The DISOVERY MARCH CONTESTS (hereinafter, the “Contest”) is a global competition organised by GHA Loyalty DMCC (a Dubai company with a registered office at  21st Floor, JBC5 Tower, Jumeirah Lake Towers, PO Box 487771, Dubai, UAE) (the “Contest Sponsor”). The Contest starts on 1 March 2016 at 12:00 a.m. GMT and closes on 31 March 2016 at 11:59 p.m. PST (hereinafter, the “Contest Period”).

1. Eligibility
The Contest is open only to members of the DISCOVERY loyalty program who are resident in a territory where the Contest is not prohibited or restricted by law and who have reached the legal age of majority in their country of residence prior to the Contest Period (an “Eligible Participant”). Employees, representatives or agents of the Contest Sponsor and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including employees of hotel operating companies or hotels within the Global Hotel Alliance, media partners, advertising and promotional agencies, and members of the immediate family (parents, children, siblings and spouse, regardless of where they are domiciled) of any of the aforementioned persons with whom any of the aforementioned are domiciled are not eligible to enter the Contest.

2. How to participate in the Contest
Eligible Participants must make a new hotel booking, redeem a local experience award, or play the digital scavenger hunt on GHA.com during the Contest Period. A new booking is defined as a booking that has been created for the first time with a new booking confirmation number during the Contest Period. One booking equals one entry into the Contest.  Any booking made or any local experience award redeemed prior to the start of the Contest that is subsequently changed, modified or altered in any way during the Contest Period will not be considered a new booking or new redeemed local experience award. The Eligible Participant who will be entered into the Contest will be the person who makes the booking and provides his/her contact and payment information at time of booking. Therefore, the Eligible Participant may or may not be the actual travelling hotel guest. If an Eligible Participant makes a booking during the Contest Period and the booking is subsequently refunded or cancelled, the Eligible Participant’s entry will be withdrawn from participation in the Contest. A maximum of 10 entries will be included per person in each drawing.
