The "authorized account holder" is the natural person assigned to an email address by an Internet service provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain.

6. REWARDS QUALIFICATIONS: Sponsor will award Rewards to participants based on their qualifying activity in Magic Online.

Each player's qualifying activity is calculated at the end of each monthly period and Rewards Qualifications are determined at that time. Each monthly period ends at the start of the scheduled downtime on the end date indicated in the MOPR 2014 Schedule. The next monthly period begins after that downtime is over. Please refer to the schedule set forth in the web rules located at http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=magic/online/rewards/welcome#schedule. Qualifying player activity and/or Rewards Qualifications cannot be carried over between monthly periods.

7. PROMO CARDS: Sponsor will add Magic Online digital Promo Cards directly to each participant's account based on his or her Rewards Qualifications during the monthly period.

The Promo Cards will be awarded within approximately 15 days of Sponsor's verification of the qualifying activity.
