  5. How to Enter: There are two ways to enter: Survey Method and Mail-In Method
    (a) Survey Method. During the Promotion Period, visit the survey link provided via email and follow the links and instructions to complete the Company survey. Limit: 1 Promotion entry for each survey participation. Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than 1 entry by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations or logins, or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that participant may be disqualified from the Promotion. Any use of robotic, repetitive, automatic, programmed or similar entry methods or agents (including, but not limited to, Promotion entry services) will void all entries by that entrant. In the event of a dispute as to any online entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holders.

    (b) Mail-In Method. Print your name, age, complete street/mailing address (with zip code), ten-digit phone number with the subject “VIRGINIA NATURAL GAS Deferred Payment Arrangement Survey Incentive Promotion Entry” on a 3½” x 5” card and mail in the completed card, with sufficient first-class postage affixed, to Ten Peachtree Place, 10th Floor, Atlanta, GA 30309, Attention: VIRGINIA NATURAL GAS Customer Operations Support. Such mail-in entries for the Promotion must be legible, and submitted in original hand-printed form. A mail-in entry pursuant to this paragraph will be deemed valid and eligible for consideration only if such entry is postmarked prior to the end of the Promotion Period and received no later than by the Sponsor three (3) business days following end of the Promotion Period. All entry forms must be filled out completely and truthfully. Failure to complete the entry and provide truthful and pertinent information may result in disqualification from the Promotion. Disqualification is in the sole discretion of Sponsor. There is a limit of one (1) entry per entrant for this method.

  6. Drawings: The selection of the potential winner is final and binding. Four weeks after the end of the Promotion Period, Sponsor will begin to select the names of the potential winners in a random drawing of all eligible entries received during the Promotion Period. The potential winners will be notified by email, mail or phone. By entering the Promotion, the entrant grants permission to be contacted by email or telephone. The odds of winning the/a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Promotion Period.

  7. Requirements of Potential Winners: Potential winners must continue to comply with the Official Rules. Winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. In the event that the/a potential winner cannot be contacted or found within 30 days, forfeits the prize or is disqualified for any reason, if time permits Sponsor will select an alternate potential winner in a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries, up to 3 alternates. If the alternate potential winners are disqualified, the prize will not be awarded. Prizes will be fulfilled approximately 4-5 weeks after the survey link has been sent to the Promotion participants.

  8. Prizes: 2 Grand Prize: A VISA gift card pre-loaded with a minimum of fifty ($50) dollars, subject to its terms and conditions will be awarded to each potential winner.

  10. General Conditions: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Promotion is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud, virus or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Promotion to address the impairment and then resume the Promotion in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) cancel the Promotion and award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Promotion or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Promotion may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

  11. Release and Limitations of Liability: Release and Limitations of Liability: Except where prohibited, by participating in the Promotion, entrants agree to release and hold harmless the Company, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, promotional partners, prize partners, agents and agencies, and the officers, directors and employees of them (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Promotion or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Promotion; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, printers or telephone or network lines; (c) printing errors; (d) errors in the administration of the Promotion or the processing of entries; (e) late, lost, or undeliverable mail; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Promotion or receipt of any prize.

If the Promotion, or any part of it, is discontinued for any reason, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any prize offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth herein to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.

  12. Disputes: Entrant agrees that: (a) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this Promotion or any prizes awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively brought in the Superior or State Courts of Georgia; provided, however, that any such claim or cause of action may be brought in, or removed to, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, to the extent that such court would have jurisdiction over the subject matter of such action; and (b) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering any Promotion, but in no event attorneys' fees.
