Entrant Details

All entrants are solely and completely responsible for providing and maintaining the promoter with accurate contact, billing and delivery details on their account.

 

Prize

The promoter owns any prize offered from the time the competition is live until successful handover is completed. The prize will only be that as awarded at the time of the draw, unless the original prize is stolen or damaged. In this event, a cash alternative of the same value with be offered.

 

Competition

The competition is operated only by the promoter. The competition is open for entry to all persons aged 18 or over in the United Kingdom only; excluding the promoter, professional advisers or anyone else involved with the development or operation of the website or conducts administration of the competition in any way.

All entrants accept that their payment for each entry does not guarantee in any way that they will win a prize.

Only the completed entries which contain the correct answer will be entered into a competition.

As a condition on entering the competition, entrants must ensure that, by doing so, they do not contravene any laws in their country of residence. The promoter will not be liable in any way if an entrant enters the competition unlawfully.

By entering any competition entrants warrant that any information provided by them shall be accurate, current and true. The promoter reserves the right to disqualify an entrant if there are reasonable grounds to believe that the entrant has acted outside of these terms and conditions.

 

Entry

On answering the question, the entrant recognises that they must exercise knowledge, judgement and skill to provide the correct answer when entering a competition.

The maximum number of entries per entrant per competition is limited and stated on each competition page, although the promoters reserve the right to amend this as they deem suitable.

The maximum number of entries for a competition is ‘per person’, and includes website and postal entries.

To conclude an entry into the competition, an entrant will be asked to provide their contact details (including postal and e-mail addresses and a telephone number) and card payment details (for entry fee only). Once the entry is submitted, the entrants card payment will be securely and electronically approved.

All entries to the competition are final and no refunds shall be made at any time or for any reason, except in the case of entries received after the closing date or if the promoter cancels the competition.

Every entrant agrees that the typical requirement under the consumer protection (distance selling) regulations 2000 for goods and services ordered online to be supplied within 30 days will not apply to this prize competition.

 

Closing the competition

If all the advertised tickets are sold before the end date, the competition will be closed.

If the advertised number of entries for a competition do not sell out before the advertised competition end date, then a further 4 weeks may be added. The additional 4 weeks may be added a maximum of 3 times after which a decision will be made and announced. All existing entrants that have already entered that specific competition will be continued to be included in any competition extension.

If the competition does not reach the maximum advertised number of entries the draw may still go ahead, this will be at the promoters discretion and based upon whether the number of paid entries sufficiently covers their costs.

In the event of a cash alternative being given the Promoter will be entitled to use 35% of the Entry Fees to cover Marketing and Administration costs. The remaining balance minus expenses (ie, payment gateway fees, website hosting) will then be the cash alternative allocated to the winner of the competition. This method of cash alternative will also be offered if we are unable to offer the original prize of the competition. For example, if the original prize is damaged or stolen.

 

Selecting a winner

The winning entrant will be selected live on Facebook using Google’s random number generator.

All relevant details of the draw date and time will be confirmed once the competition has been concluded via Facebook and posted on the website. This decision will be made within 7 working days of the close of the competition.

If the promoter is unable to successfully contact a winner via phone, email or social media after 14 days of the competition winner being announced, the promoter reserves the right to select an alternate winner that will be randomly selected from all other successful entrants of that specific competition. This will again be completed live on Facebook using Google’s Random Number Generator. The original prize winner will no longer have claim to the prize once an alternate winner is selected and announced.

 

Warranty

The prize will come with no direct warranty from the Promoter. Manufacturers of internal components may support warranty claims in the event of a failure. The Promoter does not in any way guarantee the value of a prize. The entrant must make up their own decision through their own enquiries and advice before entering a competition.

Serial numbers of prizes, including any internal components of all prizes are documented and saved by the Promoter to prevent any unlawful behaviour.
