Once contest results are reviewed and graded, prizes are awarded. The scoring results of a contest will not be changed regardless of any official statistics or scoring adjustments made by the leagues at later times or dates, except at GridRival®’s sole and absolute discretion.

In such a situation, GridRival® may pay out any withheld or revoked prizes to the other entrants in the relevant contest in a manner consistent with the Rules of the Contest.
Entrants may withdraw their cash prize awards as well as cash deposits by using the "Withdrawal" option on the Website or app. Entrants may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and forms of identification including but not limited to a Driver's License, Proof of Residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by GridRival® in order to complete the withdrawal of prizes.

Disqualification or forfeiture of any prizes may also occur if it is determined any such entrant did not comply with these Terms of Service in any manner.
All taxes associated with the receipt of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that the awarding of any prizes to winners of a contest is challenged by any legal authority, GridRival® reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
No substitution or transfer of prize is permitted. All prizes are awarded "as is" and without warranty of any kind, express or implied (including, without limitation, any implied warranty of merchantability for a particular purpose).

Verification and Withdrawal
GridRival®, Inc. will take appropriate steps to prevent unauthorized withdrawals from consumer accounts. Users are subject to an automated Knowledge Base Authentication ("KBA") verification process provided whenever a user attempts to withdraw funds.

GridRival®, Inc. shall use its best efforts to respond to such complaints within ten (10) business days.

If more information is required for GridRival®, Inc. to process the complaint, the response will note the form and nature of the necessary additional information needed.
Transaction, Withdrawal, and Deposit Limits
Upon starting operations, GridRival® will establish and maintain transaction limits on its activities in order to mitigate BSA/AML/OFAC risks. The Company has set a limit of $500 for Users on its platform. This $500 limit applies to daily deposit activity and per contest. Users can participate in multiple contests at a time, up to $500 for each contest. Outside of account closures, withdrawals of funds are limited to $2,000 USD per day.
