UNB does not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Contest website.

By entering the Contest, each entrant agrees to be bound by the Rules. An entrant may not submit more than one Entry. If it is discovered that an entrant has submitted more than one Entry, such entrant will be disqualified from participating in the Contest. Any attempt or suspected attempt by an entrant to submit more than one Entry by using multiple email addresses or any other means will void all Entries for such entrant. Entries that are late, lost, incomprehensible, misdirected, contain an erroneous phone and/or email address or that do not otherwise conform to the Rules may be disqualified by UNB. The Released Parties (defined below) are not responsible for, and accept no lability whatsoever in relation to, any lost, late, misdirected, damaged, incomplete, invalid or illegible Entries (all of which are void). Proof of entry submission does not constitute proof of receipt by UNB.

There are 5 prizes (the “Prize”) consisting of a $250 tuition credit. The Prize is available to be won by one single Prize winners (a “Prize Winner”). The approximate cash value of the Prize is $250 CAD.

The Prize must be accepted as awarded and is not transferable, substitutable, refundable, assignable or convertible to cash (except as may be specifically permitted by UNB in its sole and absolute discretion).

Any other costs or expenses, including taxes on any of the Prize, incurred by a Prize Winner in claiming or using his/her Prize, not expressly stated herein as being included in the Prize, will be the responsibility of such Prize Winner.

The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible Entries received by UNB.

On Sept. 12, 2022 at 12 p.m. ADT, 5 entrants will be selected by a random draw from all eligible Entries received during the Contest Period. The selected entrants will be notified by UNB or its agents by telephone or email no later than 24 HOURS AFTER DRAW TIME and must respond within 7 calendar days of notification. If a selected entrant does not respond accordingly, fails to comply with any of the requirements herein, or otherwise fails to comply with the Rules, he or she will be disqualified and will not receive a Prize and another entrant may be selected in UNB’s sole discretion. UNB is not responsible for the failure for any reason whatsoever of a selected entrant to receive notification or of UNB to receive a selected entrant’s response.
