User shall not share, post, or disseminate in any way any material or information that violates or infringes upon the rights of others, or any material that is unlawful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, defamatory, abusive, threatening, racist, sexist, obscene, profane, or any material that encourages criminal or unlawful conduct, gives rise to civil liability, violates any law, or that, without Royal Draw's express prior written approval, constitutes or contains advertising for or solicitation of products or services.

Points may be earned for subscribing, entering Draws, downloading coupons, referrals, reading emails, liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, voting in the Draw Picker, taking surveys, completing Offers, and reading the daily email as HTML with downloaded pictures. These points are accumulated in the User's account, and can be redeemed for additional draw entries in active draws, or for prizes from our Points Store to be shipped to an address within Canada or the United States (50 states and Washington DC only). You do not need to set a password for your account to earn points for subscribing, entering Draws, downloading coupons or referring others, however, you do need to set a password for your account to earn points for voting in the Draw Picker, taking surveys and completing Offers. Should a User's account be deleted from our database for any reason, all points associated with that account will also be deleted.

  7. Draw terms.

    All Draws are being hosted by Royal Draw. Some draws are paid promotional campaigns for the brand shown, and some are sponsored by Royal Draw. By entering a Draw, the User agrees to accept the prize being offered if they are selected as the winner in accordance with the terms and conditions laid out below.

    In order to enter a Draw, User must have an account with Royal Draw. A registered account is required in order for us to register your entry with your email address and name, to facilitate Royal Points rewards, and to grant Users permission to view their past Draw entries. For additional information on our personal information anthology, please read our Privacy Policy.

    Any Draw entered on the Royal Draw website is for the prize shown on the Draw page only, and the winner is determined by Royal Draw's server computer, and only Royal Draw's server computer. Where Royal Draw is the sponsor of the prize, Royal Draw is also the distributor of the prize. The provision of the prize for a paid promotional campaign, whether a product, service, gift certificate, store credit, or another prize, is the sole responsibility of the sponsoring Merchant.

    All Draws are subject to the terms and conditions set forth by Royal Draw in the Draw Rules and Regulations and/or the participating Merchant(s). Where the sponsor and issuer of a prize is the Merchant, any and all claims and information exchanged relating to the prize issuance are the full and sole liability and responsibility of the Merchant, and not of Royal Draw.

    To claim a prize, winners must respond to the winner's email within 48 hours or they will be forfeited. Winners will be asked to provide their full name, mailing address, phone number, and their picture for the Winners Wall. When a Draw is featured to just Canada, only entrants residing in Canada may win and be eligible for the prize (excludes residents of Quebec when the draw prize value is over $100), and when a Draw is featured to just the United States, only entrants residing in the United States (50 states and Washington DC only) may win and be eligible for the prize. When a Draw is featured to both Canada and the United States, anyone from either country except for the exclusions noted may enter and win, and are eligible for the prize. All winners must supply a valid mailing address for the country to which the draw was featured.

    In using this Site you waive, and hold Consumer Smart Media Inc., its employees, directors, agents, and affiliates completely unaccountable for any and all claims, injuries, illnesses, deaths, damages, loss of property, costs, or unclaimed property disputes resulting from prizes, and/or any all other liabilities related to any and all actions or inactions of any Merchant in connection with honouring a prize claim of a Royal Draw winner.

    A winner is chosen at random for every Draw by a computerized system, and as such it may occur that the same person is selected as a winner for multiple Draws whether simultaneously or over a period of time. Royal Draw will honour every one of these wins provided the entry is in accordance with these Terms of Use.

    All prize claims are redeemable in their entirety subject to the goods and/or services offered in the Draw by the respective and specific sponsor(s).

    Where the sponsor and issuer of a prize is the Merchant, the Merchant may allow you to claim a different prize or to exchange a prize for the cash value of the prize, however, they are under no obligation to do so, and Royal Draw is not responsible for overseeing or facilitating any such negotiations.

  8. Prize claim terms.

    All prizes are limited to the product, service or other prize specified on the Draw page, and cannot be exchanged for the prize of an unrelated Draw, unless otherwise stated or arranged between the winner and Royal Draw.

    Neither Royal Draw nor a sponsoring Merchant is responsible for lost or deleted prize-claim emails, if applicable to claiming a prize, or for the loss or theft of prizes once awarded.

    Reproduction, re-sale, or trade of a winning entry claim is prohibited unless it complies to all applicable laws.

    Unless required by law the issuance of credit instead of a prize is at the sole discretion of the sponsoring Merchant.

    Any attempt at claiming a prize not in compliance with these terms and conditions will render void the winning claim.

  9. Printable coupons, coupon codes, and store promotions.

    The Royal Draw Site features printable coupons, coupon codes, and online or in-store promotional announcements on the Royal Coupon site obtained from public online sources. We make every effort to provide and feature only accurate offers, however, as a publisher site we have no control over the brand offers, including premature expiration, accepted format (printable, accepted on mobile device, etc.), or whether or not the merchant will accept the coupon. It is recommended that you print coupons in colour to improve your chances of redemption, as some merchants only accept internet coupons printed in colour. To find out whether or not a merchant accepts internet coupons in black and white, please contact the merchant directly.

  10. Fraudulence.

    Fraudulent User account activity on this site will be flagged. Users may not redeem points earned by fraudulent means for prizes from our Points Store, and may be disqualified from winning our draws if they redeemed points or Earned Entries earned by fraudulent means for additional entries in the draw won. Fraudulent account activity includes, but is not limited to, creating multiple User accounts to enter and win draws, and referring our site to other email addresses under the User's own ownership and control. Royal Draw reserves the right to restrict or terminate any User account we determine in our sole discretion to be fraudulent, and reserves the right to void any and all prize claims of any kind from fraudulent Users.

  11. Copyrighted, trademarked, or other proprietary material.

    The terms of this Copyrighted, trademarked, or other proprietary material section (Section 6) apply equally to Users and Royal Draw, its subsidiaries, affiliates, Merchants and its third-party content providers and licensors.
