CLOSER MAGAZINE TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. These terms and conditions together with any specific rules displayed or referred to on the relevant page of Closer magazine in respect of a prize draw or competition (a “Prize Draw Notice”) and Bauer’s General Terms and Conditions (available online at http://www.bauerlegal.co.uk/ competition-terms.html) are the prize draw rules (the “Rules”) that apply to each and every prize draw and/or competition of any nature included in Closer magazine (a “Prize Draw”) unless otherwise expressly stated in the Prize Draw Notice. By entering a Prize Draw, entrants agree to be bound by these Rules. 2. Each Prize Draw is organised by Closer magazine, part of Bauer Consumer Media Limited of registered address Media House, Lynchwood, Peterborough Business Park Peterborough, PE2 6EA (“Bauer”). In the event of a discrepancy between these terms and conditions and the Prize Draw Notice, the Prize Draw Notice shall prevail. 3. Bauer reserves the right to cancel or amend a Prize Draw at any time without prior notice. 4. All Prize Draw entrants must be over 18 years of age at the date of entry and resident in the UK. Proof of age may be required before a prize-winner can claim a prize. The eligibility of any entrant is at the sole discretion of Bauer. Employees and agents of Bauer and its associated companies (including the families of such employees and agents) are not eligible to enter a Prize Draw. Only one entry per person and per household is permitted. Additional eligibility requirements may apply to a specific Prize Draw, e.g. a valid passport, visas and/or driver’s licence will be required if the Prize Draw’s prize includes travel outside the United Kingdom and/or car hire. 5. Prize Draw entries must be made in accordance with the Rules and must be received by Bauer before the closing date specified in the Prize Draw Notice (the “Closing Date”). Entries made otherwise will be invalid. 6. No payment is necessary to enter a Prize Draw. Unless otherwise stated in the Prize Draw Notice, all Prize Draws are entered by sending an appropriately worded e-mail to the email address specified in the Prize Draw Notice. Any such e-mail must include a postal address to contact you at in connection with the Prize Draw and otherwise must comply with any instructions for submitting such email entry set out in the Prize Draw Notice (for example, to identify which Prize Draw is being entered). Each Prize Draw must be entered by a separate email. Alternative means of entering a Prize Draw – if any – may be set out in the Prize Draw Notice and where there are alternative means of entering a Prize Draw no distinction shall be made between entries received by any means prescribed under the Rules. 7. Prize-winners will (unless specified otherwise in the Prize Draw Notice) be chosen at random by an independent judge from all qualifying entries. In all matters, the decision of the judge(s) shall be final and no correspondence or discussion shall be entered into. 8. Prize-winners will be notified in writing within 6 weeks of the Closing Date. 9. If a prize-winner fails to respond to correspondence from Bauer and/or fails (for whatever reason) to claim his/her prize within 14 days of receipt of Bauer’s notification, Bauer shall be entitled to select an alternative prize-winner. In such circumstances Bauer shall use reasonable endeavours to notify the alternative prize-winner within nine weeks of the Closing Date. 10. Prize-winners will receive their prize within 6 weeks of notification unless otherwise specified in the Prize Draw Rules. 11. Details of the names of prize-winners can be requested by writing to Closer at Academic House, 24-28 Oval Road, Camden, London NW1 7DJ, specifying the relevant Prize Draw, provided that such request is received by Bauer within ten weeks of the Closing Date. 12. Every prize is subject to availability and Bauer may substitute any prize for a prize of a similar nature and/or comparable value. There is no cash alternative to any prize and no prize is refundable and/or transferable. 13. Bauer accepts no responsibility or liability for any lost, damaged or incomplete entries and all such entries will be deemed invalid. Proof of despatch shall not be proof of entry. Only entries received in accordance with the Rules will be acceptable. 14. Bauer will not be liable if a prize does not reach a prize-winner for any reason outside the control of Bauer or if a prize is damaged during delivery. 15. Entries shall not be returned to entrants. 16. Prize-winners agree to take part in any promotional activity requested by Bauer and consent to his/her name, county and photograph being published for the purposes of the Prize Draw and promoting Closer and/or Bauer and its business. 19. Where relevant, all taxes, insurances, transfers, spending money and other expenses (including meals or personal expenses upgrades etc.) are, unless otherwise specifically stated, the sole responsibility of each prize-winner. 20. The terms and conditions of any third party supplier may apply and must be accepted and complied with by a prizewinner to accept the prize. 21. Bauer may vary the terms of, or vary the Prize Draw at any time at its absolute discretion without liability to any entrant or other person. 22. Other than for death or personal injury arising from negligence of Bauer, Bauer hereby excludes (so far as is permitted by law) all liability for any loss, damage, cost and expense, whether direct or indirect, howsoever caused in connection with the Prize Draw or any aspect of the prize. 23. These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed and performed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, whose courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to decide any dispute arising under them.
