Competition Terms and Conditions

Competitions are only open to UK residents who are readers of The Green Parent, The Green Parent Newsletter and/or visitors to The Green Parent Website. On completing and submitting your entry, you will automatically be entered into the competition.  The competition is not open to employees of The Green Parent or participating companies. No cash alternative will be offered. The prize (s) described are available at the date of publication. Events may occur that render the promotion or the awarding of the prize impossible due to reasons beyond the control of The Green Parent or participating companies. In this event The Green Parent or participating companies may at their discretion vary or amend the promotion and the reader agrees that no liability shall be attached to The Green Parent or participating companies as a result thereof. Proof of emailing will not be accepted as proof of delivery and no responsibility can be accepted for entries lost, delayed, mislaid or for any technical failure or for any event which may cause the competition to be disrupted or corrupted. In order to determine an outright winner or winners to a competition, the Editor or participating company reserves the right to request entrants to take part in an eliminating contest (or ‘tie breaker’). Where for any reason there are more winners than prizes on offer, the Editor reserves the right to conduct a simple draw to determine the winner or winners of the prizes. Unless otherwise stated, entry to all competitions is restricted to entrants of 18 years of age or over. Names of winners will be available on receipt of a request enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope to the participating company.  If the winner of a competition is unable to take up a prize for any reason, the participating company reserves the right to award it to an alternative winner, in which case the first winner chosen will not be eligible for any share of the prize whatsoever. The participating company‚Äôs decision is final and it is a condition of entry to any competition that the entrant agrees to be bound by these rules whether they be published or not, and that the decisions of The Green Parent or participating companies on any matter whatsoever arising out of or connected with the competition are final. No purchase of the magazine is necessary and no more than one entry per household. Please indicate on your entry if you do not want to receive information from the participating company or their selected partners.
