THE CONTEST IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW OR WHERE BONDING, REGISTRATION, OR OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET, OR WHERE THE METHODS OF ENTRY SET FORTH BELOW WOULD BE DEEMED CONSIDERATION. ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS APPLY.
Subject to these Official Rules, the Contest is open to individual persons who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. To be eligible to receive a Prize (as defined below), the information associated with the entrant’s account must be true and accurate. The information associated with the entrant’s account must identify the actual entrant into the Contest. In order to facilitate the delivery of a Prize (as defined below), Orthopreneurs may attempt to contact the winner using the phone number provided during account registration. If Orthopreneurs cannot get in contact with the winner using that phone number, the winner may forfeit his/her Prize. Certain Contests are only open to residents of specific countries. Any person that enters into a Contest that he/she is not eligible to enter may not win a Prize (as defined below) in that Contest.
Employees, agents, and contractors (collectively, “employees”) of Sponsor and its respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotion agencies and any other entity involved in the development or administration of this Contest, and all persons residing in the same households as employees, including but not limited to immediate family members are not eligible to win the Contest while the employee is employed or engaged by Sponsor and for six months following the employee’s last day working with or for Sponsor.
Entrants may, in certain circumstances, communicate with, work with, or otherwise benefit from others with whom they have a preexisting relationship while participating in a Contest. However, entrants may not communicate with, work with, or otherwise benefit from more than 10 other persons while entering a Contest if the communications between the entrant and those persons is facilitated by any technological means other than those explicitly provided by Sponsor.
Orthopreneurs reserves the right to verify an entrant’s eligibility before, during, or after the Contest.
Notice to all international entrants: As stated above, it is your responsibility to comply with the contest laws of your country/jurisdiction. You acknowledge that certain countries/jurisdictions have laws regarding Contests that may prevent Sponsor from awarding you your Prize (as defined below). If you are a winner and this happens to be the case with your country/jurisdiction, you acknowledge that you may not be able to receive any Prize at all from Sponsor. By entering this Contest, you acknowledge the risks, and understand that you may win, but not be able to receive a Prize.
Sponsor will announce Contests through the App from time to time. You may join a Contest while it is live. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel Contests, in our sole discretion, with no restrictions.
HOW TO ENTER:
No purchase or payment is necessary to participate in a Contest. Enter a Contest by completing each of the following steps:
- Download or open the OP Trivia Application downloaded through the Apple Store on your mobile device, and either (a) log into your existing account, or (b) if you do not already have an account, sign up for an account with a verified phone number.
- Click “Join.” You will receive a notification when the live trivia game show match begins. You will have 10 seconds to answer each question. If you get the answer right, you will move on to the next round. If you get the answer wrong, you are eliminated for the remainder of the game.
An entrant participating in a Contest who has earned, been awarded, or purchased an extra life (“Extra Life”) may use that Extra Life to reenter a Contest after being eliminated. By default, an entrant’s Extra Life will be used upon elimination unless the entrant chooses not to use it by following the in-App prompts. Each entrant can only use one Extra Life per game. Neither Extra Lives nor any other purchase or payment are required to participate in the Contest.
The winner of each Contest, upon completion of all verifications and obligation requirements described in these Official Rules, will receive a cash prize, determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion (the “Prize”). Sponsor will distribute prizes according to the rules for the specific Contest entered and players will split Prizes according to those rules (as explained below). You may view the total of all accrued Prizes you have won through your account. You will need a minimum Prize balance of $50 in your account to cash-out. To receive payment of your accrued Prizes (one minimum amount is met), you must cash-out Prizes through PayPal, a third party service. Prize fulfillment will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of PayPal, located at https://www.paypal.com . In certain instances involving larger Prizes, at Orthopreneurs sole discretion, you will be contacted directly to receive it by a mutually agreeable method and payment will be subject to a confirmation of the winner’s eligibility to receive a Prize consistent with Sponsor’s Rules.
Each user may establish, maintain, use and control only one account. Each account may only be owned, maintained, used and controlled by one individual. For avoidance of doubt, users may not “co-own” accounts. In the event Sponsor determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one account, in addition to any other rights that Sponsor may have, Sponsor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any or all of your accounts and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any Prizes.
Each account can only be associated with one PayPal account.
Orthopreneurs will only issue a Prize and any accompanying tax forms to the individual identified in the account information for the winning account. Orthopreneurs uses your account information to contact and verify winners. Out of date or incorrect account information at the time you enter a Contest may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information in connection with your account may result in termination of that account and forfeiture of any Prizes awarded.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Contest. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any Prizes other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to the winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize is unable to be fulfilled to the winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize at all. The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. Winners shall provide Orthopreneurs with accurate information regarding their identity and country of residence.
Players must select the correct answer to each question. If a player submits an incorrect answer or fails to select an answer in the allotted time, the player will be eliminated unless the player uses an Extra Life and has not yet used an Extra Life in that Contest. The winner of an OP Trivia Contest will be the last person remaining at the end of each game show match. If there are multiple players remaining after the final question, such remaining players will split the Prize evenly.
