VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. PARTICIPATION IN THE CONTEST CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO AND ACCEPTANCE OF THE OFFICIAL RULES (“RULES”) BELOW. PARTICIPANTS MAY NEED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL KYC INFORMATION TO CLAIM THEIR COUPON CODES.
The purpose of this promotional contest is to launch our game Landrace with a large number of early adopters. By participating in this contest you agree that you are interested in testing our game when it initially launches. The rewards gained through this promotional contest will allow you to test the game at very low cost to yourself. By participating, you agree to periodic email communication from the sponsor of this contest.
All disputes will be resolved solely via binding arbitration.
SPONSOR. This contest is sponsored by FullMeta Corp. (“Sponsor”). References to Sponsor in this Agreement shall refer solely to the company sponsoring the contest and, its parent company, affiliates, subsidiaries and respective employees, officers and directors.
PARTICIPANT. A Participant in the Referral Contest promotional program is a person who opts in to the promotion by providing their email address. They may optionally refer friends and family to increase their rewards and move their name up the leaderboard.
With some exceptions, this Sponsor Referral Contest (the “Contest”) is open to any natural person worldwide who is at least the age of majority in their country and state of residence (which is eighteen (18) years of age in most US states, but 19 in Nebraska and Alabama and 21 in Mississippi). The Contest is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations. By participating in this contest you affirm you are eligible.
People residing in countries on the U.S. Department of the Treasury OFAC sanctions list including, but not limited to, Certain Balkan states, Belarus, Burma, Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, Lebanon, Libya, Sudan, Syria, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea may not participate and are not eligible.
Employees of Sponsor and other companies associated with the promotion of the Contest, and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates and advertising and promotion agencies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible.
Participation in the Contest constitutes your agreement to and acceptance of these Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding. Being granted a reward is contingent upon being and staying compliant with these Rules. Read them carefully.
The Contest begins on April 2, 2018 at 1:00am EST and ends on July 4, 2018 at 11:59pm EST (the “Contest Period”). Entries that are submitted before or after the Contest Period will be disqualified.
During the Contest Period, you will have the opportunity to generate a unique link to send to your family and friends (“Contacts”) that you would like to refer to the Sponsor. As more of your referred Contacts sign-up for the Contest, you receive greater Rewards.
In order to constitute a valid referral, your Contacts must:
Sign up for this referral promotion during the Contest Period;
Be a unique, natural person (a unique human being);
Use a valid email address to sign up;
Confirm their email address via double opt in (email challenge/response);
Not already have an account with the Sponsor
Each valid referral will be marked as a Point to your name in the Contest.
There is no limit to the number of referrals you may make per day for the duration of the Contest Period. All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Signups from Contacts deemed to be a strawman or automated false identity (bot) by our anti-fraud detection system will be marked as invalid and not count toward your reward points. Participants displaying a pattern of abuse may be banned altogether and lose the reward for their own individual sign up.
Reward calculations will be ongoing during the duration of the contest. On or about July 15, 2018, Sponsor will do a final tally the number of eligible referrals received through each referring party. The Landrace game is not expected to go live until at least Q4 2018 and a precise date for when codes may be redeemed cannot be given.
The individual unit of reward is a unique coupon code. There are two tiers of reward: Free Chicken Breeding Code and Free Gen 0 Chicken code.
The Referral Promotional Codes have no monetary value and are non-transferable. They are for the sole use of the Participant. We may expect you to lock them to a particular Ethereum address when you go through KYC to claim them. Each code is unique and only good for a single use. Users may win multiple codes for each reward tier by meeting the requirements of the refer-a-friend promotion for each reward tier.
Each unique breeding code will allow a participant to pick two Gen 0 chickens from the first 1000 chickens created (called “Founder Chickens”) and breed them without paying the breeding fee. The player will then receive the Gen 1 chicken born of the breeding. This will allow a new player to experience most of the game mechanics directly at a very low cost. The Participant will still need to pay for the gas necessary to run the breeding contract but there will be no fees otherwise.
Up to one thousand (1000) Gen 0 Chickens created after the Founder Chickens will be available as bonus for the top 1000 Participants in the Contest Leaderboard who make at least 12 referrals. The rewards for this level will be gifted as a unique code for claiming a Free Gen 0 Chicken. The Participant will still need to pay for the gas necessary to transfer the ownership of the chicken to themselves but there will be no fees otherwise.
The order in which Participants will be granted access to Founder Chickens for breeding will be based on their position on the leaderboard. The highest Participants on the Leaderboard will get access first. Participants at the bottom of the Leaderboard, for example, Participants with only a score of zero (no referrals), will be give access in the order in which they signed up to the Contest.
Founder Chickens will be more productive than a standard chicken but will still take time to recover after each breeding so popular Founder Chickens may be very busy making chicks!
All codes will expire 6 months after the public launch of the Landrace game.
For each Contact that becomes an eligible Entry, you will receive a code for one Gen 1 Chicken Breeding.
For each twelve (12) Contacts that become eligible Entries, you will receive a code good for one (1) Gen 0 Chicken, which will be drawn from the first 1000 chickens created after the Founder Chickens.
The more contacts you refer, the higher your name will be on the Leaderboard. When Landrace Launches, the names highest on the Leaderboard will be the first to get announcements to claim their codes. They will have their pick of the litter of the Founder Chickens for breeding. If the Participant has managed to win any Free Gen 0 Chicken Codes, they will have their pick of the Gen 0 Chickens in the order they appear on the leaderboard. The higher on the leaderboard, the earlier they will get their code and be notified they may pick a chicken.
This section is only applicable to referring parties that qualify for a Reward. Sponsor will attempt to notify the potential winner(s) via email at the time of the public launch of the Landrace game. If you are eligible for a Reward, you will be notified by email. You will be required to respond to us within seven (7) days of the date of notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim your Reward. If you cannot be contacted, or you fail to respond appropriately within the required time period, or the Reward is returned as undeliverable, you forfeit your Reward.
You may be required to complete additional KYC and sign a Declaration of Claim in order to accept your coupon codes.
Receiving a Reward Gift of any type is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements and compliance with these Rules. In the event that a Reward recipient is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor is not obliged to provide an alternate Reward, or extend the Contest Period in any way.
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Contest is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, technical problems, security malfunctions or in the event the Contest is unable to run as planned for any other reason, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (1) suspend the Contest to address the impairment and then resume in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Rules; or (2) terminate the Contest and, in the event of termination, no participant shall be eligible for a Reward of any type.
Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these Rules or in a disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to damage the website or undermine the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages (including attorneys fees) and any other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Failure by Sponsor to enforce any provision of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
Participating individuals have been advised of the existence of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code which provides:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE WHICH, IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER, MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
Notwithstanding Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, entry and participation in the Contest shall constitute a full release of liability in accordance with its terms. Each Participating party knowingly and voluntarily waives the provisions of Section 1542, as well as any other statute, law or rule of similar effect, and acknowledge and agree that this waiver is an essential and material term of these Rules and that without such waiver, Sponsor would not have accepted the entry.
By participating in the Contest, you agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, and each of its respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, other companies associated with the Contest, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, shareholders, representatives, and agents (together, “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Contest or receipt of a Reward, including, but not limited to: (a) any technical errors associated with the Contest, including lost, interrupted or unavailable Internet Service Provider (ISP), network, server, or wireless service provider; (b) unauthorized human intervention in the Contest; (c) mechanical human, printing or typographical errors; or (d) injury, death, losses or damages of any kind, to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from your participation in the Contest or acceptance, receipt or misuse of any Reward you may receive. You further agree that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Contest, and in no event shall the entrant be entitled to receive attorney’s fees. Released Parties are also not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by site users, tampering, hacking, or by any equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Contest.
These Rules shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of Utah, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules, which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than Utah. Except where prohibited, you agree that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Contest or any Reward awarded shall be resolved by binding arbitration, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in Utah. The parties agree to follow the arbitration procedures set forth by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) to resolve the dispute. Arbitration proceedings shall take place in the State of Utah. Each party is responsible for paying its own filing, administrative and arbitrator fees. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Prospective Participant should read the whole of this Disclaimer and should be aware that this project involves a certain degree of risk.
You should consider carefully the risks described below, together with all of the other information contained in on this website and White Paper before making a decision to participate. The following risks entail circumstances under which our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects could suffer.
The Company may not successfully develop, market and launch the game and participants may not receive a chicken or any other digital good.
The game Platform has not yet been developed by the Company and will require significant capital funding, expertise of the Company’s management, time and effort in order to develop and successfully launch the Platform. The Company may have to make changes to the specifications of the Platform or Tokens for any number of legitimate reasons or the Company may be unable to develop the Platform in a way that realizes those specifications or any form of a functioning network. It is possible that the Tokens and the Platform may not ever be released and there may never be an operational Token or that the Network Launch will not occur. The Platform or Tokens, if successfully developed and maintained, may not meet player expectations at the time of launch. Furthermore, despite good faith efforts to develop and launch the Platform and subsequently to develop and maintain the Platform, it is still possible that the Platform will experience malfunctions or otherwise fail to be adequately developed or maintained, which may negatively impact the Platform and Tokens.
The Company will use the contacts collected during this campaign to help launch a viable Platform and subsequently to build a fulsome network upon which users can realize utility and value. The Company may not have or may not be able to obtain the technical skills and expertise needed to successfully develop the Platform and progress it to a successful Network Launch. While the Company has sought to retain and continue to competitively recruit experts, there is a general scarcity of management, technical, scientific, research and marketing personnel with appropriate training to develop and maintain the Tokens and the Platform. If the Company is not successful in its efforts to demonstrate to users the utility and value of the Platform, there may not be sufficient demand for the Tokens for the Company to proceed with the Platform Launch.
It is possible that, due to any number of reasons, including, but not limited to, an unfavorable fluctuation in the value of cryptographic and fiat currencies, the inability by the Company to establish the Platform or the Tokens’ utility, the failure of commercial relationships, or intellectual property ownership challenges, the Company may no longer be viable to operate and the Company may dissolve or take actions that result in a Dissolution Event.
The Platform may not be widely adopted and may have limited users.
It is possible that the Platform will not be used by a large number of individuals, companies and other entities or that there will be limited public interest in the creation and development of distributed ecosystems (such as the Platform) more generally or distributed applications to be used on the Platform. Such a lack of use or interest could negatively impact the development of the Platform and therefore the potential utility of Tokens.
Alternative networks may be established that compete with or are more widely used than the Platform.
It is possible that alternative networks could be established that utilize the same or similar protocol underlying the Platform and attempt to facilitate services that are materially similar to the Platform’s services. The Platform may compete with these alternative networks, which could negatively impact the Platform and the Tokens.
The Platform may be the target of malicious cyberattacks or may contain exploitable flaws in the underlying code, which may result in security breaches and the loss or theft of Tokens. If the Platform’s security is compromised or if the Platform is subjected to attacks that frustrate or thwart our users’ ability to access the Platform, their Tokens or the Platform products and services, users may but back on or stop using the Platform altogether, which could seriously curtail the utilization of the Tokens.
The Platform is in development and still unproven, and there can be assurances that the Platform and the creation, transfer or storage of the Tokens will be uninterrupted or fully secure which may result in a complete loss of user’s Tokens or an unwillingness of users to access, adopt and utilize the Platform. Further the Platform may also be the target of malicious attacks seeking to identify and exploit weaknesses in the software or the Platform which may result in the loss or theft of Tokens.
The regulatory regime governing the blockchain technologies, cryptocurrencies, tokens and such as the Platform and the Tokens is uncertain, and new regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the development of the Platform and the utility of the Tokens.
Regulation of tokens and cryptocurrencies, blockchain technologies, and cryptocurrency exchanges currently is undeveloped and likely to rapidly evolve, varies significantly among international, federal, state and local jurisdictions and is subject to significant uncertainty. Various legislative and executive bodies in the U.S. and in other countries may in the future adopt laws, regulations, guidance or other actions, which may severely impact the development and growth of the Platform and the adoption and utility of the Tokens. Failure by the Company or certain users of the Platform to comply with any laws, rules and regulations, some of which may not exist yet or are subject to interpretations and may be subject to change, could result in a variety of adverse consequences, including civil penalties and fines.
As blockchain networks and blockchain assets have grown in popularity and in market size, federal and state agencies have begun to take interest in, and in some cases regulate, their use and operation. The regulation of non-currency use of blockchain assets is also uncertain. The CFTC has publically taken the position that certain blockchain assets are commodities, and the SEC has issued a public report stating federal securities laws require treating some blockchain assets as securities. To the extent that a domestic government or quasi-governmental agency exerts regulatory authority over a blockchain network or asset, the Platform and the Tokens may be materially and adversely affected.
Blockchain networks also face an uncertain regulatory landscape in many foreign jurisdictions such the European Union, China and Russia. Various foreign jurisdictions may, in the near future, adopt laws, regulations or directives that affect the Platform. Such laws regulations or directives may conflicts with those of the U.S. or may directly and negatively impact our business. The effect of any future regulatory change is impossible to predict, but such change could be substantial and materially adverse to the development and growth of the Platform and the adoption and utility of the Tokens.
New or changing laws and regulations or interpretations of existing laws and regulations, in the U.S. and other jurisdictions, may materially and adversely impact the utility of the Platform, the ability to access marketplaces or exchanges on which to trade the Tokens, and the structure, rights and transferability of the Tokens.
