Only one entry is allowed per natural person, regardless of how many email address accounts they may have access to.

8. Promotion Rules.  On April 15th, 2016 My Basic Income will select by a random drawing a winner from all eligible entries.  Sponsor may, at its option, conduct a background check on each potential winner.  Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any potential winner from receiving any prize based on such background check or reasonable suspicion of cheating. If Sponsor determines, in its sole discretion, that awarding any prize to such potential winner could result in a safety or security risk to any person or persons or could result in the disruption of any event associated with the Promotion. If awarding the prize can or will adversely impact the Winner's eligibility for benefits or programs of any kind, Sponsor can in their sole discretion choose at random a new winner.  Sponsor will, in its sole discretion, then select a new Winner by random drawing.  Winner will be notified by phone or e-mail by April 30, 2016.  To claim the Prize, winner should follow the instructions and comply with the conditions contained in his/her notification.
