Rewards are subject to all applicable federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes the entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and the Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Rewards. Receiving a reward is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein. Void where prohibited.
A. Fixed Rewards
A fixed reward can be obtained by all participants who have been invited to participate in an activity or stream of activities that is considered as high effort (is considered as high effort: an activity or stream of activity which requires a higher involvement from the participant due to either a higher time investment required from participants to complete the activity or activity stream or due to the difficulty to complete the activity or activity stream). Activities specific to fixed rewards will not be sent to all participants; only participants with the desired profile will be invited.
In case a fixed reward is applicable, this will be communicated to the participants in the invitation that they receive on the e-mail address provided upon registration. In case participants fit the profile, they will get access to the specific (stream of) activities. The start of the activity or stream of activities and the schedule will always be communicated in an invitation that the participants will receive on the e-mail address they provided upon registration. Every invitation will mention the time interval applicable to take part in activity stream. Only participation within the specified time interval is taken into account in order to be eligible for the fixed reward.
Fixed rewards will be offered to participants depending on the number of activities they completed and the quality of their responses. Participants are expected to respond to topics, challenges or surveys that appears on the platform (except for the Lounge), in a detailed and in-depth manner.
Winners selection process
If a participant complied to the rules described in the ‘Rewards’ section above, the participant will be selected to receive a reward proportionately to the number of the activities they completed within an activity stream, but only if the number of completed activities represents at least 50% of the total number of activities within a stream of activities.
A participant can also receive the maximum reward only if they completed all activities within a given stream of activities.
3. Rewards status
Vouchers are subject to their terms and conditions and may not be returned, redeemed for cash (except to the extent required by law) or used as payment on or credit to any credit card account. They are not valid on prior purchases. Vouchers will not be replaced if lost or stolen. In no event will the voucher value exceed the stated value. In the event the winner purchases more than the stated value worth of merchandise, the winner will be solely responsible for payment of those additional costs. There is no reward substitution except as may be authorized by The Sponsor in its sole discretion. The Reward is not transferable or assignable. The Winner is responsible for all taxes and fees associated with voucher receipt and/or use.
4. General conditions
The decisions of the Sponsor with respect to all aspects of a Reward are final and binding on all entrants without right of appeal, including, without limitation, any decisions regarding the eligibility/ disqualification of entries and/or entrants. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain a reward by using multiple/ different e-mail addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other method, will void that entrant’s participation; also, that entrant may be disqualified. Use of any automated system or service to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the e-mail address used to register will be deemed to be the entrant. The ‘authorized account holder’ is the natural person assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address.
