Terms & Conditions

Before participating in the Competition a person (an “Entrant” or “you“) must read through and accept these Rules. If you enter the Competition you are deemed to have unconditionally accepted these Rules; if you do not agree to these the Rules and do not accept them then you are not eligible to participate in the Competition. These Rules are available on request from the Radio Station.

The Sponsors are Valero Energy (Ireland) Limited and Valero Marketing Ireland Limited.

1              Details of the Competition

1.1          Each day of the Duration, South East Radio’s Alan McGuire will encourage listeners of his show on the Radio Station to enter the Competition for their chance to win a Prize.

1.1.1            To enter the Competition an Entrant must send a text message with the keyword ‘fuel’ to 087-3737956, a telephone number registered to the Radio Station (the “Text Message Line“).

1.1.2            The Radio Station will give out the opening and closing times of the Text Message Line on air during the Duration.  Texts to the Text Message Line received by Entrants outside of these opening and closing times will not be valid entries, but may be charged for (see section 3 below).

1.1.3            Off-air the Radio Station will randomly select valid text entries to the Text Message Line and will start calling Entrants back and putting them on hold.  The number of valid text entries chosen by the Radio Station and called back will vary each day during the Duration.  All Entrants agree that the Radio Station may ask certain questions regarding eligibility to participate in the Competition. The Entrant must answer any questions regarding such eligibility truthfully and completely.

1.1.4            If an Entrant does not pick up when we call them then they forfeit their chance to play that day. The presenter will then speak to as many Entrants who have been put on hold as he can in 60 seconds.

1.1.5            Each Entrant who speaks to the presenter on air during those 60 seconds must answer with the words ‘Fuel Me Up, Texaco’ and will be asked a simple question. If an Entrant says this phrase and answers the question correctly then they win a Prize.  If they do not say the words ‘Fuel Me Up, Texaco’ or do not answer the question correctly then they do not win the Prize. The presenter will go to as many Entrants on hold as he can in 60 seconds.  Once the 60 seconds is up no more Entrants will be brought to air to play.  If Entrants have been put on hold and we do not pick their call up within 60 seconds then they do not win.

2              Prize

2.1          The number of Prize winners will vary each day of the Duration.

2.2          An Entrant may only win 1 Prize.

2.3          The “Prize” means a €50 Texaco fuel voucher which is redeemable against €50 of Texaco fuel at any Texaco Service station in the Republic of Ireland and is valid until the 31st March 2019.  This is the date of the expiry of the voucher and after that it cannot be redeemed for fuel.  The voucher is exchangeable as payment for Texaco fuel to the value of the voucher or as part payment for fuel of a higher value provided the winning Entrant at the same time pays the difference with cash and cheques.  No change will be given if a purchase is less than the value on the voucher.

2.4          All Prizes are non-transferable so may not be given, assigned or sold to another person.  Prizes cannot be exchanged for cash or other alternatives.

2.5          Neither the Radio Station nor the Sponsor accept any liability for Prizes which are lost, delayed or damaged in the post or otherwise not validly received by you.

2.6          In the event of unforeseen circumstances or circumstances outside the Radio Station’s or the Sponsor’ reasonable control, the Radio Station reserves the right to offer an alternative prize of equal value.  No cash will be offered.

2.7          In the event of there being more claims than Prizes available, the name of the valid claimants will go into a draw for the Prizes.

2.8          A Prize will not be awarded to a person who, for any reason, would not be allowed by law to purchase or use the Prize or where the supply of the Prize to that person would be unlawful.

2.9          Unless otherwise stated, all taxes, insurance, fees and surcharges on any Prize are the sole responsibility of the winner.

3              Costs related to entries

3.1          You should check with your network provider for details of any cost of text messages as different mobile phone service providers may vary.

3.2          Text messaging charges incurred as a result of entry to the Competition will be paid via your mobile phone service provider and will be detailed, where possible, on your mobile phone bill.

3.3          Any Entrant using a mobile which is not his or her own should ask for the permission of the person who pays the bill before sending a text message to the Text Message Line.

3.4          Entrants may submit text entries as many times as they like, but once they have been taken to air to play, their existing entries will be removed from the database and they will no longer be eligible to enter or be taken to air subsequently.

4.3          You must be a resident of Ireland to enter the Competition.

4.4          The Radio Station and the Sponsor reserve the right to verify the eligibility of all Entrants. Proof of eligibility to enter the Competition must be provided to the Radio Station upon request.

4.6          Any entries made, in the Radio Station’s or the Sponsor’ absolute discretion, via any form of machine assisted intervention enabling multiple entries will be disqualified.

5              General Terms and Conditions

5.1          It is agreed and accepted by you that, to the extent permitted by law, the Radio Station and the Sponsor shall have no liability whatsoever in respect of Competition.

5.2          You have made certain representations and warranties to the Radio Station and the Sponsor (both in these Rules and otherwise) in entering the Competition and/or applying for a place on the Competition.  The Radio Station and the Sponsor have relied on the accuracy and truth of such representations and warranties in granting a place to you.  Should the Radio Station, the Sponsor or their agents become aware of any fraud, dishonesty, deceit or similar action undertaken in connection with the Competition or otherwise, or any act or omission which might (in the Radio Station or the Sponsor’ opinion, which shall be final) have an adverse effect on the Competition, the Radio Station or the Sponsor each reserve the right in its absolute discretion (without notice to you and/or without giving reasons) to (i) forfeit your place on the Competition; or (ii) withdraw the Prize(s).

5.3          You agree to co-operate with and comply with all reasonable requests of the Radio Station, the Sponsor and their agents and employees (and in particular the health and safety team) in connection with the Competition and its broadcast.

6              Competition entries via text message and telephone

6.1          Please note, only Entrants with mobile phones using certain networks will be able to participate in Competitions using a Short Message Service (“SMS”), known commonly as a text message.  Users should check with their service provider for details of compatibility.  Neither the Radio Station nor the Sponsor will be liable in the event of telephone or text message entries not received as a result of network incompatibility, technical faults, or otherwise.

6.2          For the avoidance of doubt, you should follow the on-air instructions regarding the texting of Competition answers extremely carefully as the Radio Station cannot guarantee Competition entry for misspelt or incorrect text entries.

6.3          In the event that a telephone call to the Competition Entrant is disconnected for any reason before or during the Competition, the Radio Station reserves the right to select another Entrant to participate in the Competition.  In the event that an Entrant does not answer their telephone when contacted by a representative of the Radio Station in order to participate in the Competition, the Radio Station reserves the right to select another Entrant to participate in the Competition.

7              Claims to prizes

7.1          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.

7.2          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.

7.3          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. Where an Entrant fails to take part as required, or takes part but fails a subsequent test of skill which is required to win the Prize that Entrant will be deemed to have forfeited their opportunity to win the Prize and will be disqualified from the Competition.

8              Disqualification of Entries and Cancellation of the Competition

8.1          You acknowledge that the interests and good reputation of the Radio Station and the Sponsor are paramount and the Radio Station may, at its reasonable discretion, withdraw a place or require you to cease to have any involvement in the Competition if it believes it is in the best interests of the Radio Station or the Sponsor to do so.

8.2          The Radio Station reserves the right to immediately withdraw your place on the Competition or the Prize if it believes you to be in breach of any of your obligations, or representations and warranties, under the Rules or if you otherwise conduct yourself in a manner which is inappropriate or unsuitable (as determined in the reasonable discretion of the Radio Station).  You shall be responsible for any additional costs in this respect.

8.3          In the event of disqualification, the Radio Station reserves the right to select another Entrant to take part in the Competition.

9              The Radio Station and its Sponsor reserve the right to cancel, suspend or amend the Promotion at any time without giving prior notice and without liability to any Entrant(s).  The Promoter further reserves the right to cancel or to temporarily suspend the Promotion in the event of technical or other difficulties that might compromise the integrity of the Promotion without giving prior notice and without liability to any Entrant(s).
