4. Privacy: During Registration
and/or participation in Promotion, you may be asked research questions and/or
asked to consent to receive promotional information from KNBC and selected
partners. Answering research questions and/or consenting to receive promotional
information is optional and does not have to be agreed to in order to be
eligible to enter the Promotion, nor will answering research questions and/or
consenting to receive promotional information affect entrants’ odds of winning.
Entrants will have the opportunity to receive information from KNBC and
selected partners by checking the appropriate box(es). If, at any time, you do
not wish to receive materials from KNBC or our partners, please go to our
privacy policy, located at nbcla.com/challenge
or the applicable partner’s privacy policy and follow the procedure indicated.

 

5. How to Enter: You can enter (1) via mobile
application device, or (2) online.

 

Television Transmission
Delays:

Depending on the entrant’s television service (i.e., cable, digital cable,
over-the-air via antenna, or satellite), the reception of the transmission of
the Show may reach particular households at different times. If entrants have a
digital video recorder (DVR) hooked up to their televisions, they may
experience a delay in receiving the transmission as well. Sponsors disclaim any
liability and will make no allowance for delays in receiving the transmission
of the Show.  

 

 

A.         Playing
Using a Mobile Communications Enabled Device

How to Play
Using a Mobile Communications Enabled Device: three (3) multiple-choice
questions will appear during each Show, as specified in Section 3 above.
Entrants should submit their answer for each individual question using the
question number and the letter of their answer (a, b, or c) on the NBCLA Mobile
Application. Point accumulation will not be a factor in each Individual Drawing
but participation and number of questions answered will reflect which prizes
the Entrant is eligible to win (see “Prize” section below for more
information). For more information, see “Scoring” in Section 5(C). Message
and Data Rates May Apply.

 

You must
have a mobile communications subscription with a participating carrier or
otherwise have access to a mobile communications network. In addition, you must
provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to the communication
network, including, but not limited to, a mobile hand set or other mobile
access device that is in working order. In the event of a dispute as to the
identity of a mobile application entrant, the authorized account holder of the
mobile telephone number used to enter will be deemed to be the entrant. The
“Authorized Account Holder” of a mobile telephone number is defined
as the natural person who is assigned the mobile telephone number by the
wireless carrier as shown on the carrier’s records. The potential winner may be
required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder. 

 

Mobile
Device Delays:

Entries via mobile Applications may be subject to delays resulting from carrier
congestion or network drop outs. Due to differences in times between servers,
all mobile Entries will be time-stamped according to the time-stamp on Sponsors’
server. Sponsors disclaim any liability and will make no allowance for delays
in a message arriving at Sponsors’ server. 

 

B.         Playing
Online

 

How to Play
Online: three (3) multiple-choice questions will appear during each Show, as
specified in Section 3 above. Entrants may answer the questions online at http://www.nbcla.com/challenge.
Entrants should “click” on the appropriate answer letter, represented
by large boxes with A, B, or C on them. After every question, the page will
refresh with the next set of selections. The quicker your response, the more
points you will receive. Point accumulation will not be a factor in each
Individual Drawing but participation and number of questions answered will
reflect which prizes the Entrant is eligible to win (see “Prize” section below
for more information). For more information, see “Scoring” in Section
5(C).  

 

In the
event of a dispute as to the identity of any online entrant, Sponsors reserve
the right to deem the authorized account holder of the email address used to
enter as the entrant. The “Authorized Account Holder” of an email
address is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access
provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for
assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address
or the natural person assigned as the account holder. The potential winner may
be required to show proof of being the Authorized Account Holder.  

 

            C.         Scoring

 

Entrants will be
awarded points per question based on a thirty (30) point scale. After the
question is announced on-air, three (3) answers (one (1) correct answer and two
(2) incorrect answers) will be revealed simultaneously. Once the first answer
is removed from the screen, the maximum point value is twenty (20); after the
second answer is removed, only the correct answer will remain on the screen and
the maximum point value is ten (10). Answers will be removed from the screen at
six (6)-second intervals. After three (3) seconds have elapsed during that six
(6)-second period, the point value diminishes by five (5). For example, the
point value will go from thirty (30) to twenty-five (25), to twenty (20) to
fifteen (15), to ten (10). Entrants will have eighteen (18) seconds to answer
each question. Entrants will receive zero (0) points if they select the wrong
answer at any time, and will be locked out of the game until the next question.
You cannot change your answers. Answers received after the corresponding
segment ends will be disregarded. Point accumulation will not be a factor in
each Individual Drawing but participation and number of questions answered will
reflect which prizes the Entrant is eligible to win (see “Prize” section below
for more information).
