If a telephone respondent agrees to furnish the necessary personal information to the representative, the respondent will be entered into the Community and into the Promotion by 101.5 LITE FM at the earliest practical moment. No separate entry form will be required. There may be a reasonable gap in time from the point that a telephone respondent agrees to enter the Promotion and when the respondent is actually entered into the Promotion and is eligible for selection as a Contestant; 101.5 LITE FM assumes no responsibility for such a delay.
