All taxes are the winner’s responsibility. All details, including but not limited to size and color will be determined by Sponsor. No substitution, cash redemption or transfer of prizes allowed except with Sponsor’s permission (which may be granted or withheld for any reason) or where required by law. All gift cards are subject to the terms and conditions on the gift card. If potential winners cannot accept prize, the prize may be forfeited in its entirety and awarded to an alternate winner. In the event that a potential winner forfeits the prize or is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only one alternate drawing will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.

6. Winner Selection: On or about October 23, 2023, a random drawing for potential winners will be conducted from among all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. Each potential winner will be notified by Sponsor through the Social Medial Channel used to enter. For potential winners who entered through Facebook or Instagram, Sponsor will direct message each potential winner; potential winners should respond within one day in order to start the prize claim process. For potential winners who entered through TikTok, potential winners are required to accept a @DQCanada follow request within one day to allow for communication of the prize acceptance requirements. All potential winners will be directed by private message to provide their name, email address, mailing address, and age to confirm eligibility and for prize fulfillment purposes within two days and must correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question before being declared a winner. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to respond or provide the requested information within the required time period, fails to correctly answer a mathematical skill testing question, or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these official rules. In the event that a potential winner forfeits the prize or is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Only one alternate drawing will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded.


7. Publicity: By accepting a prize, winners agree, where lawful, that Sponsor and its affiliates may use winner’s name, likeness, biographical information, voice and statements attributed to winner (if truthful) for advertising and promotional purposes without additional consideration or approval.

Entries: Proof of sending the entry does not constitute proof that the entry was received. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, damaged, garbled, corrupted, misdirected, illegible, incomplete, or stolen entries. All entries become the property of the Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Any attempts by any entrant to enter more than the allowed number of times by using multiple or different email addresses, identities or other methods will void those entrant's entries. Automated entries (including but not limited to entries submitted using any bot, script, macro, or sweepstakes service), third party entries, copies, facsimiles and/or mechanical reproductions are not permitted and may be disqualified.

Normal time, toll, connection and usage rates, if any, charged by your internet service provider will apply. If there is a dispute about an entry, the authorized account holder is deemed the entrant. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, Sponsor and Administrator will rely on the information included in entrant’s Social Account profile and handle and any additional information provided by such entrant through the winner confirmation process.


8. Release: By accepting a prize, winners: (1) release and discharge Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Sponsor and its parent company, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies and all of their respective employees, officers, directors, franchisees, representatives and agents (the “released parties”) from all liability or damage due in whole or part to the acceptance, possession, use or misuse of a prize, or participation in this promotion; and (2) waive any “moral rights” in the entry.


The released parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, Sponsor, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the promotion; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the promotion; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the promotion or the processing of entries; (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the promotion or receipt or use of any prize or while traveling to or from any prize-related activity; or (6) liability in connection with the promotion. If for any reason an entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the promotion during the Promotion Period.


9. Fraud/Technical Failure: Sponsor reserves the right to cancel or modify the promotion if fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity of the promotion, as determined by Sponsor. In such event, Sponsor reserves the right to determine winners from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any individual tampering with the entry process or the operation of the promotion or to be acting in violation of these official rules or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike, improper or disruptive manner. An attempt to deliberately damage any website or undermine the legitimate operation of a promotion is a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these official rules is not a waiver of that provision.
