We often run little competitions or give away items either through social media, email campaigns or our website. We try to make the offers simple and clear but inevitably we don't have room for lots of terms and conditions, so here is some extra detail.
If we are offering to pick a winner at random, then we will make a spreadsheet of all the entries that are eligible and get three or four members of staff to pick random numbers between 1 and 10, which are then put together to determine which is the winning row. (We used to print out all the entries onto little bits of paper and pick one from a shoebox, but fair to say we've been surprised by the success of our competitions in recent months so we've had to display adaptability).
We may also run two promotions at once with one prize, so, for example, you may enter by joining our mailing list or by 'liking' us on social media. The winner will be selected from all entries to win the one prize. We are not a mega-corporation so your odds of winning are still high with one prize.
If for some reason we are unable to fulfil a prize we will offer something else of equal value. An example might be import/export restriction on the prize or very expensive shipping costs. Note that we are not liable for any duty incurred for the item, although it would be marked as a gift and so should not incur any. All duty is the prize-winners responsibility.
We may on occasion remove entries from competitions where we can see the system is being gamed so that there is a fair chance for all entrants.
Winners will usually be notified directly by email and their name used in a social post and/or marketing email stating the winner's name. We will of course withold your name if you request but by entering any of our competitions you are giving us permission to use it.
If you have any questions that are not answered then please ask.
