Additionally, a total of an equal number (ie. ten (10)) alternate winners will be announced.

All winners will be notified on the contact phone number they have registered on their Lidl Plus account, within fourteen (14) working days from the time that they won. If a winner does not contact within five (5) working days from the day of attempt to contact him or if it is not possible to contact him at all, this will mean lapse of his claim (the inability to notify the winner will be fully proven by the simple confirmation of the official in charge). After the winner is informed of his winning, a form will be sent to him which he must complete, sign and send to Lidl Cyprus so that the prize money can be deposited in the winner's bank account. If, due to the provision of inaccurate details, the telephone number is invalid, the claim to the prize and the participation will be deleted without replacement. Each winner must have a bank account in a bank of Cyprus in his name or be a co-beneficiary and must provide proof. Any charges that might arise (from the bank of each winner) through the process of depositing the prize money to the account of the winner, will be borne by him. Each participant is solely responsible for the complete, correct completion and submission of his data (in his account in the Lidl Plus application, in the form on lidl.com.cy that he will submit his participation and in the other forms / data that will be needed), while, in case of relevant shortcomings, the organizer preservers the right to exclude him from the competition.
In case any winner does not submit all the forms / data needed regarding the prize procedure within seven (7) days from the moment he was informed about it, then he permanently loses his right to the relevant prize and the prize will be given to an alternate winner, in order of priority. The prizes are specific and cannot be redeemed or exchanged. They are, also, personal.
