The pre-bid phase

10. Pre-bids may be taken in advance of the Live Phone Auction Period, during the Pre-Bid Phase. To make a pre-bid, send an email with the prize as the subject line to prizes@makesomenoise.com

We will need:

Your full name

Your telephone number with dialling code

Your location e.g. London, Derby, etc

Your pre-bid amount in pounds and pence

11. Pre-bids are not revealed to other Participants during the Pre-Bid Phase but may be mentioned during the Live Phone Auction Period. In making a pre-bid, this enters you into the Auction process and puts you in the running for a chance to win the Auction lot, although this is not guaranteed and will depend on other bids made both during the Pre-Bid Phase and the Live Phone Auction Period.

12. In placing a pre-bid during the Pre-Bid Phase, you must be aware that your pre-bid will be considered as a legitimate entry into the overall Auction. If your pre-bid is not as high in value as another pre-bid made during the Pre-Bid Phase or you are out of the running you will need to call in on the Auction Phone Line during the Live Phone Auction Period in order to make a higher bid, if you still wish to participate.

13. If your pre-bid is the highest bid made both during the Pre-Bid Phase and the Live Phone Auction Period, you will be considered the winner of the lot and will be obliged to pay the amount that you agreed to in making the pre-bid.

14. The Participant who has placed the highest pre-bid will be contacted once the Pre-Bid Phase closes on the phone number they provided upon entering, to verify the validity of the bid and their eligibility. You must answer your telephone when we contact you. Someone else cannot answer the phone, participate or accept the call on your behalf. If: (i) you fail to answer the phone; (ii) someone else answers the phone; (iii) the call goes to voicemail; (iv) the call becomes disconnected; (v) you are not (or do not seem to us to be) in a position to safely and/or lawfully take or remain on the call (for example, if you are or seem to be driving); or (vi) you are not audible or intelligible or we are not able to conduct a conversation with you, your pre-bid may be disqualified and we reserve the right to move on to the Participant who made the second-higest pre-bid in the Pre-Bid Phase, and so on.

15. If there are two Participants who have matched the highest pre-bid amount, both will be contacted and invited to make a second bid.

16. You will not be contacted following the Pre-Bid Phase unless you have placed the higest pre-bid. If you are not contacted and would like to participate in the Auction then you must listen to Classic FM during the Live Phone Auction Period and call the Auction Phone Line to place another bid.

The live bid phase

17. During the Live Phone Auction Period, you must call the Auction Phone Line only when directed to do so by a presenter on-air and only during the specified periods. Calls to this number are charged at local rates from a BT landline, other networks and mobile costs may be higher. Please check with your service provider for more details and charges. If you are not the bill payer, you must obtain the bill payer’s permission before entering.

18. The highest Bid received during the Live Phone Auction Period will be announced on air to the extent permissible until such time that the Bid has been beaten (if applicable). The highest genuine bid received from any Participant at the end of the Live Phone Auction Period will secure the item. Where a bid is successful, the Participant will be contacted by a representative of Global.

19. If at the end of the Live Phone Auction Period there are two or more active bidders, a final silent bid will be taken from each active bidder, and the highest silent bid will secure the item.

20. Full details of all Auctions will be available on Classicfm.com including any specific terms & conditions for each lot.

Eligibility and payment:

21. The Promotion is only open to residents of the UK aged 18 and over and who are based in the UK at the time of entry. We reserve the right to verify the eligibility of all entrants if necessary; we may ask to see photo identification once the auction has closed and you are the highest bidder.

22. Payment for an item must be made by debit or credit card. All Participants must ensure that, prior to placing a bid, they are able to pay for any item which they wish to bid for.

23. Ownership of the items successfully bid for or purchased shall not pass on to the successful Participant until such time as payment for the item has been received by Global and delivery has taken place.

24. Notwithstanding that a successful bid has been received, in the event that we discover that (i) the Participant was ineligible to make a bid for an item, or (ii) that the Participant should have been declared invalid for any other reason (at our absolute discretion), we reserve the right to reject the bid. In such circumstances, we reserve the right to offer the prize to the second highest bidder.
