Contest Rules

To provide fair and equal chance of winning to all GlobeSt.com readers, the following are the official rules for all GlobeSt.com contests.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE CHANCES OF WINNING.

Open to US residents only. All winners must be 18 years of age or older, unless otherwise stated and/or posted.

1. Entering Contests and Choosing and Contacting Winners
Unless otherwise specified in an individual contest post, no person may enter any contest more than once by registering with multiple email addresses. Winner(s) will be chosen at random from our membership database. To be eligible for prizes you must be a registered member to GlobeSt.com and its email Alert service. Winner(s) of all contests will be contacted at the email address used to register. Claiming of prizes requires an email response from the winning member —containing a quote on how GlobeSt.com and its AM Alerts help you build your business along with a 200x200 pixel business photo of winning member—to GlobeSt.com within 15 days of being notified. Failure to respond shall mean that the winner forfeits the prize. GlobeSt.com is not required to award elsewhere any prizes forfeited by the chosen winner(s).

2. Submission of photo, text or other content for Contests
We would like to announce our winners in a future promotion with a quote and 200x200 pixel picture of winning member. We will request that this information is supplied before prize is shipped.
