SECU Kindness Campaign Sweepstakes Official RuleS

The SECU Kindness Campaign Sweepstakes (the “Sweepstakes”) is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited. There is no requirement to purchase any goods or services, pay any money, or submit to any sales promotion effort in order to be eligible to participate in the sweepstakes or receive the prize if you are a winner. Participation constitutes each entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to the terms and conditions of these official rules. Questions concerning any aspect of the Sweepstakes will be resolved by SECU management and any such resolution shall be final.

Eligibility:
The Sweepstakes is open only to individuals age 18 or older who are legal residents of Maryland. Officers, directors, officials, and committee members of SECU, and the immediate family members (spouse, siblings, and children, regardless of where they live) or members of the same households (whether related or not) of such officers, directors, officials, and committee members are not eligible.

Sponsor:
State Employees Credit Union of Maryland, Incorporated (“SECU” and/or “Sponsor”), 971 Corporate Blvd., Linthicum, MD 21090.

Timing:
The Sweepstakes begins at 12:00 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) on October 1, 2021 and will end at 11:59 PM ET on October 31, 2021 (“Sweepstakes Period”). SECU may end the Sweepstakes at any time, in its own discretion and without prior notification.

Entry Criteria:
No purchase is necessary. Receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes by visiting a SECU branch during the Sweepstakes Period and picking up a Kindness Kit, which includes an application form that must be completed online at www.secukindness.org, including entering the number of the Golden Ticket contained in the Kindness Kit. Only completed forms will be eligible, and only one (1) entry is permitted per person. SECU reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entry at any time which in SECU’s opinion does not comply with these Official Rules.

Alternate method of entry – To enter the Sweepstakes without completing SECU’s online form, entrants can visit a SECU branch during the Sweepstakes Period and a Member Advisor can complete the form on behalf of the entrant. Limit one (1) entry per person.

Only one (1) entry is permitted per person regardless of method of entry. All entries become the exclusive property of SECU, and none will be acknowledged or returned. Proof of sending or submission will not be deemed to be proof of receipt by SECU. SECU is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, illegible, or misdirected entries, which will be disqualified. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

Prizes:
During the Sweepstakes Period, by random drawing, sixteen (16) prizes of $1,000 each will be awarded to sixteen (16) different winners in the form of a check or deposit to a SECU checking account. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received during the promotion period.

Verification of Winners:
Potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Winners will be notified instantly at the time of submission and will be contacted by phone and/or email within 10 business days to claim their prize. SECU will contact the phone and/or email provided on the application form. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, is disqualified for any reason, or fails to claim the prize within the required time, SECU will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries. Winners will have up to thirty (30) days to claim their prizes from the date of notification by SECU that they have won. In order to receive the prizes, winners are not required to purchase any goods or services, or pay any money.
