Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a Prize in whole or in part in the event that all or any component of the Prize is unavailable. Prize winner is solely responsible for all costs not expressly described herein.

HOW PRIZE IS AWARDED
11. All eligible persons that login to the Contest App may collect points by performing certain tasks on the Contest App. The Contest can be won by accumulating the most points. At the end of the Contest Period and absent any ties, the eligible Entrant with the most points will be identified as the potential First prize winner, the two (2) eligible Entrants with the second and third most points will be identified as the potential Second Prize winners, the five (5) eligible Entrants with the next most points will be identified as the potential Third Prize winners, the ten (10) eligible Entrants with the next most points will be identified as the potential Fourth Prize winners, the ten (10) eligible Entrants with the next most points will be identified as the potential Fifth Prize winners and the twelve (12) eligible Entrants with the next most points will be identified as the potential Sixth Prize winners (each a “Potential Winner”). A Potential Winner is not an actual winner, and is not entitled to or eligible to receive any prize unless and until such Potential Winner is verified by Sponsor to meet all eligibility criteria and compliance with these Contest Rules and the Terms of Use for the Contest App, and the Potential Winner completes and returns a Prize Claim Form. Once a Potential Winner complies with all obligations under these Contest Rules and has been verified as eligible, that person will be awarded the prize. Prizes will be mailed to the address provided by the Potential Winner in the Prize Claim Form.

12. In the event that more than one eligible person ties as a Potential Winner, a three-step tie-breaker procedure (the “Tie-Breaker”) will be used as follows to determine the Potential Winner(s): (1) the Entrant who submitted the most photos or captions will be deemed the winner; (2) if a tie still remains, the Entrant who participated in the most distinct Contest App actions logged will be deemed the winner; and (3) if a tie still remains, the Entrant who participated in the most IKEA-focused Contest App actions will be deemed the winner. Any entrant who ties as a Potential Winner, but does not win the prize for which he or she is tied, will be eligible to win any other, remaining prizes using the same “Tie-Breaker” procedure as defined above to break any additional ties. In no way will Sponsor award more than the number of prizes as defined above under the “Prizes and Odds of Winning” section.

13. Each Potential Winner will be notified via the email registered with the Contest App. If a Potential Winner cannot be reached or does not respond within 14 days of initial notification attempt, they will no longer be designated as a Potential Winner and another Potential Winner will be identified at Sponsor’s discretion.

14. Sponsor will identify a Potential Winner promptly after the end of the Contest Period, and will attempt to verify the Potential Winner’s eligibility, or select an alternative Potential Winner within a reasonable time thereafter. Prize must be accepted as awarded and, except as expressly identified herein, no substitution, assignment or transfer of Prize by a winner is permitted. Prize is not redeemable for cash.

PRIZE CLAIM FORM
15. Potential Winners agree to provide Sponsor with proof of name, age, email address and residential address. Prize Claim Forms will include a skill-testing question, publicity consent, and release/waiver in the form required by Sponsor. The winner’s name, Province of residence and likeness may be used in publicity and/or advertising by Sponsor.

16. Prior to being declared a winner of the Prize, a Potential Winner must first correctly answer the mathematical skill-testing question on the Prize Claim Form provided in the time specified on the Prize Claim Form, without the assistance of another person and without any mechanical, electronic or other similar assistance such as a calculator or computer.

17. Completed and signed Prize Claim Forms must be emailed back to: melissa.mirowski@ikea.com. THE SIGNED PRIZE CLAIM FORM MUST BE RECEIVED AT THE EMAIL ADDRESS INDICATED ABOVE NO LATER THAN TEN (10) BUSINESS DAYS FOLLOWING DELIVERY, OR PRIZE WILL BE FORFEITED. It is recommended that a completed Prize Claim Form be kept for your records. All Prize Claim Forms become the property of the Sponsor, and none will be returned.

18. Prize Claim Forms obtained from unauthorized sources or which are illegible, mutilated, altered, forged, counterfeited or irregular in any way are void.
