DR. MARTENS PRIDE COMPETITION (THE “COMPETITION”)

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

a. NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. By participating in the Competition, you (i) agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, including all eligibility requirements, and (ii) agree to be bound by the decisions of the Promoter and its external decision makers (as defined below), which are final and binding in all matters relating to the Competition.

 

b. PROMOTER: Airwair International Ltd (registered company no. 03009359) whose registered office is at Cobbs Lane, Wollaston, Northamptonshire NN29 7SW (“the Promoter”) is the organiser of the Competition.

 

c. ENTRANCE: Entrants must follow all the online instructions for the Competition to be eligible to enter and win. To be eligible, entrants must fill out the form at https://www.drmartens.com/uk/en_gb/win-your-pride-design for a chance to win the prizes detailed at (f) below (the “Prizes”). This form will require the entrant to submit:

i. A medium-resolution design (a “Design”), which must be provided in .JPEG, .PNG or .PDF format. Entrants may add their Design to a .PDF template made available on the Promoter’s website (see https://www.drmartens.com/uk/en_gb/win-your-pride-design) but this is not a requirement for entry. This template does not reflect how the winning Design will be displayed in the windows of the Dr. Martens stores, and is for guidance only. Entrants must retain a high-definition copy of their Design as this will be requested from the winner once the winner is decided. This Design must be Pride-themed, and, if successful, will be used to promote local Pride celebrations across Europe. It should therefore be designed for this purpose (the “Purpose”);

ii. A brief summary of why the entrant wants to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community; and

iii. The entrant’s email address and first and last names.

It is optional for entrants to tick the box to subscribe to the Dr. Martens newsletter and they may unsubscribe at any time. Opting into our newsletter or other marketing emails (or choosing not to do so) will not affect an entrant’s chance of winning.

i. Generated by a script, macro or use of automated devices; or

ii. Completed by a third party or mass entries; or

p. Behaviour which is intended to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Competition, or which is intended to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, or any failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions, may result in disqualification from the Competition, and the Promoter reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person engaging in such behaviour to the fullest extent permitted by law.
