WCTC CONTEST RULES

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO ENTER AND PRIZE DETAILS WILL BE BROADCAST ON 1450 WCTC DURING THE CONTEST PERIOD.  ADDITIONAL RULES FOR SPECIFIC CONTESTS MAY BE POSTED FROM TIME TO TIME AT WWW.WCTCAM.COM.  IF THERE IS ANY INCONSISTENCY BETWEEN THESE RULES AND THE SPECIFIC CONTEST RULES, THE SPECIFIC RULES WILL GOVERN. 

NO PURCHASE OR OTHER CONSIDERATION IS NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CONTEST; PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE CHANCES OF WINNING. 

Prize

Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received.  Non-cash prizes are not redeemable for cash.  WCTC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute any prize with one of equal or greater value.  Winners may not request prize substitution.  Prizes are non-transferable and may not be claimed or used by any person other than the winner.  Winners must claim their prizes in person at the WCTC offices within 30 days after the end of the contest.  Prizes not claimed within the 30-day period will be forfeited.  Listeners are restricted to one major or grand prize per year.   Contestants may not win multiple major or grand prizes within 365 days.  If a second grand prize is awarded due to fraudulent, deceptive, or incorrect information provided by a contestant, the prize will be rescinded and the grand prize may or may not be awarded, based solely on the decision of station management.  If necessary, WCTC reserves the right to withhold any prize in order to research our prize database for a period of 72 hours following the awarding of the prize in order to ensure compliance with the WCTC Contest Rules. “Major” or “grand prizes” are defined as any prize with a value of $600.00 or more.

Eligibility

All entrants must be at least 18 years old and legal residents of the United States, living or working in WCTC’s total survey area, as defined by Arbitron.  A winner will be disqualified if he/she or a member of his/her household has won a WCTC contest with a value over $50.00 within the previous 60 days.  Employees (including their immediate families and members of the same household) of Greater Media New Jersey, its affiliates, promotion sponsors, advertising and promotional agencies who do business with WCTC or any of the promotion sponsors, and other radio stations in WCTC’s metro survey area (as defined by Arbitron) are not eligible to participate in any contest presented by WCTC.  The term “immediate family” includes spouses, siblings, parents and legal guardians, children and legal wards, grandparents, and grandchildren, including “in-laws.”  One entry per person; multiple entries will disqualify the entrant.  Void where prohibited.

Release

Winners agree to release and hold harmless the promotion sponsors, WCTC, The Sentinel Publishing Co., and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability and any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with this contest and any prize won.  Winners (and their guests, if any) will be required to sign a form releasing WCTC and its affiliated companies from all liability in connection with the contest and the award and use of the prize before claiming the prize.

Taxes

WCTC will report the total value of each prize to the IRS and will furnish winners with a federal Form 1099.  Winners must provide their social security number to WCTC for tax reporting purposes, and are solely responsible for payment of all taxes incurred as a result of the award of a prize. 

General

Failure to conform to all contest rules, or any fraud or other illegal or inappropriate conduct on the part of a contestant, will result in the contestant's disqualification and forfeiture of any prize won.  WCTC reserves the right to rule ineligible listeners who, in WCTC’s sole judgment, engage in abusive conduct with respect to any contest or promotion conducted by WCTC or its affiliates.  WCTC reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify this Contest and these Official Rules at any time, which changes will become effective upon announcement.  By taking part in this contest, participants agree to be bound by these rules and all decisions of the judges, who are employees of WCTC and whose decisions with respect to all aspects of the contest are final and binding.  Copies of written contest rules and the list of winners are available during regular business hours at the WMGQ/WCTC Broadcast Center, 78 Veronica Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873 for 60 days after the contest concludes.  

As a condition to participating in this Contest, each entrant agrees that any and all disputes that cannot be resolved between the parties, and all causes of action arising out of or in connection with this Contest shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, exclusively before a court located in New Brunswick, NJ having competent jurisdiction, which court shall apply the laws of the State of New Jersey, without regard to the conflicts of law principles thereof. The entrant and WCTC hereby waive any and all right to trial by jury. If any provision of these Official Rules is declared or found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, then such provision will be null and void but each other provision hereof not so affected will be enforced to the full extent permitted by applicable law.

All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.
