The entry must fulfill all sweepstakes requirements, as specified, to be eligible to enter the prize drawings. Entries that are not complete or do not adhere to the rules or specifications may be disqualified at the sole discretion of ComTech. You may enter as many times as you like, provided that each entry meets the program’s rules for qualification. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the rules, your submission may be removed from eligibility at the sole discretion of ComTech.
a. Obtaining Entries:
i. Referring Businesses to ComTech: Entrants may use the website form located on the contest page, call or email and provide the name and contact information for the business you are referring. We will contact that person to explore how ComTech can help with their phones or IT support (or both). Once your referral becomes a ComTech client, you’ll receive one entry for each phone or computer supported by the initial service agreement. There is no limit on the number of referrals you can submit. Your entries are valid on the date the new client signs our service agreement. Examples: If you refer a business that signs a new service agreement for phone service with 10 phones, you will receive 10 entries into the drawing. If you refer a business that signs a new service agreements for IT support with 20 computers, you will receive 20 entries into the drawing. If you refer a business that signs an agreement for both IT support and phones, you will receive one entry per computer and phone supported by the initial service agreement.
ii. Referring Yourself: You may refer yourself to become a new client or to add a new service and receive entries once an agreement for service has been signed. For example: If you refer your own company and you sign an agreement for 5 phones, then your name will be entered into the drawing 5 times.
b. Rules for Qualification of Referrals
i. Only new service agreement types are eligible (IT Support or Phones). Upgrades or additions to existing client service agreements are not eligible.
ii. Existing clients are eligible to refer themselves and enter the drawing if adding a new service type. For example, if you are already a ComTech client for IT Support, but not phones, you can refer yourself for phone service and be eligible for entries based on the number of phones in the initial service agreement.
iii. Only referrals to businesses apply. ComTech does not serve home and personal use clients. Home-based businesses may qualify at ComTech’s discretion.
iv. ComTech reserves the right to deny any referrals that are deemed as not a fit for ComTech’s services for any reason, such as location, size, prior credit history, poor references, etc.
v. Referring yourself or your company: You may refer yourself provided no one else referred you first. i.e. if the reason we’re talking to you is because of a referral from another entrant, then you can’t refer yourself for all or part of the services.
c. Rules Regarding Entries
i. Entries for the 2020 referral program will not carry over into future drawings.
ii. In the case of duplicate referrals submitted, any drawing entries will go to the participant that first referred the client.
