Each Submission must be submitted as a separate entry.
By entering this promotion, you agree that you are giving Sega the right to exploit your Submission (or any assets thereof) on its website, social media platforms and/or any merchandise and agree to the terms of the contributor release in the Schedule.
(i) Sega reserves the right to discontinue this Promotion at any time and without notice following the conclusion and complete fulfilment of all prizes associated with any given (and then current) Promotion. The authorised account holder is the natural person who is assigned to the account and that is responsible for the email addresses associated with the account. Sega reserves the right to void entries, which in its sole determination, are irregular, incomplete, inaccurate, do not comply with these terms or have been generated with abusive and/or duplicitous intent including but not limited to false or multiple email addresses.
(ii) You acknowledge that Sega is not responsible for the operation of the Battlefy and Steam websites and services and your use of such services shall be at your own risk and in accordance with any terms and conditions required by Battlefy and Steam.

Further, no Contributor will be eligible to receive a prize unless Sega determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that such Contributor’s Submission has been or can be sufficiently cleared for legal purposes and such Contributor has complied with these terms.
(v) Past experience has shown a promotion such as this one may generate similar submissions which closely resemble concepts and ideas developed by Sega whether before, during or after the Promotion. Contributors may see a presentation that seemingly incorporates an idea or concept or includes materials similar to that contained in their Submission. Any similarity may be purely coincidental and is always unavoidable in light of the volume of ideas that Sega routinely considers in the course of its content development. Consequently, the Contributors agree that: (a) Sega may use any and all ideas, concepts, material and expression, in whole or in part, submitted or contained in a Submission, or other material you submit, and all copyrights and other intellectual property rights therein; and (b) all entries and entry materials (including, without limitation, the Submissions) become the property of Sega and will not be returned.

(vii) Sega is not responsible for any lost, late, delayed, misdirected, garbled, illegible, incorrect or inaccurate information or entries that are misdirected or misrouted as a result of interrupted or unavailable network connections or internet transmissions for any reason, or any failure of the website during the Promotion, or for any computer, phone, phone line hardware or software malfunction, failure or error of any kind, whether mechanical, human or electronic. Any attempt by a Contributor to interfere with the operations of this Promotion is a violation of criminal and civil laws; Sega reserves the right to seek damages from any such Contributor to the fullest extent permitted by law. If, for any reason, any Promotion is not capable of running as planned, including, without limitation, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorised intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Sega which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of the Promotion, Sega reserves the right at its sole discretion to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Promotion.
