Wisconsin Contest Rules

General Contest Rules

Contest and Promotion Rules for ESPN Wisconsin

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

Unless otherwise specified ESPN Wisconsin, (Milwaukee: 310 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 100, Milwaukee, WI 53203, and Madison: 7025 Raymond Road, Madison, WI 53207) (“GKB”), these rules cover routine contests and promotions conducted by GKB. These rules may be amended by separate specific rules for major contests or promotions conducted by GKB or its sponsors.

The contest or promotion (the “Promotion”) will take place during the dates and times specified in the official rules of the Promotion (the “Promotion Period”) or as announced by GKB.  GKB may change the dates and/or terms of the Promotion without prior notice.  Any material changes will be broadcast on the Station and, if applicable, posted on its website located at www.ESPNWisconsin.com

Due to delays in the online streaming of GKB’s broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in certain Promotions. Entrants are encouraged to listen to WAUK-540 AM on-air. GKB is not responsible for online streaming delays.

To be eligible to enter or participate in the Promotion, GKB listeners/customers must follow the instructions set forth in the official rules of the Promotion or as announced and must fulfill all of the eligibility requirements of the Promotion. Unless otherwise specified, the Promotion is open to all persons who are legal U.S. residents 18 years of age and who reside in the state of Wisconsin. Void where prohibited or restricted by law.  Employees of GKB, its subsidiary and affiliated entities, its advertising and promotional agencies, its participating sponsors, other radio stations in the Milwaukee or Madison and surrounding areas and the members of their immediate families [spouse, parents, siblings, or children) and/or households are ineligible to participate or win. Participants are eligible to win a prize in a Promotion conducted by GKB only once every sixty (60) days, and participants are eligible to win a prize in a Promotion conducted by GKB only once every six (6) months if the prize is valued over $600.  Only one winner per household is permitted in any GKB-conducted Promotion.  For on-air Promotions, there is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call-in or text; however a listener may only qualify once.

Entrants are required to provide truthful information and GKB will reject and delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent.  GKB will disqualify any entrant who does not meet the eligibility requirements and will also delete any entry as required by law.

Promotion prizes and their values will be indicated when GKB announces the Promotion.  Unless otherwise announced, all prizes or prize certificates must be picked up at the offices of GKB – ESPN Milwaukee, 310 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 100, Milwaukee, WI 53203. Prizes may be claimed during regular business hours (between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday). Promotion winner(s) will be required to present valid government-issued photo identification and provide winner’s complete address, date of birth and phone number to claim a prize.  Unless otherwise permitted by GKB, winner(s) must claim his or her prize(s) in person, and a prize cannot be claimed by third parties on behalf of the winner.  If a Promotion is open to entrants under the age of 18 and a winner is under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must claim the prize.  Failure to comply with these requirements will result in the forfeiture of the prize.  The winner(s) will forfeit any prize(s) or prize certificate(s) not claimed within thirty (30) days of winning unless otherwise specified.  Unless otherwise specified or required by law, if a prize is not claimed, no alternate winner will be selected and the prize will become the property of GKB.  GKB, solely at its discretion and only with the consent of the winner, may opt to deliver the prize to the winner by mail or overnight courier.  In such event, the winner assumes the risk of the prize’s loss and GKB will not be responsible for the safe arrival of the prize or prize certificate.  There is no substitution, transfer or cash equivalent for prizes, except that GKB may, at its sole discretion, substitute prizes of comparable value or cash.  Each prize is expressly limited to the item(s) announced by GKB and does not include taxes, gratuities or any other expenses.  Other restrictions may apply.

Decisions of GKB management with respect to the Promotion are final.

Potential winner(s) will be selected and notified of their prize in the manner announced by GKB.  Promotion winner(s) must execute and return any required Affidavit of Eligibility and/or Release of Liability Prize Acceptance Form within ten (10) days of winning or being notified of winning unless otherwise specified or prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.

Payments of all federal, state and local taxes related to the award of a prize are solely the responsibility of the winner(s).  The winner(s) will be required to complete and submit an IRS Form W-9 with the winner’s full Social Security Number or the equivalent for receipt of any prize valued at $600 or more or for any prizes awarded by GKB in a calendar year with an aggregate value of $600 or more and such winnings will be reported to the IRS.  Failure to submit a complete W-9 or equivalent will result in forfeiture of the prize.

By participating in the Promotion, the winner(s) agrees to have his or her name, voice and likeness used in any advertising or broadcasting material related to such Promotion, without further compensation, and (where permitted by law) to sign a publicity release confirming such consent prior to acceptance of the prize.

Prior to awarding any prize(s) or prize certificate(s), GKB in its sole discretion may require the winner(s) of such prize(s) (and his or her travel companion(s), if any) to sign a liability release, which holds harmless GKB and its affiliated entities, their respective officers, shareholders, directors, employees, agents and representatives and all of their successors and assigns against any and all claims or liability arising directly or indirectly from the prize(s) awarded or participation in the Promotion.  GKB is not responsible for (i) lost, stolen, mangled, misdirected, postage due, illegible, incomplete or late entries; (ii) telephone or mobile service outages, delays, busy signals, facsimile transmission errors, equipment malfunctions and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing his/her telephone call or from sending a text message (if applicable, message and data rates may apply, and GKB is not responsible for any fees incurred by an entrant for this method of entry); or (iii) entries not received due to difficulty accessing the internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties or other technical difficulties.

GKB reserves the right to cancel, terminate, suspend, or modify the Promotion as it deems necessary if it is not capable of completion as planned, including, without limitation, as a result of infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention or technical failures of any sort.  GKB reserves the right to make changes in the rules of the Promotion, including, without limitation, the substitution of a prize or equivalent value, which will become effective upon announcement.  If due to circumstances beyond the control of GKB, any event related to the Promotion or prize is delayed, rescheduled, postponed, cancelled or has a change of venue, GKB reserves the right, but is not obligated, to cancel, terminate, suspend, or modify the Promotion and shall not be required to award a substitute prize.  GKB is not responsible for typographical or other errors in the printing, the offering or the administration of the Promotion, or in the announcement of a prize.

GKB, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry process or the operation of GKB’s website.  Failure to comply with the rules of the Promotion may result in a contestant’s disqualification and/or forfeiture of any prize or prizes.  If GKB makes a good faith determination that an entrant has cheated or committed fraudulent activity in connection with a Promotion, GKB reserves the right to disqualify that entrant from entering and/or winning future Promotions.

For the official rules of a Promotion, send a self-addressed stamped envelope for receipt by the end of the Promotion Period to ESPN Milwaukee, 310 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Suite 100, Milwaukee, WI 53203, Attn: Promotion Rules.  For the names of the prize winners send a self-addressed stamped envelope for receipt within 60 days following the end of the Promotion Period to the attention of Promotion Winner Lists at the above address.  In either case please be sure to specify the name of the Promotion for which you are requesting the rules or winner list.  Official rules and winner lists (when completed) shall also be available during regular business hours at the main offices of GKB.

If you are accessing these rules on GKB’s website or entering the Promotion on said website, you are deemed to agree to such website’s Terms of Use Agreement located at espnwisconsin.com/common/page.php?pt=terms_of_use&id=407 and to the use of your personal information as described in the Privacy Policy located at espnwisconsin.com/common/page.php?pt=privacypolicy&id=406 .

GOOD KARMA BROADCASTING PRIVACY POLICY

The website www.espnwisconsin.com (“the “Site”) is the official web site for radio stations WAUK, WRRD, WTLX & WTTN (“the Stations”), and is owned and operated by Good Karma Broadcasting, LLC (“Good Karma”).  This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) covers the collection, use and dissemination of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that may be collected by Good Karma anytime you interact with this Site, such as when you visit, listen to audio streams, view video streams or when you contact us.  Please take a moment to read this Privacy Policy to learn about our information practices, including what type of information we gather, how and for what purposes we use the information, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your Personal information.  If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not participate in the Station’s online or off-line activities and services that require you to provide Personal Information.

This Privacy Policy was last updated on February 9, 2011 and is effective immediately.

What Information We Collect

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your experience with our products and services.  Here are the types of Personal Information we gather.

Automatic information

Our servers automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information, such as your computer’s IP address, the type of browser you use, the pages you view, the streams you view or listen to, and when you visit our Site.  We use this information to understand how visitors navigate through our Site and use our products and services.  This allows us to enhance your experience while using our Site and to make the materials we post as valuable to visitors as possible.  We do not link this information to Personal information.

Information You Give Us

Generally, you may browse the Site without providing any Personal Information.  You may, however, voluntarily provide Personal Information to us in other ways, such as through registration for contests and sweepstakes, awards points, loyal listener clubs, chat rooms and message boards.  You can choose not to provide certain Personal Information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.  We use the Personal Information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing your experience, improving our product, and communication with you.  When you create an account ­ providing your name, email address, zip code and birth date, the system saves your information and assigns you a personal ID ­ often comprised simply of your email address because it is unique and easy to remember.  Some of this information may, on occasion, be transferred to operational service providers to automatically fill in relevant form fields and simplify the form.  This information is not stored on the third party website until you submit the form.  However, once the form is submitted, this Personal Information may be stored on the third party website.

Off-Line Collection, Use, And Disclosure of Personal Information

The Station also collects and uses Personal Information by other means, including telephone, direct mail and in person. The various uses of such Personal Information include, but are not limited to, contests and sweepstakes, loyal listener club registration, other special membership only features/events, news tip line, job applications, listener complaints, and operational and business purposes.

Except for contests and sweepstakes entries, or registrations for a loyal listener or other special membership features/events, we do not ordinarily use your Personal Information collected off-line for promotional or advertising purposes, nor do we share it with third parties for promotional or marketing purposes.  If Personal Information collected off-line will be used by the Station, its parent company(s), or Affiliates for promotional and marketing purposes, you have the opportunity to Opt-out of such use.  If such information will be shared with advertisers, you will have the same rights as provided for the disclosure of Personal Information collected online.

Why and How We Use the Information Collected

Good Karma collects information to assist us in delivering our product and service and gain a better understanding of our customers, their needs and the types of content most popular with users.  This allows us to determine how best to provide useful information to our users and to understand the services and parts of our Site that are of most interest to them.  In addition, your Personal Information allows us to keep you posted on the latest product announcements, updates, special offers, promotions and events that you might like to hear about.  The information is also used to improve our software and services by providing personalized content, recommendations, location customization, and/or personalized help and instructions.  We also track the content you access and download, where appropriate, for purposes of paying royalties and license fees to third party providers such as record labels, other copyright holders, content distributors and advertisers.

Technologies Used to Collect Information

This Site, like many other corporate websites, uses “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our Site are the most popular and how much time our visitors spend there.  We also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our online advertising is bringing customers to our products and services and to study traffic patterns on our Site and the effectiveness of our customer communications.  This enables us to customize your experience and provide you with greater convenience each time you interact with us.  For example, knowing your first name allows us to welcome you with a personal greeting each time you visit our Site.

In addition, our advertisers will often employ “click through” advertisements on the Site, which link to content on their websites.  When a customer clicks through one of these advertisements, they are directed away from our Site to the advertiser’s destination page through a web server.  Advertisers track this click-through data to determine general interest and measure the effectiveness of their advertising.

E-Mail

We do not generally keep e-mail correspondence, except e-mails related to the on-air programs or operations of the Station.  As required by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), if any part of your email correspondence relates to station programming or operations, we must place such correspondence in the Station’s FCC Public Inspection File, or make the correspondence available via electronic file access at the Station to anyone that requests such information.  Therefore, please be advised that Personal Information contained in emails related to Station programming and operations will be disclosed to the general public.  We therefore request that you not place any Personal Information in email correspondence to the Station that pertains to station programming or operations.  Further, you understand and agree that we are not responsible for the disclosure of your Personal Information that is included in such emails that are made available to the general public in compliance with FCC regulations.

Shopping & E-Commerce

In connection with the sale of goods and/or services or for contest prize fulfillment, we may request Sensitive Personal information.  “Sensitive Personal Information” includes any individual’s (1) social security number; (2) driver’s license number or state identification card number; (3) employee identification number; and (4) credit or debit card number, with or without any required security code or personal identification number (“PIN”).  Sensitive Personal Information will only be used for verification of your identity, federal or state tax reporting requirements, and/or to implement and complete the specific activity or event it was submitted for.  We will not share your Sensitive Personal information for marketing or promotional purposes.  The Site may also request additional Personal Information such as your name, billing and shipping address, email address and/or telephone number and any such information that is required to fulfill your order and to communicate with you regarding your order.  Sensitive Personal Information will be encrypted or collected through a secured Internet connection generally via SSL or S-HTTP protocols.  Sensitive Personal Information will be stored in a commercially reasonable secure manner.  We may use your Personal Information (but not your credit card or debit card number or other Sensitive Personal Information) to contact you about future products, services and discounts from the Station or to provide such information indirectly from our advertisers unless you tell us otherwise (i.e., “opt-out”).  We will only use your credit card and debit card number to complete the specific transaction you requested.  Alternatively, the Site may use a third party operational service provider to conduct the financial transaction in a secure manner; the third party payment process will be accessible via a hyperlink from the Site and the operational service provider will be solely responsible for all financial transactions and the collection, use and storage of your personal information.

Chat Rooms, Message Boards and Public Areas

For your enjoyment and entertainment, this Site may offer user interactive activities such as blogs, chat rooms, message boards, and/or public forums (“Public Areas.”)  If you are required to register to use any interactive area, we do not share any Personal information or Sensitive Personal Information that is entered into the Public Area registration section on the Site with advertisers.  However, any such information that is posted in the Public Area is available to anyone using the Site.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to save and archive any content of any nature posted to the Site and we may, without liability to any user, disclose such content if (1) required to do so by law or to comply with legal processes; (2) to respond to claims that any of the content violates the property, privacy, publicity or other rights of others; or (3) to protect the rights, property or safety of the Site, our Station, our employees, users and members of the public.  For more information on the Site’s rules of conduct for these public Areas, please see our Terms of Use.

Intended Audience

The Station’s Site and its products and services are intended for audiences at least 18 years of age and located in the United States.  All of our services are operated in accordance with the laws of the United States.  We make no representation that any service offered by the Station is operated in accordance with the laws of other nations.  By your participation in the Site’s activities, you certify that you are at least 18 years of age and located in the U.S.  If you are located in the European Union or elsewhere outside of the U.S. and you participate in activities on the Site, you do so at your own risk and initiative, and are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.  Please be aware that any Personal Information you transfer to us from outside the United States will be transferred to the U.S. and is subject to U.S. law.  By using the Site, participating in any Site activities, and/or providing us with your Personal Information, you consent to this transfer of Personal Information to the U.S. and waive any claims that may arise under your own national laws.  All users of the Site are required to provide true, current, complete and accurate Personal Information when prompted and we will reject and delete any contest, sweepstakes or other entry or registration that we believe in good faith to be false, fraudulent, or inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.  We will reject or delete any Personal Information that we believe in good faith to be inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

Children’s Privacy Policy

Although persons of all ages may visit our Site and participate in activities that do not require the collection of Personal Information, we do not knowingly or intentionally collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.  Except for the limited circumstances listed below, we will automatically reject and delete the registration or entry of any person we believe in good faith to be under age, and disqualify such person from the receipt of any prize, benefit or participation to which they may have otherwise been entitled by virtue of such registration or entry.  Except to meet FCC regulations, as required by applicable laws, or other regulatory and legal purposes, we will not use, store or disclose any child’s Personal Information to a third party without prior parental consent.

When We Disclose Information

The Station does not use your Personal Information for purposes inconsistent with those listed above.  Furthermore, the Station does not sell, rent or share your Personal information to or with any third party without your consent, except as discussed below.

Access to certain products and services, such as content subscription products or products distributed by third parties, may require the Station to provide your Personal Information to third parties, such as a content provider or distributor (collectively “Content Partner).  In such cases, this will be stated during the registration process, in the Terms of Use, during the distribution process, or in a similar manner.  The third party’s use of such information is governed by that party’s privacy policy, and the Station’s use is governed by this Privacy Policy. Please visit the privacy policy of the Content Partner to make sure you understand how they use your Personal Information.  If you do not want us to provide your Personal Information to such a third party, you should not register for the applicable product or service.

Additionally, the Station may be required to provide aggregated access and usage information to certain content providers and rights holders as a condition of content licensing and royalty requirements.  In such cases, the Station may provide usage access, demographic and other information, not including your Personal Information, to the content provider and/or rights holder.

We will also share your personal information with our operational service providers, the specialists that provide internal support to the Site design, development, hosting and operations, including maintenance, management, storage and/or fulfillment of our membership and e-mail clubs, various contests, sweepstakes, services, events and online stores.  We use operational service providers to efficiently provide the full range of content, activities and membership services we bring to you.  These operational service providers are bound by strict contractual requirements to keep all Personal Information they process strictly confidential and to use such information solely on behalf of the Station and Good Karma.

The Station may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Station; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Station or Good Karma and its products; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Station’s products and/or services or the public at large.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy Policy does not cover third party advertising or third party content that may appear on the Site.  The Site may provide banner and general advertising from third parties, in addition to other content provided by our advertisers or operational service providers.  Users may from time to time purchase goods or services offered through the Site, or otherwise participate in or send messages concerning such advertising, promotions or third party content offered through the Site.  Such correspondence, transactions and agreements are solely between the user and the advertiser or the third party content provider, and the Site will not be liable for any claims arising from your interactions or transactions with such advertisers or third party content providers.

This Site often provides links to third party websites that could be of interest to our users, including the websites of our Advertisers.  As stated in our Terms of Use, the Station does not own or control these websites and therefore is not responsible for the content, business practices or operations of such websites.  Third party websites linked on this Site may have different privacy policies and business practices than we do.  We therefore encourage you to read their privacy policies.  The presence of a link to a third party website does not constitute or imply our endorsement, recommendation, or sponsorship of the third party’s content, goods or services.  By use of this Site, you have agreed that you will use the hyperlinks to third party sites at your own risk.

Security of Personal Information

The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us.  We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures using acceptable industry standards of security technology and practices (such as electronic security systems and password protections) to try to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access and improper use.  Our databases are accessible only by authorized personnel.  We also request that our operational service providers take such precautions.  From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods.

The station shall make all reasonable efforts to comply with this Privacy Policy.  However, this policy should not be construed as a contractual undertaking, and the Station cannot warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us.  Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.  By transmitting Personal Information to us over the internet, you are accepting any risks associated with doing so.  In addition, you are responsible for taking appropriate measures to protect and secure all passwords, log-on or membership identification information and account information.
