Official Rules:

Yahoo! Survey Sweepstakes

THE FOLLOWING PROMOTION AND ITS COMPONENT SWEEPSTAKES ARE INTENDED FOR PLAY IN THE UNITED STATES ONLY AND SHALL ONLY BE CONSTRUED AND EVALUATED ACCORDING TO UNITED STATES LAW. DO NOT ENTER ANY SWEEPSTAKES IN THIS PROMOTION IF YOU ARE NOT LOCATED IN, AND A LEGAL RESIDENT OF, THE UNITED STATES.

NO PURCHASE AND NO ONLINE ENTRY IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE DOES NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.

ENTRY IN ANY SWEEPSTAKES IN THIS PROMOTION CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

  1. Eligibility: You must be a legal resident of the United States or the District of Columbia and at least 18 years or older at the time of entry. Void in overseas U.S. territories, possessions, commonwealths and military installations, and where prohibited by law. Employees and agents of Yahoo! Inc. ("Sponsor" or "Yahoo!") its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotional agencies, any other prize sponsor, and any entity involved in the development, production, implementation, administration or fulfillment of the Promotion (all of the foregoing, together with Yahoo!, collectively referred to as "Promotion Entities"), and the immediate family members and persons living in the same household as such individuals, are not eligible to participate or win.

  2. How To Enter: The Promotion consists of series of individual monthly sweepstakes (each, a "Sweepstakes"). You may enter the Sweepstakes each month beginning Jan 1, 2013 (for the January monthly Sweepstakes) and ending December 31, 2013 (for the December monthly Sweepstakes) (the period from January 1-December 31, 2013 is referred to in these rules as the "Promotion Period") in one of two ways:

    a. Online Entry: To enter online (an "Online Entry"), you must be invited to participate in a qualifying Yahoo! Research Survey (a "Survey"). Complete the Survey, and then follow the link to the Sweepstakes entry page. You will be asked to provide your first and last name, address (no post office boxes), and email address. You may also be asked to answer optional questions; however, they need not be answered in order to be eligible for the Sweepstakes. To be eligible for a given monthly drawing, Online Entries must be received between the first day of the entry period at 12:01 AM CT and the last day of the monthly entry period at 11:59 PM CT. The start and end dates of each entry period are listed in the Monthly Entry Schedule below.

    For purposes of these Official Rules, "receipt" of an Online Entry occurs when Yahoo!'s servers record the entry information upon clicking the "Enter Sweepstakes" button. Any automated computer receipt (such as one confirming delivery of email) does not constitute proof of actual receipt by Yahoo! of an Online Entry for purposes of these Official Rules. In the event of a dispute about the identity of an online entrant, each Online Entry will be declared made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry. "Authorized account holder" is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an email address by an internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization (e.g. business, educational institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted email address. If the winning entry in a particular Sweepstakes is an Online Entry, the potential winner may be required to provide Promotion Entities with proof that he/she is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry.

    b. Mail-In Entry: To enter any Sweepstakes by mail without the survey obligation, send a 3x5 inch hand-addressed index card on which you have hand-printed your first and last name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) to:

    Yahoo! Survey Sweepstakes, P.O. Box 30446, Phoenix, AZ 85046

    All mail-in entries for a particular Sweepstakes must be postmarked during the relevant Entry Period for that Sweepstakes, and received no later than seven calendar days after the close of that Entry Period. Entries received after this deadline will be included in the drawing for the next Sweepstakes in the Promotion, if any remain.

    The following applies to both methods of entry:

    LIMIT ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PER MONTH, REGARDLESS OF MEANS OF ENTRY. Although subsequent attempts to enter may be received, only the first entry received from any person will count; subsequent attempts to enter by the same person will be disqualified. The submission of an entry is solely the responsibility of the entrant. Automated entries (including but not limited to entries submitted using any bot, script, macro, or sweepstakes service), copies, third party entries, facsimiles and/or mechanical reproductions are not permitted and will be disqualified. Only eligible entries actually received by Yahoo! in accordance with the deadlines specified above will be included in the prize drawing. Illegible, unintelligible, incomplete, garbled, or mutilated entries will be disqualified. All entries become the property of Yahoo!, and none will be acknowledged or returned.

  3. Conduct: By entering any Sweepstakes in this Promotion, entrants agree to comply with and be bound by these Official Rules. The Official Rules will be posted at the Sweepstakes website throughout the Promotion. Failure to comply with these Official Rules may result in disqualification from any Sweepstakes or from further participation in this Promotion. Entrants further agree to comply with and be bound by the decisions of the judges, which will be final and binding in all respects. Yahoo! reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be: (a) tampering or attempting to tamper with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion, any Sweepstakes or any Yahoo! website; (b) violating the Official Rules; (c) violating the terms of service, conditions of use and/or general rules or guidelines of any Yahoo! property or service; or (d) acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person. CAUTION: ANY ATTEMPT BY A PARTICIPANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE PROMOTION MAY BE A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, YAHOO! RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

  4. Prize: For each monthly Sweepstakes, one winner will receive US $1,000 in cash, to be paid in one lump sum. (ARV $1,000)

    Prize cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion or offer. Prize may not be transferred or assigned except by Sponsor. Only listed prize will be awarded and no substitutions, cash equivalents or redemptions will be made.Expenses not specifically stated above, together with the reporting and payment of all applicable taxes, fees, and/or surcharges, if any, arising out of, or resulting from, acceptance or use of prize, are the sole responsibility of the winner. Any unclaimed prizes will not be awarded. Restrictions, conditions, and limitations apply. Yahoo! will not replace any lost or stolen prize items. Limit one prize per household/e-mail address in this Promotion.

    Each winner will be selected in a random drawing as per the Monthly Entry Schedule below, from all eligible entries received for that monthly Sweepstakes. Non-winning entries will NOT be retained for subsequent monthly drawings. All drawings will be conducted by Compliance Sweepstakes Services for Incentive Logic, Inc. (the "Judging Organization") whose decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. Odds of winning a Prize will depend upon the number of eligible entries received for that month's entry period.
