Competition Terms & Conditions
1. Terms and conditions together with any rules set out in Competition Notices as explained are the Competition Term, together to be defined as the "Competition", unless otherwise expressly stated. By entering a Competition, entrants agree to be bound by these Terms.
2. By entering a competition, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions along with any other rules which relate to a Promotion. Specific Rules might include entry instructions and any other specific details, rules or conditions relating to a particular Promotion. Competition rules may also be published on our promotion partners’ website, social media platforms.
3. In these terms and conditions, ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ and ‘Promoter’ all mean Gorgeous Community Radio CIC (registered company: 13554451). The Promoter’s address is Gorgeous Radio, 27 School Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 4LR. Our ‘promotion partners’ are third parties who operate promotions with us or on our behalf.
Start and end date/time:
4. Each Promotion will start immediately unless a later start date/time is advertised. The closing date/time for a Promotion will be made clear in the Specific Rules. All competition times will be based on UK time.
5. Each Promotion will be open to individuals who live in the UK and aged 18 or over unless the Specific Rules or other promotional materials or announcements specify a different geographic region or a different minimum age.
7. Candidates in any General, national or local Election will be ineligible during an Election or Referendum Period (as defined in the Ofcom Broadcasting Code), to enter any competition.
8. To enter, follow the entry process for the relevant competition, which will usually be explained in the Specific Rules and/or promotional materials or announcements. Entries received outside of the opening and closing times of the Promotion will not be accepted but may still be charged (where there is a cost to enter).
9. You may only make a maximum of one entry into each Promotion (unless the Specific Rules for a particular Promotion expressly set a higher maximum number of entries for that Promotion).
10. There is no charge to enter a Promotion unless stated otherwise. However, if entry is made via text message, MMS or telephone call, your network provider will usually charge according to their standard rate or deduct it from your allowance. Standard rate text messages to competition short-codes are not normally included in ‘inclusive’ packages and may be charged. If you are not the bill payer, you must obtain the bill payer’s permission before entering.
11. We accept no responsibility for entries that haven’t reached us. (postal, telephone, text message, online or social media entries not received as a result of network issues, technical faults or for any other reason.)
12. In the event that any entrant is disqualified from the Competition, we may decide whether a replacement contestant should be selected. In this event, any further entrant will be selected on the same criteria as the original entrant and will be subject to these Terms.
13. For any on-air competitions, all timings including the closing time are as broadcast on the station's DAB platform. If you are listening via a smartphone or tablet, please remember that the stream can be delayed behind the DAB broadcast due to differences in network speeds and/or the advertising we may serve to listeners on IP enabled devices and other factors. We cannot take into account any delay from listening via an IP enabled device, and the deadline will be as on the DAB platform. For podcasts and non-live broadcasts, note that the deadline will probably have passed, so check before entering.
18. If you win a prize, we will notify you within twenty-eight days of the end date of the Promotion. To claim the prize, respond to the notification within the deadline set out in the Specific Rules and follow the instructions which will be provided to you.
1. Prize winners will be chosen at random unless specified otherwise in the Competition Notice, from all qualifying entries within 28 days of the closing date specified in the Competition Notice.
2. Prize winners will be notified within the time specified on the Competition Notice. Return of any prize notification as undeliverable or failure to reply as specified in the notification within the time stated therein may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner. If more than one prize is awarded only one prize per entrant will be awarded. Competition winners' names may be published on our website or you can write to the radio station, naming the specific competition and including a self-addressed stamped envelope for a list of winners. Claims for prizes must be made in the manner and within the time specified on the Competition Notice. Failure to claim a prize within this time or in the manner specified may result in disqualification and selection of an alternate winner.
3. Prizes are non-transferable and there is no cash alternative. We reserve the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value at any time.
4. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to request proof of identity in the form of your passport, driving licence and a utility bill bearing your address.
