In order to enter the Promotion, Entrants must follow Kildare Village on Instagram at and on Twitter at where they will be encouraged to share photos of any or all of the 6 (six) Kildare Village reindeers  on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #KildareVillage (the “Hashtag”) and suggesting names for all or any of the reindeers.   By sharing the pictures and using the Hashtag in this way, Entrants will be deemed to have entered the Promotion, subject to the other terms and conditions set out herein. 


Participation by the Entrants in this Promotion constitutes the Entrants’ consent to the unlimited use by the Producer of all images uploaded by the Entrants for the purposes of the Promotion onto the Producer’s social media platforms, online tools, and other promotional media used by the Producer.

In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorised account holder of the social media account which is used for the purposes of entering the Entrant into the Promotion will be deemed to be the registrant or player (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. Entrant Indemnity

By entering this Promotion, 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.  

  1. Verification of Winner

On each of the following dates during the Promotion Period,  1, 5, 11, 15, 18 and 22 December 2017, 1 (one) winning Entrant (each a “Winner”) will be picked at random by computer generated selection from those Entrants who enter the Promotion in accordance with Clause 4 above, subject to a maximum of 6 (six) Winners in total being chosen by the Producer.  The name proposed by each Winner will be assigned to the respective Village reindeer. The Producer will notify each Winner that they have won the Prize by sending a private message to the Authorised Account Holder’s social media account within 2 (two) days of being selected at random (the “Notification”).

The Winner must respond to the Notification, within 5 (five) days of receipt, by sending an email response to the Producer confirming their: (a) name; (b) contact details; and (c) acceptance of the Prize (as defined under Clause 7 below)(the “Confirmation”).

Once the Confirmation is received by the Producer, 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 Producer, then the Producer is entitled to choose an alternative Winner, pursuant to the process above, and reallocate the Prize.
