Your entry is only valid if:
    1. you use the Gas Checker in the period between 5 March and 8 April 2018 (both dates inclusive), and

  3. Selection of Winners:

    2. The Gas Hub will notify each prize winner by the contact details provided in the Can You Connect gas hot water package giveaway online entry form.
    3. If you are one of those winners, you must:
      1. give The Gas Hub notice of whether you accept, or decline, the prize. (As part of that decision making, The Gas Hub will arrange for its nominated certifying gasfitter to visit each winner’s house to give a (no obligations on a winner) quote for the full price for installation of the Paloma system). You must tell The Gas Hub of your decision within seven days of getting that quote, and
      2. agree to the Residential Gas Connection Terms and Conditions to accept the prize.
    4. If a winner declines the prize (or does not notify The Gas Hub of its acceptance of the prize within seven days of being notified that they have won the prize or agree to the Residential Gas Connection Terms and Conditions), The Gas Hub will select, at random, another winner of the prize from eligible entries.
  4. Installation:
    1. The Gas Hub will nominate a certified gasfitter to install the Paloma system at each prize winner’s home.
    2. Each prize winner must enter into an installation agreement with that gasfitter.
    3. The Gas Hub will pay the nominated gasfitter up to $1,800 (including GST) towards installation costs of the Paloma system.
    4. Each prize winner is responsible for:
      1. any installation costs that exceed $1,800 (including GST), and
      2. any other gasfitter charges.
    5. The Gas Hub is not a party to the installation agreement and is not responsible to a prize winner for the gasfitter’s actions.
    6. If installation of the Paloma system at a prize winner’s home is not started within six months of The Gas Hub giving that winner notice of being a winner, The Gas Hub may (in its absolute discretion and without being liable to that winner) withdraw that prize.
  5. Privacy: The Gas Hub may use:
    1. any of your personal information you provide to The Gas Hub in connection with this prize draw for Powerco’s future marketing campaigns, and
