  1. Eligibility

The Draw is open to all entrants who follow the link which will be sent via e-shot to the Kildare Village database members, and will also be available on the Kildare Village Twitter account and the Kildare Village Facebook page (the “Link”) and who validly enter the Draw by following the steps outlined in Clause 4 below (the “Entrants”). Entries are not permitted from employees of the Producer, including employees of their parent, subsidiaries and affiliate companies. By entering this Draw, Entrants expressly agree to the following:

  1. that the Draw is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Twitter or Facebook;
  2. to be bound unconditionally by these Terms and Conditions; and
  3. that the Producer can use the information supplied to contact an Entrant to the extent reasonably required in connection with the Draw.

The Producer reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Draw.  The Producer’s decisions are final and binding on all matters related to the Draw. Failure to adhere to these Terms and Conditions will result in immediate disqualification from the Draw. These Terms and Conditions are subject to all applicable laws and regulations in Ireland.

  1. How to Enter the Draw

In order to enter the Draw, Entrants must:

  • follow the Link to the dedicated webpage for the Draw; and
  • insert their name, email address and contact number where indicated and submit.

Entrants should note that there is only one (1) entry permitted per Entrant. Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations and logins, or any other methods will void that Entrant’s entry and that Entrant will be immediately disqualified.

By entering this Draw, Entrants hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Producer from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, reasonable legal fees, court costs and expenses resulting or arising from any third party claims, actions, proceedings, investigations or litigation to the extent that they relate to or arise from any breach by an Entrant of these Terms and Conditions or from any negligence, intentional misconduct or omission of an Entrant except to the extent that the losses are determined to have resulted from the negligence, intentional misconduct, omission or breach of statutory duty of the Producer.

In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorised account holder of the email account registered with the Kildare Village database will be deemed to be the entrant (the “Authorised Account Holder”). Entrants may be required to show proof of being the Authorised Account Holder. No responsibility will be accepted for entries that are lost, late, misdirected, incorrect, invalid, unintelligible or incompletely received, for any reason, including by reason of hardware, software, browser, or network failure, malfunction, congestion, or incompatibility at the Producer’s servers or elsewhere.

  1. Verification of Winner

The winning Entrant (the “Winner”) will be chosen at random on 26 May 2017 from those Entrants who enter the Draw. The Producer will notify the Winner that they have won the Prize (as defined below in Clause 6) by sending an email to the email account of the Winner on 26 May 2017 (the “Notification”).

The Winner must claim the Prize by responding to the Notification within 24 hours of sending, by sending an email response to the Promoter confirming their: (a) name; (b) contact details; and (c) acceptance of the Prize (the “Confirmation”).

Once Confirmation is received by the Promoter, a representative of the Producer’s staff will contact the Winner to make arrangements for redemption of the Prize. In the event that no such Confirmation is received, the Winner declines their Prize or provides an incomplete or unsatisfactory response to the Promoter, then the Promoter is entitled to choose an alternative Winner at random from the other Entrants, and reallocate the Prize.
