CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
By entering a Contest, entrants agree to be bound by these Rules and the decisions of DIYSE, which shall be final and binding in all respects. The Company, at its sole discretion, may disqualify any entrant from a Contest, refuse to award benefits or prizes, if the entrant engages in conduct or otherwise utilizes any information the Company deems to be improper, unfair or otherwise adverse to the operation of the Contest or is in any way detrimental to other entrants. These Terms prohibit entering a Contest if the entrant is:
Except as otherwise stated in the Eligibility section above, an Employee of the Company or an immediate family member of such employee;
Accessing or has had access to any material non-public information that provides the entrant an advantage in such a Contest;
Breaches any rules or policies of the entrant's employer or any other professional body of which the entrant is a member, including any rule or policy regarding participation in Contests or accepting prize money;
Any person prohibited from participating pursuant to court order;
In addition, conduct that would be deemed improper also includes, but is not limited to:

Tampering with the administration of a Contest or trying to in any way tamper with the computer programs or any security measure associated with a Contest;
Obtaining other entrants’ information and spamming other entrants; or
Abusing the Website in any way.
Users further acknowledge that the forfeiture and/or return of any prize shall in no way prevent DIYSE from pursuing criminal or civil proceedings in connection with such conduct.
By entering into a Contest or accepting any prize, entrants, including but not limited to the winner(s), agree to indemnify, release and to hold harmless DIYSE, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and agents, as well as the officers, directors, employees, shareholders and representatives of any of the foregoing entities (collectively, the "Released Parties"), from any and all liability, claims or actions of any kind whatsoever, including but not limited to injuries, damages, or losses to persons and property which may be sustained in connection with participation in the Contest, the receipt, ownership, use or misuse of any prize or while preparing for, participating in and/or travelling to or from any prize related activity, as well as any claims based on publicity rights, defamation, or invasion of privacy. DIYSE may, in its sole and absolute discretion, require an Authorized Account Holder to execute a separate release of claims similar to the one listed above in this Paragraph as a condition of being awarded any prize or receiving any payout.
DIYSE is not responsible for: any incorrect, invalid or inaccurate entry information; human errors; postal delays/postage due mail; technical malfunctions; failures, including public utility or telephone outages; omissions, interruptions, deletions or defects of any telephone system or network, computer online systems, data, computer equipment, servers, providers, or software (including, but not limited to software and operating systems that do not permit an entrant to participate in a Contest), including without limitation any injury or damage to any entrant's or any other person's computer or video equipment relating to or resulting from participation in a Contest; inability to access the Website, or any web pages that are part of or related to the Website; theft, tampering, destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, entries and/or images of any kind; data that is processed late or incorrectly or is incomplete or lost due to telephone, postal issues, computer or electronic malfunction or traffic congestion on telephone lines or transmission systems, or the Internet, or any service provider's facilities, or any phone site or website or for any other reason whatsoever; typographical, printing or other errors, or any combination thereof.
ANY ATTEMPT BY AN ENTRANT OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE THE WEBSITE OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF ANY CONTEST IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND/OR CIVIL LAWS AND SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, DIYSE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES AND OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
All entries become the property of DIYSE and will not be acknowledged or returned.
To be eligible to enter any contest or receive any prize, the Authorized Account Holder may be required to provide DIYSE with additional documentation and/or information to verify the identity of the Authorized Account Holder. In the event of a dispute as to the identity or eligibility of an Authorized Account Holder, DIYSE will, in its sole and absolute discretion, utilize certain information collected by DIYSE to assist in verifying the identity and/or eligibility of such Authorized Account Holder.
DIYSE reserves the right to move entrants from the Contests they have entered to substantially similar Contests in certain situations determined by DIYSE in its sole discretion.
CONTEST PRIZES AND PROMOTIONS
Guaranteed prizes are offered in connection with some of the Contests offered by the Website. Each Contest or promotion is governed by its own set of official rules. We encourage you to read such Contest and promotions Rules before participating.
OTHER LEGAL RESTRICTIONS
CONTEST OF SKILL
Contests offered on the Website are contests of skill. Winners are determined by the objective criteria described in the documentation associated with the Contest. From all entries received for each Contest, winners are determined by the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of the stock market to accumulate the highest returns according to the corresponding scoring rules. The Website and Contests may not be used for any form of illicit gambling.
CONTEST STATISTICS AND LIVE SCORING
To the extent that we offer 'live' data during contests, all 'live' statistics and other information provided through the DIYSE Website and related information sources are unofficial. Live data and their respective components are offered for informational and/or entertainment purposes only and are not used to determine the results of our Contests. While DIYSE and the third parties used to provide the DIYSE Services use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither DIYSE nor its third-party providers warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the DIYSE Website and related information sources. DIYSE and its third-party providers shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the DIYSE Website and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.
Contest results and prize calculations are based on the final statistics and scoring results at the completion of each individual Contest. Once Contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded.
If an event occurs during the course of a contest, such as a stock being de-listed, a trading halt, or a trading suspension of a stock, the following will occur:
1) if there is no opening price, the participant’s contest entry will be invalidated and will not be part of the contest
2) if there is no closing price for the final day of the contest, the closing price defaults back to the most recent competitively generated price (for multi-day contests)
At the conclusion of each Contest, prizes will be awarded by 12:00 NOON EST on the following day except in circumstances where technical failure, inability of the Company to verify your compliance with these Terms, or other reasons prevent such timely payout. Contest prizes are listed in our prize table list. Prizes won are added to the winning participant’s account balance. In the event of a tie, prizes are divided evenly amongst the participants that have tied.
Contest prize payouts will be published with the creation of each new contest. DIYSE reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend the contests (or any portion thereof) should virus, bugs, unauthorized human intervention, or other causes corrupt administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper operation of the contest (or any portion thereof) warrant doing so. Notification of such changes may be provided by DIYSE to its customers but will not be required.
PAYMENT AND WITHDRAWAL OF PRIZES
Winners are posted on the Website.
Before making any payment, DIYSE may require that an entrant complete and execute an affidavit of eligibility in which, among other things, the entrant is required to represent and warrant that the entrant is eligible to participate in a Contest, and is otherwise in compliance with this Agreement. If DIYSE requests that an entrant completes and executes such an affidavit and the entrant fails to do so within seven (7) days, or DIYSE otherwise determines that the entrant does not meet the eligibility requirements or is not in compliance with these Terms, DIYSE reserves the right to terminate the entrant's account and withhold the awarding of any prizes from active contests. In such a situation, DIYSE may pay out any withheld prizes to the other entrants in the active contest in a manner consistent with the Rules of the Contest.
Entrants may withdraw their cash prize awards as well as cash deposits by using the "Withdrawal" option on the Website. Entrants may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and forms of identification including but not limited to a Driver's License, Proof of Residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by DIYSE in order to complete the withdrawal of prizes. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prizes.
For the purposes of this provision, a request for withdrawal will be considered honored if it is processed by DIYSE but delayed by a payment processor, credit card issuer, or by the custodian of a financial account.
All taxes associated with the receipt of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of Contests is challenged by any legal authority, DIYSE reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted, except that DIYSE reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal value or greater if the advertised prize is unavailable. All prizes are awarded "as is" and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).
Any withdrawal requests, after approved by DIYSE, will be credited back to the same credit card or method of payment used to deposit funds on the Website. DIYSE will only release withdrawals to a different credit card or other payment method other than that which was used to make deposit(s) after the aggregate amount of such deposit(s) has already been released back to the credit card(s) or payment method(s) used for the deposit(s).
DIYSE USER RESERVE
Customer deposits and user winnings after contests are finished are held in a separate, segregated bank account (the "Segregated Account") held by DIYSE User Reserve LLC, a legally separate and independent subsidiary of DIYSE, Inc. Withdrawals which will be made from this Segregated Account, and checks issued from the Segregated Account, may bear the names of DIYSE User Reserve LLC. Vendors, users, and creditors shall be aware that the funds in the Segregated Account are the property of DIYSE User Reserve LLC and do not belong to DIYSE Inc., and are not available to creditors of DIYSE Inc., except for users whose funds are held in such account. DIYSE, Inc. and DIYSE User Reserve LLC are prohibited from commingling funds held by DIYSE, Inc. and funds belonging to DIYSE User Reserve LLC held in the Segregated Account.
DIYSE, Inc. will take appropriate steps to prevent unauthorized withdrawals from consumer accounts. Users are subject to an automated Knowledge Base Authentication ("KBA") verification process provided whenever a user attempts to withdraw funds. This process asks a series of at least four multiple choice questions about the person's life, such as known relatives, previous addresses, and to enter their last 4 digits of their Tax ID or Social Security Number. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of a customer, DIYSE, Inc. can and does require its users to produce a copy of their driver's license, credit cards, utility bills or passport for identity verification. If a customer cannot validate their identity and account, DIYSE, Inc. will not release the funds from the account. Once per month, DIYSE, Inc. shall reconcile all liabilities owed to users and the sum of funds or credits in the Segregated Account and credits due to DIYSE, Inc. from credit card processors as of the end date of the immediately preceding month.
Users who believe that funds held by or their accounts with DIYSE Inc. have been misallocated, compromised or otherwise mishandled, may register a complaint with DIYSE, Inc. online by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to 390 Hillside Street, Milton, MA 02186. DIYSE Inc. shall use its best efforts to respond to such complaints within ten (10) days. If DIYSE, Inc. determines that the relief requested in the complaint will not be granted, its response will set forth the specific reasons therefore. If more information is required for DIYSE Inc. to process the complaint, the response will note the form and nature of the necessary additional information needed.
A user can request to withdraw funds from their account at any time. Requests for withdrawal will be honored by the later of five business days or ten business days of submission of any tax reporting paperwork required by law, unless DIYSE, Inc. believes in good faith that the user engaged in either fraudulent conduct or other conduct that would put DIYSE, Inc. in violation of Massachusetts state law. A request for withdrawal will be considered honored if it is processed by DIYSE, Inc. but delayed by a payment processor, credit card issuer, or by the custodian of a financial account. Users can also permanently close their account at any time for any reason through the DIYSE, Inc. customer service department.
