Employees, contractors and affiliated agents or workers of Challenge Entertainment and their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates and agents, and those prize providers and agencies that are involved in the development or execution of any individual league event or any of its materials, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, and children) and household members of each such ineligible person are not eligible. Each league event is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law. By participating in the league, each player fully and unconditionally agrees to and accepts the Official Rules and the decisions of Challenge Entertainment, which are final and binding in all matters related to the league.
Except where prohibited, participation in any league event constitutes entrant’s consent for Challenge Entertainment, the sponsor (if we have one), applicable prize providers and their respective designees to use player’s first and last name, likeness, prize information, city and state of residence, and any comments, testimonials or other feedback related to any prize or entrant’s league experience, whether written or oral, for promotional purposes in any media without further consideration.
In the event that the operation, security, or administration of any individual league event is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud, human error, virus or other technical problems, Challenge Entertainment may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) modify the league event in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of the Official Rules without suspending it; (b) suspend the league event to address the impairment and then resume the league event in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of the Official Rules; or (c) cancel the league event and award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible players participating at the time of the impairment. Challenge Entertainment reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the qualifying process or the operation of the league event or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of the league, league events or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, from participation in any 2017 Challenge Entertainment National Trivia League event or any other events sponsored by Challenge Entertainment. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of any part of any 2017 Challenge Entertainment National Trivia League event may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Challenge Entertainment reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Challenge Entertainment’s failure to enforce any term of the Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
