CARLING ‘Made local Fund’ Application 2019 – FULL TERMS & CONDITIONS

These terms and conditions prevail in the event of any conflict or inconsistency with any other communications, including advertising or promotional materials. Nomination instructions on all marketing materials and websites are deemed to form part of these terms and conditions.

1. The Promoter & Data Controller is: Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Limited, 137 High Street, Burton upon Trent, DE14 1JZ a company registered in England and Wales with company number 26018. Do not send nominations to this address as they will not be accepted.

The nomination period for the Carling Activations opens at 12.00hrs on 1st February 2019 and closes at 23.59hrs on 31st January 2020 (“Carling Nomination Period”). The nomination periods for the Pub Activations open on 13th May 2019 and close at 23.59hrs on 14th July 2019 and then open again on 14th October 2019 and close at 23.59hrs on 8th December 2019 (“Pub Nomination Period”). Only one nomination per person per day permitted. Nominating the same project numerous times will not increase the chances of the nomination being selected.

4. To submit a nomination, during the Carling Nomination Period and Pub Nomination Period, Nominees must visit to submit their nomination. Alternatively, Nominees in outlets owned by JD Wetherspoon, Marston’s Robinson’s and Everard’s, can complete and submit the nomination form available at the participating outlet, detailing the project they would like to nominate and place it into the ballot box provided at the participating outlet. All nominations must follow and comply with the ‘Nomination Guidelines’ below:
i. Keep it about the community. We want to help with problems that need fixing outside of the pub and in the wider community;
ii. The nomination should enable sociability. We want to be as inclusive as possible. Your idea should benefit more than just a few people and benefit as many of the wider community as possible;
iii. Make sure your nomination is a tangible project. We can’t just give a monetary donation to a local cause;
iv. Make sure the audience is right for Carling. We cannot support projects that primarily or solely directly benefit children.

5. During the Carling Nomination Period, the Promoter will provide a total minimum funding contribution of £90,000 towards selected community projects and their fulfilment. During the Pub Nomination Period, the Promoter will provide a total minimum funding contribution of £260,000 towards selected community projects and their fulfilment. The Promoter cannot guarantee the number of projects that can be fulfilled and the proportion of contribution per project.

7. The Promoter cannot guarantee that a Nominee’s project will be selected. Our third-party fulfilment Agency “Semble” and other representatives will choose winning nominations based on the “Nomination Criteria”. The Promoter cannot accept any responsibility for, and reserves the right to refuse, entries which are corrupt, incomplete, indecipherable, are not in accordance with the entry instructions or fail to arrive by the end of the nomination periods. No responsibility will be accepted for any entries that are delayed or that are unable to be sent due to lack of network coverage, delays, postal issues or any other reason beyond the Promoter’s control.

8. During each Carling Voting and Selection Round and the Pub Judging and Selection Round, the voting and selection panel will consist of representatives from the Promoter and “Semble” (the Promoter’s agency supporting with the promotion). The voting panel for the Pub Judging and Selection Round will also consist of pub customer representatives. The judging criteria will include: that the nomination abides by the Nomination Guidelines, is perceived to have a significant local community benefit (in the opinion of the panel), complies with any applicable laws and any other criteria set by the Promoter. The decision on winning projects is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

9. The scope of each project, the funding of each project and execution of each project is at the discretion of the Promoter. ”Semble” will contact the relevant third parties to fulfil each nominated project. “Semble” shall procure each project and sub-contract the works to deliver each project.

10. Successful nominations will be notified via email or telephone provided with the nomination on within thirty (30) days of each Carling Voting and Selection Round and the Pub Judging and Selection Round. Unsuccessful nominations will not be contacted. The Nominee will be subject to a verification process to confirm that they satisfy these terms and conditions. Nominees will not win a prize if their nomination is successful.

11. If the beneficiary of a nomination does not respond to their notification that they have been nominated to benefit from the project, or the scope of the project changes or they do not wish to accept the project, this will result in their nomination being forfeited and an alternative beneficiary will be selected based on a reserve chosen at the time of the original selection and under the same terms and conditions as the original selection. The new beneficiary of a nomination will then be notified.

12. By entering a nomination, all Nominees will be deemed to have accepted and be bound by these Terms and Conditions. All nomination instructions form part of these Terms and Conditions.

17. If the Promoter has grounds to suspect any Nominee or third party of cheating, deception, or fraudulent conduct of any kind the Promoter or the participating outlet reserves the right (in its sole discretion) to disqualify any Nominee or person it reasonably believes to be responsible for, or associated with, such activity. Failure by the Promoter or the participating outlet to enforce any of their rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.

19. The Promoter does not take responsibility for, recommend or guarantee the performance of any contractual or other obligations of third parties associated with the projects and shall not be liable for any fraud committed by any third party.
