Participants must provide valid and accurate contact information. If a winner cannot be contacted or is disqualified for any reason, ActiveState reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or not to award that winner’s prize, in its sole discretion. Winners will be notified by email and/or phone within 30 days of contest closing. A list of winners will be published on ActiveState social media channels within 45 days of contest closing.

Eligibility and Limitations. Participants and winner(s) must be residents of the United States or Canada. Limit of one entry per person. Only one (1) prize per household for the contest. In the case of email contests, limit of 1 entrant per email sent/received. There is no limitation on age. A parent or guardian of any participant who is a minor must sign a release on behalf of the minor to be eligible to receive a prize, but ActiveState reserves the right to refuse to award a prize to or on behalf of any minor. Employees of ActiveState, the contest’s participating sponsors and their advertising agencies, and members of the immediate family of any such persons are not eligible to participate and win. The term “immediate family” includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandparents, and grandchildren, whether as “in-laws,” or by current or past marriage(s), remarriage(s), adoption, co-habitation or other family extension, and any other persons residing at the same household whether or not related.
Canadian Residents. Residents of Canada will be required to answer a skill-testing question upon notification of selection. The question must be answered correctly to receive the specified draw prize.
Entries. Only entries submitted at the website designated by ActiveState with forms provided by ActiveState may be used to enter the contest. A winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries received. All survey questions must be answered or entry may be considered ineligible. Entries must be received between the dates of February 28 and March 31, 2019 to be eligible.
Tax. Any valuation of the prize(s) stated above is based on available information provided to ActiveState, and the value of any prize awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. Each winner is solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes related to the prize(s) and paying any expenses associated with any prize which is not specifically provided for in the official rules. Each winner must provide ActiveState with valid identification and a valid taxpayer identification number or social security number before any prize will be awarded.
Publicity; Use of Personal Information. By participating, where allowed by law, all participants and winner(s) grant ActiveState exclusive permission to use their names, characters, photographs, voices, videotape, and likenesses in connection with promotion of this and other contests and waive any claims to royalty, right, or remuneration for such use. By participating in the contest, where allowed by law, participants agree that ActiveState may disclose personal information obtained from participants in the contest to third parties and use such information for marketing and other purposes.
Disqualification; Fraud. Failure to comply with any published contest rules is grounds for immediate disqualification from the contest. ActiveState reserves the right to disqualify any entry not conforming to the rules of the promotion at any time. ActiveState and its contest and promotional partners assume no responsibility for entry fraud committed by any entrant. In the event it is determined that an ineligible entrant wins a prize, ActiveState reserves all rights to the ownership and return of the prize and all costs associated with remedying any prize award to an ineligible entry or entrant.
Misinformation. ActiveState is not responsible for undeliverable, lost, delayed, misdirected or misaddressed email or any other issues regarding the electronic delivery of the contest form. This includes, but is not limited to, the speed at which your email service routes email through the internet. The sole determiner of eligibility for the final drawing will be the time the email or entry form is received at our offices.
Release. By participating in the contest, each participant and winner waives any and all claims of liability against ActiveState, its employees and agents, the contest’s sponsors and their respective employees and agents, for any personal injury or loss which may occur from the conduct of, or participation in, the contest, or from the use of any prize. In order to receive a prize, participants must sign an official waiver form provided by ActiveState.
Conduct and Decisions. By participating in the contest, participants agree to be bound by the decisions of Company personnel. Persons who violate any rule, gain unfair advantage in participating in the contest, or obtain winner status using fraudulent means will be disqualified. Unsportsmanlike, disruptive, annoying, harassing or threatening behavior is prohibited. ActiveState will interpret these rules and resolve any disputes, conflicting claims or ambiguities concerning the rules or the contest and ActiveState’s decisions concerning such disputes shall be final. If the conduct or outcome of the contest is affected by human error, any mechanical malfunctions or failures of any kind, intentional interference or any event beyond the control of ActiveState, ActiveState reserves the right to terminate this contest, or make such other decisions regarding the outcome as ActiveState deems appropriate. All decisions will be made by ActiveState and are final. ActiveState may waive any of these rules in its sole discretion. Any attempt by an entrant or any other individual to deliberately circumvent, disrupt, damage or undermine the legitimate operation of this contest is a violation of criminal and civil laws. Should such an attempt be made, ActiveState reserve the right to seek civil and/or criminal prosecution and/or damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Miscellaneous. Void where prohibited. Odds of winning depend upon the number of participants. Each winner must submit proof of eligibility and sign ActiveState’s release form to claim the prize. ActiveState may substitute prizes, amend the rules or discontinue the contest at any time as announced. ActiveState disclaims any responsibility to notify participants of any aspect related to the conduct of the contest. All entries become the property of ActiveState and will not be returned.
