Q Radio's BIG July Jetaway terms & conditions



These Competition terms and conditions are in addition to Q Radio Competition General Terms & Conditions and are referred to as the “Q Radio General Competition Terms & Conditions (On-air and Online)”. Specific competition terms and conditions and the General Terms are collectively referred to as “Terms”. Where there is a conflict between specific competition terms and Q Radio General Competition Terms & Conditions (On-air and Online), these terms prevail.

So that we can ensure the fairness of our Promotions, if you have won one prize during the previous three months then we reserve the right to withdraw from you, at our absolute discretion, any further prize awarded to you, in error or otherwise, during a period of three months (“Exclusion Period”). If you do enter any Promotion during the Exclusion Period, you may be disqualified and we reserve the right to: (i) select another entrant to participate in the Promotion; (ii) impose either a further exclusion period of twelve months from the date of your last entry attempt, or a longer or permanent ban, if we deem this necessary or appropriate; and/or (iii) disqualify your mobile phone number(s) and email addresses from future Promotions during this Exclusion Period. If you are disqualified, entry fees (if any) will not be refunded.

Decisions relating to competitions or the redemption of prizes are at the sole discretion of management and decisions are final – no further correspondence will be entered in to. This includes questions, concerns, tiebreakers, conflicts and disputes.
