CT Lottery Official Web Site - Connecticut Lottery Social Media Participation Standards

 
Last updated July 22, 2013
Welcome!
Thank you for your interest in the Connecticut Lottery (“CT Lottery”).Although this policy applies to everyone who interacts with CT Lottery’s social media presence, you’re viewing this page because you either linked from the social media features on our own CT Lottery websites (such as blogs and comments sections) (“Internal Social Media Features”) or from comment sections, feeds and other elements of social media presence viewable on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, LinkedIn or any of the many other available external third party social media platforms (“External Social Media Presence”).

We use both Internal Social Media Features and an External Social Media Presence to see what you, our players and fans, are thinking and to communicate with you about CT Lottery’s games, programs, winners and partners and to offer information we believe will be useful.
BE CAREFUL!
Please keep in mind that, by design, all social media platforms are places of public information exchange, and you should have no expectation of privacy.Needless to say, the sites and platforms that host our External Social Media Presence are not controlled by the CT Lottery or the State of Connecticut and therefore their own, and not our or the states’ privacy policies and terms of use will apply.For instance, if you choose to provide information via registration or other interaction with such a site or platform, the information you provide is not maintained or controlled by the CT Lottery.

If you are concerned about the CT Lottery, or any other social media host or user, having access to information you share in your social media interactions, you should refrain from participating.
WE DON’T SEE EVERYTHING.
The comments and opinions expressed by users on social media are theirs alone and do not reflect the opinions of the CT Lottery, its management or its employees.We make a reasonable effort to try to monitor and keep an eye on the content posted on both Internal Social Media Features and our External Social Media Presence but we can’t see everything nor can we moderate or respond to all comments made.We hope that all users will follow applicable policies including this policy, especially the fine print legalese below, and generally act as mature and responsible users of our social media community.If they don’t, however, inappropriate comments may appear on our Internal Social Media Features and on our External Social Media Presence and remain there until they have been identified by us or called to our attention and we are able to work through the necessary procedures and technical processes to have them removed.
THE FINE PRINT LEGALESE.
We know most of our players and fans are trustworthy and responsible adults who just want to enjoy our social media community, but it is worth making sure all of our social media participants are aware of the important conditions and restrictions on use outlined in this section.

We will determine, on an individual basis and in our sole discretion, the criteria to be used in evaluating when these restrictions and conditions have been violated.Violations will be dealt with on a case by case basis, and will be subject to the editing or removal of content and/or the termination/blocking of access.
