TEMPTATIONS Sampling Competition T&C’s

By participating in this competition advertised by MARS on its website, you confirm that you accept and agree to these competition terms (the “Competition”).

The promoter of the Competition is Mars New Zealand Limited (117682) of Building 14/666 Great South Road, Ellerslie 1051, Auckland, NZ (“the Promoter”).

This Competition is only open to Eligible Entrants. An “Eligible Entrant” is an individual who is: (i) a New Zealand resident; (ii) lives or has a postal address within New Zealand; (iii) aged 18 or over; and (iv) not an employee of Mars, its agents, affiliates, contractors, consultants, or their families (including de facto spouses) or to other persons assisting with the Competition.

Entry into the Competition is open from 5:00pm, NZST, Sunday, 19 May 2024 to 5:00pm, NZST, Monday, 8 July 2024 (“Campaign Period”).

The competition will run online at temptationstreats.co.nz/competition. To enter the Competition, an Eligible Entrant must, during the Campaign Period, (a) visit the Temptations website at temptationstreats.co.nz/competition; and (b) complete the entry form, including selecting the tick box to consent to receive promotional and marketing materials from the Promoter. A maximum of one entry will be accepted per Eligible Entrant. Consenting to receive promotional and marketing materials from the Promoter is a condition of entry into the Competition.

The Promoter is not responsible or liable for any late entries or for any problems or technical malfunction which may result in delay or failure to enter into the Competition.

All information provided by an entrant is provided to the Promoter. Any queries, comments or complaints about this competition must be directed to the Promoter.

This is a game of chance and skill plays no part in the determination of the winners. There will be one random draw conducted at the end of the Campaign Period. The winners will be drawn by the Promoter at 9:00 am NZST on 11 July 2024 at the Promoter’s address. There will be two prize winners drawn randomly from an automated generator from the entries received during the Campaign Period (“the Prize Winners”). Each Prize Winner will receive one Prize. The Promoter may draw additional reserve entries in a draw and record them in order, in case a winning entry/entrant is deemed invalid or a Prize is unclaimed (“Reserve Entrants”).

The Promoter accepts no responsibility or liability for any Prize Winner’s enjoyment of any Prize or any other costs and expenses that may be incurred by the Prize Winners relating to the Prize or the Prize Winner’s enjoyment of that Prize.

The Prize is one year’s supply of TEMPTATIONS™ Tasty Chicken flavour cat treats (1 x 180g bag per month = 12 bags) valued at NZD $107 RRP (incl GST) (“the Prize”). There are two Prizes available and the total prize pool is valued at up to NZD $214 RRP (incl GST). The Prize will be supplied in one shipment to the Prize Winner’s nominated delivery address within New Zealand, at a time to be agreed between each Prize Winner and the Promoter.

The Promoter will notify the Prize Winners on 11 July 2024 via email (as submitted on their entry form). Entry into the Competition is deemed as consent for the Promoter to contact you as an entrant. To claim their Prize, the Prize Winners must respond to the Promoter with written acceptance of the Prize and providing details of their delivery address. If a Prize Winner does not claim the Prize within fourteen business days of being awarded a Prize, or the Promoter, after making all reasonable attempts, cannot contact a winner (or a winner does not respond to the Promoter), the selected entry/ies will be discarded and the Promoter will re-award the relevant Prize to a Reserve Entrant, without liability, and in its absolute discretion. The unclaimed Prize determination will take place on 31 July 2024 at the same location as the original draw to randomly distribute the Prize. The new Prize Winner/s will be notified by email within three business days of the Prize being re-drawn. If the Prize or any portion of it becomes unavailable for reasons beyond the Promoter’s control, the Promoter reserves the right to substitute it for another Prize of at least equal retail value.

Prizes cannot be transferred or exchanged or redeemed for cash. The Promoter takes no responsibility for entries or Prizes that are lost or destroyed.

Accepting the Prize constitutes a Prize Winner's consent to be photographed and/or interviewed by the Promoter and for the Promoter to use their name, city/town of residence, competition entry and/or photographs and interviews for Competition or publicity purposes without compensation or attribution of authorship. This includes on the Promoter’s website and social media platforms.

The decisions of the Promoter on all matters relating to this Competition are final and no correspondence will be entered into. The Promoter reserves the right to discard any entry it deems in its absolute discretion to contravene these terms and conditions. The Promoter may verify the validity of an entry or a Prize Winner's right to redeem the Prize in accordance with these terms and conditions.  Where the Competition is not capable of operating as planned, the Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to amend, cancel, terminate, modify or suspend these terms and conditions and the Competition at any time and without prior notice.

To the extent permitted by law, the Promoter excludes any liability it may have to entrants arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with the Competition.
