The registration instructions in the survey will request you to submit your name and e-mail address (if you have one). Entrants entering via the Web must have a valid e-mail address and may enter the drawing without completing the survey.

 

Alternatively, you may enter by printing your name, address, day-time telephone number, e-mail address (if you have one) and the name of the prize drawing on a 3 x 5 card and mail it to: MacLife.com Survey Sweepstakes, Future US, 4000 Shoreline Court, Suite 400, South San Francisco, CA 94080.

 

The Survey is scheduled to begin at 6:01 a.m. Eastern Time (United States) on or near May 3, 2008 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on or before May 15, 2008. The Sponsors reserve the right to extend the drawing period in the event our survey research requires prolonging the data collection period. Online entries must be received during the time period of data collection.

 

Mail-in entries must be postmarked between the start of this survey and no later than May 17, 2008. Only ONE (1) entry per person is permitted. All entries become the exclusive property of Future US, Inc., and will not be acknowledged or returned. No entries will be shared or distributed or sold to any third parties. Multiple submissions (more than one) of this survey by single individuals will result in forfeiture of drawing eligibility. Must be 13 years old or more to enter. If a winner is a minor, the prize will be awarded in the name of winner's parent or legal guardian and the winner must also provide a signed parental or guardian consent form, provided by the sponsor, within 7 days of notification attempt. Failure of the minor to return the guardian consent form will result in the forfeiture prize and selection of an alternate winner, who will be chosen through a random drawing from the remaining eligible entries.

 

Winners of the survey prizes will be determined by a random drawing conducted by a Future US representative on or about May 17, 2008, whose decision shall be final. The winner will be announced on or about May 17, 2008 when the winner will be notified by e-mail or by phone. Participation in the survey is not required in order to enter the prize-drawing. Equal dignity will be given to mail-in responses, and efforts will be taken to ensure that mail-in responses are indistinguishable from online entries in the drawing. MacLife.com has the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value.

 

Sponsors and their agencies shall not be liable for unsuccessful efforts to notify a winner. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received. No substitution or transfer of prizes or cash equivalent is permitted by the winner. Winner is solely responsible for any taxes of any kind on any prize received. Confirmation of the selection of a winner for this drawing can be obtained by sending an email request to offers@futureus-inc.com or by calling 650-872-1642. Future US is obligated to disclose only the first initial and last name of the winner, to protect that winner's privacy.

 

Sponsors and their agencies shall not be liable for (a) late, lost, damaged, incomplete, illegible, unintelligible, or postage-due entries; (b) telephone, electronic, program, network, Internet, or computer failures of any kind; or (c) failed, incomplete, garbled, unintelligible, or delayed computer messages. Sponsors and their agencies shall not be liable for any injury or damage to an entrant's or any other person's computer related to or resulting from entering the Survey. By completing the Survey, entrants release and hold Sponsors and their agencies harmless from any and all damages and claims of any kind in connection with the Survey. Sponsors reserve the right to confirm all winners for eligibility and compliance with the rules and regulations. Sponsors reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to cancel or suspend this drawing should viruses, bugs, Internet failure or other causes beyond the Sponsors control corrupt the administration, security, or proper play of the drawing.
