These standard contest rules apply to all of CMR's contests / games and listener participation promotions. They may be amended or varied from time to time. Special rules may apply to particular contests / games or listener participation activity, in which case an addendum to these rules will be made for that contest.
1. THE PROMOTER
Country Music Services Pty Limited – operators of CMR and CMR Online is referred to in this document as the “Promoter”.
No contest / game or listener participation activity (“activity”) is open to:
a) Employees of, or contractors to, the Promoter or any of its agencies involved with this activity;
b) The spouse, de facto spouse, parent, natural or adopted child, and sibling (whether natural or adopted by a parent), of such employees and contractors (whether or not they live in the same household);
c) Contestants discovered to have used or attempted to use any more than one name on order to qualify to win any activity run by the Promoter except in the case of a legal change of name;
d) Contestants or anyone from the same family/household who have won a prize/prizes from CMR in the prior 60 days;
g) Contestants who have won a major “annual” prize in the past 2 years (that is – winners must wait for two years and enter on the third year after winning a major “annual’ prize). (An “annual” prize is a major prize awarded once a year)
All contestants acknowledge that the Promoter can rely on Clause 2 even if the Promoter only learns of a person’s ineligibility after the Promoter has appeared to award the prize to the ineligible person. Return of the prize or payment of its value to the Promoter will be required by the Promoter if this occurs.
a) Generally prizes will be distributed via Australia Post. In specific cases other arrangements may be used.
b) All prizes must be collected within 3 months from the date of winning. Prizes not collected within that period will be redistributed into the prize pool of the associated station and used for alternative contest giveaways.
c) All prize items are valued inclusive of GST. The Promoter takes no responsibility for any variation in item values. Any taxes which may be payable as a consequence of a winner receiving the prize are the sole responsibility of that winner.
d) Prizes are non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash.
e) If the specified prize becomes unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, the Promoter may substitute a prize of like or equal value.
f) Unless otherwise specified, the class of travel for a travel prize incorporating an airfare is economy class.
g) In relation to prizes involving participation in any activity:
i) The Promoter and its employees and agents will be fully released from and indemnified by the winner in respect of any claim for accident, injury, property damage or loss of life in connection with a winner’s participation in the prize.
ii) A winner may substitute a proxy to take part on their behalf – full details of proxy will need to be provided to the promoter prior to activity commencement
iii) If a winner is under the age of 18, their parent/guardian will need to sign the indemnity and consent to winner’s participation in (specified) contest for prize.
4. PRIZE DISTRIBUTION
Prizes will only be distributed to the winner.
The promoter will not be responsible for damage or loss that can be attributed to others once the prize has been lodged with the distributor.
Upon request by the Promoter a copy of the general contest rules and/or a signed receipt and acknowledgement must be signed and endorsed by any winner to indicate his/her understanding and acceptance of these terms.
Prizes will only be awarded following winner validation and verification. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Acceptance of a prize constitutes permission for the Promoter to use a winner’s name, locality of residence, recording of winner’s voice and likeness for advertising and promotional purposes without compensation, unless otherwise prohibited by law.
6. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY
The Promoter takes no responsibility for the loss of prizes due to incorrect or imprecise delivery details provided by an entrant.
The Promoter makes no representations or warranties as to the quality/suitability/merchantability of any of the goods/services offered as prizes. To the extent permitted by law, the Promoter is not liable for any loss suffered or sustained to personal property and including, but not limited to consequential (including economic) loss by reason of any act or omission, deliberate or negligent, by the Promoter, or its servants or agents, in connection with the arrangement for supply, or the supply, of any goods or services by any person to the prize winner(s) and, where applicable, to any persons accompanying the winners.
A winner (or his or her guests/parent/guardian as appropriate) may be required to sign and return any liability release provided by the Promoter and/or its contractors as a condition of the prize being awarded. Failure to return the signed releases and indemnities will result in the entitlement to the prize being forfeited and a selection of another winner.

All entries (whether in written, audio or visual form, or a combination of those) become and remain the property of the Promoter (subject to the limits contained in the Privacy Statement).

The Promoter assumes no responsibility for any error, defect, delay, theft or unauthorised access to or alternation of entries. Subject to any written directions given under the applicable law, if for any reason, the competition is not capable of operating as planned, including infection by computer viruses, tampering, unauthorised intervention, fraud or any other causes beyond the control of the Promoter which corrupts or affects the administration, security, fairness, or proper conduct of the competition, then the Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend this competition.
The Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual for:
a) tampering with the entry process, including exceeding any limitation on the numbers of entries, or any other process as determined by the Promoter that in any way affects the fairness of the promotion;
b) tampering with the operation of the competition or web site;
c) acting in violation of these terms and conditions;

Participation in the competition constitutes the entrant’s unconditional agreement to and acceptance of these General Competition Entry Rules. These rules may change from time to time.
The Entrant is responsible for insuring his or her familiarity with the General Competition Entry Rules at the time of participation. The Promoter’s decision not to enforce a specific restriction does not constitute a waiver of that restriction or of the General Competition Entry Rules generally.
Where the Promoter has special contest conditions or rules in relation to a particular contest, then they will prevail to the extent of any inconsistency between those special conditions and these General Competition Entry Rules.
