LEXISNEXIS® Litigator’s Verdict & Settlement Exchange Points PROGRAM (“LVSE Program”). No purchase is necessary. VOID WHEREEVER PROHIBITED BY LAW. This LVSE Program is a unique promotional offer that is available only to Eligible Users (defined below) who register on the LexisNexis® Litigator’s Verdict & Settlement Exchange (“LVSE”). The LVSE Program is sponsored and conducted by LexisNexis, a division of RELX Inc. (“LN”). Eligible Users using the LVSE in accordance with these LVSE Rules and in compliance with the then current Terms and Conditions of Use, see www.lexisnexis.com/terms, can earn Points (defined below) for activities, such as, but not limited to registering on the JVSE, uploading documents, or submitting cases. Points are then deposited into the Eligible User’s individual LVSE Program account (“LVSE Account”) and can be used to download documents from the LVSE located at http://www.lexisnexis.com/jvsubmission/default.aspx. The documents available for download, which are uploaded to the LVSE by Eligible Users, may change from time to time, without notice, in the sole discretion of LN. LVSE Program participation does not require a monetary fee.

LVSE PROGRAM PARTICIPATION. The LVSE Program allows Eligible Users to earn Points throughout the Term (defined below). The LVSE Program shall run from October 30, 2016 through termination of the LVSE Program (“Term”). For the purposes of the LVSE Program, “Points” mean those particular LVSE Program measurement increments, which can be used to download documents from the LVSE. Points and their values are: (a) determined by LN in its discretion; (b) subject to change without notice; and (c) may vary among Eligible Users. All Points, including but not limited to earning, saving and using must be used in compliance with these LVSE Rules. Points are not transferable and Points cannot be earned after the LVSE Program is terminated or an individual user’s participation in the LVSE Program has been terminated, as set forth below. Unused Points are forfeited upon termination of the LVSE Program or termination of a user’s participation.
Eligible Users may start earning Points by registering and accessing the http://www.lexisnexis.com/jvsubmission/default.aspx website (“Site”), subject to the terms set forth herein and on the Site. Participation in the LVSE Program constitutes acceptance of these LVSE Rules. These LVSE Rules may change, in the sole discretion of LN, with or without notice to any participating users. LN shall not be liable to any participating users for any changes in the LVSE Rules. If a change occurs then the Eligible Users continued participation in the LVSE Program shall constitute agreement to the changes. However, if an Eligible User decides to terminate participation then that user can do so by notifying LN at http://www.lexisnexis.com/en-us/contact-us/contact-us.page , and upon such termination the user may use Points accumulated up to the date of termination. An Eligible User’s Points shall be reflected in their LVSE Account. LN is not responsible or liable for any theft, misuse or disclosures associated with a LVSE Account. Any person who tries to create more than one identity in order to obtain more Points shall be disqualified in the sole discretion of LN.

An Eligible User’s Points are not transferable.
