§1 Valid for all prize payments from Apart with the registered 501(c)(3) non-profit Ashgro Inc.
§2 You must be able to accept a bank transfer from a US charity. If you are not able to do so, you may nominate your prize to an international registered charity of your choice, including Apart.
Currently, this is mostly an issue within countries with bank transfer embargos.
§3 If you do not respond or send your answer in any other format (e.g. a prize form) after two follow-ups and a maximum of one month after the first email, the prize money is donated back to Apart.
Writing an email with your special circumstances is a response and the prize can be handled later.
§4 If they are a foreign citizen from a country which does not have a tax treaty with the US we will be required to withhold 30% tax. If you compete in the US as a non-US citizen, you agree that we will file a form with the IRS for you.
