The total Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) of the prizes offered in the Contest is $51,600. The odds of winning any prize is based upon the number of eligible entries received and the skill of the Participants. If for any reason, a prize, or any part of a prize, is unavailable, Sponsors reserve the right to modify the Contest in its sole discretion and award a substitute prize, or portion of prize, of comparable or greater value. Further, Sponsors reserve the right to deny any Participant or winner access to the App or to the prize if, in their sole discretion, the Participant’s or winner’s behavior is disruptive, belligerent, abusive, intended to annoy, threaten or harass, or not in the spirit of the Contest. Under such circumstances, the individual may forfeit the prize and an alternate individual may be selected, time permitting.

Sponsors and the Contest Entities shall have no responsibility or obligation to a potential winner or to any Participant who is unable or unavailable to, or who does not for any reason, accept or utilize a prize or any portion of a prize. In the event a potential winner or Participant does not or cannot accept a prize, an alternate potential winner will be determined among eligible Participants.  All costs and expenses not specifically listed above as part of the prizes are solely the Participant’s responsibility. The value of the prizes will be taxable to the winner as income. All U.S. federal, state, and local tax liability, and any other costs and expenses associated with acceptance or use of the prizes not specifically provided for in these Official Rules are solely the Participant’s responsibility (regardless of whether the prize, in whole or in part, is used). Prizes are not transferable.

8. Winner Determination: Winners will be determined based on the highest overall Score. In the event of a tie among Scores in any Contest prize category, the winner will be the tied Participant with the greatest number of Regional Miles for that period; if the mileage is also tied, a random drawing will be conducted between those tied Participants to determine the winner.

All winners will be determined by the App Administrator. All Trip and mileage quantities are subject to review and verification by the App Administrator. User categorization (labelling) of Trips (driver, passenger, etc.) will be analyzed for fairness, and the App Administrator reserves the right to judge the validity of Trip categorization.

Scores are available to Participants after a reasonable amount of Trips have been completed (typically in one day, with an average amount of driving). All Scores will be based on a rolling, fourteen (14) day average of each Participant’s Trips. For example: on day 1, you start receiving Points. Until day 14, your Driving Score will continue to be the average of Points from all of your Trips. On day 15, the Trips and Driving Scores will drop your Points from day 1, averaging only the past two weeks of Trips. Each two week period stands on its own. This Driving Score will appear in the dashboard of your App.

Participants will also appear on the in-App leaderboard. The leaderboard is intended for Participants’ interest and comparison purposes only. A Participant’s current standing on the applicable leaderboard does not denote actual standing in the Contest. Participants appearing on a leaderboard during the Contest may not be eligible for prizes per eligibility requirements in Section 2 or participation requirements in Section 4.

9. Winner Notification: Potential prize winners will be notified by Promosis, via email, using the email address provided at the time of Enrollment, and, among other things described in this paragraph, will be required to complete an online winner verification and liability/publicity release within three (3) days of the date of the initial email notification, or the prize may be forfeited. Potential grand prize winners will be notified by Promosis, via email, using the email address provided at the time of Enrollment, and will be required to complete and have notarized an Affidavit of Eligibility and liability/publicity release that must be returned to Promosis within three (3) days of the date of the initial email notification, or prize may be forfeited. Potential winners may also be subject to criminal and other background checks prior to final designation as a winner. Sponsors are not responsible for changes to a Participant’s email address subsequent to enrolling. Administrators and Sponsors shall have no liability for any potential prize winning notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by any potential prize winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, any potential prize winner does not respond within (3) days of the first notification, or if the prize notification or prize is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential prize winner, the potential prize winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected from remaining eligible Participants with the highest applicable Score. All winners of prizes aggregating to and/or totaling $600 or more will be required to complete and have notarized an Affidavit of Eligibility and liability/publicity release that must be returned to Promosis before prize(s) are awarded. Winners of such prizes will be issued an IRS Form 1099-MISC for aggregate value of the prizes received.
