Officially, the site does not know where you are until you give them your contact details.

If you enter a contest, and you win, there is nothing stopping you giving the address of a friend in the US (etc) who can then forward the prize to you.

Alternatively, you can simply hope that your country is added to the "allowed" list by the time the contest ends (as I have done - I had a number of entries in the laser contest before the UK was allowed to win anything).

Chances are you can enter a contest, but cannot currently win, although I believe the people in charge are working on allowing more countries to enter. There should be a complete list of terms and conditions on one of the pages for the contest.
