COMPETITION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

These terms and conditions (the “General Terms”) apply to all competitions (the “Competition(s)”) promoted by Cornfield Publishing Limited (“Cornfield”, “we”, “us”, “our”), a company incorporated in England and Wales under company number 09147763 and with registered office situated at Cornfield Publishing, Wythall Business Centre, May Lane, Hollywood, Birmingham, B47 5PD, England. Each Competition also has its 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 (the “Specific Terms”.) If the Specific Terms conflict with the General Terms, the Specific Terms will take precedence.
We may change the General Terms at any time. Changes will apply from the date that they are uploaded to our website www.cornfieldpublishing.co.uk (our “Website”).

By entering any of the Competitions you (“entrant”; “you”) agree that you are legally bound by the General Terms and any applicable Specific Terms.

IDENTITY OF THE PROMOTER OF THE COMPETITION
Unless any Specific Terms tell you otherwise, the promoter of each of the Competitions is Cornfield. If the Promoter is a third party (“the Competition Promoter “) the terms “we” and “us” in the General Terms shall refer to both Cornfield and the third party promoter.
Cornfield is a company registered in England and Wales. Our registered office is at Wythall Business Centre May Lane, Hollywood, Birmingham, B47 5PD, England. You can write to us at that address if you have any concerns in relation to any of the Competitions – please set out clearly the name of the competition and your concern.

COMPETITIONS
The Competitions require the entrants to use their skill and/or knowledge to answer the question(s) or solve the task(s) (the “Competion Questions”) of the Competion correctly and thereby obtain an opportunity to win the prize.
Cornfield may offer and run multiple competitions at any one time with different prizes as stipulated in the Special Terms of each of the Competitions.
By entering into the Competition, the entrant acknowledges that payment for each entry to answer the Competition Questions and thereby enter the Competition does not guarantee in any way that the entrant will win the prize.
Only completed entries which contain the correct answer to the Competition Questions as held by Cornfield will be entered into the Competition. Failure to answer any of the Competition Questions correctly will still result in any entrant being charged payment for each entry.

ELIGIBILITY RULES FOR OUR COMPETITIONS
All entrants in the Competitions must be 18 years of age.
Certain of the Competitions may have additional eligibility requirements, such as that entrants must hold valid passports, visas, driving licences, have good physical health (for special holiday prizes) and so on. Any such additional eligibility requirements will be stated in the Specific Terms covering the relevant Competition.
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.
Cornfield reserves the right to refuse or disqualify any entrant if it has reasonable grounds for believing that an entrant has contravened any of the General Terms and/or Specific Terms or acted in a way that is reasonably considered by Cornfield to be illegal.
Employees of Cornfield and their immediate families may not enter any of the Competitions; neither may the employees of any third party prize providers or their immediate families.

ENTRY AND ENTRY METHODS

Correct answers must be submitted for each of the questions along with any fee due for the respective competition. Entries can also be made by the free entry route outlined below.
Webform: To be valid, entries must be received after the opening time and before the closing time of the competition.
Entries that are submitted before the opening time and after the closing time will not be entered in the Competition.
Deficient entries: In all Competitions, we reserve the right to reject any entries that are inaudible, incomplete, incomprehensible, damaged or otherwise deficient. We also reserve the right to reject entries that are unlawful or which we consider to be otherwise harmful to the goodwill and reputation of our brand or the brand of the Competition Promoter that is running the Competition in question if applicable. We accept no responsibility for any late, lost or misdirected entries including but not limited to postal items or emails not received due to technical disruptions, network congestion or any other reason. Proof of posting of any postal entry will not be proof of our receipt of that entry.
Automated Entry: 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.
Names: Entrants must enter Competitions using their legal names. We reserve the right to disqualify any entrant who uses multiple names and to require them to return any prize they may have won.
Multiple Entries: Unless otherwise permitted pursuant to any Specific Terms, a maximum of 10 entries are permitted for any natural or legal person for each competition.
All entries will become the property of Cornfield on receipt and will not be returned to the entrant.
Retrospective Effect: Where an entrant or prize winner has been found to be in breach of any of the terms and conditions of a Competition including but not limited to the General Terms and the Specific Terms and in particular where a person is in breach of the entry restrictions, we may 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.
All entries to the Competition are final and no refunds shall be made at any time or for any reason, except if Cornfield cancels the Competition.
The entrant agrees that the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 for any goods and services ordered online to be supplied within 30 days shall not apply to the Competitions except if required by law.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
Each Competition will close when the maximum number of paid for entries set for the relevant Competition has been reached. We will announce the date of the draw without undue delay thereafter.
If the number of paid for entries does not reach the maximum number of paid for entries at the time of closing the competition, but is anyhow deemed by Cornfield as sufficient, the prize(s) may still be awarded at the sole discretion of Cornfield.
When the maximum number of paid for entries and/or the specified closing date is reached, the Competition will close; however, Cornfield reserves the right to extend the closing date by up to 6 weeks at its discretion.

WINNERS AND PRIZES
The prizewinner is chosen at random before or after the closing time of the Competition from the entrants that has answered the Competition Questions correctly. The prizewinner will receive the prize in accordance with the General Terms. There will only be one winner per Competition unless otherwise stated.
Google Random Number Generator will be utilised for randomly selecting the prizewinner if not otherwise specified in the Specific Terms.
Full details of the draw date/time will be confirmed once the Competition has closed via Facebook and/or our Website within 48 hours of the close of the Competition.
If the number of entries to the Competition, at the closing date or before the closing date if the Competition for any reason must conclude early, do not exceed the maximum number of paid for entries allowed, the Competition will either close and the proceeds from the paid for entries will either be deemed sufficient to award the prize at the sole discretion of Cornfield, or the remaining funds will be allocated as a cash prize to a winner after the deduction of a) 100% of Cornfield’s Competition specific expenses including but not limited to marketing costs and the Competition’s share of Cornfield’s overheads; b) Cornfield’s calculated profit share from the Competition; and c) taxes where applicable.
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 prizewinners must accept prizes in the form offered.
All prizewinners will be notified that they have won a prize within 7 days of the closing date of the Competition by email, telephone, in writing, or via the method specified in the Competition Specific Terms. If the prizewinner cannot be contacted by Cornfield within 7 days of being notified of their status as winner by by email, telephone, in writing or via the method specified in the Competition Specific Terms, then Cornfield reserves the right to select another winner, who will then have 7 days to accept the prize following the same routes of contact as the original winner. The original winner will have no claim to the prize after the other winner is selected.
Physical prizes which can reasonably be sent by post will be sent to the prizewinners to an address within the UK only within 30 days of the Competition closing date 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 or under transportation for reasons beyond our control.
Physical prizes which are too large to be sent by post must be collected by the prizewinner from our registered office or otherwise as specified by Cornfield. Collection of the prize is the sole responsibility of the prizewinner.
A list of prizewinner(s) for any Competition is available by sending a request with a stamped addressed envelope, marked with the name of the Competition, to Cornfield at the address stated above after the closing date of the Competition.
We reserve the right to request proof of a prizewinner’s identity, age and address. In the event that a prizewinner cannot provide us with proof of identity and age reasonably acceptable to us, we may withdraw the prize and select another prizewinner.
We reserve the right to disqualify entrants from entering our Competitions or prizewinners from receiving their prizes where any such person engages in unsafe, illegal, unsociable or inappropriate behaviour.
All prizes are 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 in the relevant Specific Terms. If a prizewinner does not take any element of a prize at the time stipulated by us (or any relevant Competition Promoter or third party prize provider) then that element of the prize will be forfeited by the prizewinner. No cash will be awarded in lieu of that prize or part of it.
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 purpose, merchantability or otherwise.
Except otherwise specified in the Specific Terms all stated prize values are at the supplier’s recommended retail price in pounds sterling and are correct at the time of printing and/or upload to our Website or Competition specific website. We take no responsibility for any fluctuations in prize values or errors in the stated prize values.
No additional, further or other costs or expenses are included in any prize unless stated. For example, the costs of transport to and from a venue or an event are not included, and any accommodation prize includes the basic room charge only.
The prizewinner is responsible for tax and insurance for the prize as required and Cornfield shall have no responsibility over the prize(s) once handover is completed.
Prizes supplied by third parties are always subject to availability. Third party suppliers of prizes may also often stipulate their own terms, conditions or restrictions and all prizewinners agree to be bound by such terms, conditions or restrictions. We shall have no liability in relation to any prize provided by a third party provider.

HOLIDAY PRIZES
Because of their complexity, we have certain special terms that apply to holiday prizes. Where holiday prizes include a place for a travelling companion (i.e. a holiday for the prizewinner plus guest) then these terms also apply to those persons.
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.
It will be each prizewinner’s or (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) which may be required or prudent to be taken. All insurance, spending money and other expenses, unless otherwise stated, must be borne by the prizewinner and are not provided as part of any holiday prize. Unless stated otherwise, holiday prizes consist of flights and accommodation only.
Holiday prizes do not include airport departure or government taxes. These must be paid by the prizewinner or any travelling companion.
The prizewinner and any travelling companion 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. These passports, and their holders, must not be subject to any restrictions on their rights to travel to and from the applicable country or countries. Passport control and in-country authorities may reserve the right to refuse entry to prizewinners and/or their travelling companion. We shall not be responsible for ensuring your ability to travel to your holiday destination nor for any additional costs incurred should you be refused entry.
It is the responsibility of the prizewinner or any travelling companion (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 prizewinner and their travelling companion (if applicable) arising out of their failure to follow any travel advisories issued by the Government.
The prizewinner and their travelling companion (if applicable) must comply with and are responsible for obtaining any inoculation and complying with any health regulations required by any holiday prize destination country.
We will not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage suffered by any prizewinner or their travelling companion (if applicable) if any prizewinner or their travelling companion (if applicable) does not redeem a holiday prize as a result of any Government travel warning or advisory applicable to the destination country and/or countries. In particular, we shall have no obligation to substitute any alternative prize, cash equivalent or other compensation where a prizewinner and/or their travelling companion (if applicable) fails to redeem a holiday prize for any reason.
Prizewinners and their travelling companions must comply with the terms and limitations of airlines, other transport providers, and the venues involved in the provision of any holiday prize, including any insurance policy relating to the holiday. In particular, entrants must comply with all health and safety guidelines and instructions and all applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
All holiday prizes must be taken within six (6) months of the closing date of the relevant Competition, or within the time limit specified in the Specific Terms if different, or the prize will lapse.

EVENTS PRIZES
Where the prize for any Competition involves the prizewinner’s attendance at (or tickets to) an event, the prizewinner 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 prizewinner (and/or any accompanying guests) cannot attend the relevant event, we shall be under no obligation to provide any cash or alternative tickets.
Entrants proposing to participate in any Competition which involves, or to redeem a prize which involves, performing stunts or physical challenges should notify us of any medical condition and we may at our absolute discretion require the entrant, as a condition of entering the Competition or receiving the prize:
to submit to a medical examination by a medical practitioner approved by us and to obtain medical clearance to participate in the Competition and/or redeem the prize; and/or
to execute a legal document to exonerate us from liability in a form prescribed by us in order to participate further in the Competition and/or redeem the prize.
Where prizes comprise or include “meet and greet” elements with celebrities, the prize may be subject to the availability of the celebrity in question or to rules imposed by the celebrity and we will have no liability for any inability or failure of any prizewinner to attend any “meet and greet” session that has been arranged and offered on any date nor will we offer any alternative prize or cash alternative or compensation for such failure.

UNCLAIMED PRIZES
All prizes must be claimed within twenty-one (21) days of our notification of winning or as otherwise stated in any Specific Terms. We reserve the right to award prizes unclaimed after this period to alternative prizewinners or not to award them at all.
If you do not provide us with correct and accurate up-to-date contact details, we will be unable to contact you and you may as a result forfeit your prize.

PUBLICITY AND PERSONAL INFORMATION
All entrants are solely and completely responsible for providing and maintaining Cornfield with accurate contact details.
We will be in no way liable for any failure or inability to make contact with any entrant due to any errors or inaccuracies in the contact details provided by the entrant.
The personal information supplied by entrants when entering our Competitions will be used by us in accordance with our privacy notice which may be modified in respect of any particular Competition. You should always read our privacy notice as your entry in the relevant Competition is an agreement to be bound by the privacy notice. Entrants may have their details removed from our database further to our privacy notice by contacting us. If details are removed prior to the conclusion of the Competition and/or award of prize(s), entrants will however forfeit their right to claim any prizes.
The entrants also recognise that we may (either by choice or at the request of a third party) disclose this information to relevant third parties for the purposes of the prevention of fraud, money laundering, legal or other financial or regulatory reasons.
If an entrant is required to submit a third party’s personal information as a part of entry into or participation in any Competition, each entrant must ensure that any other person whose details have been provided by the entrant to us has given or will give their consent for their details to be provided to us and to be contacted by us in relation to the relevant Competition.
It is a condition of entry to our Competitions that we have the right to communicate to the public the names and counties of prizewinners.
Prizewinners also acknowledge that publicity materials featuring them may be provided to our third party prize providers for the purposes of promoting their association with the Competition and for awarding the relevant prizes.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS
Should any Competition require entrants to submit a photograph or video clip as a part of entry into or participation in a Competition (collectively, “Photograph”):
entrants warrant that they are the person in the photograph or have prior approval from the person in the photograph that it may be submitted as part of their entry;
entrants agree that we have the right to publish and communicate to the public the Photographs in any media (including but not limited to online) at all times without restriction or limitation throughout the world and not only for the purposes of the Competition;
entrants acknowledge that we may edit the Photographs in our sole discretion;
entrants agree that we have the right to use entrants’ first names, likenesses, county and age in conjunction with the Photographs;
entrants agree not to bring against us any actions, suits, claims or demands us in respect of defamation or any infringement or violation of any personal and/or property rights of any sort from our use of their Photographs;
entrants unconditionally waive their right to seek or obtain an injunction to prevent or restrict our use of the Photographs; and
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 if we wish to verify this).
DRAWS
Where any prize is awarded via a prize draw, prizewinners will be chosen at random from all qualifying entries within twenty eight (28) days (unless a lesser period is specified in the Specific Terms) of the Competition closing date.
If we become aware that the same person has been selected as a prizewinner more than once, that person will win once only and we will draw another name.

COPYRIGHT
By entering our Competitions all entrants:
assign to us all rights (including present and future copyright) in their entry in all media (including, without limitation, the internet) and whether in existence now or created in the future;
agree not to assert any moral rights in respect of their entry (wherever and whenever such rights are recognised) against us, our assigns, licensees and successors in title;
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; and
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.
For the avoidance of doubt, all rights in the name and title of the Competition and the format of the Competition are our sole property and we may exploit the same at our absolute discretion.

TAMPERING AND OTHER MATTERS
If for any reason any Competition is not capable of running as planned as a result of any (including 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 the problem.
Cornfield reserves the right to cancel the Competition at any time either before or after tickets have been sold. If the Competition is cancelled, Cornfield will return any paid in entry fees to each entrant (either by bank card refund or by cheque and in one combined payment where several entries have been made by an entrant or store credit). Where the entry fee is returned, Cornfield shall have no further liability to the entrant or to any other person.

FREE ENTRY ROUTE
If an entrant wish to enter any of the Competitions for free the entrant must send an unenclosed postcard by post. The card should stipulate which competition the entrant would like to participate in, the answer(s) to the Competition Question(s) specific to the relevant Competition as well as the personal details as follows: Full Name; Date of Birth; Full Postal Address; Email address; Contact telephone number. The postcard must also contain the correct answer(s) to the Competition Question(s) specific to the relevant Competition. The postcard must be sent to our registered address listed above with attention for “Att.: Free Draws Dept.”. Free entries must be received by Cornfield as described before the close of the competition.

TERMINATION OF COMPETITION
We may vary the terms of, or terminate, a Competition at any time at our absolute discretion without liability to any contestant or other person. We will not award any prize if the Competition is terminated.

DECISIONS FINAL
All our decisions relating to any Competition and/or redemption of the prizes are final. No discussions or correspondence with entrants or any other person will be entered into.
Tiebreakers, disputes, conflicts, questions or concerns will be managed by us and, if required by law, by an independent adjudicator.
Where a Competition involves voting, the accuracy of the pooled results received and published by 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 these terms and conditions in any instance(s) will not give rise to any claim or right of action by any entrant or prizewinner, nor shall it be deemed to be a waiver of any of our rights in relation to the same.

EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY
Except as specifically set out herein and to the maximum extent permitted by law, all conditions, warranties and representations expressed or implied by law are hereby excluded.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, we hereby exclude and shall not have any liability to any entrant or prizewinner in connection with or arising out of any Competition howsoever caused, including for any costs, expenses, forfeited prizes, damages and other liabilities, provided that 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 condition shall also apply in respect of any prize provided by a third party provider.
In the event that any provision of these General (or any Specific) Terms are held to be illegal, invalid, void or otherwise unenforceable, it shall be severed from the remaining provisions which shall continue in full force and effect.
The General Terms and/or the Specific Terms or other Competition rules shall not create or be construed as creating any form of contract, joint venture or other agreement between any entrant and Cornfield.

LAWS
These General Terms (and any Specific Terms) shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of England and Wales, and the Courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction except if otherwise determined by legally binding statute.
