Automated and inauthentic entries are prohibited, and any use of automated devices will cause disqualification. Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual (and all of his or her entries) who tampers with the entry process. The following will be deemed to be tampering with the entry process and will result in disqualification:
Using a friend’s Tunespeak account to earn your own entries. If your friend is trying to help you earn entries and is on the same Internet connection as you, we require your friend to sign into Tunespeak. We do this to make sure your friend is in fact real and sitting next to you. If your friend is sitting next to you and trying to help you win, just have them log into Tunespeak and you’ll be good!
Using inauthentic Facebook accounts to inflate your own entries. We have an automated system in place to verify the authenticity of each Facebook account used to create a Tunespeak account. An authentic Facebook account is one displaying a history of activity in the main user profile categories. Facebook accounts that are idle or display minimal activity could result in the associated Tunespeak account being marked as inauthentic. You will not earn entries (and you may be suspended) on Tunespeak if you use an inauthentic Facebook account in an attempt to earn entries for yourself. Again, this is an example of inauthentic fan behavior and not allowed as stated in our Terms Of Service.
“Getting Contest Votes” Sites: You will not earn entries (and you may be suspended) if you or your friends post your shared links to any sites dedicated to getting contest votes. These sites do not promote authentic fan behavior and therefore, we don’t condone the use of them. You can win without them!
“Buying Or Trading Services” Sites: You will not earn entries (and you may be suspended) if you or your friends post your shared links to any sites dedicated to buying or trading services for entries. These sites do not promote authentic fan behavior and therefore, we don’t condone the use of them. Again, you can win without them!
“Getting Contest Votes” Forums or Pages: Sponsor monitors popular forums/pages that it has identified and deemed inauthentic. If you know of a forum/page that is dedicated to getting contest votes, please alert us at email@example.com and we will do our best to monitor it for inauthentic Tunespeak activity. If you feel that a fellow Tunespeaker is tampering with the entry processes, please alert us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the appropriate details at least 24 hours before the end of the Tunespeak sweepstakes/contest/raffle in which he/she is participating and we will do our best to look into the authenticity of his/her activity. Tunespeak does not directly address inquiries regarding suspected inauthentic behavior within 24 hours from the close of a sweepstakes/contest/raffle, as well as any requests after the close of a sweepstakes/contest/raffle.
Any other attempted form of entry is void. Online entries must be received and recorded by the Sponsor’s computer during the Sweepstakes Period. No responsibility is assumed by Sponsor for lost, late, illegible, incomplete, stolen, postage-due, mutilated, non-delivered or misdirected entries or mail.
