Competition terms and conditions

The following rules are applicable to the Nolte Kitchens competition / promotions, (referred to herein as ‘competition’) conducted by or on behalf of Cordev Corporate Marketing & Development (hereafter called Cordev) until amended.

These rules will be deemed incorporated in each competition except to the extent that any specific instruction in a competition (hereafter called the ‘competition instructions’) provides otherwise, in which case the competition instructions shall take precedence.

By entering the competition, entrants (or a particular entrant) together with any other member of the public involved (all such persons being referred to as ‘entrant’) hereby agree to be bound by these rules as amended from time to time, and by any competition instructions.

It is the responsibility of entrants to keep themselves informed as to any updates of these rules, and they acknowledge that any failure to comply with these rules could lead to their disqualification without reasons being given or opportunity for challenge.

1. The Judges shall, unless provided otherwise in the competition instructions, be the Director for the time being of Cordev and/or his nominated representative(s), and “Judges” herein shall mean such person or persons. In the case of a competition involving the judging of skill there shall be at least one judge independent of Cordev.

2.1 The general principle is fairness: entries should be made fairly. If, in the opinion of the Judges this principle has been flouted, they can declare any entries invalid, void the competition, change the competition instructions, or adjust the entries to achieve fairness, as they think fit. The competition instructions may carry a specific indication, but in the absence of such an indication, only one entry per entrant (or household, computer or other unit as appropriate) will be permitted.

2.2 The decision of the Judges over every instance shall be final and unchallengeable and in their absolute discretion they may declare void any entry/ vote or the competition itself should they consider that there are no entries reaching a required standard, whereupon they can award prizes or not as they think fit. Judges shall have the right, at their discretion, to change the rules of a competition while it is running if it appears to them that it would be equitable or appropriate to do so, including the extension of the closing date whereupon there will be an announcement of any such extension at the first reasonable opportunity. No correspondence will be entered into or comment issued on any matters concerning any competition, and no reasons given for any decision made by the Judges.

4.1 All entries must be legible and made on the official form, if there is one, or the official page on the website. They must be clearly marked with the entrant’s name, address, email address and telephone number as requested. Any illegible, mutilated, altered, corrupted or multiple entry may be disqualified.

4.2 Entries must be made in accordance with the competition instructions. They are invalid if they are received any later than the specified closing time (which shall be Johannesburg date and time).

4.3 No prize are redeemable for cash.

4.4 All questions must be answered and all other entry requirements fulfilled, competition entry must be accompanied by the appropriate entry proof.

5. Cordev and The African Business Channel reserve the right to publish the names of the winners and the winning entries themselves, and all winners are required to give their full co-operation to all requests by Cordev, The African Business Channel or a promoter in connection with publicity for the competition, their entry, the prize or otherwise.

Cordev and The African Business Channel will not accept any liability to the extent permitted by law for any cost, claims or losses howsoever caused that arise by reason of any person’s entry into a competition or the award, or non award, to them of a prize. In the event of any error, whether printing, technological or otherwise, which affects the competition in any way, the Judges reserve the right to administer the competition as though the error had not occurred.

9.2 If any winner of a competition is unable to take up a prize for any reason, or if Cordev or The African Business Channel has not been able, after making reasonable efforts, to make contact with the winner, Cordev or The African Business Channel reserve the right to award that prize (without notice to the first winner chosen) to an alternative winner, in which case the first winner chosen shall not be eligible for any share of the prize whatsoever.
