artist names to win the $500 MasterCard Gift Card. Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Internet
Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between the Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online
webcast, listeners who listen to the Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog
over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering this Contest on-air may be diminished.
Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Station is not responsible for lost,
late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, inappropriate or misdirected registrations, all of which will be disqualified. In the
event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to
be the participant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned the telephone number by the wireless
carrier or 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. Potential winner may be required to show
proof of being the authorized account holder. All entries become the sole and exclusive property of Station and will not be
returned. Station reserves the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email address is submitted as part of
this promotion. No mail-in entries will be accepted. The promotion will end at the sole discretion of KMGV.
