Snow-Forecast.com Competition Rules:
Applicable until further notice, Published: August 2008
The following rules are applicable to all competitions promoted or conducted by Snow-Forecast.com Ltd., its subsidiaries or related companies on the website at www.snow-forecast.com ("Website"). These rules will be deemed incorporated in each such competition except to the extent that any instruction in an individual competition provides otherwise. Such instructions form part of these rules.
Unless otherwise specified, Snow-Forecast.com Ltd. (whose principal place of business is at Unit 2 Ocean House, Hunter St, Cardiff CF10 5FR) is the promoter of all competitions on the Website. In these Rules, the promoter is referred to as "SFC".
In the event of any conflict between these rules and any instruction in an individual competition, the instructions in the individual competition will prevail.
These rules, which may be amended from time to time, and any such instructions shall be binding on all entrants. The rules are always available on the Website.
All competitions are open to persons who are aged 18 or over at the specified closing time (unless any other age restriction is specified).
Competitions may run concurrently across other websites within the SFC or Meteo365.com group.
Employees of SFC and the promoter, and their subsidiaries or related companies, and any company involved in the competition, together with their agents and members of their families, are not eligible to participate.
Subject to any different instructions specified in any individual competition:
No purchase is necessary to enter any competition.
All entries must be made on the official page on the Website, if there is one, or otherwise on the official entry form. They must be clearly marked with the entrant's name, e-mail address, and any other specified details. All required fields of information must be completed accurately and in full for an entry to be processed and accepted.
Unless otherwise stated, entries must be made to the page on the Website specified in the competition instructions. They are invalid if they arrive any later than the specified closing time.
Only one entry per entrant (or household if so specified) is permitted.
All questions in the instructions must be answered and all other entry requirements fulfilled.
Proof of entry form submission will not constitute proof of delivery and no responsibility will be accepted for lost, corrupted, delayed or mislaid entries.
Use of a false name or address will disqualify entrants from receiving any prize. Entrants who are rude, abusive or deemed otherwise unsuitable by SFC will be excluded from the competition.
In the event of the closing time being extended, which the Judges may do in their absolute discretion, there will be an announcement of any such extension at the first reasonable opportunity.
Subject to Rule 8:
The winner will be chosen in accordance with the competition instructions, and will either be the first correct entry drawn from the total entries or all entries will be examined and the prize will be awarded to the entry that the Judges consider to be the best.
Other prizes will be awarded in accordance with the order of priority as stated in the individual competition.
In any competition where there are only a limited number of prizes so that not every entrant can win a prize, there may be a tie-breaker which may include a significant element of skill.
The decision of the Judges shall be final and unchallengeable and, in their absolute discretion, they may declare void any entry, or the competition itself, should they consider that there are no entries reaching a required standard, whereupon they can award prizes or not, as they think fit. The Judges may also decide, in their absolute discretion, to change the rules of a competition while it is running if it appears to them that it would be equitable or desirable to do so. No correspondence will be entered into.
Winners will be formally notified within 21 days of the closing time. The names of any winners can be obtained for up to one month after the relevant closing time by sending a stamped addressed envelope to SFC at the registered address, specifying the name of the competition in question.
If an entrant is notified as a winner and does not acknowledge such notification within 14 days from the date of notification, then SFC shall be entitled to withdraw that entrant's right to the prize and SFC shall have the right to select an alternative winner in accordance with Rule 7.
All prizes are subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant manufacturer or supplier of those prizes.
SFC and its subsidiaries and related companies reserve the right to publish the names of the winners and runners-up, and any entries. A condition of entry is that entrants are deemed to have assigned the copyright of their entries to SFC. All entries, however submitted, shall become the property of SFC. Entrants agree that SFC and its subsidiaries and related companies will have the right, with no further permission or payment, to publish all or part of any entry or use it in any way they think fit.
Entrants may be required to sign a promotional release granting SFC and its subsidiaries and related companies the right to use their name and likeness for advertising and publicity purposes without additional compensation. Entry into a competition constitutes the entrant's agreement to sign such releases. Non-compliance will result in disqualification of the entrant.
The winner(s) agree that SFC and its subsidiaries, related companies and employees, and any other sponsors, shall (to the maximum extent permitted by law) have no liability in connection with acceptance or use of any of the prizes awarded.
Unless otherwise stated in the rules of a particular competition, there will be no cash or other alternative to the prize offered and prizes are not transferable. However, should the advertised prize become unavailable SFC reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to offer an alternative prize of equal or greater value.
SFC and its subsidiaries and related companies will not be liable for any circumstances beyond its reasonable control that prevent a prize being taken up by a winner.
Prizes of tickets to cancelled or curtailed events may not be valid for re-scheduled dates.
Prizes do not include provision for travel, accommodation, insurance or any other expenses unless otherwise specified. The winner is responsible for the payment of any applicable taxes.
By entering the competition entrants are agreeing to be bound by these rules, any conditions set out in the competition instructions, and SFC's decisions relating to the competition. SFC reserves the right to disqualify an entry if it has reasonable grounds to believe that an entrant has breached any of the competition's rules or conditions.
All competitions are governed by English law.
