You can redeem your Points from time to time for various “Awards” as set forth below. These Terms and Conditions govern the Program along with any other terms or policies incorporated by reference into these Terms and Conditions.

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before participating in the Program. Your participation in the Program indicates that you have read, understood, and unconditionally consent and agree to these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, you may not participate in the Program. The Program is only for your own personal use. Members may not use the Program for commercial purposes, or in any way that harms Bethesda or any other person or entity, as determined by Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion.
2.1 The Program is open only to Bethesda.net account holders who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland the Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, and who register to participate in the Program.

To participate in the Program, go to https://slayersclub.bethesda.net/en/entitlement, submit the information requested on the registration page and confirm your agreement to these Terms and Conditions. Once you complete and submit all of the registration information, a Program account (each, an “Account”) will be created for you and linked to your existing Bethesda.net account. If you do not have a Bethesda.net account, you can create one for free at: https://bethesda.net. All registration information must be completed in full. Accounts can only be used by the Member whose name is listed on the Account. You should not give your password to any other person. You are responsible for all activity in your Account and any use of your password. Limit one (1) Account per person. You cannot have more than one Account. Bethesda may, at any time, require you to verify your name and address by means of faxing or mailing to Bethesda a copy of your driver's license, passport, or other form of identification approved by Bethesda, in addition to providing Bethesda with a signed statement of legitimacy; and Bethesda may automatically require such verification in the case of multiple accounts from the same address, household, computer or IP address.

Earning Points by interacting with content may be subject to certain additional limitations or restrictions that could limit the number of times a Member is permitted to earn points by interacting with certain content, which limitations or restrictions will be specified by Bethesda.
4. POINTS REDEMPTION.
A. Eligibility Restrictions: NOT ALL MEMBERS ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN SWEEPSTAKES. Only legal residents of the following jurisdictions, who are at least 18 years of age or older or the age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, whichever is older, are eligible to participate in sweepstakes offered in connection with the Program, if any: fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, Canada, excluding residents of the province of Quebec, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Russian Federation, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Residents of the Netherlands are only eligible to win up to €100,000 in prizes per calendar year; once this threshold is met, residents of the Netherlands will not be eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes. Additional eligibility restrictions may apply. See official rules for each sweepstakes offered in connection with the Program, if any. RESIDENTS OF AUSTRALIA, AUSTRIA, BRAZIL, ITALY, POLAND, QUEBEC (CANADA) AND SPAIN ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN SWEEPSTAKES.
B. Sweepstakes: From time to time, the Program may invite eligible Members to enter into a sweepstakes (each, a “Sweepstakes”). General information about each Sweepstakes and any specific rules (the “Official Rules”) that apply to such Sweepstakes will be communicated via Bethesda.net or a website or social networking page established to promote and administer the Sweepstakes (each referred to herein, solely for ease of reference, as a “Promotional Website”). The Official Rules will specify the beginning and end dates of each Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes Period”). To participate, eligible Members must opt in to each Sweepstakes by clicking the red button that says “Enter this Giveaway” on the Promotional Website. If you do not opt in, you will not be entered in the Sweepstakes. At the end of each Sweepstakes Period, the points earned by each eligible Member that has opted in to the Sweepstakes will be automatically redeemed for sweepstakes entries (“Sweepstakes Entries”) in accordance with the Official Rules applicable to the particular Sweepstakes. Eligible Members will receive one (1) Sweepstakes Entry for every twenty (20) Points that an eligible Member earns through the Program during the particular Sweepstakes Period for which the member has opted in. At the end of the Sweepstakes Period, the Points that you earned during the Sweepstakes Period will be automatically added together and participants will be given the number of Entries that corresponds to the total number of Points earned during the Sweepstakes Period divisible by twenty (20); any additional Points that are not divisible by twenty will not be counted towards Entries into the Sweepstakes and remaining points will not be rounded up. Please refer to the Official Rules for each Sweepstakes conducted in connection with the Program for Sweepstakes Period, eligibility restrictions, prize information, and other terms and conditions. The Official Rules for each Sweepstakes are hereby incorporated into these Terms and Conditions by this reference.
4.2 GAMIFICATION: The lifetime total number of Points earned by each Member during the term of the Program will be calculated to provide members with in-game reward codes (“Codes”) based on meeting a stated minimum threshold number of points. Members will be automatically notified when they have reached the threshold level of points to advance to the next level or when they are eligible to receive Codes. Redemption of Codes requires purchase of DOOM® Eternal. The lifetime total of points will not be depleted by participating in monthly Sweepstakes, if the Member is eligible to participate in Sweepstakes. “Awards” means Sweepstakes Entries (for eligible Members only) and Codes, collectively. Codes and any goods that can be obtained through their redemption have no retail value.
4.3 Points will expire if not used by the Termination Date as defined below. You may view your current earned Points and their expiration date by logging onto your Account. The expiration date for Points will be disclosed when the Points earning opportunity is presented. Bethesda, in its sole reasonable discretion, may impose a limit on the number of Awards in the aggregate or by type that may redeemed per Account, per day, per Award or per any other generally-applicable metric that may be selected by Bethesda from time to time in its sole reasonable discretion.
4.4 Awards are subject to availability as determined by Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion. Bethesda reserves the right to modify, amend or revise the Awards available. Members may not rely on continued Award availability. The number of Points required to redeem any Award may be substantially increased, any Award may be withdrawn, and restrictions on any Award or its redemption may be imposed by Bethesda or its designee or the third party business partner supplying the Award. Awards are non-assignable and non-transferable and may not be bartered or sold. Any Awards assigned, transferred, bartered or sold in violation of these Terms and Conditions may be confiscated or cancelled. Bethesda reserves the right to substitute Awards of comparable or greater value if any redeemed Award becomes unavailable for any reason.
4.5 All details and restrictions of the Awards not specified at the time the redemption opportunity is presented will be determined by Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion. Members shall be solely responsible for all federal, state/provincial, and/or local taxes including, without limitation, income taxes and any reporting consequences thereof in connection with an Award. Winners are also responsible for reporting any winnings to their tax authorities, where required by applicable law. If required by law, as determined by Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion, Bethesda reserves the right to withhold and remit to the appropriate taxing authorities the amount of any taxes due.
4.6 Points have no cash value and may not be redeemed for cash and may not be sold, auctioned, bartered, brokered, purchased, transferred, assigned or used to engage in any gambling activity. Any Points obtained in this manner by any person or entity will be considered to have been fraudulently obtained and deemed void and such Points may be confiscated or cancelled. Points must be redeemed in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Points will not be replaced, reissued or credited if lost, stolen or otherwise altered or destroyed. If the Program includes tiers that provide the Member with benefits based on meeting a stated minimum threshold number of Points (each such tier, if any, referred to as “Points Level”), you should know that Points Levels are subject to change. Bethesda, in its reasonable discretion and without notice to you, reserves the right to change, modify, withdraw or cancel any Points Level. Bethesda also reserves the right, in its sole reasonable discretion, to determine and modify, at any time, the value of Points and the number of Points that may be earned for any given activity. Points cannot be used in combination with any other discount, coupon or offer unless specifically allowed by the terms of a specific promotion. Once you have redeemed your Points, they are gone and there are no refunds, returns or exchanges for additional Points, cash, or other goods and services, even if you return the merchandise or other item(s) that your Points were redeemed toward.
5. MODIFICATION AND TERMINATION.
5.1 Bethesda may modify any of these Terms and Conditions, including, but not limited to, the methods through which Points can be earned, how Points can be used, the types or “classes” of Points available, and the conditions under which Points may expire or be forfeited, at any time, with or without notice, even though these changes may affect a Member's ability to use the Points that he/she has already earned.
5.2 The Program will begin on April 1, 2019 and will continue until Bethesda terminates the Program (the “Termination Date”). Bethesda may, in its reasonable discretion, modify or terminate the Program prior to the Termination Date, in whole or in part, at any time and for any reason or no reason at all, with notice on the Website and/or via email to the Member's email address currently on file with Bethesda for their Account.
5.3 If Bethesda amends these Terms and Conditions, it will revise the “last updated” date located at the top of these Terms and Conditions. For changes to these Terms and Conditions that Bethesda considers to be material, Bethesda will place a notice on the Website by revising the link on the home page to read substantially as “Updated Program Terms and Conditions” for an amount of time that we determine in our discretion. If you continue to participate in the Program by earning Points, redeeming Points, logging onto your Account or in any other way after these Terms and Conditions have been changed, you will be deemed to have read, understood and unconditionally consented to and agreed to such changes. The most current version of these Terms and Conditions will be available on the Website and will supersede all previous versions of these Terms and Conditions.
5.4 If Bethesda decides in its sole reasonable discretion to discontinue the Program prior to the Termination Date, Members will have approximately thirty (30) days or an amount of time deemed reasonable by Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion from the date Program termination is announced to redeem their remaining Points. Redemption of any remaining Points will be on a first come, first serve basis and otherwise subject to the availability of Awards. Members may not rely on continued Award availability. Bethesda makes no representation or warranty about the number or type of Awards that may be available after Program termination has been announced, and many Awards that may have been available prior to termination will quickly become depleted or otherwise unavailable once the Program termination has been announce. Any Points remaining in a Member's Account at the time of termination will be forfeited and no compensation will be provided. Bethesda may cancel your membership, cancel accumulated Points, alter the number of Points in your Account or suspend your membership privileges at any time with immediate effect if Bethesda determines in its sole reasonable discretion that you (a) have acted in a manner inconsistent with applicable laws or ordinances; (b) acted in a fraudulent or abusive manner; (c) breached any of these Terms and Conditions; (d) engaged in any fraud or abuse concerning Points, Points usage or Points redemption; or (e) engaged in any conduct or act that causes Bethesda to terminate or suspend your access to the Website. Bethesda may also take appropriate administrative or legal action if any of the items listed above occurs. Nothing contained in these Terms and Conditions shall limit Bethesda in its exercise of any legal or equitable rights or remedies. In the event of modification of the Program, Members are permitted to withdraw from the Program.
5.5 Bethesda reserves the right to terminate the membership of any Member whose Account becomes dormant. Bethesda will attempt to contact the Member before terminating the account using the email address provided at the time of sign up. An Account will be considered dormant if the Account holder fails to log onto his or her Account for six (6) months or with such regularity deemed sufficient by Bethesda and announced from time to time on the Website. Bethesda in its sole reasonable discretion may allow Members to prevent their Points from expiring by following Bethesda's instructions.
6. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
ACCRUED POINTS DO NOT CONSTITUTE PROPERTY OF A MEMBER AND HAVE NO VALUE OUTSIDE OF THE PROGRAM. POINTS ARE CREDITS THAT BETHESDA MAY REVOKE AT ANY TIME AS SET FORTH HEREIN. POINTS ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE UPON DEATH, AS PART OF A DOMESTIC RELATIONS MATTER OR OTHERWISE. Each Member is responsible for ensuring that the information in his/her Account is accurate and is kept current. If a Member believes that his/her Account does not properly reflect Points earned from engaging in any activities, the Member must contact Bethesda to resolve the issue. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Program may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Bethesda reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Bethesda's failure to enforce any of these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of the affected provision, or any other provision.
