Competition/prize draw terms and conditions

Our standard conditions for Quire competitions and prize draws ("Promotions") are set out below. These took effect at 09:00am GMT on 1st of January 2013 and apply to all Promotion entries after this date.

Unless otherwise stated in the main Promotion entry details, all Promotions are only open to residents of the United Kingdom aged 18 or over. Members and contractors of Quire (and their respective dependents, immediate family members and individuals residing in their same household) are not eligible to participate. Quire shall not be liable for any entries that are incomplete, illegible, lost, late or misdirected. Entries made via third parties are not permitted. Entry into each and every Promotion requires acceptance of these terms and conditions. By entering a Promotion you agree to receive marketing communications from Quire about its events and promotions, by post, email, telephone and SMS unless you have expressly opted out.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Quire reserves the right at its sole discretion to amend, withdraw or revise the terms and conditions applicable to all Promotions; such alteration may be made at any time while a Promotion is open (but such changes will only apply to people who enter the Promotion after the date that such change is published (unless they expressly state otherwise)) at any time without any prior notice and in such event Quire shall not have any liability whatsoever.

Promotions open and close upon the dates stated in the main text describing the Promotion. Entries received after the closing date will not be accepted. In the case of prize draws, unless a different entry mechanic is specified in the main entry detail, winners shall be selected at random from all eligible, correct entries received. In the case of competitions, winners shall be selected from all eligible, correct entries received based on the judging criteria set out in the main text, by a judge. Draws/judging will take place on or about the date stated in the main text (or within 14 days after the closing date where no such date is specified), and the winner will be notified to the provided contact details within the timing indicated in the main text. Unless otherwise stated in the main text, entry is free and no purchase is necessary. Entry is limited to one per person. Promotions are void where prohibited by any applicable law. If any winner is not able, for whatever reason, to accept a prize within the deadline specified in the main text of the Promotion (or cannot be contacted within 14 days of the draw/judging date if no deadline is specified in the main text), Quire reserves the right to award the prize to another entrant.

Odds of winning depend upon the total number of entrants. Quire reserves the absolute right to determine eligibility and to select the winner based on records held by Quire, and reserves the right to disqualify anyone found to be participating or influencing any Promotion through any cheat, exploit or software, or anyone attempting to modify or alter the Quire website by any means. In determining eligibility and any selection of winners, Quire's decision shall be final. If a winner is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Rules the winner's prize will be forfeited and an alternate winner selected.

Quire reserves the right to substitute the prize(s) (or any part of them) for a prize or prizes of equivalent or greater monetary value if this is necessary for reasons beyond its control. There is no cash alternative to the prize(s) (or any part of them) and, unless agreed otherwise in writing, the prizes are non-refundable and non-transferable.


Except in the case of death or personal injury arising from its negligence, or in respect of fraud, and so far as is permitted by law, in relation to Promotions which are governed by these Rules, Quire excludes responsibility and all liabilities arising from: a) any postponement or cancellation of any and all Promotions, and b) any changes to, supply of (including, without limitation, prizes which do not reach the intended recipient) or use of any prize, and c) any act or default of any third party supplier, which are beyond the reasonable control of Quire.

By entering any Promotion, participants expressly agree that Quire may list or otherwise publicise the winner's name on Quire websites for up to 2 years after the closing date of the relevant Promotion. Quire may also reproduce winners' name and likenesses on such sites or in advertising and publicity material without further remuneration or compensation. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, by submitting, and upon such submission of, any information or materials such as (but not limited to) data, text, photographs, likeness, messages, voice, answers, or the like, or any other material (the "Content" for short) to Quire, you license and grant to Quire a non-exclusive, royalty-free and free of charge, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, copy, modify, adapt, communicate to the public, make available, publish, translate, create derivative works of, distribute, and display such Content or any concept described in it throughout the world in any media, product and/service so that Quire may make the fullest use of the Content, without compensation, or any restrictions on use, accountability or liability, and with waiver of all moral rights to the extent permitted by applicable laws.

Quire may expect the winner of the Promotion to take part in reasonable publicity relations activities and promotional events promoting Quire events and/or services. Any appearance made by the winner will be subject to a separate agreement made between Quire and the winner.
