12. Addition Elle reserves the right to verify eligibility qualifications of each Prize winner. A Prize winner must comply with the Rules and correctly answer a time-limited, mathematical skill-testing question (without the assistance of another person or mechanical device) to be administered by a representative of Addition Elle during a pre-arranged, mutually convenient telephone call or as otherwise may be provided by Addition Elle. In addition to the foregoing and in order to be eligible to receive a Prize awarded hereunder, a Prize winner must execute a full release and affidavit of eligibility in a form to be provided by Addition Elle which relieves Reitmans from any and all liability for injury associated with any Prize awarded to him or her, as well as satisfy any and all laws and regulations and other criteria required by the Prize winner’s province or territory of residence. Once a Prize winner has satisfied these requirements, he or she will be entitled to claim the Prize. Should a Prize winner not claim his or her Prize within the specified time, not comply with the Rules, incorrectly answer the time-limited mathematical skill-testing question, or otherwise fail to satisfy any requirement contained herein, an alternate Prize winner will be selected by random draw conducted by Addition Elle.

13. If, by reason of a typographical or other error, more Prizes are claimed than the number set forth in the Rules, all individuals making purportedly valid claims will be included in a random draw to award the advertised number of Prizes available. No more than three (3) Prizes will be awarded in connection with the Contest.
