No acronyms, no nicknames or shortcuts will be accepted.  Entrants may participate in each of the daily quiz challenges.  However, entrants may only participate once per each day of the Contest.  Multiple entries to a daily set of questions in the Contest shall be deemed void.


4.
 Limitation. The use of any automated software or multiple accounts are prohibited.

5.
 Potential Winner and prize.  Each day of the Contest, all entrants that submit the correct set of answers before the relevant deadline to the FIFA Interactive World Cup Twitter account will automatically be entered into a randomly selected prize draw.  One (1) of these entrants shall be selected at random to win the daily prize bundle as specified on FIFA.com.  In total therefore, there will be seven (7) prize winners, one for each day of the Contest.  Entrants are permitted to win multiple prizes by entering and winning on more than one day of the Contest. 


6.
 Conditions to claim the prize. Each of the seven (7) prize winners will be notified by FIFA via its FIFA Interactive World Cup Twitter account.  In order to be a prize winner and claim the prize, the prize winner will be required first to sign and return to FIFA an Affidavit of eligibility and authorization (the "Affidavit") within forty eight (48) hours of having been notified by FIFA.  If a prize winner is a minor in his or her country of residence, the prize will be awarded to the minor’s parents or legal guardian, who must sign and return the Affidavit on behalf of the underage prize winner.  Please note that the Affidavit will also require the consent of the prize winner (or the prize winner’s parent or legal guardian (as appropriate)) to permit FIFA to use his/her name, photograph, likeness, voice, prize information and biographical information for publicity and promotional purposes without further compensation.  If a prize winner cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and/or return the requested document within the specified time period, the prize winner shall be disqualified and shall forfeit the opportunity to be a prize winner and claim the prize.  In such a situation, an alternative prize winner will be randomly selected from the remaining eligible entrants.
