Terms and Conditions of Sale

Some of our products and services have supplementary terms and conditions, and these should be read in conjunction with the terms and conditions of sale below. These supplementary terms and conditions are:

  1. Supplemental Terms and Conditions of Sale for Furniture
  2. Supplemental Terms and Conditions for Gift Vouchers, Gift Cards and eVouchers

Acceptance of Your Order

Your order on our website constitutes an offer to us to purchase the goods and or services in your basket for personal usage or consumption, and we will do our utmost to fulfil this order to the service levels you expect. So as to meet our service commitment to you, we will store your order and necessary personal details, obtain authorisation from your bank for the payment and make certain security checks on your identity and address (in line with our Privacy Policy).

We will not accept your order until such time that you are emailed to say that the products you have ordered have been dispatched, are ready for collection or, in respect of any services, begun. Once you receive such an email, we will be contracted to you, and your contract will be concluded upon delivery of the products or completion of the services.

Any products or services on the same order that we have not yet confirmed via email will not form part of that contract and will form part of a separate contract when the remaining products have been dispatched, are ready for collection or, in respect of any services, begun. Placing an order does not constitute a contract with us until we confirm the products as dispatched, ready for collection or services begun.

We reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason whatsoever, including, but not limited to, payment problems, product availability and product price or description error.

Age Restricted Products

Some of our products are restricted to persons over a certain age as laid down by law. We are not permitted to supply such products to persons who do not meet the minimum age required as stated below. If you are underage, you must not attempt to purchase these products through our website. By placing an order for any of the products detailed below, you are confirming that you (or the intended recipient) are the minimum age required by law:

1. Alcohol – any products containing alcohol may only be sold to persons over 18.
2. Knives and blades – may only be sold to persons over 18. (Please note, knives are currently not available on line).
3. DVDs / Blu-Rays – may only be purchased by persons at or over the age certification as displayed on the product.
4. Christmas crackers – may only be sold to persons over 12.
5. Party poppers and table torpedoes – may only be sold to persons over 16.
6. All other types of fireworks – may only be sold to persons over 18.
7. Liquor chocolates – may only be sold to persons over 16.

We operate a Think 21 policy in our English, Welsh and Irish stores and a Think 25 policy in our Scottish stores. If you are lucky enough to look under this age, please do not be offended if a member of staff asks you for proof of ID to establish that you are over the relevant age.

With regards to our Buy & Collect service, if you would like someone else to collect the order on your behalf and your order contains an age-restricted product (e.g. alcohol), we will not be able to provide your order to the person collecting if they are under the relevant legal age.

Quantity Restricted Products

Some of our products are restricted to a maximum number of units that you may order. If you select more than the maximum number allowed, we will have to cancel part of your order. For example, we will only allow you to purchase a maximum of 5 units of the same product of Dior (and in respect of Chanel products, only 3). If you select more than the allowed number of units, we will have to cancel the part of your order that exceeds the maximum allowed. In the event that this happens, one of our customer service team will contact you, and you will receive a full refund for those items which we are unable to send you. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Promotional Codes

We cannot retrospectively apply a promotional code to your order. If you place an order without correctly applying the promotional code, we will be unable to reimburse you the discount once the order has been placed. If you are having any difficulties in applying a promotional code or believe the code to be faulty, please contact our customer services team on 0845 602 1073.

Flash Sales

Occasionally, we may feature timed sales, offers or promotions on the website, during which certain exclusions may apply.


Buy Me, Try me

When you purchase one of our products with a ‘Buy me, Try me’ badge, you will also receive a free sample of the same product to test before you open the full size product (whilst stocks last). If you do not like the sample, simply return the unopened full size product, ensuring it is in its original condition and any seals on the full size product remain unbroken, to a House of Fraser store or online within 14 days to receive a full refund in accordance with our online refund policy. If the full size product has been tampered with in anyway, a refund will be declined, and it will be returned to you. This does not affect your statutory rights in respect of faulty or damaged goods.

Payment Problems

If, for any reason, there is a problem with collecting payment from your credit / debit card or other chosen payment method after we have confirmed receipt of your order, we will not be obliged to dispatch your order. Additionally, on some occasions, we may be unable to process an order. This may be due to: the item being out of stock or no longer available, your payment being declined, our identification of a pricing error or product description error or an unspecified technical error. If you are sure you are using a valid form of payment, please try again or use a different payment method.

Security Checks

As part of our policy to protect against the fraudulent use of credit / debit cards, we conduct security checks on all orders received. These checks can take various forms and may involve contacting you by telephone before we process your order. We also procure the services of various credit rating and fraud prevention companies, and we may share details of your order with them for the sole purpose of detecting and preventing fraudulent use of your payment cards (in line with our Privacy Policy).

Delivery

We have a wide range of delivery options and timescales, and charges will vary dependent on the type of product or service ordered. Full details can be found in our customer service pages under Delivery. Some items may be subject to different charges or timescales.

Risk in the products (e.g. damage or loss to the products) will remain with us until we deliver the goods to the address specified in your order or they are collected in store when the risk will pass to you immediately.

Provided you have notified us on the dispatch note that you wish to cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and the return also meets the terms of our returns and refund policy, you will be entitled to a full refund including delivery charges if applicable. We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges when only part of your order is being cancelled. Please see Cancellations for more information.

International Delivery

Deliveries outside the UK are subject to customs, legal, regulatory and certain practical restrictions. To comply with local legislation, you or the recipient may be required to pay additional taxes, fees or levies. Import duty or formal customs entry may apply to all products purchased from us. Please ensure that you enter the correct international delivery address and postcode. If the address is entered incorrectly or if customs duties or formal customs entry are required, the delivery may be delayed. We are unable to offer you any assistance if either issue arises.

Please note that many countries have import restrictions on certain products or materials. You are responsible for checking with the local customs authorities before placing an order for international delivery. We are unable to offer you any assistance in this regard. If the international delivery is outside the EU, it is advisable to keep your total basket value below the customs duty threshold of the destination country. Please check thresholds and duties for the international delivery address before placing an order. You are responsible for ensuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from us, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

Please also note that for international deliveries: any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages and the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labelling requirements.

Purchases will be completed in pounds Sterling. Your bank or credit card provider will determine and apply the then current exchange rate and may charge you administration costs. Please contact your bank or credit card provider before making a purchase to ensure you are aware of any such costs.

Cancellations

Since orders are dispatched promptly, we are unable to cancel orders after you have received your order confirmation email.

If your order has already been sent out, you may still cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and to do so, simply return your order to a store or our Online Returns centre within 14 calendar days marking the returns code on your dispatch note as cancelled. Otherwise, you should follow our online refund policy.

Provided you have notified us on the dispatch note that you wish to cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and the return also meets the terms of our returns and refund policy, you will be entitled to a full refund including delivery charges if applicable.

We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges where only part of your order is being cancelled.

You may cancel your contract in respect of the following items provided that it is in its original condition (including the packaging where it forms part of the goods, for example, boxed garments and gift items) and for hygiene or safety reasons have not been worn, opened, assembled or used and any seals on the product remain unbroken: cosmetics, duvets, DVDs, hats, hosiery, lingerie, mattress protectors, mattresses, men’s underwear, perfumery, personal grooming products, pillows and swimwear. Hats must have the returns policy swing ticket still attached.

You cannot cancel your contract in respect of pierced earrings, made to measure/order goods or perishable goods (e.g. foods) unless they are faulty, damaged upon delivery or incorrect. The following items have restrictions on whether they can be cancelled:

  1. Gift cards and vouchers – you may submit a cancellation or alteration request within 24 hours of the order being placed unless we have already dispatched your gift cards or gift vouchers.

If you wish to return your order outside of the cancellation time period specified above, please refer to our online refund policy.

Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, we reserve the right to refund you in full less any amounts due by way of compensation to either repair the goods or to cover any loss.

Online Refund Policy

We want you to be happy with every purchase you make. Accordingly, you may inspect the items you buy as if you were in one of our stores. However, whilst you are deciding whether to keep your purchases, you do have a statutory duty to take reasonable care of our goods. Therefore, please do not damage the items whilst you inspect them or try them on for size (this also includes the packaging where it forms part of the goods, for example, boxed garments and gift items). You must ensure that you return the original undamaged packaging along with the item/s you wish to return.

Where you have failed to take reasonable care of the goods, whether whilst in your possession or when returning them, we reserve the right to refund you in full less any amounts due by way of compensation to either repair the goods or to cover any loss.

If you wish to return a product you have purchased from our website, making note of any non-returnable products, you may do so:

  1. within 14 days to any House of Fraser store (excluding House of Fraser Outlets) from the day you receive the goods, and we will refund you in full via the original payment method used. If you return your purchase after this period but within 28 days, you may exchange the item for other merchandise or a House of Fraser Gift Card to the value of the item; or
  2. within 14 days by post or courier from the day you receive the goods, and we will refund you in full via the original payment method used. Where Gift Cards, Vouchers or eVouchers have been used as tender for an order (whether in whole or in part), any item that is returned within that order will be refunded first in eVouchers to the same value that was originally spent in Gift Cards or Vouchers. Any remaining balance will then be refunded to the payment card (if used). If you return your purchase after this period but within 28 days, we will issue you with a House of Fraser eVoucher to the value of the item. We are unable to exchange products by post, and you must return the item to a store if you wish to do so (see above).
  3. within 14 days by Collect+ from the day you receive the goods, and we will refund you in full via the original payment method used. Where Gift Cards, Vouchers or eVouchers have been used as tender for an order (whether in whole or in part), any item that is returned within that order will be refunded first in eVouchers to the same value that was originally spent in Gift Cards or Vouchers. Any remaining balance will then be refunded to the payment card (if used). If you return your purchase after this period but within 28 days, we will issue you with a House of Fraser eVoucher to the value of the item. We are unable to exchange products by Collect+, and you must return the item to store if you wish to do so (see above).

Please note:
The following items can only be returned within our refund policy providing they are in their original condition (including the packaging where it forms part of the goods, for example, boxed garments and gift items) and for hygiene or safety reasons have not been worn, opened, assembled or used and any seals on the product remain unbroken: cosmetics, duvets, DVDs, hats, hosiery, lingerie, mattress protectors, mattresses, men’s underwear, perfumery, personal grooming products, pillows and swimwear. Hats must have the returns policy swing ticket still attached.

Our online refund policy does not apply to furniture orders made on our website, and you may only return furniture if you wish to cancel your contract with us.
Please see Cancellations for further details. This does not affect your statutory rights in respect of faulty or damaged furniture.

Provided you have notified us on the dispatch note that you wish to cancel your order under the Distance Selling Regulations, and the return also meets the terms of our online refund policy, you will be entitled to a full refund including delivery charges if applicable.

We are unable to provide a refund of the delivery charges when only part of your order is being cancelled.

PayPal Purchases can be exchanged in store for a Gift Card to the value of the item or exchanged for another item available in store. If you would like to return items that were bought via PayPal for a full refund, you will need to return them to our Online Returns Centre within 14 days of receiving your order. Unfortunately, we cannot refund to your PayPal account if you return items to a store.

Where special conditions are attached to your purchase/order, this refund policy will not apply, and the special conditions will take priority (e.g. furniture, carpets, and some products from some of our third party partners).

No refund or exchange will be given without a receipt or other proof of purchase.

Where promotional discounts are applied to orders, the discount will be applied to each item in the basket. In the event of a return, you will not be refunded the discounted proportion.

With the exception of faulty or damaged goods, if you return your purchase by post or courier after the 28 day period, we reserve the right to not offer you a refund in full. We will, instead, return your purchase to you, and prior to sending it out, we will charge you the delivery fee that is applicable to the product purchased and the location to which your returns will be delivered.

Our online refund policy does not affect your statutory rights in respect of faulty, incorrect or damaged goods.

Please see our Returns section in our Customer Service pages for full details of our refund policy and how to return goods.

Events Beyond Our Reasonable Control

We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause that is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your statutory rights.

Supplemental Terms and Conditions of Sale for Furniture and Large Mirrors

Product Specifications

Leather products are made from quality natural leather, and therefore, each product will have its own unique characteristics. Anilines, in particular, will bear traces of the animal’s life such as scars, growth lines and will vary in shade and colour across the hide. These are not faults and simply add to the individuality of the furniture. There are many different types of leather.

All wooden furniture, whether solid or veneered can naturally vary in grain and colour. Solid wood, in particular, will bear the hallmarks of tree growth and may display knots, unevenness across the timbers on distressed finishes and minor surface irregularities. These are natural inherent characteristics and should not be a cause for concern.

All quality beds need time to settle in and the mattress may require turning periodically. Some settlement can be expected and this is normal and no reason for concern. Pocket sprung mattress can appear slightly shorter in size when new; however, after a few weeks of use, they will spread to their full size.

Please ensure that you choose the correct type of upholstery fabric and/or filling for your lifestyle and check that the performance rating matches its intended use and location. Many upholstery fillings require daily maintenance in order to keep your furniture looking at its best. Please check if this applies to your intended purchase before ordering.

Proper care and maintenance will prolong the life of your furniture.

If you have any enquiries about any of the above details, please contact our Customer Services before placing your order.

Terms and Conditions of Sale

We deliver furniture and large mirrors from Monday to Friday, between 7am and 4pm, and an offer of delivery will be made within seven days of you placing your order. The initial offer of delivery will be for a specific day, dependent on the delivery address. If the delivery date is unsuitable, then you can agree an alternative day with our delivery company. If you require your delivery to be made on a specific day or time slot or on a Saturday, please contact our Customer Services or speak to the agent when the offer of delivery is made to see whether this option is available. An additional charge may apply.

The delivery company will contact you via text or call the day before the delivery with a two hour delivery window.

All products are delivered to the room of your choice and will be assembled by us (if applicable) unless you choose otherwise. You are required to ensure that the product will fit your property and can be easily transported. Our delivery company will need to have enough space for access to bring in the furniture or large mirror through your front door. We include product weights and dimensions on our website. If you are unsure about anything, you must call us before placing your order. Please read our home delivery checklist to ensure that we can successfully deliver to your home. If the furniture or large mirror does not fit, and therefore cannot be delivered, it will be classed as a failed order, and unfortunately, a charge of £45 will be levied. You can either cancel your order or ask for a re-delivery at this point in time.

Upon delivery, the crew will ask you to inspect the packaging for any sign of damage. Please take time to ensure that everything is in order. Once the product has been assembled (if applicable), you will be asked to inspect the item for any sign of damage and then sign a customer satisfaction note. Please take the time to fill in as much detail as possible.
All wrapping will be removed after your final inspection. Should you prefer to not have the goods unpacked and assembled (if applicable), the delivery team will still unwrap the goods for inspection and then re-cover the product using the original packaging.

If you are unable to accommodate the delivery, you must inform us at least 48 hours in advance of the delivery date to arrange another date at no extra charge. If you cannot accommodate delivery of your furniture or large mirror within 14 working days of the notified date of delivery, our delivery company will store the goods. However, this will incur a storage charge payable directly to the delivery company. They will advise you of the charge, which will vary dependent on the number of days and type and size of the furniture being stored. Storage costs approximately £20 per week.

If there is no-one available to accept the delivery on the day agreed with the delivery company, a £45 charge will be payable directly to the delivery company in order that a redelivery may be attempted, and they will contact you to arrange an alternative date.

Our furniture and large mirrors are manufactured to the highest standards, and you should look after your furniture or large mirror according to the care instructions. In the unlikely event that you have any issues with your furniture or large mirror after delivery, please contact our Customer Services.

Our refund policy does not apply to furniture orders made on our website, and you may only return furniture if you wish to cancel your contract with us, please see Cancellations for further details. Please note that your contract for mattresses cannot be cancelled if, for hygiene or safety reasons, they have been opened and/or used. We reserve the right to apply a usage fee to all furniture that has been in use for over 1 year prior to the report of any fault.

In the event of a dispute that we are unable to resolve, we recommend that you contact the Furniture Ombudsman as they offer an independent dispute resolution service. The Furniture Ombudsman is a an independent organisation that has been created to promote and protect good working practices within the furniture industries of the UK, and House of Fraser is a founder member.

Competition and Prize Draw General Terms and Conditions

These Terms and Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions (which we will refer to as our “General Terms”) are the general terms and conditions that apply to all competitions and prize draws as promoted by us. We refer to all competitions and prize draws as “Competitions” in these General Terms.
  2. Competitions may also have their own specific terms and conditions (such as the details of how to enter, what the opening/closing dates are and what sort of prize you may win). Any such Competition specific terms and conditions will be made available as part of the on-line or in-print promotion of the particular Competition. In these General Terms, we will refer to Competition specific terms and conditions as the “Specific Terms”.
  3. You should therefore read these General Terms in combination with any applicable Specific Terms. Where any such Specific Terms conflict with these General Terms, the Specific Terms will take precedence.
  4. We may change these General Terms at any time. You should check our website regularly for any changes, which will apply from the date that they are uploaded.

Identity of the Promoter of the Competition

  1. Unless any Specific Terms tell you otherwise, we will always be the promoter of Competitions.

Eligibility Rules for Our Competitions

  1. Unless we say otherwise in the Specific Terms, our Competitions are open to all persons resident in the UK (which comprises England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) aged 18 or over at the date of their entry.
  2. Certain Competitions may have additional eligibility requirements, such as valid passports, visas, driving licences, good physical health and so on. Any such additional eligibility requirements will be publicised to entrants in the relevant Competition or Specific Terms.
  3. In the event that Competitions are open to children (aged 15 or younger) and/or young persons (aged 16 or 17), the age requirements will be publicised to entrants in the Specific Terms. We reserve the right to require that the parent or guardian of any person aged 18 or less confirms in writing that they agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and will accept any prize on behalf of an under-18 prize winner.
  4. It will be our sole decision as to whether any eligibility requirement has or has not been met, and we may require evidence or confirmation from entrants before awarding prizes.
  5. Employees of House of Fraser and their immediate families may not enter any Competition; neither may the employees of any third party sponsors, prize providers or their immediate families or anyone professionally associated with the Competition.

Entry and Entry Methods

  1. The entry method will be specified in the relevant media as part of the on-line or in-print promotion of the particular Competition and/or in the Specific Terms.
  2. In all Competitions, we reserve the right to reject any entries that do not meet the entry requirements as stated in the Specific Terms, are incomplete, incomprehensible, damaged or otherwise deficient. We also reserve the right to reject entries that are unlawful, indecent, racist, inflammatory, defamatory or which we consider to be otherwise harmful to the goodwill and reputation of our Company. We accept no responsibility for any late, lost or misdirected entries, including but not limited to texts, post, online entry forms or emails not received due to technical disruptions, network congestion, virus, bugs or any other reason. Proof of sending of any entry will not be proof of our receipt of that entry.
  3. The use of any automated entry software or any other mechanical or electronic means that permits any person to enter any Competition repeatedly is prohibited.
  4. Unless otherwise permitted pursuant to any Specific Terms, no person may enter any Competition more than once, and persons may not enter or participate as part of a syndicate or on behalf of any other person, syndicate, group, society or company. We reserve the right to disqualify any entrant who uses multiple names and to require them to return any prize they may have won.
  5. Where an entrant or prize winner has been found to be in breach of any of the terms and conditions of a Competition and, in particular, where a person is in breach of the entry restrictions set out in rules 4.3 and 4.4 above, we may nevertheless still enforce our right to disqualify that person and require the return or reimbursement to us of any prize even where a prize has been awarded and/or actually provided to the entrant or prize winner in question.

Prizes

  1. We reserve the right to substitute the stated prizes with prizes that we consider to be of the same or higher value. We offer no cash alternative for non-cash prizes and prize winners must accept prizes in the form offered. All elements of a prize are non-transferable. Where a prize is won by a person younger than 18, we reserve the right to award the prize to the prize winner’s parent or guardian on behalf of the prize winner. Holiday prizes are not available to persons under the age of 18 without written consent from a parent or legal guardian and unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  2. All prize winners will be notified that they have won a prize no later than thirty (30) days of the closing date of the Competition via telephone or in writing via email.
  3. Prizes will be dispatched to the winners via the UK mail service, unless otherwise stated. We will not be liable for any prizes which are lost, delayed or damaged in the post for reasons beyond our control.
  4. Prizes will only be delivered to an address within the UK (or elsewhere if the Competition is open to entrants residing outside of the UK). Should a prize winner’s contact details change, it is their responsibility to notify us or the contact persons for the relevant Competition.
  5. We reserve the right to request proof of a prize winner’s identity in the form of a passport or driver’s licence and proof of address in the form of a utility bill. In the event that a prize winner cannot provide us with proof of identity reasonably acceptable to us, we may withdraw the prize and select another prize winner.
  6. All prizes are subject to availability, non-transferable and non-exchangeable. Where prizes consist of entry tickets, attendance at events, holidays and similar time specific benefits, they must be taken on the dates specified by us or in the Specific Terms. If a prize winner does not take any element of a prize at the time stipulated by us (or any relevant third party prize provider) then that element of the prize will be forfeited by the winner. No cash will be awarded in lieu of that prize or part of it.
  7. Any tax payable as a result of a prize being awarded or received will be the responsibility of the winner. Winners should seek independent financial advice prior to accepting a prize if this is a concern.
  8. We make no representation or warranty in relation to prizes provided and to the fullest extent permitted by law, we shall have no liability to you in relation to any prize, its fitness for purposes, merchantability or otherwise. We reserve the right to disqualify entrants from entering our Competitions or prize winners from receiving their prizes where any such person engages in unsafe, illegal, unsociable or inappropriate behaviour.
  9. All stated prize values are at the supplier’s recommended retail price in pounds sterling and are correct at the time of printing. We take no responsibility for any fluctuations in prize values. We award cash prizes in the form specified in the Specific Terms. Any other arrangement will be at our discretion.
  10. No additional, further or other costs or expenses are included in any prize unless stated in the Specific Terms. For example, the costs of transport to and from a venue or an event are not included and any accommodation prize includes basic room charge only.
  11. Third party suppliers of prizes may also often stipulate their own terms, conditions or restrictions and all prize winners agree to be bound by these. Subject to point 2 of Exclusion of Liability in the General Terms, we shall have no liability in relation to any prize provided by a third party provider.

Holiday Prizes

  1. Where holiday prizes include a place for a travelling companion (i.e. a holiday for the prize winner plus guest), then these terms also apply to those persons. The holiday prize will be subject to availability and certain dates may be excluded when the winner may not take up the prize. All elements relating to such prize must be taken up during one period, and not on non-consecutive dates. The prize winner and any travelling companions must have and maintain valid passports endorsed with all relevant visas and with expiry dates no less than six (6) months following the proposed dates of travel or such other duration as may be required by any relevant regulation.
  2. Unless otherwise stated, insurance is not provided as part of any holiday prize. It will be each prize winner’s and (if applicable) their travelling companion’s responsibility to take out at their own cost all relevant insurance (including but not limited to health and travel insurance, insurance for theft, loss and damage to property) which may be required or prudent to be taken. All insurance, spending money and other expenses, unless otherwise stated, are costs for the prize winner and their travelling companion and are not provided as part of any holiday prize. Unless stated otherwise, holiday prizes consist of flights and accommodation only.
  3. Unless otherwise stated, holiday prizes do not include airport departure or government taxes. These must be paid by the prize winner and any travelling companion.
  4. Passport control and the authorities of the country being visited may reserve the right to refuse entry to prize winners and/or their travelling companions. If this occurs, we shall not be responsible for ensuring prize winners or their travelling companions’ ability to travel to their holiday destination nor for any additional costs incurred should any person be refused entry. It is the prize winners’ obligation to check any conditions of entry and comply accordingly.
  5. Holiday prizes are also usually subject to terms and conditions required by the provider which will apply to the prize winner and their travelling companion.
  6. It is the responsibility of the prize winner and any travelling companions (if applicable) to check any travel advisories issued by the Government and determine whether they wish to accept the risk of travelling to the holiday destination. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage suffered by any prize winner and their travelling companions (if applicable) arising out of their failure to follow any travel advisories issued by the Government.
  7. The prize winner and their travelling companions (if applicable) must comply with and are responsible for obtaining any inoculation and health regulations by any holiday prize destination country.
  8. We will not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage suffered by any prize winner or their travelling companion (if applicable) should any prize winner or their travelling companion (if applicable) not redeem a holiday prize as a result of any Government travel warning or advisory applicable to the destination country and/or countries or for any other failure on their part to travel. In particular, we shall have no obligation to substitute any alternative prize, cash equivalent or other compensation where a prize winner and/or their travelling companion (if applicable) fail to redeem a holiday prize for any reason.

Events Prizes

  1. Where the prize for any of our Competitions involves the winner’s attendance at (or tickets to) an event, the prize winner acknowledges that we are not liable or responsible if any part of the event is cancelled, varied or rescheduled for any reason. If this means that the winner (and/or any accompanying guests) cannot attend the relevant event, we shall be under no obligation to provide any cash or alternative tickets.
  2. Where prizes comprise or include “meet and greet” elements with celebrities, the prize may be subject to the availability of the celebrity in question. We will have no liability for any inability or failure of any prize winner or celebrity to attend any “meet and greet” session offered on any date nor will we offer any alternative prize or cash alternative or compensation for such failure.

Unclaimed Prizes

  1. All prizes must be claimed within fourteen (14) days of our notification of winning unless otherwise stated. We reserve the right to award prizes unclaimed after this period to alternative prize winners or not to award them at all.

  5. Entrants also acknowledge that publicity materials featuring them may be provided to our third party prize providers or promoters for the purposes of promoting their association with the Competition and awarding the relevant prizes.
  6. No fees shall be payable to any entrant in relation to their entry in any Competition.

    1. entrants warrant that they are the person in the Creative or have prior approval from the person in the Creative that it may be submitted as part of their entry;

    4. entrants agree that we have the right to use entrants’ names, likenesses and other personal information in conjunction with the Creative;

    7. entrants aged under 18 shall have obtained the consent of a parent or a guardian (and will provide us with the contact details we need should we wish to verify this) to enter the Creative.

  1. Where any prize is awarded via a prize draw, prize winners will be chosen at random from all qualifying entries within twenty eight (28) days of the Competition closing date.

    2. agree not to assert any moral rights in respect of their entry and the publicity materials (wherever and whenever such rights are recognised) against us, our assigns, licensees and successors in title;
    3. undertake to us that their entry is not in breach of any third party intellectual property rights and will not contain anything, which is defamatory, indecent, harassing or threatening and that they will indemnify us for any loss, damage or liability arising should this turn out not to be true. If relevant, we reserve the right, but not the obligation (and without limiting entrants’ warranty and indemnity as set out above), to screen, filter and/or monitor information provided by the entrant and to edit, refuse to distribute or remove the same;
    4. confirm that they have the right, power and authority to grant the rights set out above and that they have obtained all consents and permissions necessary to grant us the same.
  2. For the avoidance of doubt, all rights in the name and title of the Competition and the format rights for the Competition are our sole property and we may exploit the same in our absolute discretion.
