Terms and conditions

  1. I certify that I am 18 years of age or older, or will be at the time of participating in Macmillan Game Heros (the ‘Event).
  2. I understand that Macmillan Cancer Support recommends that I consult a doctor before participating in the Event. Regardless of whether I have consulted a doctor, I agree that by participating in the Event, I do so entirely at my own risk. I verify that I am in proper physical and mental condition to participate and acknowledge that I am aware of the risks involved and voluntarily agree to assume those risks.
  3. I am aware that, while Macmillan Cancer Support is delighted that I am raising funds for its important work, it is not responsible for or involved in organising my Event activity.
  4. Save where it has been negligent, Macmillan will not be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from: my participation in this Event; the Event being cancelled; my acceptance or use of any prize; any technical, hardware or software failures; lost, faulty or unavailable network connections; or difficulties of any kind that may limit or prohibit my ability to participate in the Event.
  5. By participating in the Event, I agree to release and hold Macmillan, its subsidiary and affiliated companies, together with their respective employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives, harmless from any and all losses, damages, rights, claims and actions of any kind in connection with participating in the Event or resulting from my acceptance or use of any prize, provided that nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall in any way limit Macmillan's liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence or for any other matter where liability may not as a matter of law be limited.
  6. I confirm to Macmillan that my actions will not be, nor reasonably considered to be, illegal, misleading, libellous, dangerous or likely to cause distress or harm to me or others or to cause damage to Macmillan’s reputation. All funds raised in the Macmillan Game Heroes campaign are for the benefit of Macmillan and I will let donors know that their donations will benefit Macmillan and that any donations paid in advance will be held on trust by me for Macmillan and will not be refundable should I fail to complete the challenge or fail to hit my fundraising target or for any other reason, except in Macmillan’s absolute discretion.
  7. If I am broadcasting my Event activity via a streaming service, such as Twitch, I shall not upload, post, e-mail or otherwise transmit any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libellous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.
  8. I acknowledge that I have read these terms and conditions, and fully understand them and I have agreed to them freely and voluntarily without any inducement, assurance, guarantee, or oral representation being made.
  9. Macmillan reserves the right to modify, cancel, terminate or suspend the Event in whole or in part, at its sole discretion, if it believes the Event is not capable of being conducted as specified within these Terms and Conditions or in the event of a virus, a computer bug or unauthorized human intervention or any other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of Macmillan that could corrupt or affect the administration, security, impartiality or normal course of the Event. Neither Macmillan nor any of its subsidiary or affiliated companies are responsible for any condition, circumstances, losses, failures or delays caused by events beyond its or their control such as (but not limited to) the acts or defaults of the suppliers of any prizes or otherwise that may cause the Event to be disrupted or corrupted, or that may lead to loss or damage of prizes in transit.
  10. These Terms and Conditions are governed by English law. The courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to hear any dispute or claim arising in association with the Event or these Terms and Conditions.
