5. Verification, Selection and Prize Acceptance

(a)  Shortlisting: The Promoter will securely transmit all Nominations received during the Promotion Period to PromoVeritas Ltd., an independent promotional verification service, who will review and create a pool of valid Nominations for the draw and assist Promoter in administering the Promotion, including by communicating with selected and shortlisted Nominators and Nominees. Within 3 working days of the end of the Promotion Period, PromoVeritas will randomly draw 1,000 Nominations for judging and will select 5 shortlisted Nominations for each of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and 45 shortlisted entries for England, based on the following criteria, scoring each one out of 20 points

  • Nominee demonstrates a passion, care and inclusivity for their colleagues.

  • The level of positive impact that the person had on those around them.

  • Symmetry with the Promoter’s brand core values.

(b) Winner Selection: A panel of judges comprised of Promoter’s staff and staff of Four Communications, a marketing agency engaged by the Promoter, will judge the shortlisted Nominations according to the criteria above and select 1 winning Nomination from each of the following regions: Wales, East Midlands, East of England, London, North East & Cumbria, North West, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South East, South West, West Midlands, Yorkshire & the Humber. Up to 12 wining Nominations will be selected.

(c)  Winner Notification: PromoVeritas will contact each winning Nominator via the email address provided on the Nomination within 5 working days of Winner Selection and may also contact shortlisted Nominators. The winning and shortlisted Nominators will be required to ask the winning Nominee to email PromoVeritas at gamahealthcare@promowinners.com to claim their Prize within 14 days of initial contact by PromoVeritas to Nominator (“Initial Contact”).

(d) Lapse and Reallocation: In the event that a winning or shortlisted Nominee or Nominator does not contact PromoVeritas within 14 days of Initial Contact, the Promoter reserves the right to disqualify that winning or shortlisted Nomination. Neither the Nominator nor the Nominee will receive a Prize for a disqualified Nomination. The Promoter reserves the right to reallocate the Prizes to a reserve (i.e. shortlisted) winning Nominee-Nominator pair from that region selected in the same manner. Reserve winners may have less time to respond but will be informed of the time limits on Initial Contact.

(e) Eligibility Verification: Prize award is contingent on verification to Promoter’s satisfaction of the selected or shortlisted Nominator, the Nominee and the Cleaning Hero Story. The Promoter may request or process such information as it considers reasonably necessary for this purpose and may withhold a Prize unless and until the Promoter is satisfied with the verification. If any part of the Nomination cannot be satisfactorily verified, or if a selected or shortlisted Nominator or Nominee’s fraud, dishonesty, breach or non-entitlement under these Terms and Conditions is discovered, the Promoter reserves the right to disqualify the entire Nomination and refuse to award a Prize (or seek recovery of its value if the Prizes have already been awarded). Both the Nominator Prize and Nominee Prize may be reallocated to a reserve winning Nominee-Nominator pair.

6. Prize Delivery and Limitations

(a) Prize Acceptance: Prize Acceptance will occur when verified winning Nominees and Nominators (including those that are shortlisted or reserved) provide the information required for Prize delivery in writing to Promoter as follows:

i. Winning Nominee Prize (£1000): preferred payment method (BACs, PayPal or cheque) and any other information required to process payment. Winning Nominees are responsible for providing correct bank account or other details and the Promoter will not be liable for any Prize payments made into the wrong bank account or delivered to the wrong individual.

ii. Winning Nominator Prize (wipes): up-to-date postal address and any special delivery instructions for delivery. 

(b) Prize Delivery: Winning Nominees and Nominators should expect to receive their Prizes within 28 days of Prize Acceptance (“Delivery Deadline”). In the unlikely event that a Prize fails to arrive by the Delivery Deadline, the winning Nominees and Nominators (as applicable) will have a further 28 days from Delivery Deadline to notify PromoVeritas, failing which the Promoter reserves the right not to reallocate the Prize or to limit its value at its sole discretion. (c) Limitations and Substitutions: The Prizes are not transferable or exchangeable and cannot be redeemed for monetary value or for any other form of compensation. If for any reason any element of a Prize is not available, the Promoter reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to substitute another prize for it, of equal or greater value.
