOrtho and tagging @findanortho. For Instagram, profiles must be set to public. For Facebook, posts must be set to public. Entrants may also tag a friend in a BCSO contest post to enter. Every Monday during the contest period, a 1st Prize ($500) and a 2nd Prize ($250) winner will be selected by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists. Winners will be notified by email and will be sent a gift certificate of either $500 or $250 to go towards orthodontic services from a BCSO member in good standing.

(b) How to Enter

Entrants must post a picture on Instagram or Facebook of a special moment with the hashtags #SmileBC #BCOrtho #FindanOrtho and tag @findanortho, or they can tag a friend in the comments section of a BCSO contest post. The Contest begins at 9:00am Pacific Time ("PT") on October 15, 2018 and ends at 11:59pm PT on November 12, 2018 (the "Contest Period") after which time the Contest will be closed and no further entries shall be accepted.

(c) Eligibility restrictions

The contest is open to any member of the public that resides in the province of British Columbia, including existing and new patients of BCSO members. Should a winner be selected that is under the age of 18, a parent/guardian's email will be requested for verification. Participants agree to abide by applicable federal, provincial, local laws and regulations.

(d) Prizes

A prize of $500 and $250 will be awarded weekly during the contest period. Winners will be randomly selected by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists based on the Instagram and/or Facebook photos submitted during the contest period, or based on tags on BCSO contest posts.

Prizes have no cash value. No substitution of prize is offered. Prizes may be transferred to a third party if the winner does not require orthodontic treatment. However, the name of the third party must be given to BCSO prior to treatment. The name on the gift certificate and the person receiving orthodontic treatment must be the same.

The prize will be awarded only upon winner verification and approval by the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists. The weekly winners will be notified via their social media accounts, and their email (as well as the email of a parent/guardian should the winner be under the age of 18) every Monday during the contest period (as well as the Monday immediately following the contest close). The winner will then have fourteen (14) days to accept and respond with their information. If the winner is unable to be contacted within seven (7) days after being selected or is ineligible, the prize will be forfeited and another winner selected. Upon accepting the prize, the winner agrees to have his/her name and photo published on the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists' channels, as well as commits to any external media obligations regarding the contest, should they arise.

A winning certificate must be used within one year after the prize has been claimed. Expiration date will be indicated on the gift certificate.

(e) Other Guidelines

No purchase necessary. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, provincial, and local laws and regulations. The British Columbia Society of Orthodontists retain the right to disqualify any contestant if the rules are not followed. Any information collected by registering to enter the contest shall be used only in a manner consistent with these Contest Rules. Without limitation, the British Columbia Society of Orthodontists reserves the right to cancel, terminate, or modify the contest at their discretion.

Pricing relating to certain Member services or products may change at any time in BCSO’s sole discretion without notice.

BCSO does not verify, validate, or collect evidence of any regulatory authorization or certification from any Member. You should make whatever investigation you deem necessary or appropriate before purchasing any Member Service or Product to determine whether: (i) Member is qualified to provide orthodontic Services or Products; or (ii) the Service or Product is of the care and quality required. The BCSO Member is solely responsible for the care and quality of the goods and services being provided or the care and quality of the Products.

BCSO may, in its sole discretion, verify an entrant’s identity prior to processing a voucher. BCSO may also refuse to process a voucher or may cancel the awarding of a voucher as reasonably deemed necessary, to comply with applicable law or to respond to a case of misrepresentation, fraud or known or potential violations of the law or these Terms of the Contest.

(g) Vouchers

Vouchers are distributed by BCSO and are redeemable for certain services or products offered by, or facilitated through, a BCSO member in good standing. The Member is solely responsible for redeeming the Voucher. Furthermore, the Member is fully and solely responsible for the care and quality of all services and products it provides to you and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs (“Liabilities”) it may cause you to suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, whether related to the use or redemption of a Voucher or not.

These rules apply to all Vouchers that we award, unless a particular Voucher’s fine print states otherwise, and except as otherwise required by law. In the event of a conflict between these rules and a Voucher’s fine print, the Voucher’s fine print will control. Any attempt to redeem a Voucher in violation of these Terms of the will render the Voucher void.
