General Program Description
The I-100 (Cayuga Radio Group) text messaging program is intended to provide listeners with the ability to contact I-100 via SMS from their cellular telephones with the intent of entering contests. All Messages sent to and from I-100 FM are identified by the SHORTCODE, 77000.
Any message sent from I-100 will contain the following text: “Thank you for entering the I-100 mobile club. Standard text message rates apply.”
Listeners can OPT OUT of messaging by sending a message to 77000 containing the word “stop,” alternatively, listeners can visit www.i100rocks.com and opt out through this website. Under no circumstances will a listener be contacted who has declined to receive SMS messages or who has not indicated their willingness to participate.
Specific Contesting Programs
Listeners can send SMS text messages to I-100 and participate in various activities by including specific KEYWORDS in their messages sent to I-100. These specific messages are arbitrary and can change from time to time.
- CONTESTING KEYWORDS will enter the listener in a contest. No further action will be required from the listener. An example of the use of this Keyword type might be texting the word “Pizza” to short code 77000 to enter to win a free pizza.
General Texting Contest Rules
- For any and all contests with text message based entry, entrants will be required, as requested through on-air announcements, to provide certain information via a text message submission to 77000. Text message entries must meet all requirements set forth in the on-air announcements in order to be eligible. Winners will be determined in accordance with the criteria set forth in the on-air announcement in which entries were solicited.
- Decisions of I-100 management are final. Such decisions may include, but are not limited to, whether an entry adheres to the entry criteria, the time of entry receipt by I-100, the order in which text message entries are received, the eligibility of the entrant, and, in the event entry requires the submission of an answer or response, whether that answer or response is correct.
- Unless otherwise announced, I-100 will not require the payment of an additional fee to enter any contest in which the means of entry is the submission of a text message. Standard text messaging rates, as established by an individual’s wireless carrier, may apply, and I-100 assumes no responsibility for any fees or charges incurred for and associated with any text message sent to or from I-100. By participating in the contest, entrants agree that I-100 may contact that entrant at the telephone number from which the text message entry was received. Any and all fees arising out of the transmission of a text message shall be the sole responsibility of the entrant.
- By participating in a contest in which text message based entry is permitted, entrants acknowledge that text messages are distributed and delivered through third party providers; I-100 does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the delivery or timeliness of any text message entry. I-100 will at all times consider the time that a message is logged as arriving in its system as being the time of entry, regardless of the time at which the entrant attempted to send the entry and any technical problems or other complications that may have delayed its delivery. I-100, through its third party text messaging administrators, will store all messages received on its system.
- I-100 is not responsible for service outages, message failures, transmission delays or any other factor affecting the availability or performance of the text messaging service. I-100 further reserves the right to cancel, terminate or modify the contest if, in the sole discretion of the station, it is impossible or impractical to complete the contest as planned for any reason, including, but not limited to, infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention or technical failures of any sort.
- I-100, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry process or who is otherwise in violation of the rules. If I-100 determines that any entry contains false, misleading or fraudulent information, such entry will be disqualified. I-100 may require, on request, proof of identity as to the rightful owner of the phone number from which the text message entry was sent. I-100 reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry if that entry’s source and sender cannot be reasonably determined.
