5.1 Artstorm specifies the procedure of selecting the winner for each Event in the relevant Announcements.
5.2 The Prizes are awarded “AS IS” and WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, expressed or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement).
5.3 Please note, if the party responsible for providing the Prizes is the Partner according to the relevant Announcement, paragraph 4.4 of these Promo Rules shall apply without derogation.
5.4 There are no alternatives to the Prizes. The right to the Prize is non-transferable. If Artstorm cannot provide the declared Prizes due to circumstances beyond its control, Artstorm reserves the right to award substitute Prizes of equal value. Prizes in the form of services or entitlements can be sold or transferred under no circumstances.
5.5 Any taxes and costs in connection with receiving the Prize are to be paid by the winner, except for the cost of sending the prize money. For the avoidance of doubt, this provision does not exclude any obligation of the awarding party to comply with mandatory taxation rules stipulated by the applicable laws.

The information specified above shall be provided within the terms and in the manner separately specified by Artstorm or its Partner. Otherwise, the Participant may be deprived of the right to receive the Prize.
5.8 If the Participant eligible for the Prize breaches the provisions of these Promo Rules, the Announcement, or other rules regulating their participation in the Event, including those related to retrieving the Prize, they lose the right to receive the Prize. In such a case, Artstorm or the Partner has the right either to:a) redistribute the Prize among other winners;
5.9 If a team (group) of Participants is eligible for the Prize, the Prize should be owned by the team members in equal shares or, if possible, equally distributed among them. Each Participant cannot transfer the right to receive the Prize to its team (group) member, except for the cases provided by the Announcement. Neither Participant has the right to claim the Prize on behalf of their teammate, including when the Prize is unclaimed by such a teammate.
6.1 The winners will be notified of the Prize in the corresponding Event Announcement or by any other applicable means (for example, by an email address previously given). Artstorm is not responsible if the winner fails to receive the notice about the Prize due to any security settings, absence, or provision of incorrect contact information. If the winner fails to respond within 90 days, the Prize may be forfeited, and an alternate winner may be selected based on the placement within the leaderboard.
6.2 If for any reason the winner cannot accept the Prize within 90 days, they lose the right to receive the Prize. However, Artstorm, at its sole discretion, may extend such a term.
Due to the nature and scale of online competition, the Event will not be restarted or made null due to bugs, intentional disconnections, server crashes, or unintentional disconnections.
