13. As a licensee of the FCC and a trustee of the public airwaves, Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ reserves the right to interrupt and/or discontinue any contest or promotion (and not award the offered prize) at the discretion of Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ management if world events, the national mood, or public safety so warrant.
14. Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ reserves the right to amend the rules to any contest at any time. The judge’s decision is always final.
15. For any contest requiring phone entry you must use only the following number unless otherwise specified: (434) 220-2395. For texting it is 77000. The person operating the telephone at Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ has the final decision as to who is the winning caller.
16. Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ shall have no responsibility for contestant’s inability or failure to participate, failure to win or claim any prize based on malfunction or difficulties with telephone, cell phone, texting, email, or internet access, or any other circumstances in any contest beyond Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ’s control.
17. The following are specifically related to E-contests and E-Mail Club promotions on LiteRockZ951.com:
a. All appropriate information in required fields must be filled out correctly and completely or you will be disqualified.
b. To win a prize you must reside within the listening area of Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ as defined at the exclusive discretion of Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ management.
c. Any problems with the internet or email are not Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ’s responsibility.
d. Contestants who register to participate on our website may be required to produce a printed copy of proof of registration before being allowed to participate in the contest.
e. Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests may not be heard at all. Contests heard on the radio Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ’s internet audio stream may be slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more. This means that when Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ (such as “Caller number 9 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air.
18. A copy of these rules are available during business hours at the Lite Rock Z95.1 WQMZ studios 1140 Rose Hill Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22903.
