Default T&C Resident Definiton

Sorry if this is a silly question but it's one that i've never really been 100% of the answer. Do the terms "US Resident"/"Resident of the United States" mean the same as the USCIS's term of "Permanent Resident"? I'm thinking they do....

I'm talking in terms of corporation's T&Cs. Amazon used "US Resident" on a competition they sent me today. And Sony PSN sent me an email saying I can have ID Fraud protection after they lost my details to hackers, but only if I am a "Resident of the United States". I'm on a H1B so not a "Permanent Resident".

I think you are a resident of the US.

The IRS does too, I'll bet!

(it's not the same as Permanent Resident, an immigration status.)

US resident means you are resident in the US. Nothing to do with immigration status. Think about it for a second. If "US resident" meant "Permanent Resident" in USCIS terms, all US citizens would be left out of the group.
