Access to our site is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our site without notice. From time to time, it may become necessary to restrict access to part, or all of, our site to users who have registered with us.

If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these terms of use.

When using our site, you must comply with the provisions of our acceptable use policy. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our site through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them.

4. Competitions and Prizes

These rules apply to all prize promotions including free draws, prize competitions and instant win offers.

From time to time we will run competitions, free prize draws and promotions on this website and on our social media channels. These may be subject to additional terms that will be made available at the time. Promotions are open to UK residents only. Prizes are non-transferable, non-negotiable and no cash alternatives will be offered. Global Cool and the promoter reserve the right to substitute the prize for another prize of equal value.

No purchase necessary to enter the competitions unless otherwise stated on the promotional activity with a specific competition. By entering the prize draw, the entrant agrees to be bound by the rules and by any other requirements set out in the promotional material accompanying the promotion.

By entering the promotion, the entrant agrees to the terms of the privacy policy. In addition we may pass your personal information to the promoters and their data processors. However, we always demand that those parties adhere to the same security procedures that we follow ourselves. Entrants will automatically be signed up for our weekly newsletter and can unsubscribe at any time.

Winners will be notified by email soon after the draw. Winners have five (5) business working days to respond in full to the email or another winner will be drawn. By entering the promotion, the winner(s) consent to any publicity generated as a result of the promotion, and use on websites, magazines or mobile services at any time. The Sites’ Editors’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Only one entry per person. Spammers will be disqualified. It is assumed that by entering competitions which, if won, could result in time off work, your employer is in agreement to time off. When dates are specified they cannot be altered.

Prize draws are open to all residents of the UK, except employees of Global Cool, the promoter and their immediate families, the promoters advertising agency and sales promotion consultancy, and anyone else connected with the creation and administration of the promotion.

Global Cool will not accept responsibility for lost through technical fault, incomplete, illegible or other damaged entries. Proof of entry is not automatically proof of receipt. Where Global Cool runs a competition with a promoter such that the promoter is responsible for the selection and/or the provision of prizes then Global Cool shall not be responsible for or have any liability for the provision of such prizes.

These terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.
