How are OMG winners chosen?

The winner is selected by a third-party expert RANDOM.ORG through a 5-step process:

1) All Entries (Free Web Entries and Donation Entries) are pulled off the database using SQL scripts into a spreadsheet.

2) Each entry is automatically assigned a row in the spreadsheet, marked by the email address of the person associated with the entry (i.e. if you have 20 Entries, your email address will be listed in 20 consecutive rows).

3) The email addresses are then uploaded to the database.

4) RANDOM.ORG then conducts a complex process to ensure that the selection is securely random.

5) RANDOM.ORG then notifies LLC of the winning email address.

Please note that only your email address is provided to RANDOM.ORG.
