These Tetris® Official Contest Rules (“Official Rules”) apply to all free to enter contests (“Free Tetris Contests” or a “Free Tetris Contest”) offered by N3twork Inc. as the sponsor of the Free Tetris Contests (“N3twork” or “Sponsor”) through the Tetris application (the “App”).
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. MAKING A PURCHASE WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. FREE TETRIS CONTESTS ARE OPEN ONLY TO PERSONS IN CERTAIN JURISDICTIONS WHO ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AT THE TIME OF ENTRY. PLEASE CHECK THE LIST OF ELIGIBLE JURISDICTIONS TO CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE ELIGIBLE.
ENTRY INTO A FREE TETRIS CONTEST CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES.
FREE TETRIS CONTESTS ARE VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW OR WHERE BONDING, REGISTRATION, OR OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET, OR WHERE THE METHODS OF ENTRY WOULD BE DEEMED CONSIDERATION. ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS APPLY.
Free Tetris Contests are not sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with any third party, including but not limited to, Apple Inc., Google, Inc. or their subsidiaries or affiliates.
Subject to these Official Rules, to enter into any Free Tetris Contest, you (“you”, “your”, “Entrant”) must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or older on the date of entry. To be eligible to receive a Prize (as defined below), the information associated with the Entrant’s entry, Tetris game ID, N3twork account, as applicable, must be true and accurate. The information associated with the Entrant’s account, Tetris game ID, or provided by Entrant to Sponsor, as the case may be, must identify the actual Entrant who has entered into and played the applicable Free Tetris Contest. Sponsor may try to contact a Winner (as defined in the Free Tetris Contest Play Rules section below) via a message in Entrant’s App inbox requesting verification information. If Sponsor cannot contact a Winner using the in-App message system associated with Entrant’s Tetris game ID, or if that Winner is unresponsive to such messaging, or if that Winner fails to provide sufficient verification and/or payment information requested, that Winner may forfeit his/her/their Prize. Some Free Tetris Contests are open only to residents of persons in specific countries, states, or provinces. Please check the list of eligible jurisdictions to confirm that you are eligible. If you attempt to, or actually enter into a Free Tetris Contest when you are not eligible, your entry is void and you may not win a Prize.
Officers, directors, employees, agents, sales representatives, distributors, and contractors (collectively, “employees”) of Sponsor and The Tetris Company, Inc., and each of their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising, promotion, or web design agencies, and any other entity involved in the development or administration of its contests (each a “Contest Entity”, collectively the “Contest Entities”), and all persons residing in the same households as employees, including but not limited to, immediate family members, are not eligible to win a Prize in Free Tetris Contests while the employee is employed or engaged by a Contest Entity and for six months following the employee’s last day working with or for a Contest Entity.
Sponsor reserves the right to verify an Entrant’s eligibility before, during, or after any Free Tetris Contest. Third parties may conduct eligibility verification. Certain Free Tetris Contests are subject to additional eligibility and identity verification requirements.
You must comply with the contest laws of your country/jurisdiction. You acknowledge that certain countries/jurisdictions have laws about contests that may prevent Sponsor from awarding you a Prize. If you are a Winner and this is the case for your country/jurisdiction, you acknowledge that you may not receive any Prize from Sponsor. By entering a Free Tetris Contest, you acknowledge the risks, and understand that you may win, but not be able to receive a Prize.
Sponsor will announce Free Tetris Contests through the App from time to time. You may join a Free Tetris Contest while it is live. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel a Free Tetris Contest, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, with no restrictions.
Any Winner of a Free Tetris Contest, upon completion of all verifications and obligation requirements described in these Official Rules, may be entitled to receive one or more cash prize(s) and/or other rewards, as determined in the Sponsor’s sole discretion (each a “Prize”, together the “Prize(s)”). There may be multiple Winners, as further described below. In such cases, the multiple Winners will receive the Prize under the procedures described below. You may request a list of the total of all accrued Prizes you have won in the Free Tetris Contests by contacting us via the Customer Support Link in the App settings.
Each user may establish, maintain, use, and control only one Tetris game ID associated with the App downloaded by Entrant. Each Tetris game ID may only be owned, maintained, used and controlled by one individual. To avoid doubt, users may not “co-own” Tetris game IDs associated with the App downloaded by Entrant. If Sponsor determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one Tetris game ID for the App, besides any other rights that Sponsor may have, Sponsor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any of your access to the App and/or your Tetris game ID(s) and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any Prizes to you.
Sponsor will only issue a Prize and any tax forms to the individual verified, in Sponsor’s sole discretion, as owning the Tetris game ID for the winning Prize Round Winner and/or Additional Prize Round Winner. Sponsor uses your Tetris game ID information to contact winners and request verification information as needed. Out of date or incorrect Tetris game ID information provided when you enter a Free Tetris Contest, or provided as part of the verification process, may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information for your Tetris game ID or in connection with requests for verification may cause termination of your access to the App and/or Tetris game ID and forfeiture of any Prizes awarded.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding for all matters related to Free Tetris Contests. The Sponsor shall not be obligated to award any Prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules and/or the App. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be provided to the Winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize cannot be fulfilled to the Winner because of any law, rule or regulation, or if the Winner cannot claim the Prize, then Sponsor reserves the right not to award the Prize. The Winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. Each Winner agrees that Sponsor may deduct taxes from the Prize to the extent required by law. Each Winner shall provide Sponsor with accurate information about their identity and country of residence.
To receive a complete list of Winners or a copy of the Official Rules, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to N3twork Inc., Winner’s List, PO Box 26209 San Francisco, California 94126, United States.
The Winner(s) of a Free Tetris Contest will be determined under the Free Tetris Rules set out below.
Free Tetris Contests are conducted under the Sponsor’s supervision. The Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all matters relating to Free Tetris Contests. The Winner(s) will be notified via a message within the App connected with your game ID; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate method of notification. Winner must respond to in App message within 5 days of posting of notice; failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the Prize. The in App notice will direct you to provide Prize claim and verification information and provide you information on how and when to submit the information (e.g., through our then current customer service provider, such as Zendesk); failure to provide sufficient information within 5 days, as determined by Sponsor, will result in forfeiture of the Prize. If Sponsor determines an Entrant/Winner is ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize(s) or to redraw a new Winner from the remaining eligible Winners.
CANADIAN RESIDENTS (EXCLUDING QUEBEC). If you are a Canadian resident and are selected as a Winner, you will also be required to answer a skills-based math test in order to be qualified to win the Prize. Failure to answer the skills based math question within 12 hours of being provided the question will result in disqualification and forfeiture of the Prize.
The total approximate retail value (“ARV”) will vary from Free Tetris Contest to Free Tetris Contest. The ARV will equal the sum of all Prizes offered in a Free Tetris Contest as announced prior to the start of the Free Tetris Contest.
Notice to all Entrants: By entering a Free Tetris Contest or accepting a Prize, you agree to conform to all federal, state and local laws and regulations. When applicable, the Winner(s) may be required to execute and return (and winning may be conditioned upon the Winner(s) executing and returning) to Sponsor, within ten (10) business days, an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability and Publicity Release drafted by Sponsor to be eligible for the Prize. The Winner(s) may be required in Sponsor’s sole discretion to complete tax forms as a condition to the delivery of the Prize. Winner(s) may also be required to furnish proof of identity, postal address and birth date to receive a Prize.
Unless prohibited by law, your acceptance of a Prize constitutes your permission to use your name, alias, avatar (or other in-game representations/characters), statements, submissions, photograph, likeness, voice, address (city and state) and testimonials in all media, in perpetuity, as Sponsor or its designee finds appropriate for publicity with no compensation to that Entrant or any review or approval rights, notifications, or permissions; and constitutes your consent to disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties (including, without limitation, placing the Winners’ name on a Winners’ list). Notwithstanding any rights of publicity, privacy or otherwise (whether or not statutory) anywhere in the world, your acceptance of a Prize constitutes your authorization to (i) have Sponsor (and its agents, consultants and employees) photograph, record, tape, film and otherwise visually and audiovisually record you, (ii) have Sponsor (and its agents, consultants and employees) use, reproduce, disseminate, alter, edit, dub, modify, distort, add to, subtract from, process and otherwise exploit any results of that activity (including, without limitation, any manner that activity may be recorded or remembered or modified) or derivatives or extensions or imitations thereof as Sponsor sees fit, in any medium or technology known or invented, throughout the universe in perpetuity, including, without limitation, for illustration, art, promotion, advertising, trade or any other purpose; and (iii) have relinquished any right that you may have to examine or approve the completed product or products or the advertising copy or printed matter that may be used in conjunction therewith or the use to which it may be applied.
In order to be eligible for a Prize above $1,000 (a “Large Prize”), Sponsor may require a winner to, within ten (10) business days of winning the relevant Free Tetris Contest, (i) sign a Liability and Publicity Release as drafted by Sponsor, which may impose obligations beyond those stated in these Official Rules, (ii) partake in an interview conducted by Sponsor or its agent, providing truthful and accurate information in response to the interview questions, and (iii) be photographed, recorded, taped, filmed, or otherwise visually or audiovisually recorded while partaking in such an interview or in other circumstances to be determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. A winner’s refusal to fulfill any of these obligations shall cause the winner to be ineligible for the Large Prize and Sponsor may withhold or revoke the awarding of the Large Prize. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, shall reasonably determine the subject, timing, and means of interviewing the winner.
CAUTION AND WARNING: ANY ATTEMPT TO DELIBERATELY DAMAGE ANY WEBSITE, DEVICE, OR APP, OR TO UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF A FREE TETRIS CONTEST IS A VIOLATION OF CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAWS. SHOULD SUCH AN ATTEMPT BE MADE, THE SPONSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO SEEK DAMAGES OR OTHER REMEDIES FROM ANY SUCH PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTEMPT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Participation in a Free Tetris Contest is at Entrant’s own risk. Sponsor shall not be liable for: (1) failed, returned or misdirected notifications based on inaccurate information provided by the Winner(s) as part of an entry; (2) entries and responses to Winner(s) notifications which are lost, late, incomplete, illegible, unintelligible, postage-due, misdirected, damaged or otherwise not received by the intended recipient in whole or in part or for computer or technical error of any kind; (3) any electronic miscommunications or failures, technical hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, or failed incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmissions which may limit an Entrant's ability to participate in a Free Tetris Contest; (4) any technical malfunctions of the telephone network, computer on-line system, computer equipment, software, program malfunctions or other failures, delayed computer transactions or network connections that are human, mechanical or technical, or any combination thereof, including any injury or damage to Entrant's or any other person's computer or mobile device related to or resulting from downloading the App or otherwise for a Free Tetris Contest; or (5) any warranty regarding any Prize or any component thereof.
FREE TETRIS CONTESTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND SPONSOR DOES NOT MAKE ANY, AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL, REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND REGARDING THOSE CONTESTS.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE HEREIN OR OTHERWISE, SPONSOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE OR OBLIGATED WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT OR UNDER CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR (A) ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF REVENUE, GOODWILL, OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS) (B) AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF THE PRIZE FOR THE APPLICABLE CONTEST, (C) DATA LOSS OR COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, AND/OR (D) ANY MATTER BEYOND SUCH PARTIES’ REASONABLE CONTROL.
By entering a Free Tetris Contest, you agree to and do release and hold harmless Sponsor, its respective parents, subsidiaries and affiliated entities, directors, officers, employees, attorneys, agents, and representatives (the “Released Parties”) from any damage, injury, death, loss, claim, action, demand, or other liability (collectively, “Claims”) that may arise from your acceptance, possession and/or use of any Prize or your participation in a Free Tetris Contest, or from any misuse or malfunction of any Prize awarded, regardless of whether such Claims, or knowledge of the facts constituting such Claims, exist at the time of entry, exist during entry or arise thereafter, and indemnify each of the Released Parties from any damages arising therefrom. Any person attempting to defraud or tamper with a Free Tetris Contest may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
