  1. The Kaspersky Club runs a bonus program to collect and exchange points for licenses or souvenirs. Earn points for your activity in the club, which you can collect and exchange in the store to receive licenses for Kaspersky products and exclusive souvenirs with the company's logo and free delivery! Who can take part in the bonus program? How many points are awarded for what? How long does it take for points to be received? What can points be deducted for? Where can I see the number of accumulated points and do they have an expiry date? Are there discounts for the store and if so how can I receive them? What can you do if you really want a license or souvenir but don't have enough points? Where can I find more details about the souvenir's specifications? How can I complete an order and check if it's been placed correctly? Where can I check the status of my order? How much does delivery cost and which regions and countries can souvenirs be delivered to? Are there any delivery restrictions? Is there a minimum order for delivery? In what cases might a souvenir be replaced or not sent at all? What are the delivery times? What should you do when you receive your order and what if it arrives damaged? Can you pay for an order using the clubs accumulated as part of the rating system for motivating club members? Final provisions
  2. Do you follow news and events from the world of technology and innovation? Are you an avid technology fan and user? Having a lot of thoughts on IT industry but no one to share them with? If this sounds like you, then you're exactly who we're looking for! You're more than welcome to take part in the Content Creator subprogram. Essence of the subprogram The Content Creator subprogram is part of the broader Kaspersky Club Development program and part of the rating system for motivating club members. The aim of the program is to increase the number of publications on the club's forum through regular posting and discussions. Who can participate? To take part in the subprogram you should be a club member (i. e. to be registered on kasperskyclub.com or forum.kasperskyclub.ru). How to participate Those participating in the subprogram need to regularly publish IT-related posts on the club's forum, which can be news, lifehacks, announcements, reviews of technology or software, etc. Not only do participants need to post material, each post needs to be accompanied by a brief analysis, a reasonable expression of unbiased opinion, and it should also provoke (in the positive sense of the word) other members to engage in a discussion. One way to do this is by posing a simple question ("Would you buy it?", "Do you think this new device is useful?", etc.). The plan for each post should generally consist of the following stages: a search for interesting content => an introduction summarizing the piece => a full or summarized version of the text => an active hyperlink leading to the source => your personal objective opinion on the published content => a question for club members to discuss or another method to spark discussion => monitoring feedback and keeping the discussion going. Participants are not allowed to post content without providing an active hyperlink leading to the source or content which contains direct or hidden advertising. Where and how often should you post Content must be posted in the relevant sections and topics on the club's forum. If a topic has already been created for the subject of the content, that's where it should be posted. A new topic can be created if there are no suitable subjects. We recommend posting content at least once every three days. Rewards Those participating in the program earn clubs for each piece posted, which count towards the rating system to motivate club members, or points which are counted in the program for collecting points that can be exchanged for licenses or souvenirs, illustrated in the table below: Content Creator subprogram Number of posts per month Number of clubs Number of points For each post One-off bonus For each post One-off bonus 1-10 20 100 10 50 11-20 25 200 12 100 21 and above 30 300 15 150 Note — the club's admin has the discretion to increase the set rate for the size of a reward based on the quality of posts, how actively club members discuss the published content, etc. The member chooses which type of points to receive as a reward. The type of reward can't be changed more than once every three months. Members who have not selected a type of reward are automatically awarded clubs. In order to receive rewards, members need to send an email within the first ten days of each month to rating@kasperskyclub.ru, containing links to the content they've published over the last month. Legal terms Kaspersky Club administration reserves the right to terminate the subprogram at any time with no prior notice, as well as to make changes to the present rules, refuse to reward a participant or exclude a participant from the subprogram should it come to light that the participant has broken these rules, participated unfairly in the subprogram, or has broken the Forum Rules. By participating in the subprogram, you consent unconditionally to abide by its rules.
  3. A new page in the Kaspersky Club's history is being written as you read these lines. A lot has changed over the years since the project began: an entire generation of club members has grown up, new traditions have been born, they've multiplied, and the world of IT security has come so far… Active participation in our project is aimed at, among other things, the exciting chance to be invited to one of the club's memorable birthday parties. We've been to a lot of destinations — Iceland, Cambodia, Turkey, Armenia, and a whole host of Russian cities — to celebrate each anniversary of our favorite project's creation. The responsibility of deciding who gets invited was a heavy burden that the club's board members shouldered for many years. A few months in advance of the big day, the project's main managing and advisory body would already have begun painstakingly weighing up the contribution made by each forum member who showed their worth over the past year. Not only was it difficult to recall and count every club member's activity, but their contributions also had to be ranked somehow in order of importance. Nevertheless, this system for evaluating each member's contribution to decide who gets invited on the trip was fine-tuned over the years to make it as objective as possible. Yet it still had one key flaw — it lacked transparency. Some club members who wasn't invited complained because they didn't understand why a certain Mr. Smith had received an invitation when they didn't. Apart from that, according to the established practice we evaluated only users within the club when deciding who will make the list, taking into account the contests and quizzes they organized, help offered to other users to solve various problems, and useful comments in topics and blogs, etc. But the number of projects which benefit Kaspersky has grown over the last few years. That's why from now on the selection process to draw up the guest list will take into account activity both inside and outside the club, including in the following programs: — Content Creator subprogram — Beta Testing of Kaspersky Products and Services program — Kaspersky Brand Ambassadors program How can you make it onto the guest list to celebrate the biggest and most important event in the club life? The rating system for motivating Kaspersky club members (further referred to as the rating system) will be used to draft the guest list for the trip, which counts the points club members earn in the programs listed above. In order to avoid confusion with the existing points system, the new points will be called "clubs" — the name of the club's internal currency which received the most votes in the competition to pick a name. Note: the rating system being introduced will not implement a formal approach to club members, doesn't change the original idea of the community, and doesn't aim to formalize relations between the forum members and Kaspersky. The rating system is designed to motivate club members to display activity. For example, it aims to motivate forum members who didn't see a point in helping other users to solve problems related to Kaspersky products and services before (those who considered this to be the role of official Kaspersky Technical Support), or those who didn't think they were capable of becoming beta testers. The new system lets these members know that all of these contributions are valued by the company, and they don't go unnoticed or unrewarded. The rating system allows each club member including newcomers to independently evaluate their own capabilities to find how exactly they can be useful and what they can receive in return. The rating of club members will be calculated by a tallying commission comprised of forum members based on the results of participation in the programs listed above. The list of achievements and number of clubs awarded for them are presented in the tables below. Content Creator subprogram According to the rules of the program Kaspersky Products Consultant program Product segment Number of cases solved per month Number of clubs Per case solved One-off bonus For personal (home) users 1-100 5 101-200 10 201 and above 15 500 For corporate users 1-10 25 11-50 50 51 and above 75 Note: clubs for participation in a program will not be awarded if at the end of the reporting month the member in accordance with the established procedure has chosen an alternative form of reward listed as an option in the program rules. Beta Testing of Kaspersky Products and Services program Achievement Number of clubs Beta testing and getting into the Top 50 ranked by the number of issues detected 1500 Issues detected 1st priority (for each) 750 2nd priority (for each) 500 3rd priority (for each) 250 4th priority (for each) 100 Kaspersky Brand Ambassadors program Achievement Number of clubs Share 1 Click 1 This isn't an exhaustive list of all the activity types that will be awarded clubs. The club admins can and will reward participants additionally for special achievements at their discretion. The process for calculating club member ratings is shown in the table below. Program Sources of data necessary to calculate and award clubs Frequency of rating updates Content Creator subprogram Data from the participants who sent links to their published content in accordance with the established procedure Generally once a month but at least once every quarter Beta Testing of Kaspersky Products and Services Data from those responsible for organizing and conducting beta testing Upon completion of beta testing Kaspersky Brand Ambassadors Data from those responsible for calculating the results of program participants Once a month Based on the current data from the rating system, club admin can compose a guest list for another event, fully or partially resetting the rating of members who've taken part in the event or without resetting it. The latest rating of members is generally published once a month following the calculation month, and is posted in a dedicated topic. The club admin sets the deadline for calculating and publishing the rating of members before the guest list is drafted for the trip to celebrate the club's birthday or for other events. Any questions related to the allocation of clubs are accepted within 30 days from the moment the current member rating is published. Any requests to reconsider clubs allocation after this period will be ignored. The club admin's achievements are evaluated according to a different set of criteria set by Kaspersky. Admin ratings aren't published, but they're taken into account when the guest list is being drawn up. A limited number of places to be filled is set by the club admin to invite members to the club's birthday celebrations in descending order according to their rating based on the total amount of club scores they accumulated over the period taken into account for the calculation (i. e. between the club's last birthday celebration and the next one). The minimum amount of clubs needed to make it onto the guest list for the trip is 2000. In cases when several members has earned the same amount of clubs and are competing for a place in the list, the final decision is taken by the club admin. The club admin has the discretion to offer all or individual members alternative ways to spend their clubs. A list of these offers is posted in a dedicated topic, with the corresponding number of clubs to be subtracted from a member's rating if they choose to take up one of these offers, as well as the conditions of receiving such an offer. The rating of all club members is reset back to zero once a year after each of the club's birthday trips. Members who were invited on the trip but were unable to attend for a valid reason (due to illness, a business trip, or other unforeseeable circumstances) may be offered valuable gifts as a compensation at the discretion of the club admin, a list of which is posted in a dedicated forum topic. Members who agree to exchange their invitation on the trip for a gift will have their rating fully reset back to zero, regardless of how many clubs the gift is valued at. If a member has turned down their invitation to go on the trip and also turns down the gifts they've been offered, 50% of the clubs they accumulated will be carried over into the next calculation period. In this case, only the clubs accumulated over the period between the club's last birthday celebration and the next one are wiped, i. e. there is no repeat subtraction of previously accumulated clubs (for the previous calculation periods). At the club admin's discretion, clubs can be carried over into the next calculation period in full for all or individual members. Clubs can not be used as points awarded for participating in the program to collect and exchange points for licenses or souvenirs. It is not permitted to convert clubs into points or vice versa. Club admin reserves the right to terminate the entire rating system at any time with no prior notice, as well as make changes to its rules, refuse to award clubs to a member or exclude them from the rating system should it come to light that they've broken these rules, participated unfairly in the rating system, or taken actions with the related intent of bullying, insulting, threatening or bothering any other individual. By participating in the rating system, you consent unconditionally to abide by its rules. You can discuss the rating system in a related topic.
