3. Unless otherwise stated in the Specific Rules registration, entry or vote is limited to 1 per person. Where
multiple registrations, entries or votes are acceptable, each must be made separately.

discretion) has violated the Rules (including the Specific Rules), gained unfair advantage in participating in the
Promotion or won using fraudulent means.
9. By participating, entrants grant NZME exclusive permission to use their names, characters, photographs,
videos, voices and likeness in connection with the Promotion and for future promotion and marketing
purposes and waive any claims to royalty, right or remuneration for such use.

Winning the Prize
13. Only the person who originally entered the Promotion can be awarded the prize (the ‘Winner’).
14. The Winner will be determined in the manner set out in the Rules or the Specific Rules – if not specified then as
determined by the Promoter who shall for this purpose be deemed the judge (the ‘Judge’).
15. The Judge’s determination of the Winner will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
16. The Winner will be notified by email, phone (voice or text), mail or in person and must be available for the
preparation of all publicity that may be required by NZME. Where attempts to contact the Winner fail (eg
when the Winner cannot be contacted by phone after three attempts or mail sent is returned) the Judge will
select another winner. If, after successful notification, the prize is not collected within two months of being
announced it will be regarded as forfeit. (Note: 3 attempts to contact the Winner will include individual calls to
any numbers provided at the time of entry. However, should the prize’s total worth equal less than NZD$250
and be a live-to-air draw, only one failed attempt at contact will be acceptable before the Judge selects
another winner.)
17. The Prize is not redeemable for cash or transferable. No other family members, friends, office associates or
any other person will be able to participate on the Winner’s behalf. In the event that the Prize specified in the
Competition becomes unavailable for any reason the Promoter may substitute a prize of like or equal value.
18. Where the Winner is required to claim the prize in person, they must provide proper identification (eg driver’s
licence, passport, birth certificate). If the Winner is under the age of 18 years their parent or legal guardian must
accompany the Winner or give their prior written consent to the award of the Prize.
19. The Winner takes the Prize entirely at his/her own risk and indemnifies NZME in respect of any claim for any
accident, injury, property damage or loss of life that may occur in connection with the prize. The Winner is
responsible for all insurance, tax or other costs that may be associated with the Prize. Where the Prize has
associated terms and conditions the Winner accepts the Prize subject to those terms and conditions and
20. Where the Prize includes air travel and/or accommodation, either international or domestic (the ‘Travel Prize’):
(1) the Winner MUST have valid documentation, including but not limited to valid passports and Visas, which
meet the requirements of immigration and other government authorities at every destination.
(a) Any fines, penalties, payments or expenditures incurred as a result of such documents not meeting
the requirements of those authorities (including any costs associated with delay, will be the sole
responsibility of the Winner).
(b) When the Travel Prize includes travel to or through the United States, it is the Winner’s responsibility
when travelling into or through (transiting included) the United States under the Visa Waiver Program
to apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) no later than 72 hours prior to
departure if required. The winner must visit the US Department of Homeland Security website and fill
in the required information. The cost of the ESTA is the sole responsibility of the Winner.
(2) The Winner and their travelling companion (if applicable) must travel together at all times. The Winner is
responsible for transport from their residence to their nearest international airport for flight departure and
from their nearest international airport to their residence upon returning to New Zealand.
(3) Flight tickets are available on the regular scheduled services of each airline and are subject to seasonal
embargos. The flight itinerary may have to be adjusted depending on the airline's departure city and their
current flight schedule. Unless otherwise specified, the air travel is economy class.
(4) Any changes to travel dates or additional accommodation outside the travel period specified in the Travel
Prize details, made by the winner, which incur additional costs, are to be paid by the Travel Prize winner.
(5) Unless explicitly stated in the Specific Rules, the Winner will be responsible for expenses including, but not
limited to, spending money, meals, drinks, transport, laundry charges, activities, incidentals, taxes
(excluding departure and any other flight associated taxes included within the Travel Prize), gratuities,
services charges, passports, visas, travel insurance and all other ancillary costs associated with redeeming
the Travel Prize. The Winner must obtain travel insurance to protect themselves against additional costs
incurred in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
(6) The Travel Prize is not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for cash. The Travel Prize
must be taken as stated in the Specific Rules and no compensation will be payable if the Winner is unable
to use the Travel Prize as stated. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Winner is, for whatever reason, unable
to travel on a nominated date during this period, whether the failure was due to reasons beyond the
Winner's control or otherwise, then the Winner will forfeit the Travel Prize.
(7) The Promoter makes no representation as to safety, conditions and other issues that may exist at any
destination. International travel advice can be obtained from various sources, including government, local
consular offices and the web site of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The winner
accepts the Travel Prize at their own risk.
(8) All travel is subject to the terms, conditions and restrictions of the Travel Prize service providers. Any
travelling companion included in the Travel Prize (if applicable) accepts the Travel Prize subject to these
terms, conditions and restrictions as if references to the Winner in the relevant clauses were to the
travelling companion. The Winner and their travelling companion must sign a legal release, in a form
acceptable to the Promoter in its absolute discretion, if requested by the Promoter.
