Third Party Drawings Terms and Conditions

SweepJudge.com provides a third-party drawing service that uses randomness to choose winners for sweepstakes, raffles and other third party drawings. This service derives randomness through user interaction and proprietary algorithms. Below are the terms and conditions associated with using SweepJudge.com to select random winners in contests that require third party certification.

The Third-Party Drawing Service functions in the following manner:

  1. Upon registering, an email containing an automated password will be sent to you that you can use to login to the third party drawing service.
  2. Once logged in, you will select that you want to start a new drawing
  3. You will then create a unique title and choose whether you want to make this drawing private, public or entrant-accessible.
  4. Next, you will either upload a .txt file in a pre-defined format or paste in the entrant identifiers on separate lines using the online form. Note: entrants can be listed more than once, as long as they appear on separate lines in either the .txt file or in the Web form.
  5. Upon entering all of your entrants, you will be taken to the validation screen where you will be informed if there are any issues with the .txt file or online form that you submitted. If there are any issues, then you will have the ability to go back to the previous screen and make the necessary adjustments.
  6. Once all of your entrants are successfully entered, you will be asked to select the number of winners for your promotion. SweepJudge.com uses user interaction and proprietary algorithms to create one of the most randomized number picking services on the Web. All of the drawings are conducted using our unbiased and highly ethical techniques to provide entrants with as fair a chance of winning as possible.
  7. The final stage is to enter you billing information and then you will be emailed a link to a record of your drawing. You will also have a record in your ‘My Account’ section that you can reference at any time or even provide to auditors, should they request is. Each record contains the date and time of the drawing, the unique identifiers for all of the entrants and the winning entries.

During the initial phase of setting up a drawing on SweepJudge.com, you will have the option to make your drawing private, public or entrant-accessible.

Private drawings are only accessible to the owner of the respective account. The owner will need the appropriate login information, including email address and password, in order to view the full details of the respective drawing, including the list of entrants and winners.

Public drawings are accessible to all visitors of SweepJudge.com through the Public Records page. This enables visitors to view all details of a drawing, including a detailed list of all of the entrants and winners.

Entrant-accessible drawings are accessible to both owners of the drawing, as well in a limited capacity for entrants of the drawing. For the owners, they can login to their account to view the full list of entrants and winners for the respective drawing. For the entrants, they can enter in their unique identifier to determine if they were entered into the drawing and see if they were selected as a winner.

By holding drawings through SweepJudge.com, it will enable your blog, company or business to conduct a non-partisan drawing where you can combat any claims of an unequal opportunity drawing, as well as provide auditors with the ability to perform an audit of the records at any time.

SweepJudge.com provides additional documentation and safeguards that you can reference to combat claims of a falsified drawing.
