General Rules

Anyone who creates multiple Twitter accounts to enter the Contest, or otherwise violates the Twitter Rules, may be disqualified.

All entries and AR Rooms submitted for the Bonus Mission will be screened by Safe and any entry which Safe deems, in its sole discretion, to be illegitimate, spam, obscene, unlawful, violent, harassing, libelous, or otherwise inappropriate for the Contest will be considered non-eligible.

Winners of the prizes will be randomly drawn from all eligible entries received during the Contest Period. Each selected entrant ("Entrant") will be notified by email not later than Friday, August 16, 2019 and must respond within five (5) business days of such notification. If the Entrant does not respond within this time frame, they may be disqualified and Safe may, in its sole discretion, select another entrant. Safe is not responsible for the failure of an Entrant to receive notification, or for our failure to receive an Entrant's response, for any reason whatsoever.

Before a winner can be declared, each Canadian Entrant must first correctly answer, unaided, a time-limited, mathematical, skill-testing question. Each Entrant may be required to sign a standard Release Agreement prior to being declared a winner.

Allow 4-6 weeks for shipment of any prize after verification of the winner’s address and contact information. Safe is not responsible for any change of email address, mailing address and/or telephone number of any Entrant.

All entries become the property of Safe, which assumes no responsibility for lost entries, for any failure of the website or the Twitter platform during the Contest Period, for any problems or technical malfunction of any telephone network or lines, computer online systems, servers, access providers, computer equipment, software, failure of any email or entry to be received on account of technical problems or traffic congestion on the Internet or at any website, or any combination thereof.

All personal and other information requested by and supplied to Safe for the purpose of the Contest must be truthful, complete, accurate and in no way misleading. Safe reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any contestant if such contestant, at any stage, supplies untruthful, incomplete, inaccurate or misleading information. Your name and email address will only be used to contact you for the purposes of this Contest, unless you opt-in to receive additional marketing communications or you win a Prize. See our Privacy Policy for more information on how we handle your personal information.

In the event of a dispute as to who submitted an entry, the entry shall be deemed submitted by the “authorized account holder" of the email address submitted at the time of Contest Code entry. “Authorized account holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. An Entrant may be requested to provide us with proof that they are the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the potentially winning entry.

If due to an error, there are more claims for prizes than Prizes, then Safe reserves the right to award the Prizes through a random drawing of eligible prize claims. No more than the stated number of Prizes shall be awarded.

Safe reserves the right to suspend, cancel or modify the Contest at any time if Safe determines that, for any reason, the Contest cannot be run as originally planned or if there is any other occurrence compromising the fairness or integrity of the Contest.

By entering the Contest, you agree to abide by the Contest Rules and the decisions of Safe, which are final.

The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, provincial and municipal laws. Void in Quebec, Hawaii, Florida, Alaska, Puerto Rico and wherever prohibited by law.
