4. HOW TO PLAY.
A. Online Game Registration Information: To participate in the Online Game, including the Online Sweepstakes, an individual who is a resident of the Territory and thirteen (13) years of age or older must first complete the online registration (“Online Registration”).
(i) To register, simply access the Official Website (www.PlayatMcD.com) by using a computer or by using the browser of an Internet-enabled phone, smartphone, tablet or pad (collectively “Digital Device(s)”), see Rule 12 for Digital Device Requirements. For Digital Device use, Message & Data Rates May Apply (consult your service provider). Puerto Rico Participants can also access the link to the Official Website at www.mcdonalds.com.pr.
(ii) Registration Codes: When registering for the Online Game, enter FREE Code “PLAYYOURMCD” or a Game Code or other FREE Code. The Game Code or FREE Code must be typed into the code input field exactly as it appears or it will not be accepted.
(v) Online Registration Security: Once registered, simply enter your email address and password each time you return to the Official Website to participate. An Online Participant is solely responsible for the security of their email address and password and should take precautions to keep the password private to prevent unauthorized use. Neither Sponsor nor any other person or entity will be responsible for any losses, damages, or consequences an Online Participant may suffer due to careless or unauthorized use of a password. An account page (“My Account”) will be created for each Online Participant, which will contain information about an Online Participant’s Online Game Plays, for example, the Game Codes that the Online Participant has played and the prizes they have potentially won (subject to verification and compliance with the Official Rules). An Online Participant can access their My Account by clicking on the sign in link on the Official Website landing page and inputting their email address and password. While reasonable efforts will be made to record, maintain and keep current the information in an Online Participant’s My Account, due to technical or other errors or failures, the information may not always be current and accurate and Sponsor will not assume responsibility or liability for any such information.
(vi) Online Registration Limit: There is a limit of one (1) Online Registration per Online Participant. Any Online Participant who attempts to secure more than one (1) Online Registration by using different names, addresses, email addresses or Digital Device phone numbers, or who uses any device or artifice to circumvent these Official Rules will be disqualified and ALL of their Online Game Plays, including potential and winning plays, will be forfeited, and any such person, without notification, may be prevented from playing the Game and/or winning prizes.
B. In-Store Game: Obtain a Game Piece and carefully peel each Game Stamp from its backing, or from the specially marked packaging (see Rule 3A) to which it is affixed, to determine if it is an “Instant Win Game Stamp” (see Rule 4B(i) below) or part of a potential Winning Combination (see Rule 4B(ii)).
(i) Instant Win: If a Game Stamp reveals a prize identified in these Official Rules (see Rule 5B) as an Instant Win prize (each an “Instant Win Game Stamp”), then the Participant, when verified, is the winner of that prize.
(ii) Collect & Win: If a Game Stamp reveals a MONOPOLY property (each, a “Collect & Win Game Stamp”), Participant must collect and combine all of the original Collect & Win Game Stamps of the same property set necessary to form a winning combination (“Winning Combination”). The property name and stamp number of the Collect & Win Game Stamps that must be collected in order to form a Winning Combination can be found on the Game Board, on individual Collect & Win Game Stamps and in Rule 5C. If a Participant collects a Winning Combination, such Participant, when verified, is the winner of the corresponding prize. Sponsor will not honor and is not responsible for Game Stamp combinations that are incomplete or include copies of any Game Stamps.
C. Online Game: Online Participants will need Internet access, a valid email address and a valid Game Code to play the Online Game at the Official Website (www.PlayatMcD.com). Each Collect & Win Game Stamp and Food Prize Game Stamp contains a unique Game Code that is valid for one (1) Online Game play (“Online Game Play”). Note: codes found on Instant Win Game Stamps (except those Game Codes found on Food Prize Game Stamps) are for prize claims, and are not valid for Online Game Play or Online Sweepstakes entry at the Official Website. Online Participants must first register (see Rule 4A). If an Online Participant is already registered, they need only enter a valid Game Code, email address and password each time they return to the Official Website to receive one (1) Online Game Play. To play for a chance to win an Online Game prize, click on “play”. If the Online Game Play results in a win, you will be the potential instant winner (pending verification) of the prize shown, and you will receive a confirmation email (sent to the email address you provided in your Online Registration information), with instructions on how to claim the prize. The email message will also be available in your My Account. If you are not a winner, you will see a message confirming that you have received one (1) entry into the Online Sweepstakes for the chance to win a new 2013 FIAT® 500 Cabrio. (Each FIAT model offered as a prize will be referred to as a “Vehicle”). To continue playing the Online Game, click on “enter another code”.
Note: If a power loss or a computer-related interruption occurs while an Online Participant is signed in, and after a Game Code has been entered, it is possible that the Game Code may not be lost. When power is restored or the interruption corrected, sign into the Official Website and try to re-enter the Game Code to determine if the Game Code was accepted by the Game Computer before the interruption occurred. If the Game Computer accepts the Game Code, the Online Participant must click on “play” to receive an Online Game Play. If the Game Computer does not accept the Game Code, an on-screen message will indicate that the Game Code is invalid and cannot be used in the Online Game. The Online Participant will then need to enter another valid Game Code to receive an Online Game Play. Sponsor is not responsible for any Game Codes that may be lost due to power loss or computer-related interruption of an Online Game Play.
D. Online Sweepstakes: Each valid Game Code (or FREE Code) will provide you with one (1) Online Sweepstakes entry for the chance to win a new 2013 FIAT 500 Cabrio. A total of all of a Participant’s Online Sweepstakes entries can be found in an Online Participant’s My Account.
E. Online Sweepstakes Drawing: On or about September 4, 2013, one (1) potential winner will be selected in a random prize drawing, conducted by an independent organization selected by Sponsor, from among all eligible entries received for the Online Sweepstakes drawing. The potential winner will be contacted by telephone and/or email and/or a traceable method of mail within two (2) business Days after the drawing, and the potential winner will be sent Prize Claim Documents that must be completed and returned (see Rule 8E) within five (5) business Days, or said potential winner may be disqualified, forfeit the prize, and an alternate winner will be selected (see Rule 9A). The odds of winning the Online Sweepstakes depend on the number of eligible entries received.
F. Online Game Play Conditions/Online Limitations: There is a limit of ten (10) Online Game Plays per Online Participant per Day. This limit does not include FREE Codes.
