Terms and conditions: win two tickets to Ultra Europe festival in Croatia

Here are the conditions of entry which apply to Lonely Planet’s ‘Win two tickets to Ultra Europe festival in Croatia ’ promotion.  Please read them carefully, as they contain important stuff you should know.

Who’s running the show?

The promoter is Lonely Planet Publications Ltd (3970494) of Media Centre, 201 Wood Lane, London, W12 7TQ, United Kingdom. Our friends at Media Val are our promotional partner.

Information about the prizes and how to enter form part of these conditions of entry. Participation in this promotion constitutes acceptance of these conditions of entry.  These conditions of entry may change from time to time without notice.

The promotional period is from 10:30am GMT on Friday 23 May 2014 and ends at 6.00pm GMT on Friday 30 May 2014 (Promotion Period).

These conditions of entry are governed by the laws of England.

Can I play?

This promotion is open to legal residents of the United Kingdom who are aged 18 years or above. You won’t be eligible to win this promotion if you (or your immediate family including parents, children, siblings, partner and grandparents, or housemates) are directors, management, employees, officers or contractors of Lonely Planet, our promotional partner or their subsidiaries or parent or affiliated companies.

How do I play?

You don’t have to buy anything to enter or win, but during the Promotion Period you will need to:

  1. Have a valid, registered Twitter account; and
  2. Tell us in a tweet to @lonelyplanet and @UltraEurope in no more than 10 words why you’d like to go to Ultra Europe.

You can enter as many times as you like.  Your entry is received at the time Lonely Planet sees your tweet.  Incomplete and invalid entries will not be accepted.  If your entry gets lost in cyberspace or doesn’t arrive for any other reason, that’s not Lonely Planet’s fault.

Lonely Planet might have to extend the dates of the promotion but only if it’s totally unavoidable (for example, if Twitter is unavailable for 24 hours or more) and we’ll let you know if we do.

How do you pick the winner?

All eligible entries will be judged on quality and creativity, and the best and most inspiring entry will win the Prize. This is a game of skill and there is no element of chance in this promotion.

Judging will take place on 30 May 2014 at Lonely Planet London office at Media Centre MC2 C5, 201 Wood Lane, London (or at an undisclosed location otherwise determined as required by Lonely Planet).  The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into, even if you think that sucks.  Lady luck has nothing to do with this promotion.

Lonely Planet reserves the right to disqualify any entrant who has engaged in unlawful or improper conduct that is designed to jeopardise the fair conduct of the promotion or is generally damaging to the reputation of Lonely Planet, or has otherwise breached these conditions of entry (as determined in Lonely Planet’s sole discretion). Lonely Planet may determine, in its sole discretion, if an entry is suitable and may disqualify any entrant who submits content it deems to be objectionable or offensive (even though such content might not be offensive to everyone).

Lonely Planet can cancel or modify the promotion if there are compelling technical or administrative reasons which we cannot control.  If that happens, Lonely Planet will select the winner(s) from all eligible entries received at that time.

What can I win?

The best and most inspiring entry, as determined by the judges, will receive:

  • 2 x entry tickets for Ultra Europe music festival in Split, Croatia. 10-13 July 2014 at Poljud Stadium (First Prize).

The Prize must be taken on the date specified, being 10-13 July 2014 or otherwise will be forfeited.

Prize does not include meals, transfers, transport, accommodation, spending money, insurance and any other expenses that may incur unless specified in the prize description.

How do I find out if I won?

On 2 June 2014 we’ll give notice to the Prize winner by tweeting their username from @lonelyplanet. The winner must respond and claim their prize by e-mailing us at social@lonelyplanet.com within 48 hours of notification or we will pick another winner on 4 June 2014. We’ll then sort out any details required for the prize with the winner by email.

Lonely Planet will do its best to find the winner.  But if we can’t, or if a prize winner hasn’t contacted us within 48 hours of us tweeting their username, the next best entry may be declared the winner of the Prize.

Finding out about the winner

If you’re riddled with curiosity, send an email to social@lonelyplanet.com (including the name of the promotion) within 3 months of the closing date of the promotion, and we’ll respond and tell you who won.

If you do win …

We may ask you to provide proof of identify, residency and age. If you can’t provide, or refuse to provide, suitable proof, then you may be disqualified, and we may choose another winner.

You can’t exchange any of the prizes for cash, or ask us to give it to someone else (not that you’d want to!). We will use reasonable efforts to award the prize as described but if we are unable to do that, we may substitute it either for cash or another prize of comparable value, but we’ll decide which.

If, in order to take the prize, you’re lucky enough to need a valid passport and/or other necessary travel documentation and visas, you’ll need to sort those out for yourself (including finding out what documents you need).

You are responsible for your use of the prize, including complying with any applicable terms and conditions of use, including any applicable conditions of entry to venues.  Of course, if you win a prize, you’ll be good and comply with all relevant laws, rules and regulations.

Lonely Planet and our promotional partner are not responsible for use of the prize which results in:

(a)loss that was not reasonably foreseeable;

(b)loss that was not caused by our negligence;

(c)business losses (such as lost data, lost profits or business interruptions) or loss suffered by non-consumers;

(d)losses caused by factors which could reasonably be considered to be outside our control (such as faults in third party equipment, or delayed or cancelled flights); and

(e)any loss caused, or contributed to, by your breach of conditions of entry or your   negligence.
