4 Conduct of Promotion Which is a Draw
4.1 All valid entries for the promotional draw will be collated and will compete for the prize or prizes. The draw will take place within 7 days after the last date for entering. The winner or winners will be the first valid entry or entries drawn at random on the date the draw is conducted under independent supervision via a computer programme producing a verifiably random result.
4.2 In the event that any winning entry later proves to be invalid or adjudged void then McDonald's may re-award the relevant prize as it sees fit (but shall not be obliged to do so); specifically, the drawing of one or more reserve entries for any draw shall not of itself imply any obligation for McDonald's to award a prize to a reserve entry should a winning entry become invalid or adjudged void.
5 The Prize(s)
5.1 The prize for the Draw comprises 1 x £2,000 Virgin Holidays Gift Card. The Gift Card expires during November 2019.
5.2 Winner shall comply with all other gift card and holiday conditions including the Virgin Gift Card terms and conditions as stated on the website at https://www.thevirgingiftcard.co.uk/terms-and-conditions/). The winner and any companion(s) must comply with all applicable terms and conditions of each of McDonalds and Virgin Holidays which may include (without limit) identifying details such as full name, date of birth, IE residential address suitable for receipt of post and email address. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of the prize.
5.3 Any costs which it may be necessary or desirable for the winner and any companion(s) to incur in connection with a prize (e.g. subsistence, accommodation, transportation) and which costs are not expressly stated as being included within the prize shall be the sole responsibility of the winner and/or any companion(s).
5.4 If McDonald's wishes to increase the prize pool during a promotion it may (but shall not be obliged to) do so. Prize descriptions are illustrative.
5.5 Prizes may not be exchanged, encashed or transferred.

6.2 The winner shall respond to the notice by email within 7 days with the winner's own residential address which is valid for receiving Royal Mail and other deliveries for the receipt of a prize or for any other purpose stated by the McDonald's to which the prize is to be sent together with any other information and/or documents which McDonald's requests.
6.3 Following receipt from each winner of all requested information by no later than 7 days after the date of McDonald's initial notification-email to the winner and in the required manner, McDonald's shall within 7 days send the prize by registered mail to the winner to the address provided. It is the entrant's responsibility to enable timely delivery or make timely collection-arrangements from the postal or courier service.
6.4 Each prize is awarded conditionally upon the winner and (if the prize is to be shared by the winner and any companion(s)) each companion accepting the terms and conditions of the prize provider or, in the case of more than one contractor being involved in the provision of a prize, the providers. Details of such terms and conditions of the providers for a particular promotion may be obtained within 30 days of the closing date for entries of the relevant promotion, by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to McDonald's at the address below marking the envelope with the name of the promotion.
6.5 Failure of a winner to follow the deadlines and other instructions of McDonald's at any stage of the Draw and prize fulfilment process (whether or not communicated via an agent) may result (in McDonald's sole discretion) in the prize being withheld and the winner's claim being judged void for all purposes.
6.6 All unawarded or unclaimed prizes will lapse if not awarded or if awarded but not collected or retained (whether due to failure to sign for delivery or otherwise) within two months of the Draw or one month from the end of any scheduled delivery date (whichever is later).
6.7 Prizes will be awarded for the Draw only on verification by McDonald's that the entrant has complied with the Terms. McDonald's (and any prize supplier) may carry out such background checks and require such information as it considers necessary or desirable for the purposes of verifying eligibility or the validity of any entry and any prize may be withheld unless and until McDonald's is satisfied with the verification.
6.8 Reference in the Terms or any promotional advertising, material or communication to any person as a "winner" or which otherwise expresses or might imply that a prize has been won, shall not thereby imply a waiver of any prize-claim/verification processes relating to the award of that prize or of McDonald's rights under the Terms to withhold the prize, require its return or cancellation (if already awarded), to adjudge the prize-claim as void for any or all purposes and/or to rule the entrant as ineligible for this and/or other promotions.
7.1 To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law (but not otherwise) McDonald's and its agents assume no responsibility and are not liable for (i) the accuracy or otherwise of the prize description or illustration, (ii) any representation, warranty, condition or guarantee in respect of a prize (other than those warranties or conditions implied by statute and which cannot be excluded), (iii) the non-availability, loss, late or non- receipt, damage, illegibility or non-readability of a prize notification or other communication sent in connection with this promotion (iv) verifying whether the person awarded a prize is the person entitled to claim that prize (v) any taxes, fees, charges or other costs which winners may be required to pay any time in connection with a prize, (save to the extent that McDonald's has expressly and specifically accepted responsibility on the Site). Nothing in these terms and conditions will limit the McDonald's' liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for fraud.
7.2 Please note that no association is to be implied by this Draw, the prize-pool or any arrangements in relation to prize-fulfilment (including, if appropriate, any ticket provider, event authority or venue authority) between McDonalds and Virgin Holidays and Virgin Holidays is not a sponsor of this promotion.
8.2 Enquiries about personal information held by McDonald's, including any request for deletion of personal data, may be made by contacting the Customer Services number notified on the Contact Us section of www.mcdonalds.co.uk and obtaining the contact name and address to which to send an envelope marked "Data Protection Request".
8.3 Selected partners of the Promoter and/or third parties (depending upon the nature of the prize and whether in addition to or in place of an entrant providing personal data to the Promoter) may require entrants to provide to any such partner or third party personal-data in connection with claiming/redeeming prizes and (for prizes which are vouchers) any products or services of partners or third parties which are to be redeemed using prize-vouchers, so entrants should satisfy themselves with the privacy policies of such partners and third parties, as the Promoter cannot accept any responsibility for them.
