To enter, You must submit the Design in accordance with these Rules, and through the Program site at URL: http://www.thinkgeek.com/brain/customer_bounty.cgi, Sponsor has no obligation to return Designs to You, or to provide You any information relating to the judging status or results.
  3. Eligibility.
  4. Program Period. A completed submission is referred to herein as an "Entry."
