Promotion Terms and Conditions

Michael Hill Bourke St Store Opening
Win a Diamond Pendant Promotion Terms and Conditions

1. Information on how to enter forms part of the terms of entry. Entry into the Promotion is deemed acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions or Michael Hill’s Privacy Collection Statement, please notify the Promoter so that your entry can be withdrawn.

2. The Promoter is Michael Hill Jeweller (Australia) Pty Ltd ACN 003 181 333 of 7 Smallwood Place, Murarrie Queensland 4172.

3. Entry is open to entrants aged 18 years or over. However, employees and their immediate families of the Promoter or of any of the Michael Hill group of companies are not eligible to enter.

4. The promotion commences on Friday 12th August 2016 at 00:01 (AEST) and concludes on Sunday 14th August 2016 at 18:59 (AEST) (Promotion Period). Late entries will not be accepted.

5. The promotion will be advertised in store and online.

6. Michael Hill will run the Competition at the Michael Hill store at the corner of Bourke and Swanston Street (the ‘Bourke St Store’). The Competition will involve the distribution by Michael Hill of approximately 1,000 replica diamonds (‘Replicas’) to individuals who are nearby to Bourke St Mall in the Melbourne CBD. Three (3) of the Replicas will be coded with the words ‘WINNER’, visible only with a jeweller’s loupe. Receipt of one of those 3 Replicas may entitle the recipient to win a Prize, subject to the conditions set out below.

7. To enter the competition and create an “eligible entry”, you must, before the Closing Date:

  • a) take a Replica received from a Michael Hill representative during the Competition Period to the Bourke St Store; and
  • b) ask a sales assistant at the Bourke St Store (“the Promoter’s representative”) to inspect the Replica with a jeweller’s loupe to see whether it is coded with the word ‘WINNER’.
  • c) Provide the Promoter’s representative with the Mandatory Information. This information will be used to identify the prize winners, as an entry into the second chance draw set out in paragraph 27, and also as further described in these terms and conditions.

After you have entered the Competition you may request a voucher which will entitle you to 10% off your next purchase at the Bourke St Store (a ‘Discount Voucher’). The Discount Voucher will be valid until 31st October 2016. Use of the Discount Voucher is subject to any additional terms and conditions notified on this voucher. Only one voucher will be provided per person.

Michael Hill is not responsible if an individual receives a Replica, but fails to enter the Competition through the process set out in this paragraph 7, nor is Michael Hill responsible for any failure by any Michael Hill representative to reveal a coded Replica. Although Michael Hill representatives will endeavour to ascertain eligibility in line with paragraph 3 at the time they distribute the Replicas, receipt of a Replica does not make an entrant eligible to enter the Competition if that person is not eligible under paragraph 3 above.

8. For an entry to be valid, the entrant must provide the Promoter with the following details, your name, postal address, date of birth, email address, postcode, daytime telephone number and/or mobile number (“Mandatory Information”). If you do not supply all of the Mandatory Information, your entry will be deemed invalid.

9. If the Replica is inspected and is coded with the word “WINNER’, the entrant is entitled to one of the three named prizes in paragraph 16 below.

10. The prizes will be distributed in the order they are listed in paragraph 16 below. The first entrant to provide an eligible entry and a Replica coded “WINNER” will be issued prize a), the second will be issued prize b) and the will be issued third prize c). These prizes will be given to the eligible entrant whilst they are in store on the day they have produced the “WINNER” coded Replica and eligible entry.

11. Entrants in the Promotion may only enter once during the Promotion Period, subject to meeting the Eligibility Criteria, providing the Promoter with the Mandatory Information and complying with these Terms and Conditions. If any single individual comes into possession of more than one Replica, only the first Replica will be considered for an entry into the Competition, and will entitle the entrant an entry into the Second Chance Draw (if that person is eligible to enter the Competition), if it is not found to be coded, and only the first Replica will entitle the entrant to receive a Discount Voucher. If you are not an Initial Winner, you may submit one entry only into the Second Chance Draw. Multiple entries by a single entrant will be deemed void.

12. The Promoter reserves the right, at any time, to request winners to provide proof of identity, proof of residency at the nominated prize delivery address and/or proof of entry validity in order to claim the Prize. Proof of identification, residency and entry considered suitable for verification is at the discretion of the Promoter. In the event that a winner cannot provide suitable proof, the winner will forfeit the prize in whole and no substitute will be offered.

13. The Promoter reserves the right to verify the validity of entries and to disqualify any entry which, in the opinion of Promoter, includes objectionable content, profanity, potentially insulting, inflammatory or defamatory statements, disqualify any entrant who tampers with the entry process, who submits an entry that is not in accordance with these Terms & Conditions of Entry or who has, in the opinion of Promoter, engaged in conduct in entering the promotion which is fraudulent, misleading, deceptive or generally damaging to the goodwill or reputation of the promotion and/or Promoter. The Promoter reserves the right to disqualify a winner if Promoter becomes aware that the winner and/or the winner’s entry is of a type described in this paragraph.
