In the event of potential extension or postponement of the Competition, the deadline for sending requests to obtain the rules and regulations, and reimbursement of postage and associated costs, will be delayed accordingly.
ARTICLE 10 – CONNECTION AND USE
Europcar reminds participants of the characteristics and limits of the Internet, particularly in terms of technical performance, response times to consult or transfer information, and the risks of contamination through potential viruses circulating on the network. As a result, it denies all responsibility for any consequences experienced by Participants as a result of their Internet connection.
ARTICLE 11 – REIMBURSEMENT OF PARTICIPATION AND CONNECTION COSTS
All Participants in the Competition who have met the conditions for access and participation in the Competition as specified in these rules and regulations may obtain reimbursement for the costs incurred to participate in the Competition, by sending a written request to Europcar International – Service Marketing Produit - Jeu Tirage au sort ToMyDoor – Parc d’Affaires "Le Val Saint Quentin" - 2 rue René Caudron – 78960 VOISINS-LE-BRETONNEUX (FRANCE) by 7 May 2016 at midnight (as determined by the postmark date) or no later than ten (10) calendar days following the date indicated on the relevant invoice of the Internet service provider if this is received by the Participant after the aforementioned deadline.
Reimbursement for communications may be obtained upon written request to the Competition address only if access to the Competition has been via a modem and a telephone line billed on a pro rata basis according to connection time. Reimbursement will be granted based on documents providing proof of the connection time to access the Competition and the rate applied by the Internet service provider.
Any costs incurred in postage of the reimbursement request will be reimbursed upon submission of a written request to this effect together with the request for reimbursement of connection fees, at the current second-class postage rate (weight: 20 g).

Any requests which are incomplete, illegible and/or sent to a different address other than that of the Competition or sent after the deadline specified above (as determined by the postmark date) will be considered invalid and will not be accepted.
However, as is the case with certain service offers, some Internet providers offer Participants a free or all-inclusive connection, in which case it is expressly agreed that any access to the Europcar webpage containing the Questionnaire and information to be completed, which is performed on a free or all-inclusive tariff (such as a cable, ADSL or dedicated line connection), may not give rise to any form of reimbursement. In cases such as this, the subscription to the Internet service provider's services is taken out by the Participant for their general use of the Internet and no additional costs are incurred by the Participant when connecting to the Europcar webpage containing the form to be completed and submitted for participation in the Competition.
Similarly, no reimbursement will be granted for any IT or electronic material used to participate in the Competition, as the Participants acknowledge and declare to own said material for their own personal use.
