WKYQ General Prize Policy/Contest Rules

 

To give all of our listeners the opportunity to feel the excitement of winning from the Rabbit, we ask our contestants to remember a few guidelines:

Unless otherwise posted, contests on WKYQ are open to all legalU.S.residents ofKentucky,Illinois,Tennessee,MissouriandIndianawho reside within the coverage area of WKYQ. Contestants must be age 18 or older to win and/or claim prizes with a retail value of $100 or more or certain other prizes that by their nature should be restricted to persons under 18 years old. Employees of Bristol Broadcasting Company, Inc., employees of subsidiary and affiliated companies and their respective advertising and promotion agencies; and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible. Owners, directors, and employees of business entities that are primary sponsors of any contest or promotion and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible to participate in the particular contest(s) with which their business entities are associated. Owners, directors, and employees of business entities of whatsoever nature that are engaged in the same or substantially similar types of business as that of Bristol Broadcasting Company and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible.

For the purpose of these rules your immediate family members include (as applicable) your mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, step-mother, step-father, step-son, step-daughter, step-brother, and step-sister. Members of your household include all persons who reside in the same house (or have the same home address) as you.

Unless otherwise posted, only one member of an immediate family or household may win a major prize ($100 value or more) in any single contest or promotion. Upon the winning of a major prize by one member of an immediate family or household, he or she and all other members of his/her immediate family and/or household become ineligible to participate further in that contest or promotion.

Please wait at least two weeks after you win a prize to play another contest on WKYQ. If the prize you win is a major prize ($100 value or more) please wait at least 30 days before playing another contest. We also limit most contests to one winner per household. Some contests have additional restrictions that will be announced or posted as needed.

No purchase is necessary to participate in any WKYQ contest or sweepstakes.

Most prizes won on-air at WKYQ, or on WKYQ.com are to be picked up at our offices. This is a necessary policy because many prizes are too big, bulky, or heavy to be mailed. Other times we give away tickets for shows or events that will occur only a day or two past the giveaway date, so there is not enough time to mail these items. We also give away many prizes that are limited, one of a kind, or not replaceable. If they are lost in the mail, we cannot get replacements for the winners. And, finally, once an item is mailed, we have no way to verify whether the winner received the prize or not. These reasons make it impractical for us to mail prizes, so we simply ask winners to pick up their prizes at our offices Monday through Friday – 9am to 430pm – except holidays. If your prize will not be available for normal pick-up, special instructions will be given to you at the time of winning. Prizes not picked up within two weeks may be forfeited and become the property of WKYQ. Prizes such as concert and event tickets must be picked up at the office of WKYQ prior to 4:30pm Central time on the last day of business prior to the show, concert, or event, otherwise they shall be forfeited and become the exclusive property of WKYQ. WKYQ guarantees no monetary or redemption value for ticket to events, concerts, shows, races, or performances that are given away as prizes. Such tickets are good only for admission to the advertised event, and WKYQ assumes no responsibility for redeeming such tickets should an event be cancelled, postponed, or not held for any reason whatsoever. WKYQ is not obligated to give winners tickets to another concert or event, should their designated concert or event be cancelled.

Many of the WKYQ contests and sweepstakes involve on-air interaction between the contestants and the WKYQ air personalities via the contestants’ telephones. Failure of a telephone connection during a play of the contest may eliminate that contestant, and another contestant may be designated. WKYQ assumes no responsibility for technical, electronic, telephone congestion, hardware, software or network, computer or data transmission errors, malfunctions or difficulties of any kind.

Payment of any taxes and/or fees associated with the acceptance of any prize is the sole responsibility of the winner of the prize. WKYQ reserves the right to award an equivalent substitute prize should any announced prizes become damaged or unavailable. Each winner must accept the prize or equivalent substitute prize(s) as offered. Winners may be required to sign a release form or other certifying documents prior to being awarded their prizes. For prizes (or prize packages) exceeding a retail value of $599, a contestant will be required to furnish his/her Social Security Number and complete an IRS Form W-9 prior to being awarded his/her prize(s).

By participating in a contest or sweepstakes offered by WKYQ, contestants consent to the use of their names, voices, photographs or likeness for advertising or publicity purposes related to this or similar promotions without compensation.

By participating, entrants agree, on behalf of themselves, their executors, assigns and heirs, (a) to abide by all the rules and the decisions of the management of WKYQ which shall be final in all matters relating to all contests and sweepstakes; (b) release and hold harmless WKYQ Radio, its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies and their respective directors, officers and employees from any and all liability, claims, or actions of any kind whatsoever for injuries, damages or losses to persons and property which may be sustained in connection with the receipt, ownership, or use of any prize or while preparing for, participating in, and/or traveling to any prize-related or contest-related activity associated in any manner whatsoever with WKYQ contests and/or sweepstakes; and (c) that WKYQ Radio nor any of the aforementioned entities are responsible for damaged, late, lost, misdirected entries or communications.

Prize winners, by accepting a prize, acknowledge that WKYQ has neither made nor is in any manner responsible or liable for any warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, relative to any prize or part thereof.

WKYQ Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

WKYQ respects the privacy of users on the Internet and has developed this privacy policy to protect user privacy on its Web sites. The purpose of this policy is to explain the types of information WKYQ obtains about the users of the Covid-19 Listener Survey site, how the information is obtained, how it is used, how it may be disclosed to others, and how users can restrict its use or disclosure.

Personally Identifiable Information

Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of “personally identifiable” information which an individual or customer reasonable expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, “personally identifiable” information is information that can be associated with a specific individual or entity.

The only personally identifiable information WKYQ obtains about individual users through our web sites is information supplied voluntarily by the user. Users interacting with our sites may provide WKYQ with name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, domain name or URL or other personally identifiable information that WKYQ may use for its own business purposes. WKYQ will collect and use this information for the ability to provide and change service, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, for billing purposes, or to create or inform you of products and services that better meet your needs.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

WKYQ does collect some non-personally identifiable generic information about our users as a means of measuring the effectiveness of our web sites. WKYQ identifies certain user information in the normal course of operation, but such information does not reveal a user’s personal identity. We collect this information only in the aggregate and use it to evaluate and improve our web sites. The following are examples of non-personally identifiable generic information:

IP Addresses: An IP address is a number that is assigned to a user’s computer whenever that user is using the World Wide Web. Web site servers must be able to identify individual computers by their IP address. WKYQ collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration security and to report aggregate usage information. WKYQ does not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information.

Computer settings: Settings, technical and other information from your computer, such as your operating system, browser version, connectivity, various communication parameters and other information related to the operation and interaction of WKYQ web sites may be collected by WKYQ. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, WKYQ will use such information solely in order to provide technically appropriate formatting of information provided by WKYQ. The collection of this information will not include any personally identifiable information about you or any individual user.

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that are used for record keeping purposes. Cookies allow WKYQ to save certain information about a user, such as individual preferences, in order to facilitate and enhance the user’s future activity on the WKYQ web site. WKYQ will not use cookies to retrieve information from a user’s computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. Except as otherwise provided in this policy, WKYQ shall not use information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes, and shall not share that information with any third parties for any reason. A user may refuse cookies by turning off that feature on their web browser.

Disclosure

WKYQ will not sell, trade, or disclose to third parties any personally identifiable information derived from registration for or use of a WKYQ service without the consent of the customer, except as required by subpoena, search warrant, or court order pursuant to applicable law, regulation or legal process or in the case of imminent physical harm to the customer or others.

Non-Participation

Any user who does not wish to receive further contacts from WKYQ may write to

WKYQ
6000 Bristol Drive
Paducah, Ky. 42003.

Data Security

WKYQ will protect the confidentiality of its customer’s personally identifiable information to the fullest extent possible and consistent with law and legitimate interests of WKYQ and its employees. To protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of such information, WKYQ has appropriate physical, electronic and management procedures in place.

If you have any questions about this privacy policy, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this web site, you can contact us by writing to

WKYQ is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of non-WKYQ web sites, including web sites reached through a link on a WKYQ web site. Other web sites may have different privacy policies, or no policy. Users should review the privacy policies of any web site before providing personal information.

Should WKYQ modify its practices regarding the collection and use of information obtained from users in the future, this privacy policy will be amended to reflect such modifications.
