The responses to the CSLOA Survey (“Entry Materials”) must be submitted via the online platform provided by Sponsor and may not be submitted in any other format. All Entry Materials must be received by the Entry Deadline. Any submissions received after this date and time will be disqualified. The odds of winning a prize (“Prize”) depend on the number of eligible entries received by the Entry Deadline.

Entry Materials must be developed in good taste, shall not contain content that is obscene or indecent and shall not include profanity, drugs, alcohol, phone numbers, offensive or derogatory statements that may be offensive to individuals of a specific race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or socioeconomic group, or contain other content deemed inappropriate by Sponsor, in its sole discretion. There can only be one entry per person. In the event any Entry Material is deemed inappropriate by Sponsor, that entry will be deemed ineligible. In the event of a dispute regarding Prize claims or entries received from multiple users having the same e-mail account, the authorized subscriber of the e-mail account at the time of submission of the Entry Materials will be deemed to be the participant eligible to participate in the Raffle and such entry must comply with these Official Rules. An authorized account subscriber is the natural person who is assigned the e-mail address by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses. In the event more than one participant submits the same Entry Materials, the participant who was the first to submit the Entry Materials will be deemed the official participant (based on Sponsor’s server’s timestamp) and the participant who submitted the subsequent duplicate Entry Materials will not be eligible to be a winner, unless the participant who was the first entrant to submit the Entry Materials is selected as a winner, but is thereafter deemed by Sponsor to be ineligible under these Official Rules.
