Terms and Conditions for Competitions


Participation in this promotion or contest is deemed acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.

Entrants must send entries as required in the contest announcement in order to be eligible. Entries received after the deadline set forth in the contest announcement are ineligible, null, and void. Tutate is not responsible for entries that are sent but not received by Tutate for any reason.

Tutate reserves the right, at any time, to verify the validity of entries and entrants (including an entrant’s identity, age and place of residence) and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who Tutate has reason to believe has breached any of these Terms and Conditions, tampered with the entry process or engaged in any unlawful or other improper misconduct calculated to jeopardise fair and proper conduct of the promotion. Errors and omissions may be accepted at Tutate’s discretion. Failure by Tutate to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights. Tutate’s legal rights to recover damages or other compensation from such an offender are reserved.

Incomplete or indecipherable entries will be deemed invalid.

Only one entry per person will be considered for contest entry unless the contest announcement specifically says that multiple entries are allowed.

The winner(s) agree(s) to the use of their name, photograph, educational qualifications and history, disclosure of county of residence and any other deemed pertinent information by Tutate and will co-operate with any other reasonable requests by Tutate relating to any post-winning publicity.

All photos, drawings, text, and any other content or information (collectively and severally, “Materials”) submitted by you to Tutate shall become the sole and exclusive property of Tutate, and Tutate shall have no obligation to preserve, return, or otherwise make available to you or others any Materials.

Tutate may use, reproduce, edit, display, transmit, prepare derivative works of, modify, publish, and otherwise make use of Materials in any and all media, whether now known or hereinafter created—throughout the world and for any purpose—without compensation to you of any kind.

By submitting Materials to Tutate, you represent and warrant that the Materials do not infringe any copyright, trademark, property rights, rights of privacy or publicity of any person, or any other right of any third party and that you have the full and unrestricted right to transfer the Materials to Tutate free and clear of any claims or encumbrances.

You acknowledge and agree that Tutate shall have no obligation to post, display, or otherwise make publicly available any Materials submitted by you.

You acknowledge and agree that Materials submitted by you may be made available by Tutate for viewing, rating, reviewing, and commenting by the public. You acknowledge that comments or ratings that you disagree with or are unhappy about may be published or otherwise become associated with Materials that you submit to Tutate. By submitting Materials to Tutate, you waive any privacy expectations that you may have with respect to the Materials.

You agree to hold Tutate and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns harmless from and against—and hereby waive any right to pursue—any claims of any nature arising in connection with Tutate use of the Materials submitted to Tutate and used in any manner in Tutate’s sole and absolute discretion.

Contests involving evaluations of Materials submitted as part of the contest will be judged entirely in the sole and absolute discretion of Tutate. Decisions by Tutate are final.

Winners may not request substitutions of prize winnings. All winners are solely responsible for any and all taxes and/or fees as well as all additional costs that may be incurred.

Neither Tutate nor its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, or assigns shall be liable for any warranty, costs, damage, injury, or any other claims incurred as a result of the usage of a prize by any winner including but in no way limited to each and every aspect of the taking of a trip or tour as part of a contest prize. Tutate is not liable for any loss arising out of or in connection with any contest promoted by Tutate.

If the specified prize becomes unavailable for any reason, Tutate in its sole and absolute discretion may substitute a prize of like or equal value.

A contest is null and void in any jurisdiction where prohibited by law.

Tutate reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to terminate any contest at any time without prior notice.

Tutate reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to alter any contest rules at any time.

By entering a contest, you conclusively are deemed to have agreed to be bound by these contest rules and terms and conditions as well as by any rules specific to such contest. This is an irrevocable condition of entry.

The following criteria apply:

a. In contests in which winners are selected at random, the odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received and cannot be determined in advance.
b. In contests in which winners are selected based upon skill or accomplishments, winners will be chosen by Tutate on the merits of each entry, in Tutate’s sole and absolute discretion.
c. In contests in which winners are selected on the basis of being the nth person to complete a stated action, the winner shall be that person provided that he or she validly completes the action, validity being determined by Tutate, in its sole and absolute discretion.
d. In contests and polls in which Tutate solicits votes by the public to help decide the winner, while the results of such polls may be a considered factor in determining the winner, the winner will ultimately be selected by Tutate in its sole and absolute discretion.

Except in cases as stated otherwise, each contest will state a deadline for entry and the date when the winner(s) will be announced. Winners of contests run in accordance with the above mentioned clauses will be announced the day the action is completed.

Tutate reserves the right to condition the award of prizes upon the execution by the winner(s) of a publicity release. Notwithstanding this reserved right, entry is conclusively deemed to be permission by the entrant to use the entrant’s name (without compensation to the entrant) if the entrant is a winner to publicize the contest and otherwise, as determined by Tutate, unless prohibited by law.

Tutate reserves the right to require the winner to execute an affidavit of eligibility as a sworn document and provide other proof of eligibility as a condition of receipt of the prize or award.

Tutate’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
