ZYNGA CHALLENGE OFFICIAL RULES
No Purchase Necessary TO ENTER OR WIN.
These Official Rules apply to certain challenges conducted by Zynga Inc. (“Zynga”). Each individual challenge will be announced in-game via a pop-up post or other in-game announcement, or via email (“Challenge Posting”). A Challenge Posting will include the event date, end date and time, how to participate, and the prize(s). All information contained in a Challenge Posting is incorporated herein by reference.
ELIGIBILITY: UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN THE CHALLENGE POSTING, CHALLENGES ARE OPEN TO INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS WHO HAVE A VALID ACCOUNT FOR THE APPLICABLE ZYNGA GAME. Void Where Prohibited. An eligible minor MUST have a parent’s or legal GUARDIAN’S permission to participate. By participating, players (and, if an eligible minor, their parent or legal guardian) agree to be bound by these Official Rules and all applicable game rules and regulations and the decisions of the judges and/or Zynga, which are binding and final on all matters relating to this Challenge. Challenge is subject to all applicable federal, provincial, state and local laws.
HOW TO ENTER: To enter, follow the directions provided in the Challenge Posting during the period specified in the Challenge Posting (“Entry Period”). The Challenge must be completed during the Entry Period to be eligible. Limit one (1) entry per player per Challenge, unless otherwise stated in the Challenge Posting. Entries received from any player in excess of the stated limitation or after the Entry Period will be void. Zynga may prohibit any player from participating in a Challenge or receiving any prize if, in its sole discretion, it determines that such player has attempted to undermine the legitimate operation of the Challenge by cheating, hacking, unfair playing practices, the use of any script, macro or other automated means of entry or if such player has otherwise violated Zynga’s Terms of Service.
WINNER DETERMINATION: Potential winner(s) will be determined as set forth in the Challenge Posting from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. In the event of a tie, the first player who obtained the best time/score from among those tied will be determined the potential winner. Potential winner(s) will be notified in-game and may be required to execute and return an affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release within seven (7) days of date of issuance. If such documents are not returned within the specified time period, the prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or a potential winner is not in compliance with these Official Rules, the prize will be forfeited and, at Zynga’s discretion, an alternate winner from the remaining pool of eligible qualifying players may be selected using the same winner selection method.
PRIZE(S): The prize(s) will be set forth in the Challenge Posting. Prizes have no cash value and no value (retail or otherwise), outside of the applicable Zynga game. Prizes awarded in connection with a Challenge will be granted directly to each winner’s player account for the relevant game. Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee, either express or implied. Prizes may not be substituted, assigned or transferred or redeemed for cash, however Zynga reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute a prize (or portion thereof) with a comparable or better prize. Winners are responsible for any other costs and expenses associated with prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Limit one (1) prize per player per Challenge unless otherwise stated in the Challenge Posting.
PUBLICITY GRANT: Each winner (and, if an eligible minor, their parent or legal guardian), by acceptance of prize, except where legally prohibited, grants permission for Sponsor and its designees to use his/her name, avatar/user name and likeness, social handle/username and profile picture, address (city and state), and prize information for advertising, trade and promotional purposes without further compensation, in all media now known or hereafter discovered, worldwide in perpetuity, without notice or review or approval.
