1. The Australian EOFY webinar competition (Competition) is run on behalf of Xero Australia Pty Limited of Level 3/260 Burwood Road, Hawthorn VIC 3122 Australia (Xero), and is open from 12:00pm AEST 16 May 2022 to 3:00pm AEST 07 July 2022 (the Competition Period). Xero may extend, cancel or amend this Competition and/or review and update these terms and conditions on its website at any time, at its sole discretion. By entering the Competition, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.

2. To be eligible to enter the Competition (Eligible Entrant), entrants must:

2.a Be an Australian resident prior to, and for the duration of the Competition Period;

2.b Be a Xero customer on any Xero subscription plan during the Competition Period and fall into one of the following categories:

2.b.i the Entrant’s Xero subscription is owned by a small or medium-sized business located in Australia prior to and during the Competition Period (SMB); or

2.b.ii the Entrant’s Xero subscription is owned by a Xero accounting or bookkeeping partner which is located in New Zealand prior to and during the Competition Period (Partner); and

2.b.ii.a Have received Xero’s promotional email, pdf or a communication directly from Xero for this Webinar (defined below) and Competition.

3. Xero employees and their immediate family are not eligible to enter the Competition.

4. In order to enter the Competition, an Eligible Entrant must:

4.a Register for at least one (1) of the four webinars hosted by Xero as part of its EOFY education series as set out in Schedule 1 of these terms (Webinar); and

4.b Browse and click on at least one EOFY resource from Xero’s EOFY page for small businesses or Xero’s EOFY page for Xero partners

5. No payment is required in order to (i) register and attend the webinars, or (ii) enter the Competition.

6. There is a limit of one entry per Eligible Entrant.

7. For the purposes of the Competition, an “Eligible Entrant” will be the SMB or Partner who owns the Xero billing account, and excludes any subscriber trialling an unpaid version of the Starter, Standard or Premium plan and any subscriber in arrears on their subscription payments (unless otherwise specified by Xero in writing).

8. Eligible Entrants will have a chance to win a gift box up to the value of $100 (Prize). There are 24 Prizes available to be won across all four Webinars (6 Prizes will be drawn in respect of each Webinar and of those 6 draws, three will be drawn in June following the June seminars and three will be drawn in July following the July webinars). The Prizes for each Webinar will be drawn at random using a random computer number generator at Xero’s Melbourne office at Level 3/260 Burwood Road, Hawthorn VIC 3122 from all correct entries following the end of the Competition Period and no later than 7 days after the Competition Period (Winners). For the avoidance of doubt, Eligible Entrants who register for a June webinar will be drawn at random from the pool of all other entrants who register for a June webinar, and similarly, Eligible Entrants who register for a July webinar will be drawn from that July pool. The Winners will be announced accordingly with three winners announced in June and then another three in July.

9. The Winners will be notified using the contact details you give us or as registered with the Winner’s Xero subscription. If we have made a reasonable attempt to contact a Winner, and a Winner has not responded within three (3) business days, or a Winner is unable to use the Prize, the Prize will be forfeited and Xero will randomly choose another Winner. In the event of any dispute, Xero’s decision is final.

10. The Winners will be published on Xero’s website at https://www.xero.com/au/campaign/eofy-webinar-competition by no later than 7 days after the Competition Period and will remain online for 28 days after the Winners are announced.

11. Xero does not warrant that the Prize will meet the Winners’ requirements or that it will be suitable for any particular purpose. To avoid doubt, all implied conditions or warranties are excluded in so far as is permitted by law, including (without limitation) warranties of merchantability and fitness for purpose.

12. The Prize cannot be transferred to others, or exchanged for cash or other benefits and cannot be split.

13. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Xero and its affiliated companies shall not be liable in any way (including, without limitation, in negligence), for any loss or damage whatsoever suffered (including, without limitation, direct, indirect or consequential loss), or for any loss or damage or personal injury suffered or sustained in connection with the Competition.

14. By accepting the Prize, the Winner agrees to participate in any publicity related to their Prize, and that Xero can use the Winners’ likeness, image and/or voice (including photograph, film and/or recording) in any media for an unlimited period of time without payment, to promote Xero and any of its other products.

15. By participating in the Competition and by submitting any contact details, each Participant consents to receive the latest news, special offers, promotions and information from Xero by email, TXT or other channels from time to time. If at any stage you do not want to receive this information then please let us know, or use the ‘unsubscribe’ feature on communications we send you.
