The start date will be 3rd March 2018 at 10am and will close at 6pm on 4th March 2018. Prizes will be awarded every hour, with the list of entrants drawn from all check ins made to the Remus Uomo Victoria Square Facebook Location in the previous hour.

Douglas and Grahame, parent company of Italian Apparel, the operators of Remus Uomo, Victoria Square is organising a CONTEST called “Victoria Square 10th Anniversary Competition”, via data collected when users "check in" to the Remus Uomo Victoria Square Facebook Location or which is given to them in store when a public check in is not possible. This competition is valid only in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The winners will be privately notified but an anonymised version of this information can be shared on request.
The mere fact of participation implies knowledge and acceptance, with no reserves or conditions, of the present rules. The participant should read and accept these rules before participating in this contest.
The contest is open to the United Kingdom and Ireland only and the participation is free of charge to all the participants (no purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win). In case of mistake or conflict, any decision taken by Douglas & Gahame will be unappeallable.
To be eligible to participate in the contest, competitors must:
- Be an individual at least 16 years of age
- Have a functioning Facebook account
- Visit Remus Uomo Victoria Square, Belfast
- Have an active mobile phone
- Open Facebook on their mobile device and check in to the store location on Facebook
To enter through Facebook the privacy setting on your check in post must be set to "public." If you do not wish to post publicly you can check in, show your check in post on your device to our staff in store who will record your name and mobile telephone number and the time you entered. This information will be securely destroyed at the end of the promotion and no record of entrants other than the winner will be kept.
Each person can participate as many times as they like over the course of the weekend but can only win a prize once during the course of the promotion. To enter more than once without a publically viewable check in on Facebook, you must be present in store and give your contact details to a member of staff.
Employees of the organizing company are excluded from this contest and thus cannot participate in it.
Douglas & Grahame Ltd or its subsidiary companies won’t accept comments or messages which are against the law, racist, religious, political, with pornographic content or advocating terrorism.
Facebook usernames of each entrant will be recorded after each hourly deadline on an Excel spreadsheet that will automatically number all participants, alongside the names and contact telephone numbers of any in store entrants who cannot publicly post their check in.
Via a random number generator, a winning number and two runners-up will be generated.
Then the profile of 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.
If the winner’s privacy setting thus permits, he or she will receive notification of winning the prize and the instructions for receiving it, via a private message or comment on their check in. Or if an in store entry was received, a call direct to their mobile from a member of the store team. A response is required within 7 days of notification.
If the winner cannot be contacted within the 7 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 Douglas & Grahame Ltd 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 Douglas & Grahame Ltd although the participant shall not be able to claim for any right, compensation or indemnity of any type from Douglas & Grahame Ltd.
The prize will consist of a £50 voucher to spend in store at Remus Uomo Victoria Square. One prize will be awarded per winner. The prize will not be broken down. 13 prizes will be given over the course of the weekend. The first prize on Saturday will be allocated at 11am, with the last prize being allocated at 6pm on Saturday. The first prize on Sunday will be awarded at 2pm and the last prize awarded at 6pm. Winners can call in store immediately if the store is open or at anytime in the coming month to pick up their prize.
After a full calendar month has passed and the voucher remains unclaimed this will entail renouncing the prize, while all the transferable rights inherent to holding the winning title will be expressly assigned perpetually to Douglas & Grahame Ltd although the participant shall not be able to claim for any right, compensation or indemnity of any type from Douglas & Grahame Ltd.
