Radio Stuff-up: The Importance of Clear Terms and Conditions

The Edge told a 43-year-old he was too old to go with them to the races.

Don’t you hate it when businesses think they can just slap together some terms and conditions and then not even follow them correctly? It peeves me off, I tell ya!

In New Zealand recently, a radio station hosted a competition to win a trip to the races. Nowhere in the terms and conditions did it state there was an age restriction. So when a 43 year old man was told he COULDN’T use the prize because he was TOO OLD, there was a bit of an uproar!

Different countries have some very unique laws surrounding competitions and sweepstakes. Marden-Kane Digital Promotions has quite an interesting write-up on the subject, listing different countries and their lesser-known rules.

A good example is that in Sweden, all games of chance are banned! (but skilled-based competitions are allowed – sounds right up my alley, maybe I should move to Sweden!).

One tip though, make sure you’re not COPYING these directly for your own use. They’re just to give you ideas, not to steal!
