These Services are offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older reside in the United States or any of its territories. By using these Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use the Services.
What We Do – The Services
The Services serve as an engagement hub between organizations (“Vendors”) and their customers, members, and/or employees (“VIPs”).
We provide a platform allowing Vendors to create challenges for VIPs to complete. When creating a challenge, Vendors can include which VIPs the challenge is displayed to, start and expiration dates, points it is worth, and more.
VIPs see available challenges and can choose to complete a challenge. Authorized users of a Vendor company determine when a challenge has been completed by a VIP. Points are then awarded to the VIP, if points were included in the challenge. VIP Crowd charges a fee to the Vendor for any points earned by VIPs for completing Vendor challenges. VIPs can then redeem points for various rewards such as gift cards.
Vendors and VIPs can also communicate with each other on discussion boards within the platform.
We also provide a Loneliest Number Contest as outlined in the next section.
Loneliest Number Contest
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. The Loneliest Number game (“Contest”) is sponsored by VIP Crowd Live, Inc. (“Sponsor”).
Eligibility. The Contest is open to valid VIP Crowd Account holders who are at least 17 years old as of the date of entry. Employees of Sponsor and any other entity involved in the development or execution of the Contest are not eligible to participate in the Contest. THE CONTEST IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW OR WHERE BONDING, REGISTRATION, OR OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET, OR WHERE METHODS OF ENTRY SET FORTH BELOW WOULD BE DEEMED CONSIDERATION. ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS APPLY.
Entry. Contests typically occur each week and will be announced through the Services from time to time.
How to Enter. No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in the Contest. Enter by completing each of the following steps:
- Login to the Services. If you do not already have an Account, sign up for a VIP Crowd Account with the Account creation options made available at vipcrowd.com.
- Complete challenges posted by Vendors or VIP Crowd. Once the challenge is approved by the Vendor, VIPs will receive picks for the Contest.
- Enter a number that you believe nobody else will select, as further described in the Services.
- We award a prize to the person who guesses the lowest whole number that nobody else guesses.
Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any Contest entries that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated means.
Prizes. The winner(s) of each Contest will receive a prize, determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion (the “Prize”). Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Contest. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any prizes other than the Prize specified in these rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to the winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize is unable to be fulfilled to the winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize at all. The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. To receive a complete list of winners or a copy of the Official Rules, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to VIP Crowd, Inc. PO Box 930143, Verona, WI 53593.
The Contest will be conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all matters relating to this Contest. The winner will be notified in the VIP Crowd or by email; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate method of notification. The winner must reply to the email within 120 days after the date of notification of such eligible Prize. A Contest winner’s failure to respond within the specified 120 days will be considered such Contest winner’s forfeiture of the Prize and Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all.
