Need help with our website?
It's annoying isn't it? You just want to work your way around our website and then suddenly nothing works the way it should.
Well, there are a few things you need to check first...
What browser are you using?
This website is designed and tested to work with the following web browsers;
Mozilla Firefox - current version
MS Internet Explorer 8 and up
Apple Safari - current version
Opera - curent version
Google Chrome - current version
You'd be surprised how many problems with our website are caused by people using Internet Explorer 6 or 7. IE6 and IE7 are very outdated browsers that are not designed to work with modern websites and web-based applications. IE6 had been superseded over ten years ago, plus there have been dozens of updates to it since then as well. Before you ask us to fix something that doesn't work for you, please make sure you are using one of the browsers above... and please get rid of Internet Explorer 6. It is so old and unsecure that even Microsoft don't support it any more!
Spelling errors and typos
Um... why is my intellectual property on your website?
All commercial radio stations operate under the authority of licences issued by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA). Ownership and use of those licences is subject to a number of different legislative instruments as well as the general law.
This page provides an overview of the industry-specific legislation which regulates programs broadcast by commercial radio stations. The overriding purpose of this legislation is to ensure that all programs broadcast on commercial radio stations are in accordance with prevailing community standards. The tiered approach to regulation. A tiered approach is used to regulate commercial radio programs.
The Codes deal with other subject matter not dealt with by the licence conditions. The Codes are registered by ACMA and are therefore binding on all commercial radio licensees.
See the links to the Codes at the bottom of this page.
ACMA also has residual power, under the BSA, to determine program standards if it is satisfied that the Codes are not operating to provide “appropriate community safeguards” in relation to specific subject matter dealt with in the Codes.
Once issued, program standards operate as licence conditions binding on all commercial radio licensees. The BSA. The BSA defines a commercial radio broadcasting service as one that: provides programs that appear to be intended to appeal to the general public; provides programs that can be received by commonly available equipment and are made available free to the general public; is usually funded by advertising revenue; and is operated for profit or as part of a profit-making enterprise.
All commercial radio broadcasting licences must be operated in accordance with the licence conditions set out in Schedule 2 of the BSA. A breach of these licence conditions can result in the licensee being ordered pay to fines or the suspension or cancellation of the broadcasting services licence.
The Codes were last reviewed and registered by ACMA in June 2010. This followed a 3 year period of consultation between Commercial Radio Australia and it’s members, the general public and ACMA. An additional Code has nw been registered - Code 9:
Live Hosted Entertainment Programs The Codes deal with, amongst other things, taste and decency, accuracy and fairness in news and current affairs, advertising, Australian music, broadcasts of emergency information and a formal complaints handling process.
For more information on the complaints process under the Codes, please see below.
On 21 November 2000, following the Commercial Radio Enquiry, the Australian Broadcasting Authority determined three program standards - see links below. The program standards are: the Broadcasting Services (Commercial Radio Advertising) Standard 2000; the Broadcasting Services (Commercial Radio Current Affairs Disclosure) Standard 2000; and the Broadcasting Services (Commercial Radio Compliance Program) Standard 2000.
Complaints process under the Codes. Code 5 of the Codes contains a complaints handling process. A listener who reasonably believes that a commercial radio program has breached the Codes is able to complain to the relevant station.
The complaint cannot be anonymous, must be in writing and must provide enough information to enable the station to investigate the complaint and provide a response.
The reference to ‘in writing’ means a letter, email or fax. A station which receives a proper written complaint has a mandatory obligation to respond to that complainant within a set period of time. If the complainant is not satisfied with the station’s response, he or she can refer the complaint to ACMA.
Please do not send any complaints to Commercial Radio Australia as they have no role to play in the complaints process.

We will only collect sensitive information about you with your consent (unless we are otherwise allowed or required by law to collect that information).

However this information is only used for the purpose for which it was collected, which is generally associated with a website or radio station promotion or competition.

No charges apply to accessing and providing you with this information. If we cannot provide you access, we will provide a statement of our reasons.
At times we may need up to 30 days to provide this information back to you due to the complexity of computer systems and off-site storage of hard-copy records (where they are used).
How do we manage privacy issues about credit with our clients?
When you enter into a contract with us as a client, we’ll collect and hold your name, address, date of birth and drivers' licence number.

In addition, you can request the CRB not to use your credit reporting information for the purposes of pre-screening of direct marketing by a credit provider.
The CRB may include information that we provide to it in reports that they provide to other credit providers to assist them to assess your credit worthiness. If we do a credit check on you with CRB, the CRB will generate a credit score for you and make this available to us. We’ll use this information to help us assess your credit worthiness, and we will keep a record of whether you passed or failed the credit check (based on our credit criteria) but we will not keep the credit score generated for you by the CRB.

identification information about you
the fact that you have applied for credit and we are a credit provider to you
advice about payments more than 60 days overdue which are ‘in collection’ that we are permitted to report to the CRB
that, in our opinion, you have committed a serious credit infringement
that credit provided to you has been paid or otherwise discharged
Notification to the CRB that any of your outstanding payments are no longer overdue will only be made following payment of the outstanding amount including any accrued interest.
You’re entitled to access and seek the correction of the credit-related personal information that we hold. If you have a complaint about the handling of your credit-related personal information you can contact our Privacy Officer.

1 - General Competition Rules
1.1 - Grant Broadcasters Pty Ltd (ABN: 65 000 667 470) (GB) operates a number of radio stations across Australia of which the station referred to in this website is one. Grant Broadcasters may conduct competitions from time to time pursuant to which prizes of money or other property are made available to eligible persons (as set out in clause 3.1) ("Grant Broadcasters Competition").
1.2 - These rules say who is eligible to enter a Grant Broadcasters Competition, how prizes will be awarded and how they may be claimed ("General Competition Rules"). In addition to the General Competition Rules, other specific terms and conditions may also apply to particular Grant Broadcasters Competitions ("Specific Competition Rules"). Any Specific Competition Rules applicable to any particular Grant Broadcasters Competition will be posted on www.Grant Broadcasters.com.au ("Web-Site") and available upon request from Grant Broadcasters reception, during normal business hours, located at the location specified in the contact section of this website.

A decision of Grant Broadcasters is binding and conclusive and will not be challenged on the grounds that Grant Broadcasters failed to act reasonably, fairly, in good faith or otherwise in accordance with the principles of procedural fairness. A decision of Grant Broadcasters will not be challengeable even if it can be demonstrated that Grant Broadcasters made a decision which was wrong, based on a factual error or an irrelevant or irrational consideration.
