Users Report Conflicting Results
If there is a discrepancy between any of the Contest Results reported between two or more Contest Entrants, We will use commercially reasonable efforts to determine the Verified Winner and award the Prize accordingly. We will use a proprietary process to determine the Verified Winner and Our judgment as to the Verified Winner will be considered the final judgment, therefore, VEX shall not be required to disclose how the Verified Winner is determined. VEX reserves the right to suspend, terminate or otherwise cancel the VEX Account of the Contest Entrant who submitted a report contrary to the Verified Winner as determined by VEX. Your only recourse is to terminate Your VEX Account and cease using the Services.

The Organiser may demand that a participant pay compensation for any damages incurred if any such termination is caused by the conduct of a participant.
4. CONTESTS PRIZES
Contest provided by Contest Organizers may offer, at the sole discretion of the organizer, prizes for the winners. Those prizes may directly be offered by the Organizers or by Prize Sponsor (hereafter referred to as, “Prize Supplier”).
At the end of the Contest Period, the Contest Organizer should contact the selected winners and notify them of the prizes.
VEX, Contest Organizer and Prize Supplier reserve the right to verify all user eligibility prior to declaring a winner and/or allocate the prize. Under no circumstances can statistics displayed during the contest (such as the leaderboard or other online postings) be considered a form of eligibility for a prize.
Forfeiture of the prize
Unless otherwise specified in these Terms and Conditions, the winner must claim their prize within two (2) weeks of notification by the Organiser, otherwise they will forfeit their prize. The claim to the prize likewise lapses if the prize cannot be distributed within two (2) weeks following initial notification of the prize on grounds for which the winner is at fault.
The item presented as the prize in the competition is not necessarily identical to the item won. There may be variations in terms of model, colour, etc. The Prize Supplier reserves the right to select a prize they consider to be of broadly equivalent value or nature.
Non-cash prizes (with the exception of cars and trips) will be sent to the mailing address to be provided by the winner by the Prize Supplier, or a third party commissioned by the Prize Supplier, by means of carrier, parcel service or post. The winner is responsible for any additional transportation costs and customs duties. The assumption of shipping costs notwithstanding, the place of performance remains the Price Sponsor’s registered office. The winner must also provide an alternative address in their immediate vicinity to which the prize can be delivered in their absence. The winner must bear the costs of another attempt at delivery.
In the case of travel prizes, they will be arranged between the winner and the respective Prize Supplier and/or a tour operator commissioned by such Prize Supplier. There is no entitlement to a specific travel date. The claim to a prize lapses if the trip is not taken on the date or during the period indicated in the Contest. The winner is subject to the travel conditions of the tour organiser upon confirmation of the trip. Unless otherwise stated in the competition or expressly agreed, travel to and from the starting point of the trip (airport, train station, etc.) is at the winner’s expense. The same applies to all personal costs incurred during the trip (minibar, telephone, etc.). The value of the trip in the promotional materials is based on the most expensive travel season and is thus subject to change according to seasonality and currency fluctuations depending on when the trip is made available and taken. The winner acknowledges this and agrees that compensation for any difference in value in any form is excluded.
Prize Supplier is furthermore not liable for the consequences of a legitimate change in the form of travel offered or legitimate cancellation by the tour operator. Payout of the value of the trip is not permitted.
The winner can receive an equivalent replacement if it is not possible to distribute the prize or would only be possible under unreasonable circumstances. The winner can also receive an equivalent replacement if the original prize is no longer available as advertised (model change, seasonal goods, etc.). Under no circumstance will cash alternatives for non-cash prizes or prize substitutions be offered.
The right to the prize or prize substitution is not transferable.
All Prizes are provided “AS IS” by the Prize Supplier. Other than as provided in this agreement, Prize Supplier makes no other warranties, express or implied, and hereby disclaims all implied warranties, including any warranty of merchantability and warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. The Organiser shall not be liable for insolvency on the part of a Prize Sponsor or the resulting consequences for conducting the competition.
Prize Supplier who provides a prize may report the value of the prize to federal and/or state taxing authorities.
