One submission of the on-line voting form is allowed per person,
per annual awards. Voting more than once will render all of
your votes invalid except as noted in condition (7). If you
are unsure of certain categories, wait until you have finalised
all your votes for all your desired categories before you
vote. You are not allowed to vote more than once even if you
vote in different categories each time. When you do vote,
you can vote for as many or as few categories as you wish.
2. You must fill in the information requested on the voting
form properly and honestly. In the event of an invalid or
illegible or incomplete entry, your votes will become invalid.
3. You must fill in your personal details and contact details.
Entries with missing or invalid details will become invalid.
4. Our decision on the integrity and validity of any vote
is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
5. You may not vote for: a) Your own company b) Your own services
c) Your own fireworks (if you are a manufacturer) OR if the
firework is manufactured exclusively for your company d) Your
own website e) Any other award with which you are commercially
6. We reserve the right to disqualify any nominee in the event
of abuse of the voting system. Our decision on this is final
and no correspondence will be entered into.
7. When you submit your vote, we will confirm your votes to
you by e-mail to the e-mail address that you enter. This e-mail
contains a coded link unique to your vote. You must click
on this link (or cut and paste it into a browser) and visit
that page to verify your vote. By doing this, it proves to
us that your e-mail address is genuine. You must do this within
the time period specified in the e-mail, or your vote will
become invalid. If your vote becomes invalid through expiry,
you may NOT vote again. You will also have the option to CANCEL
your vote for example if you have entered data incorrectly.
You may only CANCEL a vote within the time period specified
in the e-mail. If you cancel a vote in this manner, you MAY
vote again - but please note that once you have confirmed
your vote, you cannot then cancel it, and you cannot cancel
a vote after the time period specified in the e-mail (after
which time it becomes invalid). If you wish to cancel your
vote and vote again, you must first cancel your vote as instructed
in the e-mail and then vote again. Do not vote again before
cancelling a vote or it will render both votes invalid.
8. Submission of the voting form is considered as acceptance
We do not allow anonymous voting. Your personal details are
ONLY used to confirm the validity and integrity of your vote.
2. We will not use your details for any other purpose. We
will not maintain any written or electronic mailing list during
or after the awards close. We will not sell or transfer or
share your details with any other organisation except as noted
in condition (7).
3. We will contact you by e-mail to confirm your votes and
to ask you to validate your vote. In such a case you must
follow the instructions to validate your vote and complete
the voting process. This is done to prevent bulk voting using
fake e-mail addresses. We will also contact you by e-mail
to confirm your vote has been validated, and (if applicable)
to confirm your vote has been cancelled at your request, that
your validation link has expired and so on. We may further
contact you by e-mail, telephone or post to check your identity
and therefore the validity of your vote. These are the ONLY
circumstances in which we might contact you. Any contact we
attempt to make with you is done so specifically to check
the validity of your vote.

fill in the required details accurately and truthfully. Your
votes will be invalid, otherwise.
