From time to time, Cumberland County Federal Credit Union (“CCFCU”) may sponsor various contests for various prizes. No purchase is necessary to enter any contest or win any prize. These General Contest Rules apply to all contests sponsored by CCFCU.
1) ELIGIBILITY: Contests (each a “Contest”) are open to anyone who is a legal resident of the United States and is 18 years of age or older. Void where prohibited by law. Employees of CCFCU, as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings, children and each of their respective spouses, regardless of where they reside) and household members of each such employee, whether related or not, are not eligible to enter or win. Contests are governed by Maine law and are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
2) TIMING. The Contest will extend for the period set forth in the contest post on advertising, social, mailings, collateral, or signage. All entries must be received by CCFCU by the deadline specified in the contest in order to be included in the prize drawing. CCFCU is not responsible for late, lost, misdirected or incomplete entries. All entries shall be for the contest entered and one drawing only. A new entry is needed for each individual contest.
3) ENTERING A CONTEST: There is no purchase necessary to enter or win any Contest.
Each Entrant will be required to acknowledge agreement to these General Contest Rules as well as specific rules applicable to a particular contest (“Rules”) before an entry will be considered. Entering the Contest will be considered agreement to all terms and conditions and acceptance of the Rules.
*If it is a Contest on social media (i.e. Facebook), comment on the contest thread for a chance to win by the deadline set forth in the contest post. Specifically, a question will be posted on the CCFCU Facebook wall by CCFCU (when a contest is being held). Commenting on the post will count as a contest entry. By entering a contest each contestant declares the he or she has complied with the Contest Rules. Further, the winner of the Contest must conform to all directions given by CCFCU or his/her participation in the Contest will be denied. All entries and/or comments become the property of CCFCU and will not be returned to entrants. Incomplete or illegible entries are void. Non-compliance with any entry procedure will result in disqualification.
Individuals are allowed to submit only one entry per person (together the “Entry”), which must be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted as a comment to the CCFCU Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CumberlandCountyFCU/. More than one Entry by a given individual will result in disqualification of all Entries submitted by that individual.
Entry must be family friendly, not include violence, sexually explicit or suggestive behaviors, or derogatory words, explicit language, gestures or profanities, not promote alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs, not contain any personal information other than names, not include any libelous or copyrighted material, and not have endangered or appear to have endangered any person or property. Children (with consent from a parent or guardian) and any adult may be identifiable and must sign a media release form, get an approval by email to email@example.com or a verbal approval if at an event. All material must be original, in English, and authored by the Entrant.
All Contest entries will become property of CCFCU to be used at the sole discretion of CCFCU and will not be acknowledged or returned. CCFCU may use Entrant’s name, age, image, biographical information; and Entrant will indemnify and hold harmless CCFCU if any claims or actions arise against CCFCU on account of any entry or Contest.
All entries submitted will be reviewed by CCFCU for eligibility and reviewed for content. If Entrant appropriately (as determined by CCFCU in its sole discretion) answers the previously stated question, and the Entrant otherwise meets all eligibility requirements, it may be made public.
4) WINNERS: CCFCU’s determination of all winners is final. Winners will be selected by CCFCU no later than the designated contest closing date, from all eligible Entries received. CCFCU’s decisions are final and binding on all matters relating to the Contest. Winners will be notified by email or phone and will be required to execute and return certain documentation as determined by CCFCU within five (5) business days of notification. If a Winner cannot be reached within three (3) business days from the first notification attempt, the Prize will be forfeited and, at CCFCU’s sole discretion, an alternate Winner will be selected.
Prizes are not transferable or redeemable for cash or other substitutes.
Prizes are awarded “as is” with no warranty or guarantee either express or implied by CCFCU. No substitution, assignment, cash equivalent, transfer or exchange is permitted.
