Where Competitions are open to children (aged 15 or younger) and/or young persons (aged 16 or

entries that are unlawful, indecent, racist, inflammatory, defamatory or which we consider to be
otherwise harmful to the goodwill and reputation of our station that is running the Competition in
question. We accept no responsibility for any late, lost or misdirected entries not received due to
technical disruptions, network congestion or any other reason. Proof of posting of any postal entry

Retrospective Effect. Where an entrant or prizewinner 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 4.5 to 4.8 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 prizewinner in question.
We reserve in all cases the right to replace the stated prizes with prizes that we consider to be of
broadly equivalent value. We offer no cash alternative for non-cash prizes and prize winners must
accept prizes in the form offered. Where a prize is won by a person younger than 18, we reserve the

illegal, unsociable or inappropriate behaviour.

and all prize winners agree to be bound by these. Subject to paragraph 19.2, Bauer shall have no
liability in relation to any prize provided by a third party provider.

any item won, whether it be faulty, not working how they thought or not what they wanted and
agreeable to any other term we find fit.

TAMPERING AND OTHER MATTERS

but not limited to) technical failures, unauthorised intervention, computer virus, mobile network
failure, tampering, fraud or any other causes beyond our control which corrupt or affect the
administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of a Competition, we reserve the right
to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Competition and/or any draw/s or judging related to the
Competition and/or to disqualify any individual who (whether directly or indirectly) causes (or has
caused) the problem.
TERMINATION OF COMPETITION
The Promoter may vary the terms of, or terminate, a Competition at any time at its absolute
discretion without liability to any contestant or other person. The Promoter will not award the prize
if the Competition is terminated.
All our decisions relating to the Competition and/or redemption of the prizes are final. No
discussions or correspondence with entrants or any other person will be entered into.

by an independent adjudicator.

us will be deemed to be final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into.
FAILURE TO ENFORCE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
A failure by us to enforce any one of the terms and conditions in any instance(s) will not give rise to
any claim or right of action by any entrant or prize winner, nor shall it be deemed to be a waiver of
any of our rights in relation to the same.

warranties and representations expressed or implied by law are hereby excluded.

nothing herein shall operate so as to limit or exclude our liability for personal injury or death caused
by our negligence. For the avoidance of doubt, this paragraph 19.2 shall also apply in respect of any
prize provided by a third party provider.

void or otherwise unenforceable, it shall be severed from the remaining provisions which shall
continue in full force and effect.
