Shop & Review Competition | Terms & Conditions
Every month we’ll be rewarding one lucky shopper with a R1000 Takealot Gift Voucher simply for reviewing one of their purchased products in accordance with the Ts & Cs below.
1. Promoter: This competition is promoted by Takealot Online (RF) (Pty) Ltd (reg. no. 2010/020248/07) (“Takealot.com”, “Takealot” “us”, “we” or “our”).
2. Competition Period: The competition will start on 2 September 2019 and will run indefinitely or until such time as we, acting it our sole discretion, decide to terminate it (the “Competition Period”).
3. Who can enter: You are entitled to participate in this competition if (i) you are a natural person who is at least 18 years old and who resides in South Africa; (ii) it is lawful for you to be awarded the prize. You may NOT participate if you are a supplier of goods or services in connection with this competition, or if you are a director, member, partner, employee, agent of, or consultant to Takealot.com or any other entity which directly or indirectly controls or is controlled by Takealot.com, or if you are any of the aforementioned persons’ spouse, life partner, parent, child, brother, sister or business partner.
4. How to enter: To enter this competition you need to: (i) purchase a product on Takealot.com during the Competition Period, and (ii) review your purchased product on the Takealot.com website in the review section (which can be found near the bottom of each product’s page on the website). Your product review constitutes your entry. Successfully completing and posting the review on the Takealot.com website will automatically enter you into the monthly random prize draw. Note that should you at any stage act in contravention of section 5 below, we, acting in our sole discretion, will remove your review from the Takealot.com website and withdraw your entry from the competition.
5. Content of your entry: To qualify for entry your review must pass Takealot.com’s standard review moderation process which requires that your review not contain any foul language, obscenities, defamation, hate speech or any otherwise inappropriate content, including but not limited to service complaints or general queries not relating to the product’s quality or functionality, competitor comparisons (such as pricing and availability), or links to external sites. Your review must be unique and may not be a duplicate of the same product reviewed by either yourself or any other individual. Your review may not infringe the intellectual property or other rights of Takealot.com, its associated companies or any third party. We reserve the right to remove reviews which we deem to be in contravention of this section 5 and to revise our review moderation process without notice to you.
6. How many times you can enter: You may enter this competition as many times as you wish as long as your review meets the requirements as set out in sections 4 and 5 above. Each unique review received during the calendar month will automatically be entered into that month’s competition draw. Reviews do not roll over into the next month’s draw and therefore you need to place a new order and submit a new review to enter the following month’s draw. All valid entries received as per section 4 above will be pooled together from which the winner will be drawn at random. Please allow at least 48 hours for reviews to be moderated. Due to the technical nature of our business Takealot.com does not guarantee reviews will be published in time for a particular month’s draw.
7. Entry fees: There are no entry fees to participate in the competition, and no additional charges involved in acting as set out in section 4 above.
8. Prize: A R1000 Takealot.com Gift Voucher, rewarded to winners monthly (one winner per month). The gift voucher prize is not transferable and may not be exchanged for cash. Further, we are not responsible for any harm due to the loss, unauthorised use or unauthorised distribution of the prize, after we have delivered it to you (either by way of loading it onto your Takealot.com profile or by email).
9. Winner: The monthly winning review will be drawn at random from all valid entries received online at Takealot.com as per section 4 above. The winner will be contacted via the email address associated with their Takealot.com profile during the first week after the month-end draw, this email may request the winner’s name, surname, ID number and telephone number (“Participant Information”). It is the responsibility of participants to ensure that the email address linked to their Takealot.com profile is correct.
