A voting participant does not need to be an existing or previous member of Zoosk to vote, but must have an active Facebook account in order to cast a vote for an Entry. By participating in the voting portion of the contest, each voting participant agrees to be bound by these Official Rules.

The voting participant may cast one (1) vote per day during the Voting Period.  All voting must be done by the actual person casting the vote. A person may not vote on behalf of another person. An entrant may encourage other persons to vote for his or her Entry, including by sending emails, text messages and/or by promoting a link to the Entry on social media.

Email and text messages should be sent only to your friends and family members who consent to receive messages from you.

Entrants (and other persons) are expressly prohibited from soliciting or obtaining votes by any fraudulent or inappropriate means, which include, without limitation, offering prizes, payments, reciprocal votes, or other inducements of any kind, or participating in voting boards, voting exchanges, voting swaps, or similar sites or methods, all as determined by Zoosk in its sole discretion. Any attempt to use multiple or different email addresses, identities, logins, or any other methods to vote more than the stated limit (including but not limited to, votes generated by a robotic, programmed, script, macro, other automated means or other source), or in other violation of these Official Rules, will void that voter’s votes and that Entry may be disqualified in Zoosk’s sole discretion. Votes intended to impact the integrity of the voting process as determined by Zoosk in its sole discretion are void.  If the contest includes the use of an internet tool and the internet voting process fails to operate properly or appears to be tampered with or tainted with errors, fraud or unfair practices, Zoosk reserves the right to use another means to determine the winner(s), i.e. eliminating the Voting Component and relying 100% on the Judging Component, as described below. All decisions Zoosk are final.

7.     Selection of Winners.  The object of the Promotion is to most creatively and compellingly convey your heart-warming story about (1) what the first thing that caught your eye about your partner’s Zoosk profile was, (2) when you first realized you really liked or loved your partner, and (3) what your biggest pet peeve about your partner is or what the one thing your partner does that drives you crazy is. Entries received will be judged based on the following criteria: 30% of the score (the “Voting Component”) will be determined by the number of votes received from members of the public and 70% of the score will be determined by judging done by Zoosk or its designees based on the satisfaction of the Entry Requirements, compliance with these Official Rules, composition and overall quality of the video Entry, creativity, originality, and overall impression and alignment with Zoosk values and brand (collectively, the “Judging Component”). In the unlikely event of a tie, Zoosk or its designees in its sole discretion will cast determine the winner based 100-percent (100%) on the judging criteria.

The Entry that is judged to receive the highest score based on combination of the Voting Component and the Judging Component will be deemed the potential Winner, subject to verification.

8.     Notification of Winners.  Becoming a Winner is subject to validation and verification of eligibility and compliance with all of the terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules.

As a condition of accepting the Prize, Sponsor may require the Winner and the Winner’s partner to show proof of identification, an affidavit of eligibility, a publicity release, a liability release, and/or other documents. You must execute and return all documents to Sponsor within two (2) weeks of the date any such documents are sent to you or your Prize may be forfeited (in Sponsor’s sole discretion). If, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, you are found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, or if Sponsor is unable to contact you, and/or you do not respond and/or return required documentation within the applicable time periods, you will forfeit the Prize and Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner based on the criteria set forth in Section 7.

Once the Winner has been confirmed, Zoosk will announce the Winner on Zoosk’s blog and/or on social media platforms such as Facebook.
