4. USE OF SERVICE
a. Permitted Uses and Restrictions on Use
to use the Services to prepare a DV Lottery application for subsequent
electronic submission to the designated official U.S. government site.
The Services may be used by the registered users only for their intended
purposes, and may not be used to prepare immigration forms, supporting
documents or letters for third parties, whether for a fee or not, or for
any purpose other than the submission of a DV Lottery application in the
name and on behalf of the registered user.
You agree and understand that application made through the DV Lottery program is a lottery and not a guarantee of winning. All applications submitted receive an equal opportunity. A U.S. Governmental computer will randomly select eligible entrants. Company is not involved in the selection of winners.
Although we endeavor to help you avoid having your DV Lottery application rejected by the State Department for non-compliance with the application and supporting documentation requirements or with technical requirements applicable to the electronic images (digital photographs) to be attached to such application, choosing our Services does not necessarily guarantee a better or expedited handling. The eligibility requirements have been detailed and listed on the Site to the best of our knowledge and may not be updated on a regular basis. It is up to you to review the requirements and ensure that you qualify within the guidelines. If you have any questions, please email us
It is the userís responsibility to provide all necessary information, electronic images and other materials the U.S. Government requires for the purposes of entering the DV Lottery on time. Company cannot guarantee that it will be able to notify all users whose applications submitted through this Site are missing items, materials, electronic images or anything else required by U.S. immigration laws and regulations. Please note that registered users have three (3) months from the date of submission of their applications to the Site to respond to our requests for additional information, electronic images (photographs) of the applicant and any other material Company deems necessary for the purposes of making a proper DV Lottery application to the U.S. Government or until the official cutoff date, as announced by the U.S. Government, for making DV Lottery applications, whichever is earlier. Those users who fail to comply with the Siteís directions or Companyís instructions shall forfeit all amounts they have made in payment for the Services.
Applications submitted after the Company submission period will automatically be processed for the next lottery. Please be advised that in the event the U.S. Government modifies the rules for participating in the DV Lottery, including but not limited to, the list of countries the nationals of which are eligible, time periods for submission of DV Lottery applications, requirements for the electronic images (photographs) to be attached to the DV Lottery application, content of the DV Lottery applications, and any other requirements, we will attempt to contact you in order to comply with such modifications but cannot guarantee that your application will be successfully made in a timely manner. Company also specifically disclaims any liability or responsibility for the success or timeliness of making a DV Lottery application on your behalf in the event the U.S. State Departmentís website or any other U.S. Government website designed to accept such applications is down, malfunctioning or otherwise unable to accept such application. You acknowledge that the operation and availability of the communications systems used for accepting DV Lottery applications and interacting with this Site (including, without limitation, public telephone network, computer networks and the Internet) or to transmit information to the U.S. Government agencies can be unpredictable and may, from time to time, interfere with or prevent access to services or their operation. Company is not in any way responsible for any such interference with or prevention of your use of or access to services. For all DV Lottery applications processed by Company on behalf of registered users who accepted and paid for the Services that could not be successfully transmitted to the U.S. Government for reasons beyond our control, we will attempt to resubmit such applications in the following year, provided that the registered users so affected consent and the DV Lottery rules enable them to apply with respect to eligibility.
