The Global Game official rules of play
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
GAME DESCRIPTION: The Games are a competition where players play the role of an agent using clues from The Global Game (TGG) website TheGlobalGame.net (The Website) - to search various locales around selected Cities, the Internet, and other devices for answers to various questions. Each agent will begin the game at a specified location and by correctly answering a series questions will complete the Game, ending up at a final location. The Game clues and answers are communicated to and from Mission Control via mobile telephone SMS texts or direct Website access. Agent names and dossiers will be posted from time to time on the Game's online leader board (the Leader Board).
ELIGIBILITY: Only players who are registered at the Website and eighteen (18) years of age or older are eligible to play. Juniors, from 12 to 18, may enter the Games and register on the TGG website, only if accompanied or sponsored by a parent or guardian. Juniors under 12 are ineligible to play.
HOW TO PLAY: To play, visit the Website -- TheGlobalGame.net -- and complete the agent registration form with the information requested. All of the requested information must be completed in order to participate in TGG. Once a player successfully registers at the Website, he or she can play any of the current Games, starting at the starting location in each city and follow the game play and clue instructions sent to the players via SMS to search for answers. Each correctly answered clue will lead to another clue. Once all questions have been successfully answered, the agent will have an elapsed time which will be entered onto the Leader Board position for that game and onto the Agents personal Dossier. Players can start playing at any time during the Game Period, depending on the rules of the game. Agents who join the Game at the very beginning will have a chance to play more cities and therefore have a greater chance to gain points. Questions must be answered in the order given. A player's time at the end of the Game will be used to determine such player's position, if any, on the Leader Board for the Game played. The Leader Board will list those players with the fastest times. Depending on the type of game and the elapsed time taken, Status or User points may be earned.
COSTS OF THE GAME: Most Games have no entry or registration cost to play and have no entry costs for any section of the game. The Game communication to and from Mission Control may be via SMS and you may be charged by your supplier. The player understands that he/she may be charged during the Game. If you will not accept these charges from your telecom Services Provider then do not play this game.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Should a game have prizes for winners, each prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. Any Winners will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, The Prize Claim Documents). If a winner is not of legal age of majority in his or her state of residence (a "minor"), at The Promoter's option, applicable prize either will be awarded in the name of parent or legal guardian of winner, or parent or legal guardian of winner will be required to ratify and sign the Prize Claim Documents. If a winner (or such winner's parent or legal guardian) fails or refuses to sign and return all the Prize Claim Documents within seven (7) days of prize notification, or a shorter time if required by exigencies, the winner may be disqualified and the player with the next best time on the applicable Leader Board may be selected. Any winner's travel companion must sign a Liability Release prior to ticketing.
GENERAL RELEASE: Acceptance of a prize constitutes winner's permission for The Promoter to use winner's name, photograph, likeness, voice, biographical information, statements and address (city and state) for advertising and/or publicity purposes worldwide and in all forms of media now known or hereafter developed, in perpetuity, without further compensation, except where legally prohibited. Players (or if minors, their parents or legal guardians) agree that the Game Entities and their respective officers, directors and employees (A) shall not be responsible or liable for any losses, damages or injuries of any kind resulting from participation in the Game or any Game-related activity, or from players' acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) HAVE NOT MADE AND HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY, REPRESENTATION OR GUARANTEE EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN FACT OR IN LAW, WITH RESPECT TO ANY PRIZE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TO SUCH PRIZE'S MERCHANTABILITY OR QUALITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. The Promoter assumes no responsibility for any damage to an player's computer system which is occasioned by accessing the Website or participating in the Game, or for any computer system, phone line, hardware, software or program malfunctions, or other errors, failures, delayed computer transmissions or network connections that are human or technical in nature. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, The Promoter is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due submissions or prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet Service Providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, or difficulties, printing errors, clerical, typographical or other errors in the offering or announcement of any prize or in any prize notification documents; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. The Promoter reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Game or the Website, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsman-like or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Game, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and The Promoter reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the player, any on-line registration will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the email account indicated during the registration process, provided such account holder must still meet the eligibility requirements for the Game. The authorized account holder shall be the natural person to whom the applicable email address has been assigned by the Internet access provider, service provider, or other online organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. A potential winner may be requested to provide the Promoter with proof that the potential winner is the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the winning entry. If a dispute cannot be resolved, the entry will be deemed ineligible. The Promoter reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Game if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Game is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond The Promoter's control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Game as contemplated herein. If the Game is terminated before the designated end date, The Promoter will (if possible) select winners based on the fastest times for completed courses as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued in accordance with law by a duly authorized representative of The Promoter. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
