General Terms & Conditions (“General Contest Rules”)
No one likes extensive rules and regulations, but you need to be aware of how it works so here are our General Terms & Conditions.
The General Contest Rules apply to all Create Consult Research, ThePanel.io and It’s My Station contests. Like all things, our General Contest Rules can be amended or varied by Create Consult Research Pty Ltd ABN 93 606 213 450 (herein referred to as “ CCR”), thepanel.io ABN 24 202 488 727 (herein referred to as “ TPIO”) and Its My Station ABN 24 202 488 727 (herein referred to “IMS”), collectively referred to as “us”, “we” or “our”.
We may also have times when specific Terms and Conditions may apply to particular contests, in that case we will let you know as they will be an addition to these General Contest Rules.
If you have any questions, please contact Create Consult Research.
