HOW TO ENTER:
Contestants who wish to enter the Promotion are required to first visit www.americanonlinesurvey.com (the "Website") and complete the online registration form. To register for the Promotion, each contestant must include his/her correct and verifiable full name, e-mail address, and physical address (collectively, "Registration Data'') and reach the final Entry Confirmation page. Each qualified entry into the Promotion will be considered a “unique entry”. Contestants should enter the Promotion only one time a week. If multiple entries are submitted by a contestant more than the weekly limits mentioned in the preceding sentence, then only one (1) entry per week will qualify for entry in the Promotion. All other entries that are submitted by the same individual above the applicable limits will be rejected. Company reserves the right to reject any entry that it believes, in its sole and reasonable discretion, is fraudulent, incomplete or invalid. Company also holds the right to offer the Promotion on only specific Website registration pages. By registering for the Promotion, contestants agree to receive marketing e-mails from the Company and its advertising affiliates. All entrants who successfully register for the Promotion through the Website are considered the finalists.
COMPANY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ENTRIES, CLAIMS OR NOTICES THAT ARE LOST, LATE, ILLEGIBLE, MISDIRECTED, DAMAGED, INCOMPLETE OR INCORRECT. ON FAILING TO COMPLETE A PROMOTION ENTRY DURING THE PROMOTION PERIOD FOR ANY REASON INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WHERE YOU CANNOT ACCESS THE WEBSITE, YOU WILL NOT QUALIFY FOR ENTRY INTO THE PROMOTION.
IDENTIFICATION OF PARTICIPANTS:
Each entry submitted will be assigned an Entry Number (“EN”). For the purpose of these Rules, the "Promotion Database" consists of an entire list of EN numbers submitted during each calendar week during the Promotion Period.
$500 WINNER SELECTION PROCESS:
Company will randomly select one EN from the Promotion Database as a weekly $500 cash prize winner for each calendar week of the Promotion Period. The winning EN and associated entry should match the records maintained by Company for the Weekly Prize to be awarded. In case of a dispute, the information maintained by Company will be taken into consideration. Those entries will be taken into account which are made by the person under whose name the entry was registered, regardless of who actually submitted the entry. Make sure you use your correct name, e-mail address and physical address while registering. In case of any discrepancy, error, failure, or difficulty in the transmission of the ENs to Company for the Weekly Prize drawing, the drawing will be canceled at Company's sole discretion. In the event that a Weekly Prize is awarded, the Weekly Prize winner will receive an e-mail within thirty (30) days of selection (contestants should ensure that their Registration Data is precise and up to date). The Weekly Prize winner will be subject to eligibility verification which may require the Weekly Prize winner to execute and return a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release to the Company along with a picture proof of identification like driver's license, passport, voting card or similar government-issued identification, within thirty (30) days following the mail notification. Non-compliance within this period may result in the cancelation of the Weekly Prize and an alternate Weekly Prize winner will be selected, until a winner is designated. Weekly Prize checks will be mailed to the address as provided in the Registration Data entered by the winner. Return of any prize checks or prize notification as undeliverable, or any checks left uncashed for 90 days from the date of issue, will result in cancelation. Company is not responsible in any manner when a Weekly Prize winner has not received notification or prize check sent from Company.
