Notice about the Collection of Information and Minors:
The School Duel site may collect information from minors and adults. The information collected may include answers to weekly trivia game questions as well as responses to polls (i.e. player of the week, etc.). The site may collect a user's personal information, including: name, age, zip code and email address. The purpose of collecting this information is so that the site's operators may contact a user in the event the user is selected as a prize winner in a trivia game. The collected contact information will not be used for marketing nor for any other purpose; it will be used for one contact only, in the event a specific user is selected as a prize winner. The collected contact information will not be disclosed to any third parties.
If a child is selected as a winner, the site's operators will respond to the contact information provided, but will also attempt to work with a child's parents on the awarding of any prize. The site's operators may not condition a child's participation in an activity on the provision of more personal information than is necessary to participate in the activity. If desired, a parent may review a child's submitted information, may request it be deleted from our database, and/or may decline a child's winning of a prize by contacting the site's operators. The site's operators follow reasonable and customary procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information it collects.

To be eligible for a weekly trivia game prize, participants must be a U.S. citizen residing in either Broward, Miami-Dade or Palm Beach Counties, Florida.

A new trivia game will appear on the School Duel site each week during the duration of the original School Duel television broadcast. A random drawing will be held at the end of the season to select one winner of an Apple iPad from all correct entries submitted from the trivia games for that entire season. In the event a selected winner is unreachable or cannot accept the prize for any reason, the selected winner may forfeit the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the remaining eligible entries. No purchase is necessary to enter. No transfer or substitution of prize permitted by winner. Taxes, if any, are the responsibility of the prize winner. Odds of winning will depend upon the number of entries received for each game. All federal, state and local laws apply. Void where prohibited by law. The School Duel site operators are the judges in determining the winners. The decisions of the judges are final in all respects.
