General Contest Rules for KSON-FM (the “Rules”)
(Updated July 9, 2014)

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

Unless otherwise specified, these rules cover routine contests, sweepstakes, and promotions (collectively, “Contests”) conducted by KSON-FM (the “Station”). These Rules supersede all other published editions of the Station’s Generic Contest Rules. Unless otherwise specified, each Contest shall be deemed sponsored by the Station, notwithstanding the participation of any entities providing prizes or promotional consideration. Specific official contest rules for particular contests govern those particular contests and supersede these Rules. To the extent that specific official contest rules for a particular contest are inconsistent with these Rules, the provisions of the specific official contest rules govern. All federal, state, and local regulations apply. By entering, you agree to comply with applicable laws and these Rules, and you agree to abide by all decisions of the Station or its designee(s), which are final and binding.


1. Eligibility.

Entrants must follow instructions set forth in the official rules for the Contests or as announced on-air and must fulfill all of the eligibility requirements of the Contests. Unless otherwise noted, Contest open only to legal U.S. residents who are 18 years or older at time of entry. Further, entrants must be living in SAN DIEGO COUNTY as determined by Nielsen Media Research Services at the time of entry to participate and enter. Prizes are non-transferable by winners. Employees of the Station, the Station’s licensee, Lincoln Financial Media Company, Lincoln National Corporation, prize providers or co-sponsors, their parent, subsidiary, and affiliated companies, and their advertising or promotional agencies (collectively, the "Contest Entities"), and the immediate families or members of the same households of such individuals are not eligible. “Immediate family” members include spouses, children, step-children, parents, step-parents, siblings, and step-siblings. Proof of age, identity, and eligibility must be furnished to the Station upon request. All entry form information must be complete and accurate. Station will not award a prize to anyone not meeting eligibility requirements at the time of entry. Station reserves the right to disqualify any entrant if these Rules are not followed. Only one winner per household is permitted in any Station-conducted Contest. Winners of a Station-conducted contest within the past 30 days are not eligible. No groups, clubs, or organizations may participate in this Contest. Due to delays in the Station’s online streaming of its broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or be disadvantaged in participating in certain on-air Contests.


2. Contest Period and Entries.

Contests will take place during the times and dates specified by the Station (“Contest Period”). The Station may change dates, times and/or terms of the Contest without prior notice and will announce any material changes on-air and, if applicable, online on the Station’s website at http://www.kson.com.

Entries may not be acknowledged or returned. Unless otherwise specified, limit one entry per person. For call in Contests, there is no limit to the number of times a person may attempt to call in to win, but an entrant may be a prize winner only once per Contest. Incomplete entries are void. Station is not responsible for entries that are lost, late, misdirected, incomplete, incomprehensible, illegible, damaged, undeliverable or delayed. Photocopied and mechanically generated entries are void. Entries generated by any automated means are void. Electronic and e-mail entries will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail address at the time of the entry. The authorized account holder is the person to whom the applicable internet service provider or other organization (such as a business or educational institution) has assigned the e-mail address. Entries must be received by the set deadline for the Contest in order to be eligible.


3. Selection of Winners, Prizes and Odds of Winning.

Winners for each Contest will be selected in the manner announced on-air and/or posted on KSON.com. Contest prizes and their values will be indicated when the Station announces the Contest. If prizes are to be awarded by random drawing and unless otherwise specified, odds of winning shall depend on the number of entries received. If prizes are to be awarded based upon the order of calls received, odds of winning shall depend on the number and order of calls received. Prizes are non-transferable by winners. Contest prize winners may not substitute or transfer prizes but Station reserves the right to substitute prize with a prize of equal or greater value. Each prize is expressly limited to the item(s) announced by the Station and does not include taxes, gratuities or any other expenses. All charges, fees, costs and expenses not specifically included in the applicable prize descriptions are the responsibility of the respective Prize Winner and his or her guest, if applicable. Other restrictions may apply.


4. Notification and Claim.

Potential winner(s) will be selected and notified of their prize in the manner announced by the Station. Station is not responsible for incomplete, incomprehensible, illegible, or out-of-service contact information. Contest winner(s) must execute and return any required prize winner release or prize acceptance form within seven (7) days of winning or being notified of winning (or sooner for time sensitive prizes) or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. Unless otherwise announced, Contest prizes must be claimed within one (1) month of winning. Unless otherwise announced, all prizes or prize certificates must be picked up at the offices of the Station at 1615 Murray Canyon Rd. Ste 710 San Diego, CA 92108.

Unless otherwise permitted by the Station, winner(s) must claim his or her prize in person, and a prize cannot be claimed by third parties on behalf of the winner. If a Contest is open to entrants under the age of 18 and a winner is under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must accompany the minor child in all Contest-related activities, and a parent or legal guardian must claim the prize and sign any requisite releases on behalf of the minor child. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in the forfeiture of the prize.

Unless otherwise permitted by the Station, winner(s) must claim his or her prize in person, and a prize cannot be claimed by third parties on behalf of the winner.  A parent or legal guardian must accompany any minor children in all Promotion-related activities, and a parent or legal guardian must claim the prize and sign any requisite releases on behalf of the minor child.
