Employees, contractors, directors and officers of Concept and Innovation Group, LLC ("Sponsor"), its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies, and the web design, advertising, fulfillment, content approving and promotion agencies involved in the administration, development, fulfillment and execution of this Promotion (collectively, "Promotion Parties"), and the immediate family members of each such person (spouse, parent, child, sibling, grandparent, and spouse of "step" of each) and those living in the same household of each such person (those persons whether related or not who live in the same residence for at least three months during the twelve-month period preceding the start date of the Promotion) are not eligible to enter or win.
2. PROMOTION ENTRY PERIODS
Every competition that is offered will run as its own separate Promotion, and there will always be one live competition ongoing. The Promotion Period (the “game”) begins when the previous game is concluded. First, each game will remain live until a designated amount of game "plays" are met. Then, a time-based period (e.g. 3 days) will start to count down for the game to be finished. All aspects of the game are specified in real-time on the first screen of each game level (the “Begin Screen”), which is displayed inside the game on the mobile app. These aspects include the number of plays needed to be met for the countdown to begin, the active number of plays for the game, and the time remaining in the game after the countdown is activated. There may be any number of prizes for each game, which are displayed on the Begin Screen. The time scores on the last level of the game (Level 15 – the “competition level”) are deemed the scores recorded for each competition. The server hosting the Promotion Website is the official clock for these Promotions.
After the end of every game, the leaderboard will be posted on the Website at www.consumerbreak.com/leaderboards. Your name that you have saved in the App Menu (found at the top right of the Begin Screens) will be displayed on the leaderboards. Your email that you have saved in the App Menu will be used to contact you if you win a prize. If you do not save a name or email into the App Menu, your name and email that are retrieved from your Facebook account will be used.
3. HOW TO PLAY
Download the free "ConsumerBreak" mobile application from the App Store, and follow the on-screen directions to register for the Promotion by signing in with a valid Facebook account. After logging in, you may instantly begin playing and your level will be saved where you leave off.
To play you must have Internet access and a valid Facebook account. Automated methods of participation are prohibited and any use of automated devices will cause disqualification, termination, and possible legal action. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the participant, the natural person associated with the Facebook account provided at the time of registration will be considered the participant. Participants may not register multiple times with multiple Facebook accounts, nor may participants use any other device or artifice to register multiple times. Any participant who attempts to log in with multiple Facebook accounts or uses any device or artifice to register multiple times will be disqualified and forfeits any and all prizes won, and may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, in Sponsor's sole discretion. By participating, you agree to abide by and be bound by these Official Rules.
The play rules are as follows:
You will be given 15 puzzles (“Levels”) to complete. Each level may present a different puzzle image, and will have its own set of social media tools and website displayed at the Begin Screen and end of the level. To enter your “Play” for the game, you will first have to complete Levels 1-14 by outscoring the timer for each level, and then take as long as you need to finish Level 15. The time you spent solving the puzzle of Level 15 (your “time score”) will be recorded for the game and compared with all other players in the game. You will then have the option to play Level 15 again for a total of 10 attempts to try to get your best time score for the game. The image will stay the same, but the puzzle piece pattern will be different for every attempt.
The Begin Screen of every level shows information about the game, and a “Begin” button to start the level when you are ready. Once starting any level, the 4 corner pieces of the image will be displayed on the screen. You must reassemble the rest of the “broken” pieces as quickly as you can. A puzzle piece will be presented in the middle of the screen for you to drag to the correct spot. You may rotate the piece in 90° intervals by tapping on it. Once the piece is placed in the correct location and at the correct rotation, a new piece will be presented. You may also tap on the "Pass" button to skip the piece in play to be cycled around later. To view the full image at any time for reference, hold down the “Hold to view image” button. For Levels 1-14, the timer will be paused when you view the image. For Level 15, the timer will continue running while you view the image.
The level is completed when you have assembled all of the puzzle pieces before the level's timer runs out. When the image is fully put back together, tap anywhere to break it apart and continue to the next level. If you don’t assemble the pieces in time, the level will be restarted. Levels will become more difficult as they progress. If you leave the app, your current level will be saved for future play. There is no limit to the number of attempts for all of the levels except for Level 15. When you get to Level 15, the timer will start at 0.00 Seconds and count up. You must complete this level to have your time score recorded for the game (a "Play"). You can then swipe left and right on Begin Screens to play any level again. Limit ten (10) attempts on Level 15 per person per game. If you start Level 15 and leave the app, you will forfeit that attempt. Your fastest time score on Level 15 out of all attempts at the end of the game will be deemed your Time Score for the game. The Begin Screen will display your current best time score for all levels.
Prizes will be cash of any monetary amount or products of any value. Winners may comprise of the top scores (e.g. top 25% of the leaderboard), or random pick drawings (random person that completed all 15 levels). The details of the prizes for the current game are specified on the Begin Screen of every level, as well as the Sponsor Website at www.consumerbreak.com/prizes. A list of all previous prizes and winners is also posted at www.consumerbreak.com/prizes
