We safeguard promotions for the public.
Entering promotions should be a fun and pleasurable experience. However, for many consumers, there is still a lack of trust regarding the industry. They are cynical and suspicious and this will reduce rates of participation and entry. Going to the time, trouble and often cost of purchasing an instant win product, entering a prize draw or creating a competition entry means you want to know that the promotion is being run fairly.
Although most reputable brands take the time to ensure their promotions are compliant with best practice and the Codes, the weekly list of Rulings from the Advertising Standards Authority show that there is still a big problem with those who are ignorant of the rules for promotions. Some of the issues include;
- Winners being picked unfairly
- Closing dates being extended
- No list of winners being published
- No set of Terms and Conditions to refer to, or they are incomplete
- Fake votes being included in voting promotions
- Winners not receiving their prize or receiving it late
- A different prize to the one originally promoted being awarded
PromoVeritas exists to help promoters avoid making these mistakes and to keep promotions safe and entertaining for you, the public, to enter. Our name is synonymous with promotional compliance worldwide, so if you see our name written in the Terms of a promotion you can be secure in the knowledge that it is safe to enter. However, we are not a Consumer watchdog organisation, so if, as a member of the public, you do come across a promotion that is not run fairly, then in the UK you should raise a complaint with the Advertising Standards Authority at www.asa.org.uk.
There was clear communication throughout the process and whenever we had to make some last minute changes they were very accommodating. They did all of that heavy lifting while ensuring at all times the prize draw was run in a compliant way I would use them again.
We have worked with PromoVeritas for the last 2 years on a number of projects. PromoVeritas operate in a flexible, highly collaborative fashion, giving us the experienced advice we need.
I’ve worked with PromoVeritas for almost 6 years and regard them highly for their excellent and timely advice and how they help us overcome promotional challenges. I always recommend to my clients that they should involve PromoVeritas when running a promotion.

In terms of the proposal, you have been brilliant and really great/easy to work with on this. You turned around the proposal extremely quickly and did so under a lot of pressure. You have always been available - especially when questions have needed to be answered quickly – and extremely approachable. We haven’t yet gone ahead with the proposed work with Mars, but I can definitely say I have the upmost confidence in these next steps we will be taking with you and that the promotion will be a success!
We have worked closely with PromoVeritas for a number of years now and their expertise and input from day 1 of every campaign has proved invaluable. The Account Handlers are extremely efficient and flexible and their eye for detail and knowledge of all aspects of promotions is second to none. From developing terms and conditions to advice on running promotions in other markets, they are always our go to for a quick and informed solution and I would highly recommend them to others.
We have run some complex promotions this year across a number of countries worldwide. They provided clear guidance from the very outset of the campaign, advising on the rules and the terms and conditions, and identifying every point for possible contention. The competition required a meticulous eye on the rules and on fair play, and PromoVeritas were there for the duration ensuring that the rules of the competition were strictly adhered to throughout. Without the pragmatic solution driven approach from PromoVeritas we wouldn't have been able to get the communication off the ground. They were great to work with and real experts in their field. Thanks for all your help.

They are always incredibly helpful and willing to help, no matter what the request. We work with PromoVeritas a lot, and they are continuously a delight to work with - would highly recommend them!

I highly recommend Promoveritas and all the teams that work with us.
