  1. We’re all very excited about TK Maxx’s Christmas Sock Day on 6th December 2017. To make sure everyone understands how to get involved, here are the terms and conditions (Terms) that apply to anyone that wishes to take part on the big day with our social media charity campaign (Campaign). Please read these Terms carefully - if you do not agree with them, you should not participate.
  2. If you‘d like to have a copy of these terms, you’re welcome to print them or to request a copy by post, by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to the address at the end of these Terms.
  1. HOW TO GET INVOLVED
  1. We’re inviting everyone to post a photo between 12.01am on 14th November and 11.59pm on 6th December 2017 of their feet wearing their favourite festive socks on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (Our Social Pages). On Facebook you will need to post your photo in the comments box under one of our Campaign promotional posts, or as a public visitor post to our Timeline.
  1. We’re hoping you can help us raise €15,000 for Enable Ireland. For each participant from Ireland that posts a photo of their feet wearing their favourite festive socks between 12.01am on 14th November 2016 and 11.59pm on 6th December 2017, we’ll make sure €1 is donated to Enable Ireland, up to a maximum of €15,000. If we reach €15,000 before 11.59pm on 6th December 2017 you can still post your photos to support the Campaign but we will no longer be donating €1 for each post to Enable Ireland. Donations will only be made in relation to posts originating from Ireland. Please visit www.enableireland.ie to find out more about the great work Enable Ireland are doing.

  1. Your posts should not include:
  1. anything unlawful, obscene, defamatory, abusive, invasive of someone’s privacy or any nudity or swearing - in short, be nice!
  2. material that infringes another person’s intellectual property or other rights or that includes adverts, photos of celebrities or another company’s trade marks or logos – if in doubt, please don’t post it.
  3. photos of anyone other than you unless you’ve obtained their permission before posting (or the permission of their parent if they are under the age of 16).
  1. You’re welcome to post different photos but donations will only be made for your first photo (up to the maximum) posted. Also, please don’t spam our social pages by posting photos more than once, from different accounts or use macros or other automated means.
  1. You’ll need to make sure you comply with the terms of the relevant social media site that you’re posting on and if you did not take the photo yourself, please check with the person that did to make sure they’re fine with you posting it online and using them in the ways described below in paragraph 5.
  1. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
  1. As a result of your participation in our Campaign, we will collect certain personal information relating to you. Please see our Privacy Policy for information regarding the personal information we collect online and the purposes for which we use that information.

  1. By participating in our Campaign, you also consent to the terms of the privacy policy of the social media sites on which you have posted your photo on. Please refer to the applicable website/app of the social media site for a copy of the policy.
  1. You have a right to access your personal information held by us or to request that we cease to use such information. Any request for this should be made in writing using the contact details at the end of these Terms and we may charge a small fee for providing the requested information.
  1. All personal and other information relating to participants will be retained by us for a reasonable period after the Campaign ends for auditing and legal reasons and to deal with any queries relating to the Campaign.

  2. Lucky persons availing themselves of the Snow Experience must have a Suitable Property (“Suitable Property”) in order to benefit from the Snow Experience. A Suitable Property is one which the lucky person is permitted to use and which is in a suitable condition for the Snow Experience to be undertaken without risking damage to the property.

  4. To Enter: There are two ways to enter this Activity:
    1. Visit any TK Maxx store in the ROI during the Activity Period (but within store opening and closing hours) and look for a special snow globe hidden in store. If you find it, locate a TK Maxx Brand Ambassador in store and hand it in to claim your Snow Experience, subject to eligibility;

OR

  1. Visit https://www.tkmaxx.ie/white-christmas, enter your email address and read and accept the summary terms and conditions. Then virtually shake the snow globe, either by shaking your mobile phone or tablet (or with your mouse if using a mouse compatible device) to immediately find out if you have bagged a Snow Experience or Gift Card. If you have bagged a Snow Experience you will be asked to enter further details to claim your Snow Experience.

 

  1. No purchase necessary. Internet access is required to enter online.
  2. If you find a snow globe in store, a TK Maxx Brand Ambassador will talk you through the eligibility criteria. If the Brand Ambassador confirms you are eligible for the Snow Experience, you will be deemed the lucky person and taken through the next steps to claim your Snow Experience.

If the Snow Experience is claimed online then your acceptance of the summary terms and conditions by ticking the confirmation box will be considered as your acceptance of being eligible for the Snow Experience.

Through either entry, TJX Ireland may withdraw the Snow Experience at any time if it considers you are not eligible.

  1. If TJX Ireland considers that the property is not a Suitable Property for the Snow Experience, the Snow Experience will be forfeited and an alternative will be offered. TJX Ireland’s decision is final.

In the eventuality that two or more people find a special TK Maxx snow globe at the same time and both are eligible, the lucky person will be determined by the Brand Ambassador who will ask a random question and the person who answers correctly or has the closest answer will be the lucky person, subject to clause 6. If the question does not settle who the lucky person is, then the TK Maxx Brand Ambassador will toss a coin to determine the lucky person. The Brand Ambassador’s decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
    2. Online only: The Snow Experiences and Gift Cards have each been assigned to a random day and time slot during the Activity Period – the first person to shake the globe on or after each time slot will win a Snow Experience or Gift Card according to the timing and pre-assignment. These winning moments, totalling 202, have been securely, randomly and independently selected by PromoVeritas, the independent promotional verification service.
  6. Claiming the Snow Experiences and Gift Cards:
    1. In-store only: As per clause 6, the lucky persons will need to pass the eligibility criteria and if successful, will be given a copy of these terms and conditions.

    3. The Lucky person must take into account any accessibility needs due to the fulfillment of the Snow Experience.
    4. The Snow Experience must be taken in November or December 2017. TJX Ireland will propose a date which will include installation, live day and clean up, taking into consideration external factors such as weather. If the lucky person cannot agree a date with TJX Ireland, TJX Ireland reserves the right to offer an alternative gift.
    5. The Snow Experience is expected to last around 24 hours but various external factors including weather implications may mean that the timing differs.
    6. If a lucky person wishes to cancel the Snow Experience, the Snow Experience will be forfeited and will not be arranged for another date nor reallocated to another person.

Where real snow is used, it will only be cleared if specifically requested by the lucky person subject to Promoter discretion.
    12. Lucky persons are advised to inform their neighbours and anyone in the immediate vicinity of the address that the Snow Experience will be delivered to. Although the Snow Experience will not be placed on another property, machinery and vehicles may cause inconvenience to neighbours.
