From time-to-time MrPRICE will run competitions and promotions via our Facebook page. Only your Facebook account name will be recorded if you opt to enter the competition.

Occasionally Mr. Price will request a postal address if the competition winner is unable to collect the prize themselves. This address will not be used for any other purpose other than posting the prize.
