5. How to Play : The Contest begins on July 24, 2018 at 7:00 AM UTC and ends on November 6, 2018 at 7:00 AM UTC (“Contest Period”). Sponsor’s computer is the official clock for this Contest. Navigate the internet to https://www.ioi.dk/ioi-account/ and register for an IOI account by following the instructions on the registration page and completing the registration form. To enter, pre-order the HITMAN 2 video game and download for free ”HITMAN: Sniper Assassin” from your online gaming provider (i.e., either STEAM, Sony Interactive Entertainment America, LLC, Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe, LLC or Microsoft Corporation). Once downloaded, visit and play “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin” — a skill-based game where the player must find and “kill” as many targets as possible during a fifteen (15) minute session, with some of the targets being hidden. To participate in the Contest and earn points you MUST play “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin” in SOLO mode. Points are awarded for “killing” targets as well as for concealing the “killings” of targets. Your point total will be posted to the LEADERBOARD (as described below). You may play “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin” (compete in the Challenge) as often as you like during the Contest Period. In participating in the Contest, you must at all times comply with the terms and conditions of use/community guidelines of your online gaming provider as well as the instructions on how to play “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin,” both of which are made a part of these Official Rules and incorporated herein by reference. In the event of dispute, these Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control in all respects with the sole exception of the instructions on how to play “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin” which will instead prevail, govern and control solely with respect to playing and scoring points in “HITMAN: Sniper Assassin.”
6. Leaderboard : The LEADERBOARD posted on each online gaming platform (i.e. STEAM, PSN and Xbox Live) is intended to reflect the point totals of highest ranked players/entrants as well as a player's/entrant's individual point total and highest ranking achieved during the Contest Period. Every reasonable effort will be made by Sponsor/Administrator to maintain and accurately reflect the point totals that entrants have earned as well as their rankings as compared to other entrants. However, Sponsor and its agencies (including Administrator) shall not be responsible for technical errors of any kind which may cause inaccurate or incomplete information to be reflected on LEADERBOARD at any given time. Sponsor/Administrator may update the LEADERBOARD at time(s) of its sole choosing and Sponsor/Administrator may correct erroneous listings on LEADERBOARD at any time in its sole discretion without liability of any kind. Notwithstanding listings on LEADERBOARD, a person is not a potential prize winner unless and until he/she is notified personally by Sponsor or its agency to such effect (see Rule 8 below). Entrants should maintain their own records of their participation in the Contest. For the avoidance of doubt, other LEADERBOARDS not published/disseminated by Sponsor (e.g., any leaderboard available via an online gaming platform) are not in any way sanctioned by or binding upon Sponsor and will NOT be recognized as proof of an entrant's performance in the Contest.
7. Winners Determination : On November 7, 2018, Administrator and at least one (1) independent member (whose name will be made available upon request) will verify the accuracy of all eligible entrants' point totals during the Contest Period and check for compliance with these Official Rules. At the end of the Contest Period, the entrant with the highest point total for each online gaming platform (i.e. PC, PSN and Xbox Live) will be deemed the potential winner of the respective Grand Prize. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined based on the first entrant to reach the highest point total from among all tied entrants. Potential Grand Prize winners will be confirmed between November 18 -20, 2018 by Administrator whose decisions (along with those of Sponsor) are final and binding on all matters related to the Contest. The verification and confirmation of the Grand Prize winners will take place at Administrator’s offices in New York, NY USA.
8. Winners Notification & Verification: Potential Grand Prize winners will be notified by e-mail and/or phone using the contact information used by entrant to register his/her IOI account, as stipulated in the Contest entry requirements. Failure to respond to the initial verification e-mail and/or phone call within ten (10) business days after notification or return of e-mail notification as undeliverable after two (2) attempts will result in disqualification. (Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor and Administrator expressly disclaim any and all liability if potential winner’s IOI account information is out-of-date, incomplete or otherwise inaccurate.) Potential Grand Prize winners will be required to sign and return within ten (10) business days of notification a written affirmation of Eligibility, Release and Indemnification, a Publicity Release, as well as any other documents Sponsor may require (collectively, “Winner Documents”). If the Winner Documents are not returned to Sponsor/Administrator within the specified time period (should the signing of such documents be required), the potential Grand Prize winner may be disqualified. If the potential Grand Prize winner is disqualified for any reason, potential Grand Prize winner’s prize will be forfeited without compensation of any kind and will be awarded to the participant with the next highest point total for the respective online gaming platform, as per Rule 7.
Grand Prize (three (3) winners, one (1) per online gaming platform): Each Grand Prize winner will receive a digital rendering of winner (via electronic file) that will be included in future post launch HITMAN content. Grand Prize has no retail value.
10. Prize Restrictions: Sponsor makes no representation, warranty or guarantee of any kind that the digital rendering of winner will appear in HITMAN 2 video game and its failure to do so for any reason will not result in any liability to Sponsor under any legal theory.
Prize Provider shall own any and all rights to the digital rendering of winner (including any draft versions of same). Without limiting the foregoing, Sponsor and Prize Provider shall determine whether (or not) the digital rendering of winner will appear in HITMAN 2 video game; as well as the subject matter and context of such use of the digital rendering of winner in the video game. Should Sponsor or Prize Provider decide to proceed in using the digital rendering of winner in the HITMAN 2 video game, Sponsor and Prize Provider shall control any and all aspects of the production, distribution, marketing, advertising and sale of the video game, the number of units of the video game to be created, as well as the territory and duration of such sales of the video game. (Without limiting the foregoing, sale of the video game in winner’s country of residence is not guaranteed.) Relative to Sponsor’s and Prize Provider’s use (if any) of the digital rendering of winner, winner further (a) waives any “Moral Right of Authors” (Droit Moral) or natural rights of any kind that he/she may have in same, including explicitly his/her ‘portretrecht’ as meant in the Dutch Copyright Act (Auteurswet) and, for Australian residents only, any moral rights under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth), to the extent permitted by applicable laws; (b) agrees, upon Sponsor’s request and without compensation, to sign any and all necessary and appropriate documents so as to effect, perfect or record the preceding grant of ownership rights in the digital rendering of winner (including as used in the video game, if and as applicable); (c) agrees to cooperate fully upon Sponsor’s and Prize Provider’s request with production personnel relative to creation of the digital rendering of winner and the video game (if and as applicable); (d) acknowledges that the digital rendering of winner is in the way of a caricature created at discretion of the Sponsor and Prize Provider which may accentuate certain of winner’s characteristics/features/traits and therefore may be unflattering, insulting or otherwise objectionable to winner (and, if applicable, the character corresponding to the digital rendering of winner may engage in actions/omissions from action that the winner may perceive as being defamatory, libelous, otherwise objectionable or not in accord with the winner’s character and/or values); (e) if applicable, acknowledges that the name of the character corresponding to the digital rendering of winner may be unflattering, insulting or otherwise objectionable to winner or, alternatively, may be or include the winner’s actual, given name; (f) if applicable, acknowledges that Sponsor and Prize Provider will determine whether (or not) to attribute the digital rendering of winner to winner in the credits or otherwise in the video game and, should Sponsor and Prize Provider elect to do so, Sponsor and Prize Provider shall determine in its sole discretion the content, duration and all other aspects of such attribution; (g) acknowledges that he/she shall not have any right of review or approval of the digital rendering of winner or of the video game including same (if and as applicable); (h) confirms hereby that any materials and information provided by winner for the digital rendering of winner, including names, pictures, photos etc., are connected solely with the winner and do not violate the rights of any third parties, and (i) winner shall grant to Sponsor and Prize Provider an non-exclusive, worldwide, sublicensable, gratuitous, and irrevocable license to copy, modify, produce, reproduce, display, publish, exhibit, distribute, convert, adapt, post, serve, broadcast, communicate by telecommunication, transmit, and otherwise use or reuse his name, photos, and/or likenesses, for use in any and all media now known or hereafter developed in perpetuity beginning on the date of signing the written affirmation of Eligibility, without or without attribution, including, but not limited to, in connection with the HITMAN 2 video game. Winner further acknowledges that, relative to any such use of the digital rendering of winner, he/she will not receive any royalty, payment or compensation and that the award of the Grand Prize and/or use of the digital rendering of winner does NOT constitute an offer of employment by Sponsor or Prize Provider to winner under any legal theory.
