Gateway 97.8: Competition Rules
These rules shall be binding on you when entering any prize competition(s), quizzes or draws
operated by Gateway 97.8, our sponsors or any company or website owned or controlled by us
from time to time.
In addition to these general competition rules, other specific terms and conditions may
also apply to a particular competition. We will post any such specific competition rules
on our website. Such specific terms, conditions or rules for a particular competition are
deemed to overrule or modify the general rules.
You must be over 18 years of age and resident in the UK to enter our competitions.
Valid entries require your name, email address and contact phone number.
Gateway 97.8 will only use your personal details for the purposes of administering the competition,
and will not publish them or provide them to any other party without your permission.
Limits on Submissions
Only one entry per person is permitted, unless otherwise stated. Automated entries will be invalidated; including multiple entries from the same IP, email address or telephone number range. Entries using false names or addresses or falsely representing age are disqualified. Winning claimants must be willing to provide additional proof of identity or address if requested by Gateway 97.8.
Gateway 97.8 will not be liable for any damage, loss or disappointment suffered by any person taking part or not being able to take part in a competition.
In the case of a prize draw, the first correct entry drawn will be the winner. The winner’s name will be drawn shortly after the closing time and date specified. The winner will be informed by email or telephone. We will display the winner’s name on air and publish it on the Gateway 97.8 website. Only winners may receive the prizes. Prizes are offered as stated and cannot be deferred or transferred. There will be no cash alternatives. Entrants must supply full details as required and comply with all rules to be eligible for the prizes.
No responsibility is accepted for fraudulent, inaudible or ineligible entries.
