Method(s) of entry for a specific sweepstakes will be set forth in the terms of participation of that sweepstakes, including without limitation by completing a survey as further described in the app.
To the extent applicable, violation of any such limit may result in the voiding of those entries in excess of the limit. Influence Mobile reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify registered user from ALL Influence Mobile sweepstakes (including the specific sweepstakes at issue) and/or terminate such registered user’s Influence Mobile account preventing further use of the Influence Mobile service and/or to otherwise take necessary and appropriate measures to protect their respective legal rights, if Influence Mobile determines in its sole discretion that a registered user has engaged in repeated, blatant or egregious violations of the entry limit or has used automated, robotic, programmed or like means (including use of third party software programs) to take prescribed action(s) and thereby enter any Influence Mobile sweepstakes.
Proof of performance of a given prescribed activity does not constitute proof of receipt of same or proof of entry in a given Influence Mobile sweepstakes. Should Influence Mobile acknowledge receipt of an entry, such actions by Influence Mobile will not constitute any representation that the entry is eligible for the applicable sweepstakes or that the registered user has been selected as a prize winner in such sweepstakes.

Influence Mobile shall use its sole discretion in applying the foregoing criteria in assessing the validity of content and any content which is in violation of the foregoing criteria will not result in entry in the applicable sweepstakes. Should Influence Mobile re-post or comment on any such content, such actions by Influence Mobile will not constitute any representation that the content resulted in an entry in the applicable sweepstakes or that the registered user has been selected as a prize winner in such sweepstakes. In addition, as winner(s) of specific sweepstakes will be selected via random drawing (as discussed in Section 4 below), the nature/quality of such content will not be taken into account in the winner selection procedure (provided that the content is in compliance with the aforementioned criteria.)

To enter any Influence Mobile sweepstakes, regardless of what other means of entry may be available to you, print your name, full mailing address, telephone number, your Influence Mobile account ID, and email address on a 3 x 5 inch (or 7.5 x 12.5 cm) piece of paper and mail it to the address listed at the top of these Official Rules. Upon receipt of your paper entry, you will be entered into the sweepstakes ongoing at the time your paper entry is received. Each mail-in entry must be in a separate postmarked envelope.

NOTE: THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE SWEEPSTAKES ENTRIES PER PERSON, REGARDLESS OF ENTRY METHOD.
For each specific sweepstakes, winner(s) will be selected via random drawing from among all eligible entries received for such sweepstakes. Odds of winning a drawing depend on the total number of eligible entries received for the applicable sweepstakes. Potential winner(s) for a given sweepstakes will be notified via the app and may be required to provide a valid street address (in the United States or Canada, excluding Quebec Province) for prize shipment. To be a prize winner, you must have a valid Influence Mobile account at the time of prize award. Influence Mobile reserves the right to condition of eligibility and receipt of prize on potential winner signing and returning an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release and a Publicity Release (where lawful), within a reasonable time period designated by Influence Mobile. Should potential winner fail to return the completed Affidavit/Release (if applicable), if potential winner fails to provide valid street address for prize fulfillment/award upon Influence Mobile’s request (if applicable), if potential winner cannot be contacted by Influence Mobile, if prize is returned as undeliverable, or if potential winner is determined to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules (including the terms of participation of a specific sweepstakes), such potential winner will be disqualified and the applicable prize forfeited without compensation of any kind. In such case, Influence Mobile may select an alternate winner from among all remaining eligible entries received for the applicable sweepstakes.
If a Canadian resident isn selected in a random drawing for a specific sweepstakes, in order to be deemed a potential prize winner, he/she must first correctly answer a time-based mathematical skill-testing question without assistance of any kind.
Each specific sweepstakes will have its own prizes. Prizes may include, by way of example only (and such example is NOT binding upon Influence Mobile in any manner): points or actual physical rewards. The terms of participation of a specific sweepstakes will identify the prize(s) available to be won, the quantity of prize(s) available (and, should there be different prize levels, the quantity of prize(s) of each prize level available), the approximate retail value of the prize(s), restrictions on acceptance and use of the prize(s). All prize values are expressed in US Dollars.
For all Influence Mobile sweepstakes, registered users can only win one (1) prize per day, two (2) prizes during any four (4) day period, and three (3) prizes over any eight (8) day period.
For all Influence Mobile sweepstakes, winners are not allowed to substitute their prize. Influence Mobile, however, may substitute a prize/prize element due to unavailability of prize/prize element for any reason and only then for a prize/prize element of equal or greater value. Prizes are not transferable except with the prior express written consent of Influence Mobile, which may be granted or withheld in its sole discretion and without liability of any kind. All expenses related to acceptance or use of prize which are not specified in these Official Rules (including the terms of participation of a specific sweepstakes) are the winner’s sole responsibility. Winner is also solely responsible for any and all taxes on the value of prizes won, which will be reported to governmental tax authorities as required by law. For U.S. residents, should a registered user receive prizes (and/or rewards in the Influence Mobile Rewards Program) which equal or exceed $600 [USD] in value in a given calendar year, such registered user will be issued an IRS 1099 Tax Form for the total value of prizes won and rewards received from Influence Mobile. Canadian residents may be responsible for U.S. Foreign Withholding Tax on prizes won/rewards received. In all cases, registered users agree to fully cooperate with Influence Mobile and its designees relative to its fulfillment of its tax reporting obligations under applicable law.
