CCG Official Contest Rules
The following are basic rules governing all contests conducted by Certified Collectibles Group, LLC or its affiliates (together, “CCG”). In the event that no other rules are published for a particular contest or promotion, the following rules will apply. In some instances, rules for individual contests and promotions may conflict with these rules in which case, the individual contest rules will take precedence over the basic rules. All contests are void where prohibited by law.
Eligibility and Limitations. Participants and winner(s) must be U.S. residents. Limit of one entry per person. Only one (1) prize per household for the contest. In the case of email contests, limit of 1 entrant per email sent/received. There is no limitation on age. A parent or guardian of any participant who is a minor must sign a release on behalf of the minor to be eligible to receive a prize, but CCG reserves the right to refuse to award a prize to or on behalf of any minor. Employees of CCG, the contest’s participating sponsors and their advertising agencies, and members of the immediate family of any such persons are not eligible to participate and win. The term “immediate family” includes spouses, siblings, parents, children, grandparents, and grandchildren, whether as “in-laws,” or by current or past marriage(s), remarriage(s), adoption, co-habitation or other family extension, and any other persons residing at the same household whether or not related.
Entries. Only entries submitted at the website designated by CCG with forms provided by CCG may be used to enter the contest. Winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries received. All blanks must be filled in accurately or entry may be considered ineligible.
Prize(s). The prize(s) that may be awarded to the eligible winner(s) are not transferable, redeemable for cash or exchangeable for any other prize. Participants must provide valid and accurate contact information. If a winner cannot be contacted or is disqualified for any reason, CCG reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or not to award that winner’s prize, in its sole discretion. PRIZES ARE AWARDED “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND OR NATURE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTY RESPECTING CONDITION, MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, TITLE, OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Tax. Any valuation of the prize(s) stated above is based on available information provided to CCG, and the value of any prize awarded to a winner may be reported for tax purposes as required by law. Each winner is solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes related to the prize(s) and paying any expenses associated with any prize which is not specifically provided for in the official rules. Each winner must provide CCG with valid identification and a valid taxpayer identification number or social security number before any prize will be awarded. Any person winning over $600 in prizes from CCG will receive an IRS form 1099 at the end of the calendar year and a copy of such form will be filed with the IRS.
Disqualification; Fraud. Failure to comply with any published contest rules is grounds for immediate disqualification from the contest. CCG reserves the right to disqualify any entry not conforming to the rules of the promotion at any time. CCG and its contest and promotional partners assume no responsibility for entry fraud committed by any entrant. In the event it is determined that an ineligible entrant wins a prize, CCG reserves all rights to the ownership and return of the prize and all costs associated with remedying any prize award to an ineligible entry or entrant.
Release. By participating in the contest, each participant and winner waives any and all claims of liability against CCG, its employees and agents, the contest’s sponsors and their respective employees and agents, for any personal injury or loss which may occur from the conduct of, or participation in, the contest, or from the use of any prize. In order to receive a prize, participants must sign an official waiver form provided by CCG. IN NO EVENT WILL CCG, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR AFFILIATES BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF ANY PARTICIPANT’S PARTICIPATION IN THE CONTEXT.
Conduct and Decisions. By participating in the contest, participants agree to be bound by the decisions of CCG. Persons who violate any rule, gain unfair advantage in participating in the contest, or obtain winner status using fraudulent means will be disqualified. Unsportsmanlike, disruptive, annoying, harassing or threatening behavior is prohibited. CCG will interpret (and may waive) these rules and resolve any disputes in its sole discretion and CCG’s decisions shall be final. If the conduct or outcome of the contest is affected by human error, any mechanical malfunctions or failures of any kind, intentional interference or any event beyond the control of CCG, CCG reserves the right to terminate this contest, or make such other decisions regarding the outcome as CCG deems appropriate.
Miscellaneous. Void where prohibited. Odds of winning depend upon the number of participants. Each winner must submit proof of eligibility and sign CCG’s release form to claim the prize. CCG may substitute prizes, amend the rules or discontinue the contest at any time as announced. CCG disclaims any responsibility to notify participants of any aspect related to the conduct of the contest. All entries become the property of CCG and will not be returned.
