6. Prize Draw

The following applies to Prize Draws operated by Engdanskot Ltd.

Who can enter

Each Prize Draw is open to UK, Channel Island and Isle of Man residents aged 18 years or over only, excluding employees of Engdanskot Ltd, their immediate families, and anyone else professionally connected with the Prize Draw. 

For Prize Draw entry, entrants must use fotspot and have created at least one fotspot.  

By entering the Prize Draw, you hereby give us permission if you win to contact you via your mobile phone number. This is our only means of contacting you directly, and allows us to confirm your Prize Draw participation and communication of any further information relating to this.


Your mobile phone number will be used only for internal administrative purposes relating to the Prize Draw.

Opening/closing date and time

The opening date and closing date and time for entries are as indicated in the interaction information. Any entries received before the Prize Draw opens or after the closing date and time will not be included in the Prize Draw.

Winner selection & contact

The draw will take place within one week of the closing date and time for all entries.

Subject to eligibility and compliance with all applicable terms and conditions, the first entry drawn from all eligible entries will win the First Prize.

We will contact the winner by calling their mobile phone using the number they provided when they entered the Prize Draw.

If the winner cannot be contacted within 30 days from when the first contact attempt is made or if the winner fails to meet any of the eligibility requirements or is otherwise unable to comply with the terms and conditions, this may result in forfeiture of the prize and we reserve the right to disqualify that entrant (without further liability to that entrant) and offer the prize to the next eligible entrant and thereafter until a winner is found.

How to enter and the cost of entry

Download the fotspot app and follow the instructions to enter the Prize Draw.

The Prize Draw is free to enter.

Entrants must use fotspot.

Entrants must have created one or more fotspots before they enter the Prize Draw. 


The First Prize is a ticket or tickets to the advertised event.

The ticket or tickets will be delivered within twenty-eight (28) days of the winner confirmation subject to the event supplier.  A signature may be required upon delivery.

For the avoidance of doubt, the First Prize excludes any other associated costs and expenses incurred. 

The First Prize is subject to the terms and conditions of the suppliers of the event.

7. Change of Control

  • If we sell or otherwise transfer part or all of fotspot to another organization (e.g. we are bought, merge with another company, become bankrupt, dissolved, liquidated), your information, User Content and any other information collected through the Service may be among the items sold or transferred.

8. Responding to legal requests and preventing harm

  • If the law requires us to do so we may access, preserve and share your information in response to a legal request.

  • We may also access, preserve and share information when we believe it is necessary to prevent harm to you, others or us.

9. Deleting your information

How long we keep your User Content:

  • We will display User Content until it expires, or the account is terminated or deactivated.

  • Following termination or deactivation of your account, fotspot or its Service Providers may retain your account information and your User Content for a commercially reasonable time.

  • Remember third parties may still retain copies of your public information, like your user profile information and fotspots, even after you or we have deleted the information from fotspot or deactivated your account.
