The Contest is a skill-based competition open to legal residents of the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico) who have a Neeva Account as provided in the Terms, as of the date of entry, and who have an active e-mail account and Internet access as of the beginning of the Contest Period. You must also have enrolled in the Referral Program. The Referral Program and Contest are only available for US-based customers. To participate in the Referral Program and this Contest, you are prohibited from attempting to or maintaining multiple Neeva Accounts, or otherwise enrolling in the Referral Program using multiple Neeva Accounts.  You must also comply with all up-to-date “SPAM” laws. For example, emails must be created and distributed in a personal manner and bulk email distribution is strongly discouraged. Any distribution of your referral link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or "spam" under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of your Neeva Account and exclusion from the Referral Program and Contest.

Eligible participants are referred to as either “entrants” or “you” in these Official Rules. Employees, contractors and consultants of Neeva, their family members and entrants living in the same households are NOT eligible to participate in the contest.

Entry deadline is August 24, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT. You may enter the Contest as follows:

  1. Log into your Neeva account.
  2. You can enter the Contest here [https://neeva.com/settings/referrals] (“Contest Site”) where you can sign up for the Contest;
  3. You have to agree to the Official Rules of the Contest which includes having your Contest score alongside your name appear in the Contest’s leaderboard; and
  4. Make Qualifying Referrals (as provided in Section 4 below).

Your “Referral Submission” is the cumulative score of all Referrals (as defined in Section 4) during the Contest Period.

Limitation on Entry: Sponsor will accept only one (1) Referral Submission per entrant to be scored on the leaderboard. While there is no limit on the number of Referrals during the Contest Period, you may only use one (1) Contest registration per entrant/email address for the duration of the Contest Period. The use of a script, macro, or any other device to automate or subvert the Contest registration or Contest entry process is prohibited, and all such registrations and entries will be void. Participating in the Contest using cheats, automated software (e.g., bots), or similar methods of gameplay is strictly prohibited.  Sponsor reserves the right to permanently disqualify any entrant it believes has intentionally violated these Official Rules.

4. Contest Rules.

General. Except as may be otherwise announced in the Official Rules, the Contest will commence on August 10, 2021. The Contest will solicit Referral Submissions during the Contest Period. Your cumulative Referral Submissions will determine your place on the respective leaderboards. The Contest will track your submitted Referral Submissions and you will be able to see your leaderboard status during the Contest Period.

Referral Submissions. Your score will be based on the number of “Referrals” you make through the Contest that make up the total Referral Submission. Each Referral must meet the following conditions:

  • Is a “Qualified Referral” as provided in the Referral Terms;
  • Not previously had a Neeva Account prior to receiving a “Qualified Referral;”
  • Must meet the Minimum Referral Amount (as defined below); and
  • Is a US-based customer;

Each Referral will be counted towards your overall Referral Submission during the Contest Period as provided in Section 5.

No automatically generated Referrals will be accepted. No mechanically reproduced Referral Submissions are allowed and any use of robotic, automatic, programmed or the like entry methods will void all such entries by such methods.

Scores. Participants will accrue points for Referrals. Sponsor will score Referral Submissions and post them on the leaderboard every 5-10 minutes. Sponsor will make a best effort to correct and update Contest scores based on errors or irregularities in the tabulation, transmission, or publication of Referral Submission when they are discovered. The decisions of Sponsor are final and binding with respect to Contest scoring and in all other Contest matters.

5. Determination of the Winner.

  • General. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the top three (3) entrants who earn the highest score for a Contest will win a cash prize announced for such Contest. The top 100 entrants and the top 250 entrants are both also eligible for a Prize. For details, please see Section 6. You must submit a minimum number of Referrals to be eligible for a Prize (“Minimum Referral Amount”). Each Prize has a different Minimum Referral Amount, which is provided in Section 6.
  • Leaderboard. All eligible Referral Submissions from this Contest will be listed on a public leaderboard. The entrant whose Referral Submissions earn one of the three highest overall Scores as ranked on the Contest’s leaderboard will each be a winner of the Contest. Without limiting any other terms of these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entrant, in its sole discretion, if Sponsor finds evidence or has cause to suspect such entrant of receiving an unfair advantage over other participants (whether by means of external automated software or otherwise) or otherwise violates the Official Rules, including by making, accessing, or otherwise utilizing multiple Neeva Accounts. Score accrual will be tracked by Sponsor’s internal clocks and systems. The decisions of the Sponsor (including but not limited to any calculation or computation by Sponsor’s systems or the results thereof) will be final. If any ties must be broken to determine the winners, the winner will be the first entrant who obtained the highest Referral Submission for the relevant ranking as determined by Sponsor’s server timestamp in each instance.
