Winner Selection Procedure
All received entries will have their data processed into a spreadsheet that will automatically number all participants.
Via a random number generator, a winning number and two runners-up will be generated.
The winner number will be manually checked to ensure that it meets the participation requirements set out in these rules. If not, runners-up 1 and 2 will then be checked successively. If none of them comply with the requirements, another three random numbers will be generated, so that the prize does not end up being declared void.
Remus Uomo will directly contact the chosen winner by telephone. Two attempts will be made to contact the winner by telephone on successive days. On the second day an email will also be sent to the email address provided. On the third day a third and final attempt to reach the winner will be made.
If the winner cannot be contacted within these 3 calendar days from the first contact attempt, or waives the prize, the winner will lose his or her right to claim the prize. The fact that the winner does not contact Remus Uomo within this period will entail renouncing the prize, while all the transferable rights inherent to holding the winning title will be expressly assigned perpetually to Remus Uomo although the participant shall not be able to claim for any right, compensation or indemnity of any type from Remus Uomo.
The prize will consist of:
- Return flights for two people to New York City (JFK or Newark Airports) from Dublin or London Airports.
- Three nights’ accommodation in Manhattan in a minimum 4 star hotel.
- Transfers to and from the airport to your hotel.
Direct flights from other UK airports are possible, but the cost must not exceed the cost of flights from Dublin or London (whichever is lower).
The date of the winner’s trip must be confirmed to Remus Uomo within 60 days of acceptance of the prize.
The earliest the winner can take the trip will be 8 weeks from the date they notify Remus Uomo of their desired date of travel. The trip must be taken within one calendar year of the prize being awarded.
Blackout dates apply. These include 11th – 23rd March and all of July, August and December. Some public holidays in the UK, Ireland or the US will also be excluded due to the significant increases in flight costs and reduced availability of accommodation. However, all efforts will be made to accommodate the winners’ requests.
Transport to and from the UK or Irish airports is not included, therefore any connecting flights, car or public transport the winner must take to reach these airports or to return to their home address after their trip will be at the winner’s own expense.
The prize does not include travel insurance and the winner is strongly advised to purchase coverage for this trip. Remus Uomo bears no liability for the loss of luggage, losses or injury suffered connected to this prize or during the winner’s trip.
One prize will be awarded. The prize will not be broken down. The prize is not transferable. There is no cash alternative.
