APEX COVANTAGE PUBLISHING SURVEY:
WORKFLOW AUTOMATION AND ITS IMPACT ON PUBLISHERS’ SUCCESS
OFFICIAL SURVEY RULES
Thank you for participating in the Apex CoVantage (“Apex”) publishing survey (the “Survey”). As a special incentive, we have arranged that the first 100 qualified respondents that complete the Survey will be sent as a thank-you gift a USD $5.00 Starbucks Card*. This incentive is not a contest, drawing, lottery or sweepstakes, and no luck or skill is involved; but there are some eligibility requirements to qualify for the Starbucks card, as follows:
- You must be 18 years of age or older.
- You cannot be an employee of Apex, or any Apex Affiliate†;
- You must complete all of the mandatory questions in the Survey;
- You must submit valid, complete business contact information (first name, last name, name of company and email address); and
- Your Survey must be completed during the period between 12:01 AM Eastern Daylight Time (U.S.) (“EDT”) on June 20, 2017 and 11:59 PM EDT on July 18, 2017 (the “Eligibility Period”).‡
We will transmit the Starbucks cards electronically to the email addresses supplied by the first 100 qualified Survey respondents within ten (10) business days after the end of the Eligibility Period.
Your participation in, and completion of, the Survey constitutes your full acceptance of these Survey Rules and the decisions of Apex, which are final and binding. Only one Survey response per email address is allowed. The information gathered as a consequence of the Survey and the Survey responses themselves will be used only for Apex internal business purposes and will not be re-used, sold or shared in any manner.

You further agree that in any cause of action, in no case will the Indemnitees be liable for attorneys’ fees, punitive, consequential, direct or indirect damages, and that you waive the right to claim any damages whatsoever.
