    Nice compo. Have no kids will have to borrow 2 from somewhere lucky little buggers.


      I hear it's easy to grab a couple from a local school, could give that a go? By the time you've had them for the duration, you'd be glad to get rid of them!


    Got this email:

    I'm writing to let you know there has been a security breach and certain data may have been accessed through a third-party cloud server used by NZME. The server housed personal data collected through a small number of competitions, and some NZME client data.

    We know the server held data from the Secret Life of Pets Win a Family Trip to NYC promotion, including name, email, phone, date of birth, gender, city (but no passwords). We have this information because you recently entered this competition.

    Although the server and your data has now been secured, it is possible that unauthorised persons have accessed your personal information. Due to the nature of the personal information held on the server, you may be exposed to increased spam, and potentially phishing emails (phishing is where a fraudster tries to learn information such as login details or account information by pretending to be a reputable company or person by email or other communication channels).

    Following the end of the competition we will contact the winner by phone. In no circumstances will NZME or Paramount Pictures ever ask you for your password, account details or other sensitive information by email, txt or phone. If you receive any suspected phishing emails or other suspicious communications please report to [email protected]

    NZME takes privacy and data security very seriously, and we’re doing everything we can to determine the details and extent of the security breach and to protect against future threats.

    We have notified the Privacy Commission regarding the breach. Should you wish to contact the Privacy Commission directly with any concerns, the number is 0800 803 909 or email: [email protected]

    We apologise for any concern this may cause you. If you have any further questions for us, please email [email protected]. For further information about how to protect yourself online please see: www.idcare.org

      From reddit:


      Thanks for playing the Spark Arcade game recently. It’s a promotion we set up with our partner NZME. Unfortunately, we’ve been advised that there has been a security breach on a server used by NZME, hosting the Spark Arcade website.

      This means some information about you (your name, email address and mobile number, whether you won a Spark Arcade prize or not, and if you did, what that prize was) was vulnerable to access by a third-party.

      We’re not currently aware of any information theft.

      As soon as we were aware of the problem, we asked NZME to take the Spark Arcade site offline. The information was then removed from NZME and placed on a secure Spark server. We’re not currently aware that any information has been downloaded by third parties, but NZME has confirmed that certain information housed on the server may have been accessed by unknown parties. Because you played Spark Arcade before 26 September 2016, it’s good to be vigilant.

      We’re very disappointed that this has occurred and would like to apologise sincerely for any concern it causes you.

      Keep an eye out for strange emails, texts or calls.

      Given that it’s possible someone other than us may know the Spark Arcade prize details, there is some risk that you may be targeted in a 'phishing' scam. This is an attempt by someone to get more information from you by impersonating a brand or individual such as Spark, Spark Arcade or Spark staff. So, please be vigilant about all emails, texts and phone calls you receive, especially if they ask you to click a link or ask you for more information.

      Go to h​ttp​://w​ww​.spark​.co​.nz/phishing to read more about 'phishing' scams and how to better protect yourself.

      Given this situation, we will not send you any emails or texts about Spark Arcade that include a clickable link or request any information from you. So if you receive anything of that nature, please send the communication to ​s​camhelp​@​s​park​.​co​.​nz​ (as an attachment) and delete the communication. This may help us prevent that source from sending further scams.

      Go to h​ttp​://w​ww​.spark​.co​.nz/sparkarcade to read more about this issue.

      Again, we would like to apologise and we’re working really hard to make sure things like this don’t happen in the future.

      Thanks, The team at Spark

        Interesting, so not just one comp that had its data lost. You might want to close this comp, looks like it's not up any more.
