Our commercial partners, advertisers and sponsors are responsible for the content and accuracy of any such advertising, sponsorship, promotion or other paid-for or partnership material, and its compliance with applicable law and regulation. Story+ Limited will not be responsible for any error, omission or inaccuracy in any such material.

Promotions and Competitions:

The general terms in this section apply to all competitions, prize draws or other promotion (henceforth "competition") which we may run on our website, social media platforms or otherwise. Please note that each competition will have its own specific rules, entry requirements and instructions and may be published on this website, our social media platforms, or our partners' websites or social media platforms. If any such specific rules conflict with these general terms, the specific rules will prevail.

 

Any failure to comply with the terms in this section, and the terms, conditions, rules, requirements or instructions pertaining to individual competitions (henceforth "specific rules"), may result in your disqualification, at our discretion, after which point we reserve the right to select another entrant, winner or withdraw the prize as applicable.

In-line with our commitment to transparency outlined above (see Advertising, Partnerships and Sponsors), we will make clear to you any commercial arrangement or payment that results in our ability to run a competition.

Entering a Competition:

Each competition will be open to individuals aged 18 or over (at the time they enter the competition) who are UK residents and based in the UK at the time of entering the competition. Our employees, agencies, partners, licensees, freelancers, contractors and their immediate family members or households, and anyone else professionally involved with the respective competition, are excluded from entering ("excluded individuals").

You must follow the entry instructions outlined in the specific rules of the competition - usually found in the social media post or image associated with the competition. We accept no responsibility for entries which are incorrectly spelled, ineligible or corrupt, or for entries that haven't reached us properly for any reason - such as network error, third party platform faults or technical problems. Entries received after the closing time will not be accepted.

When entering a competition you must provide us with your full, real name. Where your entry is via social media and you don't provide us with your full name, we will use the name associated with the social media account from which you entered the competition (by commenting, sharing, liking or otherwise engaging with the post/s as required by the specific rules). If you do not want your real name to be disclosed publicly, please contact us using the methods outlined at the top of this page in advance.

Unless specified in the specific rules, you can only enter our competitions once. You may not enter a competition if you have been given the answer/s or other relevant information linked to the competition, directly or indirectly by any excluded individual.

Use of your entry:

By entering a competition or submitting content or information to us in relation to a competition, or if you mention us directly in any social media content in connection with the competition, you agree that we and our partners can share, re-post and otherwise publicise that entry in whole or in part without any accompanying comments or information.  We may publish your name, approximate location and other details in connection with the competition at any time. 

Winning a Competition:

Unless otherwise specified in the specific rules, there will only be one competition winner selected at random via an automated process.

If you win a competition, we will contact you within 28 days of the closing date. Unless otherwise specified (or dictated by the date or availability of any prize), you will need to respond to us within 28 days and follow the instructions provided to you to claim your prize. We may require proof of ID, age and address. Once you've provided us with this information, and any other details necessary for us to provide you with the prize as described, we will send you the prize by appropriate means (electronically or physically) within 28 days. 

The prize or prizes will be described in the specific rules. Any imagery used to accompany these descriptions is for illustrative purposes only and some details may vary. Anything that is not expressly included in the prize description in the specific rules is not included as part of the prize. Examples include, but are not limited to, transport, meals, refreshments, accommodation and insurance. Where a competition prize involves an event, you acknowledge that it is subject to the terms and conditions of the venue, promoter, ticket operator or event controller and you must comply with any additional terms and conditions of attendance, including but not limited to event-specific instructions and health and safety requirements.

We will not be liable for any prizes which are lost, damaged or destroyed (electronically or physically) in transit. Whilst we and our partners try to provide competition prizes as described and in a timely way, we cannot guarantee that prizes will be exactly as described. Occasionally, circumstances beyond our reasonable control might make it difficult or impossible to provide the prize as described, or at all. If we and our partner/s consider it possible and appropriate, an alternative prize or prizes might be provided at our sole discretion. The prize cannot be used in conjunction with other offers, competitions or prizes. 

Unless otherwise specified in the competition specific rules, you may not win more than one prize per competition. We reserve the right to withhold or reclaim any additional prize.

Each prize is subject to availability and no cash equivalent is available. Prizes are non-transferable and non-refundable. Where prizes are time-specific (such as entry tickets for events, holidays or days out) they must be taken on the dates specified by us. You will not be entitled to receive a prize which, for any reason, you would be prohibited by law from purchasing, using, owning or possessing. Any tax or other charge payable in conjunction with the prize will be your sole responsibility. If this is of concern you should speak to a financial advisor. 

Data Protection (Competitions):

Your personal data and the personal data of any nominated guests or companions that you provide to us will be collected and processed by us and any partners named in the specific rules, and if applicable our service providers and suppliers, in order to run and fulfill the competition as described here and in the specific rules. Your personal data may also be disclosed to governmental or regulatory bodies at their reasonable request, for example, in order to prevent, investigate or detect crime or fraudulent behaviour. If you are required to submit a guest's personal data to us in order to enter a competition, or claim a prize, you must ensure that your guest has given you consent to provide us with their personal data, which will be dealt with in the same way as yours.

We may hold your personal data for up to two years in order to comply with our regulatory obligations. By entering a competition, you acknowledge that any personal data provided by you in connection with the competition will be processed as explained above and in accordance with our Privacy Policy which can also be found on this page. This Privacy Policy also sets out details on how we process personal data and how you can exercise your rights in relation to it - including requesting its withdrawal from our systems. Please note, if you request the removal of your personal details from our database by following the steps within our Privacy Policy before the conclusion of any competition, you will forfeit your right to enter the competition or claim any prize. 

Liability (Competitions):

Your entry and participation in any competition and/or prize is at your own risk. If the competition or prize requires you to undertake any physical activity, please ensure, before entering the competition, that you are in good health. If you have a disability, please make this clear to us when you claim any prize, so we can work with you and our partners to try to make any such reasonable adjustments as are practical and within our control, based on the circumstances, to ensure you can enjoy the prize to the fullest extent.

We cannot guarantee that the services or systems for entering any competition will be free from omissions or errors. We make no representation, warranty or guarantee in relation to prizes provided and, subject to the provisions set out on this page and statutory rights which cannot lawfully be waived, we will have no liability to you in relation to any prize, its value, perceived value, fitness for purpose, or otherwise.

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend any competition, prize or terms if we consider it necessary or appropriate to do so for reasons beyond our reasonable control, or if there has been an error or omission in the marketing or availability of the competition or prize. These competition terms, including any specific terms in any given competition, represent the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the competition and the prize. The invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability of the whole or any part of these terms does not affect the remainder of the terms, which will remain in full effect. The terms do not create any right or benefit enforceable on any third party.

Any queries related to any competition on any of the Leeds+ or Story+ Limited platforms, should be directed via email to hello@leedsplus.social or via the postal address available at the top of this page.
