Official Rules

From time to time, KNXV-TV will host a Watch & Win Giveaway during certain programming.  For any such Watch & Win Giveaway (each a “Giveaway”), these rules will govern your participation in the Giveaway, and, in case there is any conflict between the Sponsor’s announcement of the Giveaway and these Official Rules, these Official Rules shall govern.

By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor.

No mechanically reproduced entries of any kind permitted. Illegible and incomplete entries are void. Sponsor is not responsible for interrupted, distorted, or incorrect broadcast information; dropped calls; lost, late, misdirected entries; or entries not received for any reason. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.

WINNER SELECTION:Winners will be selected by viewer's caller number based on random answering of the telephone each applicable time frame a Giveaway is run on the air. Decisions of Sponsor are final on all matters. Winners will be notified by phone/mail. Limit one prize per person/household address. Odds of winning will depend upon the number of eligible entries received.  If a potential winner does not respond after the first attempted contact from Sponsor within (1) business day, he or she could be disqualified and the prize awarded to an alternate winner as determined by random draw from the remaining eligible entries.

PRIZES:The prizes to be awarded may change with each Giveaway and will be generally described on the air prior to announcing which caller will be selected by random answering of the telephone. The approximate retail value of the prizes offered for a Giveaway will vary, but will not exceed $350.00 and may be substantially less.  In general, the items to be awarded to the random winner will be similar to event tickets, movie tickets, lottery tickets, books, DVD's and restaurant gift certificates based on discretion of Sponsor. Prizes consist of only those items specifically listed as part of the prize. No substitution or transfer/assignment of prize by winners permitted. Subject to all terms, conditions and restrictions on face of ticket, gift certificate or imposed by issuer. If by reason of printing or other error, more prizes are claimed than the number of prizes set forth in these Official Rules, a random drawing will be held to award the advertised number of prizes in the relevant category. Under no circumstances will more than the advertised number of prizes be awarded.  Prize details and availability are subject to change, in which case a prize of equal value may be substituted at Sponsor's sole discretion.  Prizes are awarded "AS IS."  Neither Sponsor nor its affiliates, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies, or suppliers make or offer any warranty or guarantee, either express or implied (including, without limitation, quality, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose) in connection with any Giveaway or any prize.

All federal, state and local taxes are the sole responsibility of winners.  All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.  Potential winners (or parent/legal guardian if potential winner is a minor in his/her state of residence) may be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility/Release of Liability/Prize Acceptance Form, which may require social security number, postmarked within 10 days of the date on notification materials. Noncompliance within this time period and/or return of any prize/prize notification as undeliverable may result in disqualification and an alternate potential winner may be selected by random draw from all remaining eligible entries. All winners must produce picture or some other form of proper identification to claim any prize.  Sponsor reserves the right to substitute any prize with prize of equal or greater value. Acceptance of any prize constitutes permission to the Sponsor to use winners’ name, voice, statements, image and likeness for purposes of advertising and trade, in any medium, without further compensation, unless prohibited by law. Submission of contact information in connection with any Giveaway (whether or not required), including mailing address, phone number, and email address, during entry constitutes permission for Sponsor to add entrant to Sponsor’s customer database and to contact entrant in the future for promotional and other reasons.  You may opt-out of receiving such communications as set forth in Sponsor’s Privacy Policy (located at www.abc15.com) or as provided within any such marketing materials (e.g., using the “Unsubscribe” feature provided in the footer of Sponsor’s emails).
