Terms and Conditions
1. The online service – Championship Picks Predictor – is offered and run by Snack Media (‘the Promoter’ and ‘the Company’) whose trading office address is Rosebery House, 70 Rosebery Avenue, London, EC1R 4RR.
5. Playing a Predictor Game through the web sites located at https://championshippicks.uk/ (‘the Game’).
5.1 To enter a predictor profile you must complete the registration process and accept the terms and conditions set out herein. All Game players must be *18 years of age or older. You may be asked at any stage to provide the Company, the Promoter or a third party with a proof of age and/or identity. Failure to provide satisfactory proof of age and/or identity shall disqualify you from participation in the Game and the winning of any prizes.
5.2 All users can play the Game for FREE. You may only register one free profile per entrant. Anybody believed to have entered more than one profile will be disqualified and will not be eligible to win prizes. The Company may use their discretion to identify registrants who have entered more than one profile under different names, email addresses and identities. The Promoters’ decision is final and neither the Company nor the Promoter will enter into any discussion about users that are disqualified.
5.3 The Company reserves the right to refuse to accept any entry which, in their opinion, does not comply with the rules and regulations of the competition or which contravenes the spirit of the Game. The Company has an absolute discretion to disqualify any entry or vary, amend or waive the rules of the competition or terminate the Game at any time and participants agree that no liability shall attach to the Promoter or the Company as a result thereof and that the exercise of such discretion shall not result in any compensation being payable or paid to any participant. It is a condition of entry that all rules are accepted as final and that the competitor agrees to abide by these rules.
5.4 Only the registered user may make changes to his or her tips. Anyone found to be managing a profile that does not belong to them, on behalf of another game player or without their knowledge, will be removed and not eligible to win prizes.
5.5 The Company respects the intellectual property rights of others and asks users of the Sites to do the same. The Sites and all materials, characters, logos or other images, and in particular the rules and point structure incorporated by the Company, on the Sites are protected by copyrights or other intellectual property rights. No information may be reproduced in any format without prior written consent from the Company.
5.6 For the purposes of the Game and your use of the Sites our computer record of your entry will be considered to be your entry. We have the right to reject what, in our sole discretion, we consider to be incomplete, inaccurate or corrupted entries. The decision of the Company as to whether an entry is incomplete, inaccurate or corrupted is final.
5.7 The Company is committed to ensuring, as far as reasonably practicable to do so, that its Sites and the Game do not cause offence to anyone using the same. We therefore request that you do not enter a name for your profile that may be considered by others to be inappropriate or offensive. A non-exhaustive list of names that may be considered to be inappropriate or offensive are names that are obscene, pornographic, racist, abusive or harassing. We reserve the right to refuse to accept, and may change any profile names which we feel, in our sole discretion, are inappropriate or offensive.
5.8 The fixtures listed on the rounds list have been determined by the Company. The Promoter or Company will not enter into any correspondence relating to details of the fixtures. The fixture list will be reviewed periodically. If the time/date of a fixture is changed we will move it to the new fixture date. If any of the fixtures are rescheduled to run outside of the original Championship Season 2020-21 (11th September 2020 – 9th May 2021) they will not be counted for the purposes of the Game.
5.9 Predictor Profiles will score points as follows:
Correct scoreline – 3 points
Correct outcome – 1 point
Incorrect predictions – 0 points
– Points are based on the full time result inclusive of extra time
– Penalty shootouts (if applicable) will not be considered
5.10 The Company will use the latest scores and results reported by its data provider to use as the basis of the Prediction scoring criteria.
5.11 All users will score points from the matches played after the Predictions are selected and submitted prior to the relevant Prediction deadlines. Time of Predictions submission will be recorded as per the server clock (displayed at the bottom of the screen). Profiles will not score points until their Predictions have been saved.
6. Mini Leagues
6.1 A user may only ‘Chair’ (create) three mini leagues and can join up to ten mini leagues. Therefore, one user can only belong to ten mini leagues. Any attempt to become a part of more than ten mini leagues will result in removal from the game.
6.2 Any users that the company feels are not conducting themselves within the game with ‘Good Sporting Conduct’ will be removed from the game. The Company’s decision is final and the Company will not enter into any discussion about users that are disqualified.
6.3 Duplicate mini leagues entered will be removed without question. Duplicate mini leagues constitute those with the exact same profiles as another mini league.
6.4 Mini Leagues where one user manages all of the profiles in that league will NOT be eligible to win prizes (if applicable) as this is considered unsporting conduct.
6.5 Mini Leagues that we feel are not abiding by the rules of ‘Good Sporting Conduct’ will be removed from the game. This includes the Company’s belief that Predictions are being made in profiles by any one manager. Please note: The Company’s decision is final and the Company will not enter into any discussion about users that are disqualified.
7.2 There will be one winner of the overall competition. The overall winner will be the user whose Predictor profile has accumulated the most points throughout the duration of the competition.
7.3 There are no period competitions that are eligible for prizes. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the competition. The opportunities to win prizes are:
First Prize – £500 Cash Prize
Please note: In the event that two or more predictor profiles in the ‘Overall’ competition have the same points, the predictor profile who has the most correct scoreline will be deemed the winner. In the event that there are two or more predictor profiles with the same number of points and correct correct score lines, the predictor profile that registered first will be deemed the winner.
7.4 Prize winner(s) will be notified by email within 28 days of winning. All prizes are up to the discretion of the Promoter.
7.5 If you are a winner, you will have to respond to the notification and complete and return additional legal documents to us within 28 days of receipt. Non-compliance or notification returned as “undeliverable as addressed” will result in your disqualification as a winner and prizes will not be re-offered or deferred.
7.7 Winners agree that neither the Company nor the Promoters, nor their employees shall have any liability in connection with the acceptance or use of any of the prizes. All prizes are fulfilled by the Promoter and are not the responsibility of the Company. Non-fulfilment of prizes must be taken up with the Promoter, whilst the Company will endeavour to ensure that all prizes are fulfilled within 3 months of the game completion, the Company cannot be held responsible for non-fulfilment of prizes.
7.8 Cash alternatives are not available instead of the specific prizes. Shipping of prizes only applies to residents of the country in which the game is promoted in. Overseas winners are responsible for any excess costs incurred in connection with shipping prizes to them. In the event of the prize not being available, the Company will endeavour to provide a prize of a similar nature or provide a cash alternative at the Company’s sole discretion.
7.9 All winners, by accepting the prize, will agree to taking part in any publicity to do with the winning of the game.
7.10 By registering to play the game, you are accepting to receive email updates.
7.11 The User’s email address that is held by the Company should be kept valid at all times. The Company provides a facility to allow users to update their email address at any time. If you are a winner and your contact details are incorrect, we will allow 28 days for you to correct this before deferring to the next eligible winner.
7.12 By registering to play the game, you are accepting to receive email updates. The Company reserves the right to validate email addresses at any time and the right to remove, or suspend from the Game, any profiles found to have an invalid email address.
