11. Cookies

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device - for example, computer, tablet or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally. These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task.

Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested.

Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

Gallivant may set and access such first-party Cookies on your computer. These Cookies are integral to the services provided by the Web Site to you.

You can choose to enable or disable Cookies in your web browser. By default, your browser will accept Cookies, however this can be altered.

To make it easy for you to use and share our website we embed features from other websites such as Facebook, Twitter and certain other relevant sites. Browsing the Gallivant website may place cookies from these third party websites on your computer. Gallivant has no control over these cookies so it is not always possible to list them, and they are liable to change without notifying us.

We may refer to companies, organisations and public bodies and enable access to their websites directly from our website. Each company, organisation or public body operates its own policy regarding the sale of personal data and the use of cookies. If you have a particular interest in, or concern regarding the way your data will be used then you are advised to read the Privacy Statement on the relevant website.

In addition to these policies your personal data is protected in the UK by the Data Protection Act 1998 and GDPR. We will only process any data we hold about you in a lawful and fair manner.

Your personal data may have to be disclosed if we are required to disclose it by law, or as a result of a lawful request by a governmental or law enforcement authority.

To be totally clear, some cookies are likely to be involved in the use of almost every website. The primary ones that we use relate specifically to Google Analytics, which is an analytical tool that allows us to run our business more efficiently. Please contact us direct if you wish to discuss any aspect of this.

12. Changes to this Policy

General Competition Terms and Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions apply to all competitions featured in any publications and online services that are organised by Gallivant Ltd.
  2. By entering a competition entrants accept these terms and conditions together with any specific instructions and terms for such competition which may be mentioned in any electronic messages, or on the website, or communicated to entrants in any other way (“competition information”). Such competition information shall prevail in the event of there being any inconsistency between these competition terms and conditions and any competition information.
  3. Gallivant Ltd may cancel or amend any competition, competition information, or these terms and conditions without prior notice. Any changes will be posted either within the competition information or these terms and conditions.

Competition Entry

  1. The competition is open to all residents of the United Kingdom, i.e. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. For the avoidance of doubt, Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man are not part of the United Kingdom for these purposes. Gallivant Ltd may ask competition winners for proof of UK residency and if a competition winner is unable to prove their residency to Gallivant Ltd’s satisfaction (i.e. prove that they are physically present in the UK for 183 days or more in the previous or current UK tax year), Gallivant Ltd reserves the right to select an alternative winner. There is no minimum age limit unless specified otherwise in the competition information. However, entrants under the age of 18 must insert contact details of a parent or guardian when entering. Employees or board members of Gallivant Ltd and members of their immediate families (including any live-in partner or household member) may not enter. The same goes for any company involved in the organisation, management, promotion, or administration of the competition or its entry routes or donation of prizes or their agents or subsidiaries;
  2. Where an entrant requires the details of his/her parent/guardian to be entered onto the entry forms, Gallivant Ltd may ask for proof of age and in all competitions evidence to verify the identity of that entrant at any time, and may use any channels and methods available to carry out checks of any details provided. Entrants may only enter the competition in their own name.
  3. The opening and closing dates and times for entries are as indicated in the competition information. Any entries received before the opening and after the closing of the competition will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition.
  4. By entering the competition entrants warrant that all information submitted by them is true, current, and complete. Entrants also warrant that they are the copyright owners of any copyright works submitted, e.g. photographs and drawings, and Gallivant’s use of such works (which you will permit) will not infringe the rights of any third party.
  5. Any limit on the number of entries a person or household may make will be clearly stated in the competition information. Entries received that exceed this limit will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition.
  6. Entry to the competition may only be made through the applicable method(s) indicated in the competition information. Not all of the following methods of entry may be available for entry to each competition. The following terms and conditions will apply where the method is indicated as being available in the competition information. Where entrants pay an entry fee, they must have the permission of the bill payer before entering; otherwise the entry will be invalid.

(a) Text (“SMS”) entry

Where specified in the competition information as an available method of entry to the competition, SMS entrants are required to send a text to the shortcode or number as indicated in the competition information. Texts received by Gallivant Ltd will be charged at the standard operator rate, which will vary depending on the entrant’s mobile network provider. When a text message is received from Gallivant Ltd, sent to the same mobile phone from which the answer was sent, acknowledging receipt of the entry (a “Text Acknowledgement”), this will result in the entrant being charged the charge stated in the competition information. Please check with the relevant mobile network provider what standard network charge will apply. In the event that the entrant has insufficient funds, credits or capacity on their handset (as applicable) for the Text Acknowledgement to be successfully sent by Gallivant Ltd and received by the entrant within 72 hours of the original entry being received by Gallivant Ltd, the relevant entry will be deemed ineligible and will not be accepted.

Entries sent by text message which are received after the stated competition closing time will be invalid and will not be entered into the competition. If a text message entry is received by Gallivant Ltd after the stated competition closing time, the entrant will receive a free text message from Gallivant Ltd informing them that their entry was received late and was not therefore entered into the competition; however, the entrant will not be entitled to a refund of the standard network charge imposed by the entrant’s mobile network when they entered the competition by text message.

SMS entries received after the notified competition closing time will not be valid. Gallivant Ltd accepts no liability for any SMS entry charges incurred regardless of whether the entry is received before the competition closing time. SMS entrants may opt out of receiving any marketing messages in the confirmation message (please see rule 29 of these terms and conditions).

(b) Web entry

Where specified in the competition information as an available method of entry to the competition, web entrants are required to follow the instructions on the website as indicated in the competition information. Entrants will receive a message confirming entry to the competition. Web entrants may be required to supply their name, and/or email address and/or a contact telephone number and/or any other details. In the event that entrants are required to pay to enter online, entrants will need to use the relevant payment service indicated in the competition information, and may need to open an account and register to pay for online entry to the competition. Online entry costs will be as indicated in the competition information. Entrants must read and accept the terms and conditions relating to the online entry pay service before proceeding with such a web entry.

(c) Email entry

Where specified as an available method of entry to the competition, e-mail entrants may enter the competition by sending an e-mail with the information indicated in the competition information and at the email address indicated. There is no charge for email entries. Entrants may receive a message confirming their entry to the competition.

(d) Mobile Internet entry

Where available, entrants may enter the competition by Mobile Internet. Eligible entrants are required to click on the link to the competition on the relevant Mobile Internet webpage and follow instructions to provide the required information to enter the competition. Entries without all the required information will be invalid. Entrants will be charged £ [amount specified in competition details] for entering a competition via Mobile Internet together with any applicable network charges. Some mobile network operators will include the £ [amount specified in competition details] charge on the entrant’s telephone bill; others will send a Text Acknowledgement which will result in the entrant being charged £ [amount specified in competition details] . Mobile network operators may also charge their customers for using the Mobile Internet/browsing tools. Entrants should contact their network operator for more details as these charges may vary depending on the entrant’s mobile network operator and tariff.

(e) Entry via Social Network Sites

Where specified as an available method of entry to the competition, Social Network Site entrants may enter the competition by responding with the information indicated in the competition details by posting their answer within their comment. There is no charge for such entries.

  1. Neither Gallivant Ltd nor its servants, agents, nor any other party or organisation involved in the management, promotion, or administration of the competition or its entry routes or donation of prizes or their agents or subsidiaries involved in the competition will accept responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft, destruction, alteration of, or unauthorised access to entries, or entries lost or delayed whether or not arising during operation or transmission as a result of server functions (including but not limited to security functions by software used by Gallivant Ltd or any third party), virus, bugs, or other causes outside its control.
  2. Entries submitted through agents or third parties or in bulk (i.e. more entries than a human being could submit in the time available without the use of software or other devices designed to make automated entries or, in the case of postal entries, more than one entry submitted under the same postage stamp) will not be accepted. Entrants may enter as many times as they like unless otherwise indicated in the competition information but no more than one prize per person per competition will be awarded.
  3. Any entries which are incomplete, incorrect, inaudible, incomprehensible, or not received by Gallivant Ltd will be void.
  4. In the event of any fault, mistake, misunderstanding or dispute concerning the correctness or acceptability of the entry or any answers given by entrants (if applicable), or the operation of any part of the competition (in the case of postal entries, a postal strike for example), network or phone system, the decision of Gallivant Ltd shall be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  5. Gallivant Ltd will not be liable to reimburse expenses incurred in making an entry in any competition. Where Gallivant Ltd decides in its sole discretion that an entrant is eligible for a refund, eligibility for refunds will be notified to relevant entrants.

Prizes

  5. Should more prizes be claimed than are available for any reason, a simple prize draw will take place for the available prize(s).
  6. Gallivant Ltd will attempt to notify the winner within 21 days after the closing date, or as otherwise indicated in the competition information, and where time is of the essence for such a period as Gallivant Ltd shall in its absolute discretion deem reasonable. He/she will be contacted on the phone number, by SMS text, or email address provided when entering the competition. The winner will have a specified fixed time period in which to claim his or her prize of 2 weeks. If Gallivant Ltd is unable to notify the winner, or if the winner fails to respond within the fixed time period as specified and/or provide an address for delivery of the prize, this may result in forfeiture of the prize and Gallivant Ltd reserves the right to select an alternative winner in accordance with these terms and conditions and the competition information.
  7. Gallivant Ltd may in its sole discretion refuse to provide a prize, or seek its recovery, in the event of non-entitlement under these terms or an entrant’s breach of these terms, Gallivant Ltd’s website terms of use, fraud, dishonesty, or other inappropriate or improper conduct including but not limited to the use of technology which enables an entrant to evade charges or entry requirements.
  8. Any entrant who enters or attempts to enter the Competition in a manner, which in Gallivant Ltd’s determination is contrary to these terms and conditions or by its nature is unfair to other entrants may be removed from the Competition at Gallivant Ltd’s sole discretion.
  9. Gallivant Ltd reserves the right to modify, cancel, terminate or suspend the Competition in whole or in part, at its sole discretion, if it believes the Competition is not capable of being conducted as specified in these terms and conditions or in the event of a virus, computer bug or unauthorised human intervention or any other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of Gallivant Ltd that could corrupt or affect the administration, security, impartiality, or normal course of the Competition.
  10. Gallivant Ltd reserves the right in its sole discretion to withhold delivery of the prize until such proof of eligibility and identity has been confirmed or if such proof is not produced on request or to disqualify the entrant from the competition.
  11. Gallivant Ltd shall try to deliver the prize to the winner within 28 days from the date of the draw, unless otherwise specified to the winner. Delivery restrictions may apply. No cash equivalent (where applicable) or alternative prize will be given and the prize is non-transferable and non-exchangeable. However, Gallivant Ltd reserves the right to change the prize due to circumstances beyond its control or to offer an alternative of similar value.
  12. In relation to all competitions, the first name and surname of the winner may be published by Gallivant Ltd and entrants grant to Gallivant Ltd a non-exclusive licence to use and publish their entry in any media for the purpose of announcing the winner.

Data Protection and Publicity

Gallivant Ltd (or any third party nominated by Gallivant Ltd) may exercise its sole discretion to use the winner’s (and (if applicable) their companion’s) name, address, and image and their comments relating to the prize and competition experience for future promotional, marketing and publicity purposes in any media worldwide without notice or without any fee being paid.
  2. Information, data and the caller line identity (“personal data”) which is provided by entrants when they enter will be held and used by Gallivant Ltd and their suppliers and contractors in order to administer the competition.
