WinPrizes Competition Terms and Conditions

1. The following terms represent a contract between WinPrizes and the subscriber. The subscriber enters into this contract by joining a subscription service operated by WinPrizes, a subscription starts once the mobile phone number has been validated.

The following terms and conditions apply to all competitions featured on any of WinPrizes's interactive or mobile services, and any other competitions organised by WinPrizes (or a third party on WinPrizes's behalf). Once a subscription starts we’re under a legal obligation to comply with these terms and conditions.

2. By entering a competition entrants accept these terms and conditions together with any specific instructions and terms for such competition which may be mentioned in any electronic messages, or on the website, or communicated to entrants in any other way ("competition information"). Such competition information shall prevail in the event of there being any inconsistency between these competition terms and conditions and any competition information.

Competition Entry

3. The competition is open to all residents of the United Kingdom, which comprises England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. For the avoidance of doubt, Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man are not part of the United Kingdom for these purposes. WinPrizes reserves the right to ask competition winners for proof of UK residency and if a competition winner is unable to prove their residency to WinPrizes satisfaction (i.e. prove that they are physically present in the UK for 183 days or more in the previous or current UK tax year), WinPrizes reserves the right to select an alternative winner.

In order to be entered into a week’s subscription you must have sufficient mobile phone credit to receive questions and answer the questions for that week. All competitions have a minimum age limit of 16. If the competition information specifies a higher age limit then that higher age limit applies to that competition. Where a prize involves travel of any description, any winner under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Employees and members of their immediate families (including any live-in partner or household member) of any of the following may not enter:

a. WinPrizes / Connect Mobile Ltd comprising of the following brands:

TopPrizes

MegaWin

TopPrizes

WinIt

 iPadWinMe

BigWin

HotPrizes


4. WinPrizes reserves the right to ask for proof of age and evidence to verify the identity of an entrant at any time, and may use any reasonable channels and methods available to carry out checks of any details provided. Entrants may only enter the competition in their own name.

5. The opening and closing dates and times for entries are as indicated in the competition information. Any entries received before the opening and after the closing of the competition will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition.

6. By entering the competition entrants warrant that all information submitted by them is true, current, and complete.

7. Any limit on the number of entries a person or household may make will be clearly stated in the competition information. Entries received in excess of this limit will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition.

8. Entry to the competition may only be made through the applicable method(s) indicated in the competition information. Not all of the following methods of entry may be available for entry to each competition. The following terms and conditions will apply where the method is indicated as being available in the competition information. Where entrants pay an entry fee, they must have the permission of the bill payer before entering, otherwise the entry will be invalid.

a. Telephone entry Where specified in the competition information as an available method of entry to the competition, telephone entrants are required to call the telephone number as indicated in the competition information, and follow the instructions in the recorded message. The charge per call will be as indicated in the competition information and is based on the cost of a call from a BT fixed network line. The cost of entering from other networks will vary and from mobiles will cost considerably more and it is the entrant's responsibility to check before entering. Once the telephone number is dialled and the entrant is connected they will be charged the cost of entry (together with any applicable alternative network or mobile operators' charge). Please contact your telephone network operator for details. Pricing information is also available here. Telephone entries received after the notified competition closing time will not be valid. In such circumstances, WinPrizes will make every reasonable effort to deduct the charges incurred from a future competition entry by the entrant.

b. Text ("SMS") entry Where specified in the competition information as an available method of entry to the competition, SMS entrants are required to send a text to the shortcode or long number as indicated in the competition information. Texts received by WinPrizes will be charged at the standard network rate, which will vary depending on the entrant's mobile network provider. Entries sent by text message which are received after the stated competition closing time will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition. The entrant will not be entitled to a refund of the standard network charge imposed by the entrant's mobile network when they entered the competition by text message. Where multiple competitions run on the same shortcode or long number, where the closing date and time of one competition coincides with the opening date and time of the next competition, WinPrizes will treat every text entry as relating to the competition running at the time that the text entry is received. WinPrizes is not responsible for delays between when the entrant sends the text entry and when WinPrizes receives the text entry. WinPrizes's determination of the date and time that an SMS entry received shall be final and no correspondence will be entered into.

c. Web entry Where specified in the competition information as an available method of entry to the competition, web entrants are required to enter information accurately into the website as indicated in the competition information, and follow the instructions on the website. The required information may include name, email address, and contact telephone number. Entrants will receive a message confirming entry to the competition.

Mobile network operators may also charge their customers for using the Mobile Internet/browsing tools. Entrants should contact their network operator for more details as these charges may vary depending on the entrant's mobile network operator and tariff.

9.

Entrants may enter as many times as they like unless otherwise indicated in the competition information but no more than one prize per person per competition will be awarded.

11. Any entries which are incomplete, incorrect, inaudible, incomprehensible, or not received by WinPrizes will be void. An entry to the competition will be deemed to be an invalid entry where an entrant has evaded payment of the applicable entry charges when entering the competition or, in the case of postal entry, has failed to pay and affix the correct postal charges.

12. In the event of any fault, mistake, misunderstanding or dispute concerning the correctness or acceptability of the entry or any answers given by entrants (if applicable), or the operation of any part of the competition (in the case of postal entries, a postal strike for example), network or phone system, the decision of WinPrizes shall be final and no correspondence will be entered into.

18. Unless specified otherwise, where the winner is to be contacted by phone, WinPrizes will call the winner up to three times on the phone number provided at the time of entry. If on all three attempts the winner cannot be reached and a message cannot be left, then that winner is disqualified and another winner will be selected. If a message is left, the winner must speak to WinPrizes within 1 business day of the message being left. To help establish contact, WinPrizes will call the winner up to three times after the message has been left. For example, if the winner is called on a Wednesday at 12:47pm and a message is left, then the winner must speak to WinPrizes before 12:47pm on Thursday. WinPrizes will make up to three attempts to contact the user between 12:47pm on Wednesday and 12:47pm on Thursday. WinPrizes is not responsible if the winner is unable to speak to WinPrizes in the allotted time frame. Selection of winning entries is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
