Where a signed-for delivery is made to the Participant but delivery is not possible for whatever reason, the Administrator will use reasonable endeavours to arrange for re-delivery at the earliest possible opportunity but there may be charges incurred by the Participant from the courier or similar service provider for re-attempting delivery for which the Participant shall be liable.

Returns
Returns of Rewards will be arranged for the Participant if there is a fault with the Reward or it is damaged provided the issue is reported to the Administrator within 24 hours of receipt. Couriers will not generally accept liability for damages or lost items beyond this time frame.

If the Participant wishes to discuss or organise a return, exchange or refund of any item, please contact the Administrator within 24 hours of receipt.

The Participant acknowledges that some Rewards are not returnable and non-refundable (i.e. items with a customised aspect or which are made to order, perishable goods such as flowers/food or personal items such as jewellery or cosmetics).
