THE VOICE KIDS UK SERIES 3 VOTE: VOTING INTERACTION INFORMATION
Voting method and cost:
Viewers in the UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands may vote for which contestant(s) they wish to win the competition as specified in ‘The Voice Kids UK Series 3’ programme (the “programme”) by one of the following methods:
· Phone: Dial the premium rate‘09’ number as stated in the programme and follow instructions. You will hear a short message thanking you for your vote. Each phone vote costs 50 pence plus your network access charge. The total cost will be dependent on your network operator. Viewers can find out more information about the amount that their mobile operator will charge them by visiting http://www.accesscharge.uk/; but the Promoter and producers of the programme recommend that for the most up to date charges viewers enquire directly with their mobile network operator.
· Mobile short dial codes(“MSDC”) (also known as voice short code): UK mobile users dial the number which is the MSDC for the chosen contestant as displayed in the programme and listen to the recorded message which confirms the MSDC vote. Each vote via a UK mobile to a MSDC costs 50 pence. MSDC voting is only available from a mobile phone. It is not possible to vote by calling the MSDCs from a landline or via any other method. Call charges may apply if the number is mis-dialled but is a valid number. The Promoter gives no warranty that the MSDC service will be available, legal or appropriate for use in locations outside the UK.
15 pence from each vote goes to Make-A-Wish® UK(charity registered in England and Wales under registration number 295672, and registered in Scotland under registration number SC037479. Registered office is329-331 London Road, Camberley, Surrey, GU115 3HQ).
If there are technical or other issues with the PRTS or MSDC votes, the Promoter reserves the right to discount the PRTS or MSDC votes (as applicable) and announce the result of the vote without including those affected votes.
The Promoter is unable to confirm the integrity of and is not responsible for any vote services promoted outside the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man or for any unofficial voting methods as these are not within their control. Votes must not be sent in through agents or on behalf of another person, and viewers cannot submit votes as an agent of any other person. The Promoter and the programme producers reserve the right to discount votes if they have reasonable grounds to suspect they have been made from outside the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, from unofficial third party voting services or otherwise in breach of any applicable terms and conditions.
If for any reason there is a discrepancy between the numbers advertised on air and those given on any other platforms, then the numbers on air will prevail and the vote shall proceed on that basis.
Please note it is not possible to vote via any method not stated in these terms and conditions.
Vote lines are opened and closed on Saturday 27July 2019 as specified in the programme.
While you may vote as many times as you like, the Promoter believes that any votes for one contestant, which are received from any one recognised number in excess of six hundred (600) votes, are deemed to be designed to excessively manipulate the outcome of the vote and are unfair to other users and other contestants. Therefore, if you vote for one contestant more than six hundred (600) times from any one platform, the Promoter and the programme producers reserve the right to disqualify any votes made above that number, having regard to all the circumstances and information available at the relevant time. The Promoter and/or the Programme producers may in their sole discretion contact voters who have voted in excess of the permitted levels.
The outcome of the vote will be shown in the programme. The four (4) finalists will perform and the contestant with the most votes will be announced the winner of the competition.
In the event of a tie in the public vote, the joint winners will share the prize between them.
If any of the contestant(s) are unable to perform or are prevented from performing fully in the programme for any reason including without limitation medical reasons, that contestant may at the producer's discretion be given another opportunity to perform taking into account the circumstances at the time, having regard to all circumstances and information available to them at the relevant time. The producers of the programme will in their sole discretion determine if another contestant may be allowed to enter the competition.
In the event that any of the contestant(s)withdraw from the competition either due to illness or other reasons then the programme will continue with one person less.
If illness / nerves / injury prevent any of the contestant(s) from performing in the final or interrupts their performance,that contestant may at the producer’s discretion be given another opportunity to perform taking into account the circumstances at the time. If that contestant is unable to perform, that contestant shall withdraw from the programme. If the contestant has already performed/part performed they can still be judged and voted for.
If the outcome of a vote cannot be reasonable determined because of a technical failure or for any other reasons beyond the programme producer’s or ITV’s reasonable control, the result will be announced or the vote will be run on the programme This Morning the following Monday.
