THE WINNER

Draw Based Competitions: All Entrants who correctly answer the Competition Question will be placed into a draw and the winner will be chosen by a verifiably random draw process. The entry lists will be published on the website (www.compcitygiveaways.co.uk/entries) before the live draw, showing every entrants ticket number, first name and last name. During the live draw this entry list will be shown and the winning ticket number will be selected at random using Google’s Random Number Generator live on our Facebook Page @CompcityUK (Compcity Giveaways), Youtube and Twitch TV. In the event of the draw being disrupted for any reason or having an inconclusive outcome, we can at our sole and unfettered discretion run the draw again, either through the same random draw process or an alternative method. 

The winner will be notified that they have won as soon as practicable after the live draw and the prize will be posted within seven days of the draw unless the prize is a pre-order, if so the prize will be posted once the pre-order is fulfilled by the supplier.

Instant Win Competitions: All Entrants who have entered an Instant Win Competition will be assigned a ticket. Winning tickets will be selected prior to the start date of the draw. Ticket Assignment and Winning Ticket Selection will both be performed using a verifiably random process.

The winner of a Prize in an Instant Win Game will receive an email and must follow the instructions contained in that email in order to claim the Prize.

The Promoter must either publish or make available information that indicates that a valid award took place. To comply with this obligation the Promoter will publish the full name and county/town of residence of major prize winners on the Website/social media unless you object in accordance with the below paragraph.

You must claim the Prize personally. The Prize may not be claimed by a third party on your behalf. Any Cash Prize will be transferred directly to the Winner’s nominated bank account. Details of how the Prize will be delivered to you (or made available for collection) are published on the Website, or available on request.

All Winners will be asked for their consent by the Promoter to provide photographs and/or pose for photographs and videos and have their personal details (including details of any Prize won by them) included in marketing material. If a Winner consents to the above, the foregoing photographs, videos and marketing material may be used in future marketing and public relations by the Promoter in connection with the Competition and in identifying them as a Winner of a Competition.

If you are the winner of the competition, you may be required to provide further personal information and proof of your identity in order to confirm your eligibility to claim the Prize and transfer ownership of the Prize to you. You consent to the use of your information in this way. You are entitled to request further details about how your personal information is being used.

The Promoter reserves the right to offer the Prize to the next eligible Entrant selected from the correct entries that were received before the Closing Date.

The promoters will be in no way liable for any failure or inability to contact any entrant due to errors, omissions or inaccuracies in the contact details provided by the entrant. If for any reason the Promoter is unable to contact a Winner within 7 working days (which may be extended at the sole discretion of the Promoter) of the end of a Competition, or the Winner fails for whatever reason or cause to confirm acceptance of the Prize and/or the Winner is disqualified as a result of not complying with or contravening any of these terms and conditions, the Winner hereby agrees that it will immediately, irrevocably and automatically forfeit the Prize and the Prize will remain in the possession and ownership of the Promoter and then the promoters will be entitled to award the prize to the entrant selected by drawing another random entry.

This will be the ‘Alternate Winner’, who will have 7 working days from notification of their status to accept the prize.

The decision of the Promoter is final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.

If Promoter fails to comply with these terms and conditions, Promoter is responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of Promoter’s breach of these terms and conditions or its negligence, but it is not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of the promoter’s breach or if they were contemplated by you and the Promoter at the time that you entered the competition.
