COMPETITION DESCRIPTION: Each Blitz Battles challenge (each, a “Competition”) is a skill-based contest. The Competition begins and ends on the dates and times (the “Competition Period”) set forth on the “Overview” tab in the Blitz Battles section of the Blitz app (the “App”). Once you sign up, you can complete in-game objectives in the App to earn points to be ranked on a leaderboard. You may receive prizes based on your ranking on the leaderboard. Entry in the Competition does not constitute entry into any other promotion, contest or sweepstakes. By participating in the Competition, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Blitz App, Inc., 5340 Alla Road, Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90066 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE COMPETITION.
ELIGIBILITY: Open only to legal U.S. residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia and Canada who are thirteen (13) years old or older as of time of entry. Officers, directors, and employees of Sponsor and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, retailers, sales representatives, advertising and marketing agencies (all such individuals and entities referred to collectively, the “Competition Entities”), and each of their immediate family members and/or people living in the same household are NOT eligible to enter the Competition or win a prize. This Competition is void where prohibited.
HOW TO ENTER AND WIN: To enter, register for the Competition in the App and go to the “Objectives” tab within the App. Complete as many in-game objectives during the Competition Period to earn points (the “Submission”). Limit one (1) entry per person. There may be limitations on the number of games an entrant can play during the Competition Period and/or the number of games the earn an entrant points during the Competition Period. Check the “Overview” tab for applicable limitations. The eligible contestants with the most points at the end of the Competition Period will win the prizes.
GENERAL CONDITIONS OF ENTRY: All Submissions must occur during the Competition Period. You must have the App open and be signed in to your Blitz account while you are playing the game to be able to earn points. If the App is not open, or you are not signed in to your Blitz account, your in-game actions will not be recorded and cannot be added retroactively. In order to use the App, you must link your account to your Riot Games account.
Entry must be made by the entrant, only as described in these Official Rules. Sponsor shall have no liability for any Submission that is lost, intercepted or not received by the Sponsor. Entries made by any other individual or any entity, and/or originating at any other website or e-mail address, including but not limited to commercial sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering service websites, will be declared invalid and disqualified for this Competition. Tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Competition, including but not limited to the use of any device to automate the entry process, is prohibited and any entries deemed by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, to have been submitted in this manner will be void. In the event a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Competition Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Competition or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Competition. The Competition Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries.
Smurfing (i.e. playing on an alternate account of a lower rank) and other in-game cheating is not permitted. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual believed to have cheated. Any in-game overlay that calculates points on a real-time basis is approximate; your actual point total will be that displayed in the App. Points may take several minutes to be reflected in the App. If you skip your stats and the post-match screen within the App, it may take longer for your points to be reflected in the App.
PRIZES: See the “Rewards” tab in the App for prize details. Competitions may involve a prize partner or other brand partner (“Prize Partner”) who supplies prizes for a Competition, receives branding in connection with a Competition and/or receives certain aggregated and de-identified information about the Competition. For Competitions involving a Prize Partner, the Prize Partner will have no liability or responsibility for the Competition or the prize distribution but will be solely responsible for honoring any prize gift codes, coupons or vouchers. The Prize Partner is intended to be a third-party beneficiary of these Terms.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Gift cards are subject to the terms and conditions printed thereon and imposed by issuer. No cash alternative or substitution of prizes will be allowed, except Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to substitute prizes of comparable value if any prize listed is unavailable, in whole or in part, for any reason. Prizes will be awarded only if the potential prize winner fully complies with these Official Rules. All portions of the prize(s) are non-assignable and non-transferable. Any prizes pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Competition materials are for illustrative purposes only. All details and other restrictions of the prize(s) not specified in these Official Rules will be determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. 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. ALL PRIZES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SPONSOR HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL SUCH WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
WINNER SELECTION: At the end of the Competition Period, prize winners will be selected by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion based on the entrants’ ranking on the leaderboard. All results of the selection are final and binding, subject to these Official Rules. In the event a winning entry is discovered to be invalid for any reason whatsoever or the person who submitted the winning entry fails to comply with these Official Rules prior to delivery of the prize, the prize may be forfeited and awarded to an alternate winner. No more than the advertised number of prizes will be awarded.
NOTICE TO WINNERS: Attempts to notify potential winners will be made via email. Sponsor is not responsible for communication problems of any kind. Time is of the essence in awarding the prizes. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond within five (5) days of the first notification attempt (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner may forfeit any prize and an alternate winner may be selected.
FURTHER DOCUMENTATION AND PUBLICITY: Potential winners may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, "Prize Claim Documents"). If any potential winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days of prize notification (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), the winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected. As part of the Prize Claim Documents, a potential winner may also be required to execute a further right of publicity release to use the winner’s name and/or image, including, but not limited to, for advertising and promotional purposes, without further compensation.
DATES & DEADLINES/ANTICIPATED NUMBER OF ENTRANTS: Because of the unique nature and scope of the Competition, Sponsor reserves the right, in addition to those other rights reserved herein, to modify any date(s) or deadline(s) set forth in these Official Rules or otherwise governing the Competition. Sponsor cannot accurately predict the number of entrants who will participate in the Competition.
GENERAL LIABILITY RELEASE/FORCE MAJEURE: Entry in the Competition constitutes entrant’s permission for the Competition Entities to use entrant’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. Entrants agree that the Competition Entities (A) shall not be responsible or liable for, and are hereby released from, any and all costs, injuries, losses or damages of any kind, including, without limitation, death and bodily injury, due in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, to participation in the Competition or any Competition-related activity, or from entrants’ acceptance, receipt, possession and/or use or misuse of any prize, and (B) have not made 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 quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Sponsor assumes no responsibility for any damage to an entrant’s, or any other person’s, computer system which is occasioned by participating in the Competition, 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, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due 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, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. SPONSOR 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 COMPETITION, TO BE ACTING IN VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES, OR TO BE ACTING IN AN UNSPORTSMANLIKE OR DISRUPTIVE MANNER, OR WITH THE INTENT TO DISRUPT OR UNDERMINE THE LEGITIMATE OPERATION OF THE COMPETITION, OR TO ANNOY, ABUSE, THREATEN OR HARASS ANY OTHER PERSON, AND SPONSOR 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. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Competition if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Competition is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures, or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Competition as contemplated herein. In the event an insufficient number of eligible entries are received and/or Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Competition as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, including but not limited to fire, flood, natural or man-made epidemic of health of other means, earthquake, explosion, labor dispute or strike, act of God or public enemy, satellite or equipment failure, riot or civil disturbance, terrorist threat or activity, war (declared or undeclared) or any federal state or local government law, order, or regulation, public health crisis, order of any court or jurisdiction, or other cause not reasonably within Sponsor’s control (each a “Force Majeure” event or occurrence), then subject to any governmental approval which may be required, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, extend, or terminate the Competition. If the Competition is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select the winner(s) from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. Only the type and quantity of prizes described in these Official Rules will be awarded. 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 Sponsor. Unless otherwise stated in these Official Rules, the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. Unless otherwise stated in these Official Rules, in the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official 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. The Blitz App is compliant with Riot Games’ terms and conditions. In the event the Blitz App or the Competition conflict with or are found to be in violation of Riot Games’ terms and conditions or other rules, Blitz may alter, or terminate a Competition at any time.
GOVERNING LAW/JURISDICTION: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE COMPETITION SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS. FOR THE PURPOSES OF ANY DISPUTES HEREUNDER, BY ENTERING THIS COMPETITION, EACH ENTRANT AGREES THAT ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS COMPETITION SHALL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION AND, SUBJECT TO THE ARBITRATION PROVISION BELOW, CONSENTS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE APPROPRIATE STATE OR FEDERAL COURT SITUATED IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
ARBITRATION PROVISION: By participating in this Competition, entrant agrees that any and all controversies, claims, counterclaims or other disputes entrant may have with, or claims entrant may have against the Competition Entities relating to, arising out of or connected in any way with (a) the Competition, (b) the awarding or redemption of any prize, and/or (c) the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate (a “Claim”), will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Procedures of JAMS. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator's decision in any such arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties agree that the arbitration proceedings will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration proceedings, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration, by applicable disclosure rules and regulations of securities regulatory authorities or other governmental agencies, or as specifically permitted by state law. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement. However, the Arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Official Rules including, but not limited to, a claim that all or any part of these Official Rules is void or voidable. Arbitration will take place in Los Angeles, California or, if requested, some other location in the United States that is reasonably convenient to you.
If entrant demonstrates that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Sponsor will pay as much of the administrative costs and arbitrator’s fees required for the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the cost of the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the final award, the arbitrator may apportion the costs of arbitration and the compensation of the arbitrator among the parties in such amounts as the arbitrator deems appropriate.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude entrant from seeking action by federal, state, or local government agencies. Entrant and Sponsor also have the right to bring qualifying claims in small claims court. In addition, entrant and Sponsor retain the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for provisional relief, including pre-arbitral attachments or preliminary injunctions, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with these Official Rules, nor a waiver of the right to have disputes submitted to arbitration as provided in these Official Rules.
Neither entrant nor Sponsor may act as a class representative, nor participate as a member of a class of claimants, with respect to any Claim. Claims may not be arbitrated on a class or representative basis. The arbitrator can decide only Entrant and/or Sponsor’s individual Claims. The arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the arbitrator may award in the arbitration the same damages or other relief available under applicable law, including injunctive and declaratory relief (which may include public injunctive relief), as if the action were brought in court on an individual basis.
THIS SECTION LIMITS CERTAIN RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO MAINTAIN A COURT ACTION, THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY FORM OF CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE CLAIM, THE RIGHT TO ENGAGE IN DISCOVERY EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN AAA RULES, AND THE RIGHT TO CERTAIN REMEDIES AND FORMS OF RELIEF. OTHER RIGHTS THAT ENTRANT OR SPONSOR WOULD HAVE IN COURT ALSO MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION. If any provision of this Section is found to be invalid or unenforceable, then that specific provision shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed, but the remainder of this Section will continue in full force and effect. No waiver of any provision of this Section of these Official Rules will be effective or enforceable unless recorded in a writing signed by the party waiving such a right or requirement. Such a waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of these Official Rules. This Section of these Official Rules will survive the termination of your relationship with Sponsor.
