- Unless stated otherwise or delivery is electronic, giveaways are for Canadian and United States residents only.
- Entrants must be natural persons of the age of majority in their primary country of residence, or in their other political subdivision of residence, as applicable.
- Winners are chosen at random, which typically means by a method employing the free tools available at www.random.org, or other similar tools; we also may choose a winner by awarding the prize to the first eligible person or persons to respond to our free call to action.

- A winner’s tax considerations and any tax or tax-related obligations are entirely their own. Since all of our giveaways are for cash, goods and/or services valued at less than US$600, we don’t and won’t be sending any winner a form 1099-misc for US income tax purposes.
