4. How to Enter: 

a. Through a Panel: During the Promotion Period, the Sponsor will operate country-specific Panels for which individuals have registered or may register. The Promotion Period consists of four (4) separate Entry Periods. The prizes for which you are eligible depend on your country of residence as set forth in Section 6 below. Limit: New Panellists registering with an applicable Panel during the Promotion Period may receive: one (1) entry into the applicable Entry Period draw for registering and completing the registration survey, if any. Each eligible entrant may receive: one (1) entry into the applicable Entry Period draw each time an entrant either: completes a survey; receives a 'screened out' notice or message when attempting to take a survey; receives a 'quota full' message when attempting to take a survey; or updates his/her profile upon request of the Panel, if any. Entries from all available Panels for each country will be included in each Prize Draw for the applicable country. Each eligible entrant must have his/her own e-mail address, separate from the e-mail address of any other eligible entrant. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different e-mail addresses, identities, registrations and log-ins, by joining multiple Panels or any other methods, will void that participant’s entries and may subject such individual to additional sanctions or penalties in accordance with the applicable Panel Terms and Conditions. 

b. Through Mail-In Entry (only for U.S. residents): To enter without completing a survey, hand print your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, e-mail address (if any), and age on a 3" x 5" piece of paper and mail it with proper postage to "2013-2014 Survey Sampling International Prize Draw," c/o ePrize, Department: 599977 PO Box: 5046 Kalamazoo MI 49003-5046. You will receive one (1) entry into the applicable Entry Period draw. Limit: One (1) per envelope. All mail-in entries must be handwritten. All mail-in entries must be postmarked no later than the "end date" or if the end date is on a Sunday, the first non-holiday weekday after the "end date" and received by "receipt date" specified in the chart above. All entries become the exclusive property of the Sponsor, and none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by the Sponsor. The Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, misdirected or postage-due entries, which will be disqualified.
For All Methods of Entry: Use of any automated system to participate in the Prize Draw is strictly prohibited and will result in disqualification and all entries submitted or received via such automated system will be void. Neither the Sponsor nor the Administrator are responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible or misdirected information or entries, which will be disqualified and void. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of any entrant, the authorised account holder (as defined herein) of the e-mail address used by, or connected to, the eligible entrant will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorised account holder” is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, Internet service provider or any other organisation responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorised account holder.

For Residents of France Only: Upon written request, the Administrator will refund to you the expense of your Internet connection incurred to enter the Prize Draw. The amount refunded to you will be €0.50, regardless of the actual expense incurred by you. To request a refund, please send your request, and any necessary justification, to: "2013-2014 Survey Sampling International Prize Draw", c/o ePrize, Inc., One ePrize Drive, Pleasant Ridge, MI 48069, U.S.A.

5. Prize Drawings and Verification of Potential Winners: Winning is contingent upon complying with all the terms and conditions of, and fulfilling all requirements contained in, these Official Rules. The Administrator, an independent judging organisation, will randomly select one (1) potential Prize Draw winner from all eligible entries received from residents of each country during each Entry Period on the dates specified in Section 3 above. Each draw will take place at the Administrator’s offices at the address set forth above, at around 17:00 GMT. Entries, whether winning or non-winning, will not be carried over, and will not be included, in any subsequent Entry Period draws. The potential winners shall be notified either by e-mail, telephone or registered post/mail after the date of the Prize Draw. Except where prohibited, each potential winner may be required to sign and return winner documentation, as determined by the Sponsor at its sole discretion, to confirm eligibility, release the Sponsor and Administrator of liability or for any other reason deemed necessary by the Sponsor. If the potential winner has not yet reached the age of majority in his or her country of residence, then the parent or legal guardian of the potential winner must sign and return all of the required documents. If documentation is required, it must be received by the Sponsor or Administrator within the time frame indicated at the time of the initial win notification, otherwise the potential winner forfeits the prize. In addition, the potential winners from Belgium, Canada and Singapore, must correctly answer a time-limited, skill-testing question in order to receive the prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required documentation (if applicable), does not answer the skill-testing question correctly (if applicable), or the prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits all rights in and/or to the prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the Administrator will award the applicable prize to an alternative winner following a random draw from among all remaining eligible entries from the applicable country. Only three (3) alternative draws will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately ten (10) to twelve (12) weeks after winner verification. Any un-awarded prize(s) will not be combined with the prize(s) for, or otherwise carried over to, any subsequent Entry Period.
