1. HOW TO ENTER
There are several ways of entering this sweepstakes. You must do the first item, and one or more of the following:
Enter your name and e-mail address on the sweepstakes page (Required)
Enter the 'bonus entry' code, that you can find displayed within the Sweepstakes Ninja video review by watching it (Bonus Entry)
Visit an online property of the Sponsor, and answer a bonus question based on content (Bonus Entry)
Use a special link that is created for your initial entry, and ask people to click it and visit the Sweepstakes Ninja website. Each unique click (unique meaning unique IP address) will count as an entry. (Bonus Entry)
Acceptable means of getting people to click on your link include, but are not limited, to the following:
Post a link (or several) in your facebook account, and tell people to click the link, and visit the Sweepstakes Ninja site and try out the software
Tweet it, and tell people to click on the link, and visit the Sweepstakes Ninja site and try out the software
Post a link on your webpage, blog, and so forth, and ask people to click on the link and visit the Sweepstakes Ninja site and try out the software
Link/Vote exchanges - Providing it is a real person clicking on the link and not machine automated, link exchanges and vote exchanges are acceptable
Write a blog posting talking about the software, and ask people to click the link
Include the link in your forum signature
Asking people to click on it in an online newsletter that you run or have access to
All 'valid' clicks will be subject to verification. Any and all potential winning entries will be subject to having the clicks verified.
Unacceptable clicks include, but are not limited, to the following:
Clicks generated through proxy servers. For example, you can't simply click on the link yourself through multiple proxies from different IP Addresses to artificially increase your count. This can be detected, and will be verified.
Junk traffic, i.e., machine automated/scripts/macros that visit a site to artificially inflate traffic results. This can easily be detected, and will be verified. This also includes junk traffic from some 'traffic exchanges' where the sole purpose is to inflate visitor counts.
Spam traffic, i.e., using e-mail safelists, non opt-in e-mailing, any e-mail whereby the user does not opt-in, etc. This can easily be detected, and will be verified.
In general, if a link is not visited or clicked on by a real person, and the SweepstakesNinja.com site not visited by a real person, then the click will not be valid. If there are a significant number of invalid links, and it appears, at the sole discretion of Sweepstakes Ninja, that results have been artificially inflated to increase the chances of winning, then those entries will be disqualified.
It is acceptable to have multiple clicks from the same IP address, however only the first click from a specific/unique IP address will count as an entry. This means, for example, that if you click on the link from the same IP address several times, only the first click will count as an entry. This is determined automatically by our system. It also means, for example, for example, that if you had 10 friends, and all 10 friends each had a unique IP address, and each clicked on each others links, only the first 10 unique clicks would count as an entry. Each subsequent entry would not count, since it would be a duplicate IP address entry. This is to help ensure that everyone is given a fair chance at winning the prize.
If you are chosen as a potential winner, the source and types of clicks will be analyzed. If a significant portion (subject to our interpretation of 'significant', which depends on the number of entries), of them appear to be generated by any of the above means, or in otherwords appear to be 'junk' or 'spam' clicks, the entries will be disqualified and a new potential winner will be selected. This process will continue until a legitimate winner is found.
All online sweepstakes entries become the property of Sweepstakes Ninja, and promotional sponsors of the sweepstakes. Entries will not be returned and may be used by Sweepstakes Ninja, and sweepstakes merchandise sponsors for any purpose and in any media in perpetuity.
