4.2. Where the Promotion is a prize draw and/or Chelsea FC Foundation states that the Winner will be decided by a random draw, Chelsea FC Foundation will select the Winner at random. Where the Promotion involves an entry which is required to be judged, eligible entries will be judged by a panel of three judges (one of whom will be independent from Chelsea FC Foundation) based on the criteria described in the competition entry page. The decision of the panel of judges (acting reasonably) will be final.

4.3. Chelsea FC Foundation will send the full names of the judges to anyone who writes within one month after the End Date of the Promotion to request this from the Chelsea FC Foundation Contact.

4.4. The Winner will be contacted by Chelsea FC Foundation within 5 days following the end of the Promotion Period (using the information submitted as part of their entry). The Winner(s) shall have two days to confirm their acceptance of the Prize and the address to which the Prize should be sent (if applicable). In the event that a Winner cannot be contacted within two days of Chelsea FC Foundation's first attempt to contact them, or chooses not to redeem the Prize, a replacement Winner may be selected in accordance with paragraph 4.2. Chelsea FC Foundation shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential Winner for any reason.

4.5. Where the relevant Territory requires it, a potential Winner may be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release to use the Winner's name and/or image, including, but not limited to, for advertising and promotional purposes, without further compensation (collectively, "Prize Claim Documents"). If any potential Winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five days of prize notification (or such shorter time as exigencies may require), the Winner may be disqualified and an alternate Winner may be selected in accordance with paragraph 4.2.

4.6. Chelsea FC Foundation is under an obligation to publish or make available information that indicates that a valid prize award took place. As such, Chelsea FC Foundation will send the surname, county (if applicable) and a copy of their entry (if applicable) of the Winner(s) to anyone who contacts the Chelsea FC Foundation Contact within one month of the closing date of the Promotion requesting details of the Winner(s).

4.7. If any entrant objects to the information described in paragraph 4.6 being made available, they may contact the Chelsea FC Foundation Contact to object. This will not affect the entrant's chances of winning the Prize. In such circumstances, the Promotion must still provide that entrant's information to the Advertising Standards Authority, or other relevant regulatory body on request.

5.1. The Winner(s) will each receive the Prize. If the Prize is to be distributed to the Winner(s), it will be sent out to the address(es) supplied by the Winner(s) within one week of accepting the Prize in accordance with paragraph 4.4.

Any Prize pictured in point-of-sale, online, television and print advertising, promotional packaging, and other Promotion materials are for illustrative purposes only. Where the Prize is subsequently not available for any reason beyond Chelsea FC Foundation's control, Chelsea FC Foundation may replace the Prize with a prize of similar value. If the Prize includes tickets to a match, event, flights and/or accommodation, by entering the Promotion each entrant confirms that they are available and eligible to travel to the United Kingdom (including having a valid passport and visa if applicable), on and around the dates the entrants will be needed for such match, event, flights and/or accommodation.

5.4. The Prize is provided "as is" without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, and Chelsea FC Foundation disclaims all such warranties, including but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and/or non-infringement.

5.5. If a Winner is not available or eligible to travel to the United Kingdom on the dates referred to in paragraph 5.2 for any reason, that Winner will not be eligible for the Prize and no alternative prize will be offered to that Winner. All costs and expenses not included in the Prize are the responsibility of the Winner (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any costs connected with the Winner's eligibility to travel).

5.6. Unless otherwise stated by Chelsea FC Foundation, the Prize will only be awarded to the Winner(s). Under no circumstances may the Prize be sold or transferred, for cash or otherwise (except, for example, in the event that the Prize is two tickets to an event/match, in which case the Winner(s) may transfer one ticket to a guest).
