I like entering competitions.
I bought some petrol and with the receipt they gave me a 'Fishing Licence' with a number. I went on line and played a silly 'fish catching' game and got 8 chances to win 7,ooo bucks worth of groceries. All good so far. They wanted my phone number and address. Hmmm. Ok, then, Greed got the better of me. Then you have to tick the 'I have read the terms and conditions' box.
All the conditions were the usual - about employees of the company not being eligible etc... until I got down to No. 16. I was so gobsmacked at the implications, I just had to share it with you.
I'll just give you a moment to read it. You may have to click on the image if you are hard of seeing like me...
OK. So. What do you think!?
Have I misread it?
It seems to me that if I enter this competition (not even WIN) I 'Waive all rights' (ALL RIGHTS!?) for '..an unlimited period of time...'!!!
Surely that's not legal?
Additionally, they can 'modify any of these conditions'...' at any time' and not be liable!
Needless to say greed did not drive me to sell my soul to the devil.
