1. THE SPONSOR:
razeup Corp. (referred to herein as “razeup” or “Sponsor”) is a North American commercial technology platform built “for charities”. The company is a Canadian corporation.
2. THE WEBSITE:
The razeup website (www.razeup.com/ca) (the “Website”) allows eligible individuals (see restrictions below) to enter into the sweepstakes hosted on the Website (each a “Contest”). Featured charitable causes (each “Charity”) will receive a portion of funds raised.
3. APPLICABILITY OF THE RULES:
Here’s some stuff from our lawyers, so it’s important. First, these General Rules provide the terms and conditions applicable to every Contest on the razeup website launched on or after January 1, 2023.
(A) Contest Rules. Every Contest also has its own, additional, Contest-specific terms and conditions (the “Contest Rules”). The Contest Rules can be found at the bottom on each Contest’s webpage on the Website. If there is a conflict or inconsistency between these General Rules and the Contest Rules, the Contest Rules will govern. Any mention or reference to the “General Rules” with respect to any specific Contests will mean both these General Rules and the applicable Contest Rules, taken as a whole.
(B) Binding Contract. The General Rules (including any Contest Rules) form a binding contract between razeup and each Contest participant (a “Participant.”) Entry into any Contest constitutes Participant’s full and unconditional agreement to the General Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Website and all Contests. If you do not agree to these General Rules (including the applicable Contest Rules) do not enter the Contest(s).
(C) Updates to the General Rules. These General Rules may be updated from time to time. Please check these General Rules (including all relevant Contest Rules) regularly to ensure that you understand the terms that apply at the time that you enter the Contest.
The sweepstakes are open to individuals who are:
(i) over the age of majority in his/her province or territory or state of residence and
(ii) are NOT:
(a) a director, officer, employee, representative or any of their respective parents, subsidiaries, or service agencies, any entity engaged in the development, production or distribution/handling of materials for the Sweepstakes, or any other entity engaged in the administration or execution of this Sweepstakes (collectively, “Sweepstakes Entities”)
(b) the member of any immediate families (defined as parents, siblings, children, and spouses, regardless of where they live) or households (whether or not related) of any of the foregoing such persons and
(iii) are legal residents of Canada (excluding residents of the Province of Quebec) or the United States (excluding residents of the States of Florida and New York).
The Sponsor shall have the right at any time to require proof of identity and/or eligibility to participate in the Sweepstakes. Failure to provide such proof may result in disqualification.
5. HOW TO ENTER:
Each Contest will have a starting date and time and ending date and time (the “Entry Period”) specified in the Contest Rules. Only those entries received by Sponsor during the Entry Period will be valid. Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for all Contests.
(A)Contests. All Contests will provide the following two (2) ways to enter:
(i) Enter the contest with Purchase. To enter by this method, visit the Website, click the “Enter Now” button from the Contest webpages. This will introduce a new page. The next step involves:
- A purchase by choosing the amount
- Then provide your full, legal name, contact, and payment information and complete your purchase.
On the Sponsor’s receipt of a purchase, a participant will automatically receive entry codes and be entered for a chance to win the Contest.
The number of entries codes awarded may correspond to the dollar value of the purchase, as specified on the Contest webpage at the time of Participant’s purchase.
The Sponsor reserves the right, at their sole discretion, to amend the corresponding number of entries to be awarded for a particular dollar value of a purchase from time-to-time in its sole and absolute discretion. Participant will receive the corresponding number of entries indicated on the applicable Contest webpage at the time of Participant’s purchase. Individuals may purchase as many times as desired.
(ii) No Purchase Necessary. To enter the Sweepstakes without Purchase, entrants can go to the website www.razeup.com/ca/npn and to the specific Contest and complete the form and write an original essay of 200-250 words about a charity they support. Each Essay must be an original composition by the entrant, written specifically for the Sweepstakes. Entries that are not original, will NOT be honoured and will be deemed void. Then the entrant will receive an email with one (1) draw code. Every entrant is allowed to submit one (1) ‘Entry without Purchase’ or ‘No Purchase Necessary’ (NPN) per day, receiving one (1) Draw Code. The Draw Code, evidencing entry into the Sweepstakes will be emailed to you within twenty-four (24) hours of placing your order. If the Sweepstakes Draw Code is not received within twenty-four (24) hours, you should contact the Sponsor to follow up on the order.
(B) Special Promotions. razeup may, in its discretion, run various special promotions in connection with the Contests. For example, it may, for a temporary period during the Entry Period, offer Participants “bonus entries” in connection with any entry submission, or it may offer Participants the opportunity to enter multiple Contests simultaneously. Each entry that is awarded in connection with any special promotion (a) will constitute a single, independent entry in the applicable Contest(s), (b) will be treated the same as any other entry to the Contest(s), and (c) will have the same chance of winning as any other entry.
6. ENTRY LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS:
A few things to be aware of regarding entries:
(A) Only accurate and complete entries submitted during the Entry Period and received by Sponsor are eligible.
(B) Any incomplete, illegible, corrupted, or untimely entries are also void and ineligible to win.
(C) Proof of submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by Sponsor. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, misdirected, technically corrupted or garbled entries, or for other submission problems of any kind, whether caused mechanical, human or electronic error, all of which are void and ineligible to win.
(D) Additionally, Sponsor is not responsible for any telephone, electronic, hardware, software, network, Internet, or computer malfunctions, failures, or difficulties.
(E) If a Participant’s purchase is refunded, any entries associated with such purchase will be withdrawn and not eligible to win.
Additional Information regarding entries:
(A) Required Information. Participants must provide all required information specified on the Contest’s page or entry form to be eligible to enter and win.
(B) Email Address Requirements. To receive valid entries, Participant must provide a valid email address for which the Participant is the authorized owner. Multiple Participants may not share the same email address. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any Participant, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the Participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential Winners and/or Winners (as defined below) may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Any entries connected to an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address, or linked to an authorized account holder other than Participant, are void and ineligible to win. Any conduct in violation of this Section is strictly prohibited and will void all entries for that Participant and may result in disqualification of Participant from all Contests, at Sponsor’s discretion.
(C) No automated entry devices. All entries must be submitted by the individual Participant to be valid. Use, or attempted use, of any robotic, automated, programmed, mechanical, or other non-manual entry methods will void all entries for that Participant and will result in disqualification of the Participant from all Contests, at Sponsor’s discretion. No copies, facsimiles, or other mechanical or electronic reproductions of entries will be accepted. Sponsor has the sole right and discretion to make a determination that Participant used or attempted to use any such prohibited automated entry methods.

Any alternate Potential Winner will be notified as per the procedures outlined in the General Rules (time permitting). Sponsor reserves the right to modify the Winner notification and/or confirmation and verification procedures connected with the drawing of an alternate Potential Winner, if any.
Subject to any restrictions expressly stated in the General Rules, Winners will receive the Prizes(s) identified on each Contest’s webpage. Sponsor shall solely determine the specifics of all elements of all Prizes (including timing for fulfilment of Prizes, for example paying out the prize in monthly instalments, and travel options, if applicable). The approximate retail value of any Prize will be specified in the Contest Rules. Winners are responsible for ensuring they timely and fully accept the Prize at the specified Prize location(s) and within the specified Prize fulfilment period.
The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received by the applicable Entry Deadline, unless otherwise stated below. All prizes must be accepted as awarded, except Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with an alternate prize of equal or greater monetary value.
All Winners are entitled, at their discretion, to refuse to accept some or all of the Prize(s) that they are eligible to receive and, in such instances, will be deemed to have forfeited the Prize.
