Claims to prizes

  • In order to enable the Radio Station to correctly identify genuine claims and to eliminate non-genuine, deceitful or fraudulent claims, evidence of Competition entry must be made available if requested for the checking of such claim.  In addition, the Radio Station reserves the right to request proof of identity, age and address in the form of your passport or driving licence, and proof of your address in the form of a utility bill.  The Radio Station may also carry out an interview in order to validate such claims.  Interviews may be by telephone or in person with you and may be recorded. The Radio Station may also ask you to provide an in-studio recording to compare to your on-air win to provide proof of vocal identity.  If you refuse to provide any of these details or participate in or answer all questions raised in such an interview without good reason then your place in the Competition will be treated as invalidated and the Prize may be withdrawn.
  • If the Radio Station becomes aware of any fraud, deceit, misconduct or similar action during or in relation to the Competition which relates in any way to a claim, then that claim will not be met unless it is proven to the satisfaction of the Radio Station, that you had no actual or imputed knowledge of such fraud or deceit or similar action. For the avoidance of doubt (and without limitation), if you provide an incorrect name, age, address or other incorrect information in relation to the entry, then the Radio Station reserves the absolute right to treat that entry as invalid (whether or not such information comes to light before or after you have made the claim).  If the fraud, deceit, misconduct or other action is only discovered after the Prize has been released, you undertake to return the same (or provide compensation) to the Radio Station forthwith upon notification by the Radio Station.
  • Winners of Prizes will be notified on air and Prizes will be despatched by the Sponsor to the winners within a timely period.  The Competition requires Entrants to take part in a radio show in order to win the Prize.

In this event (and assuming a valid claim has already been made), the Radio Station will use reasonable endeavours to offer an alternative prize at some other time and/or if applicable some other destination, which may be accepted instead by you.  If such alternative prize is not accepted (or not made) you shall have no claim against the Radio Station in respect of the cancellation or delay of the Competition or Prize or for any expense or damage whatsoever incurred as a result thereof.
