Eligibility. The Sweepstakes is open only to those Diligent Boards™ users whose primary business is in Higher Education, who complete the SurveyMonkey survey page and who are the older of 18 years of age or the legal age of majority in your state of residence at the time of entry. The Sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia and is void where prohibited by law. Our employees, our employees’ immediate family members (spouses, domestic partners, parents, grandparents, siblings, children and grandchildren), and our affiliates, advisors or advertising/promotion agencies (and their immediate family members) are not eligible to enter the Sweepstakes.

How to Enter. You may enter the Sweepstakes beginning at 9:30 a.m. (EST) on March 29th, 2016 and ending at 11:59:59 p.m. (EST) on April 5th, 2016 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). To enter, you must visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LPGZDZW and complete the online entry survey form. Limit one entry per person during the Sweepstakes Period.

Other Promotions. Please note that we may be running similar sweepstakes at the same time as this Sweepstakes. By entering this Sweepstakes, you will not be eligible to receive any prize awarded in any other sweepstakes unless you enter each sweepstakes separately.

Prizes. We will award a total of 1 prize, consisting of a $100 MasterCard Gift Card (“GC”) (total approximate retail value (“ARV”) $100.00). Redemption of the GC will be subject to the standard terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to the MasterCard Gift Card then in effect. Diligent is not responsible if the GC is lost, stolen, destroyed or used without permission. If the GC is lost or stolen, it will not be replaced. Each winner will be responsible for paying all costs and expenses related to the prize that are not specifically mentioned, including, but not limited to, taxes, and any other expenses that might reasonably be incurred by the winner in receiving or using the prize. No substitution of price or transfer/assignment of prize to others or request for the cash equivalent by the winners is permitted.

Prize Drawing. The potential winners will be selected at a random drawing to be held on or about April 19th, 2016. We must receive eligible entries during the Sweepstakes Period for them to be eligible for the drawing. We will notify each potential winner by phone or e-mail within 5 business days following the drawing, and he/she may be required to sign an Eligibility Statement and Release. We will select an alternative potential winner if the potential winner does not claim the prize within 72 hours of notification, or meet the eligibility criteria. The prize will be awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose). Limit one prize per person for a total of one Sweepstakes winner.

Odds of Winning. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.

Additional Terms. We may, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and in our sole discretion, change these rules or cancel the Sweepstakes at any time; or modify, terminate, or suspend the Sweepstakes should viruses, worms, bugs, unauthorized human intervention or other causes beyond our control corrupt or impair the administration, security, fairness or proper play of the Sweepstakes or submission of entries.
