The use of any automated entry software or any mechanical, electronic or other means that allows an Entrant to automatically enter repeatedly is prohibited and will render all entries submitted by that Entrant invalid. The Promoter reserves the right to verify the validity of any and all entries and reserves the right to disqualify any Entrant for: (a) tampering with the entry process; (b) for submitting an entry which is not in accordance with these Rules of Entry; or (c) if the Entrant is engaged in any unlawful or other improper conduct calculated to jeopardize the fair and proper conduct of the promotion.

The draws for each promotion will take place at the Zip US office listed in the Promotional Detail within 7 days of the End Date and conducted under independent supervision, or by a computer process that produces verifiably random results. The winner/s of the draw will be notified in writing within three (3) days of the relevant draw. The first eligible entry randomly drawn from all entries received during the Promotional Period will win the prize. Where more than one prize is available, up to the amount of eligible entries (as advertised for a relevant promotion) will be drawn from all entries received in each advertised promotion, and each will win one (1) prize. Prize will be awarded in the name of the winner/s. The Promoter’s decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into on the subject. The winner/s of each draw will have their names and localities published on Zip websites/social media accounts within seven (7) days of the relevant draw and will remain on that website for a minimum of twenty-eight (28) days. Where required by law, prize winners shall also be published in a relevant local newspaper within 7 days of the relevant draw. All reasonable steps to notify winners will be taken by the Promoter.
- The Promoter may draw additional reserve entries in the draw and record them (in order) in case an invalid entry or ineligible Entrant is drawn, the Entrant is ineligible to accept or declines to participate in the prize. Each Entrant whose entry is drawn by the Promoter must confirm their eligibility to be awarded the prize, and their ability to accept and participate in the prize within seven (7) business days of being successfully notified by the Promoter that their entry has been drawn, otherwise their entry will be deemed invalid. A prize will only be awarded following any winner validation, receipt of promotional photography of the winner (if applicable) and verification that the Promoter requires in its sole discretion. If a trip is included as part of a prize, the Prize winner may also be required to provide photography taken during the trip. In the event of an invalid entry, or an ineligible Entrant, or if the Entrant is ineligible to accept or declines to participate in the prize, the prize will be awarded to the first reserve entry drawn. If the prize cannot be awarded to the Entrant drawn, the Promoter will continue this process until the prize is awarded or for three alternative Entrants, depending on the particular prize redemption dates, if any. If after this process the prize has still not been awarded, or if an Entrant drawn cannot be notified, the prize may remain unawarded.
- For Entrants from the USA, Prize winner and the parent/legal guardian (if any) will be confirmed via email and/or phone, and will be required to sign and return, within seven (7) days of notification, an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Waiver, a W-9 Form if required and where allowable, a Publicity Release (collectively, “the Releases“) (except where prohibited). The Releases will require the winner to furnish his/her Social Security Number for the sole purpose of tax reporting, as required by law. Noncompliance will result in disqualification and an alternate winner may be selected. If a winner is otherwise eligible under these Rules of Entry, but is nevertheless deemed a minor in his or her state/province of primary residence, the prize will be awarded in the name of winner’s parent or legal guardian who will be required to execute, sign, and return the Releases on minor’s behalf. The prize package will be awarded within approximately 45 days after the winner is verified.
