The Q Live mobile application (the “App”) is made available by News UK & Ireland Limited, a company registered in England with Company No 01893198 whose registered address 1 London Bridge Street, London, SE1 9GF (“NewsUK”, “us”, “we” or “our”).
The purpose of the App is to allow you to play “Q Live” – the game that stops the nation! Q Live is a series of shows streamed live daily at set times. Each Q Live show (a “Show”) consists of a 12 question trivia game (a “Game”). You can play as many Games as you want, or just watch Shows. There are prizes for each Game, but you can also accumulate leaderboard points. The Q Live weekly leaderboard (the “Leaderboard”) will give you great bragging rights. We may also award prizes or other benefits to the weekly Leaderboard leader. The more Games you play, the better your chances at climbing the Leaderboard. We may also periodically introduce new or special features and additional prizes. More details of these can be found in the Game Rules or will be explained on the App or in the relevant Show.
