The Promoter may also collect, use and disclose PI as set out in the terms of its respective Privacy Policies, which can be viewed at http://www.readersdigest.com.au/privacy-policy(for Australian residents) and http://www.readersdigest.co.nz/privacy-policy (for New Zealand residents). In addition to any use that may be outlined in the Promoter’s Privacy Policies, the Promoter may, for an indefinite period, unless otherwise advised, use the PI for promotional, marketing, publicity, research and profiling purposes, including sending electronic messages or telephoning the entrant. The Australian Privacy Policy also contains our Privacy Office contact details and information about how Australian entrants may opt out, access, update or correct their PI, how entrants may complain about a breach of the Privacy Principles or any other applicable law and how those complaints will be dealt with. All New Zealand entrants should direct any request to access, update or correct information to the Promoter. All entries become the property of the Promoter. The Promoter may disclose entrantsʼ personal information collected in Australia to entities outside of Australia (for a list of the countries, see the Promoterʼs Privacy Policy).
  16. The promotional material, information on how to enter, and the conditions of entry described in them form part of the Terms and Conditions.
  17. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions limits, excludes or modifies or purports to limit, exclude or modify the statutory consumer guarantees as provided under the Competition and Consumer Act, as well as any other implied warranties under the ASIC Act or similar consumer protection laws in the States and Territories of Australia and/or New Zealand (“Non-Excludable Guarantees”). Except for any liability that cannot by law be excluded, including the Non-Excludable Guarantees, the Promoter (including its respective officers, employees and agents) excludes all liability (including negligence), for any personal injury; or any loss or damage (including loss of opportunity); whether direct, indirect, special or consequential, arising in any way out of the promotion.
  18. Except for any liability that cannot by law be excluded, including the Non-Excludable Guarantees, the Promoter (including its respective officers, employees and agents) is not responsible for and excludes all liability (including negligence), for any personal injury; or any loss or damage (including loss of opportunity); whether direct, indirect, special or consequential, arising in any way out of:
    1. any technical difficulties or equipment malfunction (whether or not under the Promoter’s control);
    2. any theft, unauthorised access or third party interference;
    3. any entry or prize claim that is late, lost, altered, damaged or misdirected (whether or not after their receipt by the Promoter) due to any reason beyond the reasonable control of the Promoter;
    4. any tax liability incurred by a winner or entrant;
    5. use of a prize; or
    6. Any breach whereby PI is disclosed.
  19. The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of entries and entrants (including an entrant’s identity, age and place of residence) and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who the Promoter has reason to believe has breached any of these Terms and Conditions, tampered with the entry process including but not limited to tampering by way of use of techniques designed to avoid the payment of SMS costs or engaged in any unlawful or other improper misconduct calculated to jeopardise fair and proper conduct of the promotion. Errors and omissions may be accepted at the Promoter's discretion. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights. The Promoter's legal rights to recover damages or other compensation from such an offender are reserved. Incomplete, indecipherable, inaudible or illegible entries will be deemed invalid. Where purchase of a product is required for entry into a draw, return or non-payment of such product by the draw date/time, will result in that entrant being ineligible for a prize in that draw.
  20. If there is a dispute as to the identity of an entrant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the identity of the entrant.
  21. Online entries close at 11.59pm AEST/ AESDT on the deadline date stated. Entries are deemed to be received at the time of receipt into the Monthly Draw database and NOT at the time of transmission by the entrant.
  22. Any cost associated with accessing any promotional website is the entrantʼs responsibility and is dependent on the internet service provider used. The Promoter accepts no responsibility for late, non-directed or misdirected e-mail, for any technical hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer transmission or any human error which may occur in the receipt or processing of entries. Further, the Promoter accepts no responsibility for damage to computer systems from downloading any information necessary to participate in a Monthly Draw. The Promoter (subject to relevant authorities) reserves the right to suspend, terminate or modify a Monthly Draw or the online portion of the Monthly Draw at any time if the Promoterʼs online service is no longer available or is compromised by any virus, bugs, or other intervention beyond the Promoterʼs control. In either of these events, prizes may be awarded based on electronic entries received prior to date of termination and mail-in entries and entries received via any other advertised method as of the closing date. The Promoter reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any entrant who tampers with any entry process or is in any other way responsible for compromising the orderly operation of a Monthly Draw. The use of any automated software or any other mechanical or electronic means that allows an entrant to automatically enter repeatedly is prohibited and will render all entries submitted by that entrant invalid.
  23. As a condition of accepting a prize, each winner may be required to sign any legal documentation as and in the form required by the Promoter and/or prize suppliers in their absolute discretion, including but not limited to a legal release and indemnity form.
