Points are allocated based on interactions on Fanoptic (a list of point values can be found on “How do I earn points”). All Fanoptic Members partake in a contest and the points awarded determine the yearly winner. Fanoptic offers no Contest Benefits at this time, the point system is for the pure enjoyment of competition among friends. Each year the top point receiver will be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but shall receive no Contest Benefits for this achievement. There is no cost associated with the contest and in the event that Fanoptic chooses to grant Contest Benefits for participation the rules below will apply.
Contest Rules. Accounts, memberships in the Contest, and promotions, benefits, awards, and rewards provided thereunder (and "Contest Benefits") are offered at the discretion of Fanoptic and its affiliates, and Fanoptic has the right to terminate your Account, the Contest, and any Contest Benefits, and to change any terms, conditions of participation, rules, regulations, policies, and procedures that Fanoptic adopts to govern the Contest or Contest Benefits (any " Contest Rules"), in whole or in part, at any time, without notice, even though such changes may affect the value of Contest Benefits or Contest points obtained through use of the services (or "Contest Points") already accumulated. You are responsible for remaining knowledgeable as to the Contest Rules which are published on the Site. Fanoptic may, among other things, withdraw, limit, modify, or cancel any Contest Benefits, and increase the Contest Points required for any Contest Benefits. In accumulating Contest Points, you may not rely upon the continued availability of a Contest Benefit and you may not be able to obtain all offered Contest Benefits.
Compliance with Contest Rules. Participation in the Program is subject to any Contest Rules that Fanoptic may, at its sole discretion, adopt from time to time. Fanoptic has the sole right to interpret and apply the Contest Rules. Any failure to follow Contest Rules, abuse of the Contest, or misrepresentation of any information furnished to Fanoptic or Fanoptic Partners by you or anyone acting on your behalf may result in the termination of your Account and the cancellation of accrued Contest Points, Contest Benefits, or both.
Contest Points and Contest Benefits. The Contest is generally structured to permit you to earn Contest Points for Contest Benefits. The accumulation of Contest Points is subject to the specific Contest Rules enacted by Fanoptic. You are responsible for reading the materials made available to you regarding the Contest, Contest Rules, and Contest Points in order to understand your rights and responsibilities under the Contest. Only Members are eligible to accrue Contest Points in the Contest by availing themselves of the means of accrual recognized under the Contest. A member may not accrue Contest Points for the utilization of the Services by any other person, animal, object, or entity. Contest Points can only be accrued through methods of accrual offered after your creation of an Account. If Fanoptic improperly denies you an accrual of Contest Points or the Contest Benefit, Fanoptic's sole liability will be limited to the equivalent of those Contest Points or that Contest Benefit if the most Contest Points were achieved. Fanoptic reserves the right to make Contest Benefits and promotional offers selectively available to certain Members, at any time, based upon geographic locations, Program participation, or other factors determined at Fanoptic's sole discretion. You are responsible for ensuring that your Contest Points are properly credited. Contest Points accrued in your Account will be maintained for the duration of the Contest Cycle in which those Contest Points were awarded. The accumulation of Contest Points does not entitle you to any vested rights with respect to Contest Benefits or the Contest.
Contest Benefit Redemption. The Contest Benefit will be awarded to one Member who accumulates the most Contest Points in the Contest Cycle. Contest Benefits may be subject to tariffs, taxes, or other required fees. If so, you will be notified of such required fees at the time of redemption and you will be responsible for paying any such required fees.
Contest Cycle. The Contest Cycle will begin on May 15 of the calendar year and end on May 14 of the following calendar year.
Audit Rights. Fanoptic reserves the rights to audit any and all Accounts at any time and without notice for compliance with the Contest Rules. In the event such an audit reveals discrepancies or possible violations, the processing of Contest Benefit redemption requests may be delayed pending completion of the audit.
Prohibition on Transfer of Contest Points and Contest Benefits. No Contest Points or Contest Benefits earned or granted under the Contest may be transferred or assigned except as expressly permitted by Fanoptic in writing. Accrued Contest Points do not constitute property of the member. Neither accrued Contest Points nor accrued Contest Benefits are transferable (i) upon death, (ii) as part of a domestic relations matter, or (iii) otherwise by operation of law. The sale or barter of any Contest Points or Contest Benefits, other than as authorized by Fanoptic in writing, is expressly prohibited. Any Contest Points or Contest Benefits that are transferred, assigned, or sold in violation of the Contest Rules may be confiscated or cancelled. The use of Contest Points or Contest Benefits that have been acquired by purchase, barter, or other conduct in violation of the Contest Rules may result in Account termination and cancellation of accrued Contest Points and Contest Benefits.Contest Partners. Some Contest Benefits may be provided by sponsors and promotion partners of Fanoptic. These partners are independent entities and Fanoptic is not responsible for the nature or quality of products or services provided by those partners. Fanoptic shall have no liability for withdrawal from the Contest by such partners or for Contest Benefit changes or cancellations caused by such partner withdrawals, or discontinued service by partners.
