20. When entry requires membership to, or registration with, a third party social network (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) (such person "Users"):  In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of a User, a person who can demonstrate the ability to log into the applicable account with the correct user name and password will be deemed the User who submitted the entry.  Users acknowledge that the third party social network sites ("Social Network Sites") are not affiliated with the Station and, therefore, Station cannot control certain factors relating to such sites, including, without limitation, errors, cancellation of User accounts or technical malfunctions associated with any Social Network Site that may affect any entrant's ability to enter, win, view, be advised of, be eligible for or be properly considered in a particular Station contest.  Contest entry via Social Network Sites may be by one of the following means: (i) Users may be automatically entered in contests from time to time (e.g., all Followers of the applicable Station Twitter account or all Friends or Fan, or people who Like a page or such other terminology used from time to time (as applicable) of the Station's page on Facebook); (ii) User may be required to email the Station, listen to its radio station or visit the Station's website to enter; (iii) all (or selected) Users may be offered the opportunity to call the Station to win at announced days/times or upon the occurrence of certain on-air broadcasts (i.e. a song, series of songs, sounder or phrase); (iv) User may be required to post a comment or take other action to be entered (e.g., changing the User's profile picture) with respect to User's Social Network Site account; or (iv) other means of entry as announced by Station.   With respect to any Station Facebook pages (if any), Station has no obligation whatsoever to "accept" (and reserves the right to freely reject, in its sole discretion in each specific instance) any particular Friend request and any such rejection by Station of a Friend request shall render the requestor ineligible to enter and/or win any contests that require being a "Friend" in order to participate.  Certain contests administered through a Station Facebook page may require that an entrant "like" a Station page in order to access an entry form or to be automatically entered into certain Station contests.  By entering Station contests via a third party social network site, you are authorizing Station to access, utilize and/or pre-load applicable portions of your social network site information (i.e. Facebook profile) into the entry form (although clicking on a separate button may be required to access this function, for example clicking on a "Facebook Login" button).  Station reserves the right, at any time and for any reason or for no reason, to disassociate any person from its social media network page/following by any means then technically available to it (for example, "blocking" a Fan from liking the Station's Facebook page).  Social networking site operators (including, without limitation, Facebook) are in no way a sponsor, endorser or administrator of Station contests and are not affiliated with Station or its contests in any manner.  Entry information provided in Station contests through social networking sites is being provided to Station, not the associated social networking site operator (for example, Facebook).  Some Station Facebook page contests may allow entrants to obtain "extra" entries if they "share" their entry with a friend and that friend validly enters that contest using the link provided by the entrant, provided that (i) the total number of "extra" entries can be capped at a maximum number of "extra" entries, as announced by Station, and (ii) if that friend previously entered that contest through a link from another entrant, his/her attempt to enter the contest through subsequent shared links may not constitute a "valid" entry (in which case, subsequent entrants will not get "extra" entries for that particular friend).
