9. Winner(s) List: Winner List requests
will only be accepted after the end the Promotion Period (listed above) and no
later than May 1, 2020. If you send an e-mail
to email@example.com on or before May
1st 2020 we will provide you with a
list of confirmed winners.
 Cash may be the easiest prize to deliver but it is not lawful as a prize in all countries. For example, Brazil, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, and Turkey prohibit or severely restrict cash as a prize. A gift card to one particular store or site may be permissible, but a card that can be used like cash would not be allowed. Also, note that some jurisdictions, such as New Zealand and the United States, restrict the use of certain types of goods as prizes. Video games or merchandise related to video games are not likely to be problems as long as age restrictions are observed based on ratings. In some jurisdictions, such as China, travel prizes may be difficult to administer due to restrictions on travel. Also, in some jurisdictions, such as China, there are limits on the prize value for individual prizes.
