Unless specified otherwise on the Site, all users must be at least 21 years of age and a legal resident of Florida. This Site is designed and targeted to U.S. audiences and is governed by and operated in accordance with the laws of the U.S. We make no representation that this Site is operated in accordance with the laws or governed by other nations. By your participation in the you certify that you are at least 21 years of age and a resident in the U.S. If you are located in the European Union or elsewhere outside of the U.S. and you attempt to participate contrary to our policy that only U.S. residents are eligible, you will be disqualified. The transfer of your Personal Information is at your own risk and initiative, and you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. Please be aware that any Personal Information you transfer to us will be transferred to and processed in the U.S and subject to U.S. law. By attempting to participate, 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 participants are required to provide true, current, complete and accurate Personal Information when prompted and we will reject and delete any entry that we believe in good faith to be false, fraudulent, or inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

We use your Personal Information to facilitate the campaign which includes sharing your Personal Information with Participating Stations. (We explain below in the next section what our policy is for the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information to the Southern Chevrolet Dealers)

We will not sell, exchange, rent, lease or otherwise disclose your Personal Information to other third party marketers or any such persons that are not associated unless it is necessary to: 1) conform to regulatory and legal requirements or to comply with legal process; 2) to protect the safety and security of our users, employees, or property; 3) to defend the rights of the Site, the Owner or the Operator; or 4) to enforce the Terms of Use Agreement.

It is also necessary that we share your Personal Information with Operator, the specialist that provides internal support to Site operations and activities and/or for Site design, development, hosting and operations including maintenance, management, and storage of Personal Information. We require Operator to also protect your privacy and not disclose your Personal Information to third party marketers that are not associated with the program. Additionally, such providers are not to use your Personal Information for their own marketing or promotional purposes.

In the event that the assets of Owner or Operator is sold or transferred, merged with a different company or entity, restructured, or subject to other fundamental corporate changes, each reserves the right to disclose any and all databases compiled from Personal Information collected for fulfillment purposes.


To participate, you are required to provide the following Personal Information: your first and last name, home address, email address, telephone number, date of birth and vehicle preferences.

Unless stated otherwise, we do not knowingly request contact information for a mobile phone, text messaging or any wireless device that includes a domain name address (such as “.net” or “.com”) as part of the contact information. Federal law prohibits the sending of commercial email messages directly to a wireless device that uses a domain name, unless you have first given your express consent and been informed about other regulatory requirements. We may inadvertently collect a wireless device number that includes a domain name when you register. However, we will not knowingly use that contact information for sending commercial email. We reserve the right to respond to user inquiries or requests sent via a wireless device that uses a domain name as such messages are not deemed to be commercial email and therefore, are not regulated by Federal law. However, when “computer to phone” commercial emails are prohibited by law, we may reject your wireless device contact information when such information is submitted for certain Site features or services. We will attempt to notify you if we will need new contact information.


When we plan to share your Personal Information with the Southern Chevrolet Dealers, you will receive such notice on the Site. However, please be informed that Southern Chevrolet Dealers may not have the same privacy policies as the Site. Therefore, we will ask you for your consent first to receive marketing information directly from the Southern Chevrolet Dealers. You will need to check the “Opt-in” click boxes located on the registration area.

We are not responsible for removing your Personal Information from third party lists or entities which you have previously authorized us to share your information. You will need to contact those entities directly.


The use of cookies is an industry standard and they are currently used on most websites, including this Site. Cookies are a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website server either to your browser or temporary storage of a your computer so that the website administrator or a third party operational service provider may identify the computer and passively track your activities on the Site. Image tags work in conjunction with cookies and are small image files that may be located on select pages of our Site, or with-in web-based email newsletters that we may send. (Image tags are also called web beacons, web bugs, clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs.) Tracking is important because we can better understand what parts of the Site are used the most. We may share the information we receive from cookies and image tags with third-parties and the Southern Chevrolet Dealers in aggregate form, which means that such information generally does not contain specific Personal Information about any one visitor. In short, cookies and image tags collect a user’s Internet protocols and server information. Such data files allow our Site to remember your web browser when you visit our Site and are necessary tools for quick and efficient access to the Sweepstakes materials. A cookie will not allow the Site to learn any Personal Information (such as your real name and email address) that you have not otherwise disclosed. Cookies and image tags allow the Site to remember important information that will make the Site easier for you to use and helpful in our administration of various activities. We do not use cookies or image tags to collect other Personal Information unless you give us permission to do so.

You should be aware that different rules might apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information by other third parties in connection with their advertisements, promotions and other websites you encounter on the Internet. The use of cookies and other technology by these third parties is within their control and not ours. Even if we have a relationship with the third party, we do not control those sites or their policies and practices regarding your Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not cover any use of Personal Information that a third party or an Advertiser may collect from you. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions directly of them in this regard. Also see our section called “Advertising, Other Third Party Content And Hyperlinks.”

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. This is done through your browser. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features at our Site that make your Internet experience more efficient and enjoyable and some of our features and services will not function properly.


We also reserve the right to monitor and edit any Personal Information about our users, including information about the use of website activities and services, the contents of users’ email and messages for internal purposes, and when necessary, to disclose to law enforcement personnel, and/or the employer and/or Internet Service Provider of a user that is not in compliance with the Terms of Use Agreement or Privacy Policy. We will take such measures if we believe it is necessary to protect the security, integrity, and operations of this. Without disclosure of Personal Information about individual users, we may provide aggregate statistics about our users, traffic patterns and related website information to Advertisers, reputable third party vendors or marketing companies.


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 as required by law. 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 underage and does not meet the age eligibility requirements of this Site. Any false or fraudulent registration or entry from a minor (under the age of 18 or the age of adulthood in your State of residence) will be deemed to be ineligible and will disqualify the minor from the receipt of a prize, benefit, or other participation.

Except to meet Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), 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. This policy is consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”) which governs the online collection of Personal Information from children under the age of 13.


We do not generally keep email correspondence, except for those emails that relate to the on-air programs or operations of radio station. As required by the FCC, if any part of your email correspondence relates to a radio station’s programming or operations, the station’s licensee 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, be informed that your Personal Information contained in certain emails, including Personal Information knowingly received from a child under the age of thirteen, will be disclosed to the general public. (Please see our Children’s Privacy Policy section for details.) We request that you not place any Sensitive Personal Information in your email correspondence to the Site that pertains to station programming or operations. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for Sensitive Personal Information that is improperly disclosed in emails that are made available to the general public in compliance with FCC regulations.


This Privacy Policy does not cover third party advertising or third party content that may be present on the Site. This Site may provide banner and general advertising from third parties, in addition to other content provided by the Southern Chevrolet Dealers, Operator or other advertisers. Users may from time to time purchase goods or services offered through, 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 that third party and do not involve the Site. Also, such third parties may not have the same privacy policies that we do and you are encouraged to read their privacy policy first. (Also see our section called “Cookies and Image Tags”).

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 Agreement, Velocity 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. The presence of a link to a third party website does not constitute or imply our endorsement, recommendation, or sponsorship of the third party content, goods, or services available through, or contained on, the Site. By use of this Site, you have agreed that you will use the hyperlinks to third party sites at your own risk.


We, along with Operator, conduct the collection, management, maintenance and storage of listener or website user information in a secure and commercially reasonable manner using acceptable industry standards of security technology and practices (such as electronic security systems and password protections) to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of Personal Information. We also request that our operational service providers take such precautions. databases are accessible only by authorized personnel.

However, please note that when users transmit Personal Information over an unsecured Internet connection, the Site is not responsible for the security of that information during the transmission stage as your email or registration could be copied or intercepted by unknown third parties. Therefore, you understand, acknowledge, and agree that you transmit certain Personal Information over this Site at your own risk.


Generally, you may review, update or delete your Personal Information collected by the Site. You may also correct factual inaccuracies. Certain types of Personal Information that are necessary to check eligibility, such as birth date or age, cannot be deleted, but may be modified with sufficient verification of the new information. Note that we reserve the right to terminate or delete any entry if we believe the Personal Information submitted was knowingly false or fraudulent.

To review, update or delete your Personal Information collected by the Site, please email the Site’s Privacy Administrator at To have access to your Personal Information, you must provide proof of identification such as full name, street address, city/state and zip code, user ID and password, and/or information about your recent activity on the website. We reserve the right to deny access to any user if we believe there is a question about your identity. And if the burden or expense of providing access to your Personal Information is disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or if the legitimate rights of others would be violated, we may decide not to provide access to such information. In such cases, we will provide to you an explanation of why access cannot be provided and a contact person for further inquiries.
