Birthday Giveaway Terms & Conditions

General

These terms and conditions, together with the terms and conditions that are specific to any Competition and/or Giveaway (as defined below) (the ‘Competition and/or Giveaway Terms’) are known as the ‘Rules’.

In the event of any conflict between the Competition and/or Giveaway Terms and the Standard Terms, the Competition and/or Giveaway Terms shall prevail.

  1. The Rules apply to any Competition and/or Giveaway (the ‘Competition and/or Giveaway’) that is promoted on the Persephone Magazine website (http://persephonemagazine.com) and by entering the Competition and/or Giveaway, you agree to be bound by the Rules.
  2. Persephone Magazine reserves the right to cancel or amend all or any part of the Competition and/or Giveaway and/or the Rules without notice for any event that is outside of Persephone Magazine’s reasonable control. Any changes to the Rules, or cancellation of the Competition and/or Giveaway, will be posted on the Persephone Magazine website (http://persephonemagazine.com). It is the responsibility of entrants to keep themselves informed as to any changes to the Rules.
  3. In the event of any dispute regarding the Rules, the conduct or results of the Competition and/or Giveaway, or any other matter relating to a Competition and/or Giveaway, the decision of Persephone Magazine shall be final and unchallengeable and no correspondence or discussion shall be entered into, comment issued, or reason given in respect of any decision made by Persephone Magazine.

  5. In the event that a Prize-winner is disqualified from the Competition and/or Giveaway, Persephone Magazine will, unless otherwise stated in the Competition and/or Giveaway Terms, select an alternative Prize-winner in the same manner as the original Prize-winner and such selection will be subject to the Rules.
