ESPN Winner's Circle
A. Overview of the Winner's Circle
1. ESPN Winner's Circle (the “Program”) is sponsored by ESPN/Starwave Partners, d/b/a ESPN Internet Venture (the “Sponsor”) and administered by ePrize, LLC (“Administrator”). Individuals can redeem points earned through the paid ESPN Fantasy Sports leagues or any other participating fantasy games for rewards available at http://espn.promo.eprize.com/rewards/ ("Website").
B. Redeeming Rewards Points
1. Individuals will receive an email within two (2) weeks after earning points through the paid ESPN Fantasy Sports leagues informing them that they have earned points ("Notification Email"). For all other fantasy games, Notification emails will be sent out within two (2) weeks following the conclusion of that program. Only individuals who receive a Notification Email are eligible to use the Program. This program is open to US residents only, with the exception of the World Cup games. Rewards redeemed will not be shipped to a location outside of the US. Specific State laws regarding the awarding of points and/or prizes will be followed accordingly.
2. Once an Individual has received a Notification Email, he/she will have thirty (30) days to visit the Website, login using his/her ESPN user ID and password, and follow the links and instructions to redeem his/her Winner Circle points for rewards available in both the General and League specific Champion sections of the Program. Champion Rewards will be fulfilled within a 6 - 8 week period following the completion of that particular Champion section. All other rewards will be fulfilled within a 4 - 6 week period from the date of the specific order. After thirty (30) days, points can only be redeemed for products available in the General section of the Program.
