The panel shall have sole discretion as to which entries are valid entries and the result of the prizes selection is final. No correspondence will be entered into.
- The 6 prize winners will be notified by email or telephone using the information provided on the entry form on or about 1 February 2018. Promoter shall make all reasonable attempts to engage winners. In order to receive the prizes, the winners must provide a copy of their personal identification and will be required to sign a statement of eligibility and a publicity/liability release by 12:00GMT on 3 February 2018.

Despite all reasonable efforts being made, the Promoter is not responsible for unsuccessful efforts to notify any potential winner.
